Game 74 Thread: June 25 @ Giants, 7.15p

Nathan Eovaldi (0-3, 2.35) vs. Barry Zito (5-5, 4.35).

Barry Zito is the bomb.

There was obviously a lot of pressure on this poor troubled soul when Zito signed his seven-year, $126M deal with the Giants back in 2007. And despite his 48-66 record to date, he has come through huge this year for the Giants, catalyzed by a shutout victory in his first start of the 2012 season. In between relaxing meditation sessions by the Golden Gate bridge with only a guitar as his companion, Zito has powered his way to a 5-5 record, blemished but a tad by his last three starts and their accompanying collective 10.60 ERA.

But fear not, true believers. Even when his gargantuan contract expires in 2014 (assuming the Giants pick up his one-year option, of course!), Zito will be just fine setting up shop on a corner of the Tenderloin district, strumming some of his self-penned tunes for tips.

Zito goes up against a Dodger pitcher who has had some flashes of brilliance this year (MLB.com has a video touting his promise). However, Eovaldi not only sports a winless record of his own; he hasn't pitched in a game all season in which the Dodgers won (they are 0-5 in his five starts). The Dodgers come into AT&T Park with a scant three-game lead in the NL West, having lost consecutive series to Oakland and the Angels on the road. The Dodgers have scored only 13 runs in their last six games.

Zito, this one's in the bag, man! What could possibly go wrong?

You take away those first two innings and we lose 1-0.

Orel said...

Take away all the Giants' runs and we're going into extras!

rbnlaw said...

When does the Dodger team pride come off the DL?

Orel said...

Not before the ASB, rbn.

Paul said...

We just need help in the areas of pitching and hitting.

Alex said...

^ and growing a satchel to start throwin at mufuckas

Hideo Nomo said...

And fielding.

Orel said...

And general baseball playing.

Orel said...

Nine-run ninth! Here we go!

Hideo Nomo said...

And base running.

Hideo Nomo said...

Orel, what's the age of consent for a giraffe?

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm asking for this guy named Grandon Grelt.

Alex said...

PISS

Orel said...

Nine-run ninth with two out! Here we go!

Orel said...

I know Grandon!

NicJ said...

Im guessing all those empty seats in the crowd were Dodger fans.

Orel said...

Nine-run ninth with two out and two strikes! Here we go!

Orel said...

Hey guy in faded orange hoodie standing behind home plate: you're even embarrassing Giants fans.

Orel said...

If nothing else, we hurt Hector Sanchez. Worthwhile game.

NicJ said...

Eo still didn't get any run support.

Orel said...

You'd think he'd get seven runs tonight.

Alex said...

"So you're telling me there's a chance?"

Orel said...

TGJ with the meaningless double!

NicJ said...

Getting thrown out while stumbling over first trying to got for two would have been a fitting end.

Orel said...

fucking PGTUP
