A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Are the ‘Guardians’ The Worst Name In Professional Sports? Yes.

Fun little series with Cleveland. I like that we no longer stack all the interleague games at the same time. Although with the uni DH there’s not much difference between the leagues except general style of play/pitching. I’m also enjoying the uni DH, as I suspected we’d get used to it very quickly.

    Giants bullpen has been every good as the starters..
    Doing a great job getting out hot hitter Steven at the river Kwan out in this series as he’s 0-7!!

    Thompson and Poole making up for Curry tonight. Looks way less than 100%; maybe more he plays he gets rhythm back.

      Yeah Curry hits 3 to close half, very nice GS up 11.

    Giants have held Cleveland to 3 runs in 2 games. sometimes I think less pitches a guy uses better he is. Doval only has 2 and when he gets beat it’s usually the slider not the fastball. Mc Gee gave up a hit and a walk then got 2 groundouts and a K and saved the game. None of these guys are machines that are gonna be perfect, but add in Leone Garcia Rogers et al, very effective and versatile unit

    The D is shaping up after a cold start.

    Steven Kwan is a local kid from Fremont. Washington High. Super hot start. .455/.636. 1.242.

    It’s not necessarily a significant measure of how good a team’s starting rotation is, but I’ve always liked a boiled-down look at right-left combinations at the top of a rotation. There are somewhat famous ones (Drysdale/Koufax, Palmer/McNally, etc.) and ones that you just have from time to time on “your team”. I’m sure many Flappers have their favs. I remember thinking Cueto/MadBum coulda woulda shoulda been a great R-L combo, if Johnny coulda stayed healthy. This year, early though it is, Webb/Rodon so far has that look of a great R-L combo. And really, even at the bottom of the rotation, Cobb/Wood ain’t chopped liver. Loving these starters so far.

      Bet you loved Bunning/Short.
      Back here it was Seaver/Koosman…

      • paul sorensen said, on April 16, 2022 at 8:08 pm

        Yeah Loo, Bunning/Short was my first R-L duo. Seaver/Koos was pretty awesome. For a bit there in Boston, Clemens/Hurst was pretty good.

      • djloo27 said, on April 16, 2022 at 8:15 pm

        And McLain/Lolich…

      • paul sorensen said, on April 16, 2022 at 8:29 pm

        Yes McClain/Lolich, but I really only remember ’68, not sure how long that was a good R-L combo. I even had a Mickey Lolich glove at that point….

    Today’s game wasn’t the prettiest game ever, but a nice victory nonetheless.

    Nice sports day. Giants and Dubs win!!! McGee made me a little nervous!

    MLB says that Giants starters have allowed no more than 2 runs in each of the first 8 starts, tying the franchise mark from the ’02 team. Didn’t specify number of innings pitched by the starters. ’02… I loved that team, but struggle a bit to remember the full rotation. Ortiz, Schmidt, Woody, Livan….?

    • unca_chuck said, on April 16, 2022 at 9:43 pm

      Didn’t we get that Bahamian guy? Sidney Ponson?

      • paul sorensen said, on April 16, 2022 at 9:52 pm

        I think he was from Aruba. Sir Sid. I thought that was after ’02, but don’t remember. Big dud. Traded Ainsworth for him, if I’m not mistaken, a guy I thought was going to be good but then seemed to fizzle out in Baltimore…

      • paul sorensen said, on April 16, 2022 at 10:03 pm

        Had a promising crop of young pitchers (seemed promising at the time): Kurt Ainsworth, Jerome Williams, Jesse Foppert… Thought the future looked kinda rosy. Were Joe Nathan and Liriano at that same time, or maybe just post-2002…

      • paul sorensen said, on April 17, 2022 at 1:35 am

        I guess by ’04 or ’05, all of those young guns were gone. Couldn’t have known that in those next few years, they’d finally hit on Cain and Timmy….

    Here is a wonderfully accurate article about the Yankees radio broadcaster you were wondering about the other day…
