GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DODGERS 07/19




Why in the hell do I watch this !@#$….this isn't fun, this is exactly as Kuiper described……sweating palms, sinking feeling in my stomach…..man, I can't handle this ….but when the high flying circus act is done I look up and the scoreboard and we won……man, the way the Giants played I feel like we lost…… sloppy sloppy play…5 walks, gaffes in the field and on the bases and we still got the W……man, if they played like they should, this wouldn't have been a contest……But instead of putting on their game faces and playing focused championship ball, the Giants backed into the win relying on Houdini acts inning after inning…..the Giants are lucky that the Dodgers are cold, cause they played like !@#$…..some one needs to take hold of this locker room and give them some focus…..they play like they are all playing their first !@#$ game in the majors……Your rival should bring out YOUR BEST, not this shitty brand of ball they have played…. I don't know what's going to shake them, but they sorely need some confidence against the Dodgers……and I don't care how many times you beat LA, if you play like you did tonight, you are still going to play tight sloppy ball….

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DODGERS 07/19

GAMEBALL

AFFELDT

Well someone had some fire and announced his presence with authority……Thrown into the fire …nursing a shirnking lead with the bases juiced to perhaps the most clutchy active player in the NL…..and with zero room for error, he stemmed the time getting Ethier to bounce out to end the threat…..and then came back out for the 8th and got the ball to the closer only giving up a 2 out bouncing single to Kemp….and in my favorite at bat of the night, just plain broke down Loney on a curveball for strike three….and as Loney walks back to the dugout, he glares at the mound looking pissed off at Affeldt for throwing something so nasty…..

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
NATE
The BOMB that extended the lead in the 4th was huge, lets hope the bench did for him, what it did for Ishikawa

BUMGARNER
The youngster in enemy territory had ice water in his veins….kept the Dodgers in check for 5 innings, but fell victim to the pitch count and was pulled in the 6th……but you know he woulda loved to stay out there for 200 pitches…..

WILSON
On a night where nothing was easy, why would Wilson be any different…..with a little help from a moving strike zone, alternated base runners with strike outs for the bases loaded save…….

PABLO
BIG double to score the games second run, and speared every line drive in a 4 block radius….

TORRES
Doubled and scored the Giants first run of the night

SANCHEZ
Got the ball in the air this time, and converted a BIG insurance run in the 8th…..

ISHIKAWA
Got on base ahead of Nat's Bomb, and walked and scored to lead off the 8th….

POSEY
Single to plate the first run of the game, and made the heady play getting on the umps to end the 8th on Belliard's swing and miss…..

JOKER

ROMO
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Romo is no stranger to the Dodgers…..his bomb to Manny from early in the year is a staple of Dodgers television, working its way into highlight reels and commercials and the like…..so I am sure the Dodgers were salivating at the prospect of facing Romo again with the game on the line…..and he didn't disappoint…..turning a 2 out and man on first, into based loaded and the Dodgers "Captain Clutch" come to the plate…..INEXCUSABLE….how the !@#$ do you walk JAMEY FREAKING CARROLL to load the bases???? and not only that, but on 4 straight pitches…..the game was over right there……just handed to the Dodgers on a silver plater……I walked away from the TV, feeling as if Romo had just screwed my girlfriend and kicked my dog……or maybe kicked my girlfriend and screwed my dog……whatever, that doesn't matter….all I know is that Romo's stuff isn't good enough to get by without control……and I don't even mean throwing strikes…he has to LOCATE his pitches…..and good god, how can he LOCATE his pitches, when he barely knows where homeplate is……sorry, but until Romo gets it worked out, and/ or Runzler comes back, the bullpen is now the weak link…….

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
PABLO
And on the other side of the ledger, made one of the biggest boneheads of the night going for the tag instead of the force, handing the Dodgers a run…..yes, the run shouldn't have scored, but Loney coulda easily started a rundown…..and sorry, the throw to first is more of a sure thing than ANY rundown……you see that play a !@#$ billion times, and a billion times the infielder throws the ball to first, like they are supposed to…..well, I guess Pablo found out why tonight…..

TORRES
Taking a page from the bonehead playbook, Torres forgot how many out there were in the 8th, getting doubled off first and ending a prime opportunity to put the Dodgers away….

!@#$ UMPIRES
Well, that strike zone wasn't as bad a Cuzzi, but it was moving big time…..to the benefit/ detriment of both teams……but the in the daily screw the Giants call of the day, they gave the Dodgers their second run on the tag play……good god, are any if these idiots paying attention????? are the just tired??? man, these umps are !@#$ killing us…lets just hope that Old Frank Robinson cracks some skulls….

(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..)
