Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. My Punishment Proposal For Players Who Test Positive For PEDs

    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/23512723/robinson-cano-seattle-mariners-suspended-80-games-violating-joint-drug-agreement is titled "Mariners' Robinson Cano suspended 80 games by MLB." Michael Kay said that the only way to eliminate PEDs is to give a lifetime ban for a first positive test. I have a proposal that is not a lifetime ban, but is much bigger than the current 80 games. I propose that after a first positive test, players can never make more than the MLB minimum. Therefore...

  2. Wildcard Teams, Length of Games, & Radical Change Suggestion

    I don't think it's fair for a one-game playoff deciding which of the 2 wild card teams make it to the divisional best-of-five series. My suggestion is to have a best-of-three series. 3 days (Tues/Wed/Thurs) in a row at the #1 seed's home ballpark. This is to eliminate any extra travel issues. The revenues generated for all games are equally divided between the 3 organizations. The wildcard team with the better record is the "home team" for the 1st & 3rd games. Consequently, both divisional...

  3. Legalized Sports Betting and MLB

    With the recent SCOTUS decision and the prominence of New Jersey in the discussion, I think this is threadworthy. Here is some material: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/14/us/politics/supreme-court-sports-betting-new-jersey.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/22847790/nba-mlb-preparing-profit-supreme-court-ruling-new-jersey-gambling-case

  4. Too early to start talking about the one game playoff?

    I personally think with Cano out, the playoff teams are already set in the AL. The only question is weather or not the Yankees or Red Sox face Ohtani. I’d still take the Yanks or Sox at home against Ohtani in a one game playoff, but by no means am I confident. Very possible that a 100 win team gets bounced in the Wild Card round, whether it be against Verlander, Ohtani, or Paxton.

  5. 2013 MLB Draft Redo, Judge vs Kris Bryant

    So far the only All Stars to come out of that draft are Kris Bryant, Aaron Judge, and Corey Knebel. Should also be noted the Yankees have first rounders Clint Frazier (#5 overall) and Billy McKinney (#24 overall) still in the organization. Kris Bryant and Aaron Judge are pretty similar players at this point, but gun to my head I’d still probably take Bryant.

  6. Poll: Who has a better year in 2018 Gray/Price

    A month in and David Price and Sonny Gray have both been disappointments to say the least Gary 27 IP, 1-2, 6.67 ERA, 1.926 WHIP, 4.5 IP per start Price 37 IP, 2-4, 5.11 ERA, 1.405 WHIP, 5.3 IP per start So which one "turns it around" and has a better year. The answer to this question might have a lot to do with which team wins the AL East this year.

  8. What team won the World Series the year you were born?

    What team won the World Series the year you were born? You don't have to say the year, just the team. For me it is the Los Angeles Dodgers.

  11. Todd Frazier signs with the Mets

    The Mets just signed Todd Frazier to a two $17 million deal. Since he made $13 million last year, the Mets got him at a good discount. I liked Frazier, a NJ homeboy. Given David Wrights health Problems Todd should provide good insurance at third. Way to go Todd. I wish you well Andy
