Considering he was obviously rooting for it to be fair as hard as he could, I do find it of value that he never argued it at all. He just looks down and goes back to the box.
I am biased though. Hard to tell. Looks like it might have changed based on the replay but there is also a lot of grains and shadows involved as well. If they had ruled it a HR I am not sure it would have changed either.
C'mon now. You think Nate is going to sell it to the umps that he thinks he hit the pole? The guy is 300 + ft. away from it. That's absurd logic.
