Sinking…..

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 7, 2019

Another boring game in the books. Diggity mentioned something about the Giants on the cusp of a record, biggest difference between runs scored at home vs the road, something like that? Anyone got a link to that?

Another one of our kids going today. Another reason why expecting prolonged production from these guys through the Summer was poppycock. Young arms aren’t grown the way they used to be grown. They’re soft. Pitch counts. Lots of stats and delicate arm angles. The last Great young Giant pitcher to man his way through the season was Bum. Guys like D-Rod, Suarez, Beede, Anderson, Mendez, etc….hey they might figure out how to pitch a full season at a high octane level at some point. Until they do my expectations will remain low, for them and the team…..

    The problem is that Beede and Stratton and some others were first round picks. Passed on Beuhler. Misfired on that.

    • Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 7:38 am

      agreed. And it could just be that our young pitchers just aren’t any good. But one sign that they aren’t very good COULD BE that they all wilt as the Summer wears on….

    You know what I don’t get? Kurt Suzuki has been around since 2007 (35 years old) and the dude rakes. Not just this year, but last year too. He’s having a sort of renaissance in his mid 30s, while Posey seems kaput at age 32 (and he was no great shakes last season either). Same deal with our Vogt, who at age 34 is embarrassing Posey.

    • Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:14 am

      i mean, it could be a million things: different injuries, genetics, circumstances, *supplements*, etc….

  3. unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:05 am

    Yeah, Dog, I ran across a picture of Allison holding the ball that Panik hit. And a twitter pic of Matt, Allison and Matt’s cousin (I think) holding the ball. Can’t find the pic of Matt with Panik tho. Good stuff.

    cool scene in the booth

    • alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:25 am

      Krukow looks about as excited as a turd 💩 in a punch bowl on the Bonds Record Breaking Homer..

      • djloo27 said, on August 7, 2019 at 11:14 am

        Why would a turd not be excited to be in a punch bowl?
        Seems like a nice upgrade…

  5. willedav said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:21 am

    Panik had a season with .768 OPS and 10 bombs, all on the road. since then imo injuries and pitchers adjusted, and with the shift he has never been able to solve it. That game winner knock vs. Cubs, line drive down the line to LF, stands out just because he rarely did things like that. Good field, no hit.

    That Bonds HR game sucked. the Nats (who were awful then) came back and won it after he left.

    I’m OK with letting Beede Anderson and Menez yada yada continue to start games. This is how they figure things out and for Giants to work with them. Notice when Coonrod was imploding the other night, Young came to mound but Posey did most of the talking. Kid did manage to K couple guys after Giants lost an easy flyball out that scored another run.
    Let em play.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:40 am

      Who else are they going to pitch? So yeah, I agree with you. I think Flav’s point is that none of these guys are “world beaters” and wont amount to much. I absolutely agree with that. Stratton, DRod, and Saurez NEVER impressed me. Less harsh on Beede, but he’s a head case in my opinion and has shown to date, that he will never harness outstanding pitches. The dude has been given so many chances to produce and for the most part, has failed.

      . . . but again, who else are they going to throw out there? Same deal with the hitters more or less. Consequently, Farhan sticks someone on the roster to determine if he can fill a hole in the interim until we produce or acquire prospects. Willie, yeah, I don’t get why Atlanta got rid of Suzuki. Maybe they had a stud prospect coming up. Too lazy to check.

  6. willedav said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:32 am

    Suzuki, who for some reason is another guy that kills SF, was great pick up by Nats. Didn’t Braves have him before that? why let him go?

  7. alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:45 am

    I agree let them play.Continue to let Anderson,Beede,Menez to develop, it’s a process that takes time and patience but in the long run they should be rewarded.And that’s what they should be doing with Jaylin Davis he’s the future now, not the Slater’s,Pillar’s ,the Dick’s..Still think the Giants showed no future vision( especially with Dick out)by not bringing him up for this crucial 7 game stretch and had him leading off and Solano right behind him..There’s your spark, not a decrepit Belt up wasting a quick out.

  8. Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:47 am

    miss these days.

  9. snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:50 am

    ZMan will take the opportunity as the team slides towards a less than .500 finish to keep evaluating talent v real MLB opposition. That’s his main job the next 7 weeks. It will educate him on what this organization needs to do in the offseason and next years. He’s looking down the road 2 seasons from now. These young guys should pitch, see what they’re about. Currently, not much. Maybe they’ll grow, maybe not. Time to find out…

  10. blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 8:58 am

    RHP Joe Ross (1-3, 8.10 ERA, 1.93 WHIP) starts against the Giants today. Nats must be very confident against us (lqtm).

  11. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 9:06 am

    We’ll probably never know if there was any kind of real pressure from anyone (higher-ups, players) on Z to keep the team more or less together for the rest of this season, and/or if that pressure went against his instinct and thinking to make the big trades at the deadline, but one thing is likely — if there was such pressure, and if the team continues this August slip-slidin’ away that started right after the deadline, that’s the last time he’ll succumb to others’ viewpoints. FB housewives be damned. Let Timmy smoke. Let Z-Man trade.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 9:14 am

      We now have 4 teams in front of us for the second Wild Card. Couple that with the Reds winning 3 in a row and having a way, way better run differential than us (+37 versus our -61), I suspect that we will have 5 teams in front of us by the end of this weekend, if not sooner.

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 9:16 am

        Yeah, that run differential thing is pretty telling….

      • Macdog said, on August 7, 2019 at 10:17 am

        Five teams, so it’s even more daunting.

  12. alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 9:18 am

    Shit I thought Suzuki is even older then when Kawasaki motorcycles came out..

    • snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 9:36 am

      If Suzuki is 35, it really does make you wonder what the hell has happened to Posey, at 32?…

      • unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:15 pm

        The leg injury was the kicker. Throw in a ton of foul balls to the head and there you go. Maybe some guys take shots to the noggin better than others (not Belt and Panik apparently), but really.

        Didn’t the A.s have Suzuki 12 years ago?

  13. alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 9:40 am

    Cant wait for another week of Vogt playing LF and leading off! That’s about as creative as “Big Heads” brain 🧠 functions at this point…

  14. snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 10:04 am

    Bochy says this morning that SF will be Dickless for at least another week beyond the weekend. Not improving as had been hoped. If this offense is dependent for energy on a guy most of us never heard of until he showed up two months ago, that’s no bueno…

  15. blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 10:50 am

    Acknowledging Mac’s correction, i.e., we already have 5 teams in front of us for the Wild Card 2 . . . but we still have a 1.4% shot of making the playoffs. lol

  16. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 10:57 am

    I’m kinda pissed MLB eliminated the waiver wire trades. Would’ve liked to see what Z could do with that.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 11:04 am

      Yeah, I said the same thing about 1 week ago. I think it will change next season to the way it was. I have read a number of articles and columns indicating that most, if not all MLB teams hate this revision.

  17. blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 11:46 am

    Woo Hoo! Got an offer (almost full price) on my condo. I think I will accept it.

    • Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:04 pm

      Nice! water damage usually scares off buyers. I’m assuming you disclosed all that. 🙂

      • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:11 pm

        State law. Actually, this is really weird – I received a letter from the potential buyer’s son last week before my condo was listed, indicating that his mother was the de facto baby sitter for their family, but lived across town and wanted to be closer to them. She and him had been eyeing our complex and sent out a few letters to condo units they were specifically interested in. Fast forward to yesterday, I spoke with him and told him that ironically I was listing my place and after he checked in with my realtor, they could visit and look at my place. Apparently, they fell in love with it and made the offer this morning. Regarding the water damage, I told him about it yesterday and also, it is in the listing disclosure form.

      • Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:22 pm

        i know, I was kidding. It would have been dumb to not disclose it but some dumb people are, well….dumb.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:08 pm

      Congrats Blade!
      It sure is a very nice condo, and everything walking distance is a selling point as well…

      • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:12 pm

        Thanks AK! So happy to sell it so quick.

    • unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:20 pm

      That’s awesome, Blade! You moving to Hawaii?

      • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:32 pm

        Not immediately, but eventually I want to move either there (big island) or Brookings, Oregon. A good friend of mine owns a beautiful Tudor/bungalow style brick home in downtown Denver. She is giving me a very inexpensive offer to move in with her. So, I might bounce there for a few months to a year. Bonehead is leading us into recession and my plan at least is to be all cash until Armageddon hits and than swoop in for a cheap real estate deal.

      • unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 2:03 pm

        Heh heh. The same thought has crossed my mind. The price of gold will be skyrocketing soon I’m afraid,

  18. unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:20 pm

    I’m sure y’all remember the story of how Clark got drafted by the Niners.

    Walsh was there scouting Scott Fuller, and he needed someone to throw to. Clark was around, and Fuller spent the session throwing to him. Walsh said ‘the ball never hit the ground” iirc.

    The other story out of this is that Walsh had to be talked out of taking Fuller over Montana by Scott McVay.

    • Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:23 pm

      wow I didn’t know about that story.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:36 pm

      I remember the story about Walsh visiting the Clemson campus scouting Fuller and was impressed by Clark.Didnt know about McVay talking Walsh out of Fuller.Pretty impressive by McVay outthinking the Genius and drafting Montana, seemed to work out pretty good with the chicken leg kid from Notre Dame..

      • unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 1:45 pm

        Depending on who you talk to, that story is a bit of a myth. There are stories that Walsh wanted Steve Dills out of Stanford, Fuller from Clemson, and Phil Simms from Morehead state iirc. But other reports say Walsh knew Dills was a career backup, Fuller wan’t much better, and Simms was gone, so they were kind of in a holding pattern around who to pick in the 3rd round.

        Walsh asked McVay, ‘do you know anyone at Notre Dame?’ McVay said ‘yeah, assistant coach Jimmy Gruden (Jay and Chuckie’s dad)’. Walsh said ‘call him’. McVay called and asked about Montana and Jimmy Gruden said ‘Draft him!” The rest . . .

        I see we are getting lit up again. Their AA pitcher is smoking us I bet.

  19. alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:50 pm

    What a joke.Bochy is now saying(too late) that the bench guys will see more playing time going forward.Belt,Longo,Sando will be interchangeable and Vogt LOL 😂 will see more starts in LF!! Are you fucking kidding me?? And nothing about Davis..Whatever Boch..

    • Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 12:55 pm

      he’s a 1-trick pony. It’s the only way he knows.

  23. unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    AK, one of the many shows about the Niners was too funny. Therew as some show were they were talking to the lo linemen. They were all talking about Montana, and they are giving their glowing remarks, and they get around to nicknames. I’m thinking Joe Cool. Super Joe, etc.

    The interviewer asks, ‘what did you guys call Joe?’ They all shout out “Bird legs!” They all laughed like shit and commented on how skinny his legs were.

  24. alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 2:10 pm

    Looks like Duggar might have separated his shoulder again on that nice catch.Should give more playing opportunities for Vogt in Left are Right..

    • unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 2:16 pm

      I see Joe Ross is sporting an 8.10 era. 1 hit through 4.

  25. unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 2:18 pm

    • alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:15 pm

  29. unca_chuck said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:02 pm

    It’s like the question, Dwight Clark caught the last 49er pass in the 1981 championship game vs Dallas. Who caught the first?

  30. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Just curious, as I’m not seeing the games, but are fans showing their displeasure with the offense (which sucks)? Any boos?

    • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:51 pm

      I just got home Paul, so was watching on Gamecast.

  31. snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:36 pm

    This series has been embarrassing.
    Giants so called hitters getting shut down again today by a pitcher who’s a tomato can for the rest of the league is par for the course.
    SF’s lack of consistent power is just a killer, 14th out of 15 in NL, Nats are 9th with 34 more dingers…

  32. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:43 pm

    Maybe I should repeat my last question and see if someone else refutes it by actually hitting the ball….

  33. blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    . . . and slumpy shoulders (again) makes the final out.

  34. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:49 pm

    Maybe for that nickname game or whatever it is, the Flap should nominate the names, modeled after Snow White. Belt could be Slumpy. But, that could apply to most of ’em…

  35. snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:50 pm

    I hope in the Sept call ups that ZMan forces Bochy to play mostly all the call ups. No need from my POV to play these core guys much in Sept. I’ve seen enough. He should also approach the offseason as a scorched earth effort to dump this position core at all costs, and move forward with younger, more energetic players, from the minors and the usual FA assemblage he’s proved to be good at…

  36. alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:51 pm

    I’m sure the Phillies are licking their chops ready to feast on this pathetic team..

  37. snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:54 pm

    Kruk going off on Giants pitching now, as if that is the major issue. I don’t see it as that bad as these new guys get their sea legs. You don’t score, you don’t win…

    • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:02 pm

      Seriously? Grade A moron if so. Pitching was relatively good today. Scoring one run on 6 hits is pathetic.

  38. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 3:56 pm

    If Belt, Craw, Longo, et al, were put on waivers and another team claimed them (not that that’s even in the realm of possibilities), would that team assume the full remaining contract?

  39. Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:13 pm

    The Giants fucking SUCK. They lose Dick and what do they do? They just roll over like 3rd grade girls. Pathetic group of so-called *men*

    • djloo27 said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:18 pm

  40. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:17 pm

    Actually, what irks me is how they stamped their feet and whined about Z breaking up the team, and then they immediately faceplant after the trading deadline. Fuck ’em.

    • Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:22 pm

      and how can they even look at themselves in the clubhouse when they KNOW the only thing between them and THE WORST RECORD IN THE NL is a fucking journeyman who can’t stay healthy? Just pathetic across the board, the fucking *core* should be embarrassed.

      • snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:49 pm

        That’s why I would sit the “core” the entire September call up period and just see what you’ve got in your so-called top minor leaguers. The new guys Davis and Dubon should be called up and play ever damn day. And ZMan goes on a Sherman’s March through Atlanta to the Sea destruction effort to get rid of the “core” in the offseason. 3 seasons of this pathetic offense with this July as the only respite is more than enough of it. Crap teams are smoking homers left and right, even in SF’s own yard, whilst this team is in a 3 year collective hitting coma…

  41. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:26 pm

    I apologize, I didn’t mean fuck ’em. Still my team. But yeah, a little disgusted.

    • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:50 pm

      That’s why I come over to this blog. Paul, go over to McCovey Chronicles and say anything negative about the team (and God forbid, the writers of the columns and articles) in the comment section. They are all “homers with rose colored glasses.”

      So, yeah, fuck ’em is appropriate in my opinion on occasion.

      • snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 5:14 pm

        I just went over to ReCovery Chronicles, and tried to get on it. Apparently, I was banned from it some time ago and either forgot or didn’t know it. I looked at a bunch of the comments on today’s game. Mostly pablum…

  42. snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:42 pm

    I believe that in the DFA situation, like Panik, the waivers are irrevocable. If Panik clears waivers (nobody claims him, which is likely), then after the claim period SF outright releases him, and then SF is holding the contract and must fulfill the remaining payments due. If somebody then signs Panik who is now a FA, I believe the old team SF gets payment relief only to the extent of the MLB minimum that is to be paid by the new club, unless the new club agrees to pay him more than the existing deal (unlikely). That’s like Boston and Panda, and then SF taking him as a FA for the MLB minimum. I think on irrevocable waivers in the DFA, no team will claim the waived player, because then the claiming team would be on the hook for his remaining contract. Why do that if you think you can sign him as a FA, and you are only out the MLB minimum? They’ll wait until he becomes a FA and deal with him directly.

    On revocable waivers like the old post-deadline August period, if a team claims the guy, the waiving team can pull him back, or negotiate to trade the guy to the claiming team, at which point the claiming team has to pay the portion of his contract salary according to the trade terms.

    I think…

  43. snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    Meanwhile, Bosa sustains ankle injury today in 49er practice.
    With the Giants tanking, and nobody cares about the As, this is going to be the coming focus of Bay Area sports.
    The NFL is a joke…

    • Flavor said, on August 7, 2019 at 6:52 pm

      Niners gonna be all-out to keep Bosa somewhat healthy in the pre-season before he sustains a season ender in Game 1

  44. blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 4:59 pm

    I am tired of watching the core too. Technically, only one of them started tonight, Crawford. Of course, you had Posey and Belt come in due to injury circumstances. Longo, although not one of the core – can play less too in my opinion.

    My biggest wish – which I have stated a number of times – is that the core start being released, or more likely, real competition be brought in. Consequently, I am down with snarkk, AK, and others here, who want to see the “new guys” play. I doubt it will happen though as long as Bochy is managing.

    • snarkk said, on August 7, 2019 at 5:08 pm

      I assume when Bochy goes, the whole big club coaching/field management team goes. As it should. Start fresh with the new manager and an entirely new coaching staff. I’d be OK with Curt Young staying, I think he’s pretty good with young arms. Otherwise, all of them go. Replace coaching and management in the minors, too, to the extent necessary. Clean friggin’ house…

      • blade3colorado said, on August 7, 2019 at 5:17 pm

        I think they have cleaned house in the minor league system for the most part (at least in key positions). Yes, I agree, entire coaching staff needs to be released after Bochy goes and allow the new manager and Z to select the coaches.

      • alleykat69 said, on August 7, 2019 at 5:24 pm

    I’m not a huge movie/show recommender but if you guys want to watch something pretty fascinating go to Netflix and watch Screwball—it’s about how an unpaid $4000 bill ended up taking down ARod, Tony Bosch, Biogenesis, Melky, Braun, everyone. It’s really incredible how dumb all these people were and how few scruples they had. Watch it and let me know what you think, it’s 2 hours or so.

Didn’t wear proper footwear, so now has severely frostbitten feet, can’t run or practice. Looking for medicos to find solution. Meanwhile, training camp goes along without him. If I’m Raiders, I suspend every friggin’ game check and he gets nothing until he’s playing…

      I saw that and nearly spit my beer out. There’s so much wrong with this it’s not even funny. What an idiot.

    The Giants’ Triples Alley has to be shortened next season because the home games have to be made more entertaining. Losing 11-8 is more entertaining than losing 4-1.

    So at least someone is finally listening to Flap Nation( doubtful but we need some credit)
    Jaylin Davis coming up, Chris Shaw as well..
    Looks like Duggar sprain right shoulder, and Anderson blister pitching hand to DL..
    Not sure who moves off the 40man since Davis wasn’t on it..

      Love it.
      Duggar’s injury is somewhat of a blessing in disguise to get Davis up faster, although I think he’d be up soon anyway.
      I am excited to see how Davis fares. Put him in there and just play him. No platoon crap. And, hopefully Shaw has figured out how not to strike out every other AB.
      ZMan does not futz around.
      The team is cratering w no energy; it’s lost 9 of 13, so why not bring up those dudes?
      SabEvans would have waited until these AAA guys were psychologically prepared to fail, after the team was totally out of the WCII race. At least the team is still technically in it…

      All these dudes catching balls w one hand, and a baby or beer in the other.
      Makes Kevin Mitchell’s one hander in the left field corner back in ’89 or whenever look like no big deal…

    League is just playing a different game than SF, man

      Crap, I read that article.
      I knew it was a lot, but so far the Giants oppo has hit almost 30 more dongs at Oracle than the Giants. That is friggin’ pathetic. No doubt ZMan knows that this cannot stand. Giants must must must get more power. And, bring in the fences. No FA hitters worth a darn, and in their right mind, and not just looking for a late career last contract payday, will otherwise come here…
