Guys, could you make a pitcher WORK for a change?

Burnett got Jones, Markakis, and Huff to swing at the FIRST pitch. Come on!!

I generally agree. But, not in this case. Burnett throws a lot of strikes and if you fall behind, his is a strikeout pitcher. So you have to attack him early in counts.

    • Are you looking for an infield fly runner's interference?  Because as far as I know, it's been 12 years since this exact situation was called.  This is the play that caused the rule to be changed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJu3RL8CV_8   They let the runner bat again and called the 1st base runner out in this case, and then in the offseason clarified the rule to say that both the runner and the batter are out.  But in this case the runner's interference was fairly substantial direct contact.   If you're talking about runners interference in general, on this play Kieboom didn't touch the runner and it was called runner's interference.   https://www.mlb.com/video/yadier-molina-grounds-into-a-force-out-fielded-by-shortstop-carter-kieboom-marcell-ozuna-out-at-3rd-jose-martinez-to-2nd-yadier-molina-to-1st?q=5%2F1%2F2019 stl vs was&cp=CMS_FIRST&qt=FREETEXT&p=3   The outcome of the play shouldn't really matter.  If you commit a face mask in football, and the guy whose face mask you grabbed gets a sack-fumble and recovers, you still get the ball and you get 15 yards.
    • The ball isn't dead when the IF fly rule is called. The batter's just out.  That's it.  The runners can advance after the ball touches the fielder or the ground and it's fair... so it's still important to control the baseball in that situation, and why you still can't interfere with a fielder making a play on an IF-fly-ruled pop-up. 
    • Mike Baumann is so many things but solid isn’t one of them. He’ll be playing independent ball next year
    • It at least explains why he was pitching poorly.  This isn't a surgery that you can't come back from depending on how bad the back is.  
    • Unless he got a super slow jump on it, but that's not what it looked like with the naked eye.
    • I would love to see an example of the rule being applied in a comparable situation.
    • Eh, Baumann just got to face more batters per inning given all the walks and hits he gave up.  Wells had K% of 25% vs. 22.3% for Bauman.  His ERA, FIP, xFIP, and SIERA were all better than Baumann.
