High light of the game (and possibly the week)
To say that the only Giants game that I will be able to see at AT&T this year was a downer is a huge understatement. Here are the facts.
1. We lost
2. It was damn cold (I forgot how cold SF gets… yes I’m an idiot).
3. I had standing room only tickets
4. EVERYONE was there early. Gone are the days where I would show up 2 hours early and was almost guaranteed to be able to catch a BP ball. Oh well, for better or worse… right?
5. I had just had my car impounded for parking on Mission street during rush hour (FUCKSHITDAMNFUCKING $475 later I got my car back!!!!)
The best seat in the house.
If you buy standing room only.
So ya, I enjoyed coming home, I enjoyed being at AT&T again. But I am much more looking forward to the Giants Vs Mets game at CITI Field where I have seats 17 rows behind the Giants dugout. And tickets are only $30 because the Mets are TERRIBLE.
But enough about me. Let’s talk about what the Giants are up to.
I’m just going to go through a couple of players and spout what I have been thinking about.
Can I get an amen? If given playing time I feel like Fontenot represents more runs saved on defense and more runs created on offense than Tejada. I know I am echoing someone but I get nervous every time the ball is hit to SS.
I want this guy in the lineup every day. Sure he makes a lot of outs, but he always takes at least 4 pitches. One of the shining examples of how to take an at bat.
From now on I will probably not mention how garbage Rowand was. For Rowand we are going to have to put blinders on. I don’t remember what happened to Rowand last year… do you? All I know is there is some dude who looks like he sits on a toilet when he swings and he is saving our ass, game in and game out.
…..Has more World Series Rings than Major league hits, and he totally deserves it.
4. Either Cain… or Wilson… not sure which one yet.
The Dog House.
1. Tejada (told you so)
2. Huff, but it’s not entirely his fault, he is hitting it into the defense a lot of the time.
3. Ross,….. is he playing for his job now? maybe.
4. The rotation, I know… I love them too, but they need to start getting deep into games or our bullpen will be all used up at the end of the season. My recommendation is to get Kroon, and Edelfson up here to help out for a while, drop Burriss and carry an extra reliever to keep the pressure off.
I see this sign every time I go to the park…. and I wonder… how the hell is a ball (or a freaking bat!) going to get back to the last row of the last section before the arcade, about 20 rows under the overhang and still be “flying”?
