GAMEBALL and JERK

05/21 GIANTS at ROCKIES

GAMEBALL

HOLM

The kid with a flair for the dramatic comes through again….
this time crushing a double to score the winning run with 2 out in the 9th inning…..
Not bad for a backup catcher who looks like a cross between
Mike Buffy LaCoss and Jeff Kent

WALKER/WILSON
Back to Back shut down innings and they did it in style dominating the 8th and 9th

SANCHEZ
Slapped around by the Rockies Offense most of the afternoon, Jon was able to limit the damage and keep the Giants close….ultimately close enough for a win……

DENKER
Welcome to the show….and whats that I see……you got about 50 professional games at 3rd???? Well hell, time to walk over to Bochy and start "volunteering."


JERK
HERGES

Wow, amazing this guy is still bouncing around the NL West…….I guess "crafty and old" aint just for Left handers anymore…….
As he pitches for his 5 NL West team, one's mind drifts back to his personal psycosis….no killer instinct…..
How he would point to the heaven on a ball destined for the bleachers…..as if point out his great accomplishment serving up a fat one……
Christ…..He's the kind of guy that wouldn’t even mind of you banged his sister…..
BTW…..How's Todd and My Kids????

FLASH IN THE PAN
I was always of the opinion that the Rockies would never have post season success because of their ballpark……
The # of pitches and # of innings teams would have to throw would burn up pitching staff in the regular season and this would more that negate any home field advantage obtained in the post season……..
Well the Rockies proved my wrong last year
Humidor cut down wear and tear…..but still the effect was there, and pitchers still carried a heavy load……
But the REAL differece was two fresh armed fireballing kids Jimenez and Morales ……a new closer in Manny Corpus, a Steady Ace in Francis, and a Vet with a Horseshoe up his ass in Josh Fogg……\
This group of 5 led the Rockies on a late season tear that took them all the way to the Final Series……..
But that ain't going to happen again,….
Jimenez is barely hanging on to a rotation spot
Corpus lost his closer position back to Fuentes
Morales is back in the Minors
Francis is being torched
And Fogg just got bumped from the Rotation……for the Reds……
So Again, the Rockies are a MASHING offensive team, with plenty of range all over the field…….but no pitching to speak off……..
Yes the dream is over……the Rockies had a magical 2 months where the pitching staff was good enough to take them all the way…….too bad they fell short, cause god know when the stars will align like that again…..

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.
