Is this where I can find out if Tom Glavine is still pitching for the Braves?

I'm afraid it's gonna be another long year for the Royals. But based on what I've seen so far things may work out for the Tigers if everyone stays healthy. The pitching looks stronger than last year. I hated to see Granderson go, but Jackson looks really good in spring training. Hopefully Inge is 100% after double knee surgery...he says he's feeling good. Ordonez and Cabrera both are poised to have a great year. Go Tigers!

I was wondering if you guy's ever talked Baseball here.
I was a big fan of the St Louis Cardinal's growing up.
Gas House Gang was my father's team.
I became a Yankees fan after we moved east in '58 and started going to Yankee Stadium.
Still enjoy attending live games, and plan on going to the New Yankee Stadium this season, as well as The Met's new Stadium.
Minor League games are always a treat also. Watching raw talent being refined is a beautiful thing.

So Glavine actually hung it up?

Did he get to 300 wins?

Either way, he's in.

UUGGH!!!

I hate the Royals.

They always seem to thwart the Tigers, and this goes back for years now.

Personally, I'll never forgive Cabrera for tanking it during those critical games the last week of the season. To be three times the legal limit ten hours before what amounted to be a playoff game is inexcusable. I went to all seven games that week, he stranded over thirty runners all total. He simply didn't care about winning.

As for Inge, he's a regular at the bar I manage, and he's a great guy. He played through Steve Yzerman type pain last year, because we needed his defense.

My prediction for the Tigers is a .500 finish. There's a lot of talent there with guys like Cabrera, Verlander ( who I recently met), Valarde, and Ordonez. But there are way too many holes.

It does help that Nathan went down for the Twins. He's 40 for 40 I believe against the Tigers, and we play those guys 19 times.

Now if Mauer could just go down!!!!!

I heard on Mike and Mike today that MLB is considering allowing teams to 'float' in and out of their divisions. Teams that think they could compete in another division may be able to switch for a season, teams that are rebuilding..i.e. Indians may switch to the Al East to get 18 home games with Yanks and Red Sox and pull some big crowds.
I like the idea. MLB shaking it up.

That will never happen, as it is a horrible idea.

Kinda reminds me of the concept of relegation in English Premier League soccer, a concept I am a huge fan of.

Sounds good to me. I live in small market hell anyway.

I'd say it's not gonna be a free for all, but I'm for it and I think it will add some excitement to some markets who are struggling and those who think they can contend given the right circumstances.
I think we'll see it in the future.

How can a MLB thread be started by a fan of a minor league team?

LETS GO YANKEES

One of my favorite players. In the spring of 1991, he and Steve Avery were signing at a baseball card event my son and I went to. For the reasonable price of 2 bucks each, i got him to sign two of his rookie cards. I wonder if they are worth anything now.

MLB in discussions over 'floating realignment'
Sporting News staff reports
Wednesday, Mar. 10, 2010 - 8:57 a.m. ET

Major League Baseball teams would be able to pick their division and league annually under a plan being floated by a committee charged with examining the game.

SI.com's Tom Verducci reports there is strong support among the 14-member panel of mainly executives and managers for the idea of "floating realignment." It is seen as a way to increase competitive balance. Verducci adds, however, that the concept is merely in the talking stages and lacks a structure. Moreover, the committee's recommendations are non-binding.

Under the concept, teams would be able to decide where they'd want to play in a given season based on geography, payroll and willingness to contend. SI.com, citing an unnamed source who is familiar with the discussions, notes that a team couldn't move into a division more than two time zones beyond its home city say, the Rays or Orioles trying to join the NL West.

The Rays, though, could move out of the AL East and into the AL Central, where they conceivably would have a better shot at making the playoffs.

Floating realignment also could change the number of teams in a division or league in a given season. It also would affect scheduling of interleague games.

"This is all about any ideas that help make the game better," says Braves president John Schuerholz, a committee co-chairman.

This just sounds like a horrible idea.

What possible benefits would come from this??

No team would ever decide to join the western divisions because it would kill their TV ratings...

The whole "willingness" to contend thing sounds bad.

All teams should be trying to contend.

Teams go through rebuilding years while they try and contend. Those teams like the Indians might want to pack their park with big market teams. It's a business.

I like the idea from a small market standpoint. If you put the big spenders together, and the low budgets, then mix it up in the postseason, it would add interest. As we've seen, any team/pitching staff can get hot in October and that would give some young small market teams a real chance.

However, as a Yankee fan, I hate it.

I am ok with it as long as the Yanks still get to bitch slap the Red Sox 19 times a year

Nathan going down for Twins leaves the door open for an already strong Tiger team.
Nathan will need Tommy John Surgery it appears, Do the Twins move Liriano to the Bullpen to close? His winter league numbers are unbelievable
