WTF MLB is thinking with this new intentional walk rule...

Saving 10s off a game apparently. The commissioner is not happy the union won't let him implement other rules, such as a pitching timer and limiting mound visits, so he claims after next season he's just going to do it anyways

 

Baseball is not a fast sport. It gets its fans from tradition, history, and the love of the game. Trying to make it something it's not will ruin it

What did you end up going with? Got any pics to share of the new gear?


First time out with my new sticks. F'n crushing the ball! Still gotta play around a little with my distances, but man oh man, that was fun.

New club fever had me wanting a new driver, but mine still works.

Since it's not Thursday, this is going here: I'm at a bar watching the Rangers-Devils game, with the person next to me and the bartender jabbering about the Yankees and Mets non stop. I don't know which circle of hell this is, but it's one of them.

I wish I was there to stand behind you and jabber with the bartender and the guy next to you.

Let's just hope the game is close to the point where baseball isn't necessary

Easy enough to do. They replay them everyday on YES

 

How have the young guns looked, ubkev? I know Bird has had a good spring so far

They've been hitting. Sanchez is fine. Gleyber Torres will be very good 2 years from now. And there is still no pitching help.

Also, Matt Holiday has enormous forearms.

Went to the 1st time Buffalo hosted the NCAA 1st round of bouncy ball afk when Knight coached Texas Tech, but don't remember the court being up essentially against the boards in the visitor's corner. Anybody know when they started moving the court to a corner of the rink for the NCAAs?

I would imagine it would be so they could leverage the actual 100 level seats for 3 of the 4 sides, and only have temp bleachers for one side. Basically for concessions and ease of use. Although the off-center jumbotron always bothered me in those kinds of set ups.


Anyone following or watching to World Baseball Classic? Team USA just made it to the finals tonight against Puerto Rico - should be an exciting game :beer:

I don't think I've ever seen basketball set up that way at our arena.  The scoreboard is right over center court.

 

I've found it difficult to follow the WBC.  I don't know where it's televised (and I've never seen it on at a sports bar), the schedule is difficult to follow, etc.  But I do know about tonight's game and I hope to watch it.

WBC has been a good time. I've watched most of the games. I've got 5 Puerto Rican coworkers that I will see as soon as I get to work tonight, so there is a lot at stake for me in this game. We've all been talking a whole lot of ###### for the past week.

And Eleven, every game has been on MLB Network

Tuning in to the WBC final. Jim Kaat doing color commentary, looks like the crypt-keeper's older brother. I can remember him pitching for St. Louis. I am also old.

Let's hope this game is at least interesting.

Thst would be logical, but doesn't answer the question of when the practice began in the Mmarena.

Again, don't recall that as the set up the 1st time the building hosted the 1st round.

First pitch at 922 pm.  Jerks.

I know right? I got home at 9 expecting to catch the first pitch, knowing I would still have to say up well past midnight to finish. Then they did 22 minutes of b.s. fluff and first pitch at 9:22? why not start all that crap at 8:30 to start the game at 9?

 

But USA dominated that game from start to finish - way to go USA! My boy Stroman looked really good and avenged his poor showing against Puerto Rico in the pool play rounds.

Yeah, that sounds like fun.  No Puerto Ricans at my work or I would probably have been much more interested in the outcome.

He had it back for a minute in the second, then promptly lost it again. He's afraid to throw strikes right now.
