The Cubs are the best team, take a look through their history as they are never boring

Assume all on late in the night? I was hoping to record one and watch without knowing the score. I might give YouTube a go, thanks. I don't really understand it yet but always happy to take on a new sport. Mind you I think they are missing a trick not bothering their arses with the Olympics any more.

Plenty of afternoon games, which start around 6pm our time.

MLB.com has two free games on live at the moment

Bugger, missed this. I will keep checking that site, thanks. 🙂

50 years ago today the Pittsburgh Pirates fielded the first all-Black lineup in Major League Baseball.

This has to be phrased differently now......

Either - "......in what was then deemed Major League Baseball"

or ".......in the NL or AL"

The Negro Leagues are now considered to be Major League.

It's not Major League for me unless Charlie Sheen played in it. :)

Seriously, thanks for the pedantic clarification which I will now undoubtedly use to annoy an American tourist at some stage in the future. ;D

Does that mean Jackie Robinson is no longer considered to be the first African American to play in Major League Baseball?

He wasnít, even before the reclassification.

Some exciting races going on for the post season, AL wild card in particular. Changing every day, will be a roller coaster couple of weeks.

Blue Jays looked to be running away with one wild card spot but have cooled off now.

The Red Sox schedule is favourable, with their last six games against the awful Orioles and Nats.

Shame that the Giants and Dodgers won't meet again in the regular season. Itíll be interesting to see who wins the division and who has to play in the wild card game

Yes it's crazy one of them will have a win or bust game with the reward to play the other. Meanwhile NL East winner will have 80 odd wins and easier division series.

If they can't win enough games this week against the terrible Orioles and Nationals, the Sox don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

Given the roster, they've done very well to even be in with a shout of the AL wild card

The NL wild card race has had quite the turn around in the past couple of weeks, with a remarkable run from the Cards coinciding with a collapse by the Padres.

I had a decent sized bet against the Blue Jays winning the AL just before they went on their good run four weeks ago (was able to lay them at what were daft odds at the time), so have been following the results with keen interest lately even though I haven't watched a game for years.

I think it will be Yankees-Sox and Dodgers-Cards wild card games. Which will be a couple of bumper nights for TV at least.

Who do you think will win it all? I'm going Rays to go one better.

60 years ago today Roger Maris hit his 61st home run of the season to break Babe Ruth's record.
