I wonder how many people at MSNBC are doing that, too; just like Griffin used to do to Keith! [-(

I saw some of those tweets last night. One of my Twitter friends is rooting for the Red Sox, and she's pretty sure that he should have been called out. Several others have also said that the runner was way off of the baseline, so the obstruction rule shouldn't apply. I say that if Keith says the guy was safe due to obstruction, he knows what he's talking about. :wink:

Yeah, it's not like he could never be wrong, but he's spent his life studying baseball and this rule isn't even as obscure as some of the others. He told them which rule it is and he has a lot of support for his opinion -- which just happens to line up w/ the umpire's, so that's a pretty powerful argument right there.

Two most-tweeted replies on Keith's timeline tonight:

"Now you know."

"That's why."

He asked a rhetorical baseball question; game provided the answer.

UPDATE:
Okay, this explains why he was asking the question.

What I don't know abt BB wd fill several volumes!

He's posting Cactus League photos on Twitter now. Poor guy -- as much as he loves doing ESPN show, I know where he would rather be this time of year.....

They should let him b'cast from out there -- the joy would be infectious!

Steve Lepore is an Awful Announcing writer who's usually in sync w/ Keith. In this case, though, they have a dif of opinion violent enough to have apparently addled his spelling -- deliciously, LOL! (bet he blames it on autocorrect :wink: )
