MLB not to expand instant replay

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: MLB, Playoffs,

Bug SeligAfter brief discussions regarding instant replay, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig has let the world know he’s made another decision: baseball will not use an expanded form of instant replay during the 2010 postseason. Selig and the special committee that recommended changes to the 2011 schedule met on Monday night to discuss the possibility, but quickly but a stomp on the idea. In October instant replay will remain limited to reviews of home run balls and nothing more.

Bud Selig won’t overturn call to give Armando Galarraga his perfect game

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: MLB, News,

Bud Selig

Bud Selig won’t be using his powers as commissioner to overturn an atrocious wrong call by umpire Jim Joyce that ruined the Detroit Tigers’ Armando Galarraga’s perfect pitching performance last night against the Cleveland Indians.  Granted the human element in baseball is a long-standing tradition and part of the reason that gives baseball its appeal, but this was an obvious call.  Everyone saw that Joyce screwed up, Joyce admitted he screwed up, and with the advent of cable and the internet, the proof of the mistake has been seen by millions of people that knew Galarraga was robbed.  Well, it looks like we’ll have to consider this a 28-out perfect game.

Nobody’s perfect

Armando GalarragaIf you haven’t heard about Armando Galarraga’s not-quite-perfect game, where have you been? With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, after having retired 26-straight Cleveland Indian hitters, Galarraga’s bid for perfection was denied on a blown call by first base umpire Jim Joyce. A ground ball from Jason Donald was fielded by Miguel Cabrera who threw to Galarraga covering first to beat the runner and the game was over; at least for everybody other than Joyce, who called Donald safe.

McGwire finally comes clean

Mark McGwireIt appears that Major League Baseball’s “Steroid Era” isn’t quite over yet. Mark McGwire finally admitted to the public what we already knew – that he was on steroids for a significant portion of his career; including when he broke the Home Run Record in 1998. However, he did say that he only took steroids in low doses to help him recover from injuries in the mid-90s and not to improve his on-field performance. However, that doesn’t explain why he still thinks his career statistics and records should remain untarnished.

Selig proposes to make changes to MLB postseason

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Editorial, Front Office, MLB, Playoffs,

Bud SeligMajor League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has promised some changes to the current format – more specifically the sluggish pace – of the MLB postseason. The argument is pretty clear. The MLB regular season schedule is an every day affair; but the MLB playoffs schedule resembles more of an NBA or NHL schedule. The World Series champion New York Yankees played a 162-game schedule in 180 days then played 15 playoff games in 31 days. That’s a drastic change to what the players and their bodies were used to. The Yankees and the Angels also had four days off between the ALDS and ALCS after each team swept their respective opponents.
