  1. Odd appeal play

    I agree. I was envisioning an obvious left early as in a bonehead or forgot the outs move where the runner is returning to 3B. The throw would then go to 3B.
  2. Odd appeal play

    Who screwed up does not matter. What the umpire judges as an unmistakeable appeal does.
  3. Odd appeal play

    HTBT, College, a throw going home means a not obvious leaving earlier except possibly to F5 and onlookers not involved on the field. So F5 gloving a throw standing on the base and looking at the umpire would indicate an appeal to me. F2 might not have been appealing but F5 still could glove the throw and make an unmistakeable appeal. Not sure he did.
  4. How in the world can you change that call?

    You quoted something he did not say. What he said was "I was dead wrong". Unless he said what you quoted in another statement in addition to the "dead wrong" statement. The other difference is what you admit to. He did not have a foul tip. P
  5. How in the world can you change that call?

    I don't think he said "I blew the call." I would infer from what he did say that he did not origionnally have a foul tip: “After talking with the crew (I was told) the ball did not necessarily bounce, but it hit the ground the same time as (it hit) the mitt,” Wolf told a pool reporter. “After hearing that, then I heard two distinct separate sounds. And after hearing from the crew that the ball did not bounce — it did hit the ground but it did not bounce — I basically talked myself into ‘He did foul tip it.’ ... And after looking at it, I was dead wrong. I talked myself into the whole thing.”
  6. How in the world can you change that call?

    I didn't see a foul tip signal from Wolf. If one of his crew thought Wolf had a foul tip, without seeing it signaled, then it was incumbent on them to give a crew determined signal that the ball was on the ground or he needed to consult with them. It's possible with the noise and everything and his responding to Granderson and Roberts that Wolf did not see an initial signal and after talking with Roberts he turned and saw the magic sign from his crew. But the foul tip story doesn't make sense with what Wolf signaled on the field. Who is saying that Wolf had a foul tip origionally.

    Jim, we are going with your call.
  8. How in the world can you change that call?

    So if it wasn't appeasement what was it? Getting it right? OK WTF did guys 90' away convince him of?
  9. How in the world can you change that call?

    I think that would only apply to a batted ball off the batter or a tip that hit the dirt. This belongs to the PU and he got it. He appeased Roberts because Roberts has a great demeanor and one of his crew effed up from 90 plus feet away.
  10. Cross up or deke

    T7, Cubs LA, 2 outs, 3-2 count. Contreras sets up way inside, gloves an outside strike with a reach. That's a ball. No problem, according to announcers. But if you recognize a deke catcher setup why not call the pitch. Obviously this ump as well as many of us sometimes do not realize it was a deke.
  11. Play at the plate

    That's because the movement of blocking the plate was not necessary to receiving the throw.
  12. Who killed the ball in the ivy

    ULF ? LA CUBS B 9 Tuesday
  13. Last time by and other fun stuff

    A segue generated by a comment on close call sports: Still, that’s an interesting twist. @ Gil. A normal situation and common practice would would allow the ump to put it in play as long as an 89 foot lead did not exist. But if Judge was safe at 2B and the ball was put in play before he retouched 1B after the dead ball thus having an unfair and illegal lead, while the defense was waiting to appeal or throw him out on his steal of 2B and waiting for the live ball point what would we have:
  14. Hit em with the old 7.13(2)

    I see no redirection. I see a legal block in both NCAA 2017 videos and the illegal OBR:/MLB OP which would be legal in NCAA. The redirect video is not the current interp as far as I can tell.
