The Worst Team in Baseball

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 3, 2017

You know, the Giants really aren’t so bad if you don’t watch them. Yeah, I discovered this last night while not watching them. The Warriors were in cruise control and it was nice to watch a pro team I like perform professionally.

My current problem is the box score. I was checking the box score fairly regularly and that wasn’t nice or fun. So I might have to cut that out. The Cardinals game is probably gonna get rained out today. We need more games like that on our schedule.

The calendar has barely crept into May and I’m already sick of this team. The idea of trading Belt was floated at the end of the last thread. Yes please! I doubt he’d bring much but I am ready to blow this half-assed play up. Preferably starting with the front office. Three championships doesn’t give you free reign to lackadaisically smoke the most copious amounts of pole the rest of your careers.

Anyway, try to muster up an argument that this isn’t the worst team in baseball. You can’t. With this payroll that’s a fucking embarrassment.

    Nevin had been better than Roberto.

    Chuck, it figures they would go after their favorite whipping boy, Belt.

  3. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:36 pm

    Fuck…I need a stiff drink!

    • blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:39 pm

      Fuck . . . I need to start drinking.

      • snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:44 pm

        Giants aren’t worth that, blade.
        I’ll drink for you…

      • blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:47 pm

        🙂

    Color me shocked the Doghairs didn’t put it away in that inning.
    Nonetheless, Giants flat smoke pole.
    They can’t hit. Pen is a gas can mostly.
    And, when they do finally do a conga, the coach won’t take a chance at sending with one down. Belt is pretty fast. If Posey was pissed at Nevin, we should be.
    Belt walks to open the inning and pressure the pitcher; so no doubt it’s his fault Nevin didn’t send him.
    Bochy’s MO is that Giants rarely try to force the defense to make a play — I don’t get that for a team that can’t score for shit…

  5. blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:38 pm

    I don’t buy what K and K are selling. What do they mean he didn’t get a good jump? I assume the runner (Belt) is watching his 3rd base coach, right? This is on Nevin.

  6. James said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:40 pm

    Kruk: holding the runner was “predicated on the jump Belt got.” Except the replay showed Belt walking into a huge lead off second and breaking on contact. It would not have been close.

  7. alleykat69 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:40 pm

    Anytime.Anywhere,The K&K show will roast Belt..
    Did they bother to get on Nevin? Hell No!

    • snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:42 pm

      I think Belt once ate Kuip’s post game Brat or something, and Kuip’s been pissed at him since…

  8. sandog said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:40 pm

    I’m listening to KNBR online and Flemming immediately expressed surprise Nevin didn’t send him and has commented several times that Nevin will be scrutinized for that decision. Yet another example why I think Flemm is WAY better than Kuip and is my favorite Giant announcer. By far the most critical of our announcers—which I appreciate.

    Agree that Nevin has been an upgrade and I did not see the play, but man you gotta send him right there.

    • chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:44 pm

      I like Fleming a lot, too. Have ever since he broke in the the Gigantes…

  9. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:41 pm

    The Kelbinator. Can someone hit an XBH?

  10. alleykat69 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:42 pm

    The rag throw was up the 1st base line and they deflected that as well.,Fuck Boog Powell could of scored!!!

    • unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:43 pm

      It wouldn’t have been cut off so it may have been a close play but they have to send him there. It wasn’t a bad throw. It was tailing toward the catcher. But again they have to send him.

    • blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:45 pm

      Shit AK, our fattest, slowest Flapper with a skink on could have scored.

  11. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:43 pm

    Specs had better stay.

    • snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:45 pm

      He’s a damn good all around player, with good fundamentals, and a sense for the clutch. And, he’s fast as hell. But, he’s got options, so he needs to go down I suppose. You know, inventory…

  12. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:43 pm

    The Giants have to cash in one of these times, dammit!

  13. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:46 pm

    Oh good. We aren’t pinch hitting for Gorkys. Agent .007.

  14. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:47 pm

    Gorkster!

  15. sandog said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    Gorkys Comes Alive !

  16. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    OMFG!!!! The double I was looking for!

  17. snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    Gorkys with an RBI?
    Just bought himself another month up with the big club…

    • chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:49 pm

      Oh fuck Tom, that gets him at least a couple of months..

      • snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:51 pm

        😉

  18. Macdog said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    How ’bout that!

  19. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    I was just going to reply to Unca’s .007 comment that he blows like Agent 99 (well, per Maxwell Smart).

  20. blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    I guess that means he’s leadoff till the all star break.

  22. snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:49 pm

    If the shift is on, this is when Belt should push it down the line…

    • snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:50 pm

      Or, get a damn hit for an RBI !
      But, goddammit. If Belt would fix his grip, he’d have gotten a double instead of just a single…

  23. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:50 pm

    Yo Kuip – wtf ya have to say about Belt, now?

  24. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:50 pm

    WTF? Nevin is on glue.

  25. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    Holy fuck! What a catch!

    • Macdog said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:54 pm

      That was a helluva catch.

    • unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:57 pm

      That was a hell of a catch

  26. Macdog said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    Unca’s 9:49, yeah!

  27. blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    Gorky will have a plaque dedicated to him at the Phone Park . . . Well on his way to having a statue near Gaylord’s.

  28. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:52 pm

    So, does Bochy bring Melancon out of cold storage to pitch the bottom of the inning? Need to get him thawing out, now…

  29. alleykat69 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:53 pm

    Even on a RBI hit for insurance by Belt,
    Kruk says that s a pitch he needs to hit more consistently!!🔥🔥🔥

    • snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:55 pm

      RU serious Kat?
      That is unreal.
      Belt must have eaten more than just Kuip’s Brat…

  30. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:54 pm

    3 run lead yes. 4 run no.

  31. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:54 pm

    Oh for six for the kid.

    • snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:56 pm

      Give him “a day”.
      Gorkys has had “a month” since the opening series in Phoenix when he got 4 RBI in one game, to get his next 2. That rbi just then was #6…

      • chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:59 pm

        I have all kinds of patience for the kid, Snarkk. He’s going to be a solid ballplayer.

  32. willedav said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:55 pm

    TRADE BELT!
    Giants might never score, but…

  33. zumiee said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:56 pm

    Hey, a contribution from Gorkys. I must be hallucinating.

  34. blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 10:58 pm

    Maybe I shouldn’t say anything yet, but this feels like the other team’s bullpen taking it in the ass for once this season.

  35. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:00 pm

    Suck it Utley.

  36. snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:01 pm

    Crap. Utley is batting .104.
    That’s DFA territory when the other second baseman gets back from injury. Whatever his name is…

    • zumiee said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:02 pm

      Forsythe.

  37. alleykat69 said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:02 pm

    At least the Giants made one good move. They didn’t keep Jimmy Rollins thank god! But yet the Dogshit keep Utley around with his .110 avg and dropping..

  38. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:02 pm

    grumblegrumblegrumble

  39. blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:04 pm

    Hershisher spouting shit about the Dodgers putting a dagger to the Giants season if they come back here. Man, I dislike that asshole.

    • unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:05 pm

      He might be right.

      • blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:07 pm

        That’s why I dislike him. Ha.

  40. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:04 pm

    50,000? Looks more like 3,000 now.

  41. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:04 pm

    Fuck me sideways.

  42. snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:05 pm

    Giants apparently never can get a no-drama save…

  43. alleykat69 said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:05 pm

    Can we ever make it easy??!

  44. blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:06 pm

    Great, their best player Seager.

  45. snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:07 pm

    Don’t give in to Seager. You don’t let the oppo’s best player beat you…

  46. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:08 pm

    Fuck Yeah! Series win! Time for a celebratory burn! 🔥

    I need a drink…a double!

  47. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:08 pm

    Hoo haa hooo haa. Piece of cake. Jeebus.

  48. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    Torture, Part Deaux…

  49. Macdog said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    Beat L.A.! Series win! 2-1 in May! Here we go Giants!

  50. alleykat69 said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    Unbelievable but true, a series win!!

  51. blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    Whew!

  52. unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    2nd month of the season. 2nd series win.

  53. willedav said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:10 pm

    groundball to specs and game ova!
    I know where Giants are, but beating LA still means a lot.

    • zumiee said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:11 pm

  54. blade3colorado said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:10 pm

    G’night all . . . Well earned rest.

  55. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:11 pm

    Giant pitchers – 13 Ks, no BB. Diametric opposite from last night’s clusterfuck…it’s the Giant Way….

  56. snarkk said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:12 pm

    Miracle win.
    I thought they were toast after that Nevin-no-send-Belt deal.
    However they did it, a win over the Doghairs is a really good win.
    Belt 1-2 with an RBI, plus 4 walks. Not to mention great play along foul line in 8th to get Puig at 1st.
    OPS now .863.
    Slacker.
    Gnite Flappers…

  57. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:12 pm

    Sleep tight girls…sweet dreams…

  58. mrsprtdude said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:13 pm

    Glad to see Clint Zumiee! Cant believe Arroyo has same Rbi’s as Posey, and he had to get one tonight just to catch a guy here for a week. Regardless..a win vs Dodgers is a good win!

    • zumiee said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:21 pm

      Yes indeed!

  59. chipower9 said, on May 3, 2017 at 11:28 pm

    As a Giant fan there hasn’t been much to hang your hat on this year, but to beat your hated rivals, AND take the series, is FUCKING HUGE! Well, at least that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it…

    Fuck dem bums!
