    I hate that a lefty can pick up his leg and then throw to first. But if a righy does it its a balk. They need to change the rules that if both lefty and righty pick up their leg they have to throw home. And to throw to first they both have to step back off of the rubber.

    I'm surprised there's no clip of this from MLB. I want to hear what the announcers have to say about it (or if they even picked it up).

    Matt Antonelli said that stealing signs is just kind of part of the game. Just don’t make it obvious and don’t be an asshole about it. They probably wanted to really, REALLY keep that to a minimum here since it was such a crucial moment in the game. The right stolen sign + the right swing = tied game.
    An intentional balk was a brilliant maneuver in this situation. He’s already in scoring position anyway....fuck it.

    Wow...high IQ play. Maybe on the flip side, say it's bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, your team's down by 2, you're on 1st base with no other base runners, and there's a .330+ hitter on deck. The batter just hit a line drive base hit. Would you stop at 2nd base?

    Nothing Wrong with that..Smart Thinking....Though you would think PITCHING COACHES would work with The Pitchers/Catchers to Avoid this...

    If he’s willing to balk to give him a base then why even pay him stealing any attention to begin with? Who cares if he steals you just gave him third...

      Stealing signs...not a stealing a base...

      I think he was more worried about the runner stealing signs and tipping the batter.

    Hayward was stealing signs...

    Why balk when you're pitching amazing

      §hąřpśhøõțëŕ because the runner on second can steal your signs and tip the hitter

    Wow! I’ve watched a lot of baseball games in my life, and HE is a DAMN good pitcher! Just from that sequence....and I have seen a lot of good pitchers that I pay homage to. I’m out of the loop.... I’m just glad he doesn’t play for the yanks... yet

      Lyon The King Month ago

      z1k3 PsYcHo While the runner was at 2nd the signs would be changed so he could not steal them. The pitcher did not feel confident with the changed signs so he intentionally balked so the player could not steal signs and he could pitch normally and more confidently.

    I did not know the first thing about baseball but your Orioles shite fielding video was recommended. You earned a sub off that and now, thanks to you and the Orioles fielding ability I have started to follow, learn and enjoy watching baseball. Keep it up man
