Carson, I watch every single Kershaw start, and Vin Scully, god bless him, referred to approximately 75% of his curveballs "changeups" and the other 25% "slow curves." There was no difference between these two pitches.

Saw Vin call it a changeup often enough to make me thing it was on person

Did you know Scully invented the term "breaking ball"? He said it was because sometimes you couldn't tell the difference from the press box between the two, so he kind of made it up as a catch all term.

Isn't 1/2 a sidearmer?
Carson Cistulli
5:54
So what fraction is Quis, then, Eno?

Carson do you think Matt Boyd will have a good year? I know he was one of your fringers a few years back.
Eno Sarris
5:55
Quis looks like just short of Bradford and Ziegler. 1/3?
Carson Cistulli
5:55
The velocity remains a concern. He benefited from a bump a couple years ago, but I'm pretty sure he's just 90-92 now.
So I am, too, I guess.
So a softball pitch is 0/1, then?

After Miguel Sano murdered a Duffy FB in the last AB: BB, CH, CH, CH (popout)
Trevor Gobble

That must be a 1/8

Did that Votto foulout coujt as an IFFB? Very few things to root for as reds fans. Cant lose one on opening day.
Eno Sarris
5:58
yes! sorry.
Brian

So what chance do we give Diaz to hold on to his roster spot after Kipnis returns?
Carson Cistulli
5:58
Not particularly great, unless a corner-outfield spot opens up, maybe.

BAH GAWD THAT'S ZACH BRITTON'S MUSIC

Zach Britton in outside of a save situation. Has Buck Showalter responded to the criticism?
Ghost of Greg Maddux Past

How are we not talking about Britton pitching in a tie game in the ninth against the Blue Jays?
Lorcan

Rule V guy now pitching for the padres
Travis Sawchik
5:59
I suppose pitching Britton was on Buck's to-do list early this season
Carson Cistulli
5:59
Perhaps it's more efficient to say a Rule 5 guys *isn't* pitching for the padres.

Junior Guerra is on crutches. This is going to be more than a 10-day absence, Counsell says.

Interesting usage of Oh last night, and now this! RP usage revolution
Carson Cistulli
6:00
Ack. That's unfortunate about Guerra.
Travis Sawchik
6:00
That's awful news
Tyler

that video is still overhand! Pitcher is just leaning all the way over.
Eno Sarris
6:00
Yeah that's funny.

Jenny Finch? 0 Arm slot?
Eno Sarris
6:01
But it's also easy to get too complicated really quickly: what's his hand slot, what's his arm slot, what's his spine tilt.

Do we think Kershaw can hold this lead?
It'll be tough against this rejuvenated Padres lineup.

Jeremy Hellickson just had an RBI triple. i think i
Eno Sarris
6:02
yes
Tyler
6:03
think hand slot is the best way to discribe it.
