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: 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...

  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...

    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.

  8. Rob Manfred thinks late inning relievers are too good.

    I wasn't aware this was even a problem. The man sounds like a video game developer wanting to nerf an overpowered weapon. http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/17118662/mlb-commissioner-rob-manfred-says-looking-possible-limits-use-relief-pitchers-games

  9. 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...

  11. 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.

  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. Greatest Play in Cleveland Indians History Last Night!

    Tyler Naguin hit an Inside the Park WALK OFF HR after the Tribe tied it 2-2 when the previous hitter, Jose Ramirez, tied the score with a home run of his own. The Indians have NOT had a walk off HR since 1916 - 100 years! It was poetic justice as Trevor Bauer struck out 13 in 8 innings while walking only 2 but gave up a 2 run homer in the first.

  14. MLB Strike Zone Changing / No More IBB

    NOTE: I tried clarifying the title to indicate eliminating the need for 4 pitches on the IBB, but it's not working. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/report--mlb-nearing-changes-to-strike-zone-and-intentional-walks-003454802.html I don't like either change. The umpires should call it as the rule is written now. I don't like the free pass either. Crazy things happen and its being eliminated to save what? 2-3 minutes a game?

  19. Baseball's "Unwritten Rules"

    Deadspin got a guest contribution from former MLB pitcher and (in the baseball world of literature) renowned author, Dirk Hayhurst on the unwritten rules of baseball. It's a pretty enlightened view from a guy who once played at the MLB level. This excerpt is his conclusion: Calling it like it is.

    Did I just hear a rumor that Bonds is going to be the hitting coach for the Marlins? This is the state that gave A-Rod his Drugs....a perfect spot for Bonds! Why would Mattingly want him??
