Major League Baseball is considering a move that would lead to more correct calls and, in turn, make the game better. Yes, it would impact tradition — the tradition of incorrect calls that has dogged baseball for decades.
Major League Baseball appears set for a vast expansion of video review by umpires in 2014 and is examining whether all calls other than balls or strikes should be subject to instant replay.
Only the most jaded Jeter fans could ignore the obvious. Derek Jeter is older, slower, and injured. There will be a day when he can’t play anymore. Will it be this year or next?
Outside of the cities that the respective teams represent, there is little that connects the 2004 Yankees and Red Sox to the 2013 Knicks and Celtics.
It appears from the way he pointed to the problematic area that the third baseman’s complaints refer to his right side, and reports are that the issue is in Wright’s back rather than his chest.
Instead of traveling to Port St. Lucie to be examined, Mets third baseman David Wright boarded a plane in Miami and flew to New York to be examined by team doctors. General manager Sandy Alderson made the announcement on Friday morning.
Wright said he was optimistic about playing again for Team USA. But Joe Torre ruled him out of Friday night’s game and said Wright was doubtful beyond that.
Two of New York’s brightest stars will take the stage on Thursday night when Team USA takes on the Dominican Republic at Marlins Park in Miami. We’re talking about the Yankees’ Robinson Cano and the Mets’ David Wright, of course.
The Mets’ star was locked in again. Wright drove in five runs, the last three with a bases-loaded double in the eighth. That prompted chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” from the crowd of 32,872.
Running out of outs, Adam Jones and the United States suddenly broke loose and saved themselves from a humbling loss. Now, thanks to a fast finish, they’re heading to Miami for the next round of the World Baseball Classic.
“It’s official now,” Rivera said at a press conference Saturday morning. “After this year I’ll be retired.”
Rivera wasn’t just the best closer in the history of baseball. His ability to defy logic for 18 seasons makes him one of the most unique athletes of all-time.
Rivera is getting set to close his career. The Yankees legend plans to announce this weekend that he will retire after the 2013 season.
Major League Baseball intends to expand the use of instant replay for the 2014 season and will be studying over the course of this year which calls to review and how to do it.
Baseball was invented in the United States, but the World Baseball Classic has been dominated by Japan. U.S. manager Joe Torre has taken a different approach in the WBC’s third edition this year.
