Finally, A Man Emerges

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 16, 2019

Everyone was talking about what an opportunity last night was for DRod and that was definitely true. He took advantage of it. Before the game, Krukow did his usual spiel about how his struggles this season were “100% mechanical” and that it’s been a greater challenge *getting right* because of his shuttling back and forth from MLB to AAA and the fact that he’s been in the bullpen and missing the routine of being a starting pitcher. I can support some of that. The other piece is that he’s just a marginal guy who has to be totally focused up every start with his *best stuff* with him every time he toes the rubber. And that’s not the end of the world if this is who he is. At least he can give us a start like this now and again. He’s been the only youngster to step up this August so we need to give this guy his due for last night’s performance.

Cueto was hitting 93 last night in his rehab start. That shimmy is getting closer and closer  to returning and I’ve just about taken home that ten bones from Diggity….

  5. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:09 pm

    Can we buy a fucking out?

  6. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:10 pm

    Fuuuccckkkk

  7. blade3colorado said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:10 pm

    This game is discombobulating Flap minds.

  8. zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    Total hanging slider. Awful pitch.

  9. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    I need a fucking drink…a double….

    • Flavor said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:13 pm

      Gail to sleep safe and sound tonight, aye?

      • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:15 pm

        She went up and spent last night in the mountains last night, and hiked today. She’s been out for hours,….dead to the world…

        Fucking freight train could roll through here, and I don’t think she’d stir….😂

      • Flavor said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:17 pm

        lol

  10. snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:13 pm

    Officially we’re in the dog days for the Pen…

  11. zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:13 pm

    We got so used to this bullpen being good.

  12. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:13 pm

    Staring to wonder about the bullpen pieces we traded. I like what we got, but the bullpen has been sketchy as fuck at times lately…

    • alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:19 pm

      My Man YAZ!! Number 3 For the Guy Who will lead this Team In Bombs by season in!!
      Better late then never for Roy Hobbs!!

  13. snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:16 pm

    Lil’ Yaz is EN FUEGO!!!!! …

  14. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:16 pm

    WTF! Trifecta Yaz!

  15. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    BIG MOTHERFUCKING FLY!

  16. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    You’ve got to be kidding me.

  17. blade3colorado said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    I give up. No names hitting bombs. Sissy pitchers can’t pitch 7 innings, much less complete games. Baseballs might as well be Super Balls. This game today only has a faint resemblance to the game Mays, Koufax, Gibson, Robinson, Drysdale, McCovey, etc., played. Sigh . . .

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:19 pm

      I am with ya 100%. I don’t like it, but it is still the best team game…

    • Flavor said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:23 pm

      it’s only got a faint resemblance to the game of Cain, Huff, Torres, Wilson, etc…..

      • blade3colorado said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:36 pm

        True dat!

  18. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    Missing the craziest game ever

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:19 pm

      Where you seeing the Avett Bros?

  19. Flavor said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    Between Pillar and Yaz you gotta say Young Z has done his job this year…..

  20. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    Who will pitch the bottom of the 11th? The water boy?

    • snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:24 pm

      Isn’t Bum due for a short throwing session in between starts? Why not now?

  21. snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:22 pm

    98 degrees F and 24% humidity outside in Phoenix right now.
    Even with AC, it must be warm and dry inside the ballpark there.
    Juiced balls be a flyin’….

  22. blade3colorado said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:23 pm

    12 bombs. Just your run of the mill MLB game.

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:25 pm

      Fucking pinball baseball….

    • snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:25 pm

      Giants hitting 6 bombs is Twilight Zone material.
      Yes, they have to be using superballs…

  23. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:24 pm

    Scoot needs to get in on the action….

  24. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:28 pm

    Hey I did call a 3rd HR for Yaz on my 9:41 post so I’m giving myself a knowing nod!!

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:28 pm

      Have a shot, Kat. Make it a double…

      • alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:35 pm

        I am 🥃🥃this game makes you drink more!

    • zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:30 pm

      Great call!

  25. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:28 pm

    Maybe Smith can get his shit together here….

  26. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    What’s gapoennng?

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:34 pm

      Snakes one on, one out.

  27. snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:35 pm

    Smith has seemed running on fumes pretty much the last few weeks. I don’t know why Bochy is forcing him to throw so many damn pitches…

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:37 pm

      Probably because of what he has left in the pen….

    • blade3colorado said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:39 pm

      You’re right. Didn’t he just pitch 35-40 pitches in his last game?

      • snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:41 pm

        Yep, something like that.
        I think Smith needs an IL visit for 10 days just to regroup.
        Zman used to do that a lot in LA…

  28. snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    Jaylin Davis tonight with the River Cats:
    3 bombs…

    • blade3colorado said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:41 pm

      Minor leaguers get flubber in their baseballs.

      • snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:43 pm

        Same balls as MLB now…

    • zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:41 pm

      If he comes up, Slater goes down. That’s pretty rough.

    • zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:43 pm

      Obviously they can possibly wait until Sept.

  29. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:41 pm

    Right move finally,Smith has thrown 72 pitches his last 2 outings!

  30. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:44 pm

    How the fuck was that NOT strike 3???

    • zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:45 pm

      Ump is inconsistent.

  31. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:47 pm

    Fuck YES! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

  32. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:47 pm

    Wow 😮 this game was crazy 😜 but in the end you Gott to believe it was the bright orange 🍊 shoes!!
    Yes!!!!Giants Win!!!10-9

    • zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:48 pm

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:48 pm

      LMAO, Kat. I had the same thought! 😂

  33. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:47 pm

    That was fucking tortuous…,

  34. zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:49 pm

    Smith vultures a win. 🙂

  35. Flavor said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:49 pm

    on second thought, how fortuitous it was that good ol’ Gail was hiking this weekend. If not she’d be running for her life right now with a maniacal Chi chasing closely behind….

  36. zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:53 pm

    A’s and Astros are in a dogfight, too.

  37. blade3colorado said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:54 pm

    Bullpen is probably gassed after this game.

  38. Flavor said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:55 pm

    poor Gail may have been accidentally murdered tonight if not for her love of hiking…..lqtm

  39. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2019 at 10:56 pm

    That 3rd HR for Yaz was not only impressive but when he rounded 1st with his fist pump it reminded me of game face ( geez I’m drawing a blank) blast in the playoffs!

    • zumiee said, on August 16, 2019 at 11:03 pm

      Gillaspie. Yeah, they kind of look alike.

  40. Flavor said, on August 16, 2019 at 11:00 pm

    Worried about Chi right now. Running in all directions of his house, alone, needing Gail but no Gail to be found. Wins like this can be a bitch, yes?

  41. snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 11:04 pm

    I’m going to watch game highlights on MLB.com.
    May take half the night with all these dingers…

  42. snarkk said, on August 16, 2019 at 11:10 pm

    Coonrod — I hope this guy isn’t another muscle head that throws a straight 4 seamer down the middle belt high every time. We’ll see. Meanwhile I kinda like this kind of game, lots of action, as long as Gmen win…

  43. Macdog said, on August 16, 2019 at 11:33 pm

    Man, I always seem to miss the crazy games, and this one had to have an epic 3 bomb night from Yaz and a pair from Pillar. Looks like Giants were on the verge of what would’ve been a crushing loss, so glad to see they pulled it out (Yaz!) and held on (Gott!) for a big win.

  44. pawliekokonuts said, on August 16, 2019 at 11:35 pm

    some game

  45. mrsprtdude said, on August 16, 2019 at 11:36 pm

    That was awful! Good win, but up 7-2 in the 8th and nearly lost! Heavy sigh

  46. pawliekokonuts said, on August 16, 2019 at 11:37 pm

    record number of homers for Chase Field; imagine how awful a loss would’ve felt. BUT THEY WON. SOMEHOW. 2.5 back in WC.
