In the biggest slam-dunk of the survey, 86 of 100 said no way. And some said it louder than others. "As a pitcher, it was heartbreaking to see that," one NL starter said. "But the call had to be overturned on the field, not in the front office." A player from the same team -- also a pitcher -- disagreed with his clubmate. "Do it," he answered. "It was a perfect game. Reverse it, so Galarraga can get his credit and Jim Joyce can get his sleep."
