As an aside, does anyone else agree with me that Gameday has really stepped up its game? Not only are the pictures of the ballpark and player representations beautiful, but the amount of information that it compiles for each player and presents to the user, especially regarding pitchers (e.g., release point, velocity over time, ball movement), is quite impressive.

It's incredible. Within a few years I'm basically expecting it to play out like a video game.

No question, Willton. And, depending on the game, there are even built-in video replays of the key hits available not quite immediately, but almost.

I guess I should be watching Game Day instead of the NCAA Championship Game. 22-19 at the half, what a snoozer.

Nice to see Charlie Morton with a quality start, but 5 walks against only 2 strikeouts just ain't gonna cut it long term.

wowow Meek epic fail again. Im starting to think he might have just had a lucky season last year. His location is way off and it seems he has lost some velocity on his fastball.

Meek is really pissing me off to start the season. Think someone is still a little bitter about not being named closer?

And Cedeno shows his Gold Glove skills. Ugh. They should be able to give an error on a double play ball.

Meek has been atrocious but what's even worse if that in the midst of his meltdowns we also set up runs with errors (Overbay) and throwing to the wrong base (Jones).

You can also add Cedeno not being able to turn yet another DP to that list with Crotta now pitching.

Baby steps. Undoubtedly Charlie needs to reverse his K:BB ratio, but last night's 15GB:3FB ratio is very encouraging, especially considering how he hemorrhaged home runs last season.

A couple of the walks also came in one inning in which the umpire was calling nothing on the inside corner which Morton was working the entire game. Not blaming the umpire, just pointing that out.

Not excusing the walks, but it didn't look as bad as the line.

Good point, Shark, but I liked the home plate umpire. He called a lot of strikes on the inside corner. Umpires used to rarely call that pitch a strike.

As a general aside, I am really impressed at how good the umpiring has been so far this year. I have to say, watching umpires make literally hundreds of calls, many on extremely close plays, makes me appreciate how good these umpires can be.

The officiating in the NFL last season was just horrible. In terms of the two sports, the officiating in baseball is far ahead of that in football. The NFL really needs to switch to full-time officials.
