I agree with Bryan! PU was very unprofessional and he needs to STFD as my man BWild would say. He went from 0-60 very quickly. Good thing this didn't get uglier than it did.

Seems like P had a quick tempo. Slow him down if the batter is not ready..

I like it Bryan. If the P is starting his motion, I don't grant it. If, on the other hand the P is having a hard time getting a signal and batter requests it, I grant it and get reset quickly. If the C requests it in a timely fashion, I grant it and point to the C to let P know his guy asked for it. Situations like this can lead to pitchers throwing at batters. The "game within the game"...hitters like to hit on "their time" and most P hate it when hitters step out. If a P is attempting to pitch with a quick tempo, we should appreciate that he is willing to work fast, but not allow him to pitch when the hitter is not ready...slow him down with a hand and let him know when he can pitch with a point...

I WOULD NOT GRANT TIME TO THE BATTER. THE ONLY TIME I WOULD GRANT TIME IS IF THE BATTER GETS SOMETHING IN HIS EYE OR ON HIS FACE (A SAFETY ISSUE) OTHERWISE, HE CAN ASK FOR TIME, BUT, NOT JUST TO SHOW UP THE PITCHER. WHY GRANT TIME TO THE BATTER IF THERE ARE RUNNERS ON BASE? SO, HE CAN ASK FOR TIME JUST AS THE PITCHER STARTS HIS PICKOFF MOVE AND STOP A POSSIBLE PICK OFF?

TRY TO STAY AWAY FROM GRANTING TIME TO ANY BATTER UNLESS THERE IS A SAFETY REASON TO GRANT THE BATTER TIME.

THIS UMPIRE IN THE VIDEO NEEDS BETTER BODY LANGUAGE DURING THIS INCIDENT.

I guess one word sums up the plate Ump "unprofessional".....maybe " Confrontational". But did anyone notice the position of the base umpire while in the "B"????

The first thing that umpire can do is wipe that arrogant smirk off his face. When coaches amp up we have to go calmer. A simple, "I'm trying to protect the batter and the pitcher" is enough and get back to the game. Get back to what you are there for, officiating the game, not showing everyone that "you are in charge". The second time he goes after the coach, now standing on third base, was just baiting and uncalled for. One of the main lessons here is that these days, everything is on video. So be careful what you say to everyone (especially when you want to be an arrogant jerk!).

Check out this video. What do you think about how the granting of time was handled? How could things have been handled differently? Comment away... as always, check back to these comment boards to hear what other umpires say...
