The Heckler posted that The Dodgers have banned for life all fans who left in the eighth inning.

What’s all this talk about Sox grannies in the bleacher section at Fenway Paaahk. Isn’t it past their bed time?

I know I fell asleep in the late innings only to find out we done did it again.

Braves in 5. Dodgers survived the DS but aren't hitting and are making some bonehead errors. The Braves are fresh and not nearly as good but they'll be better. 

Or Dodgers in 5. I have no idea. Don't really want the team that sent the Giants home to show up and suck though. Put up a fight, Doyers!

I kind of want to be a masochist and see how many balls were called strikes and vice versa. Urias got a few strikeouts without actually crossing the plate or getting a swing.

So hey, check this thing out: scroll down the left side to see a pitcher's trends. Pretty cool:

Epic game, marred by weather but by my general recollection of balls that died on the warning track, the outcome would have been the same. As it was, it was an absolute first-pitch-to-last-out butt-clench. I imagine hitters are going to try to hit 'em on the ground tonight. Camilo Doval got, what, 5 fly ball outs in 6 batters? This should have been a 7-game series.

Any thoughts on Boston vs. the Rays? I understand that "automatic" double was in the rule book and correctly called, but what a way to lose.



I saw the video clip of that play and it was odd. But the rule was in place well before the game and you gotta follow the rules. 

From USA Today

Here, in fact, is Rule 5.05(a)(8):

"Any bounding fair ball is deflected by the fielder into the stands, or over or under a fence on fair or foul territory, in which case the batter and all runners shall be entitled to advance two bases."

Even if the baserunner was moving on the play. Even in a disparate and funky alley of Fenway Park. Even in an era of instant replay, when some discretion, you'd imagine, could be applied.


The NY Times sez that the Tampa Bay Rays have dealt with this rule before:

...the Rays, perhaps more than most teams, should have been familiar with how the umpires’ decision on Kiermaier’s hit would come down: They argued for the same ruling to be enforced in their favor on a similar play in 2019.


From the Twitter link just above: 

"In 2019 Kevin Cash came out to argue about a ball deflected into the stands that the runner on first should be stopped at 3rd base. He was correct and the umps got it right, just like tonight."

The Twitter page has a video clip of the 2019 play. 

The whole thing reminds me of the "tuck rule" playoff game between the NE Patriots and the Oakland Raiders. That rule helped the Pats win the game and win their first Super Bowl.
