GAMEBALL and JERK
04/29/08 ROCKS at GIANTS
GAMEBALL
emoticon
TIMMEH
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
It was a Timmy celebration at ATT, thanks to the Giants new promotional gimmick…..discounting tickets based on strike outs…..and hey… its genius…….
highlight the most exciting aspect of the team while discounting previously overpriced tickets anyway……..
And Timmeh didn't have his best stuff…..but still battled and kept the Giants in the game…….
For a pitcher with such composure, command, and ability, its hard to believe that Tim has been in the majors less than a year…….and in fact Timmeh next start will be just 2 days short of his one year anniversary….5/4/08… as he goes head to head with the pitcher he faced in his debut…. Cole Hamels……..

TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
BULLPEN
I could get used to this……..as the Giants bullpen finish their best month in memory…….
up and down the pen, we have solid performances everywhere…..
Christ, the pleasant surprises from Merkin, Walker, Taschner, …..the demeanor or Wilson…..and resurgence of Chulk….and even the clutch performances from the mop up men……..this is what is really keeping the Giants out of cellar….


JERK
DARLING

Well, so much for fairness in umpiring……..
Wonder if this is what its like when you are SUPPOSED TO SUCK……
All of a sudden, the umps start piling on knowing they are just keeping with the natural order of things……
I don’t get it…. the last two weeks are some of the worst !@#$ umpiring I have ever seen……
And tonight……was the coup de grace……as the Home Plate Umpire/ Crew Chief FROM San Francisco…..Calls time out, only to follow the time out with a balk call……..
what the !@#$ is all that about……
It felt like I was trapped in some weird limbo between Chris Webber's Time Out, and a High Stakes game of Simon Sez………..

SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
BASERUNNING
Lewis at the plate…..Winn at third…..Eugenio at first……..need I say more????

MAX SCHERZER
National League West division race is over before it began…….
The Dbacks just unleashed its secret weapon……..
Phenom Max Scherzer made his debut tonight in mop up duty……
Fresh off pulling a "Lincecum" on the minor leagues…..Max pitched4 1/3 innings… no hits, no walks, 7 strikeouts…..
Whether he slips into the #5 spot in the rotation behind Haren, Webb, Owings, and Johnson……or shuffling into a bullpen behind Lyon, Pena, and Cruz…….the Dbacks got too much talent on all sides of the game for anyone else in the west to match up with…….
Looks to me like the Backs will be getting another ring before we finally get our shot at redemption….
