this probably would've garnered more interest if they didn't pick two awful teams this year
 
2022-08-11 6:54:48 PM  
I know they picked Cubs/Reds to honor the movies setting but Giants/Dodgers would have made more logical sense.

Cubs and Reds - the Cards lost to the Rox today.

This might be the last year I'll watch, before everything goes corporate. From what I've read, Frank Thomas & Co. are building a complex with a hotel, lots of fields, etc. No game next year because of construction. Glad I got to see just the original field a few years ago.

I'm on a work Zoom meeting (really, listening to a couple of old guys reminiscing about black baseball in Asheville and taking notes for an exhibit panel).  One guy is too loud on his mic and the guy I really want to hear from has a broken mic and I can barely hear him.

And still this sounds preferable to hearing Joe Buck.

What I'd like to see MLB do in the future to create interest -- build a small ballpark in a different location every year, play one game, then donate it to a high school or small college. But each field would be a version of a classic ballpark. The Polo Grounds, with it's crazy dimensions, Ebbets Field, L.A.'s Wrigley, Forbes Field, etc. And each ballyard would be built in a town without Major League Baseball, like Portland, Buffalo, or Detroit.

OH THAT'S RIGHT, he's at Amazon.  We live in a crazy world now.  And I suppose this game isn't blacked out in Iowa, either?

why the cubs stealing the red sox number font?  tried looking up how long they used it for and it only seemed like a handful of years from what i saw

Manfred could demand concessions in return, like more ghost runners in extras. hell, put a runner on each base to start the 10th, and the visiting team wins.

yay Cubbies! 1-0! that was fast (TWSS).

The caps are from the 1914 season, but the rest of the uniform is from 1929, and I guess they're channeling their inner Roger Hornsby tonight.

When they first proposed this back in early 2020, it was supposed to be Cardinals vs. Cubs. That was nixed for obvious reasons but the MLB in their infinite wisdom decided to have the Cubs face the Reds instead even though Cincinnati is much further from Iowa than St. Louis is.

if I drank every time Cubs radio said "corn," I'd already be plastered.

That field looks ridiculous. A fake barn, fake wood paneling, is the corn even real?
