Very interesting, thanks for posting... I wonder what would happen if there was ever a salary cap in football.

It says Panama beat Cuba but then later it refers to a club called Toros de Herrera. So each club represents their nation?

Having Googled it , I see now:

Group A
Cuba: Leñadores de las Tunas
Mexico: Charros de Jalisco
Venezuela: Cardenales de Lara

Group B
Puerto Rico: Cangrejeros de Santurce
Dominican Republic: Estrellas Orientales
Panama: Toros de Herrera

Baseball game delayed due to falling fish

"It has dropped a fish in the outfield! It’s an osprey out there that just dropped a fish out in shallow right field. And now a bald eagle has entered the scene and everything has come to a halt. The eagle comes in and chases the osprey away, makes him drop the fish. … Connor Stephens is going out into shallow right. Is he going to go try and get the fish before the eagle gets it? The eagle’s circling overhead, Stephens has the fish wrapped up in a towel, and he makes his way back over to the home dugout."

Harper to the Phillies for $330m over 13 years.

Even after that contract ends, Bobby Bonilla will still be getting paid by the Mets

Happy Opening Day(ish) everyone. Three of my friends are in Tokyo for the games. I'm a bit jealous to say the least

The LA Angels of Anaheim are close to agreeing a new deal with Mike Trout that will be worth $430m  :o

Tokyo has gone Ichiro mad. I've just finished work in Suidobashi, which is close to Tokyo Dome, which is hosting all (?) games, I believe.

Get yourself out here some day UK Redsox!

I was planning to come over a few years ago when the Red Sox opened the season over with you. As soon as the games were announced I contacted my mate who runs baseball tours* but he wasn't planning anything. I then contacted the Sox but they weren't doing anything either.

Therefore I went ahead and booked a trip to the States instead. Just after that, the Sox contacted me to say that they were now planning a trip. However, since I'd committed to the US trip, I couldn't go.

My mate organised the current trip but the timing didn't work out for me to join them.

Hopefully I'll make it over some day.

Today could be the end of a long and illustrious career, as Ichiro Suzuki plays what will probably be his final Major League game
