In the end, my dissolution with the game of baseball will not be a result of any loss of love for the game, rather from the realization that I can no longer bear the anger its supposed stewards cause to be built up in my soul. -Lee (01/08/2013)

Altuve hit the shit out of that ball, but it was on one hop right at Aybar.

Shit.  Carter just whiffed at that double play ball.  I assume Correa will get the error, but it should be on Carter.

No error if an out is made and runners didn't move up

Jesus. When it is going to stop being acceptable to call insane not close pitches for punchouts on rookies? Correa just took one that was 6 inches inside and maybe a little down and got rung up on it.

Wow Preston, that was about the worst footwork I've ever seen on a fly ball. Pujols should've been out by 5 feet if you'dve had ANY momentum behind that throw.

A runner reaching base on a missed throw is certainly cause for crediting an error.

Nope, you cannot be charged an error if a force out is recorded and no runner was able to advance because of it.  You can throw the relay over home plate and not be charged an error.  You can bounce a throw off Carter's skull into right field, if the runner doesn't advance, no error

So the MiLs hit this pitcher around a bit says Ashby. Something about him reminds me of Bumgarner. The delivery for sure.

Says who?  Another common misconception that you can't be charged an error if you get an out on the play. or you can't "assume the double play".
 
Rule 9.12(d) Comment: When a fielder muffs a thrown ball
that, if held, would have completed a double play or triple play,
the official scorer shall charge an error to the fielder who drops
the ball and credit an assist to the fielder who made the throw.


Carter can absolutely be charged an error on that.

He deserved one. Oddly I think scorers are sometimes reluctant to give an error if the fielder does not touch the ball. He did not drop it.

The rules of scoring address that too.  A fielder doesn't have to touch a ball to be charged an error.  I understand that no error was charged on that play, but one absolutely could have and should have been.

Was referring to Correa.  Correa can not make an error on the play if the runner doesn't advance. 

Curious side note though.  What constitutes a "muff"  Can an untouched ball be "muff"ed?

Of course it can.  The rules refer to a "muff" all the time in terms of a ball that is just missed and hits the ground.

I think the count went full before Pujols flyed out to Santana on the warning track.

Unfuckingbelievable.

Tucker leads off the 9th with a single.  Springer pinch running, and is picked off before the next pitch.  So Springer is not longer an option to pinch hit.

Now Gattis hits one in the corner, jogs into 2B and is thrown out.

What a fucking disaster of an inning.

Fuck you, Carter. Fuck you and your constant bullshit half swings at garbage. You are the fucking anti-clutch.

Not scoring in the 9th sucks on the road.  Now you have to get AT LEAST six more outs to win this game.

I don't understand why Carter was playing in on the grass. The walk off single was just a little looper that landed well on the infield dirt. If Carter is playing normal depth, it's an easy out.

He was positioned where he would be with less than two outs, as if he had to cut a run down at the plate.

I did not pay attention to the alignment. I may be wrong, but I do not think the hit landed on the dirt.

ETA: if he was out of position, a coach should have backed him up.

Oh it did.  I went back and verified multiple times.  It landed about three or four feet inside the dirt, and it wasn't exactly smoked.  I even got a screen grab of it, but since we don't allow pictures here (who made up that rule anyway?)...

Carter was a on the infield grass, just to the 2B side of the cutout.  Perhaps that's where the scouting report on Featherston said he should be.  I just found it odd that he was so far in with 2 outs.
