On Pace for 162-0

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 1, 2014

Now THAT was an Opening Day to savor (apologies to A’s fans reading this. 10 OD losses in a row? Ouch). Is it just me or did Kuip and Miller put a little bit extra into their calls?

It WAS a monster bomb, maybe they were just vibing off that. And it was the 9th inning. And it did complete a wild comeback.

Well, we didn’t field the ball particularly well and Petit was worthless. But this was a *never give up till the final out” game. Awesome way to start the season.

    Burns ties it!

    I don’t know how the home plate ump misses that call. Right in front of him, and wasn’t that quick of a play. Horrible umpiring. If you also look at slo mo of the first base ump, his right arm seems to start coming up to make an out call on the pickoff, then he flattens it out to call safe…

      Article says he got a second ring at the time. Now selling one. WTF?…

        Yeah, that is weird. . . . I;m sure he had to pay for it, right? LIke $25,000?

    Small sample size so far, but Morse? Meh…

    I still really like Perez, but he needs to get the fucking bat off his shoulder…if not, Bochy needs to bury one up his backside…

      Yeah, I didn’t get that. Taking two called third strikes in crucial situations.

      Cain looked very hittable tonight. That was a disturbing sight. Hopefully he finds his “stuff” in the next outing.

        But having said that, he kept them in the game, which is one of the main things you ask of a starter. The problem was he had to exit after 5 innings because of pitch-count. And the Giants middle relievers are a work in progress.

        He did eventually hit 93 mph. He’ll be solid as long as the 88-90 range doesn’t become the status quo.

    Agree about the called third strikes, one thing I truly hate to see. Why give the ump a chance to ring you up? Even worse with ducks on the pond. The IF is crummy they all know it and the rook SS just fell on his face chasing Hector’s pop up, Trumbo’s in LF, yada yada. Look at how many balls SF couldn’t handle night before.

    Gutierrez certainly didn’t look ready for prime time.
