Not in my book. You make the stop, you should then make the throw. If the runner beats it out, fine. Base hit. But if he's on first cause your throw pulled the first baseman, that's an E.

YMMV.

How do you discipline a daughter who can spike with authority.

Difficult choice tonight - this or the hockey game

I agree, and I haven't watched a full period of hockey since the Hartford Whalers moved, the second team the NHL moved on me in 4 years.

Possibly.

I think it's a pretty fair and consistent standard though...if your error (i.e. a bad throw) results in a base gained, that's then ruled an error.

Once you hit the dirt to make a play... Standing up and throwing would be considered an extroidanary effort to continue on make the out.

If that's an error... It would have been best for Carroll personally to just hold the ball and don't try.

Errors shouldn't be used to discourage effort.

Especially since he and Morneau actually made the play. Error on the Ump.

Nah, she's always been a great kid. Just a little lippy in her mid teens, but that's expected. It sure was fun coaching her until she quit playing softball though.

Well, congrats...you must be pretty proud. Not every parent who gets to watch their kid play on a national team.

Thanks, I am. Hell I almost cried when I saw her in Maroon and Gold for the first time.

batters should be able to call time out right before they swing and miss
