great moment in a great rivalry (LA-SF)

Postby perlick29 » Thu Jun 24, 2004 10:16 pm

Michael Tucker (whom I own which is why I was watching) faced off against Eric Gagne. Tucker saw a pitch up and in, went down and starting at Gagne. Without hesitation Gagne walked like a man possessed but with a swagger right at Tuck. The look on Tucker's face was priceless, like, "somebody hold me back! but not because I'm gonna fight because Gagne might kill me!) It was great they both got tossed in the middle of the count and Gagne nearly went after the umpire. Awesome stuff. any one else watching? Best of all it was described all by the legendary Vin Scully.

I was watching , but I didn't get that impression from Tuckers facial expressions. He didn't look at all scared to me, like he would have fought if he hadn't gotten held back.

really? maybe it was a quick flash but it was most certainly there. Finally the answer to a new trivia question has arrived:

Name the 1000th way to commit suicide:
Answer: Fight Eric Gagne.

I was watching. The ball wasn't even close. Tucker overreacted, and Gagne got pissed.

I wanna see Gagne throw at Barry.

;-D

I hate it when hitters make a big deal about an inside pitch........ie: Manny and Jose Guillen...those 2 don't understand the concept of backing a hitter off the plate...........

It may not have hit him, but you know Gagne wanted to get him back for the little brushup with Tuck and Weaver yesterday. And you know Tuck was still simmering from that and from seeing the hated Dodgers in town for 4 games, so he probably overreacted. THIS is why the Giants-Dodgers rivalry is WAY underrated and forgotten because of the east coast bias. I hate Eric Gagne and the Dodgers with a passion.

No, he's not. Vin Scully is more than an announcer. He's an institution. I could listen to Vin Scully talk for hours on end...about anything. What a beautiful man.
