More Umpire Madness

Unread postby dazindiansfanuk » Fri May 10, 2013 4:51 am

After Weds fuck up now it appears the Umps don't even seem to know the rules as they allowed the Astro's to change pitchers without one of them facing a batter.

And Bo Porter (Astros Manager) doesn't seem to know them either

Brian McTaggart ‏@brianmctaggart 4h
Porter says if there's a pinch hitter, you have a right to bring in another pitcher.


Madness!!

I would've loved to see what happened if the Angels lost this game.

Reminds me of the very obscure rule where a batter (switch hitter) must declare which side of the plate he is hitting from. and may only switch sides once, in the event of a change of pitchers during the AB.

/I'm reaching here...but I think Willy Mays was the inspiration for this rule, as he would switch sides depending on the pitch count and situation. Until they outlawed it off course. :guns:

Bo Porter speaks

"My understanding of the rule......"

Well, you've just basically said that your understanding of the rule is completely to the contrary of what the actual rule is...... not making yourself look good there, Bo!

There are obscure rules but I never thought this was one.
