Leadoff triple followed by 3 Ks. They're determined to not score a run this season.

Slugfest.

Reminded of the Dodgers losing both of their games last year with 0 runs to start the season, ended up winning 92 games. We're not the Dodgers though.

If, for no reason at all, you're wondering what the record for scoreless innings to begin a season might be...it's 30. The Padres went 3 1/3 games without scoring a run, and then scored 29 runs in their next 15 innings.

7 Ks in 10 ABs. Boyd has only had to throw 36 pitches through 3 IP to do it.

Apparently he is now Randy Johnson.

Shoemaker has a chance to be pretty useful, if he can remain healthy. "Useful", in this context, means "a Blue Jay for four months before being traded for someone's 9th-best prospect", naturally.

Yeah Shoemaker was a good pickup. I think Richard is going to be a disaster though... we'll find out soon enough.

Beyond SJW being more deep-dark-depths-of-Reddit fare, I don't think that you have to care about social justice to believe that you probably aren't serving the organization by being a douche to young players.

No doubt.

But bringing him up in every other post on topics that have nothing to do with Norris or morale is sort of reaching, and I just wanted to tease him about it :)

Teoscar leads the league in catches of the wall. Catches against the wall, not so much.

Has Teoscar ever made the catch on a play that would be considered difficult?

So is this strike zone graphic here to stay or are they just trying it out? I can see it getting annoying

Espn has been using a similar graphic for years, I think.

First win of the season! WOOOOOOOOOO!!

Feels good man...

Shoemaker with a gem of a game. Love the Galvis pickup. Pillar can suck it! Trade him already. Alford is more than capable of a replacement. Grichuk can play CF as well. Loving this youth and speed. Sanchez pitching tomorrow. Let's get win number 2!
