On the Roku, I just get to stare at the silent blue animation for 2 minutes and ponder the preceding half-inning.
Either one, I don't get any commercials. Of course I live outside the viewing area so that might be the reason why.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
