It most certainly is not necessary. However some people, like myself, may enjoy seeing the location of previous pitches.




Mujica in for the Cards. 24% less line drives. 11% more ground balls. 7% less in field flies. 49% less walks and 18% less K's. Leads to an expectation of 6% less runs.

Cardinals are kicking the Nats' asses

And this is why the MLB doesn't award 2 assists on defensive plays like the NHL allows offense assits

They had no choice facing a 0-2 hole with 3 games coming up in Washington.

I get that MLB doesn't want games being shown at the same time, but if I were a Giants fan, I would be a bit annoyed that the game starts at 2:30 local time. The game is not even going to get good ratings on the east coast with a 5:30 start time. They would have been better off having the game start at 8:30 Ohio time imo.

Yankees/Orioles starting pitchers


Andy Pettite
gave up 25% less line drives, 30% more ground balls, 24% less fly balls and 5% less infield flies. He walked 13% less while striking out 29% more hitters than the average. His expected runs allowed is 25% less than the average AL starter

Wei-Yin Chen
gave up 2% less line drives, 17% less ground balls, 23% more fly balls and 12% less infield flies. He walked 5% less while striking out 4% less hitters than average. His expected runs allowed is exactly at the average.

Why wasn't Ichiro called out, on this rule:

7.08 Any runner is out when—
(a) (1) He runs more than three feet away from his base path to avoid being tagged
unless his action is to avoid interference with a fielder fielding a batted ball. A
runner’s base path is established when the tag attempt occurs and is a straight
line from the runner to the base he is attempting to reach safely;


Ichiro ran around behind the catcher's box, when Wieters was in the baseline holding the ball and after attempting the tag. Ichiro is out if he runs more than three feet from a direct line between Wieters holding the ball and home plate. This is not a judgment call, the back of the catcher's box is eight feet from the plate, or five feet outside the 3-foot baseline. with a white chalkline on the ground to help the ump. It is an infraction of rule 7.08(a)(1), which the umpire simply ignored. The game should be played under protest.

The purpose of this rule is to avoid the necessity for a fielder to chase a runner around in circles, while other runners might be advancing.

I don't know.

They always allow that kind of play

Cano could have an automatic triple, just by Ichiro running around and around the field. But not an inside the park home run, because he's have to pass Ichiro to do that.

Say, with none out, runner on third, grounder to short Shortstop throws home, the runner takes the catcher on a merry chase down to the bullpen and back, while the batter jaunts around to third base.

Can't do it: 7.08(a)(1), runner is out, play can be made on the batter.

I wouldn't let Chen start the 5th inning.

It'll be his 3rd time through the line up. The meat of the Yankees' line up is due up. Ichiro, A-Rod and Cano.

And Chen has a marked difference in his results the 3rd time he faces a hitter.
1st time: .704 OPS
2nd time: .704 OPS
3rd time: .774 OPS

He's been on the ropes all night. The only thing in his favor is that 2 of the 3 scheduled hitters are lefties.
