  1. Looks like the latest change has fixed this problem. Text is all nicely left-justified. Thanks!
  2. I don't see the whole page left justified, though my reply is. I've attached a screenshot. Looking at the page's HTML, there is a "<center>" block around all of the user content on the page. My reply has explicit "text-align:left" tags on the paragraphs, which is why it shows up well. But it is not a general fix, as the "Posted 17 hours ago" header is still centered. It was left-justified in older posts.
  3. For what it is worth, I am seeing centered posts in Google. Also, for what it is worth, the reply edit box started with centered text. I set it to left justified, but I'm not sure what I'll see.
  4. Frankly, there's no way to know without a security audit. HTTPS means that you are at least a little protected from third parties getting the information directly, but we don't know anything about their internal security and how well they protect your information from their own employees and possible hackers.
  5. Perhaps. Though if all anyone got was a participation ribbon, perhaps nobody would care so much about winning at all costs.

    Coach / Umpire

    It only takes a MLB crew 3 innings to realize (and correct) this mistake. http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=indiansprotest
  7. You might be interested in the Brooks Baseball tool: http://www.brooksbaseball.net/pfxVB/zoneTrack.php
  8. I think that would be appropriate.

    Fair or Foul?

    Thanks for clarifying this little controversy, noumpere. I, too, would be interested in a ruling on this issue. As a practical matter, though, it just may not have come up.

    Fair or Foul?

    Your description does not give us enough information. In this case, it depends on whether the ball was above fair territory when it bounded past (the front edge of) first base. Is so, then it is judged a fair ball. If the ball was entirely in foul territory when bounding past first base, it was a foul ball.
  11. I think that Scioscia also told the home plate umpire that they were going to appeal at second. Perhaps that's why O'Nora seems to make a discernable in-play mechanic. I was at that game, and it was hard to see him putting in play most of the time.
  12. As near as I can tell, this is exactly what happened. The umpire called Time at 0:20 (but not before) while Seager was in the box with his hand up to stop Weaver from pitching. Later, he was holding up his hand in a Stop mechanic to indicate that he hadn't put the ball back in play yet. After some wiggling and some jawing, Seager was ready for the pitch, the ball was put into play (presumably around 0:43), and Weaver weaved.

    Bizarre situation

    According to the definition, equipment is always a part of the person in OBR. But I'm not sure if a dropped bat would be considered the player's equipment anymore.
  14. The risk in not going to replay is too high. If they ever screw up a count, it's on Sports Center that night. If they spend 3:30 making sure they have it right, there is hardly any mention of the delay. In my games, once I've gone to the BU or the scorekeeper, I make the announcement, and everybody lives with it. I don't have it reviewed for me on national TV over my post game adult beverage.
