I'm almost positive it doesn't matter. For example when they're reviewing a fumble. It's if the ball came out before or after his first knee touched the ground thus being "down." It's the same thing in the end zone.His other knee and feet don't matter because he had secured the ball at the point that his knee touched the surface in bounds.

MLB Discussion Thread | Mr. Pujols, Please Make Up Your Mind Edition

Same thoughts as per my NFL thread. Mods don't like it, feel free to delete.

I thought it might be a good thread because the greatest player in the MLB is soon going to make his decision.

That's right.

Where will Brian Tallet be?

Its a little early for this thread.. But Brian Tallet is beast!!

But actually, where do you guys think Prince will sign? I wish T.O but it doesn't seem like a real option at this time.

**** Miami and **** Jeffrey Loria.

Cons Florida into funding a new stadium for him, pleading poverty the whole time.

He then takes his blood money from the Expos and buys Reyes & Buerhle.

I hate Miami.

Navan boy Erik Bedard signed with the Pirates. I hope he goes beast mode this year.

How about the Mets and signing the Jays bullpen? Good luck with that. Fransisco is not worth 6 million a year.

In other news I am glad this thread is here.

The only reason I don't think it's early is because this week is essentially the July 1st in Baseball, so a fitting time if you ask me...

Holy shnikes!

Prince Fielder is just sitting at home with a smile waiting for Pujols to get signed.

To be honest I don't think I've ever looked into any of those stickied threads ever. I don't even see them whenever I jump on HF. I think I just mentally blocked them for some odd reason. I think it's because it looks so cluttered.

So after a day Archie Manning said that Peyton and Luck couldn't coexist he now firmly believes that they can coexist.

When it's in regards to a catch.. in order for it to be a completion.. the WR has to first have both feet be inbounds and has to have full control of the ball throughout the full motion of the catch. so in Ballards case.. he caught the ball had full control over it and made contact inbounds with the one leg but did not get both knees or feet inbounds therefore it was ruled an incompletion.

You can't be down via a knee until you have established possession inbounds, which requires two feet (or knees, in this case).

Step 1: receivers must establish possession inbounds.
Step 2: take a knee/ down yourself via one knee.

You can't do step 2 without first doing step 1.

Your example of the rusher fumbling, the rusher has already established possession of the ball, and has not left the field of play. Plus, a rushing play is always live, but an incomplete pass is a dead play. In order to make a reception "live", you have to receive the ball, establish possession, AND be fully inbounds before the play can continue. The play was dead because he wasn't inbounds under the rules of the NFL, and you can't "take a knee" to down yourself before completing the reception completely within the field of play.

I personally blame the Jays closers on the disappointing season.

Baseball thread, eh? Ok...

-Before we get to anything else, YU DARVISH. This guy is going to make someone a contender right away. He'll be the best pitcher to ever come out of Japan, that's how much I love this kid. 25 years old, he's ready to play right away. 6'5", throws SEVEN "plus pitches"... seven!
Kid's going to get PAID too...

-Bedard in Pittsburgh is perfect for him. I've tried to follow the Pirates in the past, it'll definitely be easier now.

-Looking forward to seeing which team ponies up Pujols' retirement contract. I think he'll end up back in St.Louis, honestly. Just a gut feeling. If he leaves St. Louis, it will be on an 8+ year mega-contract that some team is going to regret when they're paying Albert $22+ mil/yr to produce .280-25hr-85rbi-80r by the middle of that contract.

-Miami Marlins? I honestly don't know what to think about this:
It sort of makes me want to vomit, but then let the vomit dry and hang it in a gallery somewhere. It's a graphically nice design, it just does not belong anywhere NEAR a baseball game.

-Miami, Part 2: Jose Reyes is not your answer. Good luck with that. Bell was nice though, although I imagine Ozzie Guillen will find a way to make this team of superstar-spare-parts implode by August.

-Texans win the World Series this year, or jinx themselves for the next two decades. Something has to give.

-bring back the Expos... look, a guy can dream, can't he? Let me have this one...
