I agree with this.
1:55
That didn't really look like a strike
1:56
Seems Wainwright is leaving a lot of curves up and yanking them pretty far gloveside
Another bad curve thrown to Freese there tbh

Daren Willman: "Statcast had Liriano's GB at 104 MPH off the bat... Wow."
Baseball is fun

Command really doesn't look great, and he's throwing 89-90. Cold and early, though.

89-90 is normal
Command is just off

I've never been to PNC and obviously you can't tell everything (or even all that much) from TV, but I don't see what is so nice about this park. What is it that everyone loves?

It's clean and open. It's got good food. The view from behind the plate of the bridge and water and city might be the best in the MLB. The field and stadium itself is pretty. It's just a great place to watch a ballgame

Thoughts on the new Weezer album? imo it is v good

You're not the first person I've heard say this. That's surprising. Suppose I'll have to give it a listen. Had all but written them off
Hey, a Cardinals batter was able to lay off Liriano's out of zone stuff!

The view is breathtaking, even more so when youre there

It's beautiful, that's what's so great!
Tim Spooneyberger

Look from home plate out!

Liriano is getting so much movement on his other pitches that he's using the fastball in the zone as a putaway pitch and just freezing guys.
august fagerstrom
2:03
He's a lot of fun to watch pitch

Whats Pittsburgh like around the stadium? We hear about other stadiums and the area around being good or terrible (aka Mets), but not really anything about PNC

2:04
Downtown is right across the bridge and it's pretty nice
august fagerstrom
2:04
Yeah, I mean, geez. Look at that view.
That... was not a good throw
The Hamburglar
2:07
Why would you even bother with 2nd? There's 1 out. Get the 2nd out at first, then trust Liriano to be nasty against a LH batter
august fagerstrom
2:07
Was a bad bunt. Right in front of the plate, as soon as he saw, it he probably made the snap judgment. Not much time to make that call! I like the aggression
That was a pretty sweet double play. Heck of a throw by Mercer

I'm REALLY confused. WHat happened to the Cubs-ANgels game?
august fagerstrom
2:10
It's not a regular season game
Nicholas

Have you been to Safeco, especially in the past couple years? I think it's a better ballpark than AT&T. Yeah AT&T has the best views, but Safeco is easier to wally around, has a great bullpen area, has better food/beer, and better stadium things such as screens and reader boards
august fagerstrom
2:10
I have not. I really want to go

If you had to guess, will Joey Bats be wearing a Jays jersey come opening day 2017?
august fagerstrom
2:10
If I had to guess I would guess no

How excited are you for Kluber vs Price? I think thats the matchup that Im most looking forward to watching this week.
august fagerstrom
2:12
It's a hell of an Opening Day matchup. Probably the best one this year
Jerome Walton
2:13
Is it odd that the Cardinals only right hander off the bench is the catcher?
august fagerstrom
2:13
Well they're facing a lefty so they're just all in the lineup
2:14
There's that Wainwright curve
2:15
Probably the best one he's thrown today
Threw two real good ones to Polanco there
