Not sure that I like it, but I can't say that I blame them.

They showed a graphic on the CBS Evening News and the netting/screen goes out quite a way.

In Lakeland a few years ago for a ST game with the Nats and Tigers - IIRC, it extended all the way down both foul lines, and it stayed up for the entire game.

It looked like it would only be between the dugouts (for the whole game).

That's not much of an extension then...

Last year Asdrubal yelled at the Nats bench after he hit a double. Never found out what that was about.

So there must have been some hard feelings. Don't get it, his kid hung around the clubhouse and he seemed quite happy.

Not sure what's not to like. It's needed.

I pay hyper attention and those seats behind the dugout make me nervous. People just don't pay enough attention these days and some wouldn't have the reaction instincts to survive or catch a ball anyway.

One thing I hate about going to a game, to young people, it's some sort of social gathering. Anytime a ball or bat rockets into the stands, it hits a 20 something person in the face because they are nose in their phones taking selfies or something stupid.

I only check my phone to see stat updates, and usually only between innings.

Mark Reynolds to the Rox. He's going to freaking mash. Probably a platoon or moves Paulson to the OF, which means the Rox will be looking to move one of their OFs.

Giants spend  $130/6 for cueto.  I guess they missed Barry Zito's contract.

So Chase Utley is gonna be LA's second baseman going into the season with Micah Johnson as the potential guy of the future? Huh. I dunno why they'd trade Peraza.
