That kind of stuff drives me up a wall. You wonder if they even pay attention.

Oh I remember a few years ago being absolutely livid with someone. Can't remember who, but the pitcher walked a pair on 8 straight pitches (yes, 8 straight out of the zone), and then after a visit to the mound by the catcher and pitching coach, whoever batted next swung at the first pitch and hit into a double play.

 

When I played optimist and in an adult league in 2009/2010, if the pitcher walked the guy in front of me on 4 or 5 pitches, I was taking the first pitch (which I usually did, anyways, as I was lead-off). Hate it when people don't just, THINK sometimes.

 

Like yesterday, Garrett Jones was the reason we went down 4 instead of down 3 when the Mets took a 5-1 lead [in my opinion]. He makes a sliding catch on a generally routine play (for a good first baseman, anyways), and ends up getting the out at first rather than second. Of course that runner who reached second ended up scoring!

 

Our infield defense is so shitty this year. :(

I am inclined to say that was Greg Dobbs but cannot be certain. We have been better at taking pitches but in my opinion, if you are behind in the count, you have the green light. But if its 1-0, 2-0, 3-0, no green light. Make the pitcher throw a strike!!

 

1-1, 2-1, 3-1.....swing away. But clearly they dont listen to me. Twice today Yelich swung at 2-0 pitches out of the zone.
