He Said, She Said – Recaps for 5/2/17

Sorry I don’t have a ton of time to write a long preamble today, I was able to get away just long enough to get the post up as it is.  If you haven’t already, go see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 this weekend.  I’m hearing good things.  I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m pretty sure I’ll see it a few dozen times this weekend.  I do love me some Ska to get a rainy Friday started, so let’s get movin’!  Also, Peter King and Curt Schilling are both still fucking morons and really need to shut up already.


Pirates 2, Reds 4Scouts: Starting pitcher goes 6 good innings.  Two guys have a pair of RBI.  What do you really talk about in such a middle of the road game?

D-Backs 2, Nats 4Scouts: Mark Scherzer punched out 11 guys in 7 innings giving up just one hit.  He also picked up two hits and a RBI.  So yeah, you could say he had a pretty decent game.


A’s 8, Twins 5Scouts: Jharel Cotton had an odd mixture of dominance and futility.  He gave up just three hits over 6 innings, but two of those hits were home-runs.  He also had 9 strikeouts.  In the end, a win is a win I suppose.


Rangers 10, Astros 4Scouts: Yesterday Texas gave up 10 runs to the Astros.  Today they scored 10 runs.  Baseball sure is fun right?  Rougned Odor, Joey Gallo, and Elvis Andrus all went deep.

White Sox 8, Royals 3Scouts: Jose Abreu and Matt Davidson went yard as Derek Holland had a strong outing.

Phillies 4, Cubs 5 F/13Scouts: This is one of those games were one team lost it more than another won it.  Albert Almora Jr. scored the winning run on a throwing error by Freddy Galvis who was attempting a double play.


Rockies 3, Padres 2 F/11Scouts: Ryan Hanigan hit a bomb in the 7th and got the go-ahead single in the 11th, making his Rockies debut.  Not a bad start with a new team huh?


Orioles 8, Red Sox 3Scouts:  Manny Machado continued his tear against the Red Sox going deep once again.  This one was a 466 shot, which broke a 3-3 tie, and he sure took his sweet time walking around the bases.  Manny doesn’t normally pull out the slow trot, but I suppose it’s ok when the opposing team throws at you three times in a week.  Or maybe the Sox are now required to draw and quarter him as retaliation.  I’m not up to date on my unwritten rules.  The blast was a Statcast record over the Green Monster.  Joey Rickard made an amazing play late in the game with 2 outs an the bases loaded that ended up sealing Boston’s fate.


Marlins 1, Rays 5Scouts: Tim Beckham went yard twice which was more than Matt Andriese needed to put away the Marlins.

Brewers 5, Cardinals 4Scouts:  Another pinch-hitter steps in for the win!  This one was Jesus Aguilar smacking his first career home run!


Angels 3, Mariners 11Scouts: This was a long night for the Angles who gave up 11 runs, and only 1 was off a homer.  That’s a lot of singles and doubles to have to watch go by.

Mets, Braves – PPD

Indians, Detroit PPD

  1. Yesterday’s game was a mixed bag for the Curly Ws, with bits of bad and good news sprinkled in with Scherzer’s “Miss Me Yet?” domination of his first old team.

    The bad news – Bruce Harper left early with a tight groin, but claims he’s day to day, says he’s looking forward to playing in Philly this weekend. It’s gonna be wet there, at least tonight, so I expect he’ll be out a day or two, although the way the Nats underplay injuries, a tight groin usually means full reconstructive surgery on all four major joints in the lower extremities, so Harper’s probably done for his career.

    The good news – Cesar Romero broke out his Billy Wagner impersonation in the ninth to get the save, after Jack Blanton gave up yet another home run, so we’ll add Romero’s name to the list of Guys Who Have Held, Hold, or Might Someday Hold the Closer’s Job for the Nats. The bullpen’s gonna need a school bus, not a golf cart, am I right? (I miss the old golf cart bullpen cars from the 70s…)

    6 1/2 up in early May is too early to cruise, obviously, but it may be getting late pretty early in the NL East.


  2. For all of you who might be wondering, do the Twins have any weakness at all, the answer is yes. The pitcher formally known as the Amazing Young Gibson was sent down to AAA. He’s the second of the season starting 5 to have bombed out in the first month. Santana is doing extremely well and can be expected to continue, albeit it not at his current divine level. Santiago is doing well enough, which surprises the hell out of me. It wouldn’t surprise the hell out of me if this were to cease. Hughes has been, um, struggling.

    Berrois is the only good looking option to plug the growing number of holes in the boat. After him comes Tyler Duffy and other guys whose names I can’t remember right now.

    Row row row you boat…
