Losses Pile up For Losing Losers

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 25, 2016

There’s not much to say after a 1-0 loss. I guess it could have been worse. 10-0? Getting shut out by some blistery fuck with herpes on his hand is one of the lower moments of the season.

Here is the bottomest of lines: We are 11-25 since the all star break. That’s not bad. It’s the worst record in all of baseball. When you are THE WORST over that stretch of time it’s silly to even consider winning a division title and hoping for a wild card spot is just a bad, desperate look.

If I saw some fight in the eyes of this team or their manager I’d probably manage to find some fight in my own. But I don’t see it and I’m tired of watching the same bullshit nearly night in and night out.

I’m not saying they aren’t trying. I’m saying that we may have wildly overestimated their abilities this year. San Dawg bought a 1977 RV with 2 other buddies yesterday. They spent the night drinking beers and voting on what to name it. That sounds like a significantly better way to spend an evening than what the rest of us did……

    Part of me wants you to go back to Snarks 9:13 and fix the spelling of Jon. The other part of me thinks you should leave it as it is. Sometimes mistakes like that are beautiful. Kind of like in “Everbody Wants Some” where David Lee starts ad-libbing at the exact same time Eddie rings out a massive power chord. An obvious flub that Ted Templeman left in there, much to the delight of me and my friends.

      Snarkk’s post reminds me of some movie I watched in the early 90’s with some chick and I can’t remember her name or the name of the movie. Then the mariachi music started playing. Tumble weeds were everywhere, rolling……..

  2. Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:30 pm

    That makes up for all those bullshit strikes last night.

  3. blade3colorado said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    Glad to see the table turned regarding Turner. Dude has been a thorn in the Giants side forever.

  4. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:35 pm

    Think it’s time to pull Moore for Casilla?

  5. Flavor said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:38 pm

    and #64 hits the PoTD best of…….

  6. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    Does anyone know or care why Pence came out of the game?

    • willedav said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:46 pm

      K and K didn’t know but seemed very concerned at the time and no word on it either. Hmmnn.
      Hernandez did his best Pence impression in that AB against Chavez, swinging at 5 pitches off the plate.

      • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:51 pm

        So was Vin…

  7. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    Normally, might be concerned about Pence leaving. But these are not normal times. He really hasn’t done much to pick up and carry this team. I want to see Parker up with the big team.

  8. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:45 pm

    They just showed Rags calling the bullpen.
    Hopefully it wasn’t the Giant bullpen…

  9. sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:46 pm

    Please tell me at least one of you will cue up Everybody Wants Some and listen for that bit I’m talking about. It’s when David Lee starts saying “I like the way the line runs down the back of the stocking. I’ve always liked those kind of high heels too. No, no, no. dont take them off, leave them on. That’s it, a little bit more to the right. OW-OW!!
    Vintage DLR. You’ll be entertained, I promise.

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:55 pm

      I’ll do it after the game. It’ll be a tough one for me, though. 🙂

      • sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:57 pm

        I know it will, Zum, but I appreciate it, man. LULZ!

    • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:20 pm

      Dawg… I think VanHalen plays that song in “Better off Dead”!
      Movie cracks me up, John Cusak is wearing his dumbass Porky type hat,and he’s making this crazy ass hamburger come alive and their playing that song, it hilarious!!
      Cue it up Loo..or anyone else..

  10. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    That was potentially a key moment in the game. Nice K

  11. willedav said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:52 pm

    Only Loo would likely know this, but wasn’t there a famous game with Steve Barber of Balt who lost in 10?

  12. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    Moore’s at 118 pitches…..

  13. sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    I love Vin, but it has always bugged me that he insists on saying Bruce “BOW-Shee.” It’s as if he feels that he alone knows better than the rest of the world how to pronounce the guys name.

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:00 pm

      Know what you mean, Dawg. I have the same problem with John Sterling who says Jose Bo-tista and Warner Wolf who used to say Dwight Goo-den…

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:04 pm

      I’m no expert on the Spanish language, but I was pretty sure Juan Uribe’s name is pronounced oo-ree-bay. Hated, absolutely hated, Joe Buck’s yoo-ree-bay in the 2010 Series….

  14. sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:06 pm

    FUCK YES SPAN!

  15. blade3colorado said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:06 pm

    Didn’t Moore have TJ surgery? Dunno . . . Hope this works out.

  16. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    Come on, Dave Gimme a break.

    One break. Coming up!

  17. blade3colorado said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    Span with 2 outstanding catches. Come on guys . . . Dude is a stud.

  18. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    Span 2 awesome plays tonight!!!

  19. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    Well, this team has needed a spark, someone to pick them up. Maybe this was it.

  20. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    But everyone but Jon mispronounce Mar-eee-CHAL.

  21. Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:10 pm

    Dammmmmmmmmmmn!

  22. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:10 pm

    You got to be killing me,…

  23. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:10 pm

    Oops. Oh well, doesn’t matter. Still a great performance.

  24. sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:11 pm

    Humor me and lay out for that damn thing. If it goes to the wall, so be it.

  25. blade3colorado said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:12 pm

    Just missed it.

  26. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:12 pm

    Fuck you Seager!!!
    Great pitching Matt Moore!!
    No- hitters can be a bitch to get, every break is needed for it to happen!!

  27. zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:12 pm

    Get the win now.

  28. Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:13 pm

    Yeah, but Duffy went 2 for 4 today.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:15 pm

      Was it Kruk or Kuip who joked about him going 5 for 5? That was funny.

      • Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:17 pm

        Really? I had the Scully-cast on MLB Network.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:21 pm

      Yeah, they eventually admitted they were joking and then said he went 2 for 4, along with both of them saying Duffy was an outstanding person.

  29. snarkk said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:13 pm

    Cockroaches…

  30. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    I think Moore like like Seth Macfarlane.

    • Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:19 pm

      Good one, I was trying to figure out who he looks like and that’s it.

  31. sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    Great win, but fuck, the no hitter would have been cool.

  32. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    Pence climbed out of the dugout for the post game handshake.
    Guess he’s ok…

  33. Lurker John said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    Losing the no-no is no biggie. Great start. The team needed it and he needed it. Span with 2 huge plays and a clutch hit. Casilla with a one pitch save. Great win. Maybe this will get these guys rolling.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:15 pm

      Agree, LJ, this was sorely needed.

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:16 pm

      Agree, LJ. I’ve been saying for years that no-hitters for the most part are overrated flukes.
      Just win the damn game…

      • Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:28 pm

        Yeah, Heston’s never been the same…

  34. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:15 pm

    With the Bravos coming to town the hope is we beat the shit out of them.

    Need a sweep.

  35. zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    Gorkys took a step back on Seager’s big swing, and that cost him.

  36. snarkk said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:18 pm

    Moore came up bigger than huge. Big diff between 4 out and just 2 out…

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:20 pm

  37. xoot said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:19 pm

    that was a fun game to follow pitch by pitch. weak ass hit to break it up, but that fluke did allow the execrable turner to make the last out. I like that. Moore’s smile after Span made that second great play was great.

    • Lurker John said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:21 pm

      I had to look up execrable. lol

  40. willedav said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    Loved Jim Maloney Loo, thx for the box, awesome Reds LU. Tommy Harper oaktown guy too.
    Barber went 8 and 2 thirds with a no no vs. Tigers (1967) but had loaded bases on walks. Stu Miller came in and finished no hitter but an error allowed run to score, and Tigers won 2-1.

  41. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    Bobby Evans basically made this trade for Moore specifically to counter with the Dodgers heavy LH LU..
    Looks like a solid move now!

  42. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    Hell of a game for Span.

  43. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    Hammy tightness for Pence.

  44. Lurker John said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:33 pm

  46. zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:35 pm

    This will make me sound like a jerk- have we seen that kind of hustle from Span on a daily basis? Maybe.

    • sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:39 pm

      OH NO YOU DIDN’T! Now Span is being accused of being a loafer on top of everything else??? Yer killin’ me Zum!

        I had never seen that–thanks for sharing!

  49. zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    Alright, that Van Halen song wasn’t bad. The guitar-work was actually pretty interesting.

    • sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:50 pm

      I will gladly settle for that review–coming from an aficionado like you !

      • zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:58 pm

      I think yours says you’re a leg man…

    • Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:01 pm

      Mine has the Artful Dodger connection.

  51. sandog said, on August 25, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    I disagree with all of you who think losing the no-hitter was no big deal. While I agree no hitters are kind of flukey, I think no hitting the Dodgers in their home stadium with our key acquisition on the mound could have been something that gave this team a much-needed spark.
    Was I the only person screaming for Gorkys to dive? I wanted that no-hitter BADLY.

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:00 pm

      A dive would have been nice. The run was meaningless.

      • zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:02 pm

        His first step was back, though, and he was screwed.

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:07 pm

      If I had any energy left, I would look up how the Giants did following Timmy’s 2 no-hitters.
      I don’t…

      • zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:11 pm

        He did really lousy after one of them, at least.

      • Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:27 pm

        2013: Lost to Reds 11-0, All-Star break in between.

        2014: Beat the Cards 5-0, threw 8 shutout innings.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:14 pm

      Totally with you Dog!
      No hitting the Dogpile in their stinking Latrine would have been awesome!
      It qualifys as a great statement game, 4 down would have been the death knell, 2 back is now douable especially with the shittiest team in baseball ( the Braves, apologies to your wife Zumie)coming into town!
      But yeah if Pence hamstring didn’t tighten up, that maniac with his VanGough eyes would make that play no problem, he lays it all out in that situation!!!

      • zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:16 pm

        The Braves won two against the Giants in Atlanta, and I still don’t get how that happened.

  52. zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:10 pm

    Really tired of the commercial where the dad dresses the dog like a lion so the kid will play with him. It’s my least favorite commercial out there, and I hate a lot of commercials.

  53. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:17 pm

    How did the Giants do the day after Gaylord Perry no-hit the Cards in ’68?

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:18 pm

      They got no-hit themselves. Fun fact!

      • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:26 pm

        Yup. By the immortal Ray Washburn…

    • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:30 pm

      Well how about Johnny VanDerMeer..
      He throws a nohitter and says:WTF, I’ll throw one in my next start as well!!

  54. zumiee said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:17 pm

    Anything less than a sweep of Atlanta is a disappointment.

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:22 pm

      In case you didn’t know, Peavy is listed as the starter for Saturday…

      • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:26 pm

        Inspiring fact Loo!
        Peavy are Cain = PAIN

  55. Macdog said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:21 pm

    Yay end of losing streak, I can watch Heidi Watney’s highlights again!

  56. mrsprtdude said, on August 25, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    Vowed i would not watch. Caught a tiny bit accidently on the radio ( LA Dodger station on my presets). Crawford out on a great catch to end the 6th with 2 runners on. Of course. said “Fuck” to myself, and turned it off. No knowledge of the game going on. Fuck. Saw the Moore non no update end of 7 yay!.
    turned it on in time to see the Span catch and then the bloop. HUGE win. Saved our season maybe:)

  57. pawliekokonuts said, on August 26, 2016 at 12:05 am

    I started watching in the 6th. What a thrill. So it was a 1-hitter. No matter. No less of an accomplishment. The bloop was uncatchable. Tough call for Bochy. It made me a Matt “I Look Like George Clooney” Moore fan. Span’s catch near the end. Wow! I watched “Walter Mitty” just before I started watching the game. Then stopped. Just finished. That movie was made for me. G’night, girls.

  58. unca_chuck said, on August 26, 2016 at 7:26 am

    Pence would have caught that. Gorky Park went back on the ball.

    No matter. They needed that win in the worst way. Going Sunday. Bummie’s on the hill.

    Gearing up for the Sherpa game.
