Hitting in Miami

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 9, 2016

That was a pretty epic headline I posted yesterday morning, eh?

I went back and looked up that 7 for 7 that Rennie Stennett dropped on the Cubs back in ’75. He led off, his team destroyed the Cubs 22-0. Not a good start for our former main man Rick Reuschel. The Giants beat the Braves that day, 7-6. Von Joshua led off but he only had 3 measly hits…….

In my opinion, Crawford’s Seven should go down as more legendary. Sure, Stennett did it in only 9 innings. But when you win 22-0 you are swinging free and easy. Every at bat Crawford took was pressure packed and nearly every time he came through with a hit. Plus, he played 14 innings and had to be tired as fuck. Yet still, he kept hitting. It was a historic, legendary performance. I’ll remember that game my whole life.

As you know, the Giants ended up signing Stennett to a deal that went down in infamy. He was making $450K a year, lol. Not even half a mil a year had everyone up in arms. How times have changed. Me thinks Rennie lika’d da coka. To say he didn’t perform on the field would be an understatement. He only played two years and disappeared after the ’81 season never to play again.

I’m not sure what that win will do for the season. Maybe they’ll get no bounce at all and this season will continue to spiral. But I do know what a loss would have done had we ended up losing after that great comeback. That would have devastated the season, no matter how the players would try to spin it afterwards…..

Thank God we won that game, lol.

      A reminder of how they’re just giving the division title away this season, it appears.

    Fuck. No longer alone in first. Hope the Giants wake the fuck up some time soon.

    How is it possible an entire squad craters at the plate like this for going on nearly a month? Is there something rotten in the clubhouse? Why did Bochy go to the hospital — is something going on with this squad we don’t know about?…

      Irregular heart beat is the word, but I think he just cannot stomach much more of this BS.

    I have been telling you all since this slide started that this team needs some adversity. Well, I think we have it in spades right now. Enough is enough. Time to get back to playing some clean winning baseball.
