New Pitcher + Heisman Trophy Winner

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on December 6, 2015

Not news anymore, but we got Smardge. Gonna have to find a good nickname for him. I’m convinced there’s no set way to spell it. So I’m not going to spend any time learning it.

Heisman Trophy Winner: Christian McCaffrey. Of course, because of bias and idiocy he probably won’t actually win it. I know the argument against over valuing all purpose yards but in college, in this context, it should be a big deal. He didn’t break some dumbass record. He broke Barry Sanders record. Nearly 3,500 yards. If that doesn’t get appreciated, ESPECIALLY AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL, then the award is a joke.

    well, he ran for one, caught one and threw for a TD last night in the conference champ game (not vs. cupcake state), hella accomplishment. Had a nice punt return too and has had great KO returns this season while being main focus of running game. What else is he supposed to do, line the field before the game?

    Check out Blade’s post end of thread this AM on Tribe and their young pitching. They are another team that would be a fit for Belt in a trade and could help SF on SP hunt.
    Z just seems like a curious not to mention expensive fit for Giants…I’d rather get younger and more athletic, unless Giants think Panik is next Glass or Scut.

    • giants54 said, on December 6, 2015 at 9:20 am

      Last report I saw was Clev wanted Panik AND Belt for Carassco. That’s insane. Just go buy a friggn starter and keep thd GG infield intact.

      • blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 9:51 am

        Giants wont trade Panik or Duffy. Belt’s another story. Read between the lines and there is circumstantial evidence (e.g., why did they give Crawford a new long term contract and not Belt?) that leads me to believe they are at least thinking about getting rid of him.

    What’s the bias?

    • willedav said, on December 6, 2015 at 9:25 am

      mm, Stanford played I think 7 night games on left coast, so with all the 10 PM starts maybe not much of the country watched this guy live for 3 hours. Even yesterday after Bama game ended more eyes probably tuned into the ACC Big Ten games being played at same time.

      • Macdog said, on December 6, 2015 at 9:34 am

        If it’s the usual whining about east coast bias, there’s this: Since 2002, the Pac-12 has had more Heisman winners (4) than any other conference, including Oregon QB Marcus Mariota last year. And I’m pretty sure Oregon played more than its share of night games last season.

    I guess I’m glad that we’re in the same Division as San Diego, otherwise we’d be hearing rumblings about SF trading for Shields. Although…

    • blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 9:48 am

      For the reason you stated John, it’s doubtful the Padres would trade with a division rival, albeit, it’s not precedence. Just me, but I think teams are going to start knocking on the Padres door about Shields, especially after Cueto is gone. In short, he will be a bargain, when teams find out the delusional numbers for Leake, et. al., are going to ask. Believe me, Shields contract will look like a bargain. Couple that with the Padres seemingly return to their penny pinching ways – he’s gone in my opinion and I hope the Giants consider him. Other than an elevated HR rate last season, Shields didn’t do half bad. Also, those 217 SOs in 212 innings were superb in my opinion.

      • Macdog said, on December 6, 2015 at 9:52 am

        There was that Padres-Dodgers trade for Kemp last year, so, hey, anything’s possible.

      • blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 9:52 am

        Exactly.

  4. blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:01 am

    One other thing, as I said a few days ago about the Giants needing to act fast after the Greinke signing went down – Which fortunately they did, with the Alphabet signing the next day – they need to move fast again. If the Giants are thinking abut Cueto, they should move on, as Cueto and his agent smell blood. Believe me, they are going to soak the Dodgers or another team for big coin. Giants need to really consider a trade for Shields, Carrasco, or Salazar or signing one of the lesser lights, such as Iwakuma or Kennedy. The last two guys demands will only go up after Cueto is signed.

    • willedav said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:20 am

      Plus, Pads would likely be interested in Belt too. They dumped Alonso and Solarte, while a good hitter, isn’t really a 1b either. Belt would improve their IF defense and if he can maintain .800 OPS be a decent and cheaper replacement in middle order for J Up, whom they likely lose too.
      Shields playing for Pads brings up the Ralph Kiner/Branch Rickey quote comparison too. They’re going nowhere, with him and have many other needs.

      I’d just as soon keep Belt, but I do agree with others that he’s replaceable and might fit in with other teams for a trade to fill different need.

      • pawliekokonuts said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:22 am

        yeah, I always love that Kiner-Rickey story, which Kiner told and retold, as have I.

  5. pawliekokonuts said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:20 am

    I’m not excited about getting Eyechart, nor am I disgruntled. More will be revealed. I am confident. Even year. It’ll put a hex on all. And if Geinke beats the Dodgers a few times, all to the good.

    • blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:31 am

      I think I read where he will play them at least 4, possibly 5 times next season. If he wins the majority of them, the fans will be even more upset with Friedman and the rest of the Dodger brain trust.

  6. alleykat69 said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:32 am

    The one thing I’ve always liked about Big Game James( regular season) is his goddam durability 9 straight 200 + innings!
    So yes I could be onboard for him as you would have 3 pitchers( crossing fingers/no injuries)giving you 200 plus innings with Undertaker,Mullet(Randy Johnson Right Hander)and Copper Shields( old restaraunt I used to go to) inning eater starters=more rested BP in the dog days of summer!!

  7. snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:34 am

    If you guys get your wish and Sabes trades Belt for whomever, then who plays first? And, get ready for a few more throwing errors from Craw and the rest of the infield…

    • blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:38 am

      Dunno. However, 1st base is one of those positions where you can move someone in-house to the position. Buy them a 1st baseman’s glove, give them an hour of practice and presto! OK, a little bit of mirth there . . . However, we’ve all discussed Posey moving there. Shit, one of those new kids (Parker) could play there.

      I only know that Belt is on concussion #3 and if he has another one, he’s probably out of the game. Permanently.

  8. Irish Kevin said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:56 am

    This is the thing with the Giants, they are gun shy with signing due to the bust named Zito, plus all the money they threw at BB. There is just no way they will do that again. The Giants are trying to get good deals and hope in time that their farm teams produce another Bum, Cain, Timmy. And who can blame them really. 3 in 5 will do that to you.

    • Irish Kevin said, on December 6, 2015 at 10:58 am

      Oh and it is not complacency, it is there belief in their farm system

      • snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 11:06 am

        It’s about time some of these young arms, supposed future aces, show up and produce. Heston was on nobody’s radar as a prospect, yet put in a solid half season, and a no hitter. That tells me the Giants evaluation of pitching talent can be off, so they should stop babying these young arms that have been around a couple of years, throw them into the fire and see who flourishes, and who does not. Crawford was single A player who got tossed to the wolves, and sucked for a couple of months, until he found his sea legs. Pitchers/infielders are different, but lets see these rumored young aces put to use…

  9. Irish Kevin said, on December 6, 2015 at 11:11 am

    Exactly Snarkk.

    • alleykat69 said, on December 6, 2015 at 11:53 am

      With you Snarkk&Kevin that it’s time to unleash hell with some of these young arms!!
      Problem is as always the management Sabes/Evans and the skipper just don’t have the trust in these guys like Blackburn, Beede,Mejia,Blach, etc etc, which frustrates us to no end.
      They jumped on the Alphabet guy though knowing you will get the 200 innings out of him where your not sure if the young guns can hold up.
      Heston was a great shot in the arm, like you said, pitched great early, no hitter, then got arm weary , never throwing that amount of innings before, but if anything I see him as our Petit replacement as the long guy out of the pen, so that’s a good thing.
      Really like another lefty starter to balance out the rotation but Kazmir is to old and I feel will break down during the season..
      Screw it…. Blow some cheese at Cespedes Now!!!Want that Power Bat!!
      The usual downgrade but not bad options Gordon? are Heyward? Both Gold Glovers/Cespedes has one too,more for that Bazooka arm then glove!

    Mac makes a good point earlier, but Clemson and Bama have been at forefront of college ball all season and deservedly so, while Stanford and rest of Pac12 have not. Other than last week vs. ND, no team really earth shattering to see there.
    Just don’t think anyone east of Miss R stays up til 1 or 2 AM to watch McCaffrey

    Earlier today NIners radio guys were making comps btw Gabbert and early Alex Smith vs. Smith now.
    Doesn’t look half bad today and making things happen for them right now, on the road.

    Mr. Alex is in town today for imp match up vs. Raiders in latest version of long storied rivals. Each team needs this one so should be great matchup. Raiders have to play GB plus go at Denver and then final game at KC so they can’t afford an L today.

    • Flavor said, on December 6, 2015 at 11:36 am

      exactly. And before yesterday’s game, ESPN did a spot on the Heisman favorites and they listed only 3 players that didn’t include McCaffrey. And the VERY END of the spot one guy mentioned McCaffrey in passing saying “you probably have to throw him in the mix too”.

  11. pawliekokonuts said, on December 6, 2015 at 11:30 am

    If I complained about the money Sandoval got for his stats, I should do the same regarding Smarmadarpajia. He ain’t really that great.

    • Flavor said, on December 6, 2015 at 11:34 am

      Samarg has very good stuff. He’s going to get better pitching in our park, too

      • snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 12:16 pm

        Rags was a hard thrower. He should be able to get Samardxxxx to get the most out of his stuff. I’d take this guy over Leake. Leake did nothing to impress me…

      • Bozo said, on December 6, 2015 at 12:29 pm

        A bit better fielding team should help his stats as well.

      Somebody will throw some cheddar his way. I’d like to see the Giants do it. What’s the deal with him in the clubhouse Loo? I didn’t see anything out here in the media that was a negative in that respect for the Mets…

      • djloo27 said, on December 6, 2015 at 12:56 pm

        I didn’t hear about any clubhouse issues, Snarkk. They say he’s obsessed with golf. Plays like every day…

    • blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 12:18 pm

      According to ESPN’s J. Stark (after interviewing MLB executives) . . . Dec. 9th is the earliest he will be signed.

      PLAYER EARLIEST DATE LATEST DATE AVG. DATE
      Johnny Cueto Dec. 9 Jan. 12 Dec. 18
      Scott Kazmir Dec. 8 Jan. 28 Dec. 30

      • snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 12:25 pm

        I like Stark, but that was pretty much a bunch of conjecture, he needed a content column. Cespedes possible to SF he says. That probably means no chance in hell the Giants take him. I wish Sabes would pull out that 5 for 90 contract again from his laptop and put Cespedes’ name on it. I’d do that in a heartbeat, and Blanco can come off the bench. They’ve absolutely got to get another OFer to upgrade that part of the LU. The infield is set — if Belt gets traded, you guys that want him gone assume we’re covered there — somehow…

      • blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 12:57 pm

        Of course it was conjecture – all of ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS, etc., is conjecture insofar as Hot Stove season is concerned. He has editors to please; deadlines to meet; and, probably a hot date tonight.

    • willedav said, on December 6, 2015 at 1:34 pm

      yeah pretty amazing, game nobody wanted to win. Right after Niners guy with DB hands dropped the sure int at Bears 30. D was tough even in that 3rd Q they were on field whole time.

      Just flipped over and sure enough Alex Smith runs into end zone from 5 out tying game at 7-7.

    • snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 1:34 pm

      Niners are the definition of a bad team. So, bad, they win a meaningless game to drop lower in the draft line for Goff…

  14. giants54 said, on December 6, 2015 at 1:46 pm

    They may not need a QB now. Gabbert looks plenty capable. Looking like a shrewd pickup by the hapless 49ers. Like to see what he can do with an OL, a good OC and anything resembling a running threat.

    • snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 1:54 pm

      They need a QB in the draft. They have no back up. Gabbert is serviceable, but he needs competition. He’s not talented enough to ever lead them to anything meaningful…

      • giants54 said, on December 6, 2015 at 3:37 pm

        I think it’s premature to say. He came out of college as a top rated QB. Think he landed in a shitty system and was injured a lot. I would draft a QB, but not in 1-2 rd. They have too many other needs like OL, LB…DB.

      • alleykat69 said, on December 6, 2015 at 3:49 pm

      Chapman? The last thing I thought they needed was a closer. I still think the Astros get Chapman.

    • snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 3:45 pm

      I’m not big on Chapman. A guy that throws 101 can’t be too far away from a TJ surgery, can he?…

      • blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 3:54 pm

        Not too worried about him. The Giants owned him if I recall correctly. Seems to walk a lot of batters.

      • alleykat69 said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:07 pm

        I’d take that heat all year long.
        Chapman topped out at 104mph, threw 62 of the fastest seek missiles last year between 102 to 104.. Makes Casilla’s look like Timmy’s FB !
        What did he finish at something like 116K’s in 65? Innings, that’s some serious punch outs ..

    • xoot said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:01 pm

      Chapman’s fairly smooth mechanics and his sparing use of the slider seem to make him pretty durable for a 100+ mph guy. (75.5% FB, 16.8% SL & 7.6% CH last year, according to fangraphs.) I’d love to see him in the Giants pen, but the price would be Belt plus 3 or 4 of the top prospects. No.

      • xoot said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:06 pm

        Chapman’s BBs have diminished. I was at the ballpark in 2014 when Cueto and Chapman shut down the Giants, mid season or so. Chapman blew everyone away. The scoreboard couldn’t keep up with the speed. Everything over 99 mph resulted in a black screen. Maybe just a monitor issue, but it was eerie. Bottom line: he appears to be improving. Could blow up, that’s true.

  16. blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    These ex-Flappers (all riff raff) are predicting these free agent signings and trades:

    • snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:36 pm

      The Flappers here that pay attention to the players have as good or better ideas about player moves than these so-called experts as ESPN or wherever. Whoa, the Dodgers will trade Puig for a pitcher. That’s going out on a limb by Schoenfeld, isn’t it? I like musing about moves and hot stove talk, but sometimes these Web writers are just throwing crap on the wall worse than I do. I like Stark, as I’ve said often before, and not least because he respects and talks up the Giants a lot…

  17. zumiee said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    I don’t really get the Dodgers signing Utley for one season. It seems like they’re heading for a lot of their position players to end up with a lot of DL time next season.
    And whatever they replace Greinke with is a step down, obviously. Greinke was 51-15 for the Dodgers over the 3 seasons.
    If they go after Chapman, they have to sell Chapman or Janson on being the 8th inning guy. That’s a potential problem.
    Trading away Gordon is looking like a real bad move. Trading Kemp has turned out to be more of a meh.

  18. blade3colorado said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:27 pm

    AK, I would take Chapman too, but for the Dodgers that’s stupid IMO. It just doesn’t make sense to me with the Bums having Jansen. In fact, as Zumiee alluded to – this is the last thing that promotes Kumbaya in the Dodger locker room. I don’t see Jansen putting up with an 8th inning role. In fact, I predict he asks for a trade, i.e., his next contract takes a big hit if he’s pitching in the 8th inning.

    • zumiee said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:36 pm

      That’s the thing. Even if a closer isn’t pitching super great, he’s still going to usually rack up a lot of saves, if his team is a good team. And the number of saves will help pull in a much bigger contract.

    • snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:37 pm

      Agreed, if you have two closers, one has to take the 8th inning spot, or demand to get moved…

    • zumiee said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:40 pm

      You can visualize an 8th inning guy who’s pitching pretty well, but he flubs one time and gives up a bad inning, with a bunch of earned runs scored, and now he’s screwed. He’s got to battle for months to get that ERA down AND he’s getting no saves. He can feel millions of dollars fizzling away from him. I could see a guy copping a bad attitude about that, if he thinks he should be closing.

  19. snarkk said, on December 6, 2015 at 4:47 pm

    Cot’s has Romo earning $8 or $9 million in 2016, depending on their details. Whatever it is, that’s a lot of coin, and the guy is a FA in 2017. I’d be up for trading his ass this off season, alone or part of a package, before that elbow goes south, or his slider gets out of whack again. After he did well the latter half of 2015 — I doubt his perceived value will get much better than now. Let one of the young gun Pen guys take his place in 2016 rather than 2017. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aB2pke7WsGjlRiEySz4lQfGlfd3a9TdMOAHONOWsgGA/pub?output=html

  21. zumiee said, on December 6, 2015 at 5:01 pm

    Well, I’ll poke some more at this Utley deal. Heyman says it will be for $7 million. Utley hit .212 last year. OBP was .286. OPS was .629. He did hit 8 HRs. I’m going to assume his range on defense has diminished. He turns 37 next season. That’s a big drop-off, overall, from Kendrick. I’m assuming they’re signing Utley to be the starter for one season, with the hopes they can find their own Panik amongst their prospects.

      “he will incur forfeiture of the Dodgers’ first-round Draft pick because he rejected a qualifying offer from the Mariners. He was 9-5 with a career-high 3.54 ERA in 2015, and he will be 35 years old next season.”

    I nominate My Little Smarjie as the nickname we adopt, per DjLoo, though you gotta be old to get the joke of it.

      I second the nomination…

      Sadly, I’m old enough to remember that show, Bob Cummings, Alice from Brady Bunch, right? Good nicknmame. …. I was leaning toward Large Smarge. Don’t have to be too old to remember that one…

      I don’t know. My recollection of little margie isn’t all that excited. On the other hand, the Lady Billingsley nickname did have a kick. I saw this photo recently. Despite the clothing restrictions of the day, BB’s breasts played a prominent role on the show.

    My Lil Smarjie is still too hard to spell and/or remember, especially since I don’t know what the fuck it is. I’m going with “Smardge” till someone gives me a better one. But by all means, use your own and run with it. I support you!

      Download and post the Hawaiian photo of you from FB. Now, that is hilarious.

    Simpsons just showed up on the box. Marge is taken. Maybe it would be wise to wait on rzdija. How long did it take Zicasso to become Zits?

    Well, oops, I knew after my previous post about the show My Little Margie that I was confusing it with a different show around that same era, the Bob Cummings Show, or Love That Bob or whatever it was called. Man, look at that stuff that those of us born in the ’50s (or earlier) were “brought up on”: Father Knows Best, Leave it to Beaver, My Little Margie, Love That Bob… Which is why watching Mad Men for awhile was a bit of a kick. Had forgotten how everyone smoked ciggies and the women all wore torpedo tit bras. Hey, thank god for Mr. Ed, no force-fed role models there…

    Dubs 12-0 road start to the season, tying ’70 Knicks for best start on the road, all time. Now at 26 straight wins including last season. Curry is ridiculous – 32 footers, running bank shots, floaters — they all go in. I wouldn’t even say now, that I think about it, that he’s renewed my interest in the NBA, because most of the NBA games still really suck. He’s renewed my interest in basketball, and in witnessing individual sporting accomplishment. The guy’s talent is surreal. Nobody can touch his talent level at shooting long distance, handling the ball, or taking over a game. LeBron is a distant second…
