one pitch into the season and the marlins are losing

lol whoops, I'll have a mod delete mine

we're on a record pace for home runs in a season

damn José Ureña had a bad first inning

Past a stumbling Schwarber.

Opening day (tribe/mariners) game starts at 10pm EST! Madness.

burzum buddies (brownie), Thursday, 29 March 2018 18:10 (one year ago) link

surely staggering times for TV is the reason, as it's ESPN late game following Dodgers-Giants

ice cream social justice (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 29 March 2018 18:16 (one year ago) link

I'd figure a 7pm start time in Seattle is probably not that irregular.

earlnash, Thursday, 29 March 2018 19:11 (one year ago) link

Time was all openers were day games though. *scratches beard*

ice cream social justice (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 29 March 2018 19:16 (one year ago) link

Start the game at 1 or 4 so I can watch it. This is all I ask.

did he manage to injure himself there??

i think his knees took the worst of it

Heard from (the awesome) Jason Benetti on a FG podcast that Tim Anderson season was flunked by the murder of a good friend of his. Heck, my fish die and I can't do anything all day. So to see him compete and getting better is pretty cool, I have high hopes for him.

Looking at that Red Sox box score, I somehow don't figure Joe Kelly would be considered their setup guy.

earlnash, Friday, 30 March 2018 02:32 (one year ago) link

he was really good last year! but yeah

mookieproof, Friday, 30 March 2018 03:02 (one year ago) link

He’s got a riddick fastball, no?

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 30 March 2018 03:47 (one year ago) link

i think he has one of those kyle farnsworth fastballs -- very hard and very straight

mookieproof, Friday, 30 March 2018 03:53 (one year ago) link

goddamn i love having baseball going on in the background while I werk

Mike Everitt (home plate umpire) just took a fastball directly off the top of his mask, taken out of the game. he looked really shaken up.

Karl Malone, Friday, 30 March 2018 20:00 (one year ago) link

i think he has one of those kyle farnsworth fastballs -- very hard and very straight

michael feliz appears to have this issue as well

some very bad baseball in detroit today

mookieproof, Friday, 30 March 2018 20:18 (one year ago) link

yeah, both teams seem to be trying to give it away

Karl Malone, Friday, 30 March 2018 20:21 (one year ago) link

contract both teams imo

mookieproof, Friday, 30 March 2018 20:58 (one year ago) link

Max Scherzer pretty much at top form. Scooter Genette got a double off of him and it must have just ticked Max off as he struck out the next 7 batters.

earlnash, Friday, 30 March 2018 22:46 (one year ago) link

(fwiw: Scooter 4/4 on the day)

A-Rod does not like the launch angle revolution.

he preferred the injections-for-lunch angle

The Yankees haven’t been outside the top two in MLB payroll since 1994, the last time a baseball season ended without a World Series.

trend: it seems like just about every single pitcher talks into their glove when heading toward the dugout after recording the final out of the inning, just before it cuts to commercial.

Karl Malone, Monday, 2 April 2018 18:41 (one year ago) link

oh to be a leather strap on that glove

bartolo : called up by the rangers to pitch tonight

the first pitcher from the 2017 nippon league to hit a home run in 2018 mlb is: miles mikolas.

#Rays Kiermaier will try something new today to combat cold weather vs #Yankees - covering his whole body with Vaseline to serve as an extra layer against the wind.

it's gonna be exciting if he has to slide into a base

na (NA), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 18:51 (one year ago) link

Ryan Braun is actually really nice. I saw him being all friendly and cordial with the security guy, someone who everyone else just walked by without saying a word. He’s cool! Didn’t expect that.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 20:11 (one year ago) link

yeah i know why they're using quintana today, it just makes me nervous.

i think i have more confidence in hendricks than in lester or hamels right now but that might be insane. presumably they'd all be available to pitch parts of a potential wild card game.

na (NA), Monday, 1 October 2018 15:07 (nine months ago) link

Home/Away splits don't favor Quintana.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 15:40 (nine months ago) link

In any case go Bru Cru.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 16:49 (nine months ago) link

i presumed this game was on ESPN Radio, but the NY OUTLET HAS SOME JERK YOWLING ABOUT FOOTBALL

Quintana's been pretty great this year vs. Milwaukee though

frogbs, Monday, 1 October 2018 17:09 (nine months ago) link

been pretty hot over the last month as well, no?

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 1 October 2018 17:43 (nine months ago) link

man Baez is fun

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 17:45 (nine months ago) link

no Cub hits thru 4

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Monday, 1 October 2018 18:11 (nine months ago) link

if he can get through 6 I'll feel a lot better. Hader hasn't pitched in a couple of days, could potentially go 2 here

frogbs, Monday, 1 October 2018 18:19 (nine months ago) link

ESPN’s sound dude has lost control.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 18:20 (nine months ago) link

wow Rizzo murdered that one

Project wolverine going great.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 18:38 (nine months ago) link

can anyone tell me which broadcast team is the least bad here? i'm switching between the two feeds and I'm leaning towards the Brewers guys.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 1 October 2018 18:43 (nine months ago) link

Yelich on deck for a good spot.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:17 (nine months ago) link

Rooting for the beyond epic three run homer from Yelich.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:25 (nine months ago) link

darn.

but then Braun hitting a homer now would be hilarious.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:29 (nine months ago) link

why on earth was braun running there

mookieproof, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:36 (nine months ago) link

It was supposed to be a delayed steal of home?

Why risk running yourself out of a big inning like that? Brutal overmanaging there.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:39 (nine months ago) link

i knew things were going to go bad when brandon kintzler came in to pitch

na (NA), Monday, 1 October 2018 19:40 (nine months ago) link

Aguilar hits into a ton of DPs so the steal makes some sense

frogbs, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:42 (nine months ago) link

anyway if Hader & Jeffress can't get it done then its not meant to be

frogbs, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:43 (nine months ago) link

really can't pull for Milw w/ Hader around

don't really like any NL teams aside from LA (for Kershaw and Puig)

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Monday, 1 October 2018 19:45 (nine months ago) link

ok i'm getting nervous now. 3 more!!!!!!

forgot what this feeling was like

frogbs, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:50 (nine months ago) link

C'mon Morbs, the Pirates are loveable. xpost

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:51 (nine months ago) link

i find milwaukee pretty likeable except for hader and braun

na (NA), Monday, 1 October 2018 19:52 (nine months ago) link

Cain, Granderson, Yelich, Perralta, Chacin, Thames, Davies, Shaw are all very likeable players.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:54 (nine months ago) link

lol had no memory of Granderson ending up there

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Monday, 1 October 2018 19:56 (nine months ago) link

first career four-hit game for arcia

mookieproof, Monday, 1 October 2018 19:58 (nine months ago) link

i do wonder what percentage of this brewers team was there a year ago

na (NA), Monday, 1 October 2018 20:01 (nine months ago) link

was really expecting baez to swing at that 3-0 pitch

mookieproof, Monday, 1 October 2018 20:06 (nine months ago) link

great at-bat tho

mookieproof, Monday, 1 October 2018 20:09 (nine months ago) link

Congrats frogbs, hoping the Brewers make the World Series.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 1 October 2018 20:13 (nine months ago) link

Collective heart attack when the camera zoomed way out on that Bryant fly ball

I wonder where Jeffress was? Wasn’t even warming up

Cubs deserved to lose after that god awful rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” by Mike Ditka. That was one of the worst things I’ve ever heard

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 00:00 (nine months ago) link

Ditka was the worst thing to happen to Chicago sports let alone the Bears.

omar little, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 00:22 (nine months ago) link

Dodger stadium is empty

Reported attendance was about 37 K (> 80 percent full) but maybe that was in the middle innings? Seeing the stadium so empty at the start of the game was ... weird.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 09:23 (nine months ago) link

NARRATOR'S VOICE: It's always empty for the first few innings (and often the last few).
