A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

2010…2012….2014?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 3, 2014

Well, if heart and soul have anything to do with pitching, I like our chances today. And having watched Strasburg pitch a number of times, I’ll take the fire and moxie from Peavy over the robotic pitch counted Strasburg.

As we know as much or more than any baseball fan, anything is possible. If you had told me when I started the first Flap blog over at blogger.com (as a joke because the Splash blog kept crashing that day) that 6 years later two Giants fans who didn’t know each other would meet at my blog, become proud members of a supernova known as “Flap Nation” and one day meet up in Ho Chi Minh City for a “knowing dude head nod”, I woulda called you crazy….

And yet here they are yesterday (Blade on the right, PaulinAsia on the left with the peace sign):

    Grab some pine, Werth!

    Yikies. Peavy’s gonna be at 100 without giving up a hit by the 5th.

    However good Bochy may be on his route to the HOF, he is not always the most astute of lineup setters. Now that we all know BB9 has his timing and stroke back he is the logical #3 hitter. Buster is better suited for cleanup. Not that it necessarily would have turned out any different, but imagine if Belt had been the guy up with two on and only one out. Don’t have the stats in front of me and too lazy to look em up, but my feeling is that Posey is far more apt to GDP than Belt.

    When it comes to selective hitters on the team Panik has to be #1 with Belt second and Buster a rather distant third. Hell, Pablo is creeping up on him, if you can imagine that.

      If the boys keep playing through series to series, I really don’t care how he sets the line-ups, but I can see some validity to your point.

    • salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:00 pm

      Posey is less likely to K. I’ll go with the MVP especially with Belt just working his way back.

  4. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:44 pm

    Pitch count be damned! Just keep putting up zeros, baby!

  5. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:44 pm

    Chi: Add this one to your 11:18 AM. It was a pennant winner…

      Good one, Loo. And at the latrine to boot.

  6. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    Six straight balls by Strassy…work his ass over…

  7. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:53 pm

    C’mon Buster! Atonement time!!

  8. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:54 pm

    Fucker, Strasfuck. Cannot tell via Gay Day if there was any intent or if it got away. Still…

  9. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:54 pm

    Or Panda . . . Bomb time . . .

  10. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:55 pm

    0-2 runner on….no intent

    • Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:58 pm

      Yep…good point, Salt. I wasn’t even looking at the count.

  11. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    Come on Reverend. Pick ’em up!

  12. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:57 pm

    Bothers me a bit Giants only have 2 runs…missed a couple of oops

    • unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:59 pm

      Well, they’ve had a couple oops with their opps.

    • Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:01 pm

      Yeah, not going to dwell on it now…focus is on the pitching and continuing to put up zeros…

  13. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 1:58 pm

    My son’s texting me from school. They are watching the game in his sports medicine class!

    • Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:00 pm

      That’s fricking cool.

  14. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    What a DP!

  15. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    OH YEAH…what a DP!

  16. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    Bizarre fuckin’ DP!

  17. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    Fuck yeah…DP!

  18. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    You guys are killing me, as I cannot see shit via Gay Day…

  19. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    Peavy at 83 thru 5…

  20. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    The only thing I got to see in school like that was the Apollo 12 moon landing. It was in the morning . . .

  21. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:06 pm

    You guys are killing me as I cannot see shit via Gay Day.

  22. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:07 pm

    9 pitch inning! Peavy’s rollin’ through 5!

  23. stickman said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:11 pm

    Except for not being very economical in those first two innings Peavy has been nothing but superb. Even so, he may be getting close to the point whether we like it or not BB15 should have someone like Petit and maybe also Strickland and/or Timmy warmed up as the sixth gets underway. I’m sure Jake’s been around long enough that he wouldn’t take it the wrong way.

  24. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    Solid singles by the Brandons. Gotta get at least one over here…

  25. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    C’mon!! Knock Strasburgh to Strassburg!

    OK, lame, but HIT THIS GUY !

  26. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    Chasing Strasburg in the 6th? Nice

  27. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:14 pm

    Send Blevins to heaven? Ahhhhh fuck it.

    Got to get the kill shot here.

  28. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:14 pm

    Hit the Road Jack, and Don’t Come Back No Mo No Mo…Hit the Road Jack. Buh-Bye Strassy…

  29. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    They got a good back end of the pen., How’s their middle relief?

  30. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    Why not PH for Ishi? He doesnt hit LHP.

    • salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:16 pm

      (Odds improve he’ll hit one now)

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:18 pm

      Thought the same especially with LF sub coming soon. Bochy probably figures Ishi over Perez eh?

    • snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:21 pm

      Radio says no more LHBs on the bench, so that’s why they leave Ishi in, maybe face a RH reliever later…

  31. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:17 pm

    Shit. Who’s on the bench? Perez?

  32. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:18 pm

    So, do you PH for Peavy?

  33. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:19 pm

    he gets to bunt

  34. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:19 pm

    Or take a walk

  35. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    Or waste his AB. Tiburon Blanco time

  36. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:22 pm

    Not good to keep stranding runners…

  37. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:22 pm

    Shit.

  38. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    No one moves the runners.

  39. Chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    Just got cut loose. Mad dash to the car…try to figure out what station in Phoenix carries the game, and then to the hotel to catch the end of it. GO GIANTS!

  40. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:28 pm

  47. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    Just don;’t give up the big fly

  48. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    Can’t ask for more from Peavy. Come on Lopez!

  49. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:40 pm

    Nice little tantrum on the way out…

  50. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:40 pm

    Peavy got lucky Werth missed that hanger.

  51. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    Oh shit. Lopez?

  52. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    Is he bringing in Strickland? No pressure kid.

  58. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Please?

  59. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    Werth and Laroche’s dads were Yankee teammates.

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:49 pm

      Maybe they’re really brothers.

    • snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:55 pm

      I think Werth is Chewbaca’s cousin…

  60. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:47 pm

    Wow. Be Still the hunter.

  61. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    This is beyond brutal on gamecast . . .

  62. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:48 pm
