Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

That "foul ball" was too close to call either way, as can be seen in the following:

animated GIF from behind home plate

GIF from behind the 1st base line

Even the article in which those images are inserted says it was too close to call. Thing is Cain's performance was so dominant that everyone sees there is no point in complaining either way. You just sit back and marvel at such a great pitcher in his prime. A guy who was lightning quick to praise his teammates for their performances in that game.

The Metrodome is called Humpdome, at least by people not in Minneapolis.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

If anyone gets a chance, check out the video from the Indians vs Reds game from today. Carlos Santana TACKLES a fan going for a ball along the first base line. It is one of the best videos from all year long.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Way to early to consider this, almost as bad as talking about someone being MVP right now. You never know where someone will be at the end of the season.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ True dat. But I prefer to keep my hopes up. If any Met deserves it, it's R.A. (and Johan ).

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ Oh well, all right, if you insist.

srsly though, I like the way your ballpark looks and I would never in a million years disrespect it. I absolutely plan to go there next year. (Even though I'm not a Giants fan, I plan to have a Dave Dravecky T-shirt custom made for the occasion.)

In fact, since I'm going to Oakland the same week, I will make sure to go to Oakland *first* because who would want to go to the Coliseum *after* Tele...AT&T Park?

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I really want to see a game there, too. I saw a Dodgers/Giants game at Dodger Stadium back in '96, so it's only fair that I go see a Giants/Dodgers game at AT&T Park (ugh, I hate corporate names for stadiums) at some point.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

When ever I visit other stadiums, I always root for the home team. Even if the away team is a team I like, of course unless its the Mets. I always root for the Mets.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ If I don't have a stake in which team wins (i.e. neither of the teams are Yankees or Mets), I really don't care. The first two games I saw in Philly last April, were against the Marlins, and so I was more like meh.

As for SF: Over on the baseball board I asked if the Giants could play one last game at Candlestick before they tear it down, but apparently that's not possible (the football bleachers are stuck there now). How d'you feel about that, Flux?

Was the Stick really as bitter cold during night games as I keep hearing?

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

The Cubs have approached Ryan Dempster about waiving his 10 - 5 rights, and Matt Garza expects to be on a different team by July 31, so the team's housecleaning seems ready to begin. Now if they can just fix -- or, better yet, replace -- that garbage scow of a stadium...

^ I've heard suggestions that if the Cubs move out, Wrigley should become the new location of the Hall of Fame. What say you, Timby?
