    Overseas baseball is back!

    Big DP, nice feed from the pitcher. *Big in that it erased the baserunner from the error.

    Overseas baseball is back!

    All true and thanks for the link to the podcast. I also dig morning baseball. It's like (a less-exciting) Patriots' Day every day.

    Overseas baseball is back!

    The Taiwanese game does seem to have a talent imbalance between pitching and hitting. Or, at least, a different talent balance (a less enjoyable one for me personally as a bigger fan of pitching).

    Sac fly, so it's now 8-7 with one out and the tying run on first in the bottom of the 9th.

    And Monkeys trying to mount a rally here in the bottom of the 9th down 5. Bases loaded, no outs.

    Overseas baseball is back!

    It's been an eventful game. Brothers' starter balked in a runner who was trying to steal home, collision at first base resulting from a bad throw by the Monkeys' starter (which I think would be interference in MLB given that the runner was in fair territory?), and the Brothers have gone on a...

    Overseas baseball is back!

    Having no connection to any of these locations, team owners, or players I'm thinking of picking a team to root for based on mascot - which leads to the choice between the Monkeys and the Brothers (elephant). I'll decide before their game tomorrow morning. Who is everyone rooting for and why?

    Overseas baseball is back!

    Does anyone have a reliable website for the CPBL schedule? And are they always streaming on the Eleven Sports Twitter account? I've found this: https://www.scoreboard.com/baseball/taiwan/cpbl/fixtures/ but I don't know if it's accurate or if there's a better site. If that link is correct, the...

    Bad call gives Minnesota power play; Minnesota scores. Terriers have looked terrible, though.

    Derek Jeter: Countdown to Retirement

    What I meant by prestigious was that those awards go to fewer players and thus are harder to win. The concept of prestige is subjective anyway. But, to me, being one of two or one of eighteen would feel more prestigious than being one of 80 in a popularity contest.

    Derek Jeter: Countdown to Retirement

    Fair enough. And for the record, I wouldn't expect anyone to turn down an award or accolade no matter how undeserving. Has any professional athlete ever "refused" an award?

    Derek Jeter: Countdown to Retirement

    Read the quoted post. I'm only trying to illustrate that the idea that he isn't playing because he's embarrassed and knows he doesn't deserve it is absurd. Gold Gloves and Hank Aaron Awards are more select and prestigious honors than All-Star selections, and he has never been too embarrassed to...
