It doesn’t matter. If it was a fair ball I would seriously have issues with it, but on a foul ball with teams out of the race it’s just another day. And maybe that triggered a contract bonus too, for that, I’m all in.

Pulling a pitcher after 100 pitches, shifts for every hitter, juiced ball are far greater sins.

I think it stunk.  Even with the context of it being dead time at the end of the season, that was a bush league play.  If it was a strategic move in the context of the game that's one thing, but this?  And then that called third strike, which was well out of the zone.  Fucking rotten all around.

Yes. All for a meaningless stat. Who cares about 200 Ks?  300 might be impressive. This scrub is no Nolan Ryan.

Meh. When 165lb guys can jack 25HR and be like 7th on their team in HR, the game has already gone bush league. So for a guy to "misplay" a foul pop so that his teammate can get 200K (and mind you the guy has never been much more than an fringe pitcher to begin with) during a year where more HR have been hit than any season in MLB history? I say "who the fuck cares"? Obviously a couple people here do, but still...baseball will never be the game we watched prior to Sosa and McGwire. Baseball in the '80s was an awesome game. And it never emerged from the '80s in my book, so we adapt to today's game and deal with it.

I wonder if he had any incentive in his contract to get to 200 K's?

That was my first thought, but no one has mentioned this.  I've heard a lot of chiding about how he just thought 200Ks was impressive, as if he was Nolan Ryan.  It's really not that huge a landmark.
