Bee Wheezy

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 9, 2017

Apparently, Brian Wilson hasn’t spoken to a single ex-teammate in the last year and nobody knew he was hatching this knuckleball plan. I think it’s awesome.  I’ve gotten past the ridiculous tantrum he threw in front of Baer and remember nothing but the best of things about him. Him standing on the hill and pointing to the sky. A fresh faced Buster racing on his horse to embrace him. Good times.

Now he wants to come back “tossing waffles” (his words). How great would it be if this actually worked? It took about 2 of his epic one liners in Brown’s column  at Yahoo before I was hooked on him again. Whoever he plays for, I would watch and root……

    Krukow just said on Murph and Mac he’ll broadcast 120 games, Javier Lopez and Jeremy Affeldt will do the rest @KNBR #sfgiants

      Maybe Kruk is grooming his replacement. I’ve heard that he’s been considering retirement due to his health issues.

      • alleykat69 said, on February 9, 2017 at 9:21 am

        Yeah I’m thinking Kruk&Kuip might both ride out in the sunset 🌅 together and hang em up!
        They could like you say be “Grooming” his replacement/s and getting us all prepared for “The Javy&Jeremy Show” which I feel could be good as their both sharp&funny and Kruk&Kuip are getting” stale like a saltine cracker”

    I’m on opposite side of the fence here; I could not care less about what he does. What happened with him and Baer is NOT to be forgotten or forgiven. The Giants paid this guy, he did his job and then he couldn’t. He could have handled the ring deal like an adult but chose to make a scene and act all bad ass with an old guy in a suit. Classless and stupid.

    It’s also hard to forget 2011—it took almost the whole season (of suckitude) for him to admit he had never been right physically after 2010 and needed surgery. So Giants wound up paying him another year just to be weird in the dugout while they won without him.

  3. blade3colorado said, on February 9, 2017 at 8:57 am

    He’s a good Giant in my book. Sheesh, his “Schmidt number” for the Bums was epic for us and all is forgiven (Baer, etc.) for that reason alone. However, there is a universal law – NEVER GO BACK and I think if this rule is broken by the Giants with Wilson, the bad Karma (and results) with the Dodgers, would visit our team. In short, a big no on Wilson even sniffing a Giants uniform again.

  4. alleykat69 said, on February 9, 2017 at 9:03 am

    Yeah I’m with Willied,
    Not a fan of what Wilson did slinging shit all over the organization’s face after they carried his ass thru hard times he created himself..
    Heard only 2 teams might throw him a bone 🍖 for a look,that sounds about right, he’s worn out his welcome,and now his new gimmick a knuckleball?Just looking for a new way to create attention for himself which will fail..

      “Fear the Awful Waffle”
      😆 Lol Bozo!
      Really Brian Wilson is just waffling over his options and figures his best one will be as the late shift manager at the “24 hour Waffle House”

    I think by the time the 10 year anniversary of the ’10 team comes in ’20, a lot of fans will be in a forgive and forget mode, and so will the players. A lot of players don’t end their careers very well. It’s a tough thing. Their skills are declining, they can see the end of their career looming, and the club is breaking off the connection. It can get ugly. But usually time heals those wounds.
    The movie “Babe” has been playing on the MLB Network; not a great film, but has some strong moments. The depiction of the end of his career, as the Yankees cast him away, not giving him a chance to manage the team is a poignant moment. His wife slapping the owner’s face, and telling him: “Shame on you!”

    The whole B-Weezy thing is water under the bridge for me, but I always try to be one who does not hold grudges. With that said, not sure I am down with him in a Giants uniform, again. I more or less agree with Blade’s take on the situation.

    Instant Karma’s gonna get you…

    Four daze until pitchers and catchers report…

    Five daze until the first workout.

    February 24 – Giants baseball is ON THE AIR…

    Scored my opening day tix last night. Sarge – my daughter and I will be in section 134. We will definitely meet-up for a cold one my friend. Any other Flappers going to opening day?

    • sfsarge said, on February 9, 2017 at 10:04 am

      Sweet!

    • Bozo said, on February 9, 2017 at 10:30 am

      I envy you Chi, I used to go to opening day every year. I even delayed my move back here until the day after Opening day in 08. 09 was going to be my first year missing it, I was freaking out, so I signed up for the MLB online thing. Grilled me up some Polishes had my Sierras iced up and watched it on my computer. Not the same but it sure made me happy. Went back for the opener in 2011 so I could see them raise the flag (speaking of BW). One of these days I’ll get back there again.

      • chipower9 said, on February 9, 2017 at 12:54 pm

        Damn – wish I would have known you were back for the 2011 opening day. I was there. Easily my favorite day of the year.

    Watching college b-ball last night, Stanford played really well vs. AZ and lost a close game. They still don’t shoot well from perimeter 4-17 from 3 but played tough D and made them strain in a tough venue.

    The Cal game at ASU was being done by Brad Daugherty (Carolina guy), a guy I really like, who loves Ivan Rabb and is sure he’s gonna be a good pro.
    Funny thing is the Devils are coached by Bobby Hurley, alum of Daugherty’s hated rival Duke. He admitted Hurley used to kill UNC (tho not while he was playing there) and you could tell not everything was in jest.

    That’s one thing about college ball I really enjoy—hated rivals going at it on the field, with winners being able to talk about it for another year after it’s over. Also tonite is Purdue (where friend of mine’s oldest boy goes) at Indiana. Conferences with healthy rivalries just make it more fun to watch imo and atmosphere in gym awesome.

  10. Bozo said, on February 9, 2017 at 10:16 am

    How about Petit signing a minor league contract with the Angels? I always liked that guy, seemed to have a calmness about him. I never really understood why the Giants didn’t seem to want to keep him. Was it a money issue?

    • Flavor said, on February 9, 2017 at 10:50 am

      I never got that AT ALL. Seemed pretty valuable to me and he never costed much of anything.

    • chipower9 said, on February 9, 2017 at 12:55 pm

      Agree…real head-shaker. Dude was pretty damned solid, and as you both pointed out, he didn’t cost much.

    Wow! Just saw Bob Costas on CNBC business channel and he looks like he aged a decade. I didn’t see one minute of the Olympics, so not certain if he looked the same. Anywho, he announced his retirement from Olympics announcement duties. Mike Cirico (sp?) taking over.

    • Flavor said, on February 9, 2017 at 10:50 am

      never liked Costas. He seemed way more concerned with saying something dramatic than just describing what he was seeing. Thinks he’s bigger than the game. I don’t like that.

      • blade3colorado said, on February 9, 2017 at 10:59 am

        On a scale of 1 to 10*, where Joe Buck is a mid-range 1, Costas is a 2.

        *Higher is better.

    Mike Krukow had originally only planned to call 100 games, but recently increased it to 120 games and he will only travel to division games.

    • willedav said, on February 9, 2017 at 11:45 am

      Could be first part of things to come. Boy wonder seems to have loftier goals than to be 4th wheel and does a lot of other sports broadcasts. Kuiper won’t feel the same without his buddy around on the road.
      With Kruk around less Miller’s role will change too. Interesting

  14. gianthead said, on February 9, 2017 at 11:10 am

    My kid texted me about the BWilson knuckle comeback and I love it! Give him a minor league deal just for the fun of it. What could it hurt. Bring him up in Sept and let him face a Kris Bryant fornone st bat in a crucial game. I still love the crazy bearded one. He gave it his all as a Giant…also like the concept of Affeldt and Javier doing commentary. Lopez is extremely well spoken and would be excellent commentating…Costas is great for the big Olympic type of events and hearing him do a baseball game on MLB channel every voice in a while is a good bring back some memory moments. JOE BUCK is still the worst and McCarver is right there in my book…

    • blade3colorado said, on February 9, 2017 at 12:30 pm

      Awesome post by Romo. Thank you for sharing Bozo. In my opinion, another great Giant and stand up guy. Read what he wrote, especially this part – “I will not do anything to show any of them up, as I respect and truly love everyone one of them for the way they accepted me and let me play on their team.”

      . . . I am going to believe him unequivocally. He was a Giant among Giants in my opinion. Loved his car commercials too (lulz).

      • willedav said, on February 9, 2017 at 12:47 pm

        The one I liked was where he was with the 2 CSN goofballs riding around and they steal his, “That’s what’s up” line for their own. After he reminds them of it twice as they ignore him, he just stares at them and goes, “Wow.”

    • chipower9 said, on February 9, 2017 at 1:14 pm

      Thanks for the share, Clown. Great comments by Romo. I know there were a few moments last year when he was laughing coming off the mound (in what should have been a non-laughing moment), but overall, I think he was a great Giant. I will miss him, that’s for sure. I will always remember him walking down the street during the 2012 World Series parade wearing his “I only look illegal” t-shirt. Loved the dude’s energy…

  15. unca_chuck said, on February 9, 2017 at 12:32 pm

    Why replace Romo with a Romo-esque Wilson?

    The fun factor may be well and good until balls are rocketing off the bricks . . .

    • gianthead said, on February 9, 2017 at 1:52 pm

      If he can effectively throw a floater, keep him down in the minors and then bring him late and surprise everyone during a Sept run….

  16. Flavor said, on February 9, 2017 at 1:42 pm

    “I will never do anything to show any of them up…” Ummm did he get all that out of his system already when he was caught laughing out loud off the mound at his manager last year? twice?

    • unca_chuck said, on February 9, 2017 at 2:03 pm

      A small part of me doesn’t blame him for what he did after watching Casilla crash and burn so many times.

  17. sfsarge said, on February 9, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    “Everyone has a plan until they get hit in the face”

    I will always be a Romo guy and forever grateful for what he did for the Giants. I’ll never forget that epic battle against Jay Bruce in the 2012 division series, which will always stand out in my mind as his most memorable. I think right now he has no plans to show up anyone. But, when the adrenaline is flowing, who knows what he’ll do. (Laughing back to the dugout) we’ll see what happens.

  18. zumiee said, on February 9, 2017 at 3:04 pm

    It’ll be interesting to see how well the Dodgers and their fans “get” Romo. We know he’s going to occasionally hang the frisbee, and it’s sometimes going to get hit 430 feet; but he’ll also be lights-out in stretches (if healthy.) Let’s see how they react to the 430-foot ball.

  19. alleykat69 said, on February 9, 2017 at 3:50 pm

    Yeah I’ll always be a Sergio Romo fan!
    Big time highlights packed in a frail frame always surprised me. His dramatic guessing game and also’s Miguel Cabrera was epic,figuring Romo’s going with the slider but nooooo,freezes his ass with the heater and his pumped up shake& bake into Posey’s arm will be legendary for years to come..,

  20. blade3colorado said, on February 9, 2017 at 4:25 pm

    Nice to see the moron and his minions suffer another setback at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. I guess this runs its course to the Supreme Court. Fortunately, there’s no chance Gorsuch (the imbecile’s pick) will be confirmed in time to take part in any consideration of the Muslim ban.

  21. djloo27 said, on February 9, 2017 at 6:37 pm

    I’ll always love any Giant that contributed to a title. Who can forget that breezy-wheezy 9th inning vs. Texas?
    I was braced for torture and horror…

  22. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 9, 2017 at 6:51 pm

    My “offseason” over here was kind of disjointed and I wasn’t always aware of deals, signings, trades, whatever, to get the team ready for the 2017 season. Please remind me again of any meaningful signings beyond Melancon… Did the front office really only make one significant move this offseason?

    • djloo27 said, on February 9, 2017 at 7:00 pm

      Some backup catcher who I can’t think of…

    • djloo27 said, on February 9, 2017 at 7:02 pm

      When are we meeting up at Tracks?

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 9, 2017 at 8:14 pm

        Yeah, that would be fun, Loo. If you remember, I went there on your suggestion when I went into the city to see Clapton at the Garden the day after we buried my Dad a couple years ago. Good food and drink. Next time I’m back east, we should do it. That’ll likely be July…..

      • Flavor said, on February 9, 2017 at 8:14 pm

        Don’t get caught napping on No Dozing this Sat. I already had Irish war Cry serve notice. No Dozing would give me two very nice derby bullets. I have them both at 150-1 and I won’t tell you for how much or you might think I have a gambling problem. Oh my.

      • djloo27 said, on February 10, 2017 at 2:59 am
