Happy Holidays To ALL!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on December 23, 2017

Flappers, I am taking a hiatus for a few weeks. I’ll be out of the country for part of that and it just won’t be convenient to try to blog or change the threads. So man the ship, keep her sea worthy, weather any storms and watch out for pirates. Hopefully when I get back (January 9th) we will have assembled a team that can sail off to glory once again.

Steady as she goes mateys, steady as she goes…..

    Wade Davis signed with the Rockies. Nice signing for them. The NL West is very tough.

      Passan tweet: Among Wade Davis, Jake McGee and Bryan Shaw, the Rockies now have guaranteed $106M to relief pitchers this winter. Add in Mike Dunn and Adam Ottavino, and they may have the most expensive bullpen in baseball history — upward of $50M this season.

    Cincy f*cked us when we traded Adam Duvall for POS pitcher, Mike Leake in 2015 for our stretch run and he face planted. Meanwhile, over the past two seasons, Duvall powered his way into the starting lineup. During this time he has smashed 64 home runs while driving in a total of 202.

    Now Booby, et.al., are about to bend over once again, when Cincy plucks our #1 rated prospect, Heliot Ramos for the hitless wonder, Billy Hamilton . . . At least that’s what the rumor mill is spewing out. Oh joy!

    Booby’s intellect is rivaled only by garden tools.

      I can’t see that one going down, Blade.
      I bet even Flavor wouldn’t support that deal…

    And he’s not even the sharpest tool in the shed.

    How’s this for a paranoid thought:
    One of the Giant’s underlying reasons for obtaining Longoria was to have a convenient excuse to stay out of next year’s Manny Machado sweepstakes…

      Whether sooner or later, he’s going to the Yanks.

        I don’t think it’s a given, Mac, although you are usually right. Not so sure they want to spend a fortune on yet another righty bat and I don’t know where they’re at with the luxury tax…

      As conspiracy theories go, I would rate it fairly accurate, just behind Trump and the Russian hookers urinating on the bed Obama slept in while at a Moscow hotel.

    Machado would be nice get for SF but doubt it happens. He could play SS and they could work on unloading Crawford who could rake in Camden Yards.
    I like Longo signing myself. I think he has few good years left and will be grateful not to have to be face of franchise and play in a ml yard that’s mostly full.

    Man Pac 12 taking a beating in college football bowl games.

    Kinda funny, but that first Reds series vs. Giants Hamilton went ape shit and the Reds clobbered them. He was on base a lot and running wild and scoring runs. Unfortunately, as Brisbee pointed out, his numbers vs. everyone else sucked big time, less than .600 OPS. He’s just not much of a hitter.

    And remember guys hitting behind him were Cozart and his .900 OPS, Joey Votto, who is just one of best hitters on planet with over 1.000 OPS, and Duvall, who loves that bandbox yard. Scooter Gennett hit 27 HRs for them and they still lost 94 games.

    Warriors have 100 on Memphis (which has 87 of their own) with 4:36 left…in 3rd Q.

    Here’s to a Happy Giants New Year in 2018 (because it can’t possibly be worse than 2017?).

    Happy New Year Flappers! See you in about a week!

  10. zumiee said, on January 1, 2018 at 8:43 am

    Giants pitchers and catchers report in about 44 days. The Giants still need to make some roster transactions, obviously. Here’s hoping they’ve got some nice surprises coming for us.

    Happy 2018 all!

    Happy New Years Flappers 🎉🍾🍺🥃🍷🍻
    To a handful of NFL coaches getting the axe maybe not as much..

    Oklahoma has never played Georgia in football before? How is that possible?

    Frohe Neues Jahr Grusse aus Munchen zu allem Flappers!!!…
