One is All You Need

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 24, 2016

Jack Black told us that when discussing cock push ups. Also, a great man once told me “We score we win” and his wisdom came to pass once again last night. I think Snarkk brought up a good point last night about the weather. It’s been unseasonably cool this year and cold weather absolutely contributes to less offense. Of course, it’s not like we’re living in Yakutsk so a little more offense would be expected. But we are scoring more than the other team and that’s ALL that matters.

Smarge for the win today and then……

    Duffy has turned into a damn good third baseman. Good glove, feet and a strong, accurate arm.

    • chipower9 said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:44 pm

      Yep…since day one he has reminded me of Bill Mueller. I like the kid a lot, even with his suckage at the plate of late.

    That overturn on the safe call for the Kemp triple is Exhibit A to support use of replay. On the close plays, the umps are basically guessing…

    • zumiee said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:41 pm

      Yep.

    • Lurker John said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:43 pm

      Absolutely.

  3. zumiee said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    Duffy finally hurt that Padre shift.

  4. snarkk said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    Ok, bases loaded for SF , no out. We’re in deep doo doo now… 😉

  5. Lurker John said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:45 pm

    Yeah baby!

    Did we sign Kemp and I missed it. The dude has been playing a couple of great games for us.

    • Lurker John said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:51 pm

      He looks like a cow moving around out there. Hard to believe he was once a good CF.

  7. Lurker John said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    That kid is fucking strong. Wow.

  8. Bozo said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    Big fly by Parker.

  9. zumiee said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    OK, I could be wrong about Parker. Maybe. 🙂

  10. chipower9 said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    Holy shit, stepped away for a few minutes and they fired up the damned conga line. If Parker can ever find some consistency at the plate, the kid is going to be really good.

  11. alleykat69 said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:49 pm

    Shit that kid Jarret Parker sure has Roy Hobbs power!
    That was a bomb with leather exploding off of the ball!!!

  12. zumiee said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:52 pm

    That bunt his first time up was, to put it bluntly, idiotic. He knows that now.

  13. alleykat69 said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    Geez this kid Hessler is sure taking his lumps for the team this inning. 47 freakin pitch inning???

    • zumiee said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:56 pm

      It’s his total; he came in last inning.

      • zumiee said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:57 pm

        .

  14. snarkk said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    I’m gone for 3 minutes and missed a scoringsplosion! 5 runs in, WTF! Parker with a huge jack and a tripl for Craw. Nice…

    • chipower9 said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:02 pm

      And all with zero outs! I missed it too…had to rewind and catch Parker’s blast.

  15. bassbaldy said, on May 24, 2016 at 9:57 pm

    No Casillia .. Yay!

  16. chipower9 said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:06 pm

    Hector fucking Sanchez…WTF…

    • Lurker John said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:10 pm

      lol

  17. chipower9 said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    Ballgame! 12 of 13…and we saw that marvelous conga line, again!

  18. chipower9 said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:08 pm

    G’night Flap Universe. Make it an awesome day tomorrow.

    • zumiee said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:10 pm

      Good night, Chi!

  19. Macdog said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:12 pm

    Jon Miller cracked me up on that Duffy double in the 8th: “The ball’s hit to center . . . and there is no centerfielder!”

  20. Macdog said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:25 pm

    Madson just hacked one up for the A’s, giving up a 2-run game-winning bomb to Leonys Martin with two outs in the 9th.

  21. Carstie Clausen said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    Called it at 10:33 this morning. Well, not Parker’s blast, but the probability of him getting the call and also batting 7th. Of course that was not rocket science, just probability factoring. Also suggested he might Wally Pipp Pagan. That remains to be seen. Good start anyway against Hessler. We will know more after he’s faced some of the pitching the team has encountered lately. But he may well feast on cripples, newbies and has-beens. Betcha the Dagos would like him on their team tomorrow afternoon.

    Nice to see Duffy and Posey get into the action. When the middle of the order produces, the conga-line induces…R U N S in a bunch.

    Our top 3 starters have accumulated 20 wins amongst the trio. Several MLB teams are yet to reach the 20 win bracket. If the trend continues SF could end up with three 20 game winners, all making the All-Star roster.

  22. zumiee said, on May 24, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    Peavy pitches tomorrow.

    • snarkk said, on May 24, 2016 at 11:54 pm

      Well, I’ll be scared for YOU and ME…
      😉

    The Dubs certainly can reel off 3 straight, but they are doing what they can’t do, and that’s turn the ball over. They are also missing a ton of shots that they usually don’t miss. Steph and Green had 12 turnovers between ’em. Green was 107, Steph 6-20. And 21 total turnovers. I winder if fatigue is a factor, but Curry got a LOT of 4th quarters off, and the Warriors had a lot of victories where they rested everyone.

    So I’m not buying the fatigue factor. The big problem the last 2 games is Green has played awful. Same with Steph. Green was a -42 on the floor the other day, and a -30 tonight. Maybe Portland wore them out. For being a 5 game series, it took a lot out of them. And Green looks fucked up. Steph is off as well. And what is absolutely killing them is giving OKC so many 2nd chance points. 56-40 on the boards.

    OKC has turned it around because their rookie coach finally got them to pay attention on defense. It took some time to get through to them. Also, Westbrook has finally learned that other guys on the team should take shots occasionally.

    • snarkk said, on May 25, 2016 at 12:04 am

      Let them get back to Oracle, and right the ship. Then, see what happens. I wonder if that knee is bothering Steph…

  24. snarkk said, on May 25, 2016 at 12:20 am

    Parker coming up certainly paid dividends tonight with his dinger. But, anybody see anything in the media about why they brought him up instead of Wiliiamson? I would think they would favor the RH power hitter for ATT usage, not the LHB. At least they DLed Pagan, like they should have done the first time his hammy went whacky…
