Weird. Watching Tampa Bay dome ball. So quiet with no crowd that you can hear the thunder from the Florida storm outside.

And, so far, the catwalks and lights haven't come into play. They seem to for every Yankee series in that dome. Although Rays outfielder sorta lost one in the dome "sky".

And top of the 6th and the light ring on the dome ceiling comes into play. Judge hit either the 3rd or 4th ring. 1st and 2nd ring are in play. 3rd and 4th are homers. Dome ball. :rolleyes:

Looking like Giancarlo Stanton is going to win the Yankee's Ellsbury Fragility Award again this year. Off to a good start than hamstring for who knows how long. I've tried to like this guy but he's freakin' made of glass. He can't even survive DH'g at 30 years old?

Aaron Judge is going to challenge Stanton for the 2020 Jacoby Ellsbury Fragility Award. Leading the league in big flies and hot as the dickens so of course blows out a calf. Love this guy but he's made of glass just like Glassbury and Stanton. :(

It's ******* ridiculous these guys can't string together more than a handful of games without breaking.

Baseball is insufferable with its "unwritten rules". Most of the time the "unwritten rules" just enable a bunch of whining by players who can't handle get their @sses kicked.
I do get some of them. It can make the game unique. But to tell a guy to take a strike and get upset with him for going deep? Come on...

Seems like pretty much all of baseball is on Tatis side on this one so hopefully this episode of "Dumb Unwritten Rules" is a quick one. Padres manager was an idiot for not sticking up for him

Most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, and for his own manager not to have his back on that is disgusting. It was 10- 3 when he hit it, and it was the top of the 8th. Am I to believe the Rangers would not have tried to score...just put their bats on their shoulders...in the bottom of the 8th and bottom of the 9th?

Stupid

Unbelievably stupid argument. This is major league baseball. If you don't like a guy hitting a ball you put on a tee for him, then don't do it.

And if that manager wants to stay the manager, I'd probably not criticize your 21 year old who is leading the league in RBIs and HRs over something this stupid. Seems like a good way to not be the manager any more.
