Back to 2014

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 18, 2017

Back to KC. Remember that night? Bumgarner. That crazy play with Blanco and Perez both fumbling Gordon’s hit. Panda shaking that big ass all over their foul ground….

Sometimes it feels like the magic ended that night. Like the baseball gods finally hit the stop button on that 5 year bask.

Cain going tonight. Is that for real? He’s listed as the SP so I have to assume he pitching. Yikes. We go from Bum’s herculean effort, a performance we will NEVER see again in baseball, to…..this?

Oh well. Gotta start somewhere. Two games in KC, then on to Nepal, then 4 against the Dodgers. At least we get them at home. The problem with that is that AT&T hasn’t felt like an advantage in years……

But that’s a lot of negativity that we don’t need right now. Instead, I turn back to 2014 and the the video I took alone in the dark in my car. Remember this moment?

    Holy fuck!!!!!!! That’s a strike? Jesus. Neck high is now a strike. Come on Fundley.

    That umpire should be fired. He is incompetent.

  3. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:33 pm

    Way to go, Joe!!!!

    Hell yeah, Chuck — there’s the rally !
    Panik looks like he’s coming back to form this season…

  5. willedav said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:33 pm

    Panik hits one where even Cain can’t catch it.

  6. alleykat69 said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:34 pm

    That’s my boy Panik!!!

  7. Bozo said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:34 pm

    That’ll work.

  8. alleykat69 said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:37 pm

    Man, we have the holy triumvirate of shit outfielders.

    • Flavor said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:39 pm

      Ha, yes throw in Gorks and you have the 3 worst outfielders in the NL and they’re all on one team. Unreal.

  10. willedav said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:42 pm

    someone has to tell Affeldt viewers don’t need a clinic on every pitch thrown. wow couple innings and I’m already tired of this guy.

  11. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:42 pm

    Huh. A Rusty Kuntz sighting

  12. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:44 pm

    Gift K there

  13. zumiee said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    Arenado has 2 HRs vs. the Dodgers tonight.

  14. willedav said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    Jeezus Affledt. I think I’d rather listen to Amy.

    • zumiee said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:48 pm

      Wow! 🙂

  15. Lurker John said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:49 pm

    Yeah, the dude talks way too much.

    • chipower9 said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:59 pm

      Agree. And he was saying some of the high strikes were balls. Bullshit, if the umps call the zone the way it is written in the rule book. Affeldt will get old quick….just STFU, Jeremy.

  16. Macdog said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:53 pm

    Yay!

  17. willedav said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:54 pm

    Yeah! Never tire of Giants beating Royals.
    They get Bum tmw awesome.

  18. Bozo said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:55 pm

    Hey, we won a one run game.

  19. Lurker John said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:55 pm

    Great win, but Melancon has to be sharp. His work has been sporadic, so maybe what Affeldt says is true, the more work he gets the better he’ll get. Anyway, GOOD WIN!

    • Lurker John said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:56 pm

      That was supposed to be, yet to be sharp.

  20. Lurker John said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:56 pm

    Yeah, they get Bum tomorrow. lol

    • zumiee said, on April 18, 2017 at 9:01 pm

      KC is still having nightmares about him.

  21. alleykat69 said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:56 pm

    Whew 26 pitches but got the save!
    Take it.Cain solid start, pen did their job tonight, and Affedlt drove me nuts 🥜 check!!

    • zumiee said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:57 pm

  22. chipower9 said, on April 18, 2017 at 8:58 pm

    Okay…I’m delayed a couple minutes…so your getting a delayed “BALLGAME!” Fuck, it sure wasn’t easy for Melancon. But a W is a W…especially on the road.

  23. willedav said, on April 18, 2017 at 9:07 pm

    went to check in on Sharks and saw they are up 6-0 after 2. Yaha!
    Oh Loo’s hometown boys from NYC won over “LeFrogs” tonite Flav. Series tied 2-2.

  24. Irish Kevin said, on April 18, 2017 at 9:28 pm

    The Giants at their best, Cain was outstanding, as usual for Cain no run support! So now they are 1 for 5 in 1 run games. Does any of this sound familiar when Cain pitches.

  25. xoot said, on April 18, 2017 at 9:29 pm

    Whew! Great start to the second half of April. Both pens got stretched. Go get em madbum

  26. snarkk said, on April 18, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    Nice win, tonight, invoking memories. More tomorrow with Bum. He should walk into the game out of the CF gates bullpen like last time.
    Looks like scoring for SF will again be like pulling teeth.
    But dang, this outfield sucks. Merrero at a pitcheresque .133, Span leading off at 0 for 5 tonight, and a season’s strident .209 BA.
    They’ve got to get help out there…

  27. snarkk said, on April 18, 2017 at 9:48 pm

    Anybody notice this from Schulman’s twitter? WTF?
    “Nuñez is not running hard on some groundballs. If this is caution due to an injury we don’t know about, fine. If not … #SFGiants”…

  28. snarkk said, on April 18, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    Arroyo now hitting .442; 1 for 4 tonight with oppo dinger.
    Merrifield called up by Royals today, hit dinger tonight — he was hitting over .400 at AAA…

  29. zumiee said, on April 18, 2017 at 10:30 pm

    It got dicey in the bottom of the ninth, but the Rockies hold on. Rockies 4, Dodgers 3.
