Baseball to open 2014 Season in Australia?

6

Or so says the Sydney Morning Herald. That report may have jumped the gun a little, because while MLB acknowledges there have been talks, nothing has been decided. The promoters in Aus seem to be very enthusiastic to get the Dodgers, with the Diamondbacks as a possible opponent. And they're suggesting one of the games would be played during the day on a Sunday in Australia, making it available in primetime Saturday night in the US. Because, you know, MLB can't expect fans of teams that matter to get up in the early morning hours. But you know, I'm not sure the Dodgers are the right choice, or that the Diamondbacks should be the competition. After all, the Oakland A's already wear the Australian National Team colors (plus, it gives them another wacky start to the season, and look how that worked out for them this year.). Or how about the White Sox, who played an exhibition game in Australia in 1914, making this the centenary? And either one of those teams could still play the Dodgers, since we're going to have an interleague game every day of the schedule now.
