It's cool.  Figured you were listening to Haydn's String Quartet in E Flat or something.

Ummmm Haydn wrote 70 quartets. Which one in E flat were you referring to?

Arguing balls and strikes is part of the game.  I understand the logic for wanting an automated strike zone, I really do.  But watching a guy like Maddux expand the zone is high art that can't possibly be replicated by an automated strike zone.  It just can't.  Leave me alone.

People can complain all they want about how unfair it is to have a rule requiring runners to get in the 3-foot lane before they reach first base, but unfair or not, it is the rule.

The Orioles really ought to get used to complying with the rule.

The coaches ought to be telling them, every day, "If you bunt and you're running to first, get in the three-foot lane and get ready to touch the base with your left foot as you go by.  Do NOT give the umps a chance to call you out for interference."

If Martin could have done that, the Orioles would have had two runs home and Villar on third base with nobody out.

No one runs in the base line. No one complies with the rule. Watch all the runners going down to first and you'll see that almost all of them run inside the baseline because it's more comfortable to plant the right foot into the bag than the left for righties. Doing it with the left foot is awkward. It's a stupid rule and no one follows it not to mention that forcing compliance may lead to some nasty left leg injuries down past the bag. If this rule were strictly enforced, everyone running down the line would get called for it.

84% of the outs that Ynoa recorded (16 out of 19) came via the Groundout and the Strikeout.

He was incredibly pitch-efficient, and his Strikes-to-Balls ratio was also exemplary.

Trey and/or Hyde ejected?

According to GameDay, only Hyde was ejected.

Mancini also came out of the game, but I think that was the plan all along.  Mancini had batted for Martin, so they needed to put a middle infielder in the game, and Wilkerson fit that role better than Mancini.

Did they ever show a replay of the check swing?

They showed a replay from overhead, which made it look like Mancini did not swing.

Then they showed a replay from ground level on the first base side, which made it look like he did swing.

The bat head broke the plane of the plate. It was a swing from the side view, but both Hunter and Roberts insist that it was borderline and could go either way. Roberts irritates me more every time I hear him.

Yeah, from an overhead cam.

I would have called it no swing.   But as we all know there is no clear standard, there's a big gray area where it can get called either way.

    • Hard to put much stock into what guys like Al Davis says. There is a host of reasons for the team to say in Baltimore. Just because there is a wild arse rumor floating that the team is looking into moving, doesnt make it true, or a probability, either.
    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
