Appreciating What We Have

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 14, 2019

While most of you have probably forgotten him, I still watch the daily videos put out by the Angry Tiger Fan. Every day he churns one of those out. The vitriol varies but the exasperation is constant. The Tigers are a terrible baseball team run by fools and owned by clueless elite. Not only do they get killed every game but all the young players they have up are bad and the ones down below can’t be much or they would be able to bump the current sad sackers they run out there. And they just gave their GM an extension! Talk about no hope and you are talking about what the Tiger fan base is mired in.

So from that standpoint I feel fortunate to at least get to watch Giants games this year that are in the realm of competitive. There are players I enjoy watching like Pillar, Panda, The Dick and Smith. And we do have some pieces down below, percolating, coalescing. Legit prospects are on the way!

So I’m not sweating losses like last night’s in the slightest. Our men showed moxie and verve. If they had just thrown in the towel when The Conner Joe’s from Kokomo showed up on Opening Day that would have made for a long season….

Black Shoes today! Another reason to watch the game…..

    This Red Sox team isn’t getting back to the World Series.

    Holt did crack some good jokes before he made the game-losing error. Good times.

    All the tomato can pitchers are afraid to pitch to the Dodgers and just walk a bunch of guys. We’ve seen it for years now.

    Well the Giants aren’t afraid to pitch to anyone.
    They’re fine just letting Goldschmidt, Arenado, etc. tee off on them for eternity…

    There’s a fine line between nibbling and grooving the ball to MLB hitters with a ball like this.

    I wonder if the “game would have passed Sabean/Evans by” if Belt would have blossomed into a star, Panik would have grown into a solid player, and Posey, Longoria, Melon, and Craw would have maintained their levels of a fews ago.
    I think most informed Giants fans would agree there was a time those were all reasonable projections.

    What Sabean and Evans both do during their workday for the Giants now.
