Very important question here, think hard burgher, was Milledge's drop in your dream the product of him playing in some half-assed LF shift? :)

Sorry, no. It was a line drive right at him, one of those tweeners that comes at you fast and you don't know whether to address it overhand or underhand. Probably he lost focus for a moment while thinking about his 8 children from 10 different mothers....

Always nice to wake up to a win. A lot to like about the game, specifically LaRoche homering, Cutch on the basepaths, and Garrett Jones having a huge day. Also a lot to dislike...such as Lastings Milledge going 0-fer, and only seeing 11 pitches in four PAs. The lineup has way too many holes in it for the 3-spot to be pulling that kind of crap.


I'd like to see more patience as well.
On a positive note, I loved Milledge's hustle getting to 3rd base on Jones' seeing-eye single in the 8th inning. Too bad that Doumit adopted a poor plate approach with a 2-1 count and went after a pitch which was not exactly in his wheelhouse and ended up grounding into a DP. That run could've been huge but for the 9th inning rally.

When I look at SF, I am kind of hoping to see them win their division and get to the NLCS.

It would be fun just to watch them make sabremetricians spin like tops.

The whole SF approach to the game.

Hackers,wackers, and tubby tots taking nary a walk while swinging Randall-Simon like at any sausage they see.

That's a real nice line there ZM! Big fan of alliteration. Keep up the good work.

Giants' hitting lineup today:

1. Tinky Winky - CF
2. La La - SS
3. Kung Fu Panda - 3B
4. Ipsy Dipsy - 1B
5. Fat Molina - C
6. Fat Bastard - LF
7. Po - RF
8. Fat Uribe - 2B

No truth to the rumor that Rick Reuschel is scheduled to pitch.

Ah, yes...that would do it. And if the Giants made the playoffs with the A's being left out, I'm sure Billy Beane would have smoke coming out of his ears.

Four down, 78 to go!

I've been seeing a lot of this on the board lately. I've gotta say that I hate this perspective. 82 wins means nothing to me.


Me either, but I have to keep my optimism high.

Plus, how awesome would it be if this rag-tag group actually did pull off a .500 or better season?!

I'm just pulling for this bunch all around.

ZM

This approach does not strike me as appealing to any fan of the game, let alone sabremetricians.

Sorry I did not see this earlier. Laughed at it with gusto. Good one, No. 9.
