    Would you like to see the ML World Series winner play the Japanese World Series winner in a best of 7 "World Series"? Why or why not?

      Ever since Bad News Bears in Japan (watching this movie made me realize just how good of an actor Walter Matthau was. He was soooooo much better than Tony Curtis or William Devane, his replacements) this has always been in the back of my mind as to being a good thing. I'd love to see it.

          You know the more I think about it, the more interesting it sounds. This will really be a true battle instead of the exhibition crap that we are used to when the MLers go overseas.

            I'd like to see the MLB champ play the Rest of World Champ so other countries have a chance, too.
            Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
            I hope that's all.

                I guess I'm the lone dissenter so far. I agree that a game between the WS Champ and the Japanese Champ would be great (maybe for charity) or even a short 3-game series. However, the logistical nightmare of arranging for a 7 game series to be held in 2 separate hemispheres would hardly be worth following. Besides, I think the player's union (not to mention the owners) would grumble about the strain of an even longer post-season.

                  How is this different then when teams had to take trains? How far is St. Louis from New York or Boston by train? A flight from Chicago to Tokyo would be about 13-14 hours. From NY to St. Louis it would be over 14 hours by car. If you through enough money around the players will come. But MLB would be hesitant because they have much to lose if the ML champ lost, which could happen.

                    Since Japan has the strongest professional baseball league after the majors they should get first crack at it.

                      Great idea. In this way we can see how strong both leagues are.

                        i would love to see it. the exibition sucks big time. i think it would be interesting, i dont know alot about japanese baseball though. i doubt it will ever happen though, the mlb players have too much to lose and the japanese have nothing. even if japan gets spanked they can say 'oh well, at least we tried, these guys are the best' but if the majors lose, questions will be coming out from everywhere.

                        i'd love to see it but it aint going to happen

                          Ask the Players Union how they feel about that... NO.

                            An the Japanese players would certainly approach the series with the upmost intensity.

                              True, the travel time wouldn't necessarily be the killer, though. The jet-lag in the middle of a 7-game series, however...h
