A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Crash And Burned

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 24, 2022

When you look back on it, it’s really incredible that the Giants let Matt Williams play and suck so much as they did in ’87, ’88 and ’89. I mean, those were hardly rebuilding years. And yet though he was patently awful he had nearly 700 at bats during those 3 seasons.

Which brings us to Joey Bart. Do we just keep running him out there over and over watching him strike out about half the time. HALF! Shit Williams at his worst never hit the 50% strikeout ratio. He had more power, too. And was a stud defensively. So why exactly do we keep Bart around?

Because there’s no one else? Because we’re hoping he “blossoms” the way Williams did? The whole “blossoming” thing is funny to me. Like, they are completely different people, why should one be linked to the other? Isn’t it entirely possible that Bart is just another complete whiff in a long line of first round draft whiffs the Giants have made over the last 30 years?

If you want to read something completely hilarious take a look at like 1988 onward. They’ve hit on like 4 guys in 34 years. That’s a *Bart-like* average.

    Joc says Barry Bonds gave him some in-depth advice before the game. And then Joc carried the team. Wild ass game. Maybe they won’t slip under .500. Maybe.

    Crawford’s GW hit was an easy out if they didn’t over shift…

    Second guessing Buck for leaving in righty vs. Joc when he had lefty warm in the pen.
    Who was he warming up for?

    Buck speculating Longoria would’ve hit for Joc if he brought in the lefty.
    He can’t be fuckin serious…
