Row-Away Day in Denver

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 24, 2015

I’m not gonna skewer Blanco for that bone headed play. Those guys had been at the park for 14 hours, one of them was bound to break down mentally over something stupid at some point.

Radar looks not so good. There’s definitely weather in the area around game time. Giving Denver a baseball team was the dumbest thing baseball ever did. Debatable, but still….

Got PK’s vm about the wordpress thing being a possible malware attack. It’s not that, these renewal dues are the same every year. It’s still saying on my admin page that I still own, by the way. I also owe for the custom design but as I said yesterday, there’s no way I’m paying for that till the domain issue gets resolved.

    Yesterday, I was in Moab doing the Top of the Mountain Trail with a buddy of mine. Not certain this photo will appear here (or will appear as a link) showing me at the top after 4Wheelin’ up . . .

    https://scontent-dfw1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xta1/v/t34.0-12/11289689_10152857094346752_1010480581_n.jpg?oh=5391db53940f892e8131d86272d611fd&oe=55642D47

    Anyway, back on topic . . . I wrote Wilcojoe about the tourney he was in the running to win. Apparently, the Rockies game being played out dropped him in the standings (albeit, he still did a great job). I wrote him this email afterwards . . .

    “Joe,

    Way to go. Consistency is the key. Your “horse” will come in eventually. Get this Joe – I have no idea how they played that second game. We drove back yesterday from Moab and it was fucking snowing at the Eisenhower Tower (summit area) on highway 70. My windshield wipers did not work as well. I had to get out of the car and wipe off the ice and snow at one point and then put the defroster on full blast. Fast forward to the rest of the trip to Denver and it rained all the way. AGAIN, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THAT FRICKIN’ GAME WAS PLAYED YESTERDAY, AS IT RAINED HARD ALL THE WAY UP TO GAME TIME AND BEYOND. Only located 8 miles from Coors. I cracked up when you said “Please do a rain dance so this game can end now in a postponement.”

    Does Strickland get to stay through today’s game or not?
    Stil dunno what SF would do with him, i.e., where he would fit in or who he would displace.

  3. djloo27 said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:03 am

    “Row-Away Day” is quite a little gem there, Flav.
    What if you are unable to negotiate a peaceful settlement with the WordPress terrorists?
    Do we need an exit strategy?

  4. zumiee said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:07 am

    Three Giants need to come down with phantom injuries: Affeldt, Machi, and McFizzle.
    McG’s might be an actual injury. Watching him limp a little as he walked away from the plate after his botched slide made me think that, whenever his time with the Giants is done, we’ll probably be hearing how he played his whole time for the Giants with a sore knee. The guy has almost no power anymore, and has to rely on trying to plunk it past the infield.
    Okert couldn’t be worse than Affeldt at this point. And Strickland’s better than Machi at this point.

    • djloo27 said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:15 am

      I like that idea, Zum. I guess you would bring up Duvall as well…

      • giants54 said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:33 am

        Duvall is Brett Pill, Jr.

      • giants54 said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:36 am

        And just as bad or worse 3b than mcstiff.

    • willedav said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:19 am

      Don’t forget Peavy could be back in a week so that’s likely a Machi/Kontos decision. Adding Strick in means someone else has to go too or get the phantom injury.

      Affledt had some bad luck last night in second game—ground ball on IF with runner on 1b wound up advancing the guy and then another ground ball just got by Panik to score the run. I don’t think he gets the zito treatment, yet. Lopez just isn’t used very much more than a batter or two. Could Okert be a late inning guy that can get RH hitters out too?

  5. Carstie Clausen said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:17 am

    Back to their winning ways today? Could happen, if they play.

    The loss last night was kinda expected by many of us, i suspect. Dreary conditions with rain, thunder and generalized misery compounded in the delays. Tired warriors on the road and in a bad venue facing a relatively unknown pitcher and with a non-rotation starter up against a home team.

    • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:26 am

      Don’t despair . . . Weather will be fine today (looking out my window). Also, regarding Bettis – He is the worst rated pitcher in fantasy on today’s slate, i.e., “Bettis owns a 6.72 ERA during his career and this game is being played at Coors Field. He offers modest strikeout ability (6.77 K/9 between AAA and MLB this season) and this Giants team owns MLB’s 7th best wOBA against right-handed pitching this season (.324 team wOBA). Bettis can and should be safely be avoided in all formats.”

      Giants win a shootout, since Hudson will probably get lit up too . . . Just not as bad. Fan Duel says this, “He’s pitched admirably against the Rockies in both previous meetings this season, however, he owns a 6.80 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in nine career starts at Coors Field and his 4.35 K/9 is a fantasy liability.”

      • djloo27 said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:38 am

        Sounds like handicappers sorting through the PPs analyzing a horse race.
        Then they run it…

      • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:43 am

        Excellent analogy Loo. Here is a link to the “opinion piece” I took the Giants/Sherpa game from (3 pages in length for all MLB games today). It makes your head “swim” on how much DFS info is available online, including CBS, ESPN, Yahoo, and the one below (Rotogrinders):

  6. Carstie Clausen said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:21 am

    On a positive note, Giants are now #7 in runs scored ~ quite a jump from 14th immediately before the Cincinnati series and several double-digit explosions there and in the Box of Rox. In game One Giants featured no fewer than FIVE CONSECUTIVE .300 hitters. That constitutes one helluva conga line.

    • pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 12:28 pm

      Box of Rox. Good one.

  7. Lurker John said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:54 am

    Great pic Blade!

    • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 10:51 am

      Thank you . . . I was scared shitless getting that close.

  8. alleykat69 said, on May 24, 2015 at 10:12 am

    Update..Mr.Magoo.. 35 games 110AB’s 7 runs scored.
    Hunter Pence..8 games 31AB’s 8 runs scored.

  9. willedav said, on May 24, 2015 at 10:15 am

    Saw this in book review section of Sunday Chron: appearing twice this week (SF and Alameda) Bengie Molina along with Joan Ryan, for the book entitled, “Molina.”
    Bengie often felt slighted by Giants mgmt. before finally being the shown the door only to wind up facing Posey and SF with Texas in 2010 WS. Should be interesting to see what he has to say.
    Ryan, if I remember right, wrote a book about what happens to girl gymnasts (short and long term effects) during intense training by Karolyis of the world.

    • willedav said, on May 24, 2015 at 10:40 am

      According to Amazon, this book is about Bengie’s parents and how they helped the 3 brothers get from PR to the big leagues. Endorsed by LaRussa and Ron Darling on the site fwiw, among others.

    • alleykat69 said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:02 am

      Willie..To me, Posey should have felt like he was the guy being slighted.
      1st… He hardly played the month they called him up, then Boch kept his Vet mentality regarding Molina’s playing time for HALF the 2010 season .
      2nd..Molina whined& bitched about finally losing playing time to the superior Posey,which forced the trade for obviously the better, as 3 in 5 proved…

      • willedav said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:30 am

        I remember that when Posey first came up. Still, Lincecum gave him a lot of credit for success in early years.
        Doubt I’d ever read the book.

  10. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:11 am

    Casey McGehee.
    Just DFA’d…

    • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:14 am

      You’re shitting me? Wow! Impressed that the Giants had the stones to get rid of him.

      • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:18 am

        Looks like last night’s messed up slide was the last straw.
        Marty Lurie had just gotten through going through all the categories that Duffy is in the top 10 of NL rookies, then all of a sudden, dropped the DFA announcement from the Giants.
        Strickland stays up for now…

      • wilcojoe said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:12 pm

        Great news about McDeePee and I agree with Blade. I didn’t think they had the balls to cut him, at least not before the all-star break…Snarkk, great to see you posting during the day. Seems like we only get to hear from you during the late late night run.

    • alleykat69 said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:19 am

      The Matt Duffy era begins!!!

    • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:39 am

      snarkk said, on May 23, 2015 at 10:38 pm (Edit)

      McDP’s slide in the 5th — saw the highlight — the dude can’t keep his foot on the ground, else he’d be safe as his foot clearly beat the throw, plus he inexplicably slowed down from his snail pace speed for some reason about 15 feet from home. Duffy easily scores there. I’m missing why this dude is on the 25 other than he has a contract, and Bochy realizes he’s a vet. I’m hoping he comes through big time at some point…

    • Carstie Clausen said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:23 pm

      Most all of us saw it coming. Some saw it sooner, some later along in the season. Hopefully, he will agree to go to Sactown and will rediscover his inner hitter in the PCL. Might be a nice addition later in the season.

  11. djloo27 said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:20 am

    Met announcers already talking him up…

  12. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:22 am

    Duffy just annnounced as everyday 3bman…

  13. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:25 am

    I give Sabes credit for having the “stones”, as blade said, for cutting losses with a two month disaster McDP.
    On the other hand, what a Sabean blunder. At least it didn’t cost much– $4.5 million? McDP just might be the worst Sabes acqusition ever. Outgarkos Garko. I look at it this way, Gyros get Duffy for $5 million total this year. If Duffman keeps up his production, that’ll be just fine…
    Wonder if Evans being GM now made this decision go faster?…

  14. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:30 am

    Sheezus, Marty Lurie making jokes about McDP being a “slug” from Santa Cruz. Ouch, if Marty jokes about you, you know it’s rough…

  15. alleykat69 said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:34 am

    So does this mean McDP will not be able to defend his DP title?

    • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:36 am

      They want him to go to the River Cats, unless somebody picks him up off the slug, uh, scrap heap. He can continue to hit DPs wherever he is. With $4.5 million in his pocket for this year, maybe another Japanese visit is in order…

      • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:41 am

        By the by, I have to agree with giants54’s comment about Duvall. He is at most, a roster filler. Giants trying a last gasp shot at possibly getting him up to the big club, but only with one BIG IF – he has to learn how to play 3rd base and my understanding is that he is worse then McGiggles on a good day. No way, no how does he go to 1st base – his natural position – where he is also no great shakes, due to Belt and/or Posey being there into perpetuity.

  16. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:42 am

    Tomorrow Evans has to decide what to do with Ishi. He comes off rehab and DL.
    Either he gets DFA’d too, or somebody else has to get tossed off the 40 man to make room…

    • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:48 am

      I doubt that he gets DFA’d . . . Shit snarkk, they are having his bobblehead day on Tuesday.

      “Oh Ish, you’ll have to buy a game ticket to get that free bobblehead.”

      Uhh, I don’t think so . . . 🙂

      • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:56 am

        If they do DFA him, I’ll be really impressed by Evans … 😉

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on May 24, 2015 at 12:21 pm

        I can see a role for Ishikawa as a left handed stick off the bench. As others have mentioned I thought he would be exchanged for Machi but it’s hard to see where he fits now that they’re planning to carry 13 pitchers. If and when Peavy and Cain return they’ll have some hard choices. Maybe an early trade in the works? Heston is probably at the top of his value right now but I don’t see them moving him.

      • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 12:25 pm

        I think they can DFA him at low risk of him being picked up by somebody else. If he is, hey, that pennant winning HR will be a great memory. Too much of a logjam at 1b, and IMO he’s not that great of a hitter to take up the #25 spot for an occasional PH turn…

  17. dirtnrocksnomo said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:51 am

    Ganbare McDP-san!

  18. Macdog said, on May 24, 2015 at 11:56 am

    Casey is out? Who says there is no joy in Mudville.

    • pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 12:32 pm

      good one! and he was brilliant compared to Uggla, well not brilliant…

  19. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 12:30 pm

    From that blowout Dubs win last night at Houston. Bogut and Ezeli went for a combined center position 22 points and 18 rebounds in 39 minutes — 10-of-13 shooting from the floor…

  20. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 12:43 pm

    Affeldt should have one of his patented accidents (a slight one) and go on the DL (the Giants-style wink wink DL) for a while, then bring up a lefty from Sac to fill in while Jeremy fixes whatever it is that’s going on with him…

    • pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 12:49 pm

      I agree, but you know he will have a long leash, given his great service.

      • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 12:59 pm

        Hey Pawlie, heard on KNBR today there was/is a big weekend going on in Cooperstown with an old timers game, etc. If it’s good Spring weather, sounds like a great weekend destination, if you can handle the crowds, or to sell some books…

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:45 pm

        Missed it. Been traveling too much. But there will be a trophy weekend, I believe, or was this it? I sold a lot of books like that two years ago; lots of Giants fans.

  21. djloo27 said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    40 man roster:

    I didn’t know they had a guy named Joan. I bet that would be an ML first…

  22. Flavor said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    I thought my call of Casey last night as *Aubrey Huff minus the thong and post 2010* was a gold call that got no love at all…..

    • sandog said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:12 pm

      I was still holding out hope he was better than that, though I was amused by the comparison.
      McDFA’d. Wow. Well. we don’t have Casey to kick around anymore. I will say having an all home-grown catcher and infield is damn impressive.

    • Macdog said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:14 pm

      I’m with Loo, I really like “Row-Away Day.”

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:27 pm

        I dunno. Maybe he was Dan Uggla WITH a thong, a secret one.

    Designated for Assignment

    Since it is usually the precursor for a player being placed on outright waivers, let’s discuss being designated for assignment. A player that is designated for assignment is removed from his club’s 40-man roster and, within the next 10 days, traded, released or, if he clears outright waivers, assigned to the minor leagues. A club may not designate a player for assignment if the corresponding transaction is to recall a player on optional assignment. Here are the options a club has in some more detail:

    Trade: A club interested in acquiring a player who has been designated for assignment may try to work out a trade before the player is placed on waivers, eliminating the possibility he might be claimed by a club with a higher waiver claim priority. Players with “10 and 5 rights” may not be traded without their consent.

    Release: The player then becomes a free agent. He may sign with any club, including the team that released him.

    Waivers: A club wishing to send a player designated for assignment to the minor leagues must first place him on irrevocable outright waivers, making him available to the other 29 clubs in reverse order of won-lost record.

    In other words, a club DFA’s a player to give themselves some options. The biggest benefit to a team when a player is DFA’d, the club gets to fill his 40 man roster slot while not committing yet to a formal course of action with the player. Note that of the ten day period, the player must be placed on waivers before seven days have passed if the team wishes to go that route.

    • pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:28 pm

      Speaking personally, maybe divorce should have similar DFA options.

      • sandog said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:30 pm

        Reminds me of when they said on Seinfeld that being separated means you’re engaged to be divorced!

  24. Macdog said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:12 pm

    Another delay at Coors. Flav is absolutely right — playing Major League Baseball in Denver is just flat-out dumb. Twenty-plus years as a franchise, and Rockies have never won a division title. As Blade has pointed out before, given the toll playing at high altitude takes on ballplayers, especially pitchers, it’s unlikely Rockies will ever finish any better than second. Maybe move ’em to Montreal if that city ever builds a new park.

  25. pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:26 pm

    Stupid ESPN. Lead story on the Royals as baseball’s “hottest team.” Really? We just won eight in a row. Crickets. Who (whom) do we gotta f*ck around here to get some respect?

    • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 2:07 pm

      Since April 21 or some such, Giants have best record in MLB, or NL. ESPN is a lost cause. This morning on the basketball radio show for NBA, they spent an hour talking about LeBron. After Curry almost singlehandedly destroyed Houston last night…

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 7:48 pm

        we had best in MLB from that date but the two losses dampened that a bit… but yeah. Last night on cbssportsradio, jerk was talking about Tom Brady maybe more than Steph Curry

  26. pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:29 pm

    Just call the game now and head to the airport.

  27. zumiee said, on May 24, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    Beautiful game going on at Dodgers Stadium. Pads over Dodgers 9-0 in the 3rd inning. Frias, hot-shot young pitcher, getting lit up. 9 earned runs to jack up his ERA. The league starts to get a book on a player. The game just isn’t that easy.
    The Pads are finding some pride today. Maybe they’re getting tired of being owned by the Dodgers.

  28. Flavor said, on May 24, 2015 at 2:12 pm

    So I’m in Reno hanging out with people. It’s not really a gambling trip but I did play some poker last night. I almost never bet on baseball but I did today because my angle is that both the Giants and the Rockies are going to tired as fuck from hanging around the ballpark all weekend and want to just get the fuck out of here. So, I thought the total on 10 is high and the 5.5 for 5 innings was also high. So I took the under on both of those and because I think we beat them handily I took the Giants -2.5 for +225. We’ll see if these angles work out!

  29. blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 2:18 pm

    Denver Post poll showing how much fans are fed up with Tulo . . .

    Total Votes = 1686
    Yes, the Rockies need pitching to win games.

    Just read Baggs write up on the DFA. Pretty classy move by Casey to take Duffy aside after he got the news. Now don’t let the door hit you in the ass…

  31. vogelsheiner said, on May 24, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    McGehee up there with Tejada, a 1 yr 5m drop in the bucket. And incredibly, he lasted till Sept.

  34. Flavor said, on May 24, 2015 at 2:49 pm

    Is there really a market for Tulo? I guess there is but I wouldn’t take him for free. He’s 31 on October and really looks like he’s lost a step this year. Injury prone label only going to get more real and he’s owed 100 million after this season. I don’t get why anyone would want this guy unless they don’t care about the dough

    • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 3:07 pm

      My take as well. Tulo is NO LONGER at his peak . . . Slow descent going forward in my opinion. Equally important, Sherpas are in delusion if they think anyone will pay their price – assume his salary and 3 high end prospects (2 of them pitchers); or assume his salary and 2 high end prospects and front line pitcher. HAHAHAHA! Wont happen and the reality is that the Mets, Astros and possibly Yankees are the only buyers out there that I can see even remotely interested.

      Oh yeah, Cargo is finished as well. Put a fork in him . . .

  35. willedav said, on May 24, 2015 at 3:07 pm

    Loo, that Gregorio guy is listed at 6-7 and 180 lbs. Yo, flaco!

    I know Affeldt has not been good, but my theory is that relief guys especially only have so many effective innings in them. Kontos is off to good start, but imo this will not last and soon he will be giving up runs every time he comes in. And I’d bet Affeldt straightens things out soon enough with some more work.
    I doubt Bochy does anything more (as in bring up Okert), esp with Strick now up, to the pen anytime soon.

  36. xoot said, on May 24, 2015 at 3:11 pm

    my kid says the game’s set to start at 3.20 now. I heard a lot of Lurie’s show today running errands in the car. Didn’t hear the SC Slug comment. Stupid conflation. McG didn’t go to college in Santa Cruz. When it first opened, UCSC was openly hostile to competitive sorts. The gym was designed to be too small to host official basketball games. Closest thing we had to a ballpark was a big free form field with a lumpy diamond and backstop in the corner. I once hit a bomb so far over a LF’s head he didn’t recognize me when he picked me up hitchiking after the game. His Frank Zappa hair gave him away. Many years later the school started giving out grades and it welcomed the NCAA. Then the Banana Slug thing arose.

    One thing I did hear on Lurie’s show today. Bryce Harper has never faced a mlb pitcher younger than he is.

  37. wilcojoe said, on May 24, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    I think Flav is right. So far these guys are playing like they have a hot date.

    • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 3:57 pm

      Bum is yawning, so he definitely wants to get the heck out of Dodge.

  38. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 3:39 pm

    Charlie Culberson, the 2nd base dude that the Giants traded to the Rox for Scutaro, is on the 60 day DL for the Rockies with a lower back problem. Didn’t do/play a lot last year, and now that Descalso is with the team, he may not be in the Rockies plans. Now, that was a pretty good trade by Sabes back in 2012…

    At first, I thought I’d feel a little sorry for McDP. Then, KNBR said he has enough career service time to refuse to report to AAA and still collect all his contracted salary this season. So, after hearing that, I figure I don’t have enough sorry to waste any on McDP…

    Hit sleeve? What’s next? Another strikeout triple?

    The Giants batters today so far:

    Righetti went out to talk to Hudson and said: “Feel free to get somebody out.”

      Nice… 😉

    There goes the 5-inning under. Way to go, Huddy.

    Where’s the rain when you really need it?

    Hard enough not knowing when any of these games were gonna start,now that I know in this one I would rather forget..

  46. snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 5:11 pm

    Anybody surprised by Huddy getting clocked in this ballpark?
    The guy has NEVER won in Denver, even when he was really good…

    • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 5:18 pm

      Knew it was going to happen. Only surprise is that Bettis didn’t get clocked. Piece of shit pitcher looks like Cy Young against the Giants.

      • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 5:24 pm

        I think the Giants are halfway to the airport right now…

      • blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 5:31 pm

        Yep . . . and I am thinking about the rest of my evening.

    So now that McGiggles is gone, my vote for the next short straw is Arias.

    • snarkk said, on May 24, 2015 at 5:13 pm

      Boy, McDP gone, and they’re getting smoked. Maybe he was the little pebble underneath that held together the foundation, and now it will all come crashing down. Who knew? Quick, get him back!!!…

  48. blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    One measly single up until that one.

  49. blade3colorado said, on May 24, 2015 at 6:03 pm

    For shit and giggles, I would love to see Belt belt it.

    That’s baseball where anything can happen. It did as it frequently does in the Box of Rox. Likely the team was simply frazzled and not really on their game. Once Huddy imploded, all bets were off ~ except Bettis. The on and off rain, drizzle, thunder and even threats of a snowstorm ~ or shower, anyway, advantaged the hometeam bigtime. On to the Brewskis.

    NEVER ever bet baseball.

    xoot’s 3:11 has an epic, classic line straight out of fiction: “I once hit a bomb so far over a LF’s head he didn’t recognize me when he picked me up hitchiking after the game.”

  53. alleykat69 said, on May 24, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    Only a 1 game blowout.
    Just pray it’s not a start of “The curse of the McGiggles”

  54. pawliekokonuts said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    Seems like we played 13 games this weekend. A split equals a win.

    • alleykat69 said, on May 24, 2015 at 9:36 pm

      Totally Agree Pawlie,
      7+ hours of Rain delays=2 more games.Nobody ever knew when a game was ever going to start or delay again.
      Really wearing on fans as much as players!Rox’s have had multiple games cancelled already this season.
      WTF they never domed this joint in snow/Rain 5,280ft of crazy ass weather is beyond me…
