It used to just be on the video screen until they made it "live" down the left field line. The funniest part of the whole thing is that they "start" the race in some location in downtown Dallas or Ft Worth. They show these dots on the video screen running around like that with cars whizzing by probably wondering WTF is going on.
Padres had a great win yesterday. Since no one else cares about the Padres (aside from IX), I feel the need to boost them in here.

Yanks GM: Mets taxed Pedro Feliciano
By Mike Mazzeo
Special to ESPNNewYork.com
NEW YORK -- New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was forthright when asked about the New York Mets' usage of left-handed specialist Pedro Feliciano last season, calling it "abusive."
Feliciano (left rotator cuff strain) is currently on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 22. He is scheduled to begin throwing Wednesday. And depending how that goes, the Yankees will then determine how they want to proceed moving forward. He will need to complete a throwing program before he returns.
Feliciano led the majors in appearances the past three seasons, and in 2010, he became just the fifth pitcher in MLB history to make 90 or more appearances.
"He was abused," Cashman said. "It's a thin market when you're looking for lefties, and he's one of the better ones out there. But you don't typically go after a guy who's been used like that.
"The use pattern was abusive."
Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen says he is not an abuser.
Warthen said Feliciano's setting franchise records for appearances three straight years (86, 88 and 92 games) was done willingly by the southpaw.
Warthen said about the left-hander's heavy workload: "[The Yankees] didn't know that when they signed him? ... He volunteered for the baseball every day. He was asked whether he was able to pitch. He said 'yes' every day -- every day -- and wanted to pitch more than we even pitched him."
Talk about your douchebag Yankee's arrogance. The current GM bitching about how the free agent they signed was overused in the past.
Maybe they should just call the Rangers now and ask them to put CJ Wilson on a pitch count. Better save that arm for the huge contract he'll get from them.
The Red Sox rotation is comically bad.
The Orioles starters have an ERA of 0.00.
Their bullpen has an ERA of 6.00.
Mike Gonzalez has an ERA of 27.00.

Just finished watching the Rangers game. Man, I love beating the Red Sox, especially whipping their asses like we did tonight.
Lackey - total failure
Lester - above average
Beckett - above average
Matsuzaka - bust
Bucholz - above average
Funny how the Orioles, Yankees, and even the Blue Jays are outpitching the Red Sox. I can't believe I pimped that rotation as better than NYY's.
Lackey sucked all last year too
Rangers bullied the Red Sox this weekend. SWEEP
Not the best start for the Sox.
Then again, its still April. ix is convinced that they're done for
