Watching the Yankees v. Royals right now and the review team in NY just called a fan interfering with a home run ball an out. The fan clearly reached a bit and interfered with the outfielder. Consistent at least.

You can see the ball disappear momentarily. Not sure how you can say it hit anything but the shelf behind it.
If you watch from 1:03-1:10 on the video clip (full screen), you see the ball come down, they pause the video and you can see the ball on the fence, then they unpause it and the ball bounds back into the field. It doesn't disappear, it is just hard to see because of frame rate. There is a plate backing the padding. The ball never got to the red railing in front of the kid.

Yah, I think it hit the grey concrete wall attached to the padding, right on the corner of it

MLB needs better and more clear rules regarding fan interference. That ball was not going to be caught by the player, even if those stands were as empty as a LPTR day game in July.

No White, made up for it by a Stassi sighting.

White and Stassi are basically the same players

At least Stassi can catch

Not Astros related but pretty cool moment just happened watching the Pirates/Giants game with my son...

Cole Tucker was called up today. Fifth inning he comes up with one on and the rain is coming in. He gets in the box and there is a lightning strike in the distance in the center field direction. Tucker steps out for a sec and gets back in the box. Next pitch, big fly to center for his first MLB hit and home run.

This lineup, but with Chirinos instead of Stassi, is our best.

If Marisnick hits consistently, yes. If not, then Kemp.

Of course our best will be when Yordan comes up

Agreed as far as offensive production, but I'd say Marisnick's glove earns him a spot in the lineup over Kemp. Especially so far this season with his improved performance at the plate.

I'd rather have Fisher, Or Straw over white. At least they can provide speed on the bases if nothing else

Yea. Cole having a rough time this year. Wins are the most important/predictive stat for starting pitcher success and he only has 1 so far.
