Note to Giants announcers: In the future, please do not use the term pirouette to describe anything that Madison Bumgarner does EVER again. Thank you.
MadBum's acrobatic play
CHC@SF: MadBum gets out at first with a pirouette
The mental image of MadBum in a tu-tu due to the use of the said term "pirouette" combined with seeing my life, as personified by the Giants season, flash before my eyes as I imagined Bumgarner coming down in a crumpled heap as Duffy did a night or two ago, produced a mental cluster-bomb of epic proportions. I literally threw up in my mouth watching that. We'll have no more of that, thank you very much.
Also, Note to Brandon Belt: Make a better throw for Pete's sake. Lead him to the bag. Throw where he's going to be, not where he is. You looked like one of those Little League kids on that throw. Kudos on the snag though.
Sure looks like this Tomlinson kid is making it easier on the Giants to activate Joe Panik as planned on September 1st and then promptly designate him for assignment, He probably has options left.
