GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> ROCKIES at GIANTS 08/30




Back again, this time it was Work, Illness, and going to Ballgames……I got to figure out this whole independently wealthy thing soon….hell I would settle for dependently wealthy if you know any rich cougars looking for some Merkin Love……but enough about me……

Was a perfect night for the Giants to make a move…..unfortunately the only movement they would have involved the 9th inning and their bowels……yes with all the playoff rivals losing, and Jonathan twirling a good ol' 1-0 gem, the Giants found a way to squander 9th inning lead at home…..the 2nd such loss on the homestand the first being last week's comeback from 10-1…and these exceptional last innings losses have just been the start of the inventive ways the Giants have lost this year…..I swear I must have thought at least 4 different times that we had just suffered our worst loss of the season……I swear I am still pissed off about bonecrusher…..these are losses that PENNANT winners WIN NOT LOSE……..

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> ROCKIES at GIANTS 08/30

GAMEBALL
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
SANCHEZ
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Good god…..that game was the reason we keep him and the reason we want to trade him all rolled into one……masterful with nasty stuff all night…..but in the end, when the pressure is on he unraveled……after getting a quick 0-2 on Fowler……4 straight balls, of which the first 3 weren't even close…..and they way Sanchez wasn't throwing strikes and the way he doesn't hold runners, he forced his way out of the game……

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
HUFF
Couple walks a run scored…..and a deep drive to left in the 9th that might been out of here during the heatwave last week

POSEY
Had some ugly swings at offspeed pitches……but was able to come up with the only RBI of the night…..

JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
ROSS
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
I am just at a loss for words…..I want to defend and make excuses for Ross…..but I can't, that is simply a ball you must catch…..yes, it was hard hit…..yes, it was a broken bat ball that sailed……but you simply must catch that ball……yes, my first thought was it was falling in front of him, but I am watching on TV……and he is the professional….and the ball was ENTIRELY catchable…….add to that a MISERABLE night at the plate with 2 strikeouts and the only ball in play a Double Play that killed the only Giants rally of the night…….and our newcomer is the joker……..but I still rather see him play RF over the Sloth that is Guillen…….

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
F SNACHEZ
Couple errors to bring his season total to 4…….and the game blowing error in the 9th with a 47 hopper that rolled it's way into Gonzales and out of play……he makes that throw on a line and they got him by 5 feet…….

WILSON
He got over in time, but was WAY too close to back up that play……you got to be further away from third than that, BECAUSE of the unexpected bounces……all you have to do is knock it down……you knock it down, Car Go ain't going anywhere, and we can go ahead and lose in 14th instead……

(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 when he gets inducted to Cooperstown..)

My Nana is 77 years old. She's the biggest Giants fan I know. I can't even begin to imagine how she feels about all this.

Bochy is a fuuuuucking tool.
You DO NOT let Sanchez bat leadoff in the 8th in a one run game.
Instead you have a speedy NATE bat lead-off and then play right field in the 9th.
 NOT Some newbie to the team who isn't NEARLY as familiar, nor as good in RF as Nate is defensively.

FUUUUUCK YOU BOCHY

I CALLED THIS LOSS the moment I saw Durty step into the batters box.


I HATE BEING A BETTER MANAGER THAN BOCHY

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOU BOCHY


PS-

FUUUUUUUCK YOU BOCHY

I'm so GLAD that you finally posted a write up
Merk!

I was so utterly disgusted after last nights
loss, I was completely at a loss for words. I had
a long day so I just shut off the tube and went
to bed. So I came looking for a write up this
morning!

Thank you Merk, if your post was anything, it
was cathartic.... I might just pass on the
Alka Seltzer this morning after all!!

But then I read Ninebucks post and all the
unresolved anger comes shooting back like
long suppressed family issues on Thanksgiving! emoticon

Looks like it just maybe a double plop plop
fizz fizz morning after all! emoticon

------------------------
This is disappointing to learn.
Not only does all of this make perfect sense but you let a young pitcher leave the game without any negative feelings AND you give your closer a clean slate to begin the 9th.
No closer likes to enter the game with a runner on.

Giants win it all in 1954
Stretch born in 1955

Hmmm....

I'm going to guess late May as a birthday. The Giants had just won 14 of 19 to move into 2nd place (after a poor start) and then promptly lost 25 of 38 to drop to 5th place before stumbling into 3rd place at 80-74.
