Guerrero hit into fielders choice? no he didnt?

Postby Melo255 » Wed May 12, 2004 7:25 pm

With a man on first Vlad hit a fly that landed in front of the Sheff the right fielder-the man on first misread the ball and was forced out at second. So why the hell did Guerrero not get credit for a hit? I imagine there's some kind of asinine rule to blame for this but does anyone know what it is? I mean wtf he got a hit the man on first made a mistake so he gets blamed for it? Please please explain.

it sounds like it should be a hit to me. Yeah there was a force out at second but the runner should have been there. Vlad scored a run so that made up for the hit I guess.

Agreed. I think it was just a bad call by the official scorer unless there is some obscure rule I'm not aware of.

Normally that would be the case but since my league decided not to count runs as a category all it did was hurt me.

There's a possibility that could be changed later on tonight then, unless, like you said, its a rule that we are not aware of. I hope it does get overturned, the run was nice, but a hit on top of it would be even nicer.

it is the correct scoring decision.
it was a 9-6 force out. therefore guerrero grounded out to right field.

Yep, no hit. Someone could rip it off the Green Monster at Fenway and if the runner on first gets thrown out at second, it's just a fielder's choice.

Definitely not a hit because it was a force out. If he had reached 2nd and rounded too far then you would have a hit.

Too bad it's not a hit. The way Melo was bitching about it, I think him not getting a hit right there cost him the fantasy baseball world series title. Better luck next year Melo.

Very funny. Usefull info.
To everyone else, thanks for the replies I still think it's a moronic rule since the mistake was not his and the only person who statistically is hurt by the play is him. It wouldn't have bothered me all that much except the next friggin pitch was hit out and I also have Vazquez starting so it turned out to be a complete bust of an inning.
