Juan Uribe has signed a 3-year $21 million deal with the Dodgers.
Man post-post season is ridiculously boring, isn’t it? Even Jane Heller has been reduced to move reviewing. There could be news if someone would actually do something, but so far there’s just unanswered questions, like…
As I’ve complained about numerous times already, just as the Giants win the World Series, I had to leave town. Went to Seattle for work, a town that wasn’t necessarily as excited about the Giants winning as the Bay Area, though I did get a few “go Giants!” while walking Seattle’s streets in my Giants sweatshirt. I should have invested in a He-Cam so that I could interview some of them, as I was curious whether or not these pro-Giants people were actual fans stranded in Washington or just happy the Giants won over the Rangers (or maybe just knew the Giants won because they read the paper and like to shout out “woo hoo!” when the opportunity presents itself). But I didn’t interview any of them, so now we’ll never know who they were.
The Giants had a parade. I heard 1.5 million people showed up.
Aubrey Huff revealed the rally thong.
Brian Wilson and The Machine were on the Tonight Show. Jay Leno still sucks. (Make sure you watch both parts!)
President Obama called to congratulate the Giants for their most excellent victory. I love (no really) how he always has to make sure people know he’s a White Sox fan.
Yesterday’s Game 4 was the opposite of Game 3, lackluster pitching, stellar offense and horribly torturous.
I talk Giants with a co-worker fairly regularly, especially lately of course. Passing my desk on his way out the door yesterday, we speculated on how this Braves series is going to go, and I made a prediction that it’s going to go all five games and every game is going to be a 1-0 victory.
What’s with me and the Star Wars references this week? I’ll balance it out with some Star Trek in a minute. Anywho.
Pablo? Buster? Aubrey? Anybody? Talk about a pitching war. No denying Chad Billingsley was pretty amazing, throwing his second career shutout and third complete game. But y’know, even though we lost, Zito had a steller performance as well, making it to the eighth inning and allowing only six hits and two runs, the second run chalked up to Romo allowing one hit in the 0.2 innings he pitched. Yeesh.
This is the second time in a row we’ve lost the last game of the series. Both times I’ve felt bummed afterward, which is kind of a negative considering we still won the series. In fact we’ve won the last FOUR series, and are still ranked #2 in the division, with only FOUR games behind the Padres. Today’s blog post is sponsored by the number…
Off to face Arizona in a FOUR game series. The D-Backs are trailing the division, 19 games behind the Padres and 15 games behind us. Please please PLEASE let us slaughter them!
You don’t want to play our pitcher in your fancy special game, then we’ll play our pitcher instead and he’ll throw his first complete game this season and earn his 10th win this season and throw his fourth career shut out and his first career win against the Mets. Neener!
Sorry I got all “bat” crazy the last couple posts, Mr. Lincecum. Sorry I was all Buster around the Posey. I got excited about the new and shiny, I admit it. But you are still the best thing to watch on this team, especially when you’re on fire. You are still the face of this franchise for me, hands down. I love you. Call me.
Speaking of my new and shiny love for hitting, where was it? Another 2-0 game. Pablo got a double, and everyone got stoked, especially Pablo. I’m happy for him, but I don’t necessarily think it means anything, despite what Bay Area media would have me believe. Everyone’s bound to his once in a while, right? It was a nice hit for sure, and very timely. I certainly hope it’s a turning point for him, and he keeps it up, because Pandamonium is much cuter when he’s batting .300+.
Nine innings for Lincecum though! A complete game! That never happens for any of our starters. Bochy is a yanker. But not last night! Was it because he could tell Lincecum was hot? Or was it that 6th inning foul ball that hit him in the head?
Crawled up half a game and the second half of the season is looking good!
