Game 42…it’s getting eerie 284

So we had the same 20-20 record..BMac goes on the DL on the exact same date, and we are starting to tank just like last year? Can I use this Groundhog Day scenario to my advantage?.

We join this game thread already in progress…B1 still scoreless.

    IDK, we’ve gotten value from unexpected places this year, I’m postponing the WAGD till the 7th inning stretch at least.

    And oh good, here is Barton not snagging another difficult but catchable ball.

    • Future Ed Future Ed May 20,2012 1:36 pm || Up

      I think that hit the runner and the A’s got hosed on another bad call on a bunt

      • lenscrafters May 20,2012 1:36 pm || Up

        Yeah, he was inside the base line.

          I think that was the subject of the owners meeting.

          Everytime someone bunts on the A”s make sure you put the runner on first. Take that what I obviously didn’t understand about moneyball

    By the way, I’m about ready to get on the “Sue MLB to get rid of the Antitrust Exemption” bandwagon.

    It’s a ridiculous exemption, and Selig at this point is simply laughing in the faces of A’s fans. So FK him, and MLB’s precious exemption too. The sheer absurdity of telling the A’s they can’t move over “territorial rights” granted to the Giants for a move they didn’t make is beyond absurd, and the team I root for can’t compete in a serious way in Oakland.

      Pennington will be a threat to hit 2nd as long as he’s short, scrappy, and white.

        Is there really any viable option to replace him at this point?

        • lenscrafters May 20,2012 1:56 pm || Up

          Any time Barton’s in the lineup and he’s not hitting second, it’s a waste of the one thing he does well.

          Especially when you bat him in front of Suzuki instead.

        On Colon’s bunt, Suzuki wasn’t even halfway to third, making it an easy play for Belt.

        Suzuki has a knack for never running shit out but because he’s a gritty gamer, he never gets called out on it.

        • dmoas May 20,2012 2:23 pm || Up

      • dmoas May 20,2012 2:21 pm || Up

        I love how long it took for Colon to get to second base.

        • beebo beebo May 20,2012 2:25 pm || Up

          Call me crazy, but running (or making sudden movements) doesn’t seem to be one of Colon’s stronger points.

        • nevermoor nevermoor May 20,2012 6:39 pm || Up

          Thoughts seeing it live:

          1. Cool, wild pitch
          2. Oh shit, they might throw Colon out
          3. HOLY SHIT COWGILL
          4. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

        On the replay it looked like Joyce almost ran into Cowgill’s path. That could have been fun had he ran over him. Not sure how they’d have called it, but still fun.

        Nothing against Lincecum, but he’s the Giants’ superstar, so watching him get clocked was quite enjoyable.

        Plus, it was a totally clean play by Cowgill. That’s how you do it.

  39. Englishmajor Englishmajor May 20,2012 2:19 pm

    Cue the Giants whining about people being too rough on the basepaths again in 3…2…1…

    see vince, if you’d at all hinted that lincecum was covering first base, i would have understood how it was physically possible that cowgill was colliding with him.

  43. mother pucker May 20,2012 2:24 pm

    How does Lincecum go from hitting 97 mph in his first season, to not being able to top 90? I realize some drop in velocity may be expected, but this is extreme.

    • dmoas May 20,2012 2:28 pm || Up

      Maybe he’s due for some TJ action.

      • bear88 May 20,2012 2:32 pm || Up

        I strongly suspect the Giants have gotten Lincecum’s best years.

    • brian.only May 20,2012 2:31 pm || Up

      Kind of wonder if he’ll take the mound in the 5th.

    • lenscrafters May 20,2012 2:35 pm || Up

      He was predominantly four seam/curveball when coming up but is now more two seam/changeup. Of course, that doesn’t mean his velocity hasn’t declined, but it just looks worse than it is because he’s throwing a slower fastball more.

      Then again, Pitchfx says his velocity has declined by more than 2 mph since last year so something might be up.

      • brian.only May 20,2012 2:37 pm || Up

        Needs a shorter bong, that reach is killing him.

            This is true.

            I’m amazed how they just tell the kids now that the last couple if weeks dont matter. I remember in school the teachers telling us how they didnt turn in grades til the end, big assignments due last week, etc. We still have 3 weeks left in our district and they already stopped giving homework to eldest Ace (freshman).
