Arms Race

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 27, 2018

Man, if you like pitching MLB has the slate for you. Kluber, deGrom, Strasburg, Severino, Keuchel…and Manaea coming off his no hitter.

We get Ryu vs Holland and that’s fine with me.

Haven’t heard anything about Mac’s neck but I’m assuming this is something that is going to linger and screw with him….

Just try to get 2 and be done with LA for a while…..

Loo, did you ever discover what was under the tape?

    Goddamnit. Stop paying attention and they take the lead? ANd my DVR, which is set to tape all the Giants games, doesn’t? Actionless strikes (out) again. Fuck me twice.

    Another useless AB by Jackson.

      Why not have him bunt there? He’s up there swinging for the fences. Ridiculous.

      • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:32 pm

        Not your worst post ever…

      Pitching around Gorkys?

    Any idea why tonight I don’t have access to the Giants feed on the MLB Extra Innings package on Direct TV?
    Tomorrow? Yes. Sunday? Yes. Tonite? No. I don’t live in the Giants market either.

    • unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:36 pm

      This is on NBC locally. I think that’s why my DVR didn’t tape it. Stupid thing can’t look around for the game?

  5. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:35 pm

    Fuuuuuuuck. Woulda been nice to have a few more.

  6. sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:36 pm

    Fucking Taylor. Its bad enough they hit the jackpot on all these draft picks. They also had to find this guy on the scrap heap right before he transformed into Paul Freaking Blair?

  7. willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    If the situation were different and lead was bigger, this would be the guy Strick should throw at.

  8. willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    yeah asshole that’s been a strike all night.
    sit the F down.

  9. chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    What a fucking gift strike three…

  10. zumiee said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    Utley got yanked! Love it!

  11. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    The slider was a better pitch. But I’ll take it.

  12. zumiee said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:42 pm

    San Dawg, I just feel like Williamson has had years to get to know this ballpark.

    • sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:57 pm

      I hear you, but I think instinct kicks in when you’re tracking a fly ball. He’s been doing it his whole life and he’s not used to having a large mound of dirt one inch off the field of play. Its ridiculous.

  13. chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:43 pm

    Go with the same pitch….

  14. Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:44 pm

    Ballgame!

  15. chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:44 pm

    Nice save! Always good to get the first game of the series, but especially sweet against the fucking bums! Bam!

  16. willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:44 pm

    Hella night from pen after Holland left. Tremendous finish from Strick there Dodgers left holding bats and staring at ump.

    • zumiee said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:47 pm

  17. willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:49 pm

    Would anyone have thought with couple days left in April, Giants would have better record than Dodgers?

  18. Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:50 pm

    Bochy’s on Twitter now. I feel like tweeting to him, Great win. Why the fuck didn’t you have Jackson bunt in the 8th?

  19. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Hey Chuck, we had no shot at Roquan. My son thinks he’ll be a bust anyway. I wanted Nelson. We still didn’t get a pass rusher, but this wasn’t a very good draft for edge rushers.

  20. willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 11:14 pm

    6 saves for Strick now 4th best in NL. go figure.

    Mac (oaf seems unfair to me) was running full speed just to get to that foul ball as it’s tailing away. Even if you know the mound is there and the ground below you is gonna change, you can’t take your eye off ball to look for it or chop up your steps and slow down. Defy anyone to make that play on dead run without full concentration on the ball.

    • zumiee said, on April 27, 2018 at 11:54 pm

      I don’t think he has to make the play. Come in at a reasonable speed, look for the mound, and if he doesn’t make the play, live to fight another day. He’s up from AAA because of his bat. We don’t need him going full steam-train on that play. Barry Bonds never slammed into walls.

      • xoot said, on April 28, 2018 at 12:54 am

        toward the end of his career Barry Bonds’ knees were so fragile he couldn’t take any chances. He did, however, rather seriously injure his right knee when he bumped into a table in the clubhouse, circa 2004 or 2005.

    I’m very happy to see the POTD up there. All I did was report it. I thought it was at least semi-epic…
