  1. Bringing this thread back to the forefront. Mr. @JHSumpwas WAY ahead of his time.
  2. I'll have to look at it again. The very first time I saw the play, from the angle I was provided, it appeared as though he was compliant....or judged by me to be on the line. But yes, that is moot because that was a throw that was not capable of retiring the batter/runner.
  3. It's understood both by definition and common practice that the word "shall" is a requirement. (in all walks of life)
  4. Yeah, that's why I think that's not what it means. We'll see I guess.
  5. Shout out to Papa C! RIP Carl
  6. Unless my state tells me I need to manage this, I'm staying away from it. I've got bigger fish to fry out there.
  7. Makes sense...every clip I see has the same plate umpire. I guess my point is that there was (as least at one time) an ad for umpires and they wanted D1 experience.
  8. I should clarify, I have the old one...I've heard nothing of the new one. I'd buy it instantly if he ever wanted to bring it to market.
  9. I have a hard copy. It's thick. I got it from a friend.
  10. It may have changed, but they seem to want umpires who have working Division 1. That being said, it seems as though every clip I watch, it's the same plate umpire.
  11. I don't know if there's a different feed somewhere, but I ended up watching the entire game and didn't see the clips that he has in his video. I'll keep looking, but we might have to read between the lines a bit...at least with my clip.
  12. I didn't watch subsequent innings. They may have rolled the tape back. A great look would be something overhead.
  13. I'm usually pretty hard on the announcers...but in their defense, I don't think that there's any way that they see F5 with the ball in real time. From their perspective, the logical take is that it was a left early appeal. I think if they had the MLB staff to roll it back and take a look at what occurred, I bet they grab it then...but whomever found this initially, was really dialed in because there was literally no mention of it on the broadcast.
  14. Here we go. And the R2 didn't leave early either. They rarely do.
  15. On it. Stand by. Good find.
