A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

One Game at a Time

Posted in Uncategorized by eddacker on August 18, 2012

A good result last night and, with the dogers losing in extra innings to the bravess, Your San Francisco Giants are back in first place. We cannot look too far into the future even though it holds those same dogers and bravess. 

The near future is all we care about, and there is no sense looking at the past just now.
But of course we will.

The prognosticators have the Friars winning tonight’s game figuring Stults will outpitch our man Barry.

Zito-1-4 with a 4.93 ERA in nine career appearances at Petco Park. He is 4-2 with a 3.15 ERA against NL West teams this year and the lefty is 1-2 with a 7.06 ERA in his last four starts after going 3-1 with a 2.25 ERA in his previous five. Stults has recently started starting and has allowed one run in his past 13 innings. And he has won twice.

As my man yogi has said, ‘great hitting and vice versa’. We certainly saw the Giants do some great hitting last night and we have seen flashes of it all year (I am thinking StL). The current team can score them some runs. The Orange Friday fans last night were FANtastic it was hard to tell when the SD crowd was making noise. I have my peace pipe out and I am already thinking this is the rubber game. A win tonight should get us the sweep with our new ace going tomorrow who got his shit game-of-the-month out of the way against the nats.

The Flapper Nation has already pointed to the schedule as an advantage; especially these next 5 games. I do not think anyone anticipated a blow-out win at petco park being just the thing this team needed to heal from a surprise loss in the lineup. If Zito works it this evening (5:30 start btw) I know a sweep here and a series win in losenges would be the elixer to carry back home against the choppers from atlanta.

Yeah, it is ‘one game at a time’ and a series win is nice, but we are IN a pennant drive, we will want more and there are only 40 games to get it. Go Gigantes!

    I was going to say Chuck that i agree keeping the kids busy is a way to keep the kids out of harms way. Both Snarkettes are in girl scouts, their circle of friends in that is pretty good, the girls that stick with it into middle school are pretty scholarly and have their heads on straight. They’re always doing something outside or doing projects on the weekends. The camp activities throughout the year in various NorCal locations are really cool…

    Well, nice parenting stories. When I was young I always saw myself as having all daughters. That didn’t happen so it is heart warming to hear your stories here. Speaking of warm the UK broke 90 yesterday; hottest day of the year.
    AND speaking of music and dem young’ns, I felt really out of touch when, during the closing ceremonies, there were the current stars singing songs I had never heard and the athletes were all singing along, word for word. scary

    I always read the box scores when I wake up and then read the flap. I was concerned about Affeldt’s line, but get some more insight now. A good night’s rest for the team and then a day game (sweep?) Sunday.

    Peace, out

    Yeah, Snarkk, we did anything and everything to get the girls with kids that were at least as active and busy as they were. Soccer, softball, basketball, Brownies girl scouts. all that stuff. By HS, they picked one sport and stuck with that. None of the ones they played as kids though, weird enough. My son? 15 and indifferent . . .

    I think, for boys, 15 IS the age of indifference
