LA(me) Game

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 24, 2016

When I put the call out for a suffocating pitching performance I was kinda hoping it would be better than just holding the Dodgers to single digits. Two guys named Segedin and Toles went blast off. That’s just so stupid.

The only good news is that the great TedSpe made a triumphant return to the Flap. Then he left to “go memorize lines.”

Someone should write a tragedy depicting this Giants season. It could be titled “For Whom the Bell Segedin and Toles”.

Cueto tonight vs The Blister.

    To wait all day on anticipation of that…had a good gin/cigar buzz and then lights out asleep at 5-3 and happy once again to miss witnessing our horrid bullpen during this second half of the season..

  2. snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 7:15 am

    LA is hammering the ball right now. If the giants can escape with one win it will be a surprise to me….

    Could smell the stink all the way up here in Sacramento.

    As Mac reported, GH was right here was a missed sign on the double steal. Kelly did not get the sign to Bum for hit/run who took the pitch instead of swinging.

    Middle order killed last night. Seager with clutch AB, fouling off tough pitches from Bum who then got wild with fastball way out of zone and walked him. As Pawlie said, events leading up to AGon single just out of Craw’s range, and the dribbler Nunez couldn’t handle off Turner’s bat, did them in.
    From there it was Gearrin, Compost and Lopez making things worse.

    Great to hear from Ted again, hopefully going forward under better circumstances.
    Maeda probably best of SPs on this trip and Giants handled him pretty well.

    Pagan continues to rake—wonder if any thought to moving Panik back up to top along with Span? These guys have all hit well lately.
    Giants scored 5 last night and battled back—5 should be more than enough.

  5. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:26 am

    Yeah, a very disappointing outing by Bummie. It’s like he needs Puig out there to get pissed off at to keep him engaged.

    Kelly with yet again a major gaffe. Fuck. Cueto had been giving up gopher balls as well, so hopefully he can calm the seas of mediocrity.

  6. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:31 am

    Geez if I knew they were gonna shit a rotten egg I would of got a better skink on last night!
    Didn’t see the game probably a good thing now, but wtf is Kelly doing over at 3rd when he needs a translator to even have a sign from the dugout on key moments..

  7. Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:36 am

    How could that be on Kelly? Nunie and Panik both said they got the hit and run sign. So why didn’t Bum swing? Seems to me that’s on Bum

  8. willedav said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:49 am

    At least Smith looked good out of pen and made AGon look pretty bad at the plate.
    Those 2 likely to hook up again and he’s here to get tough LHs out.

  9. gianthead said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:54 am

    Flav, I caught your comment about long distance KNBR signal. I shit you not, when I moved to DC from SF, was probably July 1, 1993. Giants were playing at home against the Fodgers. I pulled into Salt Lake City around 5 pm and drove around the town to check it out probably ate dinner.

    I was weighing should I just crash at a motel there but figured might as well drive as much as possible and was hoping the Giants game would beam into Utah decently from KNBR. Game comes on and it is probably dusk east of Salt Lake City by the first pitch in SF and pretty decent signal. I drove for the entire game into Wyoming and that KNBR signal was strong the entire way…I was just completely blown away. Game ends and I end my roughly 14 hour day of driving in some podunk unknown middle of nowhere Wyoming town…

  10. gianthead said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:57 am

    Regarding the missed signal by Bum, agree with Flav no way that is on Roberto. Both runners got the signal, I think they are trying to save face for Bum. The runners I would presume don’t get the signal from the dugout but from Roberto…but it is clear there was a missed sign. Bochy would never have called for a double steal…

  11. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:09 am

    Gearrin should never be brought into a game that is remotely winnable…

  12. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:10 am

    I don’t think Bum and Nunie went out for beers after the game either…

  13. snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:36 am

    This is always a kind of lame excuse, but I’ll offer it anyway. It’s kind of along the lines of posts the other day that this team seems to be missing something. Maybe with all the earli injuries and Pen revolving door, the chemistry of this team is just messed up. Examples are bad base running all season, the missed signs stuff, atrocious hitting with RISP, etc. the overall play just seems out of whack…

  14. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:03 am

    I think our best hope is for Pence and/or Posey to get on a major tear and put the team on their back(s).
    Hopefully they are still physically capable of it.
    In the interim, there are a lot of games to keep your eye on in the WC race which we are now in the thick of…

  15. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:17 am

    Tomorrow is the 45th anniversary of Dave Kingman hitting a school bus in the parking lot at Shea Stadium.
    Feels like 145 years but a lot of people still remember it. It was a day game. I wore striped bell bottoms and a not so easy to get “Property Of San Francisco Giants” tee-shirt. Me and my friend had no problem getting grown-ups to buy us beers (50 cents?). We were already dreading the first day of school…

    • unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:28 am

      I remember Dave Kingman butchering a play in RF to knock a foul ball fair for a 3 run homer.

      Game 2 of the 71 playoffs.

    • Macdog said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:55 am

      The first game I remember going to was Pads-Phils at the Vet in ’71 (and I have no idea why we went to this game). I noticed in the box they played the same night as your Kingman game, but the game I went to was the day before — 45 years ago today. Nate Colbert hit a Kingman-like bomb that might’ve been the longest HR in that first year at the Vet.

    • gianthead said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:55 am

      I was three and a half then…

      • chipower9 said, on August 24, 2016 at 1:50 pm

        I was 15 then…yeah, I am an old fuck! Big SIX OH next year.

    • unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 11:44 am

      How old were you?

  16. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:20 am

    The way I read it was Kelly didn’t relay the h&r sign to Bummie.

    • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:32 am

      then that means the runners got the signal from the dugout? that would seem odd.

      • gianthead said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:57 am

        I never played but doesn’t the third base coach signal the batter and runners are watching his signs???

      • unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 11:39 am

        Bummie gets the h & r signal from Kelly. Somebody missed something somewhere. Fuck I don’t know. Just another case of sloppy shit I suppose. It looked like we were tightening up our sloppy play when we won a couple games, but we are being stupid again.

      • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 12:33 pm

        If the two runners got the signal from Kelly that means Bum missed the sign and Bochy is covering for Bum for some reason.

  17. zumiee said, on August 24, 2016 at 11:52 am

    In addition to everything else going on, it has to rattle the teams’ confidence the way the bullpen gives up so much. Going back to that A’s series, when the Giants kept giving up big leads in that one game in particular. The team goes into battle, knowing in the back of their minds, that all their efforts can easily be in vain because of the bullpen. And there’s no fix available now. Watching Cleveland the other night, and Miller came in and struck out the side in the 9th in dominant fashion….we didn’t get a Miller, or Chapman, or Melancon, or whoever. Nobody of that caliber. Sure, teams weren’t particularly interested in our prospects, so that goes back to a few years recently of mediocre drafting. Things all fit together, and also can unravel together.
    Huge games tonight and tomorrow night; get back in the division race, or we’ll be looking at battling for a Wild Card spot only.

    • gianthead said, on August 24, 2016 at 1:47 pm

      Besides Cain and Peavy, I have been saying for the past month that it is obvious that Javier Lopez is completely done. Sad to say for what he has done and he is certainly one of the good eggs but he is finished. Why is ever being brought into a game let alone a crucial game??? Give him his gold watch and shake hands…

  18. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    Yeah, they are all snakebit in the pen. They’ve all looked decent at times, but they have also looked like gas cans. When Cain gets off the DL, do they DFA Peavy?

    • gianthead said, on August 24, 2016 at 5:38 pm

      They’ll get the Sept 1 expanded rosters to save everyone’s faces…

  19. chipower9 said, on August 24, 2016 at 2:01 pm

    Well, I am not throwing in the towel on winning the division, but something has to change. Principally:

    Our core guys/heart of the line-up have to start hitting like heart of the line-up guys.

    Bullpen must get its shit together.

    We have eight games left with LA. Rest of this series, three more in Smell-A in late September and the final three games of the regular season are against them in our house.

    The way things look now, equally important, if not MORE important than the games with the bambinos, is a four game set with the Redbirds in mid September.

    We also have four against the Cubbies early September at Wrigley. We must win each and every series against the rest of the west…Dbacks, Friars and Rox.

    37 games left. Time to put up or shut up. Which team will show up down the stretch?

    I am off to camp near Lassen through Sunday, so no idea what type of service I will have (only device I am taking is my phone). If I cannot check-in, make it an awesome few days Flap Universe, and GO GIGANTES!

  20. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    Just that were still talking about dipshit Kelly the clown( no pun intended Bozo) means theirs total dysfunctional situation going on in the dugout, signs being relayed,Boch are Wotus, spazzing out not wanting to even bother with Kelly’s lack of comprehesion of his position on the field which hello should be critical!!
    Hey if I’m Boch I’m throwing this idiot under the bus over my Ace pitcher anytime anyday!!!

  21. blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 2:51 pm

    The only way to get Belt going is to disparage his putrid play. Belt has 3 bombs in August after posting just one in the month of July. That’s a massive fail, especially since his last one was at the Phone park on August 13th. You then have to go back to August 6th, in Washington for another bomb. Meh.

    In DFS today, there are 13 1st baseman above him, i.e., he’s in the bargain bin (if you want to call it that) of the “Dollar Store.” Right above him is Kennys fucking Vargas and below him is C.J. Cron (who?).

    OK, now watch Belt rake tonight. Right, Chi?

    • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 3:13 pm

      I’m gonna guess Belt is gonna have an awful time trying to hit Hill’s curve ball. But maybe your tactic will work

  22. Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    Nunie leading off tonight and there’s a Gorkey’s sighting down the LU

    • blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 3:32 pm

      Figured as much. All of our lefties (especially Belt) will likely suffer. Is Gorkeys listed on DK? Nada on FD.

      • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 4:19 pm

        yes, he’s $2200. DK is miles ahead of fanduel in terms of listing available players. It sometimes takes FD 3 or 4 days to get a guy who’s been playing 3 or 4 days into their system. Lame.

  23. zumiee said, on August 24, 2016 at 3:38 pm

    Agent OOO gets the start at 2b. On the big stage.

  24. blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 4:06 pm

    Belt isn’t the only Giant having issues hitting HRs, as Grant Brisbee points out in his column titled, “The Giants are having historical dinger problems.”

    http://www.mccoveychronicles.com/2016/8/22/12594212/sf-giants-home-runs-blreererrfffpmmm

    • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 4:18 pm

      something important to note (at least I think it’s important): they don’t really have anyone on the team who tries to hit home runs. The Orioles have an entire LU that seems to swing from their heels on every pitch. But guys like Posey are happy just driving the ball to right center. Pagan and Span are just trying to hit line drives. Crawford and Panik don’t swing for the fences. So my point is that if you aren’t trying to hit them you aren’t going to hit as many as the guys who are constantly trying to hit them.
      None of this means I don’t wish they’d hit more bombs. 🙂

    • unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 4:23 pm

      Are you sure they are talking about hitting?

  25. Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    this picture is so awesome on so many levels

  26. Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    Kuip: “the fact that he’s in the line up at all is fortunate for Belt.” Ouch.

  27. Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 6:39 pm

    dropping Belt to 7th seems like a bad move. This guy is already a slumpy shoulder fuck, dropping down to 7th might ruin him….

    • blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 7:33 pm

      lulz . . . Oh, that tortured soul.

  28. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 24, 2016 at 6:52 pm

    There seem to be a lot of factors for why the team a) was in 1st place with best record in baseball at the break and b) has completely cratered since that time, but mainly I agree with Loo’s post this morning that Pence and Posey are keys for getting hot in the middle of the lineup and carrying the team, which they’ve each done in the past and sorely need to do now. IMO it’s on Pence. Without him performing in the middle of the lineup, which he was doing before his injury, there’s just *nothing* there. It’s like the lineup turns over after a few batters and then there’s still nothing there. It’s almost like having 2 mediocre half lineups. Need that “power glue” to hold the whole lineup together. I really thought Pence would’ve turned it on by now. I’m kinda wondering about “best years” being behind him already, or maybe still hurt, or maybe just…. nearing the end. Pence drives the bus when he’s on. No Pence, that bus ain’t going anywhere.

  30. James said, on August 24, 2016 at 7:41 pm

    It is ironic that Kuip — the very epitome of a low OBP/low K shitty ass player who should never have gotten nearly the number PAs he did over his career — is sitting in public judgment of someone like Belt.

    • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 7:44 pm

      yaaaassssss!!!!!!!!! San Diggity is going to lose his mind over this post. TedSpe last night, James tonight. We suck and there’s nothing to celebrate but all the great Flap vets are returning…..
      And what a fantastic return post it was. Spot on James.

        so where do you stand on this drop to the 7th spot by Bochy today? That’s gotta have you doing the slowest of burns, right?

  31. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 7:48 pm

    3 hits in the 1st and no runs. What joy did I miss this time?

    • djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:01 pm

      There were only 2 hits in the first…

      • unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:30 pm

        Ahh, yeah 2 in the 1st one in the 2nd

  32. blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 7:53 pm

    I can’t recall Posey ever questioning/looking askance at an ump.

  33. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:08 pm

    Another miserable inept cocksucker HP ump…

  34. blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:08 pm

    Loo, you watching the Bums broadcast? If so, what’s your opinion of Bobby Valentine (in the booth this evening). I know a lot of Flappers don’t like him, but I do and think he’s funny. Love his stories about managing in Japan.

    • djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:12 pm

      He’s ok, although I’m not crazy about his voice. Always sounds like he has to take a shit but he’s holding it in.
      I was campaigning for him to replace Alou before Bochy was hired. Twin was not a supporter of that idea…

  35. Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:09 pm

    here’s the deal: I think Brandon Belt has the best eye the game has ever seen. But he must be a damn simpleton to keep getting irritating at umps who call a ball that’s an inch out of the strike zone a strike. SWING THE FUCKING BAT. Umps aren’t gonna save you with a walk…….

    • James said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:15 pm

      But some times they do. And when you’re a terrible bad ball hitter, it remains your best strategy and keeps you modestly productive even when you’re on a cold streak.

      • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:26 pm

        at this point I think Belt has a rep with the umps–like he thinks he’s better than them. And they’re fucking him each chance they get. I really believe this is happening……

    • alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:17 pm

      You knew that was coming, we scatter 5 hits, get “SQUAT” like Kruk likes to ramble, and then Boom 1 swing by Turner and its 1zip..

  36. Macdog said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    Following on the computer, it seems like at least once every inning the Giants “fly out softly” or “ground out softly.”

    • blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:16 pm

      it’s absurd that this blistery fuck can come off the bench after a month or whatever and just shut us down……

    • snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:40 pm

      Agreed. I was watching the game in my hotel room, rare chance I get to watch on Tv. After top of third, I almost fell asleep watching these dudes. They like like they’re sleepwalking, ene though they got a few hits. Seriously, they looked like Bochy hosted a pregame red wine tasting for the squad. Get some damn energy going. I’m more fired up right now eating a chicken sausage pizza in the local Sauced here in Phoenix…

  39. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:44 pm

    This game is yet another bad example of shitty balls and strikes.

  40. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:45 pm

    Jesus Rich Hill swing is so pathetic even the 2nd base ump was laughing behind his back going into commercial break!
    I haven’t seen a swing that bad since former 49er Tom Holmoe played softball against me and struck out swinging on 2 straight pitches. Couldn’t believe he could even be a football player after he displayed his horrible softball skills..

    • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:48 pm

      Great story AK. I remember meeting Tom at a wine and art festival in Cupertino (I think?). Nice guy. Good defensive back during the Niners glory years. I think Randy Cross was with him at the same festival that day. Another friendly, personable guy.

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 8:56 pm

    Should be 2-0

    • blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:07 pm

      Yeah, my only regret is plugging in Nunez versus Turner at 3rd base for one of my DFS LUs. Pfffttt! Doubtful I will win money tonight.

  48. blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:05 pm

    Snarkk, I figured 2 Flappers would remember Tom Holmoe – you and Flavor. He was the gift who kept on giving too, because shortly after he resigned, the Bears were found guilty of major NCAA violations when a professor retroactively added two football players to a class he had taught the previous spring in order to keep them eligible. Athletic department officials knew that the players were ineligible, but did not disclose it to anyone. As a result, the NCAA slapped Cal with five years’ probation, stripped the Bears of their four victories from the 1999 season, banned them from postseason play in 2002 and took away nine scholarships over four years. When Jeff Tedford led the Bears to a 7-5 record in 2002, they were not allowed to play in a bowl game.

    Yeah, I suspected you would remember this. Ironically, he has probably been the best athletic director in the history of Brigham Young university.

    • unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:11 pm

      I just thought it was apropos that Holmoe went to the Niners. He had a few good years.

      At some point Bochy has to think, hmm, how do I get guys into scoring position?

  49. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    Hmmm. He called that pitch 2 pitches ago, 000. Think he’ll call it again?

  50. Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:08 pm

    Nice walk. Belt deciding to leave it up to Agent 000 is another example of him not understanding shit but a strike zone. I’m not against walks but I am against Belt obsessively looking for them and he has to understand where he is in the batting order right now…

    • James said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:13 pm

      He swung at the two pitches he could do anything with! If he had lined a single on the 3-1 97 mph off the outside corner fastball he missed, would the Giants have been better off?

      • Flavor said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:17 pm

        i’m steaming about him for his post all star break production. It sucks.

      • James said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:18 pm

        Understood.

  51. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:12 pm

    Maybe it is, afterall, just a Brad Penny year. Er, sorry, bad penny year. Come to think of it, I think Brad Penny’s year in SF was also a bad penny year….

    Holmoe was totally Opie from Mayberry.Like I said did not no how to swing a bat, average white boy speed for a DB,but made a few plays took keep his job. Stunk at Cal. They gave him way to long a leash there. The last year what 1 win are 2??

  56. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:20 pm

    Christ. 0-2 to i can’t find the strike zone. every fucking time.

  57. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    Buster missed that mistake.

  58. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    Fuck. The catcher is setting up 2′ outside and Blanton is piping them down the middle

  59. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:36 pm

    comeon. one fucking HR

  60. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:40 pm

    Does it really matter that Pence got a big hit with Pagan anchored at 1st no chance to score and now we probably won’t..

  61. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:41 pm

    2 hangers in a row. fuck

  62. theroooster said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:41 pm

    Warning track power, indeed.

      How is your 28 year dinner going??

      • blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:44 pm

        Good one unca 🙂

  63. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    Blanton should have given up 3 runs there.

  64. blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    Ahh shit . . . Look what the cat dragged in. KFC.

    We’ve come full circle now that the rooster is here. lulz.

  65. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    Called that one…
    Atleast if Pagan was running on the play we could have had some excitement when Kelly sends him home and gets nailed..,

  66. snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    Crawford just missed that one for a 3 run dinger. Giants need to pull a run out of their ass in the 9th….

    • James said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:52 pm

      He probably didn’t miss it. That was more likely Dodger stadium late in the evening.

  67. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:50 pm

    Triple OOO hits 3rd for that spirited winning hit..

  68. snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:51 pm

    I’ll admit, I don’t really know who half of these Dodgers are. I do know the Giants, although I’m starting to try to forget em…

  69. snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    How many x has Span rolled to 2d base this season?…

  70. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    Selective Sallies at the plate.

  71. snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    Belt could bunt to third and get an automatic hit. I would do that…

  72. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    About as many as Rohand bouncing to 3rd,..

  73. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    He’d get a fucking double out of it

  74. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:57 pm

    But no. The fact we don’t have a pinch hitter for 000 is the final insult.

  75. theroooster said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    After that American League madness last night, order restored with the 1-0 pitcher’s duel. Sweep?

  76. snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    Pathetic…

  77. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    I wish these fuckers woul put the strike zone on these broadcasts. This shit isn’t even close to the zone.

  78. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    Well, How long before we fall out of the WC race?

  79. James said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    I guess my return didn’t help much . . . .

    • snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:02 pm

      I did enjoy your rip of Kuip — nicely done…

  80. Macdog said, on August 24, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    Your San Francisc000000000 Giants.

  81. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:02 pm

    Score 5? Lose by 4. Hold ’em to 1? Lose by 1.

    Fuck this team. Fuck this shit. Fuck this line up. I can’t take this crap much longer.

    2 games on the Marlins.

    Cueto makes one mistake and loses. Blanton left 5 pitches up in the zone and nothing.

    • snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:06 pm

      Middle of lineup is AWOL. Bench again is a popgun crew. 6 weeks of this is no slump. It may be closer to reality than the first 100 games. Callups can’t come soon enough…

  82. theroooster said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:03 pm

    Bum and Cueto lined up for the one-two. Got the 0-2 instead.

    • snarkk said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:08 pm

      3 titles since 2010, chump. You can crow when the bums actually win something…

    • blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:16 pm

      Hey douche bag, you obviously have read John Steinbeck, who famously wrote, “Perhaps the less we have, the more we are required to brag.”

      • djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 10:28 pm

        John Steinbeak, maybe?

    • unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2016 at 8:07 am

      Good luck folding in the playoffs. Again, Capon.

  83. mrsprtdude said, on August 24, 2016 at 11:05 pm

    Agony. Never can i remeber being so down about this team. All about expectations, and now we suck sooo bad it’s painful. How can a line up with Posey Pense Belt Crawford Pagan ( hitting .290 plus) suck for this long??? My biggest grip is Posey pense. Allstar players who have been aweful…When are we ever going to get a clutch hit?
    Blade. Crazy stat in the HR drought list. Barry led the giants in homers 13 times. Crazy!

    • zumiee said, on August 24, 2016 at 11:35 pm

      Posey had two hits and threw out a runner.
      Tough crowd.

  84. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2016 at 11:20 pm

    It’s the curse of #16 who died in 2016, Jim Ray Hart.
    No patch. No chance.
    Payback from the grave…
