Default *Official* 9/22 Defense Lets Giolito Down

Well that LaMarre misplay set a bad tone for today. Could have used some better defense in the 9th as well.


Not really much of a **** show as far as the crowd was concerned. The only buffoonery I saw was a beer thrown in the general direction of a foul ball in the 9th. 4-5 sections down from me, so I couldn't discern the fandom of the perp.


I thought Giolito pitched well enough to win, but needed better defense behind him.

Usually I would prefer man over machine but since MLB cannot get umpires to enforce the rules on the books automate away.

I thought the call at second by Joe West was a BS call. New York fumbling it made the process an exercise in subjectivity.

That said, our White Sox had runners on in the seventh and eight only to see them die on the vine.

I hope the White Sox come out today and take two out of three.

Watching that play on my own, I thought the call at 2nd was awful. Baez stuck his hand out to grab Anderson’s leg. Doesn’t matter that he missed. Anderson had to adjust his position and that seemed to affect the throw. Hawk was correct though, the rules have changed to the point that it’s almost silly we’re even talking about this.

Have the rules changed or has the attitude towards enforcing the rules changed?

No, you're correct. Enforcement has changed. And not to misquote him, he said it has become a "different game".

This is Joe West, of course. It's too bad the great baseball writer Roger Angell is semi-retired. I would pay a premium price to read an in-depth essay on Joe West's checkered career as an umpire.

When automated calls are finally put in place, references to imperious toads like West will be shown as the reason the machines became necessary.
