A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Who’s better? 2010 or 2012?

Posted in Uncategorized by twinfan1 on September 11, 2012

And screw jinxes, as Craig said: no such thing.We’re going to the playoffs as the West champs. And forget last night.

Torres vs. Pagan- remember, this is the 2010 Vungo. Angel has the edge in BA, OBP is about even, and Angel will have a slight edge in SB. Andres gets the nod in  power and defense. These are small differences by and large. This is close and in the interest of amity and goodwill and all that, I’m calling this one even.

Fruckie vs. Scooter- because of the way he’s played since we got him, the temptation is to go with Marco. But Freddie was just too good all year and his defense gives him the nod, IMO.

Panda vs. Uribe- another tight one. The injuries have taken a toll on Pablo this year. Have to go with Juan.

Buster vs. Buster: the rookie of the year vs. one of the MVP favorites. This year’s Buster is the guy.

Pence vs. Ross- remember with all of these- the postseason performance in 2010 doesn’t count. I’m going with Hunter.

Belt vs. Huff- it may not have been a “career year”, as he had some other good ones, but Aubrey was a big part of the heart and soul of that 2010 team. Such a shame that he’ll be remembered for what followed. But he’s the man in this comparison.

Burrell vs. the Field- The Bat takes it.

Renteria vs. Mudbug- Brandon has been so spectacular in the field, it has to be him. And he’s hitting about 50 points more than someone posting as me thought he would. Crawford.

So I’m calling 4 positions to the 2010 squad, 3 to 2012, and one even.  But these aren’t huge edges either way. Even with Burrell, if it’s Blanco, his defense and speed narrow the gap.

Bench: even with Hector’s big advantage over Whitey, have to go with the 2010 group headed by Ishi, Nate, and Pablo.

Pitching: have to be honest. Huge advantage to the 2010 staff. Virtually everyone who’s still here was better then, save MadBum. And Wilson was dominant.

Conclusion: we’ll probably hit better than in 2010 and we will absolutely have to. Defense could be crucial- we’re better now. But we’ll face a much better team than Atlanta in the NLDS. No prediction yet, but this will be a tough go. But I say: Let’s do it again!

    I told Mrs. Snarkk 2 hours ago this thing would probably end 8-7, with “who knows” being the winner.
    I was off one run on each side. Coors is friggin crazy.
    Gyros gain 2 on the magic number. Sweet…

    Belt, POTG, I think with 4 RBIs tonight, including the dinger. He’s proving he belongs…

      Bum’s dinger set the stage IMO.

        What a wild ride it’s been for the Brandons this season. And they’re going to the playoffs. Very cool.

    The end of the Dodger game; shades of Wilson striking out Howard to end the NLCS. Looked like the same pitch, same location.

    Tonight’s game was brought to you by Winning Ugly.

    Another comeback win tonite. Very good vibe going on for that. But, the fact remains that the starting pitching is dragging its ass…

    The Dodgers shut-out again. Their Big 4 are the Puny 4.

    I really miss being able to blog in real time. This is a great place for SFGs fans. I think I will go have some lunch. Don’t wait up for me.
