Hi Pete - I'm alive and kicking, just, as Garth noted, buried with work in the real world. Haven't umpired this year and although I still participate on a couple of mail lists, I've not had much...

From what I have read, your standards are not "higher." They are different, to be sure, but they are not "higher."

Your over-officiousness is at peak levels, though.

Occam's razor. The simplest explanation is the right explanation.

They screwed up. They admitted it. They had a "brain cramp."

I believe the call is 98% hearing it, and if there's doubt you watch for the catcher's reaction, which is almost always to give it away with a little shake of the mitt (he's checking to see if his...

In my opinion, it is plate umpire Marvin Hudson's bad all the way. He waved off the run that clearly scored before the 3rd out was made on appeal. He clearly was operating under the common but...

Wrong setup. Instead, place runners at 1B and 3B. The pitcher comes set, pivots and steps directly towards 2B.

He just balked, the rule is 8.05(d), and "he balked to 2B" is a completely accurate...

Thank you. Amidst an incredible level of noise (I think it's called WOBW) and muddled writing, you have finally correctly and concisely answered the frickin' question.

I think the plate's 17" wide and the bats, even for the little tykes, are 30" long, which kind of argues against your theory.

The bottom line is if you're umpiring a walkathon, nobody's having any...

On the other hand, truth is a valid defense to a charge of slander. Maybe the coach really was a douche bag. :)

Perhaps the answer to the dilemma is to consider the possibility that "blue" is not quite the universal term of derision you portray it to be.

I would echo the comment that you're flirting with the Gerry Davis stance, so why not just go for it. Widen out, which will bring your head down a skotch which is all you need there, and then lock...

"But Blue, the balk is part of his natural motion!"

(I'm not saying the move is a balk - I fully agree with JM, ALL pitchers come off the rubber before they release the ball.)
