I wonder about this type of figure. Doesn't the strike zone have depth so that a curve can seem to be outside but passed through the zone in a way that the umpire picked up but the tracker missed? Doesn't the strike zone change slightly with the batter's stance?

 

Yes, binocular vision helps the ump, but my understanding is that the graphic is accurate-ish because it is compiled from several cameras. Sometimes in the broadcast they'll rotate the view 3D so you can see it clip the front or back edge of the plate.

I will be drinking heavily to forget that the Red Sox ever existed. Until spring training.

Even when we want them to lose they manage to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Can't do anything wrong. {#Frustrated}

What's this about The Series being played in Texas?
 

I think they went with a "neutral site" plan to minimize plane travel and keep the players in a "bubble" for the duration of the series. Playoffs are the same way. I saw someone lamenting that both Chicago teams could make the Series but there wouldn't be any home games.

Ya gotta hand it to the Olde Towne Team: they did not wait until September to start truly sucking. Now I know how it feels to root for a team that turns into a doormat on Day 1. 

Hopefully Chaim Bloom will get the team turned around pretty soon.

There's a group of Phillies fans that gather outside the stadium to watch the home games through a gate and cheer on the Phillies. They have air horns and a drumline and make a lot of noise. The Yankees complained they were distracting.
They call themselves The Phandemic Krew. they sell t-shirts and other merch to raise money for Phillies Charities. So far, they've raised over $11,000.
Here they are behind the Phillie Fan cut-outs—which is also awesome. I think the entire 1st level and part of the 2nd is full
Management have decided to make a Phandemic Krew Bobblehead in appreciation for all they've done.

Surprised nobody mentioned Lou Brocks passing. IPad is on the fritz and I'm on my Fire which is so small.
 

In one of those can't-really-compare-different-eras questions, I always wondered how he'd do as a base stealer today. When he was playing, the pitcher was allowed to do a lot more trickery, and I think balks weren't the knee-twitch-squint that they are now. I think he'd do well. And back then, in the NL, stealing wasn't as revered as it came to be during Rickey's tenure, so I think he'd have stolen more in the 80s. 

I was always a Rickey fan, though, so Lou came to be sort of a caricature of "the guy to beat." Hit for average, not just singles. Would have been exciting to see.
