They may want to check Hoskins bat for cork. The game winning home run looked llike it was playable when it left his bat but it kept going and going and going. These guys have to give Barrious a little more support when he goes out and pitches a good game like that. We need a little more than one run. 

 

That home run was scary. If the can park it on that pitch... he can park it on any pitch. 

 

Forget Harper... Hoskins is the guy to watch in Philly.

Personally, I don't mind the imperfections of human umpires, but I'm starting to endorse robo-umps, in the hopes that it would reduce the "we wuz robbed!" fan commentary.

It would reduce the "we wuz robbed!" fan commentary because it would reduce robbery.

I'm not sure most of the complaints are based on actual robbery, but rather perceived robbery...

Those pitching diagrams can't be right.There should be 133 and 134 dots on those charts, respectively.

Pitches that are batted wouldn't be on those charts.
