“This cheat?” Welcome to this MLB version of it During the sixth inning of the Blu-ray game on Monday, Tampa Bay outfielder Kevin Kiermeyer ran with a hold sign from third base coach Rodney Linares. Kiermeyer only hit a single to third baseman Jake Lamb, who threw the ball into the offensive area below the first base line. An ordinary person will take second place in case of mistakes. A brave man would be the third, but Kevin Kiermayer decided to go home. Jays’ right fielder Teoskar Hernandez Inadvertently throws the ball home, and the catcher, Alejandro Kirk, was allTime to set up and tag Kiermeyer for the final inning.
This is where the fun begins. In that play, Kirk throws a card from his wrist, and Kiermeyer takes that card back to the race dugout. That card had all the information so the Blue Jays pitching staffers were going to attack the race hitters for the series. Here is a video of this event:
After the game, Kiermeyer told reporters that, at the moment, he believed the card was his outfield positioning card, which Kiermeyer keeps. [his] Pocket. Kiermeyer claims he never looked at the card. Although as soon as he realized the card was not his, he decided not to return it. Instead, he handed the card to a Race Dugout attendant.
From the video, it seems clear that Kiermeyer had no idea what he was picking up. He doesn’t even look that way. He just looks at the card, and grabs it. Otherwise it would be like looking at a rock next to a large body of water and throwing the stone into the body of water. It’s impossible. The dubious morality of this situation comes when Kiermaier refuses to return the card. Even if Kiermeyer doesn’t look at it, I highly doubt that everyone in the race organization will be able to lag behind in the same way. Someone’s curiosity is going to get better than theirs. They will open the card, look at scouting reports, and tell the Ray’s hitters how the Blue J’s Coles plan to attack them.
Could Kiermeyer return the card? Absolutely. It wouldn’t be too much of a hassle, but the question is not whether he can stay, whether he is forced to do so. This is the answer to a difficult question. Blue Jays executive, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters Arash Madani: “If there’s a card, we don’t want any opponents, it’s that card.” Therefore, stealing seems rather convenient. However, it only protects the cards that are much more important in the game.
Suppose Kirk Reese was tracking a pop-up in the awful area towards the bench, and the card fell into the dugout, are the rays still forced to return it? It falls under the same category as a runner during the second peek at the catcher’s symptoms. If the catcher doesn’t try to hide the signs, is it really cheating to take advantage for the runner and heater? It was not using Kiermeyer and company X-ray technology and high-zoom cameras (AKA resources from outside the playground) to see through Kirk’s wristband and collect their data. The Blue Jays just took what they gave them, and if you think for a second that Joyce was in trouble for the rest of the game without that card, I guarantee you that they had more cards ready for exactly that situation.
Although it is not yet known if any members of the race organization are looking at the card, Race won 4-2 at the time of the incident and won that game by a final score of 6-4. If Ray, in fact, looks at the card, you would think they would be very well prepared for their matchup with Toronto last night. However, the race can only collect five hits and two runs in the entire competition. They walked 11 times, which is a bit of a dubious reason given that the Rays are in the middle of the league in terms of O-zone chase rate and Total swing rate. Not to mention, that’s it Most walks Ray has recorded in a single game all season, but I’m willing to chuck those numbers coincidentally before pointing the finger.
Was Kiermeyer’s move a hoax? First, of course not. However, instead of returning the card to Kirk or a member, Tampa Bay decided to give the card to employees.The Blue Jays have opened the door for Kiermeyer fans and the media to accuse Race of cheating by looking at cards. But is it really a hoax? It reminds me of the moment when Buffalo Bills’ ‘DB Tray’ Davis White stumbled upon a Baltimore Ravens play sheet in the middle of a game and Tried to read it.
White grabbed the paper from Official White before it could really get a good look, but no fines were paid. There are no fines. There is no moratorium, because while the league and its officials must make an effort to keep the teams from reaching a certain height, is it really cheating when a gift falls into your lap? You didn’t do anything bad, maybe a little immoral, but it happened to you more than you did anything to make it happen. I feel the same way with Kiermeyer. If he and no one else in Rey’s company look at the sheet, it’s a fair game. There is no way to deceive anyone, but I find it hard to believe. However, the failure of Blue Jays to protect their data does not mean that the rays are cheating with advantage. I could be a little hypocritical with this acceptance given how hard I came down Houston Astros In the past, but seeing how Ray does not use external sources to extract information, I believe this situation is different enough to ensure fair play. Roast me if you want, but I don’t think Kiermeyer did anything wrong.
