A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Game Time Thread!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 21, 2013

Bored at work today, me and a buddy put together our “All Overpaid/No Production” team for 2013. DL guys didn’t count. 6 SP’s, 2 closers, and one position player for each position. No DH’s since they don’t count. That’s tomorrow’s thread. Now, just as Sisyphus did so many times with his boulder, we prepare for another great battle against these titans, The Miami Marlins. I don’t know how we’re gonna do it, but facing 9 straight losses to this dynasty should provide at least a little motivation…….

    get’em, Timmeh

    Logan’s home run.

  4. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    I am liking the line-up shake-ups we have been seeing lately. The sound of Bruce’s big brain grinding and straining to get the team doing its thing is a thing to behold. Not sitting still. Working the strengths (Belt makes the bench stronger) and weaknesses of the players he’s got. Looking for that magic.

    • Bozo said, on June 21, 2013 at 7:55 pm

      Great post, edd.

      • eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:06 pm

        Thanks, co-manager Bozo. I was just trying to get BF to bring back Baseball Babe of the Day.

      • Flavor said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:21 pm

        I read that twice, what did this have to do with the BBoTD?
        I’m a million miles away from Anna and her crew these days.
        I could see them coming back one day. But not now.
        It’s sunny and perfect and baseball and Summer is here. I’ll take all the real shit every day, every goddamn day until it goes away….

      • Bozo said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:42 pm

        Wait, that was a post about the BBOTD? Dude, time for holiday, maybe someplace where you can see a tan line.
        Cheers

      • eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:43 pm

        1. It actually had nothing to do with BBoTD, but my answer to Bozo got your attention. hehe
        2. It is the first day of summer and I saw a woman walking around town today wearing a coat that would work during an antarctic trek. I wish they all could be California girls
        3. I do not miss Anna and the other milfs of limited virtue, but the girl-next-door choices have brightened my day.

      • Flavor said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:54 pm

        “a woman in a coat”…ah, the possibilities…..

      • chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:14 pm

        Yeah…I had one of those woman and a coat possibilities become a reality once…great memory…

    • chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:11 pm

      Absolutely…I agree. Good observation…love the way Bochy works the team…

  5. Sarge said, on June 21, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Any chance we can get Kap in the starting 5?

  6. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    yippee! scooter

  7. twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Good to hear Miller confirm what a few of us have harped on- Scooter shouldn’t be trying to bunt the runner to third early in the game..

    • zumiee said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:24 pm

      I’m pretty sure the majority of us agree with that.

    • twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:31 pm

      I don’t doubt that for a secoind. I’ve just been outspoken about it ever since Fruckie was doing it . Bochy had to order him to stop. I think Flavor was outspoken about it as well.

    • da said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:33 pm

      15 yr smart savvy vet…why does he still not get it?

    • twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:41 pm

      Da: a lot of guys buy into the nonsense of giving up an out early in the game with a runner in scoring position. And a guy hitting .335, double dumb.

  8. twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    Backing up Panda’s HR in Stockton, Crick has struck out 7 in 3 shut out innings, thus far.

    • eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:25 pm

      So therre is a good reason to live in Fresno?

      • zumiee said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:31 pm

        The Fresno Grizzlies are a fine reason to endure July weather of 100+ degrees. 🙂

      • chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:16 pm

        Rehab is with San Jose…and they are in Stockton…Navy, port of call Stockton, CA. It’s not a job…it’s a fucking nightmare! Great to hear Pablo went yard…

      • eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:18 pm

        see what trying to follow California ball from the UK does to a guy? have pity on me.

  9. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    Torres with his (lucky) 13th double

  10. zumiee said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Nipper, log-in to the Flap, ASAP. We’re concerned!

    “(06-21) 19:41 PDT — Firefighters and the U.S. Coast Guard were working Friday evening to locate a van that drove into the bay off the Marina Green in San Francisco, authorities said.

    Witnesses reported seeing the van careening through a nearby parking lot at about 20 miles per hour just after 5:05 p.m., said Assistant Fire Chief Bob Postel. The van jumped a curb near the San Francisco Marina Yacht Harbor and flew into the bay.”

    • sandy said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:35 pm

      Nipper would t be got dead in SF.

    • eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:35 pm

      If anyone can make a van “fly” into the bay at 20mph, it is a flapper.

      🙂

    • Flavor said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:57 pm

      were there any cheap light beer cans strewn about? Was there a DH hitter there? More details!

  11. zumiee said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    Speaking of the Central Valley, you have to feel some sympathy for Affeldt. He had previously agreed to appear today in a Central Valley city to help dedicate a new baseball field funded by the Junior Giants program, and that had to have been tough to make that drive today after the tough loss last night, to show up and be positive and cheerful for the crowd at the park today. And deal with kind of an awkward situation because the crowd knows what happened in the game last night, and they might be worried about what kind of mood he was in. I have no doubt Affeldt probably cracked a few jokes and put everyone at ease. I seriously doubt he was gloomy or surly at the event.

  12. zumiee said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Eeeeh…..you see major leaguers make that mistake….taking off for third on that grounder to short…..

  13. Bozo said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Yes!

  14. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Lincecum seems to be battling to improve, but his control is still putting pitches into the batter’s zone.

    • twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:50 pm

      Well, he’s winning the battle so far tonight..

      • eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:56 pm

        I can be so persnickety at times. *blush*
        He IS doing well and my desire to see him succeed makes me over-analyze.

  15. Flavor said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Unreal and awesome

  16. Flavor said, on June 21, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    I saw Kim/Kanya named their kid “North West”. Reminded me of a girl I knew years ago who’s tits went left and right. Her nickname was “East West” and she was awesome.

    • zumiee said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:03 pm

      There should be a law that celebrities can’t name their own children.

  17. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    Settle down, Timmy. So far so good.

  18. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  19. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand there goes the lead

  20. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    fuck Logan Morrison
    damn, damn, damn

  21. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    Christ. Timmy’s not watching the baserunner.

    • Bozo said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:10 pm

      I think he was watching East West.

  22. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    2013 Marlins or 1927 Yankees. You make the call.

  23. zumiee said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    6 innings, 3 runs. A quality start. 🙂

  24. sportdude said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    Infield single. Augh

  25. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Yikes, second base running error this game.

    • twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:16 pm

      It wasn’t a wasn’t a base running error, he was thrown out.

      • eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:17 pm

        same thing, if you factor in bad luck

      • unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:19 pm

        OK, it was a stupid play.

      • unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:25 pm

        Plus he hurt himself.

      • twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:27 pm

        Of course you’d say that, Chuckles.

      • unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:29 pm

        So, it’s heads up to get thrown out by 10′?

      • twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:30 pm

        “Plus he hurt himself” Yeah, trash him for that, Chuckles.

      • unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:32 pm

        Oh lighen up Mike. If he stops at 2nd, he doesn’t jam his knee and he doesn’t get thrown out. Get it? Of course not.

      • unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:33 pm

        Who’s trahing him?

      • twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:40 pm

        You. Like always. At first, Schulman thought it was a bad play too. Then he admitted he thought triple right away after it bounded away from Stanton…. and it took a perfect throw. Your’re wrong, Chuckles…

      • unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:58 pm

        What’s the oldest adage in the book. Mike? Don”t make the 1st or 3rd out a 3rd base. It was stupid. He was thrown out by 5 feet. Bad play. Plain and simple. Schulman is the determinig factor? Funny.

      • unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:59 pm

        I’ll even explain it to you. See, the runner, by stopping at 2nd, is still in scoring position. The risk to get to 3rd outweighs the benefit.

        You’re welcome.

  26. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    that brings a smile to this face

  27. Bozo said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    Alright Tim.

  28. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Tim has 100 pitches AND A TRIPLE!
    bring him home
    bring him home
    bring him home
    bring him home

  29. zumiee said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Tough LOOGY there.

  30. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    wonderful,

  31. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    Notrhig like wasting opportunities.

  32. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    Solid there, Tim TIm. I’m little shocked.

  33. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Have we hit a home run in the past 2 weeks?

  34. eddacker said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:32 pm

    bruce gave Tim every chance to get a win.

  35. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    Can the pen hold the tie?

  36. chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    I would call it a good (hopefully encouraging) outing for Tim. Now let’s see him stitch together a number of starts like that…

  37. Macdog said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    Unreal. The Giants can’t get this guy out.

  38. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    The pen is officially a problem. This is getting ridiculous.

  39. chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I agree, Chuck. What was once one of the strongest parts of the team is in disarray.

  40. Bozo said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Are you kidding me?

  41. chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Damn…what the hell is with us and the Marlins. The fucking Marlins. Jeez…

  42. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:01 pm

    Christ. Train weck.

  43. twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:01 pm

    Tonight we saw why Bochy says Affeldt is still going to be setting up.

  44. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    Like I said. Train wreck. He doesn’t have a choice. No one is doing very well lately.

    • chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:11 pm

      Rosario looked pretty good for two-plus last night, but he is in the minority…go up and down bullpen…more are floundering than getting it done.

  45. twinfan1 said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Well, they lost three relievers- one to injury, one to losing his effectiveness, and one to the rotation.

  46. chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    Tell the fat lady to sit down…

  47. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    Tease tease tease

  48. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    bleeeh Hurtling to ,500

  49. Macdog said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    Hey, we can still get a split!

  50. chipower9 said, on June 21, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    I seriously thought a 5-2 home stand would be a “success.” Shit, now we have to win out to go 4-3. Get ’em tomorrow! Night Flappers…up early tomorrow and off to another agility trial with the dogs…

  51. Nipper said, on June 22, 2013 at 4:44 am

    BOO HOO! sniff….

    • Nipper said, on June 22, 2013 at 4:45 am

      time to make some coffee……

      • eddacker said, on June 22, 2013 at 5:54 am

        Hope you enjoyed your coffee, mate.
        ready for some Saturday baseball?
