Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: ATTENTION EVERYONE New Community Standards

    Big news - our revised Community Standards are finally online. Please access them on the footer of the page, towards the right-hand edge..... The main point of differentiation between NYYFans and most other sports forums is the sense of community that has been fostered here, since our site was founded many years ago. In order to maintain this atmosphere, we must hold posters to certain basic expectations when participating here..... To this end, we will be conducting a relaunch of our...

  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Message Boards for Other Teams: A List

    Since there have been a couple queries about message boards for other teams in the past couple days, I thought it might be useful to have some sort of list of good fan sites around the MLB. My goal is to have only two or three sites per team--it's not meant to include every forum out there. I also prefer to post forum sites over blogs, although if a blog has a game thread or is really, really good, I'll include it. Thanks for all the suggestions! Edit: Updated on 8/3/11-- New input...

  2. The New York Mets Thread

    I decided to start a Mets thread because there have been a collection of smaller Mets threads in ATM and I think it would be best if we just had a larger thread to cover all things Mets. Two things about them strike me today... 1. Pelfry looked pretty good last night. 2. I have a feeling the Mets fans across the nation are beginning to sweat a little bit because right now the Braves are mashing. Ok. Go ahead, start discussing.

  3. Astros cheating investigation

This is analogous to if an MLB team had an organized PED program. In my opinion, the coaches involved should be banned for life and players should receive suspensions equivalent to a single PED failure (and yes, I know...

  4. 2020 Hall of Fame Ballot

    https://www.mlb.com/news/2020-hall-of-fame-ballot links to the Hall of Fame Ballot. It may sound easy to know if a player is "active" or retired, but Jose Valverde is a special case. He last played in MLB in 2014. Having not played in MLB for five years, he's eligible and on the ballot. Baseball-Reference still has him as active. When I tried correcting them, they said he's active because he plays in the Mexican League, which is affiliated with MLB. His performance in the Mexican League...

  9. The Red Sox Thread

    Now that the Community Standards are back online, we can re-start a discussion of the Red Sox. As per those Standards, any posting in this thread must be done in a civil manner. That means a genuine discussion without baiting, trolling, flaming or mocking using words or pictures etc. That doesn't mean you can't state your opinions of a player or the team, but do it in a respectful manner. Repeated warnings for those who don't comply will result in the loss of access to the Around the Majors...

For the Yankees it is: 1. Cleveland 2. Oakland 3. Minnesota 4. Tampa Bay 5. Houston The Yankees did much better against Tampa Bay than against Oakland, but this says that Tampa Bay's pitching and not allowing home runs will make it hard for the Yankees.

Each team was given a roster of four starters with 165 IP (because you only need four starters in the playoffs), seven relievers with 65 IP, one swingman with 95 IP, eight hitters other than the catcher with 600 PA (giving the Dodgers a DH), a...

  16. Boone Said a Mercy Rule is "Worth Exploring"

    https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/27405556/worth-exploring-mlb-mercy-rule is titled "Yanks' Boone: Worth exploring MLB 'mercy rule'." Boone was asked because the Little League World Series has a mercy rule. Baseball is based on 9 innings. A mercy rule would deprive hitters of more chances to score. It would be strange to not know when a game will end on a mercy rule, and it could make fans at the game root against their own team with a big lead so they got their money's worth rather than...

  19. Don't look now.

    https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/l/lynnla01.shtml Lance Lynn is a ~4 WAR player at the midway point. 11-4 record. The guy is a horse. He easily cracks the top 5 on this starting rotation.
