Royals have never made the playoffs in my lifetime. Absolutely ridiculous how bad they've been for so long.

I'm thinking of a team that doesn't think it's that ridiculous.

A buddy is at a MILB game and both of his kids have caught foul balls tonight.
Those are some low odds.

Kimbrel is pitching against the Dodgers right now. The roster is a combined 0/31 against him.

EDIT: 1/31

Tulo done for the year. As awesome as he's been, he gets injured so often.

Lets hope my fantasy team can ride his stats into a win. He still produced well for me, and Rollins has been strong since going in for him.

The "umpire blocking the plate rule" is absolutely absurd, and getting dumber with each passing screwjob

All flowers had to do was be 2 feet up the first base line and it would have been an out. Or could straddle the plate? Catchers just need to adjust to the rule.

That's surely the letter of the rule, but it's ridiculous. His foot was blocking the bag for sure, but come on. In the sense of the rule it's a correct ruling, but the rule is beyond idiotic. Is this still the Buster Posey rule?

Given the letter and the spirit of the rule, hes safe. Not much to complain about on that one.

Pierzynski was in the basepath and whiffed on the tag. Bob Davidson blew the call badly and replay didn't fix it. That's not blocking but the play in Marlins/Reds two weeks ago is blocking? So glad Balkin' Bob is impacting playoff races.

That play wasn't blocking because he wasn't in the base path until he went to get the ball, which I believe is allowed. It was a bad call because of the tag, but wasn't a blocking the plate call.

Same thing happened in Marlins/Reds. They said it was blocking the plate even though Stanton's throw took the catcher slightly up the line. ( I think around the 5:40 mark you get a great view of where Mathis set up and how he had to slide to his left to take the throw.)

Pierzynski was in the basepath without the ball.

That's basically the same play and they both should have been called the same way. That screen shot is when pierzynsko is going to get the ball. Earlier he was well in front of home and only moved after the throw was made, just like Mathis.

Is the complaint that it was a bad call or that the rule has not been applied in a perfectly consistent manner?

I think inconsistent application. Neither play should have resulted in a blocking the plate out. One was, one wasn't. The one with the Cards was a missed tag call, and I don't think the blocking the plate was even a part of it, as it shouldn't have been. The Marlins call was called blocking the plate, and shouldn't have been.

It seems simplest to set up in front of the plate with both feet between the batters boxes. From there let the throw dictate where you go. It simplifies things for the ump and the review. Did he get to (whatever they call the area in front of the plate)? If so, did the throw pull him from position?
