Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 24, 2018

Well, we’re back home. Probably ready to go on a nice little run of wins to get us right back in this bad boy. That is, assuming Buster made it off the plane alive. This is what I think about these days when I think of Buster:

San Dawg my old man got a kick out of your AMPM burger pic. Me? I’m still trying to sort out that tomato…

Facing Drew Hutchinson tonight. He’s a classic honky mlb pitcher. I’m sure we’ll crush him, right?

    Home Cookin great tune by one of my fav guys, Junior Walker. Somewhere I have vinyl of his Greatest Hits Good stuff

    Besides Harper, looking for list of FA OFs. MLBTR story on Cutch mentioned possibility Giants (unhappy with offers) do not trade him and give him the QO @$18mil for next season. If he does leave they get extra pick; if not there is value of another season until he is dealt.

    • Flavor said, on August 24, 2018 at 7:31 am

      giving him a qualifying offer would be the dumbest thing we could do. It would kill any moderate interest that is out there for him as a free agent as it is now

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 7:53 am

        Totally agree. If they won’t trade him and then do a QA, the front office is inept, insane or both…

      • willedav said, on August 24, 2018 at 8:02 am

        so you just let him walk for nothing? Or take whatev as short time rental right now?
        what he has done this year does have to be replaced if you want to be better than the Padres…that’s why I wondered who is out there as FA for next year beside Harper.

      • gianthead said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:48 am

        Totally

      • YogiBarrister (@Yogi47951368) said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:51 am

        It’s only a dumb move if paying him 18 million next year is unacceptable.
        The value of any prospect they could get in return now is marginal.
        The $300,000,000 elephant in the room will not be signing with the Giants, not in 2019, not ever.
        If it were up to me, I’d save the $18,000,000 and play Slater in RF.

    • gianthead said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:49 am

      Sadly our minor leaguers will come up with same level of McCutch production and wont cost $18 mill. Why waste the money???

  2. willedav said, on August 24, 2018 at 8:10 am

    This is the way I look at trade anyone scenario:
    Trade Bum and your SPs are weakened indefinitely. Holland DRod Suarez Strat yada yada, there’s no way that group gives up fewer runs than current one. A pen guy or two I could see as expendable, SPs no
    Trade off Belt Cutch Longo etc., unless you go out and spend $$$ on couple hitters to replace their production, no way that LU scores more runs than current one.
    so now you’re the Padres, who suck, scoring less and giving up more. Good luck with that.

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:02 am

      Yup, whoever the club trades away they’ll immediately be looking for an equivalent to fill that gap, especially Bumgarner and Belt, so it has to be some sort of blockbuster.

  3. snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 8:11 am

    He declines even more next year. They can’t be serious about him actually being in 2019 plans. Even more reason for a year down if he is..

  4. willedav said, on August 24, 2018 at 8:24 am

    Best FAs (beside Harper and Machado) for position players I could find in cursory look would be :
    Tribe’s Michael Brantley (LH)
    Stros Marwin Gonzalez (switch hitter throws R and plays everywhere)
    D J LeMahieu RH 2b from Rox.
    Decent hitters all, but not much pop.

  5. blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:01 am

    $18 million qualifying offer? Agree, that would be “inept, dumb, and/or insane.” Cutch is gone . . . If not before the August 31st waiver deadline, than definitely next season. His $18 million seasons are pfffttt after this season.

    Let’s face facts – the outfield competition is going to be Gorkys, Slater, Duggar, Oaf, and whatever else Sabes can find in the trade/FA dumpster. For shit and giggles to appease the fan base, the Front Office will throw out a couple of “fake news” stories about offers to the Harper’s and Machado’s on the free agent market. I just don’t see how they’re going to upgrade this team, with all the existing contract “anchors” around their neck.

    • sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:20 am

      Do you think the pursuit of Stanton last year was fake news? I don’t think it was. I think they truly had a deal in place and Stanton nixed it—which was smart of him. Given that, I think they will go after Harper and Machado. I don’t think those guys want to hit in our park, so they won’t be interested, but I think they will legitimately go after them.

      • chipower9 said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:51 pm

        I do not think the Stanton news from last year was BS. Not sure about Machado, but I think they’ll go hard at Harper. Supposedly he likes to play here, but I would fall outta my fucking chair if they signed him. Kind of how I did when they signed Bonds.

    • gianthead said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:54 am

      Nailed it Blade…free agent talk will be all for show. They did go all in for Stanton and Ohtani last off-season and that should be a lesson that free-agent hitters at that level (at-least potential for Ohtani) dont want to come to SF and ATT.

      Why need to build a lineup around speed and contact hitting…get Boch the hell out of there…

  6. dirtnrocksnomo said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:11 am

    Ominous sign for Booby, who i’d counsel to dust off his resume, that Sabean is highly visible in the local media this week.

    • xoot said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:55 am

      I agree with that.

    • chipower9 said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:53 pm

      Yep, in the article that Flav shared the other day, theyreferred to him as the GM at one point (and later as VP of Baseball Operations). Many of us have been saying for some time that Evans needed to go. It’s time.

  7. Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:31 am

    Pence’s $18.5 comes off the books, McCutchen’s $14.8 probably comes off the books but if you look at this chart from Cot’s Contracts (it includes a tax liability chart), you’ll see a bunch of arb eligible folks probably wanting raises (Panik, Strikland etc..) and the guys at the $.5 salaries (Gorkys, Moraonta etc..) wanting to get bumped up. So the Giants will have to make some moves. One I’d love to see gone before he gets busted or goes back to being a bust is Gorkys . Also, I think a match could be found for Longoria (mostly in the AL). One more year of Pablo with the Sox paying, I say let him play.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FPqQ67n_0T1niTkaJjEsNSxXoJWZpqG5TkYkSsWITEM/pubhtml#

    The type of power hitter I’d like to see them get is a line drive hitting right hander (think, Uribe or Kent). With the juiced balls and probably the HR derby, it seems that most guys these days are trying to lift the ball for HRs and that does work in most parks, but not so much at Pac Bell.

    • Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:36 am

      And yes, I do think the Giants will pick up Bum’s option.

    • gianthead said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:56 am

      Sorry Bozo…no one is taking Longoria’s stiff of a contract. They did not have any takers for what little is left on McCutch’s deal on waivers…

      • Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:07 am

        McCutchen cleared waivers, that doesn’t mean he won’t or can’t be moved by the deadline but like I said above, his $14.8 will probably come off the books.
        Longoria on the other hand, I do believe could and probably will be moved in the off-season, he’d be a good fit for an AL team needing a DH who sometimes plays 3B.

      • chipower9 said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:55 pm

        I think the Longoria possibility is even more realistic if the Giants eat a little salary. And if that is the only option (to eat some salary), they should do it.

  8. wilcojoe said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:34 am

    It would be interesting if Sabean hired a young sabermetric geek to replace Evans. I think it almost has to happen.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:48 am

      Agree. Maybe he’s available . . .

  9. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:56 am

    Giants FO always plays the tease game with the fans.They day were all in going after Harper are Machado, right up till,well we gave it are best! “Like in The Rock when Connery said to Cage you have to be up for this no hesitation, which Cage I’ll do my best,which Connery said your best? Your best is when you fuck the home coming queen, which Cage said Carla was the home coming queen 👸.

  10. zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 11:58 am

    The kind of off-season I don’t want to see is the Giants having a bunch of near-misses on big free agents, and then eventually settling for bargain basement types. I’d rather just jettison a bunch of older guys and take our pounding the next couple of years.
    Move Bart quickly up the minor league ladder next season, and get him here in the middle of the season.
    But….we know what we’re probably going to see. Another season of a struggling and aged team trying to get to .500, and make sure the attendance at the ballpark is in the 30,000s.
    The Giants ownership, no doubt, spends the vast majority of their time talking about the big real estate development project.
    But at some point, they better start caring about the ball team, or they’re going to see the team hit a really long skid, as the A’s take up all the baseball oxygen in the Bay Area for years to come.

    • wilcojoe said, on August 24, 2018 at 12:20 pm

      Agree. Could you imagine if the A’s somehow got a beautiful downtown Oakland ballpark built which led to gentrification and revitalization of Oak town? Talk about the tables turning.

      • gianthead said, on August 24, 2018 at 1:34 pm

        Essentially why the Giants blocked the move to San Jose.. which I still find outrageous as a Giants fan from the Jo…

  11. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2018 at 12:22 pm

    Their going to keep running Posey out there which is asinine cause they don’t have a backup catcher for Hundley down on the farm decent enough.. guess it has to be Trevor Brown whatever???

  12. Flavor said, on August 24, 2018 at 12:26 pm

    if we offer McCutchen the 18 mil qualifier we are stuck with him. 18 mil is probably all that guy would get in a 3 year deal from someone else. AND they’d have to give up a first rd pick? No one is doing that. And he’s not working for 3 years for 18 when he could make it in a single year.
    Save this post, throw it in my face if we offer it to him AND he declines it. But I think there is near zero chance that either of those things happen

  13. gianthead said, on August 24, 2018 at 1:24 pm

    Flav, is the Posey vs. Pence home run battle at 0-0….I’m feeling pretty good about winning now!!

    But in terms of Posey and his hip, great argument can be made that his presence in the lineup since the all-star break actually made us less competitive, especially when Boch kept hitting him cleanup!!! Who knows. Hundley starts more and one could argue we could have won 4-5 games and would actually be a couple of games out in division and wild card…

    • gianthead said, on August 24, 2018 at 1:30 pm

      And with the degenerative hip, I think it is obvious they have to go to Posey and say while you go through recovery, no catching for you and you are now our primary first baseman. Can they now move Belt in the off-season??? Nats could also be a potential landing place for him..they will have the cash big time to handle his decent salary remaining.

    • dirtnrocksnomo said, on August 24, 2018 at 2:17 pm

      Agree with you re Posey. In a way he’s a huge hole in the LU and Bochy just keeps plugging him in there at the top but it’s not like there’s much of an alternative.

  14. Flavor said, on August 24, 2018 at 1:28 pm

    twitter filled to the brim with idiots who think we’re gonna land Harper. That makes no sense on so many levels.

    • gianthead said, on August 24, 2018 at 1:32 pm

      Hell would literally freeze over before we landed Harper…funny, after the Spanks landed Stanton, I think many including me thought the Spanks would move Stanton to the Flodgers and then sign Harper.

      Now, I dont think they will find any taker for Stanton and that contract. I think even money on Harper ending up with the Cubs..

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on August 24, 2018 at 2:16 pm

        Harper landing in SF is as likely as a Wilbur Ross business deal being on the up and up. Hoooo, hey now!

        (sorry, couldn’t resist)

        I guess I have some intellectual gaps…

  15. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2018 at 2:10 pm

    Yeah we’re not landing Harper no freakin way, but sure would be nice cause the Giants have the least amount of power in the outfield then any team,and will continue that trend..

  16. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2018 at 2:18 pm

    We are just fucked. The trade pieces we do have we might as well keep as all we will do is weaken a weak team. None of the dead wood we want to get rid of is get-rid-of-able. Pence will sail away, at least. Keep Bum till the deadline next year and hold out for whatever they can get. His pitching is still above average, and his playoff record still means something.

    Cutch? Bye bye. Craw and Posey will plod along. Smargle should be shitcanned. Cueto is a hologram for most of next year. So we will have a young pitching staff with a mishmash of fair to poor position players. Panik may get a high A guy or a middling AAer. Thats about all we got. If Longo and Craw hit, pablo is super sub off the bench, yadda yadda yadda, Right. We will be batting gravity again.

    As far as Harper goes, I’ll believe it when it happens.

  17. snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 2:31 pm

    Harper would be insane to come to Att. Why get a LH power bar anyway? Makes no sense I’m that park. Trade Bum now or offseason. Don’t risk injury or arm trouble through first half next year…

    • Lurker John said, on August 24, 2018 at 6:07 pm

      Because they play half their games in other parks and he’s already shown he has no problem jacking the ball out of AT&T. There’s not a park in baseball that can hold that guy when he squares one up.

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 11:14 pm

        He ain’t comin’, book it…

  18. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    They ain’t gonna roll that way, Snarkk. And unless they get an offer that is out of this world, he won’t moving this year. He’s have to clear waivers. And if someone did claim him, the Giants would have little leverage trading him now if someone signed him.

  19. Flavor said, on August 24, 2018 at 4:09 pm

  21. xoot said, on August 24, 2018 at 4:44 pm

    I had to see my PT yesterday, a guy doctors and trainers rave about. He knows the Giants’ PT people; he met Buster at some conference where Posey spoke about his own PT experiences, post-2011. My guy has heard nothing specific about the current hip problem, but he said it’s usually pretty clear–either osteo-arthritic issues (full or partial hip replacement), labrum tears (hello, Lincecum) or bone-spur-like problems. That list descends in severity. (Mrsportsdude chime in, please.) If Buster comes back strong, he’ll want to catch. If he doesn’t come back strong, who gives a shit where he plays.

    MadBum pitched very well yesterday. Looks like he can do that at least some of the time for quite a while. He’s not much of an ace anymore, though.

    Our two best players are headed downhill, maybe faster than we want to imagine. I’m fine with Craw, Belt and Longo. That’s a good IF. But not great. Add Altuve and it’s still not great.

    The pen also is good. But not great. And the starting pitching, after aged MadBum, is what they call an unknown.

    Next year looks weak, right now. FO worked hard to stay under the luxury tax this year to be able to invest a lot during the off season. The owners and FO may reconsider their strategy. Maybe they should just stay under the tax while it still exists to off-set the money they’re going to lose in revenue for a few years. Meanwhile, the new development will rise across McCovey Cove, just north of the Warriors’ new arena, which is going up now.

    • Flavor said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:23 pm

      great post.

    • chipower9 said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:48 pm

      Yes, awesome post, xoot. That Mission Rock development is going to be a financial grand slam for the Giants. Last I heard they were hoping to start construction early next year. Mo money mo money mo money….

      Good synopsis on Buster and the team, too.

  22. unca_chuck said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    I’ve never heard of bone spurs in the hips. Shoulders? Elbows? Sure but it usually isn’t a leg thing. i doubt its bone spurs. Which leaves the other worse alternatives.

    • xoot said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:17 pm

      Bone spurs in the hip are common. Could be more than one problem, however

      • chipower9 said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:40 pm

        Which they should be able to determine once they get in there to address the spurs. Looking more and more like it was a good call to draft a catcher.

      • xoot said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:59 pm

        good point, about the Bart draft pick. Maybe they really do understand the weaknesses and actually are working to rebuild. Sabean did a great job drafting during the down years after 2003. Too hazy for hope, too good to be impossible.

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 6:49 pm

        They had to know about the hip going into the draft…

  23. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2018 at 5:15 pm

    Does anybody in the Giants organization have a clue anymore on making decisions??
    The latest being The Shark. They can’t decide if he needs surgery are if he does it’s even fixable??? WTF And remember when he had the supposed pectoral strain, and rest would take care of that( think Cueto lol) but holy cow it turned out to be his shoulder??I have no faith in this organization/medical staff to do anything Right anymore..

    One sad casualty (for me) of the Giants falling out of it is the simple and slight pleasure of perusing the standings, something I stopped doing a few weeks ago. Just checked for the first time in awhile and I was surprised to see that there are 11 teams in the majors (of which TX is one) with worse records than the G’s… some of them horribly worse. That AL Central division is a joke. I wonder how the fans of those teams feel? Or fans of TX, watching this Giants team we’re all numbly disgusted with beating up on the Rangers…. so, I guess it could be worse. Not that that makes this team any more lovable…

    I googled Gorkys’ nickname Cazador. Here’s what came up from one of the sources:
    “A mutherf#cking huge mutant wasp in Fallout: New Vegas. Kills you with one sting. big-ass son of a bitch wasp.”

    • xoot said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:21 pm

      Yeah that’s how I feel after a few of shots of los cazadores

  43. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    I’m warming up to Duggar a little.
    A genius instructor could turn him into Paul O’Neill…

    • Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:18 pm

      Me too. I had to remind myself that he was on the Minor League fast track so he’s still figuring some things out.

  44. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:12 pm

    I doubt any ex baseball player ever pays for a ticket..Maybe Flavors boy Phil Nastu had too,i sort of recall something about getting him beers on the Flapper credit card account,..

    • djloo27 said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:26 pm

      You think Adam Shabala just strolls into AT&T at will?

  45. alleykat69 said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:27 pm

    What’s Pence nickname?Washed up??

    • Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:36 pm

      Close, it’s Underpants. But his friends call him skid mark.

      Damn, I could have gone a long, long time without ever typing that

  46. zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:28 pm

    Yeah, Paul, the AL Central is a colossal joke this season. Over very early.

  47. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:54 pm

    As for Duggar, yeah, still learning but definite potential, and I think Slater could turn out to be a good player too. We say we would be patient in a rebuild, but I think just a little patience with those 2 could go a long way, especially considering how awful the OF has been for years now. But then again, I remember thinking that Calvin Murray had potential, so…….

  48. sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:58 pm

    Gearrin coming in! Or has he been in—-I’m just tuning in.

    • Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:01 pm

      Not in yet, he was warming up though.

      • sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:04 pm

        I got all excited and jumped the gun a little bit.

  49. Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 9:59 pm

    I’d feel a bit more comfortable if we were able to get a few insurance runs.

  50. zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:14 pm

    Guerrin’s biggest achievement in baseball will have been to help bring in the pitch clock.
    Congratulations, Guerrin, take a bow.

    • djloo27 said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:17 pm

      What is this motherfucker staring at?

      • zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:21 pm

        Yeah, the whole stupid ritual he goes through before even looking in for the sign. Imagine being the catcher waiting for the stupid ritual to end so you can put fingers down.

  51. Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:18 pm

    Belt and Longo not getting it done.

  52. zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:24 pm

    Embarrassing moment for Posey.

  53. sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    wow

  54. Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    Fuck me…

  55. zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    Embarrassing moment for Panik.

    • snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:29 pm

      This team just finds more and more ways to F up.
      That doesn’t help Panik’s case to hang around next year…

  56. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:27 pm

    That’s on Giant D – not the Fresh Wince…

  57. xoot said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:27 pm

    Holey sheet what a fuckin debacle

  58. sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:28 pm

    Embarrassing moment for Smith.

  59. zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:28 pm

    No win for D-Rod.

  60. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:28 pm

    Reminded me of Snow’s HR off Benitez…

  61. sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:29 pm

    We’re not going to have a pitcher with 10 win this year.

    • zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:30 pm

      Ouch.

    • djloo27 said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:31 pm

      When was the last time a team had no 10 game winner and no 20 HR hitter in the same season?

      • sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:32 pm

        1972 Texas Rangers

      • sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:32 pm

        (I pulled that out of my ass, but I actually think it is a decent guess)

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:34 pm

        Last year’s Giants?…

      • sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:36 pm

        It is last year’s Giants!

      • snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:45 pm

        They were so bad in 2017, I figured they had a shot…

  62. sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:34 pm

    Loo compares Duggar to Paul O’ Neill. Bochy compares him to Steve Finley.
    Can you name the Flapper who compared him to Ken Henderson?
    How about the Flapper who has compared him both to Dan Gladden and Mike Kingery?

  63. zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:36 pm

    Melancon did his part, too, giving up a run.

    • sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:38 pm

      Many have contributed—total team effort.

  64. Bozo said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    These guys sure like extra inning games

  65. djloo27 said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:41 pm

    For an instant, I thought Dyson’s jersey nickname was “PFFFFT”..

    • zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:55 pm

      It should be.

  66. snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:49 pm

    Looking’ at that Panik error, it wasn’t a routine play, but not far from it. You can see he looked up on the last bounce, he didn’t look the ball into the glove. Looking up made him pull up his glove a bit at the last second; that caused the bobble…

  67. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 24, 2018 at 10:57 pm

    Looking at the players involved in the box score of this game, there are 14 players, give or take. I would welcome half of them being gone. That’s not good.

  68. zumiee said, on August 24, 2018 at 11:05 pm

    Their closer is wiping people out.

  69. snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 11:12 pm

    Bad loss…

    • Lurker John said, on August 24, 2018 at 11:32 pm

      Blowing a 6 run lead at home? Yeah…

  70. snarkk said, on August 24, 2018 at 11:18 pm

    Kuiper blamed McCutchen and surprise, Belt — for not adding on with RISP. Left it to Kruk to bring up Panik’s error and Smith for giving up the dinger, and then Dyson for the game winning walk. You lead 6-0, you gotta win the game. Kuip needs a vacation…

    • sandog said, on August 24, 2018 at 11:25 pm

      An Aerosmith vacation….

  71. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2018 at 4:06 am

    Posey surgery is Monday per Yahoo.
    Recovery time: 6-8 months…

    • blade3colorado said, on August 25, 2018 at 6:51 am

      Smarg set back too. Figures.
