A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Dodgers Suck

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 19, 2013

i realized this afternoon that we didn’t really spent the proper amount of time celebrating The Art Dealer’s demise in yet another season with someone else winning the World Series. 

I never would admit it, but all that “no WS wins in SF” shit did bother me as a fan. After we won 2010 I could give less than a turd about that angle. And after 2012….what’s less than a turd? 

I said it at the time, I could care less about franchise series wins. I don’t think i’d really even care about SF series wins had we won any before I was born. I’m old enough now not to count other fans, older fans, flags that fly. By now I’m far more concerned with the ones I earned as a fan….

So that’s why I LQTM at all the a Dodger fans who were born post ’85 or so. Maybe even a year or two earlier. Ya gotta be old enough to remember watching it. Think about it, most Dodger fans who are 30 or so have no concept of what it feels like to be a fan of a World Series champion. And I freaking love that….

    glad to see the bums out, now i’d like the tigers to pull out the sox series. it would turn the contest upside down and i want to see torii hunter in a world series.

      Hunter is one of the good guys. He’s also known for making veiled references to his big dick in live interviews which, on the surface, sounds idiotic. But I heard one of those interviews on Knbr about 6 months ago and it was pure, unadulterated gold….

        i hadn’t heard of the big dick thing. uh, i guess i’m glad to hear that 😉
        i’ve just liked the guy ever he since he came up. he didn’t hit much his first couple years, he was known mostly for his incredible defense. and of course, that catch and interplay with bonds in the all-star game is one of the great asg game highlights…

    Hunter’s a good player, but he made an awful throw to homeplate in the game tonight. The ball bounced near firstbase. Maybe he’s injured from that fall over the fence.

    There was a lot to not like about the Dodgers this season, which makes their elimination all the sweeter. And Dodger fans that think the Dodgers will cruise to the NL West title again next year could be in for a surprise. As much as anything, the rest of the division didn’t compete well this season for the division title. The Dodgers may not have it so easy next season.

    I’m not worried about them at all. I’m worried about our team and hoping we improve enough to win 90 games. We need a stud outfielder and a front line pitcher (doesn’t have to be an ace, but that would be nice (Price)). And we need one of those Gomes-guys on the bench. Our bench was a joke this year……

    That Boegarts cat is about 100 times cooler than Puig. Arrogant without looking like a fool.

    hunter is one of the great defensive outfielders of our time and a good hitter . wonder how things would have gone if we’d been able to sign him instead of rowand. as i recall, he pretty much committed to the angels early.

    The Tiger bullpen really sucks.

  8. James said, on October 19, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    If Kershaw, Greinke, and Ryu are healthy, we need more than one better than average starter to compete with the Dodgers. The stud outfielder won’t mean jackshit if the pitching isn’t upgraded significantly. The Dodgers offense was barely more productive than the Giants’ this year. If Ramirez and Kemp are healthy next year, we’ll need the stud OFer and 2 frontline starters to overtake them . . . on paper, of course.

    • zumiee said, on October 19, 2013 at 8:38 pm

      It may be the harsh reality that next year is a quasi-rebuilding year for the Giants in regards to pitching. Doing what they can to compete next season, while waiting for pitchers in the farm system to develop.

      • James said, on October 19, 2013 at 8:43 pm

        You’re probably right, Zumie. 2 years in a row of not competing will be trial, though . . . .

      • zumiee said, on October 19, 2013 at 8:51 pm

        Yeah, after all the success the last few years, it’s hard to think of going into “patience” mode. Plus, watching the Red Sox go from last place back to the World Series…..

    So Scherzer’s going to win the CY, and he can’t take a game past the 7th inning. What a joke.

  10. zumiee said, on October 19, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    Here’s my question- if Scherzer was pitching a perfect game or no-hitter, would he come out? Sheesh, what’s more important than these playoff games?

  11. James said, on October 19, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Sherzer with 110 pitches in 6.1 innings. He had missed giving up 2 HRs by the combined purported length of Tori Hunter’s dick. There was nothing wrong with Leyland’s removing him.

    • James said, on October 19, 2013 at 8:55 pm

      More of a response to McCarver’s “measured” rant.

      • zumiee said, on October 19, 2013 at 8:57 pm

        I was reacting more to Scherzer’s first game, when he asked to come out after the 7th inning. I hadn’t heard that until Buck mentioned it.

      • twinfan1 said, on October 19, 2013 at 9:16 pm

        aren’t too many 7 inning pitchers anymore. scherzer actually pitched more ip per start than verlander in the regular season. we all think of madbum as an innings eater but even he averaged less than 6.5 ip per start. of the top 10 american league starters by era, only one (sale) averaged 7 innings per start. sign of the times.

    Fox will be pleased with a Red Sox/Cards World Series. Should get the Series up to the ratings of a pre-season NFL game. 🙂 🙂

    The Curse of Reagan for the Tigers, too. And the Orioles. And the Royals. And the Mets.

    Well, I am usually a league loyalist, mainly because I cannot stand the brand of baseball they play in the junior circuit. But this year I am going to the dark side. Boston Strong!

    Awesome thread, Craig. You nailed it…the Dodgers DO SUCK!
