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...

  1. Proposal For Fan Interference Called by Replays

    I think that if fan interference is called by a replay, it should never be called a catch if it required a jump. Neither Michael Kay nor David Cone brought up the possibility of a double, but that's what I think Gleyber Torres's ball should have been called. Ground rule doubles are normally called for balls that go off the field, but if a hit rolls into foul territory and a fan reaches over and picks it up, it is a ground rule double, and I think the same logic should apply to balls in the...

  3. 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...

  4. 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.

  6. Rays Screw Fans By Taking Away Seats

    So most of you won't have any concerns about this, but since I live right near the Trop this hugely matters to me. I guess the Rays ownership was sick of seeing a half empty stadium all season, so they took away like 5000 seats in the outfield. But the result is when I look at tickets on stubhub even a game against Baltimore is about 30 bucks for the cheapest seat. Last year I could attend most games for 12 dollars or less by checking stubhub a few hours before the game. Maybe they will get...

  8. Would a Runner Get Credit For Advancing in This Scenario?

    Let's say there are runners on first and third with one out. The batter flies out. The runner on third tries to score, gets in a rundown, and gets tagged out for the last out. Before the tag out, the runner from first got to second. Just like how a run counts if it was scored before the third out if it wasn't a forceout, shouldn't the trail runner get credit in the play-by-play for advancing? In my scenario, second base was unoccupied, so the trail runner could have advanced without the...

  9. Baseball Lingo

    This is an edited list I'd compiled earlier, which includes a list from Dickson's Baseball Dictionary: Numbers "1-2-3 inning": Top or bottom half of an inning in which the first three (3) batters are retired in successive order, with no one getting on base. "12 to 6": A curveball which drops from very high to very low (from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock position). Same as the "bottom fell out".

We discussed this not too long ago when it was first rumored, and I still pretty much have the same thoughts. Basically, its fine I guess. Their hope is that it will put their stars on a bigger...

  11. The New CBA in 2022

    So the market is at a standstill. Free agency is broken. Arbitration eligibility needs to be reformed. Here's some thoughts: Create a deadline for signing free agents, maybe Christmas each year. Maximum contract terms become five years. This should incent both the clubs and the players to really negotiate faster and cut out all the low-balling, poker-playing and false news. Players should no longer be expecting the security they've become accustomed to - the clubs don't want long term...

  14. A Lot of Teams not Competing

    Let's see: In the AL it's Seattle, Texas, Anaheim, Detroit, Minnesota & KC. 40% of the league. In the NL there's Arizona, San Francisco, Pittsburgh & Miami, with several other teams not looking very likely to compete for postseason play. This is not good for the game, IMO - and I think it draws attention to not having a minimum payroll for each team, in order to create more competition in general. How in the world can a team be competitive with a $100M payroll?? Aren't these owners...

  16. Roy Halladay and the Hall of Fame

    I was just looking at Roy Halladay's career numbers earlier today, and I can't imagine him having the credentials to make the HOF unless he can keep this up for 4-6 more years. He is perceived to be one of the best pitchers in the game, which I completely agree with. His numbers are falling a little short for the HOF voters though. He is entering his age 32 season and he only has 131 wins with a career 3.52 ERA and 1287 K's in roughly 1800 innings. He has 1 Cy Young award and has finished...

  17. MLB Offense Performance Thread

    Hope it's OK if I start a thread to discuss overall offense in MLB. I read this interesting article and was curious to see what everyone thinks -- hopefully it will spark some interesting discussion. https://slate.com/culture/2018/12/major-league-baseball-ban-shift-strikeouts.html The TL;DR version of the article is basically: 1. There's some momentum within MLB behind the idea of banning the shift to increase offense. 2. However, analysis shows that this would have only a negligible...

  20. Are Redsox pitchers using a foreign substance to cheat?

    LINK to video Have the Redsox been caught cheating in the ALDS and ALCS? A video uploaded to Twitter by @CodyDaeschner and Joe Reyes shows what the commentator believes is Redsox pitcher, Matt Barnes, cheating in Game 2 of the ALCS. The commentator points out Barnes grabbing his left forearm after each pitch where a "shiny" substance is located. The commentator suspects pine tar as the substance at the :31 mark. Second video is Red Sox against Yankees. Same move to arm.
