Game 159 Thread: Sept 26 @ Giants, 7p

Edinson Volquez (9-12, 5.77) vs. Tim Lincecum (10-14, 4.44).

Ricky Nolasco's sub-par performance last evening put our postseason starting rotation more into doubt. (He lost to Barry Zito, for pete's sake.) And there's already been enough sadness and tragedy around Phone Book Park in the last 24 hours.

So let's see if Volquez can deliver us a series win tonight and get us back in the happy column. Except, wait a second, we want the Giants, currently the 11th-worst team in the majors, to not fall into the bottom 10, right?

Ah, this is so confusing. No it's not!

When was the last time Crawford hit a home run???

I'm getting a little tired of his Punch and Judyness.

Hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

@Neeebs: May 6th.

Holy shit.

It's getting to the point of wondering if AGon was worth the dead weight he brought with him.

Punto's head first slides make for Twitter gold, at least.

Watching the Rams-49ers game on the NFL Network, does Mayock ever shut the hell up?

Dusty Baker said...

Finally home from work, Vinny!

Wash yer hair, Timmeh!

Dusty Baker said...

This place is a ghost town. I hope everyone is saving their powder for the playoffs.

BJ Killeen said...

Had to jump to new TBBT.

Sad this is the best we can do. Beli sucks

Dodgers have been a funk the last three weeks. WAKE THE FUCK UP!

As you were.

I'm saving my vitriol for the postseason. Like Rodriguez and Belisario, we worked a lot of long innings earlier in the season.

What was Wilson doing after the game?

Paul said...

The Giants station is calling Wilson " totally unprofessional". He was your clown prince and now you sensibilities are offended? Fuck you Frisco.

BJ Killeen said...

This is not how a championship team plays

Paul said...

Rough night. Booooooooze. *faints*

Dusty Baker said...

What were they criticizing Wilson for?

I saw footage of him going over to talk to people he obviously knew, in a friendly sort of way.

At this point I'm a pretty big Wilson apologist, admittedly, but I didn't see anything or hear about anything out of bounds.

Paul said...

I guess that was the President of the Giants. Rumor is Wilson had some issues with security. Giants announcers had to say he was showing up Timmy on his big win. Whatever. Wilson being Wilson. He felt like he needed to say something. It would have been cute to all those guys if he was wearing orange and black.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, say that again (tad more clearly) Paul? Missed what you meant.

A well placed source tells me Wilson is upset he still hasn't received his 2012 World Series ring. He was communicating that to Baer.

Dusty Baker said...

Ah, here is more:

all part of the master plan to get the Gnats to resign Timmeh for too much money?

or just a dud of a game?
