First and foremost, the last time that Matt Cain allowed and earned run, my 2 1/2 year-old son only knew about 4 words. Now, the kid speaks like and damn....speaking.....guy who know..... a lot of words.
I missed the game, had a family day to the Roaring Camp in Felton, but I kept checking in ont he ol' cell phone.
Looks like all of the old guys (led by F Sanchie) drove the bus today. Rowand must've been chomping 'cuz he got a couple hits, scored a couple runs. Sanchez went yard and got some other RBI's. Tejada, batting lead off, got a couple hits, scored a couple, got a couple RBI's. In fact, Burrell was the only starter that didn't get on base, and Belt was the only other starter without a hit (but he walked twice).
10-0, Giants score in bunches again, that was their M.O. last year, lose the one-run gmes, and score a shit-ton for the guy that tosses a shutout.
Cainer only went 6, gave up 5 hits -- I can only figure that Boche didn't want to waste him this early in the season in a route. Personally, I believe in letting pitchers finish shut outs.....
But I'm between managerial jobs.
Like I said earlier, leaving LA with a 2-2 record would be just fine by me, Z's really gotta come through tomorrow out of the 4-hole. I think it's a perfect place for him, v Kuroda.
