A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Another Dog Pile Finish to an Important Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 28, 2011

We’ve now scored 7 runs in the last 4 games and have improbably won 3 of them. If we had won all 4 you can bet that the guys at Elias would be trotting out a stat about least runs scored over 4 straight wins since 1897 or whatever….

I’m a little surprised that The Panda is the favorite for September MVP. He really hasn’t been hitting since he hurt his shoulder and the fact that he still can’t swing from the right side is a huge concern. It’s also a testament to his resolve that he is playing through all these injuries…….

Surkamp’s debut was noteworthy not because of his pin point control, which he didn’t really show last night, and not for dazzling stuff, which he doesn’t really have except for his curve ball, but rather for his ability to gut his way through 6 innings giving up a single run that really should go to Huff’s ERA, not his. It’s got to be so much more difficult for a starting pitcher to make his debut than for a position player to make one. All eyes are on you for every single pitch you throw. A dude making his debut in right field can pick daisies for half the game and really only get noticed at the plate or when he makes 3 or 4 plays a game in the field. The kid probably had some normal butterflies. His debut is out of the way and he finished it on top of a dog pile win. How great must that have felt for him?

And finally, welcome back Andres Torres. Ross has not been boss in your absence. Rowand has been…..well, you know. Here’s hoping that your presence in CF and at the top of the LU has a propelling effect on a team in desperate need of a jump start….

And now for a shout out to a great Giants fan, here a 2 pics of BLADE’S 2nd cousin Victoria as she met both The Panda and The Belt at an autograph signing down in Santa Clara.

    My goodness, Brian Johnson was not exactly HOF worthy… or the now, uh, “unliked” JSanchez last September.. there are hundreds..

  2. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    was I the only one who predicted he’d be the Sept MVP? Or do I just not know who “Vungo” is? Twin, your nicknames are the worst of the worst. Even worse than Chuck’s and his are horrible. What the fuck is a Vungo?

  3. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Vungo came from Torres., old news:

    http://www.facebook.com/Andres.Yungo.Torres

    My nicknames are the fucking best, pal. Freddy’s wife now calls him “Fruckie”..

    • DJLoo said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:07 pm

      Nevertheless, “What the fuck is a Vungo?” is a very valid question…

      • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:10 pm

        Ask him, I didn’t fucking make it up. It may be a valid question, but not for me.

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:08 pm

      you’re calling him his middle name? Dumb.
      Fruckie was passable and easily your best. Grok? Also dumb. You called Timmy Burger Boy or something like that. Awful. There were others that failed to inspire. Not everyone is good at coming up with nicknames, don’t sweat it.

      • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:12 pm

        Just wondering – who is Grok?

      • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:14 pm

        Miller has been using it all year.,Baggarly:”The amazing, amazing Andres (Vungo) Torres, DeRosa feeling optimistic, early congrats to Jon Miller”..Look you hadn’t heard it, don’t turn that on me.

      • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:15 pm

        what is Grok? Ha, exactly. Twin gets that a lot when he floats a nickname out there…..

      • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:21 pm

        Why the fuck are you picking a fight just because you didn’t know that many called him that? Leave it go.

      • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:24 pm

        I’m not picking fight. I’ve given you my opinion before on the nicknames you come up with. Grok? Idiotic. Notice how no one ever calls him that but you?

  4. willieD said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    On a lighter note, during SF broacasts they show a buick commercial (odd enough right there) and behind the babbling is part of the original version of “I Put a Spell on You” by Screamin Jay Hawkins. This guy was one of the all time HOF performers. there are a couple hilarious live youtube versions, plus the original single 1956 is pretty outrageous all by itself. The wikpedia bio on him is great, and I bet the real story even better.
    sadly, he is no longer around to tell it. I think even John carroll of the chron did a column on him

  5. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    Nicknames have to be clever. They can’t be the fat guy you call Tiny. And they can’t be something that makes no sense. That’s why my Dirrrrrty Sanchez nickname has been such a big hit. Dragon Warrior for Voggy should have caught on but I think it was too much for the masses to process……

  6. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    I also find Snarkk’s “Ro–hand” to be uninspiring. It’s also possible that I don’t get it. Beat off joke? Anyway, it never caught on for me

    • twinfan1 said, on August 29, 2011 at 2:26 am

      Well, then tell him what a dumb fuck he is-for hours on end. At least it would be true in his case.

  7. blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    One syllable – yes, two syllable – maybe . . . After that, it’s similar to naming your dog, Frederick.

    Fred works just fine.

  8. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    Listen up-middle name or not, many have used Vungo as a nickname, You are not the fucking nickname police.

  9. blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    Still wondering who Grok is???? We’ve established that Jon Miller anointed a Giant this name. Who?

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:20 pm

      I’m pretty sure Grok was Twin’s creation–It’s Nate…….

  10. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    The morning Idiots call Dirrrrty: “Chez”. That’s in the same neighborhood as calling a guy the opposite of what he looks like. Baseball nicknames are usually horribly obvious. Everyone has a “y” added to the end of their name. Boring. Gimmie a Big Flavor or better yet a “Mount Shady”. That one still has room to grow……..

    • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:23 pm

      Mount Shady! Sac le bleu! That’s your nickname Flav. Do you know why I know? Because I recall the email you sent me this morning using that moniker in the address.

      • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:29 pm

        ha, you wanna know why that happens? My friend downloaded the new 4G software on to my 3G iPhone and he slipped some “greeting” or whatever in there and that’s it. So whenever I send an email from my phone from my gmail account it’s signed “Mount Shady”. I only use it for personal stuff, friends, blog, family, etc so I don’t really care about fixing it……

  11. DJLoo said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    I once dated a girl who my friends nicknamed “Mooseface Moran”.

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:30 pm

      “Moon Man Minton”– now THAT was a good nickname.
      The guys from the 30’s have us all put to shame……..

      • ewisco said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:23 pm

        and he was a joy to watch.

        before he signed the big contract.

        I remember someone asking him why his pitch broke downward so much and his answer was that he didn’t know. then he got injured and couldn’t figure out how to re-create it.

        him and lavelle and . . .

      • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:30 pm

        Al Holland. Not a closer, but a stud reliever from the same time period, maybe a few years later than Minton’s and Lavelle’s best days…….

  12. blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    If I was to guess – the origins sound Neanderthal, so I would guess Rowand, right?

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:22 pm

      Nate. I think it was twin’s attempt at some reverse racism humor. It failed.

  13. blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    I could have sworn there was a “Grok” character in the movie, One Million Years B.C.

    I think Grok played Raquel Welch’s caveman suitor.

  14. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    It’s Schierholtz. Do a Google image search for “neanderthal man” and you’ll see why..I think his injury is actually an opposable thumb sprain..they’re tender when new..

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:31 pm

      now see, THAT was actually funny.

      • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:37 pm

        Craig, you just don’t get most of them. Even though I explained it, you still don’t get how funny it was when Chuckles accused me of “anti-white ” commentary while I was supporting Huff and Keppinger..

      • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:50 pm

        You didn’t need to explain anything, I got it. I just didn’t find it as funny as you did.

    • ewisco said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:27 pm

      except it was his foot. foot, thumb, maybe in the twin cities they’re equivalent.

      and i was thinking about this today because i’ve never been amused by grok, but if you look at rowand, why wouldn’t you poke fun at his facial profile? he looks like a little too much inbreading in the apps.

      • ewisco said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:28 pm

        inbreeding, though a good panko rub can work wonders.

  15. blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Loo, when I lived in Hawaii, we had this girl we all called MamaZooka . . . That being said, she beat up boys for shit and giggles, i.e., it wasn’t very wise to call her that to her face.

  16. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    I’d post the pic here, buut Flavor doesn’t like it. The neanderthal Grok is a spittiing image of Nate

    • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:32 pm

      I just went there . . . they have quite a few representative images, including the insurance caveman guys too. LQTM.

  17. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    This just isn’t the place for it. Chuck’s blog is “anything goes” though. You can post a racist picture of someone and then threaten to kill them. It’s all shits and giggles over there—till someone gets arrested or killed……

  18. blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Yeah, that’s some crazy shit if someone is making death threats toward someone on the 49ers . . . Is Chuck aware of this? In fact, where is Chuck – fairly certain he hasn’t been around this weekend.

    • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:42 pm

      Is Chuck aware? He was right there during the exchanges. He’s totally aware of it.

  19. willieD said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    There was a white guy drafted in the 70s that played a couple years in the NBA out of columbia, Dave “Nice News” Newmark.

    Loo I do remember Neal walk of the phoenix suns, hairy guy with a nice soft touch left handed hook shot. Once saw Nate thurmond swat that thing right back over his head.
    I promise no more b-ball shit til saturday. I’m only twenty minutes away from flav’s buddy’s joint in los altos. I appreciate those who would make a much longer trip than that. Should be fun, as it is here.

  20. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    Racist? We’re all descended from them, Nate just isn’t as far along..

  21. blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Flav, how are you doing in your other FL leagues? I will declare victory in the other league I am in (insurmountable lead), but it would seem you and Tizzle have a two way battle for the Flap title and everyone else is competing for 3rd.

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:54 pm

      All 4 of my leagues are still up in the air. 7th (out of 12) in NFBC online fantasy championships but there are points to be made daily, wild swings still possible due to wins and strike outs-that one only pays top 2 though.. 3rd in ESPN league (out of 10) and I will be winning that one once my batting average and sb’s sort themselves out–I have a 2.28 team ERA and a 1.04 WHIP and I lead the league in SO’s and wins. that’s almost impossible to do. 3rd in an online auction league (out of 12), that one pays out the most, I stand to win 5K there. And then there is the Yahoo Flap League. So, all in all, nicely positioned but nothing is guaranteed in any of them……..

  22. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    I’ve already said it’s possible I don’t get them. But that’s part of the problem for you if you’re making up nicknames and using them when others don’t use them. In fact, they aren’t really nicknames at that point, they’re just you calling someone something and that being the end of it.
    “Vungo” sounds like a car produced in Uzbekistan in the 70’s. Super affordable. Only to be recalled and discontinued due to spontaneous implosions at stop signs….
    “Dude, I fucked myself and bought a Vungo. It was all I could afford but when it exploded at 4th and King I realize I should spent the extra rubles……

    • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 7:55 pm

      Vungo has been used by hundreds before me, including, as I said: Miller and Baggarly. Attacking me over using it is really dumb..

      • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:02 pm

        It was used as the header in a blog about the Mission, here on SFGate. in July of LAST year “OnBase: Vungo!” I can list hundreds more uses, but why don’t you just let it go? You erroneously thought I made up the nickname, you were wrong, let it go.,

      • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:03 pm

        well no one uses it here. And you should have realized it was dumb and acted accordingly. And I don’t see why you are calling it “attacking” that seems a little over the top. I think it’s funny. I’m having fun. I’m entertaining myself at the end of the worst day of the week. I might go search for the best baseball nicknames of all time. As I said earlier, most will be coming from the 20’s and the 70’s. *Vungo* is unlikely to make the list……

  23. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    in fact, that’s going to be tomorrow’s thread. List off your favorite baseball nicknames of all time. Don’t fucking do it now. Wait. Jack the Ripper? Moonman Minton? Hackman Leonard? Will the Thrill? Vungo Torres? Grok Schierholtz? There are a million of them.

  24. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    It wasn’t dumb, you making a BFD deal of it is dumb. And it HAS been used here. I’ll look for it only if you put bucks up. Here’s what a person does when an un\famiar nickname comes up: He fucking ASKS about it. You were wrong,

  25. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    I don’t recall anyone here using Vungo or Grok but you. I guess it’s possible that in a response to a post you made someone used the same name. And you’ve got access to the edit feature, why would I bet on something that could be manipulated?
    But keep ’em coming, if you use them enough times they might catch on here……..

  26. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    I didn’t say Grok was used. And STFU about Vungo, it’s a commonly used nickname for him. Whether it’s used here is irrelevant. you’re insuting him by saying it’s dumb.

  27. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    Classic Twin. Now I’m *insulting* Vungo. If he gave himself a dumb ass nickname, that’s not my fault. If someone said “Big Flavor” has an inferiority complex and a small dick because of his overcompensating nickname that he gave himself would I feel insulted? No. But if those same fellows tried to take down the Mount Shady moniker, heads would roll and I would reign blows down upon them….. It’s all in how you look at it Twin, stop taking every post so seriously and have a little fun for once……..

  28. DJLoo said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Someone from last year used it all the time. I think it was wswinb4igo.

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:33 pm

      ha, of COURSE you pulled that out of thin air. I would call you Rain Man but that would be something obvious and not close to honoring your genius, Loo……

    • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:37 pm

      No shit . . . Steel trap mind Loo. The only thing more amazing is that Twin pulled the actual date and time wswinb4igo said this. Double WOW!!

      • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:40 pm

        its easy, do a google search and it all pops up

  29. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    wswinb4igo said, on July 23, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    Interesting, Andres Torres middle name is Vungo. To me, a combination of the legendary Van Lingle Mungo… I like it, in a Nuschler sort of way. Go Vungo!

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:37 pm

      as I said, if I never heard it, it’s entirely possible that I skipped past wswinb4Igo’s use of it because it was a stupid fucking nickname and I got to the point where I skipped past about 84% of what that guy posted. Stop finding random bloggers who have used it. You’re the only one who uses it now and I find it a lame nickname, one that I found out tonight you did not create. Shocker, cause it was right up your usual nickname alley….

  30. ewisco said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    i’ve never heard vungo. or at least if i did, i didn’t hear it enough to make sense of it. i don’t like grok. if he wasn’t prematurely balding you wouldn’t have much of a case. so maybe you’re amused at something that someone can’t control but i’m not a fan.

    • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:40 pm

      Well,I don’t like Bonehead, Botchy, Fat Panda, Rentardia,Tenada, on and on. In short, I could give a shit if you like it.

      • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:43 pm

        no one does, it’s idiotic, lame and boring. It’s Splash shit though so, as I said, right up your alley…….

      • twinfan1 said, on August 29, 2011 at 2:17 am

        Stop insulting me just because you were ignorant of Torres’ nickname. Snarkkles has used all that shit and worse.

  31. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    Mount Shady sounds like something Yogi would name himself. I like Big Flavor much more, it brings to mind a couple of brothers I knew who got thrown out of about every restaurant in Santa Rosa that had free hors d’ouevres. They’d go through the line and empty the food.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:38 pm

      LQTM . . . Now that was funny 🙂

    • big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:39 pm

      actually, Big Flavor reminds me of a gay, out of work porn star. I accepted a long time ago that it had it’s limitations but I kept with it. Not really bummed about the decision…..

  32. big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    I’d like to point out that I’m the only one here who predicted Vungo would be the team’s Sept MVP so i had better get used to referencing this snappy nick name…….

    • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:51 pm

      That would be a good idea. I’ll note that you hedged your prediction by saying you “hoped” he’d be the September MVP..

      • Big flavor said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:59 pm

        Well he wasn’t your pick, was he? Lip service only goes so far

      • twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:25 pm

        No, he wasn’t. I don’t jump and off like you do., you were fucking savaging him for weeks. You saw my reason- it better fucking be the shithead they gave up their best pitching prospect for. I pick the winner anyway., it’s my contest.

  33. twinfan1 said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Birthin’ Denny used it too. The reference is from Google so no bullshit I did anything to it.
    “delmardennis said, on August 2, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    Speak of the devil, Baggs just came out with a good read on Torres. Of note, his middle name is actually “Yungo,” not “Vungo” as noted in the media guide. Actually, it’s a nickname given to him by his friends back home in Puerto Rico”

    • DJLoo said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:50 pm

      Imagine the fun we’ll have if Villalona ever gets here…

      • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 8:55 pm

        Throw these out Mad Dog Villalona, Baby Face Villalona, Machine Gun Villalona, Scarface Villalona, Clyde Villalona . . . You get the idea.

  34. EdGdsnInExile said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    I used Vungo here for Torres just the other day, probably meaning Yungo. I want to say I actually saw it on an ESPN player card or something at some point. For most names and nicknames created or used by the players I assume they mean something to them, so I respect them. Names that are made up here I don’t.

  35. zumie said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Here’s one of the worst in my opinion. “Donnie Baseball” Mattingly. That’s the kind of lameness I expect out of Yankee fans.
    Teddy “Ballgame” Williams is pretty bad, too. I think he had another nickname that was better, but I can’t remember it.
    Wasn’t there an old Giants player that was called The Flea? Not good.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:09 pm

      Splendid Splinter

      • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:11 pm

        He was also called “The Kid” and “The Thumper”

      • blade3colorado said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:12 pm

        However, women called him “Big Flavor”

        JUST KIDDING 😉

      • zumie said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:14 pm

        That’s the one; yeah, that one’s pretty good. I thought that was Babe Ruth’s, though. Besides “Babe,” I mean.

    • DJLoo said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:13 pm

      The Chiefs had a running back, Warren McVea, nicknamed “The Flea”.
      He was a teammate of Noland Smith, nicknamed “The Super Gnat”.

    whatever

  38. zumie said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    How quickly the giraffe stuff started happening is the price you pay for so many bandwagon fans jumping onboard. They’re there for the event as much as anything about baseball itself. The cutesy-ness thing is periously close to completely jumping the shark. It’s great marketing, from the Giants standpoint, but it’s a baseball team, it’s not the Jonas Brothers. But….all those sell-outs might get us Pujols next season, or so I hope. (grin)

    • DJLoo said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:16 pm

      I agree, Zumie. You never see that in NY. The Cone-heads at Shea 20 years ago were homemade…

    • bbl & waves said, on August 28, 2011 at 9:56 pm

      Couldn’t agree with you more Zumie. I didn’t even know about the “baby Giraffe” thing until my wife filled me in (she works with the Giants once in a while for certain charities) and WTF? This kid isn’t even established yet, not that I don’t have high hopes for him but come on, putting up a huge marketing campaign about a kid that’s still learning the game is BS. Let the kid do his thing, like he doesn’t have enough fucking pressure on him already. Hell, if we’re making stupid ass giraffe costumes imagine what the Nationals are doing for Harper? Ah, they’re not.. I love the organization as much as the next guy but it’s over the fucking top and pre-mature. Nice to see you flappers, enjoy the night.

      • zumie said, on August 28, 2011 at 10:21 pm

        The giraffe hats may not be the Giants’ product yet. There are a lot of bootleg vendors on that Bay walk to the ballpark. It could be bootleg stuff. But, yeah, there is money to be made and the Giants WILL jump on the giraffe hat thing, if they haven’t already.

    The worst nickname I ever heard was Gilbert Arenas calling himself, the “Hibachi.” He said, “You know, a hibachi grill gets real hot. That’s what my shot’s like, so I’ve been calling it that: ‘Welcome to the hibachi’.” That’s what Arenas (a.k.a “Agent Zero,” “Eastern Assassin”) once shouted at his opponents when his shots were falling.

    His opponents probably said, “That’s lame.”

    . . . and who can forget “He Hate Me” Rod Smart.

    Sorry to interrupt this stellar string about nicknames…. About Torres: someone said it looked like there were too many high expectations that Torres would be the team’s savior down the stretch. Someone else said he ‘hopes’ that is true. I didn’t vote for a Sept. MVP (I don’t vote in online polls) but if I had, I would’ve voted for Torres, mainly because I think the team needs him to light the spark just because no one else is doing it. If he’s their Sept. MVP, I tend to think they make the playoffs, and if he’s not, then I think they probably won’t. Time will tell…

      I would love for him to be the guy, I just think that they acquired Beltran to be the “Big Dog”. I hope Vundo is in real good shape, after seeing Beltran, Torres is going to be covering a lot of ground.

    I understand the dislike for the nickname “Grok”. Nate still has his cult, without doubt the biggest cult in baseball history for a guy with virtually no significant accomplishment. But look, many people have neanderthal features.. Winston Churchhill did, Chelsea Clinton, Steve Jobs- the brow ridge is often the identifying feature. Nate is just a mite coser to the source father, if you follow. His “I, Hunter” gait is also characteristic…

    Yeah, Beltran was certainly supposed to be one of the big dogs. I still think he will hit, and boy, wouldn’t that be nice. But yeah, Torres both on defense and at bat will likely still be the key. Could use a Ross or Huff getting hot too, and of course it’s possible… just haven’t seen any sign that will happen. While others here say Torres has been terrible this year, he still seems like the most likely to pull out a hot month.

    Goodnight. Here’s hoping Huffy, Keppy, Miggy, Whitey, Brandi… can pull this off.

    “I was just thinking. ‘Oh, God, Oh, God,’ before I was getting in the box,” the 12-year-old Pratto said. “But once I got into the box, I calmed myself by telling myself to just look for a good pitch.” Quote from the Little Leaguer who had the Little League World Series Championship game-winning hit with 2 outs and the bases loaded in the 9th inning. Maybe he can be SF’s new batting coach….

    Ted had some posts to Room B blocked and asked me why I did it . I do not manage those things, Craig does. It seems it got erroneously detected as Spam. You need to contact Craig about that stuff. Im just another Vundo Fan Club member..
