Game Scores

Game Score. Start with 50 points. Add 1 point for each out recorded, (3 points per inning). Add 2 points for each inning completed after the 4th. Add 1 point for each strikeout. Subtract 2 points for each hit allowed. Subtract 4 points for each earned run allowed. Subtract 2 points for each unearned run allowed. Subtract 1 point for each walk.

Thursday: JMaine 52, JSanchez 37
Friday: TLincecum 37, LHernandez 35
Saturday: JSantana 42, RJohnson 15

For perspective, the best "Game Score" by a Giant this year is 85--Tim's unlucky home start in April against AZ where he threw 8 scoreless and struck out 13. That's the 5th highest in the league so far. The NYMs have tagged us for 42 hits, 13 walks and 24 runs, with the starters accounting for 30 of those hits, but only 6 of those walks, and 16 earned runs. Let's hope Matt Cain has a big game tonight--we need it.

I just finished watching "Bang The Drum Slowly"(1973) for the first time in many years. I liked it less than I expected to. As a sports film it was so-so. As a look at the sub-culture of baseball players, it was okay. It's most notable for being Deniro's first major role, but the character is just not likable. The best character is the manager, played by Vincent Gardenia, and he in fact got an Oscar nomination for this.
What amused me the most is that there's a star pitcher (Michael Moriarty) negotiating a contract and he asks for $125,000! And the owners find this outrageous! And he has to sell insurance as a side job to supplement his income.
