Astros vs Rangers on 6-10. Texas closer clearly balks (he tried to quick pitch and never came set) with a runner on third but it is missed and the pitch happens. After the pitch the manager comes out...

Are you kidding me? His positioning was AWFUL! I don't do six man like they do in the postseason, but with 6 umpires on the diamond, what else should he be doing? Isn't R1's touch of second Nelson's...

All the other arguments aside, what just annoys me to no end about this "gross miss" is that Nelson is at fault for failing to be in better position. I've heard the angle versus distance argument...

I am curious to know what happened earlier in the game between Molina and Rob Drake? This seemed to be an FU kind of call. The pitch wasn't even close. Players have a great view of the inside corner...

Look, Joyce missed the call, no doubt. No matter how the play developed, the call was a gross miss, at the worst possible time.

But the play was NOT routine. I watched numerous replays and the...

The only problem with I had with the call is that it took him too long to realize that the double hit he heard wasn't the ball hitting the batter. By pausing and not pointing to the batter, the PU...

I wasn't very happy about the hit batsmen call on the bunt. I'm surprised that no one has yet to bring up a very obvious point. I have read here and been told that if you have a doubt about a hit...

Why should have McClelland signaled safe any faster? Watch the replay again. There was NO TAG. The catcher never caught the ball. It was banging around against his body and then rolled away from him....

I don't think the replay is conclusive one way or the other. There was not a tag when the runner arrived. The catcher knew he didn't have the ball and didn't bother.

I would agree with those that...

You are either blind of a member of "the Nation". Youkalis took 4 steps to get away from the tag. It was blatantly obvious on the replay and shouldn't have been missed in the first place.
