Omar out
Dave Cameron
10:13
It was close, but I thought he got in there.
10:14
Can't tell from either angle.
It's definitely close.
Trainman
10:14
That was a damn good throw from lagares regardless
Dave Cameron
10:14
These angles kind of suck.
10:15
Third base coach in the way, then you get ones where you can either see the leg or the base, but not both.

Re the situation like this where one angle shows the leg and another shows the base, can't they put them up side by side, exactly sync'd, and go frame by frame for us?
Dave Cameron
10:16
That would be nice.
Trainman
10:17
Mets get out of it. That was crucial
Nickle Toucher
10:18
Have the Royals actually hit a ball hard all night? I'm still so mystified by how they win games.
Dave Cameron
10:18
Their defense is legitimately amazing, and their bullpens the last few years have been crazy good. That helps.
Smooth
10:20
Commentators don't talk about the Royals' defense enough when they take about the "Royals' model" or whatever. To me, it's the single biggest takeaway from the team when it comes to lessons for building a winner.
Dave Cameron
10:20
They've talked about their defense a lot tonight.
Ryan
10:21
Which team's particular unit (bullpen, defense, rotation, etc.) do you think is actually the most "overlooked" by the media?
Dave Cameron
10:21
Dodgers rotation. The media talks about it like its garbage, but it's actually great.
Bat flipping you off
10:22
I think the Giants offense
Dave Cameron
10:23
Agree, also very underlooked, because it's not dinger-based.
Shirtless George Brett
10:24
how confident are you that Cleveland wins the central, Dave?
Dave Cameron
10:24
Well I picked the Tigers so not much.
Dave
10:24
I just think its really hard for people to realize just how amazing Kershaw is. Zips has him as worth 2 Sonny Grays
Dave Cameron
10:24
Yep.
Shirtless George Brett
10:25
could have swore it just saw Cleveland, haha. same question then?
Dave Cameron
10:25
Not confident. The AL Central is a whole bunch of mediocre teams.
Dave
10:26
Is there anyone in the AL at all that is much better than mediocre?
Dave Cameron
10:26
Maybe the Astros, if Keuchel repeats 2015 and Correa is the monster he looks like.
Shirtless George Brett
10:27
Jays? Or is the starting pitching that bad?
Dave Cameron
10:27
They could also be good, depending on health.
Duda is smoking some balls foul tonight.
jd
10:28
do you consider today opening day? Or tomorrow? Or Tuesday, if you're team doesn't play tomorrow?
Dave Cameron
10:29
There are just multiple Opening Days now.

Is Jonah Keri the nicest person you've met in baseball?
Dave Cameron
10:30
Jonah's awesome, obviously, but his defining characteristic is enthusiasm, I think. For just straight up niceness, it's actually hard to beat David Appelman. FG is owned by a very good human being.
10:31
(Now, boss, about that raise...)
Shirtless George Brett
10:31
I bet Jonah Keri wouldnt drive you all to a tire store.
Dave Cameron
10:31
Jonah has driven me around before. It was a frightening experience, but that was probably just because Boston is atrocious to drive in.
Mike Oxlong
10:34
SUCK IT SHIFT

10:34
Now they are just trolling David Wright...
BK
10:34
Wright really not looking very agile over there :(
Dave Cameron
10:35
He might have been out
