Need php development work to fix scraping script

My website is [url removed, login to view]

I need a developer experienced in php and hopefully with scraping scripts to help me solve a problem that my website is experiencing. Ideally, any candidate should know the basics of sports (for example, in MLB, you would know what a pitcher is, or what an inning is).

To give you an idea of the code that you'll be working with to properly prepare an estimate/bid, here is the github for the site: [url removed, login to view]

The gist of our problem is that the grading of the games / wagers is working incorrectly, with many games not getting a grade at all. Here's what I think the problem is: We have code that scrapes ESPN for the final scores of games, so that way we can have a score to grade wagers against for each game.

The entirety of our problems at the moment are related to MLB. We identify each game with a primary key made up of home and away teams, as well as pitcher name (to avoid problems with double headers). I'm thinking that ESPN changed their site layout, so our scraping code can no longer identify games correctly, and as such, is not providing a game score for several of our games. Without a score, those games go ungraded and therein lies the problem.

As examples of such games that haven't gotten a grade yet:

5/7 Detroit/Seattle

5/7 Baltimore/Texas

5/5 Cubs/Dodgers

Ideally, a solution would:

1) Fix our scraping code so that way we can correctly identify games correctly and grade them and

2) Backfill scores for games that have already occurred, so that way existing problems get fixed.

If you have longer term availability beyond fixing this one emergency project, please include that information as well. I'm looking to find a new developer to work with long-term, and hopefully your work on this project will lead to more down the road.

Thanks for looking, and please ask questions if you have any!
