Sunday Funday

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 4, 2016

I have no idea how websites determine the % chance that a team will make the post season but I checked a few different sites and they all seem to come in at 85% for the Giants. I get it, the wild card and all. They must be counting the play-in game which is really what it is. But for a team with the worst record in mlb since the break, for a team that seems to not be able to ever put good pitching and timely hitting together in a single game, that seems like a pretty high percentage, no?

Cueto today and he has become as confounding as his delivery. I wouldn’t pretend to know in a million  years how he’ll do today. My guess would be awful. Unless of course we aren’t hitting Lackey at all, then I think he’ll be lights out……

    Loo, agree with your comment about Posey. The 1 game the Giants won in Chicagoland might have hinged on the play we doubled off Rizzo at 2nd base. Watch the replay of that… Posey, ever the vigilant field captain, saw the whole thing unfolding and ran up the line to cover 3rd base, which resulted in Rizzo getting caught off second. Really too bad he’s hurting, which is obviously hurting his offense, but his defense is still stellar.

      No doubt – and the way he studies every hitter and puts so much thought into calling every pitch.
      Never seen anything like it…

    Not sure I’m watching the same games. Posey’s throw to 3rd was high in the 2nd game that allowed winning run to score. Today his not blocking Casilla ball in the dirt allowed the tying run to get to 3rd. Cost us the game ultimately. Not an easy play, but one a elite defender makes….I know he calls a great game, and I’m not saying he is bad, just not elite anything right now…

      Mrsprtdude…Not making excuses for Buster but 1st off he’s not getting any help from his pitchers holding runners close, most runners can walk to 2nd or 3rd.
      Buster’s also banged up and got dinged up more yesterday when that punk Addison Russell hit his hand twice with his bat on swings( accidental are not?) right before that pass ball which could of affected him.

        Mrsprtdude continues to blame Posey for that steal of third when clearly Fowler got a huge jump off the pitcher and Posey had no chance on that play. The throw was high but it didn’t matter.
