A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Hats off and Bow Down to Honor The Dragon Warrior…….

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 6, 2011

Unfortunately, DW has only pitched 53.2 innings this year. Had he pitched at least 59 he would be the current ERA leader of the National League at 1.68 (Josh Johnson is actually lower at 1.64 but he’s on the DL so I’m not counting him). His WHIP (1.04) is impregnable, his opp BA (.214) is impetuous and he’s just ferocious…..

I wonder what pitching starved teams are thinking this morning. The Giants, with arguably the best staff in baseball, just picked the NL ERA leader clean off the scrap heap. That HAS to have a guy like Brian Cashman shaking his head…..

I’d also like to see a Sports Illustrated story on this ASAP. It should be on the cover. The 126 million dollar headache has been relieved by the $414,000 castoff. The picture could be of Voggy doing a Kung Fu move on Zito’s head. That might get me to buy my first SI since probably the late 90’s….

Try to get your brain to process this: Ryan Andrew Vogelsong, a guy we drafted in the 5th round in 1998 and traded away on July 30th, 2001 has made Barry Zito disappear. He’s freaking Houdini……

This is insane…..

It’s absurd……

The Dragon Warrior is the best story in baseball this year…….

took a snap shot of my monitor at work today. From left to right: a Hackman baseball card. In front of that is the action figure of Hackman (a gift from Kokonuts). Then the Ross bobblehead, then the Timmy bobblehead. Not sure how many of you got th Ross bobblehead but he looks black……

    Are people in other countries as obsessed with round numbers as we are here?

  2. DJLoo said, on June 6, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    Al Kaline retired with 399 homers. Years later, he commented that had he known what a big deal people would make out of it, he would have hung around and hit one more.

  3. snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    Appropos of nothing:
    Rohand was the #35 pick in the 1998 draft.
    Zito was #9 pick in the 1999 draft…

    There was a name on that quickest to 1,000 K list that I haven’t see in awhile, Mark Langston. I bought a shitload of his 1984 Topps rookie card back when I was still at Salesian High School. Needless to say it wasn’t one of my better investments. .99 cents on eBay.

    • xootsuit said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:00 pm

      You bet a load of shit, and you broke even.

    • Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:05 pm

      Though I’ll never forget Langston helped me cash a nice parlay back in the early ’90’s when he was pitching for the Halos. I was staying at the Peppermill in Reno. Pretty sure I pissed away those winnings later that night at the Hold ‘Em tables.

    • mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:09 pm

      I had one of the original Billy Ripken ’89 “Fuck Face” cards (prior to the convoluted corrections). Sadly, maybe $5 at best, today. It had briefly flirted with the $500 range back in the day.

  5. DJLoo said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    RHP Crick with 2nd pick…
    Sam Wheat so far: 3 IP – 1 hit – 0 ER

    • Flavor said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:04 pm

      If I’m in the draft war room, Ii think I’d give serious consideration to what the name of the player is. No one named “Crick” is ever going to be a successful mlb pitcher…..

      • DJLoo said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:08 pm

        The name “Panik” gives you confidence?

      • Flavor said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:09 pm

        no. that’s my point. Bad draft pick. It’s all in the name……

      • Flavor said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:10 pm

        too close to Patek. Freddy Patek was probably a guy you remember, right Loo? He played middle infield for the Royals I think. late 70’s?

      • Rough Trade said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:14 pm

        That mean you would have nixed Posey?

      • xootsuit said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:27 pm

        Lincecum? LinceCUM? You wanna draft that name? Fucking idiot.

      • Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:47 pm

        I’ve always felt a man’s first name reveals a lot about his character. For instance, I think guys with monosyllabic names sound friendly and trustworthy. Guys named Bill, Dave, Joe, John, Mark, Matt, Paul and Steve are guys I’m more likely to trust and offer my friendship.

        Me? I have two syllables. You know I’m a conniving son of a bitch.

  6. Flavor said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    Lannan sucks. The only thing that’s saving him is luck. We’re hitting the ball hard it’s just right at people. We’ll get this fuck the 2nd time around……
    I’m still not really feelin’ this Marc Jackson thing. ESPN analyst?

  7. Flavor said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    It’s a glorious evening when USC gets stripped of one of their national titles . I LOVE it.

    • Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:18 pm

      I was telling people that ship was sinking when the first rat (Pete Carroll) jumped ship to the Seahawks.
      Pete knew the ride was over on the S.S.U.S.C Titanic.

      And, yes, I know the Titanic was a Royal Mail Steamer. Play along.

    • snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:31 pm

      Ditto.
      Tommy Trojan — takin’ it in the shortz for being the cheater we all knew he was.
      Next up, THE Ohio State Tressels…

  8. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    The NL East OWNS us this year. And Timmy’s numbers continue to smoke pole vs the Nats.
    You guys better hope we don’t get the Phillies in the first round. Sayanora.

  9. Flavor said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    Who gives a shit what our numbers are against the NL East this year. We didn’t seem to have a problem with them last October….

  10. mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Uh… Timmy’s a little distracted? 19, 20, and 30 respectively, first three innings.

  11. DJLoo said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    Yes he was was a little SS, Flav. Played for PIT, too. I remember the shot of him sobbing in the Royal dugout after Chambliss’ HR in ’76…

  12. DJLoo said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Interesting that the Giants drafted a SS who plays right in the Mets backyard. A possible chip in a Reyes deal?

  13. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    What’s the deal with HP umps getting hurt during our games? The other guy pulled a calf muscle and now this.
    Sack up.

  14. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Timmy’s not feeling it tonight . . .

    Dennis, it’s fucking June 6th and you’re worried about playoff matchups?

    Gawwwwd. Yer head’s gonna explode by August. Pace yourself . . .

    • mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:34 pm

      19-20-30-20 pitches/inning for Timmy. Gonna be a long night.

  15. DJLoo said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Ever eat this, Xoot?

  16. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    89 to 51 in pitch count.

    Getting beat by John Lennon?

    Help!!!

    • DJLoo said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:35 pm

      Tim’s been a fool on the hill tonight.

    • TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:37 pm

      As long as it’s not I’m A Loser

  17. TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    I’ve eaten it. And every time I ask for Roz I get a…..

  18. twinfan1 said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    ” Timmy’s not feeling it tonight . . .”
    How genteel of you, Chuckles.

  19. Rough Trade said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    He has been a bit wobbly since that 133 pitch effort against Oakland.

    • twinfan1 said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:47 pm

      He bulked up for that, remember?

      • Rough Trade said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:49 pm

        Ah, that’s right!

        Tale of the tape: 12 runs in his last 18 1/3

  20. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Timmy’s back to not paying attention to these baserunners.

    This guy;s going for 3rd . . .

  21. TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    Nix looks like he’s gotta cock in his mouth
    Guy should lay off the gum or chaw or whatever

  22. TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    I apologize for that last post. I think I’m getting a little frustrated

    • Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:07 pm

      You never should have to apologize for suggesting cock in the mouth.
      My father told me to go suck cock once…once!

  23. Rough Trade said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    Zits just struck out the side in the 6th. No runs, 2 hits, 6k’s, 0 walks.

    • TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:05 pm

      The man’s a fucking stud!!!

    • Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:14 pm

      Is he hitting at all?

  24. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    We have ONE fucking hit thru five…and that was our first batter, Gomez.
    Call the Mets, NOW!

    • TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:04 pm

      And ask them out for tea?

    • Rough Trade said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:21 pm

      Just when I was about to rip Rowand…

  25. TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    The sad part is…Rowand pooped a little rounding 2nd base

    • Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:24 pm

      I did too . . .

      Crawfish is looking a little fertummelt out there

  26. mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    … got ’em right where we want ’em now.

  27. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    Rowand hit his first homer since April 3 off of Broxton and it comes when we’re down 4-0 in the B7?
    In the accent of Maggie from “Caddyshack,” “Well tanks for nottin’!”

  28. TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    Kruk: ” And Whiteside hits this one softly….”
    Uh huh

  29. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    “That’s ALLL I need!!!”

    Seriously, getting a run is a GOOD thing.

  30. Macdog said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Hey, maybe that’s why Gillaspie’s up!

    • Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:27 pm

      I think it’s to show off that shiny new helmet . . .

  31. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    I hate Carl’s Jr. That is THE most annoying ad in history.

  32. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    I guess after Rowand hit his homer the only question from Amy G. in the postgame should be…
    “How about a Fresca?”

    • TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:31 pm

      Amy G. asked me if I wanted a Fresca once…once!!!

  33. TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Was that soph?

  34. xootsuit said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    25 sell outs at home. The Giants have already gone over 1 million.

  35. TedSpe said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    CODY

  36. twinfan1 said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    Well, it’s looking dire for Tejada now- no way you can make an out against a guy built like me..

  37. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    There’s one thing that’s there’s NO Whitey denying, there’s no quit in this team.
    Love their intestinal fortitude.

    Huff Daddy with the bloop…we’ll take it. He had it coming.

  38. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    Nice AB by Ross there.

    Nicer seeing eye hit by Huffie . . .

  39. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    See Dennis? Row Row’s HR HELPS . . .

  40. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    A two-homer night for Rowand?

    • Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:56 pm

      Take a fucking picture, Aaron. Swing the fucking bat. Oh well, hey, BC with a bloop…
      Here comes Nate…

  41. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:56 pm

    Nate the late-inning Great?

  42. Macdog said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    Nate does it again!

  43. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 9:59 pm

    Here comes Nate…How bout that shit! I love this team.

  44. ferrethead said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    How awesome is this?!?!?! One thing about my G-men, they sure a bunch of drama queen/crisis junkies!!! Yikes, I need some anti-anxiety meds just to get through a game!

  45. Macdog said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    Pat, swing the friggin’ Bat!

  46. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    Wow. Great inning, but dogshit AB by Burrell. Is he afraid to swing? Both those fastballs were there for the swinging.

    • snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:08 pm

      The Bat is not making a case for himself to hang around when all these roster moves have to be made…

  47. snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    I could take credit with rally bourbon. But, I’ve been away. Great recovery to tie it. Wilson needs to shut it down now, then I’ll head for the bourbon to launch the bottom of the 9th…

  49. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    The was the WORST fucking AB from the Bat I’ve seen all year. He looked at THREE pitches right down the cock. Unacceptable from a guy coming off the bench. You cannot be looking at pitches in that situation. He looked like he was trying to work the walk.

    My sister made me work the walk once…once!

  50. Unca Chuck said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    Un-fucking-canny by Nate.

    Dude is money deep in the game.

    Weez, no fucking around. . .

    Yesterday’s deal I could get used to . . .

  51. Rough Trade said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    Brian Wilson 24th rd pick.

    • snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:14 pm

      That’s what I call value-added…

  52. snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    Alright, the bourbon is coming out.
    This onerungameninthinningchewnails shit is getting sinfully addictive…

  53. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    I hope Bochy and Gomez realize that Pudge still has one of, if not the best arms i n all of baseball.
    Never mind. Nice bunt, Miggy.

  54. ferrethead said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    Way to take advantage of being one ump down…

  55. Macdog said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    That was ballsy.

    • snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:21 pm

      Ballsy since he made it. Nutz if he got thrown out…

  56. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    Wow. That was close. Gomez was safe, but we’ve seen that played get hosed many a times…

    Ringling Brothers time…

    Excuse me, but FFFFUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  58. DJLoo said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    This team just doesn’t let you go to bed…

  59. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:26 pm

    Shit. When all we need is a sac fly…is the suicide squeeze still in Bochy’s vocabulary? I know that wasn’t what everyone was thinking at the time…that’s what makes it a surprise.

  60. mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    After this, I’ll relax with a little late-night night skydiving in my new discount parachute.

  61. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    How bout that pick by Crawford? I dig Miggy’s choice to get the lead out, but nice scoop there young man…

  62. UsedtobebigSarge said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    Helluva play by miggy….Affeldt frightens me

  63. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    You guys can thank me later for Werth’s 0 fer 5…he’s on my fantasy team.

    • mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:35 pm

      Sabean’s job is still safe, then?

      • Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:38 pm

        With all fairness, Werth was an autopick from the yahoo fantasy rankings. He was given to me.
        Next thing I know you’ll tell me he’s Polish.

    • Macdog said, on June 6, 2011 at 11:45 pm

      Freddy the 13th!

  64. Rough Trade said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    Affeldt walks?? Unbelievable. That pitcher should be flogged.

  65. mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    With the way we’ve gone through the bench tonight, I guess Amy G. gets an AB this inning?

  66. mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Urban tweets Zitos final line tonight: 82 pitches, 2 hits, zero walks, HBP, 2 DPs, 1 over minimum, 6 2/3 innings. Standing O from #SFGiants fans. Waves to crowd.

    • snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 11:28 pm

      He’s met his proper professional level…

  67. ferrethead said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    C’mon guys, I’m supposed to be sleeping…end this fucker!!!

  68. mrmrbill said, on June 6, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    I thought the Nats were s’posed to be tired tonight, from yesterday’s 14 innings.

  69. Del Mar Dennis said, on June 6, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    We’re intentionally walking my POS fantasy fuck Werth who’s 0 fer 5 tonight to face my fellow mental midget and Pfizer supporter? More beer please.

  70. ferrethead said, on June 6, 2011 at 11:25 pm

    Gotta hit the sack…if they don’t do it this inning, I’ll read about it in the morning. G’night, Flappers!

  71. snarkk said, on June 6, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    I’m done with the bourbon, gotta hit the sack.
    Good luck Gigantes…
