Yankees season relies on beating Verlander. Wow, trying to get out of a slump versus an elite pitcher

No idea why this slide by Holliday into Scutaro is a legal play.

Spoiler


That rule should be changed.

Holiday goes in there like a drunk being thrown out of a bar.

A bit of karma? Holliday makes an error on Scutaro's single allowing a run to score.

Spoiler

Crawford could have been called out, running to first on the ball fielded by Carpenter:

6.05 The batter is out when
(k) In running the last half of the distance from home base to first base, while the ball
is being fielded to first base, he runs outside (to the right of) the three-foot line, or
inside (to the left of) the foul line, and in the umpire’s judgment in so doing
interferes with the fielder taking the throw at first base, in which case the ball is
dead;


Crawford was well inside the line, and interfered with Carpenters throwing line to first base. Runners almost always run inside the foul line, and are never called for it unless the ball hits them and there at least a couple of feet inside the line, and from my observation, umpires rarely take notice of that infraction. Carpenter could have drilled him in the back, but it's too risky because the umps are seldom paying attention to that rule.

On the Holliday slide, the runner going to first could not have been called out on Holiiday's interference, even though Holliday never touched second base, and clearly had abandoned any effort to touch second. Since the throw was a good throw by Scutaro, accurate and strong and not delayed by the slide, and the collision took place after the throw, the failure to retire the runner could not be blamed on Holliday's action. Holliday could have been warned or ejected, but it would have been incorrect to call Craig out on the play. You can't call runners out after the fact, who would have been safe in any case.
