It seems more like they should just change the name of the rule, since that seems to be what is tripping people up. Aside from the fact that it was called way late, it seems to have been called by the letter of the law, depending on whether or not you think the SS could have caught it using "ordinary effort".benb18a wrote:Wow. BRB, gonna advise Roenicke to put his SS into the shallow outfield so that any error made in left or center field is considered an out.
Either that, or the MLB needs to revise this rule. I'm sorry, but if a ball is deep enough where it lands about 3/4 of the distance between third base and the left fielder...it is NOT an INFIELD play. This is the most asinine display of a ridiculous and retarded rule I have seen in sports since the Calvin Johnson TD robbery against the Bears. At some point common sense needs to be worked into the equation. I mean there are some warning track popups that hang so long it could be considered an infield fly, based on this completely stupid rule.
