Earnest ragging worked on Arroyo too. I'm on fire! ;-)
 
He was 0 for the Mets series before this game, and 3 for his last 21
before this game. Way to break out of a slump!
 
Another decent game for Cain after the nightmare at Cincy. There's
hope for him after all. But hopefully he can go more than 5 innings.
Leaving 4 innings to this bullpen is asking for trouble.

You know Joe Panik is nothing but a singles and double hitter. He has turned into another Freddie Sanchez.

You know if you do it on purpose it's not *earnest*, right? :-)
 
Posey 3rd HR in 3 days! If it wasn't the greatest earnest ragging
before, it is now! Hahaha.

Sounds like some all time great cleanup numbers, and he is still hitting above 360.

He doesn't have to hit home runs, but he does have to have people on
base to drive in. On the Giants, that's rarified territory for a team
that's rated the worst in baseball.
 
Gorkys "Mendoza" Hernandez
Conor "Mendoza" Gillaspie
 
It was refreshing to see Ruggiano out there.

Case in point: 9th inning, 2 men on, Posey AB. About time he gets a
chance to get some RBIs, right? Wrong. The Mets walked him, would
rather take their chances on Arroyo. Smart move, but backfired.
 
Low IQ wayne has done it again. LOL.

Maybe we can borrow one from Oakland.

It's like some kind of genetic defect that they inherit when the
become relievers for the Giants. I watdhed the pitch locater and Law
wondering if he was going to cough up the lead. He3 didn't deserve the
save.

That's the one he meant. Didn't you know wayne is a casilla fanboy?

Actually it may have been the '89 49ers or one of Seifert's teams which
got upset in the NFC Championship game.
 
Then the Giants beat the Buffalo Bills when their kicker missed a FG.

Oh well, at least the Warriors are doing well, for now.
 
49ers are going to be horrible for another couple of years but if they
can get a couple of good drafts going, they should improve because
parity won't hold down teams forever, unless they're really horribly
managed.

Oh, *that* game. Seifert's team won the SB in '89, so you're
talking about the 1990 NFC Championship game. I'm still pissed
about that game, 'cause we would've 3-peated if we didn't give that
game away. The 49ers were leading the whole way, the Giants
couldn't even move the ball on us. Somewhere in the 2nd half the
Giants had to punt on 4th down. I was like, "Watch out for the fake
punt!" Of course they did and got a long gain for the 1st down and
went on to score. Even I saw that play coming! Walsh would've seen
that coming from a mile away, but unfortunately Seifert didn't. And
late in the 4th quarter all Roger Craig had to do was protect the
ball, but he fumbled and cost us the game. I think he had 2 fumbles
in the 4th quarter, but will have to double check. The 49ers
*never* should've lost that game.
 
Actually there were some similarities to how Harbaugh's team lost to
the, guess who, the Giants in 2010? The 49ers were in control, the
Giants couldn't move the ball on us. But our dumbass punt returner
tried to be the hero and fumbled *2* punts and gave the game away.

That was the Bills' 1st of their 4 straight SB losses. The 49ers
would've beaten them in their sleep, even without Montana.
 
> Oh well, at least the Warriors are doing well, for now.
 
The Warriors!!! Never in a million years would I expect them to be
the dominant team in the NBA. Potentially they can win several more
in a row. Should've won last year if not for the Draymond
suspension (the shithead lebron baited Draymond into a technical by
walking over him while he was on the ground) and Bogut's injury
(dirty and dangerous slide by JR Smith IMO). That play pretty much
ended Bogut's career.

Well, the guy brought the Falcons to the SB, and really should've
won the SB but he tried to be macho and gave the game away. I'm
expecting him to do well here.
John Walsh <jwalsh589@gmail.com>: May 10 03:01PM -1000

They won despite Ruggiiano and Law trying to give the game back to the
Mets, but there were good moments in this game.
 
11 hits, Buster's 3rd straight home run, Buster coming all the way
around to score from 1st after taking a foul off his big toe. Arroyo's
ringing double empty the bases.
 
Were it nto for Law and his inability to hit the strike zone, this
wouldn't have been a close game.
 
Giants 6 Mets 5
 
If anyone deserves a break, it's Buster.
