Grilli now trying out for batting practice pitcher, or all star game home run derby pitcher.

I think he's trying out for the Giants bullpen.

Ends up grounding into an easy double play. I keep waiting for a big RBI day from him, but it is not happening. Sandoval, back just two days, and less than half the AB's than Posey already has 12 RBI. Posey has had just slightly less than league average runners on base and in scoring position, but has come through in these situations at a tragically low rate. Maybe he will get 20 RBI in one week soon, to help get him back on track, but I am thinking despite his slow speed, he might be better off. batting leadoff and let other guys go for the RBI's.

again ninth inning, this time no outs, man on second, 3-0 count, the next pitch was a high inside ball, called a strike, Eventually Posey hit a weak fly to left. Another RBI opportunity nullified. Then Crawford got the hit and RBI. should have been two on no outs. Panik flies out deep center. Then Calixte gets a hit. Hill Pinch hitting for the rookie. Two on, Two out, down 5-2. The fish today by the way, no hit the dbacks. AFter the giants went down 5-1, all of the sudden the philly pitching staff got a much bigger zone.

If the UMP gave Posey the walk it would already be 5-4 with only one out. Instead it is 5-3 with two outs and two men on. Giants wait for the ninth and down 4 runs to awaken. Will they score enough? Tune in.
