#61, doesn’t DRS require a lot of subjective analysis by some 2000 “scouts” that assess the defensive plays often off of video? Not sure it is scientific or fine tuned yet. Don’t they assess the range, speed of ball, etc. subjectively? Objectivity includes your actual BA, how many times you hit into DPs, etc. We may not have anyone better than Gonzo yet but he would make a great #8 batter.
Was at the Ted tonight. Smallish crowd. Don’t know what was announced, but it was probably 20k or thereabouts. It was a weird game because it was flying by. We moved twice and somehow found ourselves sitting in front of the most obnoxious SF fans twice. Which clearly these people had never stepped in foot in SF. Which really made them such twice as bad. Fair weather losers. So when Prado won the game I did a rather subdued Hulk Hogan neck crane hand over ear maneuver at them to mock their sudden silence. It was quite satisfying.
Vinnie said it was foul on the replay, but I swear that Bourn hit landed right in front of us and you could see the grass torn up where it had landed and it looked like it hit the line.
Great win, either way. And go to see Brooksy score the winning run against the Giants. He got a big cheer when he came up and even more so when he hit his double.
I don’t know if everyone has seen this. It’s the eulogy from Ernie Johnson’s funeral that was given by Ernie Johnson Jr. It’s really great. Funny and touching. I think I can speak for all the hosts that no guest has been nicer than Ernie Johnson Jr. He really was beyond reproach.
89 – yeah, me too. I think we’re going to win the series, and not just split it. That said, we’ve got to do better than 2 runs against a team consisting of two or three regulars in there, especially when we’ve got a completely healthy lineup going for us.
