A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Four Guys Who Won’t Be Starting For Us For Long

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 1, 2011

For this offense to get better it’s not just about who Sabean is going to add but rather who he’s going to subtract……

Eli Whiteside is not a starting MLB catcher. That hit and run last night was actually the best piece of hitting I’ve ever seen him do. The subsequent 3 strike outs reminded me of who he is. He’s got 2 hits since Buster went down (and if they don’t do that hit and run last night, he’d still be stuck on 1…..

Miguel Tejada: Miggy doesn’t even seem to try to drive the ball anymore. Every hit, ever out, seems to be some type of ground ball to/through the infield. Even his hard hit balls don’t seem to get much carry on them. And he seems super tentative on defense, reacting defensively instead of just reacting naturally. It’s hard to watch him play baseball right now.

Pat Burrell: This is the side of Bochy I still don’t get. On his pre-game show he was saying that since he was giving Huff a rest he had to have a clean up guy in the 4 spot and that’s why he wrote Burrell in there. But anyone can see that Burrell is done. What his baseball card says is of no consequence anymore. At BEST he’s going to work a walk, which he did twice last night. Is that what Bochy was looking for from the 4 hole?

Aubry Huff: This is a tough one to write but I think Huff’s 1 on/1 off pattern is in his head. We’re 2 months into the season and he’s still scuffling hard. I know how much money he’s making but Rowand makes more and he finally had to take a seat. At the very least, Bochy has to stop batting him 4th……

Tough game for Vogelsong. He’s now 3rd in the NL in ERA behind Jurrgins and Josh Johnson. His control wasn’t there but he gutted through 5 innings against a tough offensive team in their yard. We had a rare bullpen meltdown, it happens. I wonder when the National media guys are going to latch on to this story? Typical troll writers, they’ve got no problem writing a million stories about Zito’s failures but as soon as an amazing, uplifting story like this replaces Zito’s failures those National writers are nowhere to be seen. This is a great story, someone at SI should be writing about it……….

    The Heat will win the NBA title in a cake-walk now. Nowitzki’s got a torn tendon in a finger.

    Overlooked hero of the game: Santiago Casilla. Situation was dire in the bottom of the 7th as the Cardinals scored a pair, regained the lead and then put guys on against Timmy with only one out. Game could have gotten away right there as Casilla went 0-3 against Berkman with no place to put him. He must have a sucker pitch, cause Lance promptly swung at it, promptly GDP. Inning over. Game not out of reach.

      Nicely turned DP by the rook. He’s off to a great start.
