Why am I watching this? It’s like I’m at a club and someone is playing topgolf in the corner.

Is it just me or does the behind the batter camera angle fucking blow? You can’t see anything! Launch angle!

I wanted to see Vlad hit a really high one and then hit a liner that reached the crowd before the first one came down.

Is Vlad Jr a better hitter than his dad? Definitely more power. I don't know if he's as good a bad ball hitter, although he's good.

The clock and head to head is great when the second guys up and it’s coming down to the wire, but I feel like I didn’t really appreciate late or realize how insane that last round by Vlad Jr. was because it was so much, and so fast, it felt like literally another homer was coming before the last landed. Made for a weird viewing experience compared to the memorable rounds from the past.

This screen layout is a complete mess. Whoever designed it should be fired. WAY too much going on - no way to actually focus on the hitter

Fire the scoreboard operator. How are you not able to count to 30?

And just like that, there’s the positive aspect of the format lol

I can’t believe Joc got those last two out at the end of the round. He looked beyond spent and like his arms weighed hundreds of pounds.
