The Phillies are gonna be decent and in the dog days of summer everybody is going to forget they were expected to lose a hundred
Craig Edwards
4:17
Okay. Well I am now watching baseball. And everyone can blame (credit?) me for Carson's exit as he had to edit a piece of mine.
Wynn Curve

Is Aoki going to be playing everyday vs LHP or do they have a platoon for him, JS?
Jeff Sullivan
4:17
Aoki actually has a reverse career platoon split
Sean Dolinar
4:18
The Brewers started to lose...I think that's why he split.
Jeff Sullivan
4:18
First pitch from Felix: ...89 miles per hour
LudeBurger
4:18
I can actually feel the optimism running through my veins!!!
Jeff Sullivan
4:18
Another 89 and a HBP. Hot start!
Craig Edwards
4:18
Raisel Iglesias v Maikel Franko and interesting matchup right now.
Franco couldn't quite get all of it.
RedRifle
4:19
Whys is Cruz playing the field? I thought he'd be a DH only this year
Jeff Sullivan
4:19
Gutierrez is playing both days and they want to make sure to keep him rested
and Seth Smith is presently hurt
4:20
...89...
and a 90
Adam
4:20
Does Felix have the worst facial hair in the game?
Jeff Sullivan
4:20
Imagine this facial hair and Jaso's other hair
Dustin
4:21
First Joey Votto AB coming up. Can't watch enough of those.
Wily Mo Money Mo Problems
4:21
Anyone know how to get notifications on MLB.TV for when batters are on deck/at-bat? Need to set up Giancarlo watch for this season.
Jammin

Buxton or joc pederson, this year and future
Craig Edwards
4:22
Buxton for both probably, although I don't think Pederson is as wrecked as he seems to be.
Jeff Sullivan
4:22
I always love the delay in fan response when an umpire calls batter interference
Jake M
4:22
Harper in a duel first at bat
That Guy
4:22
Harper being Harper
Horn Please ThankYou
4:23
Harper needs to do some sort of silly dance so we can all listen to Goose's head explode
juan pierres mustache
4:23
booing bryce harper only makes him stronger

4:24
tell me there's a reason my Phillies made Hellickson Opening Day starter
Craig Edwards
4:24
no added pressure on a younger player, perhaps, re: Hellickson
Gary Guy Yeti
4:25
What kind of olive oil does Anthony Rendon use in his hair
Jeff Sullivan
4:25
extra virgin
Sam
4:25
Any early opinions on MLB.tv this year? Playback seems smoother so far
Jeff Sullivan
4:25
Hasn't sucked yet! So this is a first for me
mtsw
4:26
To what extent do players on an obviously-rebuilding team like the Reds get demoralized more easily? Deep down do they kinda think they could win or are they mostly going through the motions/trying to protect their individual performance?
Jeff Sullivan
4:27
They all kind of know what's going on, but they also know they need to perform because there are not very many jobs in the major leagues. They end up more often playing for themselves, but that's not exactly a big problem down the stretch in a lost season
Donny B
4:27
Is there an affordable (and maybe sometimes legal) way to watch all these games online?
Jeff Sullivan
4:27
They're playing for jobs or they're playing for trade opportunities
Craig Edwards
4:27
It's all relative, but compared to other packages, MLB.tv is affordable.

Harper career 11-24 with 4HR vs. Teheran.
Erik
4:28
Ryan Howard's 2016 so far: weak grounder with a runner in scoring position and 2 outs, and dropping a throw to let a runner score. Looking forward to 2017 already.

PHI wanted Nola to start the home opener. Thus Hellickson today
