A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Taking a Break From the Blog……

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 27, 2011

It’s 4am and I woke up wanting to bash Scott Cousins head in with a 2 X 4. I’ve watched that replay like 40 times.  I’m sickened by it. There’s something about the immediate finality of his season ending that bothers me. Makes me not want to watch the game. No idea why. It’s like a death or a divorce…..

Anyway, I’m taking a break from the blog for a while. Maybe I need to go out to a game or something. I’ll try to monitor it but I’m not interested in managing it or updating it. Peace out……

    Broadcasters need a new metaphor, referring to someone’s great arm as a “cannon.”
    Then Krukow called it a “lethal wing.” That was pretty good.

  2. Del Mar Dennis said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    Timmy’s been our only base runner thru four. What, me worry?

  3. James said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    Hopefully? I’m still stuck on “for free,” long after it became acceptable in the New Yorker.

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:19 pm

      At least the New Yorker and Chicago Manual of Style still use the serial comma. But sometimes the NYer is quirky: metre, focussed, high-school (adj). (Is the game streaming? I seem to be avoiding it on purpose.) THAT is Twin’s LONGEST post.

    Giants need to go yard once or twice tonite to win this thing…

  5. twinfan said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    Bob Prince (The Gunner) is said to have coibed some of the best stuff:
    “AN ALABASTER BLAST”
    A Baltimore chop base hit that would go higher than normal due to the extraordinarily hard infield at Forbes Field

    “ARRIBA”
    Prince’s cry to Roberto Clemente to hit one up and over the wall.

    “ASPIRIN TABLETS”
    A pitcher would be throwing a ball so hard it looked as tiny and as hard to hit as an aspirin tablet. As in, “Veale’s firin’ aspirin tablets out there tonight.”

    “ATEM BALLS”
    Hard line drives right to an infielder – it was at ’em. “Law has his At’em ball workin’ tonight.”

    “BABUSHKA POWER”
    Prince developed babushkas that the women in the stands could wear to bring the Pirates luck. It was, in a sense, a later version of the Green Weenie.

    “THE BASES ARE F.O.B.” (full of Bucs)
    What was needed now, was a bingle, a dying quail, perhaps a bug on the rug…

    “A LITTLE BINGLE”
    A little hit; a small single; perhaps a bunt single. Just something that would get a Bucco on base.

    “THE BLACK MAX”

    “A BLOOP AND A BLAST”
    A quick way to get two runs through a single (the bloop) and a home run (the blast), as in, “The Buccos are down by one run going to the bottom of the ninth. What we need here is a bloop and a blast.”

    “A BUG ON THE RUG”
    A basehit that skittered through the gap, particularly on artificial turf.

    “BY A GNAT’S EYELASH”
    A very small margin indeed, as in, “That ball just missed. It was foul by a gnat’s eyelash.”

    “CHICKEN ON THE HILL”
    A home run for Willie Stargell, begun by the fact that Stargell owned a chicken restaurant in Pittsburgh’s Hill District and that whenever he homered, the person at the counter would get free chicken. Thus, Prince would say, “We need a homer here. Come on, Willie, spread some Chicken on the Hill.” In one particular game, Prince said that if Stargell hit a home run, everybody in the restaurant would get free chicken. Stargell did hit the home run, everyone got free chicken, and Stargell sent the bill to Prince.

    “CLOSE AS FUZZ ON A TICK’S EAR”
    a little closer than a gnat’s eyelash.

    “DON’T BOO STU, HE’S OVER-DUE”
    A cheer to get firstbaseman Dick Stuart out of a slump.

    “DON’T KNOCK THE ROCK”
    Rocky Nelson, 1b-man alternating with Stuart.

    “A DYING QUAIL”
    A little bloop, a tweener, or a bingle; a hit that falls in like a shot quail would.

    “THE GREEN WEENIE”
    A device invented by the Gunner to jinx and perhaps spook opposing players, the green weenie was the size and shape of a hot dog. When pointed at the opponents and shaken, it rattled and supposedly put a jinx on them.

    “HE COULDN’T HIT THAT WITH A BED SLAT”
    This is what the Gunner would say when a batter chased a pitch way outside. Take one of the slats out from under a full sized bed and notice how much longer it is than a bat, and you get an idea that the batter was definitely chasing.

    HE LIT UP THE LIGHTS ON BROADWAY”
    in response to a called 3rd strike.

    “HIDDEN VIGORISH”
    Similar to the law of averages, it was the force which dictated that a player who was in a slump was due for a big hit, as in, “Stargell is Oh for his last eight, so with hidden vigorish he should get a big hit here.”

    “HOOVER”
    A double play by which the Bucs would clean up the basepaths. When someone complained that Prince was giving free advertising to a particular brand of vacuum cleaner, he tried to invent a story about President Herbert Hoover’s cleaning up corruption in Washington.

    “HOW SWEET IT IS”
    After suffering through some terrible Bucco teams in the early- 1950’s, Prince got to enjoy the taste of victory in 1960 and throughout the early-1970’s with the Battlin’ Bucs. The taste of a championship, a mid-season victory, or a home run that would put the Bucs ahead would draw out “How sweet it is”.

    “KISS IT GOOD-BYE”
    The most famous of Prince’s sayings; this was his well-known home run call.

    “MARY EDGERLEY”
    No one knew exactly who she was (or whether she was related to Jimmy Durante’s Mrs. Calabash), but Prince would end each broadcast by saying, “Good night, Mary Edgerley, wherever you are.”

    “A #8 CAN OF GOLDEN BANTAM”
    A can of corn; refers to an easy fly ball. Immortalized in 1970 when Matty Alou dropped a “can of corn” against the Cubs, and the Bucs had to wait another day to clinch their first pennent in 10 years.

    “RADIO BALL”
    “Koufax just threw Stuart his radio ball. He could hear it, but he couldn’t see it.” “Low hummin’ riser.” (Similar to a radio ball)

    “RUG CUTTIN’ TIME”
    “It’s rug cuttin’ time.” More commonly known as “crunch time.” “For all the money, marbles, and chalk.” Deciding moment. Crunch time.

    “RUNNIN’ THROUGH THE RAIN DROPS”
    When a pitcher gives up a lot of hits but doesn’t give up serious runs. Escapes without serious damage being done.

    “SNAKE BIT”
    Can’t get a break. The Bucs are snake bit tonight.

    “SOUP COOLERS”
    a high pitch was up around a sluggers mouth, or lips, or “soup coolers”. Prince often said Stargell was looking for a pitch up around his “soup coolers”.

    “TWEENER”
    A ball that got “between” the outfielders; similar to a “bug on a rug”, but it could occur on grass or as a “bloop” hit that fell in between fielders; hopefully, followed by a Bucco “blast”.

    “WE HAD ‘EM ALL THE WAY”
    Spoken after a close win by the Pirates, it indicated that we should have known all along that the Pirates would win. It was perhaps the father of Lanny Frattare’s “No doubt about it.”

    • mrmrbill said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:17 pm

      Soup coolers — nice!

    • zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:19 pm

      Good stuff. Thanks.
      This would have been a sight to see:
      “A device invented by the Gunner to jinx and perhaps spook opposing players, the green weenie was the size and shape of a hot dog. When pointed at the opponents and shaken, it rattled and supposedly put a jinx on them.”

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:21 pm

      For some reason, I love the “bed slat” one.

    • TedSpe said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:30 pm

      Those are good. I’ve heard some of them before so it must have become part of our vernacular

  6. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    I’d like to see Sholtz (RF), Burriss (LF), Crawford (SS), and Belt (1B) in a lineup altogether. Why the hell not?…

  7. zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    Burrell got a perfect bounce on that hit. If he fields that cleanly, he has a chance to get Morgan at second. But….

  8. twinfan said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    That was some decent barking by Bonehead.

  9. zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    Alright- Giants get one of those things called a “run.”

  10. zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    D-Backs losing; Rockies tied so far.

  11. stixwiz said, on May 27, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    If the #3 and four hitters go oh for the evening, do you spose Capacious Cranium will take note and try another tack tomorrow?

  12. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    Tejada should go yard here….

  13. Kevin said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    If Tejada doesn’t do something here…

  14. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    I’ll take the rare Tejada base on balls…

  15. zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    OH MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CrawDad

  17. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    Like I said, WTF not?
    Start Crawford the next two weeks…

    • twinfan said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:13 pm

      I doubt they had plans for anything else. He hits at all , the future SS is now- ansd Miggy comes off the bench.

  18. DJLoo said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    Holy fuckin’ shit!!!!!
    Shades of Brian Dallimore!!

  19. Kevin said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Now all we need is Panda back at third

  20. stixwiz said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    So in his first ducks on the pond opportunity in The Show, the Rook serves up Salami on wry. One way to get noticed quick. Thought we were bringing him up for his glove and was hoping he’d draw a walk or maybe squeeze out a single.

    Yowza!

  21. PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    Those sayings by Bob Prince? Add another one: “He Crawforded that ball back to the Bay!!!!!”

  22. twinfan said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    Crawford might get another start or two…

  23. PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    Brandon Redux on the Pond to the max!

  24. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    Not sure if the pitching staff knows what to do.
    A two run lead in the latter innings? Shocking….

  25. twinfan said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Well,they hold on, they cover Dennis’ 1-6…

    • snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:22 pm

      If Crawford wants to hit another Grand Salami tomorrow night, I’m perfectly cool with him personally covering my 2-5…. 🙂

  26. unca chuck said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    I told my son, if ever there’s a time to swing 1st pitch, it’s when the bases are loaded . . .

    And yeah, that was the most pissed I’ve seen Boch the coach get out there.

    Too cool for Crawford. Way to pick up the team, rook . . .

    • DJLoo said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:18 pm

      You’re Brandon Crawford’s dad?

      • unca chuck said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:21 pm

        Didn’t you see him on his cell in the on-deck circle?

      • xootsuit said, on May 27, 2011 at 9:45 pm

        I imagine him in his cell, with you there during visiting hours.

  27. blade3colorado said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    Dateline Colorado . . . Stop . . . Ubaldo Jimenez is being “lit up” by the Cards . . . Stop.

      • blade3colorado said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:24 pm

        Wild pitch by their “Ace” . . . Cha Ching – Cards lead 6-3.

    Shit! Counsell still plays?? Talk about whack-ass stances . . .\\\

    Although he toned it down a bit.

  29. PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Dbax pulled ahead against HOU.

  30. stixwiz said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Timmy threw that 7th like he enjoys having a two-run lead. Whodda thunk it?

  31. PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    Brandon Crawford, trending worldwide.

    • zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:29 pm

      Yes, whoever bought Brandon Crawford stock this morning is now in the black.

  32. stixwiz said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    Belt replaces Burrell in the lineup tomorrow or my name’s Wavy Gravy.

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:31 pm

      I like Wavy Gravy, as a concept. Don’t know him, personally.

  33. PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    Everyone is checking, but it seems as if CrawDad’s GS in his first game is first for a Giant since Bobby Bonds’s GS, in 1968.

  34. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Nate continues to confound. Two good ABs early, then now with 2 on base and one out, he swings at offspeed crap way off the plate outside into a DP. That is the stuff he has to stop to become a real player….

  35. PawlieKokonuts said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    MIRANDA WARNING. Who’s this Miranda w/ 2 jacks for Arizona?

      Casillas.

      • snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:50 pm

        Thanks, maybe that’s why he’s had elbow issues…

  40. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    Tejada must make that play. Hard hit, but he had to barely move to glove it on a decent bounce. Terrible play…

  41. DJLoo said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    REVENGE!!!!!!

  42. twinfan said, on May 27, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    That is an illegal hit under the”MCCarver Rule”. 5 games without pay plus $50,000..

    • zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:02 pm

      A player shouldn’t be allowed to lead with an extended arm-bar, thrusting out
      like he did

  43. stixwiz said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    If nothing else, maybe SF will lead the league in O.F. assists this season.

  44. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    I’ve seen harder hits at the plate the last two games than in half a season from the Niner secondary…

    Tale of two Brandons [small sample]: Crawford loose, confident; Belt tight, earnest.

  48. SanDawg said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Great win–just saw the highlights.
    Fuck I hate Prince Fielder.
    Is it me, or does Crawford kind of look like Andre Ethier?

  49. stixwiz said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    Huge, huge win. Had a feeling Timmy was gonna do it. Got a bit chancy there in the bottom of the 8th, with all the walks and hits adding to exactly one run as Ross/Whiteside depose the Prince. Add not overmuch drama with our .38 Special in the bottom on the 9th and Ballgame!

    Can you imagine the special kinda hazing Crawford will get in the clubhouse tonight? Can you dig the high-fives, the vibe? The Florida series by the Bay was an unmitigated disaster, but one way and another the team led by another gutsy performance by Tim Terrific and the sudden Salami by our new SS, pulled those chestnuts outta the fire.

    Calling a kid SS up from A-Ball could be called an act of desperation. His coming through the way he did tonight will go down in Giants lore along with the Little Miracle of Coogan’s Bluff. Even if the kid only hits in the .220 to .240 range, tonight’s heroics, plus his plus defense have bought him a stretch of time in The Show. Welcome Brandon!

  50. blade3colorado said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Rockies are getting spanked 10-3 . . . Rockies relief corps is almost comical trying to just end the game.

    In the famous words of Dennis Green, “They are who we thought they were.”

  51. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    This BrewCrew lineup is loaded for bear. Other than the pitcher, there’s not an EZ out in it. If they get any pitching the rest of the way and stay healthy, they should be in the Central race to the end…

  52. twinfan said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Belt looked pretty good for a couple days- I’m hoping as much as as anyone but Crawford hit .250 in two AA seasons.If he can hit that here, he’s the SS. He’s got a couple weeks to make his case or he’s going down. Remember: never too up or down…

    • zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:47 pm

      He’s already tied Tejada in HRs. (grin)

    • snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 9:09 pm

      If he can hit .250 here with a solid SS glove, hell, he can stay here the next half decade….

  53. Bozo said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    I know this is wrong, but if I’m a Giants pitcher Fielder gets the Jose Mesa one pitch intentional walk every time I see him. The punk should be plunked when he’s in the on deck circle.
    WTG Craw and way to hang tough NO WHITEY.

  54. TedSpe said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    Broderick looked pretty good today

  55. zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    Ya know- the Dodgers are leading Florida 2-1, and I say good. Can’t believe I’m saying that.

  56. snarkk said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    Tejada is better at third than SS, but not by a helluva lot. If the ball is to his left or right, he goes into this slide thing, even when he does not seem to have to do that, then he has to get up to set and make the throw. He hit one ball hard to center. Since they’ve been giving Burriss some reps at third, I’d start him in a game, with Crawford at SS…

    • zumarust said, on May 27, 2011 at 8:55 pm

      Tejada drew a big walk too, in the grandslam inning. He’ll be out there a lot until Sandoval gets back.

    • twinfan said, on May 27, 2011 at 9:04 pm

      Tejada will be the third baseman until Panda gets back. Then they’ll look at it..

  60. Flavor said, on May 27, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    That was a fun game to watch….I need more shit like that in my life right now. Fielder can’t create enough momentum to do what Cousin’s did. Whitey is no pussy, he might not be wide but he’s strong and tall. Fielder actually looked like he was easing up a bit (at least in terms of the speed he approached him with). Who knows, maybe he was slowing down to hit up a vegetarian hot dog stand.
    I am as committed to this as you can be. There has to be a rule change. Turning yourself into a human missile should not be allowed. And if football has made these changes to protect QB’s from injury then baseball has to do it as well. Saying, “that’s the way the game has always been” is bullshit. I’d like to see how many guys in 1920 ran as fast as Cousins who’s 6’2, 200 lbs. No fucking way.
    He turned himself into a human missile. Buster can’t defend himself in that moment. The NFL changed many rules for QB’s for the same reason…..
    OK, that’s my P(for)TD. I love this game, I love chatting it up with all you guys, but I’m still on the DL for a while……..

        This youtube stuff is toooo much…

    Byrnes on KNBR post-game is approaching FP’s numnutz event horizon.
    He mixed up Velez with Burriss, and doesn’t know what WAR means.
    And this guy is an ex major leaguer, self-described baseball “expert” on a 50K watt station?…

      He could not be worse than Estes. Could he

        I swear, if we could get a panel of Flappers on radio (censored), people would learn a ton about baseball and the Giants and just have a bunch of laughs way more than from the turds they put on the Bay Area radio. It would be a hoot just to hear us shoot down the stoooopid calls that people make. BF could produce a twice a month Flap radio show for podcasting, a different Flap “panel” each session…

        Yeah, I thought of something like that few years ago, Snarkk. . Kind of a Vin Scully meets Howard Stern kind of thing. . . .

        I’ve been meaning to pitch the idea to Siruis Radio . . .

      You listen to the people that call in??

    I went to a goddamn birthday party and missed everything. The chocolate M&M cake was delicious.
    Took two slices home with me. Think I’ll give one to Crawford. Not too shabby, kid.
    Not too shabby at all…

    And what’s all this shit about NO Whitey sticking it to that fat fuck Fielder. I missed that, too.
    I guess I have to give him my other slice of chocolate cake.

    Dodgers load bases in the bottom of the ninth.

    Dodgers beat the Marlins. The Marlins go with the 5 infielder “clever” move but didn’t even put one of them up the middle.

    Those are good. I’ve heard some of them before so it must have become part of our vernacular.

    From the Stooges’ “Disorder in the Court”:
    DA questions Curly on the stand: Kindly speak English and drop the vernacular.
    Curly (referring to the hat in his lap): Vernacular? That’s a doiby!”…
