Do we have any forum members who follow the sport? We're not far away from the play-offs this season, and it looks doubtful that my team (the Toronto Blue Jays) will be able to secure a slot.

 

Any predictions? Or does anyone follow a particular team?

I used to follow it. Texas Rangers fan. When Channel 5 stopped showing it I slowly fell out of it though.

 

Are Josh Hamilton and Pujols still the daddies?

Pujos doesn't have monster seasons but is still capable of putting 35-40 homers a year; Lance Berkman has been a beast for the Cards by putting up comparable hits. Shame the rest of the Cards aren't putting in as much work or we wouldn't be 10 games behind the sodding Brewers. Who we will probably be surrendering the NL Central to in three games time.

Bautista is the main man in Toronto at present, along with Brett Lawrie. Still, being in one of the toughest divisions in the league doesn't do the Jays any favours.

Yeah the Blue Jays, although not so much since Doc left :(

Box scores on SI.com and hardballtalk for news and rumours. I always catch a game or two if I can when I'm in Toronto.

Yeah, it's great value for money, isn't it? I was at the series against the Royals.

Part time follower and another who has slowly fallen out of love since Channel 5 lost the rights.

 

Did manage to go to Fenway for a Red Sox game when the missus and I were over there in July, fantastic ball park!

 

I've got a soft spot for the Marlins, only because the 2003 World Series was the first I watched and love supporting an underdog

this is pretty much the same as me, I keep an eye out but thats about it. Really wish Channel 5 did sports again.

 

I really like the Houston Astros, no idea why....just wanted to support a team that never won a World Series when I started following MLB.

 

Whos the favourites then for this year?

Used to play a primitive form of baseball with my mates about 8-9 years ago. Followed the Expos at that point but, as they are now more, I've got a soft spot for the Royals.

I am usually forced to watch baseball! My husband is a New York Yankee. He is American though, they're kinda obsessed with it over here. I've never personally been able to get into it. The games are stupidly long.

 

I keep toying with the idea of getting myself a Red Sox jersey as a joke.

Another Jays fan here. Desperately hoping for 82 wins this season. Delighted by the play of Canada's own Brett Lawrie since his call up to the bigs and of course the free swinging Joey Bats. I'd love to see Doc Halladay win a ring with the Phillies this year, particularly if they can knock off an AL East team in the World Series.
