I had an office with a door my last few years at the Rockies. Even better, one whole wall was a giant window, and it was the office at the end of the hall, so no one bothered me. I wish I could have had that office for the rest of my life.

Volquez is wild. Stop the presses!

Be men, and give us your obviously incorrect, blatantly biased and obnoxious hipster World Series predictions.

On Twitter, I said Cleveland over Dodgers, so I'll say that again.
Dave Cameron
1:21
Dodgers over Astros.

Terrible weather in my town today coupled with the thought of missing opening day at work/being Monday was a bummer to wake up to. Suddenly my boss (not a baseball fan) announces he's leaving at 12:30pm and I'm watching / chatting. Thank you Opening Day gods!

Paul - cardboard is tolerable roasted in the over, coated with bacon bits, and drizzled with maple syrup.
Paul Swydan
1:22
Yes, fair.
1:23
Volquez continues to dominate Bryce Harper. Uncanny!

I feel like I need to hear some poetic language about opening day from Bob Costas right now.

Go read Jason Linden's Opening Day piece at THT!

in a chat the other day, someone said cheeto sandwiches are delicious. What does that look like? Just bread and Cheetos? Is there more to a cheeto sandwich than that?
Dave Cameron
1:24
$100 says that was Eno.
Paul Swydan
1:24
Depends on if it's a hipster Cheetos sandwich. If so, add some srichacha to it.

Someone at Baseball Prospectus picked the Rockies not just to win the West, but the whole World Series. How would they do that?
Paul Swydan
1:25
Gray, Anderson and Freeland becoming the new Maddux, Glavine, Smoltz?
Even that might not be enough.
Dave Cameron

Predictions are a fairly silly exercise so they probably weren't taking it seriously.

Is this the least productive work-day of the year? Either this or the Monday after the super bowl right?
Dave Cameron
1:25
That's a pretty unusual event.
Paul Swydan
1:26
The first Thurs and Fri of March Madness are on the list as well.
That was a pretty nasty pitch from Volquez.
Dave Cameron
1:26
He's the classic example of why you can't just evaluate a pitcher on stuff.
His stuff is really good.
He's not.

The difference in skill between the Nats' top 4 hitters and bottom 4 hitters is really stark. (Though Rendon is out to be fair)
Dave Cameron

They're about as stars and scrubs as a good team gets.

Peri peri sauce is the best
Paul Swydan

That's the sauce at that chicken place we ate at in DC, right? I enjoyed that sauce.
Dave Cameron

Volquez Ks the side.

Teheran just fooled Yoenis. Why Teheran doesn't get the love that Quintana gets? I see both profiles as rather similar.
Dave Cameron
1:29
Quintana is a lot better.

I saw your comment. Glad you get to share the Masters and Opening Day with your son. Very cool.

I don't draft Mariners or Padres because their broadcasters (TV and radio) are unlistenable. Do you have ones you avoid?
Dave Cameron
1:30
I just mute guys like Hawk.
Paul Swydan

You don't like Don Orsillo?
That was for Rudy
