GAMEBALL and JERK..... 06/09 Giants at Nationals






06/09 Giants at Nationals

GAMEBALL emoticon
CAIN
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Wasn’t exactly a breakthrough start for Matt…..but his control of the fastball was good enough , the curveball was tight, and he mixed in a cutter that kept t he opposition honest……
Cain notched his 3 win of the year, and 1st in 3 weeks and whatever Jinx that floated above his head seemed to be gone……
The bounces, the calls, the relief corps,. and even a little bit offense all fell his way…….
Now that Cain can’t win !@#$ is further in the rear view mirror, its about time he starts to build on what he already knows……
Something tells me that he could use a mentor on the staff, and Rags or Gardy or Bochy just aren't the guys……
I got the feeling that Matt misses that old retred Matt Morris……
The two were inseparable when he was around, and you know Cain would listen to Matty….
Who know if Cain can listen to Rags, or if Rags even has the time or expertise to nurture this young pitcher….

TIP OF THE CAP emoticon
YABU
Wilson said it best….this guy is a surgeon…….whatever you ask he will do, when ever, where ever………becoming more and more important in this Giants pen

MOLINA
Knocked in the Giants 3rd run of the night and nailed TWO runners in the 1st inning…..

WINN
Two RBI Basehits keyed the Giants offense.….

WILSON
5 out save……
1 BIG out in the 8th, and 4 outs in the 9th,…..saves don’t come much harder than that

JERK :jerk:
WALKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Looked decent for a couple of batters, and then seemed to be gassed as he walked Milledge, gave up a single to Dmitri Young, and then walking the catcher to load the bases…….
As we beat a dead horse and way, as long as Tyler doesn’t have command of his fastball and doesn't have that nasty splitter that was working so well in April…..he is going to keep giving up the game…….
In an organization, with Sadler, Yabu, Merkin, Hinshaw, Chulk and Taschner….it would seem that someone someone will be leap frogging Walker sometime soon….
Hey is Matos or Hedrick ready yet????
And whatever happened to Brian Anderson….is he hurt???

SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
MOLINA/ CASTILLO/ LEWIS
A trio of defensive scares…..came close to sinking the Giants….
Molina's run scoring pick off attempt
Castillo's free baserunner, adding more stress to an already stressed out Wilson
Lewis….and his last minute save on what would have been a leadoff double pop-up

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.

Re: …


Dear Steve Kline

No one even remembers anymore-- that you ever existed.


Sincerely,

YabuDabuDu

PS-- Timmah wanted me to tell you something too:

"Shave your back AND your ass!"
