Win Time

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 30, 2016

While Kaep sits and stares blankly ahead in his bold attempt to end oppression everywhere in America, we now turn our attention back to baseball. I was excited to see AZ with the worst VMI for hitters (by far) so Cueto should handle them no problem. Can we scratch out a few runs off one of our arch nemesis? That is an absolute toss up.

Two more days before *reinforcements* arrive. I always chuckle at that. Kruk loves to talk about *fresh arms* coming but they’ve been pitching all year, too, just in a different place. It gives Bochy more options i guess. But looking to our below average farm system to provide *reinforcements* at this critical juncture in the season is a big *lulz* in my book….

And, just because……

    If none of them can hit homers they ALL should be bunting runners over.

      Yeah well Chuck,
      Why even bunt when they can’t run now( Posey assorted injuries, Pagan hammy,Pence hammy)

    Nice fizzle out inning!
    Instead of Pagan on 3rd with 1 out and Posey up, ( sac fly maybe)we get jackshit with a DP!!

    Shit! So annoying how bad we play against the worst teams. Gonna cost us eventually.

    Giants left 9 on base.
    This Giants team is just really not very good….

    Pisser is just how Cueto completely lost it.

    Yeah, Tom, this team just isn’t *consistently* very good. They’ve got 1 month to get more gooder….

    Alright here goes:

    The Giants are paying Posey $20 mil to be their mvp and he is no matter how many or few HRs he hits.
    They ask him to do the toughest job and he does it without complaint and gets dinged up regularly.
    That job is to be smartest guy on the field at all times and be totally the field general—calling 120+ pitches a game, and reading his pitcher, the hitter, the ump and his defense, every single play all night.

    Meanwhile the other 7 guys are out there standing around most of the game in one spot scratching themselves til a ball gets hit and wondering what or who they are doing after it’s all over.
    Oh btw, he happens to be best in the entire game at what he does and has 3 rings to prove it.
    Along with .290s BA and second best slugging and OPS on the team, dang good offensive stats for any C.

    Would he be less dinged up and healthier at 1b or LF? Sure but that’s not what’s best for the team and guys playing positions like 1b (Belt in past) 3b 2b and the OF are the ones who have missed more time, and contributed less.

    What’s best for the team is something completely different—having the best guy possible for the job doing the toughest one on the field night in and night out.

      Agree, Willie. Of course would love to see more HRs, or at least a few more hit at key points in a game, the classic “clutch” HR, but he’ll never be Johnny Bench with that kind of power…. but he is still the best in the game at his position. More realistic look for more power might come from Pence, who’s been quite the silent power guy since his injury.

    So can this guy Tebow play?

    • snarkk said, on August 30, 2016 at 11:10 pm

      Plays the media…

    Romo apparently hurt his knee covering first base tonight. Sheezus, it’s a wonder some of these guys don’t hit the DL from injury sustained going into a stall to take a dump. Romo has been a ghost this season. He gone next year. Major roster shakeup needed in the off season…
