They suck, get over the endless promises and fake streaks. It's turned
into headline nightmare. "Early Outburst vs. Moore too much" Want to
bet the "Giants look to spoil Marlins starter's debut" comes even
close to a win?
 
The odds are better than they'll make him look great.

full count to belt two outs giants down 6-1, trying to make a comeback, again comeback taken away on a bad call. Clearly ball 4 to Belt called strike 3. game over. How many times have our pitchers toss one right over for strike 3, then called a ball, then the other team comes back and gets a hit. Happened in the Colorado series. Would have been bases loaded. Hate when a game ends on such a putrid call. Not reviewable. This ump can go the way of Angel Hernandez. By the way, Phil Cuzzi is in this umping crew.

In last year's NLCS, Angel stuck it to the Dodgers. So he's not all
bad. Most of the calls were accurate and it's hard to blame the umpire
for call it a strike to get the dog of a game off the field.

Jones goes on the DL and Stratton goes back to Sacmo. Gillaspie is a
waste of time. He can't stay healthy, his back problem continues to
dog him and he's hitting an anemic .137.
 
Gomez sounds interesting, but another infielder who platoons and rides
the bench? He's hitting .305 with 19 doubles, 2 triples, 8 homers
and 38 runs batted in. With statistics like that, platooning sounds
like another waste.

DL one thirdbaseman and call up two.

Gomez was hitting over 320 for most of the season. he had slumped recently to the low 300's and in the last few games he raised back up to 308.

What the hell good is Gillaspie going to do with a .137 average and
having missed 45 out of 50 games? Gomez looks great, but I'm worried
about them screwing him up and then sending him back down.

First inning, a single to Gordon and a home run to the next batter
Giancarlo Stanton.
 
[1st one in the dirt, called strike and the third was right where
Stanton likes them]. He doesn't seemt to be fooling the batters, Ozuna
took him to 12 pitches before a fly to center. 2 more singles and his
pitch count is heading toward 30. Bingo! 3 straight singles load the
bases and out comes Righetti. Oh shit, 4 straight singles and Moore is
rolling out the welcome wagon. 36 pitches to get 3 outs.
 
 
 
Giants 0 Marlins 4

The Giants do nothing in their half. Gonna be a long night for the
Giants with that 6 game tease streak a distant memory. Moore donates
another run to the Miami cause.
 
Giants 0 Marlins 5

Moore finally serves up enough of the Denny's menu to force Bochy to
pull him. Runners on 1st and 3rd and Gearrin gets the double play to
end the 4th inning. The Giants have generated 3 hits so far. :(

With several of our starting pitchers, it almost looks as if the opposition knows what pitch is coming. But today, with the lack of movement on Moore's pitches it did not seem to matter. Something is clearly wrong with this guy.

The pitch Stanton got was down and towards the outside, so yes, it
couldn't have had much movement if he picked it up and launched it.
When he had movement, it was usually something that Posey had to go
dirt diving for.
 
You can tell when it's going to be a long day for a Giants pitcher.
High pitch counts early and that ever present spectre of the home run.
I'm not sure whether getting Bumgarner back is going to do any good
after seeing him get shelled like a Single A pitcher in San Jose.

It almost does not matter whom they play, or who the pitcher is, they come back from a road trip and look like a minor league team. Has to be a way to motivate these guys in these situations. This team seems to have interim, and frequent amotivational spells. Slater looked like he had an infield hit, and he comes up lame. Think this has happened to the giants several times this year. One of the most snake bitten teams that I can remember. Today on a poor hitting (for average) Padre team, their catcher, who is batting 220 now has 39 RBI, more than our catcher hitting 326 as I type.

Posey hitting 242 with runners in scoring position, going into his last AB tonight, assuming the giants do not come back.
