At the end of him warming up, he turns and just LASERS the ball into the stands. Threw it as hard as he could.

also Giancarlo is still Mike. I learn your name once.
Owen Watson
8:06
I respect Giancarlo a lot, but I too have a hard time not calling him Mikey.

All things equal you like the Giants or dodgers batting lineup top to bottom better?
Owen Watson
8:08
I think I have to go Giants, but it's close. Both have their really strong/weak spots, but I think the weak spots are a little less weak for SF.
If Duffy/Panik hit for any power again this year, they'll be really, really good.

Utley with another dirty slde - clear lane to homeplate, yet moved from foul territory to fair territory at the last minute to slide into the C (wasn't hard, but there was zero need for it)
Owen Watson
8:09
Oh no, Kevin Cash has an opportunity for a challenge
Sam C
8:10
At least Giancarlo has a (semi-)legitimate reason for simpifying his name
Owen Watson
8:11
Cash challenged more than any other manager last year. Just blazes with the challenges

Man that Upton story is AWESOME
Owen Watson
8:12
I remember it so vividly because the ball landed like two rows behind me. Just sizzled over my head

The thing that makes Utley's slides so bad is how late they are. Literally roken legs galore

Jim

Outrage at a literally perfectly legal slide by Utley. Sigh, we've gone too far.
Owen Watson
8:14
Yeah, I don't know. I have a tough time with the *late* + high slides. If you're going to slide into someone, start early, stay low. That's how you don't injure people.
Enlightening Round

Tell Eno, Not Your Fathers Root Beer really sucks
Owen Watson

I agree with this.

Long review in TB. Really, really long.
CJ

The first thought in my head was dirty slide. Was that because of the Tejada play or reality?
Owen Watson
8:15
A little of both, I think! Tejada is pretty fresh still.

The dumbest thing is Utley's only chance was probably to get as far away as possible and reach over the plate
Owen Watson
8:16
Yup!
Jim
8:16
"Galore" i.e. One admittedly dumb terrible slide. What happened to small samples?
Owen Watson
8:17
The galore was referring to how many injuries you're likely to see from slides like that, but ok

Brandon McCarthy calling that slide extremely good. I used to think he was smart. That slide was both ineffective (basically sliding into the glove) and dirty (attempting to take out C). Legal or not, that's a bad slide
Owen Watson
8:18
I normally like his twitter persona a lot, too.
CJ

As a Met fan I have no beef with Chase Utley. That is all.

SO close

kiermaier looks so sad :(

Kiermaier remains good at the center of the field
