When you look at the scoreboard and see the Marlins have a bunch of runs early; you almost know that Stanton has done something. It was the same way with Bonds. I wonder if there is a way to calculate what percentage of a team's offense is represented by one player.
Angels corner outfield defense has looked bad this series. Their corner of play super deep.
So Ethier is playing "left field", but he's positioned in the normal first base position. Would a ground ball to him and thrown home for a force out be ruled a 7-2 put out? And if it was a DP, a 7-2-7 DP?
Yes. It's in the rule book somewhere but if a player shifts his position remains the same for scoring purposes. It's the same concept that a ground out into the shift with the 3rd baseman in the shotgun is scored 5-3 even though the third baseman is in shallow right.
That should be changed. Obviously, if the ball is hit to the 3 zone and the 7 picks it up, it's still an out in the 3 zone.
It depends what you are trying to record. Are you trying to record where the ball was hit or who it was hit to. I think the system as is works pretty well. I keep score at every game I go to and when I make a note I note where the ball went and then what the play. So in the situation Dan laid out above I would have "G3, 7-2" and that would tell me that a grounder to first resulted in the left fielder throwing home which would give me a pretty good description of the play.
