3) Graphics snafus
There are always going to be occasional graphic errors, especially with in-game stats. And again, they are human as well.
But these were just so odd.
Case number one: This one on Sunday when Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper hit a home run in the first inning.
This must have been corrected in the archives later as it’s not on MLB.TV now but it was live, and multiple people, including me, noticed it.
The second case in point was also on Sunday.
In the top of the 7th inning, with the Rockies up 10-2, Rockies reliever Carlos Estevez was in a little trouble so the Rockies started getting the bullpen up and going. It was Robert Stephenson warming up but, for about a second, you would not have thought that.
There are so many things with this one.
- Austin Gomber didn’t even appear in the series.
- Gomber is a starting pitcher.
- Gomber is a left-handed pitcher
They noticed quickly, though, and pulled it off the screen and play-by-play man Tom McCarthy said that it was, in fact, Robert Stephenson and not Austin Gomber warming up in the bullpen.
