    Yeah, and Jeff Weaver finally turned decent when used in a decent park. Meanwhile, Kevin ... he gave up a longball to Johnny Damon, but nobody in their right mind would take him off our hand.

    Welcome to the world of pressure leading to over-aggressiveness, leading to swinging at a pitch neck-high. Something the world of stats can't show us That was for you UBI.

    ps. He tagged up.

    The difference between the runner "tagging up" and the runner "leaving early" was way too small for it to be clear either way, even slowed down frame by frame. Even if replay was available it would be inconclusive. The call would have stood. The guy was out.

    Which inning? Looking or swinging? How many men on, how many outs?

    Mattingly: So that controversial out at home ended the inning?

    "Dude, that guy tagged up."

    The Ghost of Fernando Valenzuela will come back to haunt you for that one!

    Fernando Mania still lives!

    I agree that, yes, the runner was clearly on the base when Randy Winn caught the fly ball in the top of the eighth. What is the chance of error on the part of the video controller, though? I mean, I think it would be pretty easy to accidentally put the video from one camera a split-second behind the video from the other camera, hence it looking like the umps got it wrong when they very well could have been right. Just a thought.
    I think that these days, the alignment of those shots is all handled by computer in the video control room, so absent a programming error, the likelihood of that is basically nil.

    Do you think Japanese players in general are more well rounded? More fundamentals, hustle, respect for the game, less ego, etc?

    ps. not a loaded or angled question, just wondering your opinion.
    yes, thats exactly what I was thinking actually. They didnt even take the field after the 8th inning until Sadaharu Oh told them to

    they seem to play small ball better than we do too, we live and die off home runs it seems

    Thanks Mattingly. It would be nice to tune in to a game from one of these countries and see future MLers.

    Visit the International forum. Japan, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Korea, Venezuela all have pro leagues.

    At least full-time leagues, since I'm not sure how the Cuban players would be defined as, per the politics over there.
