MVPILLAR hits a Grand Slam two nights ago against the Padres--the first GIANTS Grand Slam in over two years by a couple of days, and like that Grand Slam, it came against the Padres, and also like that Grand Slam it proved insufficient for the GIANTS lost anyway.

MVPILLAR then hits a smashing double to left field to clear the bases the next night, and drives in yet another run later in the evening... In a winning effort.

MVPILLAR the first GIANT since BARRY BONDS to amass 8 RBI in two games... That occurred in 2002.



Gotta love baseball.

And, no, JM, he has, I believe, yet to take a walk. Which means he fits in on the team outside of BELT and .

GIANTS

EDIT: MVPILLAR has done it AGAIN! HOME RUN! The one RBI for the GIANTS this game has been from his bat, once again... So that is 9 RBI in three games.

Chris Davis Fittingly Plays For the O's should become the thread title until he attains one hit to BEAT THE STREAK.

What they're saying about Orioles' Chris Davis and The Streak

Baltimore Sun staff
Chris Davis is now in the record books for his hitless streak of 49 at-bats. While you wait for the Orioles first baseman to get his first hit since Sept. 14 (and for your free orange crush at Power Plant Live!), here’s what sports writers and others around the country have to say about his current streak of futility.

“Would you take $23 million a year to get booed into oblivion like Chris Davis?” Ted Berg, USA Today: My colleague Charles Curtis posed this question to me the other day, and I still can’t come up with a good answer: Would you switch places with Chris Davis right now? Would you put on a brave face and flail at Major League breaking balls, and swallow your pride and endure the constant booing and mockery of thousands of angry fans in exchange for butt-tons of money?

Part of me wants to say “oh hell yes,” and insist that I could go out every night, whiff wildly in every at-bat and wear my golden sombrero without shame due to the knowledge that I could afford an actual golden sombrero. Maybe I’d even make the John Manziel “Money” gesture on my walk back to the dugout amid thunderous boos.

But I’m a fairly competitive guy, it’s hard to figure how difficult it would be to perform so poorly and so publicly in any arena in which I once achieved such remarkable success. Chris Davis knows what it feels like to be great at baseball, and I have to guess that makes it significantly harder to stomach being bad at baseball.

“How a Hitless Chris Davis Is Like a $15 Dessert,” The New York Times: Considering the amount of money the team has committed to Davis, his situation might be less suited for a manager like [Brandon] Hyde than it is for someone like Richard Thaler, the Nobel Prize-winning economist at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.

To Thaler, the Orioles’s refusal to sideline Davis is a classic example of the sunk cost fallacy, an economic principle he detailed in his book “Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics.”

“A classic example is you order some dessert at a restaurant and it costs $15,” Thaler said in a phone interview. “You take a couple bites and you realize you were already full and this dessert is really rich, but you feel like you can’t waste the whole thing. So you eat more of it than you should.”

Ideally, Thaler said, the correct decision is to ignore any cost that has already been paid and evaluate the situation strictly on its own merit.

Lulz, let's see if you remember these times in August. Or even June.

But of course he'll make a couple nice catches and his inadequacies will all be forgiven!

Or maybe he'll be MVPillar

Best case scenario is if he has an inexplicably fantastic April-July and the Giants are able to deal him at the deadline for a genuine prospect from some desperate contender.

Re: MLB: Mariners v Rays ALCS incoming...

I seriously might actually think the Tampa Bay Rays are good. Not quite sold on M's being for real yet.

Tampa has much tougher competition though, so the Mariners maybe will be good because they can beat more average to bad teams.

Realistically we barely started playing baseball so all this is just

GIANTS

MVPILLAR with another home run last night... And it was the one run of the entire game.

So... He could hit only so well in Toronto, on the moon, maybe the most advantageous place to hit in baseball... but he can hit, hit, hit in San Francisco, the cavern by the bay which might be the most disadvantageous place to hit in baseball...

Small Sample Size applies, naturally.

SAMARDZIJA! https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/gi...ants-over-year The article to which I just linked promises to display what the new strategy is for Jeff Samardzijia, which is of course why he had his best start in over a year. Nothing to do with the Colorado Rockies being unable to hit right now! (In other words: we'll see. )

MVPILLAR with half of the GIANTS' home runs in half of their games thus far... ...

Re: MLB: Mariners v Rays ALCS incoming...

Chris Davis finally scored a hit! Went 0-54!
@CamillePunk ; @MillionDollarProns ; @scrilla ; @FitChi ; @THE MAN,THE MYTH,THE SHIV ; @TKOK ;

Last night BELT and KRATZ saved all we know and love by being responsible for getting that win in 18 grueling, horrible innings of BASEBALL! MVPABLO! MVPILLAR!

pitching fairly decently today, and MVMORONTA backing him up! Up 3-2 going to the bottom of the 8th! And why? MVPILLAR with two RBI for the day, one via HOME RUN! MVPILLAR is an RBI MONSTER!

GIANTS
