Game 43, Padres at Mariners

DMZ · May 16, 2008 at 6:10 pm · Filed Under Game Threads 

What’s the use of holding out a work-sore hand to catch some when it turns up empty— what? Sorry, I was listening to something while thinking of Wlad. Oh, hey, lineups are out.


Seattle: 11/14 in the AL in batting average, 14/14 in OBP, 9/14 in SLG
San Diego: 16/16 in the NL in AVG, 16/16 in OBP, 16/16 in SLG

Pitching with some defense
Seattle: 6/14 in K/9. 10/14 in AVG allowed, 12/14 in OBP allowed, 10/14 in SLG allowed
San Diego: 9/16 in K/9. 6/16 in AVG allowed, 5/16 in OBP allowed, 7/16 in SLG allowed

Defensive efficiency:
Seattle: 28/30. SD: 18/30

I can feel the excitement.

Young versus Batista!

Now watch, just to spite me, this’ll be a thrilling, defense-dominated low-scoring duel with both pitchers going a full nine innings before Ichiro wins the game in the ninth when he singles and then steals three bases on three pitches.

Sexson’s back, yayyy– wait, uhh…

CF-L Ichiro
2B-R Lopez
3B-R Beltre
LF-L Ibanez
1B-R Sexson
DH-L Clement
C-R Johjima
RF-R Balentien
SS-R Betancourt

San Diego fields
CF-L Gerut
2B-R Iguchi
RF-L Giles
1B-L A Gonzalez
DH-B Clark
3B-R Kouzmanoff
SS-R Greene
C-B Bard (both Padres catchers are switch hitters. That doesn’t happen often)
LF-R Hairston

    Does Yuni have a new look with the socks, or did he change when I was listening to games on the radio?

    You know, we’re at a critical point in the game and FSN decides that now is the best time to give out rally fries? It just makes me sick. We want to see the game, not people begging for food.

    152 – couldn’t agree with you more

    149 – It is time for me to go out and get hammered. J-bombs for the jive tribe.

    120: Replace fractiousness with ‘attitude problems’, I suspect that remedies any misconstuction. Poor diction on my part.

    Seriously, a fishing trip? Is my sarcasmdar tango uniform, or is Jarrod seriously going to inspect Kenji’s tackle?

    We may have been hosed on that one…
    jagerbombs for everyone!!!

    Yep…think it’s time to go watch the rest of this at the bar.

    Holy cow some defense…or bad base running, either way, benefit much!

    Balentien and he switched to the socks somewhere in the Texas series. Last game? And they won, so of course he’ll stick with them.

    I always thought he was going to trip over those long pants anyway.

    The Wave should be banned.

    Um Kenji sort of didn’t catch that?

  11. fetish on May 16th, 2008 10:10 pm

    Whai… wha?

    Shouldn’t you burn your best pinch-runner for the TYING or GO-HEAD runner?

  12. jlc on May 16th, 2008 10:10 pm

    Juneau-thanks. I’m a big fan of the socks look, and not a fan of the pants three inches too long.

  13. PaulMolitorCocktail on May 16th, 2008 10:13 pm

    Well, only four walks given up tonight!

  14. jlc on May 16th, 2008 10:15 pm

    Jesus, how many times can you say it could have been worse? I think I’m already done with that phrase, and it’s only May. I had my hopes pinned on beating Texas and San Diego. Maybe tomorrow…. At least we’ll have the better pitchers the next two days.
