    if a ball hits the very top lip of a vertical service it can certainly pop straight up like it did. Not sure what everyone is seeing in the replay. It hit the red line which goes to the very top of the wall..no replay showed the ball going past the red line and onto the horizontal area.

    Yeah, I mean I’m no physicist but I can’t imagine any way a ball can bounce straight up if it didn’t touch at least some part of the face of the wall, which is not an HR unless it then bounds over, which it clearly did not.

    Seems like an obvious call to me.

    Then this is a case of bad laws making hard cases. If the red line literally goes right to the corner where horizontal and vertical surfaces meet, then that's essentially the same as not having a line -- because a line can only effectively demarcate a border between areas in a single plane. I was assuming that the line was entirely contained within the vertical surface -- so that the lip itself was above the line. If that's not the case, then we're just talking about dumbass design.

    Was wondering the same thing. He pitched with the big club early in the season but was in the minors (iirc) for a few months prior to September 1.

    I’ve had that very thought. The line is just not necessary. I think it was put there to help umpires visually distinguish the wall from the shelf, but replay makes that not necessary anymore. But it does go to the very edge up there.

    Here is a thought. If facing knckle baller screws up the timing of the opposing hitters, shouldn't we be using Wright as the opener in every game?

    On second thought no, although they might bat around which could be end up screwing up the whole lineup.

    If the knuckler is fouled off that often, it is a good indicator it isn’t really dancing. Yet.

    Wright’s been pretty good this year so i’m reluctant to write (hah) him off entirely. But this outing is certainly not helping his case.

    That is so cool. Slomo on the knuckler, it’s rotating nada until the foul tip and then you see the ball’s orientation change.

    A bit of a high wire act by Wright, but once again he comes through.
