Bad Night

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 17, 2018

Man, that turned quick. We went from a “Perfect Night” with the Dubs rolling and the Giants winning to…I don’t know what that was. Just like I’m still processing that video I posted of the “little incident down at the Starbucks.”

Colorado isn’t hitting. They are leading the NL in bombs (always expected) but they’re 10th in team OPS. That’s wild for a team that gets to play half its games in Nepal.

So as long as Smarge can keep his pitches from leaking right down Broadway we should be ok tonight.

Right?

Question posed on Tolbert’s KNBR show yesterday: Would you rather have a player hit a homerun every single game (and strike out in his other 3 at bats) or would you rather have a player go 4 for 4 with 4 singles every single game? Explain your answer. And don’t ask me any questions about the question, that’s the only info you have to make your choice.

Looking forward to your responses on this one…..

Finally, this…..

    I guess this is an encouraging start for Shark.

    Dianne Feinstein turns 85 next month and she’s running for re-election. I think we really need term limits in Congress. Just sayin.’

    • Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:19 pm

      Absolutely. Problem is, they’re the ones who’d have to vote it in. Never going to happen.

    • sandog said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:20 pm

      That’s so funny. I was considering posting something wondering how old she is. My goodness.

      • zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:23 pm

        Yay, California will have a 90 year old Senator in 5 years.

    Damm Longo that was a bush league throw to 1st.Absoutley no excuse for that lame throw.,

    • blade3colorado said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:38 pm

      8 errors for the season . . .One thing’s for certain – he’s not winning a gold glove this season (especially with Arenado in the same league),

  5. zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:30 pm

    Arenado dogs it to firstbase and gets on base anyway.

  6. zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    Gavin Newsome has Pat Riley’s hair.

    KKKKutch.

      Bingo

    Anyone know how old Pelosi is? Another one that has to go. Repubtards love having her as the face of the Dems.

    • Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:43 pm

      Wow, who knew I was a Repubtard. Learn something every day.

      • blade3colorado said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:46 pm

        Present company excepted LJ. 🙂

      • zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:47 pm

        The GOP has changed a lot over the years. I’m not even sure what a Republican is anymore.
        Well, I’m not real sure what a Democrat is these days either, I guess.
        I’m not feeling hugely optimistic about our nation and planet lately.

    • zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:43 pm

      She’s a mere 78.

    Two deep drives from Buster tonight in the spacious ballpark.

    • Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:44 pm

      Buster is now the proud owner of warning track power.

      • blade3colorado said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:45 pm

        Read my mind LJ.

      • sandog said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:45 pm

        I don’t know man. That ball goes out of a LOT of parks imo.

      • Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:05 pm

        Well, he hasn’t homered in a month, so I’m not super convinced he’s going to hit too many more this season.

  10. blade3colorado said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:45 pm

    Buster with warning track power. lulz

    A quick Google search shows one guy (Andrelton Simmons) with four singles in a game this year, his team lost in extra innings.
    Yesterday, Belt had one HR and four unproductive outs. Be happy if the tie is broken with a walk off run now.

  12. blade3colorado said, on May 17, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    Zum, I’m at the point where I would welcome Klaatu and this metal dude to do a coup of the USA.

    • zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:01 pm

      I really want politicians in racer suits with logos of all the companies that made large campaign donations.

  13. Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:03 pm

    Who’s ready for some Duggar in CF?

    • zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:10 pm

      Me!

  14. Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:06 pm

    Actionless doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence at the plate.

  15. unca_chuck said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:07 pm

    Someone needs to save us from ourselves.

    I have no faith in either party. The Dems are Content to sit on the sidelines while the Repblcans dismantle the rule of law. They scream fiscal responsibility while they spend trillions. They piss and moan about the 2nd amendment while Trump slowly gets rid of the 1st. And 4th.

  16. zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:13 pm

    Man, there was some infield shift wackiness that inning.

  17. Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:14 pm

    It’s real easy after all these years to take Crawfish for granted, but the guy is probably the best defensive SS in SF Giants history. He makes tough plays look easy.

  18. djloo27 said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:14 pm

    That play was harder than it looked. Rockie announcers made nothing of it…

  19. djloo27 said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:17 pm

    We nailed it, LJ!

    • Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:20 pm

      And in the same minute!

  20. Lurker John said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    Leading the ML in DP’s boys!

  21. zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:28 pm

    Klay is into it.

      Good to see him there in a Giants cap. Last time I saw him there it was in an LA cap, but his brother was playing for them at the time. Now he just needs to light it up on Sunday.

  22. unca_chuck said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:30 pm

    Looking like a Stick crowd.

    Clutch needs to get off the Schneid.

  23. Macdog said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:31 pm

    Keep hitting ’em to #35.

  24. unca_chuck said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    Nice hitting by Belt.

  25. djloo27 said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    Anybody available to run for Belt?

  26. unca_chuck said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    End this!

  27. zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:48 pm

    And the seagulls arrive….

    • zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:50 pm

  28. djloo27 said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:52 pm

    I see they play “everybody clap your hands” on the PA to scare them off the field…

    • zumiee said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:54 pm

      They ought to play “everybody throw away your trash.”

  29. blade3colorado said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Yeah, normal night Kruk. I’ve seen 4 seagulls fly past the pitcher in the time you took to say that sentence.

  30. snarkk said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:54 pm

    Friggin Belt.
    If he’d have hit 4 singles instead of that tying HR, the Giants would have won already…

  31. Macdog said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:54 pm

    And a long game just got longer.

  32. unca_chuck said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:59 pm

    Bbbbbb.

  33. djloo27 said, on May 17, 2018 at 10:59 pm

    What was the point of getting ahead of Arenado, and then basically walking him intentionally?

  34. djloo27 said, on May 17, 2018 at 11:01 pm

    Motherfucker…

  35. unca_chuck said, on May 17, 2018 at 11:02 pm

    Cant walk the fucking bases loaded. Fuckng 1-2 count though.

  36. unca_chuck said, on May 17, 2018 at 11:04 pm

    Derp!

  37. snarkk said, on May 17, 2018 at 11:05 pm

    Maybe Panda should take Gearrin’s or Johnson’s spot in the Pen…

  38. djloo27 said, on May 17, 2018 at 11:12 pm

    Make up call…

  39. mrsprtdude said, on May 17, 2018 at 11:28 pm

    Shit!

  40. mrsprtdude said, on May 17, 2018 at 11:29 pm

    @ Craig..4/4 every day of the week. 4 hits will generate rallys. Homers are often one and done..
