Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. 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:...

  2. "10 Things Major League Baseball Won't Tell You"

    Its a pretty interesting article . http://finance.yahoo.com/personal-finance/article/103734/10-Things-Major-League-Baseball-Won't-Tell-You;_ylt=AmIbwdp6rfMZ69RyA3lNBR5O7sMF?mod=weekend Some of the points made : A study by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida showed the number of Hispanic players has doubled since 1990, up to 29.4% as of last season.

  8. Torii Hunter likes Washington and Atlanta as preferred destinations

    As some of you may have already seen... I saw this little tidbit on rotoworld. http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=MLB&id=2470 "I always talk to my wife about being interested in playing in front of the African-American fans and trying to get the African Americans back to playing the game," he said. "If I go to Atlanta or D.C. and make a difference that way, I would love it. Trust me -- D.C. is very interesting to me as well as Atlanta." Hunter also...

  10. How would Yankee fans feel if the sawx were to win the WS?

    Honestly, once the Yankees were eliminated , I lost a lot of interest in the playoffs. I would prefer the sawx don't win, but if they were to win, it wouldn't be a gut punch. My main focus is on the Yanks and their winning. Once they lost, the eventual winner won't matter that much one way or the other. Of course, that might change if they did win and we had to listen to an off season of " new reign " comments. It might be different if they had eliminated us- but I felt this year that we would...

  16. Star-Spangled Banner broadcast?

    My father and I sat down to watch the game the other night (Sox-Cleveland), and we were both complaining about all the commercials. After they were finally done and the game started, he asked me if we'd somehow missed the singing of the national anthem, or if Fox just chose not to show it. It strikes me that it's been awhile since I've seen any broadcast of the singing of the Star-Spangled Banner. Of course, I usually don't catch the beginning of games, so who knows. Anyone else? ...

  20. An open letter to to the Cleveland Indians

    Dear Cleveland Indians, You recently dumped my favorite team from the playoffs (even if the media seems to think the Yankees lost more than you won). You deserve to advance, since you beat the Yankees in just about every way there is over those games. Sad as I am, I am really pulling for you to get your first championship in over a century. Please keep doing what you've been doing and take care of the Red Sox starting tomorrow night. Here's a list of things I'd like to see starting...
