It'd be nice to have a synced up view to show where he was when the ball went over, but at the very least he looked to be at least halfway between 2nd and 3rd already by the time the ball had landed, at which point I think he should be given 2 bases from where he was when it went out, which would be scoring.  Had he not passed second when it went over, I'd be ok with putting him at 3rd, because you can't assume he'd have scored from there.

Yeah that view isn't great. But he was definitely very near third.

 

Rays have just been eliminated.

I am sorry for your loss. 😞

It always seems like teams that have really long winning streaks always come up lame in the playoffs. The A's lost in the 1st round after winning 20. Indians after 23 wins (and as defending AL Champs) in 2017 and now the Cardinals.

You can all anything you want a decade technically.  Any 10 year consecutive period is a decade.

This is true. Technically the word century works the same way, but if you are going to term it the "21st Century", which is how most people consider it, then it starts in 2001.

During the regular season, absolutely.

 

This, however, happened on a national stage. The rule changes occur under two circumstances.

1. National Stage

2. High-Profile Player / Team

 

My examples, and I'll admit some "apples to oranges" stuff here. First for #2:

No more home plate collisions. Buster Posey getting injured was the catalyst for this. Catchers got trucked for years, got hurt, and said "it's part of the game." Nowadays, young, high-profile star on a team that just won the World Series gets hurt? "We better change the rule." Brett Hayes got absolutely hammered in September of 2010 (ya know, the reason we went after Nyjer Morgan!). Nobody cared. "Part of the game."

To be fair they did quickly make changes to the catcher collision rule when it went against the mediocre Marlins in 2014 during a regular season game against the Reds.

They did.

Because a young, high-profile player (Stanton) was involved. His perfect throw got negated.

We could see three eliminations today.

Or three teams surviving for a fifth game.

Or two eliminations.

Or one elimination.

Or two games played and a rainout.

 

We could get any of these things today!  lol

What happened to Yelich? He is barely better than league average now. While I firmly believe that we lost that trade badly, would still having Yelich even elevate the Marlins to where they need to be?

Back and leg injuries from carrying that team.

How many of those injuries are because he is trying to hit more homers? Perhaps he is overexerting himself to improve his numbers. Was it ever sustainable to begin with?

You said the year 2000 is part of the previous century so by your same logic the year 1990 is part of the 80's. 

Again, why would 1990 be part of the year 89?

 

there is nearly 2000 years difference in those periods!
