When Everyone Is In The Wrong

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 30, 2017

Who was worse yesterday? Idiot Strickland for doing a slow burn on a thousand day old grudge that was his fault to begin with? Or Posey who watched men fighting the same way we did through our tv? There is also an argument that both were equally in the wrong.

Posey had to do something. Even if you don’t want to fight, you can’t just watch for as long as he did. He had to do something. It can’t be that he makes a lot of money and because of that he’s not allowed to go out there. Smarge has a 70 million dollar deal and he flew into that scrum like a linebacker playing in his last college bowl game. Smarge was Candy Maldonado reincarnated and it was fantastic.

If you’re Posey and 2 things happen immediately 1) you knew he was gonna do it and/or 2) you didn’t think Harper was going to go out there, it’s reasonable to assume he wouldn’t react immediately. But to just stand there motionless, for several seconds, and then jog out to the pile only to do an quick bee line jump to the left of it, I dunno….that’s pretty weak, man. Plus, he had on all his catchers gear. He couldn’t have been more protected if he’d gone out there in bubble wrap.

There is no defense for what Strick did. He put a stupid grudge above the team and above winning. Here’s an idea dipshit: try getting the guy out for once. He has now endangered his fellow teammates who are now targets for retaliation and he endangered the teammates who had to awkwardly drag him off the field. It’s disappointing we don’t have a bullpen that can withstand his demotion.

Frankly, if you are looking at who you want in your “fox hole” I don’t think you want either guy. One is afraid to fight and one is all about himself and simmering on shit that has nothing to do with the team or winning.

It was a stupid event that masked another embarrassing performance by our offense. As fans who want to see the team start winning consistently, yesterday was a complete waste of time.

    This team just flat stinks. The outfield is an embarrassment.
    With all these scrap heap guys shuttling in/out, there’s no there, there. No energy, no mojo, bad chemistry. Like BF said in this thread, the Giants front office has some big time ‘splainin to do for nearly $200MM. This season is done, looks like something out of the wasteland ’70s. Time to make lemonade out of this lemon year…

    New guy just a the latest novelty act management is trying out.Maybe set a record playing all 3 outfield positions tonight in his first game.
    Just grasping for straws, every game to put a OF together that never works.

      KNBR says Calixte was the 9th, the NINTH, starting LFer so far this season, not even into June. That is beyond pathetic …

    What’s shocking to me is that not only did the Front Office do NOTHING beyond signing Melancon during the off-season, when everyone else knew it wasn’t enough…. but even more so, how we’re now just about into June and the lineup STILL sucks big time. Wish I could be a fly on the wall of that *front office*. Would love to know what they talk about. “Um, candlesticks are always a nice gift…” …

    I’m beginning to absolve the front office of major blame for this cluster fuck of a season. Something you just said Zum, crystallized thoughts that have gnawed on me for some time. This is my reasoning . . .

    In 2014, we had our last hurrah. The front office has responded the last 3 years with one of the highest payrolls in MLB. Alphabet, Cueto, Hudson, Span, and Melancon added. Humongous contract for Cain, and major contracts for Crawford and Belt. Nunez and Moore added last season for playoff run. In short, they retooled.

    That being said, I was one of the loudest about upgrading left field, which wasn’t done. I also thought we made a MAJOR mistake not adding Jansen and instead, going for Melancon (who I thought was finished and still think will go belly up sometime this season). Last, but not least, big, big mistake I said on numerous occasions not adding the dirt cheap Greg Holland as insurance.

    However, I totally get the Front Office saying, “Okay boys, put up or shut up. We have $200 million plus invested and we’ll pour more money in at the trade deadline, but you have to do your part.”

    Which brings me to what Zum just said about Span, Alphabet, Moore, etc. You want to be a Giants player? Then start fucking playing like one.

      I think the FO saying the players have to put up or shut up is BS. That’s total shifting of any responsibility for putting this POS roster together. If you spend a ton of money on an expensive car that’s alway in the shop, you’re the one that made the bogus choice to spend the dough on a lemon….

        Hindsight is 20/20 . . . For me, you, everyone. Majority of Flappers all endorsed Span, Alphabet, Moore, and Nunez being added to the team. Cain mega contract – same thing. All of them have been mediocre or face planted IMO. Regarding the outfield, they were counting heavily on Pence and Span to have normal seasons, with Parker and Williamson being adequate. Remember, left field has always been more or less an abyss since Bonds retired.

    31 of the 54 games so far, the Giants have score 3 runs or less. They are 16-7 in the other games where they’ve scored 4 or more…

    • blade3colorado said, on May 30, 2017 at 11:46 pm

      Tom, no disagreement on this team being less than putrid. I’m​ just saying the FO put together this team, which most, if not all Flappers thought was going to the playoffs this season. Am I right on that point? If yes, than how can you say it’s ALL on the FO? 538 indicated we were favored to go to the playoffs before this POS season started. They, along with many other experts, GOT IT WRONG. It happens.
