re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

Holy fuark! Sale is a monster. 10 days of rest did him well. Threw a 95 MPH fastball right by the first hitter of the game tonight. If you all remember, the median velocity of his fastball was 87 MPH last time out against Texas. Good to see. The Sox need him to be the ace for the rest of the year.

In a related note, Humber was demoted to long relief. Meaning Sale should be going on 5 days rest the remainder of the year.

EDIT:

lmao @ Cleveland's descension. They're falling quicker than any team I've ever seen. They're losing to the Twinkies 12-1 in the 4th inning. Morneau is already 4/4.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

Got a feeling tomorrow's game is going to be even uglier for the Giants, looking at the pitching match-up. Don't see us escaping this series still in first place, unless the Rockies suddenly start playing well against the Dodgers after the thrashing we gave them.


Press Play to wake up.

And then join the 100 Years Alan Pardew Club!

Ok, ok Yu Darvish sucks. I mean he's faced some good lineups recently, but yeah, I don't think he's gonna make in MLB.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

Teams have made an adjustment to him now that he's gotten some time in the big leagues. Still, he's striking out over 10 guys per 9. Biggest problem is he walks almost 5 per 9 which is just unsustainable for success. He's not been terrible, but controls clearly his biggest issue. He's got the stuff to succeed, though.

They should just let him pitch with his entire arsenal of pitches and see what happens. Limiting him to what you want him to be restricts a player from playing freely and loosely.

I'm just frustrated he's getting hit hard. He'll come out soon and dominate and I'll be sold again.

He does have control/walk issues he needs to get nailed down. As long as his failures don't fuck with his head, he does have the stuff to right the ship.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

Does anyone know what Carlos Lee is playing for? Vetoes a trade from Houston to the LAD earlier in the year; recently expressed how undesireable of a location New York was when the Marlins wanted to trade him to the Yankees. Is this guy the most content, complacent, laziest ball player we've ever seen?

Maybe he just likes Texas and is firmly settled with his family on his farm...?
