Padres star Fernando Tatis, Jr. has come under fire this week for swinging at a 3-0 pitch with the bases loaded and the Padres already up seven runs against the Rangers. As you probably already know by now, Tatis hit a grand slam, earning criticism from not only the Rangers' manager, but his own coach as well.
Tune in to the latest episode of Foul Ball Area as we discuss Tatis' hot start to the season, and why it's okay - even encouraged - to swing at a 3-0 pitch with a big lead.
Plus, we take a look back at this day in baseball history, talk about the Yankees' injuries, and take a look around the league to see how each team is doing as we pass the 20-game mark. Finally, we discuss what would happen in the world if the Orioles and Marlins both made the postseason, which is very possible this year.
