Forum: Around The Majors

Post anything related to baseball. If it doesn't fit in the Yankees Discussion forum, it fits here.

  1. The Official Watching the Scoreboard Thread - 2016 Regular Season

    Didn't think we'd need one of these this year but only 3.5 games out of a playoff spot entering today... Go Chi Sox! Go A's! and most importantly Go Rays! All 3 leading early.

  4. Rob Manfred thinks late inning relievers are too good.

    I wasn't aware this was even a problem. The man sounds like a video game developer wanting to nerf an overpowered weapon. http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/17118662/mlb-commissioner-rob-manfred-says-looking-possible-limits-use-relief-pitchers-games

  5. Marlins bar season ticket from renewing for selling too many tickets

    Nick Barbella can pinpoint the exact moment he tumbled down Jeffrey Loria’s rabbit hole. It was late August, and Barbella was pleading with a Miami Marlins sales rep to be allowed to hand over around $4,900 for a season ticket package — and repeatedly being refused. “That’s when it hit me: Wait, I’m begging them to let me give them my money? What the hell is going on here?” Barbella recalls. Welcome to life as a Marlins fan. Even as the franchise has struggled mightily to attract fans...

  7. Greatest Play in Cleveland Indians History Last Night!

    Tyler Naguin hit an Inside the Park WALK OFF HR after the Tribe tied it 2-2 when the previous hitter, Jose Ramirez, tied the score with a home run of his own. The Indians have NOT had a walk off HR since 1916 - 100 years! It was poetic justice as Trevor Bauer struck out 13 in 8 innings while walking only 2 but gave up a 2 run homer in the first.

  8. MLB Strike Zone Changing / No More IBB

    NOTE: I tried clarifying the title to indicate eliminating the need for 4 pitches on the IBB, but it's not working. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/report--mlb-nearing-changes-to-strike-zone-and-intentional-walks-003454802.html I don't like either change. The umpires should call it as the rule is written now. I don't like the free pass either. Crazy things happen and its being eliminated to save what? 2-3 minutes a game?

  10. Ichiro 3000 hits

    21 to go. We can only wonder where he'd be at if he had played his entire career in the MLB.

  13. Baseball's "Unwritten Rules"

    Deadspin got a guest contribution from former MLB pitcher and (in the baseball world of literature) renowned author, Dirk Hayhurst on the unwritten rules of baseball. It's a pretty enlightened view from a guy who once played at the MLB level. This excerpt is his conclusion: Calling it like it is.

  14. Barry Bonds to the Marlins?

    Did I just hear a rumor that Bonds is going to be the hitting coach for the Marlins? This is the state that gave A-Rod his Drugs....a perfect spot for Bonds! Why would Mattingly want him??

  15. The Blue Jays Thread

    Figured at 23-16 the Blue Jays could use a thread. I am pretty surprised they are doing this well considering their team ERA is 9th in the AL and their team batting avg is 12th (but 2nd in AL with Rays in runs scored). What do people expect them to finish? I kinda figured they would get around 75 wins but now I'm starting to wonder....
