      Heading stateside for a month on Thursday and have planned, among other things, four nights in Chicago with the missus from 11th-15th August. On my (quite extensive) bucket list is I hope - over time - to get to every MLB stadium at least once. Have been to a few games in San Francisco (what a place that is!), been to Dodger Stadium (and will be again on this trip) and have been to Yankee Stadium (unfortunately only the new).

      So as I'm in Chicago for those few days, the Cubs have a home stand against the Brewers, ecstatic to finally experience Wrigley! And then on the 14th the Cubs take a short trip south and visit their neighbors in the White Sox at US Cellular. So within a couple days I'll knock off a couple stadiums on the list and just get to experience some good old fashioned ball park hangs. Pretty stoked about it.

      Small side-note as well, Bears hosting the Dolphins in preseason football as well so will be catching that. Needless to say where my tourism dollar lands whenever I visit major cities :D

      It's been reported today that the Red Sox manager has stage 1 lymphoma so here's hoping he has a healthy recovery from the treatment he is due to have. Of course he will be stepping aside for the remainder of the Baseball season and the assistant coach - Torey Lovullo - will take over.

      Im Feeling good. Been a Cubs fan forever. Just beat the dreaded Cards for a trip to the NLCS. Amazing.  This team is loaded with talent and they are all so young. Could be a dynasty team like the Braves were in the 90's. They are so fun to watch. Im absolutely BUZZING.

      Hats off to the Royals.  Incredible team.  It's gonna take some time for me to get over this loss.  Great season for the Mets considering we were expected to not even be in the playoff picture.

      I'm a jays fan I was very disappointed about getting shut down by the Indians who were missing 2 great pitchers in Salazar and Carreaso. I was reading on twitter today in Chicago there are fans lining up at the bars around the field at 5:30am to get ready for game 3 tonight

      So what's this baseball all about? Switched onto Red Sox v Yankees (which is America's equivalent of Liverpool v Mancs right?) and see they play each other something like 4 times in two days? Why?! I'm guessing these games are played until there is a winner which is why this game has lasted so long?

      Regular season has 160 odd games,cos of distance between cities,they always play a 2/3 game series.Sometimes play double headers 2 games in one day if the weather cancels games.Dull as f**k to me but i know a few people that really get into it,one's an Evertonian so that might explain.....

      Defo spot on with the rivalry comparison. Probably lost a bit of lustre with the Red Sox finally breaking their hoodoo in 2004, and then the Yankees being sh*t for a few years. But both teams fighting for division this year, bit of feeling back in it.

      As Boston not LA said, 162 game regular season, so play every day except for a few off days every month. So they play series, 3-4 games at a time against a team. And as he also mentioned, if there is a rain out on one day then they'll play a doubleheader if possible to fit the games in still. Games always played until a winner as well, man I remember watching a Red Sox game until almost midnight when I lived in Oregon - that was almost 3am Boston time! :D

      I love baseball myself. I know it's a boring sport to some, but I love it. Wife is from LA, Dodger fan - so she's hoping this is the year she sees them in the World Series for the first time in her life. We have tickets booked to LA during World Series time in case they make it, if not then we'll see some basketball and hockey anyway, and her family of course. But very much hoping to be watching some baseball!

      I'm hoping the Yanks make it as well, but not sure how her family will like me bringing my Yankees cap and Jeter jersey :D

      I imagine their love of Baseball is as baffling to us as the love of cricket is to them.

      It reminds me of an episode of the Simpsons where Homer has to stay tee-total for a month, he goes to a Baseball game and sits there
      looking around for a while before saying "I never realised how boring this game was"  :lmao: :lmao:

      Blue Jays are off to a pretty good start considering Donaldson has been hurt play or on the DL for first could weeks and Tulo has been on DL since start of the season. Players like Solarte and Diaz have been coming up with big hits when needed and the team just seems to come up with ways to win. I won't get ahead of myself too much I want to see where the record is after we play the yankees and red sox the next 7 days as they are the team jays will be competing with if they want to make the playoffs

      Just make sure the pine tar is well out of the way if my Aussies end up down there...

      Nope. I tried. Still too raw. Like sandpaper to my heart.
