    Dropped 3rd strike

    LL is entering a dead ball area.

    Batter runs to first on dropped second strike

    Like not telling the batter what pitch is coming? Or not telling a runner if you are going to try a pickoff? Or not telling the defense you are going to try a suicide squeeze? Or having a starter only pitch to one batter so the other team gets stuck with the wrong lineup? Trying to gain an advantage is the whole point in a game.

    I'm don't know what your site guardian thinks is the unusual activity from my IPO address but my browser says your site is not secure.

    Pine tar

    Twas the correct call. Umps got tossed under the bus by the league.
  7. Charlie Finley tried an air dust off system with the A's. He also had a pop-up rabbit that delivered baseballs to he umpire.

    Throwing the bat

    Nope - mine were he is no longer *able* to play. Anyone counting that as an ejection deserves derision.

    Throwing the bat

    So if a kid stars throwing up all over the place (nosebleed, the runs, whatever) and Mom takes him home that counts as an ejection?

    45 ft. running lane violations

    The regulars may get it but the lurkers may not. I've encountered too many coaches who think it's a good move.

    45 ft. running lane violations

    Don't teach that. Don't. Not only is it bush, it invites retaliation. Getting a throwing lane is easy.

    Batter runs to first on dropped second strike

    Interspaced. The defense needs to know the situation.

    45 ft. running lane violations

    The overly simple answer is that there had to be interference. Woulda coulda doesn't count. Ball thrown and caught - no interference was there? Any shaving age players should know how to set up and get the throw to 1B.

    Cheatin SOB

    Touchy are we? Where did I say pitchers don't cheat? They've been doing it forever. Maybe he is this time. But it's rather incongruous to think it's the way the video fan thinks it's being done.
