Re: All-Star voting

Is McGehee a Cardinal?

I rest my case.


At least as a homer I showed concrete evidence to why your Cardinal player should be watching the game from his lounge chair.

Your case only proved the OPs point that fans [more]

Re: All-Star voting

Not even close. Carpenter should have been voted in.

Not even close? By the numbers McGehee easily beats Carpenter.

Casey McGehee:

leads the NL with 110 hits.

Re: All-Star voting

I think they should take the vote away from the manager when he wants to place one of his own players in place of another.

Casey McGehee is more deserving than Carpenter does at 3b.

Re: Unusual dropped third strike

According to your description, if the ball did touch the ground before entering the catchers mitt then that call was correct too. Rule 6.05:

(b) A third strike is legally caught by the catcher;
Rule 6.05(b) Comment: “Legally caught”

6.09 The batter becomes a runner when—
(a) He hits a fair ball;
(b) The third strike called by the umpire is not caught, providing (1) first base is unoccupied,
or (2)

Re: MLB: Hit, not error

MLB is over-ruling a judgement call. The scorer looked at the play and felt that the ball should have been caught. Now MLB has looked at it and is saying that it could not have been caught. Or at least that it is questionable as to wether or not [more]

Re: MLB: Hit, not error

The "rule" has always been that if nobody touches the ball, it's a hit. OTOH, Buckner was given a error in the WS for a ball going thru his legs without touching it, so I dunno.

The key to deciding is could the play be made [more]

Re: Yu Darvish - loses no-hit with 2 in 9th

So... was it the "the worst ruling in Major League Baseball history"? (Would be a much more interesting discussion but for Big Papi's hit in the ninth inning.)

Re: Trivia 2.0

After further review, the question as asked, is correct. It was for stepfather and Werth is the answer.

However for natural bloodlines Coleman and Hairston are correct.

Re: Miffed at Official Scores

I figured there was a logical explanation. I was so focused on the sequence of the events that I didn't pay attention to how Ludwick got on base.
