A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Taming the Dirrrrrrty Snakes

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 15, 2011

So I really nailed that Pablo prediction, didn’t I? He was fabulous. He doesn’t look like he’s put on any weight at all. And that 10 pitch at bat was incredibly welcomed. In fact, I was surprised at how patient the entire team was. Of course, Nate didn’t get it going till his hit in the 7th inning but that’s nothing out of the ordinary. Pablo hit the ground running and the team played inspired by his return. It’s nice that the offense finally got some good news for once….

I was unimpressed with the AZ starting pitcher that Murph and Mac were drooling over. He throws WAY too many change ups and made it easy for our guys to drop high pitch count at bats on him……

And I don’t think Cain pitched as badly as everyone is saying. He had that one dumb pitch to Montero but otherwise I thought he threw the ball really well……

    Nice team effort to cool off the upstarts. Do hope the dbacks stick around just to make it interesting.

      B.W. will keep it interesting all by his lonesome.

    Rowand’s play in the corner is one of the great plays of the season.

      He gets mocked for the nickname, but whatever his faults, he really is a “Gamer”..

    Stix, you have to give MLB a little more credit than that. They don’t allow a closer to create his own save opportunity. They wouldn’t have allowed a loop-hole like that.

    Looks like I missed a great game by our world series champions. Like the Klingons say: “weak humans need sleep”
    saw this on the mlb blog:
    Marlins are 3-17 since Buster’s injury
    not that I am trying to keep the controversy going

      Buster’s injury hit a lot of mlb people — players and execs — hard. But not the likes of Selig, or Sandy Alderson, or Lew Wolff. To them, it’s an economic thing. Giants will draw a certain percentage less on the road, now, with Buster gone. They got their bean counters working OT to figure out how they could hedge, mitigate, or, maybe even (given the perverse incentives of revenue sharing) capitialize on those losses. Then they got their bean counters working on what it will mean to them if Buster comes back strong, or slow, or fast, or in between, . . . etc.
