NO, ITS NOT!

its the pathetic giants for christ sake!
and not only do you not make it through 6, but you blow the lead as well so no chance for a win.
now i know why everyone hates owning this guy.


in his defense, the tying run scored on an error and melky's was the only ball that was hit all that hard.

omfg the first base umpire in teh SF/Mil game is horrible.
does mlb just not give a sh@t how bad it looks when the officiating constantly changes the outcome of games, yet they wont use the inexspensive and readily available technology to rectify the situation?

baseball is clearly the most poorly officiated of all 4 major american sports

Well, he does have social anxiety disorder :-b

but yeah, it is ridiculous. Guy had an epic WHIP going through five, and then gets hit by a bus. :,-(

It's baseball, just like when we lost to Mr. 3.50 WHIP Suppan this week 0-5, it happens. :-t

I knew the LOB in the first two innings would come back to bite us :~(

Josh Johnson is going to need to show me two good starts in a row before he's in my lineup again. I can't believe the year he's having.

in his defense the Giants have 3 batters in their lineup who could hit double A pitching.

god i hate being a giants fan.
almost as much as i hate owning greinke.

it would be so incredibly easy to have an ump in a booth to review all calls as they happen. calls are pretty cut and dry in baseball, if the ump got it wrong, you rectify the situation as best as you can and move on with the game. if it's one of those calls where it's too close to tell, then the initial call stands. i doubt it'd even add much time to the game since you could basically do away with managers arguing.

Good point. It probably would require the same amount of time that managers waste by arguing calls that get overturned 0.0% of the time due to managers yelling at them.

ya completely agree. why mlb wont change is a complete mystery, and utterly infuriating.


edit - wow so i went on that long greinke rant then I look at that SD box score... it appears Bass bounced back very nicely after that horrible 1st inning.
am i reading things wrong, or is he actually in line for the W now??




re-edit - omfg so i was right, until the horrible gregerson was allowed to come into the game for SD.
tehy WERE actually in the lead and had Bass lined up for a W, but nooooooooooooo
what a terrible day for my pitchers.

I feel bad for Heath Bell. He's easily one of the nicest guys in the game.
