GAMEBALL and JERK..... 06/13 A's at Giants




06/13 A's at Giants

GAMEBALL emoticon
OMAR
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The Lfying Omar show was back in form tonight, as Omar was THE HIGHLIGHT of the Giants.
A straight steal of home was a play straight from little league……schooling the rooks like they were 8 years old…….
Throw in a handful of sweet plays and the field, and the playful nagture keeping sprits up and people entertained in the face of a butt ass cold, depressing loss……and you gotta love Omar……..
As we called for the double play, Omar gestured to us and then his ear asking for more volume……we obliged and turned up the yelling, which got approving nods from Oma…..……..within a couple minutes he turned a 6-3 DP, and as we came to our feet cheering……he jogged off the field…..giving us a couple of six shooter gestures…..
Totally surreal that he not only can hear us, but I am pretty sure is using US as HIS entertainment…….
May sound farfetched to some of you, but Monkey will vouch for me………she's the little cutie that caught Omar's eye/ ear in the first place (shes gonna kill me for that one)

BTW, whatever happened to Gillette????
He got ran out of town here for being everyone's favorite whipping boy for a while……
We were at a game a couple years back….when he went ape !@#$ trying to get Omar to come over and sign a ball or hat or something…….
Omar finally came over…..only to stand there and wait for him to find a pen……..as he fumbled for the pen……the National Anthem started……so here Omar is…..astray from his teammates standing at attention with us as the Anthem plays……classic…….

SPRINKLERS
Got more cheers from Giants fans than anything but Omar……

JERK :jerk:
ZITO
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
I'm confused…….really confused……
Zito actually looked like a major leaguer at times last night, and performed honestly a lot better than I was expecting…….
I mean come on……pitching against his former team …I halfway expected Zito to blasted out of the box by the 4th inning……and there he was in the 6th inning ….after giving up a weak single he struck out the next two hitters to get to 2 outs, and the Giants were only down a couple of runs….
And then things enravelled for Mr Zito and flair single followed by a couple of walks and the A's had their 4th run, and Zito was chased to a chorus of boos…..
Reallt, when you look back at that inning, Bochy should have done anything possible to pull him before walking that last runner…..Zito had hung at least 5 changeups and curveballs WELL ABOVE the strikezone……..Everyone in the park could see that Zito was gassed……
And when it got to the final batter of the Zito's start…..after lucking into a 1-2 count….Zito SAILED 3 IN A ROW, EACH 2 FEET ABOVE THE PLATE…….
Good god……at least 25% of the pitches thrown in that inning were more than 1 foot ABOVE the target……
Sure, I could Boo Zito cause he sucks…….but we already know he sucks…. and that won't get us anywhere…….
Where the boos should be aimed the Front Office and Coaching Staff who continue…noit only to run Zito out there to get bombed…….but also mishandling him when they do get a half way decent performance…….
The bottom line as far as I an concerned……..throw him in the pen and use him as a LOOGY……at least then we won't have to be reminded of the collsal mistake every 5th day in the form of ANOTHER Loss…….
Its gonna happen sooner of later…..
They CANT release him…..just because he might figure it out in a year or two and become useful again
They CANT keep running him out there…. as the PR disaster of 20 losses would be greater than a shift to the bullpen or the outright release
Nope, they HAVE to stick him in t he pen……where it makes the most sense financially, politically, and baseballically……..


SMACK OF THE STICK emoticon
ROWAND and MOLINA
The two run producers let us down in the one really good chance we had tonight…
Bases Juiced 1out……Molina with a shallow fly to right, and Rowand with a flailing K

yes merkin, you are correct. he does cup his ear to try and hear and ask for more. he needed something to entertain him and he figures he could be the center of attention.

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.
