Go Giants!

Posted in Uncategorized by dirtnrocksnomo on October 9, 2012

With the club backed against the wall and everything at stake I can’t imagine a better candidate to start Game 3.

    It wasn’t the same situation as 2010 when he relieved Dirttty but what was similar was how Affeldt totally quieted everything down. Really not a peep…
    About Chapman again- if Dusty was thinking about tomorrow, that’s not something you do in the playoffs.

    Holy shit. Didn’t say it here but texted Magnus, Dennis, Ted, and local folks the following: WE SCORE WE WIN. I “didn’t stop believin’ ” that. You know, the giants may not win this series but that game brought the ol’ mojo back. We seem to thrive on the #torture. At least we hold our heads high, very high. And just think, they fecking strike out 16 of our fecking hitters and fecking lose?! How’s that fecking feel, Cincy? Sleep on that. It’s like you fecking face the fecking fire fecking squad and fecking come out fecking whistling. Amen to that, Flappers!

    Latos threw fifty-some pitches Saturday night. And really, I don’t give a fuck who they throw. They can throw the fucking kitchen sink as far as I am concerned.

    I again have a good feeling about tomorrow.

    One day, one game at a time. That is my new mantra.

    Catch ya on the flip-side Flappers.

    It is a very fucking good day to be a Giant fan!

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on October 9, 2012 at 7:26 pm

      That’s my take; can’t take it beyonfd that one game. Wish we could play right now.

    POSTSCRIPT: Although I deem it foolishly risky, I say the whole bit of Pence staying in the game, obviously w/ Bochy’s blessing, was a bit of testosterone-oozing chest thumping, as if to say, “Brandon Phillips, you stayed in after your calf injury? Easy. We’ll show you up on that one.” [I'd use poker terms but would screw it up.]

    Did I not say I was going to change the momentum????? Go Giants…I was at a bar and I said to the bartender as the game went to the top of the 9th, “I am drinking White Russians till the Giants win!”

    Everyone better be drinking White Russians by 1 pm west coast time tomorrow….

  6. gianthead said, on October 9, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Zito Alien is winning tomorrow! Mark it down!

  7. chipower9 said, on October 9, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    I’m down with White Russians. That was “The Dude’s” drink of choice.

    • gianthead said, on October 9, 2012 at 7:42 pm

      Damn straight! I will be on the golf course at 9 am east coast and teh White Russians will be flowing!!

    The Giants tweeted this:
    SERGIO ROMO: We play for the guy next to us, not for ourselves, the greater good. #SFGiants #OrangeOctober

    Just got back from my run a few minutes ago. I’ve said I don’t hate anything . . . except one thing – running. However, the Giants winning made it feel like I was running on a pink cloud. Damn, biggest win of the year . . . so far. ;-)

    Goodnight all.

    • Flavor said, on October 9, 2012 at 8:22 pm

      night twin. sleep well.

  11. blade3colorado said, on October 9, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    Night Twin. Take care.

  12. Flavor said, on October 9, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    I did get a text from Pawlie at 5:54pm. It said “we score we win”
    no punctuation necessary.
    I was coaching soccer w/o my assistant coach and so I was busy managing what felt like 40 kids at the time I got the text.
    And it wasn’t a text that sounded promising since the last time I checked it was 1-1 in the 7th……
    So hoping we score (and win) wasn’t something I was interested in checking immediately on my phone.
    Then I got a call from Pawlie, still couldn’t take it, and was regaled with a typical (for Pawlie) “walking the dog, post win” call. And the best part of the call was the end of it. Pawlie’s daughter’s soccer team tied their game 2-2–and that was the victory of the year, if you ask me (and you wouldn’t have to ask me if you knew how their season was going).
    And just when you’re wondering why I’m talking about Adrianna’s tie soccer game it’s because that tie was a huge victory.
    And huge victories are tough to come by….
    That’s why they’re huge.
    And now I’m asking for something nearly as huge: A shutdown game tomorrow from Barry Zito. That would be almost as huge.
    Maybe huge(er)…..
    I’ll leave you all with San Diggity Dawg’s post that I started with this morning:

    “SanDawg said, on October 8, 2012 at 8:27 pm (Edit)
    Snarkk–I like your point about Zito in today’s thread. Zits taking the mound in Game 4 with a chance to send the darn thing to Sudden Death would be such a good story, that I can’t imagine it not coming to pass. If he delivered on that stage, I would be finally ready to grant him total absolution for past sins. An “Etch-a-Sketch” moment if there ever was one!”

    “Make it so, #1″. (star Trek New Gen reference. Maybe I should have said “Make it so, #5″?)

      very moved by this; will copy and paste as a possible add to my MS of new book in progress

    G’night, girls. FerretHead, too [insert gay smiley].

      Sleep well my man.
      And tell that fucking dog he doesn’t know how good he’s got it…. :)

    this just totally sets up the offense to come up BIG tomorrow, give barry room to work and he’ll do his magic. mark it down: the offense comes up big tomorrow.

  15. Bozo said, on October 9, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Hey now. This thread ain’t over until ted says it is.
    Cheers all, I’m thinking another win tomorrow would be very, very good.

  16. tedspe said, on October 9, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Yup, pawlie called it with a text. Very simple and I quote:
    “We score. We win”
    How true it was. Good call, my friend.
    But…but…I’ve never been in the doomer area but, frankly, I didn’t like this win. Don’t get me wrong. I’ll fucking take it. But I didn’t like it. Looked to me that the Giants, otherwise known as The Walking Dead offensively, got lucky with a few Reds’ mistakes. Not exactly the “Road to the World Series”

    • Flavor said, on October 9, 2012 at 9:17 pm

      Totally agree. But it bought us a date with Zito tomorrow– and you know how that shit goes. Bros before hoes. And that doesn’t make a lick o’ sense.
      Tomorrow might not either.
      I’m just excited to watch the game

      • tedspe said, on October 9, 2012 at 9:27 pm

        Bros before hoes.
        Very…well…put

  17. tedspe said, on October 9, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    On the other hand, when you’re on the road to anything, might as well get all Bingo and Bobbo to help out

  18. zumiee said, on October 9, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    I was feeling so good about the Giants win, I even watched the A’s game. A nice double-dose of Bay Area victory mojo.

  19. tedspe said, on October 9, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Okay, Flav and zumiee made me feel a little more optimistic. In the vernacular of MAD magazine, the following (for you older guys) is sung to the tune of the old Good’n Plenty commercials:

    Bochy says
    “Love my pitcher Zito”
    Bochy says
    “Zito’s good for me”
    Bochy says
    “Love my pitcher Zito cuz he’s the only pitcher ready that–that–Oh, God, can’t anyone get a fucking extra base hit?”

    Well, Bochy’s never been known for his musical talents. But…I’m feeling good about Pablo, Buster, Angel…things will turn tomorrow

    With apologies to edd

  21. tedspe said, on October 9, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    Goodnight, gentlemen (question mark)

  22. Sportdude said, on October 9, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Yes!! Baker still hasn’t learned from Russ Ortiz. 1st Baily, then Chapman. Both times (particularly the 10th) Giants must have been thrilled..

  23. snarkk said, on October 9, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Ya know, I looked at some of the highlights on MLB.com.
    A lotta guys might have jogged out that bouncer to third and Rolen, thinking it was probably doing to get picked and then a routine throw out. But, not Arias.
    He busted his ass running down the line from the get go in the box, and because of that he just barely beat the Rolen throw after the bobble; but he did beat it. I love that. Great hustle. Hustle and respect for the game kept the Giants alive in this series…

  24. eddacker said, on October 10, 2012 at 12:36 am

    I just woke up and *smiling* we won.
    nice
    battled,
    grinding out a win
    coming back
    playing

  25. eddacker said, on October 10, 2012 at 3:20 am

    Just re-watched the game and there was a beautiful moment. Romo hangs a slider to the Giant killer Phillips and he hits a fly to Nady in left field, then . . wait for it . . . the crowd goes quiet.

    and to be honest boys, that wasn’t Pawlie talking, its Adrianna :) HI Y’ALL!
