I was wondering why Roberts was calling it bad baserunning. 🤔

Notice the Orioles did it this inning.  I predict they are going to have mandatory sliding next year.

So BRob is talking about positioning in the infield and it occurs to me, Norby is being guided by Gunnar, to refine DP teamwork - and yet, Gunnar is still learning himself.

 

 

Isn't that one of the things an IF coach should be involved in, especially where the players are inexperienced?

Here's an update from yesterday's Field of Schemes about the Rays' progress in getting a new stadium. They've only had about ten years to try to get this right:

  • The folks at No Home Run in Tampa Bay have commissioned a poll on the Rays stadium plans, and say it shows that while 51% of voters supported them initially, that figure fell to 38% after respondents heard “key financial details.” This turns out to be: that Rays owner Stu Sternberg would get stadium land at a price that appears to be below market value, that he wouldn’t pay property taxes, that the city would be on the hook for $494 million (including interest) while Sternberg would keep all revenues from the stadium including non-baseball revenue, and that he would not share profits on the sale of the team with the city, all of which are undeniably accurate — all polls are hot garbage, it’s true, but this one seems as legit as any.

Good on the tax payers.

The Mets/Phillies game ended 40 minutes ago.

In this modern age, how can our booth be reporting the game is in the 9th inning?

I guess the same way they can be reporting that last night's home run derby contestant is today's.

I followed this pretty closely for a while, but I gave up a few years ago. It seemed things kept chaging, with the only constant that Sternberg was giving very little and taking a lot.

You are probably right but eventually some city is going to give him everything he wants.

The best was when he wanted to put it in Ybor.
