I tried…. I tried REALLY hard to save the Zito stache phenomenon until I could do a “This Week In Giants Facial Hair” post…. But it’s not possible, it was on full display tonight. This shapely “Nose Mullet” is THE nicest I have seen on a pitching mound since Clay Zavada. Can you attribute Zito’s future dominance to his new “Tom Selleck”? That would be a resounding YES! Is it a major reason why the Giants won 4 to 1 tonight? YES!
Zito I am your eternal fan if you keep the stache! I take back all the bad things I said about you. I will forget the fact that your an emotional wreck with a philosophical attachment to surfboards and other self-absorbed-beach culture douchiness.
Keep the “Plainview” Barry, if you know what is good for you.
The Kafka Tamura Award (Hero) goes to:
Pablo Sandoval for the 38 lbs lighter defensive show he put on in the 4th inning. Pablo also got the first RBI of the night.
The Johnnie Walker Award (Villain) goes to:
Gio Gonzalez, cause you gotta recognize greatness! This guy is a beast straight up! I would not be surprised if he wins a Cy Young at some point soon.
The Omar Vizquel award goes to:
Pat Burrell, There isn’t many times where I can give the award to him. So I gotta do it when I can. Nice Catch Burrell, nice catch.
The Velez Award goes to:
Andy LaRoche was having a bad day all around. He had a wide throw to first base on a double play chance, and also this bungled ball.
OMG these guys are insane homers! I am so happy to have our broadcasters, every time something doesn’t go their way its “NOOOOO” from the fucking peanut gallery.
Hey look… smiles!
Exhibition game smiles!
Game face bitches!
Zito was about 11 inches away from giving up his 1 run lead early.
Holy crap, DeRosa has a HUGE backside! Just sayin…… just sayin…
DeRosa’s big ass is slowing him down on this foul pop-up.
As much as I hate Panda hats, imagine if this was your only hat choice. Actually imagine if that was your job, making like 2,000 ballon hats.
Don’t forget the little guy’s contribution an RBI double in the 7th. Fontenot is another player that is better than Rowand
A missed sign gets Andy Laroche into a “Fun”-down in the 5th.
I swear if Schierholtz loses his job and Rowand keeps his I will be pretty irrate. Two batters after Rowand waved frantically at a high pitch Nate blasts this one deep into center field.
Tomorrow I will post my season “Preview”.
