Bingo.  Given that Sportscenter is essentially a highlight show and with more and more people attached to their smart phones they are getting their highlights, in real time, delivered through social media, team apps etc... Why wait until the next day?  To your point of Sportscenter being reformatted, I believe their answer is coming in the form of shows like Late Night with SVP.  I am not sure how effective it is, I cut cable and do not have ESPN and I have to say I don't miss it.    

Cheers!

There are valid reasons to hate someone, that he coaches your rival team isn't one of them.

Good point, MB.  Something that is unfortunately forgotten among some.

Coming in late to the party - thanks for the update.  I remember the other names mentioned and figured they were all related.  Man, this dude works hard keeping all of this up.

I missed most of this game as I was at the Clippers home opener, sadly the final scores were almost identical.  It seems as if getting runners on hasn't been an issue, its the timely hits to get them across the plate that are badly needed.  Early deficits don't exactly help either.  Here's to a better weekend against the Tigers

Most definitely.  I live on Whittier...  My wife and I took another couple there last weekend for their first time and we hung out for three hours.  If we didn't order every tapa on the menu we certainly came close.  German Village is special for sure, I don't anticipate moving anytime soon..    

Comment 13 Apr 2017

I live in German Village deathly close to Barcelona and we frequent far too often.  I'd recommend checking it out if you haven't already.

UPDATE: PS4 does not offer FoxSportsGo to DL, which I kind of expected. So, I fired up the Roku and was able to DL FSG, however when I logged in using my PSVue credentials Sports Time Ohio is not offered, but every other Fox Sports Ohio channel is. I am not sure if it's blacked out because of where I am loggin in demographically speaking (Columbus). A bummer for sure because I do prefer PSV to SlingTV. 

Comment 12 Apr 2017

I have a PS4. I will explore my options there this evening.  I was given a Roku device when I first signed on with SlingTv. I'll check that out as well.  Thanks for the heads up! 

Comment 12 Apr 2017

Interesting.. I assume FoxSportsGo is mobile/tablet/PC only? I really want to watch the Tribe on my TV and steer clear of alternative devices for baseball.

Comment 12 Apr 2017

I fully agree with one exception no Sports Time Ohio.... So, during baseball season I rock Sling TV and then bounce back over to PSVue during the offseason. 

Comment 05 Apr 2017

Absolutely.  The one I mostly listen to is Fantasy Baseball Today, because it is daily and I can catch up whenever.  Obviously, there are so many ways to play fantasy baseball and I feel they do a good job of discussing things a broad sense to provide insight to everyone.  I would be interested to know what you think and if you or anyone else tabs into other podcasts let me know. 

Cheers!

I came here to echo the same sentiment.  I play in a H2H points league where pitching is at a premium, so its important to get an Ace or two, but its also important not to get too wrapped up in pitching that you lose sight of the crucial bats - those guys who go out and take the field 5-6x a week.  I also like to keep a roster spot open for pitchers going twice in a week.  Play the waiver, keep an eye out for the up and coming stud getting the call up.  There are a few good podcasts out there that discuss baseball in a fantasy context which can provide some good information. 

Cheers!

My wife saw me transform into a different person during the playoffs last year.. Should we all be lucky enough to see another playoff run the same thing will happen this year, but at least she can appropriately set expectations.  She is a huge baseball fan herself, albeit Reds, so she understands.

Cheers!

Comment 04 Apr 2017

This is something I kept saying about the team last year.. "What a great group of guys" "Man, I just love this team/these guys."  Guys like Kip and Frankie who can truly bring baseball back to much larger audiences.  And I believe the Indians have the best managers in baseball and I cant help but think these guys absorb this exuberance from Tito.    

Comment 04 Apr 2017

As an ardent baseball fan I get excited for any season.  However, I'd be lying if I said that this season was met with the same anticipation as many others.  Many of the commentary last night suggested that this team is better than last years and it would certainly seem so.  Stay healthy, stay focused and its a marathon not a sprint.  Lets gooooooooo

Reminds me of a conversation between Stringer Bell and D'Angelo "Aint no new package. Just put that same (stuff) out in a different colored cap is all.."

Comment 24 Mar 2017

Ah, man. For some odd reason this came up over the weekend while talking with friends and no one seemed to remember the McDonalds pizzas.. I used to rock the McPizza's as kid.. They do look better than I remember..   

Comment 23 Mar 2017

I had a conversation with a friend over the weekend and to the question you posed is the point we settled on.. I am not too sure who can keep up with the Cavs in a 7 game series. They are definitely tinkering a bit now and I feel the D will turn up come playoff time.
