    There is no skill difference between baseball and cricket, its the player that has the skill not the sport.

    Baseballers may play 160 odd games a year but how many last for five days.

    Highly skilled players would fine changing sport easier than lesser skilled players.
    Fast moving players like Ponting would probably adapt to the running around the bases whereas Inzi may be more inclined to try and hit homers.
    Stamina probably matters more in cricket and making quick decisions probably count more in baseball.

    I agree. Baseball sucks. Baseball is cricket without the nuances.

    lol...Read what Swervy said... I am not sure how objective we can be, given that we all are cricket fans.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    There isn't anything wrong with baseball.

    I mean unless you have sat down and watched it or played it, you can't really bitch or moan.

    Exactly, you'll never see a baseball batter making an innings for 9 hours, or fielders and pitchers going for 10 hours.
    Or something.

    Things I'd like to see No 1.....

    A baseball player coming out to bat at cricket, hitting the ball into the covers and then charging off in the direction of square leg before diving past the umpire.

    You've got that right - same with American Football.

    I watched a game of that last year and this guy was sitting on the bench with an oxygen mask on. The commentator was almost blowing chunks with enthusiasm, saying something like "... what a great run - he made four yards. That takes him up to 800 this season."

    Sheesh - I did twelve miles on Thursday - and I only needed five pints of Guinness to recover. Oxygen? Pah!
