    That's literally all the rulebook says on the matter. Nothing on crossing the plate. Nothing on "breaking the wrist". Nothing on coming across the front hip.

    Don't move the bat off your shoulder if you don't want risk having a strike called. **shrug**
    Counter point: it was Angel Hernandez. So the call is automatically presumed wrong.

      Just fire him.

      let him sue and when he wins pay the settlement and reinstate.
      then fire again.

      wash, rinse, repeat.

        As a White Sox fan (yes, I know that in the seventh inning of last nights 10-1 loss to the Royals my team was mathematically eliminated from post season play) I know there are two Jason Benetti's. There's the Jason Benetti who does tons of ESPN pro and college football, pro and college basketball and for these games he is a fantastic, world class broadcaster. Then there was the Sox Jason Benetti. Good lord, you're telling me this is the same guy? You're making me listen to this crap at the same time you're making me watch this crap on the field? *** Jerry? Why couldn't we have ESPN Jason do the flippin' Sox games? I was not sad to see him leave for Detroit.

            I get what the rule says, but I don’t think any reasonable person looks at that and says he’s making an attempt on the ball.

              Yet they filed for trademarks for the Sacramento Athletics. To keep a trademark you have to actually use it, so there will be some Sac A’s stuff, unless they’re there such a short period of time they can get by without having to use it.

                Fire him. If the umps want to go to bat for him, robo ump the strike zone and find scabs* with video review for the rest

                *probably the only time I'll advocate for busting a union: if they try to protect angel hernandez, the worst ump maybe ever, that's my line.

                edit: he makes the product worse and negatively affects the outcomes of games. It would be like a math teacher telling kids 1+1=blue. Just fire his ***. For cause.

                  He made an attempt to swing. Then, realizing it's coming at him, tenses up and turns the entire upper body while throwing the brakes on his swing.

                    I'm surprised the Blue Jays were allowed to have one giant LED ad board behind the plate with the renovation. Seems like you'd at least want a patch of wall behind the plate as a reverse batter's eye for fielders.

                      the game tonight was fun.

                      long…. But certainly interesting

                      they had a kid throw out the first pitch. Younger boy. He went to the rubber and threw it. This was a home swallows game and a giant got in the box and swung at it (the kid tossed a strike. Nice touch.

                      the chanting was consistent and cool.

                      there were cheerleaders.. a nice surprise for mookie.

                      no ball stays in for more than one batter unless it’s a K. They toss them to the ballboy outside the dugouts, who bow Japanese style to say thanks

                      beer girls walk the stands with a keg on their back, pouring drafts. They serve through game end. And they have cute outfits with skirts and knee high socks.

                      Mookie reads the stadium is from 1926, all one deck like Fenway.

                      they have dominos pizza as a concession. That’s not cool. Hot dogs on a stick. Cone of fries. Saw but didn’t order anything.
