A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Players We Know Who We Don’t Remember

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on November 14, 2010

Dan Quisenberry, Mark Portugal, Kevin Bass, Phil Garner……

I know who all four are but have no recollection of them playing for us. But they did. Of the four, who do you remember the least? These guys all played for us. I swear. You could look it up…..

    Quisenberry? Side arm for KC?

  2. Giant Head said, on November 14, 2010 at 7:16 am

    Dan Quisenberry and Phil Garner? Surely you jest Flav…

  3. Giant Head said, on November 14, 2010 at 7:21 am

    Regarding your Carlos Pena post, from what I have seen of this Mychal Urban, he may qualify as the biggest Douche of the sports world…he seems to be the real protypical AL player. If the Red Sox don’t land a trade for Gonzales, I could see them offering more than a $3 mill deal his way…

  4. max808 said, on November 14, 2010 at 7:22 am

    How do you quantify? Make it all of the above.

  5. delmardennis said, on November 14, 2010 at 7:42 am

    I don’t even know who the hell Kevin Bass was/is let alone that he played for the Giants. I know that Kevin Boss is the starting TE for the NY football Giants. But no clue about Bass.

    Quite a few bad jokes could be had at his expense about giving him the hook if he was a pitcher.

  6. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 7:44 am

    Looks like it was the Last Hurrah for Quisenberry and Garner, Bass and Portugal had some minimal success here. I remember Portugal pretty well, wasn’t he a guy they couldn’t hit , so “kill two birds”.. kind of thing?
    Hey, give Urban this: he picked them for the World Series back in ST… only pundit I recall doing it…

  7. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:21 am

    Said to be heavy interest in both Huff and Uribe…. so what’s Plan B if they lose both? Big push for Crawford and a first baseman? Uggla trade? Kids: Belt, Neal, our Crawford?

  8. Macdog said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:28 am

    That’s what I recall of Portugal, too, always beating the Giants so they went and got him. Bass was a pretty good OF with the ‘Stros. Scrap Iron? I have absolutely no recollection of Garner with the Giants.

  9. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:31 am

    What would this do to you ?:
    Torres CF
    Fruckie 2B
    Sandoval 3B
    Posey C
    Ross RF
    Belt 1B
    Neal LF
    Crawford SS

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:34 am

      Neal and Crawford way too iffy. Darren Ford? Some dark horse?

    • delmardennis said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:50 am

      I could see that being the starting lineup. The starting lineup 3/15 vs the Cubs at Hohokam Stadium.

  10. PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:33 am

    Wordsmith comment: I notice that USA Today (McPaper) used the word “playoffs” even during the World Series in its heds and stories. No, the World Series is not the playoffs. Not in my book. (I was reminded of this in the title of Zumie’s great video montage yesterday. It reads something like: “Giants Epic 2010 Playoffs.” “Postseason” would be correct, because the WS is included, but not “playoffs.”

    For those who did not have a working link, my Style Invitational ink this week at the Washington Post site had to do with creating a blended name of any two sports teams, and defining it. I got in with: Brewers + Patriots = bunch of drunken losers. Many others are actually funny.

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:54 am

      excuse me, I forgot: BREWIOTS

    • delmardennis said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:56 am

      Wordsmith question: My dictionary.com WOTD was “emend.” I don’t see the diff between emend and “amend.”
      Would it be too much trouble if we just lost one?

      • TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:06 am

        Jeez, dennis. I guess I have to literally spell this out for you.
        One has an “e”
        One has an “a”

      • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:15 am

        off the top of me head: amend is to change; emend is to correct; correct?

      • TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:25 am

        or “make better”, yes

  11. Flavor said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:51 am

    I just watched Zumie’s video from the end of the last thread. Awesome. My favorite part was Huff’s “roll the dice” double. That was just hilarious. Not sure what that music was all about but it was perfect. What a ride…….

  12. TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 8:59 am

    ha ha ha

    • TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:02 am

      My “ha ha ha” was meant for Pawlie’s post. I forgot to click on reply. And Flav, my Arkansas joke was *that* offensive?

      • Flavor said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:08 am

        coulda gone either way. I was in a “deleting” mood this morning. Don’t take it personally.

      • TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:10 am

        No problem. I just posted it to see if anyone was still awake. I couldn’t sleep.

      • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:22 am

        tnx

  13. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:00 am

    The worst HR call on Edgar’s shot was Buck’s, of course. Fleming outdid himself, lost his voice. And the coolest through it all was Rent. Did he blow on his nails?
    Sometimes I still think the ball is going to be caught.

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:19 am

      Edgar exudes an air of deep serenity and an anchored sense of self.

  14. Macdog said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:03 am

    Can’t see the Giants — and Sabean — starting the season with 3 rookies in the lineup. Of Huff and Uribe, I gotta think they’ll be able to at least keep one of them.

    Pawlie, re the the Post link: Does that include college sports? The best I could come up with is the first part of Cornell’s nickname with the second part of South Carolina’s.

    SF Giants 2010 World Series champs: The gift that keeps on giving. My day-after Chronicle arrived in the mail yesterday from a saint in CA, along with a bonus parade-coverage issue, so I get to re-live every bit of the WS ride. That orange page is sweet!

    Ted—it’s also possible i just didn’t get the joke–or think it was funny. I often delete shit that comes in at 1am ‘just cause’ except MrBillBill and that’s because he owns the night. Repost the joke, if someone thinks it’s funny, it stays……

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:21 am

      the only Arkansas joke that comes to my mind involves circumcision and close relatives

      Thank you. It wasn’t *that* funny. But thank you anyway. πŸ˜‰

  17. willied said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:16 am

    Bass was a local kid too, from East Paly/Menlo area. I used to work with a guy who lived there ealy 80s, who used to refer to it as “Dodge City.” As in, “Hey man, can you give me a ride back to Dodge?”

    Not much pop to Mike’s LU….all in on speed and D, I guess . If you lose Huff (and Burrell isn’t in the plans), you have to replace .800 plus OPS somehow. Cody Ross will be interesting….great post season, very ordinary regular. See what he can do here for 162. And Mike’s comment from last night still hold true: you can’t trade pitching, esp a starter.

  18. PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:20 am

    If Huff and Uribe go, I’ll always have a fondness for ’em. I still would like to keep one or both, for a year or two — MAYBE an option for three.

  19. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:34 am

    It’s not my fucking LU. Fucking pay attention.

    • willied said, on November 14, 2010 at 1:09 pm

      Man, it was your suggestion “what would this do for you?”….no one elses. I gave you my thoughts….your response is two f-bombs. If that’s how you want to talk to everyone, fine. But I’m through listening. Bye.

  20. Flavor said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:37 am

    I’d love to have Huff and Uribe come back but if not, “thanks for the memories and go get paid.” No matter what uniform they wear, I’ll always follow them in the box scores and root for them when I see them at bat. The 2010 is immortal to me. Timeless. I’ll remember every single thing about this team in the seconds before I die…….

  21. stixwiz said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:39 am

    Neither Huff nor Uribe are likely to play anywhere else unless one of two things happens: Sabean lowballs them (improbable in the wake of the Championship) or some other team blows them away with a high-dollar three year offer (could happen, but not highly likely). My guesstimate is that at least one of them stays. Both guys appear to like being a Giant, Uribe because its in his genes and one would suspect he loves the cheers thundering out his name, and Huff because of the resurrection effect this team had on his career.

    My tentative take is that both guys stay, courtesy of nice raises and two-year contracts with team option and buyout clauses. Once a player gets the taste of blood it becomes addictive. Also, it does not take the proverbial rocket-scientist to realize that the Rotation and staff makes a double-dip repeat a distinct possibility.

    Who doesn’t wanna be on a perceived winner?

  22. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:42 am

    Both will most likely be entertaining their LAST contract offers… money still talks louder than cuddles and kisses.

    • Rough Trade said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:45 am

      Exactly.

  23. Rough Trade said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:44 am

    I don’t know about any lasting fondness if they go and sign with a rival and kick our ass over the next few yr’s. I warmed to dodgers coming here, but have a hard time feeling anything but hatred with they don puke blue. Anyone still feel all warm and fuzzy for Kent or Schmidt?

    • TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:49 am

      In all candor, Kent, yes, Schmidt, no

    • TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:51 am

      Although I guess I say that because of what Kent has said about his time with the Giants since retiring

  24. Flavor said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:50 am

    Honestly, I’m not too worried about one of them coming back to haunt us. This team worked because of everyone on it and how they all interacted and jelled with one another. Separately, they don’t scare me. Together, they were magic. Weird shit, I know……

    • TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 9:52 am

      True shit. There was a chemistry this year that can’t last as is in any mix. The Giants still have the raw material to still be great. But this 2010 team?
      It stands alone and always will.

  25. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 10:09 am

    I’m not writing either Huff or Uribe off as to returning, just pointing out what we should all know: their stock rose a bit. As I’ve posted before, I’d overpay if I had to…

  26. stixwiz said, on November 14, 2010 at 10:14 am

    Just checked out the MLBTR site and discovered that Ken Rosenthal is claiming that the Marlins and Uggla are getting into each other’s faces over contract length, with the slugger wanting the security of five years and that team balking. Rosenthal says he will be on the trading block at the GMs meetings this week and goes on to note that the most likely suitors are the Nats, Braves, BJs and one other AL team, the Rays, i think.

    In another article, it was noted that the Cardinals, Jonesing for help around their tattered infield, are hot in pursuit of Uribe. In yet a third piece, they noted that Huff would much prefer to re-up with the Giants. From all this i gather that Aubrey likely stays, Uribe quite possibly goes and that Sabean may be looking at possibilities.

    Trade for Uggla? Could he play third? Definitely not SS. I love having Franchez at second. Uggla’s power numbers would readily replace Uribe’s. The cost? Maybe an offer of Sandoval (still cheap ~ a biggie with grifter Florida owner Loria); Wheeler; and a pair of middle to upper middle ranked prospects not named Brandon Belt or Charlie Culberson. All this would hinge on whether Uggla would not be a butcher at third, in my estimation.

    Uggla would give the team the luxury of a certified cleanup man. There still would be a hole at shortstop as i’m still not sure about Burriss and quite hesitant over Brandon Crawford. The Rays are about the only team with a glut of viable shortstops, so a trade there looks like something to pursue.

    • zumarust said, on November 14, 2010 at 11:12 am

      Watching MLB network, Reynolds pointed out the yearly salary the Marlins are offering Uggla is comparable to what the Phils pay Utley, but not the number of years. Utley signed something like a 7-year $85 million deal with the Phils. The Marlins are offering Uggla something like a 4-year deal for $48. The yearly rate is similar but the TOTAL is way off what Uggla wants. He wants a total like Utley.
      My numbers may be a little off, but the general idea holds, I think.

  27. zumarust said, on November 14, 2010 at 11:17 am

    Wow- reading that Sports Illustrated article, Sabean can be as brutal as Bill Walsh was, in regard to talking about personnel. Talking about why they didn’t trade Jonathan Sanchez…..Sabean said “after Bumgarner, we knew we had nothing else in the minors.”
    Ouch, if you’re one of the other pitchers in the minors.

    • zumarust said, on November 14, 2010 at 11:19 am

      Granted, context is everything- Sabean meant ‘pitchers who were immediately ready to be called up.’

  28. TedSpe said, on November 14, 2010 at 11:36 am

    By the way (or BTW for you tweeter geeks), I was in North Beach last night for dessert with my honey at Steps of Rome. Ducks fans are moronic drunks.
    I don’t mind drunks. Just moronic ones.
    From Ostler today:

        I hope you remembered to leave the gun and take the cannoli.

  29. zumarust said, on November 14, 2010 at 11:54 am

    I was watching a documentary on the Black Sox scandal last night on MLB network, and at the end of the documentary I almost fell out of my chair when they had a clip of Bud Selig talking about how important it is to never let in even a tiny bit of anything that compromises the integrity of the game. BUD SELIG- the commissioner of the STEROID ERA. BUD SELIG- the commissioner during the haves and have-nots era of teams. BUD SELIG- the commissioner who’s going to wait until a shard of maple bat kills somebody before he acts. BUD SELIG- who won’t use instant replay to correct things like somebody’s perfect game getting robbed by an umpire.
    Yeah- that’s a proactive guy, that Bud Selig.

    • stixwiz said, on November 14, 2010 at 3:03 pm

      Zuma: Good job of nailing Selig. You touched every base.

  30. Nipper said, on November 14, 2010 at 12:02 pm

    His first name ain’t bad. I’ll take one or two.

  31. zumarust said, on November 14, 2010 at 12:02 pm

    Speaking of the steroid era- the 2010 Giants are the cleanser that washes away the steroid era. Baseball is back to being real baseball again. Having a bunch of guys getting 50+ homeruns may be better for TV ratings, but the sport’s overall quality suffered. The 2010 Giants are going to be a role model for a lot of organizations. The Giants won game 5 of the World Series in 2 and a half hours. Not one of those Yankee/Red Sox monstrosities that lasts 4 and a half hours.

    • xootsuit said, on November 14, 2010 at 1:06 pm

      Well, baseball certainly has entered a new drug era. The separate stories of Hamilton, Lincecum and Guillen, in this year’s WS (with BWilson’s Prop. 19 joke at the SF City celebration providing some additional atmosphere) may lay out where we are. Factor in Torres, too? Drugs are part of the culture. It makes sense to ban some, regulate others. But you have to get that done. mlb really fucked up in 90s, not clamping down on steroids.

  32. JBat said, on November 14, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    I voted Quis. I remember he was on the team, but it’s vague recollection. Whatever he had with the Royals was gone by the time the G’s got him.

    • alleykat said, on November 14, 2010 at 2:04 pm

      So true Jbat….Q was a washed up pitcher by the time he ended up at the Stick.Only pitched 6 innings got raked and hung them up.Sure was a solid player in KC though.

    • Rough Trade said, on November 14, 2010 at 2:19 pm

      Are they on track for a record for most penalties?

  34. San Dog said, on November 14, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    I remember all those dudes except for Garner—nice call on the Pepper Pot rocking the Orange and Black. SFG has always specialized in picking up guys when they absolutely have nothing left in the tank–Duke Snider, Steve Carlton, Ken Oberkfell, Tommy Herr…..the list goes on an an on.
    Portugal killed the Giants—Barry in particular, then didn’t do too well for us. I was at a game at Dogger Stadium once where Mondesi threw him out at first base from right field.
    As for Sabean, he had a rolling duffel type thing with him. I think he, Krukow, and others live right there near MoMo’s.
    I was at the Cal game and totally agree that most Oregon fans were drunken morons—-and there were lots of them.
    I was with one of my brothers and 3 of his buds—they all went to Cal. It was a good time and it cool to pay our final respects to Memorial Stadium in its present state. That place looks to the same as it did when I started going to games there when I was about 10.

  35. xootsuit said, on November 14, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    1 hr ch 9 documentary on Gary Snyder was more exciting than the 49ers game. The zen knife cuts itself. MPortugal was a Giants pain in the ass for and against the team.

  36. zumarust said, on November 14, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    Padres make a deal:

    “SAN DIEGO — In a move to bolster their offense and defense, the Padres reeled in a big fish on Saturday, trading for Marlins outfielder Cameron Maybin, a former top prospect and first-round Draft pick.

    The Marlins, who were seeking bullpen help, received two right-handed relievers, Ryan Webb and Edward Mujica, in the trade.

    “We traded two good relievers from our bullpen. But we feel like we have some bullpen depth,” Padres general manager Jed Hoyer said. “We have a number of holes we need to fill. We feel like we filled one of them.”

    • zumarust said, on November 14, 2010 at 3:34 pm

      Maybin hit .234 last season, and struck out 92 times in 320 plate appearances (yikes).
      Stole 9 bases in 11 attempts.

  37. Rough Trade said, on November 14, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    Just horrible offensive line play by the 49er’s.

  38. PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    Pretty thoughtful essay on the 2010 season possibly being the end of an era:

    anyone got a link to chuck’s Niner blog?

  42. delmardennis said, on November 14, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    My worst fear is that the Niners go 7-9, win the shitty NFC West and keep Singletary.

    He has to go.

  43. Flavor said, on November 14, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    Denny– so true. Two shitty teams hanging around to have a chance to beat each other. If the Niners ever play a good team we will see just how overmatched they are. And I like the team, the talent is there. But this is the worst prepared coaching staff in the league by a country mile. Winning games against shitty teams, when they could easily have lost to them, is what masks the indignation………

  44. Flavor said, on November 14, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    remember, Singletary and his band of idiots had 2 weeks to prepare for this. They never have a clue. It’s always “We’ve got more heart!….oops, now make an adjustment at halftime”. Great fucking game plan……..

  45. Flavor said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    What I want to know is, what does Singletary do all week (or two weeks)? Does he just sit in his office scribbling down inspirational quotes? He’s better off doing that, he’s completely out-brained on the x’s/o’s……

    • delmardennis said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:24 pm

      Flav, that’s a helluva question. I haven’t the faintest idea what, if anything he does for game preparation. Same can be said for his game time actions. What the hell does he do on the sidelines other than yell at the officials, the occasional player and have the face of someone who is completely lost.

      I never see him going over the instant Polaroids for adjustments. He wears that headset but I don’t recall seeing him communicating to often. He’s nothing more than a goddamn figurehead.

      14 penalties (105 yds) today. Penalties are a lack of discipline That lack of discipline is attributable to one man and one man only — Mike Singletary.

  46. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    I kind of enoyed the game… it was funny because I knew they’d lose it…but they didn’t. Midnight comes next week for Troy Smith.

  47. Flavor said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    going through old baseball cards, found a Candy Maldonado SF card. Sweet. Turned it over and it’s got “Hubie Brooks” stats on the back. What the fuck is that worth?

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:23 pm

      The card is worth 89 cents — give or take; still wish Candy had not lost that ball in the lights***; classic duel: Tudor vs. Dravecky. 1987.

      *** BUT, HEY, WE JUST WON THE WORLD SERIES AND HAVE BANISHED ALL GHOSTS AND EXORCISED — AMENDED, EMENDED — ALL DEVILS.

      • zumarust said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:32 pm

        Was that the 1-0, game 6? Funny, I don’t really remember the fielding miscue so much. The play I really remember is Dravecky doing an amazing job getting a bunt down with two strikes on him, but Bob Melvin getting thrown out at third on a bang/bang incredibly close play. Why no pinch runner, Roger, why no pinch runner?

      • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:34 pm

        yup, 1-0; only run was that ball lost in the lights, poor fellow

      • delmardennis said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:48 pm

        Ever seem to get the same Giant over and over again in your pack of cards? Mine was Rob Andrews in the late ’70s. I’d open up that pack of Topps hoping for a Jack Clark rookie card and I’d get nothing but another Rob Andrews, 2B. I got sick and tired of getting Rob Andrews. Stoopid picture of him wearing a black windbreaker underneath his jersey. Who the hell gets their picture taken wearing a windbreaker? I hated that card.

  48. twinfan said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    Finally found some numbers on Crash McClain for 2010 in Hiroshima… probably about over for Scott- .244 BA but he did pop 18… his HRs are still my 2008 highlight….

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on November 14, 2010 at 6:38 pm

      didn’t we beat the Yankees on a hit by Nate in ’08? Or was that ’07? I am referring to a Saturday afternoon game, possibly extra innings; I followed it on XM radio; possibly, the day before, Alex Rodriquez won it on a bomb

        I was at that Saturday game, Pawlie. It was a cap give-away game. They were giving out NY Giants replica hats. The game went extra-innings, and the Giants caught a break in that Jeter got injured late in the game, and he didn’t bat during the last time through the order. A-Rod tied the game with a homer in the top of the ninth to send it to extra innings. And, yes indeed, Nate won the game with a walk-off single in extra innings.

    I remember A-Rod hitting one to dead center about 500 feet but I think that tied a thriller that we won in extras on, yep: Nate’s hit in the 13th. 2007.

      Yeah, monster homerun to straightaway center by A-Rod. Bonds-esque.

    I can’t remember if it was ’07 or ’08, but the Giants did win 2 out of 3 against the Yankees that weekend, and in a way, set the tone for the next few years, that the Giants, with their pitching, could play good teams really tough in a short series. Something totally missed by a lot of the baseball pundits this year before the playoff series with the Phillies was that the Giants had played the Phils tough the last couple of seasons. Giants fans weren’t surprised that the Giants could play the Phils tough in a series.

    As usual, Z beat me to the punch. I’ll skulk to bed now…

      Hey thanks for the box score! I kept score at the game, but as usual stuck the program willy nilly in one of my bookcases, who knows where.
      Vinnie Chulk with the win! Whoda thunk it?
      Guys like Hennessy and Kline in relief. That weekend was definitely one of the high points of ’07.
      Arguably the biggest high point of the season, though, was the arrival of Lincecum.

        Did Bonds break the career HR record that season? Seems like such a huge after-thought now. I heard Kuiper say a similar thing recently on KNBR. The World Series win dwarfs all other achievements.

    Denny– I completely know what you mean about the Rob Andrew’s card. Somewhere in a box, I’ve got 40 of him….
    Just found the Marc Hill card. I was thinking of doing a “Favorite Back up catcher” poll and thought of Hill. Probably not going to do one. Once you think you’ve found a good back up guy it turns out he started half the the time, he just sucked so bad you barely remember him…….
    Hill’s card is great. totally non-descript numbers, you almost wonder how he ever played at that level. Anyway, here are the two one line signature quotes from his card: “had a 2 run, 11th inning pinch single helping giants defeat dodgers by 3-2 verdict, Aug 12th, 1978” and……”his father, Edward Hill, was a pitcher in the St Louis Brown’s organization in the 1940’s”……..There is no more classic baseball card from the 70’s than that, my friends………

    Twin, I’m sending you the Hill card. Burn it, read it, whatever. I just like sending you baseball cards, deal with it. πŸ™‚

    Marc Hill had 1300+ at bats as a Giant. He had one triple. Who wouldn’t want to see that on video right now?

    It will fit in my tart hole. I’ll eat it

    youtube in the 70’s woulda been a wild ride, man. They might have just shut the entire operation down. In fact, if youtube had preceded the internet somehow in the 70’s, we’d probably all be sending letters and shit to eachother right now….
