Why the heck not?

    It’s September 15th, and it’s a meaningful game. At least keep putting pressure on the Dodgers and Cubs, and force them to play their best ball.

    • Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 6:26 pm

      I mean, hey, it’s a game that still counts. 000 and Perez are batting not only in the same game but back to back. Then Hest by Hest. So that’s 33% of your line up, in a row, that won’t be getting a hit tonight…….

  2. Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    the ultimate question as I watch the A’s game right now: Is it AL baseball that’s boring or Glen Kuiper and Ray Fosse?

    • xoot said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:11 pm

      The only explanation for Fosse’s longevity–they’re still paying him today what he started for in 1986. (+/- $40,000.)

      • Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:13 pm

        spot on hilarious

      • snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:18 pm

        I can’t listen to any of the A’s broadcasters for more than a few minutes, max. Something about them, or the team, or the combination. Ken Korach is OK as the lead guy, but no more than OK…

      • Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:25 pm

        I watched most of the first 4 innings of that game. The A’s scored like 16 runs in 4 innings. And they were, without question, the most boringly called 16 runs I have ever heard in my life. It was like no runs had been scored. At one point during the 10 run 4th, Fosse sleepily muttered that the A’s were closing in on the franchise record for most runs scored in an inning. I think he said 13 was the record but he made such a quiet reference and I was so bored and distracted with his boringness I can’t tell for sure what he said or what was happening in the game.

      • snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:32 pm

        The A’s announcers are so boring, I was getting sleepy writing about how boring they are…

  3. Carstie Clausen said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    Giants been doing okay lately against so-so teams with 5/8ths of their starting lineup. Imagine how they would be doing with Panik, Pence and Crawford. Team is hanging tough even after not having those guys for several critical series. Bullpen is excellent lately and the starters have mostly come around ~ though Hudson sure was gassed there in the 5th last night. Will that next start go to Blackburn?

    • Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:15 pm

      exactly. And this would hold more intrigue if those 3 guys you listed were still playing. By the way, I know there’s still a min or two to go before the game starts but I just saw a pan shot of the crowd and Baer is a damn liar if he says this game is a sellout. There is NO FUCKING WAY that many people bought tickets but didn’t go to the game.

      • snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:28 pm

        It’s an asinine streak anyway with a bunch of empty seats…

  4. Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    How does 000 not field that ball Posey threw. He was RIGHT THERE. Major league shortstops at least knock that ball down every time. 100% of the time. Shit, triple A shortstops knock that down at the very least.

  5. Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:20 pm

    There is nothing I hate more about Krukow’s comments than his “you gotta earn that pitch.” FUCK THAT. If it’s a strike call it a fucking strike. If it’s a ball, call it a fucking ball. Krukow and his obsessive, weirdo book knowledge on all of these umps is beyond played out. Bring on robot umpires, if nothing else than to shut Krukow up…..

    • snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:31 pm

      Let’s get the Lost in Space robot to ump.
      Danger Danger Will Robinson — Strike One!…

      • blade3colorado said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:48 pm

        Wouldn’t the Robot say, “Danger, Danger (fill in the blanks) on strike 2? It seems a little too early for “Danger, Danger” on strike one???

  6. Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    Hesty strikes out the side. lqtm. That ball Duvall flailed at for strike 3 is why he’s never going to do shit at this level. That ball was a foot and a half outside.

  7. snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:35 pm

    I heard Bochy say on pregame that Pence might be ready to play by the last series of the season. I predicted long ago that Bochy’s first prediction of two weeks really meant no earlier than Sept 20. I was too optimistic…

  8. pawliekokonuts said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:40 pm

    Hmm. I see we are off to a rocky start, but I feel we can overcome this 3-0 deficit. After all, the Giants haven’t even batted yet. I know it is premature to comment along these lines, but looking at all the home games to come, I am beginning to suspect the Giants CAN put together a respectable surge to close out the year. I honestly do not think we will get help from losses by the Dodgers or the Cubs. But if we win, say, two-thirds of the remaining games, I’d find that very rewarding, especially given the team’s injuries, the nature of them, and who is injured. I’d salute such a season-ending surge. It would do the Giants and their fans proud, even during this era that declares you’re a failure if you don’t win it all. I reject that notion.

    • xoot said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:50 pm

      well, I’ve tickets to two games in the next two weeks, and I’m looking forward to both. Back in 2013 I took a flyer on a Sept. game, long after the writing was on the fence, and I ended up at Petit’s near perfecto–one of the finest games I’ve ever attended. Great night, although my date still doesn’t understand why I failed to tell her out loud what was going on until the very end of the 9th.

      • pawliekokonuts said, on September 15, 2015 at 7:54 pm

        I was at O.co. Wrong game. Friday night.

      • xoot said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:07 pm

        yes that was a Friday night.

      • xoot said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:26 pm

        everyone around us observed the jinx rule, although one elderly fellow a row below me with headphones on kept railing: “Why do they talk about it? Why don’t they shut up?” His wife tried to calm him.

  9. Flavor said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:16 pm

    those 3 dopey fake umpires in the stands are pretty good with their punch outs….

  10. djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:25 pm

    BA-BOOM!!!!

    • xoot said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:27 pm

      Buster never quits, that’s for sure.

  11. blade3colorado said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    That HR just made me a lot of money.

    • blade3colorado said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:26 pm

      Umm . . . Well, some money anyway. πŸ™‚

    • djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:32 pm

      What Dodgers are you rooting for?

      • blade3colorado said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:37 pm

        Actually Loo, none – weather guys were indicating problems for that game, so I faded it. I have shares in Harper (2 bombs), Heyward, Ross, and Melky.

      • djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:43 pm

        As a long time degenerate gambler, I’m all for betting to make things interesting, but I hate to think otherwise loyal Giant fans are rooting for guys that are competing directly against us…

      • blade3colorado said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:51 pm

        It doesn’t bother me in the least. I will always take a Giants win over my personal gains in gambling. Why? Because I am not betting that much (compared to Flavor for instance). I like the action, it makes the games more interesting to me. By the by, what is your email address Loo?

      • djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:53 pm

  12. Carstie Clausen said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:30 pm

    Ding-dong bell-ringer by Buster. He was about due. Nice timing.

  13. willedav said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:37 pm

    Posey is hitting .400 this month, only 2 HRs yes, but slugging .575 and OPS at 1.100, tops entire season.
    Yes he gets tired and is rested but just like last year, finishing strong.
    Hey by now everyone that has been playing all year is tired, Cs even more so but he’s rolling.

  14. mrsprtdude said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:43 pm

    I know it sounds crazy but in a weird way it’s funner to watch and root when the outcome isn’t life or death. Now I can watch to enjoy my team. Not have stroke when the ss can’t catch a ball. A small upside to being mostly out of the running. Any one else notice that?

    • zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:00 pm

      Well, I’ll agree that the playoff games are pure stress to me. I enjoy them more after the goal is all accomplished. πŸ™‚

  15. Macdog said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:48 pm

  16. willedav said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:48 pm

    There went any thoughts of Perez making the team next year.

    • djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:50 pm

      No need to chase Cespedes either…

  17. djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:48 pm

    Ask Parker who the first fan to ever speak to him was…

  18. djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 8:55 pm

    If I caught that homer, I’d hold out for a hand job from Amy…

      I’d give anything to watch that negotiation go down live.

    Call that one an outta the Parker.

    • alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:09 pm

      I have to Fess Parker up Stix, that was funny..

  20. blade3colorado said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Shocked that the Sherpas have a lead over the Dodgers tonight (3-2).

  21. djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    Concussion for Belt…

    • djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:17 pm

      Well hopefully not.

    • alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:19 pm

      Probably so Loo,
      That’s why he’s still out there, with are crack medical staff just sayin, suck it up kid!

      • blade3colorado said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:21 pm

        I’m watching Gamecast dots . . . Does he have brain damage AK? What happened to him? Should we trade him while the tradin’ is still good?

        Enquiring minds want to know . . . πŸ™‚

  22. zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:27 pm

    3 idiotic fans there.

      All 3 trying to be Bartman.

  23. zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:29 pm

    Cincy got a little screwed on that.

  24. alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:30 pm

    Another freakin moron fan who dares to wear the orange&black touching that live ball.
    And yeah they nailed Schumaker at the plate,and their letting it stand?
    And now theirs no fan interference?Is their full moon tonight?

  25. alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:37 pm

    Well Belt’s head almost did a Linda Blair 360% Blade, so trade him before he goes full circle is what most inquiring minds would say…

  26. zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:41 pm

    Man, this half inning has lasted forever.

  27. alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:44 pm

    I’ve killed a couple of beers, and pissed them out,and this inning is still going on!!

    • djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:51 pm

      Did you ever guzzle a beer while your simultaneously pissing? It’s great fun. It feels like your just pouring it right through your body. The things I do to amuse myself…

      • zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:56 pm

        Kind of similar to the saltwater laxative before a colonoscopy.

      • zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:00 pm

        I’m not a believer, Zum. How do you know they really do anything?
        I think they just knock you out and then sit around laughing at your ass till you wake up.

  28. zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:47 pm

    Strickland just isn’t there yet. Maybe he’s not going to get much better.

  29. alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    Strickland just doesn’t have that second pitch he needs..

  30. alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    As the marathon inning from hell continues!!

  31. zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 9:53 pm

    Kontos faded at the end of the season.

  32. Macdog said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    So the best thing the relievers did that inning was throw the ball away.

  33. mrsprtdude said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:17 pm

    rare commentary from Vin Scully. Rockies circled but let fall a pop up into mid left. 3 players could have caught it. When it dropped….”boys last place is last place. Watch a bad team long enough and you will see why they are in last. Ouch. Cost my starter a win in my fantasy playoffs. Grr

  34. alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    Do we really want Bumgarner facing Chapman’s 110 mph heat?Scary if he got beaned..

  35. mrsprtdude said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:23 pm

    STUUUUPID

  36. mrsprtdude said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:23 pm

    Insulting to our bench guys too

    • zumiee said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:25 pm

      They deserve the insult. πŸ™‚

  37. mrsprtdude said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:26 pm

    Just looked. It’s September and we have 6 guys on the bench and 4 of them can’t play with injuries. Did we call up guys or what? Bumgarner gets hit in the hand against an 102 heater

  38. djloo27 said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:26 pm

    But entertaining…

    Ricky Ledee had a better Giant career than De Aza…

    • snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:50 pm

      Ricky Ledee looked like Prince, but didn’t swing his bat as well as Prince swung his guitar…

  44. snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    Well, looks like we could clearly have used the Lost in Space Robot there to call those balls and strikes from Chapman. I’m on radio, Miller says the pitchFX says that called strike 3 on de Aza was 3 inches off the plate…

  45. Macdog said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:38 pm

    I like how Krukow talked about the outfielders’ arms as De Aza looks at strikes 2 & 3.

  46. snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:40 pm

    000 with a great AB, got hit by the pitch for the RBI. About the only way he was going to get on — and he got it done. MadBum continues to amaze. First batter all year out of 57 batters that have milked a walk after being down 2 strikes to Chapman. Also, first pitcher EVER to face Chapman that got on base…

      I can see the resemblance.

  48. alleykat69 said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:42 pm

    Chapman throws so hard, a human or robot ump can’t make a accurate call..

  49. snarkk said, on September 15, 2015 at 10:43 pm

    Strickland is an enigma. The dude can look great, then in another appearance, like tonite, just comes in and leaves a steaming pile out there on the mound. He has got to get command of his slider, and find a way to put movement on that fastball. Troubling that he’s been up most of the year, yet Rags and Gardy haven’t been able to get him over the hump to avoid these stinker outings…

    I think the Giants are running on fumes these days, pitchers and position players alike. I give this squad credit for doing what they’re doing with half the starters on the DL.
    I’m running on fumes, too. G’nite Flappers…

    I drove nearby Frazier’s high school on the way home tonight, and right when he was at-bat (HBP), so of course he figures prominently at both ends (error, HR). What a nutty game.
