GAMEBALL and JERK
04/08/08 PADRES at GIANTS
GAMEBALL
emoticon
MOLINA

Ahhhh, What a difference a couple of long balls can make on a game……
And supplying today's punch was Bengie" One Man Wrecking Crew" Molina….
Undeterred by catching 11 innings in the stiffening cold of the San Francisco evening, Bengie hit a pair of solo shots to power the Giants to their first home win of the season…..
So Bengie, here is your GAMEBALL for rewarding those fans who sat through the cold


TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
LINCECUM
Tim is the single best reason to come out the yard this year….
With less than a year in the Majors, Tim looks more and more comfortable by the day….
Dominating stuff, but not yet a dominate pitcher, you get the feeling that somewhere, sometime soon that Tim will turn a corner and become a true ace……

HENNY
After being banged around like Tina Turner, after an Ike drinking binge
Henny found his form, while keeping the Giants tied well into extra frames….

TONY BENNETT
Ahhh, no better end to a evening of baseball than our favorite curly haired crooner

JERK
WILSON
:jerk:
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The Tattooed one, certainly has the stuff and the demeanor to be the closer for this team….but good god man…..when late inning leads are few and far between… nailing down the save can do wonders for a teams confidence……
So its Wilson's job to lose, as the Giants nurture its batch of youngsters……but with experienced Walker and fireballing Merkin throwing strikes in the 7th and 8th……a few more blow saves and Wilson won't be the closer any longer…. he would be just another JERK

SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
ORTMEIER
Aint exactly making the most of his chances……
Grounding into a double play
Picked off first, when he wasn’t looking to steal
And then with the bases loaded and nobody out, Ortmeier let a fly ball go off his glove……could have been disaster, if it wasn’t for some boneheaded base running from Kouzmanoff

I know it's just a play on words but it would be profoundly dumb for the Giants to give up on a young closer once again. Lets not forget giving up on Joe Nathan and Jeremy Accardo in the not so distant past. We need to be patient with out young players, not so much with ownership, GM and Coaches though.
