I like the pitch clock. Think it needs maybe 5 seconds added back to it. Watching minor league ball right now feels spastic.

It'll be interesting to see MLB players have to adjust. They've been so set in their ways. Even the electronic device for pitchers now, d'Arnaud said the Reds were moving at such a pace it threw the Braves off a little bit.

A's announced attendance last night was 3,748. Meaning they sold virtually no single game tickets. That's pretty much their season ticket holders only. 

Still have a winning record

To put it in perspective, three of the four Braves minor league affiliates played in front of larger crowds last night.

Heard a pretty telling stat, Gerrit Cole has an ERA of 6.35 this year. In his 23 starts since MLB cracked down on sticky stuff, he has a 4.50 ERA. This is a guy the Yankees still owe about $250M over 7 years. He had a 4.26 in his final season in Pitt before going to Houston and exploding to a perennial Cy Young guy. Of course we know now that the Astros were looking for every advantage possible. He maintained that dominance into NY until the crackdown.

A's attendance tonight is 2,703. That's the lowest attended game in 42 years. Oakland fans are definitely rebelling after the sell off of the roster. 

Don't blame them. Oakland fans are definitively answering Phil Castellini's “Well, where are you gonna go?" question.

Strikeouts are down 4% in baseball, so batters are putting the ball in play slightly more this season. The trade-off: home runs are down 24% and scoring is down 21%.

Does this make the game more exciting?

Someone needs to give Dansby that memo

Did you see that stat ESPN dropped on him on Sunday? First player since 1913 to strikeout in each of the first 10 games for 3 consecutive seasons. Dansby is just a streaky guy but he's historically slow in April.

No I didn't but that is not surprising.

I will say that, he did have better at bats vs the Dodgers.

Rosario seems to be coming around a bit too so hopefully the off day will do everyone good.

Miguel Cabrera has a shot at history today. He enters with 2,999 hits. He will become just the 7th player in history with 3,000 hits and 500 HR. He'll be just the 3rd to do it with a .300 career average. Hank Aaron and Willie Mays are the only others to hit .300 with 500 HR and 3,000 hits. Miggy is often an afterthought these days but hes definitely one of the greatest hitters we've ever had.
