I consider the Reds lucky that our fine stadium didn't burn to the ground, Drow.
The Giants' Molotov Cocktails were not on the Ohio River.

Woe to your fine baseball stadium if they had been. :posey2 ;)

Once again the true star was the bullpen, who were compelled to pitch 4.0 high-leverage innings. The GIANTS also enjoyed just-enough offense, largely from :posey2 and MVPANIK as well as a good deal of it originating from the bench, as CRAWFORD had a pinch-hitting home run late, VOGT reached base from the bench and scored a run thanks to that magnificent :posey2 home run which accounted for half of the GIANTS' 6 runs. :mark: :mark: :mark: :banderas

:posey2 CRAWFORD. MVPANIK. VOGT. DUGGAR. GOTT. WATSON. MORONTA. SMITH.

Re: THE FIERS OF NO-HIT HELL FOR THE REDS

I was kind of surprised this was Fiers's second no hitter. But not that surprised. He's never been ace caliber, but he's been a solid pitcher.

Plus it's in Oakland so should it count? Not because fuck the A's but because of that lol foul territory.

Also fuck the A's.

Mitch Moreland has been in the MLB for 9 years and has a career high of 23 HRs (2013, 2015), with today's bomb against the Mariners he has 12 HRs in 36 games. This will be the year of Mitchy 4 Bags.

Hunter Pence is outperforming the entire Giants lineup in almost every offensive stat

By Mike Moffitt, SFGATE Updated 4:18 pm PDT, Tuesday, May 14, 2019

It's no mystery why the Giants let fan favorite Hunter Pence go last year.

An anemic .221 batting average, four home runs and dreadful OPS of .590 — not exactly the numbers you expect out of a position player making $18.5 million.

After 12 years and three championships, time had finally caught up with Pence.

Or had it?

The Texas Rangers signed the Arlington native to a $2 million deal in what was expected to be a reserve role at best. Maybe that fidgety bat still had some pinch hits in it.

Now they're having trouble keeping him out of the everyday lineup.

It's a small sample size to be sure, but as of Tuesday Pence was outperforming the entire Giants batting order in almost every major offensive category — and that's with far fewer at-bats. Here are the comparisons:

Batting average
Best Giant: Steven Dugger — .265
Pence: .316

Home runs
Best Giant: Evan Longoria, Kevin Pillar — 6
Pence: 7

Runs Batted In
Best Giant: Pillar — 21
Pence: 25

On Base Percentage
Best Giant: Brandon Belt — .347
Pence: .389

Slugging
Best Giant: Pablo Sandoval — .577
Pence: .658

OPS (50 or more at-bats)
Best Giant: Pablo Sandoval — .859
Pence: 1.047

Hits
Best Giant: Dugger — 39
Pence: 25 (Note Dugger has nearly twice as many at-bats as Pence)

WAR (Wins Over Replacement)
Best Giant: Dugger and Sandoval — 0.7
Pence: 0.9

Come back, Hunter. Everything about 2018 is forgotten.

Hello Funkmaster DROW.

It seems VLADDY just needed to play the Giants to bust out of his slump. Why couldn't he have played the Giants 2 weeks ago?

Hello JM.

@CamillePunk; @MillionDollarProns; @scrilla; @FitChi; @THE MAN,THE MYTH,THE SHIV; @TKOK;

Giants now about 30 games under .500. :banderas (Okay really 12 games under .500 but on June 1 that is effectively the same thing.)

This is fantastic. Just keep piling up those Ls as the Giants need them more than Ws at this point. I can taste that 2020 top-3 pick right now. So juicy.

This is particularly so against the Blue Jays, and, this week especially, versus the Marlins and Orioles of Baltimore. The Giants are unable to influence the landing spots of the Kansas City Royals or Detroit Tigers, but as a fellow GIANTS fan noted, it is up to the San Francisco squad to do one thing in 2019:

DEFEND THE BASEMENT!

Let’s give the Giants credit. They are facing fierce tank-off competitors. The Giants think that the tank is their ally. The Miami/Florida/South Beach/Whatever Marlins were born in the tank. And yet the Giants wrested that tank-off series against them, dropping two out of three games. It was terrific. And now they are in a superb position to tank/take this series. Just need one of the other two. It’s forgivable if they win one game this weekend but let’s hope it’s only one and a sweep would be delicious!

DEFEND THE BASEMENT! :mark:

GIANTS :mark:

@CamillePunk; @MillionDollarProns; @scrilla; @FitChi; @THE MAN,THE MYTH,THE SHIV; @TKOK;

And with the 10th pick, the San Francisco Giants select...


Left-handed batter and Hunter Bishop went to Serra and ASU... Left-handed batter and outfielder Barry Bonds went to Serra and ASU. Science.

Something else about Hunter Bishop? There are pictures of him as a little kid wearing GIANTS gear. Palo Alto's own little lifelong GIANTS fan...

Re: THE FIERS OF NO-HIT HELL FOR THE REDS

Our lord and savior Chris Sale just pitched a CGSO with a fucking immaculate inning in the 8th and missed throwing a Maddux by 2 pitches. His final line was 9 IP, 3 H, 0 R/ER, 12 K, 0 BB, 102 pitches. He's also the one of only 2 pitchers to throw 2 immaculate innings in a single season, the other being Lefty Grove in 1928. Pure insanity.

Re: THE FIERS OF NO-HIT HELL FOR THE REDS

The Seattle Mariners' Edwin Encarnacion to the New York Yankees via trade.

Definitely a fine pickup for the Yankees.

Their starting rotation is not altogether imposing so it is falling to a power-laden lineup receiving boosts via this trade and the returns of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton along with their fine bullpen that will have to carry the load.
