    Yeah, you get to pick which commentary feed you get which is a life-saver with some of the hugely biased home commentators. But yeah it's probably not neccesary unless you use your phone/tablet to watch games.

    Yeah I picked it up and watched Tigers v Royals last night. Amazingly good service for that price.

    So many amazing games today. Weaver with the no-no, Halladay giving up more than 8 runs for the first time since 2009 in a crazy Braves win, Cargo smashing Kershaw for 2 HR's (only the second time a player has put Kershaw away twice in a game). Awesome day of baseballl which makes up for the ****ty day of basketball.

    Weaver is a douche but he's awesomeness as a pitcher.

    Great storylines from yesterday. You had the Orioles winning over the Red Sox in 17 with the DH, Chris Davis, pitching the last two innings and getting the win (he also went 0-8 at the plate!). Then you had Hamels plunking Bryce Harper and admitting afterwards that he did it on purpose. Lol. Canít say I blame him, but that will get him a fine/suspension.

    And oh yeah, Pujols finally hit a HR. Incidently, Pujols has the same number of home runs as Chris Davis has wins.

    Breaking News: Josh Hamilton is good at baseball. 3 HR's tonight so far (with 1 double), 14 total bases, 6 RBI.

    Did I say 3 HR's and 14 total bases? Beg your pardon. I meant 4 HR's and 18 total bases (which is the new AL record).

    Just the 16th four-homer game in MLB history (in comparison, there have been 21 perfect games in history).

    Only needs a single to tie the MLB bases record as well, if he gets another AB.

    Carlos Beltran obviously looking to replicate Hamilton's work. 2 HRs, 6 RBIs through 3 innings in Phoenix. Pretty handy replacement for Pujols he's turned out to be.

    Josh Hamilton is destroying baseball right now.

    - 8 homers in last 5 games. 9 in last 6 games!
    -One of two players in history to have 18 HRs in his team's first 34 games.
    -Batting .405, 18 HRs, 41 RBI. Triple Crown leader.

    As locked in as he is, there is an argument to be made that he's having the greatest offensive month in the history of the game.

    Ah, the old walk-off grand slam trick huh? So I guess that's why Joey Votto has the longest guaranteed contract in MLB history. Kinda disappointing there seemed to be only a few thousand people there though.

    I'm very appreciative of the 30 fantasy points he got me today as well. Nearly makes up for how rubbish almost everyone else in my team is.

    Jared Weaver is an awesome pitcher. He’s also one amped up dude who doesn’t react kindly to being roughed up. Video from yesterday’s Rangers/Angels game where Weaver got hammered:

    He’s not in a good mood after giving up a 3rd inning grand slam to Cruz

    He sings along to “Hit the road Jack” being played on the PA as he exits

    Well, my Rangers have played extremely mediocre baseball for the past month. The offense has gone cold, two starting pitchers are on the DL and the rest are inconsistent at best. Even the defense has sucked. The great start we had, combined with the Angelís slow one, still gives us the biggest division lead in baseball. I still think the team is the most talented in baseball and hopefully this is just an extended rough patch.

    In other news, Mike Trout of the Angels is a freaking stud. I think he's a better long term prospect than Bryce Harper. So jealous the Angels drafted him.

    They took him in the late first round as well because people were scared that he was just torching the Jersey leagues because the Jersey leagues stink. My favourite part about him is his defence, he's amazing to watch.
