  1. And, PU has a better look at whether the overthrow (at / past first) goes OOP and then still has time to go home if a play should develop there. PU's movement on the initial play is (a) similar to his movement with no one on, except closer to the mound or (b) similar to his movement in 1-person (eek!) mechanics -- out toward F4 (in a normal position), set for any play at second, then a step or two toward the line for the pulled foot / swipe tag at first.
  2. Except: If you have a "seasonla business" you are allowed to take the spring months and extend (the exact definition is on the form) Except: My business accountant now says that this forgiven loan is likely NOT to be taxable income to the business (how it affects ICs I didn't ask)
  3. Agreed that it's BU. The drop-step that BU needs to make is not much different from how BU covers a steal of second.
  4. It's a loan. It's forgivable (generally ) if you do not reduce your employment during the term of the loan. It will become income if it's forgiven, (I assume; that's true for most loans). Think of it as giving unemployment benefits directly to the workers as opposed to having them be fired and filing for it.
  5. Because you are out of position for a swipe tag and pulled foot calla t first -- and those two happen more often than the next play at third.
  6. My 2015 CCA has PU rotating to third "if R1 is safe and attempts to advance to third" and "PU is responsible for any play at third and home." I never liked that, so I'm glad it has apparently changed. I agree it's not needed in 3-man -- that's (part of ) what U2 is there for.

    Yes, it's better protection. IT makes no difference on the calls -- that has everything to do with the umpire's position and the umpire could work the slot or over the top with either the outside or the inside protector. Working the "super slot" would be difficult with the outside protector.)
  8. And, as someone who has gone through it for a business, it's not really an easy application and you need an sba-approved banker. Some banks have said they won't deal with those who aren't already customers. But, yes, apply.
  9. Some version of 'Don't do that"

    1) We're talking about FED not OBR. And "intending to take the set position" is not "taking the set position. Usually when the sequence I am discussing happens, the free foot is not completely in front of the rubber when F1 contacts it, so this is the windup position (assuming eh pivot foot is correct). And, if the batter was in position, this would not necessarily be a quick pitch. Anyway, I *think* SA's point is not to take "getting comfortable" literally. I agree. It's a guideline. And, it works for me. Like all guidelines, if it doesn't work for you, don't use it.

    As I read it, it's just a pitch ( a "weird" pitch, but still a pitch). Similar to play 2 (except the ball was delivered in one instance to first and in the other toward home). I suspect that the way you meant the play and the way I read it might be just different enough to get different results.
  13. No, since the appeal (for the third out) is a force out or by BR before reaching first (depending on which play we are discussing).
  14. The runner need not go to first at all under OBR. I think, under FED, he does (but I say that without looking it up, so take it for what it is) -- so yes, he is out on upon a proper appeal and the game continues.
