I envy your timezone during baseball playoff season!
That's cause a 95 mph fastball is hard to hit! Billingsley is hitting .98 out of every 10 at bats! That's not even one full hit!

Now in Beckett's defence his average for 2006 was .429, but it was his first year with the Red Sox and only had 7 at bats and 3 hits.



I have to know my stuff of I loose my "Official Baseball Dad!" title that dd gave me.

My ds is only two so all I have to do to impress him is say, "look it's the Red Sox!"

I have a hard time remembering numbers, so I'm in trouble when he gets older!

I'm great at remembering (most) numbers. And DD is 10 and obsessed with baseballs so "look it's the red sox" doesn't quite cut it with her. I will admit, I'm liking baseball too though. Especially after seeing games like thursdays!

Ha! That's funny! I guess having a 10 yr. old kind of raises the bar for your baseball knowledge. I do know most of the rules of the game (I have to explain the infield fly rule to dh every time it happens) and watch most of the regular season games (those west coast night games are tough!)...I guess I'm just getting ready for ds to ask, "mama, what's a balk?"

Official MLB rule book. I had to read it to qualify for my title.

Quote:
A BALK is an illegal act by the pitcher with a runner or runners on base, entitling
all runners to advance one base.

Runners also get to advance a base if a pitched ball lodges in any of the catcher's or umpires paraphenalia.

Excellent- I'm on it...I do have a few years to study, though!

FiestaBeth- are you feeling better?

Hi!
post #1316 of 2104
I didn't have the years to study. DD decided she liked baseball at the end of July and I had one week to prove I knew my stuff.

Hi Brig
post #1317 of 2104
Where'd everyone go? Will you all come back if we stop talking about baseball? (Even though the Red Sox are winning 2-1 after 3 innings?)
post #1318 of 2104
I'm still here! Sort of..
post #1319 of 2104
I have nothing to contribute re: baseball. Except the infinity thing, which I already used.
post #1320 of 2104
That's fine... Red Sox are leading 4 -2
