Weaklings

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 21, 2017

I get it, AT&T Park is not a home run hitters park. But we are particularly weak in our own park. We’ve hit 25 measly bombs in a place we are supposed to know better than anyone else. The next lowest home HR total is 40 for the Pirates.

And 25 bombs wouldn’t be the end of the world if our opposition was also having trouble with power. But other teams are not having the same problems we are with knocking the ball out of the park. Our opponents  have 39 dongs, 14 more than us. It’s entirely possible that we get doubled up, in our own place, by the end of the season.

That is embarrassing and unacceptable.

    That blown save was positively Giant-like …

    the longest 9 inning game just went extras? amazing

  3. zumiee said, on July 21, 2017 at 11:16 pm

    I did not see that coming. 🙂

    Is it required that a Giants reliever walk at least one guy per inning?…

  5. snarkk said, on July 21, 2017 at 11:22 pm

    Uh oh. Hector’s up…

    “who doesn’t like a story about a guy coming home with his tail between his legs looking to re-start his life?”

    I want to see the evidence first that he feels that his tail is between his legs. If he comes back with the attitude that he’s doing the last-place Giants a favor, then I’m not digging that.

    ooooh well

    They fight back to tie and Dyson walks 2 of the first 3 guys he sees.

      and then looked pretty good. Those ones to Hacktor were unhittable. Throws pretty hard too.

    Checked out, checked back, wow, didn’t see that coming.

    the seagulls are pissed off

  11. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2017 at 11:42 pm

    ahhhh how many guys on this team passed their shelf life in 2015? Kontos leads the pack. Pence not far behind.

    • willedav said, on July 21, 2017 at 11:48 pm

      he’s now allowed a run to score off him 3 of last 4 times out and 6 of last 8 appearances. Compost.

    Pfffttt!

  13. snarkk said, on July 21, 2017 at 11:48 pm

    Kontos doesn’t have much left these days. His ABs are too long, he doesn’t have an out pitch that works much.
    He’s been overused…

    “I’m waiting for Friday to make a decision, and the Giants are one of my options,” Sandoval told ESPN’s Marly Rivera in a text. “I have a few teams interested but I can’t make a decision until Friday.”

    I’m feeling the love.

      Pablo = clueless

  15. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2017 at 11:52 pm

    Can he even field 3rd base anymore? He’s going to the AL. If someone truly wants him . . .

    • zumiee said, on July 21, 2017 at 11:54 pm

      He was really awful for the Red Sox. I watched several of his games. It’s questionable that he’s a major leaguer anymore.

  16. blade3colorado said, on July 21, 2017 at 11:58 pm

    Today’s game is a microcosm of the Giants POS pitching staff.

  17. xoot said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:03 am

    I don’t know. This one looked macro to me. Macro POS

  18. snarkk said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:05 am

    Hey, they scored 9. That’s pretty unusual.
    The Pen sucked. That’s not unusual…

    • blade3colorado said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:09 am

      Nope, but Alphabet was no great shakes either – 8 hits, 5 runs, 3 SOs, in 4.1 innings. By the by, he joined the 5 plus ERA club today too. Ugh.

      • snarkk said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:13 am

        Agreed. Kruk is excusing Kontos for getting smoked due to recent overuse. I’ll agree with him on that a little, as i said above. Still, the Pads Pen probably isn’t exactly fresh as a daisy, and they held the line in extras…

  19. Macdog said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:08 am

    Another one for the birds.

  20. zumiee said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:09 am

    The Giants have to go at least 26-38 the rest of the way to avoid 100 losses.

    • snarkk said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:20 am

      That’s .406 ball.
      I don’t think they can stay on a 4 wins out of 10 clip…

  21. blade3colorado said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:22 am

    No easy fixes to this outfit. I can easily see a multi-year rebuild, maybe 5 years, when you consider the almost maximum luxury tax payroll and poor minor league system.

    • zumiee said, on July 22, 2017 at 12:31 am

      The only positive thing about 100 losses is high draft picks. They need to draft well.

  22. blade3colorado said, on July 22, 2017 at 2:10 am

    For shit and giggles, I’m going to miss this guy. Huhuhu . . .

    • zumiee said, on July 22, 2017 at 6:05 am

      We had our very own Baghdad Bob.

      • blade3colorado said, on July 22, 2017 at 8:20 am

        Actually, I was thinking of Lord Haw Haw (William Joyce). Beginning in 1939, millions of Britons regularly tuned in to a German propaganda broadcast hosted by a smug Nazi sympathizer nicknamed “Lord Haw Haw.” Several men were identified with the name, but it was most famously associated with William Joyce, an American-born fascist who had spent most of his life in the United Kingdom.
