Take It Easy on Will Smeezy

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 16, 2019

Will Smith closed out the game yesterday. He was a little shaky. I wonder if that had anything to do with pitching for the 6th time in 9 days. Z is gonna have to grab Bochy by the ear hole and explain to him that Smith is one of our two golden gooses and that if he blows out his arm saving meaningless games there’s gonna be hell to pay.

Vogt gets the 1.0 for his two triples and overall stud game…..

    I’ll admit I’m all over watching the US Open at Pebble Beach.The golf has been amazing along with the always breathtaking views.
    But holy crap ola 2 triples by Vogt?? Has that ever been done before by a catcher?

    • Flavor said, on June 16, 2019 at 8:56 am

      Listening to Flem on radio, I think he said the last time was a catcher in the mid 80’s, don’t remember his name

      • zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 9:09 am

        Steve Nicosia. It was mentioned on the TV broadcast.

      • Flavor said, on June 16, 2019 at 9:12 am

        really? I’m not calling bullshit on that but he only had 3 for his career. Pretty incredible if he had 2 of those in 1 game.

        From the SF Chronicle:
        “The only Giants catcher since 1930 to hit two in a game before Vogt was Steve Nicosia (1984).”
        Krukow and Kuiper were in uniform that day.

    Flem on radio said before top 9 (only part of game I caught) that Bochy hesitated to use Smith and had Moronta warming up. At some point it would be interesting to see how Moronta handles save situation. As has been said many times, it’s not for everyone.

  3. alleykat69 said, on June 16, 2019 at 9:05 am

    When Smith gets traded you would think Moronta is the heir apparent so yes they should send him out their in the 9th to see if can handle it.Knowing Boch he might go back to closer by committee bs also go with lefties with Watson if not traded are maybe Bergen. Please ferchrissakes..No Melonoma are Dyson!!

    Front page of Chron John Shea has column denoting options on where Bum could be going. Mostly talks about team needs, not their farm systems or who might be coming back in return. Usual suspects at the top, Yanks Braves Stros Phils Brewers, followed by Twins Cards Rays. wonder what Brewers think after yesterday.

  5. willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 10:30 am

    Cursory look at Brewers, they hit the most bombs in the league and are 5th/6th for runs BA OPS yada yada.
    Their team ERA is 11th, and most other team stats no better than 10th, except for Ks where they are 2nd.
    Giants lit up Davies Friday and had15 hits yesterday. Anderson who goes today gave up 30 bombs last year in 158 innings and so far has given up 8 in 42 innings, about same pace.
    RH are batting .320 against him with .960 OPS.
    Gotta wonder about an upgrade if they want to stay on top on Central, and beyond.

  6. snarkk said, on June 16, 2019 at 11:12 am

    If Smith or Bum get hurt and cannot be traded, there will be hell to pay. There is no reason for Smith to be pitching 6 games in 9 days on a TJ repaired arm…

  7. snarkk said, on June 16, 2019 at 11:23 am

    I have no clue who this Woodland guy is leading the Open. Is he now a top player? The US Open has a history of having one hit wonder guys winning it, because the USGA tricks these courses up so much…

  8. willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 11:42 am

    Smith’s game log
    June 2
    June 7 (4 days off)
    June 9
    June 11
    June 12
    June 14
    June 15
    all 1 inning, only yesterday and one other 20+ pitches.

  9. alleykat69 said, on June 16, 2019 at 11:47 am

    He’s a good player Snarkk, hits the ball long,and his number 1 putting this week, not sure if the pressure going for his 1st major will get to him though.
    Rose,Kopekra, and McElroy all have done it before so it should be a exciting day! I’ll pull for Woodland he’s been Rock solid,but you can’t ingnore the experience factor of the others..

    • snarkk said, on June 16, 2019 at 11:51 am

      Thanks Kat. I used to pay attention to PGA, but no more. To me, these young guys all look the same, they hit it 325, wear dark glasses a lot, and have hot 36D girlfriends. And, BTW, they have no personality. Walking corporations. Give me Trevino and Arnie any day…

    I’m no golf fan, but I remember feeling bad when Tony Lima’s plane went down…

    • alleykat69 said, on June 16, 2019 at 1:45 pm

      Same with Payne Stewart when they all passed out in the plane due to a bad seal are something and they were just flying on auto pilot while fighter pilots could do nothing(unless they were in a populated area they might have lit them up) a helpless feeling as they finally ran out of fuel and crashed in a rural area..

  11. alleykat69 said, on June 16, 2019 at 1:55 pm

    Use to be the Giants stunk in June (June swoon)
    but last year they went 18-10 and this year so far 8-4 go figure?

    • willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 2:00 pm

      nice 5-2 homestand so far too even though they are still only 15-20 at the O.

  12. willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 1:56 pm

    brewer nation on twitter: enough with triples alley already.
    Pillar clutch long AB double and scores on Smrdz single up middle.

  13. zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 2:35 pm

    Smarj, 4 innings, 99 pitches. He’s zero fun to watch pitch.

  14. willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    Albers!

  15. willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 3:02 pm

    Man what an awful AB from Posey with sack loaded 0 out. Lets 2 low fastballs go by for strikes and then waves at slider off the plate, gone in 3 pitches. Yeow.

    • willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 3:04 pm

      4 pitches. fastball only at 91.

  16. zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 3:14 pm

    It’s hard to justify Posey and Craw’s bats in the lineup, other than the contracts.

    • zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 3:16 pm

      I know the Giants are hoping for those two to turn it around, but it’s not happening.

      • zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 3:17 pm

        Thanks for the memories, guys, but the team needs to turn the page.

  17. snarkk said, on June 16, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    How to explain decline of Craw and especially Posey into way less than mediocre batting? That’s nearly $40 million on the payroll, not doing much…

    • zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 4:12 pm

      They gave what they had physically to the Giants over the years, but their gas tanks are nearing E it looks like.

  18. zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 4:15 pm

    Longo basically sucks, too. There’s no magical turnaround coming.

  19. zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    We always circle back to how can Zaidi get rid of these guys, and there’s no ready answer.

  20. willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 4:33 pm

    second time in 3 game series rox closer Wade Davis blows save and gives up 3 runs in 9th. Score is 13-13.
    Pads starter gave up 9 runs in inning plus, rox starter gave up 8 in 3. Sherpa ball.

  21. willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    Rox signed Davis before last season, 3 yrs $52 mil. Ouch

    • willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 5:28 pm

      Pads came back and won 14-13. After Pads tied score on 2 walks single and triple, Rox took Davis out with 2 outs man on 3b. They intentionally walked 2 guys to load bases to get to the pitcher because Pads ran out of hitters, and then walked in winning run, charged to Davis. His ERA is now 5.21

  22. zumiee said, on June 16, 2019 at 5:15 pm

    Watching Ryu, I can’t figure out why he’s doing so well. His stuff doesn’t look all that special. He does keep his junkball pitch low in the strike zone, though.

  23. willedav said, on June 16, 2019 at 5:33 pm

    Giants are in LA, where Dodgers are 27-8 at home, for next 4 couple of them on ESPN. Tmw is Beede vs. Maeda.

  24. djloo27 said, on June 17, 2019 at 4:46 am

    Sick of Belt, too…
