Bucky, your thoughts on this? I think the runner should have been out -- the ball was in the glove and in control of the fielder when the runner got there.

Agree. my understanding is the runner is out the instant the tag is completed. The ball never left the glove, it only came off his hand as he moved to get up.

What's glove got to do with it? (do with it)?

The fielder must prove that he had possession of the ball by maintaining possession, which this chode did not. The rule book standard is 'voluntarily released' which is also definitely not the case here. Although admittedly that standard is not held in some cases (think running catches) when the ump judges that the dude held the ball long enough before it being jarred loose by the ground or a wall.

Probably not surprising at this point, but still amazing

This guy would score 200 runs a season if he were any good at getting on base.

Yeah, three was obviously no attempt to strike at the ball.

Though in high school we had this obnoxious player named "Chick" (that's probably all you need to know about him. I've never met anyone named Chick who wasn't annoying). He would always do that slow motion swing on anything out of the zone, timing it as close to the pitch arriving as possible. One day the umpire called a strike on him, and I have to admit I was pleased. Probably wasn't the first time, though, and probably didn't stop him.

Although I could think of an outlier where I would call it a strike. Say it's the last game of the season, and the batter needs one more AB to qualify for the batting title. The defensive team decides to be @#$% to prevent him from getting the AB. Sure, let the guy take a K.
