Jason Vargas is so terrible. Mets should have been in on Gio. Brewers signed him for basically nothing.

I think I'll go to the game Friday too. 3 games in 4 days I have an addiction.

Giants won today. To my shock Bochy let Buster catch today so I got to see him sitting behind home! I feel blessed. Pablo crushed another dong and Posey smashed a double. 4-0 final score. Left the Dome with an even bigger grin than last night

Era hates him because he's supposedly homophobic. Always check era before passing judgment on how good a dude anyone is.
I don't like siding with those people but this is his quote on Billy Bean.

“I disagree with his lifestyle. I do disagree with the fact that Billy is a homosexual. That doesn’t mean I can’t still invest in him and get to know him. I don’t think the fact that someone is a homosexual should completely shut the door on investing in them in a relational aspect. Getting to know him. That, I would say, you can still accept them but I do disagree with the lifestyle, 100 percent.”

I mean that's pretty blatant.

Well, he's Christian. You can disagree with a lifestyle (yes, I understand that it's more than JUST a lifestyle), without hating someone for it. He clearly doesn't hate gay people because they're gay.

Most religious people would disagree with a gay lifestyle.

Who cares honestly.

The only thing of relevance is “is he doing anything to harm in anyway that gay man”.

If the answer is yes, then fuck him. If the answer is no, ok move on to something important.

Thoughts and feelings are irrelevant. Actions matter.

Oh yeah I know all of that and agree. I think he's incredibly misguided but as musky said, he's not hurting anybody. Having opinions on a matter does not make someone a monster.

That being said though if people choose not to fuck with him over those statements, I don't hold that against them either.

I'm happy for him. He's gonna be a beast just like his pops.

But let's talk about these Orioles and their 2nd straight win! BECAUSE HOPE IS ALL I HAVE!
Chris Davis batting 300 over the past week. Would love to see him finish the year around 250 after all the April shenanigans

Zack Greinke hits for the cycle. That’s amazing

With Murphy in the lineup our run production has spiked a bit, just need the pitching to come around a little.

In another fantasy league I have Juan Soto and Eddie Rosario so go Nats and Twins!

Familia is such a schmuck. He's lucky he got bailed out.

If you told me that given the pitching would be this fucking terrible (deGrom and Syndergaard included), I'd have signed up for 15-14 in April. If deGrom/Syndergaard/Familia ever all get right (I think Wheeler is already on that road; the line wasn't great his last start, but it was really just one early blowup inning after which he looked great) this is a scary team.

THOR DROPS THE HAMMER. CG shutout and solo dong to single handedly win a 1-0 game. Now hopefully this is the new normal after his terrible start.

Years after the fact, Chase Utley is still a douchebag.


What a creep and dirty player.
Utley is and always was a shitbag.

Kyle Hendricks just threw a complete game shutout on only 81 pitches against the red birds. I can't remember the last time I saw a CGSO under 90 pitches. Hell I don't think pitch count was a thing the last time it happened.

Really enjoying the season so far, great first month.
ABSOLUTELY! I just want to take this opportunity to praise the team with the best record in all of baseball. Being able to say that of the Twins close to 1/5 of the way through even, is such a nice feelings.



(And a little outdated "Dab" nod to my Panthers for good luck this upcoming season!) :p

Pablo Sandoval just pitched another relief inning. Hit batter, fly out to centre then a DP. Professional ERA of 0 and a HOF relief pitcher

This may be controversial, but I don't think the Mess' malaise is Mickey Callaway's fault.

He's not great, mind, but he's no worse than Terrible Terry Collins who, despite being awful and also incompetent, got to manage the Mess for six years.

It's just the Mess are too old, too injury prone, and saddled with too much baggage. I think they'll do okay this year, but are far from contenders.

I knew yesterday's Rox game would get postponed and I am shocked they are playing right now. Just had an inside-the-parker go for the Rox due to outfielder slipping. There are minor mixed snow flurries mixed in with slight showers going on all over town, all day.

Colorado weather is weird, man.

WOW Nolan just CRUSHED a ball that should have been his second homer of the day and it's called foul. Radio guys are pissed, people tweeting from the press box are shocked. Looked like a HR to me. Guess they didn't have a great camera angle for the review. Go figure

Can’t believe I survived Freak Week from Justin Turner on Deep’s team. I got lucky as hell today. Insanely close matchup, Deep. At different points today the score shifted from 4-5 in your favor to 8-2 my favor and everything in between. Each at bat was fluidly affecting the score all day, I was glued to my mlb.tv app following everything. Good stuff
