Watching that play unfold I said 'Villar is going to drop it.'

Hopefully no factor . ..

There is no way you can give him a hit for that play. Yeah it was tricky with the wind but you should make that 90% of the time.

I think I should probably bench Arrieta on one of my fantasy teams tomorrow... He's been crap lately anyway...


I'm starting him. If he destroys the Brewers and I sat him I would be pissy all weekend. This way it is a win either way.

Brewer fans will say this because it is Villar.

I would agree with that no matter who it was. I have no idea how you can get to a pop up, have it bounce right off your glove, and have that recorded as a 'hit. Seems ridiculous. Super easy play in the weather, no, but yeah, it's a 90% play.

If that's a 'hit' you better go back and give Villar a hit in the 6th instead of the first error on Schwarber.

I'm actually glad they didnt being Wily back out for the 9th. I think it affirms their commitment to him as an important reliever. He's going to be pitching high stress, high leverage innings. He isn't a long man that you leave out there for 3 innings and then shut down for a couple days.

Agreed, and after what had to be a huge ego blow being pulled from the rotation, let him leave on a good - or more accurately, dominant - note. Let him get comfortable from the start in what hopefully be an important role going forward.

Could tell in the dugout after he was pinch hit for he was feeling real good and his teammates were all happy for him. Fun to see.

Took video of the play because explaining it with just words doesn't do it justice.

I have defended Villar more than most, so no it isn't because it is Villar. I hate errors, they should just be removed from the game. The error calls are so inconsistent that the stat just has no meaning. The other day I saw an OF fielding a routine ball(I think it was Pence), he slipped and fell right before the ball got to him and the ball bounced past him. He was slightly injured so it took him a bit to stand up and chase it down and the CF didn't come help for some reason. End of the play was an inside the park HR. That either has to be an error somewhere or you just don't call anything an error.

Was listening to game on MLB at Bat and suddenly cut out! What's going on. MLB used to be best internet sport (except for stupid blackouts), now just cut out audio with no warning! Stinks.


I have a couple questions about this post:

1) Do you normally expect a warning when a technical problem occurs?

2) You say MLB "used to be" the best, so is it now not the best simply because of one technical problem?
