He Said, She Said – Recaps for 5/7/17

Prof:  Hey, guys. I was a little under the weather last week. Unlike Matt Harvey, I actually really did have a migraine and it drained the life out of me. So my apologies for being AWOL but all of my energies were spent actually doing the work I get paid for, and literally nothing else.

Scouts: As a special gift to our own Histo, I figured I’d class up the joint a little with the following gif from the weekend.

Also, a gust of wind caused a Balk in a minor league game this weekend.  Just when you’d thought you saw it all.

 

 


 

Marlins 7, Mets 0Prof:  HAHAHAHHAHA. HAHAHA. HA. Oh, god. /Ron Burgundy voice/ We are laughing. OK, so we all heard about Matt Harvey, who was supposed to pitch in this game. But obviously, he didn’t. Would it have made a difference? Possibly. But Giancarlo Stanton gives no effs and hit two home runs anyway.

 

Brewers 6, Pirates 2Scouts: Eric Thames just keeps on mashing and mashing.  He’s up to 12 now.

Blue Jays 2, Rays 1Scouts: Darwin Barney (what a name) jacked a go-ahead dinger in the 8th

Red Sox 17, Twins 6Prof:  Yikes. Chris Sale struck out ten. Boston had ten runs in the ninth inning. What the everloving heck? Oh, and Sandy Leon hit two homers.

 

Rangers 3, Mariners 4Scouts: The Rangers were in trouble long before Kyle Seager went deep in the 8th as three pitchers combined to walk four batters and give away a 3 run lead in the 7th.

 

White Sox 0, Orioles 4Prof:  Baltimore swept Chicago, and Chris Tillman’s season debut was quite the party.

Yankees 5, Cubs 4 F/18Scouts: Holy crap!  This game took over 6 hours to complete.  It featured more than 500 pitches, 15 pitchers, and 48 fucking strike outs.  That’s pure lunacy!  The game eventually won on some small ball as Aaron Hicks picked up a bunt single and throwing error, sacrifice fly, and finally a fielder’s choice.

 

Indians 1, Royals 0Prof:  There was a bee swarm at the K’s upper deck yesterday. That has nothing to do with the way the Royals played, I just wanted to mention it.  The Magical Land of Cleve pitched their way out of a jam a few times, and one run was all they needed to get the victory in Kansas City.

Diamondbacks 2, Rockies 5Scouts: Tyler would like to have a Chatwood gave up just 2 hits over 7 super innings.  Mark Reynolds is on a homer tear lately going deep for the 11th time this season.

Cardinals 6, Braves 4 F/14Prof:  Props to the Braves for taking the Redbirds into extras, especially with this joke of a roster. Atlanta came back in the eighth inning to tie it up – thank you Lord Freddie Freeman – and tried their darnedest to actually win a game in this series. But then Tommy Pham happened. Oh well.

 

Astros 5, Angels 3Scouts: Jose Altuve and Evan Gattis provided the fireworks leading the Astros to their 21st victory of the year.  Only the Nationals have the edge in

Tigers 6, Athletics 8Prof:  Prayer circle for our friend Historio, as K-Fraud has let her down yet again.

Giants 0, Reds 4Scouts: Scott Feldman took charge of this one, going the distance giving up just 4 hits and 1 walk while shutting out the Giants.

Nationals 5, Phillies 6 F/10Prof: Freddy Galvis was the player of the game for Philadelphia. Two hits, 3 RBI, including the game winner. Captain Caveman Jayson Werth continues to play well in Philly, harkening back to his old days, hitting two homers. (What’s the deal with two homer guys?)

Dodgers, Padres – PPD —

  1. Current closer Shawn Kelley makes an unexpected trip to the DL on Friday, Closer in Waiting Koda Glover is already on the DL, and so Dusty was forced to play “Cobble together a bullpen” this weekend.

    Friday night, it was Fat Albers getting his first career save, Saturday night Nat Turner pitched the final two innings of a 6-2 win, but things caught up to them yesterday, when Princess Grace of Torrance was asked to pitch the 7th and 8th, and he couldn’t finish, exiting with two on and two out and a 5-2 Nats’ lead.

    Fat Albers’ relieved, and his first pitch to Aaron Altherr was one of those sliders that analysts describe as a “cement mixer”, just spinning its way lazily to the plate under Altherr hit it to the intersection of E. Passyunk Avenue and S. 9th St, where the ball spent the next several hours trying to decide between Pat’s and Geno’s.

    The game eventually moved to the 10th, and Blake Treinen, soon to be of the Syracuse Treinens, was once again the victim of too many hits and walks, and the Phils salvaged a game.

    Overall, not a bad weekend for the Nats, winning two out of three while Royce Harper sat out the weekend (he’ll play tonight), and Zimmerman, Wieters, and Eaton (of course) all had the day off on Sunday.

    As for that Dodgers – Padres rainout, may I suggest the following ironic musical accompaniment?

    • How much can we use the 4 relievers with ERA’s of 2.25 and lower? Literally, half of them have been excellent and the other half are gasoline…reducing the solid guys to kindling. So glad we gave away another well-rated pitching prospect for Mikie Mahtook…
