Baseball streams are extremely difficult to find from my experience. Plus they have a high rate of being taken down.

Nice to see Halladay's velocity where it was. He can with with that, but he'll need to locate a lot better.

Phils hit singles, Braves hit homeruns. Watching the Phillies get demolished like this is a nightmare.

Well, Halladay was bad. I don't think the rest of the team has been bad though. They're getting plenty of guys on base and got screwed out of at least one run by the umps.

Yeah, it sucks. It's very difficult for me to see Phillies games. The worst part is that last year, every game I watched (nearly) featured Qualls. It was awful.

This is what happens when a league is really, really strict about controlling streams. MMA and Boxing are the same way; the NFL can be, but overall doesn't seem as bad as the others.

We're lucky the NHL just seems content that people are watching the product in some way, shape, or form.

It's pretty sad when despite being near Philly, I still can't watch when it's on the Comcast Network.

Welp, Phillies actually have the lead tonight 2-0.

Gotta keep MLBTV valuable. If all the streams run rampant, MLBTV buyers will go down and they won't make money anymore.

He should be hitting 2nd. He's been getting on base but doesn't look totally comfortable driving in runs. He is wasted in the 6th spot with Mayberry/Nix/Kratz hitting after him.

I think he could handle hitting 2nd, but I think he's got the power to hit 5th or 6th also. I would keep Rollins where he is too since he's off to a good start.

You'd be batting lefty, lefty, lefty in your 2, 3, 4 spots. Brown & Howard both hit under .200 against lefties last year. Utley barely above. I really like the lineup as it is. I think Rollins is perfect in the 2 spot & Revere perfect in lead off.

I really haven't seen enough of Brown to say he's bad off lefties. Utley when he's hitting is average against them. Howard sucks obviously. The problem I have with the lineup is that Utley is the only guy producing runs. If Lee doesn't pitch spectacular tonight, the Phillies are 0-3.

Brown was on base almost 50% of the time in the series but doesn't score a single run. He just seems better suited for the 2 hole right now. Rollins maybe 5 or Utley 5 and Rollins 3? It's just an idea. I don't like moving guys around who've been good in that spot but when you leave 22 guys stranded through 27 innings, it might be a good idea to switch things.

Hoping that Howard and Young will stop being black holes in the lineup too.

Hopefully when Chooch comes back he'll have a good year at the plate. That would go a long way in helping this offense.

I can guarantee you that will probably never happen again ever in the history of baseball (Phillies opening day is against the Royals, I mean).

I kinda like it. Get sick of seeing the same teams every year.

If there's gonna be inter league play all year then is there really a point in separating the end of year awards by league?

Eh, Howard has always been steaky. He'll go 0 for 15 and then blast 3 HRs in 3 games. He got a hold of one last night to dead center that would have been out in pretty much any other ballpark in the country. I'm not too worried about him.

Brown hasn't exactly proven he should be anything more than a 6 hitter at this point. He wasn't even a lock to make the team going into Spring Training. He'll get a better spot in the order when he earns it (I type this as he just blasts a home run).
