    Well, he didn't start this season off with a shut out and a home run so I'm pulling him from the running.

    But, yes, it is fun to "be in first" for over a week and not worry about anyone overtaking us. Although you have to feel for Arizona. It's brutal to be absolutely last in the league.

    (But seriously, I was pleased with the Dodgers performance in Australia, even if there were some signs for concern. That Dee Gordon was not only not a sign for concern, but a real highlight, brings me great joy.)

    What's with Yasiel Puig pretending like his back hurt and wincing after every swing and miss at the plate?

    had a little bit of this vibe going for him

    If I was Scherzer I would be pretty upset with myself for not taking the contract offer he declined.

    The worst part about the summer is baseball. I fucking hate spring training. Baseball sucks so bad. hopefully they just fucking get rid of refs and just have instant replay for everything. Should speed up the game to where its actually watchable.

    btw, I looked up the average times of game for baseball vs. football today after always hearing that baseball is too slow, and found out that the average NFL game (~3:10) is about 10 minutes longer than the average MLB game (~3:00). At least according to the most recent internet data I could find. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I found that quite interesting, though. You never hear about how football is too slow.

    Baseball is 2h59min avg.... it doesnt feel too long for me, I look forward to the new instant replay system this year, it already saved the Yankees a game this spring training.

    It's just a matter of game speed. Football is longer but it's OK because there is a play every 35 seconds or less and it's fast action. However baseball is slower paced lets go to the game and miss a inning due to the beer and peanut lines and that is OK. And if you are watching it on TV you an skip 10 mins or so and not feel like you missed anything during the baseball game, but you miss that much in football but you might as well not bother with the rest of the game. Not saying it's right but that is just how it is perceived.

    Yeah, I get what the perception is and how the in-game speeds are different. I just think it's funny, considering baseball games are actually shorter and I never hear anybody complaining that NFL games are too long.

    Baseball has never seemed "too slow" or "too long" to me, and I always hear people complain about it.

    David Hernandez most likely needs TJ surgery. It's going to be a long season for Dbacks fans.

    Baseball is the most deliberate, and least timebound of our major sports. For me, the pace is one of the game's great pleasures -- the way that tension can build matchup by matchup and pitch by pitch. There are a million individual moments in a team sport, and has never stopped fascinating me. However, having suffered through eight million Yankees/Sox, Yankees/Rays, or Sox/Rays games over the last decade, I absolutely maintain that there are some aspects of baseball that need to be speed up, and instant replay will almost certainly not help.

    The biggest offenders are the pitchers who get off of the mound between every pitch, and the batters who feel the need to readjust every piece of equipment they own between each pitch. There is no good reason that Clay Buchholz or CC Sabathia should be allowed to take thirty seconds to walk around the mound between each pitch. MLB should write a rule where if the bases are empty, the pitcher has twelve seconds to deliver a pitch to the plate before the umpire calls a ball. Wait, what's that, there's already is exactly such a rule? Oh, then maybe someone should start actually enforcing it.

    Angels and Mike Trout agree on a 6 year 144.5 million extension. Finally the Angels do something right with a big contract.

    Trout homers off King Felix. Pujols provides a double. I hope to see a lot of this.

    the guy that got Albert Pujols' 500th home run last night in Washington DC is an Angel fan from Pomona. And the guy who caught his 499th HR earlier that game was another Angel fan from Orange County. Crazy odds, huh?
