GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at NATIONALS 07/09






GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at NATIONALS 07/09

GAMEBALL

TRAVIS
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Travis……this guy is the cockroach of Giants first base prospects……usually they come and go quicker than the Fiddle Faddle and Choco Taco stash in Timmy's locker after a couple bong loads ….but Travis has gone from prospect to suspect to prospect to 4A player to starter to pinch hitter and is still on the roster……and actually flourishing in his role of pinch hitter and spot starter….Travis is looking relaxed at the plate and who knows why……I can't imagine that’s its easier coming off the bench…..and who knows what he does in full time play…..but with 2 hits tonight he is hitting .345 with a 939 OPS….with pretty even splits between starting and subbing……could he do the same playing full time???? well, with Torres and Uribe out and Nate relegated to the nether regions of the 25 man, we may just see a few more starts for Ishi…..

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
TORRES
All he does is score runs in the first inning ….with 16 of 46 runs scored in the first….…and sometimes he drive in himself

CAVS OWNER
Nice Letter…..Mix in a couple F Bombs, and you can sub for me sometime…..

FRANDSEN
Doing well in a small sample size with the Angels…..and a small dart thrown at the "Vets" in the Giants clubhouse that didn't like him being outspoken,….I like to think he is talking about Rowand……

I'm not one that enjoys rehashing the past…..but I do it all the time anyway……so as the Giants get their asses handed to them by Adam Dunn…yes the same Adam Dunn that plays the outfield like a manatee with down syndrome, but he also a force in the middle of the lineup with an OPS of .900+ only every !@#$ year….and guess what, he played about 40% of the time at 1st in 2009 and in 2010 he's a full time first baseman and loving it……I flash back to the offseason of 2008-2009…..where we had the whole….I talked to him, I never talked to him….he won't play first, never asked about playing first……what the !@#$ was that all about…..you don't !@#$ ASK him if he is open to it, you MAKE AN OFFER and mention he might play some first….. if he takes the offer or counter offers, then great……if he ignores you then forget it……but just blowing the whole thing off cause you supposedly talked to someone that didn't want to play first……I doubt he talked to anyone, probably had Bobby Evans email the agent and ask if he liked playing first or some !@#$……so as Dunn blisters Cain to the right center alley, I can only think of how many more games we could have won last year, and which Giants prospects Sabean is considering on trading to get him this year…..!@#$ jackass…..

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
CAIN
Well……got the !@#$ kicked out of him by Dunn as mentioned……but also gave the Nats their first run with that Jamarcus Russell Spiral to Pat Burrell in the 1st….and then with the Mighty Strasburg on the verge of being lifted, he got a big time nibble going in the 6th after a Dunn Rocket…..with back to back walks and a bloop leading to a couple runs……and then of course the hinges came off in the 7th….

BOCHY
You know, did you really need to leave Cain out there to be devoured? That can't be good for the kid…..he got lucky to get out of the 6th on a throw behind the runner at 1st, and then the first 2 runners in the 7th got on base……and then a couple outs later ……BOOOM…….8 runs…..thats always good for the confidence……

TORRES
Torres has had a reputation of getting his wheels banged up……and groin tightness is actually worse than it sounds…..cause this means we get more Rowand……

HINSHAW
Well……6-8 weeks for Runzler?....that sucks……now Affeldt is the lone leftie in the pen, and the door might open for Hinshaw……but lets hope not, cause he is walking like 15 batters an inning in AAA….

(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..)

Nice Merk! Maybe we should all chip in for a billboard near the park that says FIRE SABEAN!

I was thrown off by your Bobby Evans reference. Bobby Evans is also a sporting goods store located in my hometown of Wichita Falls, TX. My dad, being a football coach, knows him really well and I have been getting !@#$ there since I was a little kid getting my first glove and cleats! Obviously that Bobby Evans is alot cooler than the one you were referencing.
