The Tampa Bay Rays had a case. They just had no place to argue it.

In a call that may serve as a flaw in the current replay system, Rays' manager Kevin Cash seemed to have a great point when he went out in the third inning to argue a call on Logan Forsythe, who seemed to easily beat a throw from an infielder.

But Cash was in no-man's land. He had already used his challenge trying to get a call against outfielder Daniel Nava overturned.
And because the game was not yet in the seventh inning, there was no umpires' replay. Meaning that the proper call was not made, and that all Cash could do was argue until he was ejected
