Bad Call In Last Night's Win Versus Merman Demonstrates Why Replay Needed In MLB

Here's the terrible call, albeit in the Rangers favor, on a double play ball when the Rangers were on defense. Watch closely.  Moreland is on 1B waiting for the throw but for some reason Grimm steps in front of him and intercepts the throw.  And Grimm of course isn't on 1B so no double play right?  Wrong.  The ump thinks Moreland caught it:

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Hate to win a game when a terrible of call like that is involved.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: But it wasn't a 1 run game or anything.  The Rangers offense woke up, as it's prone to do every 3-5 games, and put up 9 runs in support of Grimm's start.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Are the powers that be (Selig) really going to say replay isn't needed in MLB?  Really?

besides replay what about every other ump on the field? are you telling me none of them saw that the first baseman didn't catch the ball?
