it blows my mind that guy is the pilot from Firefly.

Seeing him in other roles with short hair was a trip after seeing that movie
Anthony
2:48
Do you still backup your Estrada article? I don't see him being any good.
august fagerstrom
2:48
Yeah, I like the change
And the fastball works up in the zone even without the velo due to the spin

Will Marte have a 'breakout year' finally? He's been good, but it seems like there's still potential
august fagerstrom
2:50
Been a 4-5 WAR player each of the last three years
2:51
Pretty darn good

How does spin rate aid in a fastballs performance if it doesn't add extra velo?
august fagerstrom
2:51
Prevents it from falling as much as lower spin rate fastballs, giving it that "rising" effect
Extra life even without the velo

When you try and predict award winners, do you try to predict who other people will give the awrad to or do you predict the 'deserving' winners?
august fagerstrom
2:53
I didn't give much thought to how other people would vote
Like MVP being on a playoff team, etc.
Probably should have
Bad Hermit
2:54
I thought that straight fastballs were the "rising" fastballs.
august fagerstrom
2:54
well if it's straight, then it's straight

Liriano can't locate anymore, and the batters aren't biting
august fagerstrom
2:55
Liriano and Wainwright swapped command about halfway through
And yeah, Cardinals batters are laying off pitches slightly outside that they were swinging at earlier
Nice little in-game adjustment it seems
Andrew
2:55
Were media misled into believing that Bauer was Tribe No.4 early in ST, did it jump to wrong conclusion or did CLEFO simply completely change their minds over the past couple of weeks?
august fagerstrom
2:56
Little bit of all, I think, though mostly it was just the assumption
Can't tell if Cervelli stole that or it was just a bad call
I think the latter
Kvn
2:56
Clefo sounds like a reject Marx brother.
august fagerstrom
2:57
"The Sprinter"!

Will Carson's Daily Notes return for this season?
august fagerstrom
2:58
Imagine they will soon enough
The Dude of NY
2:59
Dodgers DL list to start the season
august fagerstrom

puke
Jeff
2:59
Should batters just not swing vs liriano? His entire game is based on swings and misses
august fagerstrom
2:59
They definitely should swing less
Thing is, that's hard
3:00
Because Liriano's stuff has tons of movement and he does a good job of starting pitches inside the zone and moving them out
Matt Holliday is brutally slow
Not like many people would've scored on that. He's just slow.
3:01
Probably should be Liriano's last batter?
lol josh harrison
3:02
HA he actually missed that. I thought he did that on purpose
