  • How did you hear about Umpire-Empire?
    ABUA (umpire.org)
  1. while dodging to miss a pitch that hit him? Yep, he offered alright! And before anyone says it ... I'm not a Cubs 'fan' .......
  2. 1 million percent Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  3. of course. also, the MLB guys are FAR, FAR superior than we are, thus, .... they can delineate pitches in far more detail
  4. YES!! I'm not so sure Kinsler is complaining about the at-bat that he was ejected but moreso the one prior. Can't find it ... Also .... whether that ball crossed through the strike zone or not .... that's a ball 99.9999999999% of the time ..... even in high-school!
  5. I tried to get the Brooks Baseball zone for this game but it wouldn't come up for me ....
  6. I was listening when this happened. The radio guys (one that I particularly like) never says anything about umpires, and he was hot about Angel last night and I thought, hmmm, this will be interesting to see tomorrow. He was saying he was calling pitches low and 8" outside. That made me say, wait a minute ...something is wrong here.... It was wrong ....the commentary was wrong...... while borderline (Kinsler strike here) ...it's a strike (would love to see the side view) .... I guess it just goes to show you that all announcers are homers ....
  7. obviously not ......... look at the MLB!
  8. WOW!!! Just goes to show you how deceiving that center field camera can be!! Thanks Steve! p.s. any luck w/ Dan?
  9. not convinced at all ...like I said ....another angle needed
  10. Ouch!! I need another angle here but holy cow, that sure doesn't' even look close from the CF camera
  11. @blue32 .... OK ...so I think I have a mask coming and I may want to have it dipped like yours! So, who else is in, so we can all get a discount ?!?! LMAO!!
  12. NOW THAT is a sharp looking mask!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!
  13. agree. a lot of that had to do with the catchers movements. And .... NEVER trust "Fox Trax" or "Pitchcast" from the broadcast....
