New York!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 9, 2015

So we should have at least a few NY Flappers going to a game this series. Or at least threatening to.

Sydergaard/Harvey/Niese. Jeez, that is a tough line up. Well, the first 2 anyway. I feel a beat down coming on but that could just be the fumes from last night’s bbq still wafting through my senses.

Here’s a pretty good article on our new stud first baseman Chris Shaw. I had completely forgotten about the Sandoval compensatory pick so Chris Shaw, for free, sounds good to me.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/06/07/chris-shaw-poised-top-pick-mlb-draft/FkwXlaLC3WO7BOtqHHCiiK/story.html

People are tripping on what this means for Belt. It means nothing. If Belt continues to perform he’s our first baseman. If Shaw rakes like he’s supposed to, he’ll bring a shitload as a trade chip.

It’s all good unless they both suck.

It’s funny how Bickford’s ganja bust knocked down his value. I bet half the first round picks smoke weed. Maybe all of them. I could care less that Bick lights up. I care about what he does when he’s NOT baked…….

    The photo that Xoot provided was spot on image of Jeff Spicoli. I could give 2 shits about him toking some herb, but the dude needs to add some meat to his bones.

    Heading to Queens tonight, hoping to make it 2-0 on the road trip. Might be a little tougher, though, with “Thor” Syn-dah-gawd going tonight. Maybe Mets will have some trouble first time vs. Bright Eyes. No Murph this series, the latest Met to land on DL, but they should get back promising catcher D’unno, possibly by tomorrow. Hoping to see Pence back tonight.

    I’ve seen John Barr in the media a bit today and he seems happy. If John Barr is happy with the picks then I am happy.

    Duffy was chosen 568th overall in 2012. Consider the picks remaining I anticipate a homegrown starting outfield in no time.

    3rd round: #95 overall
    4th round: #124
    5th round: #155
    6th round: #185
    7th round: #215
    8th round: #245
    9th round: #275
    10th round: #305

    Tip of the cap to Brian Sabean, who’s not only managed to win 3 World Series titles in 5 years, he pulled a rabbbit out of his hat by seizing 2 first round picks in the year following the third title. Yes, I know they’re compensatory picks, but still pretty cool.

    Well played, sir.

  5. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 11:00 am

    Syndergaard’s last outing was very rough. He got worked over. He knows he’s facing the most obdurate offense in the NL, limited pop but ohh that Conga line. A careful approach should work against this guy. Don’t try to do too much too soon. Keep working those counts. Dink singles, take walks and go the other way. Seems that approach has been this team’s M.O. in most of its victories to date.

    Anybody care to project how many 3-2 counts Belt will put up tonight? Even when he ultimately (and frequently) K’s on those occasions he often wears down the starter. Now if he can remind himself not to go too long on the bullies, but go for the first decently driveable pitch.

  6. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 11:03 am

    My read on the rotational lineup for the Mets is that tonight our chances are fairly close ~ say 45-55. Tomorrow night could be the mismatch vs a very tough starter. We maybe have a 35% shot on that one. Game three looks something like 60-40 Giants. Taking one of three in NY without either Bumgarner or Cain on the mound for SF would not be a major catastrophe. It would make for a kiss your sister road-trip. Meanwhile the LaBumbos crunch and munch the Snakes.

  7. blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 11:27 am

    Syndergaard had one of the weirdest pitching lines in his last start, that I have seen in quite some time – striking out 10 Padres and giving up zero walks yet coughing up seven runs in just 4.0 innings of work.

    As Stix alluded to, the Giants have the top road offense in baseball and are 2nd vs RHP with just a 17.4 K% against them. On the surface, Thor seems to be in a bad spot; however, the park is a big advantage for him and might play down to something more neutral.

    • Macdog said, on June 9, 2015 at 11:41 am

      Cashner’s start the previous game vs. Mets was equally weird: 4.2 IP, 11 H, 6 R (5 ER), 12 Ks and 0 walks. I think it was the first time there were double-digit hits and Ks with no walks by a starter on consecutive days.

      • blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 11:47 am

        Yeah, I remember that one too (albeit, the Thor pitching line hurt more, since I had him in a few DFS games). 😦

  8. blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 11:37 am

    Jeff or Phil?

    • xoot said, on June 9, 2015 at 12:41 pm

      early Lincecum, photoshopped with blonde hair?

  9. willedav said, on June 9, 2015 at 11:53 am

    According to Henry yesterday in Chron, Giants are 14th in road ERA in the NL, only better than the Phils.
    Gotta account for park factor, esp with 2 trips already to Coors, plus launching pads in Cincy, Milwaukee and Philly.
    Hopefully Shea feels more like home to the pitching staff

    Hey, for those who follow Sac, what about pen guys there beside Strick? Anyone that would make Affeldt (or anyone else) expendable/susceptible to mysterious groin pull?.

    • blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 12:07 pm

      Willie, I would have said Steven Okert, especially because you mentioned Affeldt, and Okert is a lefty. However, he is having a hard time dealing with a hitters league (PCL) . . . Right now, he has a 4.33 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. The “good” is 33 SOs in 27 IP. I’m not an expert on how they weigh the fact he is pitching in a hitters league . . . Regardless, the Giants are very high on this kid, where I have read he has “closer” quality pitches. Very unique, since he is a lefty.

      • willedav said, on June 9, 2015 at 12:29 pm

        Imo, all the SPs (everyone not named Bum) that are only going 5-6 is gonna cause issues down the road.
        Not sure the older guys can handle the workload, and Kontos early season success might not be sustainable.
        At the point where a guy isn’t available (like other day when Romo was sick), one more live arm out there would help. Petit hasn’t exactly been what I thought he might either.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 1:30 pm

      Best stats by far among Sacto relievers is right down Broadway. Michael, i believe. Another Sabean & Co. snapup from another organization or two. Can’t recall his specifics off the top, but they are feelthy.

      • chipower9 said, on June 9, 2015 at 1:54 pm

        Yep. He is a righty. Big kid…I think he is 6’5″. In 25+ innings he has a 1.05 ERA and 0.818 WHIP. 38/6 Ks/BB.

    • chipower9 said, on June 9, 2015 at 1:50 pm

      I agree with Blade re: Okert. Yeah, he is scuffling a bit in Sacto, but is the lefty out of the bullpen probably closest to being MLB ready.

    • snarkk said, on June 9, 2015 at 12:24 pm

      What a concept, actually snapping the ball before the play clock hits zero…

  11. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 1:33 pm

    Oh, oh department. In the SB Nation draft analysis Grant Brisbee rated every single choice \by the first 23 teams, including Brisbee, as Grade A. Choice # 24th, by the LaLaLanders was a gimpy hurler which Brisbee rated dead F. Yikes!

  12. Flavor said, on June 9, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    strangely feeling like a Yan Gomes bomb could be coming tonight. Call me crazy?

    • blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 2:53 pm

      Well, don’t use him in your 3 Amigos LU, ok? The catcher gods are telling me the same thing. 🙂

    • wilcojoe said, on June 9, 2015 at 4:51 pm

      Gomes just went yard and Blade had him in our h2h against me…Wow just wow!

  13. chipower9 said, on June 9, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    Great thread, Flav. I was just telling my daughter this morning that she and I need to make a trip back to NY when the Giants are in town to play the Mets. She has been to a game there before…would be a first for me. And of course, would have to hit Finnerty’s.

    Hoping we have a number of Flappers there representing the Black and Orange/Orange and Black! Go Giants!

      Is Pence’s sore wrist from the same arm that was broken?

        Yes.

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on June 9, 2015 at 3:43 pm

        Baggs reporting that Pence still having wrist discomfort when swinging. No bueno.

    I’m supportive of police, in general; but this jackass at the Texas pool party thought he was in a TV show or something:

      Looks like Paul Blart Mall Cop. Which is a job he would be lucky to get after this stunt.

    • blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 4:26 pm

      Cpl. Eric Casebolt, the McKinney, TX police officer, the imbecile who pulled his gun on the teen age girl in a bikini (concealed weapon?), appropriately resigned.

  16. dirtnrocksnomo said, on June 9, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    Looks like the Giants went with a legacy pick in the 7th round. Jose Vizcaino Jr. Come on down!

  17. eddacker said, on June 9, 2015 at 4:02 pm

    Saying we got massive first bagger Shaw for free is a little bit off. Even though it is an extra first round choice he is rumored to be getting a signing bonus bigger than Panik, Belt, Craw-daddy and the duff man.

    combined.

    But this sure makes losing panda a little bit better

    • giants54 said, on June 9, 2015 at 4:52 pm

      Gravy. Losing Panda might be the best thing that happened.

  18. zumiee said, on June 9, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    That’ll work. The ground game gets a run.

  19. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    Hey, hey, whaddum i say earlier today (11:00 posting) about Belt drawing a full count vs Syndergaard? Gets the walk too. That’s the process. Wear this kid down with the death of a thousand cuts ~ and the occasional walk, single and even a double here and there to keep on with that conga line.

  20. alleykat69 said, on June 9, 2015 at 5:05 pm

    Bright Eyes must love the bright lights of NY,3 perfect innings with 5 K’s..

  21. wilcojoe said, on June 9, 2015 at 5:09 pm

    Flav with another ridiculous prediction coming true. See his 1:50pm post above.

    • Flavor said, on June 9, 2015 at 5:11 pm

      haha. Not bad. I should have played him against you guys. I have him on about 30% of my line ups tho so I’m good

      • blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 5:24 pm

        I have him in all my LUs and I decided to take him out of our 3 Amigos cash game, when you said that. Dammit. Hasn’t hurt me yet against you guys, but I’ll be pissed if Grandal (his replacement) does jack shit. 😦

  22. alleykat69 said, on June 9, 2015 at 5:18 pm

    Heston great piece of hitting.
    2 big knocks!!

  23. alleykat69 said, on June 9, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    Matt Duffy’ is hardly impressed with Sydergaard.
    Basically he calls him : “Sent it yard”

  24. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 5:58 pm

    Betcha there some happy folks and friends up the Hudson a bit from NYC who were at the game tonight to cheer on the Duffmeister. Rate he is going double figures look like a do.

  25. blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 5:58 pm

    Thor is supposed to be the pitching phenom with a pedigree. Heston is supposed to be a “mutt at some dog pound’s death row” who’s sentence got commuted and went on to winning the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

    Go figure.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 6:04 pm

      Some “dogs” get the better trainers and handlers. AND some dogs got more heart.

  26. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 6:03 pm

    Now the Panik attack. After visiting the White House last week the bright lights of NYC don’t faze that couple of kids. In fact they seem to thrive in the spotlight. Wondering how East Coast Sports Network will handle this one tonight. If the Evil Empire happens to win they will focus on them sure nuff.

  27. alleykat69 said, on June 9, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    Panik Attack fan club going nuts!!
    Man this kid is gonna win a batting title some year, and it might be this year.
    Duffy&Panik tied up again with 5 on their wager. Both look like double digit HR’s easily this year..

  28. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    Who the hell does Heston think he is ~ Bumgarner or something? I mean Giants pitchers don’ go two for 4 and knock in a couple runs in the process.

    • sandog said, on June 9, 2015 at 6:29 pm

      …and he’s throwing a pretty nice game as well.

    2014 Tim Lincecum
    2015 Chris Heston

  43. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 6:52 pm

    No-No Nanette. Wow! Oddsmakers might have lost their shirts tonight had they put out lines as to which pitcher was gonna make history. Betcha they’d have laid down 20-1 or something along those lines. Imagine if some crazy Giants fan had placed ten grand on the table. He’d be looking at having netted the price of a fairly decent house ~ well not in the City or anywhere near Silicon Valley.

  44. Flavor said, on June 9, 2015 at 6:53 pm

    what a bunch of pussy Met hitters. I’m gonna say that’s the first ever no hitter where the pitcher struck out the side in the 9th, all 3 with 3rd strike called.

  45. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    One thing may have been resolved tonight. We know the identities of our #1 and two starters. Now don’t go asking me who is which.

  46. blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:00 pm

    Dollars to donuts he was just as excited about his 2 hits and 2 ribbies.

  47. Carstie Clausen said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:01 pm

    If someone armed with a boobtoob tunes into ESPN tonight give us a bit of a report on Heston’s heroics. It could be amusing.

      Probably 50% bandwagon jumpers…

  52. unca_chuck said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:19 pm

    Unrea! No no for the Onega man!!! Never seen one with no walks but 3 hbps. When Heston is on he’s awesome.

    Hate to say this but Kerr has to bench Curry. . He looks lost out there.

  53. unca_chuck said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:19 pm

    Way to go Mac!!!! That’s just spectacular that you saw that.

  54. chipower9 said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    Mac – so cool that you were there tonight. First no-no in person? And I believe you were the only representative of the Flap Universe? I am still just sitting here going “wow.”

  55. djloo27 said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    Panik’s home run power is not that surprising to me.
    Duffy’s is a shock. That was not an easy pitch that he turned on…

  56. Flavor said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    MacDOg, it’s very likely that whatever write up you do tonight I’m just going to turn into tomorrow’s main thread. So….take your time, get it right. lqtm
    Seriously though, that is SO FUCKING AWESOME that you were at this game

    You have to wonder if that head injury is affecting curry.

  62. blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:49 pm

    Holy crap. Warriors getting schooled.

  63. unca_chuck said, on June 9, 2015 at 7:55 pm

    What annoys the fuck out of me is they never show fouls. Thompson geor called 2fwet off the ball. Fuck. Curry can’t get that off.

  64. mrsprtdude said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:00 pm

    Heston takes the sting off of how awful Warriors are. Had to stop watching. 37 at half?? Cav’s known for their defense? I didn’t think so. Hope we pull it out, but the worst 7 quarters of the year by a mile and it has to be in the finals???

  65. mrsprtdude said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    Amazing that Curry has been so bad for such a long stretch. Anyone remember a reigning MVP being this bad?

  66. pawliekokonuts said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    Well, I missed every pitch of Hesto’s no-no, but no apologies. I was at a senior awards night for my ACL-surgery-recovering-on-crutches daughter — actually, for her whole school, a tough urban school facing tough challenges — as tough as anywhere in America, I’ll venture. It was a heartwarming and rewarding event, seeing these kids excel and be cited for it. Lots of emotion. Lots of fun. So, then I went back to her and her mom’s house, and my daughter and I chatted about politics: labels, conservative, liberal, etc. The irony is that this diverse “liberal” environment kind of turned my daughter into a “redneck.” (Useless labels.) I reminded her how I had worked in Barry Goldwater’s 1964 campaign and went over Wm. F. Buckley’s house a year later. And look at my now! (Whatever that means.) Then my phone started blowing up with texts, which I ignored. Until I learned the no-no was “in the books,” to use the phrase of Mets announcer Howie Rose.

  67. unca_chuck said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:37 pm

    It sucks to lose but to give it away like this sucks. Curry is playing like he’d a rookie.

    • wilcojoe said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:41 pm

      The lack of experience in the NBA Playoffs cannot be understated. I said it before, that could be their downfall especially against Labron.

  68. unca_chuck said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:39 pm

    Curry is infuriating tonight.

  69. unca_chuck said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:41 pm

    3 turnovers down the stretch. But some key shots. I still think we can take this mainly because I don’t think deLly does this again. But game ; is monumental. And marl Jackson is an idiot.

  70. unca_chuck said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:42 pm

    This is their 3rd straight playoff appearance. I don’t buy that at all.

    • wilcojoe said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:45 pm

      Yeah but they never came this far. Big difference between the finals and the first and second rounds.

  71. wilcojoe said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:51 pm

    Nice effort at the end but Labron took them to school.

  72. unca_chuck said, on June 9, 2015 at 8:53 pm

    Fucking Delly from st Mary’s. Saw him for 4 years there.

    Still think we win this. Curry has to play 4 quarters. Not. 1.

    He was dogshit through 3.

    • giants54 said, on June 9, 2015 at 9:14 pm

      Too much on Curry. Where’s Thompson, Dremond Barnes?

  73. blade3colorado said, on June 9, 2015 at 9:25 pm

    Heston is the first pitcher to end a no-hitter by striking out the side since Sandy Koufax in 1965, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Nice company.

    So awesome that Mac was at the game! I listened through 8, then went to play some tennis. Verified the no hitter out on the courts.
    Pawlie–awards assembly at my school was last night and I am the emcee. Always a great, but draining evening with some emotional memorial awards etc.
    I’m obviously happy with the Cavs, but totally impressed as well. I only watched some of the first half, but I agree with the idea that slowing it down with LeBron running the point is a good call with the shape their roster is in. Still a long ways to go, but I’m glad the Cavs are showing some fight. Delly playing a key role on the Cavs is mindblowing. It felt like he played at St. Mary’s for about 7 years.

    Congrats to Heston; you all said everything so well. I’ve got nothing to add. The Warrior game was a trip. That was an amazing comeback by the Warriors, but it’s the kind of thing you see in basketball, where a team digs a huge hole, and then makes a heroic comeback, and then just falls a little short at the end. If the Warriors can win Game 4, everything will be just fine for them again.

    I could compare Duffy and Panda:
    Sandoval went 0 for 4, his last-place team lost 1-0, and he’s hitting .239, with 5 HRs.
    We all know what the Duffster did tonight, and he’s hitting .289, and has 5 HRs, for his team that is 1 game out of first place.

    Curry’s attitude / body language reminds me of Josh Hamilton after a swinging K. Not good.

    No hitter? Sheezus.
    I missed the whole game. But, hella good for our kid Heston. He just bumped back to #2 on the depth chart…

    Bochy’s 700th win as the Giants manager is a no no.

    If Pence needs more time to heal that forearm, then DL him and get it done. Keeping a guy on the active that can’t play is the usual ridiculous, wasteful move the Giants make in these scenarios. DL him, let him heal, and get a player up that can help the team…

    This team just does not stop surprising me. WTG!

    Late in the game, Delavadova tackled Curry, no foul, then the Dubs get called for the foul on the resulting scrum. Crazy…

    Sorry I’m late with this. I gotta say, when Craw made that play to end the 8th and then Heston got those three punch-outs in the 9th to finish it off, I was as excited as I’ve ever been at any sporting event, and I’ve been to just about everything, except the Super Bowl, as far as team sports go. I’m still stunned — Chris Heston!!!, not someone like MadBum or Timmy. Ok, so that wasn’t exactly the ’27 Yanks he faced, and the Mets certainly helped with all those bats left on their shoulders. But what an amazing game: That homegrown infield making every play look easy, Heston putting it where Buster wanted it just about every time, and then throwing that hook of his to finish ’em off. And to be surrounded by Giants fans (yes, there were many) as it all unfolded. I’m just so very grateful to be a fan of this team and get a chance to experience in person one of the many special moments they’ve given us over the last five years.

    This was my third no-hitter. The first two were against the Giants: Terry Mulholland in ’90 and Kevin Millwood in ’03, both at the Vet, the only no-hitters ever thrown there. So maybe I was owed one.
