GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> ROCKIES at GIANTS 08/31



And you thought the Giants were going to let you off easy….. End of August, and they fold up shop on the season letting you deflate your hopes for the season and focus on more fruitful endeavors….. but that’s not Giants baseball…..nope, they will find a way to torment your soul until the final days of the season…..holding out hope that somehow someway this is going to be their year…..and the screwed up thing is, as painful as last night was…..they are still in this…..and with the Padres sudden swoon, the Giants are not just chasing the Phillies….but also the Padres for the division……the Giants are only 4 games back of the Padres and they still have 7 games to play against the Padres…..that only leaves us virtually 11 games back……

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> ROCKIES at GIANTS 08/31

GAMEBALL

BUMGARNER

Brad Who? Think back to early in the year when Penny was dealing, Bumgarner couldn't break a plane of glass and Wellemeyer was getting torched…..well maybe Sabean knew what he had but maybe he didn't……but looking back seems almost silly to think about……and with all the fuss about the Super 2 status on Posey……that late year call up of Bumgarner almost assures him of avoiding that extra arbitration year……
Bumgarner bounced back tonight weaving in and out of trouble and pitching in a double smoked to Right Center for the go ahead RBI……yeah, this kid is a keeper……and yeah, Sabean probably didn't want to cough up more money for pitching, especially with Penny's injury history…..and yeah Bumgarner was talented……but he didn't know that Madison would be good so quick…….he got lucky…….

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
TORRES
Could have given the gameball here as well, with the Giants losing the late lead things could have turned for the worse VERY quickly…….but Andres answered RIGHT BACK with a sky shot over the wall in left…..and he is outhomering his house mate the Panda 14-10….and yes, still has a higher SLG than Howard .502 - .499

POSEY
And yes, perhaps the popular choice for the gameball……GUNNED down Gonzales in the 6th……and they gave the Giants the sorely needed 9th inning cushion with a 2 run double off the bricks…..

SANCHEZ
Man he turned that around quick….just 2 weeks ago he was on the pine sporting a .261 average and Big Head was talking about Freddy trying to "find his swing"….well I don't know who's swing he found, but its been good for a 23-48 stretch which has his batting average up to .289 and made what was looking like his worst full season into an average one for Freddy…..which is a hollow batting average with little speed, power, or on base ability other than his BA……so keep that BA up Freddy…..and lets see if we can add a few more points while you are at it……

RAMIREZ
Made quick work of the 7th after Bumgarner's exit

WILSON
Made quick work of the 9th….

JOKER

CORREIA
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The Padres extend their season long losing streak to 6….and their starting pitching suddenly looking mortal…Latos is still dealing…Richard remains solid……Garland is still giving short solid outings……but at the back end of that rotation, it is starting to come apart….LeBlanc has been roughed up not getting past the 4th inning in 3 of his last 4……and Correia has laid 3 stinkers in a row…..giving up 20 runs in his last 3 starts……and with Chris Young on a rehab, Correia is the likely candidate to get bumped…….hey, I didn't say the Padres were falling apart, but that NL best staff is suddenly not so strong…….of course it means nothing if the Giants can't capitalize….

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
PABLO/ URIBE
With the Giants up by a run in the 7th…..runners on 1st and 3rd……failed to get a single run home on back to back K's

MORA
I believe my exact words were…..MELVIN !@#$ MORA…..good god, is this guy still in the league?? it isn't just the marginal Haristons and Ecksteins……but the !@#$ washed up vets like Garret Anderson, Giambi and now Mora???....!@#$, and if I remember correctly he had a game winner against us early this year…….man, apparently its easy to hit Giants pitching……just make sure you SUCK versus everyone else and play in the NL West….

(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..)

Random Melvin Mora stat:

When he was six years old, his father was murdered in front of him in Venezuela-- by men who mistook his father for someone else.
