Evidence That Humberto Quintero Picked Off Ian Stewart

New, 3 comments

During the seventh inning of Wednesday night's game against the Rockies, Astros catcher Humberto Quintero attempted to pick off Rockies second baseman Ian Stewart after Stewart took a large lead lead off first base. Q made the throw, and Lance Berkman appeared to tag Stewart before he could touch the bag. Umpire Tim Timmons, however, called Stewart safe.

You decide. Keep in mind, Stewart's left hand is far removed from the base, though this picture does not allow for us to see this clearly.

Bad month for umpires, eh?
