The Marlins are unbeaten since they were allowed to resume playing. Incredible, considering the patched together squad due to positive tests

Talk about a late career call up, for the first time since 1915 Buffalo becomes a Major League city again.......albeit just for one season

20 years ago today I was at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal for the final game of my 30 ballparks in 32 days trip

That's me in the middle, apparently doing something unspeakable to my mate Red :)

Good job there's no relegation in Baseball. Here are the last nine Red Sox results

Miami should not have settled for three field goals :)

Marlins 9, Braves 29  :o  :o

World Series between Tampa and LA is currently tied 1-1

I feared an easy 4-0 sweep for the Dodgers

Today I learned the Dutch word for baseball is honkbal. Adds nothing to anything, but it amused my barely-ever suppressed inner five-year-old.

Generally cheer for the AL team apart from the Red Sox and Astros (who are more NL anyway) but a mate's from Tampa Bay and a big Rays fan so hope they win. Sh!t ball park though.

The Trop gets a lot of criticism that's over the top IMO

I've been to games there and it's not as bad as people make out.

Great game four, with a bizarre ending involving a double misfield, a tumble and some crawling along the ground :)
