Dirrrrrrrrty Goes Today……..

Over the long haul Brandon Crawford can’t hit….

Belted out a very loud “Fuck Yeah!” after Whiteside tagged Fielder and flipped the ball in front of him….

    Seems like Rowand’s gotten a fair amount of clutch late game hits the past 2 seasons.

  2. DJLoo said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    What a pussy.

  3. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Gomez was supposed to be the crown jewel for the Twins in the Santana trade.

  4. blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    Classic . . . “You can’t blow the ball foul.”

    Who knew?

  5. blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    All that Giant swag looks new. Bandwagon fans????

  6. DJLoo said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    Hope this delay doesn’t put Romo into Frisbee mode…

  7. blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    I hope that fan that ordered the potato feels guilty about starving people in Africa . . . That damn potato could feed a village for a week.

  8. zumarust said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    That potato was stupid. A more stupid meal could not be concocted.

  9. zumarust said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    The over-eating in general that goes on at ballgames is ridiculous. People turn into eating machines, watching a 3-hour game, and consume enough calories for several days. Maybe that’s one of the reasons I keep score. It gives me something to do so I don’t do the eating-machine thing at games.

  10. DJLoo said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    If I had something cooking in the oven, I would check on it during Tejada’s at bats.

    • snarkk said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:50 pm

      Awesome….

  11. zumarust said, on May 28, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Oh man, this is going to be hard to watch. I wonder what’s going on with Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room.

  12. blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    Well, another pffffft!

  13. Del Mar Dennis said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Brutal.

    And WTF is up with this weather? It’s brutal as well. I could just bitch slap Estes. He’s a fucking moron.

  14. TedSpe said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    bummmmer

  15. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    No biggie- two hard fought contests against a good team in their yard.

    • EdGdsnInExile said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm

      Always good to have the long view in mind, Twin, as this can be exasperating. Thanks.

  16. EdGdsnInExile said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    I was taught as a pitcher on a squeeze you throw at a right-handed hitter because he’s less likely to get the bunt down and his instincts might make him try to get out of the way allowing the catcher better access to tag out the runner. Point is, if he gets any bunt down anywhere, it’s over. There’s no way a pitcher, especially a right-hander, is unaware the runner’s coming.

    • zumarust said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:12 pm

      He seemed unaware at first, IMO.

  17. Del Mar Dennis said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Kruk: “give credit to our offense?” We fucking scored a measly two runs on a grand total of 5 hits.
    I ain’t giving credit to no one except Dirrrty.

  18. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    But let the doomering begin…

    • Del Mar Dennis said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:18 pm

      Rowand…… .247
      Burrell……… .230
      Ross……….. .233
      Huff………… .223
      Tejada…….. .212
      NO Whitey…176

      Those numbers spell…D-O-O-M

      • twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:53 pm

        28-23.. those numbers spell F-I-R-S-T P-L-A-C-E

      • Nipper said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:59 pm

        Hey, Dennis can spell. Good boy! Now spell a B-E-E-R!

    • DJLoo said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:19 pm

      OK!
      Tejada and Burrell are just DONE.
      Can they really afford to wait 3 more weeks for Panda? And who knows what he’ll be when he comes back. Are they seriously going with Eli EVERY day?

  19. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    It worked but it’s really a massively stupid call with a .328 hitter up who has never successfully bunted.. Cain/Gallardo tomorrow, should be a good ‘un..

  20. zumarust said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    I see on MLB.com that Pudge said he would rather stay in D.C., going with the philosophy of “I’d rather play for a last-place team than possibly go to the World Series.”

    • zumarust said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:19 pm

      Also known as the “Adam LaRoche philosophy.”

  21. DJLoo said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    Call the Yanks about Cervelli, the Astros about Lee & Keppinger, and the Cubs about Ramirez. All can be had without denting our starting staff…

  22. DJLoo said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    We’re the World Champs and we’re fuckin’ decimated!

    • zumarust said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:34 pm

      But we’re also in firsplace in our division, and there is more baseball to be played tonight. Arizona and Colorado to root against! The Dodger game…..I’ve still got an anti-Marlin vibe….

  23. blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    Double by Cargo and Rocks lead 1-0 over Cards, no outs, men on 2nd and 3rd.

    Shit, this game is supposed to salvage my day . . . sigh.

  24. blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    Fuck, 5 straight hits in Coors Canaveral and still no outs . . . This could get ugly.

  25. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    It’s a little early to be freaking on scorebard watching. You’ll have a coronary before September ball even starts..

  26. Sportdude said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    We are in 1st and Posey was on a pace for 12 homers and 60 rbi’s…ANY production from Burrel, Huff, Ross, Tejada etc and Giants are ok…

  27. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    For the newbies-it was the same last year. Led by Doomin’ Denny, Flappers were jumping off the Giants’ bandwagon with nearly every loss.”Botchy” was an idiot, Sabean a moron. It was all I could do to keep the Boys from jumping. (sigh). It’s hard work, this Doom Bustin’ Biz..

  28. Del Mar Dennis said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    The Horse doesn’t have all that great of numbers vs the Brew Crew. Especially in their park (1-2 5.14 in 3 starts).
    And don’t expect to get much off of Gallardo tomorrow. No one in our lineup hits him well with the exception for Shitholtz in a small sample size (3/7). And he’s been especially tough lately; 5ER in his last 27IP (1.66). And Yovani will be on 5 days of rest tomorrow;13-3 with a 2.63 ERA. I didn’t even mention the fact that the Brewers are avg. > 6 runs/gm in support of Gallardo. All I see from numbers is a bunch of DOOM and GLOOM. What else is new?

  29. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    I really don’t know how you can go on living, Doomin’ Denny.

  30. Del Mar Dennis said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    We scored exactly 697 runs (4.3/gm) last year. We’re on pace to tally 562 (3.47/gm) runs this season. I don’t think it’ll be that bad, but no way in hell do we come close to last years numbers as this offense is currently comprised.

    Getting Pablo back will be a boost. But he can only help so much. And that’s assuming he continues his torrid pace after the surgery. Burrell? Huff? Ross? Tejada? Fuhgeddaboudit.

  31. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Non-stop 24/7 dooming is taking it too far Denny. I don’t know anybody here can go on living after a day of your posts. And it’s not like you have a history of being right..

  32. blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    I feel for whomever has Jaime Garcia on the Flap Fantasy league . . . Larussa has left him in for the entire game (relievers overworked) thus far and it’s 12-0.

  33. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    I’m willing to cut you a deal-limit your doomin’ to one post a day, I’ll limit my
    ” Everything will be OK” to one.

    • snarkk said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:52 pm

      Sounds fair.
      Trust, but verify…

      • blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:54 pm

        LQTM . . . Good one Snarkk.

  34. snarkk said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    After today’s latest offensive constipation, I would put everybody under 30 in the LU tomorrow to start — whatever positions aren’t filled then go to the next oldest player, and so on. If Belt and Crawford aren’t starting, Bochy needs to explain it. As for waiting for Godot, I mean Panda, OK, assuming when he gets back he actually is 100% and can swing the bat from either side with no pain, itz still ludicrous to expect him to light a fire himself. If the lineup is still shooting blanks, he’ll have no protection so the oppo will just throw him nothing but shit, and he’ll be hard pressed to hit .275…

  35. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    Or I can take over the doomin’:
    Arizona 6-0
    Coorado 12-0
    May 28 already!
    1…2..3
    “We’re fuckin’ doomed!!”

  36. twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Good day to debut Stewart as well.. Aubrey gets a breather. This is my LU tomorrow :
    Torres CF
    Belt 1B just for the Stickman
    Fruckie 2B
    Ross LF
    Nate RF
    Tejada 3B
    Crawford SS
    Stewart C

    Uh,OK. Who else we got in Fresno 😉

    • snarkk said, on May 28, 2011 at 6:18 pm

      Now we’re talkin.
      I would even put Burriss at 3rd and get Tejada outta there for at least one game, since Burriss can hit LHd, his supposed stronger side, against RHd Gallardo.
      Letzee how close Bochy gets to your LU…

  37. blade3colorado said, on May 28, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    Some dude named Swarzak (Minn) is pitching a no-hitter against the Angels.*

    *Of course, I just jinked him by mentioning it.

    • twinfan said, on May 28, 2011 at 6:53 pm

      Lost it in the 8th.

  38. slo_roll said, on May 28, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    this offense has gone through the equivelent of a grenade tossed in the foxhole. c) gone 1b)mia 2b)still firing away ss)awol 3b)disabled of) rf purple heart/ cf purple heart/ lf shot. the boys are shakin out the cobwebs and it might be a couple of weeks before an offensive (if you can call it that) can be mustered. once they get their bearings they will be back to 4.5r a game which should win the campaign

  39. slo_roll said, on May 28, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    the good news is the offense are the peashooters and the pitchers are the big guns and the casuality on their side was actually helpful. every night i say my prayers for tim,matt,johnny,ryan, and madison….. please lord, dont let one of them go down…….

  40. Del Mar Dennis said, on May 28, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    CF Gomez
    3B Burriss
    2B Fruckster
    1B Huff
    RF Shitholtz
    LF Belt
    SS Crawford
    .C Stewart
    .P Horse

    That’s what I’d scribble on the lineup card if they gave me the keys to the clubhouse.

    • TedSpe said, on May 28, 2011 at 8:44 pm

      The key word here being…scribble

      • Del Mar Dennis said, on May 28, 2011 at 8:54 pm

        My father made me scribble once…once!

      • TedSpe said, on May 28, 2011 at 8:55 pm

        That fargin eyeshole

      • TedSpe said, on May 28, 2011 at 9:06 pm

        You know,Dennis? A truly underrated comedy. Maybe not up to AIRPLANE level but still, tonna laughs. I’m LQTM right now thinking of the scene where Peter Boyle thinks he’s holding his severed johnson and the ensemble’s reaction when everyone makes him realize it’s just the toilet handle. Classic.

  41. stixwiz said, on May 28, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    More thunderbooming in the Northwoods today so puterdown. Briefly reconnected just after six my time to catch the news on the game. Though the score ended up close, it went the way i had presupposed. Though all the Divisional opponents may have won by the time the night is over, Giants are still hanging onto first. Back in the pre-season i looked over this 7-game midwestern set and saw possible problems. After returning home, though, for the most part the schedule looks a whole lot lighter for a bunch of while.

    That the wounded, crippled, virtually gangbanged Giants are even-steven in Milwaukee against a hard-hitting team is largely due to an incredible pitching staff ~ most of it, anyway. Bochy musta felt his primary late-inning guys were used-up a bit much so long-man Mota gets the call and gives up 3 of Milwaukee’s five hits ~ oh, and the winning run. Will Casilla have it when he returns shortly? Runzler likely goes down to get stretched out some more. He’s a bit rusty and still has options. The way Bruce mixes and matches his late-inning guys, a fourth reliable (or mostly reliable) would be huge. That way 7th and 8th are pretty well covered, with drama to come in the 9th more times than not.

    Yeah, give the kids a shot at Gallardo tomorrow, seeings as most of the “regulars” have not hit him well. Maybe Burriss will be okay at third, with Crawford at short and Belt either at first or in the O.F. Huff has been back to hitting a lick (nothing much more) lately; so unless he can’t hit Gallardo for scheisskendorfers, he should start too. Now Ross is backfiring. Maybe he could sit for Nate.

    Should the batters give Cain some support tomorrow resulting in a Giants victory, there’s a damned good chance SF will win at least one in St. L. and possibly gain a split. On this particular trip at this particular time, going either 3-4 or 4-3 would be gigantic, humungous. Big. After the Budweisers got half-drowned in a keg of Coors this afternoon, they too may be hurting a bit. Again, more than one or two wins on this road trip and the team can feel pretty good about themselves. Add a couple effective bats to the P.S. over the next 2-3 weeks and SF should cruise. The bats would be the presently recovering Sandoval and the currently splinter-butted Belt.

    • TedSpe said, on May 28, 2011 at 9:10 pm

      stix, as usual, an intelligent, well thought out, funny post.
      But “That the wounded, crippled, virtually gangbanged Giants”?
      You’ve been watching too many prison films

  42. stixwiz said, on May 28, 2011 at 9:24 pm

    Ted, maybe i’m just channeling or something. No boobtoob here and see a movie maybe a couple times per year. Closest moviehouse is 16 miles one-way, which in my 91 F-150 is about two gallons of gas. So even though the flicks are very inexpensive there, my carbon-credits take a beating. I used up most of those doing 12 years of antique road-showing in 26 states. No comparison to what an F-16 burns up in a few hours, but one does have to live with oneself.

    • TedSpe said, on May 28, 2011 at 9:31 pm

      stix, please understand, it was just a knee jerk borscht belt badda boom joke. No offense intended. I completely love your observations. BTW, do you just do antiques or do you do collectibles as well? Curious.

  43. stixwiz said, on May 28, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    Not to fret Ted. Sometimes i do the straightman routine in response to Borscht, particularly when the sour cream is not dolloped copiously. Still have a bunch of nice paper from the years on the road such as books, postcards, stereoviews, magazines and various ephemera and arcana ~ no dishes or furniture as paper was my thang ~ specialite’ du Maison and all that.

    Collectibles pretty limited to Giants BB cards from ’54-91 or so and a few oddments of Giants memorabilia. Quite a few old magazines as well including many Lifes, some early 20th Century stuff and close to a full two-year run of Fortune from 33-34 including the one with the cigar band facsimilies. Perhaps it should get advertised one of these days.

    • TedSpe said, on May 28, 2011 at 11:06 pm

      Very cool. And yes, your straightman routine can at times make Bud Abbott feel shame. And as we all know, the sour cream on the goulash can cause multiple Jews sing DANCING IN THE DARK after dinner in such a high register that strokes have been known to be caused.
      I only asked about collectibles because I have a shitlod of film magazines, posters and lobby cards that, 7 years ago, was appraised at well over $100,000 but I haven’t had them re-appraised and I have no idea what the market is these days. I’m thinking worse.
      Plus, I have every Sinatra original LP on vinyl. And most of Dean and Sammy’s as well. So obviously, not a true antiqurian myself but…dig the shit.
      Cheers

  44. stixwiz said, on May 29, 2011 at 7:09 am

    Ted, your materials were hot, hot in the early 90’s. Judging from the identities of the collectors at that time, it’s doubtful that they have dropped much, if any, in value since that time. Of course the highest value material would be from the Golden Age of film, from the earliest Talkies to perhaps the mid-50’s. Needless to say, film classics of any era should retain value nicely.
