2024 MLB Season

Post by SuperHornet »

Another instance of umpire grandstanding took place yesterday (I think) as the son of a HOF umpire who runs an umpiring school threw out the NYY manager for saying naughty things to him that were actually said by a fan in the stands just over the NYY dugout. Now, I can't stand the Yankees, but the umpire's response is classic narcissistic umpire nonsense.

Manager: I didn't say anything.

Umpire: I don't care! You're gone anyway!

After the game, the ump claimed that he tossed Boone because "he's responsible for everything that happens in the dugout." True, but is the manager in control of things that happen IN THE STANDS?!?

SMH....

MLB has a big problem with injuries

Particularly pitchers

Hard throwers chasing velocity are dropping like flies and unfortunately, they are some of the best pitchers in baseball.

Also, the oblique strain is becoming an epidemic

My favorite active pitcher is back. Days after he signed with the independent/partner Eastern League's Long Island Ducks, Dan Straily's contract was purchased by the Chicago Cubs; he's expected to be assigned to AAA Iowa, though that hasn't quite happened yet.

Because a friend of mine was his youth pastor...weird, I know. But if you don't know at this point that Super Hornet is weird, you should.

Gotcha, I don’t really see that as weird but I guess I should take your word for it.
