GB and JERK 04/04/08 GIANTS at BREWERS






GAMEBALL and JERK
04/04/08 GIANTS at BREWERS
GAMEBALL
emoticon
CASTILLO
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
JOSE 3 Extra Base Hits
Giants 2 Extra Base Hits
The dumpster diving Giants found another Pirate reject in Jose…. and quickly plugged him into the hole at 3rd…….
And Jose is so far earning his keep, playing an adequate 3rd base, and becoming the most feared bat in the lineup……
That might be saying a whole lot…….but its worth at least a GAMEBALL


TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
BOCOCK
Kid looks right at home out there at short….. and he has a semblance of plate discipline…….
something tells me the Giants are going to have a hard time keeping this kid out of the Majors………Sorry Franny….. looks like Velez and Bocock have those utility positions all wrapped up

MOLINA
The Giants "power" came through today with the Giants first dinger of the year……
So which is the greater twist of the stats
To say Bengies are on a pace to hit 40 HR????
or
To say the Giants are on a pace to hit 40 HR????


JERK
SANCHEZ
:jerk:
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
\In one of the strangest lines of all time
4 innings 7 hits 8 strikeouts…..
I don’t know what to make of that…..
19 hitters, 8 made no contact at all
7 made enough contact to get a base hit
and only 4 made batted outs…..
So either Sanchez is entirely hittable, or unhittable….almost alternating by hitter????
I will admit it… I really don't know what the best course of action is for a guy like Sanchez…….
His stuff is so wicked…….and yet he has no idea where the ball is going half the time……
He needs lots of polish, but do you let him continue to struggle in the bigs, or send him to AAA to hone his craft……
If you leave him in the bigs, you might "damage his confidence"
If you send him to AAA, his stuff might be so good, he won't have to adjust to have success….
Personally, I think you send him down to AAA and let him learn away from the bright lights……cause the way things are going all Giants fans aren't going to see a lefthanded phenom…. all they will see if a JERK……..


SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
HENNY
Wow…..now Henny never bowled scouts over with sheer stuff……but Henny stock has fallen from potential middle of the rotation starter, to set up man, to long man… to gas can……..
At one point it looked like Henny could be another ]John Burkett….. but its becoming more clear that he is more like ]Ryan Jensen……..

BERNIE BREWER
OK… WTF happened here
MILLER Park
The Milwaukee BREWERS
So wheres the !@#$ PITCHER OF BEER????
Watching Bernie go down a slide to……wave a flag????
Seems hardly worth standing on that platform all game long……
Christ… THAT PITCHER OF BEER WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST
HR CELEBRATIONS IN BASEBALL…. better that the usually cannons and firework crap……..
Oh Well…. at least its better than a !@#$ APPLE coming out of a HAT……

They can name the park after a beer company, and name the team after beer makers, but the mascot can't slide into a giant stein?

Just like its namesake, Miller Park is devoid of substance.
