The Cardinals Come to The Phone Park in Hell

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 1, 2014

Well, whether the sun has set or not on the 2014 Giants season, we still have 80 games left to play, starting tonight v St Louis. And if you look at it that way, we either have plenty of time to right this sinking ship or plenty of time to tread water in the sea waiting for the sharks to come devour us–long one of my greatest fears. Is there a worse way to die? Maybe getting chopped up in a wood chipper? Anyway, I digress.

The Cardinals are throwing another pitcher at us that we know nothing about. Marco Gonzales who was their first round pick LAST year. He’s the first player from that round to make it to the big leagues and I don’t know about you, but I am tired of the Cardinals churning out dominant pitcher after dominant pitcher from their farm system.

Let’s light this fuck up.

The latest BBOTD, the one that I think holds so much promise, gets her first test tonight……..

    You bay area guys – is Machi part of the closing committee?????

      According to Bochy the other day, yes. It’s mix and match rather than guys plugged in for a certain inning. But, this could be Bochy auditioning him a little for the closer role. IMO, Casilla should close. He’s done it before, he’s got the stuff for it…

        Ahh . . . I was under the impression Affeldt and Casilla were the “committee.” Not too big on Affeldt closing after his last outing. Anywho, great game by Timmy and a collective outstanding game by the rest of the line up.

    Timmy pitches a shutout, we win!

    Wow, how do you spell relief?
    A 5-0 cruise win. Great job Timmy, good D, and finally some runs off an “unknown starter”…

    Wainright tomorrow night, so the Giants need to gird their loins.
    Or, start to marinate them, anyway…

    It’s a different month. Giants played like a different team from the out of tune June swoon. Has Timmy reverted to his masterful ways even with the primo heater? Nice to see production outta the middle of the order. Also nice that lady luck cast her blessings upon Pablo’s lengthy fly. Also extremely nice to see the probability of a return to first place with LA down 10-3 going into the bottom of the 8th. The likely return of Belt on Friday should also be a boon.

    Nice that July is upon us and that Timmy is now the Stopper.

    The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, sitting en banc (11 judges) has agreed to hear Barry Bonds appeal of his obstruction conviction. They could overturn the 3-judge panel’s upholding of the trial jury’s finding of guilty on that charge…

      Wouldn’t be the first time Barry’s walked…

    DJ LOO warns of an “era of shit” coming upon the Giants! Better win now or never. Timmy to rescue!

    Great game last night. Wanted to jump in the mix with Flap Nation, but I was delayed on the game (DVR’d) and wanted to watch the whole damned thing. And watch the whole damned thing I did…what a beauty of a performance by Timmy.

    And finally the Giants get the breaks going their way.

    In June, Buster’s double down the line is foul.
    In June, Pablo’s blast hit the top of the wall and is caught for an out.

    Then there was the bang-bang play by Crawford…high throw to 1st, but Buster goes up and gets it and appied the tag as the runner goes by.

    Just really nice to see them click in many facets of the game.

    And how about those store bought tits, eh?

    And as others have mentioned, the bumbinos lost and the Giants sit along, on top of the NL West, again.

    Wainright vs. Vogelsong. On the surface it doesn’t appear to be a good match-up for the G-men, but I have a feeling about this game. And I think July could be a very good month.
