Giants never were able to hit, not even last year. They relied heavily on pitching and were able to win on that. But, you can't win if you can't score, the pitchers can only help the team not lose. After Buster Posey's injury, they just don't have any bats to win games.

We have tons of bats besides Posey, they just aren't hitting.  Think about it-we have Aubrey Huff, Pat Burrell, Miguel Tejada, Pablo Sandoval, Cody Ross, Aaron Rowand, Carlos Beltran, Cabrera...We have a lot of people who can and should hit the ball.  Most of our bats are just hitting WAY below their potential, which is what's so frustrating.  Cody Ross is batting like 230 on the year.  That's ridiculous, especially for someone who was the NLDS MVP less than a year ago.

^^^ Hey Bro, it's Aubrey Huff not Cody Huff.  Where'd you get that?  Haha

I agree that there lineup has potential.  The extremely poor hitting has gotten into everyone's head and freaked them out at the plate.  Bochy even had to sit down the pitchers and tell them not to worry about run support.  What the hell does that mean?  Pitch like you have a 10 run lead at Yankee Stadium?  No way

Typo, sitting in class you know how it is hahaha.  The hitting has gotten into my head too I think, we give up a solo home run in the fourth and I'm like okay we're gonna lose this game.

Ok, bunch of bats...of all 30 teams in the MLB, the Giants are for the season:
30th in Runs
28th in Hits
29th in batting avg
29th in OBP
 
ALL of the bats have been slumping, the ENTIRE SEASON! I think that means those bats are not longer bats...

Brian Wilson recently stated in an interview that negative thought have been contributing to their slump. Maybe they just need to practice more. Either way I remain a fan. In good times and in bad. Go Giants!

way too many injuries to repeat with as thin a lineup as we had.

Remember kids, if you have 5 posts on the front page, you're a wh0re
 


it is a sarcastic point...since you seem a little denser than most, look up the tom petty tune "even the losers get lucky sometime"....you might find it has even deeper, personal meaning to you if you really pay attention.  Clap

fyi - i tend to have my posts together because i don't get many chances during the day (especially wkdays) to check out the site and participate in the forums, which i enjoy.

i'd much rather be considered a hussy than a loser that likes to track the posting activities of random strangers...nothing creepy there, right?

i will try and take your advice to become more of a loser than a hussy so i will try and space my posts out by at least a couple mins so creepy friggin losers like you can't bitch about it.

PS - go A's!

There are plenty of other forums for this useless type of flame war if you kids want to take it outside.
