Dave Cameron

It's in the feed section of the gameday app.

Is there very little talent spread in scoops because it isn't very difficult, or because every big league first basemen is awesome at it? I remember in little league first base being a key defensive position, but by the time you get to pro ball it's where you hide bad defenders.
Paul Swydan
2:10
The latter, I would think.
1-2-3 for Porcello
Southpaw the fuzzy alligator

As an adult you understand the scope of opening day. Kids can love a baseball game in August when the team is 10 games under

Stras contines to not manage contact very well.
Hanging curve.
Paul Swydan
2:11
Yes. Also, pretty sure my son's favorite game to attend was when he got to run the bases after the game. He (and me) probably couldn't tell you who won that day.

Marlins announcer lauding two out RBIs as what win baseball games, because apparently two out RBIs are more valuable than one out RBIs.

You have 10 seconds to select your walk-up music. Go.

Strasburg is the Hosmer of pitchers. His perception does not match reality
Dave Cameron
2:11
Uh, no. Stras is legitimately good.
Paul Swydan
2:12
How the hell did Bruce let that ball get past him?
That was Brad Hawpe-esque.

Dan Duquette is currently praising Joey Rickard's on base and defense skills on the Orioles pregame. Earlier on a radio show he defended pitcher wins. Not exactly inspiring confidence.

Jay Bruce plays right field like a giraffe.
Paul Swydan
2:13
Dan Duquette's job is to talk up his players, not be objective about them.
Sam
2:14
Is anyone else worried about the Yankees Red Sox rivalry? I'm a Yankees fan and I absolutely love Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts, can someone please help me?
Brian

I approve of the Pirates TV angle.

And i happily drafted Sanchez and Bird this year. End of days!
Dave Cameron

This Thor change-up really is great.
So he now has three plus pitches.
Matt Kemp: overmatched.
Paul Swydan
2:15
Hope he doesn't get hurt like every other Mets pitcher!
John Jaso

Really want to see a big day for CUTCH.
Paul Swydan
2:15
Lazy fly ball to center his first time up, but yes, I agree.
Cole blew it by Benintendi, who seemed to be looking breaking ball.

It's crazy because Thor's fourth best pitch is his curve ball, a pitch that was easily his best off speed pitch like a year and a half ago.
Dave Cameron
2:17
98 mph two-seamer with run.
I don't know how you hit this.
Brian
2:17
94 slider?
Dave Cameron
2:18
His slider is faster than the average fastball.
Kershaw is still the best, but Syndergaard is the most fun pitcher to watch.
His stuff is just unfair.
Trevor Gobble

Uneventful 1st in Fenway. Porcello and Cole both looked good
