Video in article doesn’t show any replays. A replay did show he was tagged on the arm. Article doesn’t even mention who wound up winning the game (the Pirates did in 13).
I don’t understand this site. Deadspin has, for years, disparaged the “human element” justification of umpires who arbitrarily call balls and strikes — with no review and with the penalty of ejection for anyone who challenges such a call. Now here we have a ruling, assisted by all the technology available to a Major…
He was out, how is that bullshit? The system worked.
Oh, the horror, they made the correct call.
I saw it on the MLB.tv app and Burner#29 is right, it did look like the tag was made and, while it was a torturous wait, I think they ended up making the right call.
There was no question whether the tag was placed before the plate, that view just isn’t shown because Lauren didn’t put any replays in this clip (presumably because they completely discredit her “indisputable” assertion). The only difficult thing to see was whether he actually made contact with the tag. If you look…
Full video with replays here. He looked out to me. https://www.mlb.com/news/replay-overturns-tigers-potential-winning-run/c-270168204
Alex Garland’s new tech-mystery show is officially happening. Mark Ruffalo teases how Bruce Banner will handle Thanos’ arrival. An HBO executive drops a hint that Game of Thrones’ final episode could be a bit of a bloodbath. Plus, new looks at what’s in store for The Flash and iZombie, and a creepy The X-Files clip.…
Exactly, if one of these men used the podium to speechify, the article would be: “Note to Hollywood Men, for just 3 hours on one night, it was your time to shut up and listen, but you couldn’t do it”.
Look, there’s a lot to hate on with the Ball family, but I would do the same thing in this situation. It’s really dumb to get into a fight during any sports competition. People who do get into fights like this are idiots and Lonzo is right to think it’s fucking stupid.
I got the sense it was about how some parenting frustrations are insignificant, because you love your kids and them doing something that brings them joy makes those little frustrations worth it. I found it really touching. Another title for this could be “My Son is Ruining Zelda (But That Doesn’t Matter Because I Love…
Look at how this question was setup:
This may be true for YOU and YOUR political views, but there are plenty of people out there who aren’t on the fringes of politics and prefer a more centrist, moderate approach. There is nothing wrong with wanting, say, pro-choice rights for women, marriage equality, AND lower taxes and smaller government.
Slave owners felt superior to black people because of their skin color. There are countless examples of evidence to support that, of course. That’s the racist part, and in fact the very definition of racism.
But it is not, in fact, tearable
This. I am beyond done with the moping and pissing and whining. People didn’t wallow in misery like this after fucking 9/11, for shit’s sake.
Depends on who you voted for. I voted Hillary and actually enjoyed this article, even if it’s not satirical. It’s a good balance to this site and all of the other Post-Gawker sites.
It’s not just because she’s anonymous. It’s because she’s anonymous and she’s got shady people pushing her case. If an anonymous accuser with a legit attorney in this sort of field (her current lawyer is some random patent guy) who hadn’t first tried to shop the story to tabloids and didn’t have a former Jerry…
Think the dodge roll, a video game avoidance maneuver popularized by everything from Dark Souls to Legend of Zelda, is the height of armed combat, a stroke of tactical genius? This swordsman says you're very, very wrong.
No it's not a crime, but its certainly not going to help your situation out. The infraction, however minor, has been committed iregardless of your actions after the fact. Rude and sarcastic is not a crime, but you're drawing attention and giving them reason to find more. Think of it as a bartender. It's their job to…
