  2. More on topic .... I do locate pitches under certain circumstances. Typically the closer the pitch, or the CLOSER IT MAY LOOK from the dugouts, the more I'll locate. Obvious sky-high pitches or pitches in the dirt, ....you know what I mean .... that does not get located... (no need) My favorite is the 0-2 pitch when the catcher sets up WAY outside to get the kid to go fishing, and the pitcher NAILS the glove, but it's about a foot outside ... whack! "THAT'S OUTSIDE!!!!" crowd: "ooohhhhhhhhhhhh!" Then the catcher looks up and says ... "I love it when they think that pitch is a strike" ...
  3. I'm not, and I didn't. But, I think we understand now where each of us are coming from. (hard stop please)
  4. That's a very different viewpoint ... a comment like this would have helped: "interesting, I wasn't aware of this before and have never really heard it until this postseason" .... THAT is a very different view than what you were portraying above. It's all good, and I'm not your boss
  5. that's all well and good .... but it's been pointed out many times that this is nothing new. Just because you 'just recently heard it' or noticed it doesn't mean it's new. Others have pointed this out as well on this thread. Also, each year the technology gets a bit better and better, microphones pick up more and more ...so maybe it's more pronounced this year? Maybe, ...but again, doesn't make the 'mechanic' of locating pitches 'new' ....
  6. YES! ....from my post yesterday.......... YEARS also .... look here too!
  7. THIS IS NOTHING NEW GUYS .................... NO NEW GUIDANCE..........
  8. ....it's been going on for years now. playoffs or not ... some guys locate, some guys don't (I think more do, especially at that level) ... we're just getting the bonus of being able to hear it on the broadcast
  9. Moved here to the "Free for All" section .......
  10. Discussed many times on here ..... here are a couple.... And here, in this one, I have a post within that shows 3 more links to read ....
  11. my ENTIRE concern is the horrific mis-application of the rule .... and that it could have been done by someone who has enough experience to 'know better'
  12. Cheers to the "third team" ........ and the best team on the field! Wishing them a great WS!
  13. the sad thing is .... who said the 'umpire' in this game from the OP was new???
  14. I have merged @Jimurray thread, and @Richvee thread together because they're speaking about the exact same issue, and I wanted to keep all of the discussion in one place (as it's good stuff). I hope you don't mind Rich?
  15. I think I understand the explanation, but .... "ok"
  16. SORRY EVERYONE ........... this was from YouTube ...from Ump-Attire, but I asked the question and got the strange answer from the YouTube video from this post....
  17. I asked my question directed at UA. This was actually a response from someone at the UA facebook page .....
  18. Thanks Jim! Same to you! Thanks for sharing ... I asked the same question on Facebook and got sort of a 'smart-assy' answer, but it's all good.
