Ah, across the pond
Three Eighty-Five to center?
Brits dig the long ball.

So yeah, this is going to be pretty awesome. I have to think we see the balls absolutely soar this series in kind of a weird mix of Oakland’s massive foul ground and a less extreme version of Lakeshore Park in Chicago, circa 1884 (186 feet to left, 300 feet to center field, 190 feet to right). A total O/U of 11.5 by Bovada seems criminally low.

Let’s make a good statement of opening intent, move pass the boundaries that may hinder success, hopefully not duck any screaming liners, and play ball!

It sounds like the roof might come into play this weekend, anything that hits there is an immediate dead ball (unlike in Tampa) unless it is a home run.

Also worth noting that two weeks ago today NY traded for Encarnacion and they are 11-1 since with the only loss to Verlander.

I’m going tomorrow to see the Red Sox live for the first time.
But ... six down with two outs already and Porcello hooked already. Hoping for better tomorrow.
Thought the anthems were nice though.

Good job a) tomorrow’s first pitch is at ten past three BST b) I’ve booked the last train back to Yorkshire. This game might last seven hours

If nothing else, very happy to see the Yankees hitting Wright today, since he was kryptonite to them for a while.

I wish I had bet on those OU lines. Man. And yeah, DJ can stay. I love him unconditionally.

Play a game with some origins in cricket, get a T50 match length.

Yikes, hoping for just cramps for Voit there but this is nuts.

The specific prediction shouldn’t be mocked. Making, or referencing, a prediction based not on a small sample size, but NO sample?

Well, by golly, that should be mocked, given how worthless and stupid it is.
