Not that it will change anything but does it matter that Craig NEVER TOUCHED HOME PLATE?? Rule 7.04(d), which at least discusses the fact that a runner who fails to touch the base to which he is entit more »

The 'letter of the law' argument is a convenient rationalization to excuse the umpires for not using discretion. It is the winning run in a World Series game, let the players decide it.

It was horrible. Doubrant had what should have been 2 called third strikes against Holliday and those same low strikes were called against Victorino (I believe) the next half inning. Ellsbury had pi more »
Forum Post: Hakeem Nicks or Josh Gordon anyone?
Posted 10/27/2013 12:47:53 EDT
On what planet did the Giants "view Nicks as their #1 receiver coming into the season". They paid Cruz and not Nicks. Agree that the Pats would be wise to kick the tires on finding another WR but do more »

Salty should have put it in his pocket but there were a lot of 'should haves' to go around.

Posted 10/27/2013 12:09:03 EDT
Like most rules in baseball, it is open to interpretation, the word "likely" even appears in the rule, meaning the umps have some discretion. In this case discretion could have let the umps decide th more »

I trace it back to the top of the 7th when Gomes PH for Doubrant. Farrell emptied his bench in that inning and apparently wanted to save a Napoli PH for a later time. It was a mistake. I think it w more »

"He was literally right on the chalk." Jim Joyce.
Not only does he not know what "on the chalk" means but he also does not know what "literally" means. I look forward to his crying apology.

I'd guess we've seen the last of Middlebrooks in this series. He was bad in the field. The Holliday ball was very playable and the final play he has to come off the bag to field Salty's bad throw. S more »

The rush of Torre and the talking heads to tell us this was the right call is infuriating. It was not the right call. Joyce said that Craig was "On the chalk". That is utter BS.
