    If the season ended before today's games, we would be facing L.A. in the playoffs.

        No, we wouldn't. The wildcard can't face it's own division winner in the first round. We'd be facing the Phillies.
        The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

          am I the only one that is shocked we would be in the playoffs, in that scenario?

            I so meant to type Philly. I looked at the standings and had L.A. on the brain I guess.

              I'm not. Cain and Lincecum are a combined 15-2 with about a 2.60 ERA. Sandoval and Molina are both having decent years at the plate.

                Sabean will get a corner infielder with power if the Giants remain in contention for another month or so. There will be a few guys on the market with other teams falling out if their respective division races.

                Their pitching is playoff caliber for sure.

                  Can they trade for Hank Blalock? I ******* love that guy and he's a threat to hit a HR every time he's at the plate.

                      Haven't done one of these in a while, so here ya go.

                      Giants prospect stats for 6/15/09 (keep in mind that if you don't see a particular prospect listed, that's because he either did nothing that day, or didn't play)


                      Highlights from the Giants' farm, sometimes known as the Neal and Posey show. Tonight (a) Buster Posey reached base in all four trips to the plate, and (b) Thomas Neal homered again. Co-starring in their show were (c) John Bowker, who also homered; (d) Roger Kieschnick, who had two doubles and a single; and (e) Josh Mazzola, who had three hits. Unfortunately, no pitcher was quite highlight worthy.

                      Star-divide

                      AAA: Fresno defeated Sacramento 6-5

                      Fresno: LF John Bowker: 2 for 4, HR
                      Fresno: 3B Ryan Rohlinger: 1 for 3, 2B, HBP
                      Sacramento: 2B Eric Patterson: 2 for 4, 3B, 2B, BB, SB, CS

                      Fresno: RHP Ryan Sadowski: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K--1 WP
                      Fresno: RHP Osiris Matos: 1.0 IP, 2 K
                      Sacramento: RHP Jerome Williams: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 1 K--1 HR, 4 HB, 1 BK

                      Bowker was the only Grizzly with a multi-hit line, including his 9th HR. Rohlinger, one of three other Grizzlies to reach base twice, had his 21st double, which was the Grizzlies' other XBH. Patterson, who had 130 AB in the majors last year with the A's, had his 6th triple and 16th double to raise his AVG above .300. He now has a 26/6 SB/CS line.

                      After a dozen starts, Sadowski has still yet to allow more than 3 ER in a start this year. Tonight was not his best start, but he improved his W-L record to 5-2. Matos struck out two of the three batters he faced in a perfect 9th inning, raising his K/BB ratio above 3.00 for the season. Williams, the former Giant, continues to struggle to get his career back on track. After a 7.07 ERA in nine relief appearances, he made his first start of the season, yielding 6 ER against his former club that raised his ERA above 8.00.

                      AA: Connecticut had a scheduled off-day
                      (Its next scheduled off-day is June 22, the last of three consecutive Monday off-days.)

                      Defenders on Eastern League leaderboards in selected categories:
                      --Hitters:
                      AVG: Bond 12th, Martinez-Esteve 13th
                      OBP: Bond 5th
                      SLG: (none)
                      OPS: (none)
                      HR: (none)
                      BB: Bond 7th
                      AB: Pill 10th
                      SB: Bond 9th
                      --Pitchers:
                      ERA: Sosa 4th
                      WHIP: Sosa 11th
                      K: (none)
                      IP: (none)
                      BB: Foppert 6th
                      H: (none)
                      G: Paterson 11th, Otero 11th

                      A+: San Jose lost to Visalia 7-4

                      San Jose: LF Thomas Neal: 2 for 4, HR, SO
                      San Jose: C Buster Posey: 2 for 2, 2B, 2 BB
                      San Jose: RF Roger Kieschnick: 3 for 4, 2 2B, SO

                      San Jose: LHP Paul Oseguera: 6.1 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 7 K--2 HR, 1 HB
                      San Jose: RHP Dan Turpen: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 K--1 HR
                      San Jose: LHP Wilmin Rodriguez: 0.2 IP, 1 K

                      Neal and Posey continue to provide highlight-worthy lines on a nightly basis it seems. Tonight Neal had his 3rd HR in his last five games, his 5th HR of the month, and his 12th HR of the season. Meanwhile, Posey reached base in all four plate appearances, including his 19th double, further improving upon the .416 OBP with which he entered the night. He now has 225 AB so far this year and may have another 75 AB to log before a promotion. Kieschnick had slumped recently; but three hits tonight, including his 12th and 13th doubles, raised his season AVG back above .300 and his AVG for the month of June to .230.

                      In his second start for San Jose, Oseguera proved a little too hittable, allowing nine hits, including a three-run HR and a two-run HR. Turpen's ERA rose to a still impressive 1.40. Rodriguez continued his string of effective appearances. Over his last nine appearances, he has 4 H, 1 BB, 0 ER and 10 K in 10.0 IP

                      A-: Augusta lost to Charelston 11-4
                      (allowing eight runs over the final four innings)

                      Augusta: 1B-RF Josh Mazzola: 3 for 4
                      Augusta: 2B Vladimir Frias: 2 for 4, 2B

                      Augusta: RHP Mike Loree: 5.0+ IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 2 K--1 HB
                      Augusta: RHP Kyle Woodruff: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K--1 WP

                      Mazzola had three of the GreenJackets' nine hits, raising his AVG to .279. Frias's 4th double was the GreenJackets' only XBH, raising his SLG to an even .300 in 70 AB since his demotion to Augusta.

                      Loree allowed 3 ER through 5.0 IP and then failed to retire any of the three batters he facing in the 6th inning. His ERA rose to 4.33. Among the four GreenJackets' who appeared in the game, Woodruff is the only one who has an ERA of 5.75 or lower. His ERA is 2.45 after six appearances this year.

                      DSL: Giants lost to Red Sox 10-1

                      Dominican: CF Jesus Galindo: 2 for 2, 2B, 2 BB, E
                      Dominican: RHP Luiyin Perez: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K--1 HR, 2 HB

                      Galindo (18.9 y.o.) reached base four times, raising his OBP to .463 through his first eleven pro games. Perez (20.2 y.o.) made his fourth relief appearance of the season. He now has a 3.65 ERA through 12.1 IP.

                      Much thanks to Steve S at McCovey Chronicles for the stats and write-up.

                        always appreciated borat. whats the story with this thomas neal guy?
                        One rumor is that they will go after derek lee. sorry, no source, but I like this idea. Lee isnt going to hit a bunch of home runs at home, but no one really will. I think the cat has been out of that bag since the hr derby not so long ago. This is the same reason I like Nick Johnson. We just need a double-hitting rbi machine.
                        Another crappy start by Sanchez last night. He has REALLY struggled of late.

                        Comment


                        • #57
                          Yeah, Sanchez starts make me want to rip my eyes out. So brutal to watch.

                          I saw Neal live a couple of weeks ago and I was shocked at his size. He looks like a linebacker or running back. He's a beast. He wasn't really on my prospect radar, but he is now. I was really impressed by him and he's been tearing the cover off the ball in high A ball. Word is that Neal will be moving up to either AA or AAA after the minor-league all-star game which both are starting in. It's already been reported that Posey is going straight to AAA after he reaches 300 ABs.

                          Other thoughts on some of the San Jose Giants I saw:

                          Angel Villalona- This kid will be real good. He's so young and yet he's holding his own (again) this year. He really improved as the season went on last year at Low A and this year he's been hitting for power and average which I didn't expect from him at High A.

                          Nick Noonan - I was disappointed in him. His swing looked real loopy and he just seemed very meh. I had high hopes for him and there is still plenty of time, but I'm a little skeptical right now.

                          Conor Gillaspie - Has a great approach, but very little power. The comps to Bill Mueller are right on the money. He looks just like him at the plate.

                          Buster Posey - Stud. If he gets the promotion to AAA after his 300 abs in High A, he could be in SF by June of 2010, which will hold back his arbitration clock (same thing the Orioles did with Matt Wieters).

                          Roger Kieschnick - Good power and solid swing. K's a lot though. Kind of reminded me of a Mike Jacobs type player that can drive the ball with power, but you have to live with a lot of non-contact as well. He needs more seasoning, but the potential is there. I was actually pleasantly surprised with him.

                          I was bummed that Madison Bumgarner and Tim Alderson got promoted to AA before I got to see them. I was soooooo hoping to see those kids throw in person. But they were definitely too good for High A ball.
                          The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                            Another badass start for Tim Alderson, check it out!

                            Giants prospect stats for 6/15/09 (keep in mind that if you don't see a particular prospect listed, that's because he either did nothing that day, or didn't play)

                            The top highlight on the Giants' farm yesterday was (a) Tim Alderson allowing just four baserunners in 7.0 shutout IP. Other highlights include (b) Garrett Broshuis also facing just four batters over the minimum in his 7.0 shutout IP, (c,d) Kevin Frandsen and Tyler Graham both homering while reaching base three times, (e) Kyle Nicholson allowing just 1 ER in 7.0 IP, and (f) Vladimir Frias reaching base in all four plate appearances.

                            AAA: Fresno lost to Sacramento 8-7 (10 innings)
                            (with both teams scoring in the 8th and 9th innings)

                            Fresno: 2B Kevin Frandsen: 2 for 4, HR, BB
                            Fresno: LF John Bowker: 1 for 4, HR, BB
                            Fresno: DH Joe Borchard: 2 for 4, HR, BB, SO
                            Sacramento: RF Travis Buck: 3 for 4, 2B, BB, SO

                            Fresno: RHP Ramon Ortiz: 5.0 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K--1 HR
                            Fresno: LHP Alex Hinshaw: 0.2 IP
                            Sacramento: RHP Henry Rodriguez: 3.0 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 4 K

                            Three different Grizzlies homered--Bowker for his 10th HR, Frandsen for his 6th HR, and Borchard for his 5th HR. They also each drew a walk. Frandsen and Borchard also had the Grizzlies' only two multi-hit lines, as they improved their AVGs to .333 and .263. The A's' Buck, playing his sixth PCL game this year, had three hits and a walk. He has a .478 OBP with Sacramento after just a .301 OBP in 85 in the majors previously this year.

                            In his third start, Ortiz allowed a season-high 8 H. He also allowed 3 ER, but his ERA remains under 3.00. Hinshaw retired both batters he faced in the 10th inning but did allow an inherited runner to score the decisive run when the first batter had a sac fly. Rodriguez, whom BA ranked as the A's' #14 prospect to begin the year, made his tenth appearance of the season. So far he has impressive peripheral stats, with the strikeout rate in particular, with 11 H, 8 BB, and 30 K in 16.2 IP.

                            AA: Connecticut defeated Trenton 4-0
                            (after adding three insurance runs in the 8th inning)

                            Connecticut: 2B Brock Bond: 2 for 4
                            Connecticut: 1B Brett Pill: 3 for 4
                            Connecticut: RF Mike Mooney: 2 for 4, 2 SO, SB

                            Connecticut: RHP Tim Alderson: 7.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
                            Connecticut: LHP Ben Snyder: 2.0 IP, 2 BB
                            Trenton: RHP Zach McAllister: 7.1 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 8 K

                            Pill continues to swing a hot bat, although this was his first multi-hit line in ten days. He has an AVG above .320 since the start of May. His OPS for the season remains just under .800. Bond and Mooney also had multi-hit lines, improving their AVGs to .303 and .239.

                            Alderson had perhaps his best start since his upper minors debut when he did not allow a hit in 6.2 IP. This was the second time in seven starts for the Defenders that he has pitched at least seven full innings. The 2 BB did double his total as a Defender. Since joining Connecticut, his stat line now reads 34 H, 4 BB, and 34 K in 39.2 IP with a 1.82 ERA. In relief, Snyder finished the shutout facing just one batter over the minimum in two innings. He allowed a couple walks but got his ERA back below 2.00. McAllister, whom BA ranked as the Yankees' #6 prospect, had a fine start, allowing just one run through seven innings. Even with three runs in the 8th inning, his ERA remains just 1.81. The 21-year-old now has 63 H, 20 BB, and 57 K in 74.2 IP over his dozen starts.

                            A+: San Jose defeated Visalia 7-0

                            San Jose: DH Tyler Graham: 2 for 4, HR, BB, 2 SO, CS
                            San Jose: LF Thomas Neal: 3 for 5
                            San Jose: C Buster Posey: 2 for 4, BB, SB
                            San Jose: RF Roger Kieschnick: 1 for 4, HR
                            San Jose: 1B David Maroul: 3 for 4, 2 2B

                            San Jose: RHP Garrett Broshuis: 7.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K--1 HB
                            San Jose: LHP Dan Runzler: 1.0 IP, 1 K
                            San Jose: RHP Steven Edlefsen: 1.0 IP, 1 BB, 2 K

                            Graham led off the bottom of the 1st inning with his 5th HR. In the 6th inning, Kieschnick added his 10th HR. In the continuing "Neal and Posey show," they both reached base three times. Neal and Maroul each had three hits, accounting for half of the Giants' dozen hits and raising their respective AVGs to .352 and .286.

                            Broshuis had his four straight start pitching at least six full innings but his first start without allowing an earned run. In his six starts, he now 31 H, 8 BB and 21 K in 36.0 IP with a 3.00 ERA. Runzler and Edlefsen completed the shutout striking out three of the eight batters they faced.

                            A-: Augusta defeated Charleston 3-2
                            (scoring a run in the bottom of the 9th inning)

                            Augusta: CF Dom Duggan: 3 for 5, 3B, SO
                            Augusta: 2B Vladimir Frias: 3 for 3, 3B, BB, E

                            Augusta: RHP Kyle Nicholson: 7.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
                            Augusta: RHP Edwin Quirarte: 1.0 IP, 1 BB, 1 K
                            Charleston: BHP Pat Venditte: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 K

                            Duggan and Frias each had three hits, including Duggan's 4th triple and Frias's 2nd triple. They accounted for half of the GreenJackets' dozen hits, but both still have AVGs below .250.

                            Nicholson made another extended start. He had pitched at least seven full innings in eight of his last nine starts. With just 4 H in 7.0 IP in each of his two starts, his H/IP ratio is now below 1.00 (BAA of .261). Quirarte pitched a scoreless 9th inning in his third SAL appearance. Venditte has become somewhat infamous for his ability to pitch with either arm. He's had such a good season that he was named to the SAL all-star game. He suffered his second loss of the season last night, but his ERA remains below 1.00.

                            Dominican: LF Eduardo Lopez: 1 for 3, 2B, BB
                            Dominican: RHP Miguel Ferrer: 7.0 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 10 K

                            Batting cleanup, Lopez (18.3 y.o.) had his first XBH in nearly two weeks. In his first pro season, he is hitting .183/.300/.267 through his first 60 AB. Making his third start of the season, Ferrer (18.10 y.o.) had an outstanding start. He now has 13 H, 0 BB, 4 ER, and 16 K in 17.0 IP.

                            The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                              Downs was brought up to be the every day 2nd baseman. We'll see how that turns out. I dont care who does well, I just want someone to succeed in that spot.
