Charlie and Dave said that that is usually not a swing, but that interpretation of a check swing always varies from one ump to another.

I'm not sure if you guys are joking or what, but we've definitely seen Riggleman more angry than that before.

Crunch time.   I'm going to walk the dog.   In the past, this hasn't always worked out real well but I have confidence in this group.

Oh yeah, one game last year he laid into, of all people, Joe West.  Pretty awesome.

There's no rule about a checked swing. It comes down to whether the guy attempted to hit the ball, not how far he goes. That was close, but he did check up in a way that indicated he was backing off from it. We've been screwed on much more obvious attempts than that. These umps need to call that both ways.

They should have a fault line, like in bowling.
