MLB headline writer: Lincecum has GRIT

Tim, get somebody to clean your weed better. One way is, get an album cover, the kind that folds out. You know, the cardboard case for a record. You don't have any? OK, there's other ways. Get a spaghetti strainer.

Scutaro article on Fangraphs

The guy does not strike out. Down in the comments they discuss Scutaro as a #6 hitter, moving Belt to #2 which is interesting.

Swoop on Yorvit?

9

Sure I am overly attached to former Giants. Rangers went younger with Soto, who at times has been an excellent hitter. Yorvit used to play second base and left field in winter ball, could still back up those positions I bet. Meanwhile Hector Sanchez could develop in a normal fashion in Fresno. I don't have the salary info, but as a DFA isn't Texas on the hook for that anyway? If Yorvit isn't signed before it's Giants' turn, which is a big if. IF.

Zito predicted by Fangraphs to fall to earth

10

In case you didn't notice the Fangraphs headline on the main page, Mat Klaasen concludes that Zito's current success is not sustainable. Not enough strikeouts; low BABIP; amazingly high rate of stranded runners if they reach. Then there's my observation: Zito thrives when there's an extra day's rest between starts. When he's on a 5-day cycle repeatedly, his velocity goes down even more and he gets hit hard. Please join me in anti jinxing tonight, when he does have extra rest.

Belt stands farther from home plate, Belts the ball

3

alright, Bam Bam reads my posts and helped Brandon B make an adjustment. Lots of Giants stand too close. Barry Bonds could do that and still hit the inside pitch. Belt, Pablo, Huff, not as well. Beltran, last week, stood noticeably farther from the plate from all the other lefty batters.

Giants swap Velez for Tejada, says Miggy's new adoptive dad

So now I will have to follow another team in addition to our World Champion Giants, after I find where Eugenio lands. Could be Fresno, that's my hope. Or Veracruz, Mexico, that's OK, I need to work on Spanish. I hope it's not the Yankees. Anyway, adopting Tejada, changing sig soon.

Belt--HR in his second AB in triple A

14

after that they walk him twice; one of those followed by a Guzman dinger. The other followed by Belt stealing second, scoring on a Pill single. As the Griz battle back from 4-0 deficit. Then in the 9th, against 95MPH closer, with Burriss on 2nd, Belt uppercuts and bounces to first. My lad Velez homers too. Hacker wild and also got hit hard, it coulda been worse. Runzler not real sharp, and wearing Kinney's number. Belt maybe misplayed a well hit opposite field long fly, it went for a double and the guy scored. In the first, he also got deked or surprised after catching a fly by a fast guy tagging and taking second. Didn't score, though. Weird decision: 8th inning, bases juiced, 2 out, catcher Jackson Williams due up against the closer, they pinch hit...with Steve Holm, who bounces to pitcher. Why not Bond? Or Graham? Jax did have a nice CS to nail the Cats' shortstop, Sogard, who made lots of loud contact.
