The players have said they much prefer it to silence, for a few very good reasons.

Also....Eovaldi couldn't get a single swing-and-miss on his 100mph fastball from....Jose Iglesias?

(to be fair....while not a good hitter, he doesn't strike out much)
To be fair, Jose’s quick hands and reflexes are his calling cards

I hope every broadcast I watch this season doesn't have "COVID has changed everything" as a sub-narrative. I get doing it for the first few, but at some point I hope it ceases. We all know what a shit storm we're living through. Couple hours off from it isn't gonna hurt anything.

Aaaah, baseball!

Sorry, I had to put my kid to bed so I'm late to the game. It feels so great to be watching live sports.

Build screens into each seat. Sell Zoom tickets. Profit.
I kind of like this idea, especially if you could somehow tie the artificial crowd noise to real human reaction. I'm now sure how easily this can be done without too much lag, but therev seems to be a big opportunity to do something innovative.

Have a real problem with Pillar wearing #5 on a visceral level but then he popped up the first pitch so maybe it is fitting.
