Default New umpire focus on catch transfers?

Watching the Cleveland feed tonight and they're talking about a call that went against them yesterday.

http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/6381756...?query=indians

Reminds me a lot of what happened to Eaton last week:

http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/6381756...h/?query=white

This time, however, the umpires called it "no catch" on the field and it was upheld after Cleveland challenged. And this looked a lot more like a definite catch than Eaton's. Apparently it's an area that is being watched more closely this season - the transfer from glove to hand must be clean or else no catch.

I think it's silly.

Luckily the Sox didn't get burned on one of these calls because I'd be ****ING IRATE

John I-am-not-a Kruk mentioned this same thing during a game broadcast about a week ago. How can you just change the rules or their interpretation midseason?

Can you retroactively play a game under protest?

Eaton got a catch reversed in one of the first games of the season, I don't recall if there were any effects on the scoreboard as a result.

Glad the rule has changed.
