How deep was that? Watching on stat cast from abroad, and that looked scary

Didn't make the track but Yankees fans were going nuts like TK does in Astros broadcasts when they hit routine flys

Maybe that's why the ump was off. Is he concusses?

I think this makes a lot of sense. Concussions can be scare to deal with and rough to recognize as an individual.

Maybe he's concussed because he was calling a really good game until the last inning.

Now the guys have to sit and wait for the umpire to get geared up...

I'll interpret this as validation that his zone was horse**** last inning. Because it was.

Hope blue feels better soon.

Snowflake umpire.

That's BS move by the ump.

If you're not good enough to go this inning you weren't good enough last inning.

He should not have been behind the plate.

I'm having to watch this on mute...what's going on? Is it just the ump change taking a while? Why were Judge and Gardner in the BP?

If Cole has to wait, I hope it's because we're putting up a crooked number.

The sitting around is going to be secondary to getting used to a completely different strike zone. Cole was living up high and there is no telling if he's still going to get that call. Now, the pitchers and batters are going to have to feel this game out again.

You could read Hinch's lips in the dugout telling Cole "He missed two" .

They are warming up cause yankees are out of pitchers

Yep. Hurting Cole in two ways ---- horrid calls and/or non-calls and now icing his arm.
Buck Compton

Yeah, at least he finally admitted the concussion. Big man. Gotta be tough to do when this is one of the things you work towards as an umpire. He was wildly inconsistent that last half inning though.

6 umpires is really unnecessary anyways. Not sure what the delay is for. Just don't have an ump down one of the lines

Totally agree. He didn't do it on purpose but he affected the game by trying to stay in for that half inning. Get out at the full inning if you can.

Takes time to put on a suit of armor and call balls and strikes
