He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 6/24/19

mythbusters explodeProf: Short one today, but to be honest I’m thankful because I am absolutely exhausted. Not sure about Scout, but I’ve been so busy and put in a LOT of hours the last couple of weeks. However, I’m still trying to keep up with the news. Today, I want to talk about the New York Mess. Er, Mets. What a horrible situation at Citi Field. First of all, the general manager is micro-managing to a degree that is almost insane. According to NYC media, Brodie Van Wagenen is texting people to tell manager Mickey Callaway to pull Jacob deGrom from starts. Just randomly, no rhyme or reason. Pull one of your most consistent players and leaders from the game and don’t even ask the manager or staff or deGrom himself how he’s going. That’s a recipe for disaster cake. The sauce on top of the disaster cake is Callaway himself, blowing up at a reporter for simply telling him he’ll “see him tomorrow”. What the actual heck? Callaway cursed at the reporter, and then left such a toxic environment that it lead to a player also confronting the media member, who literally did nothing but say goodbye to the manager. Meanwhile, the rest of the NL East watch with popcorn at the ready, because when this thing finally explodes, it’s going to be Mythbusters Concrete Truck worthy.

Scouts: Oh boy I messed up. I completely forgot to tell Prof that I was in a training class today and won’t be able to do my part of the post. I’m just gonna make this go live and clean it up later. Sorry everyone I’ll take my walk of Shame through the town now.

Hope y’all like Volbeat. 🙂


Mets 7, Phillies 13Prof: And speaking of the Mets, you would think that scoring seven would be a game winning move, right? Not when you’re making errors and giving up dingers like they are going out of style. It started out well enough for New York, with a Michael Conforto RBI double and a Todd Frazier RBI single, but then Philly mashed two solo homers to tie it up. Then, the error (from super rookie Pete Alonso, sadly), and a soft bloop to Steven Matz led to another run. Conforto tied it up with a home run but then the Phillies kicked it into overdrive, with a two run homer from Mikael Franco and numerous RBI infield hits, plus a Jay Bruce two run homer to put the Phillies up to 12.

Blue Jays 8, Yankees 10Prof: New York (the functional club) has tied their franchise record of twenty seven straight games with a home run with this win over Toronto. The sixth inning was monster, as the Yankees went through the lineup and was bookended by mashed taters from Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton. The Blue Jays got close, but just couldn’t overcome the deficit. CC Sabathia gets the win.

White Sox 5, Red Sox 6Prof: Ah, yes, the War of the Laundry has concluded another battle and this time the Red has proven victorious. Back and forth these socks went, with a homer here (Jackie Bradley Jr and Mookie Betts) and a homer there (Jose Abreu) and RBI singles galore (Nunez, Alonso, Sanchez). Bottom of the ninth walk-off dramatics thanks to – you guessed it – an RBI single.

Royals 2, Spiders 3 F/10Scouts: Pass

Braves 3, Cubs 8Scouts: Wilson Contreras drilled a homer and then got into it with Atlanta catcher Tyler Flowers.

Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 8Scouts: This was a close one until Arizona took a lead with 4 in the 8th.

Rockies 2, Giants 0Scouts: The Giants are bad. The end.

  1. Michigan is on the verge of a college WS win. Michiganders! The Vandy unis are ass, but their eye black is biblical. The series has been fun to watch. Paper and I have probably been more entertained by the ping of bats there than our mlb team games lately.

    The in-laws were in town last weekend so we took in another CT Tigers game, and it reminded me I still need to do that post from last year…

  2. Nats had the day off yesterday, and to celebrate, they called up Fernando Rodney for some reason.

    Fun fact: Nats Park opened in 2008; Rodney is old enough to have pitched against the Nats at RFK, where they played while Nats Park was being built.
