5 shutouts on Opening Day? In 14 games.
That must be come sort of record, right?
Possibly even a record for a normal day of baseball?
Someone smarter than me (everyone!) can probably figure out an easy way to check it.
What could possibly go wrong?Rasputin said:Am I totally off base in suggesting that there should be your rule that anyone that gets hit in the head with a pitch should be replaced?
I have to believe that pitchers aren't going to be willing to plink people in the head. And I think I'd be willing to live with a rule that gives the imp the discretion to toss the pitcher at the slightest hint that someone was hitting folks in the head intentionally.Lowrielicious said:What could possibly go wrong?
Should we walk Stanton semi-intentionally 4 times today, or should we just ping him in the head first at bat so he has to be replaced by Ichiro Suzuki?
Small nit. Those are PA's, not AB's.dynomite said:1) AJ Pollock sitting in Arizona. Anyone have any idea why?
2) Wonder if this will become a trend: Giancarlo Stanton has 3 BBs in his first 3 ABs tonight against the Braves, and at least the 3rd one was on 4 pitches (with none of them particularly close). Would be a shame for the sport generally if this kid doesn't see pitches, but with Morse behind him I can sort of understand why.
3) Healthy CarGo and Tulo can still crush baseballs and make the Rockies look incredible. When both of them are hurt in July, though, this Rockies lineup will look considerably less imposing.
Edit: Damn on Segura. I just tuned into Rockies/Brewers and Segura is on 1st with Gennett at bat, so luckily I don't think it's serious.
For a second I was like "Damn, that's an immaculate inning plus"soxhop411 said:Holy shit Lawrie

Brett Lawrie tonight (12 pitches, 4 strikeouts)
No day off in Seattle.semsox said:Would this be an appropriate place to vent about the fact that there is an off-day today. Every year MLB does this, and every year I get inexplicably upset when I remember there's no game the day after "opening day".
Would've been better if the ump had rubbed his head too.DrewDawg said:
This is all kinds of awesome. How do I bookmark that?
