  8. A crew that knows and communicates situations such as infield fly and time plays crisply stays a step ahead of the game and its fans. A momentary lapse in concentration or communication, however, can render confusion on the base paths. In order to make sure all umpires are on the same page, "each...

  9. Quinn Wolcott's ejection of two Tigers has led to speculation that Detroit threw at the umpire in retaliation. Did they? Or was Wednesday's occurrence a sequence of unfortunate coincidence?

  13. At best, the catcher appears not to have any compassion; his actions both in the immediate aftermath and upon seeing the injurious result of the pitch are consistent with a person amenable to the outcome of another person on the ground in pain. A slight more sinister interpretation places the catcher's reaction in the realm of schadenfreude. The pitcher's post-game Twitter comments and replies to several people suggests a similar lack of genuine concern. His responses are inconsistent with a concern for Wolcott's status and suggest a defense to a charge that wasn't even levied. Ausmus' postgame comments similarly convey a lack of levelheadedness, likely due to the team's struggles. Just another case of classic umpire scapegoating; the strike zone was not discrepant as he so alleges. Detroit was actually +1 on ball/strike calls this game. At worst, this was a calculated act where the catcher is most responsible for the outcome.
