A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Game 1 Goes to the Good Guys

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 20, 2010

I still don’t have the hate for the Dodgers burning deep within me the way it did in the 70’s and 80’s– but last night was sweet. Casey Blake looks like a tired, old woman at the plate. Who doesn’t *love* that?

Bumgarner looks like he’s 28 years old on the mound…..

And thank God for Buster Posey. If he doesn’t muscle that single into center field who knows how long the team would have been second guessing themselves……

Just a huge win all the way around, especially on the heels of the Sunday game blown by that idiot Cuzzi. What the hell was up with his comments *explaining* his call?  “Blanco made a decent attempt to put the tag on him…that’s why I called him out.” Whhhhhaaaatttttt the HELLLLLLLLL is this dumbass talking about?

    The Dodgers are done. Season over. They’ll be huge sellers at the deadline.

    Great move by Bochy! Maybe people will stop calling him blockhead now! 😀

    Bullpen was fantastic! Fresnobus just got a flat tire after the performances by Bautista and Casilla. Looks like Affeldt has reverted to 2009 form just in time for the Giant Strides to keep on keeping on. Posey and Torres are absolutely golden. The lineup is getting dangerous. This is one helluva different team from just some 3 weeks back when the LaBumbos wreaked havoc in China Basin.

    Turnabout is fair play and it couldn’t have happened at a better part of the season. Except for that defeat by a bad umpire, this team has not lost a game since the Break.

    The GIANT has awakened.

    Thanx, MacD and Chuck. One astute case of managing. I’ll bet that wherever they are right now, both John J. McGraw and Leo Durocher are having bellylaughs over that one.

    Don’t think “Donny Baseball” will be getting any managerial offers any time soon.

    Stix and JBat, Mattingly the interim manager screwed up and caused Broxton to leave the game, by stepping off the dirt of the mound, and then stepping on the dirt again to say something else to Broxton, thus making two trips to the mound. NO ONE saw it except Bochy and at least one of the umpires. The Dodgers scrambled to get Sherrill in and…..

    Ah, others covered it already. (grin)

    A team was born tonight! It has only been a couple of weeks since the Molina trade, but to me it seems this team came together tonight! Reminds me of the closeness of the 1989 team with the mix of veterans and young guns.

    The greatest move by Bochy in 4 years. I feared it was going to blow up in our face getting Broxton out of there with our recent history against the Dodgers and especially in LA!

    I guess Gringo is not going to be whining about lack of offense…

    Thanks Zum. I can honestly say I’ve never seen or heard of that happening. You gotta love baseball. You can watch it your whole life and still see shit you’ve never seen before.

    It couldn’t have happened to a better team!

    I’m sure Gringo will find something to beef about.

    For you fans of the Simpsons: “Don Mattingly hasn’t been this embarrassed since Mr. Burns kicked him off the Nuclear Plant Softball Team.”

    Only the Giants and Dodgers could come up with something like this.

    A lot of things will get talked about from this game, but I wanted to call attention to the guy who got that last rally going- Uribe. He absolutely flew down the line on that infield hit, and looking at the replay, I think he would have beat the throw even if it hadn’t bounced. It was a super effort from Uribe, who just willed himself to be safe.

    And the drilling of Kemp seemed to help turn the tide. The way Kemp postured on his walk down the line. The whole incident seemed to wake up the team. They weren’t competing before that, and then suddenly they were competing. Well, it helped when Paul dropped that fly. But everyone thought that ball was gone. Even Paul seemed mystified it didn’t leave the park.

    also a nod to to Renteria for a great at-bat against Buffet Broxton! Sandoval swinging on first pitch with bases loaded there in the 9th had me a little miffed…

  16. giant head said, on July 20, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    and those idiot Bastardos really helped us by having Kershaw plunk Rowand. That started the comeback…

    Offensive stats are climbing along with the victory totals. Giants just passed the Marlins tonight for 9th in the league in runs scored. Not long ago they were 12th. Also tonight the SF doubles machine~ Torrid Torres~ tied Jayson Werth for the league lead in two-baggers with 28. Werth has quite a few more ABs.

    52-42 record with 68 to go. I don’t see the team going mediocre on us now, but if they go flat and win half their games they finish at 86-76. Can’t see that happening. Say they win an extra four getting a 38-30 record over the rest of the season. That puts em at 90-72. But they already have won ten more than they have lost. Keeping that up they would go 40-28 to finish at 92-70. But i think they’re gonna hit my January prediction of 94-68 by going 42-26.

    Down by 5-1 and facing a tough young lefty, the Giants rallied twice while the Bullpen held, rescuing Timmy from a non-terrific night. That was HUGE. They scored 7 runs on 7 hits, drawing 5 walks to 4 for the LaBumbos. That was situational hitting at its best.

    Giants are finally running on all 8 cylinders. This team has jelled.

    I had to deal with one of my kids the last hour of the game. Did I miss anything?…
