On Second Thought…….

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 17, 2014

I hadn’t stopped to think about the impact of the Ryu injury, but it could be a big deal. The Dodgers are going to come out of Colorado like most teams, with a chewed up pitching staff. Then they have to go to Chicago, a team filled with a bunch of young, strong power hitters who are looking to make a name for themselves, not quit on the season.

Two day games today and if all goes right we’re two games out? With a Dodger team that now has only 2 reliable starting pitchers?

This isn’t over……

    alright knuckleheads, 2 down with ten to play. here’s the question, would you rather be 2 up with the dodgers chasing or 2 down and doing the chasing? i prefer the chasing. it sets you up perfectly for a run in the PS, especially if you can still get there with the WC. I think playing while you’re looking over your shoulder can be harder to do and it’s easy to get your head in the wrong place, playing not to lose. and btw, what a great season: drama, pathos, irony, dramatic metaphor. it’s pretty much all been there. THIS is why we watch and care and once it’s done, win or lose, eventually can’t wait for it to happen again. cheers lads!

      Good points. Dare I ask this now? Timmy: on or off the postseason roster, if we achieve the need to address that dilemma? Does he get Zitoed?

        Timmy on, Guitty off….

      If I had Kershaw, I wouldn’t care either way. He gives them a huge advantage.
      Great news about Pagan…

        That’s a helluva one-two punch with Greinke, who apparently has still never lost to the Giants. Perfect scenario for a dramatic Giants sweep… 🙂

      by the way, great to see you Eric, hope things are good and would love to see you at another Flapalooza at some point in the future…

        Thanks Craig. things have been a bit crazy the last year or so but i try to poke my head in here. unfortunately, it’s usually bereft of any sort of cogent thought. everything is pretty good, just crazy. twisco’s are both starting for the varsity football team in their sophmore year but one of them just broke his ankle making a tackle while playing safety. played the rest of the game but when we looked at it saturday it was, “oh, let’s go get that x-rayed”. work just now slowing down. so.

        ugh. That sucks about your son. Bad ass for playing through it though

    Nice post, Eric. I agree. It’s starting to feel a little like I remember it feeling back around this time in ’97, leading up to that epic “Brian Johnson” game. When the G’s went from worst to first (still remember the Chron headline and photo when they clinched the division: “Worst? No, First!” with a pic of the Shooter with his arms raised to the sky after saving the clinching game). I remember that “Brian Johnson game” being an afternoon game, and I was walking up Fillmore and ducked into Pierce Street Annex to watch it. Would love to see such heroics and drama again down in LA this time….

    Yes. Good to see you here, Eric, and also sorry to hear about your son. Hope he heals up quickly.

    Paul – I was at the Brian Johnson game. It should be called the Rod Beck/Brian Johnson game, because before Johnson got his shot, Beck had to work out of a bases loaded jam. My friend Mike and I were in the upper boxes right above where Johnson hit his shot. One of my all-time favorite Giants games. It was like a playoff game afterwards, and no one wanted to leave the stadium.

    Here is the latest on Pagan and Morse. Pagan expects to return by the weekend. Morse…not good news, but it isn’t like they need him right now. Maybe as RH bat off the bench, but that is about it. Posey and Ishi are handling 1st quite nicely, and Ishi is doing fine at the plate. Belt could be back there soon, too.

      Morse is a big waste of shit in a uni. Pagan plays like a 20 year old in a 30 something body. Always injured.
