Being in the Zone: Is It Sustainable?

Think back for a moment to the July 4th game in Oakland where the Blue Jays lost 1-0 in 12 innings and left ten runners on base. Steve Tolleson just led off the top of the 5th with a double.

Maddon protested Saturday afternoon’s Rays game against the Toronto Blue Jays after a controversial replay challenge in the fourth inning. During the frame, first base umpire Bill Welke initially called Rays outfielder Will Myers safe after an attempted...
