Bustin’ out the hittin’ sticks…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 2:36 am

The first two games had six total runs.  This game had 14 runs and 30 hits.  The 1915 Phillies came back to win 9-5 after trailing early.





I listened to the Giants host the Brewers.  Jeff Francouer is now with the Giants.  I always liked him when he was with the Braves despite his total lack of plate discipline.  The first game I heard him with the Giants, he walked with the bases loaded.  Tonight, he pinch hit with the bases loaded and blooped a hit over the infield.

I was thinking about this and wondered if he was a new player with the Giants.  Then I heard his stats and he is 10 for 46 (.217) with the Giants.  Doesn’t sound like a new player to me.  But as I listened, I was thinking this is the perfect place to use him.  Bases loaded.  He rarely walks and the pitcher has to throw the ball over the plate.  This is the immovable object meeting the unstoppable force or how ever that saying goes.  And Frenchy hit a broken-bat single to score two runs.  And he had the play of the game for a team that went 1-for-13 with runners in scoring position on the night.  He had the one.  Then again, you never know how a baseball game will play out.  You can’t predict baseball.  Life is very good!

There's a fine line between visionary and wrong. Unfortunately, it takes a visionary to see it.
