GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DBACKS 07/23





Loooong day at the office…..that really isn't over yet as team India is working on the servers……forgive me if this is a bit short and tired……

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DBACKS 07/23

GAMEBALL
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
HUFF
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Freaking Huff picked a great place to go nutz…..with 2 solo shots setting the tone for the Giants offense……very often losing out a free agent turns into a good thing….losing out on Juan Pierre and Gary Mathews are two that jump out in recent memory…..of course neither of them worked out quite as well as losing out on LaRoche……as Mr Second choice has been trouncing LaRoches production, and guess which one is on a winner…..and sure LaRoche's wallet is a little heavier……but not only did LaRoche lose out on a bigger payday with the G Men…..he is basically watching Huff work his way into at least the same offer from the Giants this offseason…..sure Aubrey might be tempted to mention that to LaRoche….but he was too busy running around the bases to stop and chat……

And, although this was a work in progress from the other day, think its good enough to share on its own…and after a night like tonight, he deserves it……

TORRES
Hits Ball, Catch Ball, Run Fast

ISHIKAWA
Could be following in Torres footsteps… well, maybe a few years earlier…..

PABLO
Well, even when he only get 1 hit, he doesn't look nearly as lost up there……

WILSON
Ain't always pretty, but he is having a solid solid year……

JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
E JACKSON
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Edwin Jackson the Dodger Phenom…..made his major league debut on his 20th birthday beating the Dbacks…..that same year Felipe Alou guided the Giants to 100 wins, Tim Worrell had 38 saves, Joe Nathan had 12 wins out of the Pen, and Brian Sabean won executive of the year from the Sporting News and Baseball America…..seems like a lifetime ago…….in that time Edwin has gone from Phenom, to Scrub, to Journeyman, and now the Tease…..yes, that 2009 Campaign was a career year and Edwin brought great expectations to the desert as a major part of the rotation…..too bad he didn't bring composure with him, as he airmailed BACK to BACK bunts in the 7th, giving back the lead he was just handed and ultimately losing the game…..

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
CASILLA
Soooo nasty……soooooo scary…….I guess the 6th inning is the perfect spot for him……but even there……

JSANCHEZ
Same old Jonathan…..and perhaps even a little exaggerated tonight with his 5 walks and 10 k's and 109 pitches over 5 innings……man, I think this is good as it gets…….but with pitchers…..hell, they can figure it out anytime……I was hoping for Teddy Higuera….thinking it maybe Sid Fernandez……but I am afraid he may never be better than Oliver Perez…….

(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 writeup, and nice [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] Pufnstuf pic.

A Few mostly brief comments:

Sandolard looked like !@#$ at the plate, in spite of his one hit.

Chris Ray getting the win is a facking joke.

Andres Torres is a bling wearin' demi-god.

And our favorite former Giant-- Omar, is having a blast at 3B while batting .281 for his red-hot first place team.
Very confusing though, to have Omar and A.J. on the same team.
Makes me want to pray for a very selective tornado to rip through the mid-west, Death toll-- 1.

I remember Sid & Marty Kroft.I grew up on that show! The Bananna Splits,HR Huff-n-Stuff. You shoulda read my tweet after Aubrey's 2nd BLAST. Timmy can be Jimmy,and FP Santangelo can be Freddy the talking flute. That's about all that FP can be good for,b'cuz he really sucks as a baseball commentator.

I would also like to add that Sanchez the 2B, has looked like !@#$ as of late. He is now hacking at sliders in the dirt, ala Rowand. It is getting bad and he needs to snap the fack out of it.
