Just thought I'd put a thread up in case anyone's watching Yankees- Phillies

I would if I could but MLB.tv is unwatchable for me at the moment. I'm off out anyway so not a big deal but gonna have to look into what's going on tomorrow.

No worries - Early days yet anyway

Turned on in time to see Hunter Pence home run. Spring training whets the baseball appetite, but it's more a light starter than a full main course.

Good to get a look at some of the new pitchers. I wouldn't mind being there :D though

Especially with the new stadium. It's a cracking looking stadium.

Nothing exciting to report from this game - early stretch out for both teams, but Yankees cruising to a win at the moment.

7-1 Blue Jays WIN!
Great showing from Brett Lawrie today with 2 doubles, 4 RBI!
We started with pretty much the team that will line up on opening day, so I'm pleased with the showing today!
Tell you what though, it was weird listening to the game with so little people there and being able to hear the beer guy selling his product over the commentary! Very old skool! :D

It's pretty good listening to the radio.
I love the adverts, things like - "hey reds Fans get on down to honest Pete's"
as you say very old school.
The best is the jiggle "The Reds are on the ray - dee - o" (insert your own tune)

After the annual fight with MLB.tv to renew my subscription (geez their customer service is appalling at best) will get to see my first game of Spring Training.
Gonna take in the Red Sox/Twins game.
Once again my Sporting Life is complete, Rugby League & Baseball :)

The new Stadium is fantastic - Green monster s ace 40 feet high apparently.

Yes a little higher than the one at Fenway
