A FLOP in basketball = a catcher FRAMING a pitch
They are both meant to fool and deceive the referee/ump into getting a call that is not deserved. Morgans 3-2 count and the pitch that followed his "caught looking" strikeout was a joke. I went back and paused the pitch when the catcher caught it and it was about 9 inches off the ground and the catcher pulled it to the strike zone and "Mister 2 strikes you better swing" ump lit him up. I would love to see a rule change where the catcher blatantly tries to fool the ump and gets caught and gets penalized. Fire away rantards. Really don't care because you know I'm right.

Replay will show he did or did not catch it. Framing a pitch is an art and its gay. Don't like it because umps fall for bait and bite on a bad call.

What do you think about the player today ( I can’t remember which team) who dropped a pop up right at dugout fence and acted like he caught it for the third out and ran into the dugout. He almost fooled the umps as it was only clearly visible that he dropped the ball when reviewed on replay. The announcers were praising him for almost pulling it off.

Mr. All-District is banning that dude from the game for life! Pete Rose has a better chance of making a comeback than that theatrical, dishonest POS!!!

So you’re admitting that framing a pitch takes a great deal of skill, amirite?

Anyone can flop.

No.

The bull shite where the Vols player tried to get a free base after the baseball maybe (but probably not) nicked a shoelace is akin to a basketball flop.

Framing a pitch is necessary in a game that relies upon the eyes of fallible human umpires. Pitches at the edge of the strike zone, whether strikes or balls, can be made more pleasing to the eye by how they’re fielded.

This wasn’t framing.

This was fricking bad umpires calling a inconsistent BS strike zone
