2 days to go folks! I haven't been this excited for a while. Make sure your fantasy teams are updated and you're not playing with any crocks like I am i.e. Lidge lol.

Don't have a clue about baseball apart from the Yankees and Red Sox so looking for a little bit of help please, lads.

I've been offered a job in the US over the summer which I've accepted. I'm looking to take in some baseball games whilst I'm there but not sure what would be the best to attend. I'll be there from the beginning of July until the beginning of September. Likely to be based in New York/New Jersey so would be looking at going to mainly Yankees' games. Out of the two home ties in early September, which would be the best to go to? Also, I'm wondering if it would be worth travelling to Boston for the game against the Yankees? Any suggestions would be spot on.

I'd doubt you'd get tickets for Yanks v Sox. Who we playing in september? You'll find it slow at first but when you start to appreciate the art of pitching then you'll enjoy it. When choosing games, look at the pitching match-up.

You might struggle to get tickets at Boston as they've sold out something like 633 home games in a row and against the Yankees will make it a lot tougher. All that said if you're prepared to pay over the odds you can get tickets there.

As for this year just some interesting stats I've happened across with my reading.

The Giants had four pitchers hit 33+ starts last year which has only happened 17 times since 1990 and has never been done back-to-back.

Bautista was the 25th player to hit 50 homers. The previous 24 averaged 45 homers the following year. He was the fourth hitter to top 50 after having less than 20 the year before. The previous three (Cecil Fielder, Brady Anderson, Greg Vaughn) averaged 36 the season after (they were during the juiced up era although I couldn't be sure as to whether Fielder was, think it was '91 or something for him).

Expecting R2C2 to all win at least 15 games and top 200 innings? Only one rotation has managed this during the wild card years and that's the 2003 Yankees which had Clemens, Mussina, Pettite and David Wells and was probably juiced up too.

The Yankees play 25 of their first 41 games against their top five opponents from last year ranked by OPS vs right-handed starters. The Yankees currently have one left-handed starter, Sabathia.

Last year Car-Go, at age 24, had 197h, 34hr, 117rbi, 143OPS+ which is similar to when 24 year old Jim Rice's 1978 AL MVP year of 206h, 39hr, 114rbi, 147OPS+. The following year, at age 25, Rice hit 213h, 46hr, 139rbi, 157OPS+.

This year Jay Bruce is entering his fourth season at age 24 and has hit .257, .474SLG, 110OPS+. During the same period Barry Bonds hit .258, .471SLG, 123OPS+. In his fourth year Bonds took a step back but then won an MVP award in his fifth year on the way to a four year run in which he averaged .310, .595SLG, 185OPS+. Unknown if it was the juice years or not.
