I'm talking about all the big name prospects who attract bidding wars.
 
But yeah it's more risky than signing free agents who got proven records
in the MLB.

We can only wish. He's probably going to go to the Yankees or Red Sox,
depending on which one of them has a disappointing year. Or maybe the
Dodgers.
 
These teams have huge TV contracts so they can pay $40 million a year or
more.

It's probably why more often than not they also tend to end up
getting the top international prospects. Or other teams have to
break the bank to outbid them.

8IP, 3H, 0ER, 11K. Yet still can't get a win.
 
What do you have to do as a starting pitcher to get a win on this team?
 
Bumgarner's recommendation: "Get on a dirt bike."

Posey finally gets a nice hit with a runner in scoring position. I think Belt could have easily scored. They held him. Do we want to win or not? Seemed like an easy score. Any other team would have scored, even if Bengie Molina was running.

Ah, it took wayne a while, but he is *finally* catching on. Like I
pointed out last time (last week?), someone was on 2B, Posey singled to
center, and runner moved to 3B. No RBI again.
 
Maybe by the time wayne is 90, he'll pick these things up faster. ;-)
 
Of course, Arroyo had the bases loaded and only one out. He easily
could've won the game without even getting a hit, but he went 0 for 5
with 3 Ks and 2 groundouts, couldn't even hit a ball out of the infield
all night. But of course, as wayne would tell you, it's all Posey's
fault. :-D

11th inning, Giants scored 3 runs. Posey came to bat. Bums walked him
on 4 pitches, taking their chances on the next batter *again*. Arroyo
grounded out *again*, making it 0 for 6, never hit a ball out of the
infield all night.
 
Arroyo also left 6 men on base.
 
But of course, that was all Posey's fault, right, wayne? LOL.

The Giants reach double figures in hits, score their 2nd run in the
top of the tenth and now it will be up to the bullpen to put this one
away. Not for the Dodger, for the Giants.
 
Belt hits and drives in Hundley with the 3rd run. 11 hits, imagine
that! Pence sacrifices Hernandez for the 4th run. Buster Baseball
comes up and he walks on 4 pitches. Arroyo grounds into a force and
now it's time for the bullpen.
 
Giants 4 Dodgers 1
 
Shame Samardzija didn't get a win, but it'll be a Giants win, bullpen
willing.

Bums have one hit, then to lead off the bottom of the sixth, Panik makes a 3 base error. Mr. Gold glove Panik. second ball he dropped this week. Also last inning, Arroyo struck out (called strike 3, on a pitch 6 inches off the plate). The giants will not score runs if there pitcher is throwing a nice game. If the giants decide to hit, their pitcher will give up a bunch of runs. This is what a last place club does.

What the hell are they giving Pence money to do? Set a runners left
on base record? 6 runners left on base so far.

dumb & dumber seem to think gold glovers never make errors. Well, we
don't call them dumb & dumber for no reason. They're proving their
stupidity everyday. :-D
John Walsh <jwalsh589@gmail.com>: May 03 04:48PM -1000

It's early for one of his patented home runs.
 
Not much from the hitters, but that's hardly a surprise. One hit, a
strikeout, a double play, same old sequence.
 
Giants 0 Bums 0
 
Any compliment about the team is likely to be rewarded with a slew of
runs and even less hitting from the Giants. One thing Samardzija still
does it throw too many pitches near the middle of the strike zone.

Runners on 1st and 3rd, 2 out. Pence working his magic, gets a ball,
swings at a pitch outside the zone, takes a called strike and swings
at a pitch a food outside to kill the rally and end the inning.

Yes, that was a "foot" out of the strike zone.
 
5th inning magic, of course. Panik doubles, Tomlinson lines out but
Panik takes 3rd. Samardzija can't do more than ground out for the 2nd
out and Panik stays at 3rd. It's all up to "gulp" Gorky's Hernandez
and his sub-Mendoza batting average.
 
He walks, so maybe Belt will do more than walk this time.Urias is
either afraid or he's totally lost control. Belt walks and the bases
are loaded for .... Pence. What will the caveman do now?
 
Called strike on the outside edge, swinging strike, he flies out to
Puig to kill another scoring opportunity.

Urias is a damn good pitcher, with a 0.84 ERA. Something unheard of in
San Francisco.

Samardzija finally gets a miniscule amount of run support as Posey
drives in a run on the sacrifice and the Giants tie the Bums after
Panik's Golden Glove error allows the Bums to score.

"Moore has a 3.05 ERA in three starts at home, but he has a 12.79 ERA
in three road starts – all against NL West rivals, in ballparks where
he figures to appear multiple times later this season. He has allowed
23 hits in 12 2/2 innings at Chase Field, Coors Field and Dodger
Stadium while walking eight and striking out 10."
