National Beat Down Day

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 15, 2015

I’ll take Voggy and Cain, you take Strasburg and Scherzer. What kind of odds you give me that I go 2-0?

Nice, hot day here in the Bay. Get the ball up in the air and watch ‘er fly, high, HIGH.

After the first 2 games, it kinda feels like we’re playing with a little house money. Keep the pedal on the floor, there is no number of wins against the Nats and Williams that I would declare “too many.”

    Even though it’s the enemy, that was one of the greatest play of the year.

    Georgios the Greek has become a total bulldog. Stopped the bleeding in the 6th in quick fashion and then went through the middle of the Nats order in the 7th, dropping his ERA to 1.86. Could be he is fast becoming the go-to fireman this team has needed for decades it seems.

      I wonder if Kontos and Duffy share their needles…

        they don’t even have the same “nutrionist”

    Werth seems to have no interest in baseball. One of the worst contracts ever…

    Werth plays like he has Fibromyalgia…

    Duffy clearly creamed that one…

    Might not seem like good managing to us but I think bochy is much beloved by the SPs for allowing them a chance to work out of difficulty. After Duff made the first error last night it must have hurt to take Cain out and ultimately deprive him of a W.
    I wonder if there is an unspoken signal given by him from bench to the C that the SP has one more batter, or if it is relayed back by the C that he is done.

    Dang it, Duff continues to tee off on these guys. right now Blanco and Duff at top of the LU are raking, with pop.

    Buster Posey, when he’s locked in, has one of the best swings in recent memory, imo. Some of his HR swings resemble Mantle’s from the right side. imo. The lower body drive, the all in upper body from the lower body drop, etc. But Duffy’s got a helluva swing too, doesn’t he?

      Yeah, both guys, solid all-field approach. Panik, too. Blanco, this season, has bought into it.

      Posey leads team by far in singles. I was looking up total XBHs for the team and Belt and Craw were at the top and had 8-10 more than #28, but Posey had 90 some singles. Which is why he is batting .330 and the other 2 are 50 points behind him.

      Doesn’t K much either.

    Giants are indeed hanging tough in this tough August schedule. Too bad everyone we’re chasing is also winning. And in other news, Patriots beat the Seahawks 22-10. My goodness.

    When the Giants offense is rolling, even a lot of their outs are hard-hit.

    Peavy, when he’s pitching:

    * Exhibit #1 of why the games are played on the field, not on paper: Strasburg, Scherzer, and Gio. Giants 3 wins, Nats 0.

    * Tomlinson: Would someone please explain to me why Adrianza is even on this team, nevermind still getting starts.

    * Duffy: Pulling away from a somewhat crowded field of possible team MVPs for this fun season.
