    I know Dusty had a habit of not putting someone in the lineup for a day or two after coming off the DL. He also never seemed to want to play anyone who was just called up.

    Price would do the same.

    I don't remember enough about Pete Mackanin to say.

    Jim Day put too much time and enthusiasm into this Suarez vs Suarez matchup.

    A fielder can misplay a ball so badly that the official scorer cannot charge an error on the play.

    However, I don't think that this was one of those cases. Should have been an E7.

    I even think it tipped off his glove.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I think the call was consistent with the usual. Not saying it’s fair, but usually a misjudged fly to outfielder is a hit.

    Muffed fly ball hit right to him, or if glove touches ball, usually an error.

    I think scorer doesn’t presume outfielder can get to ball if he has to run and doesn’t get there.

    Touching a ball does not necessarily mean an error should be charged, nor does not touching a ball mean that an error shouldn't be charged.

    But yes, it did tip off Herrera's glove, and it should have been ruled an E7.

    Error is far more likely to be called if ball hits glove.

    Not always, but that seems to be the custom.

    If Hamilton dives for it and tips it, no, then error won’t be called.

    If ball hit Dillon’s glove on today’s play it would be usual to call an error there.

    I agree with that assessment. It really goes as to whether the play should have been made with "ordinary effort". If so, then an error should be charged. If not, then the play is a hit.
