Cubs - Cardinals in London 2020
Far Cough - meet you there? You'll get to cheer on the greatest side in baseball, nay, any club of all sports!

NEW YORK -- The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals are set to play at London next season in a two-game series at West Ham's Olympic Stadium on June 13-14.

St. Louis will be the home team for both games, according to a draft of the 2020 preliminary schedule obtained by The Associated Press.

Chicago will be at Philadelphia on June 8-10, then has a pair of off days. The Cubs will be off June 15 and then start a homestand at Wrigley Field against the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox.

"I've had experience traveling over there, and the time difference is pretty dramatic, especially when you go that way," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Wednesday. "When you come back, you're always able to catch up, when you're going back in time as opposed to forward in time. I don't even know what to expect in something like that. You know your head's going to be swimming a little bit -- you've got that brain fog, you just do."

Players are used to traveling coast to coast in the U.S., but that is a three-hour time difference. Cubs right fielder Jason Heyward said he has never crossed the Atlantic.

"It's going to be like nothing we've ever experienced, so I won't know until we get to it," he said.

The New York Yankees and the Red Sox are scheduled this season to meet in Major League Baseball's first games in Europe on June 29-30 at London's Olympic Stadium. Having converted the venue to baseball for that series, MLB expects to get the field prepared more quickly the second time around.

"Once you get there, you're going to have a lot of adrenaline, you're going to probably be well enough to play those games and be excited and charged up," Maddon said. "When you come back, adrenaline's gone, and then you get back into this regular schedule -- that would be the larger concern.

"But having said all that, I think it's great. I'm a big fan of Europe. If jets could even become more efficient, I think it would be a great situation to have a team or teams over there. That would be really the kind of expansion you're looking for. But it would have to be a scheduling thing. It would have to be all kinds of considerations just based on jet lag because the brain fog will beat you up. "

If you want tickets, do not pay premium prices on re-selling sites. There is an MLB London facebook group where loads of people are advertising tickets at face.

It seems that many bought tickets to make a fast back but it's backfired.

It's stupid that they won't let Pete Rose into the Hall of Fame, he should get in on his batting stats alone

Was Jackie Robinson only in the Pete Rose Negro League Pennant Fever expansion pack?

Ha ha knew there was another one. Been racking my brains as to who it was. M. Roger, of course. B. Lou was Lou Brock, who held the record for stolen bases for a while. I actually think him and Ty Cobb were the first 3 batters because they were both fast and could get on base with a bunt every time, then the big boys just hit deep for 3 or 4 runs at the top of the 1st in every game.

Re: Cubs - Cardinals in London 2020
Micky Mantle, Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb? That's some line up but no Roger Maris?

Re: Cubs - Cardinals in London 2020
I did have to look that up Cough.

I'd be happy with the same result to be honest.

Perhaps Ryu is the new Koufax.

I remember playing Pete Rose Pennant Fever on the pc (before all the trouble started obviously) and and I would always end up with K. Sandy as my starting pitcher, and a batting lineup featuring M. Mickey, G. Lou, R. Babe, C. Ty at numbers 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the batting lineup. I think B. Lou lead off because he had the best speed in the game. Would always bunt the first pitch he faced and get on base then generally scored the next 4 batters through doubles and HRs.

What a game.

Lomas, could well be a replay of the 1965 World Series but hopefully with a different outcome?

Re: Cubs - Cardinals in London 2020
Made it to the last 2 World Series, which is alright.

The way they've started this season, would you bet against them getting there again?
