A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Tough Loss

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 16, 2012

But at least they put men on base. I love the 10 walks. And they battled back. Gregor Blano now has an OBP of .408. The White Shark is becoming “Torres 2010”. And with Nate brain-locking his end of the game at bat last night, I can’t imagine how Blanco sits in favor of a Nate start, unless he needs a day off or something.

I’m not really understanding what Bochy is going to do with Aubry Huff. Assuming Melky and Pagan are in the OF (and you can all stop dreaming about Pagan sitting, he’s 9 for his last 17) I can’t see how or why Huff would ever play in place of Blanco who absolutely has to be starting every game right now. And he wouldn’t start in front of Belt, would he? Maybe a spot start but what would be the point? Right now, Huff is just clogging up a roster spot.

Buster Posey is either hurt, hurting or coming up ant-small in the absence of The Panda. He’s got 4 rbi’s this month and hasn’t had an extra base hit since LAST month (he doubled on April 29th). Just a question, but who would you rather see hitting clean up right now? Posey or Pill?

Tonight we face Jaime Garcia. I’ll never forget that shut out he threw against us in the Summer of 2010. It was the last game of a long road trip, super hot day—I’ve never seen a limper, lamer collection of bats go down so meekly. I think he only threw like 84 pitches or something. Anyway, I’m hoping that our new found patience at the plate translates into something against this dude. He is not having a very good year and is giving up a boatload of hits (51 in 44 innings pitched)………

    Way to SmallBall it! Guess you really can put lipstick on a pig. 🙂

    • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 8:54 pm

      This is actually a good baseball game.

      • unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:00 pm

        If you enjoy miniscule RISP and men left on base.

      • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:03 pm

        4 LOB. 2-8 RISP. Good game.

      • mrmrbill said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:04 pm

        Aside from trying to get back that last run, yes. And sure isn’t gonna happen this inning. We’ve got 3 outs of the next 9 to do it.

        Unless mebbe Nate, Craw, and Emasculated throw their helmets at the ball.

    Run is a run is a run is a run

  6. snarkk said, on May 16, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Blanco is playing like the first real leadoff hitter the Giants have had in years…

    • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:10 pm

      2010? Another pathetic trashing of Torres.

      • snarkk said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:20 pm

        I didn’t realize Torres was the only Giants leadoff hitter in “years”.
        You being daily butt hurt about Sabes dealing him borders on, no, IS tiresome and ridiculous. He’s gone, get over it….

      • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:27 pm

        You said Banco was the first real lead off hitter in years. Torres played in 2010. Got it? Or is that still to tough? What’s tiresome is you taking every chance trash their WilleMac winner and key to the pennant drive. Just STFU with it.

    • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:13 pm

      Bochy’s Gay PJ parties is YOUR theory of why he prrefers the veterans.It was a joke, though, moron.

      • snarkk said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:21 pm

        Oh, so only YOU get to make jokes, and perjorative, discriminatory ones at that. I get it now…

      • snarkk said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:24 pm

        And, you prove where I’ve EVER used gay bashing as a means to make a joke in this blog. You can’t, because it never happened…

      • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:31 pm

        Gay bashing? God, you’re an idiot. Maybe you should go back to your Counselor Dan the Lawyer Man board game.

      • snarkk said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:37 pm

        You’re the one that came up with the disgusting “Gay PJ party” insult. Not me, nor anybody else.
        Like the other day when BF called you on trashing Hamilton for his alcoholism — both bare very troubling sensibilities and hypocritical stances…

      • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:40 pm

        You know damn well you’ve used that lame gay “man crush'” bullshit to explain what you perceive as his “preference” for the vets. I’m not fucking looking through archives for what we both know is the truth. The gay PJ party is just a parody of that and is no way gay bashing, you lowlife scumbag. Now THATwas just lowlife scumbag bashing, though. And I apologize to lowlife scumbags..

      • snarkk said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:44 pm

        Spouting that hogwash won’t wash. You’re making that up out of whole cloth, or confusing me with someone else.
        Disgusting that you’re trying to cover your bullshit insult, just like you tried to cover your tracks on that bullshit Hamilton insult. Go ahead and make up some more stuff, you’ve run off the rails now…

    • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:54 pm

      I have nothing to “cover” on either topic. But Craig does not want me to discuss Hamilton so I won’t. It’s just a fucking shame that a former friend of mine here has become a Snarkk pal.

  7. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Give it right back.

  8. Bozo said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    WTG Bum

    • Bozo said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:10 pm

      I meant the bloop hit he got.

  9. Alleykat said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Jamie Moyer continues to break “Every Oldest Baseball Players Records”

    Record breaking old man Jamie Moyer,who legend has it is older then dirt,legged out a two-run infield single tonight, becoming the geezeriest ballplayer to ever drive in a run.Pitcher Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers was 48the yrs 11 months,and six days when he hit a three run double back it 1932,so atleast Moyer still has another record to shoot for.

  10. Bozo said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    Ahh shit.

  11. mrmrbill said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    meh… I’m going to the game tomorrow, but I don’t think it’ll help. Despite their overall home record between 2009-present, they’re only .333 when *I I I* attend. Maybe it’s better if I skip tomorrow.

    • DJLoo said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:45 pm

      I understand tomorrow is “Lowlife Scumbag Bobblehead Day”…

      • mrmrbill said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:49 pm

        … which is why I’m going xtra early!

  12. DJLoo said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    “3 to tie – 4 to go home” ——Where’s Bobby Thomson when you need him?

    • unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:50 pm

      On the DL . . .

    • Alleykat said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:59 pm

      HE’S DEAD
      ,LIKE THE GIANTS OFFENSE.

  13. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Runners in scoring position in 5 out of 8 innings = one run.

    • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:59 pm

      Why do you watch? The games bring you nothing but misery. Watch some some good porn.

  14. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    Aubrey’s due . . .

  15. blade3colorado said, on May 16, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Good night all . . . I really enjoy the blog most days, but it is quite depressing when the same person can’t make his point without making the other person (commenting) look small and/or insulting the other person. I hate it when this place is like walking on egg shells.

    It has gotten to the point where Flav has to monitor this blog constantly . . . Even after warning everyone here that personal insults would not be tolerated on the blog. He has a life and shouldn’t have to do that.

    Twin, I have no idea what your problem is, but I’ve always been told you NEVER, EVER attack the people that love and care about you. I hope you can find it within yourself to see what I am talking about here and apologize to everyone that you have offended. Take care . . . Steve

    • unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2012 at 10:06 pm

      Don’t hold your breath. Mike’s on a roll.

    • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 10:55 pm

      No one here merits any apology for anything *I* said. You think throwing objects from the stands is funny, Snarkk hilariously dismissed Lawrie throwing his helmet at the umpire. Yes, AT. No one can watch that video and say he didn’t throw it at him .What’s MY problem? On any of tonight’s bullshit- nothing,no problem. Your pal even tried to turn what was OBVIOUSLY a joke into a gay slur. Yeah, right. I was really saying that Bochy, Pagan, Whitey, and Rowand are homosexuals and have weekly pajama parties..He’s either awesomely stupid or incredibly slanderous…
      Anyway, too bad you feel the way you do but I sincerely tried to be pleasant to Snarkk before I’d had enough of his cynicism and fabrications. Again. The helmet is a great example. It was thrown directly AT the umpire and could hardly have missed him. And Snarkkles tries to claim *I’M* lying. Look at it, and look at the thread. This is on the people who tried to excuse violence against umpires who miss calls. You owe *me* an apology,this is not the first time you’ve called me out instead of the person(s) who create the bullshit…
      And Chuck- stay out of it. You’ve always been drawn like a moth to a flame where there’s an argument that’s none olf your business.

      • snarkk said, on May 16, 2012 at 11:13 pm

        Dude, you’ve really got some anger and persecution issues.
        Seems that you’re disliking Blade now because he and I made a nice personal acquaintance. That’s unfortunate.
        He and I disagree on things, but when we do, we don’t resort to insults and name calling.
        He doesn’t owe you an apology of any kind.
        I’m done with this…

      • twinfan1 said, on May 16, 2012 at 11:57 pm

        It’s unfortunate that Steve feels the way he does but I am not angry that he has become your friend. I’m not happy that he has apparently taken up your cynical view of sport. You have zero idea of my life and disposition and are never to presume you do. And it is not for you to determine who is owed an apology. Again, I wish Steve hadn’t come to feel the way he does but I speak truthfully, and as to baseball, intelligently. If he or anyone else can not understand where I’m truly coming from,too bad. I will never apologize for who or what I am again- the trouble here originates with “your kind”, the kind who do not understand real life or the world of sport. I have really enjoyed blogging here and sharing my love and understanding of the game. But it’s become very difficult physically so I’m sure as hell not going to put up with your BS. The “epic” idiocy supporting a moron who threw a dangerous object at a man over a pitch call is just the latest example. If Flavor doesn’t ban me for being right again, just don’t bother me.

    bleeeeeeeeeeh.

    Well, the Grizzlies put up a decent fight tonight.
    Melky better come back ASAP…

  19. Nipper said, on May 16, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    Another tough loss…..at home.

  20. mrmrbill said, on May 16, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    well… we didn’t *lose* any ground on the Dodgers, past 2 nights in a row. So we got that going for us. Which is nice.

  21. twinfan1 said, on May 17, 2012 at 12:02 am

    The *Giants* are in a mini-slump.Very mini, considering there has been another injury run. The real Grizzlies have some better players than in recent years. Those of you who can should check them out.
