Couple of thoughts and then pictures. That home plate ump was shaky. We're down the first base line and can see his arms as he's behind the catcher. A couple of times, for both us and TxSt he was about to call strike, starting pull his arm out of his stance, started making a fist and then changed his mind, relaxed his arm and then called ball. Very iffy in his decision making. Plus that call at 3rd where he called out the TxSt player stealing. Yeah, that was bad. He hesitated, and then made the wrong call. Disappointed in some of the mental mistakes of our more seasoned players. From poor base running decisions to errors. Three errors! Sigh, I guess that's the hallmark of a Mike White team. Willing to live with the errors for strong pitching and good hitting I like Cantu at third and Washington at SS TxSt always plays us tough. Great pitching and fielding. On that last error, as she was throwing to third, I immediately thought "Would be ironic to make a bad throw and we win". Who knew I could see 5 seconds into the future? When Jordyn Whitaker was on first, I was thinking "Ummm, Mike you not putting in a pinch runner there?" I mean we have LOTS of players not playing. My wife was stunned at the large number of players (pictures later) not playing and I told her to count the TxSt squad. 20 came on the trip, but their online roster shows 23. Same as us And now pictures. The first one to give an idea of how they're spacing out fans. The part of the benches that do not have tickets and thus no one can sit there are marked with stickers saying no one can sit there. When Texas is batting, there's no enough room so the players in the batting rotation are in the dugout But the players not playing are out in the bullpen. Makes me wonder when it's bad weather or raining (note Del Conte on his phone at end of bullpen) And finally, the bullpen. I scoffed that this "ally" between the new facility and the old part of the stadium was too raw to be the bullpen. Where is the protective netting so players don't get hit with fouls? But it is a really plain bullpen I guess that's what these giant fans/heaters are for. But awkward having those doors there.
