    Fair enough. I tend to forget about cricket actually. Doesn’t exactly demand a ton of airtime in the states.



    I honestly couldnt tell you a single rule.

    Second best contract in the history of professional sports. He still has 16 more years of this somehow!

    Absolutely brilliant piece of negotiating on his/his agent's part. I actually just sent him an autograph request a couple weeks ago. Fingers crossed he sends it back.

    The Yankees homered in every game they played in during the entire month of June.

    Edwin Encarnacion has played in MLB games in three different continents this season alone.

    Yankee fans I’ll be gracing my presence at Yankee stadium in September. Who is meeting me to get my very drunk? Since @Beefy fucked me off on Saturday in London.

    Tyler Skaggs of the Angels dead at 27. They canceled tonight's game as well. Very sad situation. He went to high school here.

    I think you can take the D train from Rockefeller Center station to Yankee Stadium. Should cost you like $3.75 for a single ride Metro card. Takes 30 minutes or so.

    If you're going to take more than a few subway rides, look into getting the 7 day unlimited ride Metro card.

    Unlimited card is $35 I think, so if you’re doing more than 10 rides it’s worth it. And you can share it with the people you’re traveling with.

    Been checking out tickets for $16 in section 416, row 9. It shows you the view and it looks brilliant still.

    Vlad and Joc in the second round were astonishing.

    Its pretty cool for Alonso to earn more in one night ($1 million) than his full year rookie contract of $550,000 pays him.

    The Atlantic League, at the behest of MLB, is testing out a new rule in which a batter can attempt to advance to first base on a passed ball/wild pitch that isn't caught.

    Oh it's a terrible idea. I doubt MLB ever discusses instituting it.

    With two strikes, they can swing well after it has crossed the plate and advance to first on a strikeout stolen base. Pete Rose did this more than once. Are they proposing that a batter can try to advance with less than two strikes?

    On any pitch not caught during it's flight. So basically if a ball touches the ground, on any count, the batter can attempt to advance to first base. Wild pitch, passed ball, doesn't matter.

    I guess if there's a guy on third and less than two outs it would be worth a shot, maybe. In that case I'd assume the catcher would probably make an attempt to get the guy at the plate since it would be a) a potentially run-saving play and b)possibly be a shorter throw depending where the ball ended up. Then the batter is on first.

    I would also assume this would result in less breaking balls being thrown to speedier guys who could attempt to steal first if a ball gets away. Still, awful idea.

    Well, it happened for the first time. A batter took first on an 0-1 count after a wild pitch.

    Curious that they are saying it is a stolen first base, but then also say it goes down as a fielders choice cuz of the catcher.
