    I do agree MLB blackout is insane. I thought I read in 2016 that it was going away in 2017, but I guess not.

    I also don't understand Arkansas getting Fox Sports Southwest instead of Midwest as their one regional channel.

    But I still honestly am asking if there's another market that doesn't have a regional Fox sports network.

    We can get Fox Sports to watch the game but don't want to listen to the commentator s

    Yeah, there are a few others. The Giants, A's, and Phillies are the ones I can think of. There are some others like Pittsburgh and Colorado that use Root Sports I think.

    Game postponed until July 21. Double header

    Pirates lost Harrison for at least 6 weeks.

    Is the weather to blame or something else?

    They have been crying all day on MLB XM today about the weather. Blamed early season start, blamed teams for not having a roof and finally someone said it's just a crazy spring. Jumped to the next topic right after that. Lol

    Same people will be hollering about global warming in a few months.

    Bryce Harper hit a broken bat HR tonight. Not cracked bat... broken all the way plum in two. How does that happen? I guess when you’re hot, you’re hot. His 8th of the season.

    Whiskey, was there an over/under when the Cardashians would show back up? If so, I may have won that bet.

    Walks came back to bite us tonight. Three walked batters scored, and that’s the difference in winning and losing. Our pitchers struck out 14 batters, allowed only 7 hits, but walked 10.
    Baez hit the ball good all night. Holland showed he’s hittable, and that Hicks guy showed he’s not unhittable. Everything I’ve read about him said he’s a hard throwing strikeout pitcher, but we put the ball in play against him with all three batters.
    Would’ve loved to have gotten the win tonight, but it wasn’t a terrible loss. We had our #5 starter going, and we were in it til the very end. Early start tomorrow if the weather doesn’t screw that up. Lester on the bump, off day Wednesday, then off to Colorado. Lets end the home stand on a good note.

    Just pulled up tomorrow’s weather. If it’s halfway close, there won’t be any baseball played tomorrow.
     
  19. Holland is not where he's going to be. Hicks being hittable, he's 21 pitching in 32-degree weather. He's got more Upside that's not even shown yet. He'll break records trust me. Wainwright is really our number 5 pitcher so things would be even there.
