Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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: ...

  7. NLDS - Los Angeles vs. Washington

    Game 1 - Kershaw vs. Scherzer. I have been looking forward to this matchup. Dodgers up 1-0 in the Bottom of the 2nd. Washington runners on 1st and 2nd with 1 out. Can Kershaw overcome his postseason disappointments?

  8. ALDS - Cleveland vs Boston

    Game 1, Cleveland lighting up Porcello in the Bottom of the 3rd with 3 solo HRs to take a 4-2 lead. If this is a sign of things to come, it could be a crazy series.

  11. AL WC Game - Baltimore at Toronto

    Anybody watching? Pillar makes a nice catch on a Machado fly ball in the T4, probably saving a run. Trumbo follows with a 2 run HR to put the O's up 2-1

  12. Robinson Cano

    Don't look now, but guess who's leading the league in HR and RBI at 9 and 30? A couple of years ago when he moved to Seattle, some were saying that his power was gone. Apparently not.

  13. Rules About Inning-Ending Double Plays and Runs Allowed To Score

    If the batter grounds into a double play with both outs being forceouts, a run cannot score. If the first out of a double play is a ball being caught, and the second out is a runner tagged out attempting to advance to second or third, the run counts if it was scored before the last out. If first baseman Justin Smoak had caught Kevin Pillar's throw, Ellsbury would have been doubled off first base to end the inning. Ken Singleton said that Gardner's run would have counted if he scored in time...

  14. Most Players With 20 Home Runs In A Season and More History For Jean Segura

    Yesterday Michael Kay said that the next player to reach 20 home runs would be the 104th player to do that in 2016, which would be the most ever in one season. Gary Sanchez had a chance to be that 104th player when he struck out last night. In the first inning tonight he homered, extending the record to 105 players. Arizona's Jean Segura, who is known for stealing first base, hit a leadoff home run against Washington's Max Scherzer to be the 104th player this season to hit at least 20 home...

  15. 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.

  19. 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...
