    glad you reminded me
    mom has been watching the replay games and i told her this was the start of a new year
    as much as we find it annoying this is about it for her to look forward to
    hope she makes it through the year and the team surprises us

    I get that SD beat LA in the post and all signs point to YES on the Magic 8Ball .... But like many here, we know SoCal. And San Diego is the biggest bitch town there is. Other than Frisco, SD is a shitty sports town with huge douchebags for fans.

    Beaches are awesome and lovely and all that ... But as for their teams and fans ... they deserve every bad thing that comes their way.

    these games are near-unwatchable, and it has nothing to do with it being spring training
    the pitcher/hitter clock is annoying as fuck
    fuck you manfred

    It's fucking maddening... do you remember in Apocalypse Now when Chef got off the PBR and went ashore into the jungle to get some mangoes for a recipe ? Then while he was looking, a tiger came at him and when he got back aboard he freaked totally out, screamed, and started taking off his clothes ? " A fucking tiger ??!!"
    I envision some pitcher doing that before the season ends with this red clock shit counting down...
    Absolutely...never get off the fucking boat...

    Sure. Makes sense. They get paid the same to work less, be less skilled, be less competitive. Why not support that, right?

    well i wasn't planning on spending much time or money at the ravine this year anyway but i'd guess concession prices will have to go up to compensate
    as far as watching it on tv i'm cool w it i think

    Hey, I get it. I snuck plenty of games in last year myself. I wasn't aiming my sarcasm at you.

    I was riffing on the players. They want a faster game. Ok. Let's see if that makes for a better game. I'm skeptical of course but... I'll wait and see.

    didn't take it that way at all
    business wise there is a downside to cutting 30% of the time off a game but as a fan of watching it on tv i don't have a problem so far
    tomorrow will be the first chance i get to really sit down and watch a game but i did watch a couple of innings of replay last night and it seemed reasonable idk

    I think coke will make a resurgence, a la Steve Howe, to facilitate the sped up format.
    8 balls rule again!

    he was moving second to third on a dp ball to third and when he dipped inside to avoid the throw
    his next step looked like he rolled his foot to the outside and immediately left his feet and tumbled
    came up holding his knee and had to be helped into the golf cart
    kid was visibly upset and despondent
