San Diego

You like pitching match ups? Today is the day for you. There are like 5 extremely interesting games today and if you’re playing DK, where you have to pick 2 pitchers, it’s going to be a very tough choice.

Bumgarner in SD is intriguing. Rea is no pushover, I expect this to be a low scoring game…….

The main question I have: Will my main man on the San Diego scene (San Dawg) be at any of the games…..

Regarding “our beloved Dubs….”….. not much else to say………

    Not a big Ken Rosenthal fan, I mean, he’s OK and all, but this article is pretty cool. Oooops. This isn’t Rosenthal. Which now makes sense.

    If someone already posted it, sorry.

    Regarding “our beloved Warriors,” tonight is not a game 7, so it isn’t a “Must Win,” but it is as damned close to a must win as you can get without it being a must win. To borrow a phrase from the late Al Davis “Just Win Baby!” GO WARRIORS!

    I know you guys are aware, as you are all such staunch hockey fans, but it was bad ass to see the Sharks shut-out St Louie, in St Louie, and knot the Western Conference Finals at a game apiece. Now they bring it all back to The Tank! GO TIBURONES!

    I’m not going to defend Bum’s onfield anger-moments, but his quote after the game came the closest I’ve ever seen to where he explains them. The quote was “I needed to get mad for a minute.” He has his own particular way to fire himself up, and it works for him. But I can see that it is kind of a frustration to Bochy. The look on Bochy’s face was like “why does this otherwise awesome pitcher have to have moments like this?” Fortunately they don’t happen every game, and fortunately, so far in his career, they’ve been pretty harmless. The only fear is that someday a batter is going to fully take on the challenge and rush the mound, and then there’s a possibility for injury. Greinke got a broken collarbone in one of those type of things. That’s Bochy’s concern.

      I just re-read what I wrote, and it sort of does sound like I’m defending Bum on this. But that wasn’t my intention. It’s a hard call. Every athlete does what they think they need to do to succeed. And I’m sure if Bum was on another team, I would be more harsh about it. When the player is helping to win championships for your team, he gets cut a little slack. But I’m concerned about somebody rushing the mound. So far, nobody’s looked at Paul Bunyan on the mound and wanted to take that on.

        They see those TV commercials of Bum chopping wood and moving cattle, and they’re like…. “Pass.”
