Is my assessment somewhere near the point of cricket?
Pretty much. You largely nailed the batting part. You omitted the part about the bowler trying to bowl the batsman, e.g. by hitting the wickets.

Well, only so much one can learn watching 10 minutes on YouTube.

I won't try to get you to work out the way American sports are played.

Ah, but I know how American sports are played. It's part of why I don't like them. I'd probably have less animosity if I hadn't figured them out!

Incidentally, trying to work out how a batsman gets dismissed LBW (that's leg before wicket) is not something you just learn in a day. I didn't get it until I was about ten!

All this sexual frustration is bringing down this thread. You guys should use this, its a magnet.

So, if I were to bitch about Charlie Manuel's ineptitude when it comes to the double switch substitution in baseball, you would follow along, right?

Alright, probably not.

This post exists in place of a much longer, rambling, tangental one that I deleted because I don't feel like sparking another sports argument.

I'm kidding, of course. I'd bet 50% of baseball fans don't understand the fine details of baseball strategy as well as I do. Half of Major League Baseball doesn't use the double switch because their pitchers don't bat!

Ax, why is it called the suicide squeeze?

(my favorite play in its sport)

In fact, just tell me, for which sport do you employ the suicide squeeze?
