I can't wait... I was watching some youtube compilation vids last night of the best plays and best ejections from 2016 and was getting all excited to watch Bautista get punched in the mug again by Odor.
Piscotty was hit by a pitch in the right elbow. Then hit by a throw to 2nd on a steal in the left elbow. Then beamed by a ball to the head while trying to reach home plate. That's an earned run if I've ever seen one.
I wasn't a fan of replay for baseball at first, but it hasn't become the albatross that replay has become to college football. I actually think they got it almost right out of the gate. A few tweaks and it's better. I think we've found out that umpires are worse than we thought. I know it's hard to make a call on close tag plays, but they screw up a lot of easy ones too. Balls and strikes are always going to good and bad with a human behind the plate, but I wouldn't want to change that.
Worst thing about replay: It's all but totally eliminated on field arguments that brought the manager out screaming holy hell and getting thrown out. What would Billy Martin do today?
Husker Spring Game is April 18. Been saying this for a couple of decades now, hoping/expecting better things this year.
Going to be a rough schedule this year but have some interesting matchups. The Cincinnati game should be interesting. Don't know that we have ever played Cincy.
So everyone from last year has the opportunity to play again this year and we will cap it at 10 teams meaning there are at least 2 open spots.
Buy in will be $50. Will pay out at least top 2, maybe 3 depending on how many teams and consensus of league.
Please let me know if you are in or out...
Well, I'm bored at work!!! Let's do one from the hated Yankees!!
The Yankees had a LOT of retreads in the 80's, so I'll limit this to 2 a year.
Don Slaught. What is known about Don Slaught? Would it be when he got plunked in the face by a pitch at Fenway? Wore a facemask at the plate...
I admit: I'm a baseball nut, but I was never more of a nut than in the 80's when baseball was life. I loved a lot of teams and players, but the Red Sox was my team. The hometown boys.
If you are a fan too, you'll remember Rice and Clemens and Yaz, but what about those other players? Players who...
