Wow.
That was just a masterful inning by Liriano
Classic.
1:43
ban all "ironic on-pace" jokes from Twitter please

Holliday is already done at first base. Odd.
august fagerstrom
1:43
wut
1:44
Huh. Pham out with oblique tightness. Holliday to LF, Adams in at 1B.
That's not great
The Hamburglar
1:45
Polanco is going to go deep here
august fagerstrom
1:45
^ This guy came pretty close
Bad Hermit

I don't Twitter. "Ironic on-pace"?
august fagerstrom
1:46
"Francisco Liriano is on pace for 2,435 strikeouts this season" or wahtever
whatever*
Josh Harrison's beard doesn't even look real
from Daren Willman: "109.2 MPH off the bat of Gregory Polanco... He only hit 16 balls that hard or harder last year. Not too shabby."

1:48
It's really pronounced "jerko"?
august fagerstrom
1:48
That's what I've always said, yeah
These outside targets by Yadi are crazy
He's like in the other batter's box
The Hamburglar
1:49
I kind of trailed off with Spring Training coverage, but when is Kang expected to be back?
august fagerstrom
1:49
4-6 weeks, I believe
Daniel
1:49
Is there anything predictive about early-season off-the-bat speed of hits? A sign of improvement? (Similar to a pitcher's velocity being way down)
august fagerstrom
1:50
Don't have enough data for this yet
I doubt it, though, because a pitcher's velocity pretty much has no variables, whereas a hitter's exit velocity has plenty. Data is nosier
?
1:50
This camera angle is terrible. Every pitch looks like its in a batters box.
august fagerstrom
1:50
If you've got MLB.tv, switch to the Cardinals feed! It's the most perfect camera angle
1:51
welp
Francisco Liriano has the first RBI of the season
Makes sense
Rols
1:51
What's the strategy there with liriano swinging away?
august fagerstrom
1:51
He got a terrible pitch
zkello
1:52
The Pirates angle is perfect too
The Hamburglar
1:52
Is the Cardinals angle that much better than the Pirates?
august fagerstrom
1:52
Didn't check. I just know the Cardinals one is perfect so I stuck with it
?
1:52
What was being reviewed?
august fagerstrom
1:52
Whether the ball hit the baserunner on first
Wahahah
1:52
Jaso double right here
august fagerstrom
1:53
called a dinger earlier, still feeling it
not quite, but still a good thing
Daniel
1:53
I think it's cool that all the Pittsburgh teams have the same colors.
Connecting...
