Teams usually have their 5 starters then about 5 relief men and a set up man and closer

Why is everyone so mad it's in Aus?

We didn't force it to come here bros, that was MLBs decision. We're just here for the ride too.

First time I've ever watched it. I want to get up and do other things but I have to keep watching for some reason. Similar pace to cricket. Blew my mind how much they get paid. Our pro AFL players are on like 1m a year.

Not blaming Australia at all. Disappointed in the MLB

Its physically impossible to throw 5 games/week that the baseball demands. Your arm will literally break itself after a week or two. Arms arent made to make the throwing motion, so pitching just 7 innings/week is dangerous enough as that roughly 100 pitches thrown at 90+ MPH. If a starter threw 2 games in a row, his speed/accuracy would slow down drastically, and chance of injury increased by like 1000%

Most sports have breaks between games, but baseball plays non-stop, usually like 6 games a week average. So 5 "starters" rotate a 5 game cycle. You also have closers and middle relievers and set-up men to keep the other team guessing. A lot of it is a chess game. In an ideal game, starter throws 7 innings, then another throws 1, then closer throws 1.

Went out two stepping and can come home to live baseball. Successful night. Who gives a fukk if it's in Australia? NFL does their London games every year, it's a sellout and the crowd is awesome. Brb everyone's pumped the fukk up over foul balls in the stands.

Need to get Clayton out of the game do the dbags offense can score some runs.

Wish they played an NBA game here.

Just fly over clippers vs warriors. 1 flight away and the hype would be insane.

You guys are dumb as ****. Who CARES if they play ONE series in Australia. I think it's a good idea... the crowd is so into it (currently watching the rebroadcast on MLB network). I lol'd though when a nubber was hit and the crowd got excited lmao. I could only imagine a deep fly ball.

The players for one absolutly hate it.

Brb giving up 2 weeks of training camp/spring training so they can fly across the world and play in some publicity stunt games

A few games out of 162 and it's not like the same teams are going over there every year.
