  2. Explosion of Rays fans?

    Surely I'm not the only one to notice that all of a sudden everyone is a Rays fan. I wonder how long that will last, given the likelihood of them finishing 3rd this year.

  3. Society for American Baseball Research membership drive

    SABR is starting a membership renewal drive right now such that joining now gets you full membership through December 31, 2010.

In short: you don't need to have any special credentials to be a SABR member, you just have to love the game of baseball.

  4. Colorado Rockies with chance to take NL West!

    That was some game tonight! I like the Rockies because I like Troy Tulowitzki -- and this is corny, I know -- because Tulowitzi idolizes Jeter. I like the Dodgers because I like Joe Torre, still. But I can't stand Manny Ramirez. So it was rather sweet to see Manny strike out with men on and the Dodgers down a run -- his third strikeout of the game and his sixth in a row! Man. He is in a slump and has dragged the whole team down with him. Two games left to play and the Rockies are...

  9. Jim Rice rips Jeter, A-Rod, Manny during speech to Little Leaguers

    Speaking to players before the start of the Little League World Series, the new baseball Hall of Famer said today’s major-leaguers are too focused on individual goals and getting big contracts. “You see a Manny Ramirez, you see an A-Rod (Alex Rodriguez), you see (Derek) Jeter ... Guys that I played against and with, these guys you’re talking about cannot compare,” Rice said to Little Leaguers gathered in the cafeteria. We didn’t have the baggy uniforms. We didn’t have the dreadlocks,”...

  13. Marty Foster.......

    For anyone who missed today's Yankees/Orioles game, Marty Foster (the home plate umpire) ejected A-Rod and Girardi after A-Rod was called out on strikes with two outs and the bases loaded. And, of course, the stories that we heard from A-Rod and Foster were very conflicting. Here's the story if you'd like to read it on yankees.com http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20090913&content_id=6935634&vkey=news_nyy&fext=.jsp&c_id=nyy Here's my problem with the situation.

  14. MVP and Cy Young Awards

    We've come to the end of the regular season. There are about two weeks more of regular season ball to be played, but some of the big awards have already been given away. This thread will contain discussion about all the major awards, not just one specifically (or one player's candidacy, specifically). Here are my Award winners. First I'll list who I think should win, then I'll list who I think the voters will elect. AL ROY: My choice: Andrew Bailey, OAK Writer's choice: Gordon Beckham,...

  15. The future of the Rays

    Well, they are not officially dead yet, but given the fact that Tampa Bay has only about a 5% chance of making the playoffs according to Baseball Prospectus, I think it is safe to say the defending AL Champs are done for the year. I remember after last year's success a lot of fans and media thought the Rays were going to be a force for years to come. However, I don't know about anyone else but I am not nearly as high on this team as many others. I am not saying they are going to fall...

  16. Ichiro and 3000 MLB hits

    Ichiro currently has 1989 hits in the MLB, accumulated over 9-injury free seasons. He is 35 years old. The fewest games he has played in a season is 157, twice. While people like to note that he has already obtained over 3000 hits in his career (combined between Japan the U.S.), does he have a chance at 3000 hits in the MLB? One might not think so, given his age, but it's not like we see any sign of decline right now...; He currently sports a .359 BA. He's clearly in excellent shape. ...

    Ooooohhhh, first the Beatles re-mastered gets released, now this! My ears and nipples explode in delight! :rockin: http://soxblog.projo.com/2009/09/tim-mccarver-ca.html Fox Sports baseball analyst Tim McCarver is a guy who takes a lot of heat -- particularly here in Boston, where many people seem to think he has an anti-Red Sox agenda. While I've never felt that way, I believe that I already get to hear McCarver quite enough, thank you, during his regularly scheduled baseball...

  19. Giants / Rockies race

    I'm a little surprised at the absence of a wildcard race thread. The NL wild card could get real interesting starting tonight. I'm hoping the MLB channel will have this game in its entirety. As a side note, what a treat to hear Vin Sculley this past Saturday doing the Dodger /Giant game. He is still, by far, the best in the business. IMO no one comes close.
