Wow a gem so far *knock on wood*
I HIR 100% with good quality. I missed 2 HIRs but that was among the first ~100 HIRs I gave. Pretty sure I'm 100% honest since :)

If you say WHIR, I hope you honor it. I'll still help you in the future even if you don't HIR, but credit is a wonderful thing :) Although I estimate reciprocated HIR rate to me is ~50% (trending up!), I expect it to rise further as we build a more helpful community here.

Is he getting squeezed big time out there? I have it on Gameday and I'm not watching it, but it showed at least 5 pitches that were called balls that were all the way inside the box on both corners.

Anyone watching live? Is he getting pinched?

Not getting pitched, just trying to be too fine. Plus Phillips booted the ball, should have been an unearned run but thanks to hometown scoring they gave the Buc a hit and RBI

Not watching but this is like the 3rd time this year he has thrown 30+ pitches in the first inning. Really no place for him if he's never going to make it 6 innings.

Looking through sports gambling sites he is known for being a home cooker.

edit, by he I mean the home plate umpire Mark Ripperger

Yeah, but if Pitch F/x is showing them as strikes, then is he really being too fine? According to the cameras he was throwing strikes and the ump was missing them, but I know that the cameras aren't always spot on. These were fully in the box though and usually those are easy strikes.

Anyone doing an eye test?

And we're on the board with a run too!

Based loaded no outs (good for Cleveland)!

If you say WHIR, I hope you honor it. I'll still help you in the future even if you don't HIR, but credit is a wonderful thing :) Although I estimate reciprocated HIR rate to me is ~50% (trending up!), I expect it to rise further as we build a more helpful community here.

Is there anything about swinging the bat in that Ted Williams book Votto carries around?
