A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Dirrrrrty’s Mouth and Welcome Back Manny Burriss…..

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 9, 2010

This will be unpopular, but I like Jonathan Sanchez’ bold words after yesterday’s game: “We’re going to play SD and we’re going to beat them 3 times. If we get to first place, we’re not looking back. We are definitely going to make the playoffs”…..Hell yes, say it again, louder this time! And to make this bold claim even more impressive, Dirrrty had the balls to say this on the heels of the team looking so awful in Atlanta. I’m surprising this wake up call came from him, he’s not exactly a visible team leader. But I’m glad he said it. The Giants needs a reminder that this is August and they are in a pennant race. Freddy Sanchez doesn’t know what the hell is going on right now, he’s usually booking his Winter vacation around this time. The team has to play the rest of the season with a belief that they aren’t just good enough but that they WILL BE WINNING this thing. No other mental approach makes sense. Forgot all that “locker room pin up shit”– The Padres have been kicking our ass all year, I LOVE IT that they are now hearing an attitude from us— kinda reminds me of Rocky in Rocky 3 during the 2nd fight with Clubber Lang: “Ain’t so bad! Ain’t so bad! Ain’t so bad!!!!”…. Pin those comments up on every locker in SD for all I care…….

Manny Burriss getting recalled today (according to Baggs). No big surprise, especially since it will likely be The Todd who gets bounced. I would be more excited about Burriss’ arrival if I felt confident that speed was still a major part of his game but I think he isn’t going to be back to full physical and mental strength until next year. Either way, if his arrival sends Franchez to the bench a little more, I’m all for that……..

I didn’t make it POTD, though I should have.  On the last thread, Zumie made a good point:

The thing that is the bad thing on any of these blogs is grating repetition. Soph, at the Splash, is horrible, but even more horrible because of the repetition. If someone has a criticism, make the criticism and then MOVE ON to other things, or come back to the old thing in a new creative way. This is why TF is so good at this stuff. I see people all the time talk about him never criticizing the Giants. Say what? The dude shares his criticisms of the Giants; he just doesn’t keep repeating the same criticism over and over. He moves on with the unfolding events.”

I’d like everyone to remember this. The Flap isn’t The Splash, thank God. Let’s not act like the posters still left in that tumbleweed town……

    Where’s chuck? He’s usually the one who comments on every at-bat.
    Like on The Splash but better.
    There, barryforever has the play by play

    What’s that, 5 line drives caught? 6? We should be murdering these fuckers right now

  4. TedSpe said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    SLIDER! CHANGEUP! FASTBALL! SOMETHING!

  5. Michael said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    The park is playing like 700 feet to center and right center. Stay away.

    • TedSpe said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:38 pm

      I have no idea what that means but I will defend to the death your right to say it

  6. dirtnrocksnreno said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Didn’t Uribe walk like 5 or 6 straight ABs earlier this year?
    …Nice.

  7. dirtnrocksnreno said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    What is Chicago carrying 13 pitchers or something?

  8. Michael said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    OK- do you bunt with Travis? PH for Travis and bunt? Hit and run? Travis hit away? What do you do?

  9. alleykat said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    Nice start working that walk Juan.Ok an Ishi sac bunt, 2 shots to knock Juan in and it’s Wilson time,sound about right?

  10. stixwiz said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    With the atem balls and the whiffs, how many walks have they not cashed in on tonight? And one more thing. Enough with the GDPs!

  11. PawlieKokonuts said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    bunt

  12. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    Rowand’s 0-6 w/ 3Ks vs Marshall. Not an option.

  13. PawlieKokonuts said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    WTF was that, Travesty?

  14. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    Rudi Stein it!

  15. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    What is up Flappers. Been out of the loop for a while…and I miss it like hell. Work has gotten really serious on the lock-down, so it is the evenings for Flapping. And I have this old boat anchor desktop (all the more reason I need to win one of Twin’s boxes)!

    Anyway, Giants need this game…need at least 3 of 4 from the Cubs and two from Dago.

    Anyway, I have missed this blog, and especially sharing baseball with all of you. Most nights when I get home I am with the lady doing something, but will try to get back to posting regularly.

    GO GIANTS! Orange and Black Forever!!

    Oh, and great post by Zumie…should have been a POTD.

    • delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:50 pm

      Sure, you show back up right after they go back to 12 pitchers. 😉 Good to see ya back.

  16. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Nice bunt by Ishi! Good call…they need to mix it up…BADLY.

  17. max808 said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    After the first attempt, I would have let him swing away. Good job Travis.

  18. DJLoo said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Freddy’s puttin’ on the foil…

  19. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Fucking little bastard of a runt is due.

  20. Michael said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    That is exactly what I would have done 😉

  21. zumarust said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Marty Lurie was doing a spiel the other night about how the Giants should go after Figgins, and how the Mariners were more committed to their manager than Figgins. Oops.

  22. PawlieKokonuts said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    ok little bingle little Freddy; Sean Marshall was good till I got him in fantasy

  23. blade3colorado said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    About time you reported in Chi . . . Flav sent out the truant officer looking for you.

    • TedSpe said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:49 pm

      But the little ingrant refused to answer the door

  24. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Hey Blade…seriously…I miss this place…and all you MoFos!

    Need a run here… Wilson to lock it down in the 9th!

  25. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    Hey, and if I HAD answered the door…it would have been with a loaded 45. 😉

    • TedSpe said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:03 pm

      Oh you kid, you

  26. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    Fuck…that was ugly.

  27. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    Dammit!

  28. blade3colorado said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    I’m serious too . . . Flav sent me an email wanting to know where you were (told him the same thing you said above . . . work).

  29. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    And Flav – I agree with you spin on the thread today. I love it that Sancez came out all brash about the Giants going to kick Dago’s ass. As you said…let them hang it on every fucking locker and every door. Fuck them!

  30. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    Yeah, it sucks…but what the fuck…I guess I should be working when I am at work, eh? (Rhetorical question…no smart-assed comments required.)

  31. blade3colorado said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    I think you missed him . . . He went to bed a few minutes before you posted earlier. I hear my bed calling me too . . . Frickin’ win the game already G-men!!!!

  32. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    I’ve never been a fan of bringing in the closer in a non save situation. I know this is what “the book” says, but I wrote my own book. And as evidenced by my daily material, it hasn’t sold too many copies.

    • wswinb4igo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:00 pm

      If you write about closers not coming into the game in top 9 tie at home…that book shouldn’t sell Dennis…

  33. DJLoo said, on August 9, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    Not true, Blade. I told him if he put on his pajamas and brushed his teeth, he could stay up an extra hour.

  34. blade3colorado said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    . . . and you wonder why his grades are so bad.

  35. Michael said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    Nobody likes “the book” until the manager goes against it and the move fails. Then it’s not the book, it’s the Bible.

  36. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    The Bat is 3 for 7 including a homer off of Marshall. Can we say walk-off?

  37. Nipper said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    You guys need Soph to become even more depressed. She’s one big downer chick.

  38. alleykat said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    Glad we never took out a flier on Nady.he really sucks for the Cubs,and they threw 3.3 Mil his way.Another GM Hendry disaster.

  39. DJLoo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    PR?

  40. Nipper said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    Extra innings. More ball!

  41. San Dog said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Good to see you back, Chi. I was thinking of you as I blew through Hangtown the other day on the way to Tahoe.

    • ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:23 pm

      Thanks, Dog.

  42. alleykat said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    No Loo…All you had left was Whitey.Not much gain,and alot worse bat for more innings rather have Pat still in there.

    • DJLoo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:16 pm

      Thank you.

  43. PawlieKokonuts said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    me sleepy

  44. DJLoo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    I’d look into a blockbuster with the Cubs involving Rowand and A. Ramirez.

  45. Michael said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    That’s what I meant, Ted.

  46. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    LOOGY?

  47. wswinb4igo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    that was a must stop too…ishi

  48. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    Feeling it for all you Flappers on the right coast. Extra innings kicking your asses?

  49. Macdog said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    Yes, get this friggin’ thing over with!

  50. alleykat said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    Yeah solid game saving play by Ishi… Wsw

  51. stixwiz said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    Defense!

  52. DJLoo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    No big deal, Chi. I don’t open my take-out kitchen till noon.

    • ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:32 pm

      Loo – you have made it back since I dropped off the planet. Good to see you Flappin’ again. Take out kitcher, eh? What’s your specialty?

      Let’s go Giants…time to get this fucker over with!

  53. alleykat said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    Yeah good to see you back Chi….Now let’s end this thing so we can tuck into bed the East Coaster with happy dreams of VICTORY!!!!

  54. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    H&R here with the little runt…

  55. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Damn, Boch starting Ishi…’bout time he mixed it up a bit.

  56. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    He blows.

  57. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Fiucking Sanchez just does not have a clue…dude looks completely lost.

  58. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    Can Andre be the hero, again?

  59. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Fuck! I thought Ishi was going to end it!!!

  60. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Fuuuuuuck.

  61. Michael said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggggyhyhyhyhyh! Great effort, T.

  62. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Andre did his part…he is the man.

  63. wswinb4igo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    damn…thought that bobble out there would do it..

  64. eddacker415 said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    one perfect throw, one more inning

  65. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    Me too, WSW. If I was in Flannery’s shoes…I send him, too!

  66. dirtnrocksnreno said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    eh,eh, eh…..AAAAAHHHHHRRRrrrr

  67. delmardennis said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    Bastard recovered after the bobble and hit the cutoff; nice relay indeed. Pisser.

  68. Michael said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    It was Major League baseball all the way there.

  69. DJLoo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    Just had a flashback of JT & Pudge in ’03.

  70. alleykat said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    Do or die play by Flannery to send him.Just died.Oh well still the right call.

  71. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    You’re right Twin…that was Major League hardball all the way. Gotta try to send ’em home happy there….yes, the right call.

  72. zumarust said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    The ump should have called Ishi safe because Ishi made a decent effort to get to the plate.

    • wswinb4igo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:48 pm

      Funny zum…but the ump was on the catchers side the other time too..they’re friendly with each other back there…sharing storys and scars…

  73. Michael said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    Good one, Z. Zelke thought I had a seizure…

    • TedSpe said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:48 pm

      Zeke would know

  74. mrmrbill said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    hey, Kruk just corrected the Spahn trivia question!

    • DJLoo said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:51 pm

      Glad you were paying attention.

      • mrmrbill said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:58 pm

        but of course! just like E.F. Hutton, when Loo speaks — people listen.

  75. ChiPower said, on August 9, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    Classic, Zumie.
