THE San Francisco Giants Blog

27 Years Later…..

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 7, 2016

This series vs the Cubs is bringing back a lot of memories for me. 1989. Just starting out Lewis and Clark College. I remember a surprising number of Giants fans attending that tiny school in Portland.

I looked over the ’89 roster just for some better recall. Some of these guys weren’t on the post season roster:

Best player name: Ernie Camacho

Best horse racing name: Kelly Downs

Best Ex Cardinal: Ken Oberkfell

Best clutch hitter I remember with no stats whatsoever to back it up: (tie) Greg Litton and Ernie Riles

wait…2 guys named *Ernie*? Whoa…..

Guy I Thought was too old to be on that team: Chris Speier

That team also had Yan Gomes future father-in-law on it….

Draveckey, Bedrosian, Reuschel….

The Thrill.

Greenwald.

In hindsight, the clear problem with that team not winning the World Series was chronological. 1989. Odd year. They never stood a chance.

    We Score We Win…

    They put so much pressure on their SPs to be perfect.
    No margin for error…

  4. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:09 pm

    They need to start taking some pitches…hitters are very very tight…

    • gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:13 pm

      Tight like Trump’s brain…this is going to be the end of him thankfully. I think someone had been holding onto this info for a while and waited until the perfect time for release Two days before the next debate and after the fears for the Hurricane have subsided is perfect timing politically…

  5. djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    Amazing!

  6. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    Joe Panik who?

  7. snarkk said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:14 pm

    Tomlinson or 000?
    No contest. I don’t understand why Tomlinson was sweating in Sac all summer…

    • chipower9 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:18 pm

      No shit…it was a regularly asked question…

      000 must have chicken pictures on Sabes or Evans…

  8. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:14 pm

    Has Cueto ever looked better???

  9. Bozo said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    A few runs here would make me very happy…

  10. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    Damn. Who is going to blink first??

  11. snarkk said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    This one has to be decided by a homer?
    Hard to put 3 hits together…

    • chipower9 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:19 pm

      Or could be a totally different game if the bullpens get involved…

      • snarkk said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:21 pm

        Most of Giants Pen hasn’t thrown much the last week. Guys are going to be rusty…

  12. Bozo said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:20 pm

    Is Bartman in the stands?

  13. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    Bochy better not bring Strickland into this frickin game…

  14. Irish Kevin said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    I will turn this off if Botch puts Strickland in. It will be such a waste of a great game by Cueto!!

  15. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    I think the Giants’ starting pitchers should all be on a pitch count. Minimum 130 pitches. No ‘pen.

  16. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    Looks like we are getting Lester out of the game…big mistake potentially from Maddon..

    • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:27 pm

      Only 86 pitches…

  17. Macdog said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    Ah fuckl.

  18. Bozo said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    Fuck

  19. chipower9 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    FUCK!

  20. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    Oops….

  21. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    Shit sandwich…

  22. snarkk said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    Yep, there’s the HR…

  23. snarkk said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    Giants just need to homer back in the 9th. Make Chapman throw strikes…

  24. chipower9 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    You know our boys want to pick-up Cueto…can they do it…

  25. Flavor said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:34 pm

    you can only cheat losing for so long when you just string zeroooooooos together like this

  26. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:35 pm

    We need Noonan…

  27. Bozo said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:36 pm

    Well Gorkys has never hit against Chapman and Span is 0-6 against him, what do you do?

    • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      Look away…

  28. Macdog said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:37 pm

    These in-game ads are really fucking annoying.

  29. blade3colorado said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    Agree with Loo’s earlier post about Panic. Get rid of him, while he is still worth more than a bag of balls.

    OK, so they scored. That’s out of the way – now score two and send these MOFOs a message. Still playing with house money. All is good.

    • chipower9 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:44 pm

      Good to see ya Blade!

      • blade3colorado said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:45 pm

        Yeah, Fox Asia is showing the game at 8am in the morning. 🙂

  30. Macdog said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:39 pm

    Bullshit call.

  31. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:39 pm

    They’re jacking us again…

  32. wilcojoe said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:39 pm

    He didn’t go around. What a bullshit call!

  33. Bozo said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:43 pm

    Posey.

  34. Macdog said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:43 pm

    Ahhhh, so close!

  35. chipower9 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:43 pm

    Fuck! Thought Buster tied it!

  36. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:44 pm

    Damn damn damn…that is a run if they did not rob Gorkys…

  37. Bozo said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:44 pm

    Two out hitter Hunter.

  38. blade3colorado said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:44 pm

    Cubs fans sweating this out. Hilarious. Loved that fan shot.

  39. wilcojoe said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:46 pm

    Fuck

  40. chipower9 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:47 pm

    Bullshit! Gorkies was robbed! Get ‘me tomorrow!

  41. blade3colorado said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:47 pm

    Get ’em next game.

  42. Macdog said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:47 pm

    Go get ’em tomorrow, just need a split.

  43. Bozo said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:48 pm

    EYB

  44. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:50 pm

    First pitch to Pence was not a strike either…everything is going to be against us this series. They need to put runs together early. We cost ourselves early tonight

  45. gianthead said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:51 pm

    We are going to have to overcome the Bill Murray karma…

  46. djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:52 pm

    Pete Rose looks like a ventriloquist’s dummy…

    • Macdog said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:54 pm

      Charlie McHustle?

      • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:54 pm

        Funny!!!

      • snarkk said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:57 pm

        Owen Bookeez?…

    • Lurker John said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:40 pm

      LOL

  47. snarkk said, on October 7, 2016 at 8:55 pm

    I was afraid of the one swing deciding it. Giants simply find it near impossible to manufacture a run against a good starter. They had guys on 2nd and 3rd with two down, and couldn’t get anybody in. That was it right there…

  48. djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    Pete Rose

  49. djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:14 pm

    Nunie looked like he can barely walk…

    • Flavor said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:24 pm

      and that’s after what? 10 days of rest?

      • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:36 pm

        They’ve probably been treating the wrong leg…

  50. djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:17 pm

    I feel like Pence rarely gets a big hit in the late innings. I may be totally wrong about that.
    Just seems that way to me lately…

  51. Flavor said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    as I said earlier tonight….
    Andrew Baggarly ‏@extrabaggs 1m1 minute ago
    Posey did not lose track of the outs. Said he wanted to be sure Zobrist didn’t collect the short hop, because he wouldn’t have tried for 3rd

  52. djloo27 said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:34 pm

    With a ridiculously rested bullpen, an off day Sunday and Bum on Monday, Smdj will be on the shortest leash in history tomorrow…

  53. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:46 pm

    I thought Moore would go in game 2, are there splits indicating that Smarge would be better at Wrigley and Moore better at China Basin?

  54. sandog said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    We had a high school football game tonight, so I missed the game. Sounds like a great one, but a tough loss. My brother is in New York visiting my niece. They watched the game at a packed Finnerty’s.
    I actually have some confidence in Smarge tomorrow.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:49 pm

      Agree, and I have confidence in all 4 starters. It’s the bats that will need to get it done…. starting tomorrow…

  55. snarkk said, on October 7, 2016 at 9:50 pm

    Smardzi has been really good lately. But, his propensity to give up HRs, and some ex-Cub thoughts probably going on in his head, I’m apprehensive…
