Deadline Coming

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 28, 2019

The reasons to sell are obvious. We are chasing a pipe dream just to maybe get to play a 1 game play-in. Hey, that game is great but is it worth it to risk our future for one game?And once the August swoon kicks in and we regress back to who we are we’re going to feel like idiots when we finish near the back of the WC chase and held on to our few appealing trade pieces.

Trade everyone.

    Yes Zum agree with your 5:13 and you’ve been saying this for a while. Giants to me have established they are better than the Pads (without spending $300 mil on Machado) and Rockies, plus the Mets Marlins Reds and Pirates. they aren’t finishing last and they will win lot more than 65 games with the new group/younger players. Lot of doom predicted like the road trip to MIL and Colo, playing supposedly better teams like Brewers Cards Cubs, and Giants have handled all of them. Maddon spoke glowingly of team Bochy and the fans, and used words like playoff atmosphere for the series out here.

    Tampa bay trades RHP Hunter Wood to Cleveland for minor league OF Ruben Cardenas.Indians also get ex Giant Christian Arroyo, oh the mighty have fallen in the still only 24 Arroyo..,

      Yeah, Giants picked Arroyo in the first round. The other teams didn’t project him as a first-rounder.

      • alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2019 at 6:16 pm

        Yep and they were right.Another failed attempt in the Sabes/Evans regime..

    For the flight to Philly, the Giants have a dress-up theme. Dress like Pablo Sandoval, which means a lot of bright colors. This team is having fun these days.
    Here’s a KNBR article. Scroll down to see the team photo.

      Instead of wearing his type of clothes, they should all start to hit like him when he pinch hits…

      thx that’s pretty funny especially the team photo one from Pillar.

    I think it’s great 👍 this team is loose and playing with a lot of confidence!

    If not for the 3 titles no one here would be condoning a a sell-off.
    Who the fuck do we think we are?

    • snarkk said, on July 28, 2019 at 7:09 pm

      But, we’ve got 3 titles…

      • sandog said, on July 28, 2019 at 7:22 pm

        If we get offered a nice package for someone….then sell. If teams are lowballing us (and I get the feeling they are) then stand pat.
        No buying.

    This is the time when every GM has a phone in both ears and a speaker phone with multiple more GM’s on hold.As they all try with their best Monty Hall impression of “Let’s make a Deal”

    Shooter loose at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Another day in the U.S.

  8. unca_chuck said, on July 28, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    Shit, at least 3 dead and 12 injured at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. So far. My pregnant niece was there but she’s fine, thank God. The way it is being described, it was either an automatic or bump-stock equipped rifle.

  9. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    Wow 😮 that sucks.Ive been to 4 Gilroy Garlic Festivals over the years, never an issue,3 dead 12 injured and a shooter not in custody?

    • unca_chuck said, on July 28, 2019 at 10:41 pm

      The shooter is dead according to the latest report. 4 dead, including him. But there may have been an accomplice.

  10. unca_chuck said, on July 28, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    Just found out one of my cousins was there. Safe as well. Yeah, I haven’t been for a long time
    but we used to go fairly regularly.

  11. navypack said, on July 29, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    I count 32 games vs teams above us (Cubs, A’s, Redsoxs, Braves, Nats, Dodgers) and 24 games below us.

    SELL!
