A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Sometimes you just have to take a walk…..

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 5, 2010

That’s what I did after Gibbons hit that bomb. Not a long walk, just down the driveway and up the street and back. Apparently that walk worked wonders. Cain settled down and we go on to hit 4 bombs to win the game. There are almost no words to describe last night’s win. Either you saw it or you didn’t and I have never seen a game like that–that one was an original. Uribe has to be POTG but if was ever to be a shared last night was the night—Posey, Renteria, Burrell, Ross and Uribe. And you have to give Cain huge props for settling down after giving up that bomb to the ridiculous Gibbons…….

Torre stubbornly using Broxton again. Baha. Classic look of defeat on Broxton’s face after Uribe’s hit. Broken and beaten….

Who loses 9 games in a row at this time of year and can honestly maintain the confidence to actually believe they can win their division?

There is no team above us. The only thing that is stopping us from steamrolling this division is proper execution. That, and God hating us when Zito pitches……..

    Torres and Huff totaly carried the team from May through July. I think they’ll both rebound. Good thing now is the team has enough to withstand their slumps.

    Alright- let’s get a rally going and put this thing away.

    Great close up shot of Lasorda snarffing down a huge carton of lemon ice cream / sherbert, bullshitting with his mouth full. Only about 2000 calories. I tell ya’, when he’s gone, it won’t be the same without that friggin SOB in the stands…

  4. unca chuck said, on September 5, 2010 at 6:22 pm

    That was a nice inning by Nasty.

    Just started watching . . .

    I’m here, let’s score some runs . . .

  5. willied said, on September 5, 2010 at 6:22 pm

    Sanchez looks dialed in…breaking ball in the dirt has LA off balance and unhittable tonite.

  6. unca chuck said, on September 5, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Torres is scuffling . . .

    I hate these 3 pitch innings.

  7. snarkk said, on September 5, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Why doesn’t Torres try a drag bunt to get on? He’s scuffling, try something different for Kreissakes…

  8. zumarust said, on September 5, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    It’s been enough years now, that Lasorda doesn’t bother me much anymore. The Dodgers have become a mediocre organization. He’s a reminder, both good and bad, for their organization of good times and how long they’ve been in a rut since then.

  9. unca chuck said, on September 5, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    12 pitches, 2 innings . . .

    Stay thirsty, Nasty . . .

  10. Michael said, on September 5, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    Dirty has pitched very well with three balls on the hitter…

  11. delmardennis said, on September 5, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    What do you do with an elephant with three balls? Walk him and pitch to the rhino.

    That joke works great with 6 yo’s. In other words, should be a big hit here.

    • Bozo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:12 pm

      Four balls? Four balls? Walk with pride laddie.

  12. wswinb4igo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    Only thing you could ask for is less pitches so he could stay in…

    Adios pelota! At a BBQ, just snuck in house to catch some of game, this is the first play I see. Outstanding!

    Juan damn good killer instinct. Oooooooohribe!

  23. wswinb4igo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:07 pm

    and he hurt himself with the foul ball…

  24. delmardennis said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    Bozo, good to see you make it through Earl. Catalina from “My Name is Earl” could come blowing through my port any time.

    • Bozo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:26 pm

      Still standing Den, a few trees down but not to bad. Had one cat get out before the storm. Yup. folks around here know I’m not from here, when I’m out at 3Am, during a hurricane, calling for my cat .

      Now I’d like to see a category four Burrell come on (he seems to have gone like Earl to a category one).

  25. wswinb4igo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    Tremendous Dirty…

  26. DJLoo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    If there’s a playoff roster, Zito & Rowand ain’t on it…

  27. stixwiz said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    LaBumbos complaining about Drrrrrrrty treatment through seven.

  28. delmardennis said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Good morning, good afternoon and good night.

  29. stixwiz said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    LaBumbos now complaining about the stench their bats have engendered. Something about not liking the aRomo.

  30. Michael said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    They have two opportunities to skip a Bumgarner start. Unless they do that, the plan is probably to shut him down for the post season, meaning you’d get the Zitster.

  31. zumarust said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    No drama, please!

  32. alleykat said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    B Weezy has that Get the Fuck out of my way look coming in.Says here he blows atleast 2 Bums away to close this one out.

  33. Michael said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    No co-POTG tonight. Dirty….

    • ferrethead said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:58 pm

      Couldn’t agree more, twinnie! Sanchez was AWESOME!!!

  34. ferrethead said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    One back – Dodgers SUCK!!!!!

  35. wswinb4igo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Congrats….sweet

  36. freshtodef80 said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    One game back!!!

    SWEET

  38. wswinb4igo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    His last couple starts have been…you know, amazing

    How sweet IT is!

  40. alleykat said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    One back..Dodgers SUCK…That’s a big WOO HOO Ferrett!!!!

  41. stixwiz said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Tonight’s production by Sanchez and company puts the Giants into the catbird seat. Labor Day tomorrow. 25 games to go. Giants one game behind the Padres who have lost ten in a row. Tell me i’m not dreaming.

  42. delmardennis said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Better performance than his no-no given the circumstances, no question.
    Simply masterful performance, and just downright nasty. Sanchez certainly picked a good night to get his first win vs LA. Bravo.

  43. wswinb4igo said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    Dirty is POTG…Uribe is POTSeries

  44. alleykat said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    Hey i nailed my 2K’s by Beachboy in the 9th.You just see it in his eyes coming in,that nobody was gonna hit my stuff.Great Job Dirty….Should be in the lead for the 3rd pitching spot in the Playoffs.

  45. blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    Double woo hoo 🙂

  46. stixwiz said, on September 5, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    Nice symmetry to the numbers. Sanchez goes double figures in wins with his tenth. For ten-pitch (8 strike) Wilson its his 40th Save. Sanchez and Kuroda end the game with identical ERAs at 3.39. But Drrrrrty pitches for the Giants and has gone 10-8. Kuroda’s with the LaBumbos so he’s 10-12. Collectively that makes the two of em 20-20. Nice to be on the upside of this affair.

  47. delmardennis said, on September 5, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    “They have two opportunities to skip a Bumgarner start. Unless they do that, the plan is probably to shut him down for the post season, meaning you’d get the Zitster.”

    WTF are you talking about? If they went Zitshit over Bum there would be a goddamn riot. If Zito continues his horrendous slide, no way they could say with a straight face that putting him in the rotation gives them the best chance of winning. Any respectable and true Giant fan would call for Sabean’s immediate departure. Even you, sir. Even you.

    • Michael said, on September 5, 2010 at 8:34 pm

      Listen up, idiot. I’m giving you the scenario. You are not going to get Bumgarner in the postseason unless they cut his innings now.I’m the LAST guy wanting Zitfuck. As usual, I’m just iving you fuckshits some info. Now shut your cupcake hole and pay attention,Birtherfuck.

    • Michael said, on September 5, 2010 at 8:38 pm

      You are seriously confused on what constitutes editorial content vs. news. From your correspondence, I have zero doubt that it’s a medication issue. You are REAL fucking close to the Big Sleep, my traitorous friend.

    • ferrethead said, on September 5, 2010 at 8:17 pm

      Even if he is a stinkin’ Dodger, you’ve got to root for the guy, kinda…

  49. wswinb4igo said, on September 5, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    I think everyone can now openly root for the dodgers the next 3 days…

  50. PawlieKokonuts said, on September 5, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    I stayed up for this one. A pleasurable penance. A tidy gem.

  51. DJLoo said, on September 5, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    There’s always been guys like this. There was the HOF Billy Williams, and the Billy Williams who debuted at age 36 with the ’69 Pilots.

  52. Michael said, on September 5, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Padilla/Latos tomorrow. San Diego loses that and you can capitalize the “T” in trouble for the Pads…

  53. delmardennis said, on September 5, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Zito/Bumgarner post-season. Sabean chooses the former, and you can capitalize the “F” in fired for Sabean.

  54. delmardennis said, on September 5, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    And I don’t wan’t to hear about any shit that they’re thinking about Madison’s health and future with the ball club. If by extending him an extra 40 innings or so in the post-season would cause him to injure himself thus requiring Tommy John surgery BUT would also guarantee us winning a WS, they’d be on the phone right now making him an appt. with Dr. James Andrews.

  55. Michael said, on September 5, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    What you want to hear is irrelevant, Dennis. The decision on the postseason rotation better be the last fucking thing on Bochy’s mind right now.

  56. DJLoo said, on September 5, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    Still a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest

  57. wswinb4igo said, on September 5, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    whats that saying…don’t put the apples before the cart?

    • blade3colorado said, on September 6, 2010 at 6:53 am

      I thought it was the “horse” before the cart.

  58. EdGdsnInExile said, on September 5, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Sanchez magnificent, Pablo on the money, Uribe again, Fontenot laying out, Wilson so focused. So many good things to this game. But what I liked was the sense that everyone has found their role going forward, particularly the late additions. Winning help people do that. But I give Boche a lot of credit; he is maximizing the talent, and minimizing exposure of the negatives.

  59. unca chuck said, on September 5, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    Well, except for Guillen . . .
