His Name Is Will Smith

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 30, 2018

…and you shall refer to him as such with a more formal “Mr. Smith” followed by an offer to get him juice or a snack should he request it.

It took that dude a while to earn his name back but in times like these, so dire in the 9th with nobody reliable to turn to, I have suspended calling him That Fucking Lefty Reliever until further notice…

I’d also like to take a moment to honor the fabulous work they’re doing down on The Farm churning out mlb talent ready to contribute to SF Giant wins. Austin Slater played like a man last night.  A brilliant Stanford mind like Slater’s might scoff at the stats I’m about to drop on you claiming small sample size, but MINAJ and UnderPants would have to combine their OPS (.489 +.591 = .1080) in order to surpass where Austin The Great stands today (.974, leading the team).

Baby Pudge keeps the ship afloat tonight against that neverwas, Shelby Miller.

    Giants rolling! Blach may have found his niche. He’s a strike-throwing machine out there.

    That strike three change to Goldy was nasty.

    I don’t see any baseball reason for Samardzxxx to kick anybody out of this rotation…

    • djloo27 said, on June 30, 2018 at 9:44 pm

      There is no good reason.
      Just 50 million stupid ones…

    How about $40M a year for the 33 year old Chris Paul?

    I’m telling you guys.Gearrin’s getting a crumb I saw him warming up in the pen again..7-0 not sure enough still ! For the Rain Delay!!

    Arizona seems to have a pleasant old school organist.
    A little something for their geezer fans, I suppose…

    “Just throw strikes.” When I was a Little League pitcher, that’s what my manager always told me. This game, we’ve witnessed some good strike-throwing. It’s so key.

    • Lurker John said, on June 30, 2018 at 9:58 pm

      Lot of first-pitch strikes from Rodriguez tonight.

  8. unca_chuck said, on June 30, 2018 at 9:55 pm

    How many betters before the shutout is lost. The o/u is 2.5.

    I want that Giants flag!

  10. Lurker John said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:01 pm

    Another series win, boys! Break out the brooms!

  11. willedav said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:02 pm

    man DBax even make Gearrin look good.

  12. xoot said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:03 pm

    funny interlude there as Kruk and Kuip stumbled around trying to decipher a simple tweet from Keith Olbermann.
    Gearrin gets paid a helluva lot per pitch these days

  13. Macdog said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:03 pm

    I guess they didn’t need Slater tonight.

  14. alleykat69 said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:04 pm

      A boy and his rat…

  17. snarkk said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:11 pm

    18-10 finish for June.
    First above-.500 month in exactly two seasons…

  18. alleykat69 said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:15 pm

    Yeah usually June is their swoon month, not this year..

  19. willedav said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:16 pm

    There is no way they are demoting Smrdz off to the pen so he can pitch an inning at a time. The rehab starts were for the sole purpose of building up the pitch count so he can start, as long he recovers and feels OK afterward.

    Until he pitches himself out of it he’s an SP and Giants will adjust rotation around him and Bum.

    • alleykat69 said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:22 pm

      Yeah it’s the same old song and dance 💃🏻 coming up with Smardles soon .Know he won’t lose his gig, but neither should Rodriguez &Suarez if they continue to get big league hitters out..,

  20. alleykat69 said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:25 pm

    Jesús Bochy needs even a larger cap 🧢 maybe a 10 he’s got red marks all over his scalp…

  21. zumiee said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    This is the Giants flag that fan had.
    Very cool.

    • djloo27 said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:29 pm

      It’s great but 2 stripes short…

  22. willedav said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:34 pm

    Hanson went 3-15 playing all 4 games in home series vs. SD. Hit the 2 doubles in 9-8 L to Rox, since then 0-9 in AZ and 5 for his last 34 with 1 BB. Didn’t need him tonite. did like that bunt tho, good idea just hit it too hard.

  23. snarkk said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    OK, Cueto and Smardzxxx are coming up soon.
    They’re going to take two spots from these 4:
    Stratton, Suarez, Rodriguez, Holland.
    I think Stratton goes back to Sac.
    Gearrin gets DFA’d, and Rodgriguez goes to the Pen.
    Suarez and Holland stay in the rotation…

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:49 pm

      That all sounds likely, but I’d prefer to keep Pudge Jr. in the rotation, let Holland pitch long relief, unless that’s too many lefties in the ‘pen….

  24. unca_chuck said, on June 30, 2018 at 10:46 pm

    I think it’s Southbound Suarez and PudgeJr that stick. Holly can be the long guy.
