Stadiums (and history of those stadiums) are probably my number one useless interest. Then uniforms.

Who has the best defense in the NL?
Jeff Sullivan
3:15
I want to say the Giants or the Reds
Tim
3:16
Which is your favorite RULE 5 player, Rickard or Goeddle?
Jeff Sullivan
3:16
Goeddel is more talented but I think Rickard is more likely to be a useful major-leaguer
Jason
3:17
Either of you guys get an advanced copy of "The Arm?" Will you read it?
Jeff Sullivan
3:17
No and yes!
Villar! A dinger!
K-Man
3:17
Top3 stadiums?
Jeff Sullivan
3:17
Golfed that one out
Sean Dolinar
3:17
Out of the 17 I've been to...I like Wrigley, Busch and PNC the best.
Jason
3:18
Can you make a pitcher's park with low fences and limited foul territory?
Jeff Sullivan
3:18
I should also note I'd put it somewhere out west
Comin's and Goins
3:19
Does Instagraphs = no Carson, or are those posts just fast-tracked for editing?
Jeff Sullivan
3:19
They get glanced at
Sean Dolinar
3:19
I also get to post my data viz there.

speaking of uniforms those royals unis with the gold were snazzy.
lefty
3:20
Who is your guilty pleasure you most watch that would draw the scorn of the FG crowd??? Nelson Cruz?
Jeff Sullivan
3:20
James Paxton?
Sean Dolinar
3:20
Yeah, gold really lends itself to the monarchy theme they have going on in KC.
David
3:20
What record would a team have if made up entirely of 0 WAR players?
Jeff Sullivan
3:20
48-114
David
3:21
Trying to figure out if a team of Kershaw, Trout, and a bunch of 0 WAR players would make the playoffs
Jeff Sullivan
3:21
Not close!

Is there ever a time where you completely stop worrying about a pitcher hurting his arm/shoulder? Like Bumgarner, Felix, price & Kershaw have thrown 1100+ innings the past five years. Felix started to maybe show some weakness last year, but other than that, we haven’t really seen any slowing down from others. Would it be safe to say certain pitchers have genetics/physiology to survive pitching?
Jeff Sullivan
3:22
Maybe worry the same as you would a hockey or football player getting a concussion. It could happen at any moment, but it's still unlikely and you can't be constantly preoccupied with concern
Poor Man's Rick Reed
3:23
So far, not a fun game for us pitching dorks out there.
Jeff Sullivan
3:23
Also it's only the third god damn inning
Holy whoa, Posey throws down to second instead of third on a pitch that got away!
Take that, slow-ass Chris Carter!
Would you rather..
3:24
Have Mike Trout on your favorite team, or date your celebrity crush?
Jeff Sullivan
3:25
The second one, just for the experience. I've already had Felix Hernandez
j6takish
3:25
What do you guys think carson is doing right this second?
Jeff Sullivan
3:25
Editing posts by Craig Edwards and Owen Watson
Sean Dolinar
3:26
I'd pick the latter as well.
LJS
3:26
What if Mike Trout is my celebrity crush?
Sam C
3:26
I liked Petriello's take that the previous year's worst team should have to wear Zubaz and Uggs to prevent tanking.
The Man with the Plan
3:27
Has the Phillies superb ST given them any hope of not finishing last in the NL East? I mean Franco alone can carry this team offensively this year like Stanton did 3 years ago
Sean Dolinar
3:28
With a lot of young players, you never really know how well they'll perform. Plus the Braves are in the NL East, too.
Jeff Sullivan
3:28
Buuuuuuuuuut Franco is not Giancarlo Stanton
