Funniest thing of the year would be if the Phillies just pulled out of this Harper stuff.

This is a good one, I don’t have a guess….yet

Baseball Reference can make me so nutty. I would not have gotten this one in a million years.
What player did the Giants sign as a FA twice and trade for once – all within a 5 year period?

    Gregor Blanco? Just a guess.

      Oops, sorry about the double post.

    Ishi?

    • James said, on February 24, 2019 at 8:31 am

      “past his prime” from the thread yesterday undoubtedly signals it ain’t Travis . . . .

  4. unca_chuck said, on February 24, 2019 at 8:54 am

    Kenny Lofton?

  5. unca_chuck said, on February 24, 2019 at 8:56 am

    I know i’m wrong . . . Ray Ray?

  6. Bozo said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:02 am

    Did we have Aurilla 3 times? I only remember twice.

    • Bozo said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:09 am

      Maybe the Prez Whiteside, or was he just going from the minors to majors back to the minors back to the majors back to the minors to coaching. We must have struck a deal with Greyhound at some point.

  7. Bozo said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:22 am

    The lineup for today’s viewing pleasure.

    Something weird like Ernie Riles?

  9. wilcojoe said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:38 am

    Twins guy Andres Torres?

    • Bozo said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:49 am

      Good call, wilco. He was with a few times.

  10. gianthead said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:50 am

    I think I stumbled on the answer.. the Giants teams that I have the least memory of after moving to DC and before the baseball satellite package…Stan Javier…

    • Macdog said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:52 am

      I thought of him, too.

  11. alleykat69 said, on February 24, 2019 at 11:33 am

    In one of his last visits to ATT Peter Magowan apologized to Mac Williamson about the BP mounds which cost him the rest of last year due to concussion symptoms.
    Supposedly Bud Selig had concerns over it when the park 1st opened saying it could be a dangerous situation.
    Giants really need to bring in triples alley at 421 ft and put the BP’s back there, are maybe behind the Chevron cars in LF?

  12. unca_chuck said, on February 24, 2019 at 11:41 am

    Yeah, my idea was to replace the garden in CF. Plenty of room there.

  13. Flavor said, on February 24, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    Bad bum.

    • blade3colorado said, on February 24, 2019 at 1:23 pm

      Fortunately, it’s only his first game and a Spring training game at that. But yeah, 5 hits, 3 runs and a 27 ERA doesn’t look too good. Other than Belt and Panik bombs and Beede pitching 2 scoreless innings, the Giants look hapless, 8-3 Cubs after 4.

  14. snarkk said, on February 24, 2019 at 1:04 pm

    Estes sounds promising on the radio. Way better than Affeldt, IMO…

  15. willedav said, on February 24, 2019 at 1:05 pm

    Watching Michigan Michigan St., gotta admit seeing e trade commercial done to “Atomic Dog” isn’t something I would have predicted.

  16. willedav said, on February 24, 2019 at 1:16 pm

    Highly recommend Astroball by Ben Reiter. Stros became interesting mix of analytics area scouts and “gut feelings” in drafting acquiring and developing talent pool. And the unquantifiable chemistry of adding savvy vet in last season too.

    Plus it goes over their struggles and mistakes, which include releasing one J D Martinez. And the response which was to fire mgr and replace him with Hinch and to extend analytics all the way to Single A ball players and coaches.

  17. snarkk said, on February 24, 2019 at 1:27 pm

    Beedah flinging 97, that’s interesting. That’s after the usual “he’s in the best shape ever” stuff. Let’s see if he can repeat it over the next month…

    • xoot said, on February 24, 2019 at 3:19 pm

      He’s throwing only the four-seamer now. He better have some control over that thing.

  18. willedav said, on February 24, 2019 at 1:53 pm

    Drew Ferguson is a Houston guy, rule 5. High OB, including .400+ for Fresno AAA last season, not much pop.
    started his Stros career in Tri-City, Single A team in Troy NY that comes up at end of Astroball, where Stros sent one of their highest analytics guys to look over what they had going on there. He has to go back if Giants don’t keep him, so see what happens in ST. RH too.

  19. alleykat69 said, on February 24, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    Well with Duggar’s dicey shoulder I can’t see how they can’t keep Ferguson..
    40 man Giant roster players does anybody know?
    Melvin Adon?
    Hanser Alberto?
    Trevor Gott?
    Jose Lopez?

    • xoot said, on February 24, 2019 at 3:18 pm

      well, yeah, Adon was the guy throwing a free and easy 100 mph today

      • alleykat69 said, on February 24, 2019 at 3:21 pm

        I like a free and easy 100 mph, how was his control ? Xoot ?

      • xoot said, on February 24, 2019 at 3:24 pm

        I heard him strike out two guys, masterfully, but the guy in the middle came up expecting the heat and hit a HR. Still, he blew people away in fall ball and he’s apparently strong and durable. 24 I think Miller said.

  20. zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    DJ Peters is an outfielder Zaidi drafted for the Dodgers in the 4th round a couple of years ago. He hit two HRs for the Dodgers today.

    • zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 3:26 pm

      It was part of 3 HRs in a row:
      “Back-to-back-to-back home runs by Dodgers minor-leaguers Omar Estevez, Matt Beaty and DJ Peters in the 7th inning. Peters’ second HR of the game.”
      Muncy got hit twice by pitches today. These guys just hang over the plate and swing for the fences.

  21. blade3colorado said, on February 24, 2019 at 3:27 pm

    Bum said he felt good and Beede was outstanding. Turn off your ad blockers (sheesh, even Red Bluff rag is doing this) to read this summary of today’s outing . . .

  22. djloo27 said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:01 pm

    Okay, for those who might care, one more clue.
    His memorable AB to me was a WS home run…

    • blade3colorado said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:07 pm

      Dunston???

      • djloo27 said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:08 pm

        WINNER!!!!

    • djloo27 said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:07 pm

      Which he hit in the final game of his career…

      • blade3colorado said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:11 pm

        Same game we lost the series in.

      • djloo27 said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:16 pm

        Technically no, but yes. It was in Game 6…

      • blade3colorado said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:26 pm

        you’re right. Loo, do you know who the oldest player was in that Series?

      • zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:27 pm

        I remember that HR well. I remember thinking, for the first time in my life, the Giants were going to win the World Series.
        Well….

      • sandog said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:39 pm

        Game 6 was the most devastating sports fan moment of my life. The 3 rings since help a bunch, but thinking of that series will always hurt.

        Blade, I googled a bit, but I’m not positive I have the right answer. If it wasn’t Dunston himself, was it an old Giants lefty at the end of the Angels bullpen?

  23. alleykat69 said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:33 pm

    Wouldn’t that be Dunston?? Blade?

    • blade3colorado said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:43 pm

      Whoa! I just saw this (and your time stamp AK). My bad . . . you guessed it.

  24. Macdog said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:36 pm

    Great job, Blade! You guys remember way more from that WS than I sure care to.

  25. blade3colorado said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:40 pm

    Bingo SD . . . Shawon was the dude at 39 or 40 I think.

    • blade3colorado said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:42 pm

      I remember that because after his bomb, his son gave him a hug and the announcers commented on his age.

  26. alleykat69 said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    Dennis Cook??

    • sandog said, on February 24, 2019 at 6:11 pm

      Nice pull AK.
      That is who I was alluding to. Both listed at 39, but I didn’t bother to look up the month and I also don’t remember if Cook was on the Angels WS roster.
      Did he pitch in that series, do you remember?

      • alleykat69 said, on February 24, 2019 at 6:53 pm

        Sandog, Cook was left off the W/S roster I believe..

  27. alleykat69 said, on February 24, 2019 at 4:44 pm

    Shit I didn’t think any team could have a older player then the Giants even back then..🤔

  28. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 24, 2019 at 8:14 pm

    Any Flap U messages you want me to relay to our Dear Leader when he’s here in Hanoi this week?

    • unca_chuck said, on February 24, 2019 at 8:27 pm

      Tell him to check in to the Hanoi Hilton for a couple years.

    • Macdog said, on February 24, 2019 at 8:29 pm

      CNN just so happens to be airing the Bourdain show where he meets up with Obama in Vietnam right now.

    • alleykat69 said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:08 pm

      Yeah tell him to checkout Neko massage parlor, are Oasis massage,or Blue spa are several others around Hanoi for a uplifting experience..

    • zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:22 pm

      Being a sociopath, Trump only really listens to the other sociopaths that have been in his life. Roy Cohn, Roger Stone, Steve Bannon, and others. History will look back on this presidency as a pile of stinking garbage. We just have to endure it in the meantime.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:23 pm

      John, a very different response/reaction here to Obama’s visit and Trump’s. They loved Obama. They don’t like Trump. They make a face when his name is mentioned. Not a pretty face at that. “Obama: good! Trump: no good!” Smart people.

      • zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:36 pm

        Reading Jon Meacham’s “The Soul of America” lifted my spirits. The book is a reminder about the nation’s perseverance through other dark periods in its history.

  29. zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    I don’t get people getting caught up in the Oscars. Movies are great, but we shouldn’t overrate their importance. The people who really should watch “Green Book” and absorb its message aren’t going to watch it.

    • unca_chuck said, on February 25, 2019 at 8:17 am

      The funniest part about Green Book winning was seeing all the white guys getting the Oscars.

  30. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    SanDawg, I hear ya about that game 6 in ’02. I also couldn’t believe that I had to go through that for the 2nd time (1st time being game 6 in ’86 in Boston). I still cannot watch replays from that ’86 World Series. Of course, both SF and Boston have won it all several times each since then, which does ease the sting of it a bit…

  31. zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:43 pm

    MLB Network is doing its ’30 teams in 30 days’
    feature. Today was the Padres, and oh the hype. Tomorrow is the Giants. That could be scary. The shows always try to find positives, though. 🙂

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 24, 2019 at 10:15 pm

      Perhaps a very very short feature….

  32. zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:47 pm

    I’m completely over the ’02 World Series. I don’t feel any emotional connection to it anymore. We’ve won 3 championships since then, and the Angels none. It’s all good. 🙂

  33. zumiee said, on February 24, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Rami Malek won an Oscar for his Freddie Mercury portrayal. That’s cool.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 24, 2019 at 10:19 pm

      I didn’t really like the film (very superficial) but Malek was great, well deserved.

  34. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 24, 2019 at 10:14 pm

    Oh, and Charlie, there actually is a pretty nice Hilton here in Hanoi, obviously not to be confused with the now tourist attraction old Hanoi Hilton. Hmmm….. the Hilton used to have a pretty nice spa that ahem, also included rub and tug. Not sure if they still do that (I confess, I visited it in ’04). Maybe could arrange a little set-up there for Trump ala his buddy Kraft…

  35. djloo27 said, on February 25, 2019 at 3:37 am

    Obama was the greatest President in history.
    3 World Championships for the Giants during his administrations!

    • zumiee said, on February 25, 2019 at 5:54 am

      Yes! 🙂

    • unca_chuck said, on February 25, 2019 at 8:19 am

      Works for me . . .
