to my eye, that was off the back of the hand and then the bat.  But those are my eyes and not the ump's.

Yeah, upon further review I think Bob and FP were correct, it first glanced off the back of his hand, before hitting the bat.

It may have hit the hand as well, but the ball path changed as it hit is bicep.

One thing is sure, it didn't hit the bat.

It sounded like it hit the bat too  :shrug:

It hit his bicep.

I thought it hit around the lower wrist/upper forearm area where he's wearing that black band

Nevertheless, that's another borderline call against us by this lousy turd of an ump

Pitcher can't lay down a sac bunt. #3 hitter can't score a runner from third with 1 out. #4 hitter can't make contact with bases loaded.

Not going to win like this.

yup.  i take exception to the called 3rd strike to zimmerman though.  jordan zimmermann's first "walk" of the game came on a strikeout pitch that looked just like that.  of course the ump called it a ball.

the ball hit him.  it's not even close.

That's his job.  The ump could have asked for help.

This.

I don't understand why homeplate umps hog calls like that.

Other things that annoy me are when umpires don't confer on whether batted balls hit the batters (resulting in foul ball) and whether go around on check swings. Home plate umpires don't have great angles for those calls and some are way too liberal making the calls themselves.

i was just saying i was fuming about that non-strike call.  it could be 2-0. 

but then again our bats are freakin not clutch.  blame the player and blame the hitting coach who helps them in these type situations.

I thought it was clear it did not hit the bat on the X-Mo replay. I watched it a bunch of times.

Yeah on the replay I couldn't really see it hitting anything, but the sound sure sounded like it hit the bat to me.

freak the Nats. For any other team this is an easy win.

The Diamondbacks' lineup looks as bad as any I've seen in a long while. SF Giants-esque

ian kennedy has given up 18 homers this season, which is more than any of our starters.  need to start going deep.
