Nothing but consistency from Angel Hernandez.


At first I was outraged...Then I saw it went against the Yankees and now I'm perfectly fine with it.

Let the run score and take the out at first. Runner on second two outs.


I get that. I can't figure out how anyone thinks going to home was the right read...Servais included.

They were down by one run late. Preventing the run there is the second best option to turning two and getting out of the inning. And on that ball, two was not guaranteed and in my opinion, almost unlikely.

Remember the Bregman play against the Yankees in 2017? Similar situation. First and third with one out. He came home because he had no chance to turn two. Catchers can't assume the double play, especially on a ball pulling the shortstop away from the bag. Stay home to make that an option for the fielder, who has to make a split decision. I get the need to back up first, but honestly, how many times in a season does a catcher actually field an overthrow on a double play turn?

Late to the conversation, but "never assume a double play." Even if that ball is hit harder and more directly at the SS, stay at home and expect a major leaguer to make a good throw to 1st that requires no backing up. Cuz if the throw is wide, run is scoring anyway. Stay home and prevent the run, take the out at first if you can't get 2.

Half the weight, three times the pop. Gives him a Tyler White Conversion Factor (TWCF) of 6.

Damn Julia, Blum, and Kalas have a sweet gig.

Travel with the team all over the country, off during the day, watch baseball every night, and then off for 6 months of the year.

Yeah this is getting kind of ridiculous. Dude needs to come up to the big leagues and be given a chance.

I hate Seager more, but he's been somewhat quiet this year.

I might be exaggerating, but it seems Luhnow has publicly said more negative things about the kid than positive.

Dang Reddick was slow on that one. Good pitch to run on and a subpar throw and he was out by a mile.

I believe that Lunhow has enough skins on the wall to trust his evaluation of their players.

Because it's posturing

One of the oldest sayings in baseball is if you can hit they'll find a spot for you.

He's ready. They're just waiting
