    Yeah, me too.

    I ended up buying my parents a new record, when I was a teenager. My brother and I wore the original out!

    I have the CD now. It has bonus material.

    So... getting back on track. 7 PM tonight. Cleveland Indigenous Inhabitants at the Pittsburgh 20 Year Losing Streak.

    About damn time!

    Just wish we could be there in person. So much for Season Tickets.

    First game in the Bob Willis Trophy has concluded. Two wicket win and an exciting finish. I was listening on line as I am meant to be working from home. Also the video feed only has one camera, which is like only seeing only what is happening on home plate. Also the action looks like a film of the street in 1899.

    The next opponents have players missing, injured, in the England training camp or stuck in South Africa. We will probally lose two days early by an innings.

    Played game 2.

    Crept towards a not great total. Opponents got around 75 less. 2nd Innings, with this enough to set a target that could not be reached and won before tea on the last day.

    Game 3 starts today, or should start if it is not raining. There are weather warnings for Thunderstorms all over the UK at the moment.

    Another victory. The low totals and lack of batting bonus point may count against making the final.

    As for the title of this thread. Is there actually any meaningful Baseball going on at present?

    Game 3 draw. Less than 1 days play in the 4 days rain.

    One day Blast this afternoon rained off as well.

    Did MLB just say they're sitting out any more games?

    They have started the one day T20 Blast. A rain out, tie and three losses, so it looks like no playoffs. Today in the Bob Willis Trophy a player had a positive Covid test so a game was abandoned at lunch on the 1st day. There was no official announcement until after tea, so the score was stuck on 66-6 with no information as to what had happened for around three hours.

    Wrapped the final game up before lunch on the 3rd day and into the final, opponents to known after the results of games that have gone into the 4th day. It starts on the 23rd. Ask your local cable provider to show it, all five days.
