"Thought experiment. Could the Giants pitchers defeat the Giants hitters? Mind you the hitters have to pitch, and the pitchers have to field all positions."
FACT: Olu and I are kind of baseball geeks. The kind that might think about this.
FACT: The pitchers totally win. Check out the pitchers' lineup:
2B R Ramirez .213
SS S Casilla .238
1B M Cain .233
RF M Bumgarner .268
CF R Vogelsong .226
C G Mota .273
LF J Sanchez .205
3B B Wilson .224
P T Lincecum .224
Are you shitting me? How is that any worse than the actual lineup they're throwing out there today? PITCHERS TOTALLY SMOKE THE POSITION PLAYERS.
Who's gonna pitch for the Fieldies? Schierholtz, I guess. We know he has a cannon. But even an 80 mph fastball is only a little bit better than batting practice. Can you see Nate turning and watching a J-San knock sail over the left field wall? YOU THINK NATE CAN THROW A SLIDER? Fuck that shit.
I would totally pay to see this, too.
