If he misses the DP ball, and screws up the play, like in the playoffs, the giants probably lose again. Nice to hold off the surging cubs. Winning despite playing with a replacement outfield.

No one said he was. I was just making a comparision dealing with games played
between the both. I couldn't find stats for Mays' 1951 season that showed his
first 25 games so I used '52 being he went into the service that year. IMO, by
August, the Giants will have the best infield in the entire league with him at
3rd. I feel he'll be a .275BA minimum hitter with at least 15 dingers. More to
come next year.

Posey started his career 2 for 17 at age 22. He turned out ok.

Wow that's very optimistic. For that to happen, he better hit .375
instead of .275, 'cause that's what Turner is hitting for LA. LA got
Turner, Seager, Taylor (.333), and Gonzalez. Gonzalez is actually the
weak link in that group right now.

Well, 4 games tell you nothing. He was a September callup in 2009 and
only started 4 games (not 4 consecutive games), only got some playing
time here and there. I'd consider 2010 his real true beginning.
 
And as Panik's shown, even 2 months doesn't tell you much.
 
On the flip side, Parker hit 3 HR in 1 game as a September callup in
2015, hit 6 HR with great stats: .347/.407/.755/1.163 in 21 September
games. Yet he didn't pan out.
 
Duffy had a great rookie season, yet he was a total flop in his 2nd
season.
 
So as I've said, they need at least a couple of months to prove
themselves.
 
But Arroyo went 0 for 5 today batting 2nd. At least 2 of the ABs he
had runner(s) in scoring position. He left 4 men on base. His BA is
down to .212. I think he should be batting 7th until he improves.
That's what Mays did.

Where did you find that? I have Warren Spahn. Spahn even joked about
it:
 
Mays began his major league career with no hits in his first 12 at
bats. On his 13th at-bat, he hit a home run over the left field roof of
the Polo Grounds off future Hall of Famer Warren Spahn. Spahn later
joked, "I'll never forgive myself. We might have gotten rid of Willie
forever if I'd only struck him out."
 
LOL.

Joe Panik gets the Giants off to a good start with a HR to center
field, then comes back around and doubles in Gorkys Hernandez on his
next AB.
 
With the way Blach is pitching one run would have been enough. Belt
singles to left (amazing), driving in Panik. Ruggiano doubles in
Nunez. Belt and Ruggiano add homers to the scoring binge.

Blach may have reached his limit in the 8th as he gives up a single to
Heyward and a home run to Baez and now a triple to Happ. Enough
talking to the coach, bullpen time. In comes Law.

Law comes in, gives up 1 of Blach's runs, 1 of his own and is relieved
by Okert who does nothing, with Strickland getting the final 2 outs.
Okert's 5.68 ERA is glaring in the bullpen.
 
Hopefully Melancon cmoes in for a clean 9th inning.
 
Giants 6 Cubs 4

Except for his start in Cincy Blach has been excellent this year.

When Madbum returns, Blach can take Cain's spot. He did come
completely unglued in the 8th though. Maybe that's conditioning and
experience.

Blach's been incredible! Too bad the 8th inning ruined his excellent
outing.
 
Panik had me worried for a while, going from .300 to .250 in the blink
of an eye. Maybe he's bouncing back now.
 
What was Law doing? Doing a Casilla impersaonation? That brought back
memories of the NLDS Game 4. If they had blown that lead, man, it'd be
tough to take. The Cubs would be laughing at us. It was like Law was
telling us, "See, Boch pulling me in that Game 4 was the right
decision."
 
About time Blach got some run support! Almost 4 games worth of support
from his norm!
 
Let's sweep the Cubs!

Sure, we'll take them but notice what the Cubs did in the 8th? 2 2-run
HRs...BOOM...in the blink of an eye, 4 runs. Being able to do that
increases your chances of winning games.
 
If the Giants had lost this game those 4 runs in the 8th via the pair of
2 run HRs would have made it even more humiliating. In other words, the
Giants would have gotten screwed by the type of hit they can't seem to get.

Earl Weaver used to say, "Baseball is pitching,
defense, and three-run homers."

Maybe it works like those 12 step programs in AA meetings. At first
they're not hitting any HRs, and we complained, so now they're hitting
HRs, but all solo ones. Next step would be 2-run HRs. ;-)
 
Haha, I was staring at the subject line and couldn't even come up with
a guess of what it meant! :-)
John Walsh <jwalsh589@gmail.com>: May 22 05:42PM -1000

They've pulled themselves out of last place and put some distance on
the cellar dwelling Padres. They've crept a bit closer to the Dodgers
and the Dbags. :)
