I am guessing he has heard it a lot. And the fact that the Giants were down 5-1 and came back thanks in part to Joe Panik tripling and eventually scoring the game winning run would give me license to say “the Giants didn’t PANIK!”
But that just seems so hacky.
Hey, Michael Morse delivered big time. He sent a MORSE CODE!
(Let’s just be happy John Sterling isn’t calling Giants games so we can avoid these puns.)
Either way, the Giants are back in a playoff position.
Meanwhile the A’s wished they could turn back the clock to when they were actually winning games!
Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
A’S DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
The A’s losing streak stretched to 4 games and they fell into a first place tie with the Angels after being up be as many as 6 games. The Braves snuck by, 4-3. TEETH GRINDER
45 Dodged Bullets 39 Teeth Grinders
GIANTS DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
The Giants were in an early 5-1 hole. But big hits by Michael Morse and Joe Panik and a go ahead hit by Gregor Blanco gave them a 6-5 win over Philadelphia. DODGED BULLET
45 Dodged Bullets 42 Teeth Grinders
RED SOX DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
The Astros took an early 5-1 lead. But David Ortiz homered twice (including career blast number 400) and drove in 6, leading the Sox to a 10-7 win. DODGED BULLET
41 Dodged Bullets 49 Teeth Grinders
Jon Lester takes the hill for the A’s. They need a win from him. This is why they traded for him.
