I haven't seen one of those since Rookie of the Year.  Which is to say I've never seen one executed in an actual game before.

At least Hernandez was right for once.

me neither. the staging and "trick" aspect of it were much better in the movie. I put this one on the third base coach.

I still can't believe his blown homerun call against the A's earlier this year. With the aid of instant replay no less!

And by rule what he did in the movie was illegal.

This shiat is FAKE. Everyone knows Juan Uribe played for the Giants.

fark you for suggesting otherwise.

Gonna be that guy...

That's not the farking  "hidden ball trick".

Dude threw it to Longoria... that's not exactly tricky.

Fine the 3B coach... his fault.

/also... fark the Doyers.

Both the third base coach and Uribe. You should always follow the ball. You shouldn't miss two throws.

As for rarity, it is rare but not nearly unheard of. It happens every couple years or so. However, any play that relies on the opposition not paying attention isn't very reliable.

Probably not. Presumably someone called time at some point that wasn't shown or the runner would have had a free jog around the bases. Without the pitcher on the mound with the ball, play never resumed so they couldn't do anything illegal, it just never happened. Although it is possible some other rule could be applied for the conduct wasting time and such.

The other thing is I don't recall if they actually showed his foot on the rubber (or feigning to be on it), the only thing that is illegal in MLB. He could stand beside or behind it (not uncommon for a pitcher before taking position) and not be guilty of a balk. In contrast to most lower levels where even standing on the mound without the ball is illegal.

Broken clock and all of that.

I mean, we rip the bastard and rightfully so. But I'll give him credit for paying attention to what was up and being on top of it, unlike the Dodgers were.

He had the rosin bag in his glove to simulate the ball. That in itself is a balk.

That was sneaky good. Also, Angel, you have eyes? I'll be damned.
 
2013-08-11 02:42:25 AM  
"That's a great job by the umpiring crew, specifically Angel Hernandez..."

I think my head just exploded.  I certainly never thought I'd hear those words uttered.
 
2013-08-11 03:53:17 AM  
Wow.  That was amazing.  A hidden ball trick that took three players to execute, -and- the umpire knew exactly what was going to happen. LOLzy.
 
2013-08-11 04:12:42 AM  
Juan Uribe, living up to his sterling reputation in Dodgers uniform, again.

After seeing a perfect game last year, a hidden ball trick and bench clearing brawl are a couple of the things I have yet to see live.

Also, the announcers here suck. They biatch about how the players aren't doing the right thing (one actually says "that's youth these days"...), and then attack the officials for making the wrong call. After two minutes of whining they finally figure it out, and say Angel Hernandez was the most important part of the play. No, dipshiat, the most important part was how three Dodgers threw the ball around and Uribe and the third base coach didn't realize it, just like you didn't.

It was a national TV game so it wasn't Vin. If I recognized that boring voice correctly, the play by play guy was the snoozefest called Chris Myers

You should always know where the ball is before you step off the base, but that's also the third base coach's fault.

I love the fact that it was executed so well that it fooled the announcers and the entire production staff for a few minutes.

yeah, the announcers were quick to jump on the umpires by default before knowing what was really going on.  Typical Fox coverage, more about sizzle and whooshing graphics rather than getting things right and not jumping to conclusions.

Scully would have likely picked up on it immediately.

Oh, man. Thanks for taking two separate sentences and pretending that I messed up the grammar by putting them next to each other. I thought it was fairly clear since there were four sentences and three slashies in between, but those were individual thoughts. Let me make it easier for you to understand:

Thought 1: The announcers here suck. By this I mean I listened to the nearly four-minute long clip, heard two announcers, and realized that neither of them were watching the ball closely and decided to rip on both the players who had it under control and the umps who were taking a day off from screwing things up.

Thought 2: I hope this isn't that Vin Scully whom so many farkers love. By this I mean I hope this one guy (hence this instead of these) in the video isn't Vin. I don't watch too many Dodger games (being a fan of an AL team in the midwest) so I don't know what Vin sounds like.

Thank you for the info. Now I know if Hawk ever gets canned or loses his speech due to too many opponent walk-offs, that there is at least one person on earth who wouldn't be an improvement.

What the fark? I wasn't commenting on your grammar.

Let me return the favor and make it easier for you to understand: Vin Scully works the booth alone, so if there are multiple announcers, he isn't one of them.

Asshole.

...

Like I said, I'm not familiar with Dodger's baseball or their announcing squads. When I read your reply I thought you were saying that Vin is one person, not two, and being an asshole to me. I humbly apologize for reading your sentence wrong.

/not the first time I've unintentionally been an asshole on fark
/usually it's intentional
/sorry for being an asshole this time
