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?

    Parker basically ended his major league career by running into a wall last year. These guys need to be wise in how they play the outfield, especially at AT&T.

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:01 am

      Also because Parker (who sucks) can’t hit MLB pitching.

    • xoot said, on April 27, 2018 at 11:07 am

      Mac the Oaf needs special instruction and training for every phase of the game, apparently.

      • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 12:03 pm

        I hope the nickname “Mac the Oaf” sticks.
        It’s got a song and everything. Really like it…

      • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:03 pm

        And someone’s crumpled – in our bullpen,
        Could that someone be Mac the Oaf?

      • xoot said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:15 pm

        You nailed it

  2. willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:00 am

    idk, might be good time to catch LA. They aren’t hitting much, 11th NL in runs and HRs, 8th across board for OB Slg and OPS quite unlike last year.
    Seager has 1 bomb in 100 ABs, one more than Puig who is hitting .195 with an OPS of .499.
    Taylor is batting .228 with .269 OB at leadoff and Pederson is hitting .217.

    Still, their pitching is tough. Dunno how they lost 2 of 3 to Marlins; that’s embarrassing and could fire some payback. Don’t forget !@%& Pads come in right behind them. Pads are 3-1 vs. SF and 6-16 vs. everyone else.

  3. snarkk said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:23 am

    I wondered how long Mac could play without injury. Not long. The dude has been an injury machine over his career. Hopefully this is minor and does not F up his power trend. Last year he got hurt and disappeared the rest of the season…

  4. dirtnrocksnomo said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:04 am

    Agree that Williamson hasn’t stayed healthy but I haven’t seen anything beyond this latest issue being a stiff neck. Gotta hope he’s in the LU tonight because the alternatives aren’t going to provide much. Dude better hurry up and get back and keep hitting bombs or Bochy will break out the Pence love as soon as he can.

    • alleykat69 said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:33 am

      Sure don’t need the Pence bromance but with Boch it’s coming again yikes..

  5. Irish Kevin said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:36 am

    Going to the game tonight. My son bought these for my B’day. Gotta get my 2 Flapps down hat!!

    • zumiee said, on April 27, 2018 at 11:50 am

      Very cool! I dig the giveaway items, especially hats and caps.

  6. djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 11:49 am

    Big Flavor has very generously given me custody of the most notorious Splash/Flap artifact:
    The Scott McClain bat originally given to him by Twin.
    It feels like an honor to possess it as well as a moral obligation to see that someday it gets passed on to someone worthy. This is what Flavor is talking about in the main thread. The handle is heavily duct taped and I want to get some real bat tape and fix it up nice. I don’t know how badly cracked it is under there yet.

    • Flavor said, on April 27, 2018 at 12:08 pm

      i like that you’re going to fix it with real bat type. I half assed my way through ownership on it. Twin would be happy to know someone is finally giving it proper attention. 🙂
      Man, I’d give anything to be able to find that thread from the splash where I got in a huge fight with Twin and threatened to shove the bat up his ass. Not sure he ever got over that one.

      • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 12:20 pm

        I’m gonna make it look real good and hopefully usable (on someone’s skull). If you google “bat tape grip” you’ll be reminded of the potato chip aisle, but I like all the color choices that will look great on a black bat…

      • unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 1:10 pm

        gotta go orange

      • xoot said, on April 27, 2018 at 3:08 pm

        I think I remember that fight. That’s the late night he warned you not to come after him with the bat because he lived at the protected end of a country lane and he had a gun. iirc. the splash was very entertaining in those days.

  7. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 12:20 pm

    Ha ha! Shit I looked at some old stuff on my blog and Jesus, I forgot what a huge sactimonious asshoile he could be. This was was back in 2011 when everyone had to kneel at the greatness of Alex Smith.

    • alleykat69 said, on April 27, 2018 at 1:51 pm

      Yeah I gave Twin a hard time about rather having picked Aaron Rogers over Sir Alex he went ballistic calling me the usual dickwad with no knowledge of any sports at all..

  8. dirtnrocksnomo said, on April 27, 2018 at 12:36 pm

    The Fresh Prince is on target for a Summertime return. Suarez with 1 ER & 9K over 7IP, Slater with a bomb yesterday and hitting .358 in Sac, Duggar’s average quietly creeping up. No room for a nonperforming Pence.

    • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 1:53 pm

      I’m not expecting anything great from the recuperated Fresh Wince…

  9. Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:02 pm

    Shea tweeted yesterday: Reliever Will Smith needed seven pitches in a 1-2-3 eighth inning tonight in Sacramento. He has looked good in back-to-back games and is targeting a Tuesday return to Giants’ bullpen.

    • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:04 pm

      Mac can show him where it is…

    • snarkk said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:33 pm

      Osich will be heading back to Sac…

  10. snarkk said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:37 pm

    When Slater played last season, he proved a serviceable MLB outfielder with a bit of pop. I’ll take him anytime over Pence. Both he and Duggar are heating up at the plate, so I see no reason heading into month 2 of the season to bing Pence’s thumb back over either one of these guys. I’d sub both in for blanco and Gorkys…

  11. snarkk said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Is Parker still out of baseball?…

    • sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:44 pm

      I think so. I checked online about a week ago. I hope someone throws him a bone as I kind of like that knucklehead. He should just report to SacTown. It would only be a matter of time before he’d get another shot with the Giants as bare as our OF cupboard is.

  12. snarkk said, on April 27, 2018 at 2:43 pm

    Down here in Phoenix, the local sports radio (which is way worse than KNBR, btw) is basically laughing at how the Cards gave up little to the Raiders to swap first round picks so the Cards could pick up a possible franchise QB in Rosen. Current 3rd and 5th round picks. Is Raider nation down with how much they gained in return?…

    • Flavor said, on April 27, 2018 at 4:16 pm

      the Raiders are being universally panned for how they got hoodwinked on that deal. I don’t really know any Raider fans but the one who can read should probably be pretty pissed off right now or at least before the 12 pack they’re gonna drink tonight kicks in

  14. Flavor said, on April 27, 2018 at 4:20 pm

    I don’t remember much about the bat-up-ass threat other than I was pretty hammered when I wrote it and Twin was taken aback that I would threaten such a thing, especially considering it was a gift from him. Of course, he was right about all of that, I was way out of line that night

    • chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:50 pm

    Keuchel had retired 13 straight A’s til M Chapman hit a rocket out the yard. Fosse and Kuiper (the other one) arguing over whether Keuchel gets Darvish type deal.

  18. zumiee said, on April 27, 2018 at 6:46 pm

    You kind of just have to shake your head that it took Williamson less than a week to slam into a wall and get injured.

    • Flavor said, on April 27, 2018 at 6:58 pm

      meanwhile guys like Austin Jackson saunter around without incurring even a scratch…

    • unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:16 pm

      Shit, look at Byrnsie. His whole deal was throwing himself into walls and railings and shit. Rowand, Parker, mac under the knife. Maybe it’s a white thing.

  19. djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:13 pm

    Wonder how ticket sales are for this series…

    • chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:48 pm

      Friend who I went to opening day with had purchased tix for the original game tonight, club level for a very good price. When they announced the DH, he scored tix for that game at a good price, too.

  20. Pasalon said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    Why isn’t that little boy Joc in tonight’s lineup?

    • Flavor said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:23 pm

      because he’s left handed Pa. And we are throwing a left hander tonight. Joc can barely hit right handers.

  21. Flavor said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:26 pm

    • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:35 pm

      Two criticisms.

      1) The game should be in the street (gutter to us) or the schoolyard.
      2) The laundry hanging is extremely exaggerated in height and quantity.

      • Flavor said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:36 pm

        lol @ number 2

      • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:38 pm

        3) No TV antennas on the roof.

      • Flavor said, on April 27, 2018 at 7:42 pm

  36. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:03 pm

    Chuck, I like the fact we got a tackle since T Brown didn’t fit the zone blocking scheme Shanny runs. Which is why we got that RB from Minnesota, McKinnon. He’s a fast outside runner that can catch passes in the flat, and Brown doesn’t cut it as a mobile tackle who can get downfield, I get what they are doing but I don’t know any of these 3rd round guys. The one thing is, they are fast. We are getting a lot quicker as a team. And another WR. Sure, I’m behind that, as long as it isn’t a 1st round bust a la AJ Jenkins.

    • chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:10 pm

      Yeah, I get all of that and agree, but I really wanted Roquan. I think he has potential to be a “Willis-type” bad ass and leader. But i’m good with their direction. Team is actually starting to show some positive direction with little to no bullshit from Jed and family. I’m optimistic about this year.

  37. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:04 pm

    And protection for Jimmy G is important.

  38. djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:05 pm

    I’m about ready to DFA McCutchen…

  39. djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:08 pm

    The Amy G of the Dodgers (didn’t catch her name) on the upcoming schedule:
    “2 more games here – 3 if you count the doubleheader”

  40. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:08 pm

    Doesn’t take long for that walk to hurt.

  41. sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:10 pm

    I can’t believe that nobody on here but me is calling out the Giants brass for this Williamson injury. Usually, many of you pounce on any opportunity to call out Bear and company for putting profits over the product on the feld. Mac didn’t get hurt because he is a clumsy oaf, he got hurt because of our bullshit “jewel” of a ballpark. Even the shill Krukow admits he could have easily broken his neck. Is that what it’s gonna take to get them to shitcan the beer garden and put in a MLB caliber bullpen?

    • chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:23 pm

      With a bit of good planning, I think there is room for a similar bar right behind the current garden. Although I would miss sitting along the baselines and watching the BP warm up (or starter before the game), but from a practical standpoint, they maybe should be moved off the field.

    • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:27 pm

      I thought he hurt his ankle when it happened. The answer to your last question is yes.
      Just like the kids in the outfield at the HR Derby. When Stanton kills one, that’ll be the end of it…

  42. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:11 pm

    bullpen phone – ringing

  43. Lurker John said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:11 pm

    You can see why Holland hasn’t had a ton of success in his career. All over the zone, pitching behind in the count, not finishing guys off in 2-strike counts.

  44. Lurker John said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    Fucking Holland is imploding. This has all the makings of a huge inning.

  45. chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    Holland just isn’t fucking getting it for me. I know, 5th starter and all that, but come on…

  46. djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    Holland flinches on almost every batted ball like he thinks it’s gonna hit him.
    I think he’s afraid to throw strikes…

  47. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:14 pm

    The funny thing is, the architects that designed the stadium forgot about the bullpens so they didn’t design anywhere for them. It was an afterthought. That’s the story I heard anyway. A guy i used to work with was an electrician on the stadium project back in ’99.

    Oh fuck this. He woulda scored. On the hundreds of thousands of times this has happened. Don’t act like this is something new.

  48. Lurker John said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    That jackass who interfered with the live ball should be shown the way to Willie Mays Plaza.

        I hate that shit. You know damn well when you sit down there you’re not supposed to interfere with balls in play. Guy’s an idiot.

  49. Lurker John said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:22 pm

    I thought it was an acreage issue.

    • Lurker John said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:25 pm

      That the park footprint was restricted by the acreage, so they had to put the mound on the field. I agree with Sandog, it’s stupid. Get them the hell off the field of play, whatever it takes.

    • xoot said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:38 pm

    Maybe fat Ryu tired himself out…

  52. Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:42 pm

    Enough of Holland. Looks like Suarez is going to pitch Tuesday vs. the Pads, if he does well enough, he should stay as the fifth starter.

    • chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:45 pm

      Agree, Mac. Holland if killing me..Small sample on Suarez, but I like what i’ve Seen, so far.

      • Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 8:49 pm

        Yeah, although I guess Holland will have to pitch the Wednesday game vs. Pads.

  60. djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:08 pm

    Fun fact (sorta)
    In his last 2 ML seasons, Moises Alou batted .341 & .347.
    I wonder if that’s some kind of record, even if the last season was only 49 AB.
    I don’t even remember him being on the team he did it with…

    • sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:10 pm

      That fact is totally fun Loo. Keep ’em coming.

      • sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:15 pm

        Just looked at his stats. Didn’t remember that last team either—or that he hit over .300 both years for us. Or that he was a lifetime .300 hitter.
        I’m not nearly as sensitive to player body language as some people on here (Looking at you Flav), but Moises looked to me like he didn’t much give a crap when played for the Giants and that used to bug me.

    • Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:11 pm

      Wasn’t he on the Mets after the Giants?

      • chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:14 pm

        I think so…think that is where he finished his career. He always hit commando…no gloves.

    • Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:16 pm

      Ty Cobb hit .357 and .323 his last two seasons, in a lot more than 49 ABs the last season.

      • sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:20 pm

        He also had a pretty swank home on the banks of Lake Tahoe ala Michael Corleone.

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

        You’re gonna pull Ty Cobb out on me for this?

      • Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:40 pm

        Tony Gwynn also hit in the .320s his last two seasons, ha ha.

  61. djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:31 pm

  64. willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:44 pm

    OK see there’s my argument. that goes to right side, Belt’s at 3b. Wasn’t a good decision by him, but Jackson’s job is hit the ball other way ground or air.

    • willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 9:46 pm

      Loo is right tho, Belt is too slow to do that. He should have froze and held.

    Cingrani and Baez were the ones that heimliched the first game LA lost to Marlins. And there it goes! Specs ties it up.
    So how does Roberts feel? Game tying rbis when your reliever can’t get out Gorks and Specs.

    dang/ Posey let 2 hanging changes go by and swung at that one.

    Jazz trying to hang on up 3 with 20 seconds left. Love listening to Hubie Brown.

    Do the Giants ever get Farmer out?

  73. willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:11 pm

    YES! Jazz hold on wild finish non call.

    I saw the New Orleans Jazz play Warriors, with Pistol Pete Truck robinson as a rookie and Stanford big man Rich Kelley.

    • sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:14 pm

      I did too! With my dad and brother in Oakland. I think maybe even James Hardy from USF was with them at that time as well.

      • willedav said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:35 pm

        maybe one year later than game I saw but yeah Hardy did play for them. Truck got 20 and lit up R Barry Jazz won night I went. Joe C. Meriweather too.

      • sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 11:03 pm

        Sounds right. I think Barry might have No longer been a Warrior at my game. Rich Kelley was there for sure. I remember my brother talking about him being a Stanford guy.
        You think Rich Kelley has been to the goose? I’m gonna say yes, many times.

      Donovan Mitchell is scary good.

      • sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:28 pm

        I watched him play a pretty good amount in college and in no way did I see this kind of success in the NBA happening for him.

    Happy to hear the infamous Scott McClain bat is still alive and well and now in Loo’s worthy hands. That was a brutal but wonderfully entertaining event, way back then. One of my favorite books is Accordion Crimes, by Annie Proulx, a neat story with historical relevance as it spans 100 years and traces the life and eventual demise of an old hand-crafted accordion as it passes from person to person and hence from life event to life event. Every Flapper that holds that bat has his own stories, to be sure….

    This AB seems long as hell. Kind of adds perspective to Belt’s 21 gun salute…

    • djloo27 said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:23 pm

      So’s this fuckin’ game…

  76. chipower9 said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    Can of corn…whew!

  77. unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:29 pm

    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.

  78. Macdog said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:29 pm

    Another useless AB by Jackson.

    • zumiee said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:31 pm

      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…

      • zumiee said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    • unca_chuck said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:33 pm

      Pitching around Gorkys?

  79. sandog said, on April 27, 2018 at 10:34 pm

    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?

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

    Fuuuuuuuck. Woulda been nice to have a few more.

  81. 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?

  82. 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.

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

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

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

    What a fucking gift strike three…

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

    Utley got yanked! Love it!

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

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

  87. 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.

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

    Go with the same pitch….

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

    Ballgame!

  90. 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!

  91. 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

  92. 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?

  93. 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?

  94. 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.

  95. 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.

  96. djloo27 said, on April 28, 2018 at 6:07 am

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