But, the point here, is the score went from 2-2 to 3-2. We were forced to pitch and manage from behind, which (even with Wedge) is much different than pitching and playing from ahead or tied late in games. Who's to say if it is actually only 4-4 in the 9th (and not 5-4) that we go with the pitcher we went with there?
Had the appeal been upheld, the score would have gone back to 2-2 in the 6th inning I believe.

According to reports, had the protest been upheld, the score would have gone back to 2-2 in the inning the "run" was added. That was the whole point of the protest....which was adding a run three innings later.

The whole point of the protest was not whether the call was right or not (the call was right). The point was that they made the correction 3 innings later. The Indians protested that the run should not have been corrected and added three innings later, which was a legitimate beef
What's next? Will they overturn HR calls later in games? What happens with debated fair/foul or yellow line or not HRs? What if later in the game they decide it was/wasn't a HR? That is what the Indians were protesting. You cannot make a change once the play is over and play has resumed.
I mean, it would be like the Browns being tied with the Bengals 10-10 in the 3rd quearter.....but a TD the Bengals scored earlier was nullified because the player supposedly did not have full possession of the ball so they didn't give them the TD originally, but while it clearly was a catch and after talking about it for a quarter, decided to give it to them and make the score 17-10 Bengals.
