Just to remind those new to the game, obstruction is ignored/superseded if the runner does not make a legal slide.

In the OP, I don't believe this to be the case since the fielder caused the...

Then you would be incorrect. The rule book does not require a slide directly into the base. It can reached by a hand or foot. The rule has already been cited.

There cannot be a FPSR without the...

Really? You said that?

In the OP, the runner did not interfere with the throw. The fielder deflected it - the play involves defensive error.

You appear to be assuming things not in evidence. There is nothing illegal about sliding to the inside of the bag. You cannot pretend that the runner didn't know that the play would end but absolve...

You cite that the slide occurs after the fielder has booted the ball and it has rolled away. I have a hard time protecting a fielder if the slide is otherwise legal - i.e. in compliance with 2-32. ...

Ask Tom Gamboa about being attacked by disturbed fans. Well, they were White Sox fans so that may be redundant.

Still, I don't want to see an umpire take matters into his own hands. The clown is...

That's a good thing since calling OBS after a player has scored would be contrary to the rules.

he is not forcing a runner to slide, nor am I. He is awaiting a throw and in a perfect world, that throw would be to the 3B side of the dish. I have rarely seen a high school...

MTD -
The position of the catcher (in foul territory, past the plate) is irrelevant with regards to MC. R3 can score and still be charged with MC for his actions after touching home.
