Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. Mental Giants they are NOT!

    If the Giants do not recover from one of the worst chokes in World Series history last night (Boston 1986 being the champ) and go on to lose tonight (which I predict will happen, Angels 13-2), then they can point their fingers at none other than Dusty Baker as being one of the major reasons why they fell short. I like Dusty (despite being a Dodger forever), but he has not managed well in this series. He has made many critical mistakes, some have not cost them a game, but some have, such as...

  2. Selig bans children from dugout in WS next year

    It's a good thing Eckstein got a chance to play in the WS before the ban goes into effect:D (Sorry, I know its cheesier than Wisconsin but I just had to get it out of the way;) )

  3. Question about the MVP award.

    I've read some arguements on this board and a few others. Some people have said the Bonds should get the MVP. I thought the losing team could not have an MVP winner. If that's true, is that convention, or the official rule? I mean, how could you win an MVP on a losing team? I guess you could argue both ways, but to me it seems if your team lost, no matter how great you were, it's time for another MVP on the winning team, even if they were worse. After all, they won.

  5. Question about All-Star Game Managers

    I've always wondered, if a manager goes to the World Series, but f/whichever reason, isn't w/that same team by the following ASG, who manages that league's team? If he's w/another team, does the new manager of that team manage the ASG? Thx!!! :D :) Brad

  6. Scioscia suggests shortening season

    Scioscia suggests shortening season BY KEN PETERS Associated Press Oct. 27, 2002 6:56 p.m. http://foxsports.lycos.com/content/view?contentId=728956 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) With 30 spring games, 162 in the regular season and a three-round postseason that has gone to a World Series Game 7, the Anaheim Angels' and San Francisco Giants' pitching has worn thin. Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia has a suggestion: fewer games. "I think with three rounds of playoffs, there's a strong case to...

  8. Did you see Bonds tonight?

    Note to Mr. Bonds: USE YOUR DAMN GLOVE WHEN FIELDING! Honestly, I'm just about fed up with this guy's attitude- so nonchalant. Nice HRs, but jesus, he really messed up that play that opened up the floodgates for Anaheim. However, in spite of his play, I do believe he is the hands down series MVP should the Giants win tommorrow. Thoughts?

  11. Nice articles about Anaheim and the series

    October 28, 2002 7th Heaven By Tim Keown ESPN The Magazine http://espn.go.com/magazine/keown_20021028.html ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Victory has a new sound, and it's louder than ever before. It's an incessant mixture of ThunderStix and hysterical humans, and it translates into the sound of 45,000 overinflated basketballs being dribbled inside your cranium. This, apparently, is the sound a franchise makes upon ending a 41-year, uninterrupted stretch of nonchampionship baseball. Victory, as...

  12. Baseball will curtail dugout daycare

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/news/2002/1028/1452178.html ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The kiddie corps which populated the San Francisco Giants' dugout during the World Series won't be repeated, according to Major League Baseball officials. Darren Baker and other youngsters won't have as much dugout freedom. Commissioner Bud Selig told the New York Daily News on Monday that, starting next year, baseball will issue a new set of rules on who can and can't be in the dugout. According to the newspaper,...

  16. Will The Angels Become The Next Florida Marlins?

    Does this have a familiar ring to it? Wild card team wins in all with pretty much a team of non super stars? It sure does. 1997 as a matter of fact. The Florida Marlins were the first wild card team in MLB history to win the World Series and the next year their owner dismantled the team and they went from the penthouse to the outhouse just that quickly. They turned a thriving stadium into a ghost town. The question remains. Will the Angels go down that same path? For Angels fans they better...
