GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> MARLINS at GIANTS 07/27




GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> MARLINS at GIANTS 07/27

GAMEBALL
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
URIBE
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Man, tough choice but we got to give it to the man who always seems to hit his homers in key spots of the game…..and tonight was no difference, greeting the first man out of the Marlins Bullpen Brian Sanches with a solo shot to give the Giants the lead in a tie game in the 8th….that was his 14th homer of the year….and of those 14 homers, 8 have either tied the game of given the Giants the lead……for comparisons sake, that’s as many as Huff who has a team leading 19 homers of which 8 have tied the game or given the Giants the lead……so its not you imagination……Uribe reeks of clutch…..and has one of the best beginnings to a HR trot I have seen …….

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
RENTERIA
A day after receiving more verbal internet abuse of anyone since star wars kid Rent responded with his first homer since his dramatic game tying shot in the bottom of the 9th during the home opener…..it was also the first time team trainers were able to detect a pulse since that home opener

TORRES
Man, he did everything he could to win his like 57th gameball of the year……getting a leadoff walk in the first against the big bad Josh Johnson…..then stroking a double to center to get the Giants going in a 2 run 3rd…..and then doubling in the 5th and scoring the 3rd run of the night on Johnson…breaking a streak of 13 starts in a row that Johnson had given up 2 runs or less…..and not only did Torres' 2 Doubles tie Werth for the NL Lead in Doubles….he also became the first player to have 2 doubles off Josh Johnson this year….not just in one game…..Torres is also 4th in the National League in extra base hits ahead of players like Ryan Howard, Matt Holliday, David Wright, Ryan Braun, and MVP Candidate Joey Votto……

CAIN
Pitched like he was on a mission, challenging the strike zone and matching Johnson pitch for pitch….. lost a couple challenges to Uggla and Ross…..but, kept the Giants in the game versus a tough opponent…

ROMO
Clean 8th inning for the W……and with the Giants pen thinned down by injury, ROmo is pitching his best stretch of the year….

ROW ROW
2 more hits and scored a run ahead of Renteria's Bomb…..and you might just be seeing Rowand getting Rowand on one of those patented hot months……which is fine by me, just remember to bench him when the party is over……

HUFF
Big time double the other way to plate the Giants first run of the game…

POSEY
Knocked in Huff for the second run before getting gunned going for 2……but with 2 outs against a tough pitcher, I will take that aggressive play

SANCHEZ
Two more hits…..including the RBI single in the 5th to give the Giants a short lived lead…..

JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
COGHLAN
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The reigning NL rookie of the year had a forgettable 2010……barely hitting his IQ in April and May, and after a hot June, had cooled again in July…….Coghlan was a Kevin Frandsen type, who because their marginal power and speed, derive their value from high contact/ average and on base skills…..…..and when those aren't showing up you are looking at a major liability in the lineup…….now slot that lack of production in an offensive position of Left Field….and its even MORE of a liability……now mix in a fired manager and a organization full of outfielders with power speed skills……and you have a player who should be worried about his job……..so when you hear about Coghlan needing knee surgery after a shaving cream pie celebration……well, chances are that Coghlan has seen his last days as a starter, and now he is likely looking at a change of organization to get another shot at a starting gig…..and for players without speed or power, that chance will be hard to come by……..not everyone is as lucky enough to get a second chance like Kevin Frandsen….

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
UGGLA
2 jacks and a L……well at least he shouldn't be complaining about the HR conditions of ATT

ISHIKAWA
The only staring offensive player that wasn't on the list…..and actually snuck a ground out into the middle of that 8th inning rally

BRIAN SANCHES
What the hell???? Spell check says you're an idiot…… is that supposed to be an Americanized version of Sanchez??? hey, you are in California….speak Spanish……Pelicula con queso por favor?

(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..)

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.

Great writeup... Also great to see quick reply is back. I do have one gripe though. Sanches with an -s- is portuguese, not spanish. Get your iberian names right next time!

I didn't catch it live, so I went to look for the highlight of Ross's HR to see the bat flip. It didn't look all that bad to me, but it was a side view. Maybe it looked worse live.

But in the MLB replay, it looked like Ross completely skipped over 3rd base as he was rounding the bases. Doesn't he still have to touch all the bags on a HR?
