      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

      Toronto Blue Jays must have one of the best crests/badges in world sport. Don't know too much about baseball but I love it lots!

      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.

      ...

      ....

      Okay I'll see myself out.

I watched the game last night at the pub not to many people out to watch which kinda surprised me was pretty decent for a baseball match,read somewhere that people were trying to get the music guy at fenway to play "Boston not la"!would of been funny as f**k to hear it.

      I tried hard to stay up last night to watch the game but bowed out after 13 innings when LA tied it again, good decision as it took 18 innings and 7 hours and 20 minutes to finish.

      Red Sox end up wrapping up the World Series last night, they were the best team in baseball and I always felt whoever was coming out of the AL was going to win it. Happy for Price who took a lot of stick for being a poor post season pitcher he had a great outing last night.

      Congrats.  As a Mets fan in New Jersey with relatives that still live in Brooklyn,I was brought up to hate the Dodgers.
