The MLB Baseball topic

Postby Big Boss Man » Fri May 12, 2017 4:18 am

Any other BGers watch Baseball. Watched a good Orioles/Red Sox game recently. Had some hilarious commentary at points too. We get quite a few games on each week on ESPN which are also other station broadcasts so sometimes they are from Fox Sports too.

I love baseball. I just don't talk about it because hbk72777 and Criff don't post anymore so I didn't think anybody else here liked it. Cricket is far more popular on BG. But I only see that when I go to the liquor store because the Indian guy who owns it always has the Indian Cricket league on his TV.

Yeah, the Sox and O's series was great outside of those piece of shit fans who used racial slurs to Adam Jones. The game tonight against the Nationals is probably rained out.

Bryce Harper took a new deal with the Nationals.



Plus $500,000 if he's the NL batting champ.

Yea I don't think baseball has too much of a following in the UK, unlike the NFL and NBA they don't have a game here. Found this which is quite interesting: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-23425907 There is surprisingly a British baseball league. ESPN UK shows like 2 games + a day when there's a game on from Fox Sports, ESPN, Root Sports etc. so hopefully it's popularity will improve. There's like rounders here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rounders which is like a very simplified version of baseball, or more so softball.

I like baseball, got into it when I was in the states following the Nationals. We don't get alot of games shown here though, we get a couple of ESPN games a week but thats it. I'm not sure why they don't show more, the foxsports channels show nothing in the morning but replays so it would make sense to fill atleast a couple of the 7 Foxsports channels with MLB.

That's an embarrassing fight. Bryce wouldn't make it in MMA.

Slightly off topic but I'm a little pissed off about the Tap Sports Baseball I drafted Aaron Judge and he's disappeared from my team. He had like average stats and I upped his skill level but now he's vanished. I am assuming the game has him as a franchise player now but still. Give me some first round draft picks or something to compensate. I guess he took his talents to parts unknown!!
