CruiserTwelve: How would you score that play? Does Liriano get an RBI, even though he was safe on an error? Was that some kind of fielder's choice or sacrifice?
Tr0mBoNe: CruiserTwelve: How would you score that play? Does Liriano get an RBI, even though he was safe on an error? Was that some kind of fielder's choice or sacrifice?it should have been an infield sacrifice bunt for an RBI. Instead it was a fielders choice RBI. No error because the catcher doesn't get charged errors on poor throws against base stealers. The fielder could have been charged an error but it was a bad throw. It's actually a loophole.. have your catcher run out and make the throw to catch base stealers and you get no error if he messes up.That's what you get with almost 150 years rule evolution. I'd love to design a genetic algorithm to represent baseball players and managers and see what kinds of rules get defined after hundreds of seasons of play. I have a feeling that by the end all the players will stay in the dugouts and decide the winner based on quality of cup scratching and tobacco spit distances. My genetic algorithms are always lazy.
