The Team Stayed Together! YAAYYY!!!! Now What?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 2, 2019

As we enter August, we now might have to helplessly watch the slow implosion of our young pitchers. DRod is a mess, I’m not really talking about him. But Shaun Anderson and Black Shoes Beede, 2 guys who must pitch well if we are going to keep the dream of .700 ball alive, are headed into some uncharted dog days. Anderson pitched 141 innings in 2018 and 109.2 so far this year, Beede only 87 innings last year, 104.2 this year. The good news there is that the Giants have never been too keen on limiting young pitchers innings, although that could change with Young Z at the helm. We shall see.

I read Kat at the end of the last thread saying Pillar hasn’t had a day off since June 11. The way that guy plays? Absolutely criminal and negligent of Bochy to do that.

I thought the last trip through Colorado would go poorly and they swept. For some reason we are right back in Nepal. Pretty quick turnaround. This one looks ominous…..

      Thanks Blade for finding that! That’s a long list of midgets manning 1B over the years..

  2. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:28 pm

    Scooter-bye!

  3. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:28 pm

    Scooter welcome to the HR club in SF!!

  4. Macdog said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    Scooty!

  5. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:33 pm

    That’s the perfect start for Madbum to get early run support for a change..

  6. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:34 pm

    Panik back at hotel:

    • alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:44 pm

      Well I’m leaving on a jet plane, don’t know if all be back again…

    • Macdog said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:02 pm

      Yeah, he might want to change the last letter of his name to a c.

  7. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:55 pm

    WTF Duggar?

    • willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:57 pm

      vanilla triangle strikes again.
      Nice grab by Slater though. Just can’t give Rox extra outs here.

  8. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:55 pm

    Jesus Duggar pull your head out of your ass!

  9. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 5:59 pm

    Duggar better stay clear of Bum in the dugout ..

  10. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:01 pm

    Vogt’s gonna get that run back for us…

    • willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:08 pm

      half way there!

  11. willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    gonna take more than 4 runs to win this game. Giants have let Gray off the hook since big inning.
    Bum helps himself.

  12. zumiee said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    I think Duggar had trouble with the sun on the missed fly. There was bright reflection on his sunglasses.

  13. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    2 on no outs they better add on this inning..

  14. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    I guess in this park you don’t even consider a sac bunt…

    • djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:53 pm

      Too bad…

  15. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    Yeah the Sac bunt would of been nice now,beats a DP.Unbelievable how shitty that inning turned out..

  16. willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    Too many ground ball outs with guys on tonight.
    And there it goes. Knew Rox were gonna get some more with top of LU getting couple more ABs each.

  17. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    That was almost a guarantee after the screwed up..

  18. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    Blehhhhh! This team can’t get rid of Crawfish fast enough.

    Oh fuck me sideways.

  19. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    Pathetic. Scooter blew that shit.

  20. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    Maybe Panik can unpack that suitcase 🧳 after all..

  21. Macdog said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    Two gift runs so far . . . hey, Duggar saves a couple.

  22. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    Jesus. Fucking awful. July looks like the anomaly

  23. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:09 pm

    They just can’t help themselves.They just can’t put a team away with their many opportunities..

  24. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    Predictable

  25. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    Huh a foot inside is a strike. I want belt to swing, but shit…

  26. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    This is an important fuckin’ game…

  27. willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    jeez this chump hitting .216 with the .575 OPS steps out after every pitch to adjust the batting gloves tap the spikes set the back foot in the box yada yada. If this wasn’t close game they should buzz this fool.

  28. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    Is Blackmon up every inning?

  29. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    Yep, DJ. They need this one, esp after blowing a 4 run lead.

  30. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    fuck fuck fuck fuck

  31. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    Fucking A, that chump was all over the place and 3-0 need that tying run at second and they give Crawgump the fucking green light!! Fucking stupid!!!

    • Macdog said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:48 pm

      What a frustrating game, chances every inning and zilch since the 1st.

      • djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:51 pm

        Sure is.
        Good game to pause and jerk off quick just to right yourself…

      • Stan Shell said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:07 pm

        To Loo:
        Huh?

        OSF

  32. willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    there it is toots singing Pressure Drop on Coors commercial
    wow

  33. Macdog said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Alright Buster!

  34. willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    yeah the pressure gonna drop on you! Posey doubles Giants retake lead

  35. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Great AB by Posey!
    Jerking off works!

  36. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Great AB for Buster!!
    Maybe his best hit of the year!

  37. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    I feel less tension Loo..

  38. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:06 pm

    Is that Sam Howard or Moe Howard?

  39. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    This team just can’t ever make it easy.

  40. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    Yeah time to pull some more hair..

  41. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    Of course.

  42. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    That pitch must’ve looked like a fuckin’ watermelon to Hampson…

    • alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:20 pm

      🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉

    • willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:20 pm

      No way they resign Watson. Not sure he can last 2 more months.

  43. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    Jeeeeeebus.

  44. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:19 pm

  45. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    fucking torture.

  46. Flavor said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    I just got in from 11 motherfucking hours of driving, fuck that shit I’m too big to drive that many hours straight. Would be nice to finish this long ass day off with a win or my thread tomorrow is going to be extra salty.

    • djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:30 pm

      That is nuts.
      You can’t be doin’ that, Flavor…

      • Flavor said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:34 pm

        Oh I be doin’ that. Woke up this morning, felt like I needed to get back into my routine, said “fuck it” and left a day early and came straight home instead of stopping in Reno.

  47. zumiee said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:32 pm

    When I was younger I did the 14 hour drive to Seattle a few times. Wouldn’t want to do it nowadays.

  48. djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    How long has Posey been holding the bat straight up like that?

  49. Flavor said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    Posey rolling one to third. Has this been the norm?

    • willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:52 pm

      Uh you missed something pretty important earlier.

  50. Flavor said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:37 pm

    I’m basing my entire opinion about Belt’s SF career on this one at bat

  51. Flavor said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:38 pm

    Pathetic. Fuck him.

  52. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:38 pm

    Goddam you Belt!!

  53. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:39 pm

    Yup. The ONE time you want him to work the count for a walk, he pops out.

  54. Flavor said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    slumpy shouldered fuck

  55. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    Will better be on his feed tonight.

  56. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:41 pm

    Longest drive for me was SF to Aspen, Colo. 22 hours, with a little assistance.

    • djloo27 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:46 pm

      • unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:49 pm

        Heh heh. No needles. Just some bumps to get to the ski area.

  57. alleykat69 said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:44 pm

  58. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:45 pm

  61. willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    man the awesome back foot slider to K Story (who kills us). Still one big one to get.
    why is Arenado always up with game on the line?

  62. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Yeah did a lot of 15-18 hour drives to Utah and Idaho, and a horrific 15 hour drive from Roseville to Palm Springs.

  63. Flavor said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Feels like a Rob Nen inning right now….

  64. unca_chuck said, on August 3, 2019 at 8:51 pm

  72. Flavor said, on August 3, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    As much as I am sad we didn’t trade anything and everything of value I do enjoy games like this, games that matter.

  73. willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    Btw Vogt and Posey tonight:
    3 for 6 plus a walk 2 doubles (1 each)
    2 rbis both Posey game winner
    This is a position of strength

  74. willedav said, on August 3, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    wasn’t easy but 4 shutout innings from pen. coonrod gets win #1/smith save #27

  75. Macdog said, on August 3, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    Gerardo Parra pitched the 9th — or tried to — in the Nats’ blowout loss to the D-Backs, but gave up 5 runs on 1 hit and 4 walks without getting an out. His ERA is listed as -.–.
