A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Beaten By Bullshit

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 21, 2015

As last off season progressed and the Padres added player after player, I predicted that it would blow up in their collective face and they’d be dead in the water by July. And that has come to pass.

Unfortunately, when we play these fucks they look like the team they had hoped they’d have when originally assembled.

The reality about the Giants is this: we don’t have the pitching to get to the post season. Our starting pitching is paper thin, comprised mostly of a coterie of 4’s and 5’s. Our relief core is a shell of what it once was.

I’m not sure there are enough bullets in Sabean’s trade holster to fix all of this……


and tonight, we have to face The Cuban Alphabet. Could be a loooooong game.

    Maxwell LOOKS like a baseball star.

    (Called it.) Arias being peacemaker like Willie Mays to Roseboro / Marichal.

    Am I childish or immoral to be slightly disappointed there was no fight?

    Well, don’t know wtf Kelly is barking at. He’s another little padre bitch.

    Fuck these guys. They walked Blanco to get to Hector. He can flip his bat. Kelly had 3 shots to drill him and didn’t. Total puss move.

    Can we clone Heston 3X, and call it a playoff run?…

    I can do without this stupid “don’t show me up” BS. Hector flipped his bat a little. A little. Big deal. The pitcher throws gum at him? Then they try to hit him his next AB? Total bush league. A bat flip is taboo, yet the ubiquitous crazy, over-the-top walk off celebration is NOT the subject of retaliation the next day? I don’t get it…

    Missed a few days with my daughter finally back from a couple years of adventure in South America and, hey, the Belt ragging is still going on! Excellent.

    Here are some Belt stats coming into the game tonight:

    Runners on base while he is batting: 204, Avg Runners on base with 333 PAS:195
    Runners in Scoring Position: Avg. .311 OBP .369 . SP 473 OPS .842

    Here are Duffy’s:
    Runners on base: 214, Avg Runners on base with 302 PAs:177
    Runners in Scoring Position: .355 .405 .500 .905


    Runners on base: 232, Avg Runners on base with 350 PAs:204
    Runners in Scoring Position: ..333 .400 .529 .929

    RBIs are an effect, an outgrowth of more fundamental stats. Both Duffy and Crawford have benefitted from having a lot of runners on base, they’ve hit extraordinarily well with RISP so far this year, and they are having really fine seasons in general.

    Hitting with RISP is not a talent, and RBIs measure absolutely nothing intrinsic about a player’s offensive play that isn’t captured in OPS. Take a look at any player’s stats over a few seasons or career and you’ll see that the RISP numbers are basically the same as their overall stats.
