That's a good point, and this is a very HTBT play. If the runner was slanting away from the fielder to avoid interfering with them making a play BEFORE the fielder had the ball and was starting to try for a tag, I can see giving them the benefit of the doubt, especially absent some other dodging type move to avoid a tag.

However, if the runner changed direction significantly as the possibility of a tag presented itself, you definitely have a runner avoiding a tag (even if the tag was being made poorly or even inadequately).

That's why they pay us those medium sized sacks of pennies for each game.
