Re-Focusing the Focus

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 20, 2016

Ok, I’ve washed that epic meltdown off and turned my focus to….baseball. That’s it. For the rest of the Summer my sports attention is on one thing: baseball. And as Summer gets under way today, that’s not a bad place to attend.

Pittsburgh reminds me of Cleveland so I do not like them one fuck. And though I’ve never been to either place I want the Giants to destroy the Pirates today…..

It’s possible I haven’t *completely* washed that epic meltdown off yet. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    A DFS pot of Gold with a Giants LU stack would wash away any epic meltdown I would imagine.

  2. Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 7:15 am

    Now that I’ve cooled down a bit, congrats to the Cavaliers and the city of Cleveland. They’ve been as long-suffering a fan base as any and I know how good the first one feels, even though Bay Area fans have been blessed in multiple sports.

  3. Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 7:18 am

    You guys are going to have to put out some sort of Idiots Guide to Flap Nation Acronyms because I rarely know what they are. They just pop up and start getting used like they’ve been around for years.

    LU I get, but DFS?

    • zumiee said, on June 20, 2016 at 7:23 am

      Draft Fantasy Sports, or something like that. Daily fantasy sports, like Draft Kings.

      • Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 7:37 am

        Thank you sir.

  4. zumiee said, on June 20, 2016 at 7:29 am

    I don’t dislike the Pirates, although, historically, the Giants struggle in games there.
    The huge exception is the 8-0 Wild Card win in ’14.
    MadBum again today.

    • Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 7:38 am

      You have to feel good about any series that starts with Bum, Cueto and Shark.

  5. willedav said, on June 20, 2016 at 7:47 am

    Only finger I’m pointing is at K Irving, for making the most spectacular shots and the game winner.

    Not sure what is wrong with Pirates; they were great last year and seem to have very formidable team.
    WC is gonna be a tough sled for non division winners, one of which, Mets, just lost consecutive games at home to the Braves. Natives not happy I’d presume. that’s the kind of stuff can get a mgr. fired.

  6. willedav said, on June 20, 2016 at 7:49 am

    Not sure who it was, but Giants mgr. got fired very early one year after losing a game to Pads like 17-15.
    I’ll have to go look this one up…

  7. willedav said, on June 20, 2016 at 8:46 am

    Haven’t found what I was looking for re: Sf mgrs. but interesting stuff during the 60s, when after watching Richardson glove Mac’s drive in class 6th grade I was sure Giants were going back…

    Alvin Dark, from 1961-64 finished 3rd 1st 3rd and 4th. ’64 team won 90 and finished 3 back.

    Herman Franks (whom my mom couldn’t stand) from 65-68 finished 2nd every single time.
    He won 367 games in 4 yrs but never won the league, coming as close as a game or two but despite high winning total team was 10 games out in ’67.

  8. Bozo said, on June 20, 2016 at 8:52 am

    Pirates, eh? Stomp the piss out of ’em!

  9. sfsarge said, on June 20, 2016 at 9:12 am

    This is similar to my FB post from last night. I will say this about the dubs, other than the first game back in Portland, Steph wasn’t the same after the knee spain. He came up ant small in the Finals. His injury, coupled with Draymond’s suspension and Bogut’s injury were too much for them to overcome in the last 2 games. Andrew Bogut was not given the credit he deserved as a facilitator of their offense.

    • chipower9 said, on June 20, 2016 at 10:52 am

      Agree Sarge. I thinking was huge not having Bogut for the final two. Probably bigger than Laing Day Day for a game, IMO.

    • Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:17 am

      Absolutely, Sarge. Not having Bogut in the middle was a killer defensively, not to mention the assists lost due to his injury. He’s a good high post passer and great at hitting guys cutting to the basket.

  10. snarkk said, on June 20, 2016 at 9:33 am

    Was rootin’ for the Dubs, but hey, sometimes things go wrong. This loss is tough, for some reason they just looked out of sorts the last month of games. Weary? Steph injured? We’ll hear about these later. Anyway, in the scheme of things for me this is no biggie, they won last year. The 2002 WS debacle is so far beyond this one for me in significance, it’s like comparing a monster 8.0 quake with a <1.0 no-feel-it shaker…

    • gianthead said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:33 am

      Totally agree snarkk as I write below…

  11. Carstie Clausen said, on June 20, 2016 at 9:47 am

    Ahhh. Thanx be to goodness, the goddamn boobsketbawl season is over. After today i hope for no more mentions. As Flav fairly recently pointedely pointed out to me, this is a baseball blog. Flootbrawl: Too brutalitarian to my taste. Mashed and mangled grey matter, anybody? Boobsketbawl: Sounds like its crooked as a dawg’s hind leg. Great athleticism, though. But baseball? Now we’re talking poetry in motion. Ballet for men.

      Concur on all points, Stix!

  12. dirtnrocksnomo said, on June 20, 2016 at 10:45 am

    After the Green suspension I didn’t bother watching the rest of the series. I’m guessing we’ll see the same match up in the NBA finals next year.

  13. chipower9 said, on June 20, 2016 at 10:50 am

    I am with you Flav, wash that shot off and focus on the REALLY important matter…

    San Francisco Giants baseball!

    Kyrie Irving commented last year that the Warriors got them (the Cavs) at less than full strength last year (without Kyrie or Love). Same is true this year for the Warriors being without Bogut the past two games. No excuse. Just an observation. Will be interesting to see what tweaks the Dubs do the their line-up (Kevin Durant, anyone?). Barnes is a restricted FA, I believe. I think he is gone.

    Also wondering (as was discussed much earlier) if the Warriors put too much effort in setting the single season win mark. We will never know.

    • snarkk said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:14 am

      The Dubs – OKC series was epic, IMO it took a lot outta the Dubs; they essentially played two finals back to back. Cavs cruised into the finals with virtually no competition int the first 3 rounds. That disparate effort level before the finals had to make some difference favoring Cavs…

      • sfsarge said, on June 20, 2016 at 3:00 pm

        That is also a great point

  14. snarkk said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:16 am

    Bucs are down so far this season, but they give SF fits in recent years at PNC in reg season. I’d gladly settle for a split and get outta town…

  15. Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:22 am

    Snarkk mentioned earlier in the playoffs that he thought Curry’s knee injury was hindering him more than he let on. At the time I discounted it, but in hindsight I think he was right. Both the injuries combined with the energy spent chasing the record ultimately did Curry and the team in. They just ran out of gas and it showed. Very flat the last 3 games.

  16. gianthead said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:29 am

    My son has hit his sports career low with last night. The Niners blowing the Super Bowl against the Ravens hurt him, but this was worse for him.

    He did not have to live through Game 6 in 2002, the worst sports moment for me, nor Game 6 in ’86 in St. Louis, the Dravecky playoff 1 run game, my second worst. Third worst is 2003 in Florida when Jose Cruz Jr. Drops that frickin fly ball in extra innings.

    But last night does not hurt me as much as I am pissed off. I honestly feel Game 5 was stolen from us. If we lost with Draymond and then lose Games 6 & 7, fine, it is a legit championship. I don’t feel like we lost this fair and square. I am sure that is how Cleveland felt last year not having 2 key pieces, ok one and a half key pieces.

    But my past anger was directed at Dusty for yanking Russian Ortiz more than on FRod for that Game 6 disaster and then OF course Jose frickin Cruz and of course the two complete Livan Hernandez disasters in Game 5 in NY in 2000 against the Mets and Game 7 in Anaheim, of course I blame Dusty for starting Livan in both games.

    But I am livid about Stephen and first that frickin behind the back pass to Klay in the corner and for continuing to gun 3 pointers, the worst being the one with 1:10 left and 16 seconds left on the shot clock.

    For how great he has been in his career and how much joy he has given us, this is the first time I am angry at one of our beloved players. I think the series was stolen from us with Draymond’s suspension more than the 6 fouls on Steph in Game 6, but Steph threw away the championship. It was bloody 89-89 when he chucked that up. Why can they not take the easier path and go in for something that may lead to a foul, given if they ever call it. When Iggy pulled up for that 3, he pumped fake and had Love in the air, he should have jumped sideways to draw the foul…Fuck I am pissed. Go Giants. I still have great thoughts about that subject.

    • gianthead said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:44 am

      My last bball comments for the season, we’ll see if I live up to it, is say good bye to Harrison Barnes. I hope they yank that offer ASAP. I’d int think Durant is ever coming our way.

      I see Durant and Lebron both getting one year opt outs and each giving their teams another run. I see Dwayne Wade joining Lebron for a year, then I am predicting, Lebron, Durant, Westbrook are going to the Lakers and bring on the greatest rivalry in the NBA with our Dubs and the Lakers. I want them all in LA and I want this war!!!! We have two years to get big and besides saying good bye to Harrison, Bogut and Iggy probably will not be Warriors in two years.

      Can the Warriors pull off a deal to get this 7’1″ Croat from the Celtics 3rd overall pick. Not sure we have anyone we can move for that pick. He would be quite interesting in a Warriors uniform.

  17. blade3colorado said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:45 am

    No excuses. Warriors were bitch slapped. Green’s boner (suspension) was huge, but the Warriors play was putrid. J.A. Adande describes it perfectly . . .

    “There are more than enough regretful moments to go around. The 18 missed 3-pointers by the Splash Brothers. Harrison Barnes’ slump over the last three games, in which he shot 5-for-32. The failure of the Warriors’ big men to produce after Andrew Bogut went down with a knee injury in Game 5; Festus Ezeli and Anderson Varejao had no field goals, no blocked shots and a combined one rebound in their 20 minutes on the court in Game 7.”

    . . . Plus, they were spotted a 3-1 series lead. As Sarge said, they came up “ant small” while the Cavs rose to the occasion.

    • Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 1:40 pm

      Yeah, they were putrid that last 3 games. They were up 3-1 prior to that. And they certainly weren’t “spotted” anything, they earned the 3-1 lead.

      • blade3colorado said, on June 20, 2016 at 3:01 pm

        Umm, I wasn’t denigrating the 3 wins, so perhaps a wrong term. The face plant in the last 3 games were more egregious due to winning the other 3 games, especially the 2 where they totally dominated the Cavs, and DID THAT WITHOUT MUCH CONTRIBUTION FROM THE SPLASH BROS.

  18. gianthead said, on June 20, 2016 at 11:47 am

    Ok one more comment, I don’t dislike Lebron and if we had to lose, I’d rather lose to the Cavs and give Cleveland a championship finally. But F the Cubs…they are not breaking the streak on our heads…

  19. zumiee said, on June 20, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    Yeah, that’s the deal we make as fans- we have to take the lows with the highs. And given that there’s only one champion in each sport each year, it’s a bit skewed in favor of lows. 🙂

  20. pawliekokonuts said, on June 20, 2016 at 12:18 pm

    I wanted the Warriors to win. I’ve enjoyed being a Joanie-come-lately fan. I was disappointed but not disconsolate that they lost. My younger daughter chastised me for not rooting for the Cavs. She somehow thinks I always go for the Underdogs, based on my long SFG history. (Hey, I became a Niners fan with Joe Montana.) Have at it, Cleveland. Have your bask.

  21. pawliekokonuts said, on June 20, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    Pittsburgh. My last trip was 2012. Last weekend before ASG. It felt like a fuckn cauldron. 98,000 degrees. TL sucked. The Gyros looked dreadful and tired and beat. WE WON THE WORLD SERIES THAT YEAR.

    • gianthead said, on June 20, 2016 at 2:46 pm

      Lincecum always pitched poorly in the hit…he always got clobbered here in DC and it always seemed about 120 when he started against the Nats…

      • Bozo said, on June 20, 2016 at 3:03 pm

        Those 4th of July games in DC seemed like the heat index was 1,000. The Giants have lost every game I have been to in DC (5 or 6), it seemed to me the whole pitching staff wilted there.

  22. Carstie Clausen said, on June 20, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    4 game series. Pittsburgh. They always play us tough. We got our Big Three + a resurrecting Peavy facing them, though. We could actually go 3-1 this go-round IFFFFF our offense does not fizzle and the bullies keep pulling themselves together. Big ifs, i know, however, Belt has been blasting lately, Buster picking it up a bit and Panduffistan looking more like themselves. So it should come out no worse than a split.

  23. zumiee said, on June 20, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    And later in the evening, the Nats/Dodgers game is on ESPN tonight. Strasburg vs. Kershaw, an interesting match-up.

  24. zumiee said, on June 20, 2016 at 2:03 pm

    No Gillaspie at 3b tonight, they’re going with Pena. Pirate pitcher is a lefty. And Parker instead of Blanco in rf.

  25. unca_chuck said, on June 20, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    More than anything were the lazy passes from Curry that pissed me off. His turnovers were way too numerous. He played like he was in a fog.

    Speaking of motivation, Bron had a shitload coming into this series. We had ’em down, but couldn’t finish the deal. PISSER. 2 game 7!losses in a week.

    And no don’t see how injuries would affect Curry’s decision makng process when throwing a behind-the-back passes out of bounds. Team wide though they weren’t moving well and flat blew it in the end.

    I’m guessing Bogut, Iggy, and Barnes all go, and OBDs make a big push for KD.

    • Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 2:56 pm

      Not bringing back Iggy would be a mistake, IMO. He’s still got some gas left in the tank and his minutes are more easily regulated coming off the bench. If they let Bogut go, they had better come up with a viable shot-blocking, rebounding, defending player to replace him.

      I agree about Curry’s passes. He knew about them, he said he was going to stop making them and he’d come the next game with the same lazy passes. I have no idea why he keeps making the same mistake over and over. The injuries would affect his driving to the basket, which he didn’t do nearly as much in the playoffs. That’s one reason defenses didn’t have to respect the 3 as much; they knew he was unlikely to drive.

    • gianthead said, on June 20, 2016 at 2:59 pm

      Well Bogut and Iggy have one year left on their deals. I don’t think anyone is trading for Bogut, but I think moving Iggy is a strong possibility if someone wants an expiring contract on top of his defensive prowess. In fact, if they had a serious chance at Durant, I think they would have to move Iggy’s contract anyway. Would the Celtics be interestes. If I am the Cavs, I would try and get him to keep him away from a potential Finals rival in the Dubs. I am still predicting Blake Griffin is going to end up with the Cavs in exchange for KLove…

      I just don’t see Durant signing. He wants to be a Lebron and lead a team to a championship. I think he gives OKC one more run.

      • Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 6:27 pm

        From what I’ve been reading, the Warriors are a long shot to sign Durant. My guess is that he’ll end up back with OKC.

  26. unca_chuck said, on June 20, 2016 at 2:22 pm

    WilliedV, I listened to that game when I was a kid. It was the Padres, and I think it went like 16 innings. They would score and we would tie it. Til we didn’t.

    I think it was Charlie Fox that got fired that day. Or they hired him?

  27. unca_chuck said, on June 20, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    I’ve said this all through the last 2 rounds that the Warriors didn’t do enough attacking the rim. Curry I understand as he’s beat-up already, but Thompson spent the whole year driving and either dishing or going for the layup. It opens things up on the arc when we attack the basket. When we don’t, the arc is easier to defend.

    Ahh well. I’d imagine some kind of 3 way deal with the Celts and OKC and us to move these contracts and bodies around.

  28. unca_chuck said, on June 20, 2016 at 3:29 pm

    Tell you one thing, we need some length. OKC killed us on the offensive boards. Even more so than Cle.

  29. Flavor said, on June 20, 2016 at 4:08 pm

    Kruk just dropped a “he’ll throw anything at any time” on Locke. So, there’s that. Also, I’m tired of the way he says “squat”

    • djloo27 said, on June 20, 2016 at 4:13 pm

      Glad you said it. “Squat” was on my nerves years ago.
      Doesn’t take much…

  30. sfsarge said, on June 20, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    It’s kind of funny to me how irritated you guys seem to be with Kruk. But I gotta tell you, it’s gonna suck when he hangs it up. I like what he brings. I don’t love everything, his over the top homerism can be a bit much, but all in all. I’m good with it.

    • sandog said, on June 20, 2016 at 5:57 pm

      I won’t be that bummed when Kruk retires from the booth, and I’ll be even less bummed when Kuip hangs it up.

    • Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 6:22 pm

      It’ll only suck if the guy they replace him with sucks worse. Kruk is an Giant’s icon as a player and broadcaster, but he can be a little tough to listen to sometimes. Too much Captain Obvious stuff for me.

  31. zumiee said, on June 20, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    Strange pitching change, IMO.

    • sandog said, on June 20, 2016 at 5:57 pm

      Pirate announcers agree with you.

      • zumiee said, on June 20, 2016 at 6:02 pm

        The reliever got Bum out, but that starter looked good to go on into the 9th. His pitch count wasn’t bad.

  32. Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 6:20 pm

    The anemic offense has returned. No hint of a threat.

  33. Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 6:24 pm

    Bum is in line to get hosed. Freakin’ phenomenal line but on the hook for the loss.

  34. James said, on June 20, 2016 at 6:26 pm

    Pirates 5 game losing streak, Giants 8 game winning streak, an ok major league starter facing them who has been crushed two straight times … the odds of tonight’s outcome through 8 were pretty good.

  35. Flavor said, on June 20, 2016 at 6:30 pm

    Ok Locke is painfully average but I really do think there’s something to getting stuck in a trance in that dump in Tampa and then no off day and travel. I bet we snap out of this tomorrow.
    Huh, another Belt bungle on the base paths. Shocker…..

  36. Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 6:31 pm

    Uh oh. Wheels starting to fall off? Or just a couple of minor flat tires? How many good spares do we have in the trunk? ………. It’s been amazing that LA has been playing pretty well and yet the G’s are keeping them 6 or so back. No June swoon, but hopefully the injury bug we’ve all feared won’t amount to much.

  49. willedav said, on June 20, 2016 at 8:18 pm

    Loo thx for finding that boxscore. Chuck got me going when he mentioned Charlie Fox. Yes you’re right they fired Clyde king and replaced him with Fox for next day, when they swept the Pads.
    I don’t remember the Puente kid either. I couldn’t recall the light hitting SS, Huntz, that homered for the W.
    I love those old boxscores–Giants were already 12 out in May. Mac had 40 rbis and 1.043 OPS.

  50. unca_chuck said, on June 20, 2016 at 8:49 pm

    Goddamnit! Belt’s out, and Posey has a hammy issue?

    Yeah, that’s cool, DJ. Thanks. We were driving somewhere and we listened from somewhere around the 8th to the end. My mom was patient with us. . .

    • James said, on June 20, 2016 at 9:04 pm

      Belt was only out at first on a misread of a line drive to the RF corner, although the right clown foot is obviously still mocking him. Duffy is on the DL, Posey is not real healthy.

  51. Lurker John said, on June 20, 2016 at 9:04 pm

    It’s really hard to respect LeBron when, instead of focusing on celebrating Cleveland’s first championship in 52 years with the fans, he takes the team to Vegas before heading back to Cleveland and then shows up wearing this t-shirt. What a douche!

    By the way, have you ever seen someone try to catch a homerun ball the way Pagan tried to, with two hands? It looked awkward and weird, instead of the way everyone else does it, by using one hand to push off the fence with, and the other to make the catch. Pagan got all stuck on the fence and dropped the ball trying to get unstuck.

      It’s not often you see a blown routine home run saving catch.

        Pagan’s hands aren’t exactly the best out there. Should have had it; hell he did have it — just didn’t close the glove enough on it. Still, the Gyros shouldn’t be sweating a pitcher giving up one run. More constipation offense…

    Fleming was doing the Dodger-Nats game. Like K/K or not, I think he’s gonzo soon for a chance to be a lead guy more often. He does nice job on these games (OK at b-ball too) but Giants announcers treat him like a kid bro. Expect more “Flems is on assignment”.

    LB reminds me of what someone said about Reggie Jackson—as a teammate he’d give you the shirt off his back.
    And call a press conference to talk about it.

    Duffy to the DL?

    Maybe these guys should try being less fit.

    I have to agree with Sarge (becoming a habit) – on the scale of all things Giants which irritate me, Krukow and Kuiper are barely noted. Maybe it’s because I am in Colorado and when I do access games, it’s via the internet and it’s just as likely to be the opposing team’s announcers – whom usually suck; or, it’s watching the pathetic ROOT announcers doing the Sherpas games. Or, maybe for you guys, it’s that old saying, “Familiarity breeds contempt.” Dunno . . .

    My take is that they are the best and I have heard just about all of them (mostly because of my DFS involvement, where I will often switch to various games numerous times during an evening/day of baseball). That being said, my all time favorite remains Hank Greenwald, with the wry, humorous, low key announcing style.

    Flemming comes across as completely disingenuous to me. I wouldn’t miss him.
