GB and JK .... 05/31 PADRES at GIANTS





05/31 PADRES at GIANTS

GAMEBALL

BURRISS
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Has done nothing to embarrass himself as a shortstop in the bigs…and today once again he made all the plays and keyed the Giants offense (or lack thereof)… getting a pair of hits and stealing the only base of the day……The one time Giants fans could cheer short of the run scoring ninth……

TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
Rowand
knocked in Castillo to wipe the shut out off the boards with 2 out in the 9th……
It may not be a win, but thank god we didn’t get completely blanked……

JERK
MISCH
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
This kid isn’t NEARLY this bad…….in my opinion this is a combination of inexperience, nerves, and just plain bad luck……
Today's 1st inning meltdown, followed by 5 solid innings has been more the norm than the exception for Micsh…as he has been scored upon in the 1st inning in 4 of his 6 starts……
In the first has compiled a [sign in to see URL] ERA and a [sign in to see URL] ratio, while giving up 4 homers in 6 innings
After the 1st inning of his starts, he has compiled a [sign in to see URL] ERA, and a [sign in to see URL] ratio, with 4 homers in 26 innings……
His best performance actually came in his first appearance of the year, a long relief appearance mopping up a Zito Explosion…..
But even during that mop up duty, Misch has been a gopher ball machine, giving up a pair of long balls during that relief appearance and a total of 10 Homers in 38 innings…..
Add that gopher ball rate, to the obvious signs of inexperience, to a Giants 0-7 record when he pitches…..it’s a NO BRAINER to send Misch back down when Correia comes off the DL…..
I still like Misch, and think he could still be decent starter or a good reliever…..but the kid needs to work on a few things….mostly trying to figure out how to suck a little less


SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
BOWKER/ CASTILLO/ OFFICIAL SCORING
1st out of the game was not to be…..
OK, Catillo rushed his throw and bounced it to Bowker, but gimme a !@#$ break
Bowker had a waist high hop with no pressure from the runner and flubbed the scoop…..
I can understand when a 1st basemen misses a ground level, scoop or a bad hop scoop…..but this was just a lapse of concentration error.
Good god, that’s a scoop that my mom would catch 99 times out of 100…….Hel,. you coulda thrown the glove to the ground and just smothered it with your body and gotten the out…….
Its one of those errors that fielders don't deserve, but get all the time

JIM WOLF
Couple questionable calls behind the dish, and with no TV I can't go back and check what I saw at the yard……
Bottom line here…..why in the hell is Jim Wolf assigned to a PADRES Series?????
Better yet, tomorrow Jim Will be at third with his BROTHER Randy on the mound……
I thought MLB had policies against this !@#$?????
So is Jim going to think twice about that balk call????
How about that Check Swing appeal????
And the ever important fair foul HOMER call?????
!@#$, even is Jim has a perfect game, just the APPEARANCE of POSSIBLE impropriety isn't worth it, is it?????

Re: GB and JK .... 05/31 PADRES at GIANTS


Misch sure looks a lot like Ortmeier!

You nailed a couple of things that were going through my mind while listening to the game yesterday.

1. Krapstillos throw in he 1st. Flemming said it bounced 7 feet in front of Bowker. I think if you're a 1st baseman and you get a bad throw, you WANT one that bounces 7 feet in front of you. I thought right off the bat that sounded like it should have been Bowkers error.

2. The Brothers Wolf- there is no reason for this to be happening. The schedule makers should be able to factor this in. It would be interesting to see just how many series they have both been a part of, and not just ones with Randy getting a start.
