GAMEBALL and JERK..... 05/12 ASTROS at GIANTS






GAMEBALL and JERK

05/12 ASTROS at GIANTS

GAMEBALL
emoticon
ZITO
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Zito turned in a solid performance tonight….
No doubt far from a staff ace worth $126M…….but then again quite a few shades better than a dog !@#$ sandwich……..
Able to spot his fastball for strikes and use it to tease outside and above the strike out….mixed with a fair amount of changeups…..and using the curve sparingly……Zito looked better than he had all year…….and against a potent Astros lineup……this start feels a lot like a victory………ok…. like a winless victory……….
The Diet Soda of Victories…….
The Fat Free Potato Chip of Victories
Yes…..the Dry Hump of Victories………
Let just hope Zito can consummate the victory next time around…….


TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
BOWKER
Feeding the kid junk balls for weeks now……well… Oswalt read the book and tried to plant a curveball on the inside corner….and Bowker took it over the wall…….
The kid is adjusting back to the league…….this sure will be interesting to see him develop.,…..

LEWIS
Picked up a couple hits and played solid D
This kid development
The word is out….. the kid LOVES going to left……hard stuff…..soft stuff…..dont matter…. but I don’t think everyone knows where his holes are yet……
So far here is what Freddie has trouble with…….
Hole 1) Hard Stuff on the hands….has a hard time shortening up and turning on the ball…..lots of week ground balls to 2nd…….
Hole 2) And this is a biggie……Soft stuff down and in……especially from lefties…….not sure if Freddie has a hard time seeing this pitch, but there have been more swing through on this location/ speed combination then everything else combined…….


JERK
YABU
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Wow……what the HELL were you thinking??????
That’s the kinda !@#$ that10 year teammate pull off……..
Manning/ Harrison…….Young/Rice……Stockton/ Malone…….Trammell/ Whittaker…….Yabu/ Bowker………yeah… dont really fit does it……
not even close….
1) you probably need a translator to talk to Bowker
2) Bowker's played less than 20 pro games at 1st
3) is a two run game with an overmatched DP likely catcher at the plate…….
Nice thought from the Cagy Vet….. but this is the Giants…..leave the fancy !@#$ for OMA


SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
CHULK/ MERKIN
2 !@#$ HITS TO JOSE CRUZ??????
Jesus H, the kid couldn’t hit an offspeed pitch to save his job……which is why he is still bouncing around the league……..
Steady diet of changeups and curveballs until he hacks himself to sleep……
Hell Jose would swing at a Pump Fake if the rules allowed it
