GAMEBALL and JERK

05/19 GIANTS at ROCKIES

GAMEBALL

WINN

Mr Reliable….and not at all a bad player…..Randy has put up the same numbers year after year…..with the exception the end of the season 2005 when he was the best player on earth…..and the beginning of 2006 where he was Sabeans freshest folly…….but no matter now, as Winn is one of the few pieces that is cheap enough and good enough to bring a prospect back to the Giants…..sure he wouldn’t fetch a blue chipper……..
Hey the Marlins, Padres, Cubs could use a decent CF with some offense…..
Heck……Even the Mariners could use him…….

TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
FRED LEWIS
Representing the Future as the only rookie position player in the starting lineup…..
What….whats that????…Not a rookie????
Oh, yeah guess that’s right…….so here we are folks…….in the midst of a 7 game losing streak on a "rebuilding team" and we are running exactly ZERO rookies out there in the field………

MISCH
Well at least SOMEONE is out there injecting some youth into the Giants….of course
we never did have much of a problem giving time to pitchers……


JERK

IS this a bad dream?????
Punchless old lineup….
Feels like 2005 without the Vote for Pedro Shirts….
The Good Old Barry and the 7 dwarfs lineup…..without Barry….
2008________________2005
C) Molina____________Matheny
1B) Aurilia___________Snow
2B) Durham__________Durham
SS) Vizquel__________Vizquel
3B)Castillo___________Alfonzo
LF) Lewis____________Feliz
CF)Rowand __________Winn/ Ellison
RF) Winn ____________Alou

The Giants scored a paltry 649 runs in 2005 and lost 87 games….
The 2008 version will be lucky to score 600
2005 was the most depressing year I can remember as a Giants fan, as we looked back the missed chances in 2002, 2003, and even 2004…..as the Front office pretended the "window of opportunity" was still open……..
But the Barry we knew and loved was gone, and we spent the summer waiting for his return…….
We enjoyed the first and last year of Matheny……got solid years from Alou and Vizquel…..and watched Winn scorch his way across the league……
While Armando rehabbed from being a fat ass. we watched "the Bull" try to blow games nightly…..
Cream of Wheat Felipe drew the ire of Giants fans and Radio hosts…..as we suffered the first losing season in 8 years
2005 did not have the drama of 2002, 2003, or 2004….as our season basically ended when Benitez coughed up a save on a 2 run double to Sean Burroughs……

Yes, my friends that was the depression of 2004, when the rebuild SHOULD have begin…..and here we are 5 years later STILL Clamoring for Sabes to play the kids……
I mean Christ….. what did playing the vets in 2005 get us?????? A miserable 10th overall pick in the draft…..we all know picks after the first 5 aren't worth bonus, right Sabes????

Wait a second……Sabes is a GENIUS!!!
We played the Vets and picked up the #10 pick aka Tim Lincecum…….
All we have to do in 2008 is "pretend to contend" with the vets….
Keep the turnstiles turning as we finish up with a horrible record…..and get another fat pick
Wow……got to say, Brian is even more masterful than his reputation..


SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
BOB EVANS….
Who the hell is this guy?
Director of Player Personnel.. yeah……for the Giants, right????
his ]CV certainly makes him sound sharp…..so why does he sound like an idiot on the radio
1 week ago explaining how Roberts has the Advantage of Lewis, because Roberts can hit from both sides …..I can only assume he was talking about his sexual preference, because Roberts aint switch hitter at least in baseball
Then this Saturday…..when quizzed about Lewis went on and on about platoon advantage…..only to have Bochy explain that Lewis was resting a hurt foot…..
Now I am sure you are very intelligent and qualified………………and your concentration is the Minor Leagues,…… but these basic questions you are getting are making you look ill informed…….
Polish it up and keep pluggin, cause these days the Minors is the best way Giants fans have to hold onto hop
