A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

And on the 5th Day, God Created a Loss…..

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 14, 2010

Here it comes. Can you feel it? Right now it’s just a few leaves blowing around outside, the faintest wind is starting to kick up. But it’s coming.  By 7:10pm he’ll stride to the top of the hill in the middle of a raging hurricane of bad luck, broken promises and fake hustle. The team hasn’t won a game he’s pitched in since August 11th…….

I was surprised to look at the overall team win totals when each of the 4 starts have pitched this year.

Dirrrrty: team has won 19 times that he’s pitched

Timmy: also 19 times

Cain: 16 wins

Zito: 14 wins…..

The team has won 14 times when Zito’s pitched this year? I had to check to see if those were the team wins for his career. It wasn’t, it was for 2010. Zito is kryptonite to the “W”. And yet, somehow we’ve won 14 times this year when he’s taken the hill.

The team has won games that Zito has pitched in this year. Just keep reminding yourself of that fact tonight if you start thinking about “Zito’s Law” during tonight’s game……..

    I’m quite convinced it won’t be Cody Ross.

  2. delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    You can make those checks payable to Dennis…

    Huff was on that . . .

    • Nipper said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:17 pm

      bleep!

  4. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    Sanchez was running back to 1st.

  5. max808 said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    St Louis seems to have packed it in. That’s good news for SD and Colo.

  6. bigflavor said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Sanchez was just doing that fake-move back to first to try to disrupt the dp. It had No chance of working in that situation— another component of fake hustle— do something that has no chance of working but it looks like a real clever move

  7. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Amazing how the Dodgers just hand out Piazza’s #31 to anybody. Sounds familiar.

  8. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    I think the Giants won the shortest game in history. Like 58 minutes or something.

  9. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    That was perhaps the gayest car commercial I’ve ever seen.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that

    • unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:21 pm

      Who would drive that gay-ass thing?

      It’s a clown car

      • Bozo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:25 pm

        You got something against clown cars, Chuck?

        We do pack a lot into them.

  10. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    Just waiting for one of these ball dude to break a hip or some shit.

  11. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    That would just slay K & K. Almost as funny as an “ugly finder” cracking open someone’s skull.

  12. willied said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    That was pretty funny…Kruk just caught himself in time before “A blunt would be a good…” yeah, it would be a good idea, almost anytime Zito is on the mound. Would one of those be a first for our Mike? Would it get him to stop reminding us of Zito lack of support etc.?

  13. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    F) Giants

  14. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    One out.

  15. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    Oh shit.

  16. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    I’m in my happy place
    I’m in my happy place

  17. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    Nibble nibble nibble

  18. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Ya know, I’m glad bases are loaded. At least 4 chances to get an out

    • TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:32 pm

      Polly Hall of Fame, am I

  19. delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    The ONE guy you don’t want up there…

  20. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Can;t let this fuck beat you.

  21. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Well, that went well

  22. Bozo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Did I mention that I hate Casey Fucking Blake

  23. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    There you go. Zito’s luck . . .

  24. Michael said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Fuck! Uribe had to make that play.

  25. delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    God is a fucking Dodger fan.

    • TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:35 pm

      That’s going too far, dennis

      • delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:38 pm

        No, I’m just trying to balance things out. If when all the players praise and thank God for when things go well, I’m here to call his ass out when they don’t. No one is beyond reproach in my book.

  26. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:34 pm

  27. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    Blake IS the guy you want up there. He usually does that.

    Oh joy.

  28. James said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    That kind of E is not something we’ve seen a lot of this year . . . shit

  29. bigflavor said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    A fortuitous bounce off the mound only to turn into an error. Zitos law…

  30. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    Casilla? Mr. Wild?

  31. alleykat said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    More shit ass bad luck.Easy play by Uribe and he butchers it.

  32. willied said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Dang, that’s too bad, had a chance to get out of it, bad break, but Zits is now gone.
    I was thinking about this on my way to work, where I get paid by the hour….what would the numbers on that stat look like for Zito? 30 starts that last an hour and a half….make it an even 50 hours of work on the mound. For how many million in a season? At $15 mil, that works out to…..? 300K an hour?

  33. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Ain’t no fucking way Zito blames Uribe
    Cassillio just got fucked

  34. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    There you go.

  35. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    But came back

  36. max808 said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Zito blames himself for hitting the 8 hitter.

  37. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Zito’s Law?
    Zito’s Satanic Verses

  38. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    Ishikawa will come through if he gets a chance tonight…

  39. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    Yo, take your McDonalds game summary and stick it up your
    ask for some ketchup, will ya?

    • TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:43 pm

      And though I kiss your hand madaam,

      • Bozo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:50 pm

        Or, Spike Jones. I Kiss your hand madam cause I can’t stand your breath.

  40. stixwiz said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    That stance of Rowand’s drives me crazy. Absolutely looks as if he has taken a dump in his bloomers.

  41. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Fuckity fuck fuck.

  42. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Let’s face one fact
    The Dodgers know they’re fucked for the year.
    But they really, REALLY, don’t want tot lose to the Giants
    Ever

  43. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Lay off Zito tonight, dumblefuckalayas…

    • TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:48 pm

      It’s not Zito’s pitching, moron. It;s his fucking Satanic curse!!

      • TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:50 pm

        And besides, I’ve hated Zito for around 8 years now so I’ll fucking hate him any motherfucking time I like

    • unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:49 pm

      Now pinch htting for Twinfa-fan fan-fan, DJLoo-loo-loo-loo

      • TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:51 pm

        Whatever. Zito’s a piece of shit

  44. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Padres win

  45. delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    That ball had NONE chance of getting by Blake.

    Nice hit, Cody. C’mon ya little runt!

  46. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    Extra bases? Fucking pods win dammit.

    Come on!

  47. alleykat said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Agree Ted…The Dodgers no way will ever want to lose to us.But they will mail it in against the Pads/Rocks,to assure that we don’t make it.

    • TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:54 pm

      yup

  48. Bozo said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    So Jabba the Hut grew a mustache?

  49. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    There’s Ray Ratto. Looking the picture of health, as usual. Looking for gay porn on the Chron’s paycheck

  50. Michael said, on September 14, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Not affixing blame but the miscommunication on 3-2 to Ethier was a huge mistake. Rarely see that happen in such a key situation.

  51. alleykat said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    Heart of the order looked like shit that inning.And Fuck Furcal faking a toss to the fans on Burrell’s foul out.

    • DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:13 pm

      I saw that, but who knows what the fan might’ve called him?

  52. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    Okay.
    I just got off a conference call with Max Von Sydow and Jason Miller.
    If we all pitch in $8 (they haven’t worked in a while) they’re willing to fly out to San Francisco and perform an exorcism on Zito’s demonic issues.
    For $5, they’ll do it with Skype.
    Gentlemen (?)? Any takers?

    • delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:13 pm

      Only if we feed Zito with French Onion beforehand. I’ve never been a fan of split pea.

  53. Bozo said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    Bottom of the order coming up. Three runs this (half) inning would be very good. “You Can Do It”.

  54. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Soooooooooooooo, Broxton for the 9th?

    • delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:15 pm

      Are you kiddin’ me?

  55. alleykat said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    No way Chuck,Not the way Kershaw’s pitching.

  56. James said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Zero walks for Kershaw, 77 entering the game.

  57. snarkk said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    Pablo is near automatic out RHed…

  58. zumarust said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    To quote that old phrase- Kershaw has handcuffed the Giants tonight. Everybody’s getting jammed. Pablo’s absolutely worthless in this situation. And Rowand is Rowand. Plus the pitcher. So it’s like trying to win with 6 hitters.

  59. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    Fuck guys. I’m hoping. Praying. KIDDING . . .

  60. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    We lose on another one-hitter it’ll suck balls.

  61. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    I;m not kidding about that . . .

  62. delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Have I mentioned that our lineup is a piece of shit? Bochy starting Rowand was a fer sure L.
    We had no chance. None. Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch.

  63. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Homer time Guillen . . .

  64. zumarust said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    “Don’t sweat this dudes. I have had an epiphany and it is Aaron rowand. He’s healthy (he’s gotta be he hasn’t done shit for months) and torres and his slump have been taken out by this random appendectomy. I’m telling you, this is fate. Rowand will lead the charge to a division title. Book it.”

    I’m pretty sure BF was high when he wrote this.

  65. delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    These cocksuckers are gonna win with only ONE goddamn hit. I could just cry.

  66. snarkk said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Kershaw’s been in a rythm all game. Nobody steps out on him, make him wait. Why?…

  67. TedSpe said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Let it out, dennis

  68. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    Maybe “epiphany” is how BF spells “lobotomy”.

  69. unca chuck said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    And we got Beaver’s mom tomorrow . . .

  70. delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    Huff has NO chance of hitting a walk-off HR. here. NO chance.

  71. DJLoo said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    That was fat one. Shit!

  72. delmardennis said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Well that one sucked.

  74. ferrethead said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Why the fuck can’t they score for Zito?!?!?!?! A guy shouldn’t feel like he has to be freakin’ perfect EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME he takes the mound.

    FUCK THIS FUCKING GAME!!!!!! Gah!

    Oh, dear. That wasn’t terribly lady-like. Bleah…

    • Bozo said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:37 pm

      We’ll get em tomorrow FH. May I suggest a shot of tequila (or maybe 30) to calm the nerves?

  75. alleykat said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Fuck this game.

    • ferrethead said, on September 14, 2010 at 9:36 pm

      Great minds…
