Limp Bats

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 18, 2018

Total stud effort by Cueto last night. Apparently you need a little hitting to go along with stud pitching, eh?

Our hitters, who are not this bad, need to be accountable for this nonsense. Pence should voluntarily retire. But this isn’t all on him.

Again, I am really not worried about our hitting. We know it’s better than this. It’s just disappointing that we continue to lose games with pitching performances that are worthy of wins….

But this isn’t as dire as everyone is making it. If they Giants had won 2-1 last night we’d be singing their praises today. If you truly don’t think this team can score 2 runs, this revamped offense, then I can see why you’re giving up.

The offense is not this bad. It should be fine. The pitching has actually been better than expected and Smarge and Bum will return.

Hey, the good news is that Pence absolutely crushes Ray, he’s hitting .538 off him and I can’t stop laughing right now….

  9. Lurker John said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:00 pm

    Guns N’ Roses in the Seattle Coliseum damn near cost me my hearing.

  10. zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:00 pm

    Let’s face it- the Cow Palace had some kind of trippin’ acoustics.

  11. zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:04 pm

    I think a lot of the bands were mentioning had guys playing Gibson Les Pauls, an awesome electric guitar.

    • Lurker John said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:05 pm

      Indeed.

  12. alleykat69 said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:05 pm

  20. mrsprtdude said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:10 pm

    Who pitches? Strick stays?

  21. zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:10 pm

    Belt’s bat microphone-drop on HRs is pretty cool.

  22. chipower9 said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:11 pm

    Damn. Belt can do more than bunt. 😉

  23. Lurker John said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:11 pm

    The graphic said it was his first, but it’s his second. Thought so. Moon shot!

  24. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:11 pm

    James ain’t watching?

  25. Macdog said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:11 pm

  32. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:16 pm

    Fuck. I predicted a 7-5 loss. Looks like I’m gonna be close.

  33. alleykat69 said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:16 pm

    Jeez another double, and yes Gearrin you SUCK!! Just tired of that guy!!

  34. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:17 pm

    Where’s Pierce?

  35. Lurker John said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    5 doubles so far tonight for AZ.

    • zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:21 pm

      Some might have been HRs before the humidor.

  36. sandog said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    Did the Giants feed say anything about Buster and Gearrin jawing at each other a bit after that double down the line?

    • zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:21 pm

      We saw the visual.

      • zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:22 pm

        But no comments.

  37. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    no

  38. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    Did the AZ one?

    • sandog said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:23 pm

      Yeah. Gearrin was saying some animated stuff into his glove and Buster was going right back at him, looking pissed.

      • unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:31 pm

        Just rewound it. They didn’t look that mad.

  39. mrsprtdude said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:21 pm

    what about moranta ?? Bochy loves this Gherrin like they like Hundley! It would be funny if this game wasn’t important.

  40. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:21 pm

    Don;t fucking tease me Gearrin

  41. YogiBarrister (@Yogi47951368) said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:22 pm

    Turned off the game, tying run on third, Goldschmidt at bat. Walk the winning run? Yeah, I would.

  42. mrsprtdude said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:25 pm

    YES!!

  43. alleykat69 said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:25 pm

    I don’t believe it but it’s a W!!

  44. unca_chuck said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:25 pm

    Hey!!!! Eddie Munster becomes Cousin Itt. . . Jesus.

  45. chipower9 said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    Well, that sure as hell wasn’t pretty, but when you’re scuffling like our guys, ya take ‘em any way you can get ‘em. Whew….

  46. Lurker John said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    Torture all over again.

  47. xoot said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:27 pm

    the climb toward .500 begins!

    • zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:27 pm

  48. Macdog said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:28 pm

    That was Wilsonesque.

  49. willedav said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:29 pm

    vulture W for Strick. Gomez did one of those too didn’t he?
    Couple more bombs tonite too.

    Giants are 5-6 vs. LA and AZ 1-1 with Ms and 1-3 vs. @#$%& Padres.

    • Macdog said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:31 pm

      I think Strick got one last week too, also against AZ.

    • zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:31 pm

      Dodgers swept the Pads.

  50. sandog said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:31 pm

    Yikes. At least they got it done.
    On that Gearrin/Posey deal, it looked like Gearrin started the confrontation. AZ guys guessed he questioned Buster’s pitch selection. They didn’t exactly run into to each others arms after the last out either.

    • zumiee said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:35 pm

      Buster probably hates having to wait so long in the crouch for Gearrin to throw a pitch.

    • willedav said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:45 pm

      AZ announcers take on crowd numbers? Place looked half empty by time I got in (top 9th).
      What’s up with that? They’re in first place, no?

  51. snarkk said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:34 pm

    Friggin Belt.
    He could have hit that winning HR farther…

  52. willedav said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    Dodgers outscored the Pads30-10 in 3 games.
    Pads are 7-13…3-1 vs Giants 4-12 vs. everyone else. I still don’t get it.

  53. alleykat69 said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    You can thank Dyson for being a dumbshit and helping the Giants for the win,by not going on contact from 3rd base and with his speed ballgame,that’s a total brain fart that their 3 rd base coach was rhemming him a new one..

  54. blade3colorado said, on April 18, 2018 at 10:41 pm

    Amazing win. Touch and go at the end.

  55. snarkk said, on April 18, 2018 at 11:00 pm

    If I need a closer, I’m going with Tony Watson, not Strickland…

  56. mrsprtdude said, on April 18, 2018 at 11:03 pm

    I have stratton in my fantasy league. Damn Strickland! Good win. We will take it. Still hate the damn Padres. 27 yankees against us and suck SHIT vs Dodgers…

  57. mrsprtdude said, on April 18, 2018 at 11:04 pm

    bautista just signed. I guess we couldn’t use him with our killers on the bench:)

    • Macdog said, on April 18, 2018 at 11:12 pm

      And at 37 years old, he would’ve fit right in.

  58. djloo27 said, on April 19, 2018 at 4:45 am

    R.I.P. Bruno Sammartino…
