        • seriously, I think it was because they felt Smoak has substantially more upside. whether or not that is true is not important.

          • Montero has A LOT more upside than Smoak, he just doesn't have a definitive position and has a much lower floor.

                    Balkgarner you mean?

                    That's two TERRIBLE calls already. I mean our offense is terrible enough on their own we could at least get decent umpiring...

                    • I still have absolutely no idea what constitutes a balk.

                        hahaha, i was a left-handed pitcher so I am pretty well-versed on the matter. He can't bring his front (right) leg back behind his left plant leg. There is also a 45 degree line that if he is on the side closer to the plate he HAS to go home. the third thing that tells me its a balk is that his entire body and, in particular, his shoulder opened up towards home. He had the trifecta of signs that its a balk and both the first base umpire and the home plate umpire missed it. Ridiculous.

                          Umpires still don't explicitly follow those rules for calling a balk, which is what creates my confusion. As someone who watches soooooooo much baseball, it's annoying.

                          • can't argue with you there. I find myself yelling BALK BALK once a game typically and it never gets called...

                                You're awesome too!
                                The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.
