    Time to end Babs night.

  2. DJLoo said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Fuck yeah! A little pride! Get mad, dammit! We’re the fuckin’ World Champs!

    That may have been Huff’s best AB of the season, being down 0-2 and then drawing the walk. Set up Buster just nice.

  4. xootsuit said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Last time up Pablo hit a breaking ball down and in and pulled it for a double. So Billingsley tries to throw the same pitch, again, next AB? They must figure the first time was a fluke.

  5. Flavor said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    I am fucking LOVING these at bats tonight.

  6. Flavor said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    and Pablo and Franchez both got completely fucked on those balls that got called strikes……

  7. snarkk said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    My imagination, or has the ball and strike calling so far this season been particularly more foul smelling than usual?…

  8. DJLoo said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    Yikes, what an 0-2 mistake.

  9. unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Mota was very money there . . .

  10. zumarust said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Miles to go in this ballgame!

  11. zumarust said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    A lot of “grinder” at-bats from both teams tonight.

  12. xootsuit said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Somebody in the organization has decided Belt will be a stud, and whoever that is, he has a lot of power. This business about maybe playing Belt in RF underscores the faith in his bat. Earlier today, after I jumped into a brief discussion about Matt Williams, I did some googling. Turns out Al Rosen was the Giants scout who saw Williams at UNLV and decided that he was the real deal. Luckily for Williams, Rosen was GM soon thereafter. Something like that is happening to Belt. He has a godfather here.

    • unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:06 pm

      Based on what, Xoot? Do you just like to read yourself? Belt played some LF and RF in the minors. They want to see if that’s is an option here, because Huff is butchering it out there and Ross still isn’t back. If he keeps scuffling, he’s going down.

      Lucky for Williams? Seriously? He was jerked around for 2 years between AAA and the big league team. He eventually earned his way on to the team. You think Rosen was pulling strings?

      Right.

  13. James said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    It seems Belt has not taken a called strike tonight and has swung exclusively at pitches in the zone.

  14. stixwiz said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    Affeldt is fast becoming another case of overpaid help.

    • twinfan said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:52 pm

      He’s given up two runs already, shit can him…

      • stixwiz said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:08 pm

        Affeldt’s primary value is as a situational loogie. A full inning may be a bit much to ask.

  15. snarkk said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    Well, Affeldt gave a good speech the other day…

  16. twinfan said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    I don’t buy that someone tells Bochy who to play. If he could sit Buster in late 2009 he can do what he wants with Belt..

    • xootsuit said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:00 pm

      The Giants were out of the running in Sept. 2009 when Buster came up. No big deal. The push to get Belt ABs at the start of the season seems obvious. I’m not saying Belt’s advocates are wrong, just that they’re there, pushing hard because they’ve seen something specific. Maybe Bochy is the reason. Rosen watched Matt W. for a few innings at a UNLV game and said, “I’ve seen enough. That’s the guy.” (I’m paraphrasing.) Somebody thinks Belt’s the guy,l otherwise he’d be on the bench and Nate would be starting in RF.

      • unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:28 pm

        If Williams didn’t have the talent and drive, he wouldn’t have made it. Whether Rosen was behind him or not. He certainly went through his share of adversity.

        I don’t think there;s much more to it than they are trying to get the best team on the field as they can. They think Schierholtz in RF takes away from the offense.

        Or maybe it’s aliens. Both are wild speculation.

  17. snarkk said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    The Gamer, En Fuego? What is this, Mayan 2012 come early?…

  18. xootsuit said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    Fucking Rowand. Why is he in the game?

    • unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:11 pm

      Because Torres is hurt.

      • twinfan said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:20 pm

        He was fucking with you, Chucklet…

      • unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:29 pm

        Duh . . .

      • unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:31 pm

        Shit, Mike. I may be an idiiot but I’m not stupid.

        Xootie thinks he’s being cute because Snarkk and I gave Aaron some shit earlier.

  19. willied said, on April 12, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    battle of the pens is going to be an adventure. that last guy made Casilla look like Maddux. Now another ball way in the dirt for the run.
    Where does Affeldt currently sit in the LHP rankings?

  20. stixwiz said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    Sweeeeet job by Romo. He’s won that setup job fair and square. Now let’s score a bunch of runs. Drama Queen likely to pitch the 9th.

  21. unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    That last pitch was scary. Called strike 3, but criminy, it looks like a beach ball.

    • James said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:23 pm

      You’ll have your fears confirmed once every 11 innings or so.

  22. snarkk said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    Back to torture. I like it…

  23. unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    No muss no fuss. 3 k’s for BW. Sweeet

  24. willied said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    unhittable stuff, to all 3 guys. Not a good sign for the rest of the league. Nicely done, comeback W.

  25. willied said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    Affeldt gets the W, right? along with a blown save?

  26. stixwiz said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    Guess what the Drama Queen needed was a one-run lead to protect in the 9th. Reverts to form. Whew! (Wilson Helps Energizing Win!)

  27. twinfan said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    I ‘d give POTG to Mota. A hit there and it’s game over.

  28. unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Buster with the big night. 3 hits and nailing Kemp at 3rd . . .

  29. unca chuck said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Except for the one laugher, the wins are comebacks. . .

    Torture x 2 . . .

  30. twinfan said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    Nope. Mota gets it. But look at today’s POTD. Loo must pay Flavor. No way you can trust Flavor’s judgment.It’s Mota or Rowand..

  31. stixwiz said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    This was a refreshing win. Rally from a 3-run dip. Immediately afterwards. Tie in the next inning. Go ahead. Get tied up. Rally again. Hold. Win. This will put some lead in those pencils. Betcha Drrrrty’s got a grin on.

  32. snarkk said, on April 12, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    POTG — Rohand. Gamer knocked in a run, scored early go ahead run, then tripled to right center and scored winning run on the passed ball. I don’t know what tonic he’s taking, but I hope he keeps taking it…

  33. zumarust said, on April 13, 2011 at 12:48 am

    Wilson had absolutely nasty stuff tonight. All his pitches had movement. His fastball was moving late, and was practically unhittable. And he knew it. He didn’t nibble. When he has stuff like that, he just fires it in there with confidence.
