Fan got kicked out of the Rays game for interfering with a ball that replay showed would have been a home run. And they kicked him out after the replay. And Tropicana is barely half full. The Rays stadium people are not smart. Old man should've been able to stay.

The illegal slide into second helped the Nats win today. The runner at first got called out after being called safe.

Good call though, by the rules.

.

He did slide before the bag and then slide over it as he was attempting to keep his hand on the bag.

Most players will not agree with the call. There's going to be a lot of controversy over this rule throughout the season.

from ESPN:

 

Joe Girardi is playing Tuesday's game between the Yankees and Astros under protest. Girardi had a fit over the go-ahead run coming across in the eighth inning when reliever Dellin Betances shot putted a ball over first baseman Mark Teixeira's head on an infield single from Carlos Correa. Girardi argued that Correa was inside the baseline and should've been called out. The play is not reviewable. Correa was on the infield grass as he went up the line, but -- even after conferring with his fellow umpires -- Dana DeMuth refused to change his mind. The Astros are leading the Yankees, 3-2, in the eighth.

 

 

edit: 5-2 now, Astros in the 8th.

Doggies won big last night, Harper homered, Texas and Houston both won their first game - all this in addition to the Angels getting beaten like a rented mule last night. Wonderful start to the season :/

At least the Yankees lost, though Girardi played the game under protest.

 

Has anyone ever won any of those protests?

Yes, the most infamous game ever was played under protest and won, the pine tar game.

I can't remember it ever happening.

Good call, Strad.

Chen is a disaster, just gave up an 88 mph home run to Ian Kinsler. 4-0 Detroit after 2 innings.

Or he could be David Freese and miss a quarter of the season and play just league average when he isn't booting ground balls.

2+ war is league average?

Know you guys don't care but Iannetta (who threw many swears) was just intentionally beaned by former Mariner pitcher Tom Wilhelmsen (Ejected) who is now a Ranger .... benches briefly cleared as the M's have destroyed the Rangers in the 8th.
