So is that enough runs to seal this win?

I sure hope so.

Swanson's Fastball velocity seems a couple MPH off today.

Does anyone else subscribe to MLB tv? It's a pretty good service, better I'd say than the NHL equivalent although I haven't bought that in years so maybe it's better now.

My only complaint with MLB tv right now is that they show highlight clips in place of the commercial breaks. Shouldn't be a big deal but they haven't updated the highlights they show since opening day! I'm particularly annoyed by the corny stuff the commentators say over the highlights that I've now seen hundreds of times each.

-Jordan Walker's first MLB hit
-Anthony Volpe's first MLB hit "He'll be hoping for what, 2000 more of those? Hyuck Hyuck"
-Trout and Ohtani hit back to back home runs
-Aaron Judge's first home run of the season "Can we call that 63? Hyuck hyuck"
-Xander Bogaerts first home run as a Padre "X marks the spot!"
-Trayce Thompson hit 3 home runs in a game "No way! Trayce Thompson STOP IT!" (I find this one the most annoying)

That's it. 6 highlights, all from the first couple days of the season.

A closer who relies on sliders isn’t elite.

What a waste. One of the few outings where Manoah looked half decent this year.

Great. Now the Jays get another reliever with huge velocity stuff. Never seems to end with that O bullpen.

Atkins and Shapiro have created a luxury tax team that can’t win because they just refuse to seriously address their bullpen. Pop, Bass, and Swanson, while improvements, are far from the game changers that the team needs.

Blowing leads to other AL east teams is excruciating to watch. Losing gurriel and Teoscars bats make the bullpen that much more important and they are just average. Won’t be good enough in the long run. Every team in this division has bullpens full of guys with great velocity.
