Baseball Opening Day with an iPhone

  • The iPhone MLB app is fantastic. I listened to parts of 4 games today, and most of the Dodgers-Padres game. Not bad for $9.99 for all season.
  • I grew up listening to Vin Scully call the Dodgers games. He still sounds great. And there's something about listening to a game on the radio (er, iPhone) compared to TV. I feel lazy watching a 3 hour game on TV. But on the radio there's more multi-tasking involved. Scully does a great job painting a picture.
  • Listened to quite a bit of the Mets-Reds and Yankees-Orioles, too. Funny thing was CC Sabathia, the $161 million man, get rocked by the Orioles. They were hitting him. He was walking batters. It was ugly. On the otherhand, the Mets Santana pitched a gem against the Reds.
  • Oh, the market? Again, the late day surge has to be considered a bullish sign.
