    Yes - you totally should mod it! Of course, it's not my money being spent so I'm all for it!

    Not trying to nitpick, but I think this makes it more clear. Also, I might (HTBT) point and say, "that's obstruction," when it occurs. I certainly wouldn't yell it (in an attempt to sell a call...as no selling is necessary), but it might be a good thing to do as you will be letting the offensive coach/team know you saw it. Then, when the play was over, I would have that "simpl(e) and discrete," conversation with the catcher. By and large, I agree with your post.

    What you have here is a preventative umpiring moment. My take on what you wrote is that by the letter of the rule you would have obstruction by the catcher on the runner heading home. However since there was no play made on that runner and he still scored you have nothing to call. The obligation is on F2 to not be in the base path until he is in the immediate act of fielding a throw which in your case never happened. Nothing you wrote leads me to believe there is any case for an interference call. I'd simply and discretely tell the catcher he has to give the runner basepath in that situation.
