GIANTS 10 - MARLINS 9
Wow where to begin?
The list does have a lot of great players and hall of famers. Guys like Richie Ashburn, Johnny Mize, Ichiro Suzuki, Jackie Robinson, and Fred Lynn. But it is also populated by guys who you would be hard pressed to even name what teams they played for: Goldie Rapp, Joe McEwing, Chico Carrasquel, Taft Wright, and Danny Litwhiler.
So what does it all mean? Well not much other than you can never tell what a guy is going to amount to from their rookie season. Just ask Joe McEwing.
I have largely avoided writing about last night's game because it was so frustrating. Sure it was a win but it was an ugly win. After an early 9-2 lead, the Giants pitching staff wound up letting this game go to extra innings. now the Giants did win the game so it's not all bad but it sure is hard to watch a 7 run lead evaporate.
As hard to take from a pitching standpoint, it was equally satisfying from an offensive standpoint. Torres, Huff, Uribe, Rowand, and Renteria all had multi-hit games.
