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.

Behold:

candy1

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…….

    Unquestionably without the slightest doubt one of your most golden epic posts. #rimshotjob

  2. pawliekokonuts said, on August 3, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    repeated from prev thread:

    1. I have no idea who Buzzsaw and Hill are? Boxers? Or some sort of extreme sport male Rounda Rousey or whoever she is? I thought Buzzsaw was Loo’s Shea Stadium pal. 2. I have never met or even heard of anyone named Kelby before. Is he on Duck Dynasty? Bring back Jo-Arias.

  3. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    PK– Aubrey Hill is the bully who used to patrol the sandlots back in the 70’s in San Dawg’s hood. BuzzSaw is the goon who was Loo’s bodyguard back in the day at Met games.
    I created a “who could kick who’s ass?” virtual beat down yesterday just because I was bored as fuck…..

    • pawliekokonuts said, on August 3, 2015 at 3:34 pm

      then throw in Dennis Fluegel from my neighborhood — not that I’m still sore at him or anything

    • chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:39 pm

      Who won the fight? I had my money on Aubrey (those wiry guys always seem to kick some serious ass).

    Maybe Triples Alley Paranoia (TAP) has turned Belt into a strong opposite field hitter…

  6. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    Maybe Triples Alley Paranoia (TAP) has turned Crawford into a strong opposite field hitter…

  7. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    those were 2 of the most un-fun HR’s I’ve ever seen. Oppo field, both times the OF barely misses it. The first one bounces over the fence and the 2nd one, shit, I thought he had it for like 5 seconds after he hit the ground. lol

  8. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2015 at 4:40 pm

    And now an un-fun double…

  9. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Why is the disabled list 15 days?

    • Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 4:47 pm

      half of 30 dawg, everyone knows this shit.

      • chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:40 pm

        You are on a roll tonight, Craig…

  10. James said, on August 3, 2015 at 4:54 pm

    Thank goodness Gregor has been picked up. He needed a pick me up. Way to pick him up, Buster! I can’t believe K&K missed the pick me up story.

  11. Macdog said, on August 3, 2015 at 4:58 pm

    Buster sweet 16!

  12. James said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:07 pm

    Think I may turn this shit off.

  13. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    Any chance we could get a bomb where I just yell out “fuck yeah!” as soon as it’s hit? That’s how Barry used to do ’em

    • James said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:09 pm

      LOL

  14. blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:10 pm

    Four homeruns in one game? I can recall an entire month where that was the total.

  15. Carstie Clausen said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:15 pm

    No need to panic tonight anyway. SF’s new BBB-gun attack is hard at it: Buster, Brandon and Brandon(2). Who said it’s only hockey that has power plays? Jeeze, whodda thunk it after yesterday’s near shutout. Just goes to tell ya baseball is always coming up with new adventures in playtime. Way he’s going Crawdaddy should top 20 dingers nicely and Buster will boast more than a hundred rib-eyes once again. What’s Belt gonna do? Keep heating up in that Southern fried climate reminding him of Nacogdoces.

  16. Carstie Clausen said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:20 pm

    Doesn’t appear that Matt the Horse is likely to get Cained tonight. The pride of Dothan, Alabama is another one of those Southern boys who seems to thrive in the heat ~ so far, so good, anyway. Be nice if he can settle into a nice steady dose of what he has shown us back in the day a bit.

  17. Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    We’re halfway through the game, we got a nice lead, why not give the new kid (Tomlinson) a chance to get some swings in at 2nd base … He can’t do any worse than Airhead 000 can he? New Kid was hitting over .300 in Sac with an ops over .800 … just a thought …

    • Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:27 pm

      “airhead” lol

    • blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:42 pm

      Agree. Adrianza is a big zero.

  18. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:26 pm

    Andrew Baggarly ‏@extrabaggs 16m16 minutes ago
    File this away, just in case: the last pitcher to allow five HRs to the Giants in game was the Reds’ Bill Gullickson in 1987.

  19. chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:37 pm

    I gotta have that shit, Flav! NOT. That is some funny shit my man. One of the more funny FLAP threads ever, IMO. Pure platinum.

    It sure as hell is good to see Cain back on the hill (well, at least when he is pitching well). 😉

  20. Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:42 pm

    Fuckin Airhead 000 …

    • chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:44 pm

      I am with you, Lisle…bring in the kid…it is time he got his cup of joe…

  21. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:44 pm

    Another nice yard for the Giants hitters.

  22. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    Somehow the Tomahawk Chop survives. It’s been a fuckin’ quarter of a century.
    And still the Redskins seem to take all the heat from Native Americans…

    • Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:57 pm

      isn’t that the shit? Crazy.

  23. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:46 pm

    Cainer running out of gas. Not a huge surprise.

  24. James said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:47 pm

    I was about to post this:

    “Contra Stix, Cain’s shut out is more unfun than those HRs.”

    Then I saw Chi’s post, and thought, nah, I’ll skip it.

    • chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:56 pm

      😉

  25. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:52 pm

    Candy Maldonado and that ’87 season is quite a story. Pretty intense.

  26. James said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:53 pm

    Johnny Gomes looks like he filled Vacaville’s Aubrey Hill role for a time.

  27. chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    Whatever I said about Cain…scratch that shit…

  28. James said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:58 pm

    Kontos just doesn’t look like he has the stuff to continue on his roll for a lot longer.

    • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:00 pm

      I think he has logged more innings in relief than any one in MLB … If I’m wrong, I’m not far off.

      • James said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:07 pm

        Could be. I will be very happy if his ERA is still near 1.62 with 0.860 WHIP by the end of September.

  29. Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 5:59 pm

    Well, we can’t have a Giants game with out a modicum of torture … tonight’s is courtesy of Mr. Cain.

    • James said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:04 pm

      In retrospect, Airhead’s DP in the top of the inning contributed just a tad . . . .

  30. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:04 pm

    According to the crawl on the Braves feed, some college player was arrested for resisting arrest…

  31. Macdog said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:06 pm

    For chrissakes, it might take another Craw bomb to win this one.

  32. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:12 pm

    0-2 fastball, right down the middle. That just can’t happen.

  33. blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:15 pm

    Anyone from here live out there or has visited Atlanta’s stadium? Wondering WTF is wrong with this one – which is fairly new – for them to build another stadium? Who’s paying for it? My guess is the taxpayers of Atlanta.

    • zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:23 pm

      The new one will be in the suburbs. White flight.

    • zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:25 pm

      Technically, this one was left over from the Atlanta Olympics. It’s still good, though.

    • chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:45 pm

      I was there a number of years ago…seemed like a decent enough place…

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:53 pm

        Me too … about twenty years … I seem to remember a statue of Hamerin Hank at the main entrance.

    • wilcojoe said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:59 pm

      I was there for the Braves-Giants series during a business trip last year. You would never guess the stadium was less than twenty years old. The paint was chipping off concourse walls, the seats had faded color, it was a mess. It was built for the Olympics right before the first of the new era parks were built (Camden, Coors, etc..). It also is in a bad part of down. Just on the other side of the tracks from downtown. There is absolutely nothing around it but freeways. No bars, restaurants, or any of things that make AT&T (and others) so great. Revitalization obviously never came about in this hood of the ATL.

      • blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:11 pm

        OK, that explains it . . . Thanks for the detailed answer.

      • wilcojoe said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:15 pm

        Much like Houston, the downtown of Atlanta itself is quite boring. Weekdays its all business, but on the weekends it’s a dead zone. However once you get to the midtown and uptown areas (Buckhead) you start to see more restaurants, pubs, music venues and other public areas that are much more inviting.

  34. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    Krukow tells the Affeldt scud story for the 100th time.

  35. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:41 pm

    Someone needs to tell Krukow that Doubleday had nothing to do with the inventing of baseball.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:47 pm

      Krukowspeak . . . Never let the truth interfere with a good story.

  36. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    Casilla’s usual crappy job.

  37. Macdog said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:56 pm

    FUCCCCK!

  38. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:56 pm

    well, this AJ development is going to have some serious implications on the in-game Candy discount. Stay tuned…..

  39. chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:56 pm

    Of all the fucking people to hit one…

  40. Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:57 pm

    The predictability of unpredictability …

  41. Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    Anybody ever notice that nine times out of ten … After a Bags visit to the mound something bad happens? Or is that just me and my negativity?

  42. mrsprtdude said, on August 3, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    Fuck! Have i been o the record before about how much i still hate that asshole AJ P…

  43. Macdog said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:01 pm

    One trade wasn’t nearly enough for this bunch.

  44. Carstie Clausen said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:01 pm

    When Johnson singled i got that bad feeling that AJ was gonna do what he did. Damned precognition doesn’t always work on Giants heroics.

  45. Lurker John said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:02 pm

    Epic chokage by Casilla. 2 outs, bases empty…wow.

  46. blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:13 pm

    We’re fortunate that it is tied. All is forgiven if they pull this one out.

  47. blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    “His power is down around his knees”

    Uhh . . . Whatever ya say Kruk.

  48. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:45 pm

    that is the most awesome thing I’ve seen in a while……

  49. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    At 5:06 Just getting in my ride after work crawdaddy jacks one to make it 6-0. Figure wtf I’m pissed I missed the onslaught, so I go grocery shopping, come out, turn on the radio and hear my all time fucking prick of human existence AJ Jerkoff hitting one out off of Casilla to tie it at 7-7. Should of just went to the Hanky Panky Club and got spanked😁

  50. Bozo said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:48 pm

    Base hit for the kid in extras, ya gotta love it.

  51. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:50 pm

    I read some random tweet earlier today about Tomlinson being in a hotel room in Utah and getting the call from Evans and he hangs up on his wife to take the Evans call. Didn’t think a moment about it again. Then I see his wife and dad in the nosebleeds and he’s at bat, he gets a hit. Crazy. Think about all the shit that went down in the last 6 hours or so to make that moment happen for those folks. And the 2 decades that came before it. Awesome.

    • Bozo said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:53 pm

      Yup, one crazy ass day for Tomlinson and the Fam.

  52. Bozo said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:52 pm

    That’s going to leave a mark. Hope the White Shark doesn’t go down.

  53. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:52 pm

    just so fucking rad.

  54. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    and the best part about all of this is those 2 are still sitting in the seats they bought, lol. There were like 15k at THE START of the game. his wife and dad are still up there in the nosebleeds rocking it.
    I can’t get over how awesome that is.

    • Bozo said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:58 pm

      His dad is awesome, dude looks like he could handle himself in a brawl.

  55. Bozo said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    YES!

  56. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2015 at 7:57 pm

    As Mel Allen use to say “How about that”
    The Kid with his 1st big knock in his 1st big league AB hitting a thousand and scoring the lead run in hopefully a Giants victory!
    Way to go Kelby “Clark Kent glasses” Tomilnson!!!!

    • Carstie Clausen said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:02 pm

      Kat: Had the same thought. Kelby snapping a base-hit in his first at bat in The Show. That and scoring the go-ahead run in the 12th will be a great lifetime memory for another one of those Giants callups who was not even considered a prospect, but who had done well this year at Richmond, got his promotion to Sacramento and makes his ML debut tonight. One very memorable evening and it will be more so if the see-sawing can stop with the Giants umpteenth reliever nailing it down.

  57. Bozo said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    OK, one run lead is all we’ve got (this time), shut this shit down.

  58. chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    Yep…a very nice first game for Tomlinson, and so cool that his pops and wife are there to take it in. Need to close this bitch out…

  59. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:02 pm

    Man, Craw does that once in a while.

  60. chipower9 said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:04 pm

    Well fuck that…WTF

  61. Flavor said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:04 pm

    no words. wow.

    Fucking, fucking, fucking awful.

  65. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    Wow. Fuck that stadium . That was off the end of the bat. Just blew 2 games in a row.

  66. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    God this road trip FUCKING SUCKS!!!!

  67. zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:06 pm

    Our bullpen has issues.

  68. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:06 pm

    I thought that was an easy out.

  69. Bozo said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:07 pm

    Well, that sucked.

  71. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:08 pm

    Wlell we’ve certain been beaten by a lot of dominos and broken bat hits.

  72. Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    Get Airhead 000 a ticket back to Sac and let Kid Tom have his spot … Fucking bull pen sucks … What this, the third game on this trip we should have won? Too late in the year and too close of a race for this kinda streak.

    • zumiee said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:17 pm

      Too many guys at the end of their string in the bullpen. There’s no quick fix.

  73. snarkk said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:16 pm

    I’m off to the north country, gents, Canada, that is. Toronto, Montreal , Quebec City and points around. I’m going to forget this abomination of a game and hopefully when I get back in a fortnight, the Giants will have righted the ship. Right now, I’m a bit concerned my prediction of Pen cratering is coming a bit early. Go Giants!…

    • blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:20 pm

      You driving Tom?

      • snarkk said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:25 pm

        Flying out to Toronto tonight…

    • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:25 pm

      Be sure to check out The Main on Blvd St. Laurent … Directly across from Schwartz’s … The latter is the famous smoked meat place full of tourists .. The former is where the locals go .. you may see Lenoard Cohen in there … I lived in that neighborhood for 9 years.

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:26 pm

        Sorry .. I’m speaking of Montreal … I’d by pass Toronto … Just a suggestion … I hate that town!

      • snarkk said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:27 pm

        Montreal?

      • snarkk said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:30 pm

        Two and a half days Toronto on biz, them squeeze the rest in about a week — rest of TJs snarkk family is already up there — they went to Niagra Falls yesterday — said they never saw so many ateakhouses in one place…

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:31 pm

        Yes, lived in Montreal for 9 years … Moved in 92 to SF … I was huge Expos fan until the 1994 debacle

      • pawliekokonuts said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:34 pm

        L.E.,
        Cool story. I’m a big fan of Leonard. Saw him in Kingston, ON in 2009.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:27 pm

      Whatcha mean “North Country”? Except for Quebec City the other two burgs are south of me at 47 degrees, 56 minutes North.

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:33 pm

        Climate is a powerfull thing heh?

      • pawliekokonuts said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:37 pm

        Montreal. Haven’t been there in 20+ years, but I recall the most beautiful and stylish women you’ll see anywhere, tho’ I’ve not been around the world, like Blade.

      • snarkk said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:47 pm

        Ok Pawlie, I’m not sure that Mrs. snarkk would appreciate my looking out for cool, stylish Montreal women, since she’ll be with me… 😉

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 9:00 pm

        Yeah, but what Pawlie is saying is true .. The women are like something from another planet .. But in good way, a very good way .. Your neck will hurt from swinging your head around so much … So, you better be prepared with good excuse for Mrs Snarrk as to what you keep looking at!

  74. blade3colorado said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:18 pm

    The Braves rallied from deficits of six runs and two runs to force extra innings. Complete meltdown of Giants pitching.

  75. pawliekokonuts said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:24 pm

    That was fecking about the most unfun fecking loss in long fecking while. Not fun. At all.

  76. Carstie Clausen said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:24 pm

    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.

  77. Lurker John said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:33 pm

    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.

    • Lisle Ellis said, on August 3, 2015 at 8:34 pm

      Exactly right LJ! It’ll be upon us before we know it.

    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!

    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.
