Quote from: Eoin McLove on March 30, 2023, 10:51:24 AMI know absolutely nothing about the sport but I work with a guy who went over to the States and played, I am fairly sure it was at a pro level, I'm guessing 20 years ago or so. Fucked if I know how to spell his second name. Matty Goulet/Gouley/Gulet/Gully??? Goo-lay is the pronunciation anyway and he's an Aussie. I'll leave you to it now
Quote from: mickO))) on March 30, 2023, 12:23:58 PMI use to always go to Bluejays games when I lived in Canada it was only $8 for a ticket and was always a good night but I haven't really kept up with the MLB since I moved back home same with the NBA the times the games are on at for the most part is just too awkward.
Quote from: StoutAndAle on March 30, 2023, 01:45:42 PMI hear that. When I worked in pubs back in the day - I could watch more games, could even have a few pints in an empty bar room and watch them after closing up. These days I can just about manage the early games - the ones that start at 1300/1400hrs (EST/CT). Marcus Stroman is the first pitcher up for the Cubs tonight and that starts at 1920hrs Irish time so I can watch it. Other than that I have to go old school - avoid the result and watch the MLB highlights package. Same with the NFL/NBA/NHL. The West coast games are a total write off due to time differnce - highlights package only for me on those.
Quote from: Mower Liberation Front on March 30, 2023, 10:16:44 PMYankees fan here. Expecting them to make it to the postseason, but not much else. Still far too reliant on the long ball.Watching the game this evening, the pitch clock seems to be working quite well.
Quote from: StoutAndAle on March 30, 2023, 10:40:16 AMIt's going to be hard to look beyond the Houston Astros and the San Diego Padres to get to the World Series - the Padres to edge it.
Quote from: StoutAndAle on March 30, 2023, 10:40:16 AMThe Seattle Mariners may give the Astros some competition in the AL West but I can't see a miracle happening there.
Quote from: StoutAndAle on March 30, 2023, 10:40:16 AMThe Padres may feel some heat from the LA Dodgers who spend money like a Fianna Fáil TD ordering rounds in the Dáil bar but, again, I think this is the Padres' year in the NL West.
Quote from: StoutAndAle on March 30, 2023, 10:40:16 AMIn NL Central - the St. Louis Cardinals will probably do the same as last year - win the division and get battered in post season. I hope the Cardinals make shit of their year because obviously I want the Cubs make a good showing of themselves in the division.
Quote from: StoutAndAle on March 30, 2023, 10:40:16 AMThe New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays will slug it out in the AL East - I'm going to say the Blue Jays will take the division.
Quote from: StoutAndAle on March 30, 2023, 10:40:16 AMProbably the NY Mets in NL East. Can't see the Atlanta Braves keeping pace although they'll start and finish strong.
Quote from: StoutAndAle on March 30, 2023, 10:40:16 AMAL Central... who the fuck knows? It's like a shoot-out in the old West there.
