Japan vs. MLB all stars

Anyone pay attention to this? I caught a bit of it on MLB network. Apparently it's a 5 game series, and the Japanese all stars have owned the major leaguers so far. And to add insult to injury (literally), Robinson Cano broke his toe. Anyone know how the final 2 games played out?

Never heard anything about it. Would have loved to see some live baseball. The local football teams sure weren't worth wasting time with over the weekend.

Are you sure it isn't 7 games they play? The first 3 games MLB All-stars lost including game 3 where they were no-hit!!! that is the game Cano broke his toe. We won the forth game thanks to a Justin Morneau 3 run home run.

It's a 5 game series, not best of 5. So they play all 5 no matter who won how many. It's now 3-1 Japan.

Game 5 is tomorrow morning 4am local time. Not sure if it's televised here or not, but probably won't get up that early to see. grin

ahh I knew it wasn't a best of series but I thought I read 7 games and thought that was odd without it being a best of series...5 sounds more appropriate for exhibition games.

It was on the MLB network, so I would guess they would replay it at least once. I'm a casual fan of the baseball world cup (or whatever it's called), but the last time I watched the japanese and MLB all stars play each other, Kirby Puckett was in the line up! crazy

so I guess they did play 7 games total and only 5 counted towards the series is what I was reading this morning. What the difference was between the exhibition games and the series is beyond me but the All-star lost the series 3-2.

I would imagine the players got some sort of compensation, despite this being an exhibition. Maybe they played the 2 extra games because it was financially worthwhile.

      Just as a note, I got on the chain Saturday around noon.  Main lakes had a skim of ice, 1/2", shallow bodies(East lake) look like the ice was actually walkable, please don't take my word for that though.     Anyways, water temps were 34*.  I didn't fish much at all, just broke up enough ice to get some new data for mapping.  I did mark quiet a few fish, which is a plus.     On another note, has anyone else noticed the large group(15-20) of beds on Horseshoe just north of the meth hole, about 8-9FOW?  I noticed these this spring, and they're still there.  Thought it was kind of interesting they'd still be there even after all the boat traffic this year.

      Smith Farms Labradors?  My 8 year old British yellow lab is from that breeder in Grove City.

      In New Mexico? Not much. In Minnesota? A little more. Wheel boat, I assume for a 50 HP on a 15' boat. Bench seats? Does the outboard run? What's wrong with the lower unit? Does the steering work? Does the throttle work? Is there a trailer?

      Went out to check some ice on one of my lakes that seems to freeze over before most. 2-3". Still early but maybe another week and ice fishing has begun for me. We'll see. Anyone else getting excited. Now only if cold weather would hurry up and come!

      My older yellow Zoe came out of Pete Fischers Rex former owner of Fischer Kennels now with Dogtra and my newest black one Otter is from Mike Feldhege of Richmond AKA (Fishing) his male Drake and a cousins female Avery from a Grove city kennel. Both excellent dogs! both were fairly reasonable I train all my dogs myself done a few already takes a ton of time and paitence  but the rewards are worth it! My dogs are in the house with me and spend time with me in the boat and pretty much are with me all the time they are my second kids 😀  I feel this connection is what truely makes a good dog.

      Been good so far 👍 I will take you up on your offer some time.   Where did you get your young lab?? I may be in the market for one this spring as long as I don't need to take a second mortgage on the house.🥴

      Thanks Glen been busy fishing and hunting been a banner year for me in the outdoors for sure !!!  Had a phenomenal summer, fall walleye fishing, got a Buck and Doe gun season now my focus is chasing roosters as much as possible until good ice! Might be my last year in the field for my old lab as she is 13 still hunting hard but the joints arthritis are catching up to her. Plus side is my new pup 1 1/2 is really coming along great she's going to b a good one! Your more than welcome to follow me but I will warn you first you have to figure out what I'm driving. Bought a new 2020 pickup this spring with a off road  package now  you have to figure out the color and brand 😀🤣 Seriously anytime your more than welcome to join me just holler Hope retirement is treating you right.
