Bum Taketh, 1.0 Giveth

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 5, 2019

Bum basically gave up 2 big leads yesterday. A four run lead and a 3 run lead. I know Gustave technically gave up the actual 2nd lead but he was only in there because Bum couldn’t shut the door after he was gifted ANOTHER big lead. At that point I figured we were done—even basically waved the white flag to Daniel on twitter….

And then like he’s done for most of the year, sans fanfare or accolades from most in the Giants community, our trusty 1.0 stepped to the plate and delivered.

A fun win that keeps our 0.1% post season hopes alive.

    Yeah, I didn’t have a lot of confidence after our boys coughed-up the lead, late. Great shot by Pillar. Not sure the team can keep him around next year, but I think it is worth exploring, as long as the length of and $$ of the contract are reasonable.

    I shot John (Bozo) an email yesterday. He says they are all doing OK in relation to Dorian. They plan to hunker down and ride it out, and said he would circle back later today to give me an update on their situation.

    Let’s get a W today and split the series.

  2. zumiee said, on September 5, 2019 at 7:17 am

    Ha! The myth that Giants fans don’t appreciate Pillar. There’s praise all the time for Pillar in Giants Nation.

  3. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 7:38 am

    Pillar was great last night with his 4 hits and game winning blast for sure, but I still have to marvel at the outstanding dive tag play by Tony Watson at 1st base to brush a speedy Kolton Wong in the butt, with a clueless Slater no where to be found( I thought the Stanford boys are suppose to be smart) then had the moxie while sitting on the seat of his pants to throw home to Posey to prevent and possibly save the game right there! 2 Flaps up play Mr.Watson..

    • blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2019 at 7:40 am

      Yeah, that was the play of the game. Pillar was easily the hero and Watson was the “unsung” hero, where his play probably saved the game.

      • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 7:48 am

        Agree, Blade. That was a great play by Watson.

  4. gianthead said, on September 5, 2019 at 7:40 am

    Cards handed Boch that one…

  5. gianthead said, on September 5, 2019 at 7:41 am

    Went to bed with a 4-2 lead and figured win #1993 for Boch was probably in the bag with Bum on the mound…did not see till inning 2 about Jaylyn and other call-ups. Any Flap reaction how he looked?

    • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 7:51 am

      I saw the River Cats Saturday night (saw Cueto – he looked great…75 pitches through six complete).

      JDavis was 1 for 4 (soft single) and 2 Ks.

      • gianthead said, on September 5, 2019 at 8:16 am

        Does he look legit? Quite a first hit for his career…

      • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:00 am

        Hard to tell with one game. I don’t follow the River Cats regularly. He was playing RF and we were between 1st and the OF wall, so he was right there. I think he had one opportunity in the field and made the play.

  6. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 8:29 am

    Jaylin is gonna be fine, just needs playing time .Will Vet to the end Boch give it to him?
    His 1st hit a chopper towards 3rd nothing special to look at but his speed sure is, he can fly.They said on the postgame show he was the second fastest Giant at 30.1 top speed to surprisingly Slater at 30.4.
    Also covered a lot of ground in RF, and can easily project him as a Centerfielder if they don’t resign Pillar.
    Davis just looks good in that Giant uniform, size,speed,arm. Can’t wait to match him out there with Yaz&Ramos maybe sometime next year..

  7. snarkk said, on September 5, 2019 at 8:34 am

    Bums road v home ERA splits are crazy different. Maybe Zman really did not get any decent offers…

  8. chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:01 am

    Well, another start to see what Webb can bring. Kat’s boy gets another start in the OF, and a couple of the other kids get a start, too.

    1. Mike Yastrzemski (L) LF
    2. Corban Joseph (L) 3B
    3. Brandon Belt (L) 1B
    4. Stephen Vogt (L) C
    5. Kevin Pillar (R) CF
    6. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
    7. Jaylin Davis (R) RF
    8. Mauricio Dubon (R) 2B
    9. Logan Webb (R) P

  9. blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:08 am

    A few folks here have said, “give Bum a 3 year contract and $55 million or more (heard someone say $90 million . . . WOW).”

    Me? I think that’s a bad idea. Give him a qualifying offer and take the compensatory pick. We’re in the home stretch, let’s see how he finishes the rest of his starts before we open up the vault for him. As I have said and others (Flav, snarkk, etc.), we missed the boat in trading him prior to the trade deadline . . . or, quite frankly, there were no credible offers. Hey, as I have always said, it takes 2 teams to make a deal, so the possible trade scenarios are endless. I have no idea what happened at the trade deadline – only Z and whomever he talked trade with do.

  10. unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:25 am

    3/75 is as high as I’d go. regardless of yesterday’s performance, he’s still a decent trade piece.

    I think a lot of GMs think he would have been strictly a rental and would come back here after the season. Hence nothing great in the way of trade offers.

    • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:48 am

      I think your take on him being a rental probably has some validity, Charlie.

      I don’t think you are too far off on what to offer Bum, either. Top 10 pitcher salaries are 1) 38.3 for Strasburg, down to a tie for 9th between Arfieta and and Jordan Zimmerman at 25 mil per year. I think Bum is as good as either of those two guys, and I can see the Giants needing a top of the rotation guy for a few more years, so I would be cool with 3/75, but no longer, and no more $$-wise.

    • alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:49 am

      I agree Chuck 3 years tops at 70/75
      He practically owns his hometown,maybe add a gun range,a log competition, a upgraded man cave shed,4 wheel RV’s not 2 wheel motorcycles 🏍 more farm animals for the wife etc.Money has never seemed to be his top priority, being a Giant for life is..
      And how many pitchers can consistently give you 200 innings &200 K’s every year (barring his 2 freak injuries) and stop losing streaks every 5th day when needed.They need a big time gamer like him at the top of the rotation with a lot of unproven pitchers following him…

  11. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:29 am

    Bumgarner has put together a solid year so I’m not piling on over a poor performance last night. I hope the club brings him back next year but who knows what happens. Failing to sell high on Smith was a mistake imo. He just hasn’t been as good since the AS break/trade deadline.

  12. Macdog said, on September 5, 2019 at 10:34 am

    If you’re at work, keep working.

    • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:02 am

      Assuming you are referencing the early 3-0 hole. It’s early, Mac. Let’s hope for a bounce-back.

      • Macdog said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:07 am

        Yes, the 3-0 hole. I gotta go out, so yeah hoping for a rally.

  13. Cardinal70 said, on September 5, 2019 at 10:43 am

    Pillar is quickly moving up the “Pesky Giants that Destroy the Cards” list. Not that anyone is surpassing Brandon Crawford…..

    • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 10:53 am

      😂🤣😂

  14. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 10:53 am

    Say Daniel, what happened to Matt Carpenter this year? Is he just a platoon player now?

    • Cardinal70 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:02 am

      Not a platoon player. Honestly, nobody really knows what happened to Carpenter, though there were some signs last year even as he put up a season that got him MVP votes. It’s possible the shift has messed with him too much, there’s thoughts that his bat is slowing down, and it could be he just needs to take the offseason and reset. Down the stretch, though, it seems like he’ll only get a spot start in the right situations and Tommy Edman will play third most of the time.

  15. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:12 am

    Thanks, yes the shift does mess up a lot of players are just psyche with their heads.And mother time does ketch up with players and their bat speeds.Giants have a whole bunch of them in Posey,Belt,Crawford & (Longoria though he has played much better this year imo)

  16. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:20 am

    Another stupid play by the Giants cost them a run in this blowout white flag game..

  17. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:24 am

    2 for 43 and of course the pitcher delivers a 2 run single! Not a Webb gem performance for Logan as He’s gets KO’d

  18. chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:25 am

    OUCH…

    I am taking Mac’s suggestion to “keep working” if at work. Time to fire up some tunes…

  19. unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:25 am

    Who the fuck is Burch Smith?

    • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:26 am

      Dunno. But sure as fuck hope he is better than what young Logan Webb had today.

  20. unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:26 am

    At this rate, Boch won’t reach 2,000. what a clusterfuck.

  21. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:40 am

    Football Opener Tonight!
    Packers/Bears theirs that atleast and getting to see my boy Jaylin Davis get some PT!
    Burch”Lurch” Adams Family pitching well, if that’s any consolation..

  22. chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 11:41 am

    A little diversion…top 20 pitchers of all time.

    http://sportschew.com/greatest-pitchers-history/20/

    Pretty impressive list, but hard to believe that Marichal is not on the list.

    • alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 12:07 pm

      I’m with ya Chi!
      Dominican Dandy sadly never got the total respect he deserved! That goes for Cy Young Awards also. I was fortunate to see him and Perry both pitch for the Giants, both great competitors.Marichal I was in awe of due to his leg kick, the many different pitches he threw, all for strikes, just a complete and dominant pitcher…

      • blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2019 at 12:17 pm

        Ditto AK and Chi. My favorite pitcher of all time and 2nd isn’t even close.

      • blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2019 at 12:19 pm

        If you go by season War, he got robbed on at least 2 occasions for the CY. Had to have been the Roseboro incident and that he was Latin.

      • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2019 at 1:15 pm

        The stat that blows me away more than any for Marichal was that he had more complete games than wins. He and Bob Gibson are my two all-time favorites.

  23. blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2019 at 12:13 pm

    Again, I have the St. Louis broadcast that I pirated . . . I’ll be frank, I learn a lot more from their 2 announcers, than I do K & K. McCarver is especially knowledgeable. Still trying to figure out why he got canned from Fox and not Buck – who I really abhor and can’t stand. Yeah, yeah, yeah, McCarver is occasionally too talkative. I forgot who said this, but it goes along the lines of, “When someone asks McCarver the time, he’ll tell you how the watch was constructed. Regardless, the dude knows his stuff.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2019 at 12:28 pm

      But he never tells you the time! That’s the problem.

      • alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 1:01 pm

        Maybe he only uses a broken watch which is still accurate twice a day!
        But I do agree with Blade,he’s very knowledgeable of the game unlike the dry up-noxious Joe Buck who could never live up to his old man Jack in popularity..

  24. sandog said, on September 5, 2019 at 1:35 pm

    Listening to K and K–especialy Kuiper, you actually get dumber through the course of a broadcast. Its like listening to Billy Madison make his plea to the Board of Regents. Flemming on the other hand, crams your ears full of knowledge. Miller I would say is somewhere in between.

  25. sandog said, on September 5, 2019 at 1:37 pm

  26. dirtnrocksnomo said, on September 5, 2019 at 2:28 pm

    I agree regarding K&K. They’ve been mailing it in for years but Flemming sucks imo. I’m not looking for a total homer broadcast but he doesn’t come across as a fan of the game let alone the Giants. He’s also milquetoast no personality boring as all hell. Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know.

    • snarkk said, on September 5, 2019 at 3:52 pm

      Kuip‘s audible and visible chewing and gnoshing on air during post game wrap, my pet peeve, is Exhibit #1 of phoning it in. He can’t wait 10 min to have a Sammy or Hot Dog off air? Or in between commercials? I’m guessing Scully never did that. Unprofessional and insulting to long time fans/ listeners IMO. He doesn’t give an S obviously…

  27. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    I’m with you Dirt.Ive always thought Flemming is just a snooty snot from Stanford that the Giants initially threw a bone at maybe to get younger in the booth.Now he thinks his shit doesn’t stink and I feel his true passion is for the prime time National network games.Though the Giants will probably make an attempt to keep him and maybe pair him with Estes going forward after the K&K team finally hang it up soon..

    • sandog said, on September 5, 2019 at 3:23 pm

      The only thing I got against Flemming is the Stanford pedigree. Milque Toast????? He’s the ONLY announcer we have with the balls to call our players out every once in a while. He’s super over-qualified to be the #2 guy for a team and get 3 innings a night. Plus he knows what’s going on around the game. He understands analytics. He knows players. I learn a ton listening to him call a game. Kuip knows nothing about players not on the Giants. If you asked Kuip to name 2 players on the Twins, I’d bet my house he couldn’t do it.

      • blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2019 at 4:55 pm

        Good post. I like Flemm.

  28. snarkk said, on September 5, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    Criminy.
    Just saw score.
    10-0?
    One of Boch’s getaway day specials?
    My 1-6 prediction is still alive for this roadie. If this turns into a free fall September with lots of core participation, Zman has his marching orders to gut this roster in the offseason…

  29. snarkk said, on September 5, 2019 at 3:43 pm

    I don’t see how Flemm could move to the #1 announcer and still do his ESPN gigs in the season like he does now. He may be making more doing those gigs part time than he is doing the Giants gig in back of Miller. Giants would have to Pony up a lot to make him whole, I think. New manager, new coaches, new Front Office, why not new announcers in 2020, too…

  30. zumiee said, on September 5, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    Wow, tough crowd. 🙂 I like all the Giants broadcasters well enough. They each have their little things I don’t like; but overall, they each bring their strengths to the table. Flem and Miller are good together on the radio. They interact with each other all throughout the broadcast, regardless of who the official broadcaster of that particular inning is. They can get esoteric with each other, and I think that especially makes it fun for Miller. K&K, well….at this point they are much beloved institutions, and they are going to be there as long as they want to. I could do without Krukow’s fake umpire scouting reports, and I could do without Kuiper’s hackneyed phrases. Notice how a runner hits a double and then “puts on the brakes.” There, now that I’ve mentioned that, it will annoy you all now. “So and so puts on the brakes.” Once I realized how often he does it, it got really annoying.
    But, they can do schtick together, and sometimes the schtick works really well. They are probably the greatest baseball broadcasters in history at creating funny narratives of people in the stands. Not exactly what their strength SHOULD be, but still, most Giants fans love the schtick.

  31. Flavor said, on September 5, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    I don’t think you guys are giving enough of a shout out to how bad some other team announcers are. Our group is fine. We are bound to get sick of certain things they say or how they say them, we’ve been listening to them for decades.
    All in all, they aren’t great, they aren’t bad. We could be stuck with worse.

  32. Flavor said, on September 5, 2019 at 5:03 pm

    I get more turned off by the “announcer voice”. I couldn’t stand david glass or lindsey nelson because of they way they delivered the game. Same with that stand in guy from earlier this year, can’t remember his name. I like K/K and MIller because they sound like friends of mine talking about the game. Even if I think some of their shit is lame. It’s a sweet Summer sound coming from my radio…..

  33. Macdog said, on September 5, 2019 at 5:14 pm

    Before the season, Flemming signed with the Giants through the 2022 season, so he’ll be around for at least a few more years.

  34. Flavor said, on September 5, 2019 at 5:18 pm

    I’d mostly agree with this just because his voice is the voice I remember first listening when I was a kid. But he does have an announcers voice. Nostalgia gets me past that I guess

  35. unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2019 at 6:15 pm

    It wasn’t THAT long ago. I think he announced the Giants in 1978.

    I was gonna say, Flemming is here for a while. As long as Posey anyway.

    Dickerson hurt again. Bye bye,

  36. blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    I’m done with Dick . . . He shot his load and not even Viagra will bring back his potency. Hey, he’s a 29 year old man. In baseball terms, he’s ancient. Next . . .

  37. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2019 at 6:39 pm

    Dickerson’s been hurt since mid Aug with the oblique injury, but did the Giants do anything except the initial 10 day DL and bring up Davis then when they still had a pulse NO!! Their Stupidity and Loyalty is unmatched in baseball with Bochy’s Vets to the bitter end..

  38. sandog said, on September 5, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    If I ran the Padres I’d make a helluva run at Flem to come down and be the top guy in the broadcast booth. Their lead announcer, Ted Leitner, is awful. I have my doubts whether Flem would go for it though. He lives in city and seems to love the bay area. Plus he’ll probably be top dog for the Giants before long.

  39. snarkk said, on September 5, 2019 at 8:25 pm

    Michaels announced radio of the Giants along with Lon in ’76.
    I remember them together, they were great.

    Dang, I read the wiki on Al Michaels.
    How’s this for a first job.
    “Michaels’s first job in television was with Chuck Barris Productions, choosing women to appear on The Dating Game.”
    Dang, the possibilities seem endless. I wonder if he was the gatekeeper when Farah Fawcett got onto the show. “Gee, Farah, I’m not sure you’re really what we’re looking for. Let’s have a drink and find out more about you…”

    • blade3colorado said, on September 5, 2019 at 8:50 pm

  42. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:21 pm

    Add to the list of worst announcers: Joe Angel. He was terrible. Sounded like he was trying to be someone else. Fortunately, he didn’t last long….

  43. zumiee said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:27 pm

    The Dating Game’s theme song was garbage. Most game show theme songs are bad. They sound like they’re written by tone-deaf incompetents.
    Hard to think of a good one. The Price is Right is a good one. It has a little touch of melancholy. Game shows have a sadness to them, so it works well. They’re the equivalent of junk food. Reese’s has embraced their junk food status with no apology. Their “not sorry” campaign.
    The Price is Right theme song offers junk without apology, but with a little self-aware sadness.

    • snarkk said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:37 pm

      Come on zum, Spanish Flea by the Tijuana Brass? No like?
      And, Herb Alpert didn’t have a Hispanic bone in his body.
      Here is the song, and with a special guest participant:

  44. snarkk said, on September 5, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    BTW, Herb Alpert is a good dude, a huge philanthropist to the Arts.
    He founded A&M (Alpert and Moss) records in the early ’60s, Sold it out to Polygram in the ’80s for half a billion. He parlayed his share of that plus his TJB records money and investments into a net worth somewhere in between 1/2 a billion and a billion. His foundation has given $150+ million to arts and music programs and schools across the country. He’s poured probably now over $30 million into music facilities and endowments at Cal Arts in Valencia. At least that much, too, to UCLA music school programs. Mrs. snarkk graduated from Cal Arts years ago. He’s got a spread in Malibu right on the ocean that is unreal. There is an interesting hour documentary or some such on him from some years ago, on youtube probably still. Interesting guy. One of his stable of performers at A&M was the Carpenters. You may or may not like their stuff from years ago, but I submit Karen Carpenter had one of the all time great female pop voices. Right up there with Whitney and Streisand. Crystalline. She died at 32 or 33 after fighting anorexia for years. In those days nobody knew how to treat it either with drugs or psychiatric counseling. When the interviewer started asking Herb about her, he started to talk about her and how senseless and terrible a loss her death was, and then just entirely broke down and cried and couldn’t talk anymore …

  45. zumiee said, on September 5, 2019 at 10:00 pm

    I like Herb Alpert a lot. We had one of his albums when I was a kid. Something about Spanish Fly always annoyed me, though.

  46. zumiee said, on September 5, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    This is so good. Very sublime. The Beatles did a nice cover of this.

  47. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on September 5, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    Had all the Tijuana Brass albums as a kid. I remember my Mom being dismayed when I eventually *graduated* to listening to rock. The end of the age of innocence, I suppose. Didn’t he also play with Hugh Masakela on “Grazin’ in the Grass”?

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on September 5, 2019 at 10:33 pm

      Yeah, I remember that. I also remember carefully studying the album cover showing the woman covered in whip cream…..

      My parents had a pretty diverse and eclectic music taste, so I was exposed to everything from Herb Albert, to Frank Sinatra, to various country artists. My dad was also a big Creedence Clearwater fan. I think their tastes rubbed-off on me, as my music tastes are also very diverse.

  48. djloo27 said, on September 6, 2019 at 5:30 am

    Snarkk, you have officially flunked Flap/Splash history if you don’t know which Superstar around here is Karen Carpenter’s #1 supporter as greatest female vocalist in history.
    As well as the guy who I’m pretty sure mocked me for it…

Last night, the hurricane had not hit his area, but I believe it is bearing-down on our friend. He was still planning to hunker-down and try to ride-out the storm.

    Well, our boys hit la la land tonight to take on the hated bumbinos. This series really has no bearing on things, outside that the Braves are five back for the best record in the NL.

    We seem to play the bums tough, so hoping our Giants can go in and win the series. A sweep would be sweet.

    AK’s right . . . I do not want them celebrating their Division championship while we’re in town. Beat the Bums!

    I guess root for the D-Backs vs. the Reds, that would also keep the Bums from clinching this weekend.

    Oh man Herb Albert is awesome 👏
    My parents use to burn the grooves out of his albums! Especially when they had the neighbors on the block over for Cocktails 🍸 on Friday nights are Saturday after the work week( rotation system every weekend)Herb was the best trumpet 🎺 player around and his hits like Lonely Bull, Whipped Cream,This girls in love with you,Spanish Flea and many more are epic! Wasn’t Whipped Cream used in the intro music in the Dating Game?
    Any way Herb could of banged any chick he wanted back then hands down, along with Robert Gouliet (sp?) another singer with the sex appeal that woman couldn’t resist …I will still play a few Herb Albert songs occasionally in my local bar and get a thumbs up 👍

    Tom Jones was another fave of mom’s. My parents parties were epic disasters for the most part. I’m amazed there weren’t fatalities, although a couple marriages were bent. They would get blasted as fuck. Used to have a pic of one of the neighbors passed out in a closet.

    One thing I could do when I was a kid was burp on command. And say things. By the time everyone was plowed, they’d egg me on to burp ‘Engelbert Humperdink.’ They thought is was the funniest thing ever. Fun shit for a 7 year old.

      Tom Jones was a mainstay with my parents…What’s New Pussycat….Why oh Why Delilah…

    Yeah Chuck the parents party’s were crazy 😜 usually martinis are vodka tonics are bourbon 🥃 but since it was usually a few houses down they could stagger home holding each other up lol 😂
    I remember a few years back a lady neighbor of mine and her husband and my former wife&I wanted to recreate retro times like they did, the stupid hats and party 🎉 favors, blowing those little horns etc.
    We made a Shitload of martinis 🍸 and just got wasted.Then I forgot I had a golf tournament Sunday morning early up in Petaluma and I drove (shouldn’t have) 1st to the wrong golf course lol, luckily the other course wasn’t to far away, and I pulled in just with enough time to tee it up as the rest of my group of golfers 🏌️‍♀️ were busting up! Never try and reenact your parents it’s not worth it!!

    You guys are bumming me out when you talk of your parents having the T. brass LP. I played the shit out of that in Arlington in 1965-6. Also, Boots are made for Walking with Nancy Sinatra. Only thing she did worth a damn.

    Bochy did finally get fed up waiting for Belt and Craw to figure out how to hit off of Kershaw.

    Thanks, OSF for giving me the oppo to post my favorite cover EVER. I’m a sucker for a great cover song.

    How’s John? Anyone here from him? I understand that the water level has risen 5 feet in some parts of N. Carolina. His house is on 8 foot stilts I think he said.

  66. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    At least Belt and Crawfish are out of the lu.

    I thought Colleti only knew baseball, but apparently he’s also knowledgeable about hockey. I’m impressed.

    I have never seen a relief pitcher have a season like Edwin Diaz.
    It is truly remarkable…

  70. blade3colorado said, on September 6, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    Buster’s K could have been worse, as he leads the team hitting into double plays (16).

  71. blade3colorado said, on September 6, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    Big wasted opportunity.

  72. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2019 at 7:47 pm

  74. unca_chuck said, on September 6, 2019 at 7:50 pm
