    At the time I was an Oakland A's fan, and that was a heartbreaker.

    1st pitcher to get checked by umpires...Jacob deGrom. He seemed to take it well, laughing about it. They checked his hat, glove and belt after he pitched the top of the 1st inning. Can't blame them after the nasty sliders he was throwing. LOL

    Why donít they just check the starters before the game starts I mean why waste time during the game doing this?

    The Dodgers are actually an underdog tonight in San Diego. It's Urias vs Darvish. I guess Yu Know Who isn't "tipping his pitches" anymore like he was during the 2017 world series.

    At least they're not actually wasting time during the game (at least not yet), as they quickly checked him as he walked off the mound between innings. The announcers said the umps inspected him again after the 5th inning.

    I'm curious to see how widespread this will be. Today is the first day it will be implemented.

    So MLB implements all these shitty new rules to speed up the game…..yet now they want to waste time checking the pitchers numerous times.

    If done properly, it won't add a minute to the games.

    From ESPN:
    Pitchers will be inspected between innings and/or after they come out of the game unless they're exhibiting suspicious behavior during an inning. In that case, umpires have the right to inspect a pitcher between batters -- but not during an at-bat.
    Initially, umpires will check the glove, hat and belt of pitchers, but if they suspect a reason to look elsewhere, they'll have the right to inspect other parts of a player's uniform.
    Closers will be inspected before they pitch in order to avoid awkward confrontations with umpires in case they blow a save and the game ends in a walk off.


    And, strangely enough:
    The month of June has seen the lowest strikeout and walk rates, while producing the highest batting average, on-base percentage and OPS of any month so far. It remains to be seen if that's crackdown-related or includes hitting in warmer weather.

    Oh, and btw, deGrom once again lowered his ERA...it is now 0.50.

    First time they have been underdogs since Game 4 2019 NLDS. That is what I read . How is that even possible

    best deep in baseball with an insanely deep starting rotation + they are a public team in Vegas (ie they get an unusual amount of backers even beyond their talent).

    Iíve already conceded the Dodgers are going to lose two of three in San Diego at best. The Padres are making it their mission this year to dominate them after the Dodgers swept them out of the playoffs. If they come home 2.5 back Iíll be happy. Either way the Padres will still be in third place no matter what they do.

    Because theyíve been the best team in baseball since then almost every night? Plus youíre talking about Vegas which of course always has favorited odds for LA teams in every sport because of the proximity and betting habits. The Lakers were one of the worst teams in basketball for six straight years, but their odds in Vegas to win a championship were always at worst in the middle of the league when they shouldíve been at the bottom because of LA fansí betting power in Vegas.

    I donít remember who was pitching in that game, but Iíll bet you anything it was Scherzer at home. Thereís no way the Dodgers were going to be favored over that no matter who was pitching for them.
