A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

First Place in the Wild Card!

That feels pretty good, right? Ugh. You know it’s a tough times when I’m happy we don’t have to see Lincecum pitch in Philly……..

Krukow thinks we lost 2 of 3 to San Diego because we didn’t get the breaks and they did. That’s a crock, of course. Many times you make your own breaks, you force the issue. You make the plays. San Diego does all those things. We didn’t and we are lucky we didn’t get our asses swept this weekend…….

Time for Guillen to do his thing in that Philly band box. Everyone was trippin’ on him yesterday, and he definitely made a bonehead move and he disclosed that he’s  a slow runner at this point in his career. But he also had the best hit of any Giant yesterday, except Posey. We need him mashing the ball. Sabean didn’t trade for him so he could steal you a bag now and again………

Tues we see Zito V. Oswalt. Zito has pitched better against the Phillies than Oswalt has against the Giants. Cainer goes against Blanton on Wed and while Cain does own a 7.20 ERA (o-2) vs the Phillies I seem to remember one of his first starts was against them in their yard and they blasted him. He’s obviously a different pitcher today. Dirrrrrty takes on Hammels on Thurs, and again, Dirrrrrty has better numbers vs them than Hammels has vs us. All in all, I like the pitching match ups……

    We have 43 left to go. 21H, 22A. How many wins is it going to take to make the post-season. Notice I didn’t say “win the WC.” How many wins to play game 163? 67 W’s now: 25, 26, 27? I dunno, but it sure in the hell is more than I thought it would take before the season started. Hell, 6 wks. ago I didn’t think it’d take this many. I’ll take the middle number and say 26 more Ws, that makes us 93-69. If that shit isn’t enough, than I’ll know for sure that God is not a SF Giant fan.

    Jesus H. Fucking Christ.

    Dennis must be by now 8 beers into his 12 pack.

    I saw at ExtraBaggs a bunch of commenters all over Timmy about his hair. It’s the new trend of “when a player disappoints, point out his most obvious physical characteristic.” Pablo’s struggling, he’s overweight. Rowand’s struggling, he walks like Ron Cey. Schierholtz is struggling, he’s going bald.

      You’ve got the makings of a CSN Bay Area poll there, Zumie.

    Rohand isn’t struggling for 2 1/2 seasons becuz of the way he walks. It’s because he’s a highly overpaid journeyman who made his bones in a bandbox, and has a ridiculous batting stance and refuses to change it — and rarely goes oppo field….

    Yeah the silly hair issue. Reminds me of a previous generation getting pissed off in the Sixties about the hair issue. Then when the hair started falling out they were pissed about that! Really humans can be so dumb at times.
