Schadenfreude

While I laugh at the Dodgers and their misfortunes, this article on the McCourt divorce is a reminder of how much a team’s ownership affects the play on the field.

Buster Posey – God of All Gods

So, I was on YouTube looking for video of last night’s play at the plate where one of the Cubbies had their nose bloodied by Buster Posey, and to no great astonishment, I wasn’t able to find anything.   (Thanks MLB for your stupid ideas around copyright.)  Anyway, as I was perusing the list of results, I noticed something about the titles:

1.  Buster Posey – The Chosen One

2.  Buster Posey The Giants Savior

3.  Buster Posey Balanced and In Control

4.  Buster Posey Tribute

5.  Buster Posey History Will Be Made

Etc, etc…

I was waiting to find one that said “Buster Posey – Jesus Christ resurrected” or “Buster Posey – Cures All That Ails You”.  The titles of the clips are ridiculous!  But wonderful.  It’s so fun to be excited about a hitter on the Giants.  It’s been too long.  Also, all of those clips make me feel better about my silly Posey posts.

Goodbye To Mannywood

Not any more.

HAHAHAHAHA!   The Mannywood sign has come down and rumors have it that Manny is even potential trade bait.  Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Posey really IS God

Hey man, how totally awesome is it that we have Buster Posey?  Let’s count the ways..

1.  Super awesome:  this kid can hit.  Longest hitting streak by a rookie since Cepeda (I think it’s Cepeda, he just passed a few folks).

2.  Pretty awesomely awesome:  he can call a good game.  Wasn’t the reasoning behind the Molina signing that Posey wasn’t ready to call a major league game?  Good grief.

3.  Most excellently awesome:  he’s got one of the best baseball names ever.  It’s its own chant: Bus-ter Po-sey!

Too many more awesome to quantify.

Awesome infinity!

p.s. How great is it that Giants fans in AZ had the UUUUU-RIBE  chant going on?  Humungously awesome!  Loud enough to hear on TV.

Behold

The future of the Giants captured in a single picture:

Beautiful.

Lack of Posts

Been on vacation(s).  Will post again soon.

The stars were bright, Fernando

Somehow I got sucked into watching European adverts featuring soccer stars.  This one featuring Fernando Torres is, perhaps, my favorite.
