Oh I thought only Johnny Rivers got that
Yes, as written the rule puts the onus on the catcher not to get in the way when he doesn't have the ball (though it gives some leeway for being in the act of fielding it). So no rule change is...
I thought that was when rich people had the flu...
I agree there is no need to change the way the rule is worded regarding the catcher blocking home plate.
There is no rule that says it's OK for the runner to light the catcher up when he would...
They did a pretty good job on him in October.
So basically you'd like the game better if the runners can do whatever they want in the act of being tagged in order to force the fielder to drop the ball. It sure would be a lot more exciting if a...
Or shot him down
Well I'd say those might all be readily trumped by Tebow, Ayers, Alphonso Smith, McBath, and Quinn. Plus the boondoggles he helped make of the Cutler and Marshall situations.
Oh, and cue "put them in skirts" hyperbole from Q in 5...4...3..
Well they have rules against it in HS and college, too, so I guess I'd just reiterate what I said after the Scott Cousins/Buster Posey play:
Yeah McD can definitely coach so I gotta believe he'll get another shot at some point soon. So long as he doesn't have any say in personnel he should be fine lol.
Phillies have signed The Artist Formerly Known As Fausto Carmona
+4 on Mike Zimmer. First guy I thought of. Definitely way past due.
And even though he got leapfrogged by Matt Patricia (who will almost certainly be a HC in the...
Pirates have been doing a pretty phenomenal job of resurrecting guys like Volquez lately, though.
Marlins trade Justin Ruggiano to Cubs for Brian Bogusevic
Giants sign Mike Morse to a 1 yr deal
O's grabbed Almanzar in the Rule 5 draft. Would be pretty surprised to see him stick in the majors all year, though.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA. — Major League Baseball's rules committee voted Wednesday to eliminate collisions at the plate.
The rule has yet to be written and would have to be approved by owners and...
Bartolo Colon to the Mets, 2/20
Edinson Volquez to the Pirates, 1/5
One potential wrench in the Morales pick works:
GM:"Just cannot see Kendry Morales signing until after the draft"
That is correct. You've moved up one spot so far and could conceivably go up as many as 6 more depending on where the rest of the QO guys end up. Every one that doesn't sign with a team picking in...
LOL. An interesting way of putting it.
I see the M's just traded for Logan Morrison, as well.
With Morse on the other corner.
Hart and LoMo should at least be able to hold serve, I would think.
I would've assumed Hart will go back to RF for you guys, no?
D.J. Williams was re-signed, BTW.
Also A's traded Jerry Blevins to the Nats for a ml OF'er
