Week 1 Picks Recap

Lots to post today... hopefully I'll be able to get to the recap on the night.  Here are the picks results:

Frank, Justin and Jim (Shockers) all missed 3 games.  Nate, Maria, Bull and Angie all missed 1 game.  Jim couldn't make the bar last night so be sure to collect from him next week.

There were a few upsets last night, so I think next weeks games are going to be quite difficult to select.

As I slowly chip away on the recap and announcements... please leave feedback on any issues you had.

Stop winning and you'll have less to celebrate...

Anyone else really think we need to give the refs some assistance? Our guy missed several calls each way, and wasn't even really clear on what to call the play when a runner is hit with the ball. Maybe he should be at first anyway, where most of the controversial calls will occur, particularly with the way they do balls and strikes.

Nate Dawg said...

Ref assistance, definitely. Talked to Chan about this last night and he talked to Johnny about it I believe so hopefully next week we will have some volunteer refs on 1st & 3rd base...I think the ref would be best suited in the middle of the field next to the pitcher like how KBS does it.

I was a little drunk and probably a bit hard on our ref, but he was kind of horrible. He was reffing up the first base line, not behind home plate, and couldnt see shit. He missed two calls for kicks going up the third base line. There were also two occasions when the other team left second base really early, and had like 3 to 4 steps before the ball got there. I do think we need to have 1 player from each team ref the lines.

Frank you were drinking last night? Had no idea...

FRANK said...

id almost rather just do our own refs all together. I do like the no-1 base on over throw rule. You can just keep running. Our game got cut short also.

We were up two runs with 10 min left in the top of the inning, we were home. They guy said it would be the last inning, they got out in 4 minutes leaving 6 minutes left. We werent allowed to kick. We could have gotten out in 4 minutes, leaving another inning to play.. Idk, just wanted to get my monies and times worth.

FRANK said...

I kind of liked having our peers ref.. Im not such a dick to them when they miss calls.. With an outsider, who is paid makes a bad call, +alcohol, leads to me probably getting kicked out of a game.

Chandler said...

Frank... Playing Rule #45 states:

If the ball is thrown or kicked by the defense out of the field of play, each base runner is granted one additional base. If any player on the offensive side knocks the ball away from the defense on purpose, the runner will be out and no one is allowed to advance further on the bases. The referee determines when the ball is considered out of play.

So I'm not sure what was called in your game but you can not just keep running.

FRANK said...

well deputy dewey said we could keep running..

FRANK said...

we actually just stopped at the next base, cuz we thought that was the rule, then the guy was like, you dont have to stop.

Chandler said...

Awesome. I'll add it to "the list."

Nate Dawg said...

Nice Frank. Did he let you guys lead off too? And let guys bunt? I like impartial refs myself and one's that are actually paying attention to the game.
