True Love

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 19, 2016

I don’t know how to say this, but I think I’m falling in love with Johnny Cueto. The long, flowing locks. The shimy that makes me all tingly inside. The complete games. He’s got it all, baby.

And he’s ours. He’s AAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL ours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

60 percent train keeps on rolling today with Smargy.

    Joe Medwick?

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 8:55 pm

      No SD

  2. James said, on May 19, 2016 at 8:54 pm

    I remember a few names from the 70s — Caldwell?

    • Macdog said, on May 19, 2016 at 8:55 pm

      Yes! Notorious Yanks killer. The third one is tough.

      • sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 8:56 pm

        Nice pull, James!

  3. Macdog said, on May 19, 2016 at 8:54 pm

    19 in a row set down by Smarj, bullpen better not eff this up.

  4. unca_chuck said, on May 19, 2016 at 8:55 pm

    Clean inning? Hah! Fuck. Why isn;t Smarge in there?

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 8:57 pm

      Good question.

  5. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 8:57 pm

    To recap . . . Zum got Gehrig, who did it twice. Two more???? One of them did it 3 times and the other did it 2 times.

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:01 pm

      Kiner? I’m just grasping on that one.

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:01 pm

        No

      • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:03 pm

        Snider?

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:03 pm

        No.

      • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:05 pm

        Matthews?

  6. James said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:06 pm

    Aaron?

  7. djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    Mize?

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:08 pm

      Ta da . . . Loo got it. Now, who is the other dude who did it 3 times?

      • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:11 pm

        It was a stab.

  8. alleykat69 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    Mac dog,
    Mike Willis??

    • Macdog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:10 pm

      Yes! Outstanding!

      • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:11 pm

        No recollection of that one…

  9. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:08 pm

    No. Another hint – He was a Giant when he accomplished this.

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:11 pm

      Irvin?

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:11 pm

        No Zum, Mize was a Giant when he did it.

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:12 pm

        In fact, both times he accomplished the feat he was a Giant . . . 1947 and 48 I think.

    • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:16 pm

      I bet it was the guy that held up a liquor store. Forgot his name…

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:21 pm

        Lulz

      • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:45 pm

        I was thinking of Hank Thompson…

  10. Bozo said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:08 pm

    Eight game streak, seven game road sweep. Sweet.

  11. Macdog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:09 pm

    An unimpressive 8th straight win!

    • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:12 pm

      Another stinker…

  12. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:11 pm

    Loo, is that unimpressive winning streak at least becoming mildly interesting?

    • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:14 pm

      Headline suggestion: Eight is En-UGH!

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:16 pm

        I hope not.

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:17 pm

        straight outta Macdog’s playbook!!

  13. pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:11 pm

    I’ve been a huge supporter of Casilla, but, man, listening to Krukow there educated me. Casilla shook off Posey, to throw curves. Kruk said curves diminish: first is your best, the fifth in a row will be the worst. Panik saved Casilla from his own stubborn dumbness.

    • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:13 pm

      I wish someone would do that for me…

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:16 pm

        hire someone…at hourly rates

  14. pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:15 pm

    See that graphic? 2nd time the Giants ever won all games on a roadtrip of 7 or more games. The last time? 1913, when my dad was born. (Christy Matthewson won 3 in that stretch, said Kuiper.).

  15. zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:15 pm

    Angels take a 5-4 lead over the Dodgers.

  16. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:18 pm

    Pawlie should know the last player.

    • pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:20 pm

      I thought you named them all. Are you saying Mays??!!???

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:21 pm

        No, Mays struck out a bit too much. This player did it 3 times in the 50s. The Giant reference was to Mize who played with us in the late 40s.

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:26 pm

        and not Musial…..hmmmm….Ernie Banks? Jackie Robinson?

  17. pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:18 pm

    wasn’t Mike Caldwell originally a Giant?

    • James said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:22 pm

      Padre, I think.

    • sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:22 pm

      A Pad, then a Giant I think

    • Macdog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:25 pm

      I looked it up: Traded by Padres to Giants for Bernie Williams . . . and Willie McCovey.

  18. pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:23 pm

    Stripling was stifled, Edith.

  19. sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    Hornsby?

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:26 pm

      No SD . . . Not certain, but Hornsby played in the early 1910s and 1920s

  20. unca_chuck said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:25 pm

    6-4 Timmies over Dogs.

  21. sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:26 pm

    Yogi?

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:27 pm

      No, good guess though because Yogi had an excellent eye (good contact hitter).

  22. pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:28 pm

    Off-topic: I am halfway through Pitching Around Fidel by S.L. Price. Superb. Excellent writer. I’m sure zumiee and a few others read it.

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:29 pm

      Ahh Fidel. Good baseball player. Lousy dictator.

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:32 pm

      I haven’t gotten to it yet. I was waiting to see if my local library is going to get it.

  23. pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:29 pm

    Marty Marion?

  24. sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:30 pm

    Gil Hodges?

    Anyone remember SL Price when he was with the Sacramento Bee? You could tell he was going to be a good one

    • pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:31 pm

      was he? He is a heckuva writer, he really is.

  25. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    Marion no, Hodges no.

  26. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:32 pm

    Clue – This guy had muscles before gyms were vogue.

    • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:33 pm

      Big Klu?

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:34 pm

        Loo with the metal trap mind does it again! Yep, Ted Kluszewski

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:35 pm

        Ted Klu always had no shirt or rolled his sleeves up to show his muscles. His name even sounded muscular.

  27. unca_chuck said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    Rusty Stab?

  28. blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    No unca . . . Think 1950s.

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:35 pm

      Klewzinski? However his name is spelled.

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:36 pm

        You got it too Zum

      • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:41 pm

        Ah, Pawlie got it at the same moment, too!

    • unca_chuck said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:36 pm

      Someone said stab. My attempt at lame humor.

  29. pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    Robinson? Banks? As John Charles Daly used to say on What’s My Line? we’re going to flip the cards over and give you the answer. did Loo even answer his? I’m so confused. And sober too.

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:35 pm

      Big Klu Pawlie. I would have bet a million dollars you would have known that, as he did it in the 1950s.

      • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:36 pm

        I got it! Timestamp!

      • pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:41 pm

        I actually remember him much more for his arms more than his stats, so when you gave the muscle hint, sure (not that I said it).

      • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:43 pm

        Hard to believe that he had such a good eye. Remember, this has only been done a total of 10 times (insofar as 40 or more bombs and having less SOs).

    • sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:37 pm

      Cory Lidle v Ted Lilly
      Mark Mulder v Mike Mussina
      Sterling Hitchcock v Erik Hijus

      ..I will take this knowledge to the grave with me

      • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:04 pm

        I hope that’s not for a long time and you at least take it to a few bars first…

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:45 pm

      He actually tore off his sleeves because it restricted his swing. The Reds organization was pissed when he did it.

  30. zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:34 pm

    7-4 Angels.

  31. unca_chuck said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:36 pm

    Mantle? No one said that?

    Timmies up 7-4

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:37 pm

      Are you kidding? He’s already on the Angels roster?

      • sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:38 pm

        Now the Angels have signed Mickey Mantle???

        Too many strikeouts, Chuck

      • unca_chuck said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:39 pm

        Well, they signed him. He passed his physical.

    • pawliekokonuts said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:39 pm

      Mantle struck out too much. I love how you’ve coined “Timmies.” G’night, girls. And to TedSpe.

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:43 pm

      Mantle was huge striker outer for his era.

  32. unca_chuck said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:38 pm

    Los Teal Tiburones smoked the Blues tonight . . .

  33. zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:45 pm

    Dang, I just saw that Loo got Klu first. My timestamp now rendered less meaningful. 🙂

    • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:50 pm

      The muscle “klu” was a gimme…

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:51 pm

      Yes, but you were typing and already had the answer in your brain housing unit. Who knows? Perhaps you thought of it before Loo, but you were in the bathroom (or elsewhere) and then making your way towards your laptop or PC . . . Unbeknownst to you, Loo had already pressed the “Post Comment” button. A lot of “ifs” I know, but theoretically possible.

      • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:03 pm

        Nope….the hint was the giveaway.

  34. James said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    After looking up Aaron’s stats, I’m going to praise myself with a “Good guess!”

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:52 pm

      Undoubtedly deserves a pat on the back. 🙂

      • James said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:58 pm

        I really wanted to drop Helton’s name, but knew there was no way you would have asked the question if he’d been a correct answer 🙂

    • sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:55 pm

      Plus, you got Mike Caldwell going for you. Caldwell had a thing where, if a guy homered off of him, he would intently stare at him the entire time he ran the bases.

      • James said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:05 pm

        He was the ace of the first really crummy Giants team I followed an entire season. I resented his post-Giants success.

  35. sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    …and lost in all of the commotion was a great call by alleycat coming up with Mike Willis!

  36. sandog said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:04 pm

    The 3 Mikes were all lefties. Mike Willis went 7-21 over the course of his career. The Guidry game was a spot start and the only complete game of his career.
    Great trivia tonight fellas…

  37. zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:15 pm

    Grandal hitting .202 now. Ouch.

  38. zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:16 pm

    Angels win!

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:18 pm

      Our division lead is at 3 1/2 games.

      • djloo27 said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:21 pm

        Outta nowhere…

  39. Macdog said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:19 pm

    Good news: Dodgers at .500 after losing again to Angels.

    Bad news: They get the Padres next.

    • zumiee said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:22 pm

      And we get them again next week. 🙂

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:24 pm

      Could be good news – They took 2 out of 3 from the Bums in their first series back in April and they did it in the Dodgers yard.

      • Macdog said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:28 pm

        Forgot that one. All I remembered was the three shutouts to start the season.

    • blade3colorado said, on May 19, 2016 at 10:32 pm

      Yeah, they actually sort of beat the Dodgers soundly in 2 of the games and lost 1-0 in the other one. This division as a whole is much more competitive than it was last season IMO.

  40. mrsprtdude said, on May 19, 2016 at 11:33 pm

    Fantastic road trip. I’m thinking we win 2/3 from the Cubbies. Cain is slowly starting to turn it around. Takes another big step Saturday.
