Finally, There Was Carry

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 26, 2019

Gotta love Kuip after Davis hit that walk off: “On a night we knew the ball would carry….”

Uh, the game ended 2-1. Before that bomb in the 9th there had been zero extra base hits. All singles. There were more SB’s than extra base hits.

Jaylin Davis looks like a ball player, he walks like a ball player, I hope he gets a legit chance to play next season….

    Fell asleep before the end. Happy for Davis and agree, the Giants need to give him extended playing time in Spring Training and the first part of the season to see what’s what with this kid.

    Oh i’m sure Davis gets his shot. Giants haven’t had athletic player like him in long time in OF. I also think it’s good that he’s scuffled a bit, .125 BA all singles before the bomb last night. This isn’t the Coast League where you have 1.000 OPS–much better pitching, fielders and way different yards. So hitting ML level is gonna be tough. Prepare yourself every day.

    couple interesting things in Chron–one, Sabes (also in last year of contract) plans on staying. Mostly scouted this season but not interested in going anywhere else and says Z stays in touch with him.
    Two, here’s Vogt on importance of who new mgr is here as to whether he signs as FA: “It’s something you need to find out before you start forward.” Said he loved it here, good fit with young and old pitchers. He’d be a big loss if he went elsewhere.

    gonna be different day at yard today too–right now windy as hell and much cooler in south bay where it’s been mid 90s before. Kinda funny to see AmyG and lot of other gals at the O in sleeveless tank tops and shorts for mid week night games.

    This is time of year when GMs/mgrs. come under lot of scrutiny. Teams I mentioned like Cubs Phils Mets yada yada gotta wonder who survives, if anyone. Is it the guy who ran the team from the field or guy who put it together that gets most blame?

    • unca_chuck said, on September 26, 2019 at 8:48 am

      Welcome back Kotter barely made it through the first month. He’s gonna go. This may be a sea change in coaches. Lots of teams made a lot of moves. And all those huge deals at the beginning of the year paid 0 dividends. Machado, Harper, and Trout; on deals totalling $1.1 BILLION; are all on the outside looking in.

      The Nats GM, whoever he is, has to be laughing. His deal for Corbin at 6/140 was a steal, and Harper and his hair get to watch from the sidelines as the Nats got better without him.

    My boy Jaylin Davis making me proud!
    Ticket him in next year, like Willied mentioned.
    They need athleticism players not a bunch of rotting carcasses.With more polish& experience Davis could easily turn into a 5 tool gem, they desperately need more of..

  7. alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 8:15 am

    After playing 16 innings the other night I’m surprised both teams made it to the park..

  8. Macdog said, on September 26, 2019 at 8:31 am

    From Baggs: Jaylin Davis is the seventh Giant to hit a walk-off for his first career homer and the first to do so since Fran Healy in 1971.

      Attendance: 3,557! Thursday day game?

    • willedav said, on September 26, 2019 at 9:23 am

      ha yeah noticed the attendance. ’71 was good year too. Love these old boxes thx Mac…couple future Reds stars in Morgan and ouch Foster. Mays at 1b, almost done. Zero recollection of CF Jimmy Rosario. Jesus on Stros I do recall. Notice Speier and Fuentes both wound up season with under .700 OPS and Giants hit 140 HRs and were in top half of league.

  9. unca_chuck said, on September 26, 2019 at 8:39 am

    AK, my mom had a 1968 Galaxie convertible. 390. That thing was a tank but it was FAST. Crap off the line, but the C-6 passing gear in those old Fords would get you from 30-100 in a flash.

    My oldest sister’s husband drove me and my brother to an A’s game in ’73. He brought a couple friends, and of course a pony keg. Which were OK to bring into the bleachers back in the day. That was one of my first beers. Just turned 12. They of course got pretty drunk, and the ride home across the San Mateo bridge was crazy. Top down at midnight going 110 with 5 people screaming the whole way. Childhood back then seems like an endless series of narrowly averted disasters.

    • sandog said, on September 26, 2019 at 10:17 am

      Pony Keg in the bleachers??? Are you serious? That is hilarious.
      SDSU still has an Open Air Ampitheater on campus that seats around 3,000. I’ve seen many great shows there—Judas Priest, Cult–with GnR opening! Madonna–with Beastie Boys opening!
      Anyhoo, back in the day you could bring in one container of alchol, so we would literally empty out a gallon milk container and fill it with beer or one 128 ounce cocktail—and you were good to go. Good times!

    • alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 10:25 am

      Yeah those Ford Galaxie had some spirit.I told my pops to jump on it a few times and he was somewhat conservative,but when he did with my mom having that wtf look 👀 he would hit 90 plus and leave a trail of cars in the dust in his rear view mirrors as I yelled way to go dad!!
      Then later they bought a boat a Oldsmobile delta 88 with a trunk you could put 5 bikes in,I took that out when I first got my license and opened it up on Canada road hitting 100 that tank floated down the road didn’t even feel it was moving that fast…

  10. unca_chuck said, on September 26, 2019 at 8:50 am

    Jaylin will get a whole season to see what he has to offer. He’s a definite prospect. At 25, though, he’s on the edge of fading. Bart and Ramos are the ones who are interesting. didn’t realize Ramos is only 20.

    • Bozo said, on September 26, 2019 at 10:01 am

      You also want to keep your eye on Marco Luciano, 18 and some feel he could top both Bart and Ramos when he gets to the bigs.

      • alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 10:30 am

        Yeah Bozo, I’m stoked about Marco“Lucky”Luciano He’s only 17 I believe but has already said I want to be a team leader and in the bigs by 20.Dubon&Luciano should be manning the SS/2B positions for many years to come!

  11. willedav said, on September 26, 2019 at 10:56 am

    Read the other day that GM has killed off Buick as it did Olds earlier. they make only crossovers and SUVs I think, wthout buick name only the 3 flag emblem.
    25 years ago you saw them everywhere–3 GM cars that looked the same but with different names. Chevy MonteCarlo buick regal Olds cutlass (iirc). guy I worked with had a Monte, used to call it the Motel, national car of san jose.

  12. willedav said, on September 26, 2019 at 1:19 pm

    Beede off to fast start with 4 Ks, Pavs is all fired up and said fastball hit 96.
    Like Mac said tho, Rox K a ton. Story I think has 4-5 Ks plus the bomb off Bum in 2 games already.

  13. willedav said, on September 26, 2019 at 1:23 pm

    Gotta admit I don’t get all the run Rickard gets. Hard to see how he fits in OF next season.

  14. alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    And down goes Beede.Bummer he was dominating.
    Pulled some kind of muscle in his side.No win today chance so see ya next ST..

  15. blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    Pay attention Belt. Yaz showing how it’s done.

    • blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 2:07 pm

      That was whacked.

      • alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 2:17 pm

        Yeah Blade..Belt can take his slumped shoulders to an AL team hopefully next year..

  16. alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Yazz Man!!
    Smokes it over the 421wall!

    • blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 2:21 pm

      AK, what impressed me about Yaz’s swing is that it exploded on that pitch . . . He has a very compact swing and when he uncoils it – POW! I still don’t know if he’ll last at this level. Players who haven’t reached this level until age 29 give me pause. I hope he proves me wrong.

      • alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 2:37 pm

        Hard to say Blade, I think he has all the intangibles to succeed,he definitely has the pedigree and a bit of a chip on his shoulder either being passed over to prove himself, but he certainly shows power to all fields,and now with 21 bombs in only 103 games you would think he’s solidly in Z’s plans next year..

  17. blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 2:59 pm

    Dumb ass 3rd base coach waved him in . . . and out by a mile. Arggghhh!

  18. Bozo said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    gerber was baby food on that play at the plate.

    • blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:01 pm

      lulz. Good one.

  19. blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:03 pm

    Kruk should shut the fuck up. Wotus fucked up and you should stop defending the guy. Imbecile.

  20. alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    And that’s why perennial non candidate lifetime dugout dude Wotus won’t be coming back, along with most everyone else…

  21. alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:11 pm

    And I think Krukow can take his “”Arm Slot” up to Reno permanently, and use his arm slot on the slot machines 🎰 for any gamblers willing to listen to him…

    • blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:18 pm

      I agree with you, AK, San Dog and others who would like to see both Kruk and Kuik retire. They were fantastic for quite a long time, but they should clean house in the broadcast booth too. I mean come on, Kruk is almost defending this Rockies reliever, saying, “His ERA is a little high. Maybe by 3. Slider is really good” The dude has a 6.11 ERA!!!!!!! Hilarious.

      Oh, and the dude just had a bomb hit off of him (while I was writing this).

  22. alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:24 pm

    Yeah Dubon’s having a great game, yet Boch pulls his whipping boy Davis early in a double switch? WTF a game winning Bomb last night means squat to Bochy about a full game needed for continued development…

    • blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:30 pm

      I don’t get that move and bringing Belt in for Slater. These youngsters need confidence. Why bring in slumpy? We know what he can do (not much). Also, couple this with taking out Davis and Slater early, i.e., did he already forget the marathon they played the night before last? He might need a pinch hitter later if this game is tied. Zero sense in my opinion.

  23. zumiee said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:38 pm

    Machado’s season in a nutshell: strikes out in the ninth inning today and kills a rally, as the hapless Padres get swept at home by the Dodgers. Enjoy him for many more years, Padres fans. His OPS is in the .700s this season.

  24. blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 3:48 pm

    Rockies are self destructing. Hahaha. Terrible team this season in most facets of the game.

  25. Bozo said, on September 26, 2019 at 4:08 pm

    Win!

  26. blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 4:15 pm

    Clint’s late to the party.

    • zumiee said, on September 26, 2019 at 4:56 pm

  27. unca_chuck said, on September 26, 2019 at 4:28 pm

    Wow. ust saw Yaz’s bomb. That’s a serious shot. Yaz sure looks like the real deal. He hits the ball everywhere with power. His approach is solid.

  28. alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 4:42 pm

    Hey Blade,
    What do you think of the consensus out in Colorado on bringing Bud Black back? He might be on the hot seat, but to me it’s more their FO that should be jettisoned.

    • blade3colorado said, on September 26, 2019 at 5:03 pm

      I’m down with what you said AK. Bud Black is very intelligent and doesn’t make very many bad baseball decisions. Consequently, I think he should be retained. I also like the front office, headed by Jeff Bridich. He actually thinks outside the box and knows Sabermetrics frontwards and backwards. The biggest problem there is two-fold: 1. Coors Field is a terrible place to play for numerous reasons, e.g., altitude exaggerates the juiced ball (and their installed humidor barely corrects the problem), players physical recovery time is unbelievably extreme versus anywhere else in the MLB; similarly, players are constantly having to adjust their swings because balls don’t curve, slide, etc., versus the movement they see on the road, same deal for their pitchers having to adjust, and last, but not least, bullpens are usually exhausted by the 3/4 mark of the season; and, 2. The owner is still a cheap bastard, albeit, he has opened up the purse strings a bit more in the last 3 years versus the paucity he displayed before.

      So, I don’t really know the answer, except to say that baseball in Colorado at one mile high is the worst place to play by far.

      • alleykat69 said, on September 26, 2019 at 5:24 pm

        Very good analogy Blade!
        I really liked your point about injuries playing a major part with players playing in Colorado and their recovering time, never thought about that but it does make total sense.Except for maybe the” Mile High Club” Though at 40,000 ft yes things can still go wrong..
        Yeah I might of been to harsh on their FO personnel, especially if you have a dipshit owner calling the majority of the shots..

  29. mrsprtdude said, on September 26, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    yaz is a free agent right? What if he wants a 2 year deal for $10 million? 15 Mil?. Give it him?
