Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. Indians greeted by huge crowd at airport....NOT

    One lone fan was at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport at about 4 a.m. to greet the team. Barb Kovalski was cheering loudly in support of their season. She wanted them to know this team was loved and that she represented all the fans who couldn't stay up. "I couldn't be more proud of our Indians," Kovalski said. http://www.newsnet5.com/sports/14391790/detail.html

  2. The Red Sox--the Darlings of the New Century?

    In tonight's NY Times, Tyler Kepner wrote in reference to Curt Schilling: He will try to give the Red Sox, the darlings of the new century, yet another victory in the World Series. I can't believe I'm reading that sentence in the NY Times.

  3. Red Sox Coverage (Local)

    Why is the New York market treating the Red Sox like a local team? I understand it's the World Series but enough already. M&MD been talking a ton of Red Sox and the 20/20 updates have pressers from Francona/Schilling. New York is the only market with a bias against its own teams.

  5. Torre Asked to Join Buck and McCarver

    From the NY Times: Joe Torre had a chance to reach the 2007 World Series, after all. On Friday, the day after Torre turned down the Yankees’ offer to manage for another season, Fox called his agent to see if Torre would be interested in joining Joe Buck and Tim McCarver in the broadcast booth for the World Series. “Joe was flattered to be asked but respectfully declined because he has made some family commitments,” Dan Bell, Fox Sports’s vice president for communications, said in an e-mail...

  9. Is George Mitchell independent enough?

    Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere, but I just read about how Mitchell is a director of the Red Sox, and the chairman of Walt Disney - who owns ESPN. How has this been allowed to happen? What's to stop Mitchell from from calling out 10 Yankees and 2 Sox players? How can MLB think he's going to be totally impartial when his report could very well spell doom for ESPN (owned by Disney)? This is another instance of Bud Selig knowing nothing about running a sport. ...

  10. Millar throwing out first pitch in ALCS

    Again, this might have been posted elsewhere, but probably in the thread which shall not be named so I don't know. How do you Oriole fans feel about this? Clearly this guy never left Boston and would much rather be there then Baltimore. OK maybe that's not so much of a stretch to believe. However, I think it's low balling your own team, a division rival no less, to go and root for and cheer lead for another team. That was the happiest he's looked since 2004. What are the odds he has...

  11. Do You Care Who Wins the ALCS?

    I probably won't be watching the games this weekend--I need to have a life again--but I'm rooting for the Indians to win this thing, even though they did beat our team. Who are you rooting for to win?

  15. The Official "Go Indians!" Thread

    Usually when my team gets knocked out of the playoffs I can't wait for the team that beat them to lose. However this year I am fully behind the Cleveland Indians. Not just because I don't want the Red Sox to win, but watching this team for 4 games showed me how much they want the title and have the talent to get it. Plus it'd be nice to say the Yankees lost to the eventual champions. And so Sox fans can STFU.

  16. A-Rod vs Pujols

    A-Rod is obviously one of those guys who comes around only a few times. He's a great player, but I tend to wonder when people start saying that he's the best in the game right now. I would make an argument for Pujols having a slight edge (despite his off year this season), and I was wondering what everyone else thought. Some relevant statistics (no fancy ones as I'm too tired to look up anything beyond the basics) Career Average/OBP/Slugging/OPS+ A-Rod: .306/.389/.578, 148 Pujols:...
