Here's my take.

Chicago has more starting talent but their bullpen is their Achilles heel.

Houston has more heart and their bullpen can get the job done.

This thing has 7 games written all over it.

That being said, 'GO STROS!

Hey 4th and Long. Just asking what you think on the on going debate on the designated batter.

I would rather have them, as it makes the game more exciting, besides, the pitcher is almost always an automatic out. It ruins (usually) rallys going.
And, if you want your pitcher to bat then use them anyway.

Growing up in an AL enviorment, I'm biased for one reason. Geroge Brett. The guy's career would have ended long before it did had there been no DH rule. Now that George is gone, I can honestly say, I can live without the rule.

I don't understand why it can't be uniform.
Although Major League Baseball specifies precise dimensions for a ballpark's infield, it stipulates only minimum distances (http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/official_info/official_rules/objectives_1.jsp) for the outfield. Ever since Alexander Cartwright (http://www.baseballhalloffame.org/hofers_and_honorees/hofer_bios/cartwright_alexander.htm) set down the first rules of baseball in 1845, there have been few requirements for the dimensions of the field.

Cartwright's 20 rules of baseball (http://open-site.org/Sports/Baseball/History/Rules/1845_Original_Rules_of_Baseball/) for the New York Knickerbockers laid out the field in a diamond, set the distance from home to second base and from third to first base at 42 paces, and defined fair and foul territory. Most likely, the shape of the infield and foul territory were dictated by the dimensions of Madison Square, where the Knickerbockers played.

The land available continued to play a part in the size and orientation of many ballparks. Fenway Park (http://www.ballparks.com/baseball/american/fenway.htm), that venerated shrine of baseball, was built to conform to the surrounding streets near Boston's Kenmore Square. San Francisco's SBC Park (formerly Pac Bell Park) has an almost non-existent foul territory, a concession to the small plot of land on which it was built.

Managers and owners have exploited the flexibility in field size, sometimes to their advantage (http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/excerpts/spitters2.stm) -- and sometimes not (http://www.ballparksofbaseball.com/past/BravesField.htm). But to many fans, the quirky dimensions of its parks add to the charm, charisma, and character of baseball.

Yeah 4th, i sorta knew the brief, (but lame) history of the dimension change.

But why doesn't that effect football fields?
I thought that was a sad excuse for not haveing the same fields for all ballparks.

I used to be a big baseball fan; long story made short....the strikes, the dominance of the "super" teams, the lack of a salary cap, and LOOOOOONNNNGGG games together ruined my interest. I wish they'd fix the game....I might come back.

Anyway, as to your question the unique characteristics of each park are one of the things that makes the game interesting to me. Each team can be "built" to take advantage of it's park. In the late 70s and 80s the dimensions and turf at Royals Stadium were ideally suited for line-drive hitters, and speed on the bases and for "D." Some grounds crews have been known to let the grass grow high, if they have pitchers who get a lot of ground balls. A short left field fence? You ought to value Right handed power hitters. A canyon in Center? Your center fielder better have wheels. It all creates a "home field" advantage that USE to very significant. The disparity in payrolls though has diminished that somewhat. I consider it one of the interesting and intriguing aspects of the game.

NFL fields have specific dimensions bud.

NFL Football Field Dimensions

The regulation NFL football field is 120 yards long (360 feet or @110 meters) and 160 feet wide (@49 meters or 53 yards & 1 foot).

END LINE - The back of the end zone is indicated by a six foot wide white out-of-bounds line.

HASHMARKS - set one yard apart between each yardline. There are two sets - a middle set (about 70 feet from the sideline) and an outer set about a foot from the sideline.

FIELD NUMBERS - an NFL field is numbered every 10 yards, usually with an arrow pointing to the nearest endzone.

SIDELINES - a six-foot wide white line that runs the length of the field is an out-of-bounds line.

END ZONE - each end zone is ten yards deep.

GOAL LINE - A white stripe 8 inches wide (twice as wide as a yardline), that is the beginning of the End Zone.

RESTRAINING LINE - a six foot wide border outside of the out-of-bounds area that marks the closest a non-player may come to the playing field.

TEAM BENCHES - Team benches are placed at the border of the restraining line and between the two 30 yard lines.

The key dimensions are still the same for baseball... 90 feet between the bases and 60'6" from the pitchers mound to home. If everything else was equal, I'd think that'd get boring after a while...

The main thing i have against baseball Kotter that you mentioned, are the diverse salary caps the teams have. Its a joke.
Power teams verses major league farm clubs.

I watch the playoffs mainly because its kind of fun to watch.
But i usual never watch it through the year. The sport wore out its welcome many years ago for me.

I wouldn't question that there is a problem with baseball's economic system, but as much as people complain about it, we're going to have our 6th different World Series champ this decade after this series, and in that time the NFL has only had 3 different champions. It is funny how that works.

You are right. Six different champions, yes.

The rub for me is the Yanks, Red Sox, Braves and other "big" market teams have the resources to be CONSISTENTLY COMPETITIVE....based mainly on their economic resources.

Yes, small market teams get lucky with good young players, or great pitching, or great coaching, or a fabulously "lucky" year....but can't compete consistently over time.

If salary caps have made the NFL and NBA stronger (as, arguably, they have), baseball needs to see the light IMHO.

Looked to me both angles showed the ball coming off the bat. Either way you're actually suggesting that the ball changed direction in mid-air without any physical assistance, Newman.

A 'Break' from Fox
By Eric Wilbur, Boston.com Staff | October 24, 2005


Miss last night's stunning win by the White Sox? No worries. Today we're providing a transcript of all the action, courtesy of your friends at Fox.

Joe Buck: Good evening everybody and welcome to Game 2 of the 2005 World Series. Tim McCarver in a moment. Lou Piniella opted out of calling these games with us to tend concerns for his Florida home, thanks to Hurricane Wilma. Or that's the story we told you. The honest truth is, we've replaced him with this pet rock whose contract we purchased on eBay. But we expect the same level of analysis as Lou delivered, which admittedly wasn't much. And now, we welcome Tim McCarver.

McCarver: Joe, could you call me "Timmy" like Lou did? It makes me feel special.

Buck: Yeah, sure. But before we get to you, just wanted to point out that the entire wacky cast of "That 70's Show" is sitting directly behind the dugout. Ironically enough we had this promo ready telling you that you can catch the 70's kids Tuesday nights, right here on Fox. Now, Tim what have you got for us?

McCarver: I used to be a catcher.

Buck: Yes you did, Timmy. Before we go to commercial, isn't that Stacey Keach sitting in the Fox private suite along the first base line? In case you hadn't heard one of the 15,000 times we've told you this month, "Prison Break" can be seen Monday nights at 9, right here on Fox. Now, let's go to commercial, where I can guarantee you we'll see a promo for "Prison Break."

…..

Buck: While you were watching that ad for the new Fox hit "Bones" Tuesday nights at 8, right here on the Fox network, I'll just let you know the only thing you missed was a Morgan Ensberg home run to make it 1-0 Astros.

McCarver: The Astros are looking for their first World Series victory in their first World Series appearance. They've finally made it to the wedding, after being left at the altar so many times before. It's like Eartha Kitt once sang, "Who´s got the ding dong, who´s got the bell. Somebody know but nobody tell."

Buck: My God, where's Troy Aikman?

McCarver: He's sitting there behind home plate.

Buck: Indeed he is. And you can catch my other booth partner and I every week on Fox NFL Sunday, right after JB, Terry, Howie and Jimmy at noon.

McCarver: You know, Joe, I just wanted to remind people of what a great job Jorge PO-SaDA did running from first to third in Game 4 against the California Angels.

Buck: First of all, for our young viewers out there, Tim means the Los Angeles Angels, and second of all, that was two weeks ago.

McCarver: The point being, Aaron Rowand stopped at second. Bad base running. If that were PO-SaDA, he would have scored twice in all likelihood.

Buck: Right. Let's see what Scooter thinks. Scooter…

Scooter: Buzz off, Buck. You know nobody likes me. Why must you torment me?

Buck: Um, OK. Let's go to Chris Myers then, Chris?

Chris Myers: Joe, in a pathetic attempt to chisel the stone from my face-lifted mug as well as my personality, I called Bill Murray and asked him if he had done anything since Ghostbusters and he hung up on me. Isn't that ingenious? See, I'm as hip as that MTV movie geek Chris Connelly ESPN replaced me with.

Buck: So hip that you apparently missed "Lost in Translation," "Rushmore," "The Life Aquatic," "Royal Tenenbaums," "Kingpin," "Groundhog Day," and "What About Bob," to name a few since Ghostbusters. Thanks though, Chris, for that embarrassingly useless report.

McCarver: Was Murray in "Yankee Doodle Dandy" starring the late James Cagney and Joan Leslie?

Buck: No, Tim, I do not believe so.

McCarver: Ask George Steinbrenner, and he'll tell you it was anything but a Yankee Doodle Dandy this month in the Bronx.

Buck: My God, it's only the third?

McCarver: Bronson Backe warming in the bullpen for the Astros.

Buck: That's Brandon, Tim.

McCarver: Arroyo?

Buck: Forget it. Let's go back to Chris Myers. Chris?

Myers: Joe, do you like the way my hair looks? I killed a four-by-six layer of the ozone by hardening it with four different cans of hair spray.

Buck: That's… Anyway, as the graphic will tell you, RIGHT NOW, there are runners on first and third for the White Sox, with Joe Crede at the plate with two down.

McCarver: The only way Pettitte can get out of this is by getting a strikeout, a fly ball, or a ground ball. If Crede gets a base hit here, Chicago is going to score.

Buck: This booth might be better with Piniella AND the rock.

McCarver: Hey, Joe. Did you notice that's not Craig Biggio at second base right now?

Buck: No, Tim it's Bob Scoggins, the star of the new hit reality series, "The Imposter," in which Bob kidnaps a different person each week and takes on their identity until he gets either arrested, or maimed by someone in anger. "Entertainment Weekly" called it, "Television's first reality series that ensures somebody is getting sued."

Myers: Joe, if I can interrupt for a second, out of the blue I found Michael Rapaport of the new Fox hit comedy "The War at Home" sitting here by the Houston dugout. Now, if you don't mind I'm going to ask him a few inane questions, and make sure you watch me habitually nod and annoyingly smirk at him as he answers.

Buck: Six more days…six more days…six more days….

Exactly. Domes/roofs are useful for baseball games ONLY if the weather would cause the game to be canceled. Tonight's weather in Houston - clear with temperatures in the 60s.

Besides, baseball crowds cheer when things get exciting, regardless of what's going on. It's not like a smart football crowd raising hell on defense and being quiet on offense. I fail to see why it would matter at all.

Joe Buck: Good evening everybody and welcome to Game 2 of the 2005 World Series. Tim McCarver in a moment. Lou Piniella opted out of calling these games with us to tend concerns for his Florida home, thanks to Hurricane Wilma. Or that's the story we told you. The honest truth is, we've replaced him with this pet rock whose contract we purchased on eBay. But we expect the same level of analysis as Lou delivered, which admittedly wasn't much. And now, we welcome Tim McCarver.

McCarver: Joe, could you call me "Timmy" like Lou did? It makes me feel special.

Buck: Yeah, sure. But before we get to you, just wanted to point out that the entire wacky cast of "That 70's Show" is sitting directly behind the dugout. Ironically enough we had this promo ready telling you that you can catch the 70's kids Tuesday nights, right here on Fox. Now, Tim what have you got for us?

McCarver: I used to be a catcher.

Buck: Yes you did, Timmy. Before we go to commercial, isn't that Stacey Keach sitting in the Fox private suite along the first base line? In case you hadn't heard one of the 15,000 times we've told you this month, "Prison Break" can be seen Monday nights at 9, right here on Fox. Now, let's go to commercial, where I can guarantee you we'll see a promo for "Prison Break."

…..

Buck: While you were watching that ad for the new Fox hit "Bones" Tuesday nights at 8, right here on the Fox network, I'll just let you know the only thing you missed was a Morgan Ensberg home run to make it 1-0 Astros.

McCarver: The Astros are looking for their first World Series victory in their first World Series appearance. They've finally made it to the wedding, after being left at the altar so many times before. It's like Eartha Kitt once sang, "Who´s got the ding dong, who´s got the bell. Somebody know but nobody tell."

Buck: My God, where's Troy Aikman?

McCarver: He's sitting there behind home plate.

Buck: Indeed he is. And you can catch my other booth partner and I every week on Fox NFL Sunday, right after JB, Terry, Howie and Jimmy at noon.

McCarver: You know, Joe, I just wanted to remind people of what a great job Jorge PO-SaDA did running from first to third in Game 4 against the California Angels.

Buck: First of all, for our young viewers out there, Tim means the Los Angeles Angels, and second of all, that was two weeks ago.

McCarver: The point being, Aaron Rowand stopped at second. Bad base running. If that were PO-SaDA, he would have scored twice in all likelihood.

Buck: Right. Let's see what Scooter thinks. Scooter…

Scooter: Buzz off, Buck. You know nobody likes me. Why must you torment me?

Buck: Um, OK. Let's go to Chris Myers then, Chris?

Chris Myers: Joe, in a pathetic attempt to chisel the stone from my face-lifted mug as well as my personality, I called Bill Murray and asked him if he had done anything since Ghostbusters and he hung up on me. Isn't that ingenious? See, I'm as hip as that MTV movie geek Chris Connelly ESPN replaced me with.

Buck: So hip that you apparently missed "Lost in Translation," "Rushmore," "The Life Aquatic," "Royal Tenenbaums," "Kingpin," "Groundhog Day," and "What About Bob," to name a few since Ghostbusters. Thanks though, Chris, for that embarrassingly useless report.

McCarver: Was Murray in "Yankee Doodle Dandy" starring the late James Cagney and Joan Leslie?

Buck: No, Tim, I do not believe so.

McCarver: Ask George Steinbrenner, and he'll tell you it was anything but a Yankee Doodle Dandy this month in the Bronx.

Buck: My God, it's only the third?

McCarver: Bronson Backe warming in the bullpen for the Astros.

Buck: That's Brandon, Tim.

McCarver: Arroyo?

Buck: Forget it. Let's go back to Chris Myers. Chris?

Myers: Joe, do you like the way my hair looks? I killed a four-by-six layer of the ozone by hardening it with four different cans of hair spray.

Buck: That's… Anyway, as the graphic will tell you, RIGHT NOW, there are runners on first and third for the White Sox, with Joe Crede at the plate with two down.

McCarver: The only way Pettitte can get out of this is by getting a strikeout, a fly ball, or a ground ball. If Crede gets a base hit here, Chicago is going to score.

Buck: This booth might be better with Piniella AND the rock.

McCarver: Hey, Joe. Did you notice that's not Craig Biggio at second base right now?

Buck: No, Tim it's Bob Scoggins, the star of the new hit reality series, "The Imposter," in which Bob kidnaps a different person each week and takes on their identity until he gets either arrested, or maimed by someone in anger. "Entertainment Weekly" called it, "Television's first reality series that ensures somebody is getting sued."

Myers: Joe, if I can interrupt for a second, out of the blue I found Michael Rapaport of the new Fox hit comedy "The War at Home" sitting here by the Houston dugout. Now, if you don't mind I'm going to ask him a few inane questions, and make sure you watch me habitually nod and annoyingly smirk at him as he answers.

Buck: Six more days…six more days…six more days….

ROFL Spot on.

If Steinbrenner ever comes to a sudden stop, McCarver's head will go halfway up his ass.

They claim it looks better on TV for a national audience.

I just think having the roof closed on a perfect night for baseball is gay.

I'm a bit surprised by that roof order. Could you imagine if the NFL pulled the "don't make too much noise" rule on the Chiefs during a playoff game? This place would melt down, and rightfully so...

I've been downstairs watching the game with the wife. Didn't want anyone to think I was hiding.

Apparently. The Sox hitters are making decent contact, but for a change of pace aren't having any luck tonight (including that bullshit non-home run just now, but after all the breaks they've had no one can really complain about it).

Obviously, I'm not surprised the way this one's going. But Asswalt can't pitch every night.

CREDE!!!! YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD, YESSSSSSSSSSSS!

Hey look. The Sox are finally on the board. Bout time. I was beginning to think that having the roof open was good karma or something.

That Lane home run call was incorrect. Tough call though with that white on the billboard. Still, yet another huge umpire gaffe, I don't know what's up with that. They need to do something with that yellow line out there, that's a real tough call.

Not to be rude, but wouldn't a Rosa Parks moment of silence been more appropriate before the game? I found that odd, at least. And I can't listen to Aaron Neville sing that stuff without thinking of Horatio Sanz imitating him on SNL...

This should be interesting. Hermanson led the team in saves and is going to be seeing his first postseason action in Game 3 of the World Series. That means he hasn't pitched in darn near a month...

If they can't pull this one off I imagine there will be quite a few fans second guessing that decesion. Wonder if he comes back out in the 10th?

tk13
10-25-2005, 09:53 PM
Well you had to bring him in sometime, I guess. It didn't work there though.

I think Garner has made some interesting moves this inning. Going through 3 pitchers in an inning in a tied game.... better hope this game doesn't get extended for too long. I would've just brought Lidge in from the start and said heck with it, you can't afford to screw up now.

tk13
10-25-2005, 09:57 PM
Well they survived, I guess now they'll be able to extend Lidge through 11. These are two pretty good bullpens... but the Sox have better depth, having a guy like El Duque who can throw until his arm falls off in that bullpen is real nice.

Frazod
10-25-2005, 09:57 PM
Great, but annoying, game. :banghead:

I'm still hoping Lidge will shit himself again. Assuming it gets that far.

I just realized I have a crisis of conscience here....I’ve been pulling for the Astros this postseason, and I really don’t want the ChiSox to win (being a fan of both the Royals and both “Major League” movies...there was no third one made). BUT...I really hate Texans. I can’t believe I forgot that. I actually like White Sox fans, compared to their annoying counterparts, Cubs fans. What to do?
