As the cricket season in summer comes to an end and the football season is about to start, the Arizona Diamondbacks v LA Dodgers will play at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Don't know much about baseball. Who should I support? Aren't the Dodgers from Brooklyn? I heard about that in a movie. Lol What's a diamondback? Is that like the Australian redback spider?

Lol. You are a little outdated on your baseball knowledge. If you're serious you're better off just googling this. The dodgers play in Los Angeles and a diamondback is a snake
Also the cardinals are the worst team in baseball history and Mike trout is the best player of all time.

Just googled Cardinals. St Louis! I was thinking Arizona Cardinals, but they play football. Lucky I didn't try to correct you. Lol Let me think about the SF Giants without googling. 2 titles?

Well look at Molina he is crying because they suck so bad and the rest of the team is rushing the field because they saw a puppy run onto the field and want to pet it.

Also yes slip the Giants have won twice in San Francisco.

And everyone chews tobacco. Lol Tonight has been educational. I must say, hitting a ball at a 100 miles an hour with a bat thinner than a cricket bat must take quite some skill. I do know hitting the ball not in the field is a foul.

Just dont become a Dodger fan. Terrible choice.
Join a fantasy baseball league to learn more.
Isn't it insanely hot and humid there right now? Would suck to play ball outdoors... my co-worker from Australia said that everyone tries to leave during the summer because its that nasty
This thread made me chuckle. Joe Dimaggio in LA.
