GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at BREWERS 07/08




After losing their last 5 series in a row, and coming off a horrible ending to the series in Colorado…the Giants entered Milwaukee for a 4 game set……the scene of two of the most embarrassing losses of the 2009…..you had ]Wilson getting the !@#$ kicked out of him losing a newly minted 2 run lead on a walk off Fielder double….and then in the last regular season meeting you had the infamous ] Fielder proclaiming himself a Beautiful Flower Blooming walk off homer celebration…..so who saw this coming???/ A four game sweep in their house???... come on now, this is pretty !@#$ sweet…..!@#$ the Brewers, !@#$ Milwaukee and their miserable city, !@#$ Miller Genuine Apple Juice, and !@#$ Laverne and Shirley……the only thing I can think of that would be better is if we mixed in a Fielder bean ball and Huff ending his home run trot in the 3rd at home plate by pulling down his pants and dropping a steaming deuce on homeplate while pointing at Fielder at first……now THAT woulda been sweet

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at BREWERS 07/08

GAMEBALL

HUFF
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Well, I can forgive him for not dropping a deuce…..pretty sure that would garner a suspension…..but perhaps he could parlay that into a Charmin endorsement …what he did drop was 4 RBI's including the first 3 runs of the game….and man I can't believe this guy……0-2 pitch in on the hands and he short arms it over the fence in right…..man, either the ball is flying or this guy has insane power…..lets hope it’s the later……and ever notice that the cheaper the contract the better the signing……1 Year…$3M……he keeps this up and I would be happy to give him a 3 year……just not a Rowand type contract…..

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
SANCHEZ
The second half of today's offensive attack….Set the table with a single in front of Huff's two run shot, and then knocked in a couple of his own with a 2 run double in the fourth….and then scored on a Huff Sac Fly……like Huff, better than I expected on both offense and defense……and doing a good job of making the Glass Freddy tag a memory…..

POSEY
He wasn't quite done in Milwaukee……and hit a bomb to Right Center on a 85MPH fastball, that easily cleared the fence…..man, this guy has WAY more power with the wood bat than people gave him credit for……now I just wonder where we are going to put the statue…..

TORRES
Have I mentioned…..I love this guy

RENTERIA
Another multi hit game……maybe Baggs should challenge his manhood more often….

RAY
So far so good, and a big 2 innings today…and the first pitcher of the day to throw strikes consistently…..

JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
ZITO
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Zito dropped at least 4 on camera F Bombs in the 5th….which is about [sign in to see URL]% of the F Bombs I have dropped watching him pitch the last 3 1/2 years…..The two biggest barometers to watch is fastball velocity, and walk count…..well the velocity has been there all year and was there again tonight……but the control was all over the place walking 6 through 4 2/3rd….this is the 3rd time he has had at least 5 walks in a game this year…..and his walk numbers are high, but not quite as bad as they were a couple years ago……..no, he's not ace we saw in April….and honestly, I am glad he was pissed off coming out of that game……the last thing I wanna see is a player like him brush it off like its no big deal……

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
LABRON
Come on seriously??? The biggest waste of airtime since 's_Vault#Program]Al Capone's Vault…so I watched…..and good god, can someone hire him a PR guy…..FANS….remember to mention the FANS…..NOT what YOU DID for them, but what THEY DID for you……repeat that you love FANS over and over and over and over…Miami and Cleveland alike….all fans…..you LOVE FANS….got it?? ok, that'll be $14 million dollars for my services……

RUNZLER
Got out of the pickle in the 5th, only to turn in easily the worst At Bat of the year…..

BRIDE
Few more cocktails? Anyone?

FORD
Dude…..I can spot you a few hundy if you needed it……jeeeezuss……

SABEAN
Don't even TALK to me about Corey !@#$ Hart……talk about Buy High Sell Low……..what's the matter…Cory Snyder won't come out of retirement???.......!@#$…I take a bet right now that Burrell will out OPS Hart the rest of the year…..

(The fine print: There will be cussing and bad taste. This is written with the heat of the moment feel you may have during the game, with rational thought sprinkled in now and then. This is entertainment folks, sure there is a lot of truth and I am a genius, but this is all about having a laugh and enjoying the ride…….now lets go heckle Jeff Kent in when he gets inducted to Cooperstown..)

I'm sorry Merk, but how can Runzler get a smack? Its' not his fault he works on side sessions more than the batting cage and Bochy sent him up there without a clue. He got us out of the jam and unfortunately got injured.

easy, he's a baseball player and it was swinging a baseball bat... pretty sure he's done that before

of course, we can differ in opinion on that one

Well done Merk. Very entertaining, but I do admit, I have no clue what the Al Capone Vault entails and therefore, could not partake in that joke.
