I don’t like Jackie Robinson day. I always turn the game on and think that the Giants have changed their jerseys. It always takes me about an inning to realize that everyone is wearing the same number. So here is Matt Cain, winning his first game as #42.
I am feeling something with Cain this year, as if he is going to do something great. I have felt this for about three years now. But the better he gets….. the more you think it. If I thought he was on track to do something special last year (which he did) then this year I have to assume the same.
Year of the Cain……..? I guess we’ll see.
The Omar Vizquel Defensive Wizardry Award Goes to:
Gotta give props where they are deserved. Kelly Johnson made a pretty nice play on this “almost” bloop single.
The Velez Award for Ball Bobbling Goes to:
Since this was an error free game I am going to put my favorite screenshot from last season up.
ooooh lord I love this photo!!!! hahahahahahahahaha
The W. Mark Felt Award (hero) goes to:
Matt Cain, the guy is a beast. What more can I say about this guy?
The Richard Nixon Award (villain) goes to:
Again…… I can’t think of any…… This game was really really well played and kinda boring. I was going to say Jose Lopez for making Wilson come into the game, but… nah, he’s too good. No villain today…. So I will go with another classic Giants Villain Photo for those who know……
Mr. Poetry in motion…. The perfect Villain.
Pablo continues his beastly run. If he knew where the strike zone was he could hit .400 some year.
I should have put the picture of Rowand’s strike out hat trick right here, but this picture has Rowand’s future replacement in it….. can you guess who it is?
Tejada is swinging a nice club right now. 3 hits.
Call me a second guesser, but I don’t see why Ford or Schierholtz was not in right field at this point. This is the 5th or 6th inning. It was 5-0, Just felt like we had wrapped it up by then.
Pretty lucky brake here, after a Pablo gone fishing strike-out Huff was hung out at least 8 feet.
Pablo is tearing it up over at the hot corner, I feel like I put a picture of his defensive plays in almost all my posts so far. (although he didn’t get the runner)
“Guuuuuyyyss…… Hey guuuuuuyyys…… I’m over here wait for meeeeee” says temporarily lost Aaron Rowand
I know that Fontenot didn’t really contribute in this game, but I just wanted to point out again that I am rooting for him and that the day that I didn’t do a game wrap he totally killed the ball and won the game for us. Love this guy!
I wonder if Darren Ford got his ring today? I really want to see this guy up in the bigs this year.
I like how all the Arizona fans have given this guy a 4 seat radius…. I’ve seen some pretty terrible beards this year, this one is pretty epic.
Wilson kisses the imaginary ring…… just a note. Anyone notice that Wilson now has matching orange (home) and grey (away) cleats? pretty legit.
