Gameday Thread, #153: 9/25 vs. Padres


Kevin Correia
RHP, 11-10, 4.08


Max Scherzer
RHP, 9-10, 4.08

Games until the blessed, merciful end of the season: 10.

The final home-stand of the season, and if the Diamondbacks are to avoid propping up the NL West [thankfully, there's no chance of us being relegated to the PCL], then they need to do a lot of damage this weekend. You might be forgiven for thinking, "Not him again," with regard to Correia, who will be making his fifth start against the Diamondbacks this season tonight. However, since he's 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA, I think our hitters won't mind too much, especially Parra (4-for-9 this year off him) and Reynolds (4-for-11).

It's likely to be Max Scherzer's last start of the season. I'm surprised they let him go so far past his previous career hight, what with these being largely meaningless contests. He's probably going to end up over 170 innings, and the effort involved is going to be even higher, because of his high number pitches per PA (4.12, second to Kersaw among all qualifying pitchers). I hope there's no blowback in 2010, especially with our rotation otherwise consisting of Dan Haren and a lengthy series of questionmarks. It'll be Scherzer's fourth start against the Padres this year, and they probably are sick of him, given his 1.89 ERA over 19 innings to date.

Will be about for much of this - the third installment of transcribing! - but might be a bit late showing up, as we're gonna get some Thai food first. I'll drift in after that, and hope there's still a meaningful game going on.
