10 Straight Losses at Nepal

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 6, 2017

Melonhead still being that game gamer that Bochy loves. I swear to God, Bochy doesn’t think past the game he’s watching. Complete baseball goon. And I really don’t think he minds all this losing. I mean, I know he’d rather win and I’m sure the losses grind on him, but at the end of the day he just wants to be sitting on the bench chewing seeds and slapping asses. He has no reason to want to leave….

At this point, I’m rooting for Pablo to catch Velez. What’s he need? 9 more? Let’s go. It’s actually probably the only thing that will stop Bochy from rolling him out there. Doubt he would let him get to 46…….

I’m also rooting for 100 losses since I think that ’85 team gets too much shit. The 2017 team should catch miles more shit for losing 100 than the ’85 team…..

    “We’re just on wrong end of a few things. That’s how the game goes.”

    Bochy? Nope.
    Justin Turner after his 2 run throwing error in 10th led to Dodgers 10th L in last 11 and 5th in row,

    Loo, nice card re: Mack Jones. Their road gray unis I thought were very cool.
    really dug Rico Carty, who got hurt and never ever matched early numbers either.

    I am with you on this squad losing 100. Maybe that will shake things up with Booby and crew. 21 games to play and 13 more puts them at the magic 100. So come on Giants! Tuck your tails between your legs and piss like a puppy, you worthless pieces of shit.

    I am taking Loo’s lead. Only 25 days until Pitchers and Catchers LEAVE (and take all the other fucking dead weight with them).

    • djloo27 said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:32 am

      Way to go, Chi!
      It feels good to know the end is near…

      • chipower9 said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:44 am

        Agree, Loo. Great suggestion…but coming from you, absolutely no surprise. Hope all is well my friend.

    Hey, football season starts tomorrow . . .

    I tell ya, watching the Giants is like watching an autopsy. Mildly interesting, fairly gross, and in the end just a disgusting pile of goo.

    Melancon was trotted out to give up 3 hits and 2 runs in 0.2 innings of exemplary work. So glad he’s gutting out these meaningful games.

    Is he trying to get his era over 5.00? They should sit everyone and start the Flying Squirrels in their place.

  5. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:25 am

    They could very easily go 0-September. This team is flatter than Kyrie Irving’s Earth.

  6. willedav said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:32 am

    wins after Belt now 12-18. Watching ryder Jones f up a ground ball and then throw it away on rare occasion Osich should have gotten a guy out, ugh. Sando continues the 0-for and now Posey hurt after the foul off his hand. Shaw not on 40 and going to Fall ball. AZ played Descalso at 1b in place of Golds last night.

    Kuiper on radio said Jones reminds him of M Williams first year the way he can’t lay off breaking stuff, nor hit it.
    Looking forward to seeing Slater play, anywhere.

    Yeah great weekend of college ball last week plus Monday, lot going on this week too…Cards-SC, Okla-OSU, Clemson-Auburn, yada yada. Sometimes too much read into Sept ball first week see who rebounds/rights ship.

  7. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:34 am

    This team is a shoo-in for 100 losses. They need to go 9-12 to reach 63 wins. That ain’t gonna happen.

  8. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:38 am

    Willie, college ball gets so annoying. Tennessee couldn’t stop the read-option all night. And they still won.

    • chipower9 said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:44 am

      I will take a college game all day every day over the NFL right now. The NFL has become damned near unwatchable to me. No flow to the game. Too many flags. Give me college football any day.

  9. Flavor said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:35 am

    the WAB is now at .400, still higher than the .378 they clipped at with him in the LU. I personally think WAB is a better indication of team performance than WAR, which i think is mostly bullshit metric elitism……

  10. djloo27 said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:36 am

    Six games with the Giants should help get LA back on track…

    • chipower9 said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:46 am

      Bahaha…no shit. We can help them turn that shitty run around in a heartbeat…

      I still see their sorry asses choking again this year…

  11. snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:55 am

    I’m down with all BF says in the opener. Bochy won’t allow Panda to break the record, and he shouldn’t, actually. Panda did things for the Giants that helped them win titles, so he doesn’t need to own that kind of record. Even Kruk on KNBR today was semi-wondering why Melancon was still out there. He said all that mattered now was that he recovers from surgery in time to be totally ready for mext Spring Training from the get go. Ya think? Just another head scratcher for a season of very questionable moves from this Giants management. Outfield, Pen, third and first — this squad is full of holes, and few in the minors to fix it. Get out the checkbook…

  12. alleykat69 said, on September 6, 2017 at 10:56 am

    Shit what happened to Trevor Brown?
    Guy can’t even get a call up, his numbers must stink when he can’t beat out Fedex..

  13. alleykat69 said, on September 6, 2017 at 11:03 am

    You guys have it wrong I believe, Panda has tied Johhny Lemaster at 37 straight zippos so he can set the record by himself.Part of Velez ineptitude was with the Giants but continued with the Dodgers to get his 47 the next season..I believe??

  14. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2017 at 12:30 pm

    7-14 on the other hand gets them to 101. From first to worst in Giants history in 3 short years.

    If you are going to go bad, go very bad. The pen right now is a joke of a riddle wrapped in a turd.

  15. alleykat69 said, on September 6, 2017 at 1:26 pm

    Speaking of polishing a turd 💩 Krukow keeps trying to polish one everyday..
    He mentioned playoff teams really don’t want to face the Giants down the stretch!
    Is he fucking nuts are what?
    Players on every team are lining up at the bat racks for their opportunity to clobber Giants pitchers…

  16. sandog said, on September 6, 2017 at 2:24 pm

    100 Losses? I’m rooting for it to really wrap a bow on this season and, like others said, make sure everyone in the front office, back office, and side office is shaken up and realizes we got some serious issues.

    Bochy? I don’t think he’s going anywhere. I couldn’t care less how he looks or what he says during post-game pressers. He’s never gonna be a guy who flips tables or makes a big scene when things are going badly.

    Melancon? It sure does seem odd that he is not shut down totally, but I also respect him for going out there and giving it his all.

    College v Pro Football? I have somehow lost my passion for both. Now that I have a DVR again for the first time in several years, maybe I will watch more. Isn’t college the one that stops the clock on every first down and slows the game down even more???

  17. Flavor said, on September 6, 2017 at 2:33 pm

    this might be the worst line up ever deployed at Coors Field. Zero power anywhere including a back up catcher hitting clean up.

    • djloo27 said, on September 6, 2017 at 3:31 pm

      They’ll probably hit 4 HRS…
      (It’s still Coors)

  19. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2017 at 6:16 pm

    Slater looks good.

  20. alleykat69 said, on September 6, 2017 at 6:17 pm

    McRae hard ass like most dudes in that era when real baseball was played, not these pansy now days! Shit that was a great sideway launch 🚀 totally legal back then.
    Loved the ump with just his nonchalant raise of his arm for the 1 out..

  21. snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 6:52 pm

    Why was Craw trying to bunt with runners at 1st and 3rd with one out? He’s been hitting the ball hard and raking lately. I’m usually up for some bunts, but not then, that didn’t make much sense — he’s one of the few that pop a dinger once in a while. So, instead he popped out the bunt attempt. Flemm questioned it, though in a tired of the season sorta way…

    • Flavor said, on September 6, 2017 at 7:24 pm

      i preferred the bunt attempt to the strike out with the bases loaded.

  22. James said, on September 6, 2017 at 7:22 pm

    Not the biggest Panik fan, but mostly because he’s been so overrated. It’s good to see him start picking it up. The fact it’s happening now is not at all a reason to downplay the performance. Trying to be positive . . . .

  23. James said, on September 6, 2017 at 7:49 pm

    Stay positive?! WTF am I thinking? If they finish with 100+ losses, the WAB % will be in the negative. Go Rockies!

  24. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2017 at 7:50 pm

    Pablo inches closer.

    • James said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:06 pm

      He broke the SF record, he can always hold on to that.

    • Flavor said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:18 pm

      i bet Velez is watching all these games hanging on every Pablo at bat…..

  25. snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:08 pm

    Up 7-1, the Pen may be able to hold off the Rocks, bit I sure as hell wouldn’t bet the farm on it w 3 + frames to go in this launching pad park…

  26. snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:13 pm

    Ryder Jones better have a hitting light bulb go off real soon, else he should be trade bait or permanent AAAA roster filler material…

    • Flavor said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:16 pm

      he sucks. Cut from the most classic of honky cloths.

  27. willedav said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:21 pm

    Mac smoked that one, line shot off 97.

  28. willedav said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Rather see Giants catch a team or three in front of them. Like to see Bum Cueto and Smardz pick up a couple more Ws, more saves for Dyson and some of the kids rake and serve some notice for next year.

    Dodgers, for all their power (5thNL in HRs) and runs, are #1 in team ERA even with Opie on the DL for a while.

    No doubt upper deck shot from Blackmon. And Bochy takes the ball from Okert. back to reality.

  29. snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Friggin Blackmons beard looks like he’s probably got varmints growing in there. Can Okert or Osich ever pitch a clean inning ? Sheezus they suck…

  30. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:37 pm

    The overrated one is raking. Pretty good call by Kuip on the base hit.

  31. James said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:40 pm

    Where are all of the veiled criticisms of Panik’s “streakiness”? Fuck you K&K.

    • willedav said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:53 pm

      hey look at it this way– anyone raking right now could be showcasing themselves to be trade bait out of town.

  32. willedav said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    One guy you can give Evans credit for signing this offseason was Hundley. He has added some pop to C position and bench and is a vet guy to work with pitchers. I know SD was high on the guy, proved to be right he could help the team.

  33. James said, on September 6, 2017 at 8:59 pm

    Watching Gearrin throw a 95 mph sidearm fastball, combined with a wicked slider, it’s a shame he doesn’t have enough command to rise above shitty ass mediocrity. I looked up Romo’s stats for the first time in a while. He’s been excellent for Tampa Bay. I liked him as much as I do Belt.

  34. James said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:05 pm

    Panik and Pablo, record setters!

  35. alleykat69 said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:05 pm

    Never know with players sometimes, cause Hundley sure sucked the 1st few months, now he’s a major contributor which of course now he will leave as a F/A to get a better gig/ possible starter somewhere else..

    • snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:15 pm

      Agreed Kat. Hundley was dogmeat at the plate the first half of the season. He’d hit a double every once in a while to get his SLG up, interwoven with Ks and ground outs galore. Now during an even more meaningless second half, his bat awakens. Maybe that’s the clue to put Posey at first, give Hundley the majority of C starts next year…

      • James said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:24 pm

        He’ll be 34 next year. His OPS will be lousy, do not be fooled.

      • snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:28 pm

        Posey’s improved offense as first sacker might make up the difference. Posey’s hitting the late season offensive skids as usual, and getting dinged up…

      • James said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:35 pm

        I’ve done the painstaking analysis on his 1B stats. Most of the PAs are against left handers. Posey rakes lefties. It’s doubtful.

      • Lurker John said, on September 6, 2017 at 10:38 pm

        Best defensive catcher in the game. Pretty hard to give that up at age 30-31.

  36. James said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:10 pm

    Hundley has a lifetime 708 OPS, which matches what he’s done for SF this year. I appreciate that. He’ll be 34 next year.

  37. James said, on September 6, 2017 at 9:24 pm

    While I’m expressing gratitude, I want to acknowledge BF for my ongoing editing privileges on this site. Without them, my lack of typing skills combined with a love of wine would leave a pretty embarrassing trail.

  38. zumiee said, on September 6, 2017 at 10:44 pm

    The 2017 Dodgers will not reach the season wins record. That dream has died tonight.

  39. James said, on September 6, 2017 at 10:47 pm

    http://www.csnbayarea.com/giants/brandon-belt-asks-giants-fans-why-he-sucks

    Belt’s UT Austin education showing a tiny bit there. If only he could rise above The Olive Garden.

  40. snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 10:55 pm

    Well, tongiht’s win keeps the interest level on the “luke warm” setting. Panik is now finally hitting, with the season lost…

    • James said, on September 6, 2017 at 11:06 pm

      If he had hit well while the season was still on the line with this team, it would not have made any difference. And he would probably have gone 2-16 during this series. He’s a mid-700s OPS player.

    • snarkk said, on September 6, 2017 at 11:23 pm

      I won’t cry if he’s trade bait for an outfield top prospect. He’s a good fielder, but slow afoot, and hasn’t hit over his career so far to the level I first expected of him. Of course if he hit earlier, that wouldn’t have changed much for this season, unless that somehow changed others’ hitting for the better…
