3 Run Explosion

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 7, 2016

Three runs in 2 games at Coors. I guess the + is that we’ve *only* given up 8. Anyone else have a problem with Nunie replacing The Invisible Span at the top of the LU? OBP is an overrated approach to determining who should lead off. I fully endorse Nunie at the top of the LU until further notice.

Another lefty Colorado starter today. I wonder how many of our lefty vets sit again today…..

    So, uh, hey guys. See we are in a race together. Cool, cool. Look forward to our visit in a week or so.

    Cardinal Devil Magic vs. Giants Even Magic, which will win? 🙂

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 9:23 am

      Hey, nice 3-bomb ninth last night! We could use an inning like that.

      • Cardinal70 said, on September 7, 2016 at 9:27 am

        Pulled it out from the jaws of defeat. I’d like to see it spark this team to a run, but they’ve never been much on momentum this year.

        ‘Course, three runs was all you needed last night, right?

    • chipower9 said, on September 7, 2016 at 11:54 am

      Nice to see you here. I have been telling folks here that the four game set with you guys mid-month is probably as important, if not more so, than our remaining games against the dodgers. Should be interesting down the stretch!

      • Cardinal70 said, on September 7, 2016 at 11:56 am

        I never expected for those games to be so meaningful, but you are right, they are going to be very big, especially for us. Look forward to hanging out here more as the series gets closer!

    Realistic goal now is host the WC game. Division win looks like minor miracle…

  3. Macdog said, on September 7, 2016 at 9:42 am

    One pitch in and the Mets have a 1-0 lead.

  4. djloo27 said, on September 7, 2016 at 9:44 am

    I’m hoping for Giants-Mets at Citifield so I can be there.
    Screw home field where all our homeruns die.

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 10:22 am

      I totally agree. I think I even said it before the Pitt WC game, not being at home can almost be an advantage for this team. Too much pressure and generally suckitude weighing the team down in SF

  5. gianthead said, on September 7, 2016 at 9:52 am

    Nunez has not been a superstar since the trade but when he hits the ball, he hits it pretty hard consistently. Specs has that quirky baseball skill of doing the right thing at the right time. Keep Gorkys in there as well for another game. Keep the line-up as is and send the fear of God to Span and Belt and see if they come out Friday pissed off and ready to take it out on the Douchebacks…

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 10:30 am

      Nunie makes things happen. He provides energy in ways the staid Span has never done. That’s more important than simply tunnel visioning OBP. He’s also got more power and speed. Nunie should be our LO hitter the rest of the year.

      • giants54 said, on September 7, 2016 at 10:34 am

        Completely agree. He doesn’t give them the long ab’s, walks etc but right now they need a spark. And maybe hitting 1 will get Ed N going. Hitting .229 in the 6-7 ain’t cutting it.

  6. alleykat69 said, on September 7, 2016 at 11:31 am

    I know the Descalso family when my daughter(Callie) use to play fast pitch softball with Gina.Her father George and even Dan would come watch them play..
    So last night had to be rough for the local kid when he made that error in the 9th that led to the winning run..

  7. zumiee said, on September 7, 2016 at 11:55 am

    Interesting comments from Krukow yesterday morning on KNBR, regarding Casilla. He said that, basically, Casilla doesn’t know what he’s doing regarding the way you use pitches to set up other pitches. I guess he’s been shaking off Posey quite a bit. I haven’t really noticed it, but some pitchers are very subtle in how they signal the catcher, and the catcher knows when they’re “shaking off” the sign. And several times, he shook off the pitch Posey called this season, and then gave up an HR or an extra-base hit on the next pitch. Last night, whoever was doing play by play on TV at the moment, said that Casilla had shaken off a pitch, and Posey put the signal for the same pitch, insisting on the pitch. Casilla has got to be frustrating to work with. Krukow mentioned (and I have no idea how Krukow knows) that Nathan told Casilla that he was someone he could talk with, if he wanted Nathan’s help in any way. It seemed like Krukow was doubting that Casilla would take up Nathan on it.

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 12:18 pm

      Casilla should give Posey nothing but a knowing dude head nod no matter what he calls.

  8. chipower9 said, on September 7, 2016 at 11:56 am

    I am down with Nunez staying in the lead-off. Even if OBP was of substance, he and Span have similar numbers. But yeah, I like Nunie in the 1 hole.

  9. eddacker said, on September 7, 2016 at 12:14 pm

    Of no particular import, my roommate and I were talking giants so he dug into his 1982 Fleer cards and came up with these.

  10. Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 12:17 pm

    Brian Dozier, 39 bombs, that is all…..

  11. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 7, 2016 at 12:30 pm

    I listened to Krukow’s call to KNBR this morning and caught that bit about Casilla too. Casilla always looks like he’s off in his own world or completely nutso so I can’t say that shaking off Posey is all that surprising.

    Sometimes Krukow’s unbridled homer-ism is pretty awesome to behold. In addition to the Casilla tidbit he informed us that Samardzija has found something new in his approach. It all goes back to a new grip on the curve ball and his athleticism (of course – he played college football you know). “What we saw last night is what we can expect for the rest of his career as a Giant” I thought to myself, hmmmfff…that’s sounds fantastic Kruk!

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 12:57 pm

      wait, who played college football? Kruk? Or Smarge?

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 7, 2016 at 1:04 pm

        It’s a little known fact that Krukow’s first love was basketball. Additionally, he was originally drafted as a catcher and is quite athletic himself. That’s how he so easily recognizes Samardzija’s prowess.

      • chipower9 said, on September 7, 2016 at 2:25 pm

        Smardj played wide receiver for Notre Dame…

    • snarkk said, on September 7, 2016 at 1:01 pm

      Casilla is gone next year. Bochy needs to manage him accordingly…

  12. snarkk said, on September 7, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    Talked today with a friend that was at the Monday game, the 6-0 disaster. She said the team was lifeless. There was a good contingent of Gyros fans behind the SF dugout rooting them on, which she said the players largely did not even acknowledge. Apparently pissed off a lot of fans. I know BF dismisses it, but she said there was a lot of fan talk and “I heard” kind of stuff that internally, the players really got pissed off by the Duffy trade. Hopefully the Flap contingent at the game tonight can give us a report on the team’s apparent place on the Dauber-o-Meter…

    • chipower9 said, on September 7, 2016 at 2:26 pm

      It may be a bit tough to get a read from the club level.

  13. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 7, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    Look, I was as big a fan of Duffy as anybody but the players tanking the season because of it? Or they just got so mad they forgot how to hit after the AS break? Come on…

  14. Macdog said, on September 7, 2016 at 1:40 pm

    The Giants were well into the freefall with a 4-11 record since the break before Duffy got traded, so what’s their excuse before Aug. 1?

  15. chipower9 said, on September 7, 2016 at 2:22 pm

    Nunie in the lead-off again. Specs gets another start at 2nd. And thank goodness…Suarez instead of Cain!

    1. Eduardo Nunez (R) 3B
    2. Angel Pagan (S) LF
    3. Buster Posey (R) C
    4. Hunter Pence (R) RF
    5. Gorkys Hernandez (R) CF
    6. Brandon Belt (L) 1B
    7. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
    8. Kelby Tomlinson (R) 2B
    9. Albert Suarez (R) P

  16. chipower9 said, on September 7, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    With all due respect to other Flappers, I think it is totally ludicrous to think that the Duffy trade has a big role in the Giants tailspin. I don’t buy that shit for one second.

  17. alleykat69 said, on September 7, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    Totally agree Chi,
    And if anything his fat-ass cat was the main reason his fan base love was strong…

  18. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 7, 2016 at 2:55 pm

    Good to see Tomlinson get some run after coming through with the game winning hit last night. I’m sort of surprised to see Belt back in the LU. He should sit another day. At least Brownie managed to get a hit yesterday.

    The Bums didn’t self-destruct after the Ellis trade…

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 5:16 pm

      no but it was still a dumb trade that made them worse.

  21. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 7, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    That makes 14 relief pitchers that the club is carrying.

    Baggs reports that Gorky’s birthday is the reason for starting him but he got a knock and scored a run yesterday so keep him in there as long as old man Span is…old. Baggs also reminds us of that time in 2011 when the Giants sent Belt down on his birthday.

    lulz. Poor Slumpy Shoulders. Bochy hates his ass.

    • zumiee said, on September 7, 2016 at 4:58 pm

      Hey, he wept one time and made Bochy feel uncomfortably awkward on national TV. Bochy remembers stuff like that. 🙂

  22. blade3colorado said, on September 7, 2016 at 4:41 pm

    Passing on the game this evening . . . Long story, but short version is that I injured myself. Chi was very understanding and I feel real bad about missing the opportunity to see him and Unca. 😦

    • zumiee said, on September 7, 2016 at 4:55 pm

      Ah, dang, that’s too bad. But health is the bigger priority, definitely. Hope you get well soon.

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 5:15 pm

      that sucks! Is it going to mess with your trip? I almost forgot about this mini-flapalooza. What are Chuck and Chuck doing out there? They didn’t just go out for the game did they?

      • blade3colorado said, on September 7, 2016 at 5:33 pm

        Thanks Zum. Flav, I injured a muscle in my upper back yesterday while jobbing out all day at home – so hopefully, it is just extreme back fatigue and nothing else. Last night was painful, but this morning I felt better after taking more Ibuprofen. However, around lunch today, I was worse then last night. Consequently, I didn’t see myself sitting in a baseball stadium chair for at least 2 hours (and probably longer). I doubt it will affect my trip on Tuesday, but the way I feel at the moment, yeah, a 20-25 hour trip in an airline seat would not be ideal (without massive drug and/or sleeping aids to knock me out). Sigh.

  23. zumiee said, on September 7, 2016 at 5:40 pm

    The Mets are already winner, winner, chicken dinner, today.

      i was surprised Mac didn’t get a start today.

  29. djloo27 said, on September 7, 2016 at 6:53 pm

  31. Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 7:09 pm

    I like Strickland, probably more than anyone else here, but I really don’t want to see his string fastball get blasted into outer space tonight…..

  32. zumiee said, on September 7, 2016 at 7:51 pm

    It’s pretty amazing- in the last week or so, the Dodgers have started four rookie starting pitchers. Urias, Stripling, De Leon, and Stewart.
    And the Giants are afraid to start even one.

  33. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 7, 2016 at 8:03 pm

    30+ years of losing garners a lot of high draft picks. The Giants have shown they’ll promote pitchers that they think can compete. Take Stripling out of that group and the Giants don’t have comparable arms to bring up.

    Nice to see Pence rounding into form.

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 8:10 pm

      some guys just have the dream of being a pitcher since they were wee lads. Take Smarge for example, he wanted to be a pitcher since tee ball. He stuck to his trade. Boom, dream realized.

  34. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 7, 2016 at 8:22 pm

    Yeah, we all dreamt about it didn’t we? Samardzija was a great athlete as a kid. He lettered in 3 sports and even got a scholarship to play college ball.

    • Flavor said, on September 7, 2016 at 8:51 pm

      Hell of a college pitcher. I’m just assuming I never checked his stats

  35. pawliekokonuts said, on September 7, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    I suppose it’s been said here tonight, but one cannot overestimate the importance of taking this series. Might it be — if it ends in a W — the first road series win since the ASG? Anyway, some torture is brewing. I’m getting ahead of reality. It’s a defect I curry favor to.

  36. pawliekokonuts said, on September 7, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    The Yankees are playing their best ball of the year. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think I’d be happy for them to beat the Red Sox in the WC game if it came to that. Why? Because all the media peeps have assumed it’s all for the Red Sox, Ortiz, all that. The hell. Not so fast, bruh. That’d shock ’em.

CR Announcers…”Giant outfielders “extremely deep” just before blooper falls. next batter..the guy says “now the outfielders half to pinch in to try and cut down the winning run on a single”… If they play it straight up the blooper is caight, and then Pence catches the next one???FUCK!!!

  65. zumiee said, on September 7, 2016 at 9:06 pm

    Nathan is given a blown save, and Casilla gets credit for a hold. What a joke. Yeah, Casilla really “held” things together out there. Bochy looks like an idiot to keep using Casilla as closer. I’d demote the guy and be done with it. Bochy has a lot of well-deserved capital built up, for obvious reasons, but he’s managing like an idiot regarding Casilla.

    i don’t fault Nathan much at all. He got whoever the fuck that was to pop out to LF. ANYONE gets to that. I don’t care how deep he was playing, Pagan got a shit jump and took a meandering path to the ball. Then with bases loaded 1-0 he had to come in to the last guy. Nathan’s stuff looked good. And he’s infinitely calmer than Casilla out there.

    I’m on the train in being down on Bochy at times, but seriously, who else of the Giants relievers has been worth a shit the last 2 months that we could trust with a lead? No one else has stepped up in even a small way to take the job from Casilla. That’s the problem. Sadly for us tonight was an example.
    Of course Nothing I hate more than a guy getting 2 quick outs and then Bochy pulling them for the stupid as fuck lefty righty thing he loves so much. EVERY reliever used or warming up in every game. No trust and tired arms. That’s on Bochy…

      • snarkk said, on September 7, 2016 at 10:24 pm

        You’re right zum. I looked at the MLB highlights. 1-2 pitch. Posey had the target low and outside, Casilla grooved what looked like a fastball down Broadway just above knee high. Total gopher ball pitch to a guy who doesn’t miss “hit me” pitches. I don’t know how you can throw that kind of pitch to this guy. Absolutely pathetic. Nathan’s pitch wasn’t much better that got clubbed for the game winner…

    I’m with zum. Bochy not only “looks” like an idiot, he IS an idiot running Casilla out there again and again. Bochy has a lot of capital to burn, but damn, he’s made a hash of a lot of moves this second half. WTF is he waiting for on Casilla? The guy is gone after this season. Is Bochy afraid the guy will go south on him if demoted? Who gives a shit? Put ANYBODY in the 9th to start a save, but NOT Casilla. 0-2 on Arenado, and he gives up the dinger. I’d like to have heard Krukow for real between commercial breaks about Casilla. If Bochy puts him in to start a next save opportunity, then Bochy is certifiably insane…

    The usual Bruce Bochy throw in the usual exasperated drawl post game agony..
    Wellllllll we battled hard, reallllll tough bloop hit that fell in no mans land( wellll into Pagans glove should of happened but Wtf???)
    And wellllllll my main guy Santiago launching pad Casilla, you knowwww he battled hard to get that O-2 count, and wellll he might of shooook off my 3 W/S rings best catcher in the game Buster, because he’s just another dumb shit DR smoking to much mota, that thinks he has a brain but obviously doesn’t..Butttt dang gum it I’m sticking with this parasite till death do us part are until his “VESA RUNS OUT” and he pulls a Angel Villanova moment and ends up in a rat infested prison where the only blown save he will receive is with “Bubba and his Hershey Speed Highway”

      Visa….,, Fuucck I’m still pissssed!!
      I’m like that control tower Capt in “Top Gun” after Maverick&Goose did their flyby and buzzed the tower, and his coffee went all over him, and he yells out.. “I Want Butts”!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tell you what – I’d keep Specs and Hernandez in to play. These guys are playing hard and with energy. Let Span and Panik continue to rest. Hernandez has a glove out there, and he’s got speed. Not a lot of bat, but hey, let’s see what he can do. Keep Nunie at the leadoff hole — that is a must…

      Agree Snarkk!
      Besides 12 cups of coffee Pence, these 2 dudes Specs& Gorkys Park have the energy needed for a last gasp run.You have to be agressive, and I mean steals and heads up hustle like that Gorky double on the infield basically you don’t see that play unless your Mays are Henderson are Clemente& Rose!!
      Fuck it Bochy stop looking like your ready to hang me up with your comatose look and “”SNAP OUT OF IT” You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain if you let a few key pieces play their game and start making things happen instead of the usual stop sign and base to base team!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    FUCK! I am “batting” like .200 in games I have attended this year. I was at that fucking meltdown against Baltimore and now this, and we won’t even go into that right coast swing that Blade and I made!

    I am done for the year! NO MORE fucking Giants games for me! Un-fucking-real! I had a bad feeling when Casilla gave-up the lead-off jack!

    I’ll have a ledge please. Make it a tall one, a double!

    But I did get to see UncaC and knock back a cold one. Only redeeming part of the night…

    Born in SF, And even had orange& black blanket in my crib so I was told ( hey my parents were die hard Dodger haters) but this run right now ( can’t win a series, hell cant win 3 games in row in the 2nd half which I’m sure even the bottom feeders have pulled off is really wearing on me!!
    Even extra ice cubes(up to 4 cubes Snarkk) in my Makers and My new favorite “Buffalo Trace”bad ass smooth blended whiskey, is not helping!! I know it’s just baseball and their are other things to do in life, and I’m on the ledge ready to jump,and then I leap but I see a vision,and it Santiago Casilla reaching out for me, but of course he misses my hand for another “Blown Save” and I splatter on the rocks below!!!

      Hang in there, Kat! The Giants have more games left to test our endurance.

    • snarkk said, on September 7, 2016 at 11:32 pm

      This loss deserves a “skink” coming on, for sure…

    This pitch-chart posted at McC Chronicles is more evidence of how awful Casilla was.

    Chi’s record, of attending Ls, is high, maybe we should send Chi and Unca to attend all the rest of the seasons’s Dodger games at the Latrine…

    • chipower9 said, on September 8, 2016 at 5:48 am

      LMAO. That plan would probably work better than any the Giants have employed in the 2nd half!
