    The infield Fly

    I thought maybe the discussion concerning the IF fly call would be better suited for its own thread. Perhaps a mod could move the posts in the scoreboard thread here and free the thread from being dominated by discussion of the call.

    To add some variety to the discussion, let me ask this of the board:

    Why exactly do we need a rule to protect the runners from a double play? We don't have a rule to protect them on a ground ball. If a batter hits a weak pop fly in that situation, it seems like a pretty massive fail to me, so why would rewarding the defense with a DP be so horrible?

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
