We Score We Win Time

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 10, 2016

Slam dunk. Lights out. Win day. I’m not worried about Mad Bum but I am wondering about the rest of the team. I’m not doubting their collective effort but I do wonder how badly they really want it. Many of those guys have rings already and the dude who doesn’t (Span) might not have enough magic to join that party. There was no clearer sign of this being a no-magic season than the ball that Pence dropped in Game 2. In 2014 he was “Pence on the Fence.” Last game he was “Hunter the Punter.” Or something else that rhymes with his name. That was all I could come up with pre-coffee.

Either way, we have an elimination game pending and that’s when it’s usually duck and cover time for our opponent. I have no idea why that is but apparently we have the Cubs right where we want them.

    I think they were trying to figure out how to give that to the Cubs but knew all hell would break loose..

    Whew, nice job by Blach. How many pitchers left? I’d keep Blach in there for a few innings if necessary — Bochy said this is the exact situation why he’s on the roster…

    • alleykat69 said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:40 pm

      And what was he logic in leaving Casilla on it?

  3. Bozo said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    Whew. Somebody didn’t pay the last standing replay guy his monies.

  4. djloo27 said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    How does Blach do it? Doesn’t appear to have anything special…

  16. willedav said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:44 pm

  17. eddacker said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:44 pm

  18. gianthead said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:44 pm

    Holy moly…..that pitcher had to have been done and me love Joe Panik a long time…

  19. eddacker said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:45 pm

  21. snarkk said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:46 pm

    That’s 10 straight wins in elimination playoff games for the Giants.
    This team is just killin’ me, but it’s still alive !…

  22. zumiee said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:46 pm

    Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. eddacker said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:47 pm

    Jon Miller underestimates Giants fans by saying “a game where large parts of the country did not see it.”
    HA! FU in the house.

        Stix is definitely nodding!

  24. gianthead said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:47 pm

    If we can get some runs of Lackey early they are going to have some bullpen issues…

  25. Bozo said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:48 pm

    OK, time to finish this cocktail and hit the sack, gotta be up in a few hours.

  26. Bozo said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:48 pm

    Oh yeah, goat, goat, goat, goat…

  27. snarkk said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:48 pm

    OK, Cubbies maybe are startin’ to think a little bit about this series…

  28. eddacker said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:49 pm

    Nobody panics – it’s a Blach party.

  29. Bozo said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:53 pm

    Does Pete Rose even know where he is?

    • eddacker said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:05 am

      If Fox had any credibility surely Arod and Pete have destroyed what little there was.

  30. gianthead said, on October 10, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    You guys on the west coast…must show up with a goat tomorrow…that is your duty…where is Sarge??? He is the man for the job!!!

  32. alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:00 am

    Maddon screwed up big time sending in Chapman to get 6 outs in something he’s not use too! After that Bochy really had the numbers with extra players especially pitchers , where he was forced to throw Montgomery way to long even though he was good he was laboring and threw a ton of pitches ( over 50?) their pen to a major hit tonight and could cost them tomorrow..

    • gianthead said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:02 am

      And taking Heyward out may have cost them the game even though the other dude made an amazing play on Posey…

  33. gianthead said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:00 am

    How deflated was Schmoltz and Vespurgeonmyself??? One point in the extra innings, Vespurgeonmyself said the majority of Giants fans were still there…there was basically not an e.pty seat in the house. F You Fox Sports..

  34. snarkk said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:01 am

    Blach has some big cojones for a kid just up a month. Mark that kid down for a starting rotation spot next Spring…

    • gianthead said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:05 am

      No doubt..Matty Cain enjoy an early retirement….

  35. gianthead said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:04 am

    Im never going to sleep.

    • djloo27 said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:05 am

      I’m going for a walk…

  36. Macdog said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:04 am

    A little note: Chapman threw a scoreless inning for Reds in 2012 Game 3.

    • djloo27 said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:08 am

      Don’t we still owe that fuckin’ Lackey from 2002?

      • Macdog said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:11 am

        Probably. Didn’t they go against Lackey in 2014 playoffs?

    • zumiee said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:15 am

      That’s a fun fact!

      • zumiee said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:16 am

        The 2012 thing.

  37. mrsprtdude said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:13 am

    That was just EPIC! A great game between the 2 best teams left. The 6 out save wasn’t the issue, it was letting Gmen start a rally and then bringing him in. The fact that we held on to win after such a deflating 9th is just terrific. Hats off to the bullpen for holding them for the rest of the game!!!
    And yes we owe Lackey. hate that guy…

  38. zumiee said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:26 am

    Terry Francona getting the last laugh in regards to the Red Sox.

  39. zumiee said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:28 am

    The Giants and Dodgers are both 1-2, and playing at home tomorrow.

    • zumiee said, on October 11, 2016 at 12:54 am

      The Dodgers play first, and could be eliminated before the Giants game.

      • blade3colorado said, on October 11, 2016 at 4:48 am

        That would be sweet.

  40. djloo27 said, on October 11, 2016 at 4:42 am

    Lackey was the starter and winner of WS Game 7 vs. the Giants in 2002…

  41. blade3colorado said, on October 11, 2016 at 5:18 am

    Observations . . . I thought the game was going to be won by the Cubs, so capitulated to my girlfriend and her friend, who wanted to take me to lunch. Consequently, I had Sushi for lunch with them (and they both were fascinated by me following the GameCast dots on my Iphone). Paul was at school and text me this:

    “Ah, ok.. yeah, stuck at work, procrastinating getting stuff done by watching the dots…”

    Flav, did you go to bed early?
