GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> METS at GIANTS 07/18






GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> METS at GIANTS 07/18

GAMEBALL

ISHIKAWA

Playing time has been hard to come by, but Travis has made the most of it when he is in there……and today, in a clutch pinch hit at bat he laced a 2-2 fastball to center to to plate 2 runs to tie the game, and then game around to score the run that beat the Mets in the 9th……just a few months ago Ishikawa was an afterthought, a useless part, a vestigial organ like the Appendix of the Human, the Wings on an Ostrich or Eyes on an Umpire….Good job bringing home the victory…….

TORRES
Big double set up the winning run in the 9th…..

JSANCHEZ
Pitched erratically, but well enough to keep the Mets in check and give the Giants a chance to win

URIBE
missed some early chances, but came up with a big single in the 9th inning rally

PANDA
Yes, good news is that he IS looking very good all of a sudden…..and took 2 walks today including a BIG BIG walk to start the 9th……maybe the stories of working with his brother during the all star break is more than just a fluff piece……

JOKER

CUZZI

Man, this guy is a !@#$ clown…….the ever shifting strike zone was pissing both teams off…..expanding the zone early in the count and then tightening it up late in the count……and then as tempers got heated, he let the emotion of the game cloud his tiny !@#$ brain, blowing an OBVIOUS call…..I mean come on, you don't get calls easier than that……I assume you know where the plate is……all you have to do is watch the glove and the tag…..and if you WERE watching the glove and the tag you woulda seen that not only did Ishkawa TOUCH the plate, his foot was PAST the plate……and yes the Giants won 3 out of 4, but that has nothing to do with it…..the Giants battled and came back and won this !@#$ game……and its bigger than just one game……it’s a L instead of a W…..and its about momentum into a HUGE series in Los Angeles…..!@#$ Umpires NEED to be held accountable……dock their pay for missing big calls, or something……they just go back to the clubhouse and call it a bad day and move on, while the teams involved live with the consequences of their mistakes……and umpires like Cuzzi, who have a history of blowing calls under pressure need to be sent to AAA, just like a player who fails…….but what can you expect from an idiot like Cuzzi, its genetic……here is a photo taken with his two brothers……no, that’s not Larry Baer on the right……

WILSON
After getting Davis 1-2, he threw 3 straight slider things, and the last one was belt high…..and by that time Davis had a real good look at that pitch…….the !@#$ tard was overthinking it……don’t throw that !@#$ back to back, it AINT that good……you reach back and throw hard and then do it again, then mix in the slider…..you don’t feature the !@#$ slider…..jackass

SABEAN
13 pitchers coming off 3 off days……yeah, that’s bright….and after your starters AVERAGED 8 innings over the last three games, that looks even brighter…..and then with the roster hamstrung, and you can't pinch hit in a crucial spot in the 10…..well, you are the jackass…….tell me you wouldn't rather have Bowker hit in Whitesides spot in the 10th….or have Nate hit with Bowker on deck to force them to pitch to Nate……either way…..!@#$ stupid….

BOCHY
OK, how the !@#$ do you NOT get thrown out of that game…..good god, even Felipe Alou woulda woken from his perpetual coma and gotten run there…..let the !@#$ UMP HAVE IT…EMBARRASS HIM OUT THERE…..its the only reprimand an ump will get…. ..so show some passion and some fight…..if not for your team, for the fans……

(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..)

Seriously. Bochy needed to man up and get his money's worth. Instead he walked back to the dugout with his tail between his legs.
