Mac Back Back Back!

Shocker, we hit 3 home runs and won easily. Like it or not, this is how you win games in today’s baseball world. Hitting singles, taking walks, having dudes loiter around on the bases….that’s not how it’s done anymore. Of course you need pitching too. We got that and an 8-1 drubbing was the outcome.

Willy hit a ball 434 feet. I wonder how many balls Hunter Pence would have to hit and string together before they equaled 434 feet?

It’s still only April but the team is beginning to evolve. And Bum could be back by early June?

It would be unwise to give up on this team….

    17 SOs, total. Kuiper somehow manages to bury that fact in his summary. What the fuck? That’s essentially 2 SOs per inning, all game long. (Not since 1959 vs. Koufax, tweets Baggs.)

      Inspired a generation of punk rockers.

        “The hairstyle has been in existence in many parts of the world for millennia. For instance, the Clonycavan Man, a 2000-year-old male bog body discovered near Dublin in 2003, was found to be wearing a mohawk styled with plant oil and pine resin.” W.

    MLB.com is cranking out the no-hitter facts. The Red Sox are the best winning pct. team of all time to be no-hit, replacing the ’03 Giants, who were no-hit by Millwood. Who the heck remembers that no-hitter?

    • djloo27 said, on April 21, 2018 at 9:41 pm

      I do. It was a Sunday afternoon I think. I had just been able to buy the MLB package for the first time..

    • Macdog said, on April 21, 2018 at 9:45 pm

      I was at that no-hitter.

    • zumiee said, on April 21, 2018 at 9:57 pm

      Very impressive, you two. I have absolutely no memory of it.

      • sandog said, on April 21, 2018 at 9:59 pm

        I remember it. Not vividly, but I remember it.

    Speaking of cereal, here’s what the Giants will be having for breakfast:

      I’m sure there are 17 different individual versions of that cereal to serve.

      • Macdog said, on April 21, 2018 at 9:55 pm

        Yeah, like Special ꓘ.

    Special K is a solid cereal in my book. Got some in my pantry right now.

      I’m lately onto Honey Bunches of Oats.

    “Johnny Cueto will take the mound for the Giants tomorrow against Jaime Barria, who will be making his second major league start.”

      Uh oh…

    “Henry Schulman
    @hankschulman
    Also, Bochy got a bit defensive when asked about letting Holland start the sixth to face Trout/Upton/Pujols the third time. After the second such question, Bochy said, “You guys are stuck on the third-time through thing.” Said Holland was throwing well and he’s used a lot of ‘pen”

      It’s an interesting conflict between old school and SABR on this issue. Old school says leave the starter who’s doing well in until he has the crap-out inning. SABR says try to get him out of there before the crap-out inning, because the crap-out inning can cost you the game.

    I haven’t seen any stats on what happens when a Giant starter is left in, vs removed for a reliever, but it sure seems it has happened in most of Holland’s 0-3 start. With those three (Trout/Upton/Pujols) coming-up, I would have gone to the pen.

    This team has yet to win a series. Let’s hope they score enough runs to get Cueto a W, and this team a first series win for the year.
