Game Thread - The Russ E.R.TIZ Streak

Tonight, the Giants battle the always fearsome Pittsburgh Pirates. And Russ Ortiz continues his pursuit of Anthony Young's remarkable 27 game losing streak. (You can read about Ortiz's foibles HERE) 12 Down, 15 to go!

Sidenote: In 1993, Anthony Young went 1-16 with a 3.77 ERA - pretty much identical to Barry "ACE" Zito! And Zito gets over $100 Million while Young gets a lifetime of infamy. Roger Clemens officially has NOTHING to complain about.

I for one love the Ortiz updates from Delino. It's like watching a car wreck in slo-mo.

But I think Ortiz is going to put a restraining order on Delino...

He put a restraining order on his changeup - it's not allowed within a 100 feet of the strike zone!

He's only one win away from NEVER being mentioned by Delino again.

Giants gave Ortiz a five run cushion. If he blows this one, then I am powerless in my response.

Orel said...

Six runs now....

Mr Ortiz - I take back NOTHING. Enoy your new streak of one win in a row.
