Good morning, baseball fans!
The San Francisco Giants are on a roll and that’s honestly a lot more fun than when they’re losing a bunch of games. So, since today is a day off, let’s talk about a few things that normally wouldn’t warrant a post of their own, but are good for a catch-all round-up post.
First, for anyone who enjoys professional athletes engaging in a slight bit of pettiness online, Logan Webb retweeted this last night:
The Marlins have scored EIGHT runs in the 9th inning to take an 11-3 lead!— Ben Verlander (@BenVerlander) May 11, 2022
Remember earlier in the year when Dave Martinez was pissed the other team was still trying when up 7
This is, of course, referring to the Giants’ 7-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on April 22nd. Martinez, manager for the Nationals, had some man yells at clouds vibes after that game, saying essentially that it is disrespectful and uncalled for for teams to score runs in the ninth if they have a lead. Wonder what he thinks about teams that are tied going into the ninth? Are they allowed to score eight runs? Who can keep up with the unwritten rules these days.
Anyway, our final silliness, the Giants seem intent on dividing this nation, both on the field by violating the unwritten rules, and off the field by asking the tough questions. No, not “what is the meaning of life?” more like “is a hot dog a sandwich?”
Giants manager Gabe Kapler did just that yesterday when discussing Mustache May, saying that he felt that players with full beards were also participating in Mustache May, indicating that he believed a full beard with a little extra mustache counts.
If you have a full beard, do you also have a mustache? Kap has some thoughts pic.twitter.com/YWlZKP3tlm— SF Giants on NBCS (@NBCSGiants) May 11, 2022
I am in no way a facial hair expert, but this was, apparently, a controversial take. I’ll let those with a little more hair in the game argue in the comments.
No game today, the Giants kick off a six game road trip in St. Louis tomorrow to face off against the Cardinals once more, before heading to
Hell, I mean Coors Field on Monday.
