    I didn't realize that was the case until I looked up at my screen at MLBN and Quick Pitch was already on a couple hours ago.

    I woulda guessed Sandoval or Belt had done it, but looks like Panda’s best year was 90 RBIs and Belt’s was 82.

    Found this:

    Lively, an app from Tiny Whale, lets you turnyour all-too-locked-up Live Photos into GIFs or videos with control speeds for the GIF, ranging from 0.5x to 2.0x. ... With the launch of the newest iPhones, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, Apple released a new software feature called Live Photos.

    Then I guess you’d need to upload to YouTube or another video hosting site.

    That story looks worse than it reads, IMO, but maybe that's just because I assumed the process was like that before I read it.

    I'm also confused by the agent's quote that arbitration is the last place for player's to fairly negotiate what they're worth. The entire arb system is set up to keep their value down by design. I don't get that. I wish arb would just go away and they'd replace with something closer to the NBA model, but that doesn't seem likely to happen.

    I'm fine with a Thursday-Sunday series with Monday off for a makeup date if one of those gets rained out. Having a day off after one day is just dumb.

    People pay more of a premium for a Yankees/Sox game. Should they take a day off after every single one of those games too?

    I really hate clogging up the thread but you're being stupid.

    there's only one opening day. when they make up a Yankees-Sox game it's still a Yankees-Sox game.

    If a NYY/BOS game gets rained out, it will be rescheduled and still be a NYY/BOS game.

    If Opening Day gets rained out and has to be rescheduled for a month (or week) later, it is no longer the Opening Day game.

    That's the point. If you've never been to an Opening Day, it's not just pregame festivities. It's a different atmosphere at a baseball stadium. It just is, and that's why people pay extra to be part of a sellout crowd for it, and then watch on TV for a game with less than 50% capacity with tickets at half the price two days later in a lot of cities.

    A Saturday night game is much different than a Tuesday afternoon makeup. Should people that buy a Saturday ticket get refunded if their makeup date isn't a Saturday night game?

    I'm more concerned with late season scheduling issues bc an off day was burned on day 2 than I am about pre-game festivities for day 1.

    You realize over half the league is playing today, right? Some play Thursday-Sunday and then leave town. So some Opening Day festivities and atmosphere is so important for some fans but not at all for others?

    The teams playing today are all in domes or better weather climates. They specifically keep the day after "Opening Day" available in case of rainouts, so that they can still do all the pre-game fun stuff ...
