Dave Trembley has plenty to worry about already, but he did weigh in on the debate about Armando Galarraga's almost-perfect game, joining the chorus in favor of an NFL-style replay-on-appeal system.
"I'm in favor of what Gardy (Twins manager Ron Gardenhire) said, to have the red flag and you could throw the red flag and have so many appeals,'' Trembley said. "I thought Gardy's idea was the best. I don't think it will ever happen."
Trembley was asked whether he felt worse for the Galarraga, or embarrassed and contrite umpire Jim Joyce.
"I feel bad for the game,'' he said. "The game lost a historic moment. That's what I feel bad for, the game."
And, finally, should Major League Baseball review the play and, perhaps, award a perfect game to Galarraga. MLB officials were meeting this morning to review the situation.
"That's done,'' Trembley said. "I was surprised that they'd even comment on it. I don't think you'd want to comment on it, you just bring more attention to it...You do for this and you're not going to do it for something else? You going to go back for 1985 with the Royals and St. Louis and Don Denkinger at first base and you going or review that and reward the World Series to the other team? They can't do it. My opinion, Dave Trembley, my opinion. Can't do it."
