Suar-tton Start?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 1, 2016

I know they’re giving the ball to Al-Su today but the back up plan has to be a quick entrance for Chris Stratton, right? If they’re worried about putting too much pressure on the kid it makes sense they’re keeping him in waiting in case Suarez needs assistance. And if he isn’t needed as a long man then things must be going ok for Suarez, right?

There are still 585 tickets available for the game in Atlanta tonight. I noticed yesterday that there were 747 tickets available so they’re going….slow. I have no idea why this has caught my attention. If anyone gets a chance to eyeball the number of fans at game time please let me know. I’m betting 40% full and I’m starting to obsess on what all these people are doing with their unsold tickets.

They hit 9 home runs in Colorado last night. Seriously, they need to move that team to another city. It is absolutely absurd what happens to the game up there……

    I’m glad Bum was able to go five innings in relief in Game 7 of the ’14 World Series, and we were able to skip Casilla.

    I know everyone likes Law’s ball but I think he looks out of shape and not at all athletic.

    speaking of that, Kruk said the second fastest player on the team in Chicago was Rick Ruschel. That blew my mind.

    Law threw such a lollipop pitch to Freeman. You just can’t make that mistake in that situation.

    And Sharks lose, too.

  6. James said, on June 1, 2016 at 8:18 pm

    This is a game that should not have been pissed away, not with Pence injured, Cueto complaining about back discomfort, and a likely cooling off period looming after a 21-8 May.

  7. James said, on June 1, 2016 at 8:22 pm

    Law had not given up an HR in 16 innings. That first run where both Parker and Span fucked up was more painful than Freeman guessing right on a curveball.

    Guess I missed all the fun at Hotlanta.
    Casilla apparently mentally imploded again, but what’s the alternative?
    And Pence, not surprisingly, I hear blew his hammy out. He’s been nursing a bad hammy, and yet they still let him play until he blows it out real well. I’ve had it with the Giants medical/training staff and how they handle these injuries. Instead of DLing a guy for 2 weeks to get right, they futz around with a few days off, in-house day to day rehab, then back out there while the guy is clearly not right — and result — now he’s probably out for 3X as long or 6 weeks, based on radio guys saying it looks severe. Total bullcrap. And what’s also behind it? NO FRIGGIN OFers in the minors worth a crap to bring up for 2 weeks!…

    Ray Woodson on KNBR excusing the Giants med staff and management from blame on Pence’s re-aggravation, as the tweets roll in calling them out. Hey, the medicos know best. FUCK that. Pagan same scenario, now Pence…

    Sabevans must beat the bushes hard for a closer…

    Every time Casilla takes the bump, it is like fingernails on a fucking chalkboard.

    Four blown saves and we are basically at the 1/3 point of the season. Bullshit…

  12. willedav said, on June 2, 2016 at 7:54 am

    Wow unfortunate L. Miller on radio said Casilla just lost all command–after getting first out and going 0-2 on the kid he hit him then threw the wild pitches that blew the save.

    Off topic, but a legal ? for Flap pros (where is Xoot btw?): Saw this in news about cell towers. Couple guys convicted of robberies had police trace their whereabouts putting them in the area using cell phone tower records without getting a warrant. 3 judge panel threw it out, fed court reversed that ruling and upheld convictions.
    Argument is how does 4th amendment (protection against unreasonable search etc.) apply? Defendant lawyer says, “Simply carrying a cell phone is not an invitation to the govt. to track our every move.”

    • chipower9 said, on June 2, 2016 at 8:01 am

      Yes, where in the hell is Xoot? My thoughts would be if the dirtbags are committing crimes, that a simple request (warrant) to use that data would be within the confines of the law. IMO a warrant should be required. George Orwell…paging Mr. George Orwell.

  13. snarkk said, on June 2, 2016 at 8:13 am

    Yeah, the basic key is when is the “reasonable expectation of privacy” breached by gov’t?…

    • willedav said, on June 2, 2016 at 8:23 am

      Judge who wrote majority opinion said SC has held 4th does NOT protect info voluntarily turned over to 3rd party, in this case defendant’s cell phone service provider.. Police still have to get a court order, but not a search warrant (with higher standard of probable cause) to obtain cell tower data.
      Probably haven’t heard the last on this one I guess.

  14. snarkk said, on June 2, 2016 at 8:31 am

    Sorry to say, but loss of Pence is huge for however long he is out. He really stiffens up that LU. I don’t think the guy’s leg has been totally right since ST. Maybe this Paleo diet isn’t so cool, and playing for two years with no breaks is catching up…

  15. chipower9 said, on June 2, 2016 at 8:41 am

    It is official, Pence to the DL and Williamson recalled.

    • snarkk said, on June 2, 2016 at 8:47 am

      Looks like we’ll find out now whether Williamson and Parker can play, given enough ABs. Maybe one can…

  16. unca_chuck said, on June 2, 2016 at 8:54 am

    Fuck. Just when things seemed to be going really well. Pfffffffffffffffffffffft!!

    The big 3 better pitch their asses off these next few weeks.

    I think the argument, Willie, is that it isn’t the government tracking you (us), it’s the cell phone providers.

    What they do or don’t do to protect that info, contractually or otherwise, is certainly a question for the legals out there, but I’m sure the founding fathers were all over this scenario back in the 18th century.

  17. unca_chuck said, on June 2, 2016 at 8:55 am

    Carlos Beltran, come on down. Maybe we can waste another young prospect on him again.

  18. snarkk said, on June 2, 2016 at 9:07 am

    Good luck to Dubs tonight. Seems to me the Cavs don’t present as potent an oppo as OKC did. But, Cavs are well rested, plenty of time to figure out how to defend the Dubs. I don’t believe that winning the title is necessary to validate the Dubs great season — they’ve had two great seasons in a row, sandwiched around a title. But, it would be the ultimate capper to this season and cement legend status for the squad…
