cheap uggs uk Angel Pagan iffy to avoid disabled list
SAN FRANCISCO The Giants are wearing pink accented jerseys for Mother’s Day as they try to take three of four from the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.
Buster Posey is starting one day after he caught all 13 innings in Saturday’s walk off victory. Posey will rest and Trevor Brown will catch Jake Peavy on Monday against the Toronto Blue Jays, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.
Posey “only” caught 181 pitches in Saturday’s long game an average of 14 pitches per inning. Compare that to the rough series opener Thursday, when Posey had caught 124 pitches by the fifth inning.
“He wants to go today,” Bochy said.
After what Jeff Samardzija said about Posey in Cincinnati, it’s clear the starting pitcher prefers to have his frontline catcher behind the plate, too.
As for the rest of the lineup, Denard Span is getting a routine day off. Angel Pagan, who hasn’t played since May 1, did agility drills and his hamstring continues to improve. But he’s not ready to return.
The Giants will place him on the DL retroactive to May 1 if Pagan can’t play against the Blue Jays. Can he avoid the DL?
“I think he can,” Bochy said. “I’m not sure he will.”
the Giants are hitting, and they have coverage in the outfield. As well as Pagan was playing, the Giants have been willing to wait on him before putting him on the shelf for the full 15 days.
If Pagan goes on the DL, then outfielder Jarrett Parker would be the choice to replace him. The only other position player on the 40 man roster is Andrew Susac, who is on the AAA DL with a sore shoulder. Parker has been swinging well of late.
Updates on the flexor tendon boys: Right hander George Kontos is pitching an inning in a rehab assignment for Sacramento later Sunday, and Sergio Romo played catch on the field. Romo will throw a light ‘pen off a mound Monday, Bochy said.
Finally, before we get to the lineups, Madison Bumgarner very much enjoyed watching the replay of Bartolo Colon’s home run.
“How far d’it go?” Bumgarner said. “I’m not going to break down his swing. Shows what happens when you put the barrel on the baseball. It doesn’t matter what you do before or after. That’s the truth.” has documented the most eventful era in San Francisco Giants baseball history, having covered the team since 2004 for three major media outlets including the San Jose Mercury News and the Oakland Tribune. Baggarly’s other notable life accomplishments include running as the Bratwurst in the Milwaukee Sausage Race and becoming a three time Jeopardy!
Success rate on steals of 3B with a runner on 2B and 1 out last season was 76%. You increase your odds of scoring by 66% by successfully stealing 3B from 2B with one out.
The odds of not scoring by staying at 2B is 60%. The odds of not scoring by trying to steal 3B is 58% 24% chance of getting caught and 34% of not scoring if successful. I think it a wash. Success rate on steals off Butler has been average only 15 attempts and 1 for 2 on steal attempts of 3B.
