"Well uhhh, Theriot's a righty, and we're uhhh facing a lefty, so I uhhh thought we would uhhh start Theriot ahead of Nate, uhhh."
Honestly, I think if Freddy comes back soon, Crawford will be headed to AAA.
I predict Melky and Pill go deep tonight...Giants win 5-1.
...and after Pill hits his two run shot, their will be 5 threads started saying "Bench Pill Play Belt MORE \ Belt Can hit farther than Pill \ Bochy hates Belt wa wa wa"
"No way Zebs, Bochy ain't that <stupid."
You SUUURRREE about that Cy???? Keep in mind, this is a man who appears to be more than happy with a 5th place hitter hitting .175 just because he had a very good season 2 years ago....
There's always something to b tch about for you guys isn't there? Ohh, Crawford needs a rest...uunh, why isn't Pill starting at second base!
Honestly, it's so disappointing to see our board this way. To me, it's a reflection of how our team is playing right now: plenty of ability, but always playing as if they're not sure how they're going to do. Take a look at the LA Dogs, the bare minimum of what it takes to win, but they're out there trying to just stomp someone every day. A good team and a confident fan base takes what they have and believes fully that they're gonna make it happen that day.
I'm not saying I don't think we should think objectively about our team, it's just so boring this same b tching mentality every day around here.
That's all, and I think Theriot can get the job done out there; Botchy just sent the message to Theriot that he's got confidence in him.
Because Theroit has always hit lefties pretty good. Better chance of production, higher up the lineup. Simple as that.
Also, the batting order past #5 doesn't really make any difference whatsoever to the outcome of a game. Settle down there, big fella.
