Found August 14, 2013 on Lady At The Bat:
Yes, it really did happen, folks. The Yankees scored 14 runs last night, on 19 hits.I don't even remember the last time this team put on such a potent display of offense. It was great to see and, after so many tension-filled, low-scoring contests this season, it was nice to be able to relax during a game.The offensive pieces the Yankees have been missing all season long showed up last night, and if they hang around, this team might just win the 30+ games manager Joe Girardi thinks are needed to make the playoffs.Winning all those games might be difficult if the pitching doesn't keep up with the offense. Last night it barely kept up. CC Sabathia gave up only two earned runs on three hits over six innings.

Replay For Balls And Strikes, Good Or Bad For Baseball?

Deadspin has suggested that MLB has considered using instant replay for calls that aren’t balls or strikes. The question becomes, is this good or bad for baseball? I will take an objective approach to this question, although it will be tough for me since I am a baseball purist. Let me begin with a quote. “Baseball is only a game. True. And the grand canyon is only a hole in...
