Forum: Around The Majors

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

  1. The 2007 FOX Postseason Thread™

    In anticipation of the LCS and the World Series afterwards... Let's get this kicked off properly (from firejoemorgan.com - thanks 26 and counting): Zero > One Several of you sent in this bizarro-world pearl of wisdom from my close friend Tim McCarver during today's Fox broadcast: "We had our friends at Stats, Inc. check and see whether more multi-run innings came with a lead off homer or a lead off walk. You would think that a lead off walk would lead to more big innings than a...

  2. The National League - What the hell is going on over there?

    So we are at baseball's final weekend for the regular season. Not one team has clinched a playoff spot. 7 teams are still in play for 4 spots. One team has almost fully collapsed. One team would have collapsed if the other team was intelligent. And another team has suddenly won 11 games in a row. A possible 5 way tie after Sunday? Huh? What is all this? I cannot figure it out the NL nor handicap this finish. At this rate, the playoffs might be delayed by a week. Damn you NL. Can...

  3. The 2007 Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread

    Well, soon enough we'll all be agonizing over who to start/bench and add/drop. I already have to start thinking about a draft next month so here is this year's thread. I have to decide on my 5 keepers soon. It's a simple keeper league, no worries about where the keepers were drafted, no limit on years kept, etc. Here are the only 8 from my team that would even be considered ( <table style="width: 750px; margin-left: 0pt; margin-right: 0pt;" id="statTable0" class="teamtable" border="0"...

  4. 2007 MLB Predictions

    I looked around but haven't located a thread for prediciting how the 2007 season will turn out and with Opening Day less than two weeks away, I thought I'd start one. I'll keep mine short and simple: American League East 1.) New York Yankees 2.) Boston Red Sox (WC) 3.) Toronto Blue Jays 4.) Baltimore Orioles 5.) Tampa Bay Devil Rays

  5. AL CY Young Discussion

    So, as the final month gets underway, I was thinking about the AL MVP but since A-rod has all but wrapped that up, I think the more interesting race and discussion revolves around the AL CY Young Award. There seems to be 5 Candidates as indicated in the poll. I am not a stats Guru by any means (I understand WHIP, that's as far as it goes) but who does everyone think will wind up winning the award?

  6. Barry Bonds not returning to Giants next season

    From BarryBonds.com Tim Kurkjian said no other team would want him. He said he asked around at the All-Star game.

  7. "We’ve got so much talent I think sometimes we get bored.” - C. Delgado

    Strange article since they would talk in very different tones after today. Some quotes below: Published: September 25, 2007 This article was published in the October 1, 2007, edition of The New York Observer. Randolph insisted his team is in playoff mode with a week to go, but by the accounts of several players, a pall of indifference settled on the clubhouse. First baseman Carlos Delgado told WFAN, “I think at times we can get a little careless. We’ve got so much talent I think...

  9. AL vs NL

    If anyone knows,the tie breaker rules appear to be different in AL vs NL IE: If the sawx&Yanks were tied at end of season(like 2005)with identical records(for 1st place) head to head play would decide the winner..But in the NL IF the mets&phils HAD tied there would be a 1 gasme playoff? do I have this right & If I do why the descrepency?

  12. Red Sox "Nation" Presidential Election

    I stumbled upon this today- Have you guys heard of this? Is this a joke? They actually had a debate with Tim Russert while Larry Luchino and Tom Werner showed up to listen. Huh? Does this seem weird to anyone? They actually charge $14.95 to become a card-carrying member of Red Sox "Nation." How self-absorbed is that? And where, exactly, is Red Sox "Nation?" Massachussetts? I live in Nebraska and people refer to the fanbase as "Husker Nation," which always makes me wonder, "where does...

  13. AJ Pierzynski gets 2 years/12.5 million

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3042419 Link to his extension. If someone who is hitting .263 with an OBP of .309 is worth that much, Posada may get 14 million a year. Surprising that the White Sox gave so much money to AJ.....I don't feel he is worth it.

  15. Micah Owings: best hitting year for a pitcher ever?

    i was looking at Micah Owings' hitting stats (.339/.355/.695/1.050/156+) and i cant help but think this is the greatest hitting year for a pitcher ever. were there other hitting years for pitchers that were that astounding? Livan Hernandez, Mike Hampton, Dontrelle Willis and Carlos Zambrano havent even come close to a 156 OPS+

  17. Interesting article on baseball collapses

  18. The Peter Gammons thread...

    This HOF'er says and writes so many things that are interesting to discuss, I thought I'd start a topic... First topic: Joba -- Youkilis incident I heard him on Mike and Mike in the morning that Friday saying he did not think it was on purpose and didn't mention anything about A-Rod. Then in his blog he writes this:
