GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at NATIONALS 07/10






GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at NATIONALS 07/10

GAMEBALL

BUSTER

Well I guess it wasn't just Wisconsin….Buster is smoking hot right now, and man you gotta love the way the kid stings to ball to all fields……4 more hits including a single to get the rally started in the 2nd down by 2, a ringing double to set the table in the 6th down by 2, and a 2 run shot to put the game away in the 9th….but lets go back to the sequence that flipped the game for the Giants…..Bottom of 6th, with the Giants down by a run, Buster made the aggressive play on the bunt with no one out and gunned down the runner at 3rd…..and then after Desmond stole second, he gunned Desmond at third to rack up his second assist of the inning and change the momentum of the game……move to the Top of the 7th with Posey in his biggest At Bat of the game hit a hot shot two hopper through the right side in the 6th to plate the go ahead run after fighting off 2 straight 3-2 pitches…add to that…man, in just his first few months of the majors Buster has already become a fan favorite, a the new savior of this team……and with his youth, and talent its hard not to go overboard with enthusiasm…..and looks like the Giants Org have also fallen victim to Busteritis…….here is a shot of the newly erected statue across the water from ATT Park…..

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
URIBE
After a 1 pitch DP in the 2nd, I admit I was cursing Uribe…..but he turned that on its head quick…..converted the runner at 3rd with a sac fly in the 6th…..and then in the 7th, after Clippard was knocked from the game, on the first pitch from Slaten…Uribe split the gap in right to plate 2 more runs to give the Giants some breathing room

ROWAND
Plays well off the bench??? Hey a leadoff single to start the game, and then yanked a 3-2 fastball out of the park to tie the game…..not sure which is more surprising…..Rowand came up with a bit hit, or Rowand had a 3-2 count in an at bat

HUFF
Even when he isn't getting the big hit, he is doing damage with 2 walks and single and 3 runs scored…..

NATE
Somewhat lost in the 8 runs, was the quick response to the Nats early 2 spot……Nate doubled home the first run of the game, and set the table for Sanchez's single that tied the game….

BULLPEN
With a few assists here and there…..put up 5 1/3 scoreless…….and special tip to Affeldt, Romo, and Ray…..with Runzler hurt, and Mota Casilla and Bautista struggling with control…..these three are the bridge to Wilson…..they need to come up large for the Giants to compete……and I just scared myself…..

PABLO
Great play in the 6th to nail Bernadina on the errant throw from Posey….and 3 walks….you sure only 1 was intentional??? Was Sanchez Pitching to Pablo too?:

GIANTS FAN IN BLEACHERS
Nice Assist on the homer from Posey….I don't know the ground rules in DC, and.I don't know how soft that wall was, and how much backspin was on that ball….but it is possible that coulda hit the top of the wall and then spin back onto the field….well, when he caught it, the doubt was gone…….

JOKER

Well, he sure can hit…..on the 1 year anniversary of Sanchez's coming out party……well……the party looks to be over…..whatever corner he turned last year…..well, he turned back again…..the control isn’t there…..4.6 walks per 9 ain't gonna get it done….and when the opposition is teeing off on anything offspeed you throw up there……well, just get the pen going in the first cause its gonna be a quick night…….lets hope Sanchez gets it figured out soon, cause a few more starts like this and we couldn't get Cory Feldman back in a trade, let only Cory Hart…..

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
THAT PANDA LADY
Good God, she's !@#$ Waldo……She gets more airtime on home games than most of the players….and now she on a road trip to DC too???? Pretty sure that’s a violation of her parole……

RENTERIA
Didn't miss ya…..and I swear Uribe has more range…..hell Rick Reuschel could probably play a better shortstop…..

SABEAN
So hows that whole Super 2 thing working for ya…dumbass…Posey was ready with the bat in spring, and so you sent him to AAA when the Giants coulda sorely used this offense all year…….all for the sake of saving a few bucks in a few years…..well, as it turns out you called him up too early anyway, and who knows what the CBA will be in a few years anyway……and even if you do pay him that Super 2 money….good god is that so bad?....a better use of money than 90% of what you squandered on lousy free agent signings that are still on the !@#$ roster…….jackass……..

(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 passionate writeup.
And of course I enjoyed the Sabean smack down.

Great to feel enthusiastic about the G's now and then ain't it?!

THANKS Buster n' Huff.

no love for the manager?

KEY PLAY: 5-5 tie, runners on first and 2nd, 3-2 count on the rookie. Bochy starts the runners 3 straight times and it paid off big time. Sanchez doesn't score if he's not running. In fact, it might (probably not) be a DP if the runners don't go because the 2B, shaded toward 2B to keep Sanchez from getting a huge jump, froze once he saw Huff on the move. You can't say it didn't matter because Uribe doubled b/c baseball just doesn't work that way. We will never know the outcome if they aren't running but the call to run produced 3 runs.

Arguing on the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics. Even if you win, you're still retarded

Right now, the No.1 trending Twitter topic in San Francisco is Buster Posey. Probably discussing whether to make him mayor.
