Not Getting What I Want

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 26, 2019

I’ve nearly resigned myself to Bumgarner staying. And I’m ok with it. Disappointed, but ok. My stance is that we should improve the minor league system with anything substantial but if that offer isn’t out there for Bum I don’t want to just see him get moved for the sake of movement. And I do get the irritating emotional attachment the fans have to him. And the players would *revolt* apparently.

I left my emotional attachment to these guys in my past a long time ago. When Will left, that was kind of it for me. It was just too much to get attached and then watch them leave. I still love my team and there are players I’ll never forget but I don’t have that “No we can’t lose these guys!” mentality. I can watch *Giant greats* move on and play for other teams. I wanted to watch Bum do it one more time on the big stage and I think we’re going to lose that opportunity because of this fruitless wild card chase…..

Having said that, I could care less about TFLR, Watson or Dyson leaving. If those 3 bring back 2 legit guys who can play for us in a year or two I’m all for it. Hopefully they’re bats but we probably need starting pitching too, just like everyone else.

If we keep everyone? Eh, whatever. The minor league system will sort itself out, Zaidi is a stud who knows what he’s doing unlike the clueless Sabean/Evans tandem. It might take an extra year or two but that isn’t the worst thing in the world, right? Once the deadline passes quietly, we get to watch this *chase*. I think it’s going to peter out when the injuries start or, more likely, we just can’t sustain this incredible run anymore. But it might keep the dog days at bay, there’s something to be said for that…..

Tomorrow I’m going out of town for 10 days I don’t want to worry about this anymore. If history is any indication some major hammers are going to start to drop. Whenever I leave town shit goes down. Watch.

    Padres came through with great parting gifts for Bochy.. Five salt water Rod’s&Reels with a Lifetime Fishing License..a huge magnum of Silver Oak Cabernet,25 bottles of wine for the 25 man roster,a collage pictures of his San Diego playing days, along with the special tribute of his highlights of all his accomplishments with the club,,Nicely done!!

    • snarkk said, on July 26, 2019 at 11:34 pm

      A jeroboam of Silver Oak would be a nice Flapalooza starter…

    I’m late, but I’ll join in a serious RIP to Rutger Hauer.
    His Roy Batty was a huge part of one of my top 5 fav films ever, Blade Runner. Watch his Tears in Rain monologue a few times, each time you may see something different, feel something different. He didn’t write the entire monologue, but he edited it down and added some things. His final words were definitely better than the script. A brilliant one minute of film.
    BTW, Rutger and Roy both died in the same year, 2019…
