A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

When 0, 1, 2 and 3 Just Isn’t Enough

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 5, 2013

See if any of you can guess what these numbers are:

2, 4, 1, 0, 3, 3, 2, 0, 1, 3, 9, 2, 4, 1, 3

I’m assuming the 9 gave it away. That was that glorious, bountiful windfall that our pathetic offense gifts us once a month or so. I should go back and look up how many times our O has scored 9 or more this year but I’m on a patchwork system up here in the mountains and it would take too long and either underwhelm me or piss me off so…..skip it.

In July we scored the fewest runs in the major leagues (78). Detroit, the team we swept in the WS last year, scored 153. I wonder who would sweep who now. Anyway, that’s how July went. In June we scored the 2nd fewest runs in the major leagues (90). So when Bochy says the offense is in a rut he needs to re-frame that to something more encompassing. When you’re going on your 3rd month of sucking and failing at the plate it effects everything and can easily be pointed to as the reason this season went into the dumpster so early and so spectacularly…….

And now we get to look forward to a change at lead off. Hmmmm, that only took going on 3 months…. “We are not getting any production from our lead off hitters,” Bochy declared.

Just the lead off hitters, Skip?

    Wow, we knew the Brewers were bad, but this is ridiculous. They’re handing it to us…

    Blanco’s living up to his name. Wow, what the fuck was that? Bad call. Oh well, I’ll take it. 2 errors.

    We’re up 4-1 in the 9th?
    Somebody must have lit a cathedral full of votive candles. Whoever it was, thanx…

    Blade,
    Zulu- ’64; Zulu Dawn- ’79. I was surprised at the years on those. I thought they were both later.

    francouer has had two big hits for us and a huge throw. roger is now and will continue to get his time. bochy phit kiecshnick for francouer as well, with great results.

      I don’t disagree, great result. But, Francouer is gone Oct 1, and Kieschnick needs to face clutch situations. Why not now?…

    Alright. They still aren’t scoring much without gifts by the other team. But, the quality of overall play has improved. Dat’s nice. And, Belt has some mojo going. Schlaf gut, Flappers…

    Good game, on balance, as they say. Just fucking put some wins in the win column.

    Nice to see the Gmen win one. Now take me higher . . .

    A win at home! How novel. It would be nice if the Giants finish strong.
