edited November 2019 in Debate and/or Discourse
Yeah its a new year of our national past time and after one day of play the cubs still suck, the yankees are without a captain and the Seattle Mariners have the best record in baseball*

So post your hopes, post your dreams, and post your yankee hate, PLAY BALL!



*technically tied with like half the league but fuck you this is the one day this is true.

I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    So, the Cubs have a solution to their "streaming issues" - portapotties.

    You know I'm shocked the cubs were even allowed to hold the game with the bathroom situation they had, that had to violate some kind of municipal code, though I guess LOL corruption because its chicago?

    And man is the bloom off Samardzija's rose yet? Ever since he got traded to Oakland he hasn't been the dominant pitcher he was seemingly being shopped as, case of the yips?

    Samardzija with Oakland last year: 3.14 ERA, 3.00 FIP, 2.96 xFIP

    Despite the bad opening Day start, I think he'll be fine.

    Yeah, the Wrigley situation is a horrifying disaster. There are some incredibly disturbing pictures up on Deadspin and... jeez.

    Hmm which game do I watch tonight?

    Only one I can see is the mariners outside of having like mlb network.

    The cub game got postponed? Is that weather or the bathroom situation?

    They say weather. Sub zero wind chills and rain.

    I'm sure the bathroom situation made it easier (though apparently they've been trucking in portapotties... why they didn't do that, y'know, before OPENING DAY, is a mystery)

  • PreacherPreacher Registered User regular
    I'm constantly happy the mariners have a roof that closes. Which did lead to a fun moment at yesterdays game. When we got there the roof was closed because the weather was gray and there was a light sprinkle, but about an hour before game time they must have gotten a positive forecast so they said something about its opening day and they opened the roof while the 2001 theme played. Its something you miss out when you watch it on tv. Like when the mariners went ahead in third inning the stadium flashed "The M pire strikes back." Mariners know their fans.

    Also in case you're wondering in the battle between dancing or karaoke the mariners choose dancing.

    The hardest thing about MLB.tv is choosing what game to watch. I'm currently watching Marlins/Braves because I'm not ready to deal with the Trop.

    Though with the Os slapping the Rays around it IS tempting.

    You can get gameday audio for $20/year. I think it lets you use the at bat app also. There's generally 1 free game of mlb.tv per day. I assume you can just listen instead of watching. Today's is Giants at D-backs

    I split mlb.tv premium with my dad.

    All the baseball is mine.

    So basically I will be watching the Rocks and Cards non-stop.

  • APODionysusAPODionysus Registered User regular
    MLB.tv gives you video as well (and premium includes video on your phone for when your out and about)

    I can NOT recommend it enough. It's absolutely worth the money every year - especially if your out of market of your team (like I am). I also don't have cable and there are even... ways... around blackouts if you are local.

  • MazzyxMazzyx Comedy Gold Registered User regular
    Okay Rocks are looking good.

    DON'T GIVE ME FALSE HOPE!

  • APODionysusAPODionysus Registered User regular
    Don't give the FO hope either. This is a prime year for the Rockies to sell on Tulowitzski and still reap excellent return.

  • AmphetamineAmphetamine Registered User regular
    I can't tell if the Brewers suck that bad or if the Rockies are that good.

    I won't lie I will be sad if they sell Tulo.

    Only Rockies jersey I own.

    Also because I know the FO are raging idiots and would probably sell him for some guys a day off from retirement.

    This is what pisses me off about CJ Wilson. He showed tonight what he is capable of, what he lacks is consistency. Great game for him but it remains to be seen if he can keep up even close to that over the course of the season. Last season the only thing he did consistently was throw a ton of pitches and leave by the fifth inning and it certainly was nice to see him go 8 innings of shutout ball tonight, and Huston Street closing it out without issue.

    He has two seasons as a Rangers starter that prove he can be pretty good over the course of the year. Shame he's cocky enough to think he's a #1 (HAHAHAHAHA) and his playoff record is awful outside of one start.

    Those two seasons with Texas were similar numbers to what Wilson did in 2013 with the Angels, which would be great to get out of him this year, but 2012 was mediocre and 2014 was even worse with his highest ERA, WHIP, and lowest innings pitched as a starter despite starting 30+ games every year.

    When his most recent season was his worst my expectations tend toward him sliding further rather than rebounding. I hope to be proven wrong.

    By the way, joining Red Sox Nation (for $15) includes "2015 MLB.com Gameday Audio for your computer". I don't know if the subscription is usable in mobile browsers/streaming applications or if any other teams offer a similar deal, but it might be worth investigating.

    Anyway, go Red Sox, Cubs, and Mets! *Runs away*

    I am listening to the Cubs Cards game right now.

    The cards announcers have said that this is the emptiest they have seen Wrigley at a cubs cards game since the 60's.

    Cubs, cancel the season do to non-existent fans.

  • PreacherPreacher Registered User regular
    I can't exactly blame cubs fans for not wanting to be there. The stadium fuckery has been some of the most blatant "fuck you" I've seen from a MLB owner since Marge Schott.

    Hahahahaha. Yep.

    The Tigers are still pretty stacked though.

    For the Twins though, an improved team is still last place in the division. Maybe by the next decade they can eek out a wild card spot. After another playoff expansion.

    That would only punish themselves, by being season ticket holders they've already bought the dumb things, and they are cubs fans not exactly the brightest bulbs to begin with.

    Official attendance at the Cubs game is announced as 26,814.

    26,814 what? Beer cups full of pee? Because it sure isn't people.

    It's if there's a rainout on opening day they have a day open to have another opening day and not lose out on any of the revenue of having an opening day.

  • eelektrikeelektrik Registered User regular
    I wish I was actually able to watch the game, because reading the play by play on the Angels/Mariners game makes me go wuh? I have to see the video on this later...
    Erick Aybar reaches on a fielding error by second baseman Robinson Cano. Matt Joyce scores. David Freese scores. Erick Aybar out at 1st on the throw, right fielder Nelson Cruz to first baseman Logan Morrison.

    That sounds like quite the pickle.
