Do I really now need to start reliving the worst season in the history of my team on FARK? I'm lodging a formal complaint with the management.

Oh yeah!

/OH YEAH!

Looker safe, on the bag no tag hand comes off the bag and fielder gets tag back on too late hard to tell though but still not really showing much except big guys need to be careful stretching hits into doubles that aren't up against the wall.

It's weird how a team that trades away all its talent for scrappiness isn't doing well. But it's early so I'm sure they'll recover.

The only thing I can take solace in is Jarrod Parker got hurt again.

Sarcasm aside, J Up, Skaggs, and Kennedy would be pretty nice to have around about now.

They'll recover when Kevin Towers gets told to clean out his office. Supposedly, even the primary owner of the team has started ripping him.

Good lord, ESPN hangs from Puig's balls more than Madden did from Favre's

No idea if it was reviewed or not, but the box score shows it as an out.



The box score shows it as a single for Montero.

They'd need to get rid of Gibson too. There's no way he'd work with any sort of sane GM at this point.

More or less, I agree with you but Towers has said publicly that he's apologized to Gibby over this mess. I think Towers will take the fall first (and is setting himself up for that) and if things don't look like they're improving after some changes and/or Gibby can't work with whomever takes over at GM; then he'll be gone too. But at this point, I (and most others) just need to see some changes.

That's why they're such a great pairing with Bayless. He'll shill/troll pretty much anything as long as it keeps him on TV earning that $.

It was.  However, it still doesn't top the one I saw in a game from 1975 when Dwight Evans fired a straight shot from right field and pegged a guy at third base.

/Yeah, I'm old.

Rick Ankiel did that a couple of games after his comeback.

Man he could throw.  Never got the recognition he deserved.  Class act.

Johnny Texas: No idea if it was reviewed or not, but the box score shows it as an out.


I saw this live.....he was safe but the ump had the wrong angle.  Gibby ran out and was stalling for time for review, but he decided not to burn a challenge.  from the center field camera he was safe but Gibby evidently didn't get that view.


desertgeek: Supposedly, even the primary owner of the team has started ripping him.


I caught Kendrick on 620 a couple days ago, he said he's "obviously disappointed" but said he's sticking with Gibby and KT.  he said something kinda odd, like, "is kevin towers going into the 'GM Hall Of Fame' for how we've started?  No, but it  is still early."

and didn't the Snakes get out to a blistering 25-5 start 4-5 years ago and then miss teh playoffs?

To be far he is a super natural talent with an enigmatic personality and one wild back story that could involve being a double agent for Castro.

Upton got so much undeserved shiat from Phoenix media it's no surprise he wanted to leave.  It doesn't help that the team built him up as the second coming of Babe Ruth so he could only fail.  I agree that we should have kept Skaggs, but Kennedy was throwing garbage by the time he left, and if it wasn't for pitching at Petco his ERA would be through the roof.

What's so frustrating is that we don't have trouble scoring runs most games, but we might as well just put a tee ball stand at home plate the way our pitchers are going.

have you noticed how the organization has basically used the "lessons learned" approach, re Goldy?  granted Goldy doesn't have that charismatic personality, but.....yeah.  they tried to turn Up into someone/something he wasn't and it just tailspun.  he could never live up to the expectations.  goldy, meanwhile, they're just letting him be.  the only thing they really do with him is what they do with everybody:  bobbleheads, poster night, etc.  treat him as just a regular dude.

I am glad to see that.  It only took 10 years from the Baby Backs, Daigle, Co-Jack, Drew, Quentin, Young, Reynolds, and Upton for them to figure out that you don't make a kid fresh out of AAA out to be the savior of the franchise.

jesus.  reading that made me physically wince.  gosh dammit so much talent was traded away.  for what?

i hated the Scherzer trade, too.
 
2014-04-21 08:54:15 PM  
Tremendous play by Puig to make it that close, but yeah, because of the way he slid and the late tag he was safe.  Montero did a good job sliding away from the SS to make him take him high.  Bad call by the ump, but that is a bang-bang play.

Which is correct (whether he was safe or not).

When a hitter gets thrown out after reaching first. The correct scoring is a hit to the last base he reach safely (in this case first, so a single, if he was thrown out going to third it would be a double) and a put out.
