You Need Two To Rival

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 19, 2019

It appears the *rivalry* took a night off. But come on, this should happen every time we play them. Their line up is dominant, the starting pitching rock solid. When I saw *Solano* leading off I just shook my head. Is there a  more forgettable Giant? He’s old, slow and weak. What he’s even doing on the roster baffles me and the fact that Bochy decided to lead him off is an indication of where Bochy is at these days.

Hill vs Pom Pom tonight. BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! I hope the *rivalry* fuels us a little or this one is going to be another 9 zip wipeout.

      Biggest non-sequiter in Flap History from Loo??

      • djloo27 said, on June 19, 2019 at 4:32 pm

        AHOFO!!!

    ABs I saw Solano (in for Panik) looked fine, as opposed to most of his teammates. He had long AB where he fouled off bunch of pitches with 2 strikes then Opie hung breaking ball outside and he poked into RF for single. I think at that time it was their second hit all night Did either of the LH IF do anything last night?

  3. willedav said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:08 am

    It would be nice to see Pillar in that spot though. I hate watching slop throwing Hill dominate. Opie I can respect, for what he has done for so long, at least in regular season.

    LA is 29-9 at home almost .800 winning pct, yet vs. SF only 3-2 and 6-5 on the year. Giants now 15-17 vs. division and they will see everyone else a lot in next couple weeks.

  5. unca_chuck said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:39 am

    The division games have been our undoing these last couple years. Now we are treading water but shitting the rest? Got it.

  6. dirtnrocksnomo said, on June 19, 2019 at 9:52 am

    I’m encouraged by the latest turn of the rotation. Hopefully these young arms can keep improving. Win today or tomorrow and its a split!

    • Flavor said, on June 19, 2019 at 10:00 am

      fuck that, win out and we get to 122 wins. Aim high or fuck off is my new moto. #AHOFO

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on June 19, 2019 at 10:12 am

        Sounds legit!

      • Bozo said, on June 19, 2019 at 10:34 am

        That there is some quotable shit, Mr. Flavor. I believe I’ll be using it in the near future..

      • Flavor said, on June 19, 2019 at 11:56 am

        It was designed to go viral so get in on the ground floor and then let the glory unfold from there

  7. djloo27 said, on June 19, 2019 at 9:56 am

    It’ll be interesting to see how they handle the staff after Bochy’s final game.
    Ax them all that night? Think they’re told in advance to start job hunting?

  8. gianthead said, on June 19, 2019 at 10:35 am

    Was a good game to not watch as I fled So Cal…back to the humidity:(

  9. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    Posey batting 4th is probably wearing on him, too. He’s probably wondering when Bochy will give him relief from that.

    • zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 2:50 pm

      His OPS is .704, his WAR is 0.3.

      • zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 2:52 pm

        0.3, the same WAR as Adam Jones. 🙂

      • Flavor said, on June 19, 2019 at 3:45 pm

        and significantly worse than our *stud* Longoria. WAR is stupid. Admit it.

  10. djloo27 said, on June 19, 2019 at 3:04 pm

    Cameron Maybin is very likely your AL Player of the week…

    • zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 3:18 pm

  11. unca_chuck said, on June 19, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    Jones 13 hrs 39 rbi .274 .322 . 488 .810

    vs

    Buster 3 hrs 18 rbi .251 .315 .389 . 704

    WAR, huh, good God y’all. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

    Buster is a solid catcher and calls a good game, but is his worth that dramatic when his offensive numbers are so pathetic?

    IOW, has Jones lost the DBs as many games with his defense as Buster has blown with his lack of offense?

    I’d say Buster leads that by a mile. If Buster had Jones’ numbers, we’d likely a lot closer to AZ than Miami.

    Buster should be in the negative based on his offensive stats if that is an actual thing.

  12. unca_chuck said, on June 19, 2019 at 3:50 pm

    How the hell is Longo a 1.5? 9 errors in 2.5 months? .237 .314 .406 slg .721?

    His offense AND defense suck. And he rates that?

  13. unca_chuck said, on June 19, 2019 at 3:54 pm

    I’m with Flav. I don’t get it.

  14. alleykat69 said, on June 19, 2019 at 3:56 pm

    And why do we have to keep being tortured watch Pomegranate pitch?
    Yeah 2 decent starts in a row doesn’t make up the suckitude that he is.
    They should just be pitching Bum,Thor,SharkBeede, Rodriguez..

    • djloo27 said, on June 19, 2019 at 4:29 pm

      They’re trying to build up his DFA value…

  15. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    This will sound like I’m making a big defense of Longoria, which I’m not, but he does have a lot of range at 3b, and WAR is influenced by range on defense.

    • Flavor said, on June 19, 2019 at 5:15 pm

      it’s overly influenced.

  16. alleykat69 said, on June 19, 2019 at 5:40 pm

    Longoria’s defense is far superior then last year.
    The guy who’s defense has really taken a nosedive is Pillar.He’s dropped alot of catchable balls, and I’m sure Toronto noticed his decline as well and decided to cut bait..

  17. dirtnrocksnomo said, on June 19, 2019 at 5:56 pm

    Some serious pitch framing going on here. He probably bats cleanup for his team

  18. xoot said, on June 19, 2019 at 6:04 pm

    All Star selection for position players should be determined by WAR at the position, on June 30. –Twinfan

    • Flavor said, on June 19, 2019 at 6:17 pm

      he was wrong about a lot of things.

      • djloo27 said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:11 pm

        1,016 e-mails…

  19. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    The Dodgers started their scrubini lineup tonight, which is, of course, better than the Giants A lineup.

  20. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:22 pm

    Bryan Reynolds, 3 for 4 tonight, hit an HR, is now hitting .362.
    I can say with 100% confidence that Zaidi would have never traded him away.

  21. alleykat69 said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    Ballgame ! You suck Pomegranate like I knew you would tonight..

  22. gianthead said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:33 pm

    Why do pitchers let Bellinger sit right on top of the plate? Especially a lefty? He should be throwing hard and inside to get off the plate and send a message. .

  23. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:34 pm

    Crap signing by Zaidi on that one. Pom needs to be gone.

  24. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:39 pm

    Stumbled upon an old Firestone commercial on Youtube that I remember as a kid: “Wherever wheels are turning…. etc. etc. Where the rubber meets the road”… Most of us here have been patient and even appreciative of Z’s moves so far. He’s about to get his first big test, what with suddenly the pundits and Flappers talking up MadBum and Smith as a double-combo blockbuster waiting to happen. “Rubber, meet road” time for Z-man…

  25. alleykat69 said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:42 pm

    To bad the Dodgers couldnt use Pom to pitch to the Giants, we could get right back in this game..

    • zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:44 pm

      Yeah, the Giants hitters have the disadvantage of not getting to face that tomato can.

  26. unca_chuck said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    They play Posey like they used to play Johnny Disaster.

  27. snarkk said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    Giants cannot compete over the long haul with teams like LA that bomb the S out of the ball. They need power bats, that’s where the league is now, and for foreseeable future. The power vacuum of SF vs. Dodgers and rest of league is mind-boggling, especially with this juiced ball…

    • Flavor said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:58 pm

      exactly. Every time I hear Flemm drone on and on about a *good at bat* that ended in an out or whatever I want to punch him in the face. The game is about the long ball now. There is no going back…..

      • snarkk said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:05 pm

        Almost every position guy on LA has potential to jack one at any time. They swing for the downs, they don’t give an S about a “good AB”. The game that existed in 2010 is a distant memory. And the Latrine isn’t, or wasn’t, even considered a hitters yard before…

      • snarkk said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:10 pm

        I’ve turned on Belt a bit. He’s one of the few Giants that can jack one out with any consistency. He might as well forget this OBP nonsense, and getting to 3-2 counts to take a walk. I’ve changed from questioning why he just doesn’t block pitches down the 3rd base line against the shift for doubles. He ought to just swing for the downs all night long, every night…

  28. snarkk said, on June 19, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    As if on cue, there’s another one…

  29. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    Bochy’s like, who cares. Keep pitching, Pom.

  30. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:23 pm

    “Hill vs Pom Pom tonight. BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! I hope the *rivalry* fuels us a little or this one is going to be another 9 zip wipeout.”

    And it happened as predicted.

  31. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:25 pm

    Not so long ago, Giants had lineups full of hitters who *could* jack one out at any time. ’02, Bonds Kent Sanders Santiago Aurelia Snow… 2010, Posey Pablo Uribe Renteria Huff… Think of some of the big post-season games they won with the long ball (Rent Buster Uribe Ishi Pablo Crawford Gilaspie). Those weren’t all prototypical HR hitters but they would do it often enough. Why these current guys can’t do it, I don’t know…

  32. snarkk said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:25 pm

    There’s one for the Giants ! …

  33. snarkk said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:29 pm

    How many is Bochy letting Pom give up before pulling his aszzz ? …

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:49 pm

      Aiming for another forfeit score…

  34. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    Bochy woke up.

  35. djloo27 said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:50 pm

  36. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Hopefully D-Rod pitches well. That would be something positive tonight.

  37. djloo27 said, on June 19, 2019 at 9:04 pm

    The upside of getting blown out is that Will Smith gets some rest…

  38. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 9:06 pm

    Yaz does good.

  39. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    Posey’s OPS is .692 now. K&K don’t even talk about him anymore. They’ve given up on him.

    • djloo27 said, on June 19, 2019 at 9:21 pm

      Yelich & Bellinger’s SPs alone are higher than that…

  40. zumiee said, on June 19, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    The ump blew the strike 3 call on Bellinger. Give me the electronic ump.

  41. unca_chuck said, on June 19, 2019 at 10:28 pm

    And the obligatory bomb after.

    What does Boch think when he sees the cf and rf play Posey like a pitcher? There’s my 4-hole guy?

    • djloo27 said, on June 20, 2019 at 4:12 am

      Just a classic case of a catcher breaking down physically around age 30.
      Give Bart an outfielder’s glove ASAP…
