GAMEBALL and JERK..... 06/01 PADRES at GIANTS








06/01 PADRES at GIANTS

GAMEBALL
emoticon
LEWIS
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
After spending the day riding the pine, Freddie was called upon to face the Major Leagues most prolific closer trying to slam the door on a Padres Victory…….
Using the patient approach that 2008 Giants fans have become accustom to he worked the count full before turning on a fastball and crushing it off the bricks in triples alley about 3 feet short of the top of the 18 foot wall for an game tying triple……
Fred then scored on a groundball to the shortstop to send the Giants home winners……
Freddie Real Deal Lewis, seems to be the Anti -Linden…. unphased by the majors…..disproving his detractors….and despite his flaws…becoming a solid major leaguer…..
Sure he is still unpolished defensively and could it woul dbe great if he could hit for more power…..but guess what….the kid is in the majors now and the fruits of hard work isn’t some far off promise of the major leagues…..no, hard work can quickly turn into playing time in the majors…….big time stats…..and a couple multimillion dollar contracts……..
His chance at the show isn’t some far off lottery ticket……its right here, right now.,..and something tells me that Lewis is going to work his ass off to be the best ballplayer he can……..

TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
HORWITZ
Welcome to the show……
For a corner outfielder without speed or power……it takes quite a bit of right place and right time to make the majors…….even for a cup of coffee……and once they are there, its even harder to get playing time…..
Hell even before the steroid era, the players thought of as the High Average Only hitters had something else to offer…..You needed to either have AT LEAST a little speed, like a Young Tony Gwynn, or play a semi premium defensive position like Wade Boggs…. or BOTH like Rod Carew……..
For Mr Horwitz the best he can hope for is a career like a Mike Aldrete……or maybe if he is real lucky he can be a Mickey Hatcher……and can someone please tell me
]How in the Hell did Mickey Hatcher get 3377 career AB's????
Nobody got as much out of no talent as Hatcher…..

LINCECUM
Yeah….bad ass mo fo……..'nuff said…..

OMAR
can roll out of bed and lay down a perfect sac bunt……

JERK
HINSHAW
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
It’s a think line between love and hate for a late inning major league reliever……
These hitters are !@#$ GOOD, and NOT ONLY have great god given gifts, but ADDITIONALLY they are smart and make adjustments game to game, at bat to at bat, and pitch to pitch… Sure that sounded like one long cliché, but its also true…….which Hinshaw found out today…..
The nearly unhittable Hinshaw was hit today
Afeter Gerut bounced a single off Hinshaw's knee…..Hishaw racked up his 10th and 11th career punchouts in his first 6 innings….
Smooth Sailing until you tried to drop a lollypop on Adrian G, who musta been looking for that first pitch curve……and he put a charge into it sending it deep to straight away center and a 2 run lead…….
So welcome to the show Mr Hinshaw….and no matter how nasty your stuff, these pros are going to figure you out…….so good luck with the adjustments…….


SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
WALKER
Needs to be moved down the food chain to regain his confidence……..cause it seems that every time he is brought in with the lead, its gone before he leaves the mound…..
Sure there have been a ton of high pressure situations, with low margins of error……but when you don’t know where your fastball is going half the time……someone else needs to step in……

JAY BRUCE
If only the Giants sucked badly enough in 2004…..and mean really….wouldn’t 15 more losses been worth missing a team loaded with world beaters Cody Ransom, Wayne Franklin, and Brett Tomko????
And BTW, the Giants gave up there #22 pick for Benitez that year……
just thank god Aaron Thompson is injured and struggling through Single A ball…..

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.

Hahaha ... the quote of the year, "I agree with you on all points ..."

If you didn't agree with him, you wouldn't be seeing him. LOL

I often don't agree with my wife (and vice versa). We're still together.

keyword = wife.

And I would guess that it was different before getting married.
(assuming you took the time to really get to know each other first)
Generally speaking, Many things are different "pre-prenuptially."
Not always, and not all-- but most.

(I'll spare you from my quoting of the banana joke, I'm sure you've heard it already anyway.)

Same goes for the higher chance of hanging in there in spite of major differences that were discovered "post-nuptially"-- i.e. "for better and for worse... through sickness and in health-- etc etc."

Yes, no, maybe so?

We were always very different, with different opinions on many things. We knew each other for several years before finally getting hitched. A big difference is I certainly don't let stuff "slide" as much anymore - and neither does she emoticon

I just don't think that "a couple" has to always be in agreement - that sounds really boring to me. I also think there's a big difference between disagreeing on things and fighting about things - my wife and I often disagree, but we rarely fight about stuff.

Other picks of note taken after the 22 pick in 2005:

Jacoby Ellsbury
Matt Garza
Clay Buchholtz
Jed Lowrie
Travis Buck
Colby Rasmus

Jeez, did Boston hit the freaking jackpot in 2005 or what? They won the WS and still were smart about the draft. Ellsbury, Bucholtz and Lowrie and five picks in teh first round.
