GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at ROCKIES 08/03




The seemingly Invincible Giants are actually quite Vincible… all it takes is the unfriendly confines of Coors Field, the favorite for the Cy Young on the mound, and a team full of sluggers facing your rookie #5 starter……all that being said, I guess that’s why this loss have evoked very little discontent in a fan base notorious for running around screaming and flailing their arms about any time the teams losing streak reaches 2……so, yes we lost…..and I really don't feel that bad……in fact all I can think of is bring on the Braves….

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at ROCKIES 08/03

GAMEBALL

HUFF
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Well no one told Mr Huff that Ubaldo was unhittable…..Huff got a bloop and a line drive to go 2 for 3 off the Untouchable One……but perhaps most impressive was the out, where it looked to be a sure DP……but the "best athlete on the team" beat it out without an problem……

TIP OF THE CAP :
FSANCHEZ
Also Collected 2 hits, although he cheated a little getting one of his hits of the Mortal Matt Belisle

POSEY
Got the lone RBI……and named Bad Ass !@#$ of the Month by [sign in to see URL]…..might not be as cool as NL Player of the Month, but it comes a pretty cool wallet

CASILLA/ MOTA
For not being related to Bautista….

JOKER

ANDRES

4 AB's…..4 K's……Andres was overmatched with 3 K's vs Ubaldo that included 5 swings and misses (ok, 4 but the umpire didn't have X-Mo on the K in the 1st)……this was Andres first career 4 strike out game and I don’t think anyone saw it coming…..coming off a 3 hit game and a hot July…….only 1 K off Ubaldo in 8 career PA's…..I will just write this off as a bad day……maybe he forgot his meds in Burrell's trunk……

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
AROD
ARod got to 600…and congrats……but after taking so long between 599 and 600….and being the youngest player to get to 600…..all I can hear is debate on whether or not he gets to 762……..It should be a piece of cake, but when you production had fallen off a cliff to the point where not only is he 4th on his own team in HR's, he is actually being outslugged by…..wait for it…….Andres Torres……and its not that close [sign in to see URL] compared to .467….

BOCHY
So I finally understand WHY Bochy has this Bautista fetish……He is using Denny because with the shortage of Lefties in the pen, Denny was the Leftie Specialist…..are you !@#$ SERIOUS???? Where the hell are you getting that??? is it because he throws a change up, cause I see NO evidence to support this "THEORY"…..Hey, I am all for subjective evaluation (check the sig), but come on Bochy, look at the numbers sometime……ok maybe THEORETICALLY he should get lefties out……but at this point he is an equal opportunity HACK…..

BAUTISTA
Hey, did you know he is a cousin of Pedro and Ramon Martinez??? I am guessing distant cousin……very very distant

BUMGARNER
Just because I have heard Wellemeyer's name invoked 20 times today

IANETTA
Do NOT try to "Cock Block" a fastball

PADILLA
No hitter into the 6th….Watching as Vinny told the feel good story, about how he was so hungry as a child he ate his brother or something……and after that line drive ticked of Loney's glove…. well, lets just say if you find Loney's body ] in the brush in Glassell Park … I bet I know who did it…..

(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..)
