A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

(Ker) Shank Redemption?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 2, 2015

Sinking, sinking, but not yet sunk.

Sure, the umps didn’t do us any favors but the bottom line is that Greinke was better than Bumgarner and even with that, this game was there for the taking. We simply didn’t get it done.

Kershaw is just a man, he can be beaten. I have decent confidence in Leake to make a game of it. Dodger hitters don’t scare me. I could easily see the Giants winning today. They almost have to.

It’s irritating that we aren’t pummeling a bullpen that everyone else pummels.

    Wish they had sent Duff Man on the 1-2 pitch. Handcuffed Grandal. Would have tied it up with Posey ‘ s single

      Let’s go Bird Man

    Buster saw Kershaw’s slider and fouled it off or took it several times. Byrd swung over it and out last time.

      and there it was again. Three tough fought unbelievably close games, with a bunch of bad breaks including umpire crimes against the Giants, and September looks like Denali.

    Fuck!

    Pfffttt . . .

    Frickin #@$&(#)

    Same shit. Different night.

    It’s gonna take a miracle. Miracles are rare, but they do happen.

    Getting swept by the fucking bums is THE WORST.

    Damn. Would a been sweet to beat opie 130 pitches in.

    Fuck. Hope for the Cubs to crater? At this pint that seems more likely.

    Pitch count may come back to haunt Kershaw…

    • xoot said, on September 2, 2015 at 9:53 pm

      unfortunately, that may be in the PS, but I was thinking along the same lines

  9. blade3colorado said, on September 2, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    15 strike outs. Rarely will that result in a win.

  10. Bozo said, on September 2, 2015 at 9:54 pm

    Kershaw? “Motherfuck him and John Wayne”

  11. djloo27 said, on September 2, 2015 at 9:59 pm

    It’s time to do something desperate:
    Replace the worn out BBOTD with the picture of young Flavor in that awesome outfit..

    Op was still throwing 95 at pitches 124 and 130 according to cbs site. He’s on a roll, but Leake looked dang good too, Giants just haven’t scored for him.

    Giants better tcb on rest of chump teams in division to catch LA or Cubs…starting with Sherps. Miller on radio at start of game said Friday SP still undecided. Hmmnn.

    The one thing Giants could absolutely not do was get swept. And, that’s what they did.
    They were in every game, they just are missing the horses needed to get wins. With Pence, Panik and Craw out, you really can’t expect to just go out and win. Nobody but Byrd seems to be able to get doubles and HRs, and that’s what it takes to get runs with the rest of the squad barely at AAAA level. Adrianza now at .165. You can’t win a lot with a SS swinging linguini like that. It is on Sabean that they are trotting a guy out there that is an automatic out in the major leagues, and there is no other option…

    Normally, G-Head’s earlier suggestion to send Duffy would be lunacy with Posey up. But, it wasn’t such a crazy idea given that Posey — for whatever reason — is nothing more than a singles hitter lately,

    • blade3colorado said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:42 pm

      Yeah, he’s running on fumes lately. Not going to get into the 1st base redux suggestion, but him being optimal all season long means a lot less time catching.

  15. zumiee said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:42 pm

    Well, stuff we were concerned about in Spring Training came to pass. Starting pitching issues and bench issues. Pagan didn’t bounce back. McGiggles flopped.

    • snarkk said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:45 pm

      We called out the starting pitching issues early on, before the season. Lots of fans did. Voggy re-sign was a bad move. They aren’t out of it yet, but dang close. Keeping Pagan and his Capn Ahab leg out there for 2 months made no sense. Arias on nothing but bellman duty for 2 months also made no sense. Games were wasted. Anyway, Panik and Pence need to get back, stat. No guarantees at all that these games v Rocks and v Padres are gimmees. If they start Heston or Huddy in mile high Denver, that will be crazy, IMO…

  16. snarkk said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:43 pm

    I do believe the umps had it in the Gyros after the first game, for some reason. They let Romo get away with a balk, but I think balk calls are stupid anyway. Every meaningful call afterwards seemed to favor the Doghairs…

  17. zumiee said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:46 pm

    I like GH’s logic about going all-in for Greinke. It’s double value. Our gain and the Dodgers’ loss.

    • snarkk said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:48 pm

      If that happens, pigs will fly at ATT…

    • blade3colorado said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:52 pm

      I hope not Zum . . . Grienke has 2058.2 innings on that arm (207 per year for 12 years). I see us getting “Schmidted” by him and the Bums if we sign him. Dude wants a max contract too. IMO we will be making the biggest mistake ever . . . Cain and Zito will pale in comparison.

      • snarkk said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:53 pm

        I want starters under 30. Period. End of story…

  18. Paul Sorensen said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:48 pm

    Time for a 10-game winning streak. Yet, as currently constituted, I’m afraid a 10-game losing streak is more likely. Way too many winnable games lost the past 2 weeks. Dudes need to come out angry at Coors…

  19. snarkk said, on September 2, 2015 at 10:50 pm

    Nick Noonan?
    Seriously?…

  20. zumiee said, on September 2, 2015 at 11:16 pm

    The Cards lose Wainright and their top prospect dies, and they’re 39 games over .500.

    Sandoval’s hitting .247 for his last-place Red Sox.

    Just some random observations

  21. mrsprtdude said, on September 2, 2015 at 11:52 pm

    Since the 3rd inning Monday we scored 3 runs in 29 innings. Thats how sweeps happen. We pitched great. No hitting at all. I missed todays game, but not even one hard hit ball yesterday, Grr
