Problem with watching Giants games, besides the fact this season is starting to have that things-about-to-get-really-ugly-feeling, is that half the time Bonds comes up in the later innings, the same thing always happens. Manager comes out and makes a brilliant strategic move of pulling the pitcher to bring in a lefty (because Bonds supposedly doesn't hit lefty's as well, which doesn't seem true cause he seems to hit everyone). Pitching change always means a break, so we go to commercial. Then the lefty comes in, faces Bonds, and.....walks him. Manager goes back out, thinks the pitcher's done what he's supposed to do, and brings in another righty. Another pitching change and we go to commercial.
All that manuevering, strategizing and time wasting just so some lefty can go in and do the same thing a righty could of done. Yawn.
