It's getting more likely. They just need to bump the national filler ads or the "commercial break in progress" slide and pick up the local cable co ads. Cable doesn't like it but we're getting our internet from a cable provider so why should they care? I don't want more ads, but if that's the sticking point, go ahead and show me the ads.

 
Exactly. I'm paying more for high-speed internet than for basic cable.

We're just doomed if people don't start hitting baseballs where opposing players don't happen to be standing. What is it about Samardzija that breeds the no run support thing? How does that follow him from team to team? We're bringing FJP* out of the bullpen... as some writer said, "that's a bad sign."
 
So this is the time of year when all Giants fans say "welp, that was a fun season" and then Bochy pays a guy who knows a guy and players suddenly find their swing and other managers make horrible moves and hey there we are.

The delay is 90 minutes after the game ends. I do watch a lot of games on delay, and I'm getting better at not seeing spoilers. You bookmark this page, which never shows scores. On your "streaming device" you set the prefs to hide scores, although that mysteriously reset last week and showed me the game score just as I sat down to watch. Saved me 3 hours of disappointment but that's not the point.

 
 Doesn't really matter if it's 90 minutes or 9, the system still sucks.  But as I've said before though there really is no substitute for being in the park and I've done real well in that regard this season.  As soon as the rosters expand I'm going to run off to check out all the new kids and set a new personal record by going to a baseball game five consecutive days.  Just to avoid your getting too jealous I won't mention who we're playing.

Nevermind your plight, I always wondered about this. They say picking off a runner at first is easier for a lefty but that makes no sense to me. Seems like throwing to first with the right hand, you're already cocked and loaded, can just throw across your body. Lefty has to drop the left foot back, load up and throw. I guess I should try it but it seems counterintuitive. Seems like right handers throwing to first would be much quicker.

 
It's not that the actual motion is any easier for him it's that he can do it without taking his foot off the rubber and not have a balk called as long as the leg in the air makes its initial motion toward the bag he is throwing to.  The only way for a righty to throw to first or a lefty to throw to third is to step off the rubber first.

I think there's less distance with the LHP,right? But the RHP gets to plant,pivot,etc.Stronger throw,less time to the base? I dunno.

  This is way over my head.
