Scoreboard Watching: Mets @ Giants, 12:45p

Hunter Pence in his Giants debut: 0 for 4, 2 K.

Barry Zito (8-7, 3.89) vs. Chris Young (2-5, 4.58).

The Dodgers and Diamondbacks may be off today, but the Giants are taking on the Mets, trying to salvage a series split after losing last night, 2-1. Only 2.5 games separate the NL West's top three teams, so every game counts. Except when they don't. Wait, what?

So far, so good: Mets put up 4 in the top of the first, Giants fail to respond.

All four runs came with two out. LULZ.

Come on you Mutts!

5-0 to Dodgers/Giants-lite!

Gnats get a run back on a Melky triple and an Under Pants sac fly.

Dusty Baker said...

Dicks on the pond with only one out. Grab some Geico, Mutts.

Dusty Baker said...

6-1!

More! More!

MR.F said...

WHOO! Dan Murphy singles in another run. 6-1. My fantasy team is also pleased.

Hideo Nomo said...

Zito done.

(Well, he was done before they signed him, but you know what I mean.)

MR.F said...

Cedeno singles, now 7-1.

Hideo Nomo said...

STEP ON THEIR THROATS.

Hideo Nomo said...

Heh. Dicks on the pond.

Steve Sax said...

7-1 Mets, bottom 6. Two out, Melky on first. Pence up...

Steve Sax said...

...Pence flies out on the first pitch and is now 0-for-2 on the day.

Hideo Nomo said...

CEDENO DAGGER! 9-1 Mets.

Hideo Nomo said...

More please?

Dusty Baker said...

Now pound dirty sand in their losing asses!

Hideo Nomo said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSSS.

1/2 game back? Baseball is crazy.

MR.F said...

Giants lose, Dan Murphy has a solid fantasy day, can't complain about that.

Hideo Nomo said...

Imagine if we had just won one stupid game against the DBacks.

MR.F said...

Dodgers should claim Cliff Lee?

Dusty Baker said...

Hell naw re Cliff Lee. Way too expensive.

Everyone goes on waivers...nothing to see here.

Hideo Nomo said...

The article makes a solid argument though.

But it probably isn't happening.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Philly would have to pitch in a bunch of that remaining salary. I certainly wouldn't mind, though. Especially if it ends up cock-blocking AZ.

Wow, the Angels are really shitty for a good team.

Dusty Baker said...

What a shitpit of pitching the last few games bt Angels and Rangers. My god, it's like watching BP.
