Apparently the cost of duct tape and plastic in Japan is prohibitive.

Probably for the best. I never liked the idea of playing these neutral site games anyway. Whatt's the advantage for the two teams to lose the coin from home games. At least San Diego was being self interested when they moved those games to Mexico and Honolulu.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism.

I'm glad obviously for their safety, but also for another reason. Both teams had a pair of ST games AFTER they got back from Japan. So they fly to Japan, play 2 regular season games, then fly back to the states to play 2 more meaningless exhibition games after the regular season starts? Total bullshit.

I'll give MLB credit for making the decision, though. No reason to make the trip this week. I'll be curious to see what happens with the Yankees going there next year.

I wish they made chocolate Advent calendars for WrestleMania, although I'd skip the Mark Henry day.

That's Society for American Baseball Research, and it's in Toronto from Thursday-Sunday, including a Yankees-Blue Jays game on Friday. Anyone else going? I'll be set up in the vendors area.
