Wednesday Night Open Thread

By

As I mentioned the other day, MLB is testing out the new manager’s challenge-based replay system in the Arizona Fall League this week. The first test game was last night and sure enough, the new system was put to the test. See the video above. They actually reviewed another bang-bang play at first base later in the game as well. Both times the replay was very quick and easy; I was pleasantly surprised. MLB is leaning towards implementing the system for 2014 but nothing is final yet.

Anyway, here is your open thread for the evening, day two of free agency. Once again, not a whole lot happened. It’ll pick up soon, I promise. The Rangers are the only local team in action, so you’re on your own for entertainment if you don’t like hockey. Talk about anything and everything right here. Enjoy.

    Redbulls on Tonight, playoff soccer. Those who do not share the sentiment of soccer, 2015 brings a second soccer club to the NY area, that is part owned by the Yankees.

      I can’t believe that giveaway goal. We are much better on paper, but Houston knows how to win. We can’t afford any more carelessness.

    “I came up with a baseline contact of seven years and $142 million, with a maximum valued contract of 10 years and $222 million. The Fangraphs contract crowd-sourcing project estimates that Cano will receive an 8 year, $196 million contract.”

    Yanks should get tanaka. If arod is suspended for all of next year,how about signing garza, cano andnelson Cruz or Beltran?
