Greek Giant

The TWG comments are more interesting than the Giants:


You tell em:

Some Lowlights from last night’s 3-0 loss to the Dodgers at Willie Mays Field:

  • Luis Gonzalez gets doubled off second base on a pop up by Yaz with the bases loaded and one out
  • The Giants failed to score with the bases loaded and nobody our or one out, a zillion times
  • The Giants lost their seventh game in a row to the Bums, the worst such streak since 1980
  • Alex Cobb has not won a game since May 17. He deserved better, again, last night
  • The Giants are now 51-54, 20.5 games behind the Dodgers
  • The Giants are closer to last place (six games) than second place (nine games) in the NL West
  • Dodger rookie Miguel Vargas made his MLB debut and went 2-4 with two ribeyes (He’s not even the Dodgers best prospect)
  • Austin Slater struck out looking with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth and two outs to end the game.

Gabe Kapler has lost control of this club.

Enough said.

Honoring Vin Scully

Before the game the Giants and Dodgers held a classy ceremony for the memory of Vin Scully, who died two days ago. Both teams lined up on the foul lines as Scully appeared on the video screen and recited some beautiful words. The Dodgers wore a “Vin” patch on their left sleeves in his honor. Many Giants fans honored Vin Scully with signs and other gestures in camaraderie with Dodger fans. It was a nice moment. Classy all the way around.

Johnson Makes MLB Debut

Bryce Johnson made his MLB debut last night. He went 0-2 with a walk and looks more than competent in center field.

J. D. Davis Makes Giants Debut

Newly-acquired J. D. Davis made his Giants debut last night and played third base. He went 1-4.

Today’s Game

The Giants will try to salvage some self-respect against their rivals from Hollywood in the series finale. It will be Kershaw vs. Junis. We got ’em right where we want ’em, Giants fans. Game time is 12:45 PM, Willie Mays Field time.
