Shadows are tough today
I don’t know how well it comes through the television, but the shadows at Miller Park today are absolutely brutal for the hitters. Rich Harden just struck out the side, and it appears that the first-inning Brewers run could be a big one. These mid-afternoon start times are a huge advantage to the pitchers.
One of my colleagues just told me that the lighting conditions are so tough, it’s messing up the pitch f/x feature on MLB.com’s Gameday application. They’ve switched to manual input.
