All We Do Is Shut Bitches Out

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 29, 2015

Giants pitchers haven’t allowed a run at home in 37 straight innings. If that stat is correct…wow. Just WOW! Belt is finally hitting for power, our pitchers don’t allow any runs, it feels like we’re never going to lose again.

But of course, we know we’ll lose again.

Huddy couldn’t get anything going in Colorado but we all know his balls will be dancing in the dirt tonight and another W is likely on the horizon.

    …A YEAR or two ago, a comment was made here that pretty much summed-up what’s happening with this team: with a line-up of .280/.290 hitters, with 3 or 4 who could hit 15-20 homeruns, we’d have a winning team…

    • chipower9 said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:30 am

      Forget the big boppers. With our yard, I truly think a team of quality hitters who can keep the line moving is the answer. And, it also makes it tougher on the other teams’ pitchers. Hope to see you keep posting, Tom.

      BTW, do you really keep bees? I have always been facinated with the process. Had an old gent who kept bees as a next door neighbor years ago in Oklahoma City. He would bring us over fresh honey regularly. Damned good stuff! Save the pollenators!

      • tomthebeekeeper said, on May 29, 2015 at 10:57 am

        …STARTED last year with 4 hives… one was almost immediately attacked by “wax moths,” and had to be destroyed… now I have 12 hives [by splitting large hives to prevent swarms, and by capturing wild swarms]… each should produce at least 100 pounds of honey… tasty stuff… I have 2 types, the basic generic hive that collects pollen/nectar from plants within a 5 mile radius [good for allergies], and what I call “water lily honey,” which is much sweeter [great for biscuits and pancakes], but has a higher water content, and cannot legally be called honey… at $10/pound, I don’t care if it’s legal or not! GOT INTO beekeeping because I hadn’t seen a bee in the yard for a couple of years… then heard about a bee club meeting… went to the meeting, joined the club, and signed-up for their Beekeeping 101 course… most of what I’ve learned about bees, has come from youtube videos… SPEND about 30-minutes per hive every 2-weeks ~ a little more than that during early Spring, since all of the strong, mature hives try to swarm, and that required more attention…

        …AS ST. LOUIS and SF have repeatedly shown, you really don’t need homerun hitters to win… just good pitching, and everyday players that know how to hit…

      • chipower9 said, on May 29, 2015 at 11:17 am

        Very cool. I live in the Sierra foothills (Placerville) and have found a good source of pure raw honey (they call it their allergy blend). El Dorado Honey Co.

        http://eldoradohoney.com/

        I try to buy/support local (especially organic), and of course, the quality of the product drives a big part of my buying decisions.

        Where are you located? I would be willing to check out your product (I just bought a jar at our local co-op, so it will be a bit before I am ready to buy).

        If you have been following the blog for a couple of years, I hope you will be inclined to post more frequently. It is always fun to get new minds into the mix of discussing San Francisco Giants baseball. I have met some really cool folks via this blog. It is an awesome place. Thanks, Flavor!

      • tomthebeekeeper said, on May 29, 2015 at 4:59 pm

        …I’VE BEEN lurking since the Flap was first created, and usually check the comments a couple of times per day, especially during the game… I’M IN South Carolina, but I’m an ex Californian, living my pre high school days in and around Santa Clara, and after that in Sonoma County, near Santa Rosa… I have people telling me I should start selling honey via the internet, but every jar I had last year was sold almost as fast as it was filled… we’ll see what happens this year!

        …I’VE BEEN a Giants and 49ers fan for my whole life… grew up listening to Giants/49er games on the radio… now I follow them via the internet…

        …TWO tablespoons of local honey per day, will definitely help with allergies, if those allergies are due to pollen… the honey sold in grocery stores ~ and in some health food stores ~ have usually been pasteurized [cooked], and when the temp goes over 110, it kills the enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants, so it’s always best to check the back label…

    That image of Huddy’s “balls dancing in the dirt” could be sold to some porn maker, featuring a Miss Pigpen rolling around in the mud and Huddy jumping into the action.

  3. Carstie Clausen said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:28 am

    Presumably Peavy will get his shit back together after three or so appearances with the Sacville nine. If he does not get it back together he will suffer a “relapse”. If he gets called back he will likely take Machi’s bullpen role. No way Heston is going back down after bettering the league ERA leader last night. Even our current (effectual) #5 Hudson, will get some more rope before he’d be replaced by Peavy in the Rotation.

    • chipower9 said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:33 am

      You may be right. A week or so ago I would have said that Ben-Hur would be the short guy out. Now? Not so much. The kid just keeps going…I really like his stuff. Hoping he can keep it going all year long, and right into another World Series win. Yes…I am thinking big…WTF…WHY NOT?!

  4. chipower9 said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:28 am

    Yes, late on yesterday’s thread I said that I take back all the shit I talked about Belt earlier in the year. Refresh – I do NOT take any of that back…at the time, he was sucking balls, and needed to get it going, or let someone else (Posey) take first for a while. On two occasions I bagged hard on BB9, and on each occasion, he started crushing the ball. As much as I have gotten on him at times in the past, I truly do think he can (and will) turn into a damned fine first baseman. The glove has always been there…he just needs to find consistency at the plate (isn’t that always the case for a ML hitter)…

    Great win last night. I was telling Gail that I fully expected that game to be a 1-0 pitching duel, and it was until Belt hit that grand opposite field shot. And then our boys found their hitting shoes and the rout was on. Miller has been absolutely nasty this year, so for the team even scratch out a run was great. And then once we got into their bullpen, all bets were off.

    It was cool for Twin to stop in yesterday after I had connected with him. Wishing you and Merna all the best, always, Twin.

    Half game back of la bumbinos. They start a set against the Redbirds tonight. Go Cards, Go Giants!

    Good read on our young Flying Squirrel, Kyle Crick. One thing that you never want to have happen as a hurler, is to have your name mentioned in association with Jonathan Sanchez. Now, that may not be fair to Sanchez, as he did have some huge wins for us during the 2010 season, and his no-no will always be a fond rememberance, but overall, the dude always had a hell of a time finding the strike zone.

    Belt, Pence and Crawford with SLG % in the .500s, Blanco next with a .454

    Belt has an OPS over .900 and five others are in the .800s

    All of the current starting eight have an AVG of ..290 or above.

    May has been a very good month for the lads in orange and black (20-7 and counting).

    To add to the Clown’s post:

    NL rankings for our boys:

    AVG: 1
    OBP: 2
    SLG: 4
    OPS: 2
    Hits: 1
    2B: 4
    3B: 1

      What I like about this is the pitch zone, that shows if it is a strike or not, loved that before the umpires threw shit fits over it here in the states.

    The invisible man, Yasiel Puig . . . http://www.latimes.com/sports/dodgers/la-sp-dodgers-puig-plaschke-20150529-column.html#page=1

    • zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 4:31 pm

      The column raises an interesting point about Puig fitting in when he comes back. Although, I don’t totally agree with the slant of the article, that the Dodgers have been “better” without him so far. We watched the Giants shut-out the Dodgers three games in a row. Plus the Dodgers get further tested in St. Louis this weekend.

  14. zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    Speaking of Puig, no one can ice-skate around secondbase like him.

    • blade3colorado said, on May 29, 2015 at 4:54 pm

      Man, is he fast.

  15. Flavor said, on May 29, 2015 at 4:38 pm

    I guarantee you the Dodger players are glad Puig isn’t rehabbing and hanging out in the dugout during the games. Their detest for him was obvious last year. The dude is a jackass and frankly, as I’ve believed since day 1, an overrated jackass…..

    • zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 4:44 pm

      The trading of Uribe and the loss of Ryu for the season could be a big thing for Puig. Those were the few cohorts he had amongst the Dodgers. I agree that all the others are probably pretty tired of his act.

      • Flavor said, on May 29, 2015 at 5:11 pm

        i remember one of your puig gif’s and Ryu seemed to be seriously fucking with him. Maybe they were best buds and that was just their relationship. Are you sure they were close? I wouldn’t want a friend like that if they are actually buds. Do you remember that gif? Looked like he was truly fucking with him because he didn’t like him to me.

      • zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 5:15 pm

        It’s an odd relationship, definitely. Ryu messes with Puig, but Puig keeps coming back to stand by him in the dugout.

  16. xoot said, on May 29, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Puig showed a bit more maturity early this year, taking high tight pitches from MadBum without any stupid reaction, etc. His cultural adjustment may be progressing–who knows. I have no idea whether he’s coachable. I think his talent is extraordinary. I’d guess a lot of teams would be interested if the bums looked into a trade.

    • Flavor said, on May 29, 2015 at 4:58 pm

      and I’m not doubting his physical tools which are upper echelon. I just think he’s a dumbfuck who cares more about individual PLAYS he makes and is less concerned with winning or how the team plays together. And he doesn’t strike me as a guy who is going to get more mature as he gets older. He’s not going to *see the light*. If it turns out I’m wrong feel free to toss this is my face later.

  17. Flavor said, on May 29, 2015 at 5:01 pm

    Justin Bour just cracked a 3 run monster off Harvey who was humming along. He was a Rule 5 minor league pick up by the Marlins and he’s slowly but surely putting the DL ridden Morse out of a gig…..

  18. blade3colorado said, on May 29, 2015 at 5:11 pm

    ” I think his talent is extraordinary.” I agree. The fact that his talent hasn’t fully developed yet isn’t a concern in my mind, as he only has limited experience in the MLB. Puig saw only 3.57 pitches per plate appearance, a low number by today’s standards. Basically, Puig swings at the first pitch way too often. Whereas the rest of the league swung at the first pitch only 27 percent of the time, Puig swung at the first pitch 43 percent of the time. Ordinarily, this isn’t the best plan when going to the plate. However, Puig is special . . . Puig hit .551 with a 1.072 slugging percentage when he swung at the first pitch in 2013. Per Baseball-Reference.com, his 1.642 OPS when swinging at the first pitch was the best in the league.

    More recently, Yasiel Puig hit .273/.355/.416 with 27 doubles, seven home runs, 34 RBI, and 46 walks in his last 418 at-bats. If those numbers have you convinced that Puig is a player the Dodgers could do without, I don’t buy it. In fact, how about checking on Bryce Harper last season? I don’t have any numbers off the top of my head for Harper, but after years of being a punk and a can’t miss prospect that essentially did nothing with his talent . . . Well, this year – they are calling him the best baseball player in MLB. In short, I would wait awhile on Puig before judging him long term (IMO).

    • Flavor said, on May 29, 2015 at 5:13 pm

      I’m not judging him long term, I’m predicting that his punk-ass will never fulfill the promise. It’s quite possible I’ll be wrong.
      BTW, sorry I couldn’t h2h with you, was real busy this afternoon. Got about 15 tournies going but didn’t get to check my ph to see your invite till it was too late.

      • blade3colorado said, on May 29, 2015 at 5:27 pm

        No worries Flav . . . By the by, I hadn’t checked on my DFS games, so thanks regarding the update on Harvey (whom I faded in all my tourneys and cash games). I know one of my H2Hs is against a dude who splurged on Harvey. Me? I thought he was too expensive.

  19. zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 5:16 pm

  20. zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 5:23 pm

    I’m not sure what bugs me about Bob Costas on play-by-play, but there’s just something too clinical about the way he does it. Like he’s a narrator for a 1970s educational science film or something.

  24. zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    Lackey’s jawing at the umpire. He’s pretty ticked off. Didn’t cost a run, but cost him about 6 more pitches on his pitch-count.

  25. Flavor said, on May 29, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    Art Dealers gettin’ back to their *get shut out* ways……Puig better get that hammy going soon. Article asked a good question: just where IS Puig? He’s got a lil’ hammy problem, nothing season ending. The only good thing from this hammy problem: it might be preventing him from lead footing it in his sports car.

    Hamstring, huge muscle, is pretty tricky injury. Ask Pagan, or Adrianza.

    Puig, along with Harper and Hanley imo, makes up triumvirate of most annoying players in game today.

    But, he is supremely talented, and was so from minute he stepped in the box as ml player.

    Season avgs.: .304/.391/.501 OPS+ 149. 4.9 and 5.3 WAR in two full seasons.
    He’s done plenty enough damage vs. SF already. Bum wasn’t mad because he got singles…

    But for highlight GIFs, check out the ones vs. Cards in last year playoffs, when they struck him out repeatedly.
    I could watch those all day.

    More on our pitchers’ shutouts:
    I heard this on the Mets’ broadcast tonight: [hope I get this right]: the Giants have nine shutouts at home in one month. No team, or at least no Giants team, has done this for 99 years, since 1916, in the Polo Grounds. 1916. The year Josephine Kocak was born. She’s still with us; lives on her own. [well, the Mets announcers didn’t say that last part]

    Watching the Braves hit another dribbler to the IF, you can see why they are 10th in league in runs scored and lower than that for slugging and OPS. Freeman has 5 HRs, Markakis the clean up hitter 0.

    They have kids in IF and OF, couple ex-Padres, Chris Johnson at 3b, and no more KImbrel.
    Pen blew up last night, a couple games ago vs. LA gave up 3 HRs in 1 inning of what had been a tie game.

      people be that dumb. Roll with the champeens, Steph.

        Curry can stay for the entire home stand before the finals begin…

    Counting tonight (after 7) Braves have scored 12 runs in last 8 games; 6 runs in 3 in. LA, 1 so far in SF.

    That is too bad about NY Rangers. I’m sure league was looking forward to Original 6 match up for the Cup, which could get completely blown up by Anaheim.

    The only ice I get near is the one cube basking in my Makers for 30 seconds before I take it out…

    From Twitter:

    Bill Plunkett:
    AJ Ellis said HP ump Mike Winters told him “Your presentation wasn’t good” on ball/strike calls. Set Ellis off, led to ejection

    Jake Garber ‏@JgarberWDE 14m14 minutes ago
    I mean he’s right. AJ sucks at framing

    Blue Man ‏@tqt008 13m13 minutes ago
    lol mike winters : truth tella

    Jim Whitney ‏@JimmyInSEA 12m12 minutes ago
    Is there anything AJ ellis isn’t friggin terrible at? I guess he’s good at being a useless baseball player

    Jason Barquero ‏@jaybarquero 12m12 minutes ago
    I wish Winters would’ve told him, “btw, you’re a shitty hitter too!” #lmao

    Man, Strickland was a hot knife through butter there.

    • Bozo said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:21 pm

      Agreed. I thought he looked very good.

      • zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:22 pm

        Quick rise in status. Pitching in the 8th, with a 2-1 lead. That’s Prime Time stuff.

  49. Bozo said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:25 pm

    That works.WTG Buster.

    Craw has just been an RBI machine. Love it.

  51. Macdog said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:27 pm

    More 8th-inning runs!

  52. djloo27 said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:34 pm

    I think the greatest bases loaded hitter of all time was Pat Tabler…

  53. alleykat69 said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:43 pm

    So Kruk stfu about Freeman bunting for a hit, he made you look bad with that blast to dead center..

  54. djloo27 said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:44 pm

    Freeman swings the bat like an axe.
    Reminds me of Mike Easler…

    • Macdog said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:51 pm

      Easler, nice, didn’t he have some assassin-like nickname?

  55. alleykat69 said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:48 pm

    Pat Tabler, nice call Loo

    • djloo27 said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:51 pm

      Does it sound right, Kat?

      • alleykat69 said, on May 29, 2015 at 10:08 pm

        Sounds very right Loo!!
        Tabler had a 3 year stretch1983-1985)with the base loaded where no pitcher could get him out.
        He was Mr Clutch, 22Abs in 1983 25rbi’s .579 avg, next year .567 avg,1985 6for7 base loaded , the guy was just uncanny with the bags full

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 29, 2015 at 10:21 pm

        I don’t recall him, at all.

    • Paul Sorensen said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:51 pm

      And nice call on Easler, the Hit Man. Saw him at Fenway a lot back in the day.

  56. zumiee said, on May 29, 2015 at 9:52 pm
