- 20-0, holy shit.

- the yankees have already won the series with oakland so i'm not too worried about being down today. they'll probably strike once they get to the oakland bullpen....which should be their target since they should know that braden is on my fantasy team

- of all the natinals games to be blacked out, today is the one i am truly angered over.

Joel Hanrahan sucks :lol The Nats definitely swindled the Pirates in that trade.

This game is alright (Nats v Rockies). The make up of the nats lineup is rough. It's going to be a tough game getting runs. Livan is making some really nice pitches, aside from the Olivio homer.

my god, OBP Jesus needs to be reminded that in baseball you are supposed to hit the spherical object thrown at you with the cylindrical club they provide for you.

OBP Jesus will hit when we are no longer sinners.

This will be in about 2 weeks, when the weather is warm and the rust is gone in most/all batters.

Uhh... the A's bullpen is really good.

CC has a history of sucking out in Oakland. It's a weird anamoly.
He's from Vallejo and grew up an A's fan, so he's reminded of what a sellout he is for taking the big Yankee $s.

I'm listening to the radio broadcast now--he's only thrown 61 through five. I should really get down to the park, I keep putting it off.

I should know! I've got three A's starters on my fantasy team and they're handling a bulk of the productivity, giving me like 6 innings/start. Someone has to be closing it out.

Bryce Harper's makeup via BP:
Klaw talked about that in the chat today. Said that it could be people being contrarians, or an overreaction. Besides, dude's 17. In another question, someone asked him if Harper re-enters the 2011 draft, whether he takes Rendon or Harper: he's still taking Rendon.

This Livan Hernandez vs. Ubaldo Jimenez game is as good as advertised, the only two runs are off Livo on solo homers and only four hits have been allowed by each pitcher. Jimenez's pitch count is up, so hopefully they take him out of a game soon and give us a chance to score some runs.

So is Livan gone in anyone's league yet? :lol

PS3 app video quality is =\

Is there some way to force higher quality cause it's really bad. It's only pulling 120kBps, so it's not like I'm bandwidth starved.

Still looks good to me, not as good as PC though. I don't see any quality options though.

Probably going to stick to Boxee and the Browser though.

Yeah...it's not good at all. Maybe comparable to the second lowest (middle) quality setting on PC. And it's not just the WAS/COL game, I went back into the archives and it's the same. Gonna be a shame if their auto-speed-sensing tech buries this.

Trying out MLB.tv on my PS3 right now. Looks pretty f'n good to me. Not quite as good as when my MBP is hooked up to the tv, but I'm not complaining.

Second lowest? Mine looks a lot better than that.

I dunno, there's a lot of macroblocking in my image. Close-ups obviously don't look that bad, but it's just a low-quality image.

It's nowhere near as good as satellite, and compared to non-NexDef feeds (I can't get any of the W7 workarounds to work), it's not as good as the best feed I can get in a browser, so I just said the middle quality.

Yeah I agree with you that its not as good as on the PC.

Dallas Braden on A-roid:

"It's a shame because that guy is a tremendous talent... and for him to not understand the baseball etiquette of running across that pitchers mound is right next to terrible and inexcusable. You know, I'm not a speck on his radar and that's fine, but he will know I was out there and he will know to not do that again, because there will be repercussions if that happens again."




A-roid is gonna get fucked up.

The main difference to me between streaming on my laptop to the TV and the PS3 is the color and the overall resolution doesn't seem quite as good on the PS3. It runs really smoothly though and I haven't noticed any hiccups yet. I've been connecting my laptop up to my big screen to watch a lot of MLB.tv games and this is a perfect solution-- I'll take the slightly lower quality in order to free up my laptop.

This game is proof that without Zimmerman or Willingham in the lineup, the Nats offense blows. Normally I'd include Dunn in that assessment as well but he's been slumping hardcore. Yes, it was versus Ubaldo, but it would hardly be unreasonable for us to score two runs against him...

You'll always be in the game every fifth day, though. Whenever Livan is pitching, natch.

The last triple play by the Yankees before today involved Bobby Cox (3B). That was a looonnngg time ago.

And who cares if Harper is douchebag, everyday I pray that he falls to the Blue Jays pick but really I know that would never happen with the Royals and Mets in front of us.

Weird. SNY used the straight home-to-the-mound camera angle for 4 pitches. Now it's the normal offset view.
SNY been using that new slow motion feature alot lately.

Another difference on PS3 it's behind by at least a half inning compared to watching in HD on computer. Yikes.

You're joking right?



Yeah I'll use MLB.TV on the tv only because I'm using Windows 7 and they're too stupid to make it compatible with the HD feeds.

Braden
A-rod


Braden is probably half his size but he would kick A-rod's ass. If A-rod doesn't know who Braden is, perhaps he should read this.

With few male role models and some difficult emotions to deal with, Braden injured another boy badly in a fight, hospitalizing him. He remains deeply sorry for that.

"It was definitely my fault," Braden said. "It had nothing to do with my upbringing, but I had a lot of issues with anger. I didn't know how to channel it. It was just going to take one thing, and a guy said the wrong thing and I snapped."
Braden grew up in Stockton, which is one of the shittiest cities in the US, surrounded by drugs and gangs.
He slept in his truck so he could pitch at American River College in Sacramento.
This year he's pitching with permanent loss of feeling in half of his left foot.
