I'm a name.com (and linode) customer and haven't received jack from them.
They're being a bit slow about it. Just received my email.
So instead of being on first, he should have gotten second then I guess by reading that. Thanks for the clarification.
Based on the latest update, this is very accurate. http://espn.go.com/mlb/blog/_/name/stark_jayson/id/9196879/new-twist-milwaukee-brewers-shortstop-jean-segura-baserunning-madness Rule 7.01 (see above for link) states that
Rule 7.01 Comment: If a runner legally acquires title to a base, and the pitcher assumes his pitching position, the runner may not return to a previously occupied base.
Which the update article states should be interpreted as: Segura shouldn't have been allowed to go back to first, specifically because Segura was on second when the play started. Therefore, at the end of the play, Segura isn't entitled to first base.
One could also argue that the comments about Segura being out of the baseline are accurate, given that he shouldn't have been allowed to go back to first.
This all assumes that the new article has the correct rules interpretation. MLB hasn't stated their official position yet.
It was stupid officiating by the umpires why would somebody assume that the score keepers or software would need to account for this? They should have correctly called them both out because they were both tagged presumably.
Both were tagged when both were standing on second at the same time. By rule (7.03), the trailing runner is out.
The way a baseball infield is designed , the home team dugout is aligned on the right side of the field with first and second base, the visiting team is aligned on the left side of the field with second and third base.
In MLB, there is no requirement for home vs away dugouts. The Brewers' home dugout is by first base. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dugout_(baseball)#Teams_and_ballparks_with_home_dugouts_on_the_first_base_side
T-mobile is horrible because the minutes expire after a year and it costs roughly 20 cents/min.
This is mostly incorrect. I am currently on my second smartphone on a T-mobile pay-as-you-go plan. I buy minutes $100 at a time, making them $0.10 a minute. Text messages also $0.10 (picture messages $0.25). Once you've spent $100, minutes expire after 1 year. However, if you buy more minutes, that restarts the 1 year timeline on all of your minutes. Right now, my pay-as-you-go plan costs me about $10 a month.
The reason T-mobile might be a terrible option: Coverage. I don't have a problem, but some of my coworkers live in more rural areas and have tried T-mobile and not been happy.
There are 2 big "unifying" stats, WAR (wins above replacement) and WPA (win probability added).
WAR treats every at bat the same (and base-running and fielding). Trout had a higher WAR than Cabrera, and the highest in MLB.
WPA treats every at bat based on how it alters your team's chance of winning. Trout had a higher WPA than Cabrera, and the highest in the AL (not sure about MLB).
