Joe Grav said...

my radio isn't working ahhhh...has Leahy said anything about D-Rob

wooden said...

No word about D-Rob yet - nobody listed as injured, so no "Hellenic Flu" - new pitcher, Luis Arroyo

Joe Grav said...

Luis Arroyo was in the United League with Amarillo, but my first Googling couldn't uncover any stats. I'll look again.

My radio is working now.

YESSSSSs @ Teilon being in the lineup!!!!

Joe Grav said...

Scratch that - he was on the Laredo Broncos - & he made the allstar team. Stats forthcoming

wooden said...

Arroyo just finished up pitching for Laredo in the United League. 32 years old. Lefty. 6-0, 175.
Went 8-4 w/ 3.55 ERA this year. Most of his career, he's been a reliever. Pitched in Atlantic League 2004-2006.

Joe Grav said...

18 starts
8-4
3.55 ERA
4 CG
124.1 IP
126 H
58 R/49 ER
128 K/63 BB
.259 avg against

Not bad at all, but who knows how these numbers translate

Joe Grav said...

Arroyo's pitching against Bennett on Wednesday.

The fact that he was in the Atlantic League for three years makes me feel much better.

Joe Grav said...

Pavlik strikes out the side. okie doke

wooden said...

Arroyo had the 6th best ERA in what was clearly a hitter's league (4.06 was the leading team ERA, worst hitting team hit .268)

Joe Grav said...

Meanwhile, I'm a big Bryan Morse fan again tonight as he takes on Les Capis up north.

Joe Grav said...

Teilon is 27 years old....ish.

wooden said...

Went 6 or more innings in 17 of 18 starts, allowed 3 runs or less in 10 of those outings. Struck out 128 in 124.1 innings. Did I mention he's lefthanded?

wooden said...

307? Did Josue lose weight?

Joe Grav said...

Josue Lopez with an RBI groundout. Teilon scores after walking to lead off the inning. 1-0

Joe Grav said...

HOME RUN JOHN WELCH!!! His 3rd home run of the season....which also happens to be his 3rd home run in the past 5 games :D Perez scores on the play. 3-0 Spirit

Joe Grav said...

Quote of the Day:

"I'm left-handed and I'm breathing, so I know there's a pitching job for me somewhere."

Joe Grav said...

5-0 Red Sox!! F-U Kazmir :D

wooden said...

Worcester's up 2-0 over Atlantic City... Yount out on called strikes, SSDL

wooden said...

Leahy just confirmed that Kelly will be back in Brockton in 2008 (i.e. Rox retain his rights)

Joe Grav said...

That is just fraudulent IMO. Trades like that should not be allowed.

Are you listening Uncle Miles?

Joe Grav said...

come on Josue

wooden said...

If the Jackals weren't coughing up another player, I might agree. I've never liked player rentals, but usually they've been interleague, not intraleague.

Joe Grav said...

Josue Lopez with an RBI fielder's choice, scoring Perez.

Joe Grav said...

Wait, it's 4-1? I thought it was 4-0. Did something happen in the 5 minutes i was away or is Leahy wrong?

wooden said...

NJ scored a run in the bottom of the 3rd. RBI groundout, I think.

Joe Grav said...

Rox are down 3-0 in quebec, but they have a threat brewing in the 4th.

Joe Grav said...

The Spirit go down in order in the 5th...this game is flying - you'd think it were 0-0, not 4-2, at this pace.

Meanwhile, Brockton scores 2 up north in the top of the 4th. 3-2 Quebec.

Joe Grav said...

Anddd Worcester goes up 5-1 on Atlantic City with 3 more in the 4th inning. Nice. Fellow Massholes can help us out tonight.

Sussex leads New Haven 2-0 which is also good. The Pride are thumping the Grays 8-0....7 in the top of the 3rd, which is still going on

wooden said...

Worcester's now up 6-1, the Rox are now down 3-2

Joe Grav said...

mike lowell is the red sox mvp right now. 6-0 boston.

3 rbi for mikey.

Joe Grav said...

Kuclick RBI triple to CF, scores a run...4-2 Spirit

Joe Grav said...

Kuklick*

that's a tough one to spell.

Joe Grav said...

Zach Smithlin with an RBI single...Kuklick scores...4-3

and LHP Brandon Martin is warming up in the 'pen for the Spirit.

It's my fault for saying the game was breezing by.

Joe Grav said...

TEILON with a nice catch to end the inning.

Oh man, I'm so pumped to see him back at Fraser on Friday night.

wooden said...

Your punishment: You must read Curt Schilling's blog and then edit for clarity.

Joe Grav said...

AHHH not that

wooden said...

Brockton has tied it 3-3

Joe Grav said...

Another big spot for my man ho-sway

Joe Grav said...

nothin'

wooden said...

Ah, don't worry...Bumbles bounce!

Joe Grav said...

NICE. Hopefully Morse can hold down les Capis.

Brandon Martin in to pitch for the Spirit here in the 6th.

Joe Grav said...

fudge...wilton veras rbi double ties the game...the only good news, he is thrown out trying to reach 3rd

Joe Grav said...

well, it's a 3-inning game now

Joe Grav said...

Jackals go to the pen: Justin Garza

wooden said...

The Rox are now up 5-3

Joe Grav said...

urgh...no runs in the 7th

Joe Grav said...

Let's try this again - it's a 2-inning game now

Joe Grav said...

Torres safe at first to start the inning. EY, OH, let's go

Joe Grav said...

he reached on an error by sandy madera :D

Joe Grav said...

Teilon lines in to a double play to end the inning........ :(

wooden said...

Advantage: Jackals

Joe Grav said...

Deuce.

Well, Martin has settled nicely.

wooden said...

So, what's the number for Mobile Law, again?

Joe Grav said...

i'll tell you, if you tell me some info about sylvan street grille...or tell me who has been nick lopardo's personal landscaper

Joe Grav said...

New pitcher for the Jackals - Kyle George

former Elmira Pioneers legend

wooden said...

What if I offer you a Dunkin' Donuts Smoothie?

Joe Grav said...

Can you get one after listening to another exciting North Shore Spirit victory?

wooden said...

Sure, it's only 5 miles to the nearest one here -- quite a change from, say, two on Boston St. 500 yards apart.

Joe Grav said...

Trezza battles and battles and battles and doubles.

Joe Grav said...

Please, that's nothing -- in revere there is a Dunkin Donuts literally across the street from another Dunkin' Donuts

Joe Grav said...

also, there is another dunkin donuts further down that street.


drage warming up in the pen.

BIG spot for a BIG man, come on JOSUEEEEEEEEEe

Joe Grav said...

DALEY ITEMS!

wooden said...

Credit given, but being better than the Item is an awfully low bar to clear.

wooden said...

I'm Steve Krause. Tonight, I'm going to pound out everything I know about local sports and still fit it into a 750-word column.
