A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Engage Operation EYB

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 5, 2016

I loved last night’s game. Even the strikeouts. As the game wore on it became a game to watch within the game. Good thing I wasn’t playing a drinking game. All those k’s would have sent me to the ER. And who doesn’t enjoy a walk off? There are critics of the wild card format but I’m not one of them. An instant Game 7 to kick off the post season? That is fantastic. And if the WC teams or the fans grouse about only getting one game here’s an idea: win your damn division.

My A’s fan buddy, The Boney One, texted me at 4:32am today looking for my prediction on the game tonight. I just texted back “excitement” and left it at that. It’s the bare minimum of what we all get today and into tonight.

Even if they lose, I’m pretty content just getting to this game. How did the worst team in baseball make the post season? Think about that. And it’s not even arguable, with stats or your own eyeballs, that we weren’t the worst team in all of mlb in the second half of the season.

But here we are. I’m down with a crazy 3 week run. I don’t expect it but I also didn’t expect the 2014 flag and that’s flying like a boss right now.

So whatever, no expectations. But I’m confident because of who’s taking the hill. Excitement is definitely in the air. On the east side of the Dumbarton Bridge there are salt ponds. Savy locals know when it’s time to roll up the window. I hope NY fans know what’s up but there’s only so much they can do to withstand the EYB that’s wafting towards Citi Field right now. It’s coming and it’s even and it’s bullshit and so far (engage knowing dude head nod) no one has been able to stop it……

    Listen how quiet the ESPN announcers got. Fuck them!

    • chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:13 pm

      No shit, Wilco…I was just thinking that brother!

    • Bozo said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:13 pm

      Agreed.

    • Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:13 pm

      Yeah, ruined their dream match-up.

  28. Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:13 pm

    I saw Familia implode against the Nats early in the season, at Citi Field, and I was hoping…

  29. Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:14 pm

    That park is like a tomb right now, but it ain’t over. Get it done, Bum!

  30. Bozo said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:15 pm

    Shut em down and shut em up.

  31. Macdog said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    Cespedes swings at 2-0, thank you very much.

  32. wilcojoe said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    Can’t wait to hear the radio call of the blast.

  33. chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:17 pm

  35. alleykat69 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    Fucking Conor Gilaspie will go down in Giants laurels up there with Travis and Renteria! What a unforgettable moment!!!!

    • Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:18 pm

      Abso-fucking-lutely!

  36. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:18 pm

    On the Giants’ main MLB page, Chris Haft posted a game-time story about Gillaspie making “great strides” filling in at 3rd. Nice call.

    • chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:20 pm

      Sweet…gotta read that one…

  37. Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:18 pm

    Before last night’s game, the road team was 6-2 in wild card games. If the G’s hang on, it’ll be 7-3 and 2-0 for the Giants!

  38. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:19 pm

    Pitching, defense, and the 3-run homerun. I loved Earl Weaver…

  39. Macdog said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    Nice 119-pitch shutout.

  40. Bozo said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    DJLoo is my idol.

  54. Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:24 pm

  55. willedav said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:24 pm

    Wow what does that make his ERA now?

  56. Irish Kevin said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:24 pm

    I wore my 2014 WS Bum jersey all day!!

  57. alleykat69 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    Think Conor gets a game baseball along with Bum???

  58. chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    I LOVE the hug between Bum and Posey after the final out…just so understated…mad respect by both…

    FUCKING A! WHOOP!

    • gianthead said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:27 pm

      And the tears in Gillaspie’s eyes…

  59. gianthead said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    I’m not calling a win over the Cubs but we are going to win one of the first two and think we steal Game 1 with Cueto!!!

  60. unca_chuck said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    The announcers were as quiet as the crowd. Yeah baby!!!!!

    The cubbies just felt a little tightening of their collective shpincters.

    I like our chances now.

  61. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    “There’s a hush…… all over the world… tonight”… that low exhaling sound coming out of the mouths of Cubs, Nats, and Dodgers, saying quietly “oh fuck…. here they come”….

  62. snarkk said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:27 pm

    Bum has gigantic balls…

    • gianthead said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:28 pm

      Globe sized

    • gianthead said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:32 pm

      How can one list the top 10 Giants moments in just the last 7 years but this is right up there…4×7 baby!!! Rally Stix! Death by Draculoo!!!

    • Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:36 pm

      Yah, a couple of big ol’ hairy southern crab apples.

  63. alleykat69 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:27 pm

    Thought Bum was gonna deck Buster Olney, for his stupid questions..

    • wilcojoe said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:31 pm

      “Why you gotta ask me all these hard questions.” That was great!

      • alleykat69 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:36 pm

        Yeah right WJ,
        That was great!!

      • Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:37 pm

        What he wanted to say was, “Why you gotta ask me all these stupid questions.”

  64. chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    HERE WE COME!

    Just Win…

  65. Irish Kevin said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    It’s just amazing what this team has gifted us since 2010.

  67. blade3colorado said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    Frickin’ weird going through all 250 channels I have in my Vietnamese apartment and no baseball. Catch ESPN Gamecast and it is almost like being there (coupled with chatting with Paul on Messenger). Just watching dots. HAHAHA. The “G” bomb was unfuckingbeiievable. Wow!

    • alleykat69 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      Hate to say it Blade but the Mets won!!
      Oh in Vietnam only!!!!

  68. chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    “It’s a different time of year, and anything can happen in October.” Madison Bumgarner…

  69. snarkk said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    Second half? What second half?…

    • chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:33 pm

      I never gave up and said continuously, get in, and anything can happen…

  70. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    I love it. All thru the game, the main MLB page kept showing Thor, and no-no thru 6, etc. Finally they had to change it to…. MadBum, game over. Unfuckingbelievable. Here we come.

  71. gianthead said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    How can one list the top 10 Giants moments in just the last 7 years but this is right up thereโ€ฆ4ร—7 baby!!! Rally Stix! Death by Draculoo!!!

  72. alleykat69 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:34 pm

    That was a great Nuschler Will Clark gameface from Conor after that bomb,damm decent emotion came out on that historic HR, and from a guy who wouldn’t even have started if Nunez was healthy! It was meant to be!!

    • chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:36 pm

      EYB at its finest, Kat!

      • alleykat69 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:43 pm

        Yeah no shit Chi.. EYB
        God I want to rip the Cubs a new one to keep their 110 years + of frustration to continue and yes everyone will be on their bandwagon!!
        I say we recruit Steve Bartman and put him in a Giants uni just to fuck with them more!!!

  73. Lurker John said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:35 pm

    Regardless of what happens over the next few weeks, the past 6 years have been as good as it gets as a baseball fan. I’d be hard-pressed to find a fan of any other franchise who’s had a better run, even fans of the Yankees. All the drama, the success, the toughness, the never-say-die fortitude.

    A week ago the Rockies won and it wasn’t looking too good. Then this.

  74. chipower9 said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:35 pm

    Enough of that ESPN bullshit…I had to flip to CSNBA…Flan and Richie…

  75. eddacker said, on October 5, 2016 at 8:37 pm

    djloo you beautiful motherfucker I am going to kiss you.

    Did we just put doubt and worry in some teams minds?
