A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

The Contest is Over!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 31, 2013

Congrats to Denny for winning the PC and for showing back up at the blog after being gone for a year+ to thank Twin for the contest and the prize.

Congrats to my main man BirdDog for winning 2nd place and snagging the turntable with software that allows you to convert vinyl records to digital.

And congrats to the St Louis Cardinals for sending The Art Dealers back to their usual spot in front of the tv for the World Series. Twenty Five years and counting…..

    A tinge of sadness since we cannot claim to be the reigning World Champions any more. This morose view is nearly erased when I spy those two WS ring photos to my right.

    • snarkk said, on October 31, 2013 at 10:58 am

      Only one way to fix that.
      Win another one…

  2. Bozo said, on October 31, 2013 at 11:07 am

    Hey congrats to DMD for his win. Someone find out his picks for the Breeders Cup, he might be on a roll.
    Cheers, Dennis.

      Fuck you Bozo!

      • Del Mar Dennis (@DelMarDennis) said, on October 31, 2013 at 11:23 am

        It’s been awhile since I said that. It felt good. I hope that was the response you were looking forward to seeing. It was hard not ending that sentence on a preposition. [that was for Pawlie] Maybe Flav will put up a separate thread for the BC, I don’t know his plans. I’ll give out a few names for Saturday. I still have to throw darts, flip coins and read the bumps on my head first.

      • Bozo said, on October 31, 2013 at 1:15 pm

        It still cracks me up.

    Congrats to Denny (and good to hear from DMD again!) and BirdDog for winning the contest. And congrats to the Red Sox, from 69 wins and last place to World Series champs. It gives me a little hope that last year’s Giants season was as much an aberration as the BoSox in 2012.

    So I entered mlb.com’s $10,000 Postseason Bracket Challenge. Pick the winners of every round. The picks had to be made before the playoffs started.

    I aced every round, from the wild-card games all the way to picking the Red Sox to beat the Cardinals. That gave me a maximum score of 105 points. There were a total of 487 entries that had 105.

    Now it’s down to tiebreakers, four in all. The first one was, “How many total runs will be scored in the final World Series game?” I picked 7. The final score was 6-1.

    The second tiebraker was, “How many total hits will be recorded in the final World Series game?” I picked 16. There were 17 (Cards 9, Red Sox 8). Stephen Drew got the final hit, a two-out single to left in the 7th.

    I did not win. There were 23 other listed ahead of me in the final standings. So congrats to nomar711, whoever you are. I’m guessing this person is having a helluva celebration today.

    But oh, to be so close to 10 Grand, since it’s highly unlikely I’ll ever go that deep in such a contest again. Now if only I had made the same picks in Twin’s contest . . .

    • Del Mar Dennis (@DelMarDennis) said, on October 31, 2013 at 11:38 am

      Damn. So close. Great job, though. I thought I did well with 100 pts. My lone incorrect pick was Reds > Pirates. Goddamn Dusty Baker. He and Ron Washington couldn’t manage their way out of a paper bag. All you’d have to do would is write “Playoffs” on the outside.

      • Nipper said, on October 31, 2013 at 1:23 pm

        Stay thirsty Dennis.

  4. twinfan1 said, on October 31, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    Birddog has no vinyl records so he won’t be accepting the turntable. I’m trying to find out what he may like to add to his enjoyment of his personal computer.

    • twinfan1 said, on October 31, 2013 at 12:25 pm

      As to the turntable, I’m donating it to the senior center here.

  5. zumiee said, on October 31, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    Chi mentioned Cousins’ performance last night, a very dominant performance. I hope he keeps his attitude together this season. I’d like to root for him. The talent is spectacular; but the surly attitude he’s had, sometimes, is not. I tend to watch a lot of Kings games because Comcast has decided that’s my local NBA team instead of the Warriors. I’d prefer to watch more of the Warriors, but the Kings have a chance to be entertaining this season. That division should be very interesting; the Clippers still seem vulnerable. For all the flash that Griffin generates in the media, Cousins is a better player. Maybe that bugs Cousins a bit; feeling like he’s playing in a backwater or something. I hope not. There’s a lot of positives happening with the Kings, overall, and he’s part of the core of making something special happen someday for that team. Unless he leaves as a free agent someday, I guess.

  6. unca_chuck said, on October 31, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    What were the final standings, BTW? Since I was theoretically close, maybe 3rd pace would get the turntable?

    • twinfan1 said, on October 31, 2013 at 8:54 pm

      “Theoretically close”? Is that like “a little bit pregnant”?

  7. unca_chuck said, on October 31, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    I had Boston in 6, 33 runs scored. I think I have 9 points now.

  8. unca_chuck said, on October 31, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Yeah, Zume, I was in the same boat where I used to live. Cousins caught tons of unwarranted shot in Sacto, but he is a bit of an enigma. If he settles his shot down, he’ll be a dominant force for quite a while. They have the makings of a solid team.

    However, it was AWESOMEW to see the Dubs flatten the flakers last night.

    Igludoala (sp?) is the real deal. Tough defender, great court presence. Great passer. Bogut looked very spry in blocking shots and passing. Don’t think he got very many points, but he was a big force out there. Lee even looked good. Lots of unselfishness out there.

  9. paulinasia said, on October 31, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    I know there aren’t many Red Sox fans here, but that city deserved it this year, good for them. And I have been trying to capture a screen shot (unsuccessfully so far) from mlb video.. after Victorino’s bases-clearing hit in the 3rd inning, the camera from behind the 3rd base dugout shows him standing on 3rd base, arms in the air, looking up at the sky, and in the background, all of the fans in the right field/1st base stands, standing and roaring in similarly jubilant fashion… Sox fan or no, as a baseball fan, it was hard not to feel the goosebumps of that pure baseball moment in the Fall classic. And, to envision a similar scene a year from now at China Basin….

    • Chipower9 said, on November 1, 2013 at 8:53 am

      Welll said…I was pulling for Boston for the same reasons.

      POTD….

  10. Alleykat said, on October 31, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Hey Happy Halloween you knuckle heads.
    Still giving out candy to the good neighbor kids.Apples with razor blades or stricknine to the punk ass older kids in junior high.
    Hey Denny Congrats and now go fuck yourself! (grin)
    And Chucky, how many vinyls do you own and still spin? I have over 350 , but my marantz turntable is in need of a tune- up right now Damm it.

  11. zumiee said, on October 31, 2013 at 9:28 pm

    Tough deal for the Warriors. Awesome performance at home last night, then have to travel and play the next night. Life in the NBA.

  12. unca_chuck said, on October 31, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Yeah, to keep it straight. Lakers stomped the Clippers, the Warriors stomped the Lakers, and the Clippers are stomping the Warriors. They play Saturday vs Sacto.

  13. unca_chuck said, on October 31, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    AK, I have one box of albums left. I guess about 120. The plastic bin survived the great garage flood of 1988. The cardboard ones didn’t.

  14. willedav said, on November 1, 2013 at 8:31 am

    Ugh, vinyl…summer of ’78 I lost a few hundred LPs in an apt. fire. I’ve replaced maybe 75 or so; I tend to like obscure artists and was more into blues in those days, so stuff on labels like Arhoolie or Delmark I just never bothered with looking for. At the time I was unemployed so there were bigger issues than finding a Robt. Nighthawk or Sonny terry/brownie McGhee record I liked. Still do have a Yamaha turntable, but rarely if ever use it.
    There are some jazz LPs though I’d like to check out getting redone with an Ion machine. A lot of stuff gets reissued, often by Japanese, but seldom in its original state. Example: recorded late 80s I have an LP by Frank Wess and Johnny Coles that was reissued this year on CD by the label. However, instead of just the original half dozen tracks (all of which are excellent), they added second takes and sometimes third takes of a lot of songs plus an additional live recording by two main artists with different rhythm section recorded 2 yrs later. Result of course is that the price went up, mostly for stuff I don’t care for. I’ve run into same problem with other artists–often two older LPs are combined in some format on a CD reissue but some cuts always left out.

    • Nipper said, on November 1, 2013 at 9:16 am

      Life is a bitch. The DH …..your thoughts?

  15. SanDawg said, on November 1, 2013 at 9:29 am

    Denny is Del Mar Dennis? Glad to hear that! Congrats DMD! Get back in here man—I miss your passion for SFG.

    I’d also like to see final standings posted in the contest. I was on my own personal Quest to Avoid the Cellar and I believe I hit the exacta in the last couple of series by picking the winner and the number of games. Kind of curious where I ended up.

    Always glad to see the Sactown Kings get some run here on the Flap. I know the Warriors are the team to beat, but the Kings are my team. We’ll see if Cousins is a changed man. I wish I could see them more often on TV down here. I like Greivous Vasquez and I hope the Fresh Prince (Mbah a Moute) can get healthy as I think he could be a nice fit.

    My vinyl is long gone. My Windstar still has a tape deck in it and I still occasionally pop in some old cassettes I recorded from vinyl back in the day. I have one that is my hand picked greatest hits of Van Halen on one side and Judas Priest on the other. Recorded some time in the 80’s in my friends room while hitting the pipe.
    Still sounds outstanding.

  16. twinfan1 said, on November 1, 2013 at 9:33 am

    I got what I wanted for Halloween- no kids! That means- lotsa candy- for us…some years the little bastards come out in droves, midget monsters with their monster mommies in the car to make sure they’re not swept up and sold to Republicans..
    I bought really good stuff this year- peanut butter cups, snickers, etc. I have to check with my doctor. Is 14 Nestle Crunch Bars too many? Before 8 A.M. ?

    • Chipower9 said, on November 1, 2013 at 10:39 am

      That is the beauty of where I live. We are on a cul-de-sac (court) in an off-the-beaten-path area of Camino. No kids…I don’t miss it at all.

      RE: Haloween candy consumption – If they are the bite-sized bars, I don’t believe this (14 bars before 8 A.M.) is an issue.

      I too (along with San Diggity) would like to see the final point count on the contest. I cannot recall how it worked…one point for the right team, and then another for the right number of games to win the series? Depending on that, I either ended up with 8 or 9. Regardless, it was a fun contest…and thanks again to Michael for ponying up the prizes.

  17. salty said, on November 1, 2013 at 10:56 am

    Think totals went
    DelMar – 11
    Bird – 10
    3, Rooster 9 (won tie break)
    4, Chuck/Salty 9
    5, Chi 9
    6, Macdog 7 (won tie break)
    7, Blade Kevin 7
    8, Kat 6
    9, San Dog 5
    10, ????

  18. salty said, on November 1, 2013 at 11:08 am

    It was fun, but relieved its over. That was hell pulling for the bad guys.
    ;). Its like betting against the Giants. I would be too conflicted watching.

  19. twinfan1 said, on November 1, 2013 at 11:16 am

    1. Dennis-11
    2. Birddog-10
    3. Chuck- 9 ( won tie breaker)
    4. Chi-9
    5. Rooster- 9
    6. Salty-9
    7. Blade-7
    8. Macdog-7
    9. Kat-6
    10. Sandawg- 5
    11. Kevin-5
    12. Wilcojoe-4
    13. Pawlie- 3

    Failed to finish- boxhead, sportsdude,flavor, wes,manny,winder, snarkk.
    A word about tie breakers- the contestants who picked the series winner get precedent over those who picked the Cards. For example- Chuck gets third place in a tie breaker over chi. The other contestants with 9 (Salty and Rooster) picked the Cards. Rooster gets 5th in the tie breaker with Salty.
    As I’ve mentioned, Birddog passed on the turntable. I was going to donate it to the Old Fucker’s Center but I’d have to convert their vinyl for the coots. So the third place winner gets it- Unca_Chuck. BTW- I’m not 66, I’ve decided I’m 49Q…I don’t hang with seniors and “their kind”…

  20. Rooster said, on November 1, 2013 at 11:18 am

    Great job, Del, congrats. Also thanks a lot twin for putting the cool prizes up for the contest – was fun and turned out to be the only thing that kept me mildly interested in the WS. You nutcake G’s fans have a great offseason – I’ll try to stop in every now and then to pop off.

    • twinfan1 said, on November 1, 2013 at 11:32 am

      I’ve Emailed Birddog, hoping there’s something else he would like for his PC. I hope everybody enjoyed the contest- I enjoyed hosting it and want to thank Craig for letting me take over his site for a spell.

  21. SanDawg said, on November 1, 2013 at 11:20 am

    For some odd reason, I like keeping track of how many trick or treaters I get at my house—and we get quite a few of them. I use one of those pitch count clickers to keep track. Last night we had 104 of the little rascals—-which is actually lower than it has been in past years. It was also the first time in 22 years that none of my own kids went out trick or treating. It made for an easy evening, but I was a little bummed by another sign that time is moving along and the kids are getting older.

    • blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2013 at 2:22 pm

      I live in a new condo complex, so the card access security prevents the curtain climbers from entering our place. No idea what would happen if a kid bypassed security . . . Umm, I would imagine that the guard tower lights would illuminate and they would be shot on sight. Just a guess of course . . . 😉

  22. Rooster said, on November 1, 2013 at 11:29 am

    I had those little ‘uns coming to my door before dark all the way thru to past 9 pm – I had to steal candy from my two girls to give to the kids at the door at the end – my son didn’t go trick or treating – he said he’s waaaay to old for it – he’s 12.

  23. snarkk said, on November 1, 2013 at 11:43 am

    We had a down Halloween at the snarkkhouse, I’d say we had 50-60 TOTers at the door last night, usually its in the 80s range. I’ve got kids that still go out, so I like having kids come to the door. Didn’t Ted Cruz and the Teapottiers threaten to ban Halloween? I think some must have taken it to heart…

  24. Chipower9 said, on November 1, 2013 at 11:52 am

    San Diggity – in response to your 11:20 – I used to look at it that way (kids moving along…not trick-or-treating any more, etc.) as an indication that life was moving on (and that my ass was getting old). I finally said screw that…I am just going to enjoy the transitions.

    One of those that I really enjoyed was when my son was Active Duty in the Air Force…stationed at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tuscon. I went down to spend Christmas with him, and while there, we drove up to Phoenix to catch a Suns game. He had just turned 21 in early December, so it was cool that I could go out and have a couple of cold ones with my boy. Now he (and his other half) have blessed me with a grand daughter. I just don’t trip on the transitions any more, and just go with the flow….it’ll all be good, brother.

  25. Chipower9 said, on November 1, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    Just flipped-over the calendar to November (Giants Opening Day calendar)…player of the month…Vogey. Reminded me of the questions/holes that must be addressed in the off-season.

    On the bright side – only 104 days until pitchers and catchers report. Scottsdale, baby!

    Also, I just received a copy of “The Baseball Instagrams of Brad Mangin – Instant Baseball” (gift for my daughter’s boyfriend who is the pitching coach for Menlo College). If you do not know him, Brad is a Bay Area freelance photographer who shoots predominantly baseball. Anyway, the book is made up almost entirely of shots he took not with one of his big fancy Canon digital SLRs, but with his iPhone. It is a fun little book that is filled with great shots of the game about which we are all so passionate. I highly encourage you to check it out.

  26. Birddog said, on November 1, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    Twin,

    Thanks for running the contest and for your generous prizes. To be honest I try to limit my “enjoyment” on my PC, I’m on it for work all day as it is.So just the knowledge that I took second and the prize being donated to the Senior Center is enough for me. Besides as Blade well knows I just play these contests for the fun of it anyway.

    See you guys around the Hot Stove.

    • blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2013 at 2:18 pm

      Hey Chris, glad to see you won a prize from Twin. I won a PC during the 2010 WS that Twin put on and that sucker is still running great. I hope you and your’s are well in the Pacific Northwest! 🙂

      Denny, congrats on winning and good to see you back posting here! By the by, are you participating in Fan Duel? Just getting my feet wet the last week, but I am in 3 NBA tournaments for this evening’s slate of games.

  27. Del Mar Dennis (@DelMarDennis) said, on November 1, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    I had 11 pts. to win? I got Alex Smith’d again. 🙂

  28. Del Mar Dennis (@DelMarDennis) said, on November 1, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    Did Flav go to the Breeders’ Cup? He hasn’t posted much about the ponies. I know there *might* be a few others her who play the races. I’ll give out my plays. I promise not to fill up the blog with horsey talk. But if Loo were here, you guys would be screwed. [insert Secretariat’s heart that was twice the size].

  29. Del Mar Dennis (@DelMarDennis) said, on November 1, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    But I do wish to share a little personal story. I already kind of started it with TF via e-mail…my Applehead Siamese cat, Frank, loves to sleep underneath my bed comforter. I have to wash it today, so Frank went to my bed and looked at the mattress and tried to snuggle his head up but there was no blanked. This happens every time when I wash. He’s waiting patiently now as it drying. It’s 2hrs. passed his usual bedtime. He’s gonna get pissed soon. 🙂

    • Chipower9 said, on November 1, 2013 at 3:09 pm

      Well, hopefully in getting pissed, he does not piss on your bed (or defecate in your shoes…ala Fat Freddy’s cat).

      And definitely, welcome back.

  30. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    Yeah, I haven’t even looked through the pile of records in about 20 years. Although the one on top was a Japanese Jimi Hendrix import I don’t remember buying. Rods Used Records sticker on it.

  31. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    Speaking of PEDs, Platschke is off his meds.

    http://discussions.latimes.com/20/lanews/la-sp-plaschke-ortiz-20131101/10

    Based on nothing but my infinitesimal sample size of 6 games, I think . . .

    • blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2013 at 3:11 pm

      Usually, Platschke makes sense. Here he didn’t. Sheesh, the Red Sox barely finished their champagne and he is (almost) accusing Ortiz of violating the PED MLB ban. I have no problem with his recommendation that all the players be checked after the games are played (actually, my recommendation is better – check them before they start the playoff games. ALL OF THEM), but bringing this up now is beyond the pale. I wonder if he would have wrote that column if the Bums had won it all?

      • snarkk said, on November 1, 2013 at 4:27 pm

        He’s not the only one. I heard this on ESPN today. It does start some headscratching, that he hit 400+ points above the average of the rest of both squads, but he was crap in the ALCS, so what does being hot in one series mean? Though now 37 or so, he’s been hitting better in recent years, than before, where some thought he was done in 2009. Being on a “doping list” back in the early 2000s helps fuel it. My usual position is we don’t know and won’t know for sure, but like everybody else in MLB, it can’t be ruled out Here’s an Ortiz-sympathetic article…

  32. Del Mar Dennis (@DelMarDennis) said, on November 1, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    How’s this for a little sports tie-in? Avery Johnson, with his great accent, just presented the trophy to the winning connections of Outstrip (GB) by Exceed And Excel (AUS) out Asi Siempre. The winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf.

    And, yes, thankfully I had Outstrip on my PK 4 ticket. 1 down 3 to go. 😛

  33. Del Mar Dennis (@DelMarDennis) said, on November 1, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    Here’s a better tie-in, Marshall Faulk owns Brujo de Olleros (BRZ) coming up in the next.
    He’s on my ticket. Go Marshall!

    Rod’s Records,nice call Chuck.Use to buy some killer Records from that shop.
    When he first opened it was an Army Surplus store with anything military including boots.Then later on he switched to records, kinda bummed he cleared out all his cool military stuff.

  36. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Yeah, that was a while ago that he sold the army stuff. Back in the day there were a ton if used record stores. Along with the magic theatre in San Mateo. And Sirius the dog . . .

  37. twinfan1 said, on November 1, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    Birddog- Chuck ended up getting the turntable- Unca Chuck, Senior Center- same thing 😉
    Actually I realized that the rules that I set up required that it go to the next in line by score so Chuck was that guy. He’s agreed that for 2 years, he must reply to my comments with- “Thanks for pointing that out to me, Mr. Scott. You’re the best!!”

    • Nipper said, on November 1, 2013 at 5:26 pm

      Chuck will bust a gut if can’t BLEEP a little.

    I think we’re all in agreement here. All bullshit aside, TF is one standup guy.
    We all appreciate that side of you.

    Thank you.

      “that side” of me? It’s the only side.

      Your bricks are on the way, Dennis.

  41. Del Mar Dennis (@DelMarDennis) said, on November 1, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    In regards to the contest, I didn’t know it was that close. I wasn’t exactly paying attention to the scoreboard and I sure in the hell wasn’t following the Flap on the particulars re: scoring pts. I knew I was doing well with my predictions, but it wasn’t until TF sent me an e-mail telling me that I had actually won.

    Well, I was pleasantly surprised and put in a little quandary at the same time. I had mixed emotions. I was thrilled that I had won, but I felt a little funny because I hadn’t been a participant on the Flap for quite some time.

    That’s all in the past. Thanks again to TF for his continued generosity, and thanks to Flav for all he does. But I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank all of you Flappers who have welcomed me back to the Flap. That means a lot to me. Thank you. What else can I say? Oh…

  42. blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    For whatever reason, snarkk mentioning stylus jogged my memory about how much of an audiophile I was back in the 1970s. Him mentioning “stylus” reminded me of the Shibata stylus I bought to replace the stylus that came with my Pioneer turntable. What else? I had JBL 100 speakers; Teac cassete deck (forgot the model number, but it was top of the line at the time); Soundcraftsman Equalizer – again, top of the line back then, Harmon Kardon pre-amplifier that generated 200 watts per channel, and a Pioneer receiver.

    Shit, back then I could talk signal to noise ratio with the best of them. 😉

      I used to build quite a few Digital Audio Workstations, I had one really great customer who bought a few from me. So one day I was browsing a forum for audiophiles and my customer was on it- telling the other users about a really good system builder- an old fart, really cheap, and few more “compliments”, I was starting to get non-plussed- then he gave my Email address… I still talk to the guy every once in a while…now I’m “old fart”- even his wife calls me that.

        I rarely listen to music anymore, unless the sound is turned waaaaaaaaaaaay, waaaaaaaaaaay down. High frequency hearing loss cured me of wanting to plant my ass near ZZ Top’s speaker system, as I did when they played at Winterland. Of course, being stoned and drunk influenced quite a few of my decisions back then. 😉

        What’s the happiest you’ve ever been, Steve? Well, whatever it was you’ll forget all about it when you open your package.

    Too frickin’ funny Twin . . . Our secured mail boxes are located in the lobby of our building, so frequently, I may only check my mail once a week, since they are locked as I mentioned and moreover, because I pay all my bills online (only way I was able to do the RTW trip without worrying about bill collectors). Ha. Anywho, your message above reminded me that my prize might be in the mail . . . Fast forward a few minutes ago, Ta Da! Faberware Tuna Squeeze . . .

    Yes, this is life changing. 😉

      You can create a bevy of exciting new tuna recipes and save them to your new flash drive ! Just imagine your neighbor’s delight when you show up at the next neighborhood potluck with your “Tuna Medley alla Blade3”.

      I can tell you this from personal experience-you’re going to hear a lot of ” What’s your secret, Mr. Blade3 ? I can never get enough liquid out the tuna, this “Thai Tuna Bruschetta” is not soggy at all !”
      You? A knowing nod, a sly smile…

        Well, I eat a lot of tuna, so the recipe you sent me via email will come in handy. By the by, thank you much for the tuna squeezer and flash drive – both will come in handy. 🙂
