    scherzer has had a pretty dang good season so far. If you look at leader for NL pitching on B/R he is at or near top in WAR, WHIP, ERA, K/BB rate, least hits and walks given up, complete games and shutouts, etc.
    He gets a ton of $$, but has put himself up there with Bum Op Greinke as premier aces of NL.

      Duffman and Belt don’t seem impressed.

      • willedav said, on August 14, 2015 at 7:39 pm

        yeah Duff dropped the bat head and yanked that right out of Dodge.
        Belt fought off the jam shot for a base hit, nice start.

        Cain looks like he is still in ST tho.

  2. Flavor said, on August 14, 2015 at 7:48 pm

    Cain is throwing a ball with someone else’s arm. I don’t think he’s ever gonna get it back. Sometimes what you’re born with is the best you got……

    Btw, Loo was not all that far off last night—bottom of order went 1-9 with KAT’s gapper triple.
    Tonite you sub in OOO, so see if they can beat that.

  4. Paul Sorensen said, on August 14, 2015 at 7:57 pm

    I’m still laughing at Loo’s POTD about Thanksgiving at the Loo house…..

    Another bomb! Giants are crushing this guy.

  7. Macdog said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:04 pm

    Pad the lead on Max!

  8. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    Duffy: The cream or the clear?

  9. Carstie Clausen said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    Big Matt ain’t a gettin Cained tonight.

  10. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:11 pm

    Blanco might have hurt his wrist on that catch…

  11. willedav said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:15 pm

    Dang Pence says I’ll have some of that.
    Even the ones that just went fair, all the hits tonight have been smoked.

  12. Flavor said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:25 pm

    I’m watching Scherzer throw balls right down broadway and I’m like, who IS that?

  13. Bozo said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:30 pm

    Even up 6-1, I’m not sure Matt will be able to make it through five tonight?

    • James said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:40 pm

      Lookin’ prescient so far . . . .

      • Bozo said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:42 pm

        Damn.

  14. Paul Sorensen said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:35 pm

    Saturday morning baseball in Saigon! Psyched. For some reason, cannot get on to MLB website or Giants site to check out GameDay, so figured I’d turn on the tube and see if by some slim chance Fox Asia might have something…. lo and behold, I am watching the Giants live and listening to Kruk and Kuip. As the immortal Ferret might say, “Woohoo!”…. Hey, it’s the little things in life….

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:37 pm

      Nice!

    • Paul Sorensen said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:39 pm

      Yes, nice, although what this will really serve to do is allow me to procrastinate further from writing a mid-term exam for my Brand Management class next week…..

  15. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:47 pm

    I think everyone here saw that coming.

  16. Bozo said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:48 pm

    Shit, shit, shit.

  17. Paul Sorensen said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:48 pm

    Ok, sorry, Flappers. Guess I’m a jinx, I’ll turn off the TV now… :-p Man, I was completely wrong awhile back when I thought Peavy was done but Cain would be ok. Guess not.

  18. James said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    No quality start for Cainer tonight.

    • Paul Sorensen said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:52 pm

      I know you’re not a big fan of that stat category, and yeah, it’s somewhat useless, but I’m trying to think, when WAS Cain’s last *quality start*? Has he had one this year yet? Or are we going back over a year for that? Yikes….

      • James said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:55 pm

        Cain may need some brand management this off season, Paul 🙂

      • Paul Sorensen said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:02 pm

        Yep, his brand equity is WAY down. Actually, it’s gone to being non-existent. Absolutely no value to the team. Sad. Have we really lost Timmy and Matt? The two pillars of the beginning of the dynasty….

  19. Macdog said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:51 pm

    Jesus, Cain really is done.

  20. Lurker John said, on August 14, 2015 at 8:55 pm

    Just shit pitching from Cain. Horrible location all over.

  21. Lisle Ellis said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:05 pm

    @willedav: I responded to your early morning post in todays first thread with a Dewey Redmond story you may find of interest.

    • James said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:16 pm

      Awesome story, Lisle. Billy Harper at the Keystone Korner was the very first jazz show I ever saw. It was right after his very nice debut on Black Saint.

      Dewey’s son is the biggest name to emerge from the Berkeley High School jazz program. I have most of his stuff, and was disappointed when he didn’t show up for a really big alumni event a few years ago when one of my kids was in the band. It is a truly amazing program.

      Hope you and WillieD don’t mind the interjection . . . .

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:40 pm

        Awesome interjections such as yours are more than welcome James! Speaking only for myself, of course!

  22. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:07 pm

    Well with another $50 million coming to him, he’s gonna pitch…

  23. Lisle Ellis said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:07 pm

    I wouldn’t go as far as to say Cain is “done” but he is definitely still in Spring training mode … He’s good for 60 – 70 pitches max … Another case, of leaving an SP out there too long.

    • Macdog said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:22 pm

      I tend to overreact. I thought Peavy was shot after he gave up a grand slam to some since-released Padres backup catcher back in April, but he’s been fine since returning.

      • djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:28 pm

        Maybe Cain pulls a 2012 Zito-type miracle before it’s all over for him…

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:41 pm

        That could be quite feasible … by the time we hit October Cain could be running on all cylinders! … Let’s hope it is so!

      • Lisle Ellis said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:44 pm

        Mac, I am the emperor of over reactions and negativity as I’ve blantantly exposed y’all to here many times. I always wear black and will continue to do so until they invent an even darker color!

  24. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:15 pm

    Nice of them to take the camera off those 4 hot dog eating slobs long enough to see Blanco’s double…

  25. Bozo said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:19 pm

    Got one back. Let’s get some more.

  26. James said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    Belt gets one of those RBIs back after his numerous hits w/ a fat ass RISP who couldn’t score.

  27. Lisle Ellis said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:26 pm

    Courtesy of Baggs … “Batters hitting .279 off Cain in first 4 innings, .419 thereafter.”

    Says it all … sorta.

  28. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    6-4-box seats…

    • Paul Sorensen said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:53 pm

      Yeah, huh… I thought maybe he was actually still on the team because, you know, he can actually do something…. like, throwing the ball. I liked your idea last year of pushing him out of the plane over Fresno on the way back from a road trip. Now of course it would be Sacto. I’m more in favor of the Aleutian Islands at this point.

  29. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    MacDog is right. The loss of Panik has been devastating.

  30. James said, on August 14, 2015 at 10:02 pm

    One of these days someone else besides me will say it: Sergio Romo is the best ever SF reliever. Maybe after I shut up about it.

    • djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 10:08 pm

      I think I agree.

  31. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 10:03 pm

    Best bunt since Aubrey Huff in 2010 WS clincher…

  32. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    What does Bochy expect the umps to do, reverse a correct call?

  33. James said, on August 14, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    Hell, he left Romo in the game to potentially embarrass me?!?

  34. James said, on August 14, 2015 at 10:14 pm

    Bochy treating the save stat like the useless fraud it is.

  35. Bozo said, on August 14, 2015 at 10:17 pm

    And there you have it.

  36. Lurker John said, on August 14, 2015 at 10:18 pm

    Great job by the pen. Saved Cain’s ass.

  37. snarkk said, on August 14, 2015 at 11:10 pm

    Somebody tell Bochy that Cain needs to go back on the DL. This contract is looking like a mess of Zito propoortions…

  38. zumiee said, on August 14, 2015 at 11:33 pm

    Cain blew a 6-0 lead earlier in the season. It may have been that brutal loss vs. Philly.

    • Macdog said, on August 15, 2015 at 12:26 am

      It was the Braves.

      • zumiee said, on August 15, 2015 at 12:40 am

        Ah, thanks, now I remember it.

  39. zumiee said, on August 14, 2015 at 11:39 pm

    Sandoval asked for the ball tonight when he got his 500th career RBI.
    Maybe it’s just me, but that seems lame and clueless. He also asked for the ball earlier this season after his 200th career double. Glad he’s focused on what’s essential.
