Stuck. Again.

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 16, 2014

Good day for a Peavy start. He’s one of the only pitchers I trust these days.

The Giants have hit another patch of quicksand. When I was a young lad and watching Gilligan’s Island and Batman regularly, I would worry a lot about quicksand. It seemed to always be quite the problem on those shows. I worried about how it would impact my life as I got older. Turns out quicksand wasn’t something I needed to worry much about as an adult.

But it’s a big deal in the Giants season. They’re stuck in it right now. And the season hangs in the balance.

    They have certainly hit a patch, but I do not think the season hangs in the balance. Winning the West? Yes. I am so very close to waving the white flag in regards to winning the division.

    At this point the important thing is to get a ticket to the dance. And if that’s the wild card, so be it. We all know what a funny game this is, and regardless of how a team makes the post season, anything can happen.

    There is a Giant commercial now (I saw it for the first time last night on CSNBA) that talks how the team made the playoffs on the last day of the season in 2010, and also talks about the multiple (seven?) elimination games they faced in 2012. With that in mind, it isn’t over by any stretch of the imagination.

    One day and one game at a time. Just win.

    Might be a little soon, but as long as he’s activated I’d like to see Belt get a start in AZ where live part of the yard is RF power alley. He might not help offense much yet, but just for his own peace of mind to gain something out of this season and hopefully finish well. His D is always a plus and some game action might help him get rolling for post season.

    Kingman talk yesterday reminded me of his younger days, when he was thin, could run the bases and steal bags and SF tried him at 3b. Cannon arm, just not very accurate.

    NL is just so unbalanced, I don’t get blowing things up. Braves are now at .500. First place Cards have 1 more win than SF and only other teams in entire league with better record are LA and WAS. Giants aren’t that far off despite all the shit they have had to endure this year, and rest of division has long way to go catch them and LA in near future.
    Shore up pitching, add some depth to position players…and how bout that Arias?

    HAHA, the quicksand used to haunt my dreams. Then I would think of Mary Ann and Ginger and all was right with the world.

      Do pussys create jizz? Never heard it referred to as such.

  6. gianthead said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:09 am

    After Saturday, I think Peavy has to be the Game 1 starter after the Bum wins the wild card…

  7. salty said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:23 am

    After Bum it’s dicey.

    What they obviously lack is the 2012 Cain.

    • salty said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:44 am

      Peavy has had a nice stretch. Maybe it lasts. And maybe Hudson finds his April magic and Voggy his best. Zito did it, so anything is possible.

  8. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:23 am

    Now, IMO you don’t even think about the division, nor about the WC. Just think about the game at hand tonight or today. Regardless of who’s hurt, who’s starting. Get the dang W. Start thinking too much ahead, and you’ll find you’re behind…

    • chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:02 am

      Agree snarkk. That is why I said “One day and one game at a time, and that the important thing is getting a ticket to the dance. At that point, anything can happen.

  9. Macdog said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:40 am

    The Dynamic Duo always found a way out of their predicaments, and so will the Giants escape from this untimely losing streak. We’re still in good shape for the wild card, and as Flav said, we’ve got one of about only 3 starters we can trust going tonight, so I’ll be tuning in — same Bat time, same Bat channel. In the meantime . . .

  10. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:45 am

    The obvious solution here is a throw back BBOTD.

  11. DJLoo said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:49 am

    Vogs was actually just one borderline umpire’s call (right before the GS) from pitching a darn good game.
    At least on paper.

    • snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:02 am

      He had no stuff from virtually the get go. Got fortunate in the first on that line out double play. He probably would have gotten into trouble the next inning. Matter of time, only question was would Bochy have gotten the hook before he’d have given up 4 some other way…

      • salty said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:14 am

        And it’s Az with one of the worst O’s in baseball.

  12. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:50 am

    Pagan. Giants 57-38 with him and 25-30 without him.
    Offseason, they have to get his back fixed or figured out. Can’t have this guy in/out of the LU a month at a time over the next two contract years…

    • James said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:21 am

      Pagan didn’t play particularly well in August and September. His presence wasn’t vital to that surge.

      • snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:27 am

        So, would you rather have Perez playing CF?

      • James said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:50 am

        Nope, and I hope is back is fixed for next year, too — it’s just that there’s nothing magical about his presence.

      • chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 11:27 am

        We will forever disagree on this one. I believe that El Cabollo Loco contributes in ways that do not show up in the stats. Call it cheerleader, good luck charm…whatever ya want, but the guy has an effect on the team, and sometimes it is just not measurable (as a stat is).

  13. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:51 am

    John Aston??? I thought the Riddler was Frank Gorshin.

    • snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:10 am

      Dunno where that’s coming from Chuck. But, yeah. Gorshin was the Riddler. At least that I remember. I checked Wiki, it says Astin played Riddler after Gorshin. I have no memory of that at all. What was he in, one show? Must have been in between day shoots of the Addams Family. Anyway, Caesar Romero was the Joker. Burgess Meredith was a great Penguin. Wah, wah, wah. Julie Newmar = Catwoman.

      Biff, Bam, Boom!…

    • Macdog said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:43 am

      Wiki says John Astin filled in because Frank Gorshin was “unavailable.” Since the Batman show wasn’t a regular weekly gig, I’m guessing Gorshin probably had committed to something else. The same thing must’ve happened with Julie Newmar when Eartha Kitt filled in as Catwoman in the final season.

      BTW, that’s none other than Jim Lefebvre as one of the Riddler’s henchmen who’s sending the Caped Crusaders to their doom.

      • snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 11:16 am

        Wiki says Gorshin smoked up to 5 packs of cigs a day, and that Adam West claimed that “Frank could reduce a cigarette to ash with one draw”.
        Died at age 72 of lung diseases. Ya think?…

      • wswins said, on September 16, 2014 at 12:56 pm

        same bat time, same bat channel…was definitely a weekly show.

      • wswins said, on September 16, 2014 at 3:00 pm

        My bad Mac…realize you meant Gorshin wasn’t a weekly reg..

  14. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:06 am

    Voggy is 1-5 with a 5.68 ERA in 12 starts against NL West clubs.
    He’s thrown 9 walks in last 2 outings. This guy has no stuff, all the look of being out of gas; so he’s nibbling nibbling nibbling, then comes in with hit me pitches resulting in crooked number runs against. As I said last night, they should seriously consider skipping his next start, try Heston instead. Hell, the Giants never can hit starters the oppo just brought up that they’ve never seen, why not try it in reverse? If it POs Voggy, BFD. He’s gone next season anyway…

  15. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:26 am

    Chi’s the energizer optimist, I’m not. But, I agree with his take on “anything can happen”, once you get in the post season. 2012 sealed the deal on that, were there any doubt. So, at minimum, get into the WC game, at ATT, and position it if you can so MadBum is on the mound. After that, you just play one at a time. I doubt Voggy, and certainly not Timmeh will even be on the playoff roster. Somebody gets a bad hammy or wing to allow Strickland into the playoff Pen…

    • chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 11:29 am

      I don’t see it as being an optimist as much as being a realist. The team has some solid pitching (when they are on). And they can score runs, when they are on. So, the way I see it, this team has the potential to make some noise. Seriously not being a Polly here…I just think they have the pieces to make some noise. Time will tell.

  16. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:32 am

    I’m sure a mystery pull or tweak will rear its head soon.

  17. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:50 am

    An interesting tidbit, I think. Of the guys on the 40 man, who is NOT in the dugout and available to play these days with the big club? (as far as I know, anyway)
    Cain, Kendry Flores, Hector, Adrianza, Scutaro, Villalona, Carbonell. I don’t know about Jarret Parker. Essentially every pitcher (20 total) on the 40 man is up and available except Cain and Flores.
    Make corrections if I’m off somewhere…

    *Buffalo Bills announce that O.J. will be allowed to play Sunday

    *As per BProspectus we have a 5.8% chance to win division, 92.4% chance to get a WC, and a 100% chance that the sun will rise even if we miss both

    *Epic Fail- Degrom fans first 8 hitters! Doesn’t get pitcher…

    *Gutierrez – maybe he’d be better if he took his time out there

    *Postion Player WAR 2 and above- Posey 5.4, Pence 5.2, Pablo 3.5, Pagan 2.0, Blanco 2.0

    *Starting Pitcher WAR- MadBum 3.8, Hudson 1.7, Petit 1.6, Peavy 1.2, Vogey 0.7, Timmy minus 0.2

        Man, if it isn’t “go time” starting tonight, we can start sweating home field for the WC.

    • snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 1:38 pm

      I like the Gutierrez one. Maybe if he waits longer between pitches, the ump will just send the batter to first…

    Back in May there was talk that the Sacramento AAA franchise was potentially looking to change their affiliation from the A’s to the Giants. It looks more and more like that is going to happen. I love it, as living an hour from Sacramento (and working 30 minutes from the ballpark), it will allow me to see more Giants AAA games. Here is one of many articles out there today.

    There used to be a Youtube video (maybe still is) comparing The RIddler’s laugh to the Joker’s laugh. Similar, but with slight differences. I love the Riddler’s laugh and can do a decent impression of it myself…..often used to sarcastic effect with my kids—which they hate.
    Me: Put away your phone and start your homework
    Kid: I don’t have any homework.
    Me: Put away your phone before I snap it like a graham cracker (one of my favorite lines)

      In 2013, when I was searching for a smart phone, I did a lot of research and read all the reviews for HTC1, Samsung Galaxy, Iphone, etc. For the reason you cited (and much more), I got the Moto X. Best phone by far in my opinion. It doesn’t do anything “the best” but it does everything well and as you said, it is reasonably small. Those large phones look like a book is attached to their ear.

  22. zumiee said, on September 16, 2014 at 1:01 pm

    My local paper had a headline in the sports section that was something like: “Harbaugh Furious About Profanity Call,” about the call on Kap.
    That’s just so Harbaugh, isn’t it? If anything was ever a deck chair on the Titanic, it was that call.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 1:29 pm

      The majo0r stupidity to it is that it cost the 49ers 3 fucking yards.

      The penalty on Boldin for holding was bullshit, as were a couple hundred illegal use of hands calls.

      • snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 2:02 pm

        Maybe this doesn’t translate, but dig this.

        Apparently 26 penalties were called in the Niners – Bears game. I don’t know how many plays were run, but say 75 each team = 150 plays, probably not far off. So the penalty to play ratio = around 17%.
        Let’s say tonight in Arizona, the Giants and Snakes each throw 125 pitches during the game. That’s 250 “plays” in baseball. If the managers called for a replay review 17% of the time, that would mean play would be stopped in tonight’s game after each of 43 pitches. Can you imagine a baseball game, with guys already ducking out of the batters box and pitchers rubbing up the ball, further stopped by the umps 43X in one game for some purpose — about 30 seconds or more each stoppage? There would be an outcry, I say, to stop the umps from ruining the flow of the game.

        The NFL is getting darn near unwatchable…

  23. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 1:33 pm

    Don’t get me wrong on Pagan and his back. I like the guy and what he does for the team. If you’ve got disc issues, that’s a tough deal. But, this back thing hopefully can be resolved, fixed in the offseason. I hope they don’t dick around with it like Cain’s elbow and then 2015 is a replay of this season with Pagan in and out and in again with epidurals and DL stints…

  26. DJLoo said, on September 16, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    I’ve never been to ATT, but I don’t think they sell anywhere near the amount of Panda hats that people might think they do. Pablo’s popular, but I doubt that marketing or souvenir sales will have anything to so with the decision about what they offer him to stay. And no matter what it is, one of the usual suspects will probably blow their offer away. We’re probably seeing the end of his Giant career.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 2:44 pm

      Ditto. Merch sales are one thing, but I don’t think the braintrust’s decision to sign him to a mondo 5 year/$110 mill deal rides on panda hat sales.

  27. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    • DJLoo said, on September 16, 2014 at 2:53 pm

      If Belt proves he’s healthy, he’s their best trade chip in the event Posey moves to first and they need a new 3B and/or LF…

      • unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 2:55 pm

        Well, I’m kidding about the hats, but if Posey’s at 1st, Belt’s Orlando Cepeda.

      • James said, on September 16, 2014 at 3:20 pm

        He might have competition from Susac as a trade chip, especially if the other team’s needs are taken into account.

  28. zumiee said, on September 16, 2014 at 3:23 pm

    Sandoval to the Yankees, 5 years/$90 million sounds about right. He could hit 30+ HRs with the short rightfield, and getting to DH occasionally. The Yankees do have A-Rod theoretically coming back, so I don’t know how that complicates things, though.

    Funny video clips, James and Mac.
    That Batman show was the KING of deus ex machina, wasn’t it, with Batman time and time again pulling whatever he needed to save them, from his utility belt. Batman’s utility belt was the essence of deus ex machina, which is basically cheating in storytelling. 🙂

    Deus ex machina is defined as:
    “1.In Greek and Roman drama, a god lowered by stage machinery to resolve a plot or extricate the protagonist from a difficult situation.

    2.An unexpected, artificial, or improbable character, device, or event introduced suddenly in a work of fiction or drama to resolve a situation or untangle a plot.

    3.A person or event that provides a sudden and unexpected solution to a difficulty.”

    Ryu’s MRI showed no structural damage; and they gave him a cortisone shot, so I don’t know what that means for him going forward this season. Sounds like his shoulder just plain ol’ hurts a bit, and they’ll just deal with pain management.

    • Flavor said, on September 16, 2014 at 5:14 pm

      Just a quick thought, but the Dodgers are still not a lock to win the division. They are heading from Colorado for 4 in Chicago and they won’t be gimmies. First off, LA’s pitching staff should be a little shaken after leaving Col. Secondly, the Cubs have some VERY good, young hitters who aren’t packing in the season like a vet team out of contention might. Baez, Soler, Rizzo (if he can keep his back straight)— these guys are straight up stud hitters. And with the DOdgers having but 2 good starting pitchers, I could easily see the Cubs (who helped us out back in 2010 if you recall) taking at least 2 of those games and maybe even 3……

      • blade3colorado said, on September 16, 2014 at 6:08 pm

        Agree. Cubs will be contenders either next season or the one after. I have Baez and Soler on an FL team and they are GOOD (albeit, Baez is feast and famine right now). Couple the aforementioned with the Cubs theoretically, having nothing to lose – they should play the Bums loose.

        Maalox’s preejaculation will be really funny when the Dodgers face plant during the post season. Well, you can still jack off to those old Dodger wins in the Reagan years. I am fairly certain that video tape exists of that ancient era of baseball. lqtm.

    Selig was in the booth for a couple innings during tonight’s Mets game. My favorite part was when he said MLB attendance was at an all-time as the Mets-Marlins played in front of a crowd consisting mainly of family and close friends.

  37. salty said, on September 16, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    Teams out of contention are always dangerous with nothing to lose playing teams under pressure. But just as Cubs could knock off the Bums, same could be said for Padres kicking our ass, as they have done in the past.

    The Giants have paid the price for a season’s worth ground attack hits in these few innings.

  41. salty said, on September 16, 2014 at 7:53 pm

    How about those dodgers. 12 hits 2 runs
    Rockettes up 7-2.

  42. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 8:40 pm

    Well, at least wee got the lead right back.

  43. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    10-4 yetis, top o’9th.

  44. blade3colorado said, on September 16, 2014 at 8:45 pm

    Speaking of the Cubs and Dodgers upcoming series, I hope the Bums have to face Arrieta (who threw a complete game 1 hit, 13 SO, shutout of the Reds today. No hitter was broken up in the 8th). Dude is a completely different player then when he played for the Orioles, as he has been mostly superb this season.

    • snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 8:53 pm

      Amazing to me blade, you’re somewhere in the middle of the Cambodian jungle, yet you’re blogging here about the Giants…

      • blade3colorado said, on September 16, 2014 at 8:55 pm

        Nothing else to do. Actually Tom, I am waiting for Sokeng to show up at my hotel. We’re going swimming and umm . . . other stuff. ‘Nuff said. 🙂

      • Alleykat said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:06 pm

        Ahh the Good Life of Blade the world traveler.
        No adventure to far, to hard,without rewards as he plucks more grapes in his mouth from the lovely hands of the local ladies at poolside!

      • blade3colorado said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:42 pm

        True AK . . . Life is pure drudgery here. 🙂

  45. Macdog said, on September 16, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    A run or 2 would really, really be welcome. That 8th inning was stressful enough.

  46. Alleykat said, on September 16, 2014 at 8:58 pm

    Jake doing the slow burn off the mound. Sure he wanted to finish the inning but Boch made the right call as Romo comes thru big time!
    Like to add atleast 1 more in the 9th

    • unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:07 pm

      Romo scared the shit out of me.

      • James said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:14 pm

        Seems like he’s been doing that for 5 years now, even as he’s been one of the half dozen best bullpen guys in baseball over that time. No worries, one day he will be as shitty as you fear him to be, and he’ll no longer torture you, Chuck!

  47. Macdog said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:07 pm

    Nice bunt by Craw, but curious timing: 2 outs in the 9th with a .169 hitter up next.

  48. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:08 pm

    Perez 0 for 9 in this series. Why not try Gary Brown for a game, sheezus. Perez hasn’t hit essentially whenever he’s been up. I’d drop him off the 40 in the offseason, I’ve seen enough. All glove, no hit…

    • unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:12 pm

      Try LeRoy Brown. The baddest man in the whole damn town.

  49. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:10 pm

    I hope Casilla doesn’t.

  50. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Wow. There’s a play . . . Didn’t think he had a shot.

  51. Alleykat said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Sweet play Crawdaddy!!!
    Take some pine Trumbo.

  52. salty said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Casilla with just a one run lead is scary

  53. Macdog said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:13 pm

    Wow, that was some play.

  54. chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    When he his on, there are few who are more fun to watch, at SS, than Craw.

  55. Macdog said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:15 pm

    Jake beats the Snakes!

  56. chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:15 pm

    Peavy with another gem. Liking this guy more all the time.

  57. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:15 pm

    There you go. Creep a little closer. Peavey has been a stud.

  58. James said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    This was a great win. Makes up for a hard loss or two.

  59. DJLoo said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    Bum & Jake and pray for a quake…

  60. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    Peavy nails again, definitely making a contract drive. He’s making himself a lot of dough these past 6 weeks…

  61. unca_chuck said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    Crawfish with a game . . .

  62. Alleykat said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    All Flappers can breath a sigh of relief, cause we sure damn needed that “W”
    Great pitching by Jake the Snake Peavy!!

  63. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    Gained a game on the Doghairs, dot’s nice. Rocks won their one of 6 against LA. As important, Giants keep 2.5 in front of Pittsburgh for the WC. And, of course the Snakes are putting in some young dude from the minors to start tomorrow. Another unknown starter. Teams know the Giants don’t do well against unknowns…

  64. chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    Just keep winning and see what the hell happens. Winning the West is a longshot. If the Giants go 7-4, the bums would have to go 4-7 to create a regular season tie. Damn….seeing the play by Crawford again…what a beauty.

  65. snarkk said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Just saw the replay on Posey’s jack. Looked like Panda on that one, golfed it out…

  66. chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Fuck…looking at Posey’s numbers against Collmenter. Off the damned charts.

  67. blade3colorado said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:45 pm

    Nice win even though I didn’t see it. Great to have this blog giving the blow by blow results.

    • chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:19 pm

      How you doing, Steve? You still in Cambodia? I have been lazy and have not checked…do you have your blog going? Safe travels and happy trails.

      • blade3colorado said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:25 pm

        Yes, in fact – I am about to do another post (have done 2 thus far). Feel free to view and comment. 🙂

  68. Alleykat said, on September 16, 2014 at 9:47 pm

    Man, Boch looks a lot more chilled out on a win on the road. Easy interview, has the Tabasco bottle, Cholo hot sauce as well behind him, think he’s all in for a Boch Burrito and a Corona or 2.,

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 17, 2014 at 8:24 am

      Haha, I noticed that too. I guess Bochy is a Tabasco man. Didn’t look like the Cholula had been touched. Personally I prefer Tapatillo.

  69. blade3colorado said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    New post on my blog . . .http://aroundtheworldwithblade.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/angor-wat-bayon-temple-cambodia-part-ii/

    • chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:46 pm

      Good stuff. Keep it flowing, brother. I was curious, though, where are all the pictures of the naked babes?

      • blade3colorado said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:54 pm

        LOL. I am going to be a little bit more circumspect this time around Chi. I have been seeing a gal named Sokeng, but posting it on my blog may cause some issues at home and other countries. lqtm 🙂

  70. chipower9 said, on September 16, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    Good night, Flappers. Get that series win tomorrow, and keep on keeping on!

  71. Nipper said, on September 17, 2014 at 5:02 am

    At least Peavy showed up to play. Team didn’t do much. God the Giants have a lot of weak sisters on this team. Injuries have put a lot of fire power on the sidelines at a critical time.

    • chipower9 said, on September 17, 2014 at 8:46 am

      They are top 10 MLB-wide in almost all offensive categories, and are 1st in RBIs with two out. Weak sisters notwithstanding, the team as a whole is doing ok.

  72. willedav said, on September 17, 2014 at 7:13 am

    That was a great W last night. Night before one bad pitch and Trumbo burned them, last night Craw wouldn’t let it happen. He and Ishi moved Pence around, the all important good out sac fly. Peavy was nails.
    Obviously, CF back up will be issue for off season (again). If you don’t like Blanco, who as Miller pointed out, numbers seem to diminish as leadoff, then find someone different. But Perez, Brown etc. won’t cut it.

    Bottom feeders caused havoc last night, with Rox tripping up LA, Texas beating A’s featuring great Rougned Odor highlight and ChiSox comeback W over Royals. None of these games are givens. You have to go out and play well and grind through last days of season when lot of guys are tired and sore and play good baseball to win.

  73. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 17, 2014 at 8:21 am

    Anyone else catch Posey’s post game interview. He looks almost as irritated as Bonds was when giving an interview. Lighten up Posey you play baseball for a living. It can’t be that bad.

    • willedav said, on September 17, 2014 at 8:49 am

      I dunno, I’m sure all these guys have sensitive side to criticism from reporters, who are by definition outsiders to the clubhouse. That was tough game and Collmenter gives Giants a hard time.
      Posey seems like all business on the outside, say as little as possible and be diplomatic (as opposed to Kazmir last night ragging on his teammates) and toe company line ala Bochy. Lot of times too reporters have an issue they want to press, Baggs no different. I’m sure Posey just doesn’t want to go there or be quoted for publication.

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 17, 2014 at 8:53 am

        Yeah, I know. It’s just funny to me watching Posey almost give an unscripted answer and then pull back and go to his quote list.

    • chipower9 said, on September 17, 2014 at 8:51 am

      Typical Posey. He has never been a rah-rah guy. Probably the last guy who wants to be in front of the camera. I really could care less as long as he tears it up when he has the bat in his hands.

    Even if, as seems likely, a well-rested Huddy takes up where he left off, we know who is not our enemy: https://twitter.com/DodgerInsider/status/512675474170851328
