Why would you send a slow as crap player who is limping. I know you have the pitcher coming up but the pitcher has a bat in his hand and has hit the ball OK for pitcher lately. He was thrown out by 10 feet.

I know he's slow but I thought he would score easily. The ball was over his head and bounced around with 2 outs! At the very least we needed to get Strasburg out of the way. :hang:

Wasn't Smith blocking the plate? Had his left cleat right in front of the plate before the ball got there. The throw did not force him to move. He was already standing there

Even if the pitcher gets out and Adams doesn’t score, you’ve at least turned over the lineup. Now the pitcher leads off the next inning further compounding the error b

Please explain. What constitutes blocking the plate?

It's like the tuck rule. My point is that he was out and we shouldn't resort to asking for charity runs.

So Henley doesn’t take into account who’s running when he makes a decision on whether to send someone? Explains a lot.

He was clearly blocking the road late by the rules. He’s supposed to be clear of the plate to take the throw. Adams was out by so much though they probably decided he did not deserve to be safe.

TBS announcers said it was a good send. Ron Darling. Because two outs.

So basically, the argument FP is making is that Henley should send Adams because of the low odds of Stras getting a hit. That argument only makes sense if there is a reasonable chance of scoring. You would have to be blind to think that Adams was going to score there unless the Dodgers defense failed to make routine throws. We actually know the odds of Stras getting a hit based upon his stats. It may not be high, but it seems higher than the chances of Adams scoring. That is one reason that send is stupid. The other reason is that if you can pretty much bet that you are giving up the third out at home, you may as well let the pitcher bat to turn the lineup over. If he wants to talk about low odds of the pitcher getting a hit, he should factor in the low odds of scoring when he leads off the next inning.

My point is that the rule is complicated and really I wasn't so much talking about this one play.
