Waking Up to A Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 23, 2014

I admit it. I didn’t watch the whole game. Getting up at 4am has it’s limitations on when you ultimately shut your eyes to go to sleep.

But I caught the end of the game on mlb.com.

Glad we won, now I feel that we can at least relax a little on the wild card.

The baseball gods are shinning down on Gregor Blanco. He IS the White Shark once again.

He’s gonna have to be if we want to make any noise in the post season this year. I have counted out Pagan and Morse for the rest of the year…..

someone took a picture of Strickland and it looks like a painting. Check it out

    Ahhhhh fuck. God I fucking hate the Dodgers.

  3. Alleykat said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    That was a killer.

  4. Alleykat said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:49 pm

    Fuckin Turner only got the start cause Gordon sucked balls to the extreme last night! Fuck LA

  5. Alleykat said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:54 pm

    Yeah Fuck off Puig!!!!!!
    Your stupid ass stare after swing at a pitch 6 ft outside makes you look even more of a moron!!
    Fucking rally time Flappers!!!

  6. tedspe said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    Kroop or Kripe said this is a crowd of 49, 951.
    WHO’S THE ONE?

  7. Alleykat said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:57 pm

    Fuck Barney, no way Gordon or Turner make that play!

  8. snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    Panda, first ball swinging at crap. Shocking…

  9. chipower9 said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    Fuck I hate the dodgers. And many people will say “but hate is such as strong an negative word.” Fuck that…let me say it again…I HATE THE bums.

  10. salty said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    And predictably Pablo swings at the first fucking pitch again….Jesus everyone knows he’ll chase first pitch

  11. tedspe said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    UHM

  12. Bozo said, on September 23, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    Ahh shit.

  13. snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:00 pm

    I have no clue how this offense will score anything against Kershaw. Bum better play LF…

  14. chipower9 said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:01 pm

    Fuck! Get ’em tomorrow. Outside of that first inning, great outing by Bum…and all for not.

    Kershaw is due for a loss, and Hudson is due to pull a gem out of his hat. Night Flappers.

  15. tedspe said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:01 pm

    Well…not good.
    Too obvious?

    • snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:07 pm

      Uh, yeah, but accurate, ted…

  16. DJLoo said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:01 pm

    United Flight 1042 now boarding for Pittsburgh…

    • chipower9 said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:07 pm

      Yep. We are two out from having that game in our yard (Bucs own the tie-breaker).

  17. salty said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:01 pm

    So irritating watching these hackers tonight. Pence Belt…no clue.

  18. Macdog said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    Blah.

  19. Rooster said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    Well – after the 3rd inning, that one settled into a nice, tense pitching duel. Good game.

    • chipower9 said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:08 pm

      That fucking game sucked blue harry dodger balls….fuck the bums. Don’t take it personally Rooster, but i hate your fucking team.

      • Rooster said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:12 pm

        I don’t, chi – I know where you’re coming from.

      • chipower9 said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:15 pm

        I am sure last night’s game had a similar effect on you Rooster. Well, if you are a bum fan the way the guys here are Giants fans, then it would…

      • Rooster said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:18 pm

        I was flat-out disgusted by the Dodgers ineptness at the plate in extras – Giants were knocking at the door over and over – it was inevitable that they’d kick that F’ing door down eventually.

    • snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:09 pm

      Tense, yeah.
      Nice, not so much…

    • Alleykat said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:18 pm

      It was Rooster, after the 1st Bumgarner settled in, Grienke cruising until Snots took him deep.
      Just a good hard battle of 2 playoff teams!
      Key to me was Donny 2 step starting Turner, and not because of those 2 jacks, which of course we’re killers, but I think he couldn’t stomach how lack of effort Gordon gave him last night.

      • Rooster said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:22 pm

        I wouldn’t call it lack of effort – no doubt, Gordon had a bad game, but I’ve seen him make those plays more often then not – just a bad game – he’s been key to their success this season.

  20. snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    Morse likely out for the season now, too.
    I don’t know why they couldn’t wait a few more days to have him take a game AB this week, not in Diego. That basically toasted his oblique the rest of the season, and maybe was his last AB as a Giant. Having Perez or Dominguez out there is just brutal. I’d put Ishi out there in LF, I don’t care if he’s lefty vs. lefty tomorrow night. Or yeah, Brown. Bochy hates the thought of Brown so much he’ll probably start his ass against Kershaw. It’s so bad I’m actually begging for Bochy to play Ishi. Unbelievable…

  21. Phlabloxxxl said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:05 pm

    I go to 100 on a suck meter that tops out at 25. And I swallow to boot…

    • tedspe said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:11 pm

      Great. Quote a character that is intentionally a moron played by Christopher Guest. Any Gump or Raymond Babbitt quotes to prove how intelligent you are?

      • Phlabloxxxl said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:14 pm

        Nigel Tufnel appears to be sharper than most of my orifices

    • snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:13 pm

      My goodness, your mama must be proud…

  22. sportdude said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:08 pm

    Belt pence and Pablo can’t hit at all. Panik and Buster the only ones. Re Morse..The Giant medical staff makes mistake after mistake. Years worth. Puzzles me as a sports medine physical therappist that we have the same trainers for since Conte left. STUPID. No other team lets a player swing in BP let alone a game until an oblique is 100 %

    • snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:11 pm

      Thank you. That oblique injury was not even 3 weeks in, and he was swinging in BP, and sore after. Yet they still let him get out there and let it rip in a game AB on Saturday. Oh, well, on to more Perez…

  23. sportdude said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:10 pm

    oxx…you are right acept for Posey. At least when you are stupid you are consistent Just the rest of that crew we might agree with you for the 1st time..

  24. Phlabloxxxl said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:13 pm

    Bumgarner sure is phenomenal hitting those home runs, and I must say, Puig is a dirtbag…

    • Phlabloxxxl said, on September 24, 2014 at 7:11 am

      Why do the editors invariably misspell misspell “Bubblegamer?”

  25. snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:24 pm

    Whoa, Kruk and Kuip post game kinda hammerin’ the Giants for crappy efforts at the plate…

  26. snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:39 pm

    Here’s my LU for tomorrow:

    CF Brown
    2B Panik
    1B Posey
    C Susac
    LF Ishi
    3B Duffy
    RF Blanco
    SS Craw
    P Lincecum

    They either get no hit, or win. Nothing in between…

    • Alleykat said, on September 23, 2014 at 11:08 pm

      I’m ok with it Snarkk!
      Problem is Bochy will never pull Pence with his iron man status streak,the most in baseball. Yeah he sucks along with Fatso this month( both are killing us down the stretch)but the skipper plays his vets till they drop like Pagan and Morse.I Might personally punish Tubby by starting him behind the dish, with Posey at 1st and Susac at 3rd or vice- versa!

      • snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 11:12 pm

        That ironman thing is worthless. Nobody cares. Pence is 3 for the month, basically. Time to sit. Panda hitting about .190 for the month. Time to sit…

      • zumiee said, on September 23, 2014 at 11:14 pm

        Bochy is old-school, he’s not going to be the one to break Pence’s streak.

  27. zumiee said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    Probably just sour grapes on my part to suggest it’s suspicious that Turner came to the Dodgers and is now hitting 70 points above his career average. Just a coincidence so many players having resurgences on the Dodgers, or they’re the most ‘roided up team since the A’s of the late ’80s.

    • snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 10:55 pm

      That second homer he hit a low curve, golfed the sucker almost with just one arm and a very smooth swing, didn’t swing hard at all…

  28. zumiee said, on September 23, 2014 at 11:11 pm

    The funny thing is, if the Giants win the last game of the series, they can have a champagne party for making the playoffs, right at Dodger Stadium. Or if the Giants lose, and Milwaukee loses, the Giants can have the champagne party anyway, while the Dodgers are having their own champagne party. Only in baseball could something so ridiculous happen.

    • snarkk said, on September 23, 2014 at 11:14 pm

      I’ve said it before, this champagne thing for anything short of the pennant and the WS is bogus. If anybody had a reason to hoist some champagne, it was Haren last night — he pitched enough innings to vest his $10M option for next year…

  29. blade3colorado said, on September 24, 2014 at 12:45 am

    Just got back to my hotel room and saw the results. Only good news here is knowing that Phlabby (10:14pm post) swallows when he services other Dodger fans in the rest rooms between innings.

    Go Giants!

    • Phlabloxxxl said, on September 24, 2014 at 8:14 am

      SF, though, can be proud of its efforts:
