Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. ** Is it high time we allow PEDS into MLB? I say yes, bring it on!!!!

    Is it time to allow all MLB'ers to use PEDS? Yep, it sure is! I happened to enjoy baseball back when them there fellas were smashing over 60 HRs apiece. And did any of those who used PEDS die?? Well of course not! Lemme tell you a brief story: *I* used PEDS from age 55 to 62. I still use testosterone but quit using HGH. And yes I had/still do, have a legal MD prescription. So did HGH and testosterone make me a great baseball player? Of course not! Did it improve my free throw...

  2. Has Anybody Seen This Happen?

    Occasionally a runner on first doesn't expect a ball to be caught and has gone past second before he realizes he needs to tag up. The runner can tag up as long as he touches second on the way back. I'm wondering if anybody has seen a runner start at third, touch home plate thinking he was scoring, walk off the field, and then get doubled off third due to a catch he didn't expect. Can anybody cite a rule about if a runner could tag up and go back to third after touching home?

  3. Scoring Decisions That Can Be Changed Later

    Plays can be changed from hits or errors or errors to hits days later. Is there a list of scoring decisions that can be changed after the game? As you may have seen, Chris Carter flied out on a ball that touched a fan (who Michael Kay said reached over), but the play was not recorded as fan interference. The play was not reviewed, and reviewing it wouldn't have helped if it just would have changed it from a normal fly out to a fly out on fan interference. However, if I know the rules, any...

  5. Streaky Rangers

    Are the Rangers not the era definition of streaky? After winning 10 in a row, they have now dropped 7 of their last 9.

  6. What Does "Most Valuable" Mean?

    People have discussed what "most valuable" means and if being on a bad team should make a player not be the MVP. Colin Cowherd said LeBron James should be MVP because the TV ratings his team gets makes him the most valuable player financially for the NBA. Should a player's popularity, endorsements, or jersey sales help him be MVP? Discuss this for multiple sports.

  11. 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?

  14. 2017 hof

    The BBWAA Hall of Fame ballot was announced on Monday with Manny Ramirez, Vladimir Guerrero and Ivan Rodriguez headlining the 19 new additions. Vlad easily gets in I think. Manny definitely linked to PEDs here and there, so could be in doubt. Unsure if Pudge was but by the end of his career he got less pudgey and much slimmer.

  15. Either ESPN or the CBA Made A Math Mistake

    http://www.espn.com/blog/sweetspot/post/_/id/76736/how-luxury-tax-penalties-would-work-on-baseballs-biggest-payrolls is about the luxury tax and surtax. I made an example in which a first time offender with a payroll of $230 million in 2017 would pay more surtax than a first time offender with a payroll of $237 million in 2017. There should never be a way for increasing payroll to make the surtax decrease. Here is an example I made up that I will e-mail to ESPN's Jayson Stark: ...
