That's a good call. Clearly attempted to strike the ball. 1B dugout replay showed it best. 

while dodging to miss a pitch that hit him?  Yep, he offered alright! :rolleyes: 

And before anyone says it ... I'm not a Cubs 'fan' .......

That angle was the only one that looked like he came close, but I thought it moved forward only because he was trying to dodge the ball. I am a Cubs fan, but I'm pretty impartial about it. I thought the Zobrist K last week was a strike.

You strike me as someone who probably thinks these are swings too.

If a guy attempts to bunt the ball or swings at the ball, the correct thing to do is call it. You see an attempt, you see an attempt. I'd rather make the right call than the easy call.

Guess MLB umpires didn't take game management 101.
