Astros @ Angels 6/24/15: Getaway Day Matinee
« on: June 24, 2015, 12:00:34 pm »
The Los Angeleeeez Angels of Anaheim have called up their top prospect, LHP Andrew Heaney, from the AAA Salt Lake Bees to take the hill against the Astros.  McCullers pitching for the 'Stros.   Game starts at 2:35 CDST.
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. 
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

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

I didn't think they charged errors for not getting a DP.

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.

Well I'll say this for him: if McCullers is gonna walk someone, he doesn't fuck around.

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.
