A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Breaking Down Opening Day…….

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 6, 2012

Pagan was underwhelming. I know he had the double but he fucked up multiple times at the plate tonight in critical situations.

Pablo looks fat to me. Not as fat as he did at the end of 2010 but not good. I support muscle as weight but I can look at him and see that he’s not what he was last year. Having said that, his double in the 9th was brilliant. He tried an HR bomb swing on the first pitch. When that didn’t work he easily broke down Putz’ plan for him and ended it by blasting a double the other way. He didn’t used to do that. If he can somehow keep his weight under control (and I think he doesn’t have a pound to spare right now) then I think he will have a fantastic year………

Timmy sucked tonight. You can’t give up 3 runs in the first inning and expect to give your team a chance to compete. He rallied it together and had some nice strikeouts but that’s what the D-backs do, they strike out a lot. Couple the sh!t first inning with the ass up-face down in the bottom of the 6th and you have an opening day start for your ace that qualifies as *bad* and maybe worse.Unacceptable for Mr. 40+ Million Dollar/2Year Guy……..

Crawford’s error was horrible, a bad thumb isn’t an excuse for missing that…….

Posey can’t do that 2-0 with the game on the line……

And Belt looked beaten most of the night…….

Blanco. I like Blanco……..

And you can’t shake a stick at Melky and not be down with that cat. And remember, if you take away the Pagan double/Melky Bomb then all you have through 6 is the Crawford ground out to short stop to score a run. And that’s what last year was all about all year every fucking inning.

They battled today, and I enjoyed the game……….

    A’s just closed it to 8-7 on a Cespedes Bomb. A 2-0 fastball right down broadway. This kid has power and skills but all he seems to do is swing as hard as he can and he kills fastballs. Stop throwing those and he will swing and miss a lot this year……

    Relief pitchers for Seattle are ruining King Felix’s potential win (yes, he is on my FL team . . . sigh).

    The descriptions of Cespedes’ hitting approach could easily apply to Pill. He is another Eugenio Velez.

    More interesting players at Fesno than in a long time-Kieschnick, Peguero, TODD LINDEN ( yeah yeah, someone mentioned it), Arias, Culberson, Noonan, Gillaspie,Correa, Kontos, Hembree…
    At Richmond: Brown, Adrianza, Joseph, Dominguez…not much in pitching- Bruce’s son ( don’t laugh, the kid is a legit prospect), and a couple decent pitching prospects- Chris Heston and Bochy..
    Brown is hot-if he keeps it up a month or so, don’t be surprised to see him in CF here.
    Good Night.
