He’s a Bum

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 22, 2018

At this point, even if the Giants wanted to trade Bumgarner, even if they sold a team mostly on trading for his post season mystique, there’s no way they get an offer that would make any sense. Bum has nearly 1600 innings on that 28 year old arm and that’s even with sitting out most of the last 2 seasons. It’s entirely possible we are just seeing him in decline (or worse, just about to snap off an injury).

I just pray we play out the next season without giving him a new deal. It would be disastrous to sign him to another contract….

The day we’ve all been waiting for is here! Win today and we tie the series and you know what a tie means>>>>> it means we fucking win baby, hell yeah! I want that trophy more than anything I’ve ever wanted in my life and of course this .500 team is setting it up to take it down with a .500 record in the series…..

    Agree on Bum. Was hoping he would start stringing together some good starts so that he would have some decent value.

    Dude had NO command yesterday and couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn. Take away the six BBs, and it has the makings of a pretty damned good start.

    I still cannot believe the dumb ass method they came up with in determining who wins the damned trophy in a tie series, but what the fuck ever…just win today and bring that bitch home…

    still blows my mind that there are people in the world who take the time to make shit like this

      I once spent a whole summer building a replica of Freddie’s Nightmare house out of popsicle sticks.

        Let’s see it.

        oh hell yes email me that

      • chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 9:57 am

        I gotta see that, too!

    Anyone watching the British Open? Tiger Woods is tied for the lead.

    • sandog said, on July 22, 2018 at 8:32 am

      Watching from Mexico before we head out and play a round ourselves.
      I’m pulling for my SDSU brother Shauffele to take him down, but that doesnt look good at the moment.
      Spotty internet at our place, but I’ve been keeping tabs On the Giants and the Flap.
      Seize the awesome trophy!

      • Macdog said, on July 22, 2018 at 8:50 am

        Yeah, two bogeys and a double on the last three holes ain’t gonna get it done for Xander.

  4. djloo27 said, on July 22, 2018 at 8:33 am

    No matter what he does, I doubt Bum’s getting a new deal from anyone before the current one expires…

    • chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 9:59 am

      They will pick-up his option at $12 mil. After that it is anyone’s guess…

  5. willedav said, on July 22, 2018 at 9:02 am

    I might agree if he got slapped around, which he didn’t. Other than a couple chump hits A’s didn’t touch him until the one bad inning when they got all the BBs. That inning alone ump would not give him shit–at least one or two borderline pitches per hitter he got zero help on. The guy was bad all night very inconsistent on outside corner to LH/inside to RH.

    giants could trade Bum tomorrow, along with Belt Watson. They might not get the “haul” expected but he has very friendly contract and decent ERA. The others have had very good seasons too and could be moved if that’s direction Giants want to go.

    • willedav said, on July 22, 2018 at 9:02 am

      the “ump” was bad all night.

    I use to make model cars all the time as a kid like the Munster Mobile,Beer Wagon with wooden kegs in the back,vettes,mclarens24 hr lemans, Red Baron tri planes,and my favorite a 2ft tall Frankenstein model with moving arms and a chain with a brick attached! Lots of fun especially sniffing the glue lol 😂

    • Lurker John said, on July 22, 2018 at 11:55 am

      I made quite a few myself, mostly WWII aircraft. If fact, I have 5-6 unopened kits in my closet right now. Good winter hobby.

      • pawliekokonuts said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:02 pm

        we would start them, the ships too, and our dad would complete them overnight, bc he couldn’t stop working on it; that glue! easy to get high

  9. chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 11:11 am

    OK. Let’s win that fucking trophy!

    1. Chase d’Arnaud (R) 3B
    2. Brandon Belt (L) 1B
    3. Andrew McCutchen (R) RF
    4. Buster Posey (R) DH
    5. Nick Hundley (R) C
    6. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
    7. Austin Slater (R) LF
    8. Gorkys Hernandez (R) CF
    9. Kelby Tomlinson (R) 2B

    Slater sighting. Is it real, or is it a hologram?

    Hmmm…no fooling.

  10. alleykat69 said, on July 22, 2018 at 11:13 am

    Only watched alittle of the game,from a screen inside à Sushi 🍣 bar, with my GF who’s from Brazil 🇧🇷 it’s all about translations on your phone. I just say to her “it’s the international language of love ❤️ “ and she smiles, these gals from Brazil are so passionate compared to US women it’s unreal!!

  11. mrsprtdude said, on July 22, 2018 at 11:19 am

    Started watching the golf as Tiger hit the turn in 1st. Since that point he sucked bad. Missed every fairway. Played dumb vs safe, and couldn’t make a putt. Got outplayed by a guy no one ever heard of before today. Still had chances despite that…Woods Mcilroy Spieth Rose all in top 5 down the stretch and Molanari wins???Crazy

  12. Lurker John said, on July 22, 2018 at 11:53 am

    Nice to see the Giants allowing AT&T to be used for a rugby tournament this weekend. That I don’t get, letting your outfield grass get chewed up in the middle of the season. Weird.

    • chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 12:50 pm

      I’ve been watching chunks of that tournament. Very entertaining…quick paced.

      With day off tomorrow, and then two days in Seattle, if the field is a mess, I am sure they will re-sod.

  13. wilcojoe said, on July 22, 2018 at 12:39 pm

    Early on The Open had all the makings of an epic finish, but really ended up being a bit of a bore…Heading to Isla Mujeres in the morning for a week long vacation. My first time in Mexico. Any Flappers ever been and have restaurant/bar recommendations?

    • chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      Have fun, Wilco, and tip one for me.

  14. pawliekokonuts said, on July 22, 2018 at 12:55 pm

    Magnus’s 8:19a illustrates how big data can be ho-hum. Better to be selective. Like getting a glass of water from a fire hose.

  15. pawliekokonuts said, on July 22, 2018 at 12:56 pm

    Wanna see Loo’s popsicle house, will even settle for toothpicks.

  16. pawliekokonuts said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    I saw Chase D’Arnaud play in Syracuse when he was with Gwinnett or Lehigh Valley. Or maybe it was Travis. Or one of the Three Musketeers.

  17. Bozo said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    So, I’m guessing nobody wants to give the Bum a salary boost anymore? I agree with Chi, I think the Giants will pick up his option. Hell, $12 mil is Bartolo Colon money, they have to pick that up.

    Win the damn trophy today and before leaving Oakland, weld that fucker to the hood of the team bus and drive back across the Bay bridge doing 30 MPH.

  18. zumiee said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:13 pm

    LJ, as sole owner of the ballpark, the Giants owners are committed to making as much money off the ballpark as possible, whenever they can.

  19. Macdog said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:22 pm

    So, how’s that rugby looking?

    • chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:26 pm

      It has been broadcast locally…and I thought nationally. The big difference between the Sevens and regular rugby is only seven players to a side. Translates into lots of open field and a fast game. Only 7.5 minute halves with like a four minute halftime. I think it is pretty damned entertaining. There are women’s matches, too. Those are some tough ladies.

      • Macdog said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:39 pm

        I actually have caught some of the rugby — NBC put it on after the Open — and you’re right, it’s fast-paced and pretty cool to watch.

  20. chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:24 pm

    Here we go again…

    • willedav said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:29 pm

      beauty(or not) of the DH. Davis was awful in LF at ATT, here he all he has to do is hit.

  21. pawliekokonuts said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:37 pm

    why did the Brewers trade Khris Davis to Oakland for a song?

    • zumiee said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:44 pm

      Well, the Brewers have never won the World Series in their 50 years of existence. Hard to figure them sometimes. 🙂

  22. Macdog said, on July 22, 2018 at 1:46 pm

    How is it that an AL team like the A’s can bunt better than the Giants?

  23. chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:05 pm

    I’ve seen enough of Cueto…get the fucking hook. Game is getting away…

  24. chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:17 pm

    An “almost” tater by Slater…

  25. willedav said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:18 pm

    Slater crushed that. Gorks is hitting .225 this month with 1 bomb. Inevitable slide finally taking over. Weirdly enough, Gorks hits RHP better than LHP. Get Slater out there more often.

  26. snarkk said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:19 pm

    Slater rocked the S outta that ball. A bit towards left and it’s out. Wtf is he not playing …

  27. snarkk said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:21 pm

    Most fans I’ve ever seen at an As game here at Mausoleum. Still a dump…

  28. chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:31 pm

    Helluva play between d’Arnaud and Belt. Great throw, and excellent dig by Belt. OK – time to score some more runs…

  29. snarkk said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:31 pm

    Helluva pick there by Belt…

  30. James said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:43 pm

    Belt’s numbers now more in line with what you’d expect, although it’s worth noting he still has not gone on one of his annual K binges, and since June 1, nearly 40% of the pitches he’s seen are from LHers. For the year it’s 34%, and a typical number is in the 30% range.

  31. snarkk said, on July 22, 2018 at 2:43 pm

    McCutchen mcSucks. Trade this dude and play Slater. His swing is such a pull swing it’s ridiculous…

  32. Lurker John said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:08 pm

    Slater needs to be getting some extended playing time. The Giants probably aren’t going anywhere this year, so give these kids a chance to show what they can do. He strikes me as the most ML-ready of their young hitters. Any experience gained this year will pay off down the line. Is paying Pence all the way to the bitter end of his contract that damn important?

    If I’m the Giants, I’m looking to offload as many veteran contracts as possible before the trading deadline.

    Hispanic guy down about 4 rows from us wearing Panda Jersey, looks like him. Took bows for the Panda double, and a ration of good natured S from As fans…

  43. zumiee said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:23 pm

    Cueto went 7 innings! I did not see that coming.

    Nice. Honest to god I was just looking at McCutchen’s stats and wondering how long it’d been since his last HR. First one since June. We’ll take it!

  50. snarkk said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:31 pm

    Just got thru telling snarkeettes about the shift on McCutchen and I was sick of him hitting into it; but that he could pull as long as he hits it out of the yard to left. Then, Boom !!!

    • Flavor said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:33 pm

      Thought of you back peddling on him when that went out

      • snarkk said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:44 pm

        I’d Still get rid of him at the deadline…

    • pawliekokonuts said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:33 pm

      perfect timing

  51. willedav said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:33 pm

    Maybe the A’s have overused Use More of Petit.

  52. chipower9 said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:35 pm

    Craw looks horrible. What a weak-ass swing to strike out…

  53. pawliekokonuts said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:42 pm

    I never thought Melancon would pitch again, so anything is a bonus imo. Well, he got the bonus, the cash.

    Can anybody on the Giants friggin bunt?…

  67. Lurker John said, on July 22, 2018 at 3:56 pm

    Syndegaard to the DL with hand, foot and mouth disease. WTF.

    • willedav said, on July 22, 2018 at 4:21 pm

      yeah too bad. duggar tried once to bunt then struck out (again). Affeldt said it’s pitch selection for him right now.
      One walk since he’s been up. Nothing wrong with him in LU tho Hanson either.
