You're right, they are the old style banners that scroll, supposedly between pitches. That's a violation of rules (I remember when these billboards were first introduced and it was made very plain that they must not be changing during play. That's why the green screen tech is so popular. If the Nats had lost this game, they would have had reason to contest it and probably would have won. That Zimmerman got knocked down by a batted ball while the sign was changing... that was uncool.
 
I don't think the Marlins have the group intellect to do it on purpose, though.

 
"Can't hurt steel,hes fine"{#Lol}

I remember his rookie year.It was in the 50's and raining and his Mom was there.The strolling announcer asked her if he minded the rain.She was like"oh no,he'd stay out all year in anything pitching until dinnertime"(Wisconsin)

Then an inning later the announcers,who I assume have multiple feeds, backed up what I thought was an acid flashback.(just kidding,I've never done that*cough*).

 I don't really care.If my Pops is Ok tomorrow I'll call it a + day and let Vegas deal with it.

 I've got no skin in this.

Just too lazy to use character map to say my 2 cents.

Not sure because I'm not watching, but usually those are green screens... players and people in the ballpark only see green panels; the advertising is dropped in electronically "in the truck." So the white is just on your TV, the players don't see it.

Wow,the Marlins are a dirty organization.

 They keep turning the background signs behind home plate from *.com or whatever* to blank white while the Nats pitcher is in his windup.

Did this GOD you speak of INTEND for the Cubs to give up 6 runs in the first inning?

 

 Yeah I have to admit those six run innings were a bit of a problem for us.  We really need to work on doing that a little less often.

they came right back and got 3 off of Kershaw... that's more than they have a right to expect, so too bad they're in the hole, that's probably all they're gonna get now. Altho they did bring the tying run to the plate just now...

It's the 40 man roster.  They're all back now.  Not only that but I've heard Jackson is coming off the DL to start tomorrow for the game I'm going to.  Given that Soler has played two days in a row there's not much chance I'll get to see him this year now.  And as if that weren't bad enough their probable starter is Kershaw.  Sometimes I don't do a very good job of picking dates.
 

 
I hate to say it but the best thing about the game will probably be that you got to see Kershaw.

These guys used to have a page with a short but absolutely brutal bio of the upcoming visiting left fielder along with a forum that kept remarkably focused on its one topic of good and original heckling.  It was truly inspirational at times.  The fact that anyone anywhere on the entire Internet could post there without any sort of registration probably had something to do with its being discontinued.
