GAMEBALL and JERK..... 05/04/08 GIANTS at PHILS




2008 looks like its going to be a wild ride all the way……
A Giants team that shouldn't even compete with a powerhouse like the Philadelphia Phillies just finished a 3 game series in which the fate of the game was decided in the final inning……..with late inning heroics on both sides of the ball……
Sure this Giants team lost 2 of 3……but they gave the far superior Phillies a run for their money…..the Giants keep playing this hard and this well…..they are going to end up on the good side of a 2-1 series split more often than not….

Wasn't I just throwing dirt on your professional grave……
Well a multihit, multi extra base hit has a way of changing things really quick……
Im fact, since Richie hit his first homer about a week ago….Ritchie has raised his Average off the interstates all the way up to .260…..
During that same time over just 20 AB's he has hit .450, with a .529 OBP, and slugged [sign in to see URL]…….
Well its just a few games shuttling in and out of the lineup…..but it’s a few games of performance that may have just bought Ritchie a little more time in the league….
Keep that stick swinging Ritchie…..we will take offense from where wherever we can get it

Not exactly an upgrade over Feliz…….but still a fresh face that doesn’t remind us of 2007…..and 2006…and 2005…..and 2004………
Jose drove in the would be winning run in the top of the 8th with a triple laced down the Right Field line…….

JERK
VELEZ

GOOD GOD……..SO the wrap on Velez has been his hands of stone…..and they were on display tonight, as Velez played matador with a groundball to right field….which rolled right through for a Phillie Victory……yes, he has to make that play……no, it wasn't difficult…….yes, he needs to fall on that ball…..but I tell you what……
Ray or Ritchie probably don’t even get to that ball…….and the kid has range………hopefully the rest will come with time…..but until then VELEZ is the JERK

I can't remember this many bad calls at any time as a Giants fan….
its seems you can point to 5 or 6 calls a week that are obviously fucked up…..
I'm not talking those tough calls at 2nd, where Brandon Phillips make a great play to miss the tag……no, I'm talking like the play today where the tag was clearly made…..of that pitch that was clearly down the pipe…..now I;m not usually one for conspiracy theories……but I wonder if the fact that Giants are expected to lose are affecting the calls we "aren't" getting……or maybe the Giants youth are getting the calls that the opposition "Vets" are getting…. anyway you slice it…….umpiring has been crap…….

It may also be that there has been so much negetivity towards the Giants over the last few years that there is a subconscious bias that some Umpires have, but yeah it seems the bad calls are so obviously lopsided favoring Giants opponents.
