I'm toying with the idea of using this resource to try to watch the best game played on each date. So for example, on May 28, the 5/28/00 Pedro vs. Clemens matchup would probably get the nod.I'm not sure if this is on the radar of most SoSH users yet, but there's a way to find any MLB game since 2009 on the official MLB Youtube channel. Here is the Reddit link with the information, but the gist is basically:
In order to find a game, your search has to be in the following format:
- XXX AT YYY - Month DD, YYYY
- XXX is the official 3-letter code for the visiting team
- YYY is the official 3-letter code for the home team
There are a few other full games of interest scattered around Youtube. I'm currently watching the 5/28/00 Pedro vs. Clemens matchup at the toilet.
- Tampa Bay is "TBA" not "TBR" or "TAM"
- The Yankees are "NYA", not "NYY"
- The Mets are "NYN", not "NYM"
- The Giants are "SFN", not "SFG"
- The Royals are "KCA", not "KCR"
- Cubs/White Sox are "CHN" and "CHA", respectively
I'm wondering if anyone has any elegant suggestions for identifying the best game played on a given day. To use an extremely simple example, here are the options for March 28:
Wednesday, March 28, 2012
Seattle Mariners (3) @ Oakland Athletics (1) Boxscore
Thursday, March 28, 2019
Pittsburgh Pirates (3) @ Cincinnati Reds (5) Boxscore
Chicago White Sox (3) @ Kansas City Royals (5) Boxscore
Arizona D'Backs (5) @ Los Angeles Dodgers (12) Boxscore
Colorado Rockies (6) @ Miami Marlins (3) Boxscore
St. Louis Cardinals (4) @ Milwaukee Brewers (5) Boxscore
Cleveland Indians (0) @ Minnesota Twins (2) Boxscore
Baltimore Orioles (2) @ New York Yankees (7) Boxscore
Los Angeles Angels (0) @ Oakland Athletics (4) Boxscore
Atlanta Braves (4) @ Philadelphia Phillies (10) Boxscore
San Francisco Giants (0) @ San Diego Padres (2) Boxscore
Boston Red Sox (4) @ Seattle Mariners (12) Boxscore
Houston Astros (5) @ Tampa Bay Rays (1) Boxscore
Chicago Cubs (12) @ Texas Rangers (4) Boxscore
Detroit Tigers (2) @ Toronto Blue Jays (0) Boxscore
New York Mets (2) @ Washington Nationals (0) Boxscore
What's an efficient way of figuring out which of these games might have been a no-hitter, or featured two aces, or featured something else interesting? I feel like I need archived daily roundups.
