Bombs, Bad Breaks and Beatles

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 11, 2019

They hit 13 home runs in the AZ/Philly game last night. THIRTEEN. In a 9 inning game with the wind barely blowing out. Nearly half their total hits were bombs (13/27). This has gotten beyond stupid. The game has been changed to unrecognizable. The Giants are light years behind how baseball is played today and there’s a weird part of me that’s cool with that…..

As I suspected when it happened, it now looks like KD has torn his achilles. That is terrible. This guy comes back with what we now know was a badly injured leg and literally blows his career. I know it was KD’s decision to play but I hope the Dr’s warned him of the risks and didn’t say anything like “you can’t hurt it more than it’s already hurt.”— by the way, that is one of the dumber things I’ve ever heard. Of course you can hurt something worse. If you weaken  or injure a muscle or tendon it puts all the muscles and tendons around it at risk. Achilles are especially vulnerable.

My top 5 worst Beatles songs:

5. Strawberry Road

4. ObLaDi, ObLaDa

3. Sargent Peppers Lonely Hearts

2. Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds

1. Love Me Do. Nothing but word salad nonsense. They should change the name of the tune to “Love Me Do Not Play That Song On The Radio Ever Again”.

Feel free to list your TOP 5, I know there are people out there who like the Beatles and maybe I’ll gain some perspective on the reasons why if I hear about some of their good songs.

    Of course we will be no-hit the rest of the game.

    There’s NO WAY Bochy would take out a veteran pitcher in the 5th who has a chance to get a win.

    Melonhead looks like Big Sweaty.

    Here’s how you play it

    • zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 8:52 pm

      That’s awesome, although the chainsaw scared me a little.

    • unca_chuck said, on June 11, 2019 at 8:57 pm

      As crazy as that band was, they had some excellent musicians. BIll Spooner, Prairie Prince, Michael Cotten, and Roger Steen were always on point. Some of their jazzier stuff was very Zappa-esque

    Melonhead already looks gassed in the pen.

  6. alleykat69 said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    And now it’s Sweaty time, to give up a few bonus runs for the Padres..

    From the window of your rented limousine
    I saw your pretty blue eyes
    One day soon you’re gonna reach sixteen
    Painted lady in the city of lies

    Fuuuuuuck. Wasted oppos. We get a hit with risp. No score. We get a fly bal w/a runner at 3rd, no score.

      Sick Again!

  10. unca_chuck said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:16 pm

    Hey!!! That’s why you send the back runner.

  11. willedav said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    yaha Longo whacks one into the corner and the Pads f up the relay. 5-4 Giants!

  12. unca_chuck said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    Foolish but it worked.

  13. Bozo said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    Might not be pretty, but it worked.

  14. zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    I love the shock in Kuiper’s voice when Longoria got the big hit.

  15. willedav said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    Insurance run on the sac fly. Pablo hammered that.

  16. zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    A thirty-something Ringo Starr had a hit with a cover version of “You’re Sixteen, You’re Beautiful, And You’re Mine” and nobody batted an eye about it. Seems odd in retrospect. A different pop culture era in those days, though.

    SNL did a skit a while back, parodying a commercial for a ’50s rocker’s hits, except all the songs were creepy lyrics about dating young girls, it was pretty funny.

  18. alleykat69 said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:32 pm

    2 quick outs and the 5th pitch blasted🚀

  19. Macdog said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

    Nice comeback win!
    Longo great catch on a sure double
    Smith just filthy as always!!

  21. willedav said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:49 pm

    Padres singing the Strawberry Road blues.

  22. zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:50 pm

    Funny sketch, Mac!

    • zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:53 pm

      And disturbing.

      • zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:55 pm

        A satirical point well made.

    • Macdog said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:55 pm

      Haha, that’s the one!

    • xoot said, on June 11, 2019 at 11:21 pm

      Jerry Lee Lewis married his 13 year old cousin. Like Edgar Allan Poe a friend of mine used to say, in defense.

  23. unca_chuck said, on June 11, 2019 at 9:55 pm

    As lost as our season is, would you rather be a Padre fan? Once again they struggle to be relevant as they hover around ,500 and they just dumped $300 mill on Machado.

    • zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 10:02 pm

      Padres fans thought they were playoff bound this season. Doh!!

    • djloo27 said, on June 11, 2019 at 10:17 pm

      At least when the Giants waste $300 million, they spread it around…

  24. unca_chuck said, on June 11, 2019 at 10:00 pm

    And we haven’t even mentioned Pink Floyd.

    • zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 10:13 pm

      I think the first time I heard The Wall album was at a campground. A young couple nearby played the whole album on a cassette player. The album was clearly great. I was pretty mesmerized by it. I never ended up buying it, though. I was already realizing you can’t have every album you want. In that era before YouTube.

    Well, I just got into town about an hour ago
    Took a look around, see which way the wind blow
    Where the little girls in their Hollywood bungalows

    Are you a lucky little lady in the City of Light
    Or just another lost angel?
    City of Night, City of Night
    City of Night, City of Night, woo, c’mon…

  26. willedav said, on June 11, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    Good question Unc, maybe we can talk more about them tmw.
    They paid Hosmer $21 mil last year, owe him same this year and 3 more after that. He’s not better than Belt and makes even more money.
    Myers salary next year goes up to $22.5 for next 3 and then one more at $20. They owe him $87mil still.
    Ian Kinsler at 2b? wow holding a place I guess but for whom?
    Like everyone not named dodgers, just seem like second tier in division and not serious threat.

    • djloo27 said, on June 11, 2019 at 10:28 pm

      For No One…

  27. zumiee said, on June 11, 2019 at 11:01 pm

    Rough night for the Dodgers. They lost, and Seager pulled a hamstring.

    • snarkk said, on June 11, 2019 at 11:20 pm

      They’ll prolly win 7 of the next 8 now…

  28. mrsprtdude said, on June 11, 2019 at 11:51 pm

    Yay Clint. Right now the Pads are a LOT closer to the playoffs then SF is. Love the Beatles! Sgt peppers one of the best albums ever. The wife and I are seeing McCartney at Dodger stadium in July!

    • zumiee said, on June 12, 2019 at 5:08 am

      Very cool!
