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.

      Got up today. You're correct skunked. It frozen solid as far as I can see in front of me. Snowmobile tracks are running along our shoreline 🤔

      Thanks for the input. I wish that were closer to the west end, as that's a bit of a hike for me but will always be an option.

      From the White Eagle webcam, it looks like only the wings are iced up but the majority of Head O Lakes is open water still.   Therefore I likely won't be heading up there until the holidays.

      Darrell - thanks for the information.  I also heard some scary news about premature ice fishing on Vermilion.  A couple of guys fishing in Stuntz Bay on 2.5" of ice.  Another couple fishing in narrows close to open water.   Weather doesn't look great for making ice, and the snow cover will slow it down.  Will consider all information and use maximum safety IF I decide to try going out Wednesday.  It is a long winter so there is no rush to get out.

      JerkinLips, I normally don't post about hear say!! but I did hear from a reliable source that a couple of fishing people went through walking out from McKinley. For what that's worth, this was earlier this week.

      anybody???? anything??????????
    • JerkinLips
      Heard some people were out fishing at McKinley Park today.  HotL Bay is still open, so now I think it will be about November 29 before Vermilion ices-over.  I am hoping to make it out December 2.  Looked back at previous forum reports and came up with the ice-over dates below:

      If you think about it. With all the hunters, trappers, guides and people just living off the land up in Canada and Alaska. You have to wonder how many Ski-Doo Skandic's even make it down to the lower 48? I would even bet being so close to the boarder a lot more Arctic cat Bearcat's and Polaris Wide tracks head that way north then down here. Not trying to discourage you but it's kind of the hot time of year for sleds. You may do better picking up a used one at the end of the season this spring or very early next fall.  Good Luck. 😉

      Happy Thanksgiving FM friends! Just remember the 10 person maximum get together. That is unless you are having a funeral for the turkey, then it's 25 people maximum 🤣
