MLB Rule 8.06(d)

boosh - Posted on 20 July 2010

   Man tonight's Giants game was all kinds of awesome.   The guy who tried to steal a bag on the Giants when the Dogs had a 6 run lead got hit (finally).    The Dogs bench coach got tossed arguing an inside pitch, after the benches had been warned.   Torre got tossed after Rowand got hit (again). Remember, the Dodgers broke his face last season.   Then the coup de grâce, Bochy got the Dogs closer removed from the game by the Umps when acting manager Don Mattingly made two trips to the mound in one! (He stepped off the mound, then returned).   Bochy saw it, told the umps, and got Broxton removed, to a shower of boos from the Dodgers fans. Andres Torres then promptly delivered a 2 run double to put the good guys up by 1.   Awesome. MLB Rule 8.06 (d): A manager or coach is considered to have concluded his visit to the mound when he leaves the 18-foot circle surrounding the pitcher’s rubber.
