Winding Down……

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 3, 2015

Here’s a lame stat to choke on while you’re eating breakfast this morning:

Only Duffy and Crawford have more HR’s at AT&T this year (7 each) than Nolan Arenado (6 in 7 games). That stat goes out to everyone who says it’s really, really hard to hit home runs at AT&T…

So where are we with Hesto Presto? Because I’m starting to think that the more expensive version of him (Leake) would be the better route to take next year. I’m kidding. Sort of.

Still can’t believe Duffy won the WM Award. And that Loo called it. 35 years, no rookies win the award. What must that say about how his teammates view him? The Duffman is a keeper……

A Flapper becomes a Clapper….

I was at the game tonight, early. Pretty good turnout for the Willie Mac Award ceremony, maybe 50% of the stands full. And Willie’s proud announcement of Duffy’s name sparked a genuine roar of approval. A bit of surprise and a lot of respect fueled that roar. We stood cheering for a long time.

    Since I’m not a sideline reporter, and since I do not watch a lot of football, I am not overly embarrassed to ask: A. Were those oxygen tanks? B. Is that standard? or C. Were they indeed playing on Mars?

    Feel kind of empty without baseball. I know, I know. There IS baseball. But not for me.

    mm, still not down with more playoff games, tho I’m sure it’s coming. Pit and Chi would not mean much travel, but how about last year?
    As a Giants fan would you have wanted 3 game playoff (with Hudson/Peavey/Vogs after Bum), with travel btw SF and Pit? Hou and NY could potentially have meant 5 days of games/travel too for this season.

    And few teams would benefit moneywise from shorter sched/more playoffs, esp the small market ones losing revenue dates.
    Another great idea I can’t see owners ever voting for.
