Stealing 3rd with our best hitter up who is a lefty was not smart

There was nothing wrong with him trying to steal 3rd there, especially with 1 out and Glasnow totally ignoring him. If he just runs he takes 3rd standing up. The problem was him trying to take it like a hesitant timid 6th grader playing little league ball.

Well, there's an inning that not only tied it up but could pay dividends going forward.

“There's a fine line between being confident and cocky, or overconfident. This is an extremely humbling game. But if you don't believe in yourself, no one else is going to believe in you.”

If you can ever make the next base standing up then you should always go. In general, if you are going to steal 3rd on a close play don't go with a lefty batting. When he hesitated he should have gone back. He should have know a hesitation + lefty batter = do not go. Where is all of that veteran grit when we need it

With 1 out I get it, you want to get there for the sac fly or slow roller. It is what it is, it happens. Frustrating with how the P was struggling and it might have cost us, but we got the one run they were essentially playing for anyway. With this pitch count for Glasnow you have to win this game. Hopefully Chase settles in and cruises to 6 innings 2 runs max

Interesting strategy here to throw McCutchen fastballs down the middle...

I was looking at this old game, now in the news these days. The 1916 Giant's tie that separates their 12 and 14 game winning streaks, giving them a 26* game winning streak I guess.

It was the second game of a doubleheader, called in the 8th, must have been for darkness. Only 18 players played in the entire game, I wonder the last time that actually happened? Giants only run came from a Benny "the Ty Cobb of the Federal League" Kauff HR, and the Pirates only run came from Honus Wagner in his second last season. The Pirates pitcher was WI native Burleigh Grimes, the last player to throw a spit ball. The other HOFer in the game, Max Carey, had 3 hits. The Giants featured slugger DAve Robertson hitting 3rd, who would lead the NL in HRs this season and the next, with a total of 12 each year.

Since Robertson in 1917 there have only been 4 other Giants (NY or SF) to lead the league in HRs in back to back season, can you name them?

Yeah, but this month doesn't count. Only May, June, and August count.

Those don't count as RBI's for Thames because his OPS is irrelevant.

And they weren't in scoring position? [smile]

Happy to see it pop up on my phone at dinner!

Of course Counsel says they can make the playoffs and do well in the playoffs. Is he going to say we're not going to make the playoffs and will get swept if by some miracle we do make it?

The reason I asked is because Bonds is actually not an answer so this was a sneaky question. Mays and McCovey are correct. The other 2 are in the HOF

While Glasnow has done it for more seasons, Freddie Peralta's 2017 looks a lot like what Glasnow has done in the minors.
