A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Wild Card Thread!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 1, 2014

This day went extremely slowly. But finally, it’s almost time to play ball.

My gut feeling today wasn’t good but I won’t dwell on that.

We have a chance, I love our starting pitcher and I feel like we have enough of a line up to not totally surprise me with a win.

Trolls, it would not be a good evening for you to frequent the Flap…..

Go Giants!

    my main man Trotter told his good buddy Looney, “No, in order to have a bad feeling you have to have had a good feeling, therefore you have no frame of reference.”
    I just love that line….

    • blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 4:59 pm

      Very Zen like.

  2. blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 4:58 pm

    Succinct and sweet Flavor. Especially the last line. Grrrrrrrrr . . . Sleeping Giants awake all over planet Earth.

  3. wswins said, on October 1, 2014 at 4:58 pm

    Well lets hope all the bettors are wrong all day the money has come in on Pitt…so now the line is pick em…they’re both -105

    • wswins said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:02 pm

      That’s at sportsbook…oddsmaker has the Giants -110 pitt even

  4. gianthead said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:13 pm

    Did Posey just get boo’d?

  5. unca_chuck said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:16 pm

    Yeah, not sure what that was about. Other than you boo the good ones.

    • gianthead said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:33 pm

      Posey is a hard person not to like

  6. Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:21 pm

    very nice start for Bum. He looked nearly unhittable in that inning.

  7. stickman said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:22 pm

    Can you get any tighter for starters? Volquez 8 pitches 6 strikes. Bumgarner 8 pitches 7 strikes.

  8. Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:32 pm

    Volquez needs to chill himself out or this will be a short night for him. His balls are all over the place.

  9. salty said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:32 pm

    Time to pounce on this guy.

  10. gianthead said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:32 pm

    Great AB from Belt

  11. ODB said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:35 pm

    Ishitwata with a bad AB there. Too much first pitch swinging.

  12. gianthead said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:37 pm

    Wasn’t there a troll ban tonight???

  13. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    Jesus Pence is really amped on coffee, it was Panik’s ball on the way.

  14. stickman said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:55 pm

    Gotta love Panik. He simply knows how to slash those hits. The way BA’s have gone down in the NL it would not surprise me a bit if he and Buster fight it out for the 2015 NL batting title. Of course Posey would have to be playing at third or maybe first most of his starts.

  15. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 5:59 pm

    Agree with Flav, Volquez is all over the map with his stuff. He will dig his own grave with his control.
    Giants just need to be patience and they will roast him the 3rd time thru the LU.

  16. stickman said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:02 pm

    Some economical pitching over 3: Volquez 38 pitches 27 strikes. Bumgarner 28 and 23. Simply amazing.

  17. salty said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    Come on Pablo…You fecking own this guy.

  18. WilcoJoe said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:11 pm

    Come on boys. Bags loaded with no outs. Let’s do this Craw!

  19. paulinasia said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:12 pm

    Need to cash in here. Time for a big inning….

    • blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:28 pm

      I knew that MOFO would crash and burn. In fantasy, I always avoided EV like the plague.

  20. DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:13 pm

    Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. WilcoJoe said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:13 pm

    Craw daddy!

  22. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:13 pm

    Grandon Crawford!

  23. Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. gianthead said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    That is how you silence Pirate fans and trolls…

  25. chipower9 said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    Swear to god I was just thinking, watch Craw go grand salami! Fuck yeah!

  26. gianthead said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    I was calling for a Belt 3 bagger…I’ll take this

  27. SanDawg said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:15 pm

    CrawDAD! Shades if Chuck Hiller!

    • DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:26 pm

      When Crawford hit it, I thought sac fly.
      Didn’t think he crushed it…

      • Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:31 pm

        totally agree. I jumped off my couch cautiously…walked slowly toward the tv….and then went insane. Couldn’t believe it.

  28. stickman said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:16 pm

    You want an RBI ~ call Crawdaddy. That stinger at the tail was so happy batting 7th that he went and did what he does best ~ drive em in. Salami can be delicious. None on hand as i’m sipping brandy and doing a couple rounds of fresh Timmy Treats.

  29. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:17 pm

    It got so quiet there so you can hear a pierogi drop.

  30. stickman said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    So much for Volquez’ economy of pitches. No economy class for CrawDaddy. He decided he would rather fly business ++++.

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:43 pm

      First class all the way baby!

  31. unca_chuck said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    There you go. Shut ’em down Bummie, Nice play Panda…

  32. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:26 pm

    Freakin Crawdaddy has a flair for the dramatics on the big stage!!
    Huge Salami silences the crowd as well!
    Bum “LOCKED IN THE ZONE
    Ride Country Strong to the finish!!’

    • blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:29 pm

      Agree AK. Just get outs Bum.

  33. Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:32 pm

    that place just seems like a morgue right now.

    • paulinasia said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:33 pm

      With the Undertaker on the mound, very fitting…

  34. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    Message to Clint Hurdle…
    Tell the interviewer how you really feel,
    well our teams “Fucked “right now the way Bumgarner is throwing and I made a bonehead decision starting Volquez!!

  35. blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:41 pm

    Connection sucks, so getting game info late.

  36. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:43 pm

    Undertaker is just putting extra nails around the Pirates Coffins before the burial.He’s just money in big game starts, nothing fazes him&that’s what you have to have on the road in a hostile environment.

  37. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    Nothing but doom& gloom on the faces of Pirate fans!
    Love itπŸ˜„

  38. paulinasia said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    Just curious from afar — usually there’s some noise from Giants fans on the road. Any there tonight?

  39. unca_chuck said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:49 pm

    Not very many

  40. salty said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:51 pm

    Looks like the Bum who pitched against the Dodgers sept 12

    • blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:58 pm

      Cool.

  41. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:54 pm

    Time to step on the gas.

  42. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    Oh yeah It’s a Brandon night!
    Great job Belt getting that 5th run home!!

  43. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    Belt the Bucs!

  44. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 1, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    Blade, you watching on your special feed?

  45. Irish Kevin said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:00 pm

    This is why we should not frett so much over the regular season. The Giants just become magical in the playoffs!!

  46. Irish Kevin said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:03 pm

    Someone tell this announcer to shut the hell up!! This game is not going into extra innings!!

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:04 pm

      I like Kruk.

      • Irish Kevin said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:05 pm

        Me too

  47. DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:04 pm

    Need more runs.
    5-0 has dark memories…

    • Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:12 pm

      Thinking that Russ Ortiz start Loo?

      • DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:16 pm

        I’m fighting it, Kat.
        Even after all the good since, I’m still scarred for life…

  48. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:04 pm

    Nice AB from Ishikawa there. Way to keep the line moving.

    • Irish Kevin said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:05 pm

      Forced a pitching change!! I like it

  49. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    Hurdle’s walking like he has shit in his pants..

    • Irish Kevin said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:06 pm

      He is having hip surgery at the end of the season,

      • DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:11 pm

        Then he can have it right after the game…

      • Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:15 pm

        Lol..Loo

    • wswins said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:32 pm

      he needs hip surgery after this season cat

  50. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    I was wondering how soon Bochy would get Perez in LF, there it is.

  51. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    With a 5-0 lead, I was definitely glad to see MadBum throw to 1st there.

  52. Irish Kevin said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    Mccutchen’s face just now says it all!! Defeated!

  53. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:24 pm

    Kinda rare to have 2 MVP in back to back years (Posey 2012& McCucheton 2013)facing each other in a playoff.
    Last time it’s happened was Bonds(1992) and Pendleton (1993)

    • Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:25 pm

      well, no wild card till ’95 or whatever it was is probably a contributing reason

  54. Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:27 pm

    ODB– if you would just stop for one post and not reference c*nts and cocks*cking, and salami stuffing and whatever else you’re obsessed with, I can peel off your filter.
    Not all your posts are bad. Many of them make me lol and I know others feel the same way. Just dial it down a bit, dawg.

  55. DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:28 pm

    Pablo’s new walk-up song:

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:30 pm

      lqtm. No walk up song would be revolutionary at this point.

  56. wswins said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:29 pm

    this is a Brandon ball game

  57. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    This ain’t the Reds, Buccos.

  58. DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    Glad to get past that wretched 5-0 number…

    • Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:37 pm

      Feel much better to Loo.
      That game still sticks in my craw as well.

  59. Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    Pirates fans are the saddest sacks I’ve ever seen. Stop moping around. Get on your phone. Go slam some beers. Leave. Just sitting there looking like mopey fucks is the worst look you could give your city…….

    • DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:35 pm

      Plenty of mopey fucks heading out on that tinker-toy bridge…

      • Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:38 pm

        Or maybe jumping off.

  60. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:32 pm

    And a bad decision Shit in pants Hurdle!! With 2 lefties warming up?Dumbshit !!
    The Brandon’s rocking all the RBI’s tonight!!’

  61. blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    I didn’t expect a rout of this magnitude. Just me take, but the season was successful with them getting into the playoffs, as I did not have too many outlandish expectations. That being said, they now get to play a legitame “series” . . . Not this one and out sudden death that the Pirates are experiencing. Anywho, my point is that the Giants have had a successful season and can make it one for the ages going forward.

    • blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:39 pm

      *me = my . . . I was going to edit it, but WTF – that was in honor of Ed. πŸ™‚

      • eddacker said, on October 1, 2014 at 10:00 pm

        cheers me mate, too cool for school
        wadda win

  62. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:41 pm

    Who the fuck is that other announcer? Not Kruk,
    Is he so clueless not knowing how great Bum is?
    Great play Pablo!!!!!

  63. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:50 pm

    Who the hell are some of these Pirates pitchers — Holdzkom, LaFromboiseidaho?

    • DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:53 pm

      They’re the guys we gave them for Jason Schmidt…

      • Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:02 pm

        Lol, but well No Loo.
        But we did give them Voglesong, how ironic he’s back with us.

      • chipower9 said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:27 pm

        I believe Strickland was originally drafted by the Bucs.

  64. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:54 pm

    Panik just quietly gets it done. Pretty impressive to pick up 3 hits in his first playoff appearance.

    • DJLoo said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:58 pm

      The Mac-A-Loo-za turned his career around…

    • blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:58 pm

      Agree Dirt. IMO dude played a big part in turning around the season.

      • chipower9 said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:28 pm

        Agree 100%. The kid is MONEY!

    • Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:02 pm

      its so understated that it’s overstated. I can’t even begin to really get this Panik-thing.

  65. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 7:58 pm

    One thing cool about W/C elimination games,the winner like the Giants get an extra champange / beer party when they go all the way!!Murph will be a busy, but happy dude to accommodate that feat!

  66. Irish Kevin said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    So the National watching this game, are they saying this is just one game, no worries. Or are they thinking shit, shit, shit!!

    • Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:03 pm

      Hey, the Giants hit the post season and different shit starts going down. This is an unquestionable FACT.

      • Irish Kevin said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:06 pm

        I agree, they are saying SOB, what the hell is going on!!

      • blade3colorado said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:07 pm

        Awesome. GMen have a lot of fairy dust.

  67. twinfan1 said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:09 pm

    A Giraffe, A Crawdad, and a big Bum…works for me.

  68. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:10 pm

    15 straight shutout innings for MadBum in the postseason going back to Game 2 of 2012 WS.

  69. Flavor said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:10 pm

    I’ve never been behind Loo’s grassroots push to get MadBum a new deal because of all the shit I’ve posted before. But right now, I’m behind the restructure.

    • chipower9 said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:25 pm

      Yep. Back up the Brinks truck and give him whatever the fuck he wants!

  70. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    Looks like last Sunday will be the final time in 2014 that the Bucs won in Pittsburgh.

  71. Alleykat said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    Sure the Nats are thinking about a pissed off attitude boy Peavy, in the back of their minds!
    Man were peaking with Belt coming around, the rook Panik,Panda nice approach at the plate, Bring on the Nationals!

  72. Macdog said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    Make it 16 straight zeros for MadBum. Bring on the Nats!

  73. wswins said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    I just wonder how really good this team would have been with Pagan, Morse, Cain, and an average Lincy…but bring on the nats

  74. chipower9 said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    Fuck yeah! Complete game masterpiece by Big Country!

    Let’s Roll!

    Bring on the natty nats!

  75. gianthead said, on October 1, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    I never expected this thrashing of the Pirates. ..what a game!

    All we need is one of two in DC…let’s go boys!
