Ah, if only that whole penal colony thing were true...

Is that the right article?

The joke is the penalty for the scrum is being sent to an island full of criminals. Hence the australia article.

I wonder if Arnold Schwarzenegger will throw out the first pitch.

Ahh good old MLB, providing the most boring TV in the world. Can we send condolences to the Aussies.

I guess they weren't aware of the penal codes in that state

"Do you understand the California Penal Code?"

Subby, if you would have stopped after "brawl," you would have had one of the most clever headlines ever.
 
2013-06-13 10:21:07 AM  
They still play baseball in this country? How quaint.

Penal colony? That anything like the California Penal League?

RTFA. I see what you did there, subby. Nice.
 
2013-06-13 10:59:41 AM  
make sure that penal colony is a life sentence.

Came for this.  Leaving satisfied. A tip of my hat to you, good sir.

Well at least they get to go to Australia, I always wanted to go there. Maybe they could try a few games in Europe too...
 
2013-06-13 11:56:22 AM  
Nice, subby.
 
2013-06-13 12:09:09 PM  
Australia. Australian for penal colony.

This type of thing is the smartest decision the MLB front office has made in a while.  Modern baseball wouldn't be at the level it's at without Latin America, and to a lesser extent Japan.  Gestures like this create fans now and players later.

Also, WHO RULE DODGERTOWN?
 
2013-06-13 02:05:16 PM  
If only there were an organized sport of some sort that they could play to bring that quirky cast of characters together and teach them all a little something about how we may look different, but that they may have more in common than they thought...

/funnier in my head
//Subby was much funnier

So if the Dodgers can't get their shiat together and climb out of the bottom of the division, atleast they can get into brawls for the sake of ratings.

Pathetic.

Penal colony? Is that where they send guys who act like dicks?
 
2013-06-14 02:01:45 PM  
Meh, another slap-fight fight between fit grown men with baseball bats where no blood is spilled.

One teeny tiny step towards the "World Series" actually being a world series.

MLB is the highest level of baseball play in the world with a significant percentage of its players being foreign born. So yes, it is a World Series.
