7/18 Cheering, Venting and lol Bochy

Postby GiantsFan14 » Wed Jul 18, 2012 2:00 pm

Since I've been forced to make this thread so I can post about the early games while I procrastinate doing homework, I'm pretty much going to post some stuff about the Giants and you guys can all just gloss over it and get to chatting.

Andrew Baggarly ‏@CSNBaggs
I asked Bochy if Sanchez's bat is preferable to Belt's. "Yeah, I think that's fair to say. Wouldn't you?"


No Bochy, I would not.

Brandon Belt: .246/.356/.402
Hector Sanchez: .281/.286/.383

How can a major league manager have literally no idea how to value OBP?

Image

Not only does playing Hector put a much worse hitter in the line up, but Hector is a TERRIBLE reciever and Belt is a great defender at first. You're massively downgrading two positions defensively so that you can put a worse hitter in the line up. There is not a worse manager in baseball.

I obviously don't blame Sanchez for Bochy, but I can't help but be a little happy to see Hector going on the DL (it's not a serious injury). I just hope to all hell that Brandon produces in the time that he's out or I have no faith whatsoever that he'll ever play again.

I don't know where you guys get your game info from, so you're gonna have to deal with lol formatting.

In other news, Ricky Romero is bad and Yankees stadium is still a joke of a park.

Brett Lawrie had to be helped off the field after crashing into the photographer's well trying to catch a pop up. Apparently it didn't look good.

He was showing signs of improvement in his last 2 starts, but I wouldn't look at this game as a red flag. I've owned Romero for the better part of the last 3 years and I've learned to never start this guy against NYY or BOS. It seems like both of those teams just own him. Every. Single. Time.

Cliff Lee career against LAD: 4 starts, 30 IP, 3 ER 35 Ks
Kershaw career against Philly: 7 starts, 40 IP, 22 ER, 43 Ks

Should be interesting...
