    Yeah like I said, it's just a matter of playing around with the right parsed output, the logic remains the same (ie, Use Lynx to fetch the content).

    I have tried playing around with parsed output but I cant get it to work correctly.It would be nice to get the output of the commnad in the terminal to be the same as in conky,I am trying to get the output in a second conky but without much luck.As you can tell I am still somewhat new to conky code.

    Mine is showing a bunch of highlight links underneath in conky (Box score, play-by-play, etc.)

    Hmm. 'Tis the season, and this doesn't work very well any more because ESPN changed their page layout.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix?

    Okay... hopefully I can provide a service, in exchange for a little help. I can get around the issue with the formatting of the ESPN site. But I need some Conky support.

    I just got my first Ubuntu machine a week ago (a Dell Mini 9) and installed Conky yesterday... and really have no idea how to set this up in my config file to get it to update properly. So if someone would be willing to share a snippet of their config file in exchange, I would greatly appreciate it!

    Instead of using the ESPN feed, I use 4Info (m.4info.com). It is a WAP site designed for older cell phones -- and the formatting of the pages have not changed in years. The pages are super bare bones and offers sports, weather and other info.

    When I do a search on a team name (like the Tribe) and then click on the link for the team name, I get a URL like this: http://m.4info.com/search?searchQuery=Cleveland+Indians

    I then format the lynx command like this:
    Code:
    lynx -nonumbers -nolist -dump http://m.4info.com/search?searchQuery=Cleveland+Indians | egrep -i -B2 -A4 "Status"

    ...which gets me this output:
    Code:
    Cleveland Indians  (1-6)   (R) 2    (H) 10    (E) 0
    Kansas City Royals (4-3)   (R) 4    (H) 5    (E) 0
    Status:  Final
    Date:  4/13
    Winning Pitcher: Zack Greinke  (2-0)
    Losing Pitcher: Fausto Carmona  (0-2)
    Saving Pitcher: Joakim Soria  (4 saves)

    Aha. I found this post that had the answer: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=765841

    Now I can follow every agonizing step in the Indians' terrible 1-6 start to the 2009 season right on my desktop.

    Much belated thanks to gschroder. I somehow missed the solution even though I asked for it last season.

    I'll be using this without doubt this season.

    ...

    Sometimes all I really wanna know, though, is Who's on First?!

    Re: HOWTO: MLB Baseball scores from the command line!

    I"m just configuring my conky script using Lynx to fetch the content.
    I've managed to fetch the correct data, but I only want the "EAST" division to show and not the central. Below is the input and output.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Re: HOWTO: MLB Baseball scores from the command line!

    Okay I solved it people. All I had to change was the A12 to A6.
    A stands for the number of lines. I figured this out and thought it might help anyone out there, thats why I'm posting this.
