Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. Annoying Things about TV Baseball Coverage

    OK so the the title is misleading, I only have one thing but I'm sure you guys have others. What I can't stand is where they post the pitch speed on TV. Why do they have to put it over the damn pitch count?? If I look away from the scoreline to watch the delivery and I forget the balls and strikes, all I see is "80 mph". Why the heck wouldn't they post the speed over the outs instead, that doesn't change as much. Am I the only one who gets annoyed about this?

  2. Missed calls prompt umpire switch for World Series

    http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gZ1zPNSpCS04qiFWVLVyK_YuFAOgD9BGDKPG0 Turns out that CB Bucknor was scheduled to work the WS. Not sure I'm crazy about Joe West being there but I'm glad MLB at least felt the need to do something.

  3. Pedro's Post Game Press Conference

    I was just about to compliment Pedro on a good post game interview. He actually sounded great and was pretty decent the way he described how he pitched and how The Yankees played....then, he goes on to whine about some drunken fan who was cursing him while he had his young daughter next to him. Oh PLEASE! You played for Boston, for goodness sake. They EAT their young up there. What a jerk! And then he throws in several times how he was under the weather. Yeah, under the Teixeira and...

  5. Mike Scioscia: Exposed

    No, this is not about Mike Scioscia posing nude anywhere. The media likes to pretend like this guy is a freaking genius, as though he were some master puppeteer pulling the strings ever so gingerly and with such precision to propel his team effortlessly forward. Well this series shattered that image to all hell. How can anyone think this guy is a good on-field manager after this? For all that we knock Girardi for, at least Girardi would never pinch hit for our hottest hitter with Maicer...

  8. Cards New Hitting Coach: Mark McGwire

    You read that right. Cardinals re-signed LaRussa and hired the disgraced Big Mac as their hitting coach. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2009/10/cards-hire-mcgwire-as-hitting-coach.html

  9. Activities Near Ballparks

    We went to the Babe Ruth Museum last time we were at Camden Yards, and visited the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh this year when visiting the one-time "Steel City" when the Yankees played there in June. (They had pretty impressive rain too.) Any other favorite activities people like to partake in near major league baseball stadiums around the country? YANKEE BASEBALL!!!

  11. Dodger owner Frank McCourt fires soon to be ex-wife.

    http://ad.vu/kwpd http://www.dailybreeze.com/ci_13632476 In prior articles, it was stated that Frank was the sole owner of the Dodgers. Jamie is no doubt disputing that. Apparently as CEO she was more involved in the club than Frank. She's pretty educated (has a law degree among other degrees) so I was surprised to read that Frank was the sole owner. I wonder if that's some sort of MLB issue? Like maybe only one person can be listed as majority owner. Also, California is a...

  13. Your picks for AL Manager of the Year?

    I just posted my votes for AL Manager of the Year at Why I Like Baseball: http://www.whyilikebaseball.com/2009/10/if-i-voted-for-manager-of-the-year/ I gave Girardi an honorable mention because changing the culture of the Yankees clubhouse was a big piece of their success, and getting out from under Torre's shadow is a big step. But ultimately the award for me had to go to one off the guys who "did more with less" and that was Don Wakamatsu, Ron Washington, and Ron Gardenhire. ...

  15. Phils fans getting to cocky!

    I go to college in philie but I am a Yankee fan. The Phils fans here well everyone here think their guna win the WS again. last year they acted like it was special they here through playoffs. Now the fans and whole city thinks they are a dynasty. It driving me crazy how they think they are opted to win World Series again. That is why I would love for the Yanks to crush them. But does anyone else live by Phillie or know any Phils fans?

  16. The "Not Trying to Do Too Much" with the baseball cliches thread

    When did the phrase, "Not Trying to do Too Much" become THE baseball cliche? It is everywhere- including the women's college softball telecasts on ESPN. It has replaced a pitcher's stuff being "Electric" as the cliche in the game, circa 2005. Of course, a pitcher's stuff being "Electric" is a direct descendent of a pitcher's stuff being "Filthy" or "Nasty," circa 2001. Got a favorite baseball cliche? Don't "try to do too much," but let's hear it.
