I like that Molina is jumping around behind the plate... it shows an understanding of the game beyond his years.
With a runner on second, the baserunner could easily tip the pitch location to the batter by doing a number of things based on where Molina sets up. i.e. making a subtle fist (leaving his hand at his side, or wherever he has his hand while leading off) with one hand or the other to signify inside, outside, or raise a foot a few inches in the air higher than the other while taking his lead off second base. The ways to very clearly tip pitch location while leading off second are almost limitless. Turn a foot outside or inside..... Open your mouth, close your mouth. Say something ("Come on so and so") or not say something. Touch your helmet with your right hand if it is inside, left hand if it is outside, etc. All of these would be virtually undetectable for the defense to call you out on. This has been going on since, well, since the first runner got to second base in the first game I suppose.
With Molina setting up outside, and then jumping back inside at the last possible moment, the tipping of the pitch location gets tougher to pull off.
As long as the pitcher is not bothered by it, I would like him to do it anytime a runner is on second. I would imagine that Molina saw something to make him think the Phillies were trying to tip the pitch location, and he took action. Good for him!!!
On a more alarming note..... what's with Hersheiser calling out Encarnacion's inability to hit a fastball? He kept saying he was having trouble catching up with anything over 91 MPH or so, and he should not be pitched any off speed pitches, etc. Can the guy really not hit a fastball all that well?
Game three starting in about 30 minutes.... Darn you Fox Sports Midwest Blackout!!! (I live closer to Cincy that to STL, so I get blacked out a lot, but will be able to watch "Poker with the Pros" or some other crap on Fox Sports Ohio without any blackout at all!!!!)
