WTF? Baseball's Unwritten Rules?

Well obviously I am in the minority here and it is useless to state my opinion without getting slammed. So I will bow out. I will however say this about Tatis I watched him play yesterday and he made two plays at shortstop that were plays of the week for sure. The young man certainly can play this game.

No need to bow out, just support your opinion with solid logic. 

You stated your opinion, and people explained why they disagreed with your logic. There's nothing wrong with that IMO.

Oy.

I hate that disagreeing with people is seen as "getting slammed" these days.

f***ing man up and post a counter-argument. It's a forum - you discuss shit here. When did everyone become:

  • so personally offended by disagreement
  • so pussy-fied that they can't engage in a discussion and back up their opinion(s)?

Probably forever, but man it feels like a relatively recent thing. Particularly the first.

Will only add a few things things:

Right now, personally, I'm outraged at the people being outraged at the people being outraged by people breaking unwritten rules. 😉

Seriously though, you're last point is pretty accurate.  Outside of the one pitch behind the next batter and the one soundbite from each manager right after the game, I haven't heard anybody else really bothered by it, nor any continued annoyance on the part of the Rangers.  They seemed to have let it go that evening.  So it's mostly just the backlash over the backlash since then. 🙂

Or just forget everything I said and focus on only this: I just did a quick search and counted at least 5 teams that scored 7 or more runs over the course of 2 innings in just the Fri-Sun weekend prior to that game.  Honestly, what else do you need besides that info to realize that idea that you should stop trying to score at that point is ludicrous?

I was going to mention this. The game has changed. A seven run deficit isn’t insurmountable. It’s definitely not “let’s bag it, boys,” territory.

Speaking of that game, here is a tweet that perfectly ties it to this thread:

    • The younger generation equivalent of this is probably 15 signs you watch too much golf on Instagram/TikTok, but it kind of doesn't make sense because the videos are so short.
    • Okay, I was just trying to spare us all the slideshow. But, I'll be sure to include the link in the future. 
    • So you can do what you did and add head weight to counter the grip weight. You can find lighter midsize grips, which obviously isn't always a viable option. You can also find shafts with more tip heavy balance points. You could also add a little length to the club to get that weight back. All these options have pros and cons. My personal feeling on SW is that it's mainly about getting a consistent feel through your irons and wedges. I don't care about matching woods, hybrids, putters to an iron SW. Most important for me is a smooth weight progression through the set so each club is getting heavier moving from driver to wedges. The simplest option is start out with just the new grips and no additional weight at the tip. Use whatever iron you want, and hit some balls with impact stickers, foot spray powder, dry erase marker on balls, launch monitor, etc, to look at your impact pattern. Then start adding some lead tape to the back and repeat the process. At some point you should find your consistency is at it's best and adding or taking away weight from that point is detrimental. Then just add the same amount to the rest (remembering head weight influences longer clubs more than shorter so you may want to shave a gram or two off in the longer irons vs. the shorts). Only other thing to look out for if you add weight to the clubs is how you hit them at the end of the round when you are tired compared to the start of the round. Most people can handle an 130g shaft for the first 5-10 swings, but not necessarily by the end of the round.
    • Have you ever gotten a club fitting? I also launch the ball lower than ideal and part of that is my swing, part of that was the shaft I was playing. I wonder if changing to a higher lofted driver will cause you to hit the ball with more spin and you wouldn't see any gains in distance.
