GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DBACKS 07/24




Good teams get fat on the weak…..I have heard that 100x, usually when we are losing to the weaker teams…..so figured I would say it when the Giants are actually getting the job done, going 9-1 in their last 10 versus teams under .500, and are a NL best 27-9 versus teams under .500……of course they have gone 5-2 versus teams above .500 during that same timeframe….well 6-1 if you ignore Cuzzi's vision impairment…..

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DBACKS 07/24

GAMEBALL

BUMGARNER

The Big Leftie keeps on dealing and tonight he breezed through 5 throwing strikes and challenging the DBacks to swing….a couple doubles a single and a bunch of strike outs……then after a solo shot in the 6th, the Giants lengthened their lead and after a Sac Fly Madison handed the game over to the pen with just 2 innings to pitch…..which was critical for a Pen missing Affeldt and Runzler, and with Romo going 30 pitches the night before……

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
URIBE
Chase Field plays like Coors Field Light….and with the state of the Giants pen, scoring runs and then more runs was critical…..and Uribe did the piling on tonight golfing a first pitch fastball into the left field seats for the granny

POSEY
2 MORE hits 2 walks and a RBI……and tied some guy named Cepeda on the Giants Rookie hit streak list with 17 games……and list no one has talked about since Gladden hit in 15 straight in 1984…..3 years before Buster was born…..I just made half of you feel really really old, didn't I…….

HUFF
3 hits….but the run scoring ground out in the 1st was the most critical piece…..the team that scores first, won't be shutout……that’s a fact

RENTERIA
Double in the corner to start the party…..and the box score says he had another hit, but at this point its all a blur…….

TORRESS
2 hits for the little man as well…….and a rocket to the plate to keep Young from tagging in the 1st……big play too keep the DBacks off the board in their best threat of the first 6 innings……when it was still close……

ROWAND
Didn't do !@#$ at the plate, as usual…..but ran down a couple shots deep in center that looked like they were gonna fall……not the fastest guy on the field, but good instincts and sure hands……

JOKER

ROCKIES
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The Rockies are the team that most people were looking to as the West favorite….and when they are hitting on all cylinders, they are a legitimate World Series threat……but so far this year, they have been a 1 cylinder engine going 16-4 when Ubaldo starts and 35-41 in all other games……Hammel, Cook, Francis, Smith, and de la Rosa all sport ERA's above the league average with only Chacin just a hair better than average…..So the Rockies owe most of this season success to Ubaldo…..garnering not only Cy Young talk, but even perhaps an MVP…..and rightly so as he has been nearly untouchable in 2010….but things have turned and in five of his last six starts he has been touched more than ] Macaulay Culkin on a long weekend at Neverland ….and today his 2 innings was matched his career shortest outing from 2007 when he was just getting his feet on the ground…..but don't count Ubaldo out quite yet, as he is still throwing as hard as ever and throwing strikes…..but lets hope it takes him a little while to get straightened out….

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
LIFE
Man, always full of bummers…..Velez's unfortunate incident is a good example…..I hear the damage is only a concussion….."ONLY" only applies if its not your head…..ouch…….glad to hear you are otherwise ok…….

PABLO
I don't know any details, and shouldn't pass judgement on people…..then again, that never stopped me before…..sounds like Pablo hit the big time, and decided to upgrade to a new woman……too bad the old woman didn't like being the trade in model…..good luck in Venezuela……and hope its just a simple case of love gone wrong…..

GIBSON
score is 7-2…..7th inning…and you ARE PLAYING THE INFIELD IN????? yeah gotta hold it to 5 runs, cause its hard to come back from 6 down……dumbass…..single past the drawn in infield and a few batters later its 10-2…….

(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..)
