Post anything related to baseball. If it doesn't fit in the Yankees Discussion forum, it fits here.
Since there have been a couple queries about message boards for other teams in the past couple days, I thought it might be useful to have some sort of list of good fan sites around the MLB.
My goal is to have only two or three sites per team--it's not meant to include every forum out there. I also prefer to post forum sites over blogs, although if a blog has a game thread or is really, really good, I'll include it. Thanks for all the suggestions!
The following announcement is specific for the Yankees, but tickets to all MLB games, in additon to all other sporting, concert, or show events are also available. Check out http://tickets.nyyfans.com to see if we have tickets to the event you're looking for.
So you want to see the Yankees, ay? Are you frustrated by the lack of quality seats available from the Yankees Box Office or Ticketmaster, don't want to take out a second mortgage to buy...
Please see this thread for details: http://forums.nyyfans.com/showthread.php?p=5924926#post5924926. :)
Can anyone tell me what PIT/GS stands for pertaining to pitchers?
A friend told me that he heard that The Rangers were talking to John Rocker! Has any one else heard this? Picture this: Rocker and Everett on the same team! What a scary thought! :scared:
Stan Bostic ? He says that he played for The Red Sox but I'm trying to find out if he's pulling my leg or not. I didn't ask what year/years he played for them but he's 49 years old. Just curious.
Is he out for the post season?
If so may I have a link to the article?
Rumors has it that when he was a Red Sox player he got very mad one day or something like that and threw in the river a piano, for which he loved to play. Thus that is where and how the curse of the Bambino lies. It also has it that scuba divers are in the river looking for this paino so that maybe the curse will finally come to an end.
Has anybody else heard of this?
I find it rather funny that the father gets off scotch free and his kid recieves all the punishment.

Tell me I am reading it wrong?
The boy's father, William Ligue Jr., 35, also was charged. He has pleaded innocent to three felony counts of aggravated battery and one felony count of mob action.

Some pitchers have trouble finding the plate at the start of spring training. Ismael Valdez had trouble finding the right ballpark.
When he arrived at camp Thursday, he showed up at the Oakland Athletics' site, not the Anaheim Angels' facility.
The 27-year-old right-hander took a wrong turn en route to his first workout at Tempe Diablo Stadium. He got lost and wound up a few miles away in Phoenix.
After getting directions, he arrived 20 minutes late for a team meeting and had to...
The 3/26 issue of The New Yorker has a great piece by Roger Angell on Coney, "Before the Fall - Can David Cone Find His Way Back."
It's a teaser for the book Roger is publishing on David in May called, "A Pitcher's Story: Innings with David Cone."
Out of curiosity I just took a look at Nellie's stats so far:

TORONTO (AP) -- Large pieces of metal siding and insulation fell from the roof of SkyDome onto the field Thursday, causing the Toronto Blue Jays to postpone their game against the Kansas City Royals.
The retractable roof was being opened when two of the three panels collided, causing a tear of about 20 feet.
"Some very big pieces of metal fell on to the field,'' Blue Jays president Paul Godfrey...

The Red Sox' 8-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals yesterday at Fenway Park was literally a comedy of
The Red Sox committed five errors and the Royals had one. But Red Sox relief pitchers Tim Wakefield
and Rod Beck were not amused by the antics of two fans who rushed onto the field in their misguided
The infighting is starting. Can anyone say meltdown?...
Carl Everett was critical of manager Jimy Williams after the game for failing to have a set lineup.
"No one knows who is going to play,'' Everett said. "You come to the ballpark and you don't know who's in the lineup. It's tough to play that way. It is tough for a guy not knowing who's in the lineup. Hitting is very mental.''
Somehow Everett and mental are two words that belong together :lol:
Clubhouse rancor has erupted in the White Sox clubhouse. Pitching ace David Wells has gone public with his feelings about Frank Thomas's unwillingness to play through his triceps injury for fear of embarassing himself. Wells blasted the Big Hurt on his weekly radio show on Chicago's ESPN 1000: "If he is afraid to embarrass himself, then he is embarrassing himself right there with that comment. If you don't...
Bad for the Twins; good for us - we play them this week:
Minnesota Twins designated hitter David Ortiz sustained a broken right wrist while sliding into home plate during Friday night's game against the Royals. He will go on the disabled list and be out at least six weeks.
Wow - two of them! I see they shared the steroids :lol:

There were about a dozen players and two reporters in the Mets' clubhouse yesterday when an angry, booming voice erupted from one corner and disrupted the calm. Armando Benitez, shirtless and wearing long underwear and with a gold chain around his neck, complained loudly about teammates who had been quoted anonymously while criticizing Timo Perez.
"We can't do that," Benitez said, waving his arms and eliciting...

A fungo bat is to Jimy Williams as an exercise wheel is to a hamster. It keeps him busy. Every day Williams, the Boston Red Sox' manager, loads the back pockets of his uniform pants with baseballs, like a squirrel filling his cheeks with nuts, and mindlessly hammers one grounder after another to assorted infielders during pregame drills. This exercise not only feeds
his ravenous work ethic but also spares him the apparent...
If the Sux are getting on each other now, when they're winning, things are going to get really ugly come October :lol:
Everett's desire is questioned

CLEVELAND - Trot Nixon had plenty to be pleased about last night after smashing a
two-run homer off Bartolo Colon to spark a dramatic, come-from-behind 5-4 victory
I think Carl's head needs to be examined more than his knee does :lol:
Everett says media owes Nixon apology
BOSTON -- Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Everett says the media is to blame for the recent controversy between him and teammate Trot Nixon.
Earlier this week Nixon told reporters that Everett needs to work harder to get back on the field.
I think this is sad. I went to all 3 Yankees Division Series games and it was a sellout crowd each day.

ATLANTA (AP) -- College student Adam Brand didn't have to wheel and deal with scalpers or flip through the newspaper to find a ticket to the NL championship series.
In 1919, the Red Sox sold Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees, one year after their last championship, giving rise to the phrase, ``Curse of the Bambino.''
(John) Henry had a different view.
"We prefer to think of it as a spell which we intend to break,'' he said.
I'll get on him again once baseball begins, but right now I'm a Bobby V. fan:

Outside the redbrick firehouse of Squad 288 and Hazmat 1 in Maspeth, Queens, you can look across the Long Island Expressway to the Manhattan skyline. And as firefighters assembled there for roll call that warm September morning, Kevin Smith saw a burst of flame high in the north tower of the World Trade Center.

A new DVD has been released called "Boston Red Sox: 100 Years of Baseball History." Surprisingly they interview Rocket, and boy does he stick it to them :P He's shown speaking of his 20K masterpiece against the M's in April of '86... and he's wearing his Yankee cap :evil: :lol:
Are they crazy? They want to give up their #2 starter, Appier, for Vaughn. That means the Mets will have to go after another starter. Appier is owed $33MM, Vaughn is owed $50MM on his contract. Money aside, Vaughn missed all of last season after rupturing a biceps tendon (ouch!) and who knows how much he weighs now. :P It also means they'd have to delay moving Pizza-boy to first base.
They've really sunk to a new low this time :lol:
