  1. With the ball in the infield do you seriously think R1 would be so far past 2B that he wouldn't just step back to it?
  2. But to invoke that you have to first rule it wasn't a bona fide slide. Which part of thei was not met? A “bona fide slide” for purposes of Rule 6.01 occurs when the runner: (1) begins his slide (i.e., makes contact with the ground) before reaching the base; (2) is able and attempts to reach the base with his hand or foot; (3) is able and attempts to remain on the base (except home plate) after completion of the slide; and (4) slides within reach of the base without changing his pathway for the purpose of initiating contact with a fielder.
  3. That's what they use now for electronic strike zones.. And they say it's less accurate.
  4. How can they know that? What tools are they using to determine that? How accurate are the tools? If the tools are accurate enough for them to allow the conclusion then that tool should be OK to use.
  5. Nice try. They have you on video already.
  6. In/Out is easy - the plate doesn't change size. One proposal I saw indicated each player would be measured and the Up/Down then be set to the player at bat.
  7. And how did he determine that? What did he use for making the comparisons?
  8. Nobody cared. But - forward and backward are relative to the body, not the field.
  9. The base has to be tagged by a fielder holding the ball in hand or glove.
  10. But MLB would pick a system, not three, and even if they had three a game site would only use one of them. And slightly different isn't the issue, it's the lack of consistency and the gross misses that are.
  11. Not true. If there was true a merit-based system the poor performers would be demoted or released, just as with the players, coaches, and managers.
  12. Nobody, as in nobody, would go for this. 1) Slows down the runner going for two; 2) The dirt isn't the same in every park.
  13. It isn't there because it isn't a rule.
  14. The pitcher disengaged. Not a pitch. No CI.
