I was watching this game. I was surprised by the Gennett EJ as he didn't seem to direct anything at PU. 

 

Anyone have any  thoughts on PU positioning on play at the plate that was overturned?

I think the equipment fine was good for the spike of the helmet and the ej was unnecessary for flipping the elbow guard as I didn't see that directed at the umpire.

 

As far as the play at the plate, I think he wants to be more to the left. I think he over rotated and got stuck when F2 dropped down and slid to his left to apply the tag.

PU told him to pick up the helmet and/or KTSO. Then he threw the guard. EJ is pretty automatic there.

I don't know whether these count as Abe thoughts, but he's in the proper position, head still. He just missed an extremely tight call. Remember that the human eye can distinguish events only to about .04 seconds, and I'd bet that the gap between touch and tag was right around there.

It looks easy or obvious only in super slo mo, where .04 seconds gets stretched to a few seconds. Even Mets fans can get it right at that point.

LOL! Damn auto correct. 

From my reading here, I'd have thought that he would want to rotate to his left to see the tag applied better

Gotcha.  Live I just didn't get the impression of it being directed at PU so that's why I was a bit surprised.
