But that's not what the rule says. It doesn't say "and the pitcher has assumed his position." It says "and the pitcher assumes his position." The pitcher must be in position for this rule to apply.

I'm all for Cece on this one, though I did say I would conform to Roder. but like any good democrat I retain the right to flip flop at any moment, so I'm officially back to Cece.

As far as rebuttal, we were kinda doing that even before Roder and Ceces opinions came out. They've just confirmed what a lot of us determined 2 or 3 pages ago, that this is not a black and white issue.
