    A good friend of mine is a very passionate and knowledgeable Dogger fan. He says Puig is another Mondesi and Mondesi wasn’t anything too too special. Says he’d trade Puig for Hamels in heartbeat straight up.

    That surprised me.

    • Flavor said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:15 pm

      you’ve always been too high on Puig.

    Go Giants!

    It looks like it will be on the MLB channel tonight. Screaming from the easy chair, thats what I’m talkin’ about.

    • Bozo said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:13 pm

      Or, Cubs and Padres. Fuck. Back to screaming at the small screen.

      • alleykat69 said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:43 pm

        .That Sucks Bozo,
        MLB playing the tease game with you.Always pissed me off to know end,when I couldn’t find my team on the TV when they should be on.

    Gotta big drive to Connecticut tomorrow, and back. Can’t stay up. But GO, GIANTS!

  5. Carstie Clausen said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:39 pm

    Nearly perfectly matched first inning: Leadoff double, followed by runner on first. Both pitchers escape, Frias with 19 pitches, Hudson with 18.

  6. James said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    Any umpire who over the course of a season calls more than 3 pitches like the belt high fastball Hudson didn’t get as balls should be fired for incompetence.

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:48 pm

      I totally blame the pitcher. Playing “cute” and throwing wild pitches – it’s all on him.

  7. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    Walk the pitcher? Dumb.

  8. James said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:52 pm

    Yasiel is a better player than Mondesi, but Raul is better than

    WTF was Giggles walk-up song? It was as awful as he’s been…

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:58 pm

      Simple Man by Shinedown (Lynyrd Skynyrd original I think).

      • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:04 pm

        Thanks, Blade.

    • James said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:07 pm

      I didn’t notice, but apparently a shitty cover of a Skynyrd tune. Bum prefers the original.

      • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:09 pm

        I only heard screeching…

      • James said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:20 pm

        I looked at the “official” list and noticed that they have the wrong tune listed for Aoki, so who knows if it really is that fucked up cover.

  10. alleykat69 said, on May 19, 2015 at 7:56 pm

    McDP really mustered up on that AB.

  11. alleykat69 said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:07 pm

    WelI shit I thought Giggles walk up music was” Double mint Gum”
    double your pleasure double your outs, with double mint double mint double mint gum…

  12. djloo27 said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:10 pm

    Nothing like a little 2 out rinky-dink…

  13. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Huddy dancing through trouble again there. He seems to hang a lot of sliders these days. But he’s been getting through it tonight so far.

  14. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:29 pm

    McG is just the invisible man out there.

  15. James said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:30 pm

    That might have been a productive out had a runner been on for Casey.

  16. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:41 pm

    Nice inning by Huddy; the ump ripped him off by missing a strike three call.

  17. alleykat69 said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:42 pm

    Frias should never be allowed to swing a bat. The guy is a disgrace up there.

  18. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:45 pm

    I’d love to hear a good a good explanation for why it’s appropriate for ESPN to have jilted coach Mark Jackson part of the broadcast team cover the Warrior’s series.

    Good to get the first game, but Klay Thompson did everything in his power to blow that game in the last 1:30. And he cannot handle James Harden defensively. Houston is game. This will not be a walk in the park. Dubs will need a much better effort in game 2 to go up 2-0.

    • ewisco said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:53 pm

      i actually came here to voice the same complaint. isn’t this conflict of interest? and the officiating is just unbelievable. harden on defense had his arm AROUND thompson, just holding him in place (off the ball) and that’s not a foul. yet harden gets the ball and you look at him funny and it’s a foul. it’s really unwatchable for me. curry can’t buy a foul yet harden gets every call.

  19. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:51 pm

    McGiggles disease . . . I think it is contagious.

  20. djloo27 said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:51 pm

    Does everybody out there call them the “Dubs”?
    Don’t like it at all…

    • xoot said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:32 pm

      Oakland Dubs for some of us–it’s an era about to end, as they get ready to move to south McCovey Cove.

  21. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:54 pm

    Nice catch Hunter πŸ™‚

  22. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:56 pm

    Huddy with an assist from the ballpark. A-Gon gets AT&Teed.

  23. djloo27 said, on May 19, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    Ishikawa bobblehead should be doing the helmet slam…

  24. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:02 pm

    You’ll need batteries first.

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:03 pm

      Yeah, Amy G. did that just for Willie, trying to play the recording without batteries. πŸ™‚

    • willedav said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:11 pm

      or a clue.

  25. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:04 pm

    Have that bullpen ready.

  26. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Huddy’s did a good job against a lineup in which everyone appears to be hitting .300.

  27. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Bochy read your mind zum.

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:12 pm

      πŸ™‚
      Nice game from Hudson. He looked rocky early, but got a good rhythm going and did well.

  28. willedav said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    Given about 5 strikes, Guerrero finally got nice line drive to end Hudson’s night. Leaves with a lead tho.

  29. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:19 pm

    Hey ewisco, until those last two free throws, Curry had one for the game. That just can’t be right. Someone farts in Harden’s vicinity and it’s a continuation and one. Granted, he does generate a lot of contact driving the lane, but it seems to me he has the officials in his back pocket.

    It’s hard to listen to Jackson call these games for me. There’s another series, why not have him do that one? Fox loves to do that with Karros and Hershiser too.

    • ewisco said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:45 pm

      i think ESPN loves the whole concept. and what it comes down to for me is if MJ has half the character that he says he has (though a priest who screws call girls becomes a question mark) why doesn’t he say “i’m not going to do it”. ESPN has nothing to lose and everything to gain by fanning this flame. MJ has to be the one who says no. call me when the world ends because that’s what it would take.

      • Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:51 pm

        Lol. You had me at the call girl thing. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if that’s exactly what ESPN is going for, some kind of Peyton Place mojo to add some spice.

  30. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:21 pm

    The flubbed double-play is turning into a nightmare.

  31. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:21 pm

    Panik is usually pinpoint with his throws. Bad time to bobble one.

  32. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:22 pm

    That was a lousy performance from Lopez.

  33. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:23 pm

    Atta kid Sergio.

  34. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    Wow. That was a high-wire act, but the Giants got through that inning.

  35. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:42 pm

    Another glitch on a double-play.

  36. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:45 pm

    Van Slyke picked off firstbase! Who saw THAT coming??

    • Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:49 pm

      I’d like to see a replay of that one just to see what the hell he was thinking.

  37. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    An insurance run here would be a really groovy thing.

  38. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    That sucker is gone in Cincy.

  39. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    AT&T has a remarkable, calming influence on hot offenses. lol

  40. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:54 pm

    Hilarious that it occurred near those cartoon cars . . . Almost as if they were laughing at the dude. πŸ™‚

  41. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:55 pm

    Ol’ Donnie Two Times had to do the Donnie Two Step on that one.

  42. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:58 pm

    Pence was a little rusty tonight. The time-off showed a little tonight.

    • Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:00 pm

      I agree. Was thinking the same thing. It was bound to happen, it’ll take a week or so probably to get all the way back from a timing perspective.

  43. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:58 pm

    There’s your insurance run zum!

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:00 pm

      That was a heck of a run! It took a lot of imagination from the baseball gods!

  44. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 9:59 pm

    Ha! Kruk called it!

  45. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    Let’s see if Duffy can split the outfielders here.

  46. Bozo said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:04 pm

    Close it out now.

  47. Lurker John said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:07 pm

    Casilla has always had some nasty movement on that two seamer.

  48. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:09 pm

    Ah, nothing can come easy.

    sweet.

  55. willedav said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:24 pm

    Glad to see Hudson get a W. This is it for him, last ones he’ll ever have in his career. Always liked him, class guy and pretty funny too.
    According to cbs game tracker, lot of pitches thrown in low-mid 80s, but still getting guys out.

    • Paul Sorensen said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:36 pm

      Yeah, Loo, I was reading that earlier and remembered you raising that possibility. Oh, not sure if you saw my post last week (or whenever), but I did in fact go to Tracks before the Clapton concert at the Garden, thanks for the tip…

  57. eddacker said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:38 pm

    TL tomorrow night, nice outing for Huddy. When I was at the yard last Amy G. walked right past me headed to an office somewhere. She was really tall. She doesn’t look tall during her game segments. Some times I think the worse part of being a Giants fan is all the commercials on KNBR.

    This game win takes all the pressure off having to deliver a win to save the series when next the Zumiee lead flappers congregate in worship at AT&T.

    I was in total shock and awe at the offence during the Cincinnati series. Tonight a shutout of the leading offensive team. WOW. (of course, the doggers have always been offensive)

  58. zumiee said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:46 pm

    Tough night for the Dodgers:

  59. eddacker said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:47 pm

    P.S. BB#9 come home, all is forgiven.

  60. snarkk said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:49 pm

    Shutout the Doghairs is a nice feat. Huddy must have had some Geritol to do what he did for nearly 7.
    Lopez way overpaid for this night’s performance.
    Pence’s oppo job late is a dinger for sure in Cincy, he roped that one.
    Nice clutch RBI by Posey early.
    Good effort by Romo.
    Super catch by Pence to rob AGon — that one’s a dinger elsewhere, too…
    All’s good when the Doghairs fall.
    Giants score first — they are 18-7…

    • Macdog said, on May 19, 2015 at 10:58 pm

      Belt had the oppo job — you’re not trying to dis him too, now? πŸ˜‰

      • snarkk said, on May 19, 2015 at 11:00 pm

        You’re right Mac, I meant Belt. Like I’ve said, when he’s mashing oppo, he’s in a good place.
        I’m half asleep, so time to go full asleep.

    Nice escape act by our vintage Hudson Terraplane. Quite the car in its day (before mine) and still a bit more than fumes in the tank. We are grateful. Park effect shut down a couple pretty potent offenses tonight ~ particularly theirs. Either Timmy or Bumgarner pulls one out and we take the series. Always wonderful to cop that first one. Are we in their heads yet? Shutouts can do that as well as ten run cloudbursts.
