…. Bounce back

Ever watch your favorite horror movie and just laugh at how unstoppable, how completely un-killable your typical monster can be? That is the 2004, Barry Bonds-led SF Giants.

This team comes back. And comes back. Again and again and again. Jim Tracy says Beltre is the MVP?!? Please.

When Tracy pitches to Bonds, in any situation that matters, as consistently as everyone pitches to Beltre, then Adrian can win the MVP award. Meanwhile, when the Dodgers walk Bonds five times in the game that may or may not decide the entire season; and Adrian Beltre gets four at-bats, it’s fairly obvious who is the most dangerous and valuable player on the diamond.

The Giants, in spite of Bonds’ five walks today, beat the Dodgers 9-5. Combined with the Mets improbable, two-outs in the ninth inning, game-tying, three-run home run…. with a follow-up, two-outs, game-winning, solo home run in the 11th inning win over the Cubs, the Giants are off the iron lung machine once again. Damn.
