  • Major League Baseball 2018

    Last year's MLB thread was the most popular on PNE-Online according to most of the available research......with over 100 pages of intelligent, witty and observant comment on the baseball season. Now it's back again.

    The Spring pre-season Leagues are underway with the main season starting on March 29th. Between then and September 30th, each team will play 162 games, which given the travelling is one hell of a schedule.

    For a bargain 100 you can sign up to mlbtv which gives you every single game live, every game replayed, condensed highlights of about 15 mins and short highlights. Compared to the rip off that is football coverage in this country, that, my friends is a bloody bargain.

    Jays 9 Orioles 3 yesterday. I have to get this in now as I doubt the regular season will be quite so enjoyable !

    Athletics crush the Angels 7-3 and the Phillies smash the Yankees 7-6.

    All in all, a very good day!!

        Good thing spring training doesn't mean anything. My prediction for this season would be a Yankees-Nationals final with the Yankees taking it in 5 games.

          I have a feeling that the Os are going to be as abysmal this season as they were from May onwards in 2017. It's the hope that kills you......

            Yesterday - split squad...

            Orioles 7 Red Sox 3

            Phillies 0 Orioles 4

            What's not to like (as Sask says, it doesn't mean a whole lot); take comfort from a ray of optimism .

            In other games...

            Cubs 2 A's 7

            Pirates 5 Jays 0

              These pre season games mean the square root of damn all (as you and Sask and JC say). The Os fans don't appear to be particularly positive about the upcoming season, but if I were a native of baltimore, I'd be an eternal pessimist!

                      Exactly.

                      Actual odds are:

                      Astros 13/2
                      Yankees 13/2
                      Jays 28/1
                      Os 80/1
                      As 125/1

                      Someone clearly don't know shit about baseball!

                            128/1 maybe for a laugh. Out of interest, what odds the Nationals?
