Question of the Day
“Let’s be honest, it’s kind of a knit-picking rule, but it is a rule that you can’t leave that 18-foot circle and go back,” Bochy said.
Torre said, “It was just a screwup all the way around. We certainly had the right to protest and we didn’t do that and the umpires sort of messed up a little bit, too.”
“It’s unfortunate, I guess, as far as when you’re trying to interpret the rules and what’s the right thing to do,” he said. “They probably would have (had grounds to protest), and it might have caused everybody to review the rules.”
“The thing that bothered me most is the Sherrill thing only because it’s a dangerous thing when you have a pitcher pitch without being loose,” Torre said.
Mike Port, vice president of umpiring for MLB, told The Associated Press that “a miscommunication” occurred between the umpires and Sherrill about his warmups.
“He said he was consumed with some arguing going on with some of the other umpires,” Torre said. “He was paying attention to that and then when it came time to play the game and he says, ‘Are you ready?’ and (Sherrill) says, ‘I guess so.’”
“Nobody told George that he had as many as he had,” Torre said. “That’s the umpire’s job, but evidently the umpire behind the plate didn’t know that because he did go out and tell George that there was a warning in place so don’t throw at anybody. In telling him that, he could’ve told him that he had as many (pitches) but evidently he didn’t know that rule because he’s the one that stopped him.”
