Do networks intentionally delay the video portion of the broadcast by a half second or so to allow the announcing of live play to seem more accurate and in real time? 
 
This theory does NOT apply to anything Harold Reynolds says.

Why the ASG blows? in the old days this would be Felix vs. Kershaw all night against all the starters and it would be great.
Starters went 3 innings in the old days. Position players often played whole game, or most of it.

There you go Matheney you stupid fuck. Start your trademarked Special Cardinal Adam Wainwright and not Kershaw. I hope you lose because of that you arrogant Special Cardinal prick.

Stupid moron.

Unless the starter is getting lit up, the starter should have to go through the whole lineup once.  What's the big deal about being the starter if you are only going to face 3 or 4 batters?

I'm at the point where any words that come out of Harold Reynold's mouth, no matter what they are, just make me incredibly angry.

Did Darvish throw an eephus pitch? Radio broadcast said Darvish threw a 56 mph curveball, yet it was thrown with strange spin and a four-seam grip.
 
Apparently Darvish said before the game he would show a new pitch tonight.

I just looked at Tulo's splits this year. Roughly hitting .400, .500 OBP at Coors; .260, .360 OBP on the road. OPS drops from 1.200 to 0.800. 
 
Get it together Harold

Harold Reynolds sounds like a seventh grader trying to do an oral report on the Teapot Dome scandal and the only research he did was checking out Wikipedia for ten minutes two days ago.

Crazy development here at the ASG. Somehow somebody managed to get up on the CF video board between innings and hang a big banner that says "LOVE WATER NOT OIL". Been up for a good 5-10 minutes which is 4-9 minutes longer than you would expect it to survive.

Coming up next half inning is a round table discussion about how Derek Jeter's shit, somehow, doesn't stink.

Reynolds just used rhetoric for Jeter generally reserved for people who end wars or free a people from bondage.
