This Week in the Unwritten Rules

This Week in the Unwritten Rules

A week shortened by Memorial Day gives us a truncated list of Code violations.

June 1
Nearly everybody respected the Code during Roy Halladay’s perfect game (and those that didn’t still couldn’t jinx it).

June 2
Carlos Gomez put on a whale of a show while pimping his homer. His saving grace: contrition after the fact.

June 3
Jim Joyce blows a perfect game for Armando Galarraga. Had he hewn to the Code, he never would have made that mistake.

June 4
For those who thought Joyce set the umpiring profession back a generation, a Triple-A call-up showed them how it’s really done.
