ya'll are STILL HERE?? going through the west coast games?
Owen Watson
8:22
We barely sleep, my friend. Also I am on the west coast, so it's not even 5:30 yet

TB twitter says fan who didn't interfere wasn't kicked out, just fyi
Owen Watson
8:22
Taken into protective custody?
Greg
8:22
Just call runners out automatically if they enter fair territory running towards home. I can't fathom a reason you end up in fair territory running from third to home. I don't really care but if you don't want take out attempts there ya go.
Owen Watson
8:23
I think runners should be able to veer into fair territory if the throw goes the other way, but I see what you're getting at
Dave
8:23
So, baseball on the TV and the NCAA on the laptop, or NCAA on the TV and baseball on the laptop?
Owen Watson
8:23
I have been really bad about watching March Madness this year, so I'd opt for the former.
BK
8:24
Is this TB/TOR game a contest of the best two defensive CF in baseball?
Owen Watson
8:24
Hmm, could make an argument for Cain, even Buxton.

8:24
BLERC makes an apropos acronym as well
Terrible Ted
8:24
Kiermaier wears eye liner, right?
Owen Watson
8:24
I have wondered this as well
Bork
8:24
Protect the fan from what? The other fan on the other side of the stadium?
Owen Watson

Kevin Kiermaier is to Fielding as ___________ is to _______________.
Brett Lawrie's Empty Redbull Can
8:26
Thanks Owen, used up the entire character limit
Jeff
8:26
Baseball on TV, baseball on laptop, baseball on phone. It's opening day.
Owen Watson
8:27
I like this
BK
8:27
Owen would you be more likely to get a hit off of Dickey or Smyly?
Owen Watson
8:27
I would say if I got to start on a 3-0 count with Dickey and he threw me a "fastball," I'd choose him.
8:28
Man, my MLB.tv is so laggy right now. Been struggling with their PS4/iPhone apps this year.
Milwaukee dave
8:28
One brewer question how confident should I be jimmy Nelson and taylor jungmann can shut down the sf offense the next two days?
Owen Watson
8:29
Not very confident? I like Nelson, but his control just goes haywire sometimes. I'll be interested to see what Jungmann can do this year, given his tail-off at the end of last season.
Toon
8:29
Jose fernandez or syndergaard
Owen Watson
8:29
Syndergaard simply based on injury history
Cam
8:30
Kershaw! KERSHAW! Why is this chat about anything other than Kershaw?! Is there even any other baseball going on?
Owen Watson
8:30
OK I'LL SWITCH IT ON
Cam
8:31
Jesus is to religion.
Terrible Ted
8:31
Revlon is to eye liner.
BK
8:31
Also sucks on my PS4 but works great on my iPad
Owen Watson
8:31
I think they usually have trouble with PS4 early in the season, or that's what I'm telling myself.
Sam C
8:31
Someone posted in the chat yesterday a "Beyond the Box Score" article on how to get rid of MLB.TV lag
Owen Watson
8:31
I will look!
Guddha
8:33
Hey Owen, who do you think should hit leadoff on the Dodgers, given current state of health/probable production?
Owen Watson
8:34
Tough one, given that I don't think they have an obvious option with what's going on, health-wise.
8:35
I know the money situation, but Crawford is just rough out there. Van Slyke? Pederson? Someone with some OBP?
Michael
8:35
Gut feeling... does fWAR overrate or underrate Kiermaier?
Owen Watson
8:35
Under
