Last week Howie Kendrick of the Angels hit an inside the park home run, or so he thought. That home run was taken away Friday and ruled an error on Kansas City right fielder Jose Guillen.

The MLB deserves credit for overruling the official scorer. It was a play that should have been made.

Guillen had a long way to go to get to the ball but got there in time and should have made the play.

Instead, Guillen dropped the ball and it rolled to wall. Kendrick crossed home plate standing up for the "home run."

Official scorers are giving hits out like candy on Halloween these days and it needs to stop. I don't care how much you like a player, if he misses a play he should have made, it is an error.
