A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

“What if We’d Lost that Game?????”

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 15, 2010

I can’t shake that question and can’t imagine this place if we hadn’t won that game. And yet I still don’t know how we won it. We had no chance to win. Yet when we went extra innings I was CERTAIN we were gonna win it. Doesn’t make sense, I know….

Our bullpen has quietly turned into one of the most reliable cogs on our team. 4 innings of no run ball yesterday, 3.2 innings of no run ball the day before. And it’s been EVERYONE…….

The ONLY thing I’m worried about today is that Timmy tries to hard. Just let it flow, baby. LeBlanc isn’t a chump but he’s totally beatable and Tim’s lost to a few guys like this in 2010…

Regardless,  today is huge. Not a must win since we have several more games against the Padres this year, but if Timmy is going to be a part of this TODAY needs to be his day. Very few of the Pads hit him even moderately well….

    Make it a 2-man playoff.

    You guys aren’t mad enough. Lincecum didn’t have a decent day. Of course San Diego has some breaks and skill. It happens.

    Two words…Horrible Loss

  4. bigflavor said, on August 15, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    “horrible?”. No. This one was never in doubt, I reserve “horrible” for when victory is taken from us, unjustly or without notice. But Timmy has served his “notice” and it should scare the shit out of every giants fan out there. When we need him the most, he’s MIA. That’s devastating…..

      Was talking about the loss of an ace…not the team.

    Time for Lincecum to bring in the old man for some snatch the pebble from the hand excercises. Or maybe that one where he picks up the flamming hot kettel with his forearms, ends up with two dragon tattoos and wanders off into the snow to walk the earth and seek his destiny. Okay, since it s the height of summer that one might not work.

    On another note. A friend of mine down in that cess pool also known as Los Angeles spent some time with Randy Johnson this past weekend. As some of you probably know Johnson is into shitty death metal and photography and has been out taking pictures of rock stars as a second act. Probably just more of a hobby that takes advantage of his access. Anyway, my buddy says it was great escorting RJ around Ozzfest or whatever show he was promoting down there and RJ was a cool dude. Didn’t really want to talk baseball but did tell him he has been following the Giants.

      I hope he does more Geico (or is it Progressive?) commercials . . . Love the one where he throws the snowball at his friend and almost severs his arm and caves in the garage door. Too bad he can’t still throw like that in real life . . . sigh.

    Michael! You gone repressive too? I can understand it with Dennis and the hair, growing up getting rapped over the knuckles by the nuns. But you had more advantages and have travelled a bunch. Reading and roading, ya know? So what’s it with the hair. Mine is short nowadays, because it’s thinned out to a nice little helicopter landing-pad right up the top. But Timmy has a fine head of hair. It’s either what’s underneath it, something in his arm or general conditioning that’s the problem, not the hair. So don’t sweat the petty stuff, pet the sweaty stuff.

    Okay, so i just got a bit ripped. After that game, who wouldn’t ? Yes, Timmy’s a bit off right now and should have got it together today. Who knows what his psychology could be?
    I know, things were looking up after Bumgarner stood toe to toe with Latos yesterday; Panda produced and Posey sparkled. But now its gloomsville and everyone here is bummed to the max. Maybe even Max himself.

    Our ace is nowhere to be found. Maybe he could use the assistance of a hypnotist who also has some training in dealing with personal issues. Could be there’s already a sports hypnotist out there somewhere. But it could also be physical. So he also needs to be consulting a good team of sports medicine analysts. If the problem is physical, judging by his slender frame alone, it might be best for his long-term betterment and for the good of the team, if he spends 15 days on the DL, starting today. If he’s better by then, August 31 is the date for Post-Season eligibility. He could return to the roster that day if he’s put on the DL tonight. Not much time for consulting, huh?

    Anybody got any better answers than mine as to how to go ahead with Timmy, i wanna hear em. But cut the stoopid shit with the hair and BTW, after that bust last Winter maybe the team is going along with a pisstesting regimen and Timmy is Jonesing for a buzz.
    Oh, but that would spoil baseball’s clean “family friendly” image. So here’s my final question of this post:
    Do the Giants want to win the West this season? Could it be that our ace has gotten trumped cause he can’t get high under rules imposed after he got stoopid one day and got pulled over with his key to personal freedom, happiness and feeling of well-being being denied him?

    There’s a voter referendum in California this year that would enable citizens and residents of the state to enjoy their holy smokum in peace. I won’t be able to vote for it because of being in Minnesota, not California. We don’t enjoy the rights and privileges of initiative and referendum here in the North Star state. But most Giants fans live in California. At least one flapper probably could work the kind of connections to find out whether Timmy’s been cut off from his weed. If that’s the case, then we can all understand why our Ace just hasn’t been cutting it the second half of the season.

    I’ll get back to the blog after doing some more work outdoors. Again, anyone come up with some better answers as to what’s going on with Timmy, i sure wanna hear em.

    If you’re Randy Johnson, you are retired and have a billion dollars— you can do anything you want almost. And his fucking hobby is photographing shitty death metal bands????? That’s hilarious. Thanks for the story dirt, we needed sone levity around here today….

  8. Nipper said, on August 15, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    Yeah anything to take our minds off of this latest fiasco is very appreciated.

  9. dirtnrocksnreno said, on August 15, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    The thought of RJ on the other side of the lens is pretty funny.

    “Don’t get in my face,” Johnson then said. “I don’t care who you are. Don’t get in my face.”

    “I’m just taking a picture,” said the cameraman.

    Responded Johnson: “Don’t get in my face, and don’t talk back to me, all right.”

    You guys all go out to dinner together at 6:00?

  11. xootsuit said, on August 15, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    Maybe they all have hair stylists who work on Sunday evenings — get that buzz cut.

  12. wswinb4igo said, on August 15, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    No offense stix but I’m infavor of the haircut. Could be a reverse Samson affect.

    Good news for the Giants: They’ll miss Halladay
    Bad news for the Phillies: They’ll miss Lincecum

  14. James said, on August 15, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Good news for the Giants: Lincecum did K 6. If the loss in MPH is permanent, then games like today’s are going to happen to him more frequently, unless or until he learns to be finer with the location at 90. No way Cabrera dinks that single up the middle on a shoulder high 95 mph fastball. Still, he has a great change up and a good curve ball. He should remain at least a pretty good pitcher, even without the top shelf fastball.

    Timmy since 5/20. 6-7 with a 4.63 ERA. Somebody call Jose Eber and make him an appointment.

  16. Unca Chuck said, on August 15, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Del, when was Bengie traded?

  17. Unca Chuck said, on August 15, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    Nvrmnd . . .

    It was 5/31 . . .

  18. James said, on August 15, 2010 at 11:39 pm

    Lincecum’s ERA jumped to 3 on his 5/26 start. It hovered consistently near the low 3 range for 13 starts until the last 2 ass kickings. This doesn’t have anything to do with who the catcher is.

    Seems like a long time ago. But moment of reverence today, on the anniversary of the death of Ray Chapman. RIP.

    • delmardennis said, on August 16, 2010 at 6:56 am

      Shows my ignorance, I had to look up Ray Chapman. Wow, his death resulted in a few changes. Replacing a dirty ball, and the outlaw of the spitter. Took over 30 yrs. till baseball required helmets to be worn however. Typical.

  20. delmardennis said, on August 16, 2010 at 6:50 am

    Timmy has lost three consecutive starts for the first time in his career.
    I’ve always wondered why Barbicide® is blue? I think combs would look better in either a green or red solution; make it feel like Christmas.
