No Reason

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 24, 2017

I can’t come up with a single reason to be optimistic about this upcoming home series vs the Dodgers except for the “no reason” angle. Before we went to KC I thought it was entirely possibly we go 1-8. Even after we squeaked out the first one in extras I thought it was still possible that 1-8 ignominiously unfolded.

But there is always “no reason” to pin your hopes to. Things happen for no reason all the time. It’s one of the main reasons that sports books stay in business. If everything worked out as it appeared on paper, they’d go broke.

So let’s here it for NO REASON! Come on baby! We believe in you!!!!!

    This was a great possible “feel good” game, and there haven’t been many of those. If the ‘pen blows this one…. sheesh…

    Arroyo flashing some leather. I like what I’m seeing….

    • snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:42 pm

      That play will give him some confidence…

  3. alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:42 pm

    Kid can flash some leather!

  4. chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:43 pm

    I love that Murph pulled out 22 for Arroyo…

  5. chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:43 pm

    Come on Law! Make me eat some crow!

  6. alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:43 pm

    Great minds think a like Chi!

  7. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    Whew.

  8. snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    Anybody have the feeling w/Law that the guy has really good stuff, but dicks around with it too much, as in tries to be too fine, and so gets in trouble?…

    • chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:45 pm

      Well, he did get the K, and held the damage to one run. Better than recent alternatives…

  9. chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    Fuck yes! Bang Bang!

  10. willedav said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:45 pm

    Posey bails him out.

  11. xoot said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:45 pm

    Arroyo looks really good in the field and at the plate–he definitely was not overmatched by the bums pitchers and he did not try to do too much with the bat. He’s taking sight. He needs to stick and to play.

    Meanwhile, the middle of the Giants bullpen continues to define mediocrity. Thank gawd for Buster.

    • chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:47 pm

      Agree. 3rd needs to be his until he shows consistently that he cannot handle it. He looks great. Sure, just one game, but I like how he has started.

  12. alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:46 pm

    Guns him out!!!
    Rally killer ends with a Poseynaitor throw!!
    Eat shit Dodgers!!!

  13. Macdog said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:47 pm

    Thank you dumbass baserunner with Seager batting.

  14. snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:47 pm

    I remember I saw Arroyo for two ABs at Scottsdale. Has a really quiet approach at the plate, sets up in a fairly classic way, and does not over swing. Really well balanced through the swing. Kind of approach that likely won’t go into extended slumps…

    • alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:54 pm

      So just the exact opposite of constipated stance Rowand then?

      • snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:57 pm

        Pretty much, Kat…

  15. zumiee said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:47 pm

    Who’da thunk Arroyo would be a defensive star tonight?

  16. snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:51 pm

    Nunie has to be stealing here…

    • snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:55 pm

      Hit and run there makes nonsense to me, with a disciplined hitter Posey up. Why force him swing at a pitch that isn’t a good pitch to hit — and Romo throwing slow pitches?…

      • alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:57 pm

        Guess the steal attempt made no sense either now..

      • snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:59 pm

        That whole sequence with Nunie was messed up…

  17. chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 9:57 pm

    Nice AB by Crawford.

  18. Macdog said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:01 pm

    Damn, Romo always was tough on rookies.

  19. Macdog said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:04 pm

    Here comes Melancon for his once a week appearance.

  20. alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:05 pm

    Arroyo got schooled by Romo end the end, but still made him throw a lot of frisbee’s before locking him up with a FB.Do like what Snarkk said, a very quiet body with good discipline. He’s gonna be a real keeper..

  21. pawliekokonuts said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:05 pm

    2 more outs to go. NEED this W.

  22. zumiee said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:09 pm

    Thanks, ump!

  23. alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:09 pm

    Nice ๐Ÿ‘ Take some pine meat ๐Ÿ–

  24. willedav said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:12 pm

    wow craw in behind him game over!

  25. Bozo said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:12 pm

    Fuck yeah…

  26. Macdog said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:13 pm

    Beat dumbass L.A.!

  27. chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:13 pm

    WHOOP! Much needed win!

    Welcome Christian Arroyo!

  28. zumiee said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:14 pm

    Never in doubt! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. xoot said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:14 pm

    “You are the best motherfucking catcher in baseball.” I think that’s what Melancon said to Posey.

  30. snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:15 pm

    I wonder if they called that play with a sign before the pitch? Probably. Buster’s arm gets it done the 8th and 9th. Nice game. Not a lot of production — but I think the new blood added energy tonight…

  31. alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:15 pm

    Oh hell yes!!
    What a dumbshit Turner is!!
    Never I mean never get thrown out as the tying run on second base!! Posey heads up with another gun throw!! Keep kicking the Dodgers butt boys!!

    • zumiee said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:17 pm
      • zumiee said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:18 pm

        The game was a laugher! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Flavor said, on April 25, 2017 at 4:24 am

        this is fantastic, by the way.

  32. Bozo said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:17 pm

    Cain pitched a hell of a game, I hope he’s OK.

    • xoot said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:19 pm

      good point. He was just as good this game as his last. Very similar. Very good. I haven’t seen a description of the injury yet.

  33. willedav said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    SanDawg called this one end of last thread.
    Giants need to open next season vs. LA instead of all the so called chump teams in West.

    Warriors by 25, wasn’t that close. Up there tmw, don’t want to hear anything out of Portland crowd.

  34. alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Think I had more facial hair as a baby then Arroyo has now…

    • snarkk said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:20 pm

      Kat, were you using Barbasol at age 10 months?…

  35. chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:19 pm

    I had to go back and wach that final out, again. Thank you Mr. dipshit Turner. Fucking heads-up play by Posey. Bam!

    • zumiee said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:20 pm

      • pawliekokonuts said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:21 pm

        it’s been a while……

  36. pawliekokonuts said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    Great great great great great great great ending, #MVPosey.

  37. chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    G’night, girls. BEAT LA!

  38. chipower9 said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:22 pm

    Time to string together some wins at the expense of la bumbinos!

  39. pawliekokonuts said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    Cain’s right hamstring tightened…..x rays neg on foot

  40. unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:38 pm

    Cain continues his dominance. I thought he hurt himself on a swing not the ball that hit his foot.

    Law is aggravating as fuck. He’s diddling shit. He should be attacking. Arroyo didn’t hit anything hard but for a few fouls. Did get the runner over for the sac fly iirc.

    Romo got a nice ovation before the game started.

  41. unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2017 at 10:39 pm

    A lot of empty seats tonight.

  42. djloo27 said, on April 25, 2017 at 5:08 am

    It would be a huge mistake to rush Bumgarner back in what is clearly a hopelessly lost season…
