The FOX Sports Graphics Team Can See The Future

Monday, May 05, 2008

This is a weird clip, and it's not because it doesn't have sound. Watch the score up top during this video as it changes from 3-0 to 6-0, lists a homerun, and then goes back. Then watch what happens on the next pitch....



Oooooh woooooo oooooh! Creepy huh? There are a lot of explanations but I'm guessing there was a bit of a delay that FOX was working with, and an over eager worker in the truck through up the homer before he was supposed to.

(Thanks to SA for the vid)

AA, there is no way that there was a delay. 20-plus seconds is much too long for such a delay. There is only one conclusion that one could draw from this: the FoxBox can tell the future.

Obviously the guy who hit the homerun saw the scoreboard and knew he had to do it or he'd make Fox look foolish. Because, ya know, baseball is staged.

This just proves that MLB is scripted, just like pro wrestling. It's been that way since the 1994 stike.

The scorebar is automated from the official stats crew. For some strange reason the video was delayed.
