Re-Focusing Priorities

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 11, 2015

The Astros come to town and this would be a good series to turn things around. Bum should pile up the K’s against a team that loves to swing and miss. The problem, for us, is when they don’t miss. But if we can’t feel confident with Bum going at home then this season is over. So, I feel good about tonight’s game.

3 things need to happen:

  1. we need to stop thinking about the wildcard and focus 100% on winning the division. The Dodgers aren’t very good and starting in August 31st we play them 7 times. You want to chew up games at rototiller speed, that’s the time to do it.
  2. We need to somehow make it to September within 6 games of LA. Our September schedule is a combination of Disneyland and a rolling daisy patch field. Get to September within hailing distance of LA and the last 30 days of the season could be exciting as hell.
  3. In order for #1 and #2 to happen, we need to pick up James Shields and bench help immediately. The team as presently constructed has no chance…….

      Romo is the Lone Ranger, so far…

      Let Bum finish this fucker.

    Unbelievable Kruk’s hard on for that Carlos Gomez catch!
    Just don’t play another game of baseball ever, he has vehemently decided that no other catch in the FUCKING HISTORY of Baseball will ever top that play!!

    Wilco thx for insights on Stros. Saw some of their games for first time this weekend, not much offense vs. A’s pitching and then Gregerson choked a couple away. Thought they would add to pen.
    They are still in first and having a fine season, made bold moves at deadline just having rough week.
    I do like the road unis, with dark blue hat and sleeves.
    Would be great story for them to win division.

      Yeah, the new Unis are sharp. They have had some hideous uniforms over the years.

    is Carlos related to Chick? He play the keyboard in the off-season?

    MadBum CG!

    Belt making a very nice impression for his next team 😉

  8. chipower9 said, on August 11, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    Ballgame! And a complete one at that! Fuck Yeah! That has to charge the whole team’s batteries! Let’s do it again, tomorrow!

    I dig it that Flan does some post-game work. I sure miss seeing him along the line at 3rd…

    great game. Hope it doesn’t mask any of the problems we have that Juan Perez cannot fix…….

      lqtm…

    What a gem by Bum. He looks to be in late season form. Gotta like the Giants chances tomorrow with Heston (who threw a gem in Houston in May) going against Feldman.

    Impressive outing for the Undertaker!!
    12 Coffins, and a complete game!!
    And I will have a Belt, for Brandon!!
    2 Bombs!!
    Big win after that ugly trip, Great job Giants!!!

  13. chipower9 said, on August 11, 2015 at 10:00 pm

    That is fucking crazy that seven of Belt’s last 10 hits have been HRs. I told ya we should have traded his ass…

  14. alleykat69 said, on August 11, 2015 at 10:07 pm

    Chi,,
    Breaking news.. Bruce Bochy just took your advice and traded Brandon Belt to Miami for Casey McGhehee..

  15. chipower9 said, on August 11, 2015 at 10:09 pm

    Bochy, in describing Belt taking it personal when he (Bochy) sits him and puts Posey at first, and Bochy saying it was even more attractive when Susac was available. Zing! That one had to sting like a hard shot off the mask, eh Hector?

    Great win…
    By the way..How awesome is it that we have all 5 infielders homegrown!!!! Keep Belt!!!!

  17. alleykat69 said, on August 11, 2015 at 10:33 pm
