"The Braves didn’t lose because Rackley blew a call, even one that big. However, they were made more likely to lose because of it, and that’s what drives me crazy. Ranger Suarez didn’t do his job, missing inside with an important pitch. William Contreras did his job, taking that pitch for ball three. David Rackley inserted himself into that moment and changed the game. That’s not a human element, that’s just bad."
