  3. So does this mean the #FreeBelt campaign can begin again?

    1. I believe Belt has finally been set free.

      /Belt gets benched when he struggles to start the year

  4. Bob Carpenter: "The Marlins had to watch the Nats take home a lot of hardware before this started."

    1. Carpenter is so bad I decided to watch the terrible Marlins broadcasters.

  5. Carpenter: "Zimmerman, the early favorite to win a Gold Glove this year!"

    1. That was a nice play.........

    2. Was saved by LaRoche digging that low throw out of the dirt.

  6. Mets give up a hit on the first pitch of the season. Baseball is really back!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Bryce Harper's home run was caught by a Jayson Werth lookalike. Really.

    ReplyDelete
  8. And Harper homers. Gonna be a long year in Miami.

  9. [Obligatory post about the attendance at the A's home opener] because they're die hard fans!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It wouldn't surprise me if they actually have a good attendance for tonight's game.

      Delete
    2. Perhaps, but knowing A's Fan as well as I do, they will have 10,000 show up tomorrow which gives them the superiority to drone on about how "blue collar" their fans are.

      Delete
    3. They'll probably have a good opening series. It's after that when I'm sure you'll see 10,000 people at the park.

      Delete
  10. So, Bob Carpenter thinks every Nat is going to win the Gold Glove. Never change Bob, never change.

    1. Thom Brennaman thinks he needs to take it easy.

    1. BURN IN HELL STEVE FINLEY!

  12. Pirates still using that rotating TV and radio booths. Terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Most underrated part of watching a Nats game on MASN: all the government contractors that are sponsors.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This inning is sponsored by Drones R Us!

    1. Games like this make me wish Mike & the Mad Dog were still on the air together

      Delete
    2. THE YANKEES ARE TERRIBLE MIKE!

      Delete
  16. Blow up the Yanks. They are dead!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Almost an hour in and the Yanks-Red Sox are still only in the 2nd inning. And the Dodgers-Giants are scheduled to come on after that game. ESPN might not switch over until the third inning.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The Yankees are truly old when they can attract Martha Stewart!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I do miss Kristina Akra on the Nats games. What a shame she has to now pretend to be interested in what Brian Kenny & Harold Reynolds "debate."

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Why couldn't they have taken Amy G???? Oh that's right, her ball and chain also works for CSN Bay Area as the Raiders beat writer.

      Delete
    2. Too bad Jaymee Sire is now on the obscure hours of ESPN.

      Delete
    3. What hours does she work on ESPN, Long? I've been trying to find her. And what channel?

      Delete
    4. Haha. No more eye candy on MASN. Just Bob & FP.

      Delete
    5. @Keith I have no clue. They have way way way too many anchors that it's impossible to figure out.

      Delete
  20. Things I'm not looking forward to this baseball season. The length of Sawks/Yanks games. This is a painful reminder.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. All AL East matchups feel like you can start & finish "War & Peace" before the game does.

      Delete
    2. To be fair Kris, most divisional games are long. Giants-Dodgers game can take forever to play.

      Delete
    3. You haven't lived through a 3 hour 40 minute O's/Jays game.

      Delete
    4. @Kris Amen. Could be the case of John Farrell disease. I noticed his teams are bloody slow.

      Delete
    5. @long All of the AL East managers overmange division games. Maddon, Showalter, especially Girardi.

      Delete
  21. Cubs are already Cubsing

  22. I'm still bitter I can't hear the drunk uncles lose it on Dickey's knuckler for another day.

    1. And you don't have Ashby anymore. Damn.

    2. He went home to cover the Stros. I'm stuck with Jack Morris, it's that bad when you are begging for the drunk uncles.

  23. Steve Levy on MLB PxP tonight. It think he dearly misses calling NHL games so much.

  24. Oh hey, Rockies/Brewers is about to begin!

  27. Pretty impressive, Jackie Bradley Jr.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Carpenter: "Don't walk [Werth], Ricky. Harper's waiting on deck."

    ReplyDelete
  29. FP "You and I were the only ones who didn't win awards before the game."

    Bob "We're not in it for the awards."

    /no kidding.

  30. I need more Jenny Dell for this Sawks/Yanks game. It's putting me to sleep.

  31. The awkward moment when you hear Youk chants...at Yankee Stadium.

  32. How in the bloody hell do you walk Vernon Wells?

    ReplyDelete
  33. We getting close to 2:40 & the game in the Bronx isn't even out of the 4th inning yet. ESPN must be loving this.

    1. I think they will be worst than Houston for some strange reason.

      Delete
    2. I agree with you Long. They'll be worse than Houston. At least Houston is playing young guys. The Marlins are playing Juan Pierre, Casey Kotchman, and Placido Polanco.

      Delete
    3. I agree. When you have Placido Polanco batting cleanup, you know you're not very good.

      Delete
  35. The Mets are hammering the Padres. Dick Enberg already sounds like he would rather be in Paris or Wimbledon.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The Nats pulled Strasburg, and Clippard is pitching himself into trouble.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. So much for letting Strasburg pitch...

      Delete
    2. Boras told Davey to pull Strasburg.

  37. 2 hours in and the Yanks-Red Sox are in the 5th inning. GOOD GOD

  38. Carpenter on Harper: "They're so cute at that age, aren't they?"

  39. AJ Burnett was hitting the rosin bag with his arm and it explodes.

  43. Gonna be a bullpen game for the Giants.

  44. This marks the 4th straight time the WS champ opens on the road. I don't mind LAD/SF opener, but at the very least flip-flop the sites and have Giants title ceremony.

    You have to go back to 2009 Phillies to find last time team opened season at home after winning WS.

    1. I think the Giants asked if the game could be moved and MLB was like "LOL NO".
