Bad move by Girardi

SDS

Just saw the highlights, this really opens the flood gates for managers to check pitchers while they are in a grove (let alone a no hitter or PG) unless MLB shuts this nonsense down

I foresee MLB shutting all these dramatics down in the next few days. Should of had something in place already and wondering if SDS will add these animations/cutscenes to the game?

Luckily for Girardi Scherzer is not that 'in your face' type. Anyone else and he may have been laid out

SDS

Just have the umpires do 1-2 random checks between innings for starters, and a check before every relief pitcher comes in. No coaches have say in it

SDS

While it is a scummy move, it is extremely dumb by Girardi to pull that on Scherzer. When Scherzer gets into full on angry two colored eyes mode, there might not be a better pitcher in MLB history. Like Scherzer actively dominates when angry

SDS

Yea seriously made Giradi look like a huge tool bag clown

Haha he goes from Scherzer to Schoi'zah

SDS

Honestly, the only issue is that he did it to Scherzer. If Girardi hit up Gerrit Cole or Trevor Bauer like that nobody would bat an eye

SDS

Definitely not a cool move but apparently it's up to the umps to decide whether they check the player when the coach asks for it or if they wait til the end of the inning. They can also say it's a BS check and tell the coach no. To me at the very least they should've waited til the end of the inning

Yeah, I can’t believe anyone thought it would be a good idea for coaches to be able to request checks

SDS

I hope we get a Topps Now card of Sergio Romo pulling down his pants during the check. Make it a 93. Oh and of course in SDS tradition no beard

Really dumb, I agree. Would be a shame of some of these hard throwers “slip” and launch 95+ mph heaters at the managers in the dugout

SDS

Baseball gets most things wrong.

The “challenge” is just down right embarrassing to watch take place. No team should get to stop play and decide wether or not they WANT to challenge a play while 5 guys upstairs watch replays in slow motion while on the phone with the manager. That isn’t a challenge that’s just reviewing every play without penalty, until of course they refuse to acknowledge a blown call and the entire procedure is a useless redundancy.

Yeah but no one would want to check him. They would be like, "can you give him some of that sticky stuff, he needs it."

Yes I want a “Sherzer drops his pants with a stare” cut scene!!!!

Did SDS edit my subject lol, I said d*ck move!

Cmon SDS this aint preschool

He is. The BS he pulled will lead to MLB limiting how many times they allow checks per game.

He is incredible ! One of the last warrior still pitching and when psycho mode is engaged it's truly impressive ! But he also contain his anger like a boss... When he lost his perfect game vs Pitt. I thought to myself : he's gonna kill them all but no he get the out and celebrate a N/H.

SDS

The rule is dumb because it’ll eventually just be the catcher that will have the sticky stuff or some of the infielders. Keep tossing the ball around the infield after a K tho
