    baseball

    Anyone follow it or have a team to follow?

    Detroit Tigers for me, family connection.

    The circus that occasionally calls itself the Dodgers.

    The Amazins - the New York Mets for me. Glutton for punishment although I do fancy our chances this year

    Detroit Tigers for me too funnily enough! Studied in Michigan for a bit and a close friend took to me Comerica a few times.

    I also lived in New England for a bit when I was a bit younger so I grew up supporting the Pawtucket Red Rox - as a result, I also support Boston by association.

    Will be keeping my eyes on the Mariners this year too - got a private tour of SafeCo field back in December (which was a pretty memorable experience) and loved Seattle as a city!
    Okay, technically I'm a serial killer...

    And so it begins!

    Cubbies of course. It's going to be a strange season being every ones tip for the world series this year. Best price is 8/1, ridiculous for the 'lovable losers'.

    I think 8s is reasonable. Strengthened the line up and weakened the Cards. Should top the standings. Just don't want to see the Mets in a best of seven with that staff but they could have problems getting to October.

    Mets. Last year was a great ride. I was in NY for most of the playoffs. Superb.

    Cincinatti Res. Visited friends in Ohio a few years back and took in a game.

    Going through a bit of a rebuild so low expectations for this season.

    Jays for me. Spent a bit of time in Toronto as a teenager, and got the bug there. Had a few late nights watching the post season playoffs last year. Around 5 hours watching a fantastic 13 innings against Texas, only for them to cock it up in the 14th and get beat 6-4. I have a knack of picking teams that do things like that to me 😫

    Tigers for me too. No connection other than I liked the name.

    Cubs Giants starting on BT Sport at 7:15. Could be a dress rehearsal for the pennant game?

    Potential Divisional series match up. Cubs certs as no. 1 seed Giants looking like Wild Cards.

    I still fancy the Dodgers to blow their lead in the west.

    The Cubbies leading 2-1 in the 8th. Lester a machine.

    Mets, only because I know someone vaguely who is a big fan - and he gave me a cap last year when he was over for golf.

    Blue Jays vs Rangers. Unmissable. Bad blood still festering from last season and the match ups earlier this year. I'm going for two bench clearings.

    So its the Giants. It makes sense the Cubs keep winning, the rotation is ridiculously powerful, some really strong young bats led by Kris Bryant, best defence in the league and the Giants are batting .147 against us this season.

    ...but the Cubs will clearly find a way to mess it up anyway

    And they make sure Bumgarner only faces them once. Cubs offence licking their lips as soon as they knock the Giants starters out.

    Great stuff from the Cubbies at Wrigley Field last night. I know someone who was there and described it as 'religious'!! Also early leads for Toronto over Texas, the Tribe looking good against the Red Sox, and the Dodgers over Washington.

    Still can't believe that ninth inning from the cubs.

    Nationals v dodgers bottom of 8 and I can't take my eye off it. Out...dodgers in command!
