    That's what I get, I guess.

    Mrs Chief and I are going refrigerator shopping later.
    So new one for the house and older one to the garage?

    But didn't Dozier commit a fundamentally bad baserunning play? You never run from second to third when the ball is hit in front of you ... Then Morales singles, which would have scored Dozier.

    But he got to second by headsup baserunning ...

    Maybe, but I think it was a mistake.

    Yeah it wasn't good... I assume he didn't notice where Ramirez was positioned and went to third on instinct. Thinking it was in the hole or the 3B getting to the ball leaving the base open.

    No, the one in the house is relatively new and relatively expensive. We'll find something cheap for the garage to keep the, uh, refeshments cold. That and the freezer space is what we need.

    It was... As a coach... I always tell my players... If you are on second base... You have to know where everybody is positioned. You have to look behind you and know where the SS is.

    If the umps don't like the pace of play, and feel the need to basically extort the pitcher to play at the pace they want them to play, then find a new career.
    No offense taken. Even the pros admit that the slow moving pitcher often doesn't get the close calls. And after letting the catcher know to get some giddyup in his teammate, and the pitcher blows him and me off, well, too bad.

    BTW, I was a top-rated official in the amateur ranks.

    Get a Big Screen TV for the wall and you'll be ready to officially move in.

    I'm not so sure Santana would have scored if Dozier hadn't tried to go to third
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Thank goodness you're focused on the important stuff. The other posters are talking about some baseball game.

    Another one?

    Not a bad idea, when given some thought. Gonna be a tough sell, though.

    With his speed...and a tag needed... I think he had it but Runners can be a decoy in that situation.

    All in All... I'm happy for the run!

    I have to say, though that the mixture of nightcrawlers with other things was a little disconcerting.

    And please don't tell me that you eat watermelon at room temp.

So as a fan, fast play is a treat. When I umpired, I know I could do a better job when play didn't drag, as well. (And, it's no secret, the fast-working pitcher got more strikes called from me. Imagine that.)

    My question: Wouldn't players behind the pitcher want him to work faster, too? Wouldn't coaches be coaching that, as well? (I know I did.) OK, that's two questions.
    I love that video, too. I also noticed how quiet the fans are. They are watching, not pumping their fists and shouting.
