GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at PADS 09/10




A watershed night for the 2010 Giants as they backed up their opening game with a second in a row versus the Southern LA Padres….yes, a great night but not the time to get overjoyed…..no, now is the time to put your foot on the throat of the Pads and take game 3……and every win is huge this time of year, and not just because it’s the Pads…..but because the NL Playoff landscape is in upheaval… The Braves, Reds, Phillies, Padres, and Giants are all within 2 games of each other and the hard charging Rockies are only 2 back of the Giants in the loss column…….

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at PADS 09/10

GAMEBALL
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
HUFF
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The battle of 90 feet was won by the Giants tonight…..and Huff snagged the 2 biggest chunks of 90 feet of the night….after being hit by pitch, got a good jump and stole 2nd on Gregerson….and then on a grounder to short gambled and just beat the tag at 3rd…….both pieces of 90 feet could be considered ill advised, but Huff got aggressive decisive jumps both times and as it turns out the gambles were exactly what the Giants needed and brought home the W……

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
NATE
For blowing up Eckstein like a Chinese Catcher (that was monkey) and likely taking some steam off the DP relay and allowing Huff to score…..

URIBE
For picking it clean at 3rd and legging out the run scoring Fielders choice….even though he got a little too creative trying to break up a home to 1st DP……

WILSON
Well…..not for his hitting…….and he's about 2 weeks of beard growth short of Joaquin Phoenix …..and about 50 cheezeburgers away from Zach Galifianakis

CASILLA
Man, when this guy is throwing strikes he is a big time weapon out of the pen…..and Santiago just notched his 7th win of the season…..which is 1 less than Zito……and since July 1st… he is actually LEADING the Giants in W's with 6 Wins compared to Cain and Bumgarner with 5………

JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
SANCHEZ
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Man……hard to get too pissed off when a starter goes 5 scoreless…..and yes, I have to acknowledge he had nasty stuff and was able to bear down to get out of trouble……but good god, is this kid always going to be a head case…….since his infamous guarantee, Sanchez has been pitching fairly well with 3 great efforts out of 4 starts……but tonight was a joke…… asking Sanchez to find a consistent release point was like asking Burrell to have a bad hair day…..just not gonna happen….and what the hell is up with scrubbing the SD logo off the back of the mound…..great, another reason for the Padres to be motivated to beat your ass…..not a good move, anyway you look at it……certainly the Pads took notice, and who knows is they take offense…..but that’s a good way to get one in the earhole……and it certainly didn't do anything to help your game…..hey here's a thought…..concentrate on YOUR OWN GAME….and when you get that !@#$ squared away you can bust out some trash talk and pull some TO celebrating on the 50 yard line in Dallas kind of !@#$ all you want……

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
TEJADA
Was Uribe's !@#$ on grounders to 3rd most of the night, especially on that Baltimore Chop Stumble…….and playing the ball deep in the hole and wide throw opened up 3rd for Huff and the Giants win…..

SANCHEZ
Yes, 2 hits……but with the Giants needing a bunt to set up an insurance run in a tense game…..well…….2 fouls and a swing and a miss and it was done……

(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..)

What a fantastic win tonight, and how ironic that Aubrey Huff scores the game-winning run.

I remember a game earlier this season in SD, where Huff made a great catch at 1B, fell into the stands for the 1st out. Then a Sac Fly brought the run home. Next thing you know the Giants lose 1-0.

That's revenge for that Fraudres!!!!!!!!

Merkin. I completely agree. Tomorrow we have to crush the Fraudres because soon we will be dealing with a new, now very real enemy in Roctober. Man I don't know which I hate more the Fraudres or [sign in to see URL]'s a toss up.

Anyways MadBum is ready for a game like this. This will be his coming out party, and hopefully the Giants really give it to Stauffer tomorrow. I want another HR Derby tomorrow. It will be a hot day and balls will fly.

GO GIANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!

YaY NATE!!!!(The international incident incarnate!)
 emoticon

He has directly had a hand this week in two of
the most crucial wins of the Giants season so
far!

So remind me again... We have Cody RossKO and
Jose Gullina for what again??

I am AOK with Durty scratching out the Padres logo.
And also AOK with David Shrimpstein's game losing pop-gun arm.

Way to go NATE!

Guess we all take things different ways. I think it's awesome that Dirty wiped out the SD [sign in to see URL] them. Play with some confidence and swagger, especially against your division rivals.
