Blunder

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on November 1, 2017

Unless Hinch thought Verlander was done it was a huge mistake to take him out of the game. Either that, or he was banking on a Gattis bomb (unlikely). Once Reddick walked to lead off the top of the 7th the importance of getting the tying run into scoring position became critical. Bunt him over. Verlander could have easily accomplished this and stayed in the game. As it was, Gattis did worse than what Verlander could have done by giving himself up with a bunt out.

I’m tired of watching games get shitily managed. And now it looks like the one decent chance the Astros had of winning this thing is gone.

“Lance McCullers” looks and sounds a lot like “Livan Hernandez” if you squint and slur your words.

We’re fucked.

    One word that is epic perfect for what I’m feeling for Doghairs and their fans right now:

    “Schadenfreude”….

    What a bad-ass performance by Morton.

    Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m so happy to be wrong!!!!!!!!
    Astros, you rock!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:02 pm

    Hah!!!!!! I loved it when Joefuck said “Kershw pitched great. Houston has used 5 pitchers.”

    I’m thinking, gee. What’s the score, Joe?

  15. snarkk said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:03 pm

    Happy for Houston fans and that town, where I spent 3+ years of my life.
    This has to feel great with the BS they’ve been through with the hurricane…

  17. snarkk said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:04 pm

    Told you guys this morning I was optimistic. Houston offense is damn good, and Darvish didn’t have super history against them.

    Giants could use two Springers…

    • Lurker John said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:05 pm

      I’d settle for one!

      • snarkk said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:14 pm

        Maybe he has a brother?…

  18. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:05 pm

    Woulda been awesome for GHou to win this at home, but it has to hurt like a MOFO for the Dog fans to see the Astros celebrating on their field.

    Hah!!!

  19. snarkk said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:08 pm

    This is WAAAAAY better than if LA had been bounced in the NLDS !
    Up to the very edge of a WS win, and Sorry, Chumps:

  20. Lurker John said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:08 pm

    Long drive home for the Doghair fans. Weren’t they crowned the greatest team ever in July or August? NOT THIS YEAR BOYS!

  21. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    Houston be like . . .

  22. wilcojoe said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    So fucking awesome!!!

  23. zumiee said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    So many things went right for the Dodgers this year, they caught a zillion breaks and they still couldn’t win it.

  24. sandog said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:10 pm

    Did not see this coming. I was with Zum on this. Super impressed with Houston for pulling this off against a great team.

  25. snarkk said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:10 pm

    Hey, no biggie Doghair fans.
    Just wait another 29 years…

  26. gianthead said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:11 pm

    What a wonderfully fantastic humiliating way for the Fodgers to lose…

  27. zumiee said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:14 pm

    Yeah, that’s what I was doing! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    LA: Still kein in 29 !

    SF: 3 in 5, Baby !…

  29. Lurker John said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:16 pm

    Should be some good reading in the LA Times the next couple of days.

    • willedav said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:24 pm

      yeah. wonder if there will be any casualties or fallout roster/FO wise.

  30. snarkk said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:17 pm

    The Dodger blogs will be EPIC tonight !
    They’ll have to publish the numbers for the suicide prevention hotlines !…

  31. gianthead said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:24 pm

    San Dog…think you need to go Do Wah Diddy Diddy for your tesm building exercise. The start cant be beat and I still think it should replace the National Anthem…

    was that a taco bell commercial insert that flashed up there, during the Correa marriage proposal? Free tacos when? if what?

    The bums spent $250 million to try to win, and they drafted some good players, too. And yet they failed this year. That’s very pleasing. And the Astros built a great team, draft by draft, FA by FA. They’re a delight. The Giants, unfortunately, don’t seem able to imitate either model.

    Team moves this winter may tell a lot.

  35. zumiee said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:36 pm

    Another Dodger fan:

    Guys that were our foundation all year (Turner, Puig, Bellinger) just vanished in the most important series of the season. Hat tip to the Astros, because if they weren’t playing us I’d probably be rooting for them.
    But the stark reality that we may not be back here for a while hurts real bad. I understand all you can ask of a team is to get to the playoffs and see what happens, but I’m getting tired of NLDS and NLCS being our consolation prizes.

    Hell no, when it comes to Chavez Latrine — now aka the Pain in the Drain….

  37. zumiee said, on November 1, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    It’s amazing how the Giants can win the WS the three times they make the playoffs, whereas we can’t win a WS despite making the playoffs 7/10 years. Fuck them.

    And another:

    Couldn’t Watch It
    ….watched about one out of the 6th inning. I don’t know—after Game 2, I just kind of sensed we weren’t up to the task. Great, exciting series, but there was never a doubt in my mind how it was going to end, and after 28 years, I guess I just wasn’t going to torture myself. Hopefully after coming thiiiiiiisss close, we’ll go the final step next year. Next year. That stuff gets old, but it’s the only thing we’ll ever have. Always seems like we just lack something. Hard to understand how such a powerful offense and tight bullpen just….went away. This one will hurt forever.

    I feel heartbroken.
    I’m irrationally angry at Yu, but man did almost the entire offense fall dead at the wrong moment.

    Oh, well.
    Helluva World Series to end the season.
    Congrats to Houston, they finally won a WS.
    The Giants waited 1958 to 2010 = 52 years.
    Stros were an expansion team in 1962, wait till 2017 = 55 years…

  44. blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2017 at 10:49 pm

    Almost feels like the Giants won the World Series . . . Maybe not, but it definitely takes some of the sting away from this putrid season – seeing the Bums go meekly into the night.

    • blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2017 at 11:24 pm

      LA needs to get something straight . . . I’ve read a couple of columns from the LA Times and the consensus seems to be that this WS loss is on Darvish. WRONG.

      Two immediate reasons come to mind: 1. Kershaw’s epic fail in game 5; and, 2. LA’s game 7 “Silence Of The Bats.”

      The only reason why Opie isn’t taking more heat is because of his contract. He’ll be in LA for quite a while. Conversely, Darvish is a rental (free agent next season). Kershaw’s the goat . . . and I don’t mean Greatest Of All Time.

  45. Macdog said, on November 1, 2017 at 11:29 pm

    A little late here having been on the road in what’s becoming something of a tradition during a World Series Game 7, but . . .

    HELLLLLLLLLLLL YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Five straight years of Dodgers chokes, and this one tops ’em all! What’d they used to say in Brooklyn, Wait ’til next year? Hahahahaha.

  46. snarkk said, on November 1, 2017 at 11:33 pm

    Giants new batting coach hired.
    Astros connection.
    “The Giants have hired San Francisco native Alonzo Powell, the Astros’ assistant hitting coach, as their hitting coach to replace new bench coach Hensley Meulens, The Chronicle confirmed Wednesday night.”…

    • blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2017 at 11:40 pm

      Glad to see new blood in the coaching department, but this will have almost zero effect on the field.

      • snarkk said, on November 1, 2017 at 11:49 pm

        Agreed, but can’t hurt…

      • blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2017 at 11:54 pm

        True. See what’s what about moving dead weight (Pence, Span . . . although Pence did come alive a bit in September).

        Also, they need to move on from the Panda experiment.Can his ass in the 1st or 2nd week of Spring Training.

  47. mrsprtdude said, on November 1, 2017 at 11:47 pm

    This is on Kershaw. Can’t be an ACE, get a 4 run led. Chunk it. Get a 3 run lead back and chunk it again. Love it, but CK has to own this one!

    The Roooster should get on here and talk it out a little. Like Flavor said, for a Dodger fan the Roooster is about as good as it gets. I don’t think he would be tortured by anyone. We got it out of our systems last night. It’s back to cereal, music and our beloved Dubs…

    • Flavor said, on November 2, 2017 at 5:05 am

      “cereal, music, and our beloved Dubs.” Hello Winter, my old friend. I’ll pop a new thread up in a few minutes.
