A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

On the 7th Day, Voggy Rises….

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 23, 2015

Sunday Night game on ESPN tonight. Voggy v Liriano. On the surface this seems to have all the makings of an embarrassing execution but Voggy has proven everyone wrong time and time again. I don’t know if it’s the enchiladas, the blow jobs, or divine intervention. Maybe a combo of all 3.

I can’t come up with a reasonable expectation for success tonight so I’ll just leave it to you guys to pump up the blog…….

    Wow, another guy out the pen giving up a bomb, theme of the road trip.
    Along with Giants unable to respond in kind.

    I didn’t see a lot on this trip, but tell me Pirates don’t look a lot tougher to beat than Cards.

      I’ve been wondering the same thing, especially after they swept the Mets in NY last week. The only thing is, other than Cole, their starting pitchers aren’t really that formidable.

    • zumiee said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:21 pm

      Yeah, the Giants were competitive in all these games; just couldn’t get past missing Pence and Panik.

    Arizona and San Diego are going to pass us.

    • zumiee said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:23 pm

      Could be, and pass the Dodgers, too. The Dodgers are looking old and tired, too.

  3. unca_chuck said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:23 pm

    These fucking announcers are way too busy gabbing to pay attention to the game or figure out the players on the teams they are broadcasting. 3 guys in the booth causes this insipid babble.

  4. unca_chuck said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:23 pm

    Yeah, noticed the Pads and Dbacks are both hovering around ,500.

    Flav you’re on fire tonite. 7:01, 7:35, et al.
    The Cialis or whatev ads are all lame, but your response is POTY.

    Ever since last night when I watched last quarter of Raider game my TV has been messed up; tonite it’s on and then shuts off after short while, then I gave up. Like it knows what I did was wrong.

    Listened to Kruk and miller for a while. Even Kruk uttered the dreaded “nibbling” description.
    I can admire Vogs for his grit, but I’ve just never warmed to that style of SP…didn’t care much for Rueter either.

    • Flavor said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:29 pm

      ha, and those ads are somehow, impossibly, getting lamer. Glad my kid doesn’t like watching baseball with me. How do you explain the viagra ads that are on every 3 seconds to your pre-teen?

      • Macdog said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:35 pm

        When my daughter was younger, we would play this computer game called Deer Avenger in which the deer gets to blow away the hunters. One of the calls used to lure the hunters out of the woods was “Viagra, get your Viagra,” and my giggling daughter was blissfully unaware of what that meant. Now when she sees those ads it’s like a little running gag between us.

        I read I think 3 novels set in Bangkok about last honest cop there a devout Buddhist who has to investigate all these horrible crimes in the stories, written by J Burdett. The cop’s Mom was in the “business” in her younger days, but then met a powerful colonel who set her up as boss of her own place. She advertises for older guys from all over world to come there, gives them a dose and then her girls take care of them a half hour or so later.

        But yeah, how can you explain to kids why this is a product marketed so heavily?

    Many crazy weeks of baseball ahead.

  7. unca_chuck said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    Blehhh. The time they really NEED to rest Posey, they aren’t.

  8. Macdog said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:42 pm

    Giants left town 2.5 games out of first place and will return 1.5 games back, so this might have been the most successful 2-5 road trip in team history.

    • ewisco said, on August 23, 2015 at 8:48 pm

      amen brother. nice call.

    “Uh oh, I’ve lost all vision and hearing. Maybe I should call my dr. But wait, I’ve still got a rockstar hard on that’s lasted 4 hours. Call my dr? Hmmmmmm, I think I’m gonna keep jack hammering away on my lady “Helen Keller style.” lqtm

        Jessica Walter, she of wacko-ness in Play Misty for Me.
        One of my favorite Clint movies. Came out in ’71, same year as SF’s playoff loss against the Bucs.
        He came out at night from his supposed radio station gig to a bar actually at the place that was / is
        the Sardine Factory restaurant in Monterey. Great wine list in that place — as long as War and Pinot…

    Catching up on today’s comments was certainly a lot more entertaining than those last couple of innings. Great stuff today, from the greatest HRs to the Plaque names. Geez, the Prez is probably more deserving than Benard.

  11. snarkk said, on August 23, 2015 at 11:06 pm

    Voggy’s inning #1 fateful hole digging tonight is Exhibit A for why Heston needs to be playoff eligible…

    Another road trip and another plane ride home licking our wounds. Ending the dog days against two of those road teams and then the doggers.
    Daubers in loser mode. But with zumie in the yard Thursday we have one win a-comin’
    I have stopped praying for miracles like a healthy horse or a panik back or more than one giant getting hot at the same time.
    Today, I pray for endurance.
    Rest my Gigantes and spank the cubbies.

    Standings don’t say so but Pirates look like better team than Cards do, at least vs. Giants. Better speed and power up and down LU, plus McCutch, a better player overall than any other Cardinal. As wilco said pitching not quite as good, but home and away 2 good series against SF.
    Ramirez a good pick up, and maybe they get return to last year form from healthy J Harrison. Love their OF.

    @SD–I dug willie the phillie too, one of first guys I remember doing the snap grab on popups. I used to practice that playing OF in batting practice or workouts for softball teams I was on but didn’t have nerve enough to do it in a game.
    Like behind the back passes in b-ball, you screw one up it’s pretty embarrassing.

  14. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2015 at 8:55 am

    The Cards are decimated by injuries. They get healthy, they won;t be a walk in the park either.

    We should be making hay on this Dead Dog swoon. Starting tomorrow.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on August 24, 2015 at 9:15 am

      Cubbies tomorrow night throw Arrieta against Cain. Doesn’t sound easy unless Posey wakens from his slumber and Belt plays. We are missing two majorest bats already and desperately need the aforenamed to start reconnecting.
