Fits with Seidman's thoughts on Lidge's collapse this year.

+1 for later in the day, same reason that I use it as a signal that new content is up (not stuff I read yesterday).

I think that scout means "pretty decent hitter for a catcher, relative to his teamates, as the lineup regulars other than Molina have an average OPS+ of 77." In that case, maybe you'd agree with him?

To me, Fox's broadcasts have almost become unwatchable. McCarver and Buck, pointless graphics, too many quick cuts and extreme close-ups - I really feel robbed, especially when it comes post-season time because Fox is the only game in town. For my money, of the national broadcastrs, I think TBS does a fantastic job.

I bet JG is best friends with Brian Bannister.

Did the long inning where he had to bat twice affect anything?

Turned it on a little late and actually thought it was raining there seeing Billingsley literally drenched through his hat and shirt.

Ned Colletti's affection for Juan Pierre might give Sabean a run for his money.

As far as I know though, they don't disable the ability to switch between games that you're watching as PIP or side by side, so you're still allowed to "flip channels" even if you're not allowed to DVR forward a half inning, which is probably another (albeit small) reason why you're not seeing many ads in that space. I do enjoy the MLB ump school spots though; they kinda, sorta, a little bit remind me of the Tom Emanski video ads, except without a powder blue mesh hat wearing Crime Dog. That's why I've given MLB.tv my full endorsement.

The 7/5 PECOTA update doesn't have Zobrist regressing; his PECOTA card is looking for a 22.7 VORP in the second half. I'm trying hard to get him in my league after he's slumped a bit recently to upgrade my current Guzman/Hardy situation while Reyes (and Beltran and until recently Manny) is out.

The assumption that PED's actually enhance performance is a big part of the problem in the first place, and unfortunately probably can't be verified. Wouldn't it be something though if MLB decided after 2011 that instead of NL and AL, they would have PED-allowed-league and no-PED-league. Then you might have a large enough data set to test whether PEDs are actually performance enhancing, and the impact of PEDs on whether it puts more fans in the seats.
