Couple of good shots before his teammates buried him. That curve was
going behind Harper and Harper backed his sorry ass right into it. The
****y can't throw a helmet and he barely laided a hand on Strickland.
Abouot the only interesting thing the Giants did all day.

>this is Harper's 9th or 10th time he has been ejected.
 
So an assclown like Strickland goes ahead and hits him when the Giants
least need that kind of thing. Immaturity or motivating the team?

LOL. 98mph curve? Must have been some curve! ;-)
 
BTW, Strickland got a 6-game suspension while Harper got 4, which on
the surface looked like Strickland got the heavier penalty, but
considering he's a reliever, he might only pitch 3 times in a 6-game
span anyway, and he usually pitches no more than 1 inning per game,
while Harper's usually playing all 9 innings. It's a landslide in
Strickland's favor if you count the penalty by innings: 36-3. :-)
 
And if you think that the chances of Harper signing with the Giants are
slim before, it's pretty much down to zero now. :-)

What kind of uneducated person would put a long url in the subject
line? LOL. So stupid.

Because we keep seeing this stuff over and over:
 
Bottom of 1st:
 
Calixte singled to center
 
Nunez grounded out, Calixte to second
 
Belt struck out
 
Posey walked
 
Ruggiano struck out
 
Inning over
 
Pretty hard to get any RBI like that. But that is something way above
wayne's brain power to understand. :-D
 
But that's wayne, the only Posey-hater Giants fan on the planet. :-D

Is there an Arroyo effect?
 
Giants' last 8 games:
 
Tue 5/23 Arroyo started, Giants lost (+bowling night)
Wed 5/24 Arroyo started, Giants lost
Thu 5/25 Arroyo started, Giants lost
Fri 5/26 Arroyo started, Giants lost
Sat 5/27 Arroyo not in lineup, Giants won
Sun 5/28 Arroyo not in lineup, Giants won
Mon 5/29 Arroyo started, Giants lost
Tue 5/30 Arroyo started, Giants lost (+bowling night)
 
Of course it can't be Arroyo's fault for the 6 losses in 8 games.
Unlike a pitcher, one position player usually can't lose a game by
himself; it's a team effort. If anything, wayne's bowling jinx is
probably a bigger fault. Everyone knows wayne is the resident bad luck
charm.
 
Then again, there might be some small effects:
 
Arroyo last 7 games: .077 BA, .154 SLG, .297 OPS
Nunez last 7 games: .400 BA, .400 SLG, .838 OPS
 
And Arroyo did go 0 for the week last week.

It's almost automatic these days.

One lousy inning and Morris puts the game out of reach with 3 runs.
With a light hitting team like the Giants, that's three runs too many.
Samardzija didn't help the situation with his 3 runs and 100 pitches
thru 4 innings.

A lot of seeing eye ground balls in that inning.

now ups his pace to 36 RBI for the season.

Amazing what happens when someone actually gets on base ahead of
Buster.
John Walsh <jwalsh589@gmail.com>: May 30 04:42PM -1000

Three hits and two earned runs in the first. Samardzija expended 30
pitches in the first. He won't be in for long if he keeps this up.
 
Calixte leads off for the Giants, his first ML hit. Good start for the
kid. Hope that's motivation for the rest of the non-hitting clowns on
this team. Nunez grounds out, Calixte to second.
 
Belt does his usual swing at the first two pitches for strikes, the
first almost in the dirt. And ... he watches the callled third strike.
Way to earn your money, clown.
 
Giants 0 Nationals 2 (looks familiar,don't it!)

A single, a throwing error by Buster and two more singles gets the
Nationals another run. When Samardzija misses, he's really far out of
the zone. Each of the singles was fatso in the zone. Why not four
straight singles! Bases loaded and Samardziaj is already well past 50
pitches in the 2nd inning.
 
Gonzalez 19 pitches, Samardzija 62 pitches thru two innings.
 
Giants 0 Nationals 3

Miracle of all miracles, Calixte comes thru again with a double,
driving in Hill and Hernandez. Nunez does nothing.
 
Giants 2 Nationals 3

After Morris's debacle, Buster finally gets something to hit and
drives in Nunez with the Giants' third run. Boch subs with Denard
"BooBoo" Span.
 
Giants 3 Nationals 6

This has to be the third or fourth time this week that an ump took the bat or the rally away from the giants on a terrible ball and strike call. I think at this point we need electronic calling of balls and strikes.
ariess@bellsouth.net: May 30 09:22PM -0700

so far this year giants shut out 6 times, giants have shut out their opposition, zero time.
ariess@bellsouth.net: May 30 09:18PM -0700

Seems as if they updated the rest of the league. Wonder what is going on there.
