    Sale struck out 8 over 5.1 last night included an immaculate inning in the third. 3-0 since his return.

    Watch out if Bobby Dalbec finally figures out the strike zone. That guy has some serious pop.

IIRC, that runner is charged to the pitcher despite the pitcher not being responsible for him being on 2nd base to start the inning. I could be wrong but if that’s the case, it’s just dumb.

    Definitely bring the DH to NL. It was so refreshing last season. To go back to a pitcher failing to get a bunt down or just checking the box by taking three straight strikes insults the fan’s intelligence.
    I honestly don't recall. I just know this one has been the longest yet.

    The idea that it messes up some of the numbers is certainly not lost on anyone in this day and age. Part of me doesn't like it for that very reason.

    I think anyone who actually likes watching pitchers hit is either lying or a complete idiot. There is nothing likable about it.

    If the Padres don't make the postseason...my goodness.

So much for starting a runner on 2nd. That rule needs to go away IMO. That game went through four extra innings w/ zero runs scored. Isn’t the point of the extra runner starting on 2nd supposed to eliminate that? It’s a no for me moving forward. Let them scrap together one run (especially if it forces more small ball) and go back to the original rules.

Devers saved his ass big time yesterday before Shaw hit the walk off.
    Tough division, and they all get to play the Orioles more than enough times. Yankees are rolling right now.

    Can't help but pull for the Rays.

    Over 20,000 men have played Major League Baseball; Miguel Cabrera became the 28th player in MLB history to eclipse 500 HRs in Toronto yesterday afternoon.

    I've been a Tigers fan all my life and he is a special talent and just a fun character to watch play the game. Couldn't be happier for Miggy.

    Great era. Mine was late 70s/early 80s but I can still recite the starting lineup for the ‘55 Brooklyn Dodgers. Useless information that gets me nowhere!

That was the era when their power hitter, Ted Kluszewski; would cut the sleeves off his undershirt so that it looked like he was only wearing the vest and showing off his guns. I love looking back at the 50s-60s eras of MLB.

    The deal includes lower tax thresholds, more revenue sharing, more rules. Not what the game needs right now.

    I think it is dumb and shouldn't be taken seriously.
    Agreed. Some teams who can’t compete and are claiming to be poor simply refuse to spend the money to compete. They pocket the revenue sharing instead of reinvesting. Everyone loved to hate on Steinbrenner but look what happened to the Yankees when he took over and started to invest. They went from a non-factor that had become a joke to the Yankees of yore. In fact, the Yankees weren’t his original desire…he tried to buy the Indians. The Yankees were the fall back.

    I picture the Pirates grabbing an Albert Pujols "bad money" contract to get to the floor. This is stupid.

    The big increases in shared revenue over the last 20 years were because of the lack of competitiveness in baseball.

Nobody on Fox, ABC, etc. should call the Cubs "The Cubbies". Just stop. Sadly ARod knows the game & can bring relative insight but he tries too hard to be chummy w/ his fraternity by using nicknames ad nauseam. Plus, everyone knows he’s a douche so every critique of him gets magnified through that lens.

    2. It sounded like Manfred said they're going to commit to it again next year, but didn't confirm the Cubs would be involved. Brewers vs Twins in throwbacks maybe? Or stick with Chicago and go White Sox vs Brewers or Cardinals? Brewers/Twins would be sweet. They could even wear Pilots/Senators throwbacks if they really wanted to go retro.

    3. Fox and MLB treated this game like it was a huge deal. Fox did their best NFL broadcast for that game last night. Treated it like the NFL does their games. MLB needs to consider going all out for all their games that are on TV. Start by making them accessible to your fans and grow the fanbase. If you are of a certain age, you know the movie. You've seen it and probably liked it. So you like baseball and you're already in the audience. Make all the games like this, not just a special event in Iowa. Agreed. MLB needs to be surgical in how they do these but my cynical side tells me they’ll find a way to screw it up.

    4. It was a game for the wealthy to experience. Personally, I thought they should have had Iowa teachers, first responders, nurses and doctors there. For free. THAT would have made for a cool story. Instead, only the rich, former players and celebs got to experience it because only they could afford it. Cool. Another American pastime. Yeah, all kids would be great, too. I did see they let the two youth league teams that played in the adjacent field attend. That’s the least they could do.

    5. They should wear those unis again this year. More than once. Believe Hendricks even said so during his in game interview. MLB has done throwbacks for decades and it’s finally starting to attract the young crowd. I know my 17 y/o loves them. He also loves the emotion expressed by all the young stars like Tim Anderson, Tatis, Alonso. He even gets a kick out of Ohtani disagreeing w/ a call. MLB is still far from perfect from a general viewing perspective. It’s all relative though. If travel wasn’t an issue, I’d love to see MLB teams play in their MiLB affiliates who are located in states w/o MLB.

    Fun night, fun to watch. It's a great game full of great talent right now. They just need more people to see it.
    Rodriguez is bad at the job. Week in and week out. Can't do sound. I've tried here and there but he's never gotten better.

    Thought the same. Retro uniforms obviously makes a difference on a few levels. Fanatics had Field of Dreams CWS hats on their website when the game started. By the 6th they were gone.

    Their reputation is that they will screw it up. On purpose or not.

    Saw a lot of former players and celeb types. Paul Konerko, Jim Thome, Walter Payton's son Jarrett Payton from WGN. It's a really cool thing to be a part of but for $3K a pop? There is a very small percentage of people who can afford that in Iowa or anywhere else for that matter.

    I believe the White Sox wear throwbacks at home every Sunday they are at home but not from the Field of Dreams game. They have an opportunity to capitalize on more merch sales being that they are good this year.

    The SF Giants are no longer a fluke. They have dominated all season long w/ no end in sight. The closest thing they have to a future HOFer is Buster Posey who is having a year that harkens back to his prime. I don’t know if they can sustain it past this season but they have to be the odds on favorite to win it all b/c they have yet to hit a meaningful losing streak. I hate the Giants but I love that their success flies in the face of the fans who whine about how teams can just spend their way to championships. Laziest argument in MLB IMO.

    I was watching "Alone" and flipped it over just in time to see Stanton launch one for the lead. Flipped it back to discover they blew it in the bottom of the 9th.

    Great setting for a game. Would have preferred the outfield fence be gone, but still very nice.

    What an evening. Hard to believe it’s been 32 years.

    and with that, the Yankees just went up 8-7. What a game.
    That was awesome! Hope a bunch of youngins were watching that and go sign up for Little League.
