Awesome Giants <Giants@sf.giants>: May 26 05:20AM

OK, turns out Arroyo did go 0 for Chicago, hitless in the 4-game
series.
 
He's 0 for his last 18. His BA is now .191.
 
Boch dropped him down to bat 8th! That surprised even me. He batted
2nd just 2 days ago. Even Samardzija (1 for 2) outhit him today.
 
Don't worry. No doubt he'll do better against Atlanta. You can count
on it!

At least, not both... :-(

True, but maybe it would be better if he actually bats worse :-)
 
Worse than 0/18 is -at minimum- 0/19, and if our 8th hitter bats 19
times in a 3-game series, there should be at least a lot of fun :-) (or
a 22-inning game:-)

> Let us see what Leake does for the rest of the season. He was ours for the taking.
 
no I mean Mike Leake who leads the N.L in ERA and just shut down the dodgers, and the Mike Leake that Bochy always liked. How much better is Samardzija then he is? and at what cost differential? Let me think Mr. Genius. Give us your most high and mighty analysis. Yup that is the Leake, the one that is pitching better than anyone on the giants thus far this season. That Mike Leake.

So 2 months of good pitching trumps a year and a half of bad
pitching? Dumb & Dumber strikes again. <sigh>
 
 
> How much better is Samardzija then he is?
 
 
2016:
Samardzija 12-11, 3.81 ERA
Mike Leake 9-12 4.69 ERA
 
Is that clear enough for you, Mr. Tiny Brain? LOL. If you're too
stupid to understand these stats, then you might as well jump off
the bridge. You sound just like Trump, babbling off nonsense after
nonsense.

OK, let me dumb it down for the insanely stupid wayne. :-)
 
Leake in 2015 with SF: 2-5, 4.07 ERA
 
If Leake were any good 2 years ago with the Giants, the Giants
would've no doubt re-signed him. But he sucked, so the Giants let
him go. Which part of that does your inadequate little brain have
problem understanding? Are you dumber than a 5th grader? :-D
 
Last year he was 9-12 for the Cards, probably would've been even
worse if he pitched for the Giants, with horrible run support.
Bumgarner was losing 1-0 games. The Giants barely made the playoff
on the nose last year with Samardzija's 12 wins, so they would've
missed the playoff with Leake's 9 wins.

Again, Leake 2016: 9-12, 4.67 ERA. 2015 with SF: 2-5, 4.07 ERA.
But wayne the dumbest baseball fan on earth is just too stupid to
get it. <sigh>

Dead last in the N.L. in runs. When I turned on the game the giants had 4 hits and the Cubs 2, that certainly changed. If it were not for Crawford's seeing eye hit in the 9th, we would have ended up having only 4 hits. When I watch the big stud hitters on other teams, they just seem to invoke more fear than Posey. Maybe the other teams don't see it that way, but how many more RBI ops did he blow these last two games. Hopefully Arroyo will get out of his slump and start hitting again. This team really needs a 10 game winning streak, and fast. Giving up those 2 runs on that wild pitch/passed ball was not helpful but I suppose it ended up not making a difference. If the other team had a similar passed ball/wild pitch we would still be wondering if the giants runner would have advanced and scored from third, never mind two runs. We did have one of those plays go our way a few starts ago on a Matt Moore AB, when an infield play ended up clearing the bases, but for the most part giants have been station to station on offense, but on defense the extra base is often taken.

Is that some kind of alibi for Samardzija screwing up and giving up 3
home runs? His 1-6 record isn't all the fault of poor hitting.

Really? LOL.

Another surprisingly decent game from the HR Derby twin Samardzija.
Sure, he gave up 3 HRs, but 7 innings 3 ER 8 K should be good enough
for a win. Too bad he got cained with only 1 run of support.
 
Shockingly he pitched as well as anyone in the last 5 starts:
 
 
Cain 7 ER
Blach 3 ER (OK Blach was better, despite the 3ER)
Cueto 4 ER
Moore 4 R, 3 ER
Samardzija 3 ER
 
And his previous start was of course the amazing 8IP 0ER game in which
Arroyo was the hero in extra innings.
 
If both he and Cain are somehow getting their acts together, the Giants
have a chance. If both of them suck, then...
