    If, the conversation went negative about the Reds performance on the field, you went with it and, if the person had something positive to say about the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, then, you went along with that line of conversation.

    So, "Hows about them Cincinnati Reds?"

    ETA: If I were going to follow a baseball team, it would be the New York Yankees.

    My second favorite team... except when the Pirate fanatics (ie the Boss and Little Miss Field Day) are in the room, of course.

    My favorite team? The one I grew up rooting for in NNJ, and it sure as heck wasn’t the Muckiing Fets.

    Latest game ended in 3 days. We were top of standings for around an hour until another game also finishing today ended, so back to 2nd.

    At a meeting with club managment during the lunch interval yesterday. We were advised that a NFL type strength of schedule may be introduced for the Championship. As the previous three seasons may be 1st, 3rd and 2nd, we could be the No 1 seed.

    No doubt you are all aware as the news has knocked what President Trump has said off the front pages. England are the new World Champions of Cricket. They beat New Zealand on a tie breaker in the final. There is a discussion whether a run should have counted in the England Innings or not. Once the Umpires and Scorers have confirmed the score it is too late to review. Tough.

    Cricket? I thought this was a thread about Baseball!

    Changing the subject, well, dare I say it... (“Dare! Dare!” — Gene Wilder) ... isn’t cricket!
