Scoreboard Watching: NL West Games Of Note (August 25, 2011)

Dodgers are idle today but we can still keep track of the NL West race. Arizona has a two-game lead in the standings, but Baseball Prospectus' Playoff Odds still has the Giants with a 67.3% chance of making the playoffs, with the Diamondbacks at 32.6% (the Dodgers are at 0.1%).

First up is ARI @ WAS, with newly-promoted Wade Miley (0-1, 11.25) getting the start for the Snakes. Yeah, that's the way to fight down the stretch of a pennant race. Miley Cyrus will face John Lannan (8-9, 3.61). First pitch, 4p PT.

Later tonight is HOU @ SF; Giants start Ryan Vogelsong (10-3, 2.47). Astros counter, if you can call it that, with Henry Sosa (0-2, 6.35), on whom the Giants batted around in a prior start. Yeah, I hope Arizona can win today. First pitch, 7.15p PT.

On this glorious off day, while re-watching Tuesdays game and that potent offense I started messing with things on my macbook. I've realized macs are pretty awesome. I now have the ultimate dock, when there is stuff in my "trash" the icon is the Giants logo. Empty the trash and it returns to the Dodgers. I'll never forget to empty the trash again.

I can send the .icns files to whomever would like them

That number isn't nearly as low as it should be.

Hell yeah I'd like those files, Orlando!

MR.F said...

0.1%? So you're saying there's a chance?

Steve Sax said...

@Steve K + Mr. F: We've used that dumb and dumber clip before in a GT, but I can't seem to find it now (I think it was Orel's GT)

MR.F said...

Russell Martin hit a GS? Bastard.

Steve Sax said...

Arizona, three hits and nothing to show for it.

It was Colonel Mustard in the library with the candlestick!

We're playing Clue, right?

Mustard has stole the Giants luck.
