2 walks, batters in the waiting take notice of who is in trouble!!! Don’t get swing happy!
Pineda is looking tired. Back to back walks.
goodnight…we will win this game.
Good eye, now tell Gonzo þo bunt the guys over. No rally killing BS.
BUNT THEM OVER…
Nova Scotia Steve
Chris from the Rock
Gonzo is due.
Did’nt we knock Lee around the last time we faced him?
patience is a sweet thing. Two walks! It would be better if someone besides Gonzo was strolling to the plate.
June 28th, 201111:57 pm
here comes a really bad bunt attempt
Let’s pinch hit for gonzalez, with Conrad.
Am I the only one who is annoyed by the way Pineda wears his hat cock-eyed?
Let him swing baby! You bet!!
June 28th, 201111:58 pm
there you go give him the take sign forget the bunt
You gotta let Gonzo swing the bat here.
You got the guy rattled. Don’t let him get an easy out.
Gonzo will do Nothing here!
Bank on It!
Pineda seems to be losing it.
Here comes the pop up.
Are you retarded?!
Don’t you F this up Gonz!
June 28th, 201111:59 pm
Why isn’t he bunting here?
here comes the double
Seriously. Why isn’t he bunting??????
He makes me Lust for Rey Sanchez or Jose Hernandez!
June 29th, 201112:00 am
Obvious, well not really, thought he would pop out. Kind of surprising.
I was trying to hope…
Why was Gonzo swinging away? He is an automatic out
I stand corrected.
Rafael Belliard right now > Alex Gonzalez
The A Bomb
Mr. Clutch comes through again.
Why is he not bunting?
And Alex gets another round of applause.
At least he didn’t hit for DP.
Gonzo looked horrible there.
Just one terrible hitter and a manager that seems clueless. FU*a I’m pissed
He looked like he was trying to strike out.
That is pathetic.
Come on Nate.
A Gonzo strike-out on a pitch that never even began in the strike zone…play the record again Alex.
How do you not make him bunt or pinch hit for him? FG needs to learn how to move runners.
Really, Fredi? All year long you bunt when you shouldn’t, and then you choose NOT to bunt with one of our worst hitters at the plate, and he follows through with the K.
Unbelievable. I’ve never insulted the skipper’s intelligence. But that’s pushing it.
June 29th, 201112:01 am
Elonbrave–Have you actually seen his bunt attempts?
I am no huge fan of the bunt, but I thought for sure Fredi would call for it.
he CANT bunt…that’s the problem.
Why didnt they have AGON bunt????
I would take the legendary Luis Gomez right now.
at this point you gotta be sitting on the slider right?
0-15 and no sacrifice UNBELIEVABLE1!!!!
We just made a Perfect Score on the Gonzo At-Bat…Where are our Smiley face stickers and cupcakes?
Gonzo is a good bunter based on my observations as well.
June 29th, 201112:02 am
My theory: Fredi was in the John that whole at-bat. Or had a stroke. Or hates seeing runs.
HE DID NOT SWING!
Oh common! That is a gift call.
don’t look a Fredi, Nate .. he’s not going to do anything
Mike Mordecai > Alex Gonzalez
In that situation, I think a strike out is better than a blown bunt attempt.
Those were really the only two options anyway.
He was going to screw it up anyway.
He is Due!!!
I’m just disgusted.
June 29th, 201112:03 am
you know….i’ve tried, but i’m just not a big fan of alex gonzalez.
I guess Alex is forgiven.
AGon isn’t a very good bunter, but I think it was the right play
Good eye Nate
This loss is on Fredi Gonzalez…..You absolutely MAKE AG bunt there
Now, here comes the double play.
Not a single one of those three pitches Alex swung at were in the strike zone. I continue to be surprised how he can be so undisciplined at his age and level of experience, especially in a that spot (i.e. trailing by 1 run late with runners on 1st and 2nd and no outs. Better than a double play.
Nice eye there, Nate.
They say a manager doesn’t win or loose many games,well freedy proves them wrong.
June 29th, 201112:04 am
We Better Score Here! Otherwise I might Throw my bottle of White Zinfindel….
Our AWFense can’t be that bad? Can It?
We need a better hitting SS
fredi is forgiven for not having alex bunt
net result is now the same
bases loaded, 1 out
How about a suicide squeeze right here.
2 walks to leadoff, AGon takes a first pitch ball and then starts flailing, and then the guy walks another after K’ing Alex
Just a bloop single, a SAC-RBI, or a walk, Jordan.
We better capitalize here!!
June 29th, 201112:05 am
Rafael Belliard>Alex Gonzalez.
Gonzo’s new nickname is ‘Auto’. As in automatic out when he’s at the plate. It’s like we only have two outs per inning when he’s up. Think we should have a handicap when he’s up.
Ok, maybe Alex G is a horrible bunter. I can’t remember (or find) the last time he sacrificed.
Well lets see if Schafer can prove me wrong. We need one of his fly outs about now, not the K.
Strange game this one. Pineda looked like he was going to throw a no-hit and Hanson looked like he was not going to make out the 4th inning. Hanson finished strong and Pineda faded down the stretch. I just love this sport.
Well bunting wouldn’t have really changed this outcome. Alex Gonzalez swung at 3 balls when Pineda couldn’t find the strike zone he even walked Uggla for crying out loud
eric- I was thinking maybe a safety
June 29th, 201112:06 am
A left-handed pitcher. Damnit.
John Leonard, you got that right. We don’t score here and it could go back to him not having Gonzo try and bunt those runners over.
Now Schafer needs to come through here which will be tough for him to do.
Eric Wedge should make a guest appearance on American Chopper.
Eric: I’m liking that idea especially with Schafer’s speed he just has to get the ball out far enough. Then again I want a lead ha.
This where we start hitting lefties?
@ Chris from the Rock, good call on Raphael Belliard. I saw him scouting at a game a few years ago.
one of Schafer’s patented flyballs would come in handy right now.
No dp please
June 29th, 201112:07 am
Not another strike out
Come on Jordan sac fly
or a balk or hit by a pitch. Just get that run in.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
