  1. The Wildcard Race

  2. The Wildcard Race

    I used to pine for easier matchups, but now I prefer the team to just beat whomever is in their path. If it's going to happen, have it happen like that.
  3. Holding Runners on 1B

    This could be why he has a foot on the bag, then. To give him a boundary or point of reference. I recall in the KC series in 2014 where we had that unorthodox choreography with Pearce to try and slow down the speedy KC runners. Here's an article on it from the series: "Orioles become imposition to Royals running game"... KC has just one stolen base as Showalter employs first baseman off the bag
  4. Holding Runners on 1B

    Would the 1st baseman need to be standing in foul territory for this to work? Would that put him in the wrong place, fielding-wise, if the pitcher throws to the batter and not 1st? He'd be out of position of the ball is put in play, no? I think it's easier for the middle infielders because everything is coming to them... The throw from home, the runner, even the bag for the shortstop who is moving that way. For the first baseman holding the runner, the ball may still be out in play and they need to be able to cut down on the whole between 1st and 2nd by stepping into that area of the pitcher doesn't throw over. It makes some sense for throws behind the runner by the catcher, but that's an awful lot of footwork around the bag.
  5. De Aza comes to mind. Both provided a spark too.
  6. Crazy stat.

    brach and givens?
  7. O's streak now at 13 games

    Is this a report I can get an RSS for?
  8. Any pop ups or redirects today?

    not so far today on my phone (Android Nexus 5 running lollipop) but it was multiple times daily prior to that. Sent to some facebook looking survey with a pop up of its own. </Russia>
  9. DFA Ubaldo

    It would be nice to trade him for something that had a repeatable motion. Srsly though, I was hoping to log on this morning to find the issue has been resolved.
  10. Manny furious after the game

    The only appropriate response then is for Buck to charge Farrell, or what Frobby says below.
  11. Manny furious after the game

    The crowd started the applause. Some Red Sox joined in because of it. You know players on that team were thinking... oh fudge...are we still doing this now with Manny?
  12. Barnes gets four game ban

    It can't really be more if the Manager, or someone on his staff makes the call to do it. The player could be afraid not to in that case. Managers need to know they'll get suspended too, so they can make it clear to the team to not go coconut hunting. Until they are implicated (either for making the call themselves or allowign a staff member to do it for them) the total suspension won't feel adequate.
  13. Mitt distance traveled

    Full disclosure, this is not Vasquez or Martin, but is essentially what each frame attempt feels like to me...
  14. Mitt distance traveled

    This is what I'm getting at. At some point, perhaps with some of the less subtle catchers, it should have a negative impact instead of zero impact over the course of a game/season. I actually like the move when selectively used. But seeing a guy like Martin or Vasquez bring 3 out of 4 pitches into the zone gets under my skin. I don't watch other games, so maybe the are worse offenders.
