Tarp Delay: Mariners-Yanks Gamer & Royals-Sox Gamer

Gerbil is back from a short break spent off the grid amongst the trees and forest critters. Fortunately, tarps were needed only once. Unfortunately, it appears they have been needed in the Bronx, but the rain has let up.  Comment away when and if they get this game going, with Jason Vargas pitching for Seattle and Freddy Garcia on the bump for the Bombers.

Royals-Sox just got underway, and since both games are east coasters starting at west-coast times, might as well join them up into one gamer.

Wow. Marco Scutaro single-handedly destroyed the Sox’ scoring chances there. Misses the squeeze sign, getting Reddick caught off third with one out, then thrown out trying to stretch a single. Ick.

Just set up Apple TV (mutual birthday/anniversary present), so my MLB TV subscription is finally on a screen larger than my laptop. Not sure whether I’ll be glad this is the inaugural game for it.

Excellent, Paul. I have a Roku that I sometimes get to watch the games on, but typically I’m third in line to use the thing so its back to the laptop. Last night was one of those rare nights where I had dibs, so of course it was blacked out.

To be honest I care less about the outcome of the game and more about Lester’s nice performance. 9 baserunners in 5.1 is a bit too many, but his stuff looked good (though rusty).

Royals-Red Sox blacked out in the Pacific Northwest, Gerb? Odd.
We got apple TV specifically because of the fact that it has Netflix and MLB TV available for viewing straight on the TV. Roku and the others probably do, too, but if it’s Apple (and I have a reasonable need for it), then that’s what I’m getting.

Red Sox wasn’t blacked out.. M’s in the Bronx was (and is tonight as well) though.. FSNW has exclusivity I guess.
> Netflix and MLB TV
Yep.. same here; I wanted to ditch cable for good. Haven’t regretted it one bit. I’ve used both the Roku and the Apple TV. Both are fantastic.
