  2. o If the replay rulings are decided by a group of Oriole fans instead of by a committee in New York City, I think that we have a chance at seeing a 90-plus win team. o

  6. o I didn't insinuate that it did, as I pointed out the fact that the previous batter could have been easily called out on strikes which would have ended the inning in the first place. The article suggests/asserts that a crucial bad call could make a significant impact on a game, which we all know happens frequently throughout the course of each and every season ........ in fact, that is the crux of your OP (and your corresponding thread title.) o
  7. o Previous to the call in question (the 3-2 punch-out of Victor Robles), Ryan Zimmerman had a 3-2 pitch that was probably a strike that was called a ball, and he drew a walk (instead of ending the inning) ........ so one could argue that the inning should have been over in the first place before the very bad call to Robles. Either way, the whole electronic umpire debate is (if nothing else) interesting.

  8. o Agreed. Unless there is a masochistic GM out there somewhere, the thread title of "Chris Davis Salary Dump Matches" is an oxymoron. o

    Auburn Revived

    o I agree, it's highly unlikely that Auburn would have won the game without that extremely questionable rule. They probably would have gotten the ball back deep in their own territory with only 25 seconds left to play and no timeouts. It's still very annoying to see it (that rule) play out that way, as it did in the 2003 season Fiesta Bowl between Kansas State and Ohio State. o
  10. o Better to be terrible at replay challenges in a season in which the team finished about 135 games out of first place than in a season in which they missed a playoff berth by a handful of games. o
  11. o Joe Smith threw 16 pitches in the 8th inning ........ 15 of which were strikes. He faced 4 batters, got 3 outs, and successfully protected his team's 4-run lead. o

    Auburn Revived

    o (vs. LSU, 10/27/2019) Auburn was the victim of an awful rule in college football late in the 4th quarter of this game. LSU had the ball and a 3-point lead with 2:32 left to play, and Auburn had no timeouts left. So if LSU ran 3 plays without getting a 1st down (and without stopping the clock by running out of bounds or throwing an incomplete pass), Auburn would have been due to get the ball back with at least 20 or 25 seconds left to play. On 1st down, LSU was called for holding ........ but the clock continued to run after the referees marked off the 10-yard penalty, essentially giving LSU an extra down in terms of running time off of the clock. So they were actually rewarded for that holding penalty, which allowed them to run all of the time off of the clock instead of having to punt the ball back to Auburn on 4th down. In the NFL, in the same situation, the clock stops AND STAYS STOPPED ........ hence, a team which has possession of the ball and a small lead late in the 4th quarter (as did LSU yesterday afternoon) does not get rewarded for committing penalties. o

  15. o Good thread bump, not necessarily a good idea (specifically for next season.) Being that it will be highly unlikely that the Orioles will be contending for a playoff berth in 2020, there is not much reason to not continue the babying of Harvey, and make his ongoing health/avoidance of injury a top priority ........ and even in the unlikely event that the Orioles find themselves a few games over .500 in June or July of 2020, I would still not mess with the continued extreme carefulness in their monitoring and usage of Harvey ........ avoiding any kind of serious injury next season (as the Orioles did this season) for their potential star pitcher is probably almost as important as winning or losing 10 or 15 games one way or the other (again, assuming that the Orioles are nowhere near a playoff berth in the W-L column.) If and when Harvey completes another season without a serious injury (as he did in 2019), then perhaps the notion of converting him back to a starter will be back in play in 2021. ) * * ) All of the information in the above post is my rat's ass of an opinion. o
