A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Breakdown in The Plan

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 10, 2011

So I think we all know “The Plan” by now. Have the pitchers pitch lights out and have 1 of our non-pitchers get a timely hit in the 7th inning on to win the game for us. It just didn’t happen last night. But despite our disgustingly impotent offense, I think we all have confidence that The Plan will get executed successfully more often than not…..

I didn’t share Kruk and Kuip’s love-fest over El Presidente’s 3rd gunned down runner of the year. He needs to do that consistently. If he’s not going to hit at all he’s got to be able to at least stop opposing runners from running wild on him. Pudge Rodriguez wouldn’t be my first choice but if he’s the only one available I will take him on the cheap since ANYONE would upgrade that position. “ABEP” is the way to look at this…….

Voggy’s turn to shut down the opposition. He’s facing “T-Wood” and this guy has been awful this year. Still, I fully expect we are going to have to scratch out a single run in the 7th inning or later to beat him. Pretty much every pitcher who goes against us is going to be lights out this year…….

    Dusty does not manage pitchers particularly well. He called the IP to Cody to get Wilson out of the game and Nate made the move backfire. Doesn’t he know this guy can be dynamite in the late innings? Oh well, we win. Big credit goes to another incredibly gutsy outing from the Little Birdie that Could. With almost nothing behind him offensively Vogelsong held off the powerful Reds offense on two runs through a much contested six innings of work. One could say that he was outpitched by Wood, but that would not be entirely fair as they were facing two totally different lineups.

    Credit again to an incredible bit of BP work by Affeldt, Romo and the ultimate game winner, Wilson. The first two struck out five of the six batters they faced and the Drama Queen gave up a single and then promptly induced a DP. Torres drew the walk to ultimately score the winning run and this time Burriss bunted successfully, sacrificing Andres to second.

    Most amazing thing about the game with all its frustrations and the heartbreak injury to Sanchez was the fact that the Giants held on and won ~ in most dramatic fashion with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth with Nate going great with his walkoff single.

    Both managers made the right moves, Baker to force Bochy’s hand to take out his closer in hopes that it would go to extra innings, and Bochy going for the win. Bochy won.

    Bill Hall to the rescue? No glove and some pop at 2B. Who we gonna p/u tomorrow after we lose another one to the DL today?

    Hall’s not horrible in the field. He’s versatile. The real question is how the fuck the Giants came swooping and grabbed him last night, when they suddenly needed someone like him. The Orioles, Red Sox, et al. have been circling him all week. Sabean wins again. No downside to the $300,000 deal. (Did Hall really hit 35 HRs in 2006? Pretty late in the decade for a number like that from a guy like him. . . .)
