Well this is it, my new site is up and running with all of the posts and comments from the previous blog having been moved across. Setting up this new site has involved a fair bit of planning and I thought everything was finally in place this morning. A few minor problems had to be [...]
Waking up this morning, I expected to see reams of stories about Dice-K and Ichiro battling it out last night in the Seattle-Boston clash. I didn’t realise Felix Hernandez was starting for the Mariners. He has long been known as King Felix and anyone who wasn’t convinced that this youngster deserved the title will now [...]
As noted in the comments last week, MLB.com are currently offering a free five-day trial of MLB.TV for those of you considering whether or not to sign-up. It’s a great way for newcomers to give the system a proper test-run to see how it will work on your set-up and what the picture quality is [...]
This is the start of what will hopefully be a weekly feature (hence the name). My week will run from Saturday to Saturday, purely on the basis that I should always have time on a Sunday to write it as opposed to cobbling something together after getting home from work on a Monday evening.

Most British baseball fans develop a daily ritual whereby one of their first tasks in the morning is to log on to MLB.com and check the results from the previous day’s play. You scour the scoreboard to see who won (and by how many runs) and then check the basic facts such as who was [...]

But perhaps the funniest bit was the news that the authorities in Canada have ordered two of the Blue Jays’s promotional adverts to be [...]
It cannot have escaped your attention that Daisuke Matsuzaka makes his Major League debut today for the Red Sox. Boston set it up for him yesterday, beating the Royals to tie the series 1-1 and allowing Matsuzaka to try to win the rubber match. First pitch is scheduled for 19.10 (BST) and it promises to [...]
Great to see that the Daily Rewind is back on MLB.com this season. It’s an invaluable way to keep up with all the action every day. My favourite clip today was from the Red’s game. There have been some hilariously bad ceremonial first pitches thrown over the years, but Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory’s was probably [...]
Baseball is back, with so many games going on at once it’s hard to keep up!
I’m aware that some of you may not be able to watch MLB.TV this year for a variety of reasons out of your control, so apologies for rubbing it in but boy does baseball come back with a bang! Aces are out in force on Opening Day (well, opening days and nights) and the majority [...]
