GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at NATIONALS 07/11




GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at NATIONALS 07/11

GAMEBALL

BUMGARNER

Man, this kid is looking good….just a few months removed from talk about how he was likely hurt and a waste of a pick, he has turned that story around with a strong follow up to his best career start……I have a hard time believing what I am seeing…..low 90's with movement from a low 3/4rs extreme leftie angle from the left side of the rubber…looks like he is out of control, but when you look up……well, he's a strike thrower with 0 walks on the day and a total of 8 walks and 31 K's in 38 career innings…..that's less that 2 walks per 9, and over 7 K's per 9…..so he throws strikes and don't walk people…..yes, and he is also a GROUNDBALL pitcher, as evidenced today with two well timed Double Play balls to snuff would be Rallies in the 1st and 2nd and get him setlled in……his Ground Out/ Fly Out ratio is just about [sign in to see URL] in the bigs this year, but he has a career minor league ratio of [sign in to see URL] and a ridiculous ratio of [sign in to see URL] in Fresno this year……which is critical, cause when you look at Madison, the one thing we HAVE seen in the bigs so far is coughing up the big homer…..keep it on the ground, keep the walks to a minimum, and punch out a decent amount, and you got yourself something special……and the kid can't even buy a beer for another month……hell, he's so young he doesn't even know who Francisco Liriano is…..and maybe he can make me forget…….

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
ISHIKAWA
Tough pass on Ishi…..came up with the big single to get the early jump on Livan….but I don't feel so bad, cause the way things are playing out, I think Travis might win a few more gameballs before the year is through…..

POSEY
I think this says it all

FSANCHEZ
Sac bunt in the first…..may have seemed strange, especially since he 4 for 10 lifetime versus Livan…..but he knows just like we do…..believe in Buster and he will set you free…..

WILSON
The man who drives us nuts, has turned into Mr Ace in the Hole of late……

ROMO
Great sequence to get Willingham……but that second slider to IRod was a location mistake across the belt and IRod had it timed…..and a little juice to that swing and its long gone…..

HUFF
All he does is score runs……

URIBE
Got the 2 out base hit for insurance and a change of momentum in the 8th

ZACK WHEELER
Nice inning for the kid…..and I do mean kid……95-96 on the gun…..what the heck is he dong in the futures game anyway? 8 career pro games…..well, he didn't embarrass himself….

FRANCISCO PEGUERO
1 for 2 against much more advanced competion….

JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
PABLO
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Been a year since Pablo was an All Star Snub, and his second half last year was even better than the first as he found his power stroke and was working counts while maintaining his ridiculous batting prowess …..Alongside Timmy, he became the face of the Giants with Camp Panda in the news all offseason, his own bobblehead day, commercial spots, and thousands of Panda Hats sold…….here was the budding star spraying the ball around the field picking it at 3rd and bouncing around the dugout…..well, today is was the ball through the wickets…another 0 fer… no power to speak of……and his lowest batting average since opening day……Keep this up and we will be in the market for a 3rd baseman, and all those Panda Hats for sale will end up in the Rubber Chicken warehouse collecting dust……

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
AFFELDT
Got Dunn to reach for one, but went all Xavi on the ball for a run scoring single and bring the tying run to the plate

RAY
Not untouchable……I say we file a complaint about the trade to the commish office

NATE
With Ishi hitting and Huff in left, you got to stay ahead of Burrell for at bats……and sure the D is superior, but you gotta hit sometime, or we are looking at a lot of Huff in right……and nobody wants to see that, especially at home….

BURRELL
Man, you've been sitting for awhile…..guess when Posey is on fire, we can afford a defensive piece out there in the outfield…but don't get too comfortable, have the feeling some playing time is comin your way soon

JSANCHEZ
Who's my #5,…..yes, you are…….with the emergence of Bumgarner, ….a solid Tim and Matt…..and a less than sucky Zito……well, you my friend are the last man on the totem pole ……sorry Jon, keep those bags packed…….

(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..)

PS Bumgarner as a Control Strikeout Groundball Pitcher? That’s more rare than Pablo eating Salad

had to say that, didn't know how to work that in there
