  • Batters box is already 6 inches off the plate, and that inside line gets erased by the 2nd inning. I doubt it's very useful to alter them.

      That was my other thought. I assumed the plate was a better reference than chalk lines off the plate...

        The Atlanta Braves banned four TBS announcers from the team’s chartered flights after the cable channel revealed that the catcher’s box was altered at Turner Field, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported in Tuesday’s editions.
        During the first inning of Saturday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers, TBS aired video showing the catcher’s box was four to five inches smaller than the previous night. The footage was shown after a rare balk call Friday against Atlanta catcher Fernando Lunar for lining up with his right foot outside the box.

        Opposing teams have long claimed that Atlanta pitchers are given the benefit of an extra-wide strike zone, particularly on the outside corners. Catchers who set up wide of the plate can increase the chances of an outside pitch being called a strike.

          The incident (and TBS's overlay from the previous night) starts at 6:50 of the video.

          • Albert Pujols somehow makes it to the second round of the derby. Put up a weak 13, but Schwarber never got into a groove and it went to a swing off where Pujols then ripped off seven in a minute.

            ESPN is showing the speed and launch angle of each hit. Seems like anything 100mph+ and 20 degrees or more gets out, so once you get the pattern down you can tell if it's going to be a home run or not well before it lands. I feel like George Costanza.

              Philly fans are screaming that it is rigged and Schwarber also hit 20. I haven't watched enough replays to truly be able to tell. Could be Philly being Philly.

                • ASG jerseys are miles better than last season since they’re just different colored versions of the regular jerseys. Would still be better if they still wore the normal threads though.

                  Also, if this game is tied after the 9th, instead of extras, they’re going to choose three players a side and do a HR derby where each player gets three swings.

                    They ruined the ASG by ditching the team unis. Capitalism destroys everything it touches.

                        According to Manfred, MLB didn't have a "particularly appealing look" for nearly 90 years.

                        • Another crime against humanity by NL hitters tonight. It feels like we have lost 20 straight of these. A far cry from the 70s.
