Impending Doom

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 4, 2017

I was going to get up early and start worrying about which reliever will be the one to blow tonight’s lead but then I realized that Cueto hasn’t hit a home run in his entire 9 year career. Even worse, he’s lugging around a career .108 batting average.

So how in the hell are we supposed to score any runs????

I was actually surprised at how quickly Melancon fell apart on Monday. He couldn’t put the weakest of hitters away. That’s a really bad sign. And not totally surprising. What happened the last time the Giants didn’t have a closer and they panicked and went and got one? I can barely type his name…Ar…man….duh nevermind……

No worries, maybe Cueto hits 2 bombs and throws a complete game.:)

Either that or re-read the headline….

    This is amusing and actually interesting, on Bum’s HR stroke…

    Nice to see Pads get to .500 vs. LA.
    Giants knock out another AZ SP early, not a good sign for DBax.
    Drew Stubbs, lol. great name terrible player. Remember Franklin Stubbs?

      Agree on the great name for Drew Stubbs, and yep, I remember Franklin. He sucked, too. Had maybe one good year with the bambinos…

    Nice tidy win last night. Cueto wasn’t dominant, but I think 4 ER over five IP in Zona is a respectable line (and he gets kudos for knocking in a run).

    Gorkys had a night with four RBI, but I think we all know that is not sustainable, but you take it where you can get it.

    I am still not 100% confident on the bullpen, but four relievers, four IP, no ER…will take that all day, every day, and twice on Sundays.

    Will be interesting to hear the news on Span. It sucks that the same hip is giving him problems, as he had a nice spring and was looking good both at the plate and in the field.

    ST numbers:.305, .369, .475, .844 with two bombs.

    RS numbers (limited, but WTF): .400, .400, .400, .800.

    Given this, and Span’s history since we signed him, I would make a run at Pagan. As I mentioned earlier, he is seeking a major league deal in the 5m range. Probably more than the Giants want to spend, but he sure would provide some insurance and would definitely be the best 4th OF option given the current OF situation.

    I know not many hear followed the WBC, but Pagan looked pretty damned good playing for Puerto Rico:

    .324, .371, .286, .696 with three doubles, and a couple of RRIs.
