re: Aaron Nola got his first win - TXTigerDad
In the interview of him after the game, he said Coach Mainieri was in attendance today. Good timing on his callup...Phillies 8-1 since break, in the dugout for Hamels' no-hitter, and his first win (at Wrigley Field)....

re: Tiger baseball updates(current and former players) - TXTigerDad
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Matt Clark is engaged to Julia Morales, the cute, redheaded sideline reporter for Astros broadcasts on ROOT Sports. She tweets about him sometimes. I like her, as she seems to be genuine and has good sense of humor, and the broadcasters seem to have a good rapp...

re: Will Harris All-Star Break Dilemma: Baton Rouge or Cincinnati? - TXTigerDad
[]0.93 ERA in 38.2 IP Definitely deserves it[/] He's actually regressed slightly over his last 12 innings. If you look just at his first 26.2 innings, he had only allowed 6 hits and 1 run, with an ERA of 0.34 and average against of .071. Deserving any way you look at it....

re: Since out last title, sec teams in cws - TXTigerDad
[quote]I hope your joking[/quote] Why would you hope I'm joking? It's just an opinion, which is all the polls are. And opinions are often proven wrong. After what's transpired, I don't think LSU was the best college baseball team in the country this year. ...

re: Yankees call up former LSU pitcher Nick Rumbelow - Making ML debut now - TXTigerDad
Should be big crowds at the Juice Box all weekend for the Yanks vs. 1st place Astros (3rd best record in baseball)! Astros' "flex pricing" means ticket prices will be higher than usual and not easy to come by for a reasonable price. Rumbelow's career minor-league stats are outstanding - WHIP le...

re: What's the "Magic Word" Managers/Players use to get Tossed? - TXTigerDad
I ejected Chuck Hiller from an Appalachian League game in 1972 because he said to me, "Well then you're a horse shite umpire." I remember he had a shocked look on his face because I'm sure he didn't think that would get him ejected. 43 years later and with a lot more experience and maturity, I should...

God was probably having a really good day when he said, "I've created a lot of beautiful animals, but I think I'll create the best one yet, one so awesome and beautiful that whenever my people see one they will see how powerful and good I am and how much I love them to give them something like this....

re: Will the Spring Game be Televised? - TXTigerDad
SECN+ is online only, available on computers, tablets, and phones through WatchESPN app, if your TV provider is one of the approved ones. From there you can watch on your TV through direct connection or through various dongles/streaming devices. How many times has this been said, and how many more...

re: I complained to WWL radio about not airing the Saturday baseball game - TXTigerDad
KWKH in Shreveport (1130AM) has been airing the baseball games (at least some, not sure how many). If the weather is right and it's at night, you can often pick up that signal for a long way. Last Friday, I know someone who was listening on that station on the road to H from BR....

re: Is SEC Network+ available on chromecast? - TXTigerDad
I'm running WatchESPN on my Android tablet and throwing it to my TV using Chromecast. But what I'm not clear about is one thing: I can't find a way to throw it to my TV using WatchESPN on my laptop PC running Windows 8. Am I correct in that the app is not able to link to Chromecast if you're runn...

Baseball Live Stats - TXTigerDad
How long is it going to take for someone to fix the live stats? The count is always wrong, it doesn't say who's batting, it doesn't show you a graphic of the bases and which ones are occupied, and when a pitcher makes an error it doesn't show up in the individual stats anywhere. There are good apps ...
