A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Timmy’s Hair and the MAIN reason he’s Been Losing Lately……

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 26, 2010

I’ve had to do a lot of driving this week, I’ve been catching more of the Idiot and Mac show than usual in the mornings. One of them is gone for the week, not sure which one. Anyway, the remaining idiot has spent a lot of time this week saying he’s getting a TON of emails from fans that are upset about Timmy’s hair and identifying that as his main problem. I know we give him grief about his hair but does anyone here think it’s contributing to his recent streak of mediocrity?

Personally, I don’t think that has anything to do with it and can’t believe there are fans out there who think his hair has become his downfall. But Mac (or Murph) has been talking about it all week. Obsessing on it, really…….

Timmy’s got bigger fish to fry than how often he visits his hair stylist. Tomorrow’s pitcher is Barry Enright. Besides pitching very effectively this year (he’s a “6 inning guy” with a nice ERA of 2.73) he’s also the guy who was 2 for 2 against Tim on July 25th. I hope he’s devised a plan to somehow get Babe Ruth out……

Here’s why Tim has had problems recently: The fact is, Tim isn’t pitching THAT badly. He’s often pitching good enough to give his team a chance to win. But his starts have become a distraction and it’s affecting the focus of the team. That’s why they aren’t hitting in his starts. Everyone is watching the radar gun instead of focusing on their job. I’m expecting the same thing to happen tomorrow–Tim pitches ok but still loses to an inferior pitcher who appears better than he is against our unfocused group. The same thing used to happen to Zito starts a few years ago. I know it seems like I’m giving Tim a free pass here, but I’m not. I’m just raising the possibility that other things are contributing to his recent string of losses. Loose teams who play tight behind you, a tightness YOU brought on with your less-than-CyYoung performances, are not known for being  very productive offenses. Once everyone stops looking at the radar gun (including Tim) and once he gets better location with all his pitches, THAT’S when he’s going to come out of this and start winning games again. His fastball is gone, at least for the rest of this year and at least as we once knew it to be when he first came up. Everyone needs to accept that and just start playing good, focused baseball again……

    First go-round facing “good-looking” young pitchers and a couple months back i’d have cringed for the Giants prospects. But after their performances against a pair of Cincinnati’s prime hopefuls, i’m not too concerned. This isn’t Bengie Molina’s team anymore. The lineup is a far cry from the one starting the season and even quite different from the one going into July.

    Between “good-looking young pitchers” and his hair, his dong and his bony ass, the mancrush element is getting pretty heavy here tonight. Some good girl on girl porn might be helpful.

    Good to see AZ win AND Ian Kennedy the starter. He’s a future All-Star, we miss him. With all the bottom feeders rising up this week, it’s given the G’s a real sweet week, well deserved. Now watch out for snakes in the grass this weekend..

    “Anyone feel like harassing BarryForever now and again, he posts here as WBB.”

    So that bastard is a Dodger fan.

    Hey dudes. off day/slow day. My favorite description of off days is the track’s description of the day when there is no racing: “dark day”. We should start using that here when there’s no baseball…….Some posts went into my spam filter today by mistake, some went there on purpose. I will almost always let you know what’s up if I have to ban you but email me directly if your posts aren’t showing up and you are wondering what’s going on…..

    There aren’t any others.

    It’s been a while. Haiku. Here’s a 5-7-5 for a “dark day” brightened by a Philly loss, an SD loss, and maybe a Redbird defeat:

    Eleven-run charge
    Five-error roller coaster
    Feels like keen spirit

    Max: Boy, do you read between the lines. Yep, i’d just gotten in from a couple hours of up and downhill mowing with my 22″ 2.5 honda. Good exercise, though replete with my daily share of hydrocarbons which are in somewhat short supply here in the Northwoods. Ladies of the evening were out in pretty full force as we’ve been going through a two-month monsoon season. Lottsa bites on my bare back, shoulders and arms. So on coming in, i fixed up some Rubyred with about 3 shots of vodka and hit the computer. That’ll do for the evening, though. Getting hungry and simply swimming in fresh, organic garden veggies.

    Kinda funny reading the other team’s blogs. It’s universal, really. Only the names change: the manager is an idiot and the third base coach a moron. The first base coach is OK. Maybe some of you who haven’t been around baseball as long as I have don’t know who that is. He’s the guy who whispers to the runner on first and then pats his fanny. He’s the one who’s too stupid to be the third base coach, AKA the moron.

    “We are in great haste to construct a magnetic telegraph from Maine to Texas; but Maine and Texas, it may be, have nothing important to communicate.”
    — Henry David Thoreau, “Economy,” Walden; or, Life in the Woods (1854)

    Thoreau sure could have been referring to blogs.

    I hope one day it comes out that Stix is really Soph.

  15. Michael said, on August 26, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    There’s a lot of guys going to be mighty insulted if they ever figger out what Pawlie is saying.

    Flying Squirrels’ last homestand is Labor Day weekend, and I was considering a trip. With Belt up to Fresno, anyone else worth traveling to see?

  17. Michael said, on August 26, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    Actually,it’s impossible, Looie. I shipped to Stix and talked to him.

    Very little snow in Walnut Creek.

    The trifecta is complete: Cards lose!

    Best day off in a while . . .

  21. max808 said, on August 26, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    I was perusing some of the phillies blogs earlier today. Needless to say, they were not happy.

    A few from ‘The Good Phight’.

    “Rarely have I been happier not to have been able to watch a game.”

    “And any of you lurking baffoons who call up WIP wanting to replace Utley and Howard with Valdez/Sweeney/Gload, STFU.

    “So nobody was on base, but they suck for not knocking anyone in? OK.”

  22. DJLoo said, on August 26, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    You’re right, Max. Some guy over there named DJPhoo wants to trade Werth & Utley for Rowand & DeRosa.

  23. Unca Chuck said, on August 26, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    If ‘Good Phight’ dropped a ‘fuckwad’, we’d be on to something.

    One more from the City of Brotherly Love. I like the brevity.

    Ah, Loo you’re an instigator.

    HEY PAWLIE!!!!
    If you were serious, I’ve saved today’s SFChronicle Sporting green for you.
    The issues are:
    1) I have no idea how to forward said green page to you without compromising your anonyminity nor mine. I have no problem with the regulars here knowing who or where I am but I’m a little leary of the creepy fucks, like barryforever, soph and nipper (same thing) what (they think) clandestinely peruse this EXCELLENT blog merely to re-arm themselves with unheralded knowledge acquired thusly in this age of covert accuim. So…
    2)How’m I gonna get this to ya?

    I believe the Bowery Boys has a Whitey and a Chuck in their gang. Whitey and Chuck, talk about two whipping boys.

      I’m a little unclear but I believe Jimmy Carter went to get him out. They asked Bill Clinton first but when he asked “Is she an Asian chick?” they took a different…shall we say…approach

    TF, Ronald Reagan sent you his predictions along with a gift boxed set of Chamomile and Earl Grey.
    Have yourself a party.

    Whitey, Chuck, sure.

    Huh…. I’ve used all of those. Who knew?

    Hell, I’ve even called Mickey all of those names.

      But I was remiss..REMISS! I tell you for one omission.

      • TedSpe said, on August 26, 2010 at 11:20 pm

        ..not to mention, but I believe I will, the various “fucks” that twin is most reknowned for:
        Fuck…: of course, …fuck: one of his best …(name you’re noun)…cklefuck; and my personal favorite:
        Fuckingfuckwell…..fuckheadfuck fuck fuck
        You know? Sometimes, when you’re in the face of genious of obsenity. When you reach a point of thinking to yourself, “This guy writes like Peckinpah makes movies…” you just fuckin’ well know it.
        Enjoy it, lads. And goodnight, gentlemen (huge fucking question mark)

  33. delmardennis said, on August 26, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    It’s 11:30, and I’m currently participating in a mock FF draft. I don’t think my meds are working.
    Maybe I need a haircut.

  34. TedSpe said, on August 26, 2010 at 11:31 pm

    Oops. Post fucking script:

    From Baggarly’s latest piece: “I’m focusing more on the in-between stuff and stuff in my bullpen,” he said. “Other than that, (it’s) just trying to take that bulldog mentality out there that I used to have. Just shove it up your “… whatever, you know what I mean?”


    Let down your hair and go get ’em tomorrow.
