C'mon Snyder
« on: May 02, 2012, 09:43:54 am »
That's not Astros baseball.  Bagwell must have been throwing stuff at the TV.

Nice moonshot and all but I'm surprised he was not eating dirt the next at bat.  Vid at 40 seconds shows him pulling a Puljos admiring his shot.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

I give you a gift and you stand there and show up my pitcher? RUN, DUMMY!
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Must have been the first time he hit a homerun.

Quote from: Snyder
"I knew I got it," Snyder said. "It was right down the line, so definitely I was just checking to see if it would go fair or foul."
 


So the question is, are you allowed to stay near home and watch if it could go foul?

At least to me, it didn't look like it was that close to foul.  Looked like he was admiring it.

It was right down the line.  We were sitting on the third base side, so we really had no idea if it was fair or fowl (pun) until the ump signaled it.

I thought he looked stunned. Not admiring, but more disbelieving.

I don't think he was being rude, but it did look like he stood there too long.
It's my estimation that every man ever got a statue made of 'em was one kinda sombitch or another.

Walked the video in slow mo.  It looks like it hit the wall to the just left of middle of the arch left of the crawford boxes, which I think puts it hitting the wall in foul territory and therfore had to hook around the poll.  So either it's foul and Snyder needs to get back in the batter's box or a HR and he needs to travel around the bases on an acceptable pace.  I think you should be allowed to watch if it's fair before running the bases on a ball that is in doubt.

Watch it again and assume he is quietly excited but doesn't know if it is going to go foul or not.  His demeanor fits that bill as well.

+1 The fact that he didn't get dusted the next time up tells me that the pitcher and catcher understood what he was doing, i.e., waiting to see if the ball was fair or fowl.

No!  You run.  It's in play potentially, and you don't know what's going to happen.

+1 That ball was out of the yard right off of the bat. It was merely a question of fair versus fowl.

Then you run.

If you run every time, you never get embarrassed ending up at 1B when running on the crack of the bat would've had you at 3B because of a boot or bad carom.

If you run every time, you never get accused of "glossing", which means that you will never cause you or a teammate to get one in the ear.

If you run every time, the defense will be wary of your running and may end up making an error.

If you run every time, you earn the respect of fans, players, coaches and media alike.

You run every time because it's your job.

You run every time because it's the right thing to do.

Agreed.  That's a lot of running.

What about mixing in a jog every now and then?  A stroll?  Perhaps a saunter?

This is what I thought when I watched it live.  He didn't do any bullshit like flip his bat or stare down the other dugout.  He knew it had the distance, and was waiting for fair/foul 'cause he didn't want to run his fatass around for no reason.

Why not?  They're supposed to be athletes, and part of the job description is running.

No, but it's priced far more than comparable books, and you have to get 6 of them at a time.
