one thing that is undisputed about this team

Whose fault is that? Other teams can hit after extended breaks!

One common denominator through all of this: Mike Dusty Baker Scioscia.

If it wasn't for Baker being the Giants manager, we would still have zero WS tities. What do you expect from two Lamoutha protégés?

The only thing I blame Scioscia for is sticking with Hamilton after he was so bad on Thursday.  

 

 

The rest of it is just bad hitting by the Angels.  When they play like this you know they're going to lose.  We lost both games in the 11th but those games should have been over long before the 11th.  Eventually somebody will score a run and you know it's not going to be the Angels.  It's painful to watch.

 

These KC Royals look more like the 2002 Angels than we do.

I think you mean Spiezio

There isn't a manager in baseball that wouldn't play Hamilton over Navarro or Cowgill. If you want to bitch than complain about Calhoun bunting in game 1. That is the only move that didn't make sense and fair for criticism.

I got one manager for you. His first name and last name start with B and he has 2 championships in the last 4 years.

I think it is Don Baylor's department to get the players prepared for the game offensively.

Sure they would, if the circumstances warranted it.

You're either blind or insane if you think playing Hamilton is the right move. In fact, he shouldn't have even been on the postseason roster.

At most Hamilton should have started game 1 at DH with Cowgill playing left field and Cron replacing Hamilton when appropriate as a pinch hitter.

Bingo.  I've been plenty critical of Scioscia in the past (and have often called for him to be replaced, even if it's only to get a fresh face in the dugout) and he has made a few bad decisions so far in the ALDS, but the first two losses fall squarely on the hitters.  In the first game, they had RISP in the seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth innings - all it would have taken was one hit in any of those inning and the game was over.  That's not Scioscia's fault.  In the second game, once again there were multiple innings with RISP that were choked away.  Once again, that's on the hitters.
