GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> CUBS at GIANTS 08/09




GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> CUBS at GIANTS 08/09

GAMEBALL
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
BULLPEN
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
6 Pitchers 5 1/3 innings, 2 hits, 1 walk, 8 K's…..and off course the BIG W…..The bullpen was simply kick ass after a shortish outing by Bumgarner…..Bowker Martinez and Turpen was a cheap price to pay for a couple middling arms that seem to have gelled the pen…..and throw in the trade of Molina for Ray and Micheal Main…you basically traded some spare parts for a bullpen depth and a prospect upgrade (Turpen to Main)……so the Giants get help NOW, and the prospect core is intact…..hell even the more fringe prospects are intact……anyway you slice it, that’s !@#$ good stuff……

TIP OF THE CAP :
POSEY
A couple early line drive outs, but then got the big double got the offense started for the Giants

TORRES
made up for his earlier K with the bases juiced, with a seeing eye single through the left side to tie the game

BURRELL
I am sure he was fuming when Trammel walked Posey to set up the game winner…..he was swinging at that first pitch and he was swinging hard…...yeah, you're right….. he always swings hard…..

RENT
Looks old on defense, but got 2 hits including the leadoff single to start the game winning rally…..

BUMGARNER
Punched dugout with his non-pitching hand……now that’s veteran savvy right there…..

COMMERCIALIZING the DEAD
You know what, I am ok with this……deadheads have long been Hippie Entrepreneurs with their selling of illict and non illict substances to fund following the band…..you can't blame the Giants for cashing in on a good thing……

JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
DEADHEADS
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
OK, !@#$ crunchy hippes have every much right to be at a ballgame and cheer for the Giants as anyone……but a few things bother me…..first of all I !@#$ HATE Patchooli…..good god, Patchooli does not take the place of soap…..instead of BO, you just smell like Patchooli and BO…….second, I don't want to buy your vegan falafel pita, go peddle that !@#$ somewhere else……third, quit huffing so much nitrous…..affectionately nicknamed Hippie Crack in my youth, that !@#$ is straight up brain cell repellant…….and for the women….shave your pits……I mean good god, this isn't France…..!@#$ nasty…..like 10x nastier than hair legs……makes me cringe just thinking about it…….and lastly, you are not a hardcore Giants fan…sorry, if you have no idea where you left your Hacky Sack, let alone who Sergio Romo is, you are just not hardcore……

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
FLANNERY
Tough one……after that bobble, with 2 outs….with Renteria coming up…..I think you have to take a chance and send him and hope for an errant throw…..was a lot closer than I thought it would be……but in the end he had no chance…..

SANDOVAL
RBI Double ticked off the glove and the error on the double clutch and short hop throw to 1st……

MERKIN
I grew up in the Bay Area and went to 20-30 dead shows while I was in High School and College….The Greek, the Coliseum, Frost, and Cal Expo were the venues, and I can say I was a Poser….well, at least in the sense I never really was a big fan of the Dead……but many of my friends were….and I loved to party and have fun and really the whole scene was a blast…..the Chemicals, the Music, the People, even some of the Women….all that !@#$ was pretty !@#$ cool and I had as much fun as one can have and still be alive….but somewhere along the line I got old, cut my hair, grew up and moved on…..

WELLEMEYER
Sent packing after 1 appearance in the bigs…….gotta love it, the org has a sense of urgency and with the addition of a couple bullpen arms, Todd became the odd man out……


But Seriously, it's San Francisco and that means that everyone can do whatever the !@#$ they want as long as they don't disturb the rights of others…..and not all Dead Heads meet the stereotypes I portrayed……but stereotyping is a lot more fun to read and get excited about……wouldn't be too entertaining if I just went along with their [sign in to see URL] I really REALLY hate Patchooli

(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..)

I don't see how that could be considered Flannery's fault. How do you not score from first on a double that was bobbled?! It wasn't Bengie out there! emoticon

Ishikawa conceded that he tried to put it into another gear and realized he didn't have one.

We'd feel better if we thought Ishikawa was the exception on this team and not the rule.

I can only imagine the contemporaneous, power-driven pantloading that would have happened around here had Flannery held Ishikawa at third on that two-out play.

no doubt, and rightfully so! Flannery was right to send him.

merkin with an excellent dirty hippie description. wash yourselves dirtbags. get jobs you lazy !@#$. seriously, the movement was over 35 years ago. jerry is dead, phish sucks, it's over. if you are asking for money playing music on the street and you need a shower, you're not a street performer, you're a bum. my advise is to do what your parents did, get a job!
