A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Game Time Thread and the Offer of a Lifetime

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 3, 2015

A new bauble arrived via the pony at Casa de Flavor’s this afternoon.



That’s right. An autographed Candy Maldonado. Behind it sits an unautographed giraffe that my daughter played with when she was young. Belt won’t be signing that unless he dines with me in an upcoming evening. Even then…..

To the particulars: The picture cost me $3.05. But shipping was $3.20. This additional fee has soiled the score so I’ve decided to re-list the item on a site more telling of it’s hidden value. Starting tomorrow, you can find this rare collectible listed at https://www.hugginsandscott.com/

I am told they do skillful work with the rarest of baseball finds.

List price will be $1,400. Relax, for you guys I’ll be offering a today in-game price of $1,375. That’s a $25 Flap discount, do not sneeze at that. This offer closes at games end. No exceptions or B/O’s will be considered. At least, at the time this thread went to print……

How did I come up with the list price? Allow me to disclose the true value. For starters, the edges of the photo are impeccable. You could literally slice Gouda with this. And the ink from the pen is so shiny my eyes almost burn if I look at it too long. There are unwritten reports that he once declared this his “best signature ever”. His (and my) biceps are positively peaking. And do I even have to note the classic “Candy smile” that we all secretly admired back in the day? Finally, who among us could ever forget Candy flying in from the right side of the tv screen to protect the good name of Will the Thrill?

One hundred dollars for each letter signed. That’s a sexy, smooth 14 hundo, baby. And I’ll throw in the freaking giraffe just so your significant other doesn’t raise her brow at you…….

So who’s in for the in-game deal of $1,375?

text: “buy it now” or “I gotta have that shit” to my cell……..

Leave questions in the comment section below if you have any but I can’t believe you aren’t working with enough info to buy this bad boy like 10 seconds ago…….

    This had got to have been the most disgusting defeat of the entire season. Bullpen needs to be addressed ASAP. Note where Bochy did NOT trust Affeldt to enter a close game. He’s crispy browned on both sides. Vogelsong may not be cut out to be a reliever ~ at least in late innings. Step number first is to bring up Josh Osich to replace one of those two. Waiver wire trade may also be necessary. Osich should get the call tomorrow. On the other side of the ticket Petit was excellent and deserved a W. Someone mentioned that Cain basically ran outta gas. He did not need the confidence-building pat on the back Bochy gave him by keeping him after that 3-run shot by Johnson. The double he gave up right afterwards was far more on Bochy than on Kontos who surrendered that single single in an otherwise decent inning of work.

    That’s why I said Friday’s game was bigger than it looked. Just like that you’re 1-3 on the trip, your ace lost one and you just choked away a 6-run lead in ATL. And the Dodgers are hot again. From August on, they’re all big. It’ll be the end of September before you can blink. Un-fucking-believable.

    What are we gonna do with this BP?
    Strickland’s the only guy under 30 ((27)down there. Kontos has been great and he’s 30,after that you have the proven vets with the rings and lots of mileage&age Romo,Affeldt,Lopez there not going anywhere,Casilla sure of liked to upgrade, but we’re stuck with him now and his loss of velocity.Petit& and the aging Vogs(38)
    Sure like them to bring back both Oshich& Broadway but does anybody think Vogs are anyone else will move on prior to the longtime till the call ups?

      I don’t have clue what to do other than keep the positive ..well, positive … And that positive is our offense .. So get rid of that fuckin Airhead piece of shit and give this kid Tomlinson a shot replacing Panik at 2nd for a couple of week .. Could be anothe diamond in the ruff like the Duffster .,. The kid was 367th draft pick overall …he’s gotta be good!

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    G’night. Terrible loss. I don’t wanna talk about it.

      I hear you … I’m gonna see I can find a way to get my forehead tight … Just to forget.

    safe travels, Snarkk. Still owe you the bat. It’s in my office at work now and every single person who comes in picks it up. Well, almost. But it’s run it’s course. Time to pass it on. Hook up with me some time this year. Twinner, I will assume you approve……

    Only saw end of this, terrible way to go. On highlights tho, there were 8 bombs hit, so it wasn’t just SF pitchers that gave them up. Tough night, sure, but ball was obviously flying, esp with all the opposite field ones.
    And there were a lot of runs scored around all baseball last night–Mets scored 12, Pads 13, Rangers Stros game was 12-9.

    Sad note this morning saw that Mel Farr great UCLA running back and rookie of year for Detroit Lions died at 70. UCLA and SC were just factories in those days for great running backs, really fun to watch. HIs cousin Miller Farr was also an All Pro at corner who played for many years in the old AFL

    Out of pocket yesterday as my sister and I hosted presentations from 3 different realtors plus a visit from a granite counter person. Had the game on with no sound and it went from 2-0 to 4-0 to 6-0. Finally I gave the computer a knowing-dude head knod and shut it down to fully to concentrate on the household stuff, knowing the game was in the bag. Then the kids and a friend came over for a BBQ and an epic game of Monopoly. Imagine my horror when I check MLB at about 11:30 last night only to see we blew the lead and lost. Of course, I then had to conduct the autopsy of reviewing all of the Flap posts that accompanied that epic meltdown.
    Oh well…that’s baseball. We strap it on again today and hope for a better outcome.
    On the positive side, the Candy pic is in good hands and arrived PROMPTLY—plus in a 5 player game where everyone had a monopoly and I only had the light blue Section 8 apartments, I shocked the house by winning the game. Connecticut Ave was an absolute golden goose for me once I put a hotel on that sucker.
