A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Nothing to See Here; Move Along, People

Posted in Uncategorized by pawliekokonuts on June 20, 2012

How did you watch the game? Maybe “watch” is the wrong word for this unwatchable swatch of whatchamacallit. (Call it “dreck”?)

Via MLB.com I followed it for a while. I *heard* the unexciting and so-laid-back, SoCal Angels announcers.

I unminimized my window every now and then only to *see* Mr. SoCal Himself, Barry Zito, getting clobbered or to *see* Senor Sandoval make a nifty play and then have Bruce Bochy argue the safe call or to see Brandon Belt take a called third strike with runners at the corners or to *hear* — you can just go by the crowd sounds — George Fecking Kontos give up a blast and then wincingly *see* Angel-ic Pagan devilishly misplay that blast, and then the unwatchable Giants were down 9-1 and it was time for a change of venue, i.e., BED.

WTF is a Kontos?

When did we bring him up?

This is a terrible way to go to bed, I mused, unamusingly.

I went to bed unaroused by the pornography of ineptitude — KNOWING I was committed to blog about the game the next morning, holding on to the sliver of a thread of a ghost of an irrational psychotic fugue delusion of a dream of a chance that I would wake up and discover that the GIANTS WIN! GIANTS WIN! GIANTS WIN! 10-9.

No such luck.

    Snarkk is right in that the Angels can pitch- they’re right with us stat wise. It’s been rough tonight but we hit the best LHer in the AL pretty well last night and hit well Monday as well…

    At least the Fucking A’s are leading the Bums 4-1 in the 9th.

    WTF…back-to-back Jacks…Get Loux’s ass outta there.

    This team misses Mota.

      I agree, Denny…

      Except for this outing from Loux, George and Shane had been every bit as good as Mota, who I loved. Loux had a 1.35 ERA coming in, Kontos is 1.59. We’ll see going forward, but they’ve been great.

    Strictly speaking, I’d say this isn’t going well.

      It’s his ninth outing and his first stinker. ( he did give up 2 in 3 innings once) Give the dude a break.

    Tonight—Loux—kinda—Soux

    Bums lost again…another lost opportunity to gain a game.

      Sort of a glass half empty post there, chi (gay-ass-smiley-face)

      • chipower9 said, on June 20, 2012 at 9:47 pm

        Actually, the fucking glass is empty…because I just threw the motherfucker against the wall. But gee, I sure feel better.

    • twinfan1 said, on June 20, 2012 at 9:41 pm

      Or they (Bums) lost an opportunity to stretch their lead.

  9. twinfan1 said, on June 20, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    As things have gone with Tim and Zito, if they switched roles with Loux and Kontos, it’s the long relief that would suffer.

  10. TedSpe said, on June 20, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Funny. Wilson just did a Don Knotts double-take

  11. TedSpe said, on June 20, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    Ballgame 2 out of 3 Angels

  12. chipower9 said, on June 20, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Two series losses in a row. You have to go back quite a ways for that to have happened this year.
