Brewers 7, Giants 2: Thanks to Jean Machi for providing comic relief during miserable series

There’s nothing good to blog about after the Giants got swept by the Brewers in a series in which Buster Posey continues to struggle, Barry Zito got lit up for the first time in a long time , and Matt Cain got lit up AGAIN.

So there was only thing that Giants fans could smile about from the three-game in Milwaukee and it came compliments of Jean Machi.

During Tuesday’s CSN Bay Area broadcast, announcers Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow were talking about a Giants transaction that day which brought reliever Jean Machi from Triple-A Fresno to fill the roster spot of Jeremy Affeldt, who went on the DL.

So the camera naturally cut to Machi in the bullpen, sitting next to Jose Mijares. And we got this:

Hilarious. And we thank Twitter handle @carmenview for providing the GIF. And it’s a GIF that permeated the internet on Tuesday.

And lingered into Wednesday.

So when Machi actually got into the game Wednesday, it set off a wildfire of flatulence tweets on Twitter.

And MoreSplashHits will admit that we got into the act.

Here are our Machi tweets @Moresplashhits on Wednesday

“#SFGiants call on Jean Machi, because they seek some relief.”

“In case you were wondering, Machi wasn’t praying behind the mound there.” (Machi squatted down behind the mound after making his warm-up pitches)

“When the catcher visits mound to talk to Jean Machi, the catcher covers his face with his glove.”

“Krukow after that last pitch from Machi ‘That was nasty’ and he wasn’t talking about the pitch.”

“When Jean Machi is pitching, #SFGiants infielders refuse to play in.”

“Giants lose to Brewers. Didn’t matter. With Jean Machi now on team, it wasn’t going to be a happy flight anyway.”
