    This made me laugh
  2. I think they were all walked players too...
  3. This... Looked like a typical double play ball to me. Surprised no one was there

    Game 2 MLB Network

    Hulu has never had the MLB Network (at least in the few years I've had it). I wouldn't expect them to suddenly be able to make it available.

    Field of Dreams Game

    Registering and trying to get family and friends to register that I can hopefully buy off of them. I've heard that hotels in that area have been booked for a long time, and they were having meetings in the area about "how to set up an AirBnb". https://www.dyersvillecommercial.com/news/airbnb-meeting-a-hit-with-residents/article_970cc7f2-09e1-58ce-87b5-928e24922b54.html

    Umpire Score Cards This Season

    I would assume that 0 would be average because for every positive, the other team gets the negative of that one. That being said, it would be interesting to see a ranking of this (not that I expect anyone to put in that kind of effort for all teams).

    GT 5/5: SOX at CIN

    Robert might have had that one...

    GT 5/5: SOX at CIN

    Really could use something here. Otherwise, it is the bottom of the order trying to get a runner in from 2nd if the relief holds

    GT 5/5: SOX at CIN

    I don't think that running into foul territory on the road towards a dugout (with the opposing team in it who will not help you out) while trying to keep footing in gravel is what I'd call a simple catch for a popup.

    Field of Dreams Game Cancelled

    I really hope that it isn't against the Cubs or Cards. There are enough of those fans around here.

    I opened this thread expecting to see an article about Quintana...

    Playoff odds

    QUOTE (bmags @ May 10, 2016 -> 01:48 PM) I remember differently. I remember after the late AJ and Iguchi signings, people really feeling positive about how complete the team was. I don't think anyone thought world series, but I felt good about playoffs, as good as I had during 01-04. This is what I remember as well. There was a lot of talk on the board specifically about Iguchi and excitement when he signed.

    Early Trade Speculation

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Apr 28, 2016 -> 01:22 AM) While that's logical enough for the White Sox, what's the incentive for the Cubs to help the Sox? And there's still the question of what prospects we could package outside of the Top 3 that would attract not only the Cubs but other teams around MLB? http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=m...itting/2016/ALL He's essentially a lesser version of Kyle Schwarber, but those minor league numbers are impressive. If I'm the Cubs, I might be tempted to get the most that I can for Schwarber next year (via trade, after proving he's recovered) and then plug Vogelbach into LF instead. Granted, they are going to have to figure out where they want to play Bryant, Baez, Almora, McKinney, Soler...at least three of those players SHOULD be traded to shore up other areas of weakness. I'd agree that your option is much more palatable than Shuck, Fields, Davidson, Ishikawa, etc. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=m...itting/2016/ALL There's also a chance for an unknown like Coats or even Nicky Delmonico in BIRM. He's been on an absolute tear recently. Just saw him put one over the scoreboard a couple of days ago. That being said, I can't imagine him trying to roam LF. That would seem like a disaster.

    Technology catch-all thread

    QUOTE (ChrisLikesBaseball @ Apr 19, 2016 -> 10:55 AM) As others said, self-install was free. There are a lot of channels that I can stream out of home. Unfortunately it looks like regional networks and premium sports networks aren't available. Have you looked into a SlingBox? I use it a lot to watch anything that would come through my satellite (DirecTV). http://www.slingbox.com/Products/Slingplayerapps.aspx
