It's in the fourth inning, but we could use an open thread for baseball and not top 20 lists. Who else thinks the new yankee stadium is just far to small?
This is maaaaybe premature there, ESPN. Maryland #1 FWIW.
same dimensions as the old one
I never said the old park wasn't to small either. (I just don't like the fact that a new stadium was built when there was nothing wrong with the old one, so I call it the new yankee stadium)
While the listed dimensions are the same, the field has a straighter line between the right field corner and the measurement in right center. The effect is that the fence in right field is much shorter in the new stadium than it was in the old stadium.
That Robinson Cano home run would've been a routine pop-fly in any other park in America. It's ridiculous.
What about Canada?
on the exchange rate.
Nice to see Cabera hitting the ball - 2, 2 run HRs today is nice, but we need some more offense. Not too mention it doesn't look like Max will make it through 5 innings....
god I hate them
Is our pitching is piss ass poor, our middle relief is awful, our batting blows and we don't look like a team that wants or will compete for a championship and it makes me very angry. Thanks.
You need a hug. We lost the first two games of the season against a loaded yankees team. Everything is going to be alright.
I do need a hug. And the Yankees aren't that loaded. There bats are when there on but there pitching is suspect. I'm an extremist. I get real excited then the losses but more importantly the lifelessnes I see from our players gets me down/I love Rod Allen.
The yankees have really really disciplined hitters. They are going to chase a lot of starting pitchers out of the game early because of pitch counts. But, we did that to them today. Get to any bullpen early in the game, and you'll have a good chance to score runs.
I'm going to wait until the Tigers play some series in the AL central before I get worried about the team.
I know. I just hate losing.
Sample size FAIL.
2 games in that weak excuse for a ball park should not have you too worried. Lets see how we open it up in Comerica.
(Thank you Mario Impemba, I love you!)
not that weak shit the Yankees have been pulling.
Anyone has a link for the game? Its sucks now that all the good sites are seized by the feds...
If you have an iPod/iPhone/iPad you can purchase the MLB atbat 2011 app (14.99). You can listen to every game in the country with both the home and away audio feeds. I know it's not ideal, but I bought it last year as well as this year and it works great. There might be a version available for android as well. Also, if you have an MLB.tv subscription you can stream it you your device and watch any game.
games played by teams in your "local" market (which, apparently, is defined pretty broadly) are blacked out. Not just home games in your local market, but all games played by teams based in your local market.
I was unaware of that caveat, which sucks. I'm glad I did not purchase MLBtv.
It is indeed defined very broadly. I live in northern Indiana and have cable but would need to upgrade to some supercharged sports package to get FSD. Yet the Tigers are always blacked out for me on mlb.tv (as well as on ESPN when it's on there) because of "local" broadcast rights.
I can however get the audio broadcast on mlb.tv.
I'm pretty sure the blackout only applies to MLB TV broadcasts, not the radio broadcasts. I have the MLB radio broadcasts on my blackberry and have no trouble listening to games whereas, even in Iowa, I was blocked from watching Tigers games on MLB TV whenever they played in Minneapolis or Chicago (I'm in Iowa). Listening to the games may not be your ideal but baseball is the best radio sport.
Back to the dimensions point (but first Brennan WOO!), the really old Yankee Stadium was death to right handed power hitters unless you pulled the ball right down the line. Way back when I was a Young Brimley and lived and died with Willie Horton (not much else to root for on those teams), I'd get seriously pissed when Willie would drive one 425 feet into left center field, which was just a long out. Watching Gibson knock out seats in the upper deck in right a few years later was OK though.
should be worried we have been playing in a joke of a ballpark this weekend and other then brad penny our pitching has been pretty good. since boesch seems to be great in the first half then raburn gets on fire in the second i vote we mostly have boesch play LF for the first few months and have raburn play right/DH depending on maggs.
Go Tigers we will win the central this year!
Boesch had played in one full season. I don't think you can make that conclusion about him yet.
a solid player he just needs to work on his plate disipline because he swings at some ugly stuff
And the Tigers hold on to win a high scoring baseball game, 10-7. Their record is 1-2 with a series at Baltimore up next.
Hello Camden Yards! But seriously, CY has to be one of the coolest stadiums in the majors.
Anyway, the Orioles are a completely different team since Buck took over 2/3 of the way through last season. 3-0 to start the year and looking strong again.
