A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Twin’s New Contest and something from “Ted Sillanpaa”….

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 24, 2010

For whatever reason, I am not able to cut and paste this into today’s thread. But Twin has set up another contest: Pick the total number of wins for the season. Tie breaker is total runs scored for the year. Email your picks to twinfan1@hotmail.com. He’s giving away another custom built computer, everyone is eligible. He can post the specs later today…..

I shut down the old blog and have any comments that get posted there now coming to me first for moderation. Amazingly, people still try to post there almost every single day though I haven’t approved even one comment there in months. Anyway, this was an interesting comment I got last night. Anybody read this guy? He gets bent pretty easily, doesn’t he…..

this is what he was responding to that I wrote last March 23rd….

“Tuesday, March 23, 2010
The Final Roster Spots…..
Some guy named Ted Sillanpaa wrote an article in The Bleacher Report that suggests the last roster spot is going to shake out of this group: Bowker, Ishikawa, Velez, Torres, Posey, Frandsen and Lewis. I dunno, how can you trust an opinion from a guy named “Sillanpaa”? That name sounds made up. I haven’t played out a “fantasy roster” ..”

Then this was the post he tried to make last night:

“Gee. Can’t imagine how your blog died.
The last name came with my family from Finland. And, the Giants final decisions did involve those guys. Thanks for giving me and the friend who somehow found this a laugh.
Ted Sillanpaa”

My question:  his *friend* found this? Right. $10 says this dude sits around all day doing google searches of his made-up name  and then desperately reads anything that anyone has written about this chump. I still don’t know who this guy is or if he’s a real person. He’s probably a bot. Two flaps down to this Sillanpaa character……

    If we have to bring in Wilson tonight, I’m gonna punch my cat.

    Nice high wire act by Casilla

    Loved the crystal clear sound of a Giant fan to Rolen.”You Suck,Your a Piece of Shit”.

  4. snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    Didya see that 5 second skank eye Votto had after that nasty curve ball called strike 3? Awesome curveball….

  5. wswinb4igo said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    wow… Pablo

  6. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    I just got here cuz I was busy watching Asian porn and…I mean I just got home from work..yeah..but I gotta say, you fucking clowns certainly know how to call a game. I feel…wrong word…I’m guessing I know *exactly* what’s been happening through this game.
    And by the way…
    SANDOVAL!!!!!!!

  7. DJLoo said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    A field goal should ice it.

  8. stixwiz said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    Panda is back. It’s official now.

  9. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    Giants’ runs.
    Feast or famine

  10. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    Thank God he got hot here and not in Fresno.

  11. willied said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    What a comeback by Casilla. When he is on the black, he is unhittable. Nice heat, and a killer breaking ball. We all know how wild he can be, but he is not a comfortable AB for anyone.

    Fuck Votto. sit down and stfu–you had a bat in your hands with the sacks loaded, and still had it your hands as you walked back to the bench.

    Can Pablo keep this up for 6 more weeks? Another fucking rocket!

  12. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    MILF!!!!!

  13. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    There have been false wake up alarms before. If he really is back this time, they’re in.

  14. stixwiz said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Freddy looks ready ~ for the postseason.

  15. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    I apologize to any of you who might know her…personally

  16. wswinb4igo said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Still need them to pitch Mike…

    • Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:42 pm

      No, Jed said pitching is fine.

  17. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Feast or famine

  18. stixwiz said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Torrid Torres torments em.

  19. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Oops, now they’re 7th in runs in NL-upper echelon 😉

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:43 pm

      I’m liking my “tie-breaker”

    • Cal_Stim25 said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:33 pm

      my exact thought watching this offensive explosion:

      I wonder where the Giants rank in runs scored NOW.

  20. unca chuck said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    Criminy. 1 run in 2 games previous to these 2.

    These 2? 27 and counting.

    • zumarust said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:46 pm

      They must have heard BF tell them yesterday to score some GD MF runs.

  21. mrmrbill said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    BTW, what was with the loonng stink eye that Votto put on Casilla with the called strike in the 6th?

    • Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:46 pm

      I didn’t see what he did but Santiago is pretty demonstrative.

      • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:49 pm

        1 game under .500
        Not bad at all

  22. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Actually, Giants are one of the better road teams in baseball.

  23. EdGdsnInExile said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    It’s almost 1 AM in the East, so I am assuming you all will bring this one home. ‘night

  24. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Hold on folks…zum was just thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to using a couple naughty words.
    Shame on you zum
    😉

    • zumarust said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:49 pm

      Gadzooks! What was I thinking.

      • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:54 pm

        Egads, man! Watch yourself!!

      • unca chuck said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:57 pm

        Shut the front door!!

  25. stixwiz said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    If Casilla could develop a controllable changeup he’d be totally impossible.

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:55 pm

      Impossible to what?

  26. snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    If I just dropped in on this one without looking, I’d think this score was vintage ’80s Chinese Taipei vs. US at Williamsport… These last two games is some historic offensive shit for the Giants, per Flemm. With global warming, maybe we’ll see it more often now than once every 3 decades…

  27. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    As it is he’s arrogant and leaves the seat up.

    • delmardennis said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:15 pm

      As a Stanford grad, he probably can afford to have an illegal alien be his personal Toilet Seat Puter Downer.

  28. stixwiz said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    NICE clean inning by Affeldt. Very encouraging outing. If he’s back to form, there’s some real relief for the rest of the season.

  29. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    You know, a couple years back I was in an “Over 40” softball league and after the..5th or 6th inning, I forget, the losing team in a game like this was allowed to go:
    “We’re done. Game over”

    Cuttin’ into their beer time

  30. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    FSanchez obviously FINALLY changed his thong

  31. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    16? I don’t wanna hear any bitching about runs until, let’s see, Wed,Fri.. OK, Monday.

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:14 pm

      Allow me to begin tomorrow.
      I thank you

  32. stixwiz said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Freddy looks plenty ready. I think his owies are gone.

  33. Macdog said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    This one is such a rout, they could put in Guillen for defense and not have to sweat.

  34. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:12 pm

    Well, we got this series.
    GOD!!! I have a grasp for the obvious

  35. wswinb4igo said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Bailey who goes for the reds tomorrow can pitch…it won’t be as easy…

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:15 pm

      You must be a lot of fun at parties

      • Cal_Stim25 said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:36 pm

        I laughed out loud at this one. for a good 5-7 seconds. Good one, ted

    • Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:19 pm

      Wood can, too. Man, tough fucking crowd. Wood one-hit Philly, had given up more than 3 just once. He’s been way better than Bailey.
      But yeah, Homer can be tough if he’s on his feed.

  36. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    I suppose it’s late to kvetch about tonight’s lineup?

  37. snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    If Bonds were on the squad, he’d be halfway home to Hillsborough already…

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:17 pm

      Charming.
      Why go there?

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:18 pm

      Pointless. Absolutely pointless

      • Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:24 pm

        Give Snarkk a break. He cracked a smile and his upper lip fell off.

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:28 pm

        Sheezus, it’s a joke about how big a laugher it is. Lighten up, boys…

    • Cal_Stim25 said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:37 pm

      have you ever not used an ellipsis?

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:42 pm

        Not that I remember. It was good enough for Herb, so it’s good enough for me…

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:40 pm

      Sorry. It’s just..from some of your other shit, I wasn’t sure what your intention was. But..yeah. Ya know? It was funny.
      Again, sorry

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:46 pm

        Itz cool. Next time I’ll put the smiley face on to give you guys a heads up for humor intention. Doesn’t say much for my attempt, but, oh well, I figured Giants fans would get the thing with Barry leaving the bench just a tad early in the latter innings. And yes, I enjoyed the hell outta this game….

  38. delmardennis said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    Never too soon to bitch about tomorrow’s….

  39. Macdog said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    Game over. Has the point spread been set for tomorrow?

  40. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    $12 says FSanchez hit on her

  41. JBat said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    A hot Panda and Franchez really beefs up this lineup. Awesome couple of games.

  42. wswinb4igo said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    Makes it fun and such a difference when Franchez and Pablo are threats…

  43. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    “Never too soon to bitch about tomorrow’s….”
    Probably same as tonight, *maybe* Guillen back in is all.

  44. delmardennis said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Hillsborough or Danville? I’d have to choose Danville just for the fact that I have a hard time pronouncing “Hillsborough.” Damn “s-b-r” sticks in my mouth.

    • Cal_Stim25 said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:38 pm

      hills-bore-o

  45. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    According to soph on the Splash, FSanchez has the highest I.Q. on the team. I think that’s fairly obvious from that mini-interview

    • Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:36 pm

      Didn’t watch it. Actually, Wilson is said to be the smartest Giant. Don’t recall where I read it but I believe it before I believe that Fruckie is. Another said to be among the smartest is Cain. ( he used to be assailed as a dummie). Huff is obviously a sharp guy. Zits is no bright bulb. I’m going with Wilson smartest, MadBum most disgusting with all the loogers in his glove, and Nate as the dumbest.

      • Cal_Stim25 said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:39 pm

        i dunno, ramon ramirez did pick up a fair fucking ball today.

      • Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:44 pm

        I don’t know, Cal. It puts him in the running, maybe, But Nate has (unofficially, career) swung at 33 balls that have hit him. And tried to stretch one into a double. Gotta go with Nate. And look at him. He looks like The Skulker.

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:54 pm

        If BW is the brightest, he hides it well. If I’m gonna lose brain cells, I’d rather do it with two tumblers of scotch, not from listening to him interviewed ….

  46. stixwiz said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    Nice night for padding the stats. Giants now second in doubles, eighth in HRs, third in hits and seventh in runs scored. But Drrrty did NOT get his tenth victory. Ramirez gets the W. With Phillies, Cards and Reds all losing, Giants are looking good again in the WC race. Facing the Snakes, Clayton Richard put on a show for the Dagos. Only way to take the division is to beat them consistently, with four of the games in north suburban Tijuana.

    Panda and Franchez are raking. That’s HUGE. They keep it up and there may still be a shot at frying the Friars.

  47. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    I’m going over to the Splash and count barryfuckheadforever’s comments
    Can’t read them. Just count

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:35 pm

      Huh. That waste of human existence still had plenty to say.
      Can’t read because I have it on ignore.
      But it still had a plethora of comments.

      It makes one think. Thank God the internet wasn’t around in the 1930’s. We’d all be doomed.
      Goodnight, gentlemen.
      Question mark

  48. snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    For this offensive explosion, I don’t know if it’s the heat, or the Giants are due to break out, or the Reds pitching sux right now, probably a combo of all, but lets hope it continues tomorrow. The Reds pen is stretched now, so the Gmen need to get into it early again manana…

  49. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    Ted, he quit after the 5th inning. I think he needed to get a couple hours in to qualify for his health coverage this month.

  50. stixwiz said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    Jeff Passan on Yahoo Sports baseball coverage has a kickass story about how Jeffrey Luria and his sidekick Samson totally screwed Miami and Dade County out of potentially well over a billion for their new stadium by selling off players, drawing revenue sharing money and poormouthing their assets. He right up and calls em corporate criminals. Though Detroit got Miggy Cabrera and now Cody Ross is with the Giants, these shenanigans, heavily aided and abetted by crimeboss Bud Selig, are giving MLB a bad name.

    Largely because of the stands taken by San Francisco voters, the park at McCovey Cove at China Basin was built with private funding.

    • Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:52 pm

      Stix, I wrote at length on that a couple years ago. I’m not sure Loria can even go to Canada without risking arrest ( from his stint as Expo’s capo) . Not that he’d want to, there are fans who would shoot him on the tarmac.

  51. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    Obviously this is an anomaly. But those kind of games happen occasionally when you have 6-8 players with 20+ HR power.

  52. snarkk said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    Maybe this Cody Ross dude is a blessing dropped into SF’s lap. He’s brought some Marlin hitting karma with him. And if he’s solid at the plate, he shores up another LU spot, so the opposition has to pitch a little more to Franchez and especially Panda. Paraphrasing Norm Crosby, maybe we’ll look back and say getting him was serengepidy…

    • TedSpe said, on August 25, 2010 at 12:02 am

      Just read this.
      Gots to love the Norm Crosby. Bravo, snarkk.
      Now, back into the arms of the perinial morpheus

  53. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    As I posted earlier, the OF next year, barring winter deals, is probably Huff/Torres/Ross.

  54. Michael said, on August 24, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    Torres has now played the equivalent of a full season here.
    561 AB 45 doubles 13 triples 19 HR 101 R 74 RBI 29 SB

    • mrmrbill said, on August 25, 2010 at 5:00 am

      yay Torres! Short list for my own MVP list anyway.

  55. mrsprtdude said, on August 24, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    Thanks for the torres stats.. Did we see a Panda sighting tonight. Homer to 421 sign was a bomb!

  56. mrsprtdude said, on August 24, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    Huff Torres Ross…Who plays 1st? Dunn?

    • TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 11:51 pm

      Yeah, Dunn. Go back to sleep, dude

  57. TedSpe said, on August 24, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    Sorry for the interuption. Got up to take a piss and logged on again to see if there was any…insights.
    Guess not

  58. Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 12:18 am

    Was it Lois who used to post late at night? I miss those. I’m often up until 4 and 5 A.M. Zeke is a poor conversationalist.

  59. mrmrbill said, on August 25, 2010 at 3:34 am

    Funny to figure a “Freddie Sanchez — Stay Hot” thing … but it was something like 8 for 8 past two games, near cycle. Those are some croutons on the salad.
