Scoreboard Watching: July 1, 2013

Scoreboard watching at Citi Field.

Happy July! Now that we've completed our first winning month of the year, let's take this first day to rest up while keeping an eye on some of our NL West friends, all of which whom have games that start at 4p PT:

  • Arizona @ New York Mets: Wade Miley (4-7, 4.55) vs. Shaun Marcum (1-9, 5.08). Shaun of the rolling over and playing dead? Well, the good news, I suppose, is that Marcum earned his first win of the year in his last outing, a 3-0 win over the White Sox in which Marcum went 8.0 IP. On the other hand, the D'backs don't see a real Met pitcher until game 3 of the series on Wednesday, when they draw Matt Harvey. Boo.
  • San Diego @ Miami: Jason Marquis (9-3, 3.99) vs. Jose Fernandez (4-4, 2.98). Fernandez is tied for the team lead in wins, along with Dodger trade bait Ricky Nolasco (who is 4-8). Fernandez also leads the team in IP (84.2) and Ks (84), which by my math works out to about a K an inning. Graduate education, baby!
  • San Francisco @ Cincinnati: Mike Kickham (0-2, 10.57) vs. Bronson Arroyo (6-6, 3.61). Kickham is pretty green, while Arroyo has long flowing hair. Put 'em together, and you've got the She-Hulk.

Of course there's a J Scott Campbell She-Hulk, right?

Marmol? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO......OOOOOOOOOO!

Steve Sax said...

posted...thanks for the tip

MR.F said...

I've never been a fan of the Amazonian body type.

Hideo Nomo said...

AZ already up 2-0.

CIN also up on SF, 2-0.

Paul said...

Giants in trouble again. Two on and one out. Kickham getting kicked around.

MR.F said...

Vagiants down 4-0.

MR.F said...

Vagiants now down 7-1 in the 5th inning.

Steve Sax said...

AZ up 3-0, T6. The Mets' Eric Young just made a ridiculously stupid jump for a pop fly that bounced out of his glove; it was like Young thought the wall was a heck of a lot closer than it actually was. Cody Ross ends up with a leadoff double in the top of the sixth.



Steve Sax said...

Marlins up on Padres 4-0, B7. Marlins have one out and a man on first.

Steve Sax said...

Reds now up 8-1 on Giants, B5. Reds have two on with two out. Arroyo at the plate, facing George Kontos.

Kickham lasted 2.2 and gave up 7 ER. But he did get two Ks!

Steve Sax said...

San Diego down to its final out, down 4-0 in Miami. 3-2 count.

Steve Sax said...

And, he walks him.

Steve Sax said...

Headley singles, so Padres at the corners.

Steve Sax said...

It's raining in Cincinnati, having completed six full innings. Reds 8, Giants 1.

Steve Sax said...

Kyle Blanks makes the third out. Padres lose.

Steve Sax said...

David Wright just knocked in Eric Young, and now there are first and second with 1 out. Gibby going to the pen.

Steve Sax said...

AZ 3, Mets 1 (bottom seven, two on, one out)

MR.F said...

Good job Marlins. Come on, Mets.

MR.F said...

Whoo, Cishek gets the 1-out save for the Marlins. My fantasy team is thrilled.

Steve Sax said...

Josh Satin of the Mets hits a sure 6-4-3 double play ball, but Didi Gregorious botches the 6-4 part so they only turn the force out at second. First and third, two out.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, wasted opportunity there for the Mets

Steve Sax said...

John Buck (batting .206) fouls out to first.

3-1 AZ through seven.

Fred's Brim said...

Buck was leading the league and RBIs at one point in the season, like a month in. I don't think he's had a hit since

Fred's Brim said...

Parra nearly caught that but might have broke his face

MR.F said...

1 out triple for the Mets.

Steve Sax said...

Nasty fall by Parra, including a faceplant. Mets' Omar Quintanilla legs out a triple. One out.

Fred's Brim said...

Stupid Mets trying to leave a guy at third with less than 2 outs

MR.F said...

Mets one out away from blowing another opportunity.

Fred's Brim said...

EYJr gets him home with a double, 3-2

Steve Sax said...

Eric Young doubles in Quintanilla, then got to third on a WP...but that's it. AZ 3, Mets 2, through 8.

Fred's Brim said...

Murph pops up leaving Young at third, on to the 9th

Steve Sax said...

okay kiddies, gotta run.

MR.F said...

Well, they got one run at least.

MR.F said...

Peace out Saxamaphone.

Hideo Nomo said...

When did EYjr go to the Mets?

Fred's Brim said...

LaTroy to put this game out of our misery

Fred's Brim said...

@Gnomes a week or two ago, Rox DFAed him I think

MR.F said...

Last chance for the nigh mets.

Orel said...

Saxamaphone!

Fred's Brim said...

Darren Oliver is still in the league and is somehow still decent

Fred's Brim said...

Tramapoline!

Fred's Brim said...

Byrd with a one-out double, soon to be stranded

Paul said...

Why am a blacked out from Baseball Tonight?

Fred's Brim said...

he was 6-inches or so from a home run

could have used a steroid or two there

Orel said...

Mmmm...sacrilicious.

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul - the wordwide leader was showing the Gnats game tonight. I am guessing the rain delay still has you in a blackout

Paul said...

That was close to getting out.

Paul said...

Come on Mets.

Fred's Brim said...

Josh Satin has some Bert brows

Paul said...

I hope so FB. I don't need another stupid blackout rule

Fred's Brim said...

safe! nice tag

Paul said...

Oh man I thought he was dead on that play.

Fred's Brim said...

he should have been

MR.F said...

Tie!

Paul said...

Just get a bs base hit to left field.

Fred's Brim said...

you idiot

Paul said...

Only the mets.

Paul said...

Or Dodgers.

MR.F said...

Sigh, nigh mets.

Orel said...

Mets with the late-innings picket fence.

Orel said...

You're our only hope, Daniel Murphy!

Orel said...

Dammit.

Orel said...

A.A. Milne
B.B. King
C.C. Sabathia
Didi Gregorious

Fred's Brim said...

EE Cummings?

Orel said...

that's e.e. cummings to you

Fred's Brim said...

there might be 300 people left at New Shea

Paul said...

Byrd turd.

Fred's Brim said...

why is there a can of Pam on the Mets bench?

Paul said...

Walk off walk?

Fred's Brim said...

woah that was close to strike 3, rancho ardi time

Orel said...

Rancho Metsdiendo

Steve Sax said...

Two puts, bottom 11, bases full of mets

Steve Sax said...

This is one heck of a midseason scoreboard watching thread

Paul said...

It has taken me awhile to figure out the mets scoreboard configuration. I must be tired.

Paul said...

Dammit!!

Fred's Brim said...

aw crap
Goldshite will probably hit a homer next inning just to drive me more crazy

gnite all

Steve Sax said...

To the bottom of the 12th we go, tied at 3

Steve Sax said...

Mets have used four PH tonight, batting .128, .157, .197, and .250. Unsurprisingly, none of them have gotten a hit.

They kinda seem like the Dodgers, circa May 2013

Paul said...

Get a steal little little EY!

Paul said...

I'm gonna wake up and Ned will have traded the Dodgers for the Cubs.

Orel said...

This game is still going on?

Orel said...

C'mon Wright, send us home. Wait, I'm already at home.

Orel said...

SI MLB ‏@si_mlb 23s

David Wright can't come through. Pops up low pitch to short CF to end 12th inning. We are headed to 13 in Queens!

Orel said...

Damn you, former Dodger Cody Ross.

Orel said...

Good job, good effort, Mets.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, rodeo clown HR in the top of the 13th. 4-3 AZ

Alex Cora said...

Fing Cody Ross hurts the Dodgers even when the Dodgers are idle.

Steve Sax said...

Bases loaded, two out for the mets, down 1 run...

Paul said...

Mets win!

Steve Sax said...

Mets score! How many?!?!

Steve Sax said...

Mets win it!!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Andrew Brown delivers!!

Alex Cora said...

Woohoo. Dbacks lose!!

Steve Sax said...

Wow, Diamondbacks, Padres, and Giants all lose.

Paul said...

3.5 out!

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers sneak to 3.5 GB

Steve Sax said...

This is crazy

Steve Sax said...

But here's my number

Steve Sax said...

So call me...

Meh, you get it

Orel said...

Did I miss anything?

Orel said...

Josh Rawitch's Twitter feed has gone silent....

Paul said...
