it's funny because every time I see a play like this now I think to myself "would've been out with Baez tagging"
oh ok he's out anyway
ChatzMcGee
9:01
Ohhh, August is never right.
Spry
9:01
I think it's because his foot comes off
Dave Cameron
9:02
So silly.
Runners beats throw, runner safe.
If you are like a foot off the bag, okay, you're out.
Nodog

Does anyone else hate it when guys get called out for coming off the bag for a fraction of a second -- something impossible to see in real time?
august fagerstrom
9:02
yes so much
Dave Cameron
9:02
But momentarily lose contact because of physics? Still safe.

does not seem to be in the spirit of replay at all
but it's there, and they cant ignore it

Rule 162.2 - "If you're a foot off the bag, okay, you're out" haha. Not disparaging you, just, damn it must be hard to write a rulebook, no?
Dave Cameron
9:03
Yes, defining this stuff is tough. But this current definition is dumb.

Just change the oversliding rule to be that you're considered on the bag once you touch it until your whole body goes past it on the other side
Dave Cameron
9:04
Yeah, something like a vertical extension of the base would be my suggestion. If you're over the base, but not touching it, still safe.
Dakota McKee
9:05
you should be able to shoot webbing from your cleats (a la spiderman but the feet) so that call doesn't happen
august fagerstrom
9:05
strong agree here
Dave Cameron
9:05
Thor getting help.
9:06
A big zone and this stuff is unfair.
Brad

Hunter pence looks like he eats raw eggs for breakfast
Timb
9:06
That K brought to you by the Umpire's Union
The Hamburglar
9:07
He got help on that, but ball 2 was a strike
Bork
9:08
So the reasoning is that they didn't have enough evidence to overturn it. If it was called safe, would they have enough evidence to overturn it?
Dave Cameron
9:08
Yeah, default to whatever is on the field call.
Matt
9:08
Hunter Pence looks like he eats recently hatched eggs for breakfast
Dave Cameron
9:08
Laptop battery update: 45%. Don't think I'm going to make it.
Nachos update: still awful
The Hamburglar
9:09
Let's see when Dave's laptop battery life meets Bumgarner's pitch count
Paul
9:10
My name is Hunter Pence. I am a certified G and a bonafide stud and you...can't...teach...that
august fagerstrom
9:10
didn't realize Brian Wilson got into wrestling
The Hamburglar
9:11
Leave it to Jose Reyes to be the first Met to work the count
anonymous
9:12
Working the count = fouling off pitches outside of the zone
Triple deek
9:12
Jose Reyes has seen like 25% of the total pitches
Dave Cameron
9:13
Well that was a terrible pitch.
august fagerstrom
9:13
That was kind of a weird segment, talking about how he's trying to come in but missing over the plate while showing pitches spotted right at the upper edge of the zone
Maybe the approach is up, not in?
Dave Cameron
9:14
It's kind of the Giants thing, after all.
