Coming in future weeks: Breaking OOTP, Red Wings programs, Bizarre Baseball Culture, etc.

As the postseason slowly starts to wind down, here’s a preview of what can be expected in the coming weeks:

  • The Return of “Breaking OOTP”, beginning with MARIO vs. BACKYARD BASEBALL.
  • The return of the lookback at Rochester Red Wings programs, including the early 90s, a program from the 1970s, and so on.
  • BIZARRE BASEBALL CULTURE finally returns, with one of the Ultimate Sports Force comics.
  • The long-awaited and oft-delayed return of the Baseball Continuum Continuucast
  • When Fallout 4 comes out, I’ll have a rundown of baseball elements in it, as post-apocalyptic Fenway will be a location in the game.
  • World Baseball Classic updates/projections.
  • And my votes for the IBWAA awards will be revealed.

 

So keep an eye out!

Kevin Long will remain the Yankees’ hitting coach, and by all accounts he’s one of the best hitting coaches in the league.

RIP Astrodome.

Stuff that has happened since the last time Jamie Moyer pitched for the Orioles

On September 16, 1995, Jamie Moyer came in and pitched 1.1 innings in a relief appearance for the Baltimore Orioles against the Yankees. The game was called due to rain after six innings.

Moyer has not pitched for the Orioles since then.
