    I thought he got him before he hooked his foot around to the plate....and we are watching the same game....that's why the guy in blue standing right there has the only opinion that really matters

    Blocking the plate without the ball should be illegal. Probably is against the rules technically, but the catcher argues he's just trying to catch the ball so it's allowed.

    But if the intent is to prevent the runner from scoring without the ball in catcher's hands, it should not be allowed.

    The Astros may suck, but they look pretty good while sucking. Love their new uniforms.

    Hannahan Ks, thereby reducing the Reds RISP hitting percentage.

    Let's see if Izturis can get it home. Yup.

    That'd be way too revolutionary for MLB to even consider. Blocking w/o the ball has been the norm for...I don't know...maybe 200 years? So can't change that. Same as using replay for balls/strikes.

    I'm not sure it's been the norm throughout baseball history. It's the norm now, for sure.

    Just seems ridiculous to me to let a player without the ball simply block the plate.

    What if on a single to right field, Votto simply sat on first base and didn't let the baserunner have any access to the bag.

    Whole thing is absurd.

    I was under the impression that we were on a Reds discussion forum where everybody's opinion matters?

    The catcher was blocking the plate causing BP's left leg/ foot to be blocked during the ugly slide. BP appeared to then touch the plate by slipping his right foot in to touch the plate just before the tag.

    Pirates lost. Cards way ahead. Nats swept the Braves.

    I'm not 100% sure but I think it was the norm from the earliest days. From when baseball was more like football with tackles and plenty of fisticuffs.*

    You know...after all the drama in games most of the season, a game like this seems almost boring--not that I mind it.

    even against the Astros I'd have never thought it the way he looked the first couple innings - nice job so far!
