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. 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. 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...

  6. 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.

    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.

  18. Winning Percentages and Openers

    Last year, teams went 33-33 when their starter pitched exactly 1 inning. Ten years earlier in 2008, teams went 3-10 (.231) when their starter pitched exactly 1 inning, which means it happened over five times as often in 2018 as in 2008. In addition, since many 1 inning starts in 2018 were not because the starter stunk, the winning percentage in those situations was over double in 2018 than in 2008. Ten years before that in 1998, teams went 2-14 (.125) when their starter pitched exactly 1...

  19. Questions About WAR: Comparing Seasons and Points Within Each Season

    I have two questions about WAR: 1. A season has 1,000 WAR. Since there are 2,430 games, a replacement level team has a record of 1,430-3,430 (.294). However, if the amount of games changed, the amount of WAR or the winning percentage by a replacement level team would need to change. For example, 100 years ago in 1919, MLB had a record of 1,113-1,113-10 ties. Taking out the 10 ties and changing 1,000 wins to losses would give a replacement level team a record of 113-2,113 (.051). They...

  20. Getting Hit By Pitches a Batter Swings At

    Cano was hit on the hand in the first inning and left, but it wasn't a hit by pitch because he swung. Lagares pinch-hit during the plate appearance and walked. Gary Cohen said that he thinks that when a batter is hit and then swings as a reaction to being hit, it should count as a hit by pitch, and he said that it happened another time this year. I agree. I think that a hit by pitch should end the play at that time, and if the batter didn't swing before then, it should be a hit by pitch. ...
