But his fielding flub may have cost us the game. OK, he was just on the DL after crashing into the fence and making a catch so one can see why he might be careful. but probably more than 80% of starting center fielders would have caught that ball which became a triple. When was the last time the giants hit a triple? When was the last time they went for more than station to station on base hits? Giants continually find ways to lose. 11 hits, 2 home runs, and the team only scores 2 runs? Something has gone amiss.

The team has gone amiss. It's amazing how they find ways to lose, but
the bullpen, just continues to use the same old ways of losing.

Span chose a great time to hit his first home run of the year. The
Giants take the lead 2-1 over the Reds. Belt opened the Giants scoring
with his 5th HR off Arroyo.
 
With Buster out, the Giants are continuing to go long ball, something
of a resurrection of sorts. Blach pitching lights out today.

3 singles in the innings and only 1 out. It might be time to take
Blach out, not send Righetti out for a talk. Hopefully, the Giants
haven't the single digit hitting plateau again.
 
86 pitches by the 6th inning is dangerous territory. Double play ball
bails out Blach. Time for the .... bullpen.

Span gets his 3rd hit, runners on 1st and 2nd with 2 out. Maybe Belt
can so something with runners on base.Well, 2 balls and he swings next
3 pitches and leaves them on base.

A triple for the first batter, courtesy of Span's leaky glove.
Groundout, oh shit! a nice fat pitch for a double and there goes teh
game. Hilarity begins as the coach visits the mound for a
there-there. I guess giving up one run isn't quite enough so they
leave him in the game. Okay ... It's alreaday too late and Hunter
Strickland toss some gas on the first, taking the loss as the Giants
get 11 hits and squander them for 2 runs.

they keep putting in the wrong pitchers. Also giants not doing well in adding runs and not good at small ball these days. 11 hits. two homers, and only score 2 runs. Bochy, help us out here.

It's like contemplating jumping out of an airplane.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! I'm sure Boch will find something
good to say about him. :(

OT from baseball but ...
 
The 49ers were leading late in the 4th quarter when Montana was
knocked out of that game (1990 NFCCG vs. Giants).
 
> parity won't hold down teams forever, unless they're
> really horribly managed.
 
You mean like the 49ers under the Yorks? They were handed one
of the premier successful franchises in pro sports on a silver platter
and turned it into a laughingstock. They are the worst sports team owners
since Harry Frazee, who sold Babe Ruth from the Red Sox to the Yankees.
 
People think the owner is just a fat old guy who writes the checks and
likes to hang around with jocks but they make a huge difference. 49ers
before and after Eddie. Or the Warriors. They were an ongoing disaster
under Chris Cohan, nothing ever went right. As soon as he sold them to
people who knew WTF they were doing they started moving up and are
now close to where the 49ers were in the 80s.

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.

>You know Joe Panik is nothing but a singles and double hitter. He has turned into another Freddie Sanchez.
 
Singles or doubles, much appreciated for a team that had turned
hitting into a disappearing act. Buster sparked them.
