A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Arizona and THE MVP

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 12, 2016

Giants vs Grienke today and the one thing we have going for us is the Visual Memory Index number. Giants are at +7.54, Arizona is at -11.55. It’s no lock but that suggest the Giants hitters will be tracking the ball a little better than the D-backs hitters. So I’m cautiously optimistic tonight….

The Warriors. What can you say about this team? Mid season I started following this d-bag Cleveland fan/writer who predicted the Cavs would beat the Warriors by 10. That’s the game the Warriors beat them by 40 (or whatever it was, not gonna look it up). This dope has spent the last 4 months talking shit about “wait till the Finals…”, he was especially critical of Steph winning the MVP. Well @VernThompsonNBA is getting closer to his wish….

    OKC is flyin’ high and playin’ well; they are a tough nut for the somewhat hurt and tired Dubs.

    This related to snarkk’s 10:09:

    Based on what you have seen to date, would you ink Cueto now (or at the end of the year) to a long-term deal? If so, how many years and how much coin? Cueto is set to make 21 next year, and he can opt out after next year, too. Not sure there is a long-term deal that makes more sense than the current deal, especially for the Giants. I think you would have to be looking in the 25 mil per range. Would he take 4 at 100 with an club option for a fifth (for four years of certainty at 25 mil a year)?

      the guy allegedly just turned 30 in Feb, he’s got 1471 innings on that arm coming into tonight. A 5 year deal tacked onto next season would put his last season under contract at 2022, which he would start at age 37. Too old. To his current deal, I’d tack on two years at $23MM per, with a 3rd year club option at $24MM, or buy out at $7M. If he keeps going like now this season, that’s likely not nearly long enough in this market. I hate these long term starter deals…

        Yeah, I would be more inclined with your second option (tacking-on two with an option), and at a minor bump in $$ per year. No bueno on a five-year deal.

    Watching highlights. Greinke looks like his stuff is “up” in the zone a lot, compared to the past…

    I’m guessing that Greinke contract is going to haunt the D-Backs. So glad G’s didn’t go all that in for him.

    Switching back and forth and missed the 9th. Sounds like some fireworks between Casilla and Bochy?

    Got to look at the tape, as Mike Nolan used to say . . .

    Haven’t heard a peep about Bogut. Hopefully his adductor has adducted itself. The other guys are good, but none are nearly the presence down low that Bogut is . . .

    Casilla giving it to Bochy, post-game to the press.
    We haven’t had a clubhouse problem in a while (that we know of), so this is interesting.
    Hey Casilla, suggestion: Get people out in the 9th, and Bochy won’t come get you…

      Some things just make sense, don’t they… 🙂

      There was some kind of altercation between Romo and Dunsten in ’14 that seemed to get resolved.
      (I wonder why those two would have gotten into an altercation. Seems really odd.)
      Bochy has a firm grasp on things. He’s not going to tolerate lengthy pouting from Casiila. Casilla needs to get the butt-hurt out of his system tonight.

    Great clubhouse chemistry doesn’t mean everything is sunshine and roses all the time. It means problems get addressed, and things get worked out, ideally with mutual respect. Bochy won’t tolerate disrespect.
