Any Clarity on Last Night's Sanchez/Stanton Situation

Recommended Posts

Has MLB come out to say if Buck was correct and the umps were wrong? Would they ever do that? Did they come out and try to give an explanation as to why they thought the umps were right?

Meals concurred with Showalter. "Sanchez should have been out automatically for passing Stanton," he said. "Then, Stanton had the right to come back and touch third before being tagged or be called out for abandoning his effort."

Multiple places have said yes, Buck was correct.  Ill post a link

 

I like that Buck knew.  I think it is hilarious that Boone thought there was a rule against a pitcher blocking the plate.

See this bothers me so much because Buck came out, told them the rule, I assume. They then had a conference about it and still ruled wrong. They had the opportunity to get it right on the field and did not. That's what ticks me off. If Buck would have said something after the game and they would have come out and agreed that's one thing, but you knew at that moment and did nothing.

I've seen Hank Bauer march onto the field with the rule book and have the call corrected, and I've seen Earl Weaver tear up the rule book and throw it on the field. Umpires do what they think is right, but they are not always right.

Do they? Do you think sometimes it's a pride thing? We called it this way and don't want to look foolish reversing it? Can't have it look like someone else knows the rules better than us during a game?

I can't read anyone's mind. Can you?

Yes I chuckled reading that on ESPN. 

 

I liked that Buck knew also.  But Bahama, I don't want to make too much of it...it's a technicality and yes they got it wrong.  They also admitted it and that is human and part of the game.  It's  not Jeffrey Maier, where six guys couldn't correct something obvious.  They did not know at that moment.  That would mean they intentionally got it wrong.

The only real question is this...Buck came out presented the rule and they disagreed...now, that could have been they disagreed with Buck's understanding of the rule or it could have been they did not agree with the play and how the rule should be applied.  But they got it wrong on the field and still the O's won.

Hey who wants to fire Buck?  Anyone think the team is lost still?

Buck is a nugget.

No, that's why there is no certainty. It's why I asked "Do you THINK", not "Do you know"

I think people are people and do all sorts of things for all sorts of reasons.

Sure, there are trolls that always do. Or fans of other teams.

Did Buck protest?  I watched a cut up that had each broadcast breaking down the play, and that was asked by one of the Yankees broadcasters.

I think I heard it mentioned and became moot once the side was out without a score.

    • DJ LeMahieu is a free agent at the end of the year
    • I really like what I see from Means.  I think of him as emerging as a 2 - a top 25-50 SP with some consistency.   He has been wicked good the past month.  I like that he and his wife are both driven to be so good at their craft and are so competitive.  One can count on Means maximizing his stuff through hard work, desire and dedication.  
    • IMO, the current major league rotation is a C+ depending on Means ceiling and the future outlook of Akin and Kremer. I believe the minor league situation is an A.  I am not sure how many organizations have 2 SP candidates in the top 100, but by law of averages I doubt it is much more than 10.  There are a LOT of names with reasonable chances of becoming 3-5 SPs in the organization.  Baumann may be the next biggest name and we heard nice things about Bradish and we still have Lowther, Wells and Smith leading the wave after Akin/Kremer.  And a bunch of names below that. I would have to strongly disagree about any renaissance with pitching philosophies.  Our current FO has spent very little of the past few drafts on pitching.  Almost all of the names in the opening post were provided by the prior regime.  I think this is mostly by design as Elias will draft hitters.  Going forward, I expect our pitching inventory to be stocked by international signs, trades for minor leaguers in other organizations (such as the Bradish and Smith deals) and lastly - like Houston - trade for TOR, cost controlled SPs mostly using the hitting inventory.  I expect high $ investments in pitchers in the draft and internationally will be a lesser occurrence.
    • Agreed with all points.  And reasonable expectations, too.
    • Definitely, all prospects are flawed and no pitching prospect can be counted on. I would be very pleased to get a 3, a 4, a 5, and a late inning reliever (Castro or Givens quality) out of the Akin, Kremer, Baumann, Zimmermann, Wells, Bradish, and Smith crowd. A lot of quantity and reasonable quality.  If we can get a #2 out of Hall and Rodriguez, I would be pleased. Tough to ever expect even 50 percent of pitching prospects to pan out. Obviously I hope they both become top of the rotation starters, but you can't rely on it. I would have been pleased to get a reasonable 6th inning reliever out of David Hess. Of course, occasionally a John Means comes along and blows your expectations out of the water, but that is much more rare than the other way around.
    • He seems to have command/control issues, that's for sure.  
    • I suppose the grade is a measurement of the actual talent, the philosophy in scouting/developing for the position, and the depth.  That's why I believe they deserve the A.
