By saying that DFS will be dead in a couple of years, I think Paul is more talking about Armageddon. Could be wrong though.
Paul Swydan
5:08
Hah. I just mean that it will wither. The prize pools are dependent on fickle, casual fans, who will move on to something else in due time.
Sage

My best guess is that, since these games are more widely watched, commentators don't want to scare casual viewers away with complicated/boring analysis.
Paul Swydan
5:09
But there is a way to do that without deriding new information. Some announcers clearly just want to play to the lowest common denominator of their audience by insulting new information. And that's sad and pathetic.

I know the Dodgers bench coach goes on the phone and gives a thumbs up/thumbs down for challenges
Paul Swydan
5:09
OK, uncle.
Sam Clifford

speaking of the simpsons, i thought Vin had voiced himself on all those episodes. I was disappointed to learn otherwise.
Paul Swydan
5:10
Haha, definitely not him. That'd be very cool though.
Lenard

Had nightmares for Stroman's ACL there. Probably will every time he fields his position this year.
Sir Nerdington, just turn it off and on again.
Paul Swydan
5:10
Yeah, sorry, I should have suggested that.
Longo with 2 hits. That's gotta be nice to see if you're a Rays fan.
Mike Oxlong
5:11
I wanted to be a garbage man when i was a kid because riding around hanging off the back of a truck was so cool. I'd be so disappointed now with the mechanical arms.
Paul Swydan
5:11
The mechanical arms are not only creepy, but I don't think they save any time.
Shirtless George Brett
5:11
the worst thing about replay is when its used to see if a guys foot came off the bag a millimeter for a split second after he stole the base easily.
Paul Swydan
5:11
Yeah, the plays at bases are tough.
Smooth
5:12
I meant that the review of the neighborhood play will result in middle infielders staying on the bag longer, which could lead to more injuries despite the new slide rule.
Paul Swydan
5:12
Oh, I see. I don't think that will be the case, but I guess we'll see.
Oh!
Don't see that from Goins too often.

I cut the cord Paul. No ESPN 2.
Paul Swydan
5:13
It is on Watch ESPN. Just get someone to give you their cable password.

2015 will go down as the golden era for DFS?
Paul Swydan
5:13
I think so.

Pirates announcers called pitch framing a new term in the earlier game ("Talking about new terminology... pitch-framing!"). This is from an organization that has taken advantage of the concept for years.
Paul Swydan
5:13
Well it's a new term for an old concept.
Lenard

My friend did a career presentation on being a garbage man in high school. The teacher failed him because that "wasn't a real job"
Paul Swydan
5:14
Wow that's pretty harsh.
Sir Nerdlington
5:14
At this pace there will be 0 homeruns hit in MLB this year.
Paul Swydan
5:14
I'm worried. Somebody hold me.
Lenard
5:14
Another student's dad was a garbage man. All hell broke loose.
Paul Swydan
5:14
Oh wow.
Who_Is_Zorbist?

"For him that was a routine play"
Paul Swydan
5:14
Yeah, just for him.
Bip
5:15
Tulo's hands are magical
Paul Swydan
5:15
That comment could be taken in a number of ways.
Who_Is_Zorbist?
5:15
No. Pitch presentation is a new term. Framing...old, old, old
Paul Swydan
5:15
Eh. I don't think so. I never heard pitch framing before 4-5 years ago.

Manfred is on the Jays broadcast
