GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DBACKS 07/25




GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DBACKS 07/25

GAMEBALL

Rookie of the Year??? Screw That… MVP……OK, maybe I'm getting a little carried away……but can you blame me…..The newest face of the franchise got off to a great start to his Giants career with a !@#$ load of hits and RBI's during his couple weeks in the Majors……and honestly, many of those hits were grounders finding holes really he had Woody like luck for a while…….the luck ran out and he looked to find his stride playing part time…..and then on June 30th Molina was traded to the Rangers, and the job was handed to Posey, and he has taken over….. ….a !@#$ line drive machine hitting .475 with 38 hits, 7 HR, 23 RBI, and 18 Runs….and today he notched his THIRD 4 Hit game of the MONTH…..Lets put that in perspective.... …..McCovey, Cepeda, Bonds, Kent, and Will never did this…. and only 5 Giants have done this in a San Francisco Uniform….Mays (06/61, 06/58), Matt Williams (05/95), Randy Winn (09/05), Ken Henderson (08/72), and Mike Benjamin? (06/95)…and so only Cepeda had three 4 hit games so early in his career……..and as excited as we all got about Panda's year last year……he only had three 4 hits games all of last season……so keep getting exicted Giants fans, and July isn't even over yet…….and try not think about Mike Benjamin….

JON MILLER
Congrats on the induction, and so glad you like fries……but mix in a salad now and then, we would like to listen to you for years to come……

ISHIKAWA
Has taken his pinch hitting success with him into the starting lineup with hits in 9 of 11 July Starts and his 5th multi hit game in those 11 starts……..oh yeah, got the go ahead hit in extra frames today as well……

RENTERIA
Doubled and scored the tying run in the 5th…..a tie that would last into Extras…..

HUFF
Ok lets see….Posey has 32 RBI's…….8 homers, means he has knocked himself in 8 times…so that’s 32-8….24……Huff has scored 24 runs on Posey hits this year…..math doesn’t lie……

ROMO
BLEW the coverage of 1st on a leadoff grounder in the 9th…..and after a sacrifice and a single to Right…..faced 1st and 3rd with 1 out……and Romo proceeded to nut up and strike out Gillespie and Young in back to back at bats……

TIMMY
Wasn't the Dominating Timmy we are used to, giving up the big double to the opposing pitcher….but otehrwise got out of jams to go 8 strong and give the Giants a chance for the W

WILSON
Clean 9th……few more years of this, and I think you can start mentioning him in the same breath as Nen and Beck…..maybe……

FSANCHEZ
Just for that sweet little dive play in in the 2nd

JOKER

BODY PAINT
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
OK, I am all for showing your colors….and especially admire it in enemy territory ….but there is a limit….half naked covered in body paint is NOT BASEBALL……this ain't !@#$ a Chicago Bears or a Nebraska Cornhuskers game…..and even there, no one looks at Body Paint Guy and says to themselves….."wow, there goes one really cool dude"……no their thoughts are more like……"I wonder if he is retarded or drunk"…well, my friends…..the answer is usually both……and don't think the cute girls are going to be impressed…….First of all, they usually don't !@#$ retards…..Second, they all know drunks are more likely to pass out than actually get a woody…..and Lastly, they don't want all that paint on their sheets let alone their body…..all the way round…..Body Paint, just a bad idea……and that's my public service announcement for the day……and if I helped just one kid avoid making an ass of himself, it was all worth it…….

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
NATE
OK, not sure what that was all about…..in the 10th, with the go ahead runner on 3rd and 1 out.,….Nate gets gunned …..dumb play, missed sign….don't know what that was all about…..and to add inury to insult…..teh swipe tag right to the [sign in to see URL] in line for the [sign in to see URL] wasn't for Ishikawa and Body Paint guy…..

DBACKS
Really…..Haren who is signed through 2012 for a reasonable contract…..traded for a end of the rotation starter and a couple decent, but not spectaular minor league arms…..and not only that, the trade was announced DURING the game…..good god, way to gut punch a team and its fan base WHILE the game is going on…..
UPTON
With the go ahead run on 3rd and 1 out,.Upton got doubled off first on a line drive to end the inning….just plain inattention…….probably wondering what it would be like to play on a winner…..

(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..)

If the dbacks want to get rid of their players for less than value...

We should be calling about Upton/Young ASAP!!

Either way, glad Haren is out of the NL West.
