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.

      Anyone know where to catch pout.   We have been staying nights and keep lines down 24-7 on the lake while we are there, caught several on LOW but cant seem to find them here.   Maybes its to early yet.    Any location to anyone suggest searching for burbs.

      Yep, think it was his 2nd biggest, he was pumped.  With COVID shutdowns we have been LOW twice and vermillion 3 times, headed back on weekend.      He's diehard, wants to camp in a portable out there this weekend.

      Have been fishing LOTW for many years now, but often wonder about fishing rainy lake. But there never seems to be any info on winter fishing. Is it because no one does it? Would be interested in knowing if there are plow roads out onto the lake, places to stay or any often info. Thanks.

      The problem with FaceBook is that you have to post your name and show pictures of yourself for all to see.  That's why some folks like it on these forums because the shady and criminals can stay incognito. 😆 🤣

      Hoodoo Lake- My dad said "it has big Northerns in it" This may not be very current as he said that like 40 years ago.    Hopefully I will make it back up for a few weekends. We need snow and lots of it.   Good Luck
