Boom!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 24, 2018

The most impressive thing about Mac is his power to the opposite field. It’s prodigious. This is how you win games in baseball today. It’s not about pining your hopes on guys niggling walks and stringing a couple of singles together. Bochy keeps sitting there with that dumb grin on his face after Mac crosses home plate like he doesn’t understand how runs can be scored this way….

Thankfully the Giants went out and got 3 men who can hit home runs (Longo, ‘Cutch and Mac) and they have a 4th, Belt, who hits them when he swings the bat. Posey, he’s good for 12-15 this year. That’s enough power to win in today’s game.

Stratton is the co-MVP of the season (along with Cueto). What he’s doing this year is remarkable and it makes me wonder this: Did he just take his time figuring it out in the minors or did the Giants fall ass backwards into this hitting on him just because they had no other options (like Blach I might add).

I’m not worrying about their record it should be significantly better than it is. It’s April, if we keep getting this type of pitching, get Bum back, AND keep yackin’ and jackin’ the ball out of the yard this is going to end up being a very entertaining year for Giants fans who haven’t jumped ship already….

    That POTD is still up?!? A. Hernandez’s strike zone has actually been ok so far tonight, yet he still manages to be arrogant and incompetent. Wlliiamson should have dropped the ball *after* hitting the mound to ensure everyone’s unambiguous sympathy. Another nice bomb!

      GAAAAH!

    Wow!. Could Mac actually still become an impact player?

    I think he wants to stay this time!

  6. willedav said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:09 pm

    Man, after all that he clears the 399 sign with ease.
    Giants hold on here he can make winner out of the Mountain.

    When does Crawfish hit the bricks? Jesus. He’s been persona non grata for a while now.

    Bring up the squirrel Ryan Howard.

    Gotta like Moronta . . . He even looks a little like Yasmiero

    • sandog said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:13 pm

      2022 I believe, for Crawdad’s exit.

    • unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:15 pm

      Yikies. That’s a whole lot of spoiled fish . . .

    • willedav said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:25 pm

      @$16 mil per
      gotta hope the D range doesn’t regress as he gets older

      • djloo27 said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:27 pm

        and fatter…

  8. sandog said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:12 pm

    NFL: Lester Hayes
    MLB: Reggie Smith
    Favorite Monkee: Peter Tork

    • unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:16 pm

      I’m with ya on Reggie till he got here. And Peter. Mickey Dolenz was overrated.

  9. Lurker John said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:12 pm

    Moronta has been a nice surprise.

  10. djloo27 said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:18 pm

    Visiting OF Sierra just navigated our “bullpen” like a mountain goat…

    • sandog said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:20 pm

      That was impressive. Of course, its a little easier when the ball is on ground already.

    • unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:21 pm

      Hah! I was thinking that, but it was a grounder.

  11. unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:20 pm

    From Mota to Casilla to Petit to hopefully Moronta, they seem to find these guys hiding in the weeds.

  12. djloo27 said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:21 pm

    McCutchen’s walk up song should be Golden Slumbers…

  13. unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:22 pm

    This guy can’t find the zone. Crush him.

  14. Lurker John said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:23 pm

    Posey hasn’t been crushing much of anything lately.

  15. sandog said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:24 pm

    Dyson and Strick to close this one out? What could possibly go wrong???

    • zumiee said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:32 pm

      Well…..

      • Lurker John said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:42 pm

        LOL

      • djloo27 said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:49 pm

        Despite the mishap, it was actually a picture perfect landing…

      • Lurker John said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:51 pm

        For Strick and the Hindenburg.

  16. willedav said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:33 pm

    wow tailor made GIDP. giants are fortunate R Zim isn’t hitting anything like he did last year and Rendon is on the DL. Nats seem kind of lifeless; they dropped 2 in a row to LA after beating Opie, right?

    • Macdog said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:34 pm

      Murphy, too.

      • willedav said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:44 pm

        yeah big loss obviously.

    • zumiee said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:35 pm

      Yeah, Scherzer shut out the Dodgers in that game.

  17. alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    Taylor sure looked like a puss on that swing..

  18. Lurker John said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    We’ll take that shit! 3 in a row!

  19. willedav said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    8 pitch inning! nicely done by set up guy and the closer.
    And the winning pitcher, Moronta.

    • zumiee said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:51 pm

      • alleykat69 said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:20 pm

        Williamson has a good Clint beard going..

  20. Lurker John said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:44 pm

    I love these briskly played games. Two and one half hours or thereabouts.

  21. Macdog said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:45 pm

    How ’bout that, no drama from Strick.

  22. Lurker John said, on April 24, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    Now if the Dubs can go ahead and finish off the Spurs…

  23. unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:03 pm

    Jesus. The Dubs are ice cold.

    • willedav said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:19 pm

      well, the LU that was out there had Igs, Green and Kevon 3 guys incapable of creating their own shot.
      and none of them (plus Durant) could handle Aldridge.
      Surprised Cook didn’t get little more run

  24. unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:05 pm

    Wow. Utah will kill us if we can’t finish this.

    • unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:09 pm

      WIthout Steph.

    • willedav said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:17 pm

      Pelicans next up man. The Brow Jrue and our old buddy Ian Clark.

  25. unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:09 pm

    Ginobili’s last play is a pass out of bounds to lose the game.

  26. unca_chuck said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:12 pm

    Well, that was a piece of cake. 19 boards for Draymond tonight.

  27. Macdog said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:18 pm

    Fish beat the Bums.

    • zumiee said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:23 pm

      You said it better. 🙂

  28. zumiee said, on April 24, 2018 at 10:22 pm

    Marlins beat the Dodgers.

  29. pawliekokonuts said, on April 24, 2018 at 11:16 pm

    Some major-league humor here tonight [humour, for the Blue Jays]

  30. pawliekokonuts said, on April 24, 2018 at 11:17 pm

    I thought Wliiamson broke his neck at first . . . I mean, third
