GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DBACKS 09-06






GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at DBACKS 09-06

GAMEBALL
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
BUM
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Bum picked a good night to be lights out….going 7 scoreless for the 2nd time in his career……yes, the teams in the race are coming up with inventive ways to get rest to their rookie arms….. the Reds put Leake in the pen and now on the DL…….the Pads had Latos miss time with a mysterious injury and now pushed back a day with the "Flu"…..but Bumgarner keeps right on pumping past his 2009 inning number of 141 up to 168 and counting……and with about 6 starts left he is likely to push 200 innings in the Majors and Minors…..and tell you what, I say go for it…. they have kept his pitch count at or below 100 for 8 straight starts….and he is far from a max effort guy and who knows when we will get this close again…..and flags fly forever……..

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
NATE
Came up with the big hit in the 11th to put the Dbacks out of misery…….

PEN
Lopez and Ramirez bailed Bumgarner out of a 1 out and a runner at 3rd situation. Affeldt and Casilla made quick work of their innings, and Wilson appeared in his 17th consecutive game for the save….

HUFF/ RENT
2 hits is a big game these days……

POSEY
The one his that fell in the 11th, and the one that was robbed in the 9th….

TORRES
Couple big time plays and a couple he made look easy……

JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
DODGERS
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The big news in the NL West tonight was the Padres stuffing a pathetic Dodgers team into the wound and stopping the bleeding at 10 games…. with Latos pushed back a day due to the "flu," the Dodgers couldn't capitalize on emergency starter Stauffer and a band of 6 relievers…and Padilla was yanked early after giving up 3 early runs……and in an interesting coincidence Latos will now be facing Tim Lincecum next Sunday in San Diego……

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
BATS
Sure Kennedy has been shutting down the league in general, but the Giants bats have been asleep for a week and managing just enough runs to support a pitching staff that has been pitching their balls off……guess it would be too much to ask that we hit and pitch at the same time……but hell, 1 game back in September is a good place to be and there is still time to get hot…..in fact, lets get hot in about a week and then keep it rolling right into the playoffs…….ok, that CERTAINLY was too much to ask……..

(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..)

Don't forget to add Cardinals Jamie Garcia in that mix of rookie arms. I would only put Bum slightly behind Garcia out of all the rookie arms. Maybe Neftali Feliz as well.

I'm sure the Flukedres purposely planned this so Latos could meet head to head with Timmy. These games against Arizona are big, but the games against San Diego are 10x bigger.

We can really bury the Pads in their own yard if our starting pitching shows [sign in to see URL] the same time the Pads could do the same to us.

I really enjoy these G & J threads!! Last night is why I wish Nate had more of a shot for playing time. He has such a natural linedrive swing and I love to see it. If only he would elevate his swing he would have more power but that's not his game. Now if only we can teach him not to get picked off late in a scoreless ballgame!!
