Minor League/Japanese Wackiness

Thanks, I hate it. 

Every major leaguer that has more than 20 steals a season should be able to beat a throw to first.  This will radically change the game and punish pitchers with good stuff with catchers who are inexperienced with them.    Nope, nope, nope.

Yeah, it's pretty fucking silly. There's no way that I can conceive that this goes any further than a test run. There was a situation that came up in a different game and it radically changes the rule regarding an uncaught third strike with a runner at 1st.

Thanks to their spiffy new ballpark, the Las Vegas Aviators are averaging 9,396 fans per home game, completely obliterating their attendance records and on pace to outdraw an MLB club (answers on a postcard) for the first time since Sacramento outdrew the lame duck Expos in 2004.

In the last week of Spokane Indians games, I've seen:

- catcher's interference. Twice. 

- batter's interference

- umpire interference 

- a ball called because a pitcher pump-faked (like a balk but with nobody on base) 

Fun stuff. You never know what you're going to see!

The Fukuoka Daiei Hawks are champions of Japan for the 5th time in six seasons, steamrolling the Yomiuri Giants in four straight. First Japan Series sweep since Bobby Valentine's Chiba Lotte Marines swept Hanshin in 2005. The 2016 HAM FIGHTERS are the only team to break up the FDH dynasty.

Matanzas won the 59th Serie Nacional of Cuban baseball yesterday. They defeated Camaguey 11-2 in Game 6 of the finals. This is Maranzas' first Serie Nacional victory in 29 years.

On a much more somber note, among those killed in the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and his daughter, was John Altobelli, a JuCo coach who helped several big leaguers.

I've been digging what I've seen of it so far. Its nice getting up around 5:30 or so and having a live game to watch before starting the day. I especially love the Samsung Lions stadium and their mammoth scoreboard.

I noticed they have a "FC" designation on the scoreboards next to standard B/S/O - is that for fielder's choice?

Wonder if they can get an ESPN deal?

Well here we go...

Kyodo News reports that two Yomiuri Giants players have tested positive for COVID-19. The players, shortstop Hayato Sakamoto and catcher Takumi Oshiro, are the first baseball players in Japan to test positive since NPB began its ramp-up to a scheduled June 19 opening day.

In response, the Giants canceled an exhibition game against the Seibu Lions scheduled for today and have announced that every player, coach and member of team staff will undergo additional testing.

This is pretty fucking excellent. Eagles fans sent them in at the team's request.

As long as ESPN keep bringing in guest commentators, they totally need to have Tom Kenny on so he can do a tight ten as SpongeBob.

A better idea would be to stop bringing in all these stupid and vapid guest commentators and actually let me watch and pay attention to the freaking games. Seriously I don't need a quarter of my screen taking up by head shots of yammering idiots, LET ME WATCH THE FUCKING GAME I TUNED IN TO WATCH YOU FUCKING BABBLING MORONS.
