Bronson Arroyo's inner monologue would def be voiced by Matthew McConaughey.

4:04
Does span have the same or worse arm then johnny Damon did at cf ?
Jeff Sullivan
4:04
Not close to that bad
Sean Dolinar
4:04
I want to hire McConaughey to narrate my thoughts.
Rols
4:05
So why did the Brewers let Peralta hit if they were just going to bring Torres in to start the inning?
Jeff Sullivan
4:05
I guess they didn't want to burn a hitter for a bunt
Ryan
4:05
Bumgarner looks sketchy today, but that's probably just the illness, right? Or do you think Cueto and/or Shark have a legitimate shot to out-produce him this year?
Jeff Sullivan
4:06
It's not like Cueto or Samardzija seem particularly stable right now. Wild cards everywhere!
Trainman
4:06
Jeff, not a Mariners fan but what are your expectations this year?
Jeff Sullivan
4:06
84 wins
Jeff
4:06
What non-Felix pitcher are you most interested in watching today?
Jeff Sullivan
4:06
Richards, then...Hill?
Q-Ball
4:08
6 through 9 of Cubs order tonight: Schwarber, Soler, Montero, Russell. Will pitchers have to pray for Cubs injuries to get a break this year? Wow....
Jeff Sullivan
4:08
Plenty of reason to think that collection could underachieve! Schwarber whiffs a lot, Soler whiffs a lot, Russell just had a 90 wRC+, and Montero is a non-special aging catcher
4:09
Okay I can't do this anymore, switching to Mariners/Rangers
Adam
4:10
Is everyone going to move to the Seattle - Texas game now?
Jeff Sullivan
4:10
Hop on board!
LJS
4:10
Any hope for Schwarbs to be not-terrible in left? I wasn't thrilled by *his* Def. in ST, what I saw...
Jeff Sullivan
4:10
I could see him finishing with a better UZR than Soler
but still not real good FWIW
4:11
First weak ball in play of the season for Aoki!
Terrible Ted
4:11
How many Richards changeups do you expect to see today?
Jeff Sullivan
4:11
2. Greatly hoping for more
4:12
Weak ball in play for Marte!
Poor Man's Rick Reed
4:12
Mariners/Rangers, announcers sound excited, sun is shining brightly, it feels like Opening Day again!
MJA
4:12
No interest in Iglesias? (I am a Reds fan, please give me something)
Jeff Sullivan
4:12
I like him. I like Richards more is all
Chris
4:13
Are there any stats that show how much a pitcher like Dallas Keuchel is helped by the shifts the Astros do? Curious how he would fare on a less shift-oriented team.
Jeff Sullivan
4:13
Forget this question. Cano home run!
Last year he had two home runs through June 21st
4:14
Anyway as for the question, BIS does have numbers like that, but we don't have them to my knowledge
LJS
4:14
Is Seattle fun as a tourist? Is it public-transportable?
Jeff Sullivan
4:15
Moderately public-transportable. It's a big, big place, with desirable areas spread out, but it's a fun city to visit
Jeremy
4:15
Matt Duffy never slugged higher than .291 in 3 years at Long Beach State. This evolution seems absolutely insane to me
Ikoa Iron
4:15
Do Mariners really have no better option to lead off?
Craig Edwards
4:15
I'm not sure if the schedule was switched with the delayed beginning, but I am here now to answer questions or comments.
Jeff Sullivan
4:15
Aoki has a career .353 OBP
It's Craig! Hi Craig!
I got bumped an hour back because the early game didn't exist
4:17
So the Cano home run was 110mph via Statcast
