Thanks,trying hard with that.Finally have a highly recommended PT that will hopefully explain this mess to me.I'd really like to be able to play my guitar standing up again.

 But yes,I understand this is the baseball thread and that my off topic comments defiled it.

What is wrong with me?

Dang is right... I hadn't looked at cellar dwellers. On pace to win 63 games and not the worst team in baseball!

Atlanta: 41 games. And what happened to Houston? Fire sale? I thought they were going to be good.

 
It's still fairly early.  Things are apt to change a bit.  As good as the Cubs are right now I'm still a little skeptical they are actually going to win 120 as well.

The Longhorns are the University of Texas at Austin's mascot. They have a baseball team but they're not part of the Major Leagues. They seem to be struggling this season. Anything else?

I can't speak for him, but he is knowledgeable about baseball.

 OK,I'll just say it.I hate him.One time he grabbed like the 7th or 8th category from me in the RP Fantasy league playoffs, and well Bubba,where I come from, these things aren't forgotten.

Right, but one month into it and no one except Bokey and maybe Zevon have any authority to pick a qualified starting team... Derek Jeter will probably still get in.

Scott-I didn't get a chance to address the FC question
 
Those guys are all hacks. I figured it would be a good thing for us to kick around here until we came up with the definitive answer.  

(the definitive answer? what about an actual question?) Re-stated: Why, on the MLB site, does the definition of a Home Run include that it won't be scored a HR if the batter scores on a ball he hit if there was a fielder's choice on the play? We're talking about an inside-the-park Home Run, where a guy hits the ball and it rattles around the outfield so long that the same batter is able to score before they can throw him out. If there's an error on the play, it's not a home run. If there's a fielder's choice (only) on the play, it's not scored a home run. I can see how a fielder's choice AND an error can happen and the batter scores, but I can't see how the batter can score if there's a FC with no error. 
  • Bases Loaded. Runner1, Runner2, Runner3 on base
  • Batter hits ball, say, to 3rd
  • 3B comes home for the force, late or out doesn't matter, but Runner3 is off the diamond
  • Catcher throws back to 3b to try to get the Runner2, batter is now around 1st, heading for 2nd.
  • Play at 3b is late, Runner1 stumbled so is standing on 2nd with batter incoming.
  • 3B throws to 2B, batter stops short of the bag, nobody out, but Runner2 headed for home
  • 2B throws home, Runner2 is safe or out but off the diamond.
  • Runner1 is now coming to 3rd, batter is rounding 2nd.
  • Catcher throws to 3B, Runner2 doesn't slide but runs straight for home
  • Batter is at SS position saying WTF, stops dead
  • 3B throws home, close play, cloud of dust, they can't find the ball
  • Catcher finds the ball, tags Runner2, sees batter coming into 3rd
  • 3B catches the ball but batter has rounded 3rd.
  • Catcher dies suddenly
  • No one is backing up the play so there's no one for 3B to throw to.
  • batter scores
Simple!
 
Take care of your spine, Bokes.
