What the Hell?

On the Murph and Mac show (Monday-Friday,KNBR 680AM,5am-9am) Pauly Mac has this incredible sound board with tracks from movies, interviews, and all things not necessarily sports that the two weave into the fabric of their topic of the day conversation. And I'm here to say, Charles Grodin's, "What the hell?" is in reference to the 2012 San Francisco Giants' defense.

Somewhere in Fresno, is Freddy Sanchez hearing the Curtis Mayfield tune, "Freddie's Dead"?  You remember that song don't ya? The Starsky and Hutch type music when those two uncaped crusaders of the 70s were racing around town, running red lights in hot pursuit of a lead given to them by Huggy Bear.

We're all built up with progress
But sometimes I must confess
We can deal with rockets and dreams
But reality, what does it mean
Ain't nothing said
Cause Freddie's dead...

It's hard to understand
there was love in this land
(called AT&T Park
 when Freddy came to bat there was a chant!)

Until Freddy Sanchez returns to the Giants lineup there will be a hole in their defense.  If Freddy's arm is dead then all the love will go the opponents' way because you have got to catch the damn ball!

(thanks to Curtis Mayfield for inspiring this Freddy rant.)
