Prof: HAPPY FRIDAY, FI FAM! We made it another week. It’s NEW MUSIC FRIDAY today, so here’s some brand new tracks for you. Forgive the language, but GODDAMN THIS IS ALL THE GOOD SHIT RIGHT HERE. ATL REPRESENT.
Scouts: Sorry about yesterday folks, had some work obligations preventing me from attending to the site. Monday and Tuesday of next week may be the same thing but hopefully after that we will be back to our regularly scheduled program. Thanks for sticking by us.
Padres 2, Diamondbacks 6 – Scouts: Taijuan Walker who has the absolute best name in baseball racked up 11 of those K’s that are sometimes backwards. Arizona now has 15 wins and maybe it’s time to start taking them seriously.
Mariners 2, Tigers 1 – Prof: Uh oh. I forsee an angry Historio cursing the name of K-Rod. Mainly because he choked away a fairly good Verlander start for Detroit.
Marlins 2, Phillies 3 – Scouts: This is about as mundane of a baseball game as you can find. There were no home runs. Both pitchers pitched good, but not great. No batter did anything overly exceptional and the runs all came in one at a time. You would be forgiven for falling asleep during this one.
Nationals 16, Rockies 5 – Scouts: Geo Gonzalez had himself a pretty good start shutting down a pretty hot offense. Bruce Harper jacked a bomb 451 feet, and the Nats put up 11 freaking runs in the 7th inning. Dale Murphy picked up another 3 hits and 3 RBI’s and is now batting .340/.367/.974 on the season. Impressive!
Braves 7, Mets 5 – Prof: Boy howdy, this was a dilly of a pickle. Thor was supposed to start, but has something wrong with his shoulder. So they sat him. The person who took his place in the rotation, Matt Harvey, apparently had a heavy workout yesterday and didn’t know he was going to pitch until 10 am. This was an early afternoon game. I really wonder what’s going through the minds of the people in charge over in New York. Not a single hurler on that staff has come away unscathed. And now, the precious arm of Thor is in jeopardy, too! Someone please save the elite pitchers of New York!
A’s 1, Angels 2 – Scouts: A pair of runs in the first was all the Ricky Nolasco and crew needed to put away this one.
Dodgers 5, Giants 1 F/10 – Prof: A bases only walk won the game for Los Angeles. What a deal. I know I said we shouldn’t worry about the Giants right now, but maybe we should be a little bit concerned. This is not good.
Astros 3, Indians 4 – Scouts: Francisco Lindor won it with a 2 run dinger in the 7th. Kluber gave up 8 hits over 7 but limited the Astros to just 3 runs while racking up 10 of those K’s we were talking about earlier.
Yankees 3, Red Sox 0 – Prof: WE HAVE A MADDUX! I repeat, we have a Maddux! The Pitching Performance of the Day goes to Masahiro Tanaka who outpitched Chris Sale and threw 97 pitches in this, his fifth career complete game. Also Maddux-like was the game time; 2 hours and 21 minutes. Yeah, boy. That’s the stuff.
