Speaking of March Madness, Ive never understood why they have the championship game on Opening Day every year. I can't imagine Sunday or Tuesday would be that much worse ratings-wise than Monday...
Paul Swydan

Well Sunday is the Women's Final.
1:32
But yes, I agree with you.

Hawk for sure, and I really don't like the Rockies TV guys.

Rockies broadcast crew is really underrated IMHO - really enjoy their broadcasts...

Paul vs Casey in a steel cage match.

Ugh, I can't stand the Rockies guys.
I have met very few people in my life who are more full of themselves than Drew Goodman.

One time I was doing a survey on people's favorite baseball books. Jeff Huson told me had literally never read a baseball book.
But yeah, they're awesome.

Thor's 93 mph sliders are just unfair.

Best pitcher/batter match up we'll see today?
Paul Swydan
1:34
Syndergaard/Freeman? Cole/Mookie?
Estrada/Machado?
Casey
1:34
Stanton v. Strasburg?
MG
1:34
We just had Strasburg/Stanton in the top of the second
GERB
1:34
Kluber Darvish!
Brian
1:35
Darvish/EEE
GERB
1:35
Nevermind, misread
Paul Swydan
1:35
Ha, and I misread your answer. We both lose.
Dave Cameron
1:36
Thor/Freeman is the right answer, I think.
Quintana/Miggy not bad either.
Paul Swydan

Speaking of examples, Nick Markakis is a great example of a player that people in the game insist is very good even though we know he really isn't.
Clay Suckholz
1:37
Thor v Markakis!
Dave Cameron

100 mph with movement.
Sick.
Doug

If Madbum starts to decline as a pitcher do the Giants convert him to a position player?
Paul Swydan
1:37
He can't be any worse in LF than Jarrett Parker, right?
Aspergillus
1:38
Did you hear what Flemming said yesterday on the broadcast about how they are now tracking pitch velocity out of the hand (as opposed to closer to home plate last year), so everyone's velocity will be up a bit? Is this true?
Paul Swydan
1:39
I don't know if it is or isn't, sorry.
Dave Cameron
1:39
Best bet would be to ask Mike Petriello on Twitter.
He should know.

How do the Mets get Conforto into the lineup without making a trade?
Dave Cameron
1:40
Wait for Duda to get hurt.
Should take a week.
Paul Swydan

I love this new MLB commercial break screen. So much better than the old black screen.
Paul H.
1:41
If / when Duda gets hurt any chance Conforto can play first?
Dave Cameron
1:41
Bruce to 1B, Conforto to RF.

Do the statcast exit velo leaderboards include foul balls? I don't think they do but it wouldn't be all that weird or useless if they did.
