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...

  2. 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.

  4. 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...

  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.

  7. Rules About Inning-Ending Double Plays and Runs Allowed To Score

    If the batter grounds into a double play with both outs being forceouts, a run cannot score. If the first out of a double play is a ball being caught, and the second out is a runner tagged out attempting to advance to second or third, the run counts if it was scored before the last out. If first baseman Justin Smoak had caught Kevin Pillar's throw, Ellsbury would have been doubled off first base to end the inning. Ken Singleton said that Gardner's run would have counted if he scored in time...

  8. Most Players With 20 Home Runs In A Season and More History For Jean Segura

    Yesterday Michael Kay said that the next player to reach 20 home runs would be the 104th player to do that in 2016, which would be the most ever in one season. Gary Sanchez had a chance to be that 104th player when he struck out last night. In the first inning tonight he homered, extending the record to 105 players. Arizona's Jean Segura, who is known for stealing first base, hit a leadoff home run against Washington's Max Scherzer to be the 104th player this season to hit at least 20 home...

  12. 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

  13. 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...

  15. 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.

  16. 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?
