Random Stupidity

SDS

The announcer just exclaimed that I just broke the record for RBI's in a single season...on OPENING DAY.

SDS

That is common. I have the commentary at the end talk bout a 9 out save when the final score was like 12-2. Matt will say a team has lost 8 of their last 10 then someone else talks about how great the team has been. This kind of thing happens all the time.

Congratulations, Gnoobius! That's the singe greatest accomplishment of all time. Did the game go 1,400 innings?

I hit a 466 foot home run, and during my next AB the announcer said "He really didn't hit it a ton..."

Pitching the last 3 innings is a save no matter what the score is

A save is pitching the end of a game with the tying run in the hole when you enter the game. Do your homework before coming on here and saying things that are not true.

He's right. You get a save when meeting all four of the following:

  1. He is the finishing pitcher in a game won by his team;

  2. He is not the winning pitcher;

  3. He is credited with at least ⅓ of an inning pitched; and

  4. He satisfies one of the following conditions:

A. He enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning

B. He enters the game with the potential tying run either on base, at bat or on deck

C. He pitches for at least three innings.

He didn't even have the ninth inning definition right because if it was only "tying run in the hole", then a 3 run save in the ninth inning with no one on base and no one out isn't possible.

Man you just embarrassed yourself

Ok read the books on MLB baseball. A save is when the tying run is either at bat, on deck or in the hole. So if a ptcher comes in to start the 9th inning with a 3 run lead theoretically the the first 2 batters could get on base and the 3rd batter hit a 3 run HR henceforth tie game. So I did not embarrass myself. I will also say to Oleoay think before you type because you are dead wrong. Tojjmitch88 I say yes a 3 inning is possible if the circumstances I mentioned are in place when entering the game. What i said if you read my original thread was that a 9 out save when the score was really lopsided was not possible. To clarify what I was saying the score was lopsided from early on so there was no save. I am very knowledgeable about baseball. So all you young wise guys please put your mind in gear before putting your fingers in motion.

The original rule was pitch 3 innings, it wasn't the current rule until sometime in the 1970s,which they never got rid of so pitch 7 8 9 is still a save no matter the score.

From the horse's mouth.

Wow I never new that pitching the last three innings no matter what the score, is a save.

Learn something new everyday

Thanks for the info

Some instances of random stupidity I like is watching an outfielder make an unnecessary diving catch. Just watched one take 6 steps and dives on a out he could have walked to.

I hate to tell you but you need to stop telling people to think before they type especially instances where you are proving your own ignorance. . You are completely wrong bud, lopsided score or not if you pitch 3 innings to end the game you are credited with a save regardless of the score. I’m sure you’re knowledgeable about baseball and know a bunch of other stuff, but you don’t know the 3 inning save rule. It’s okay, we learn new things every day.
