Walk Off

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 13, 2017

Buster Posey’s home run was the first in the 17th inning or later by a Giant since Jim Davenport hit one on May 13, 1966.

Of course that’s not true, we all remember Belt’s bomb against the Nats. I just thought this tweet from Baggarly read kinda cool.

As usual, props to anyone who made it till the end last night, especially the east coast squad. I’m now leaving for Sac, gotta be there by 7am.

    Wow! What a fucking poke! I bailed in the 13th…had to be up at 5 for a trip to Fairfield to compete with my dog. Damn!

    Go get ’em today!

    Flav – you catching a River Kitty game in Sactown while there?

    Enjoy the weekend girls!

    And any Right Coast Flappers who made it to the end…we’re not worthy! ⚾️

    g’morning, girls

    • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 7:57 am

      Pk, burning it at both ends. Chi– no river cats gm. I’m at the sacto convention center all weekend for volleyball. Apparently there is also some dumbass bike race in town fucking up my shit right now.

    • chipower9 said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:13 am

      Morning Mr. Kokonuts!

  3. Bozo said, on May 13, 2017 at 6:42 am

    I didn’t make it until the end, but good news to wake up to.

  4. willedav said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:00 am

    Bailed in 14th. Wasn’t easy but 9 shutout innings by pen. Posey caught 269 pitches and today is day game so lot of guys on both sides gotta be tanked.
    The guy I won’t mention as their leadoff went 0-7 and left 5 guys on base, No steals no runs scored.
    Btw, looking at Reds LU they have half a dozen guys with .848 OPS or better and .500 slugging. Guy at top is under .700 but obviously has a lot of help behind him. Votto is awesome and has lost a few HRs here already.

    Contrast that with Giants where Posey is only guy over .850—Belt is now batting .217 and Pence Craw Panik Nunez all under .700 OPS and kid is batting .236. Thursday game they had bunch of hits just not at right times to drive in run they needed, even vs. Bronson Arroyo.

    Life in sunny Campbell is good, shorts and sandals weather. Like Reds mgr said, after playing that long mood in Giants clubhouse is a lot different than theirs.

    • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:06 am

      5 left on base? Who cares, that’s not his job. As I said yesterday, he’s scored in 11 straight till last night. Find a Giant who’s within a country mile of that and get back to me

    • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:08 am

      Don’t piss Flavor off about Hamilton. You could end up with Baldy.

      I haven’t worn shorts since I was 12 and that includes dozens of trips to LV and several years of going back and forth to LA. Also never owned or wore sandals. I won’t get into the Brooklyn dumbo reasoning behind it…

      • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:10 am

        What do you go swimming in? Dungarees?

      • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:15 am

        I don’t swim.

      • willedav said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:17 am

        or sleeping with the fish I guess lol. I don’t do sandals either, ever. the way rest of league kicks his ass, he’d turn into Mark Portugal if giants signed him, Reds do have some other good players tho, good looking team.
        They are rated tops in league for overall D 2017 according to F/G and their IF is outstanding.
        OF D is very good too (and CF is excellent) and that Schleber guy in RF robbed Posey in
        extras deep RCF, and Posey was dropping f-bombs on way back to dugout.

      • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:23 am

        Strange to see them without Brandon Phillips. Seems like he’s been there since Tommy Helms left…

      • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:28 am

        But if you had to swim, if one of the ladies asked you to go with, would you wear cut off jeans like they did in the movie Breaking Away?

      • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:36 am

        Never saw the movie. Can’t commit to it…

      • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:38 am

        Too bad, great movie. I’ve got a Cutters tee shirt I love that movie so much

  5. Macdog said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:10 am

    Baggs did say regular season in a follow-up tweet. Funny how Kat mentioned Davenport in the Thursday thread, and now there’s this little bit of trivia. Also, Giants’ first and last ABs were home runs, imagine that.

  6. djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:32 am

    I wonder if the Giants can, would, or should do something to keep the seagulls away during games. I really do believe that Span might have missed that ball because of them.

    Why not just put up a big sign that says “SEAGULLS PROHIBITED DURING GAMES”
    Problem solved.

    • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:35 am

      Maybe in another city they could get away with fitting the seagulls with concrete shoes but not in SF.

      • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:41 am

        If this was happening at Yankee Stadium in the ’70’s they would probably allow fans to shoot at them with zip guns…

    • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:49 am

      Or maybe take the Roger Craig approach about using the ballpark to their advantage.
      Train a select few of the best birds to only fuck with the opposing team.
      I am being completely serious. I don’t think it’s far fetched at all.
      The team is in dire straits and needs to do something quick…

      • willedav said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:10 am

        weather in City is just so different, esp at night. south bay it’s 70s in daytime and UPS driver wears shorts year round, lot of school kids too. Votto has put I think 3 on the warning track to LF and of course that one Panik smashed off the wall Thursday would have been out in a lot of yards too.

        I just can’t believe ALL the Giants reg hitters except Posey (and his 8 ribbies or whatev) are hitting so poorly for either avg/ power or both. Always liked Gameface too and he’s been terrible at the plate like all the bench guys pressed into action. I’d get Mac Hwang and Slater up right now give team a fresher look.

  7. willedav said, on May 13, 2017 at 8:40 am

    Reds blew up their entire team not long after Giants playoff when they fell to bottom. Props to them it’s paid off, after dumping the SPs, losing Chapman, trading off Phillips and Frazier yada yada.

    I’d be remiss not to mention that after the blowup over Bassman Baldy accusing Flav of making up a tweet or some such, he was not banned here but left of his own accord. Only been fortunate enough to have met the Big Guy a couple times but he’s a very laid back and tolerant guy and obviously devoted single Dad as witness by this weekend and countless others. And of course responsible for keeping together Fantastic Flap.

    • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:02 am

      I’m a lot more laid back nowadays. 10-20 years ago, not so much. But I’m much closer to death now, what’s there to get upset about? As you said, Baldy is free to post here he just doesn’t.

    • alleykat69 said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:10 am

      Baldy bailed down to Arizona,Tuscon maybe?
      That scorpion 🦂 shit is true stuff.My sister&i went down to Arizona last year (Superstition Mt area) and when we got into the house my parents owned their was a scorpion waiting for us on the carpet( nearly freaked my sis out)
      Very common for those buggers to get in homes down in the desert 🌵

    • xoot said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:18 pm

      bass baldy was interesting. who else would quote that frog cock holster Jean Genet? maybe his wikipedia page has an update on his status. baldy’s page, I mean.

  8. chipower9 said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:23 am

    Yep. Seen lots of scorpions in my travels to Zona. Also, spent 3.5 months in Taif, Saudi Arabia (first gulf war). High desert. We had coffee cans filled with water under each leg of our cots to help keep those fuckers (scorpions) outta our racks.

    Speaking of Scorpioms…listened to a lot of them back late 70s and early 80s. Bad ass rock/metal band…

    • sfsarge said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:42 am

      We had our fair share of scorpions in Iraq. Putting two scorpions in a box and watching them fight to the death was pretty lame. All they did was look at each other.

      • chipower9 said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:22 am

        Cheap entertainment. 😉

  9. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:28 am

    Bisbee, AZ, I believe it was. Interesting little town, right there near the border. A motel campground of tricked out Airstreams. And yeah, scorpions. Was that the name of the local baseball team he talked about now and then? It had a strange animal desert name.

    • chipower9 said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:24 am

      One of the AZ Fall League teams is the Scottsdale Scorpions. I have a team hat…black with a red scorpion.

      I have seen stories on that park with the Airstreams…total coolness in the sweltering desert heat…

  10. dirtnrocksnomo said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:42 am

    Moore needs to step up today and go deep into the game. No wishy washy Zito nonsense.

    • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 10:14 am

      Great post

    • Lurker John said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:05 am

      I’d be happy with 7 solid, 6 even.

  11. alleykat69 said, on May 13, 2017 at 9:46 am

    Yeah it was Bisbee, Nice call P/A!
    So I looked it up neat little town by the border.
    And they have a minor league team called “Bisbee Killer Termites” Lol Shit I have to get one of those baseball caps!!”

  12. snarkk said, on May 13, 2017 at 10:23 am

    Lurie just had an interview of the Reds beat writer. The guy said the day they traded for Duvall, the Reds front office told him they were happy as hell, thought sure he had the goods to be a left fielder. And, he’s turned out to be pretty good defensively, getting better all the time. WTF? So the Reds management can see a LFer, when Giants have been looking for a power hitting LF since Bonds left? No wonder no home grown OFers in two decades…

  13. alleykat69 said, on May 13, 2017 at 10:57 am

    Instead the Giants sprung a Leake…

  14. Lurker John said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:04 am

    Hey, zum, Posey’s shot was estimated at 436 feet. Tape measure shot indeed.

    • chipower9 said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:25 am

      Longest shit I have seen to that part of the park…BOOM!

  15. Lurker John said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:07 am

    After last night’s marathon, they need to come up with a ‘Croix de AT&T’ pin for all the hearty souls that stayed the whole way.

    • xoot said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:21 pm

      we were talking about that at the park. instead of a croix, maybe a little something with wings.

  16. dirtnrocksnomo said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:17 am

    I don’t know what you all think of Lurie’ s show but I generally enjoy it despite the wing nuts that call in. He had a great segment with an author that recently wrote a book on Lefty Oduol and his impact on SF baseball. Good stuff. I’m glad the club won last night, great bullpen performance, but struggling to put away the Reds is indicative of everything wrong with the club.

  17. Lurker John said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:17 am

    Gotta see Breaking Away, loo, great movie and the sleeper hit of 1979. And I think you should get into why you don’t wear shorts. Pasty white chicken legs? Knobby knees? Let’s hear it.

  18. Lurker John said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:25 am

    As annoying as Evans’ words the other day were, I agree with one part, all the Giants’ ‘big guns’ are hitting way below their baseball cards and you have to figure that improves at some point. Even with last night’s heroics, Posey still doesn’t have 10 RBI’s. 6 homers, 6 solo shots.

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:27 am

      Pence out again. Some sort of leg issue. He’s going to struggle to get to his back of the card numbers.

  19. dirtnrocksnomo said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:26 am

    Lefty O’Doul: Baseball’s Forgotten Ambassador By Dennis Snelling is the book.

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:35 am

        Actually, I kind of like this lineup today. Look for Spandog to lead the club!

  22. zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Breaking Away is great.
    There’s a scene where the guys drive through the college area and the Daniel Stern character leans out of the car window and calls out to some college women: “Hey, what’s your major?!”
    It’s funny, and it’s poignant. The locals and the college kids, sharing the town, but in different worlds.

    • Lurker John said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:21 pm

      Very Rocky-esque in some ways, but with more charm. Barbara Barrie and Paul Dooley almost steal the show as Dave’s parents. A young Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern and Jackie Earle Haley alongside Dennis Christopher. Not too many movies are shot in Indiana. Good stuff.

      • zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:27 pm

        Well said.

    Hamilton not in Reds lineup today.

    • zumiee said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:27 pm

      Yeah, he definitely had a hitch in his get-along in the later part of that game. Some kind of issue with his calf.

      • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:44 pm

        That would explain why his streak of scoring a run was broken. 🙂

  24. snarkk said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:31 pm

    Friggin cold out there late last night. Not good for muscle pulls and strains. The cold probably bothers Pence’s repaired hammy…

    • alleykat69 said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:42 pm

      Would not have wanted to be Buster in the squat for 269 pitches last night!
      And yet he said fuck this game, I’m gonna end this marathon night with a bomb! I tip a knowing nod of the SF cap at you Buster!
      Enjoy your day off, till your neededlate to win another game..

      • Flavor said, on May 13, 2017 at 12:45 pm

        Absolutely. Man-child performance by him ending with what looked like a bit of a bat flip? I’d have to watch it again.

  25. alleykat69 said, on May 13, 2017 at 1:21 pm

    Belt Splash!!

  26. djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 1:33 pm

    Why doesn’t MLB just donate the money that all the pink stuff costs instead of having it made up and only donating (per Amy G.) the “royalties” from it. I don’t even know what that means…

  27. snarkk said, on May 13, 2017 at 1:37 pm

    This Bonilla dude has been with a handful of teams, and has been striking a lot of guys out in the minors for the Reds, but getting hammered down there nonetheless. For once the Giants should tee off on a guy like this…

  28. snarkk said, on May 13, 2017 at 1:40 pm

    How does Moore walk the oppo pitcher ? Seriously. The guy has no MLB batting average this season. Yet, Moore walks the guy, then walks the next guy, too. Has to be some kind of mental thing. Whatever, he needs to get it together…

    • alleykat69 said, on May 13, 2017 at 2:20 pm

      • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 3:34 pm

    It’s a big bat for him, big opportunity,from the mouth of Krukow.As the automatic out Gorkys grounds out meekly to kill another scoring chance..

  43. chipower9 said, on May 13, 2017 at 4:02 pm

    Damn. Just checked the box. 120 pitches, and 8 hits and three walks with seven Ks over 7.1 for Moore. Glad to see the starters doing their job. Hopefully Shark can continue the trend tomorrow. Has this team won three in a row this year?

  44. djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 4:15 pm

    I have no words to describe what the Brewers catcher looks like with a pink mask, pink chest protector, pink shin guards and pink shoes…

  45. snarkk said, on May 13, 2017 at 4:43 pm

    Specs.
    Dude always brings something to the table at the plate. His speed forced that “hit” he got, which was really an error on the SS. No way Hill should be back…

  46. snarkk said, on May 13, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Nice win.
    Still, they didn’t hit. 6 hits only, 2 HRs got it done, with the Specs RBI hit (really an error) the insurance.
    Not going to win many games with 6 hits. Moore was good, Pen got it done…

    • chipower9 said, on May 13, 2017 at 6:02 pm

      I don’t give a fuck (if they hit) if they scratch out at least three runs, and most importantly, they win.

      • snarkk said, on May 13, 2017 at 6:10 pm

        Chi, this team can’t hit. You’re not going to win many like this one without the Core Four…

  47. djloo27 said, on May 13, 2017 at 5:07 pm

    I think they are being intentionally secretive about Bumgarner’s status for the rest of the season.
    Unless I missed something, I think they should have some idea by now…

    • chipower9 said, on May 13, 2017 at 6:08 pm

      I went back and googled recovery prognosis. All of the latest updates (late April) was that he would need at least two months. Hasn’t been a month yet, so not sure we should expect to hear anything yet.

      But it will be nice to get an update. I know many (I believe including you, Loo) think he’s done for the year (hope you guys are done) I still think he’ll be back this year.

  48. pawliekokonuts said, on May 13, 2017 at 5:34 pm

    victory

  49. Lurker John said, on May 13, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    Loo, I cheated, but it’s Montreal Expos Baseball.

    As an utterly bizarre add-on, but Joe mentioning not knowing about the Brewers logo happened to me about 2 weeks ago when I came across an article about a contest the Brewers held in the late 70’s to pick a new logo. A local art student came up with the glove logo and the rest is history. I always thought the logo was stupid because it just looks like a glove, but I see it in a whole new light now. It’s so cool that as of a week ago I now own one of their caps.

    I found this link about hidden meanings in logos and it’s pretty interesting. I had no idea about the Falcons crest:

      I used to call them the Montreal Elbows because of that logo.

      I sat next to the Expos fan once. He seemed to be a pretty nice guy…

    According to the Giant’s website, Bum may start playing catch at the end of this month. Melancon is due to start playing catch any time now.

    Keith Hernandez played in the ’80s, when the players wore incredibly tight uniforms. Yeah, that was such a more manly look.

    I’m OK with the pink unis this weekend. It’s a good cause, and the sport needs to get beyond its fuddy-duddy image sometimes.

      Yes, the days of the double-knit unis. For the most part, an era best left in the past.

      He didn’t say anything about the manliness of it.
      That’s your interpretation.

      Yeah, each win this season seems like climbing this mountain:

    The Padres lost; we moved up a little!

    Bum was reported to have a grade 2 shoulder separation. No surgery usually with a grade 1 and 2. But, there’s a good amount of damage. The shoulder joint and capsule will be loosened. They’ll do rehab of course, but hey, any shoulder injury with ligament damage can’t be a good thing for a pitcher. If you’re a linebacker, whatever. But throwing a baseball is another deal altogether…

    From : https://www.cedars-sinai.edu/Patients/Programs-and-Services/Orthopaedic-Center/Clinical-Programs/Sports-Medicine/Acromioclavicular-AC-Joint-Separation.aspx

    “There can be varying amount of damage in the process of an AC joint separation, these injuries are given ratings. There a total of six grades. The most common are:

    Grade 1 AC joint separation is a slight displacement of the joint. The AC ligament may be badly stretched or partly torn.
    Grade 2 AC joint separation involves a partial dislocation of the joint. This may not be easy to see. The AC ligament is completely torn. The nearby coracoclavicular ligaments are not, however.
    Grade 3 AC joint separation is a complete separation of the joint, which is clear to see. Both sets of ligaments are torn as well as the capsule that surrounds the joint. Because there’s no support to the joint left, the shoulder falls with the weight of the arm. The shoulder blade is pushed up making a bump on the shoulder.

    Surgery to Treat Acromioclavicular Joint Separation
    Anyone who has a Grade 4 through 6 separation and some people with Grade 3 separations mostly likely will need surgery. Surgery is also an option if conservative medical care doesn’t bring significant improvement.

    Several techniques for treating an AC joint separation with surgery exist. Most of them involve reconstructing the ligaments. Pins or plates may be used to improve stability.”

    Nats signed Harper yesterday to a $21.65 million contract for 2018 to buy out that last year of his arbitration. Biggest buyout ever. He smoked a 2-run walk-off dinger tonight…

    As a Sports med Physical Therapist i applaud snarkk. Great work on the definitions. Giants medical staff doesn’t exactly have a great history getting guys right but.. A grade 2 usually heals. The coracoid ligaments are intact, and the blood supply to the AC when it is stable is pretty good. Just llke a moderate ankle sprain can heal and take the repeated stress an NBA player puts on it ala Steph Curry. No guarantees. The biggest issue is guys coming back too early and messing it up again. Well we never see the Giants make a bad call in that regard right????

    • snarkk said, on May 13, 2017 at 10:42 pm

      IF he really has a 2, he’s damn lucky. That’s a $125+ million shoulder, and no surgery. Any cutting on it due to a dirt bike episode would be beyond ridiculous…
