Any descendant of Pocket Pool? If so, I might get 3 to 5 games in a day. Just waiting on the ruling. ;-7

To make this quick because I had a nice write up and this dang laptop wants to erase meaning for words. I am just saying it would be easier for a Cricket bowler to become accustom to the various styles of pitching a baseball.

Look at it like this, it would take the bowler less time to work the strike zone than it would for the a batsman to get comfortable in the batter's box. Let us no for get that the Batsman is accustom to protecting the wicket, not fighting off a on the black fastball or a Gaylord Perry hook, (I know it's late that was the only reference my mind could mustard from Gaylord's jar of foreign substance.), being pitched to abnormally close, and not to mention protecting their body.

What I am getting at is it will be easier for the hurlers to adjust to the two sports. I don't know if anyone notice that I wrote that I have tried batting with with one of those flat bats (reminds me of a paddle) and I was pitiful. I never got a flush hit. Must of the time a graze or what we would call a foul tip, but I didn't know it was a live ball no matter where it went. I sent roughly 10 to 15 minutes and decided to stick with baseball, softball, and most important of all waffle ball.

I give any props to any athlete that could play in a Match for 5 days plus. That is devotion right there.


I plan on participating and contributing on the boards here at the Cafe, RotoWorld Forums, and a new site I came across called
http://www.faniq.com
: The site is a hybrid site. It has all your sports, forums, killer trivia, and articles. It also service as a Social Networking site such Face book and My space, but it is center around sports.

Be safe y'all, Have a Merry Christmas, a careful New Year.


I be on and off here looking for good conversation and doing a little research on the 2 DOWN SP ,2 UP SP, a one pitcher to watch out for late June or early June, if not sooner. Please feel free to add input. Knowledge is power and I try to get knowledge from multiple sources. So, in between Turkey, Pecan Pie, and a deviled egg or two check out one of the site.

Little more than 2 months, February 14th (pitchers and Catchers report), February 17th (1st day all players may report to Spring Training) and February 22nd (Mandatory Spring Training reporting date for all players.) .... the itch has started.

Absolutely agree!

Richard Hadlee going head to head with Geoffrey Boycott, or Ian Botham vesus Martin Crowe were superb battles!

I'll always be a Test match fan over the McDonalds style versions.

Nice that these two were finally able to land a contract somewhere. It may be with the Pirates, but that doesn't matter. Regardless of what they turn out to be, this is groundbreaking stuff. The game of baseball has just begun its introduction into the Indian culture, and it could end up being a hot bed for talent, especially considering it is a country where the game can be played year-round. I made a post about the potential impact that this could have for India and for the game of baseball over at my blog. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Won't it take longer if they have to recover from TJ surgery?
