Thread: Opening Day Game Thread: Twins @ White Sox, 3:10 p.m.

    On Replay...

    We have the technology to decifer the exact trajectory of a pitch, including the number of rotations and the degree of movement. Yet, it is not used to improve ball/strike calls. I will never understand the resistance to this. Who is this silent majority that derives so much pleasure from an umpire guessing at borderline pitches?

    The umpires themselves don't want it.

    When I lived in Chicago, we used to call US Cellular Field "The Cuze". Mainly because Joan Cusak was everywhere with US Cellular ads that summer, that and it just sort of had a nice ring to it.

    I can relate... I think visibility right now is 17 inches. I paid money for this window and right now... I'm getting very little value.

    Surprise surprise. I'm sure the auto-workers union wasn't crazy about replacing workers with robots either.

    Steve Stone is the dullest TV announcer of all time. I'm having a difficult time staying awake.

    Although I did just get revived a little when he said Jason Kubel was one of the fastest guys in the Twins organization before he hurt his knee. What??????
