    Rockies closer is trying to Kenley their one-run lead in the 9th. Walked the first Gnat batter on 4 pitches.

    It's done. Two runs in, two runners still on, and not an out recorded yet. Jansen would be proud.

    Rox bullpen needs fresh kneepads after this money shot.

    Seriously... contract that shithole team, man.

    LoL. ... the Rox went down so fast in the bottom of the 9th, you'd swear they are planning to leave town for good as fast as possible.

    Every season seat holder in Denver should get a full refund. What a tire fire that team is.

    Walk the leadoff hitter, two seeing eye singles and Wade (who else?) single and that's it.

    Fuck the Rox.

    Well, things don't look too good for keeping pace with the Giants...

    Using gamecast and seeing 'Pujols grounded out to 3B" ... I fully expect to read "Pujols grounds out to center field" at some point. He's just that slow.

    So fucking frustrating that we can’t even lose 1 game like this because horse ass teams like the dbags and Rockies lay down against the giants.

    This whole bullpen game idea is a travesty. Didn't have a chance from the get go.

    But those mutherf*cking Rockies can kiss my ass.

    Chris Taylor can walk in free agency and I will be ok with it

    Whatever we blame it on...and there's soooo fucking much to, it boils down to the ugly fact that the Giants lose less than we do. Simple math.
    They had two bp games in a row against us, and our "probably will get the Cy Young" pitcher laid down and rolled over for them.
    Greene giving up a late HR.
    Taylor not in the vicinity of the ball making the last out.
    Things like that are the reason why at this late stage of the game.
    We crap out when we need it most...they do the opposite.
    They do what they need to to win.

    Win today and you take three of four on the road in St. Louis. Unfortunately you still lose ground.

    Give credit to White for giving them five innings after a disastrous first. Shane Greene is a hanging slider waiting to happen. Hope he's history when Gonsolin and Kershaw return.

    Some bum luck in the 9th. Both Muncy and Smith hit at 'em balls at the RF. Taylor's recent slump is reaching Bellinger levels. Looks hopeless at times.

    Yeah, we're good....but just not good enough it seems.
    And the breaks definitely are not going our way, but some of the bad breaks are the fault of the lineup at any given time.
    Justin finally snaps out of his power outage, belts two homers. What does Dave do? Sits him down the next day.
    For some unknown reason, one of the Robertsonian principles. Break out= sit down the next day.
    What happened to " going with the hot hand"? Going with the player who gives you the best chance to win ?
    So instead, you play Pujols against a very crafty RH pitcher...and what does he do? Exactly what he did do...ground outs. We heard all year long how he hits LH.
    I'm all for Albert and his Hollywood movie moment he had, sure...but you need Turner in the lineup.
    Especially since the Pollack factor is no more...if at all this season after that stupid, unnecessary steal attempt.
    And looming is another few situations that are very ugly...the Padres for one.
    But one of the most dangerous teams in bb, imo, are the Brewers. And who do we finish up with ? Milwaukee.
    I don't know where we'll be at 159 games in relationship to the Giants.
    I just know if we're real close, tied, or ahead, my faith in Dave for games 160, 161, and 162 is very troubling.
    I just think he'll make it even harder than it has to be.
    Therein lies my faith.
