Any precedent on adding someone like Miley to the roster in place of Pressly for the time being, and then when Pressly is ready to go have Miley say he is injured? There is no other round for Miley to sit out afterwards like before.

Only thing that would make this better is if Marwin was standing the box bltching about the pitch.

Talk to the ole lady about these ticketa?
I'm out unfortunately. The tornado has had us scrambling at work and rescheduling patients from today to the next couple since we see people from out of town. There's no way I can get away from here to make either game.

Hope you're able to fill the seats

If Marwin was in the box it would be the longest ceremonial first pitch in history

I know we like to play the discomfort card often but this would be considered over the line and look REALLY suspicious.

If anyone wants a good laugh go read the Rangers thread. Arguing about how ugly their new park is, arguing about Odor, then doubting us against the Rays/Yanks......

I would think we would add Miley and drop Abreu. Pressley is on the roster if he's healthy enough to pitch.

The game would be delayed 20 minutes between this & Marwin adjusting all his stuff pre-pitch.

Need some help y'all

Wife & I are in Rome for a few days starting on her birthday (10/22), the onto Florence until next week.

Anyone know of either a late night bar in Rome that might Show the game, Or suggests a streaming service (Billasport maybe?) where we could watch on our IPads?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Not sure about Rome, but I could recommend a place for Florence if you are going to be there during a game.

As for watching online, it will be on Youtube TV. So maybe get a free trial subscription so you can stream it.

Funny you mention that because earlier today their thread was above ours and just instinctively clicked it.

The most recent post was about how they're one FA singing away from having an absolutely salty rotation.

Sure thats them? MLB network said they will have their press conference within the hour and that planes not landing for another 45 min. Cutting it pretty close.

YouTube TV won't work outside the United States unless you can find a way to trick it with a VPN. On my phone though the YouTube TV app detected use of a VPN and wouldn't function. It might be easier to pull off on a laptop.

Interesting take:

Quote:

Fresh off a heartbreaking loss to the Astros in the American League Championship Series and a decade removed from their last World Series title, the Yankees are heading into a pivotal offseason. New York has been eliminated from the postseason by Houston in three of the past five years, and general manager Brian Cashman will be tasked with making moves that finally put the club over the top.

Ace right-hander Gerrit Cole is expected to be a target, but MLB Network insider Joel Sherman thinks the club should also look elsewhere for a big splash. In an article for the New York Post, Sherman suggests calling the Indians to see if 25-year-old shortstop Francisco Lindor is available.

"Look, the Yankees are ready to win now and Lindor is everything they need," Sherman writes. "A switch-hitting shortstop with power, speed, limited strikeouts, defensive excellence at short and proven postseason fearlessness. The Yanks' athleticism improved from 2017 to '19. But on the same field, the Astros look like they're playing fastbreak and the Yanks slow down to half-court."

Lindor can become a free agent after the 2021 season, and Indians chairman/CEO Paul Dolan has admitted that it will be a challenge to re-sign him, as he will likely command a contract north of $300 million.

Guarantee they are going to go after Cole and they will overpay for no other reason to make him completely unaffordable for the Astros.

Most streaming apps would require a VPN overseas so to mask where you're at...reddit streams is probably an easier all in choice
