The new broadcast team sucks big time.

In that same thread, I discovered that the MLB app radio audio is behind the picture on DirecTv, which is key.

Now if I can figure out how to get the MLB app audio from my phone to my soundbar.

"That's a five run ninth for the Indians. Changed the game completely!"

Yeah. No fucking shit.

Broadcast team is certainly more corporate than what we have had over the years.

50-112.

I don't care what happens here. Letting Trout even get to the plate here is failure. Time to give someone else a whirl at closer.

He sucks.

Trout steals a HR, Marte steals a 2B, might as well go to bed.

Rougned Odor's lineout was hit 110.8 MPH... The hardest ball he's hit all year. Bad luck.

Really glad I went to bed instead of watching that shit. Get Dyson the fuck out of that role.

Holy crap. You think it would be safe to go ahead and get some sleep with a 5-0 lead...but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Dyson needs to walk back to Texas via Hawaii.

Is Profar a zero tool player at this point? Can't hit, no power, horrible baserunner, Julio Borbon arm, can really only play 2B.

So our manager believes in Dario Alvarez after putting 2 on with 1 out, but pulls Yu in the same situation?

Ok. Whatever.

Doug Brocail is a spare. And Bannister should be ashamed for giving in to this crap.

If his (Yu's) last name was Dyson that crap would have never happened.

Or Hamels.

Yu didn't do himself any favors last night, but that was ridiculous. The guy started opening day two weeks ago but you trust hippie bullpen guy with the game on the line more than him.

If Yu goes out and tears through the lineup like Kleenex by doing something other than the gameplan maybe the gameplan sucked.

I really didn't think we had much of a shot of resigning him, but stuff like that makes me believe there is no way he sticks around here.

Jeff Bannister has been baffling this year.

Well regardless of what happens Papa Johns is 50% off so you can get diarrhea in a cost effective manner.

No idea why he left Kela out there when he had already thrown that many pitches.

This team desperately needs a Michael Young type who just gets base hits. The lineup top to bottom is all or nothing guys and it's showing. 5 HRs and 16 Ks last night, pathetic.

Hamels out for 2 months. Help us Adrian Beltre, you're our only hope!

To quote the late great John McKay... when asked "What do you think of your teams execution?"...I'm in favor of it.
