Tough to have a first baseman who can't routinely scoop the bouncers..
Travis Sawchik
5:28
True. Curious how Statcast is helping teams discern this skill ...seems important
5:29
Oh boy. Bethancourt appears to be hurt
Brian

OH NO!!!
Travis Sawchik

Slid into at the plate. Right knee
5:30
He's up and walking around. Staying in?

fascinating, in the earlier part of the chat, they said everyone can scoop, so why measure?

I'd like to know more about the value of it. I personally have watched Pedro Alvarez and Josh Bell play first base ... so there is some skill involved

Got spiked big time
Travis Sawchik
5:31
Yeah, jersey pants torn
5:32
He's staying in the game. Good

So a backup catcher gets injured covering home plate after a wild pitch HE threw as a relief pitcher? What a world!
Travis Sawchik
5:34
Crazy. Looks like he's OK

Has anyone ever played all nine positions in a season?
Eno Sarris
5:34
for some reason I think of Ryan Freel. I do think someone has gotten close. People say Buster Posey did this in college.

Holland throwing hard, but fastball doesn't seem to have much movement

God I hate his mechanics.

Jose Oquendo played all 9 right?

Here's an article for LJS about guys playing nine positions in one game: http://m.mlb.com/news/article/112257358/prime-9-few-have-played-everyw...

Sorry if this has been discussed and I missed it, but do you blame Mike Matheny at all for Oh blowing the save yesterday? 2 innings on opening day?
Travis Sawchik
5:38
I don't. Isn't this what we've wanted to see? The best RPs being freed of ninth-only duty?
Joe

Guy at Caden just caught Pillar's bat that he threw into the stands backhanded.
Dakota McKee

What was the padres thought process in keeping their rule V guys? Do they value them that much? Wouldnt they be better off working out a trade with the teams they claimed them from? How is Luis Torrens going to benefit from the major league bench?
Eno Sarris
5:40
They going to be real bad and their prospects are not going to be ready this year other than in the OF, so they took three guys that might be useful as backups when the rest of the guys come up I guess. I'd do it if I was going to be really bad.
Travis Sawchik

Guess this is not the day to verify that Austin Hedges has learned how to hit

I'm watching Buxton swing and miss

The key to getting Buxton out is never throwing him a strike
