Name nine people who are unlikely to muster any offense against Madison Bumgarner.

Hideo Nomo said...

Y HAMS? Y NOT?

Fred's Brim said...

put your HAMS away

Orel said...

Nice!

Orel said...

Giants get two on in the first inning but UJTD to end it.

Hideo Nomo said...

Checking in. Do we suck?

Orel said...

SVSSB!

Orel said...

@Gnomes: Yup.

karina said...

hey, they don't suck…still

karina said...

Yu Darvish is throwing no-no on the 8th, available at mlb.com

Franklin Stubbs said...

We'll have Schrödinger's suck until TWC gets around to making a deal. They both suck and don't suck until directly observed.

Orel said...

8 2/3!

Orel said...

Hello, lovebirds!

karina said...

Hi, my dearest!

karina said...

About sucking, how awful is getting just one out from a no-no?

karina said...

I am amazed how often Stubbs says "suck" tonight.

Orel said...

We all are, Karina.

Orel said...

Crawford two-run HR. Game over.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Shit on a Ritz

Fred's Brim said...

how the FUCK! do you walk a .180 hitter, then give up a homer to a guy who can't hit it 200 feet?

Fred's Brim said...

FB's surl levels are in the red

Orel said...

We're placing too much pressure on the pitching staff to be perfect. If the bats could score some runs, a two-run deficit wouldn't seem so catastrophic.

Fred's Brim said...

Maholm for another inning or so, then the bullpen, League for a good inning, then Perez or maybe Wilson to give up 2 more runs for a 4-0 loss

Orel said...

Maholm broke Belt's thumb. Expect retaliation?

Fred's Brim said...

very true, Orel
gotta score a couple of runs at least, even against the best pitchers

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel I hope so, let's get some fire sparked

Orel said...

If that's what it takes. I'm willing to sacrifice Crawford or Ethier to the DL.

BJ Killeen said...

Okay, this is Candid Camera right? C'mon out Alan Funt. This isn't funny any more.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

What's going on? Who got hit?

Orel said...

Ma-hallum plunked Belt on the hand in the second. Broken thumb.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Oh well, thems are the breaks...

Franklin Stubbs said...

SOMEBODY still gives a fuck.

Fred's Brim said...

if somebody doesn't get nailed now, they never will

Hideo Nomo said...

I don't take pleasure in guys getting hurt.

But I'm kinda leaning that way, since there's little else to get happy aboutWAITOMGPUIGHOMERED.

Orel said...

Mattingly ejected. Things getting chippy!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Puig was sprinting compared to Barry Bonds HR stroll

Paul said...

BOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

Paul, you have a way with words

Paul said...

I'm blacked out of this game. Someone lead me to the beer.

BJ Killeen said...

I think Maddy got thrown out so he wouldn't have to watch them lose, either.

Orel said...

League's showing more signs of improvement. So there's that.

Fred's Brim said...

could never have seen the backup backup backup catcher hitting into the double play

Fred's Brim said...

wow we are boring

Orel said...

But at least we are predictable.

Paul said...

This feels like last year about this time. Things didn't get right until me and FB went out drinking.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Yawn...

Greg said...

The first pitch in the sequence that ended in the Puig homer was a strike while Puig was stepping back from the plate. Looks like he forgot to call for time.

Greg said...

Maybe it pissed him off enough to hit the HR.

Steve Sax said...

Remember, we were something like 30-42 when we pulled off our 42-8 run, coasting to the playoffs.

That would be nice.
