Beginners Guide, number 6: Those rules explained

I regularly heard the words from Jimmy Greaves, ‘It’s a funny old game’ when watching Saint and Greavsie. But football is a fairly straightforward game. Whilst the offside rule is infuriating at the moment, the concept is pretty simple, and that is about as complicated as it gets in that particular sport. Baseball, on the…

An American baseball story in England

Having got in touch with me after a couple of posts, I was interested to learn more about Mark, an American now living not far from me in England; his involvement in the game here, how he keeps on top of all things MLB and his views on his beloved Boston Red Sox. Mark, I…

Buster is back!

I’ve wanted an excuse for nearly a year to write about my favourite player, Buster Posey, Catcher for the San Francisco Giants, and now I think this is an opportune time to do so. Two games into the season and Buster has hit two solo home runs (his only hits so far in 8 at…

My Spring Training awards

With the new MLB season now staring, here’s my very brief look back at some takeaways I took from Spring Training 2021, from the games I saw. Just wanted to acknowledge some moments of the last month, my favourite being the last one on the list… Best interview: Tim Anderson (CWS) on 24th March Loudest…

My path to baseball stardom

Being such a huge baseball fan brings many emotions; excitement (and this is building as our fantasy draft draws ever nearer and the MLB Opening Day is just days away), anticipation (could the Giants realistically topple the Padres and Dodgers? At this moment, I’m going to say ‘yes’!) and frustration (see last emotion and the…

It’s nearly here!

Some call it Spring Fever, others call it pre-season excitement, for me, this is the time I can most liken to the feeling you got around December 1st when you were 8 years old. That feeling is nervous anticipation. Counting down the days to Opening Day, which this year is April 1st, and I look…

2021 Predictions – Part 6: NL West & WS champs

And so to the final part of this series, where I have predicted the outcome of each division. Here, I will round off by giving you who I think will win the World Series. In the coming weeks, I will have a bash at predicting the award winners, but I’m not there just yet. Spring…

2021 Predictions – Part 5: NL Central

I don’t know why, but the NL Central doesn’t excite me as many of the other divisions do, even though the race could be a really close one between 4 teams, although, realistically, I think it does come down to 2. My excitement level may be lower just be because it is sandwiched between the…

2021 Predictions – Part 4: NL East

With the American League dealt with, over to the National League, starting with the East. I am still celebrating the fact that there will be no DH In the NL. Great decision, well done MLB. This might be the hardest division to predict (I guess time will tell on that!) and I said that last…

2021 Predictions – Part 3: AL West

I find this a very bizarre division. With the resources at their disposal, the Angels, Astros and Rangers should dominate this division and the As should always be lagging behind. The Mariners will always be the ‘also rans’. But in recent years, it hasn’t panned out this way. So far, I have the Blue Jays…
