  1. And his first game last year on June 25 in Atlanta he only got it because his crew was in qwinett when Mike Everitt got in a wreck on the way to the game and involved in a police shoutout.
  2. He was pretty quick in his timing on calls sometimes which led to some misses and his strike zone struggled sometimes, which he has improved on this season. Also Carlos Torres being rushed into full time duty due to age.
  3. No, the reason he only worked 21 games last year in MLB was because he was demoted from rover to triple a crew chief he worked the rest of his games in AAA with Matt McCoy who retired mid season replaced by Paul Clemons and Alex Tosi.
  4. Every play is graded during the season. There are multiple categories situational handling, balls/strikes, base work, crew chiefs have how they broke up arguments, odd plays, replay rules and so on
  5. The rule states "the batter-runner, as well as the interfering runner, shall be declared out and no other runner(s) shall advance"
  6. Yes, that was Gerry Davis behind the plate. I don't know the answer to your second question
  7. Tripp Gibson was hired with just 173 career games. Carlos Torres had 160 career games at time of appointment, and Quinn Wolcott had just 149 games at time of hire. Stu had 100 games coming into this season and has been in the big leagues the enitre time.
  8. I have gotten to watch a lot of games he has called this year and he is a really good umpire. I would have him on the top of my list of next hires along with Fagan
  9. His crew was in replay that week and he works when his crew goes to replay to get more games show they put him as the crew chief on Scott's crew
  10. Crews are pretty stable, but with the crew chief out they want a strong 2 on the crew, and they don't want 2 fill ins on the same crew, which leads to crew shuffling
