He Said, She Said – Recaps For 9/22/2016

Apologies for the short recap, but Prof is still out with the plague and I managed to wake up with a pinched nerve in my neck this morning and basically can’t move my head more than an inch.  They say the great ones play hurt.  So I guess I’m only half ok?  I hope you appreciate the musical theme today.


Game 1 – Tigers 9, Twins 2 – This one was a little bit closer than it looked when Detroit opened up for 6 runs in the 9th.

Game 2 – Tigers 4, Twins 2 – Big day for Detroit winning both against Minnesota.  Detroit moves into a half game lead for the last spot in the Wild Card.


Red Sox 5, Orioles 3 – The Orioles continue to disappoint.  Quick, when’s the WORST time to go into a massive slump?


Braves 6, Marlins 3 – That about officially ends it for the Marlins who lose courtesy of a 4 run 3rd inning.

Royals 2, Indians 5 – Carlos Santana broke the tie with a three-run home run in the sixth.


Yankees 0, Rays 2 – The Rays pitching shut out the super hot Yankees offense and it certainly was a team effort with the starter Blake Snell only going 5 innings.

Phillies 8, Mets 9 – Asdrubal Cabrera walked it off with a three-run home run in the bottom of the 11th that only got into extras due to a Jose Reyes two-run home run in the 9th.


Angels 2, Astros 0 – Albert Pujols hit a two-run homer in the first and that was all the excitement in this ball game.


Pirates 1, Brewers 3 – Scooter Gennett and Chris Carter scored all the runs the Brewers needed with two-run and solo homers.

Rockies 4, Dodgers 7 – Yasmani Grandal hit a pair of home runs, including a grand slam in the 7th to put the Dodgers up for good.


Giants 2, Padres 1 – Jeff Samardzija pitched 7 scoreless innings leading the Giants to a narrow victory over the Padres.

  1. I think there’s an old saying that goes: “Those who cannot hit Ricky Nolasco are condemned to October vacations.”

    Or something like that.

    Hope your neck gets better, scouts. I know that’s painful.

  2. Happy that the Tigers bumped up to a WC spot, but it will be tough to hold on with the next 7 vs the Royals and Indians. Hopefully the Kiddie Korps of Fulmer, Norris and Boyd are up to the challenge vs KC.

    Thanks for soldiering on. Stiff necks suck, you could say the are

      • Hell yeah!. He’s an essentially important member of my fantasy teams’s final push, besides that I now assume, pending any objection you might have, I am now an a semi auto year honorary Tiger’s fan.


        • I don’t really care about baseball standings and such any more.

          the last several times I have seen Tony I saw him moving slow and careful to offset the side effects of Haldo, which is needn’t to keep his cruelly, chemically, deluded brain away from suicidal delusions, He is only 33 and I know, from having cared for in the trenches those suffering from the horror of mental illness, that it will steadily get worse,

          I will wake up tomorrow but I don’t know why.
