Nap's foot was blocking the plate, but Upton's foot touched home plate before Napoli reached around and tagged him. Just b/c Nap's foot was touching Upton doesn't mean he was out.

He was clearly safe.

They replayed it ten times in slo mo on the rangers broadcast. They even freeze framed it. He was out.

It's not like it matters much though

Aside from today the Marlins starting pitching has been pretty damn good. ERA less than 2 on their last road trip, but no wins to show for it. Just goes to see how terrible their hitting has been. Getting shut out again in the 9th. Perez was hired as the hitting coach last season (which many players didn't want Mallee gone) and now Reyes, Stanton, and Hanley have been looking grim at the plate. Of course its not all on Perez, but this lineup should not be this bad.

I can't believe Stanton hasn't gone yard yet.

He's always been a slow starter in terms of HR. I think it took him 9 games his first year and 14 games last year, but considering expectations and how bad he's looked at the plate this is a lot more concerning. He didn't play much in the spring, but by now he should have found his stroke already. He needs change his name back, that should do the trick

Apparently the Angels released Bobby Abreu.

Joe Saunders has been unbelievable for the D-Backs this year, this is a guy who they weren't even going to bring back yet he's been dominant, 0.90 ERA through his first 4 starts and threw a complete game 3 hit shutout today.

And call up Mike Trout. Hopefully Trout slowly begins taking at bats away from Vernon Wells.

This game could get real interesting real fast. The rangers just refuse to have a true blowout loss. Napoli gonna bat with 2 on nobody out in the 8th, rays up 8-4

Edit and he struck out

I'm curious has anyone ever tried to run over a pitcher when they have to cover the plate? Inexcuseably bad base running by nelly Cruz there

That was the most intense AB I've ever seen in a regular season game this early in the season.

12-pitch AB after Wade Davis started him off with 3 straight balls.

And my heart stopped when Andrus crushed that down the right field line. I thought the game was tied. I was

Pretty epic AB there.


Praying for a split these next two games. I can see the Rays not scoring a single run these next two games though....

I was following the game on my phone and saw it was 2-1 in the 7th. Got caught up in what I was doing and didn't check it again for awhile and saw we won 6-1.

Also got to see the fourth part of what makes the Atlanta bullpen so good. Aside from the O'Vembrel trio (O'Flaherty, Venters, Kimbrel) we've also got a really good long-relief guy in Kris Medlen who is still fairly young and will be a really solid #3 or #4 starter for us or someone else one day.
