Well...Muncy and Thompson looked good...
Never took you for a Brony, BZoo ...
Moronta looks svelte in the blue uni.
He also looks like he wants the Giants to come back and score multiple runs.
I enjoy watching him pitch. It makes me think Freidman will call me up to play RF in case the team plane goes down or something.
The Price is wrong !
Wow. MORONTA-PRICE just turned this game into a goat fuck.
It's nice they won, but the Dodgers sure were lucky but that umpire sucked ass. Five or six pitches were well out of the zone and got called in the Dodgers favor.
mom was asking why he looked so ridiculous and that he's fat
told her he was always fat and silly but no question that's as goofy as it gets
maybe grow a stache goatee thing and dye it too?
wanted his fat loser ass gone for a while
doesn't appear to be anything redeemable pitching wise in all that flesh
No excuse for coming into the game in the 9th with a four-run lead and walking two batters. If you have that little control of your pitches, you're not major league worthy.
Considering how the game was called Slater was stupid to take the final pitch of the game. Way too close to take in that situation.
Old Yeller for the both of them, especially the porker who walked two mediocre hitters to set the entire mess in motion.
You say porker like it's a bad thing... I love pork... And I look a lot like that guy.
Incidentally... Is Terry Forster still alive? I remember when David Letterman called him a tub of goo on Late Night.
At least the Tub of Goo was effective for a time (one memorable pitch to Joe Morgan aside).
I agree. But what does it say about CY award recipient David Price, then ? If the ump didn't blow the third strike, keeping up his age old tradition ?
( It was close, but a ball), I think more damage would have been done. For sure.
Also, in spite of this great 18/20 run we're on, the BP is very precarious, imo.
Very...but I guess every BP walks a fine line, in reality.
At this moment, we are dependent on two cogs in it, Price and Kimbrel, although at one time supremely talented, have those days in the rear view mirror, let's face it.
I'm not blaming this on anyone, even not on Robots, it just is what it is right now, but before the post season wars begin, much tightening up is required.
I don't know what they do about closer...Kimbrel in the post?
The stuff of nightmares.
Price is unreliable. I don't want to see him anywhere near the mound in a key situation. But at least he wasn't putting base runners on with a four run lead. I'd be less critical of Moranta in that spot if the batters hit their way on.
And Kimbrel at closer... I've said all along I hope AF & Co. are working on a plan B for the playoffs. The good teams would eat him up.
the pen is definitely a weak spot
but if not for injuries a guy like moronta would still be washing dishes
no excuse for kimbrel
but guys like bickford and vesia have been overextended
and caleb looks like he’s feeling his way back
on the positive…
evan phillips has been fucken nails
treinen, may, kahnle, bazooka should be returning before season’s end, and we might even see victor and duffy
also when ferris and heaney come back it greatly increases our bullpen depth
Hudson's injury was a backbreaker. We really need to get Blake back and back to top form. Hopefully Kimbrel can be some semblance of decent so we can go into the playoffs with Treinen, Phillips, Ferguson, and Kimbrel as the main guys with Graterol there too and can rely on them but 1-2 trades for the bullpen is definitely needed (I said this same thing last year and they did nothing though).
The lineup a year ago today
