Death By Lefty

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on March 30, 2019

There isn’t much to say about the start to this season. Utterly predictable. The Padres are now straight up trolling us by starting someone today named “Nick Margevicius”. He’s never started above A ball but he’s left handed and it now seems teams will just roll out any left handers they have anywhere in their system to beat us.

Only 160 more of these….

    If this isn’t a joke please someone light me on fire. If we cant beat a Single A pitcher today then this team and what ownership/management rolled out this season is even more of a joke.

    But maybe this is great strategy for the Pads against the Flodgers…

    • gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:29 am

      And I caught the top of the 9th last night, if that performance by the home plate umpire does not convince everyone it is time for a robo-ump on balls and strikes, then I am also ready to be lit on fire…

    D-Rod better get some help. SIck of this already. At least they showed a pulse yesterday. Finallly.

    I’m not sweating a bad start.
    It’s the bad middle and bad end that could get a little old…

    Lauer&Luchessi weren’t even on this Pads team last year, and their whole staff is supposedly the weak link with this team.But yeah does it matter anymore who faces the Giants, they all pitch like Cy Young as we’re lucky to scratch out 5-6 meaniless hits never in a row with a DP throwing to kill any chance of a big inning, sound normal?

  5. blade3colorado said, on March 30, 2019 at 10:41 am

    Similar to what snarkk said, the “wilderness” was predicted a couple of seasons ago. Get used to it. This is what I’m taking from it . . . The G-Men are about 3 seasons away from having our own Tatis, Lauer, and Paddack come up from the minor league system; signing a young stud like Machado; and, being the youngest team in MLB (currently we are the oldest and the Padres are the youngest).

    Nope, I’m not sweating this.

    • snarkk said, on March 30, 2019 at 10:49 am

      Yep, blade.
      No magic bullet available.
      This organization was in shambles when ZMan took over. Can’t get fixed overnight.
      It’s going to be a rough ride for a few years.
      But hey, any fan that can remember back to the 70s, and some of the 80s years, knows the wilderness drill.
      Gotta look for the occasional nugget of good baseball to get through it. Thing was, in those days the Stoneham drunken ownership and lack of revenue and bad ballpark could take the blame. Not so with the last two and next couple of years of gray. The entire organization just dropped the ball and lost focus. Hopefully, won’t be as bad and as long as 2004-2008 darkness…

        “Thing was, in those days the Stoneham drunken ownership and lack of revenue and bad ballpark could take the blame. Not so with the last two and next couple of years of gray.”

        Agree unequivocally.

    The Dubs string of domination looks like it is coming to a close. They may win another trophy in June. But, the team will look a lot different next season, most likely. It will be interesting to see how Lacob handles the challenges of keeping an organization on top or near top after a historic run of championship level play. I think he will be more successful than the Giants at keeping the level of play very high. I heard on KNBR yesterday that the new Chase Center already has something like $2 billion worth of non-basketball bookings over the next several years after it opens…

  7. alleykat69 said, on March 30, 2019 at 11:27 am

    People ask me what I do in winter time when theirs no baseball.I”ll tell you what I do.I stare out the window and wait for spring.

  8. unca_chuck said, on March 30, 2019 at 11:29 am

    I don’t know, Snarkk. The last few Warrior drafts have been underwhelming at best. Steph and Klay and Dray will be in for another 5 years, but the youngsters are not following. evans,Jones, Bell and Looney aren’t pressing anyone for playing time.

  9. Flavor said, on March 30, 2019 at 2:31 pm

    How long we gonna do Posey at clean up….

    • Bozo said, on March 30, 2019 at 3:29 pm

      That has had me mystified for a few years now. .

  10. Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 5:32 pm

    Anybody got Texas Tech in the Final Four?

    • gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:10 pm

      Yes sirriee baby!!! Now need Purdue!!! Then Michigan State wins, I finish second in this 250 entry tourney I am in…

  11. zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 5:58 pm

    Craw gets platooned to the bench today.

    • Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:10 pm

      And Solarte makes an error with a hideous throw. First Joe in LF, now this. Did Z even bother scouting these guys?

  12. gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    Krukow with the most overblown statement ever that Longoria is the Giants hottest hitter….uhhhhh duh….

  13. barry4ever2 said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    This is the look of an utterly futile and hopeless SF Midgets team. Dodgers are cruising to the playoffs and the Lakers will take over the NBA next year. The Rams own the NFC West and LA owns Bay Area sports!

    • gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:29 pm

      I vote for a ban!!!

      • gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:32 pm

        yes even if your Fodgers made the world series again, you will continue to lose and we will enjoy your misery compounded. Your Laker comment at least reveals you’re either just joking to be a complete trolling smart ass or your ridiculousness/stupidity….

    • Flavor said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:22 pm

      yeah, the Lakers have really taken off with lebron. Also, what exactly have you guys won lately? Lol, exactly, zero…..

  14. gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:28 pm

    Longoria looked super hot right there…well this year the Giants are giving us a whole new level of the definition to the word torture!!!

  15. Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    Crap o’ Joe.

  16. gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    I am completely underwhelmed by what I have seen of Connor Joe and Reed. Slater and Cheesy Mac not better than what we have seen so far?

    • alleykat69 said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:50 pm

      I’m beginning to miss Gorky, and I can’t believe I said that but wtf?

  17. alleykat69 said, on March 30, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    Krukow..Well that won’t go unnoticed in the Giants dugout of Belt’s getting hit.Should spark these guys to get a rally going!
    Next hitter Joe DP thank you inning over..

    • gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:02 pm

      Yeah Kruk a single A lefty throwing to a left handed hitter….things are going to get a little tight…

  18. Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    A lead!

  19. gianthead said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    I think I may have figured out one level of Farhan’s madness. He knows ownership wants to keep Bum because of fans and attendance concerns.

    So how does Farhan sow the seeds of cutting ties with Bum, having an awful team of historic proportions may force ownership to conclude they have no alternative to tear it all down…

    The shooting in the UVA-Purdue game is crazy right now…but at least the Giants scored…

  20. Bozo said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:17 pm

    Making some noise.

  21. Flavor said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    BarryForever? Man, that’s a blast from the past.

  22. zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:34 pm

    Big flub from Wotus sending Posey.

  23. Flavor said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:40 pm

    Longo hurt, and so it begins.

  24. Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    Wow, what a way to force OT for Virginia.

    • willedav said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:08 pm

      yeah and now they are in Final Four.

  25. Bozo said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    Moronta is a beast. Shutting the fucking door with a slam.

    • Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 7:59 pm

      I was watching the hoops, what was going on after he struck out Machado?

      • zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:07 pm

        The Padres complained his glove was too light of a color.

      • zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:08 pm

        I guesss there’s a rule.

      • Bozo said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:12 pm

        Changed gloves and struck out the rest of em.

      • Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:12 pm

        Thanks.

      • Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:16 pm

        Right on, Bozo. And more beastin’ in the 7th.

  26. alleykat69 said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:10 pm

    He’s still a rodent!!

  27. alleykat69 said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    Moronta has to be the closer on this team.I don’t know why they keep dickin him around.Maybe cause they can’t get a lead normally to give him the ball for the 9th?

    • zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:31 pm

      He pitched in a crucial situation tonight. That was good.

  28. chipower9 said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:21 pm

    Some crazy assed hoops games. Damn. And tune in to see our buys have a lead. Need to get another, here.

  29. chipower9 said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    Pathetic that they couldn’t get a run in there…

  30. zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    The new guys are running into teammates on defense.

  31. Bozo said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    I’m not sure why Reed bothers to take a bat with him when he’s up.

  32. alleykat69 said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Michael Reed=Casey McGhee

  33. Bozo said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:53 pm

    Ball game.

  34. alleykat69 said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    Giants win the Giantssss win!!!!

  35. Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    Victory!

  36. willedav said, on March 30, 2019 at 8:58 pm

    smith closes them out making the young Pads hitters look silly and overmatched. Pads are “legit” for 3rd place if they’re lucky. Really young team, with lot to learn. They always have top prospects, lot of whom lately haven’t cut it. this is why Kinsler is here and maybe why they overpaid for Myers (who doesn’t hit everyone else like SF) and Hosmer who no one else offered a multi year contract.

  37. willedav said, on March 30, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Didn’t see him but Baggs on twitter was raving about Moronta, with same 97 heat new change up and command to go with them.

  38. zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    3rd place isn’t bad behind the Dodgers and Rockies.

    • zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 9:05 pm

      Talking about the Padres.

    • willedav said, on March 30, 2019 at 10:02 pm

      Sure, but they were as bad as SF last year. Hey, they’re playing all their young guys and giving them a shot–some might be OK but their past guys haven’t much worked out. Their O was just as bad as SF last year too. Pirela Margot Asuaje all wound up sucking and they dumped the Villanueva guy at 3b, Freddy Galvis too. The Urias kid they were high on didn’t hit last year or in spring and is back in AAA.
      The Tatis kid has never hit pitching above AA ball. Lot of tools, but K’d a ton at AA.
      Like the Giants, Pads could just as easily finish last again, with Machado.

      • zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 10:39 pm

        Tatis has looked very good so far.

  39. zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 9:08 pm

    Rockies’ Murphy broke a finger.

  40. zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 9:10 pm

    It’s brutal that Baer starts the Giants on the road every season.

    • Macdog said, on March 30, 2019 at 9:13 pm

      Maybe that will no longer be the case after this season.

    • djloo27 said, on March 31, 2019 at 4:42 am

      Well, it gives him a wider variety of chairs to knock his wife over…

  41. willedav said, on March 30, 2019 at 10:27 pm

    The Padres owe Hosmer $20 mil this year and another 3 after that. He was worse than Belt last year (!) in Belt’s worst season and makes $5 mil more than Belt does.
    Myers is bargain this year but owed $22 mil for the next 3 seasons. He played 83 games last year total and hit 11 HRs for a team that lost 96 games.

  42. zumiee said, on March 30, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    The Dodgers are averaging about 11 runs a game so far.

    • djloo27 said, on March 31, 2019 at 4:58 am

      They’re also on pace to hit 702 homers…

  43. djloo27 said, on March 31, 2019 at 5:05 am

    And another guy on life support after an altercation in Dodger parking lot…
