  1. 2014 Robinson Cano Prediction Thread

    Let's have a little fun and predict how Cano will fare as a Mariner in 2014. Feel free to suggest other stats you'd like to include and we'll adjust accordingly. We can also use this thread to discuss his career as a Mariner and what we see in store for him throughout the year. I'll start it off BA- .289 HR- 24 RBI- 87 OBP- .358

  3. Somebody else retired on September 28th - Paul Konerko

    Paul Konerko means as much to White Sox fans as Jeter does to New York.

  4. Giancarlo Stanton

    Odds are likely the Marlins are going to trade him if you listen to the insiders around the game , it will take prospects and probably one of the biggest contracts in the history of baseball which would obviously take some teams out of the running irrelevant how highly touted their prospects are. Buster Olney has a piece on it listing the 8 teams with the best odds, putting the Yankees 4th and said would probably work better for the Yankee odds if the deal happened after the 2015 season with...

  5. Good seats in Citi Field?

    Hi all, so I'm thinking of taking my first trip next week to visit Citi Field for the Nats/Mets (wife is a Nats fan), I basically know nothing about the ballpark so just wanted to get input on good areas to sit, things to see, parking cost etc. without doing a lot of internet searching while at work :) I really don't want to spend more than $40 ea. or so on tickets, it'll be 3 of us. Thanks!

  6. How About a New Baseball Playoff Format ?

    Reduce the regular season to, at most, 154 games, or even less. Add, at least, another round of playoffs (all best-of-seven). 2 divisions in each league, top 4 teams in each division qualify. Home field to best record throughout, division winners next HFA. Since playoff competition is the most exiting, more interest. More teams in the hunt as the season winds down, while potentially more lower teams in position to play spoiler. More $$ to the better teams, so more incentive to improve/spend for...

  7. Jose Dariel Abreu...?

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/08/jose-dariel-abreu-escapes-from-cuba.html#disqus_thread I remember watching this dude in the WBC. He has tremendous power and just looks like a legit baseball player. The Yankees have missed on a handful of IFA lately (Puig, Darvish, Ryu, Cespedes, Chapman, etc...) so do you think they will be interested In this guy? I surely hope we take the gamble. And Cuba, suddenly, is producing crazy baseball players!

  8. Trade Deadline 2014

    The Tigers have acquired Joakim Soria from the Rangers for minor-league pitchers Jake Thompson and Corey Knebel. Would've loved to have added Soria to our bullpen but knew it wasn't going to happen.

  9. Mike Trout: Road to Cooperstown, year 3.

    Just hit the longest (489 ft) homerun in MLB since 2012. It didn't look like he got all of it. Leading MLB with 5.4WAR 182WRC+ And he's actually having a down year defensively with only 4.6 defensive runs (vs. 34 offensive). Running away with AL MVP, barring injuries and significant slumps. To age 21 for all of baseball history:

  10. New MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred

    As you all know Manfred was voted unanimously to succeed Selig in January. I found a pretty good interview with the Harvard Law Gazette about his take on the game, job, future, etc. http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2014/08/running-the-show/

  18. Are These Plays Reviewable?

    1. If the batter hits the ball into himself and there is a dispute as to whether he was in fair territory for an out or the batters' box for a foul ball. 2. If the batter hits the ball into himself, the ball goes in fair territory, the umpires didn't see the ball hit the batter, and the ball is ruled in play instead of foul. I once saw (not this year) a Yankee opponent ground into a double play with the batter not running because he (but not the umpires) knew the ball hit him in the batters'...
