I don't have OBS and neither did U2 on it. While watching the game, several replays were shown and U2 was shown in one signaling safe (and probably saying "That's nothing") immediately after the...

No. If a preceding runner makes the 3rd out for any reason, no trailing runs score.

Any of this is possible. Some even say it helps to know where the catcher is going as well b/c they feel the shift.

If any ever did it, as a catcher, I never even noticed. As long as they didn't...

I wonder if Posey's injury from last year (I believe) has anything to do with this. Or, has it just been a growing trend before that?

As soon as F6 was slowly stepping back and calling for it, that is ordinary effort. Oh look, it doesn't say he has to be "camped" under the ball or stationary. He just has to show ordinary effort...

What advantage was gained? He was not more than 3' from his established base path. The call was correct. Or, should I say non-call was correct. And, the tag near the plate was correct as well. ...

At the time of the tag attempt, he was within his 3' lane IMO. Where he ends up after it is complete is irrelevant. F2 was not chasing him with the tag. The tag attempt was less than a second...

All I would say is for those who will not call this an IFR call, just make sure you defend the call with actual rule book support. Saying it is "too deep" or "that is not what I consider ordinary...

I think one thing that is being overlooked is the possibility of F7 coming in on the run and catching it to throw to 3B. And, that would not change the fact that F6 still got to it with ordinary...

That may be. But, I was just wondering if the answer would be in line with the rule. If an umpire "judges" it to not be in line with the rule, by all means, don't call it. Too many are saying b/c...

Another rule does not cover if the ball falls untouched or accidentally. This is the only rule which applies when the ball is still in the air. And, as soon as F6 is there under ordinary effort, it...

Just a question: If a coach asked you why it wasn't an infield fly when his F6 was waiting for the ball to come down when his fielder was 40' in the grass?

Did you cover him at 2B? I would think you were at least halfway to 2B by the time the ball touched the ground. You do go out to the mound (or as far as you can get) on fly balls to the outfield...

Is it that or fans don't like seeing it? Also, it helps to stop some of the deliberate delay. I'm just guessing if these may be reasons for getting rid of it. That and the fact that 99% of them...
