Giants Ready to Sweep?

Posted in Uncategorized by dirtnrocksnomo on August 22, 2012

I haven’t been able to watch many games lately but last night was a good one to make time for.  Staked to an early lead Lincecum cruised along until his sweat allergy got the best of him but he pushed through and put the club in the position to win the game and now the series.  Having waited all season for a moment to point to that brought the club together I really didn’t expect Cabrera’s suspension to be what did it. I read somewhere that Bochy had the team at his house for BBQ recently and I would rather believe that was what it was. Whatever it was remains to be seen but the Giants are playing well and they can keep rolling with a sweep today.

Go Giants!

      And it’s the real good 2 1/2, the one with a lead of 3 in the loss column.

    Sweep!

      Or, more appropriate, “How sweep it is!”

    for a guy that throws that hard, casilla breaking ball is killer. Twice it’s Ethier, tonite it’s Kemp that goes down for the last out. In the words of art blakey, “As the message is being delivered.”

    To answer dirt’s question: HELL YEAH!

    A brief interlude of joy and then, there will be no Tomahawk Chop in SF.

    It seems Casilla doesn’t get a save, but he did “save” it, getting the DP in the 8th and a relatively quiet 9th… Hope he’s the closer from here out.

      you are correct, sir. And what a pleasure to see Arias stepping up, the defence making plays and Bochy smiling.

      Go NL West leading San Francisco Giants.

    three games derivative of a high calibre team.

    that is to say: Woo Hoo!!

    hit the library as the game was first on and picked up the Goodwin book zum mentioned along with one called “Driving Mr. Yogi” that I started and is great. Also found the new one by Alan Furst, historical novelist of WWII resistance movements throughout Europe.
    reading stuff like this to relax is perfect complement to the high of last few nights of baseball.
    Wisc started this month off post on predictions on their record, which has to be pretty good…..

    Well Hell….We got the “SWEEP” so anyone who didnt believe that couldnt happen,fuck em.3 out of 3 is a hell of alot sweeter then 2 out of 3, +the 2 game swing in the standings is what really makes it big.

    • twinfan1 said, on August 22, 2012 at 10:30 pm

      I never said or thought or inferred that that they couldn’t do that-so fine, fuck anybody who thought they couldn’t.

    I like Kontos, Paul. Buit he needs another pitch to become a 7th, 8th inning guy, IMO. And being the best guy to keep things in check for a couple innings is still an important job.

    • paulinasia said, on August 22, 2012 at 10:31 pm

      Yes it is, and I agree about Kontos. Just don’t want to see Hensley out there anymore because a) it might mean the team is way behind (the only time he should be used), and b) he sucks….. :-)

      • twinfan1 said, on August 22, 2012 at 10:41 pm

        Well, the thing is- even Hensley has been pretty good for being the 5th or 6th guy in the pen, Paul. The guy had stranded 23 of 28 baserunners. That’s a good number. For a startler- in the year before we picked him up, Casilla had allowed 15 of 19 to score . Goodnight, Paul.

    Not bad, for a bunch of idiots.

    • eddacker said, on August 22, 2012 at 10:37 pm

      We love you too, Bozo, it is the best we could do.
      we need a 14 way dial-a-shot

      BTW the blog is getting twice our normal amount of visitors, in case anyone doubted The Rivalry.

    • TedSpe said, on August 22, 2012 at 10:40 pm

      The usual gang of idiots. You fucking clown
