Everyone is really stoked for MLB this season, eh?

I'm back to playing MLB "Beat The Streak", the new iOS app is great and makes pickin' easy.

Jays are  :-o

I have to admit it snuck up on me.

The O's 162-0 season is still intact.

Drew Storen is kind of garbage-like but this slider is bananas

I have a feeling it's going to be a long, hard fought season between the Jays and O's this year. A little surprised there wasn't more scoring in this first series, but I'm sure it's coming.

O's have some big roster decisions this weekend with Gausman and Matusz scheduled to come back

I need to post this.  My team won but it kills me about baseball.
Mets are down 2-1 in the 5th.  1 run is on a syndergaard HR.  Pitcher hits  the 7th batter and walks the 8th place hitter after a lengthy AB.  Syndergaard wants to bunt him over but pitcher is nibbling.  count goes 2-2 (I think) and syndergaard swings and hits a 3 run HR.  Mets end up winning 4-3.  why are teams so reluctant to let a pitcher bunt the runner over in the 5th inning?  I'm a believer that you need to get 27 outs.  take the outs the other team is giving up.

How many outs were there at the time? I'm sure they were considering the much higher likelihood that they'd get a K or harmless fly or even a DP out Syndergaard than that he'd go deep for the second time in the game.

Pitcher should definitely just throw fastballs at the top of the zone, make it tough to bunt... Even the odds of getting a successful sac bunt down aren't great.

If you look at the Win Probability Index Syndergaard's home run was the big swing that game, the odds of any player that far down in the order going deep are so crazy out of whack that you can't even account for it if you're the Dodgers.

on a similar note, went to Fenway yesterday. Great day at the park

Papi put on a show - solo HR in the 4th, game tying triple (yes, triple - the CF lost the ball) with 2 outs in the 9th, and game winning double with 2 outs in the 11th.

When Ortiz got up in the 11th, there was a man on 1st. You don't want to walk him and put a guy in scoring position. During the AB, Houston's P throws a wild pitch. Man on 2nd, 2 outs, Ortiz at the plate. My friend and I looked at each other and said, OK, so now they'll just put Ortiz on. No brainer, we thought. Thankfully for the Sox, they decided to pitch to him. Game over

Too good and entertaining not to share...


I must admit, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Bautista's punk ass get CLOCKED. I feel like hes had that coming for a while.

I don't dislike Texas (or Toronto), but I'm not a huge fan. Growing up an hour and a half from Arlington, it was hard not to root for Texas though. Everyone here is a diehard fan. I use to write to players (Pudge, Juan Gonzalez, Rusty Greer, etc), and they actually wrote me back. No doubt it was from their assistants/publicists/whatever, but it was still cool, especially to a 10 year old kid.

Desmond totally flipped his bat the half-inning before they hit Bautista for flipping his bat... last October.

Rangers are trash, Odor should get 8 games, then lose his job when Profar comes up.
