Not Enough

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 12, 2017

Spam had a good game and Belt hit a rare bomb and yet we still lost. The Giants problem, I should say one of their problems, is that they don’t have enough guys who actual produce anything on a game to game basis. That sounds obvious as well as hard to measure. But tell me I’m wrong. Every single game the box score is filled with a bunch of zeros and ones across all categories.

Take a look at this:

That’s Billy Ham’s last 11 games. He’s scored at least one run in 11 games in a row. That is called producing. I know this is a hard concept to process for a Giants fan since we don’t have anyone who does this. Do we have a guy on our team who has scored a run in even 3 games in a row? Maybe Posey when he hit 3 bombs in a row in NY? That has to be the only one. Ham has scored in ELEVEN straight. You can’t win games if you don’t score runs. That is fact.

So blame last night on Strickland or whoever. The easiest thing in the world to do is find a player on this team to dislike. They are literally everywhere. We are going to keep having maddening games like last night, where one or 2 guys do ok, the rest stink and we finally lose because of two simple words:

We Suck.

    Mike mrsprtdude in huntington beach:)
    Hamilton has 13 rbi’s in addition to his runs. Posey had 8. hamilton would be most productive hitter on the Giants by a mile!

      HB. Just up the road, relatively speaking.

    Gorkys just needs to go away.

    • sandog said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:21 am

      I wonder if he is at a point where he actually dreads stepping into the batter’s box and wishes the Giants would DFA him and put him out of his misery. I’m serious.

      And what kind of name is Gorkys?
      Sounds like a Puerto Rican member of the Little Rascals…

    Posey with only 8 ribbies? He’s hitting .352. Says something about a) the lack of hitting ahead of him, and/or b) the timeliness of his hits….

    Ok, NOW Belt can send everyone home.

    Blade in Saigon. Ha.

    • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:35 am

      50 years ago every evening newscast started with the words “In Saigon”…

    Belt’s gotta be Belt.

    • zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:28 am

      He’s going to out-ump the replacement ump in the 16th inning.

    Every 10 days or so Gearrin looks unhittable…

  8. zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:33 am

    Span the frying pan on defense.

  9. djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:33 am

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Span was distracted by a seagull…

    One pitch hit and hurt both the batter and the catcher. Don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.

  11. Macdog said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:38 am

    If I’m a Reds batter, I’d be scared shitless facing Gearrin.

    • zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:39 am

      He’s like me pitching a wiffleball.

    • sandog said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:40 am

      0-2 and he almost nailed that guy right in the shin with a fastball!

  12. djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:39 am

    When did the expression “sleeping late” change over to “sleeping in”?
    It makes no sense.
    Shit like that drives me fuckin’ nuts…

  13. zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:40 am

    The appeal of Stephen A. Smith is lost on me.

    • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:42 am

      It’s probably mutual…

    • zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:47 am

      Sweet!

  14. Macdog said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:43 am

    Buster tossing his helmet, raising both arms in jubilation — put it in the archives. Epic. And eerie. Never saw AT&T so empty. Like minor leagues, you hear everyone. That celebration at the plate was worth it all. G’night, girls.

  19. pawliekokonuts said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:53 am

    The Giants have still not won 2 in a row, if I’m not mistaken. I hope tomorrow’s the day. I mean today.

  20. zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:57 am

    That was a tape-measure shot. I wonder what the distance was.

  21. eddacker said, on May 13, 2017 at 1:30 am

    What a game, I am exhaust-edd. The team that scored big runage all over us last week has been held to a .215 era this week. Win the series tomorrow with moore – oh.
