GAMEBALL and JERK..... 06/03 METS at GIANTS






06/03 METS at GIANTS

GAMEBALL
emoticon
DENKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
It wasn’t all doom and gloom, as our resident short hairy bastid got his first Major League Homer and gave the crowd a brief moment of hope after being down by 6 in the 9th inning……
I swear the kid looks like an Ewok or a Dwarf…….which makes me just sound like a Star Wars or D&D geek……so lets just call him Cousin IT……….
Lets see what the scouting report says……
Average Power, Average Speed, Below average plate discipline which will drag on Batting Average…..
Stiff hands, questionable range, and average arm…comfortable at 2nd and 3rd, although better at 3rd……
THIRD YOU SAY??????
Hell, give him a shot over there…….what could happen…..
The Giants have a glut of middle infielders in the system and god knows we need a competent 3rd baseman
Sure Denker might not be competent, but he has a couple of tools and is still young enough at 22 to prove the scouts wrong…….
 
TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
LEWIS
Keeps on keeping on,……with this plate discipline and flat swing, I cant believe he was ever slumping………. 2 more hits and a SB……and the Freddie Lew Show has been extended indefinitely

MISCH
3 perfect innings…..NOW you figure out how to pitch……sheeeesh……


JERK
ZITO
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Zito got smacked around like a of pinata's on El Guapo's birthday……
Zito was able to stem the tide for a few innings, but by the time the 5th inning came around, the flood gates opened, and only Vinnie Chulk was there to save the day……..


SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
CHULK
……and that’s where the night mare really began as Chulk gave up 3 hits including a slap shot down the line by Pedro…..allowing all his inherited runners to score along with a couple more……
Seems like our boy Vinnie doesn’t react well to mid inning situations…..

GLOVES
And the last piece of the castrophy puzzle……the defense was shoddy as hell…..
First Bowker couldn’t get to a foul pop up off the TV Camera…..surely a difficult play…..but a make able play….
And then on a slow roller to Short Omar charges and decides to talk it himself for the DP…..undertestimating the speed or the runners, or overestimating his own speed and arm strength……could have had the runner at 2 or 1st…..and instead chased Zito
And as if catching some boot the ball bug, Ray ray's glove turned to stone as he booted a routine grounder for what would have been out #2

Yup the 5th inning was about as ugly as it gets, as the Giants took turns leaving fat pitches at the belt, and kicking balls around the infield…….I would swear I was the Bad News Bears, if I didn't know Wurlitzer is on da crack , and Buttermaker is long since dead…….
By the way,…..ever wonder what happened to Kelly Leak…….

Last seen trying to cash a giant Novelty Check in Semi-Pro

Travis Denker Below Average plate disipline????????????

His career minor league OBP is .377 295 BB with 1833 minor league AB's. Isolated OBP is .100 Scouting report sure looks different from his statistics.

Thats my bad, I read "inconsistent" and "free-swinger" without looking at the stats
