    I hate these rant on / rant off emojis.

    FED DH Rule Change

    My (non-official) guess is that this is exactly what was wanted. The CR is for a P or a C (i.e, a DEFENSIVE player). The person batting is the DH (i.e., an OFFENSIVE player). The fact that it's physically the same person doesn't alter the roles.
  3. 1) TV ratings 2) What's more likely to sell at the concession stand 3) Sunglasses endorsement fees 4) Whether mom needs to pack the sunscreen or the firefly catching jars 5) Post-game snack differences
  4. I'd post something sarcastic about the runner being our for running the bases in reverse, but someone would take it seriously. ;)
  5. If you didn't know it was there, why did you call it?
  6. Thanks for the report. We usually only hear of things when the umpire gets it wrong.

    Double Play

    I think that instead of the location, you need to look at the timing. If R1 sees where F6 is going as F6 starts his throwing motion THEN R1 moves to get in the way, maybe you can get the INT. Or, R1 veers to his right, F6 stops on the base, R1 veers back into the baseline, maybe you can get the INT. Absent that (and it almost always will be; and the OP contains no mention of it), then it's play on.

    imo, 99.9% of the time, if you don't visit in 7-10 days, you don't really have something to add to the discussion.

    Double Play

    Counter: The ball was so hard hit that F6 has plenty of time to make a throw to first without drifting toward right field and he doesn't need to drift because R1 is so far from the base.. And, R1 is in his sights. So, the only reason F6 drifted was to intentionally hit R1 with the ball. Eject F6. Fee free to judge otherwise ...

    Double Play

    I always used "if the runner is close enough that he should be sliding, then the rule applies" without any difficulty explaining it to a coach.
  11. Is there a question? (I don't mean that to be as snarky as it might sound. I'm just trying to be sure "we" address whatever it is that you are asking.)

    I'd add: No gifs or pics (they rarely add anything) No more than one post every x hours by any one person
  13. Finally. I've been waiting nearly 7.5 years for someone to add that. I'd just about given up.

    FED DH Rule Change

    I'm confused by this one. At the end of (c) you have (starter) Sanders catching and Jackson pitching -- yet, these players occupy the same spot in the order. This seems to conflict with 3.1.4J (above)

    Have Montalbo pinch-run and then use a Courtesy Runner for Montalbo
