(Major League Baseball)   Playing baseball is a bit different from normal. It's harder to see a pop fly, running and sliding change dramatically, and the ball may not bounce that well on wet grass. Josh Hamilton demonstrates the importance of that last point   (wapc.mlb.com) divider line 40

If he played for the little league team I coach he'd know to get in front of the ball and get his glove on the ground.

Funny thing is he had no play at all on the field.  The runner at second would not advance to home on a shallow fly, or even attempt it, and the hitter had a routine single.  There is no reason to not just get down and field the ball as if you were fielding an infield grounder

What was the deal last night? Between this game and the fog in Chicago, there was quite a bit of baseball being played in poor conditions.

As an O's fan I actually felt bad for the Angels last night.  The field was absolutely atrocious when the Orioles scored those two runs in the 6th.

Although, the Angels put guys on in the top half of the inning, and if they'd extended the inning and scored them, the game probably would've been delayed between the top and bottom half, and then the O's would've been screwed over.

you have pee hands: Has anyone pointed out that subby sentence?


Has anyone pointed out that this is just a video of a baseball player making a routine error?  WTF?  How did this go green?

Sign some bullpen instead of past their prime bats, Angels.

I didn't feel bad for them.  I just thought it was silly to try and play baseball in that much rain.  There are going to be errors when you are playing in a downpour and it's not the Orioles fault that MLB didn't call the game before that point.  Plus the Orioles already had a 2-1 lead before the error, and it was a base hit.

Also for all of those "sports fans" who biatch about "football is played in the rain, why can't baseball?"  There you have it, a baseball game in the rain.  I guess it's just lucky that the pitcher didn't slip on the mound and wind up beaning someone or hurting themselves.

It was tied at 2 at the time Hamilton made the error.

What'd be awesome would be for the pitcher to slip, and accidentaly bean the home-plate umpire in the head. Knocked. The. Fark. Out. I can think of half a dozen MLB umps that I'd like to see that happen to...

You don't get a base hit on an error. That was what we call an E9 (for those scoring at home).

Because, Josh Hamilton.

Looked just like how he ended the season in Texas. Can't wait to hear his excuse for that one. It didn't look like it was raining at the time, based on the video. He's just lazy.

Rule #1: Get your ass down & your glove dirty. He seems to have forgotten that one.

Ah, I forgot about the home run before that point.  Of course it would have helped if I had watched the video first. :)

As much body armor as most Umps wear, it likely wouldn't have hurt.  If the pitcher's lead foot slipped off the mound, the velocity would have been cut enough that it wouldn't have knocked out someone with a face mask.  It is still dangerous, but I doubt an Ump would be knocked out by it unless they are the type that doesn't like wearing pads..

It was certainly raining at the time.  Pretty hard too.  Watch the beginning of the video again.  If you watch his footing, he was pulling up on his run because he didn't want to slip as he came up to the ball.  That's not to say that he didn't mess up, but there were other factors in play as well.

You don't get a base hit on an error. That was what we call an E9 (for those scoring at home).

That play was a base hit followed by an error.  He couldn't have made an out on the play, however the error allowed the run to score.  I believe the official score was a single and an E9.

Also same as the end of last year, he doesn't bother to try to retrieve the ball  - the center fielder has to go chase it while Josh hangs his head

Fair enough. Watching on my phone, so I can't really tell if it was coming down at that point. He still sucks & he ain't our problem.

How can someone go from great to awful so quickly? I guess that since I'm living in DFW I generally only get to see the mistakes without any of the highlights, but man do I get a good laugh out of looking at his awful stats every week. And with those numbers I'm guessing that the highlights are almost nonexistent.

Albert Pujols asks himself this question nightly.  It's strange that his stats have dropped all around since going to the AL.  Especially since that was the place God (and a few million dollars) told him he should go.

And with those numbers I'm guessing that the highlights are almost nonexistent.

In the second half of the season last year, pitchers found his weakness: low and inside. It all snowballed from there. He started slumping, the Rangers started slumping, impending free agency got into his head, he started making excuses, then mistakes, and eventually the fans turned on him. His performance in the "wild card" game last season was truly one of the worst things I've ever seen.

Playing in Arlington the first week of the season this year did him no favors. I think he honestly thought he would get a warm reception... even after his extraordinarily dumb comments about DFW.

When you're a mental midget like JH, it's hard to get past all that.
