Here's what I'd like to see:

When we fall behind in the count,  stay protective but don't put the pitcher's pitch in play every time.  Foul that shit off, make him work and pounce when something hittable, even if its *just* a single.

I realize this is groundbreaking.

I'll send my thesis to the nobel committee.

Springer and Altuve both looked like they were swinging to be heroes. Hopefully they can shorten things up and chill out.

Yes, please

That curve went thru 2 feet of the strike zone.

 Verlander won't pout or crumble if guys get on with weak ass contact.

Back of the rotation,  please pay attention.

Or if the umpire blatantly screws him on the strike zone for the third time in 10 minutes.

top of 2

Sanchez, strike, foul,    swinging bunt, single..
Bird, ball, strike, swinging strike, swinging strike.  Sit down meat!   1 out
Castro, first pitch fly ball to Springer, 2 out
Hicks, curve for a strike showed bunt, called a ball but was clearly a strike, foul, changeup that hicks swings at weakly.   

3 outs

0 - 0

Verlander's stats with this ump are a worry, 1 - 4  6+ era.

That statistics on when Reynolds is behind the plate is bullshit.    Clearly that shows that Reynolds is an asshat.   And proves that MLB is doing whatever they can to anoint the Yankees.

I am enjoying the fact that Smoltz isn't hiding his near disgust with the HPU so far.
