  1. Just like the ss vs 3b on the other side it’s all about pursuit angles. Tough for the 1b to go straight(ish) back. And everyone on the diamond should go after it if able, assuming no bases need to be covered.
  2. That’s not how it works. An IF is supposed to keep pursuing until the OF calls him off. Who knows if that happened but the IF does not just stop to let the OF make the play.
  3. I got a j&j I got a j&j Saturday and still have some arm soreness today. Saturday I felt sort of meh but other than that no symptoms.
  4. Yeah I get it, and my motivation is obviously self serving but you’d think at some point all of these leagues would need to catch up and get that people are pulling this anyhow so why not just open it up?
  5. Once NFL out of market games go to streaming services we will be cutting the cord. I know the direct tv Sunday ticket deal is done in 23 and ESPN+ is rumored to take over. Watching the Ravens out of market is the only thing keeping us tied down. For all of it’s failures, MLB.tv is just about the best in the industry(save that you can’t use it in market)?
  6. Don’t mean to derail this thread, but when I was in college I was an umpire for beer and gas money and worked mostly high school JV baseball games, youth travel baseball also. The assignor called me at about 3:00 on a random Tuesday and asked if I could work a high school JV softball game because the assigned umpire couldn’t make it. I told him “I don’t know the rules”, he gave me a 35 second crash course and I worked the game. OH. MY. GOSH. Now granted both teams were flat out bad but I kid you not the score ended up being about 32-27. The number of walks in that game was off the charts. I could have made the strike zone the brim to the ankles and there would have still been an insane amount of walks(which I definitely did by about the 3 inning).. Every other pitch was in the dirt or 4 feet over the batter’s head. The game started at 3:45. Fast pitch is supposed to move quickly right? I had a 6:00 travel baseball game that night I did not make because of this game. This was pre cell phone too so after the softball game I had to race to find a pay phone at a High’s store to call the assignor at 6:10 to tell him I obviously was not making that travel game. It was a nightmare.
  7. We picked up our 12 year old a Roku tv on sale for his room, it’s not 65” but it’s probably as large as the ‘main’ tv we had growing up. He only watches YouTube and games anyhow so it’s perfect right? 99% of the time I stick my nose in his room he’s laying in bed watching YouTube on his phone. Me: You know you can literally watch the same thing on that tv there right? Him: Yup Me: So why aren’t you? Him:🤷‍♂️
  8. This addition the thread is not remotely germane to the topic but I’ll add it any how. Going back about 15 or 20 years ago, maybe not that long, my parents were friends with Dick Hall’s daughter, as they lived in the same area of Harford County and had kids who went to school together(Dick Hall’s daughter and my parents, my sister went to school with Dick’s granddaughter). Someone had tickets to a Maryland basketball game and we all drove down to College Park. I had the privilege to sit in the back seat with Dick and while I don’t have experiences with many current or former professional athletes, I can tell you that Dick Hall has to be one of the nicest ones ever, as he was one of nicest guys I’ve ever met in my life. He was extremely down to earth and while I can’t tell you much about the content of the conversation(probably because my dad dominated it with Orioles talk, which was fine with me), he was happy to engage. Was an awesome experience. Feel free to remove if not appropriate.
  9. Can’t believe Atomic isn’t even going to be able to hyper extend his joints patting himself on the back.
  10. Why are the legs tiny? Or the head giant? Agree with pac man as a comp.
  11. Believe what you'd like, its foolish to engage with someone who only hears what they want to hear anyhow. Just because I don't post doesn't mean I don't read what others post and link to. Carry on.
  12. I'm not "fake", just been lurking for years. You are a strain on the community and I'm not even sure why you are still permitted to post. It is one thing to have a different opinion but entirely different to be so pompous about it(not to mention how misguided you are regarding just about most things). As far as I can tell many here have you on ignore. Not sure why I don't. Flame away, because we all know you can't leave it alone.
