If the guy had come out between innings and asked civilly, I would have succinctly told him such a play is NOT a foul tip. He did not.

After the game, he shrugged by me and said, "I'm STILL not...

How much 'splaining should we do?

As someone else said, I was also on an inferior board for a short time.

I found that a majority of umps there spoke up in favor of explaining calls to coaches who inquire. Most often, using too...

Two burning questions:

a) Shouldn't Demuth have called "time" as soon as the tag was applied, then given the award?

b) what if Craig stays at third? Any award?

It's still OBS. Runner has every right to be progress unimpeded when a play is not being made on him.

Now, august group, what happens if Craig dusts himself off and stays at third? Is there an...

Yep, I've got a train wreck, and, as Rich said, same result, except original R2 is now on 3B and R3 is out in the pickle.

Six-man crews allow more overweight people to get "the nod."

Batter Out of Box in MLB

I am seeing this more often as of late: batters really hanging that rear foot behind the dish on bunt attempts.

Yes, I know. The ump's there; I'm not. But I've seen some instances that look fairly...

What bothers me is that 98% of the media is regarding this call as a gross error. From any angle, the play was dang close, IMHO.

I thought the officiating in this game was lackluster. 8 fouls on Indiana the whole game. I felt they were holding Wyatt often in the second half.

I know you astute arbiters will disagree.

BTW, I thought this was an egregiously bad call. Look at the advantage Ichiro gained. But once again, he's a Yankee, they lost and NO ONE in the media had a quibble.
