Post anything related to baseball. If it doesn't fit in the Yankees Discussion forum, it fits here.
I have been a subscriber to DirecTV's MLB pass for the past few years, but now will be traveling at least half of the month, probably more, so I was looking for alternatives to following the Yankees every game. Has anyone signed up for the pass on MLB.com, which allows for access to audio for all games? I remember last season it was advertised as very cheap, like $20 for the whole season (Right now they have an offseason pass for 10$). That's worth it in my eyes, hopefully most of the hotels...
Thomas Michael Glavine was born on March 25, 1966 in Concord, MA.
Tom takes cake at 40
A common topic among sports writers has been not only the ban of steroid but amphetamines. It seems that this may have a much larger impact. During the game yesterday, Michael Kay mentioned that Tampa may carry 12 pitchers. Basically it seems the manager believe that pitchers are going to break down much earlier. I am curious as to what effect this will have in New York.
Saw this item in a Daily News Gossip column:
"Congrats to ex-Yank David Cone and his wife, Lynn. The couple, who've been trying for two years to get pregnant, are going to have a boy. Cone joined fellow '96 heroes Tino Martinez, Graeme Lloyd and Pat Kelly at the bash that marketing guru Tim O'Neill threw in Tampa. Meanwhile, George Steinbrenner has been showing his softer side. We hear he paid for the Yankee Stadium wedding of famed blind sportscaster Eddie Lucas to Allison Pheifle. The Boss...
Per WEEI, ESPN, etc the Red Sox have claimed Hee Seop Choi off waivers from the Dodgers.
He's young, cheap, with good power and discipline, and even has an option left.
Pretty simple question. Does the current manager of the Japanese WBC team, Sadaharu Oh, belong in the Hall of Fame?
Among many notable achievements, he hit 868 career home runs in Japan.
What do you say, "Yay," or "nay?"
Personally, I think he belongs.
How will this affect your fantasy leagues? MLB seems to be getting greedy. Not only are they claiming they own players likeness but their stats also.
Public domain will be the argument.
He may have gone too far this time.
I think the dispute was related to this.
No word if charges will be pressed.

The only thing I can really see against it is the threat of injury. However, players get injured all of the time in spring training, so it's not like this is going increase the odds that much. In exchange for a few more innings played by MLB starters, we get some interesting baseball on national television to watch in March. I'd much rather see that than spring training games.
Sure it's a new tournament and I don't really care right now who wins it, but I also don't really care who...
Despite the fact that I put a little money on Cuba at the start of this tourney at 9/1, they have been sloppy in the field, and on the bases. I never anticipated that for a team that plays together as a unit as often as they do. I like Japan with Daisuke Matsuzaka on the mound. Here's hoping he parlays his success in this tourney directly into pinstripes at the earliest opportunity.

Always the value player, I like a small play on Venezuela based on the strength of their pitching.
IT specifically mentions steroids- so saying that there was no rule against it in the late 90's/early 2000's is BS
Mets' Floyd having problems with kidneys, but has to wait for diagnosis
BY DAVID LENNON
March 9, 2006
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - The memory that haunts Cliff Floyd most about his dad's battle with kidney disease is how rapidly he was transformed by the illness. Now the Mets' outfielder is worried that the same thing could be happening to him.
We'll find out soon enough if this is serious or not.
The Yankees as we all know have had a bad rap for trading their minor leaguers for veteran talent. A couple of big names can be found on that list but, have the Yanks really missed out on a player they got rid of? My memory fails me but, I can only think of Mark Prior (always hurt) and I think Willy Mo Peņa... Navarro, Millwood? These guys have been just Ok... Prior is always hurt. Can you guys of think of guys the Yanks should've kept around?
I'm headed to Petco for the WBC Semi Finals on Saturday. Based on what I've seen thusfar, I expect to witness one of the most compelling days of baseball imaginable (I've been to six Yankee and several other playoff games).
Both Korea/Japan games were characterized by the animosity that can only develop over centuries of contempt (clearly documented in history). On the sporting front the rivalry reminds me of the Yankees/Sox pre-2004. Japan has been surprised and humiliated by defeat at...
for actually having the nerve to pitch inside. so cuba plays old school baseball. so what ?? ortiz showboats yesterday because somebody actually pitched him inside. didnt just let him hang over the plate w/o any reprecusions like 90 percent of baseball does. how dare they not let him hang over the plate. and not just him but all these guys. theyre exagerrating it saying the cubans are throwing at their heads. no theyre not. theyre just pitching up and in. like when clemens pitched up and in to...
Bad news, obviously :(
Interesting that the Nats web site still uses a Montreal URL (right word?)
Halladay agrees to extension through 2010
"DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Toronto pitcher Roy Halladay signed a $40 million, three-year contract extension Thursday, the latest in a series of big-money moves for the Blue Jays."
Just thought I would share this breaking news. The pitcher I wanted the Yanks to pick up the most is now locked up until 2010.
I know that Pettitte has battled injury issues since leaving the Yankees but I'm really surprised to hear that retirement has even crossed his mind. Just seems early to be thinking about retirement - usually even players with injury problems want to fight though and keep playing as long as they can. Maybe all of Clemens retirement talk has got to him. :lol:
There's that and a whole lot more. He goes off.
