Score four, allow two, lose? Return of bad rule almost cost Royals


The scored four runs Thursday. They gave up two.

That’s a win, a rare win, a thrilling win on the day Royals legend George Brett returned to the dugout to try to help save a once-again sinking team.

That’s a win — except that by baseball rules, it almost wasn’t.

And that’s a problem.

Remember the damage control had to do a few weeks back after two straight bad umpiring decisions? Imagine the damage control that would have been required if the team that scored more runs had been declared the loser. Imagine trying to explain how the Royals woke up with a nine-game losing streak after a game they where they outscored the .

It could have happened. It easily could have happened, because last winter, baseball quietly reverted to one of the worst rules that was ever on the books.

Here’s what happened:

The Royals trailed 2-1 after eight innings but scored three times in the ninth to take a 4-2 lead. Then the rain got so heavy that there was no way the game could continue. The rain kept up for five hours, then finally let up in time for the bottom of the ninth to be played a little after 3 a.m. local time. Royals closer Greg Holland pitched a 1-2-3 ninth, and the Royals had their 4-2 win.

However … if the rain hadn’t let up, eventually the game would have had to be called. And in that case, under a rule change implemented last winter, the score would have reverted to what it was at the end of the last full inning (the eighth). The three Royals runs in the ninth wouldn’t have counted, and the Cardinals would havNuno Espirito Santo has moved in favouritism to replace Unai Emery at Arsenal, according to SkyBet.Emery hasn’t been sacked yet, but pressure is mounting after a poor start to the season.Wolves manager Santo is paying 5/2 to take his place, with Manchester City assistant Mikel Arteta next in line.Rafa Benitez and Mauricio Pochettino are also options according to the bookmakers.e won, 2-1.


The new rule was put in place only for the final game between two teams in a season. From a scheduling and logistics standpoint, it makes perfect sense, avoiding the need to potentially fly a team across the country to get three outs. It also encourages umpires to do exactly what wait as long as possible in an effort to resume the game.

West gets plenty of criticism, much of it justified. But in this case he was right.

It’s the rule that’s wrong.

Years ago, the “revert back” rule was in the books for all games. One of the best rules changes baseball has made was to dump it, and replace it with the suspended-game rule. If the visiting team ties the game or goes ahead in the top of an inning and the bottom of the inning can’t be played, the game is suspended. Runs that score aren’t taken off the board.

Last winter, the rule was changed again. saying that for the final scheduled game between two teams in a season, the “revert back” rule i be a success at the Nou Camp.The former Atletico Madrid attacker moved to Barca last week for a massive €120m.Xavi, now coach of Al Sadd in Qatar, said: “Antoine Griezmann is a world class player.

The Cardinals and Royals played four times this year. Thursday’s game was their last, so the “revert back” rule was in play.

It nearly cost the Royals a memorable win. It nearly gave baseball a needless black eye.

Fortunately Joe West waited. Fortunately the rain stopped before the sun came up.

The next time, baseball may not be so fortunate.

Attanasio denies Brewers aren’t hustling, praises Roenicke


owner Mark Attanasio sounded slightly despondent while talking in the Brewers TV broadcast booth Wednesday.

“If I didn’t sound despondent at 4-16 (this month) and down 7-0 (to the Dodgers) I have a problem,’’ Attanasio said.

He has a point. The native New Yorker and current Los Angeleno has put immense effort into building and maintaining a winner in Milwaukee. But are his players doing the same?

Under Attanasio’s stewardship, The Crew definitely has caught on with the Milwaukee masses. Despite playing in baseball’s smallest market, the Brewers’ average attendance of 30,388 is 14thbest in the bigs.

They are the hot ticket in town. (The Bucks are passé.) But the team has remained decidedly cool through May and entered Thursday tied for last in the NL Central with the Cubs, at 18-27.  

Attanasio is doing what he can considering the constraints. The Brewers’ $91 million payroll is right smack dab in the middle, generous in light of revenues. The owner signed free agent pitcher for $33 million over three years practically on the eve of the season over the objections of his general manager Doug Melvin, and he brought back when the bullpen was struggling. (It’s now doing well.)

Attanasio surely has done his part to try to make his Brewers a winner. But are his players rewarding him by doing the same?

One scout who recently watched the Brewers for a stand said the Brewers players don’t appear to be putting put out maximum effort. More times than they should, the scout said, they’d make a 90-degree turn toward the dugout before even reaching the first-base bag on groundouts. He didn’t say it was everyone, just too many guys.

“I haven’t heard that from the GM or manager. The guys may be a little down. But I saw them before (Wednesday’s game), and there was a lot of energy and enthusiasm. That was a very spirited dugout,’’ Attanasio said in a phone interview with CBSSports.com. “One thing I like about (manager) Ron Roenicke, the players play hard for him. That has not been the issue.’’

Attanasio then made a joke abut how there’s actually been a little too much hustling, a reference to the chance-taking , the hot hitter known for occasional gaffes who was just thrown out at third base, down 6-0, in the Dodgers game they’d lose 9-2.

Anyway, Attanasio decided, “I don’t know what that the scout saw. I did not see that.’’ What he saw, he said, was climbing the wall to rob of a home run, then homering himself, while down 7-zip.

What Attanasio has seen, he said, is a bullpen that’s been good lately ( has been a godsend as the new closer), a rotation that’s struggling and an offense that’s been good in spurts but remains streaky. He didn’t mention the base running, but it’s been bizarre, at times.

 , who has been one of a few bright spots on offense, actually one time stole first from second (he absentmindedly vacated second after thinking he was out, then grabbed a lifeline at first), before later in the inning being thrown out at second.

That kind of once-in-a-lifetime play would be funny if the team wasn’t tied for last following a series defeat to the equally disappointing Dodgers, Attanasio’s hli had Brescia ahead before Ciro Immobile netted twice – with a penalty converted in injury-time.“The team believed to the end,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.“We knew it would be difficult today, Brescia had prepared well and even gave up vacatiometown team. But while Don Mattingly is obviously on the hot seat in Attanasio’s adopted hometown, there’s been only slight speculation abut Roeneicke’s job status. Attanasio said Roenicke is safe.

“Ron Roening attacker Yannick Carrasco.Arsenal have been heavily linked with the £25million Belgian, who even admitted a deal was on the table from the Gunners last week.But BILD says Bayern are now entering the race.Bayern’s first-choice target is Manchestercke is not the issue,’’ Attanasio said. “He won 96 games in 2011, and in 2012 he got us within 1 ½ games of the Cardinals with 10 games to go (before falling back). Before today, we had exactly the same record as last year.’’

That doesn’t mean Attanasio doesn’t see issues with the team. The hitters have put up decent numbers (especially Segura, Gomez, Ryan Braun, and when healthy ) but are not jelling as a team. ‘We’ve been getting good individual performances in many games. But we’re not performing well as a team,’’ he said.

The Brewers are “not hitting situationally’’ and have a “streakiness’’ that’s hurt them, Attanasio said. Despite being slightly above average offensively (12thin OPS overall), Milwaukee has scored exactly one run in seven games during their 4-16 May.

Meanwhile, the Brewers’ rotation carries a 5.28 ERA, which is fourth from the bottom in baseball. As for the starting pitchers, they “need to do betsays there are similarities between himself and Liverpool midfielder Fabinho.The Brazilian made 41 appearances in his debut season for the club as they won the Champions League.Alonso was a key player in the Reds midfield from 2004 to 2009, and the Ster,’’ Attanasio said at one point. “We just need our starters to pitch at their career norm.’’

He expressed faith ace (3-4, 4.50 ERA) would do better, as he did with slumping catcher , a .300 hitter in the past who’s batting .226.

He hopes for the best doesn’t see a quick fix at the moment after adding Lohse (who’s done well but is missing one start with elbow discomfort) and K-Rod.

“If it was just one thing, we could do something about it,’’ Attanasio said.

In the meantime, he is not focused on Roenicke as part of the problem. “I think one of Ron’s strengths as manager is he maintains the same demeanor, good or bad,’’ Attanasio said.

As Attanasio well knows, when things are going this bad, 4-16 bad, that’s not so easy to do.

“Throwing 20 pitches every single inning is not what I’m here to do,” Miller said, per .com. “Facing a good hitting offense on a big league club, it’s not going to be easy to just throw it and have then swing at it every single time. Something I have to realize is to get the ball around the zone and hopefully things happen better.”

Outside of the complete-game shutout he threw May 10, Miller is averaging more than 17 pitches per inning in his eight other starts.

“There are some nights where they’re picking it up a little bit better and fouling it off,” manager Mike Matheny said. “They’re still not squaring up a lot of them. I think taking some shots down in the bottom of the zone more often may be part of the way to help him because the foul balls are typically the ones at the top.”

While Gonzalez settled for a no-decision as he left the game tied at two runs apiece, he still kept Baltimore in the game through seven in his first start since May 3 at Anaheim. Gonzalez allowed two earned runs on just five hits and no walks over seven innings and 92 pitches. He struck out five.

It seems first baseman should draw more walks since the recent correlation has related in more home runs for the veteran slugger.

In case you haven’t noticed, but Howard has drawn a walk in just two of his last 19 games. However, in both those games — Thursday and Friday against the Marlins — Howard hit home runs.

Whether or not that’s pure coincidence or Howard being a more patient hitter will result in more home runs, you can’t really argue with his results lately. After batting .161 through his first eight games, Howard has a slash line of .329/.354/.605/.959 in his last 21 games.

The high strikeout rate is going to hurt in Head-to-Head formats, but if he keeps this pace up, then it’s possible Howard could threaten for a 30-homer, 100-RBI season.
