A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

New Contest!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 1, 2011

Hi–So it’s not going to be a contest for one of Twin’s kickass units. But one of our bloggers (Mailorderbride) wants to give her tickets away for the July 6th game v the Padres. The 2 seats are right behind homeplate in the view box section of the park. Even if you can’t go, enter the contest, you can give the tickets away if you win and can’t go.

Here’s the contest: How many runs will the Giants score in their 3 game series v the Tigers? First tie breaker is how many runs the Tigers will score. Second tie breaker is how many combined stolen bases the 2 teams have. So, submit 3 numbers to me at bigflavor77@gmail.com

I realize the game is starting in 3 hours so we might not have too many contestants but let’s see what we can get and have some fun. Thank you, in advance, Mailorderbride for this generous offer……

Pitching match ups:

Bum v Penny

Zito v Sherzer

Voggy v Porcello

they’re both pretty slow, Giants are 21st in league in SB’s, Tigers near the bottom at 27th…..

    By god Hall is awful, Sanchez with one arm could hit better than this guy.

    BW: Blown Win

    Burriss does not instill confidence in the field; lost. Is Avila related to Bobby Avila?

    • SanDawg said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:53 pm

      Nice usage of a semi-colon Pawlie!

  4. Rough Trade said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Bloody ridiculous. It’s time to shave.

  5. PawlieKokonuts said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    I know it’s Detroit, but some nice babes in the stands — dressed nicely, for Dennis.

    • xootsuit said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:51 pm

      You’re right about the babes behind the plate. As to Dennis, don’t encourage him, Pawlie. He’s at that pivotal stage . . . .

  6. eddacker said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    is there a double play ball in this guy?

  7. unca_chuck said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Jesus H fucking Christ, Wilson. ARE YOU SERIOUS?

  8. DJLoo said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    GET HIM THE FUCK OUT OF THERE!!!!

  9. unca_chuck said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    Wilson is falling off the table rather dramatically.

  10. eddacker said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    BW = forgot who is he is

  11. PawlieKokonuts said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    Wilson looked tired and defeated; lacked his presence. Plus, he stank.

  12. unca_chuck said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    Wilson;s having a little tamtrum in teh dugout for those of you not watching . . .

  13. eddacker said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    To persevere my happy home, I need to get back to bed.
    3:30 am
    like that is going to happen.
    sometimes the Brits n my life just do not understand

  14. Kevin said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    Shit did Wilson trade arms with Zit boy???

  15. unca_chuck said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    He manhandled the gatorade cooler and beat it to death with a bat.

  16. eddacker said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    here, we find out what Jeremy is made of. After his easy win in 2 innings the other night

  17. freshtodef80 said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    Manny, wtf?

  18. Kevin said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    No one is relaxed on the Giants, everyone is afraid of making a play

  19. eddacker said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    has Stewart ever been a game like this?

  20. DJLoo said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. freshtodef80 said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Yes!!!

  22. Flavor said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    wow. That ending…..wow……..

  23. eddacker said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    for all you do
    this one’s for you

  24. Kevin said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Shit, Huff took off his hat and took a deep breath

  25. macdog said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    Holy heart attack!

  26. Flavor said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    when Bosch hit that ball I was certain the game was over. And then I saw Crawford. And I was certain the game was over. Unbelievable game……..

    • PawlieKokonuts said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:48 pm

      true, true…man, I’d take Boesch on my team; kid can play

    • macdog said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:49 pm

      You nailed it, man. Oh no . . . oh yes!

      • PawlieKokonuts said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:51 pm

        that says it all…still don’t know how we wiggled out of it

  27. Del Mar Dennis said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    We LUCKED into that one. But as they say, I’d rather be LUCKY than good.

    Don’t get me wrong, the Giants are very good. But a little, no, check that, a shitload of luck never hurt anyone. “Luck Be a Lady Tonight.” Sing it Marlon Brando, sing it!

    • xootsuit said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:48 pm

      You’d rather be Diana. We know.

      • Del Mar Dennis said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:54 pm

        Counselor, get your shit correct. I’d rather be Kate…that’s assuming Alice Temperley’s dress that the Duchess of Cambridge wore at Wimbledon comes along with it…
        Fabulous.
        Simply fabulous.

  28. stixwiz said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Wheeeeeeeeew!

  29. PawlieKokonuts said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Sheeeeesh. Some awful play, but a W. I did not see any of yesterday’s game, but this was not pretty. Why does it feel like a loss to me even though it’s a win? Glad it’s over; glad we salvaged it. Nice fielding by Crawford; not by Burriss. Give Willie two days off.

  30. Kevin said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    Idiot in the studio, viewers didn’t see Wilson go off. Bullshit, I saw it

  31. unca_chuck said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    Yeah, I posted it earlier. Wilson beat up a gatorade cooler with a bat.

  32. eddacker said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    I am off, with a big basking simile, not even thinking about anything except
    WE WON!

    • Del Mar Dennis said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:58 pm

      Hey, Ed! You want a hot tip on a horse? So do I. Nothing here. If anything comes my way, I’ll be sure and let you know. I only release ’em when I get ’em. Until then, have a nice holiday over there across the pond.

  33. twinfan1 said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    Nice that another Panda clutch RBI didn’t go to waste—Wilson has too many pitches- no closer needs four. Get back to the basics…
    Very nice ABs from Nate and Cawford- and the Purple Heart for Brandon on that laser off his chest..

    Had ’em all the way..

    • EdGdsnInExile said, on July 1, 2011 at 9:13 pm

      Twin, really good point about Wilson. His intensity leads him to think he needs to continually ‘improve.’ Just needs to keep it simple and focused. He has good enough stuff.

  34. Bozo said, on July 1, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    Well that was easy, let’s play two.
    As this teams doctor and lawyer I suggest strongly that the Giants go out and drink heavily tonight.
    Hitting ten on the Wow meter, oh yeah – fuck you Cody.

    • xootsuit said, on July 1, 2011 at 8:16 pm

      As doctor for the fans, I suggest you medicate more complexly. We intend to.

  35. That's *mr* mrbill to you! said, on July 1, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Even though he’s struggling recently, Wilson has some serious ownage on beverage dispensing products!

    • willieD said, on July 1, 2011 at 8:32 pm

      and he’ll probably have a couple days off for some bp. jesus…blowing the one lead is one thing, but the 9th was fucked up. caught the last two innings on the radio…wtf was burriss doing on the play before?
      A’s are fucking up the dbacks right now…matsui stole a base and scored a run earlier…up 3-1 in 5th.

  36. twinfan1 said, on July 1, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    17-11 June- all things considered, fantastic month. No swoon…

    • unca_chuck said, on July 1, 2011 at 9:16 pm

      . . . if you enjoy juggling chainsaws . . .

  37. willieD said, on July 1, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    they were asking bochy couple days ago about managing til he was as old as McKeon…how many more years of wilson do you think he would survive?
