Play Ball! - Opening Series In Japan

mariners, athletics, opening week and 6 more...

Major League Baseball opened this year by taking a page from the book of the National Hockey League. The NHL always opens overseas, usually in three different countries in Europe, in what they refer to as the "Compuware NHL Premiere" games. This year, the boys of summer start their year over at the Tokyo Dome, home of the Yomiuri Giants of Nippon Professional Baseball, in the two game Opening Series between the Seattle Mariners and the Oakland (perhaps soon to be San Jose in the coming years) Athletics.


Seattle Mariners @ Oakland Athletics, at the Yomiuri Giants' Tokyo Dome, Tokyo, Japan.

King Felix took the mound for the Mariners while the Oakland A's put their hopes for a good start to the season in the hands of Brandon McCarthy, before a sold-out crowd in the largest city in the world. McCarthy, a relative no-name next to Seattle's 2010 Cy Young winner, matched Hernandez for seven innings in the Land of the Rising Sun, in a pitching duel that limited both teams to a lone run each. The lone run for the Mariners came by way of a home run hit by Dustin Ackley. The one run tie lasted for ten innings until Japanese star, Ichiro tied the Seattle franchise record of four Opening Day hits while also driving in the run that would eventually win the game, though one run worth of padding was added by Ackley before the M's finished off the A's in the bottom of the eleventh. Wilhelmsen, a reliever, was credited with the win, while League got the save, and the A's Carignan was tacked with the loss for Oakland.


Tomorrow: Seattle Mariners @ Oakland Athletics, at the Yomiuri Giants' Tokyo Dome, Tokyo, Japan.
Broadcast on ROOT Sports Northwest, 5:10 AM EST, 2:10 PST. Rebroadcast (for those of you that actually sleep) on MLB Network later on.


Oh, and don't miss the Serpentine once more claim dominion over Ninjago tonight as we claim the last of the FOUR SILVER FANG BLADES and awaken THE GREAT DEVOURER! But the baseball thing is more important of course.

Come, come, as long as we're busy conquering Ninjago, we might as well do the same with Major League Baseball. We already have the Diamondbacks.

As for baseball, Spring Training so far has commenced swimmingly. It's very difficult to make any predictions based from Spring Training, as very few teams give a team effort at this point. However, we can now expect pitchers and teams to get into it, as the regular season returns in less that two weeks.

Status Update On Yours Truly, Lewey, And Beisbol

Posted by LewaLew , in Work/School, Baseball, BZPower Feb 24 2012 · 23 views

I signed up for about 30 hours a week on my application, but I tend to have 35-38.5. This week is one of those 38.5 weeks. Between school and work, RKing is one of the last things I have to think about. Hopefully, I'll be able to help in the summer, but now, I'm bogged down more than a nub-legged McToran in a Le-Wahi swamp.

However, good to hear that Ryan Braun will play. Hopefully due to being cleared. He'd be a disgrace to the sport if he did cheat. As suspected, Pujols and Fielder both went to AL contenders, and I suspect the major pitching FA, Roy Oswalt, will stick to the NL. It's unfortunate he won't stay with Philadelphia. That pitching staff is still stacked without him.

Less Time Available

Posted by LewaLew , in BZPower, Baseball Dec 14 2011 · 32 views

Sorry about not being on BZPower quite as much as usual. Since I got my job I have almost zero time to use the computer. So little that I wasn't even able to write anything about the Pujols signing. And so little that this is all I have the time to say right now.

Just thought it would be a good idea to explain my absence.


Maybe this is how all the other RKs disappeared. :P

Play Ball!

For those of you who don't know (which would mean everyone but Aho-Chan and Sumiki) the BaseBlog is beyond a blog, this is beyond baseball it's a blog that focuses on the great American sport of baseball. The idea of a baseball themed blog has actually been in the works by me ever since Super Bowl XLIV, when Aho-Chan posted a blog entry asking if anyone besides himself didn't care for the Super Bowl, to which I suddenly got the idea of a baseball-themed blog so I could talk about my favorite sport without waiting for someone else to post in the Official Baseball Topic in the Completely Off Topic forum.

Play Ball, folks.
