This article is going to be very short, but I really want to know what everyone thinks about this subject.

I hate to bring this up, but it’s almost impossible for me not to ask this hypothetical question:

What would have happened if the “Not-Perfect Game” was pitched by someone other than Armando Galarraga?

In every sport, superstars are beneficiaries of fortunate calls, as well as retrospective rule changes.

What if it had been someone like Zack Greinke, Greg Maddox, Johan Santana, Randy Johnson, C.C. Sabathia, Roger Clemens, or Tim Lincecum?

I’m not just talking about Jim Joyce’s missed call.

I’m also talking about how Bud Selig handled the situation.

Would Selig have been more inclined to overturn the call if it was a more prominent pitcher on a more popular team?

I think it’s possible.

What do you think?
