It's July 2008. The New York Yankees are facing the Boston Red Sox at the London Oval.

Alex Rodriguez steps up to the plate to face Josh Beckett. Beckett has baffled A-Rod before with a series of off-spins, but now in the seventh, Beckett needs to find a new pitch so he switches to the top-spinner. Rodriguez fouls off a few. Then Beckett tries a googly. But Rodriguez is waiting for it.

"It is high. It is deep. It is SIX!!!!!!!!!!!" John Sterling screams in to the microphone. Final score: Yankees 256-5, Red Sox 255-7.

By 2008 who will be the wicket-keepers for each side?

I'm all for exhibition games in foreign countries, but I really wish MLB would stop making teams play regular season games on different continents.

That said, a few years ago I spent a few months in London and it was weird watching baseball games on tv there. They don't have as many commercial breaks in Britain, so during each half inning/pitching change break, they would have a Canadian guy explain what just happened and an English guy try to translate what the Canadian guy said into something that Brits could understand. The most bizarre was using a soccer analogy in reference to a shadow tag.
