IGD: Padres vs Pirates (19 Sep 07)

Game #151
time: 7:05 p.m. PT
tv: 4SD
sp: Chris Young (9-7, 2.77) vs Ian Snell (9-12, 3.92)
pre: Padres.com, B-R.com

Chris Young is 1-4 with a 4.30 ERA in 10 starts since the All-Star break. Opponents are hitting just .161/.273/.294 against him during that stretch. Wait, do you smell something? I think it’s a disconnect.

Ian Snell, meanwhile, is giving a clinic on second-half meltdowns. He is 2-7 with a 5.40 ERA in 13 starts, and a much more sensible .302/.363/.511 opponent batting line.

  1. phils 0
    Cards 0 4th

    A Phils loss would releave a little pressure because in baseball, you can’t win every day. Right Philly?

  2. On the scoreboard …

    – Mets up 5-3 in 6th
    – Brewers up 2-1 in 4th

  3. On the scoreboard …

    – Mets up 5-3 in 6th
    – Brewers up 2-1 in 4th
    – Cubs losing 2-1 in 4th
    – Dogs & Rox tied at 1-1 in 2nd

    The Cubs & Brewers are worth keeping an eye on because we want them to separate … the sooner one or the other clinches, the better the Padres will be during that final series with the Brewers.

    … and I’m glad that it appears we, as a group, as past gnashing our teeth over Jack … and can simply root for this former-Padre … all the while focusing on our own pennant race.

  19. 17 … no one can … nor should … explain the Turbine Dude … except to say that it’s my understanding he works for one of those aerospace companies you drive by on I-5 near the airport …

  20. How is having B(l)um in the 2-hole better than having Hairston in the 2-hole? Yuck … and chin up!

    Batters faced – I Snell 6; C Young 4.

    … 2 runs in bottom is nice answer to 1 run in top …

  22. 20…Lynch Mob…Thanks for the “heads up” on Turbine Dude. SOunds like I better not know what he does. Good for our Natioanl Security.

  23. #17: When I first discovered DS, I signed on as Rick S. I was confussed with Sutcliff and soon changed my moniker to Turbine Dude. Realizing agter meeting Geoff and some of the other DS peeps it was easier for them to recognize me if I just signed on with my name. However, I needed to incorporate the two to avoid confussion. Ergo, Rick Schroder (Turbine Dude).
    I work at Solar Turbines in R&D Test Engineering Group.
    Hope that clears everything up for you.

  24. Ouch, just watched Griffey collapse after charging a ball, he had to under hand it to second base. Looked like a groin. All that talent and his body is too tight. Too bad.

  25. Linebrink works his magic in the 7th for the Brew-ha’s …

  27. #24 Thanks for the clarification. I used to work for a Magnetic Company that would sell Soft Ferrite and Magnets to a company called “Capstone Turbine” and other aerospace comps. that’s why I was interested in the “Turbine Dude”. Plus anything Dude in a sports realm equals something cool so……

    Anyways……Thanks again for clarification. 4 friends of mine are at the game tonight. They had a ticket for me but I’m at home due to massive workload.

    Go Padres.
