Phillies announcers critical of Votto for taking too many walks. Classic
Jeff Sullivan

Kyle Seager dinger, 2-0
Kimball
4:31
If K. Seager were a Ranger, would he be a household name?
Jeff Sullivan
4:31
Nah. Red Sox, yes
Going to be fun to watch the Seager WAR leaderboard this season

mlbtv also does not seem to include any protection against several people sharing an account and logging in from several places at once. i'd never do such a thing, of course, because it's bad and wrong
Jeff Sullivan
4:31
I *believe* it gets mad if you have three people logged in at once. Two seems OK
I tried to run a business this way in college

matt cain has a pretty good shot to end up with a worse contract than ryan howard

Arlington launching pad in mid summer form.
Jeff Sullivan
4:32
Well it is 83 degrees
Craig Edwards
4:33
Reds broadcast just showed Peter Bourjos in both left field and center field which might be ambitious, even for him.
Compton
4:33
That "business" seems rather illegal.
Jeff Sullivan
4:33
And immediately unsuccessful!
Erik

T-Mobile is offering MLB.tv for free
Big hurt
4:36
Seager or Cruz have more bombs this year?
Jeff Sullivan

Cruz

"Illegal and immediately unsuccessful" would make a good subtitle for my memoirs
Jeff Sullivan
4:37
Chris Iannetta now an even 11-for-22 trying to steal in his career
Enlightening Round
4:37
How did Hellickson strike out Votto?
Jeff Sullivan
4:37
Got him thinking high fastball then pulled the string with a high changeup
Compton

Does Fangraphs see a significant uptick in pageviews for these live blogs? If so, you guys should consider hiring a full-time chatter or something. These chats are so much more fun than getting yelled at on the Rotoworld forums.
Jeff Sullivan
4:38
These things are really popular on the occasions that we run them. But, we're also selective with our occasions!
4:39
Because when people are chatting, we aren't writing, and we need to write. But a full-time chatter sounds interesting...if he proved to be good at it and popular.

FREDDIE FREEMAN LOVES WASHINGTON

Orioles/Twins starting shortly

If Ryan Howard meets his 2016 projections, he will have posted -1.9 WAR over the life of his contract. Matt Cain is at 0.9 right now with two years to go. I think Howard ends up winning but only because he was actually able to take the field to provide his negative war. Cain gets paid more though
Craig Edwards
4:40
not sure that is "winning", but it is something. Cain could have a bad 200 inning season and still be worth a win or more.
Horn Please ThankYou

Based upon that image of the Phillies outfield, I'm not sure if you'd have a harder time convincing me Bourgous is actually playing two positions, or that 'C Hunter' is an actual person starting for a baseball team
Jeff Sullivan
4:40
I knew nothing about Hunter before just a few hours ago
Jtt
4:41
I doubt Howard plays all year though, so I doubt he gets the -0.5 he is projected though. This is going to be close!
Poor Man's Rick Reed
4:42
With the rest of the Braves lineup, I don't know that I would throw Freddie Freeman many strikes.
Craig Edwards
4:42
What's the worst that could happen, though? Solo shot? Seems worth the risk
Bad Hermit
4:42
How long does Odor stay batting 7th?
Jeff Sullivan
4:42
Month?
Just gotta prove it wasn't a fluke
