Strasburg vs Heyward...

8-o

:-L


this would be the coolest scenario ever..


No. The coolest scenario ever would be if Strasburg faced Heyward in each player's first major league experience. Strasburg strikes Heyward out on three pitches, but the catcher drops strike #3 and Heyward races around the bags for an inside-the-park HR.

THAT would be the coolest scenario ever.

Once again, Knapp, you've shown that you know nothing about baseball. That'd be a K and a four-base error, not a HR. Maybe you should go here and read around a bit before coming back.

Actually if you are gonna correct someone make sure you are correct, a passed ball is not an error.

He'll be up when the feel of the new season wears off and they need to boost attendance. I say he gets 4 or 5 starts in the minors.

After seeing the Lincecum situation i'd be shocked if they called him up before they're sure he's beyond super 2 status.

was saying it would be an error in the general sense, not the statistical sense. If you're going to correct someone, make sure you know the context with which they are using words.

sorry this is the interweb, words speak, I cant understand whether you are speaking in general context or not, I can only go by the sentence you put. Which was a 4 base error, which is not a term I have ever heard in the general sense, yet it is possible in the statistical sense.
