    thx that was pretty funny.

    I read a lot of books and newsprint still, but as for text on internet—man, the ads for every thing are just annoying.
    Even on csn site, every single article you click on has PGE vid ad (the same stupid ones you’ve seen a million times on Giants games) you have to mute before column shows up.
    cbs site stuff is the same–no matter what you click on most of the time is an ad then a vid before you can actually read what you wanted to. First thing you see is always a big FanDuel ad taking over the screen.
    So glad that’s not true here.
    Price you pay I guess.

    Jonathan and Freddy Sanchez in there together.

    I used to stick up for JS, who had a fine year over all in 2010—30+ starts 193 innings only 142 hits ERA at 3.07 and lowered WHIP to 1.23. And he did win and hit a triple in the game SF needed just to get in last day.
    But that was it for the good times. Post season wasn’t good and then everything spiraled down.
    2011 he could only throw 80 innings, the ERA went up to 4.26, walks back up to 6 per 9. Never regained anything once he left either.

    Ah yes, October 30, 2010, it was a gorgeous Saturday in North Texas. I tried like hell to get a ticket for the first ever World Series game in Arlington but no such luck. I did get my picture with the guy that played Buddy Garrity (the car dealership owner/ booster for the Dillon Panthers) from the Friday Night Lights tv show. I told him, I was in love with his daughter and he gave me a dirty look. “No, your tv daughter” played by the gorgeous Minka Kelly. He laughed and told me to “stand in line behind Derek Jeter” who was dating her at the time.

    Anyway, I ended up watching Jonathan Sanchez and the Giants lose their only World Series game from the hotel bar. But the next day, Halloween, I succeeded in making my way into the game. I guess I can tell that story tomorrow.

    Wash was managing then (schooled by Bochy), and also next year when Texas won 96 games only to lose WS to LaRussa and the Cards. That featured the f-up when LaRussa wound up bringing in the wrong guy out of the pen. Yet he’s the one credited for being a genius.

    You get so close and then blow it, everything is magnified. Felt sorry for the guy who was excellent fielding coach for A’s and then got passed over because Beane hired Bob Geren to be mgr. Retrospect maybe Wash never should have been a mgr in first place.

    Yost vs. Collins? Who do you guys like so far?

    WillieD— I know everyone appreciates no ads here. I can’t stop the few wordpress puts up. But I get several offers a year to put ads all over the place and I reject it every time. They can’t ever offer me enough guaranteed $$$$ to make it worth it for me. This place will always be just what it is: a place for true Giants fans to talk.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on October 30, 2015 at 9:57 am

      Sure i’m speaking for all of us as well as myself, but i really do appreciate that, Flav. It’s a major reason why i listen to CBC radio in the morning as the Canucks have a real public radio source which does not get infested by advertising crap which i find more disgusting than stinky gymsocks. This is in contrast with National Pubic Radio here in the states which toes the corporate line shamelessly as well as the CIA line in foreign affairs. Totally and irredeemably disgusting.

  7. zumiee said, on October 30, 2015 at 12:00 pm

    5 years ago? Somehow it kind of seems longer ago, mainly because of so much roster change during the 3-in-5. I remember almost nothing about game 3 in that Series. Jonathan Sanchez started that game? I have no memory of it.
    Burrell got some criticism in those posts that day, including from me; but he did later have an important AB in game 5. He battled Lee for 10 or 11 pitches before striking out, but that might have taken a little something out of Lee; and the next batter, Renteria, hit his huge HR.

    • alleykat69 said, on October 30, 2015 at 12:12 pm

      Burrell was banging more chicks then he was getting hits in that W/S..
      But if Pat the Bat wore down Cliff Lee with that 1 AB to set the stage for Edgar more power to him!!

  9. zumiee said, on October 30, 2015 at 12:07 pm

    My biggest memory from Game 4, believe it or not, is MadBum’s first pitch. It was a fastball for strike one, that clocked in at 95 MPH. I remember thinking: “95? This rookie might have his best stuff today.” He did.

  10. zumiee said, on October 30, 2015 at 12:10 pm

    How about Timmy with 2 wins and the Cainer with a shut-out win? Awesome.

    But who’d have thought they would both hit a wall at age 30?

    • Flavor said, on October 30, 2015 at 2:45 pm

      With the number of pitches each had thrown up till that point, it wasn’t a huge surprise. Pitchers without steroids are highly unpredictable entering their 30’s, IMO

  11. alleykat69 said, on October 30, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    Starting to wonder if that won’t happen to Syndergard& DeGrom as well.

  12. zumiee said, on October 30, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    Not that it’s a super big deal to me who the Dodgers end up getting as their manager, but this candidate was kind of out of nowhere, sort of. The Giants have some history vs. this guy, of course.

    “The Dodgers plan to interview former Angels All-Star Darin Erstad for the vacant position, per Ken Rosenthal and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
    Erstad, 41, last played in 2009, and has been managing the baseball team at the University of Nebraska, his alma mater, for the last four seasons. The Huskers have gone 139-97 (.589) in Erstad’s four years at the helm, following three years of 82-80 (.506).
    Nebraska made one NCAA Tournament appearance under Erstad, the 2014 Super Regional, its first such appearance since 2008.”

  13. chipower9 said, on October 30, 2015 at 4:06 pm

    I know many of you with love for the world’s largest republitard convention (aka KC), has this series all but over. But this series is a whisper (14 innings worth) from being 1-1. I predict the Mets find their mojo tonight. Sweep? Ain’t happening. GO METS!

  14. unca_chuck said, on October 30, 2015 at 4:17 pm

    I hear Dusty wants no part of it. Doesn’t like the way they are throwing money around apparently.

  15. unca_chuck said, on October 30, 2015 at 4:18 pm

    Hey, I’m just waiting for Steph to smoke the beard tonight.

  16. Bozo said, on October 30, 2015 at 5:49 pm

    This KC team can just flat out hit. I have to say that I’m glad we got last year’s group.

    • xoot said, on October 30, 2015 at 5:59 pm

      thor’s been squeezed in the zone and a couple of the KC hits have been lucky bloops. (And none of the mets pitchers have a LH wide-wingspan delivery that sends everything in at a nearly unhittable angle.)

  17. Bozo said, on October 30, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    Some folks say it’s better to be lucky than good. Looked to me like some hard hit balls were mixed in with those bloops and broken bat jobs, but the Met’s have also been doing some hitting and have retaken the lead.

    • xoot said, on October 30, 2015 at 6:32 pm

      the KC drives that bounced off the wall were hard hit, that’s for sure. The mets defense sure looks shaky to me. As to luck, no argument here.

  18. Bozo said, on October 30, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    Uribe.

  19. zumiee said, on October 30, 2015 at 7:31 pm

    UUU RRRBBBIIII EEE! remember when Pablo blobbed out in 2010 and Bochy put Juan U at 3B for the PS? Of course you do. Great to see Uribe step it up again.

  21. xoot said, on October 30, 2015 at 8:23 pm

    I’ve always thought that Billy Joel sucks. what the eff is going on with Neil Diamond and the Red Sox and Billy Joel and the Mets? The Giants recent attachment to Journey bothers me, too. Let’s have more Santana. (My first concert was Santana, in 68. so maybe I’m biased.)

    • zumiee said, on October 30, 2015 at 9:13 pm

      The Neil Diamond thing, I don’t get.

    • chipower9 said, on October 31, 2015 at 5:18 pm

      I dig the playing of Tony Bennett’s “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” after each home win.

  22. zumiee said, on October 30, 2015 at 9:34 pm

    Reynolds cracked me up when he said it was “critical” to get Familia an inning tonight. It was a good thing to do, but far from “critical,” in my opinion.

  23. unca_chuck said, on October 30, 2015 at 10:47 pm

    Harden came up ant-small in a game Houston was desperate to win.

    • zumiee said, on October 30, 2015 at 11:02 pm

      The Warriors seem motivated to show that last year wasn’t some kind of “fluke.” They are on a mission. They’re going to run a lot of teams right off the floor.

    I guess Tomlinson and Parker got enough MLB time this past season to be left off a prospects list. Tomlinson for sure makes the MLB roster next year, and hopefully Parker shows some of his September magic in Spring Training.

  26. willedav said, on October 31, 2015 at 7:41 am

    Thoughts on yesterday’s first pitch? cbs and yahoo site commenters pretty partisan.

    Btw Flav, before I could see the one pitch on yahoo site, 20 seconds of google android vid.
    Then before next highlight, another 12 seconds for glorious nation of B of A.

    Thx again for being real Big Guy. Much appreciated.

    • willedav said, on October 31, 2015 at 7:44 am

      Gotta admit last night I did watch the Harrison Barnes vid quite often last night.
      great rip move off the dribble from the wing and emphatic finish over Howard, the only guy who even tried to stop him. Great explosions off Warriors bench too.

    • zumiee said, on October 31, 2015 at 8:22 am

      Syndegaard didn’t like the way Escobar was digging in. Escobar practically brought a shovel out with him.

      • djloo27 said, on October 31, 2015 at 9:23 am

        lulz!

      • djloo27 said, on October 31, 2015 at 9:24 am

    • Macdog said, on October 31, 2015 at 8:30 am

      I liked Syndergaard’s comment after the game: “If they have a problem with me throwing inside, they can meet me 60 feet, 6 inches away.”

  27. unca_chuck said, on October 31, 2015 at 10:37 am

    Yeah that’s what annoys me about KC. Like “how dare they come inside on us. When we crowd the plate”

    The pitch wasn’t even. That fuckng close but for Escobar Leaning out over the plate to cover the outside.

  28. alleykat69 said, on October 31, 2015 at 1:30 pm

    In football news…
    49ers continue their fucked up ways,cutting Jarryd Hayne. Yeah he muffed a couple of punts, but he still had the capability of breaking one, and now with Hyde down,why not of seen what he could of done as the feature back, instead of a washed up Reggie Bush?
    They had nothing to lose in a lost season anyway. God this team continues to find new ways to freakin piss me off!!!

  29. zumiee said, on October 31, 2015 at 1:59 pm

    In Christine Brennan’s latest column in USA Today, she raised the hypothetical question: if it didn’t already exist, could high school football get approved these days as a new sport? She correctly says no. 7 high school players have been killed playing the sport so far this season. Many others with serious injuries.

  30. Flavor said, on October 31, 2015 at 2:00 pm

    Goff…..Sucks. Ok, that’s too extreme. But that last pick was something Kaep would throw.

    • alleykat69 said, on October 31, 2015 at 2:22 pm

      Agree Flav..
      I still wonder if he will hold up as a pro. Goff is strictly a pocket passer, not to mobile,think he’s already had a knee issue & wears a brace?Just could see him taking a beating in the pros..

    • snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 2:27 pm

      I would take Goff any day over Kap. He’ll be a good pro, very good with good coaching, and a decent line. He’s as good as Derek Carr, with more upside IMO. He’s clearly been forcing matters the last few games against top competition in the Pac12. The Bears defense cannot stop a head cold, so he’s under pressure every drive to make something happen — a Bears punt is pretty much handing at least 3 to the opposition — like today v USC …

      • Flavor said, on October 31, 2015 at 2:28 pm

        I mostly agree with this–I was just reacting to that terrible throw. But here’s the deal, do you think there’s any way in Hell the Niners could develop Goff? I don’t.

      • snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 2:36 pm

        Not with the current coaching staff. The whole staff should be sacked, Baalke, too. Start over, give a strong HC carte blache to revamp the franchise. It’s insane that the Niners essentially have no real running back available now that Hyde is down. By the way, how do you play one week with a stress fracture in your foot, then next week you’re off the active roster with that injury?…

      • chipower9 said, on October 31, 2015 at 5:21 pm

        While you are cleaning house, sack the fucking ownership, too!

  32. snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 2:40 pm

    Hey, Bears D finally stops USC! Amazing. I said a few weeks ago here that I was hoping for no more than 3 Pac12 losses for the Bears. Well, today is looking like #3, unless they can make the comeback. If they lose today, with this defense really starting to crater in the second half of the season, I’m hoping they can hold it to 4 Pac 12 losses…

    • Flavor said, on October 31, 2015 at 2:49 pm

      Bears seem to have stalled this year while the Cardinal are soaring. Stanford could easily find themselves in the College Football Playoff if they run the table (which they could do).

      • snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 2:56 pm

        Stanfoo has beaucoup talent across both sides of the ball, with a studly OLine. Cal’s offense is good, but as usual, the defense is terrible, though improved. Bears have had a poor to fair defense, especially bad in the backfield, for a decade…

      • Flavor said, on October 31, 2015 at 3:13 pm

        Cal’s WR’s seem to be loose cannons running all over the place. Gotta run tighter routes.

      • chipower9 said, on October 31, 2015 at 6:18 pm

        I can definitely see the possibility of Stanford in the playoffs.

  33. zumiee said, on October 31, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    Righetti, at 16 years, is the longest-serving pitching coach in MLB. That’s cool.

    • zumiee said, on October 31, 2015 at 3:05 pm

      I’m not sure where Bochy ranks with current managers in length of term. It’s got to be real high.

  34. snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 3:04 pm

    There’s a great pass for Goff, then the TD. Kap wouldn’t have gotten that done. If the Bears could have stopped SC even a little this afternoon, the Bears would be ahead. They’ve played SC pretty much to a standstill, yet giving them about a 6 minute time of possession advantage…

  35. snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 3:11 pm

    Ending of the game shows that the Cal defense just cannot get it done against top competition, even when they know the oppo is going to run the ball. Hence, Goff and offense are constantly pressurized to score every drive…

    • Flavor said, on October 31, 2015 at 3:15 pm

      Come on. USC didn’t score in the 4th Q and the D only gave up 27. In college that’s nothing. They hardly had to score, or feel pressured to score, *every drive*.

  36. snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    USC time of possession in the end — 11 minutes more than Cal = huge. Yet, total yardage virtually the same. That’s the Cal defense being unable to make USC punt the ball on a consistent basis. Cut that TOP differential in half, Bears probably win the game with its high octane offense…

    Looking for the Mets to tie this series up tonight. Really want the NL to keep the title. BTW, the WSeries format 2-3-2 seems not right — NBA and NHL use 2-2-1-1-1— which IMO is more fair. The home field advantage should be for the last game 7, if there is one. I get the travel difficulty, but I like the competitive balance of the game format without 3 in the middle…

      Kind of strange that the “road” team gets 3 out of the first 5 at home. The NBA was 2-3-2 for quite a while I think (not sure). Didn’t realize they went back to the old format…

    Wow, Rios forgot how many outs.

    Go Mets!

    I watched some of Cal vs. UCLA, and they couldn’t score until they were way behind. Today, same thing…offense didn’t wake up until was too late. Should lick the Beavers to get bowl eligible but that’s it.
    And hey nothing wrong with that at all. But…

    I wish Goff would stay another year. He’d be a smarter player with better idea what it takes to win vs. good teams. Hopefully D and running game would add depth, lines might get better Dykes continues to recruit.
    Hogan is great example of what you can do with a senior QB—they are just calmer and smarter, make fewer mistakes and keep teammates focused and ready.

    Wow Harbs won one he maybe shouldn’t have. Unbelievable decision by Minnesota coach:
    down 3 from the 1 yd line with 2 seconds left, eschews FG to try and run it in…and fails.

    On cbs site is vid highlight of all 28 points Steph Curry scored…in the 3rd Q vs. NO on his way to 53.
    Beauty of a behind back dribble cross over for a lay up plus 3s over the Brow. Yeow!

    Don’t be surprised if the Mets make some noise in the 9th…

    Cespedes price tag is plummeting…

      Another Merkle’s Boner.

    • snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 11:55 pm

      I’ll take Cespedes at a reduced price, no problem…

    Warriors game is being replayed on Comcast.

      Thx 3 Q on right now.

      • willedav said, on October 31, 2015 at 9:55 pm

        haha there it is at 1:35 mark behind the back move around Babbitt for a layup and then a 4 pt play to top off 28 for a quarter.

  47. djloo27 said, on October 31, 2015 at 9:17 pm

    Well get some rest, fellas. You west coast guys don’t wanna miss Lions-Chiefs at 6:30 AM tomorrow…

    • Macdog said, on October 31, 2015 at 10:52 pm

      The extra hour of sleep should help. I think both teams have a combined three playoff victories since the merger.

  48. Flavor said, on October 31, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    Um….about that “run the table” comment from earlier today…..

  49. Macdog said, on October 31, 2015 at 11:03 pm

    Hey Flav, did you like that run on 3rd-and-goal from the 4?

  50. snarkk said, on October 31, 2015 at 11:13 pm

    Steph Curry with 53 tonight in New Orleans. Is Steph the new Joe Montana?…

    wide right burned bobby Bowden a few times.
    saved Shaw’s booty tonight.
    over/under 59.5 so some gamblers pretty pissed too.

  53. alleykat69 said, on October 31, 2015 at 11:24 pm

    Yeah no shit Macdog.
    Crazy last minute in this game, but not as unbelievable as Miami’s 8 laterals final play to beat Duke ..

  54. Carstie Clausen said, on November 1, 2015 at 8:52 am

    Seems like the Mets sacrificed infield defense for a bit more pop in the lineup. It cost them last night. Royals are similar to the Giants in that they are very opportunistic and tend to make their breaks. Again, it was the conga-line defeating the big-bopper offense of the Noo Yawkahs.

    • Bozo said, on November 1, 2015 at 10:01 am

      Agreed. I thought this was kind of a telling quote that David Wright made about the Royals, “They just keep coming,”

  55. mrsprtdude said, on November 1, 2015 at 9:36 am

    I went to game 2 2010. 8th inning scoring 7 runs was so crazy in a tense battle. All the relief of going up 2-0 vs 1-1 and going back to Texas. Long time SF fans had a small bit of “are we going to blow this again”. It was all released in that inning.
    I can’t imagine a stadium ever being loader for such a long time. I’m sure Ishi homer was louder, but that 2010 inning with all the walks and build up of tension the roaring lasted 15-20 minutes…SOOO much fun to recall it. Thanks Craig

      Great post.

    Just saw ACC suspended entire officiating crew 2 games for “numerous errors” (apparently 4 total) after Miami Duke game. Even yesterday commentators on mid game shows ESPN said #1 knee was down and there was at least one illegal block.

    Wonder if Detroit fans would trade entire team for something Brits have.
    2 games over there and fans get Jacksonville-Buffalo and KC-Det. Trying to grow the game or contract it?

    • willedav said, on November 1, 2015 at 10:23 am

      Didn’t the crew spend 9 minutes looking at replays after play ended?
      Wtf? I realize there are set of rules of what can be reviewed/changed, but dang.

  57. snarkk said, on November 1, 2015 at 11:06 am

    That play had 3 or more reasons why it should have been called back. Guy’s knee was down before he lateraled, two blatant clips, and one more that could have been called. There should be a rule that if the last play determines the winner of the game, EVERYTHING in that play is reviewable…
