He Said, She Said – Recaps For 5/11/2017

Scouts: Sorry gang, it’s going to be a quick one from me today.  I have a much deserved, much needed half a day off work which means I have to cram a bunch of work in before lunch time.  Prof has the day off, so once again you get a whole lotta ME!


 

Red Sox 4, Brewers 1 – Mookie Betts blasted a 3 run ding dang dong in the 9th to take the win.

Royals 6, Rays 0 – Jason Vargas is the sole bright spot on a pretty terrible Royals team.  Vargas went 7 giving up just 3 hits and lowered his league leading ERA to 1.01.

 

Astros 3, Yankees 2 – Jake Marisnick gunned down Jacoby Ellsbury at home to end the game in thrilling fashion.

 

Mariners 2, Blue Jays 7 – Toronto was powered by a 5 run 5th inning which included a Steve Pearce 3 run homer.

 

Padres 2, Rangers 5 – Mike Napoli homered in back to back innings propelling the Rangers to a come-from-behind walk-off victory in the 9th.

 

Twins 7, White Sox 6 – 4 in the first and 2 in the second and the Twins held on for the victory.  Eduardo Escobar, Miguel Sano, and Brian Dozier all went yard.

Dodgers 7, Rockies 10 – All 10 Rockie runs came in the first 4 innings, and then the bullpen came in and attempted a meltdown.

Pirates 1, D’Backs 2 – Zack Greinke, whom we haven’t heard much out of in a long time took a no-hitter into the 8th.  Zack struck out 11 and picked up his 4th win on the season.

 

Tigers 7, Angels 1 – The Rangers split squad dominated the Angels with a show of power early on.  Justin Upton picks up the 3 run jack in the first followed by Andrew Romine picking up a 2 run shot in the second.  Michael Fulmer took that and went to work holding the Angels to 1 run over 7 innings.

 

Reds 3, Giants 2 – This is loss number 24 for the Giants who are already 11 games out of the division sporting a horrific .333 win ratio.

Orioles, Nationals – PPD

  1. The big news of last year’s trades was Ken Giles to the Astros for five well-regarded prospects. In year two I would qualify it as a great deal less than advertised.. Vince Velasquez at Philly is still a mix of high ceiling/ #4 performance. Mark Appel continues with his vanishing act. (Imagine, the Astros could have had Kris Bryant). The other three prospects are about average in the Phillies system. And the young shortstop prospect to the ‘Stros is working through a drug suspension.

    Which brings us to Ken Giles. The WHIP and save rate hide the fact that it is a stomach-dropping roller coaster ride every time he goes out for a save. The “Unhittable” 102 mph fast ball is a lot more hittable than was imagined. The only thing that saved him from a blown save/loss yesterday was Marisnick’s gorgeous throw.

    Let’s speak for a moment of Jack Marisnick. I confess to being one of those who thought he would never quite belong on a MLB roster. Too much Fantasy baseball; I obsess on WAR’s and OPS’s and WRC+’s and stuff. With his speed and defense, he is actually a pretty valuable fourth outfielder and clubhouse presence. I stand corrected.

    Oh, and he makes the ladies swoon, too.
