Phuckin’ Phillies @ The Big Phone

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 24, 2016

Another day, another W. This is what the Dubs season felt like. Wins piling on top of wins with the fans starting to become a little immune to how awesome a win is. We need to appreciate these now, there will be darker days ahead.

Tonight, the Phillies come to town and they stink. They can’t hit and their pitchers give up gobs of bombs. How will that translate into this weekend series? It’s baseball, anything can happen. I don’t think we’re as good as our record. It doesn’t make sense that we can lose some of our best players and we start winning MORE. But whatever, enjoy the ride. Peavy at home as been a pretty good ride. Peavy anywhere has been a surprising good thing.

Ranking our starters in terms of reliability you’d probably have to go Bum, Cueto, Peavy, Smarge and then Suarez who is just a cheaper version of Petit who, frankly, I’d still rather have on the team…..

    MLB Gameday is calling Casilla’s off speed pitch a knuckle curve. Is that really what he’s throwing?

    • Lurker John said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:30 pm

      I don’t think so.

      • Paul Sorensen said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:31 pm

        Yeah, I didn’t think so either, but it sounds cool….

  3. chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    Damn, how was that NOT a strike in relation the the strike-out pitch?!

  4. zumiee said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:30 pm

    With that herky-jerky motion, Casilla just never was going to be a pinpoint control guy.

    • zumiee said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:33 pm

      It gets pretty ridiculous, though.

  5. Paul Sorensen said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:32 pm

    Ok, I take it back, maybe edge of your seats baseball against a lousy team in June ain’t all that great…..

  6. Lurker John said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:33 pm

    This dude has nothing tonight.

  7. Macdog said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:34 pm

    Worst-hitting team in baseball, and these guys don’t want to throw strikes.

  8. Lurker John said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:34 pm

    wtf

  9. Paul Sorensen said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:34 pm

    They absolutely canNOT allow this one to slip away….

    I hate it when Kruk makes excuses for a pitcher, fuck the fact he has been out there third day in a row!!

  11. chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    Tortuous…flashback to 2010…

  12. chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:37 pm

    Wow! Fuck Yeah!

  13. Lurker John said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    ain’t over yet

  14. chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    Holy shit! It stands!

  15. Lurker John said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    Great play by Pena!

  16. Macdog said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    Just another three-hour-plus, six-pitcher, one-run victory.

    • Paul Sorensen said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:40 pm

      lulz 🙂 Had it all the way, Mac. Wow, you still up?

      • Macdog said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:41 pm

        Hell yeah, I just got home a little while ago.

  17. chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    Weeee Doggies Boys! That was way too close for comfort…

  18. Lurker John said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    Talk about a high-wire act, that was Philippe Petit at the WTC.

  19. zumiee said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:40 pm

    All of that literally couldn’t have been closer. 🙂

  20. Lurker John said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:40 pm

    Santiago “Two-Pack” Casilla.

    • zumiee said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:42 pm

      Some people probably STARTED smoking for the first time during that inning!

      • chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:46 pm

        LMAO…no kidding!

  21. bassbaldy said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:44 pm

    unHoly TORTURE Batman! Fuck that was close … !!!!

    Casilla: A hungry seagull’s worst nightmare…

    • chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:46 pm

      lulz

    • Lurker John said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:49 pm

      lol

  23. chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:46 pm

    Shit, I’m pouring myself a stiff Moscow Mule and hitting the hot tub! Whew…

    Will miss tomorrow’s game (may follow on LameDay)…we will be in North Shore Lake Tahoe to see a band I have wanted to see for some time: Trampled by Turtles. In a small casino to boot. Should be a kick-ass show!

    Flan Man on the postgame. Was so fun seeing him and his band last weekend, and to get to meet and chat with him. He is one damned cool dude.

    • zumiee said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:58 pm

      Have a great time at the show, Chi!

  24. bassbaldy said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    I wonder what the record for one run victories is … are we even in the vicinity? We gotta be getting close … Damn, what a weird season!

  25. Carstie Clausen said, on June 24, 2016 at 10:56 pm

    Good thing Flappers and other Giants fans are not pitching for the team. It is very important for a pitcher to retain his fingernails.

    • zumiee said, on June 24, 2016 at 11:00 pm

      That was tough to watch. It would be interesting to know what the average spike in blood pressure was for all Flappers.

  26. djloo27 said, on June 24, 2016 at 11:03 pm

    I think the Giants will swing a multi-player deal that brings back a veteran closer (Huston Street?) and possibly more…

    • zumiee said, on June 24, 2016 at 11:08 pm

      Andrew Miller! 🙂

  27. zumiee said, on June 24, 2016 at 11:06 pm

    I’m sitting on the back porch in a reclining lawn chair, enjoying the cool breeze. The heat of the Valley day has finally gone. Drinking ice tea. The Giants with a 7 game lead. Great evening.

    • Paul Sorensen said, on June 24, 2016 at 11:10 pm

      Nice…..

    • chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 11:50 pm

      Sounds awesome, Zume. Just got out of the hot tub after a Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy (decided a Moscow Mule was too much work after that game!). Nice breeze coming up the face of the ridge…loving it. Seven games…let’s make it twelve…

  28. chipower9 said, on June 24, 2016 at 11:51 pm

    G’Night Flap Universe. Kick ass band, the Avett Brothers, on the Late Show tonight.

  29. eddacker said, on June 24, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    G’Night, Chi, another awesome win tonight.

    Geez, I was at the game last night. Had the kids with me so I missed a lot of it. What a nailbiter. I don’t why I never realized how hard Osich threw. Every pitch over 95 there is some company that donates to Jr. Giants and they had something pop up on the scoreboard, that’s what dialed me in. Anyway, the 9th was a little too interesting for my taste, but I’m glad Casilla was able to get a B-Weezy type victory.
