Bomb Time

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 27, 2017

McCuller’s is gonna need to bring that sick bendy with him today because Houston has their hands full with Darvish. Yes, they know him. But that’s where the advantage ends. They have one hitter who’s had success off him (Springer):

But hey, it’s the World Series and the game of baseball seems to have been reduced to a home run derby. And Minute Made Park, at least left field, is a “joke” (Remember when Barry Bonds called it that during the 2004 Derby? And the right handers just kept flipping the ball into the left field stands???). Barry no likey.

So let’s hope Springer and his pals can blast 5 or 6 bombs off LA tonight and take the lead in this series…..

    Tough at home, hope Stros can keep that up.

    This, from blogger on mlbtr re: Girardi.
    “These are the candidates? This is why they got rid of Girardi? For a shot at Tony Pena Tim Naehring and Raul Ibanez?”

  2. snarkk said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:36 am

    Looks like so far the coaches interviewing with the Giants immediately sign with the Cubs…

  3. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:42 am

    Sac scored 70 in the 1st half and 36 in the 2nd? Ouch.

    Anyone been to the new Sacto arena? Last game I saw there was 5 years ago at Arco . . .

    • Flavor said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:44 am

      I was surprised Hield didn’t jack up 20 shots, it was a revenge gm for him too

    • unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:57 am

      Crazy game I guess. Shit, I missed Vinsanity going to the Kings. Are they serious?

  4. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:58 am

    The Yanks getting rid of Girardi smacks of the desperation of the 49ers dumping George Seifert.

    “Sac scored 70 in the 1st half and 36 in the 2nd? Ouch.”

    Endless 3-point range bricks in the second half. It drove me nuts. But that’s the NBA these days.
    It also drives me nuts when the entire defense sags in when someone drives into the key. That’s how all these 3-point shot attempts are open all the time. I guess that’s what they are coached to do, but it just turns the NBA into constant 3-point shots, with the occasional closer shot. I fully understand that the off-side needs to help on defense, but sometimes it’s 3 or more guys trying to stop the guy driving in and all those 3-point shooters are open. It makes for lazy defense, IMO. Guys just start automatically sagging in all the time, and the NBA guys just throw the skip pass for a wide open 3. So we end up with the irony that the offenses want to shoot a bunch of 3s, and the defenses want to let them shoot them. Huh?

    • Macdog said, on October 27, 2017 at 12:41 pm

      The Nets a couple nights ago shot 47 3’s, made 17 (37 percent) and beat LeBron and the Cavs, so I’m diggin’ this style of play.

  6. Flavor said, on October 27, 2017 at 2:21 pm

    maybe he just really really fucking likes to raise money?

  7. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 3:01 pm

    If LA goes down 2-1, I think Roberts would be making a big mistake not going to Kershaw in Game 4…

    • gianthead said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:34 pm

      Kershaw has consistently sucked on short rest. They ain’t going to do it…

      • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:46 pm

        Right, but he only threw 83 pitches on Tuesday and he’ll have had 4 nights of sleep and all day Saturday to rest. He should be given the chance to prove his greatness in games 4 & 7 if there is one…

  8. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 3:10 pm

    Probably said the same thing in 2014 when the Giants down 2-1 started Vogelsong in Game 4 and held back Bum for Game 5…

  9. alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 4:01 pm

    All I really want to know is ,Who the hell is “Juan Centeno”?
    A really good Cuban Cigar?
    The new replacement dude for “Stay thirsty my friend “?
    An old porn star?

    • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:39 pm

      Sounds like a second rate jockey or the guy that sells coffee with his donkey…

  10. zumiee said, on October 27, 2017 at 4:03 pm

    Meanwhile at the Houston Texan’s practice field…..
    “Texans owner Bob McNair put a Texas-sized boot in his mouth at a recent NFL meeting when he reportedly said “we can’t have the inmates running the prison.”
    His apology Friday morning, saying, in part, “I regret that I used that expression,” did little to calm his players, who later in the day had to be persuaded not to walk out on practice en masse, according to ESPN.”

    • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:43 pm

      If he used the common expression (asylum instead of prison) would anyone have cared?

      • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:48 pm

        And while McNair should’ve known better, I wish the overly sensitive millionaire assholes would’ve walked…

  11. Macdog said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:41 pm

    The good news is Darvish is on pace to throw 60 pitches by sometime in the 4th inning.

  12. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:45 pm

    I wish they would wear Colt .45 throwbacks for one home game…

    • wilcojoe said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:54 pm

      You aren’t the only one. The guy that does the Super 70 sports tweets that Flav posts has been clamoring for them to wear a different throwback for each game. A lot of people agree with him including me. The league won’t allow it though.

  13. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:53 pm

    FUCK YU!!!

  14. wilcojoe said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:54 pm

    Yu meet Yuli!

  15. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:55 pm

    Surprised Reddick didn’t turn right at first base out of habit…

  16. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 5:58 pm

    Gattis looks like Jim Morrison near the end of his life…

  17. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:04 pm

    Those shiny, ill-fitting, cheap looking WS sleeve patches are annoying the fuck out of me…

    • wilcojoe said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:08 pm

      The Giants must have used up all the good ones. I agree, this years suck.

      • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:25 pm

        It’s distracting – I can’t stop looking at it.
        It’s like an annoying song I can’t get out of my head…

  18. wilcojoe said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:06 pm

    Nice!

  19. Flavor said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:09 pm

    really enjoying this baseball game tonight…..

  20. Macdog said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:12 pm

    Yu gone.

  21. willedav said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:19 pm

    Headline I’m waiting to wake up one morning and read:
    Giants announce Bruce bochy has been reassigned as director of reassigned roving supervisors.
    Giants announce Joe Girardi has been hired as mgr.

    This works on so many levels. First, he is 3000 miles away from intense scrutiny of NYC.
    Second he is proven winner with 3 rings as player 1 as mgr. He has been successful (career avg. wins as mgr. 91, never less than 84) with all kinds of different teams. He’s won with aging overpaid vets (sound familiar?) and underpaid kids as in this year when they finished 2nd in division took out Tribe and went 7 with World Champion to be Stros.
    Third, he is fiery guy not afraid to shake things up, and will challenge mgmt. to maintain talent level to compete with hated rivals (like the ones currently in WS).
    4th, he played 10-12 years in the NL so he knows the game is played.
    5th, NY connection with so many Giants including Rags Sabes Meulens (who stays as bench coach) and others.

    Just do it!

    • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:28 pm

      He will nickname our 2nd baseman “Panicky”…

    • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:38 pm

      I think Girardi’s pretty fried and could use a year off. I wouldn’t want him anyway.
      Nats are probably interested…

    • alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:48 pm

      #6 for Joe Girardi he’s a Catcher!!
      But you know what I’m sick and tired of Catchers getting the Manager jobs they don’t all pan out imo..

  22. gianthead said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:27 pm

    Keep it up Stros…

  23. zumiee said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:29 pm

    So another pitcher is chickening out vs. the Dodgers. Seen it all season.

  24. zumiee said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:31 pm

    Huge double-play.

  25. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:35 pm

    No lead is safe anywhere anymore (except at AT&T against the Giants)…

  26. wilcojoe said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:52 pm

    Take a seat Puig!

  27. Flavor said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:53 pm

    man fuck Puig. That was rad.

  28. alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 6:53 pm

    LMAO Puig!!’
    Your such a “LOSER”

  29. Flavor said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    Puig is nothing but dumb fake hustle. What kind of a dipshit tries to get to second base after running up the line in that situation? You only go if it’s a slam dunk. Total fucking dumbass play. He could give a shit, he got his hit and then he fake hustled. That’s all that idiot is about.

    • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:08 pm

      He only has a half dozen things the Giants can use:
      Talent – Power – Speed – Charisma – Athleticism – Attitude

      • Flavor said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:17 pm

        he would some how,some way, make us worse. I wouldn’t take that idiot for free.

      • alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:35 pm

        Any guy that kisses his batting coach,his bats maybe his balls I’ll pass.He’s a freaking”Headcase” and I’m sure still he’s a cancer among his fellow players that just won’t admit it..

      • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:36 pm

        I’m obsessed with the idea of him in a Giant uniform.
        Maybe some day if I live long enough…

      • xoot said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:50 pm

        Look up “puigheaded” in a good on line dictionary and you’ll see a clip of him bat flipping over a long foul ball

      • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:52 pm

        It’s part of his charm, Xoot…

      • alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:59 pm

        Yeah but weren’t you obsessed with Cespedes in a Giant Uniform as well Loo?Though I would take him if he could ever stay healthy..

      • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:17 pm

        Yes, after 2015 very much…

  30. Macdog said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:27 pm

    Saaaaaaaaaaaafe!

  31. alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:28 pm

    That’s some of the old dodgers defense I’m use too!
    Great Hustle by Reddick!
    I know he’s burning inside to beat his old team, who he said never liked him..

  32. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:38 pm

    I think Turner has George Brett-like illegal pine tar way up on his bat…

  33. zumiee said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:47 pm

    Some gift runs for the Dodgers. Why not?

  34. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:52 pm

    Shit. Got to get those runs back. Frigging Dogs are going to burn pen again. Let’s hope they get shelled by the 8th.

  35. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 7:57 pm

    • unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:06 pm

      Is that supposed to be Justin Turner without the beard?

      • djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:15 pm

        I think it is…

    • alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:30 pm

      Maybe Mark Davis after he moved the Raiders to Vegas..

  36. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:11 pm

    Fuck.

  39. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    I saw Stripling’s last warm-up pitch in the pen and he did not look loose. Unfortunately he gets 8 more now.They should limit relievers to 4 warm-up pitches when they enter the game if only to speed things up…

  40. djloo27 said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:34 pm

    Look alive in the Crawford boxes…

  41. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:35 pm

    Fuck…..

  42. zumiee said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:37 pm

    Man….that was close.

  43. zumiee said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:38 pm

    Well, now it’s all about getting the 6 outs. Somehow.

  44. alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:46 pm

    I’ll take John Smoltz as a manager anyway over some of these guys getting interviews.
    Guy was a hell of a player, with a cockiness you can’t teach. Knows the game played on many championship team(like 10 straight division titles? ),good fit for the Giants that will never happen though.

  45. wilcojoe said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:46 pm

    Great job peacock!

  46. zumiee said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:48 pm

    Peacock’s got a great fastball tonight with good movement; he should have never gotten cute and thrown that slider to Utley which was the wild pitch.

  47. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:48 pm

    3 more. Telling in that The Dogs have used 6 pitchers and the Stros 2.

  48. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:50 pm

    Still love to see some ins runs.

  49. wilcojoe said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:51 pm

    I bring Peacock out for the 9th. They still have McHugh and Musgrove as long men in case Morton gets in trouble tomorrow. I don’t want to see Giles out there.

  50. alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 8:57 pm

    I would too WJ.
    Guys dealing, fuck all this analytical bs.
    This is fucking baseball, go with your Hinch, I mean Hunch
    Lol. This is why Roberts will fuck up this series which is great with me!! Fuck LA!!!

  51. alleykat69 said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    Peacock punches out Puig!!

  57. wilcojoe said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    Hats off to Hinch for sticking with Peacock for 4 innings.

  58. Flavor said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    with their 2 best pitchers coming up, at home, with a 2-1 league. This is looking real REAL good!!!

  61. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:36 pm

    Damn! Gotta love it. Hinch sticking with Peacock was a bit shocking but he was in a groove.

  62. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:38 pm

      • unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:48 pm

        He got T-ed up earlier, and someone from the Wiz grabbed him from behind in a headlock and tackled him. They were both thrown out. Hard to fault Green on that play.

    I guess Gurriel made a racist gesture about Darvish. Very stupid. Racism is so stupid, and a curse of the human species.

  65. unca_chuck said, on October 27, 2017 at 9:51 pm
