GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> DODGERS at GIANTS 09/16




!@#$ YEAH…..1st place by themselves in September…..15 games left and anything could happen……but with the Padres fading, the biggest threat to Giants Postseason is the Rockies……and lost in the Giants take over of first place in the West is the fact they are now in a flat footed tie for the Wild Card Lead with the Braves……I don't want to jinx anything, but I got to say I like our chances…..and if we make it to the postseason, this team CAN do some damage…….

GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> DODGERS at GIANTS 09/16

GAMEBALL
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
HUFF
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The Dodgers early lead was quickly answered with a deep shot into triples alley that turned into a run, and then next time around in the order Huff crushed one through the fog and over the bricks to give the Giants a lead for good……Huff has been THE MVP of this club, and talk about Posey or Torres is just that, talk…..no Doubt this 2010 Giants team revolves around Huff's all around game and clubhouse presence……

TIP OF THE CAP : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
POSEY
Since his arrival, the Golden Child has been Huff's wingman…..Seems like when the Giants offense is going good, Posey is knocking Huff home anytime Huff doesn't bring himself home……and it was that way tonight with Posey's picking up Huff with 2 out in the 1st…..and then following Huff's 3 run shot with 1 of his own……and Man, Posey has LEGIT power, did I mention this before…..and love that Back to Back homer on the 5th pitch of the AB…..man, Posey worked that count so far it barely felt like back to back……

SANCHEZ, J
Close runnerup to the gameball…..Things could have gotten ugly quickly after Uribe's errant throw in the 1st…..but Sanchez went 0-2 on the next two hitters before striking them out and then got Loney 0-1 before a sharp ground out…..the Dodgers wouldn't msuter a threat until the Giants had a 5 run lead and perhaps Jonathan's concentration wavered a little……

RENT
The bunt ahead of Huff's bomb was a masterful sneak attack…..tack on 3 more hits for a 4 hit night in a romp, and lets hope Edgar gets himself a little hot streak going

SANCHEZ, F
Doubled to left in front of Huff's tater, walked with the bases juiced, and then doubled home a couple of his own to give the Giants a 10 spot…..

GUILLEN
With his lack of speed, shoddy defense, and garbage time numbers, I just haven't warmed up to the guy……but he hit the !@#$ out of that ball……he would make one hell of a bat off the bench in the postseason…..but having him play right field on a day in day out basis is like having a Pit Bull watch your children….


JOKER
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
DOGGIES
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
!@#$ Dodgers……yes they realigned the rotation to stack the deck against the Giants…..but now comes the Kicker…..they play 9 of their remaining 15 games versus the Rockies and Padres……and 6 of those are against the Rockies…….what are the odds that they even come up with a couple wins versus those teams……heck, we will probably field their B lineup just try to !@#$ us over……but you know what…..Giants have the lead, have head to head games with the Padres and Rockies and hold their destiny in their hands……

SMACK OF THE STICK : --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
JOURNEY
Yeah, we know……first the White Sox and then the Dodgers ….."I see her in a smoky room……" !@#$ you Journey. I will kick you sorry turncoat asses in that smoky room…….Nope, the Giants have my approval on this one, the song they are playing after the Foghorn subsides and the Water cannons have shot their wad…… Yeah, you don't hear a funky bassline like that from Neal Schon's boys and there is something about a funky bassline that says homerun trot…….good work Giants Inc……

URIBE?
Nah……!@#$ it, we can let that slide for the day……Juan has been a !@#$ clutch part moved all over the infield……15 more games my man, lets go get em

(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..)

Really surprised Sanchez didn't get the gameball. 12 k's in 7 IP and only 91 pitches but he also overcame a first inning error and getting hit by a pitch. That's a gamer right there!!

Sanchez could have had a patented meltdown in the first but hung tough!

I have to get one last emoticon in, before I start loving the Dodgers for the next 2 weeks emoticon

Anyways, fantastic game and Merkin, I think the Gameball at some point needs to go to Aubrey Huff's lucky red thong. He started wearing it and he predicted it had 20-10 in it. Well we are 11-4 since he started wearing the thing!

We are on top, and now we must take advantage of some bad bullpen pitching in MIL. If the Cards can take 2 of the next 3 from SD, then all we have to worry about is going into Coors Field at least 3 games up on the Rockies.

Also regarding the Wild Card, PHI-ATL still go head-to-head 6 times! Philly takes 5 of 6 and the Wild Card should be in the NL West.
