Cesar Hernandez goes yard!

Buxton breakout begins ... maybe
Eno Sarris

Cesar! Off Reds Opening Day starter Scott Feldman! I think Cesar has tools and this is the year he plays smarter on the basepaths and in the field.

I've crossed that off bucket list and it's brought me closer to kicking bucket

ESPN headline for the Dodgers/Padres preview: "Dodgers optimistic ahead of opener ". One might call that an understatement when said opener involves Kershaw vs. J. Chacin
Travis Sawchik
4:16
Ha. Breaking news flash
David
4:17
As expected, the Padres take an early lead against Kershaw.
Wade boggs' head
4:17
And yet, 1-0 Padres.

Gsellman closing out the 9th for the Mets!
Eno Sarris
4:19
V weird. I bet it's a schedule thing.

How can you have a "schedule thing" on the first day of the season?
Travis Sawchik
4:19
Dodgers broadcast talking about Schimpf and swing path
Nice
Eno Sarris
4:20
Well no Familia, and maybe the schedule doesn't have Gsellman starting right away, maybe he stacks up as the fifth guy?
Adam
4:21
Gsellman not starting until Sunday, using Thor again b/c rest days
Eno Sarris
4:21
There you go.

Kershaw is sooooo good and everyone knows what is coming http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/what-if-clayton-kershaw-werent-so-predi...
4:22
I want to see Kershaw throw a 3-0 non-fastball today ... he never has
Eno Sarris
4:22
Gonna happen sooner or later: his mix is starting to converge like you see with older pitchers.

Saw Joe Davis showing a graphic and giving an explanation of OPS+ a couple of days ago during the broadcast. I think he is going to be great
Eno Sarris
4:24
He reads! I think he'll be good.
Travis Sawchik
4:24
I'm pretty sure I met Joe Davis a couple years back when he was doing an ESPN3 broadcast at Clemson. Quite a rise!
Eno Sarris
4:25
Duffy 93. Still above-average for a lefty, but not quite league leading.
A Different Joe

Meanwhile ESPN is trying to figure out what the 4 phones in the Mets dugout are for

Anyone discuss Graveman? What's your take on hI'm Eno?
Travis Sawchik
4:26
I think the Mets' TV crew should call every game for every team
Eno Sarris
4:26
Graveman has improved his command by going to the sinker (his best pitch) 80+% of the time, but that's also ruined his ceiling. I think he's a Dude.
Larry Williams
4:27
Travis, I know it's one game, but does it change your mind about Cole at all? Also, it's a positive that Polanco is playing, right?
Travis Sawchik
4:28
No. He still heeds to trust changeup or find another offering ... still leans too much on fastball...still lets big inning get him once in awhile
(((Zyklon B-ait)))
4:28
Matt Kemp just TOOTBLANed to end the game.. down 6
Eno Sarris
4:28
Matt Kemp: all about the teaching moments.
Travis Sawchik
4:28
Duffy got Buxton to swing and miss on fastball, changeup and slider
Zach
4:28
eno, do you ever think that you overrate velocity? what about looking at "life" on a fastball / is that measurable
Yasiel
4:29
What do you guys think Vin's doing right now
