Carson, does it ever get exhausting using the English language in the strange way you use it?
Carson Cistulli
2:35
Oh, fuck hell yes. The problem is, I basically wasn't literate until age 14 or 15, so writing is basically the least natural act for me. Thus, I'm compelled to write like an alien that's only ever read Samuel Johnson.

Carson, your thoughts on those beer cups at some stadiums that fill FROM THE BOTTOM?

Unnatural, a little bit. Sublime, also.

Jeff, I also routinely forget that the Padres exist. Yesterday was probably the first time I've ever actually seen what Jedd Gyorko looks like. Holy shit is that an average, non athletic looking everyman
Jeff Sullivan
2:36
Kind of like what you'd picture of a Jedd Gyorko

Which regular FG chat host will be the first to use "It's April", when answering a panicked fan about a slow start from their favorite team or player?
Jeff Sullivan
2:37
Dave
Carson Cistulli
2:37
Oh, definitely Dave.
Jeff Sullivan
2:37
probably to every question in his Wednesday chat

Status update: Brewers no longer winning.
Or even tied.
Jeff Sullivan

Carson's pick has now lost the last lead it will have all season long
Jason

Does Dave hate us as much as it seems like he does?
Carson Cistulli
2:39
It's not you, it's him.
Jeff Sullivan
2:39
And you

Jeff, if an expansion MLB team decided to call themselves The Volcanoes would they instantly become your favorite team?
Jeff Sullivan
Carson Cistulli
2:39
Does that appeal to you, Sullivan?
Jeff Sullivan
2:39
It does appeal to me

What are your Opening Day rituals? For me, I always pull out a bottle of rare beer I've been saving and watch the White Sox. This year, it'll be a bottle of Founder's Kentucky Breakfast Stout and a desperate attempt to stay up late enough to finish the game from Eastern time.
Jeff Sullivan
2:40
I put on a Mariners game without dreading it

How many games does the Met's defense cost them this year? Watching them in person last night pretty clear Cespedes / Wright / Duda are all suspect. Infield is good up the middle but could argue Cespedes inability to catch a routine ball hit right at him was the difference last night.
Carson Cistulli

I haven't checked -- and likely won't -- but I'd *guess* that, were one to project strikeout rate merely from average fastball velocity, Wily Peralta's expected K rate would feature among the most sizable differences from his actual K rate.
Jeff Sullivan
2:41
Have to assume second-half Cespedes will be better than first-half Cespedes, in center, in the field. But it's pretty clearly going to be the team weakness

told you walsh is better than me

I would not object to Colin Walsh getting a bunch of PAs this year.

back in college I used to prepare a poor man's tailgate in my dorm room but now I'm an adult who sits at work sh*tposting in this chat instead of watching anything
Carson Cistulli
2:42
A pretty efficient summary of how all life is.

Craig Counsell looks like Craig Counsell Sr.'s son who somebody let into the dugout

Which current MLB player would you say is most likely to eventually run for President Of the United States?
Jeff Sullivan

Bryce Harper
Bob Pollard

Dave seems more likely in chats to smack down dumb questions. Is he like that in real life as well?
Jeff Sullivan
2:45
In real life I find him mostly smiley and agreeable
Sean Dolinar
2:45
He's a pretty good boss.
