Gameday Open Thread/Giants @ Cubs

The same two clubs meet again with Jonathan Sanchez and a split-squad Giants team taking on Carlos "Kichigai " Zambrano.


for no reason....weird bug. Unfortunately don't have time ti fix it now.

Soriano LF
Theriot SS
Fuku RF
Lee 1B
Fontenot 2B
Pie CF
Cintron 3B
Blanco C
Zambrano P

Top four could be what we see on Opening Day?

Fontenot hits a homer... hit him fifth the next day! I love Spring Training.

If you want to follow the action, here is the MLB Gameday link:

Good to see the big guy is already in mid-season form.

Roberts 4-3
Velez reaches on E1
Velez SB
Velez to 3rd on WP

1 run, 1 hit, 1 error, 0 left.

Hey, at least it's unearned.

2 hits.. pardon... 1 left

it seems a bit slow..

Velez was hear in Connecticut last year and he can FLY!!! He was rated the fastest guy in the Eastern League last year.

Is there no audio today? That makes me a sad panda.

now pitching, rich hill

3-1 Cubs

Aram may Dh tomorrow according to WSCR>

I fully expected to see a "Boy, the Cubs really dirtied Sanchez in the first inning" comment.

And now there is one.

Fuku, 2 walks, 2 runs scored

now 4-2

Great stuff Cubster...

Fuku=OB Machine.

so no one is chatting? what am i going to do without my crunch pitch-by-pitch account...

Campaigning to start a "web opening congratulatory beer fund" for RobG and the crew, but no PayPal button.

It used to be called Rob's "Hookers and Liquor fund".

still a little hard to get used to this format...and almost impossible to see who's chatting.

all my eyes see are topics and the word "reply" scanning everything.

my brain is still used to quickly scanning down a line of comments and I'm getting lost on who's actually posting things.

damn retraining my brain to read stuff quickly.

Les Walrond, come on down...your ERA is now 54.00

Giants 8-5 in the 8th

Bonds grand jury testimony unsealed.

According to ESPN he failed "several drug tests" for and tested positive for steroids since 2000.

Bye- Bye Bud.

I can't figure out why the name Martinez-Esteve bothers me so much, but I'll be sure to let you all know when I do.

Popup window is much better than these comments.

Well, it's 8-5 Giants now.

We were winning, but then it was time for the Les Walrond Experience. 4 runa in 2/3 of an inning.

Eyre gave up an un-earned run. Mr. Zero also gave up a run in his inning of work.

Wish I had this commenting thing figured out over here. Then I probably wouldn't 3/44.

Although, I did that at the old site, too. Probably just my own ignorance.

Zeus with a scoreless 9th

15 walks in 2 games whats up with that also k-fuk definately looks
like a on base machine

k-fuk, 1 AB, 2 Runs, 0 Hits

Love it.

"15 walks in 2 games whats up with that"

It's called Giants Syndrome.

  • Dallas Beeler, Corey Black, David Garner, Pierce Johnson, Steve Perakslis, James Pugliese, Duane Underwood Jr, and Rob Zastryzny threw early-morning bullpen side-sessions at Riverview yesterday.  

    Underwood threw last, and received specific one-on-one instruction from pitching coach Mike Mason. 

  • HAGSAG: There are only five advanced instructs squads left, and presently the only "co-op" team operating is the Angels/Cubs.

    The league was originally established as a "parallel" league to the AFL (a sort of "junior AFL"), for players too advanced for traditional ("basic") instructs but who were unable to get placed on AFL rosters due to AFL player-limits.

  • He is but I would think it'd be better to start out with offense and then bring in Jackson and LaStella once they have a lead. Stella has very good PH #s too.

  • most likely cost sharing + the league is short on players anyway. not many teams are chipping in on 'advanced instructional.'

  • I'm glad this is a one game playoff coming up, because McCutchen is one of my favorite MLB players. And as a baseball fan, I rather like the Pirates. I hope we beat them bad, of course. No mixed feelings here. And, I don't want a nail biter. Too old for that shit. The team of moran fans is easy to hate, though, and more suitable for a longer series.

  • A Jurickson Profar sighting!!!!???

  • I'd guess Jackson over Coghlan for the defense.

    EDIT: Now that I think about it, is Jackson a better defender?

  • Less stress on the pitching staff?

  • I recall earlier this season when the Cubs played Bryant in center instead of left due to the weirdness that is the PNC outfield.

  • AZ Phil, what is the reason the Cubs are co-oping this team? They seem to have plenty of talent that would fill a roster.

  • RF is actually easier to play than LF in PNC so I'd guess Schwarber is there and that's why he was playing it Friday but yeah I'd say that's hopefully accurate.

  • Guess for Wednesday's lineup: Fowler (CF), Schwarber (LF), Bryant (3B), Rizzo (1B), Castro (2B), Montero (C), Russell (SS), Arrieta (P), Coughlan (RF)

  • Dusty already has blue and red wrist bands.

    /cmon dude

  • a day old, but fwiw...

    Carrie Muskat @CarrieMuskat · Oct 4
    Theo and Jed at Miller Park to talk to #Cubs Maddon and staff. Playoff roster to be finalized by Wednesday morning

  • I'm guessing the order is the other way around.

  • cc sab going into alcohol rehab, missing the post-season for the yanks.
