Giles punched  himself in the face on the way out too 

 

Does that punch out count towards K/9?

Stros fan here.  He couldn't get anything on that punch.  I'm happy to do it for him next time.

 

All kidding aside, it's kind of sad to see.  He's obv got issues.

Kind of a random thought but what’s the chances Strickland keeps the closer gig when Melancon comes back in a month or so. Strickland has been nothing but nasty.

Dude, like only save opportunities are even considered or looked at..... I'm sure Bannister had already hit the showers.  It's known..... :rolleyes:  The pen's a mess so I doubt it will affect his job security but when he has a bad night, he unravels so completely.

 

 

True.

 

I also don't think he had any business being used tonight after they worked him so hard last weekend.   He is a guy coming off arm issues.

And then literally punched himself in the face as he walked off the field

 

Kind of wish he'd knocked himself out. 

 

Is that mean?

This is purely my opinion -

 

If Strickland keeps pitching like he has there's no way I'd pull him from the role in season.

Speaking of Melancon, watching the Giants game and Amy G just mentioned that he is upping his rehab and going to throw a light bullpen session Saturday from a mound.

Well... Strickland is about to go in a non save op, top 9th 2-2, what could go wrong??

Jim Johnson is warming up for the save opp.

 

LAA broadcasters also mentioned that LAA wants Cam to get his velocity up.

Yep, that's about right.  Strickland serves up a solo shot to Hosmer.

Looks like Scioscia wanted Alvarez in for the lefties and Jim Uohnson when the righty came up...
