Lunchtime and Afternoon Scoreboard-Watching (9/3): NL West

First game of interest starts at 12.10p: NY Mets serve up Pat Misch (0-1, 3.41) vs. the Rockies' Jason Marquis (14-9, 3.60), in Colorado. Rockies are 4.5 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West.

Second game of interest starts at 4p (at which time our own GT will launch), but it has the Giants' Tim Lincecum (13-4, 2.33) vs. the Phillies' Pedro Martinez (2-0, 4.50). Feel free to use this thread to comment, or go ahead and leak into the Dodgers/Diamondbacks thread that will launch later; we're not provincial here at SoSG. Giants are 5.5 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West.

The Rockies will host the Diamondbacks this weekend, while the Giants move on to Milwaukee Friday to play the ~.500 Brewers.

Comment away, SoSG readers!

Thanks for saving me. F the conf call I was going to join. Now I'm just going to "do some research," watch the scoreboard, and comment away.

Oversized helmet grounds out to complete a 1-2-3 inning for Marquis. Bottom of the first, Rox already have a man on with none out.

I wonder what it's like to have someone like Timmah you get to march out there every 5th day and expect a win?

Dusty Baker said...

I can't even remember what it's like. I've heard tell.

Steve Sax said...

Mets get on the board in the second, thanks to a leadoff double; a Misch GIDP is all that prevents a seventh Met coming to the plate.

1-0 Mets, bottom 2.

Steve Sax said...

@rbnlaw: probably about the same way that Bochy feels about trotting that lineup out every day and expecting a run every fifth day

Dusty Baker said...

Bochy, or Torre...

Steve Sax said...

@DB, ouch. But true, of late.

Steve Sax said...

Remember when we scored 11 runs vs. Cincinnati? It seems like an eternity ago.

Dusty Baker said...

That's the thing. We bust out the bats once a blue moon then go back to our slumber. We have to make that regular, or it's going to be a short playoffs.

Dusty Baker said...

Mets up 2-0.

rbnlaw said...

The Amazin' Mets!

Steve Sax said...

5-0 Mets going to the sixth; Marquis chased. Wow!

Fred's Brim said...

they are a scrappy bunch that's for sure - i am amazed they are competitive at all. Jerry Manuel get a lot of grief, but I think he's done a great job with this triple A team

Dusty Baker said...

@ FB

Please...double A at best.

Steve Sax said...

6-0, though no lead is safe at Coors

Vin Scully is baseball's "chattiest" announcer

Steve Sax said...

6-2, top 8. See? Toldja.

Nic j said...

Cards lose, finally.

Maybe we can win and get the nl best record all to ourselves again.

Dusty Baker said...

6-3. Rox creepin and they're creepin and they're creepin.

Steve Sax said...

Clint Barmes HR but it's 6-3 through eight. Come on, Mets, close this out!

Steve Sax said...

@DB, I'm creeped out by this

Steve Sax said...

20 more minutes for Assassin's Circle, over on the main stage.

Steve Sax said...

Dan Murphy HR off Beimel, 8-3 Mets!

Steve Sax said...

Ten more minutes for Assassin's Circle!

Steve Sax said...

Two out 3B in the bottom of the ninth

Neeebs said...

I love how Sax refers to the Assassin's Circle as "the main stage."

27 Million copies of Halo sold, and it took until now to figure out that all you need is a comment thread, skull clip art, and old english font to make killing your friends enjoyable.

Yeah, it's like the first version of Doom.
