A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Birds Flying In

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 1, 2023

Day off today before a very exciting series with Baltimore. The Orioles have a lot of young, exciting talent. Should be a fun weekend of baseball.

Boring Loss

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 31, 2023

Utterly forgettable game on many different levels.

But we needed a new thread……

We Like These Kids

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 30, 2023

I knew the Pirates were overrated but that was just too easy. Patty Bails sliding into fan favoritism. And Schmitt right behind him. FINALLY we have some young guys coming up. This team has trended away from boring and I couldn’t be more excited.

Memorial Day

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 29, 2023

Only 11 games today? How can it be Memorial Day and some teams aren’t playing? That’s a pretty big swing and a miss by MLB.

It’s 2023 and Rich Freaking Hill is starting today. How is that possible? He’s gotta be closing in on 50.

Back at home, we should make short work of the Pirates who I never thought were really any good this year despite their fast start.

Stacking W’s

Another day, another win…..

Did you guys see this? This was for the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP lol

Annihilation in Milwaukee

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 27, 2023

Don’t look now bitches, but at 8-2 for our last 10 we are the hottest team in the league. I missed a lot of the game, did Milwaukee really lead off Darin Ruf? Could they possibly be that bad?

Great match up today with Webby vs Burnsey

Bullpen Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 26, 2023

Great win using a lot of pitchers. Hopefully Wood gets his wish now and gets to go further than 5. I wonder if Kap set this up that way? We know Wood is tired of getting pulled early.

Wanna pitch longer? Pitch better.

Peralta doesn’t seem to be the same guy, let’s roast him.

Shake It Off

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 25, 2023

Expected a dud on get-a-way day and it delivered with a thud. We will be doing our typical opener bullshit today in Milwaukee though it appears that Webb is to follow because of his back? What’s an inning or two of an opener gonna do for Webb’s back?

I still play wordle every day and love it. 5-6 minutes max? I got the time.

Hey, speaking of Milwaukee (because that’s where the Kuiper’s are from) what’s everyone’s take on Glen Kuiper being fired for his use of the N word during a game a couple of weeks ago? I watched that clip several times and he clearly just fumbled his words into the worst possible word he could possibly say in the situation. I supported him getting fired because you just can’t have that happen. But let’s not forget that he went to the museum in the first place to honor the players there and to learn more about it. And he was clearly trying to say something positive about the experience of the museum.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say I feel bad for him cause I’ve always thought he was a pretty underwhelming announcer and he won’t be missed. But that word doesn’t come out of your mouth by accident. Although this was clearly an accident.


Winning Ways Continue

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 24, 2023

Get-a-Way day! After winning 9 of 10 get-a-way day kinda feels like a loss coming, right? Who knows those this team has been surprising us for a while now.

Conforto starting to do those things he needs to do so he can opt out at the end of the season……

Surprised I haven’t gotten an email from our ol’ pal Stix. If you’re reading this my man, check in, tell us how you’re doing and how you’re enjoying these games!


Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 23, 2023

Here’s the other thing to remember: While I think we are all 100% fine with not getting Correa, though we can all feel differently about the process, it’s comforting to know we have Schmitt to take over when Crawford gets hurt again or just rides off into the sunset at the end of this season.

Between adding Schmitt and Bailey our defense has improved exponentially and it’s hard not to notice the results in the win column.

Great Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 22, 2023

That was not only a good win but it was a fun one to listen to. I caught almost all of it on the radio and I must say Kuip has a renewed sense of enthusiasm in his voice. I don’t know if it’s that he has finally recovered from his throat issue or maybe he’s just sensing this is the twilight and he needs to go out with a bang. Who knows.

Now let’s shut Correa the hell down…..

Shut Out

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 21, 2023

Did not see any of the game. Looks like I didn’t miss much. I did catch Bailey’s first career hit on twitter. That’s cool for him. Our guys are starting to cobble together some god awful batting averages……

Mauling The Marlins

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 20, 2023

I know Alcantara hasn’t been the same this year as he was last year but that’s still a nice win against a stud pitcher.

Doubt Bailey is ready to hit at this level but this is a pretty lost season already so why not?

Preakness today. My pick is Blazing Sevens. I will be very surprised if Mage wins.


Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 18, 2023

I caught the end of that game on the radio. Dotel obviously on fumes pitching 3 straight days. But you know what? He got it done. And as much as we like to complain about him (and complain in general) he’s got 11 saves, 3rd in the majors.

Sweeping Philly is a legit accomplishment.

Desperately needed day off today.

Beating Philadelphia

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 17, 2023

I thought the Phillies would be better this year. Nice win over what should be a good team.

Maybe I’m not watching enough games this season but I still have no idea which Rogers is coming in when one of them gets called in.

We have extended our lead over the Rockies to 1.5 games.

Raized In Arizona

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 15, 2023

Giants took “a lazy Sunday afternoon” too literally yesterday. That was boring. They are now a half game off…..last place. I know he just returned but Crawford can only tote around this .162 BA for so long.

Is not being good enough worse than boring? Or is that the exact same thing?

Dynasty Over

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 13, 2023

That was kind of my worst fear unfolding. Klay thinking he still had “Game 6” in him and just ending up embarrassing himself. Game 6 was seven years ago. Tough decisions to make in the off season.

Kapler can’t keep trotting Stripless out there. He’s not even trying to manage if we see his dumbass on the mound again any time soon…..

This Is No John Bowker

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 12, 2023

I’m a Casey believer. Top 50 pick. Won a gold glove in the minors. Crushes the ball 443. This is no Bowker Gang member. Sure, the league will adjust but I think he’s gonna be fine. We got ourselves a homegrown bat, gents. FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!

We Got A Game 6

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 11, 2023

Draymond was on fire last night. And some how still only accumulated 3 fouls. That was the intensity they needed to bring to win that game and force all the pressure on to LA. I still don’t think they can pull this off, they’re not young and spry enough to keep that intensity going for 2 more straight games. And our true young guys just aren’t good enough.

Cobb Salad in Arizona today. Kinda feels like his stuff wouldn’t play too well in the Arizona climate (low humidity) but maybe I’m wrong and he dominates there. I can’t remember him pitching there and I’m not gonna look it up.

A Long Long Time Ago….

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 10, 2023

Came across this cool pic of Candlestick 2 weeks before it opened on April 12th 1960.

Lotta pressure on Klay tonight. He can’t keep shooting us out of games. He can’t keep thinking he’s the same guy he used to be. And it’s on Kerr to manage this. If he’s brick laying Kerr has to either get him out of there or tell him to stop shooting.

Monday Night Meltdown

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 9, 2023

Lots of ugly in the Bay Area last night. Disco gets credit for not panicking but the game was over after the first inning. It’s too bad as Washington is not exactly offering up a Murderers Row of hitters.

And then The Warriors. The sad reality must be accepted. Championship DNA cannot overcome Father Time. Life’s clock is undefeated, gents.

Winning Streak Ends

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 8, 2023

This is mostly for Loo. Can you imagine what this would have felt like? These are Mage’s owners…..

I’d like to propose a sequel. “Stripless in San Francisco”.

Make it so, Zaidi…….

Finally, Happy 64th to the GREAT Ronnie Lott.

On A Roll!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 7, 2023

We are really playing some good baseball lately. And, while still closer to last place than first place we had to start somewhere to dig ourselves out of that hole. Might as well start with playing some good baseball.

Congrats to LOO for nailing the Derby winner! I did not have Mage. I couldn’t get past his lack of experience, an angle that works far more often than not when it comes to finding the Derby winner. But Mage is making me re-think that rule.

Derrrrrrrby Day

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 6, 2023

Solid win vs Brew Crew.

Bigger and more important things happening today in Kentucky. Aye?

I’m excited about this Derby as I see it as one of the most competitive one we’ve seen in years. Forte will probably go favored and he could certainly win but I don’t see him faster than at least 7 or 8 others.

Corn on Cobb Day.

Whole Bunch Of Good Stuff

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 5, 2023

Finally back home, get the Brew Crew who is coming in from Sherpa Town–that’s advantage us at least for Game 1.

Dubs make an adjustment or two, whatever the hell that means, and boom we back on the beam.

Derby weekend is upon us gentlemen, the greatest of all the weekends. I asked Sabean’s son’s girlfriend who she liked in the Derby and she had no idea what the Derby is. 26 years old. I didn’t think it was possible to not know what the Derby is. I told her to guess. She paused, smiled and said “Bike….race?”

Anyway, Happy Oaks Day!

Great Series Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 4, 2023

Another solid pitching performance. In a world of stupid openers and piggybackers, I appreciate the solid starting job. And we even added on to a lead something we usually give up weakly. Going into Houston and winning 2 of 3 was very impressive.

Dubon came up ant-small after his stupid, misguided comments.

Win And A Loss

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 3, 2023

Can Disco, Cobb and Webb get us to around .500 at the Break? That’s the key for me. If they can maybe Zaidi has a leash to do a few deals. That’s about the best we can hope for this year, I think.

Not sure where Dubs go from here. If they don’t have an answer for AD this is over.

Tired Group

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 2, 2023

LOL, they were gone two days.

And San Diego didn’t seem to have any problem waxing the Reds last night.

Outside of pro golfers, baseball players have to be the softest group.

Hey, at least Stevenson arrived in time to save the day.

Stevenson? Yeah, the guy who we bought from the A’s. THE OAKLAND A’S! Farhan is just not

a serious GM…….

Good Riddance, Mexico

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 1, 2023

That place is stupid.

And you can bet your bottom dollar there’s gonna be a hangover today in Houston as they struggle to adjust to the dramatic climate change.

If our bullpen is going to continue to implode we are going to need a better offense.
Love what we’ve seen from Haniger so far…….

Moon Ball

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 30, 2023

That was…pretty stupid. Can’t imagine MLB is going to keep this absurd location on the docket. At least we learned something about Manaea who is one tough SOB.

Back at it again today. At some point even something as cool as a homerun becomes pretty staid when it’s so repetitive as it was yesterday…..

Huge Warrior Misstep

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 29, 2023

Seems like the Dubs were relying a little too much on “Championship DNA” to carry them through to the 2nd round. Man, that was ugly. Not sure how they bounce back from that.

Mexico City. ZZZZzzzzz. That do anything for ya? I’d just as soon we play the games here, this is a distraction and it’s unnecessary.

Whimpering Our Way To Mexico

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 28, 2023

Didn’t see the game. I’m assuming Webb was marginally better than the relievers. But in the end it didn’t matter, we get shut out. Now it’s off the Mexico, no game today. Hmmmmm what to do with no baseball game today? Well I heard their might be a basketball game going on somewhere in SF…….

W’s On Top of W’s

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 27, 2023

I missed the Giants game, mostly, for obvious reasons. It would be so *Warriors* to lose game 6. I’m honestly having trouble managing all this winning going on around here lately. The W’s are starting to stack up….

This is a thoughtful, interesting take by Giannis. I don’t agree with all of it but he definitely gave me a different perspective to consider.


Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 26, 2023

Lemme tell ya something, not even Sarah and David saw that one coming….

I spent the first two outs of the 9th inning doing a slow burn. Estrada can’t move Yaz from 2nd. Crawford strikes out. The bespeckled Sabol digs himself a 1-2 shallow grave….and then an absolute magical moment unfolds.

Baseball. There is NOTHING like it.

Katie and I went to see her cousin sing the national anthem and I thought I had the whole thing brilliantly filmed and this is what I actually got lol

Francis Ford Coppola I am not….

But I’m not gonna lie. These Believers might be on to something. And what’s the harm in believing? It don’t cost nuthin’…..

Birds Get Shut Out

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 25, 2023

Well that’s certainly one way to avoid a bullpen implosion— good for Cobb Salad who finally put it all together.

There are unconfirmed news reports that Sarah and David were dancing down the Embarcadero like 2 young whirling dervish.

I shall be at the game tonight and will see if I can join up with the rest of The Believers…

The Believers

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 24, 2023

Yes, it is reasonable to assume that I have too much fun with ChatGPT. This will not be the last one:

“Sarah and David had always been big fans of the San Francisco Giants. They had grown up watching the team play and had fond memories of attending games with their families. So, when the Giants had a particularly bad season, it was a tough pill to swallow for the die-hard fans.

But Sarah and David never lost faith. They believed in the team, even when everyone else thought they were terrible. They knew that the Giants had the potential to be great and that they just needed a little bit of support and encouragement to get there.

As the season wore on, the Giants continued to struggle. They were losing games left and right, and their record was one of the worst in the league. But Sarah and David refused to give up on them. They continued to attend games, cheering loudly and proudly for their beloved team.

Their dedication didn’t go unnoticed. Other fans began to take notice of their unwavering support, and soon, a group of die-hard Giants fans had formed around Sarah and David. They called themselves the “Believers” and made a pact to never give up on the team, no matter how bad things got.

Despite the odds, the Giants began to turn things around. They started winning more games, and their confidence grew with each victory. The Believers were there every step of the way, cheering them on and never losing faith.

Finally, the Giants made it to the playoffs, much to the surprise of everyone who had doubted them. Sarah and David were overjoyed, knowing that their unwavering belief in the team had paid off.

As the Giants went on to win the World Series, Sarah and David were at the stadium, tears streaming down their faces as they celebrated with the rest of the Believers. They knew that they had been a part of something special, something that had required dedication, perseverance, and an unshakeable belief in the power of the Giants.

Years later, Sarah and David would look back on that season with fondness, remembering the joy and camaraderie that had come from believing in something when no one else did. And they knew that they would always be Giants fans, through thick and thin, because they had seen what could happen when you never lose faith.”

Playing Winning Baseball

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 23, 2023

What’s this? We took a lead and then…..held the lead? And won the game? This is an exciting time to be a Giants fan. Sarah and David were both rewarded for their faith. Maybe it’s true. Win or lose the Giants always play with pride and determination. That is certainly something to be proud of.

Speaking of not playing with either of those things the A’s lost 18-3 and already have a -100 run differential! That is DOUBLE the next worst team. Wow!

ChatGPT Takes Over Again

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 22, 2023

ok, last one I promise. For now at least. Here’s what i put into chatgpt: “SF Giants get shut out by Mets. Fans remain hopeful and positive”. LOL. Wrote this in 3 seconds.

“It was a beautiful day in San Francisco, the sun was shining, and the air was crisp. The SF Giants were playing at home against the New York Mets, and the atmosphere was electric. The stadium was packed with fans wearing orange and black, cheering and rooting for their team.

As the game began, the Giants started off strong, with great pitching and fielding. However, as the game progressed, the Mets began to take control, scoring run after run. By the end of the game, the Giants had been shut out, losing 7-0 to the Mets.

Despite the loss, the fans remained positive and inspired by their team’s efforts. As they filed out of the stadium, they chanted “Let’s go Giants!” and talked excitedly about the team’s future.

“I’m disappointed we lost,” said Sarah, a longtime Giants fan. “But the Giants played with heart today. They never gave up, even when the game was out of reach.”

“I agree,” said David, another fan. “The Giants have been playing really well this season. One loss doesn’t define their season. They’ll bounce back stronger than ever.”

The fans were right to be positive. The Giants went on to have a successful season, making it to the playoffs and thrilling their fans with exciting victories. Even though they had been shut out by the Mets, the fans remained confident and supportive of their team. They knew that, win or lose, the Giants always played with pride and determination, and that was something to be proud of.”

ChatGPT Weighs In

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 21, 2023

I plugged a couple of key words into ChatGPT and it spit this *story* out in about 4 seconds. Weird wild stuff man…..

It was a cool Spring evening at Oracle Park in San Francisco, and the home team, the Giants, were facing off against the New York Mets. The stadium was buzzing with excitement as fans filled the seats, hoping to see their team take home a win.

The game got off to a rough start for the Giants, with the Mets quickly jumping out to an early lead. Their starting pitcher, Sean Manaea, was struggling to find his rhythm, and the Mets were taking full advantage.

Despite a valiant effort by some of the Giants’ batters, including power hitters Sabol and Late Night Lamonte, the team was unable to overcome their early deficit. Sabol smashed a homerun deep into left field, bringing the score to 4-2 in the fourth inning. But the Mets quickly responded with another run of their own, widening the gap.

The Giants’ pitching was atrocious, with Manaea being pulled from the game after just four innings. His replacement, a rookie named Beck, was clearly not ready for the big leagues. This Beck reminded no one of the great Rod Beck from years past.

As the game wore on, it became clear that the Giants were outmatched. The fans grew increasingly restless, with many of them heading for the exits early. Sabol and Lamonte continued to fight, but it was clear that their efforts were in vain.

In the end, it was Beck who finished the game for the Giants, though he was hardly a bright spot. The final score was a lopsided 12-3 in favor of the Mets, leaving the home team and their fans devastated.

As the crowd filed out of the stadium, many were left wondering what had gone wrong. The Giants had been on a roll lately, but they had been thoroughly destroyed by the Mets. It was a bitter pill to swallow, but they knew that they would have to regroup and come back stronger if they wanted to have a shot at the playoffs.

On Our Way Back Home

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 20, 2023

I don’t even want to think about what our mood would have been if they had lost that game. Luckily they won and I don’t have to think about it. Now, The Mets.

Really excited for the Warriors game tonight. Couldn’t really build up more intrigue into a Game 3 first round game if you tried to.

Another Lead Lost

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 19, 2023

This season has reminded me a lot of this Seinfeld scene. We know how to TAKE a lead what we can’t seem to do is HOLD a lead….

Draymond being suspended for Game 3 is a total joke. At least the game is in SF where I expect we will see a different Kings team…….

Light The Beam

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 18, 2023

I’m not gonna lie, I like “light the beam” lol. And I can’t even be mad about last night’s loss. Draymond just doing his typical out of control shit. That dude needs to develop a self control plan. I get it, Sabonis grabbed him a little but it does not justify stomping a dude out. You’re just trying to get ejected when you do that. Total meltdown and probably the reason they ultimately lost but take nothing away from Sacramento who just keeps bringin’ it. They are such a fun team to watch…….

Speaking of fun teams to watch…..there continues to be one on the exact opposite end of the fun spectrum and that would be our SF Giants. I don’t even know what else to say about them anymore. Thank God for NBA and the lit beam to keep me distracted from their awfulness…..

We Didn’t Lose

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 17, 2023

Snuck out of Detroit with a postponement. At this point, if it’s not a loss I’m taking it. Miami is just not a fun place to play. Luzardo seems rejuvenated there though so I am guessing this is going to be another tough game for the Orange and Black.

Dubs/Sactown in another barn burner tonight!

The Giants Suck And This Is Gonna Be a FUN Series

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 16, 2023

What’s funny is that when we are discussing the now THREE worst losses of the season they are all to the worst teams in the league. Kansas City and Detroit can’t beat anybody. But they have no problem bending us over for the most painful of buttfuckings.

Man, that basketball game was FUN last night! Obviously I was disappointed that the Warriors lost but that game had high intensity and intrigue from start to finish. Honestly, it reminded me a lot of the Niners/Dallas NFC Championship game. The grizzled vet team at the end of their dynasty vs the young upstart kids who no one believed in. It’s fun to see their fans so elated. I remember what that felt like back in 1981…..

I also received some critical acclaim on the text line with my buddies when I simply declared “WiggOUT!” after Wiggins missed that wide open 3 near the end of the game…..

I’ve enjoyed watching the Kings all year. I even have $20 on them to win it all that I did months ago. I get it, it’s unlikely that a team with no experience can win the NBA Championship but I’ve felt all year that these guys are legit. If the Dubs can’t advance I have no problem rooting for the Kings the rest of the way……..

Defining The Worst Loss

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 15, 2023

I still say last Saturday was the worst loss of the season. I know we have the recency bias to support yesterday’s game as the worst. Still, I had to watch last Sat live and yesterday didn’t even get to see it because of stupid Apple tv. The radio was bad but not as bad as having to watch it. I re-watched the Maton Bomb at mlb.com. It was horrific as expected.

I dunno. What do you guys think? Which was the worse loss?


Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 14, 2023

Ok, no fiddling around here. Detroit is awful. The one decent thing they had last year was their bullpen and they dismantled it. Got to be a sweep-a-roonie or I’m gonna be pissed.

Muncy’d Again

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 13, 2023

This is the type of stuff that pisses me off…..

“Baseball’s Weird”

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 12, 2023

And, there ya go. Get destroyed on Monday? No problem. We’ll just shut them out on Tuesday.

We continue to display all the hallmarks of a .500 team. Which isn’t the end of the world, by the way. If Zaidi has the green light at the deadline and he makes a few moves…..

Who knows? But Webb must cease and desist with his bed shitting…..

I still can’t believe they’re doing these City Connect unis. People say, “it’s marketing they wouldn’t do it otherwise.” Well in 3 years or whatever it’s been I’ve never seen a single person, anywhere, wearing a City Connect uni.

Embarrassing Game 1

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 11, 2023

LA quickly reminded the world who their bitch is. I shouldn’t be surprised, a team that was all out to beat the Royals 1 time (and who blew a 5-1 lead to them as well) has no business competing with the Dodgers. Not this year. Or at least, not last night.

Baseball’s weird, we’ll probably smoke them tonight.

One thing is crystal clear: if Webb doesn’t stop shittin’ the bed we have no hope at .500 this season.

LAme In Town

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 10, 2023

Finally no more days off and we get right into it with LA tonight.

I missed yesterday’s game. It went better than Saturday’s did.

I’m strangely confident in Webb winning us this game tonight.
