2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Regarding the Fowler play, it seems like it shouldn't have been an out. It looks analogous to a play from 1982 (http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/ATL/ATL198209260.shtml) when Terry Harper of the Braves dropped a Gene Richards' fly ball after having run into and toppling over the bullpen fence in Atlanta. Just that Fowler's "drop" took even longer than Harper's did (Harper dropped it after running many steps with the ball in his glove, if I recall; but it was still not a catch).

The plot thickens. (Steven Goldman)
