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:

    • Day 347 Did rehearsal backswing practice in patio door mirror. Then did some tempo drills with 7-iron hitting balls at about what felt like 75% speed. 
    • Day 2 Week 5 Worked on 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 irons. Focus on that 3/4 swing and correct grip.  Finished up the session with my Driver 
    • I play local sports podcasts on a Bluetooth speaker in my cart, but only when playing by myself (which I usually do) or with my family for whom I know it doesn’t bother.
    • Weird Science, bogey. This movie is just dumb, and only nostalgia keeps this from being a double or worse. Additionally, the fact that it's like 80 minutes helps. At least it's over quickly.
    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
