This is Jose's third Golden Sombrero of the season but the first since the inception of Off Base and first as a Giant. Guillen has been everything the Royals thought he would be after they traded him to the Giants for a Whole Foods gift card. Guillen is hitting .304/.350/.375 with a home run and 15K/2BB in 60 plate appearances with the Giants. But he does seem to have a low stuff-thrown/confrontation ratio so far hovering around a 0.8 ST/C.
Guillen went 0-4 with 4 strikeouts yesterday while
Top 1st: Guillen struck out looking against Ted Lilly.
Top 4th: Guillen struck out looking against Lilly again. Lily had him mesmerized by his calm presence on the mound. Guillen demands a violent delivery!
Top 7th: Guillen struck out looking against Lilly for the MTD Hat Trick. He struck out 3 times, the same way, against the same pitcher. Why isn't this catching on?
Top 9th: Guillen struck out swinging against Jonathan Broxton.
