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):

Let others have the day. We own the night. Flappers around the world, UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    NOWWWWWW we need to add on . . . . WTF is going on out there?

  2. stickman said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:53 pm

    Kinda called it on Strickland as i saw that top of the order coming up in the sixth and Peavy likely running on fumes. Why BB15 brought in Lopez in a pressure situation i do not know ~ probably memories. Having the Strychnine kid available made all the difference in the HIGH pressure occasion. Hall and Law may also be in next season’s pen. Good young arms who can shut em down pronto. YES!

  3. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    Yeah Wilco, when you need a strikeout, and they needed it there, bring in Strickland. Dude can freakin’ bring it!…

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

    Buster comes through, needed that run, big time!…

  5. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 2:55 pm

    Giants just DFA’ed Scutaro…

  6. chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:02 pm

    Sucks balls. No fox sports on the boob tube at the ducking hotel. Good radio reception though. How did the Giants score?

    • unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:03 pm

      Noooooooo. Triple by Panik. Single by Buster. Then a strike ’em out throw ’em out DP (Panda), then Pence filed out.

      • chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:05 pm

        Thanks, Charlie.

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:04 pm

      Panik with a deep fly to center that went in and out of the CF glove. Ended up on 3b. Posey with the RBI.

    • unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:05 pm

      This replay brought to you by speedy oil change. Speedy oil change. your smog, oil change, tune up and whatever the fuck shop.

  7. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:02 pm

    One more out of Strickland and it’s . . .

    Casilla?

    • salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:04 pm

      Only the 7th.

  8. chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:04 pm

    Heard Strickland pitch to Desmond. Fucking 97, 99, and 1 Fucking Hundred. Sit the fuck down!

  9. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:06 pm

    Fuck he killed that.

  10. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:06 pm

    Rally killer.

  11. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:07 pm

    Well, he ain’t God.
    Woke up the mopey fucks…

  12. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    HP ump (Diaz) very inconsistent all day…

  13. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:12 pm

    Kids gotta figure out a second pitch.

    • unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:13 pm

      1-2 count though you have to burn one in the dirt.

      • WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:16 pm

        Yep. He loves the fastball just a bit too much.

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

    Oh Fuck.

  15. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    Fuck fuckfucck

  16. wswins said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    the LH hitters are different for him…

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

    Got work to do with lefties…a resounding answer to Stockman’s 2:53.

    • stickman said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:53 pm

      Overreliance on heat. Happens a lot with kids. He’ll get some severious coaching time come ST. With Gardner and Righetti around that should work out okay.

  18. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    oh, shitfuckshitfuckshitfuck. Come on Jeremy. Try to remember how to do this.

    (the dead lay in pools of maroon below)

  19. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:19 pm

    Isn’t this the umpire everyone complains about? How did he make the playoffs?

    • DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:23 pm

      He won wild card ump game.

  20. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    Well, they WERE solo shots…

  21. Flavor said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    Jesus, long inning. Thank God we got out of that with the lead.

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

    Time for a bomb or 2 of our own.

  23. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:25 pm

    Nice to know Bum’s bat is on the bench, too…

    • DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:27 pm

      I’d use him right now…

  24. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    Just getting one run back would be huge

  25. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    Baserunning hasn’t been the greatest lately for the Giants…

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

    Fuck. What was that? Crawfish tried for 3rd? on a grounder to 3rd?

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

    Yeah, I prefer Bummie to Perez every time.

    • DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:34 pm

      I’m starving.

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

    Nailbiting time with Romo…

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

    Aye aye aye. I I I, eye eye eye. However you spell it this is murder.

  30. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    Tough situation for Bochy having used Affeldt and Lopez. Still have Harper.

  31. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    Romo rarely has a nice, clean inning anymore…

  32. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    Aye carumba.

  33. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    I need a drink!

  34. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    Well no worse than a walk. Get a DP

  35. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    With 2 outs might go to Casilla vs Harper

  36. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    Thank Christ!

  37. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    Nice play by Belt!
    Romo gets him out on a fastball…

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

    phhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  39. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:49 pm

    Awesome. Could be a fairly easy 9th with 7-8-9 hitters up

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

    Get some insurance anyway

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

    yep, add on.

  42. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:52 pm

    I don’t get that. Ya gotta move Blanco to second somehow…

  43. blade3colorado said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:52 pm

    Woke up at 5 fucking 30 in the am because I knew the Giants were leading. Almost had a heart attack as ESPN was loading, as it showed Harper’s photo on the front page . . . then relief as I saw the 3-2 score. I’ll take a nap this afternoon. Get some more runs GMEN!

  44. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    Of course someone named Randall Grichuk homered off Kershaw.
    Why wouldn’t he?

  45. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:57 pm

    Look at those idiots in the panda suits. What an embarrassment to our fan base.

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

    Scheist. Here we go. A clean inning, please??

  47. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 3:59 pm

    Let’s go Casilla! Let’s go GIANTS!

  48. stickman said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    Good thing the Flap is essentially all male. It would be tough with those wearing nail-polish in this inning. Stuff probably tastes rank.

  49. blade3colorado said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    My WIFI connection is interminably sloooooooooooooooooow. Just caught the Bums and Cards score 1st inning – Cards up 1-0.

  50. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:02 pm

    Dang, First low ball strike all day

  51. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:03 pm

    I hope Casilla doesn’t have to field anything else…

  52. blade3colorado said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:03 pm

    OK, there’s one. Grab some pine Ramos.

  53. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    Come on, shut this sucka down!…

  54. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    1 more mutherfu….

  55. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    Ballgame.

    Humm Baby!

  56. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    Ball fucking game!!!!

  57. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    Yes!!!!!!!!

  58. wswins said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    YES Congrats

  59. Flavor said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    I freaking can’t believe we won that game.

    • salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:06 pm

      I’m pinching myself

  60. snarkk said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    Yep.
    Giants.
    WTF NOT!!!!!!

  61. salty said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    Feels like 2010

  62. blade3colorado said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    Yes!

  63. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    Fuck could flip to the fucking Dodger game fast enough?

  64. gianthead said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    FUCK YEAH

  65. dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    That’s Giants baseball baby. Hellz yeah!

  66. blade3colorado said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    Big time MOJO going on in San Francisco. I can’t see any other explanation for it.

  67. gianthead said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    We learned one thing. Strickland only pitches to righties from now on…

  68. Macdog said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:08 pm

    YEAHHH!!!

  69. blade3colorado said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:08 pm

    If Kershaw face plants, I will have died and gone to heaven today.

    • Flavor said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      not sure if you can see the game but the shadows are absurd right now. It’s not just one side sunny the other side shade, there’s pockets of sunlight sprinkled in

      • blade3colorado said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:13 pm

        No such luck Flavor. WIFI sucks here and consequently, I can’t get a video feed. Gamecast hell today.

  70. gianthead said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:10 pm

    I am so glad I did not try and go to the game today. Probably would have been a jinx but probably would have had a heart attack…

  71. WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    I don’t know guys, I am torn. I almost feel like we have to root for the doghairs. A giants-Dodgers pennant series, how could we not want that?

    • WilcoJoe said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      That being said, I just can’t do it.

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:15 pm

      No way Joe

      • gianthead said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:25 pm

        Sounds good on paper..but FUCK THE BUMS!!!

  72. chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    Fuck Yeah! What a huge win!

    Tortuous. I am getting way too old for this shit. But, I will gladly volunteer for 10 more tortuous wins this post season!

    WOO HOO!

    It is a GREAT day to be a San Francisco Giant fan!

  73. twinfan1 said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:13 pm

    I watched the last 2 innings between 2 fingers… Romo was HUGE. It was like he got 5 outs. And right through the meat of the order.

    • eddacker said, on October 4, 2014 at 9:41 am

      my man Romo, the only bobblehead I own.

  74. chipower9 said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    Congrats on another awesome win Flap Universe!

    Hey! natty Nats – FU!!!

  75. DJLoo said, on October 3, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    I swear I can’t remember how they scored the first 2 runs…
