Jesus did the Giants rape KC on the Cabrera/Sanchez deal or what? What is it with teams giving up on Melky? He must be a total ingrate or something, because he consistently puts up good numbers and is a hell an MLB outfielder.
I know right? So far everything seems fine btw Melky and the organization...and the fans. It'll be interesting to see what he can do in the postseason (#assumption)
There's some crazy talk that maybe the Gs should take another flyer on Sanchez... Couldn't hurt and they could always shitcan him. long relief lefty out of the BP? But then there's Penny and Mota should be due back soon.
The Giants/Braves game tonight was the tale of two games. The teams end up going 1-1 after nine innings (Mike Minor really stepped up for ATL) and then decide to put 11 runs up in the next two extra innings. Crazy, but glad to see the Giants prevail. They've already achieved the series win with Philly next. The Giants broadcasters were inferring that Brandon Belt might be on the block for them. I don't dig that at all, but they're a lot closer to the club than I am.
Weird game. Who saw that coming? a 6 run 11th off the bats of Crawford & Blanco. Heh. I like the Braves, too...when SF isn't playing 'em. Prob my 2nd fave NL team. (it helps that Freeman, McCann, Heyward...and Hudson are all starters for my fantasy team)
I also hope Belt isn't on the block, he still has a lot of promise. I'm hearing more squabbling about Scheirholtz, who isn't happy with his reduced role (don't blame him)...and of course the usual malcontents are on again about Lincecum, like they were in August 2010. (I was one of them back then)
Yeah, I saw a quote from Chipper today being critical of Melky's celebrations in last night's win. He said that was the whole reason Melky wasn't still in Atlanta. Coming from someone like Chipper, it means something. I think the ingrate comment wasn't completely out of left field from me. Tough to gauge what an idiot like that could do toward having a healthy clubhouse.
Seems like Schierholtz is greasing up his ride out of SF. They always seem to have an overabundance of OFs.
