A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

1973? And leave the park the way it is……

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 25, 2010

After that pathetic, team-wide, lay down on Sun these last 2 games have been awesome.  I was stunned to read that this is the first back-to-back double digit runs scored at home since 1973.  That’s crazy. Of course it’s hard to get to 10 runs in a baseball game but is it 37 years hard to get their consecutively? The Yankees probably do that at least a couple of times a year…..

Did anyone catch Barbieri crying about moving the fences in yesterday? His argument is that good hitters don’t want to come here because of the dimensions. I don’t think for a second that the Giants would consider altering this perfect park so I’m not worried about Barbieri’s rant. There isn’t a reason in the world to move the fences in. In fact, I would argue that a triple into the alleyway is MORE exciting than a homerun– will the guy get to third? How many runs score? And then the play at the plate! And so what if Huff has lost a few bombs at AT&T.  His home OPS this year is .906. Last year his home OPS was .784. I think he can live with the dimensions. And I was at that inside-the-park job he had earlier this year, it was one of the most exciting plays of the year…….

I’ve argued this point before. Sabean drafts backwards. He focuses on pitchers because that’s his thing and his results certainly can’t be questioned. But he would have no problem signing FA pitchers to pitcher here. Pitchers love ATT. He gets rebuffed by the big boppers, but if he DRAFTED hitters they would have to play here. And most hitters find out that ATT is NOT death to a bat. OPS’s and batting averages usually go up at ATT because of the big outfield, the fielders simply can’t cover the ground they can at other smaller parks…..

Ted Sillanpaa still sucks……

    Where the fuck was B-Wheezy on the backup? Jose’s throw was so offline, I think the runner still advances, but no excuse.

    • Unca Chuck said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:03 pm

      He WAS back there. He played the carom. The throw was about 15′ up the line.

    I’ll take 5 errors v 15 hits w/11 runs
    not gladly mind you

    Wow, what a roller coaster.

  4. Unca Chuck said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:02 pm

    Criminy!!!!

    More weirdness . . .

    Panda CAN’T do that . . .

  5. delmardennis said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    Fontenot! Helluva a grab, right back at ’em with Huff with the scoop.
    Let’s win this thing in the B9. I can’t take this shit.

  6. Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:04 pm

    My health has dictated this, as my friends here know .Fuck off, lowlife.

    • Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:11 pm

      I* have* retired as much as Favre. As the news changes, as it does often, I’ve had to make many changes in the last few years. But that’s irrelevant now, Jediot won’t be bothering anyone soon.

      • eddacker415 said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:18 pm

        you stick aroound, dude
        we are all in your corner

      • Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 6:02 pm

        I can’t do it anymore, but back in the day when I ran my servers, I had software that could indeed get the IP addresses even from the SFGate blogs. It actually led, indirectly, for me getting busted on my WOW private gambling club. Long story, that part of it, but what’s relevant here: a regular here, not “Ed”,posts, or did then, from a correctional facility.

      • Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 6:14 pm

        In that vein, interestingly, Soph’s server was “CA, Walnut Creek, “SBC Internet Services”…

      • Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 6:20 pm

        While she claimed to be in Philly. Impossible.

      • delmardennis said, on August 25, 2010 at 6:56 pm

        I responded to your comment, but it’s up the page. This thread’s time stamp is screwed.

      • Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 7:07 pm

        I didn’t say they were the same. Just put up what her server was. I don’t know Yogi’s or BFE’s server. None of them are the one who posted from a correctional facilty, though. That is a person, not “Ed”, who posts here as recently as this afternoon.
        As far as your WOW comment, you’re fucking nuts. That was an online comepetition, guys made thousands of dollars, I got vigorish, in effect. A nice money maker for me.. it was in fact a “welsher” who got me busted. Busted in the sense that I had to shut it down.

  7. Unca Chuck said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:04 pm

    No shit . . .

    Weez played the carom on the throw, Dennis. It was so far offline there was no way he could have gotten to it.

  8. Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:05 pm

    My health has dictated this, as my friends here know Fuck off, lowlife.

  9. swickman said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:05 pm

    We’re all glued to an amazing game and you’re poring through past posts to find a gotcha on twin. I think that says it all.

  10. 3bagger said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    C’mon Pablo! Let’s end this one now!

  11. Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    You’ll be taken care of very soon, Jediot. Get your bile in now.

  12. Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    Enjoy, Jediot. because YOU won’t be.

  13. Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    This reply thing is all fucked up.

  14. max808 said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    Hang on guys. We’re down to Lopez in the pen. Votto, Rolen due up.

  15. delmardennis said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    From Baggs:

    The Giants have scored 11 runs in 3 consecutive games for the 1st time since June 3-5, 1953 — vs. Reds and Cubs at Polo Grounds.

    Shit, I think TF was still knee-high in knickers.

  16. DJLoo said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    What are you gonna do, shoot him on the causeway?

    • Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:15 pm

      Oh, he’ll just disappear.

      • TedSpe said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:19 pm

        I think it’s a done deal

    • delmardennis said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:18 pm

      “Look what they did to my boy.”

      At least Santino got to listen to the Bobby Thomson game before he went.

    • Michael said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:18 pm

      Don’t be so nelly. You slandered Torres and got some back. Chill out.

  17. PawlieKokonuts said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    I really, really wish we won it bottom of the 9th. At the very least, no matter what happens, this has the feel of victory. That’s not to be sentimental. It really sends a message: we will not give up. To us, and the opponents. But we all want a W. (It is a little difficult enduring the Reds announcers, isnt it?)

  18. wswinb4igo said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:18 pm

    wow…what a game

  19. TedSpe said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:18 pm

  21. delmardennis said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Cody! Cody! Cody! Does Fred Lew make that play?

  22. Unca Chuck said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Swick nailed it . . .

  23. eddacker415 said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    8 pitch inning for Lopez
    nice

  24. Unca Chuck said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    Flav, can you start a new thread???

    This one’s hosed . . .

  25. Bozo said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    Give it a break dude, this is an incredible comeback.

    • TedSpe said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:23 pm

      That’s “mouf”

        Yeah you right.

    Reading “Homer & Langley” by E.L. Doctorow. Like Langley, of the famed Collyer brothers, I tend to collect newspapers, tho’ not quite as obsessively. Will someone please save me a copy of tomorrow’s Chronicle?

    • TedSpe said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:23 pm

      Sure, I can do that

  27. delmardennis said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    Damn, when Fontenot runs he looks like Ernest J. Keebler after a run for the border.
    Yo quiero Taco Bell!

  31. delmardennis said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    There’s a new post up “Extra Innings” this one is all screwy.

  32. PawlieKokonuts said, on August 25, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    Classic game. One for the archives. We are blessed to be able to commiserate here as a community. Really. Thanks, Flavor & Flappers.

    So if I’m connecting all the • • • • • • here correctly…BFE, Soph and Yogi are all the same person who still post here under “??? Name” and once did so from a correctional facility?

    World of Warcraft private gambling club? I thought I needed to get out more often.

    • freshtodef80 said, on August 25, 2010 at 7:07 pm

      BFE is a Dodger fan that lives in San Francisco.
