Did you know baseball starts Tuesday… in a foreign country… played in the wee hours of the morning EST? Well, if think it is out of the realm of normal… You have no idea what is taking place. You might as well get used to the idea of the MLB season staring in March… in a country that has $$$.. Moreover, INTEREST! That is right other countries have interest in the game of baseball. Baltimore fans seem to be as interested in this season as if this was a wedding for a couple you knew had no chance… because you are the reason they have no chance.
