    Shit. Gino almost had it . . .

    He’s quite a sight out there in LF though . . .

  3. snarkk said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    BW’s beard DOES get darker every game…

  7. unca chuck said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    Yeeesh. Too fat, but he got the out.

    Another f bomb . . .

    Ballgame!

  9. macdog said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

  10. wswinb4igo said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Congrats…

  11. freshtodef80 said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Yeah, Baby!!! Great save by Blackbeard!

  12. Bozo said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    OK Cubs announcer (not Brenly) said “The Giants relievers are sporting some nice beards. Stay thirsty my friends.”

    Good win.

  13. unca chuck said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Yeah, baby!

    Since these guys have been in 1st place (3 games?) they’ve scored a grand total of 2 runs . . .

  14. PawlieKokonuts said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    yes we can and yes we did

  15. alleykat said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Hell yes !!!! Sweey win to start the roadie….Pitchers and Posey POTG!!!

  16. DJLoo said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Pizza & whore time!

    • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:39 pm

      That started in the 8th

      • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:40 pm

        Oh, you meant the team. I was talking about mysel…nevermind

  17. snarkk said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Big, big win. As bad as the August pitching was, it’s just the opposite in September. Hat’s off to Cain, Pen, and Posey…

  18. Michael said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    How great to almost book that the pen will pitch a shut out.

  19. PawlieKokonuts said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    Big win, considering the Cubs have been knocking the cover off the ball. Go, Dodgers! [just for tonight]

    • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:41 pm

      Throw up a little in your mouth there?

  20. delmardennis said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    HR or Bust once again. Crying shame that the Big Horse won’t get credit with the W, but he goes to the winners circle and has his picture taken in my book. Outstanding effort tonight. The Big Horse has been nothing short of fanmotherfuckingtastic down the stretch. You just get the feeling it’s a W in the book when it’s turn. I can’t wait till he runs again.

    • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:43 pm

      Gee, dennis. Any more horse racing metaphors?

  21. unca chuck said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Yeah the Cubs were on fire coming into this game.

    Hell of a job by Cain and the pen.

    Yeah, these guys are really bringing it at crunch time.

    The hitting has to come around a LITLE?

    • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:45 pm

      Yes. A litle

  22. DJLoo said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    If there’s a PS rotation, and he’s had his rest, you gotta wonder if Cain moves up……maybe all the way up?

    • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:46 pm

      Nope. Still Lincecum

  23. DJLoo said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Chuck musta loved Y.A. Title…

    • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:49 pm

      And hearing Charlie Daniels play his fidle

      • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:50 pm

        Or hearing Frank Gorshin say “Ridle me this”

      • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:50 pm

        Okay.
        I went on a litle too much. I’m done

      • DJLoo said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:51 pm

        And Montana to Rice over the midle

      • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:53 pm

        Or Linda Lovelace saying”I think…” No. I said I’m done

    • delmardennis said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:55 pm

      Chuck wasn’t even born yet when Title played for the Niners. Chuck’s a Brodie guy.
      Me? Steve DeBerg. I’ve had a rough life.

  24. TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Flav, just saw the POTG. Your caption? Excellent!!

  25. xootsuit said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    Posey, Lincecum and Bumgarner get a lot of attention as great high 1st round SF draft picks (and for good reason). Cain, as a lower 1st rounder, too (also good reason). But what about J Sanchez (27th fucking round) or Brian Wilson (24th fucking round in 2003, following Tommy John surgery the year before). There’s something unusual about this group of young home-grown ass kickers and good-natured bad-ass vets. Their names hardly show up in the league-leader reports. Yet here they are, near the top of the league. Once again, fun game.

    • DJLoo said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:59 pm

      Not according to Kuiper, Xoot. He refuses to hide his disdain for the constant low scoring yawners. Kinda funny…

  26. stixwiz said, on September 21, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    NLW 101 introductory course tonight for the Cubs and their ace Big Z. The real Big Z happened to the sound asleep Cubs bats tonight courtesy of the soporific spells of Matt the Horse and the 7-8-9ers. Check out the stats:
    -Cain: only 49 strikes but just a single BB and a pair of well-spaced singles in an 82 pitch 6 inning outing.
    ERA as of tonight 3.00
    -Ramirez ERA .073
    -Romo ERA 2.30
    -Wilson ERA 1.84
    Need more: How bout WHIP numbers. Totally Obscene.
    -Matt the Horse 1.08
    -Ramirez 0.97
    -Romo 0.99
    -Wilson 1.19
    These numbers are under protest by the MLB batters union.
    Full action by the union was blocked beyond the Ivy by one Gerald Posey from a little burg in Georgia. Buster Open ROY.

  27. DJLoo said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    DeBerg had one unconscious season for KC, Del, then reverted to form in the playoffs…

    • delmardennis said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:04 pm

      Loo, I think we’re gonna have to make a little wager here with our two teams playing this Sunday. Your team is 2-0, mine is 0-2. I think that’s worth about two touchdowns, don’t you? Not to mention I have Chuck rooting for the Niners as well. Might need to tack on an extra three for that alone.

  28. delmardennis said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Saunders throwing a gem for the Snakes [no jinx] Rockies blow Donkey Kong.

  29. DJLoo said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    Yeah, we’ll have to come up with something, Del.
    BTW, Cassel sucks and the Chiefs are awful.

  30. wswinb4igo said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    rox lose

  31. freshtodef80 said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    D-Backs Win!!!

  32. delmardennis said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Snakes win! Snakes win!

  33. giant head said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    2.5 baby!

  34. stixwiz said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    I wonder what the reasonably modern (post 1950) record is for one team being involved in 1-0 games in a season. An effect of being in all these close games will possibly come into play in contests of a similar nature with teams who are more accustomed to slug-fests and general bar-room brawls. The Reds and Yankees immediately leap to mind as outfits built best for mutual battering matches. Maybe they lose their edge in the shavers.

    With that single weekend win over Milwaukee the Giants staff edged the Friars for best ERA in MLB with a 3.45 to 3.46. Not long ago, after the August adjustments, the staff had fallen briefly to 4th in the league behind Atlanta and St. Louis as well, and, if my memory glands aren’t sagging too much also behind the bunch from the backend of the Bay over in the other league.

    September brought Timmy back from beyond and suddenly the entire rotation began changing course from the dog-days. Most recently the Milwaukee game brought Zito back into the winning column. The hardluck loser collar has now been flipped over to Bumgarner who faces Dumpster on Thursday. Maybe SF hitters will be popping on more than one cylinder by then.

    Bochy has been resting the rotation on six or maybe seven innings performance and the Pen has proved mightier than the stick. Rotation is getting primed for gearing the Halloween Machine.

    These 1-0 games are good for the pharmaceutical and liquor industries, but could soon wreak havoc on medical plans with a large demographic of Bay Area enrollees. We cannot count on winning more than a small percentage of these batteried into submission games, but Chicago just got a taste of the best pitching in baseball and one brief Buster Open moment.

  35. giant head said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    Stix, ESPN just made reference to some kind of record for 1-0 games, but I am half awake…

    Screw the Dodgers…

  36. giant head said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    The thing we have to guarantee, and maybe it niw takes 7 more wins and 93 total, is to have a better record than the Reds. Then it does not matter who ends up with the Wild Card. Either Atlanta will come to SF or the Reds!

    Go Giants…I smell a Wrigley Sweep!!!

  37. DJLoo said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    looks like they’re 3-5 in 1-0 games this year.
    Gibson alone was 4-2 in 1-0 games in ’68.

    • xootsuit said, on September 21, 2010 at 10:08 pm

      “Gibson alone” has a certain ring to it.

  38. giant head said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    92 wins I mean..told you I was half awake 😦 time to go to bed..ciao!

  39. stixwiz said, on September 21, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    Maybe i’m slow, but in the AP coverage of the game Bochy was cited as saying that Torres may be back for the weekend series in Denver. He has already been taking some light hitting practice according to the story and has been doing a bit of running for a few days.

    If anyone can sparkplug the team into scoring more than one (or less) runs in a game it is Torrid Torres. Just hoping he’s not gonna push it too hard too fast. Even though he’s up for Free Agency i sure wanna see that little dude back in full flow next season.

    Meanwhile its Drrrrrty against Randy Wells tomorrow followed by MadBum facing the Dumpster dude. Neither of those Cubs pitchers have the presence of Zambrano. Giants drew some walks tonight. Next couple games should be good for more hits than this one. Put some walks and hits together, add a moonshot or two and maybe the Giants up their 2.5 game lead hitting Denver. Also in the meantime, Snakebit Rox is also a nice prospect to ponder.

    Michael, if you don’t get a chance to read this tonight, I’ll repost tomorrow. I’ll also email you this but I wanted everyone else to get a chance to read this. From TwinCities.com Pioneer Press:

    Hal Scott, former sports director at WCCO-TV, died Tuesday. It was Scott who hired current WCCO sports director Mark Rosen out of high school as an intern 40 years ago.

    “He had a straight-ahead approach and was a man of strong convictions, never wavering,” Rosen said. “Hal was very opinionated. He went after Calvin Griffith for the firing of Billy Martin (as Twins manager following the 1969 season). He taught me more about life than anybody I’ve met.”

    • TedSpe said, on September 21, 2010 at 10:16 pm

      Actually, as I noted to Michael, I needn’t repost this necessarilly. But it would be nice if you all were able to read it so I just might.
      Well, I’m done for the evening with you all, lads.
      The pizza and whores are awaiting
      Goodnight gentlemen (question mark)

  41. Michael said, on September 21, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    Thanks, I didn’t see that, just the obit…I can’t go back for the services, one of my brothers will speak. Lots of great stories about Hal, some even rated PG. Fighter, biker, drinker, fly fisherman extraordinaire…
