And, I think it's a good rule too. Here's why. It's not a punishment for the defense. It's not like a 5 yard penalty for being offside or anything. The sole purpose of the rule is to make the runner whole. There was nothing Middlebrooks could have done, but that doesn't (and shouldn't) matter. When the ball went into the OF, the game was effectively over. Without being tripped up, Craig scores easily, which is what the rule is trying to rectify.
It sucks for Boston. It really does, but they didn't lose the game on obstruction. They lost it on an errant throw. And let's not forget, the only reason Middlebrooks was in Craig's way at all is because of the awful throw that his teammate made.
