Mariners at Astros, April 5, 2017
« on: April 05, 2017, 07:14:37 pm »
Probably some lineups somewhere
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Is anyone seeing velocity on their feeds? All I see is the pitch count. From what I gathered it was the velocity that got people excited this spring. I'd like to know where he is.

T1:

Segura...quickly 0-2, 1-2, 2-2, 3-2...singles to RF
Haniger grounds to SS, Segura out 6-4, but too quick to turn two
Haniger swipes 2B
Cano...down 0-2...strikes out swinging
Cruz grounds out 4-3

No score.

Not sure, but Segura was tardy as shit on a 3-2 fastball, but just punched it over the 1B bag.

Springer...0-2...grounds out 6-3
Bregman walks
Bregman moves to 2B on a wild pitch, blocked but  good jump
Altuve flies out F9 to deep RCF, Bregman moves to 3B
Correa...down 0-2...grounds out 3U

No score after one

This might be a quick one.  Doug Eddings is finding strikes behind the dish.

I like it.  You'll never hear me complain about a big strike zone as long as it's consistent.

If you bring a sign to a baseball game that cannot be hung on a rafter that does not impede anyone's view, you are lower on the fan totem pole than the wavers, albeit only slightly, imo.

If you bring a sign to a baseball game that cannot be hung on a rafter that does not impede anyone's view, you are lower on the fan totem pole than the wavers, albeit only slightly, imo.

If said sign references "Houston, we have a problem" in any way, you should be beaten with that sign until you are, quite simply, dead.

Bregman doubles to LF corner, Dyson tries to apply kickball rules to Springer at 3b, but he's safe.

B3:

Marisnick pops out F4
Springer strikes out swinging at a pitch that bounces in front of the plate, but reaches on a wild pitch
Bregman doubles to LF, Springer to 3B
Altuve...3-2...strikes out swinging at a pitch in the dirt
Correa flies out F8

Astros still 0 for 2017 w/RISP

No score

He gets into those little spells every now and then.  It seems right now he's trying to hit a home run most times he's up.  He'll get in the groove soon enough, I'm sure.

As MM said, it's MLB at bat but you need to add the radio package for 19.99. For that cost, all MLB games can be streamed on radio and you can choose your preferred feed. There are no blackout/market restrictions for the radio.

It's already the third game of the season, and he's only had one hit.

Then Shake Shack must be 37 orders of magnitude worse than McDonald's because In-N-Out is absolutely, positively "eh, if there's nothing else within driving distance".

I just realized these Mariner jerseys have bedazzled numbers.  Like crying, bedazzling has no place in baseball.

He is swinging his ass off at everything, usually in the dirt or outside.

I know.  I'm not going to give up on him yet though.

Nothin to motivate like being behind.  We talked about this on OD...how the Astros seem to be able to score runs late.  Gonna need that now.

All fast food, mass produced burgers are middling at best and have appeal based almost solely on nostalgia. I have no problem with consumers having burger loyalty founded on memories of their youth, but those who choose to argue his or her nostalgic memory of a burger is better than someone else's is, at best, a nuisance.

Then Shake Shack must be 37 orders of magnitude worse than McDonald's because In-N-Out is absolutely, positively "eh, if there's nothing else within driving distance".

I've tried Shake Shack twice now, and would absolutely, positively prefer a Quarter Pounder.

At Shake Shack? They are classic crinkle cut, so I guess depends if you like that. I think In N Out is 100x better than McDonalds, but their fries aren't even close.

Only fair after it passes a base or a fielder.  Before that, it if goes foul, it's a foul ball.

I had In-N-Out in Fort Worth once, it was absolutely mediocre.  That was in comparison to the 20ish times I have had it in LA, it was always great out there. Fresh food and motivated employees go a long way.  As compared to the inner loop Whataburger schleps, who mostly are in a bad mood and get your order right about 2 times in 5.
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Sandra Lee???  What the fuck????  That'd be like fucking Kellyanne Conway.

You're right, wasn't it Giada? I wouldn't mind watching her make me crinkle cut fries and a thin ballpark burger in a spaghetti string top, so long as she had the decorum not to kneel at my table when she took the order.

I had In-N-Out in Fort Worth once, it was absolutely mediocre.  That was in comparison to the 20ish times I have had it in LA, it was always great out there. Fresh food and motivated employees go a long way.  As compared to the inner loop Whataburger schleps, who mostly are in a bad mood and get your order right about 2 times in 5.

Doesn't in-n-out have pretty different ingredients/produce for the cali and TX locations? I seem to remember that expansion was an issue because they typically only sourced beef and produce from certain butchers/farmers, and logistics made it difficult to deliver those fresh to new markets. That might also explain some of the difference.

Nothin to motivate like being behind.  We talked about this on OD...how the Astros seem to be able to score runs late.  Gonna need that now.
We compared this lineup to 2015. It's the 7th, that's when that team turned it on

Dodgers using laser markers to position outfielders.

Wow.  Ok, I missed that one.  More efficient than to keep waving them over, I guess.  Thanks.

They were using laser rangefinders then actually marking the field with paint before the game.

So they would mark the field differently for each batters?

Knowing he can throw a mid 90's fastball has got to be hell on the hitters when that change keeps coming.

And after six straight balls, Springer grounds into 5-4-3 double play.  So diaz threw 7 pitches, one of them within 9 feet of the plate and has two outs.  Awesome.

I thought I saw it clocked at 95.

I know he hit 95 earlier in the game.

I don't want to make assumptions, but Aoki strikes me as a guy who can lay down a sac bunt.

Reddick with a leadoff double...Aoki should be bunting
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Smart play by the RF to let the foul ball drop. Pays off as Segura snags a smash by Springer.

I hate bunting with a guy on 2nd and no outs, especially with a guy that Ks a lot on deck (Springer). Reddick is fast enough to score on most singles; why not give Aoki a chance to hit a single and win the game?

Because you want that runner at 3B with less than two outs.
