Cape Coupler overturns unwritten baseball rules in Giants blowout victory

SAN FRANCISCO – It should come as no surprise when San Diego Patrice expressed their displeasure at Steven Duger’s second-place finish with a nine-run lead on Tuesday night or when they were openly hostile to Mauricio Duane. In the sixth inning, his team scored nine more runs. That’s always been the case in the game of baseball.

But the giants at least believe it is time for change for them.

After beating Peters 13-2, Giants manager Cape Coupler made it clear that his team would not give up gas this season, regardless of a game’s score or “unwritten rules”. The Clubhouse reaction was supportive, with additional interest from the Giants players about how it would play out.

It is clear that giants have talked about how others see what they are doing. They expect other teams to go crazy. They know that someone in orange and black can throw the ball fast to the ribs. But Coupler said on Tuesday that he would try again and again to win every series, eventually the division and so on.

“We were not trying to raise the score for anyone. We were not trying to embarrass anyone. We were not trying to insult the game,” Coupler said. “I’m fully aware of what’s unwritten rules. We think they do not apply here. We think it’s very important for us to try to win the series and sometimes win beyond the series. That’s often means trying to see as many remedies as possible and making as few out as possible.”

Coupler said the last part was the Giants’ strategy all the time. He said it was “a tactic that is totally insensitive to us”, but it was good luck to explain it to Patrice.

In a 10-1 game, Tucker’s stolen ground led to an ugly exchange between Giants coach Anton Richardson and Patrice coach Mike Shield. Four innings later, after hitting the ball to the lead off singles in the 11-2 game, he saw Dupan from the duckout rail.

Patres manager Bob Melvin yelled at the Giants duckout, saying senior San Diego first paceman Eric Hosmer approached Dupan and then sent word that Hosmer had done the wrong thing.

“I told him for sure how I felt and how we felt about it,” Hosmer told reporters. “He said it was a sign given to him by their staff. I told him you had to be a little smarter in that situation. You’re playing professional ball for a good time. Obviously, if you’re in this position, you should be smarter than that.”

The giants would argue that this is brilliant. Coupler has repeatedly pointed out that the goal is not to win a game, but to win a series, and sometimes to leave the opposing manager with fewer new weapons. He will have no problem with an opponent who will be faltering when the Giants are out, but as someone who has played 12 MLB seasons for six different teams, he knows the game is not like that.

The Giants have been talking about changing it for two years. This season, they decided to implement it. Players were told in the spring that the team would be more aggressive, even when throwing opponents.

“This is how we decided to move forward,” Coupler said.

As with everything related to “unwritten rules” there are shades of gray. The Giants Clubhouse has senior players who always watch the game in the traditional way, and Patrace is definitely the one who likes Coupler’s style.

San Diego’s top scorer, Fernando Toddys Jr., led the Texas Rangers to a 3-0 lead in the eighth inning in the eighth inning two seasons ago. Dadis scored a Grand Slam, and the Rangers immediately threw a warning pitch behind Manny Machado’s back.

There will be no retaliation on Tuesday, but the teams will meet 17 more times this season, and the Joints may be the exception to swipe a bag with a big lead. The game is changing, but it is still full of managers, coaches and stars who believe they have always passed.

“We know they’m not going to be happy, and that’s right. “One common thing you can see in this clubhouse throughout the year is that everyone has their backs to each other. We are proud to play for each other, to be proud of being on each other’s team, and whatever. [opponents] They decide to move forward, they decide to do. We are ready for that. ”

Kobe said the Giants will adjust if needed, but for now, it’s at full speed.

Giants outfielder Joke Pederson admits it’s weird, but points out its flaws in the old way, comparing some unwritten rules to the kind of non – competitive behavior one would find in an NBA All-Star Game or NFL Pro Bowl.

Peterson hit home-of-position player Will Myers in the eighth inning, and he said Myers wanted to attack him. In the box, Peterson wanted to hit Homer as always.

“It makes sense to continue competing until the game is over,” Federson said.

Petersen’s Homer and Wilmer Flores’ other gave the Giants 13 runs. Paradoxically, on a night when so much play took place, no one came after the Dugger theft or the Dupun ball. First with DuPont, Dinelson Lamet knocked out the next three Giants.

DuPont returned to the Giants duckout and saw the coupler waiting for him. Although their relationship appeared serious, Coupler said his message was “excellent work”.

“Base should try to get hit. Full 100 percent support,” he said of DuPont. “The pitchers are trying to get Mauricio out; Mauricio is trying to get to the bottom. Baseball’s goal is not to get out.”
