Baseball Is Back Baby

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 24, 2020

I had just driven into Bend yesterday when the game came on so I really only saw a few snippets of it at my sister’s house. Even with Kershaw sitting and that absurdly haired dope toeing the rubber we looked well beaten….

Today it’s golf at Widgi Creek with my sister and her kids and then it’s over to Black Butte where I shall be surprising my mom who doesn’t know I’m in town. I might videotape that if it’s funny I’ll post it here at the blog.

Make it a great day Flappers. Baseball is back and I’m golfing for the foreseeable future, and things are starting to feel normal again even though I know they aren’t…..

    More like the long and winding road, Zume.

    Helter Skelter?

    Cubs let hendricks throw a complete game in 1st game of the year. In todays era of baseball that might be the most amazing thing we see all year. 103 pitch complete game 3 hitter against a good Brewer line up. Snap!

      Wrigley looked fine without any effing cutouts, too

  3. xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    Dubon and Davis look great. If only they had some solid vets and sluggers around them.

  4. djloo27 said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:26 pm

    Wilmet’s pull hitting will serve him well at Oracle…

    • zumiee said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:29 pm

      Yeah, he’s been alright so far.

      • zumiee said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:30 pm

        I like watching his ABs. He knows what he’s doing.

    • xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:33 pm

      that’s true

      • xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:34 pm

        and he plays 3B well enough. probably better than the offensive lineman we have playing 1B tonight

    • Macdog said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:33 pm

      He’s also on pace for a 60-error season.

      • xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:35 pm

        this game’s almost over, though

  5. chipower9 said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:35 pm

    Fucking A’s – Angels is a good game.

    • willedav said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:55 pm

      thx this bs is unwatchable

  6. djloo27 said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    Everything over the fuckin plate to Muncy even with the catcher ‘s target inside.
    Gausepad is either a Giant pussy or just plain sucks…

  7. alleykat69 said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    Jesus you have 18 pitchers are whatever, why not use them instead of watching Gausman get hammered!

  8. djloo27 said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    I wasn’t a big Matt Cain fan but at least he would move a guy off the fuckin plate…

  9. alleykat69 said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:41 pm

    What is it with Joe’s on are team?
    Joe McCarthy = Kokomo Joe they both SUCK!!

  10. willedav said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    stripling in complete control. Dodgers were gonna trade this guy away too in the Pederson deal.

  11. willedav said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:47 pm

    son of Godsquad in there now.

  12. Macdog said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    I guess Coonrod couldn’t field that comebacker because he only kneels for God.

    • willedav said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:51 pm

      lulz. that type of night

  13. alleykat69 said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    I do like the hotdog vendor cutout dude at the A’s game.Sales look slow for him as cardboard cutout fans are light eaters..

  14. willedav said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    crawford falls asleep in the shift. man Kapler era not off to good start.

    • willedav said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:52 pm

      krukow trying to stick up for him and blaming C for not covering 3b.
      Um in that case who covers the plate? Sandoval was at 1b making the out.

  15. zumiee said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    I’m breaking this out early this season:

  16. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    I give you guys a lot of credit for paying attention to this team* in this season*, obviously all for the love of the game. I do miss the game, but I don’t think I’ll be watching much because the only players I want to see are the seeds for starting to cultivate the next 3-in-5 dynasty. Obviously that doesn’t include Pence Longo Crawford Belt et al. Ugh. Yeah, it’s gonna be ugly for awhile, but watching Pence et al is a helluvalot uglier to me than watching a younger-‘un trying to figure things out for the future…. Except Pablo. I still love me some Pablo.

  17. alleykat69 said, on July 24, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    Not in a Giants uniform..
    They really are a bunch of bad news bears trying to play with the big boys and failing miserably…

  18. djloo27 said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    I hope they don’t brush Muncy back or anything mean like that.
    Wouldn’t want to mess up his great night…

    • xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:01 pm

      Coonrod would’ve

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:10 pm

      It’s one of the things I will miss about MadBum. He’d go high and tight now and then….

  19. xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    what’s the over/under on dodger runs through Sunday — 30? 35?

  20. Macdog said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    What a fucking mess.

  21. alleykat69 said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    Giants under is at 4? Too high?

    • xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:22 pm

      I’ll take the under

    • unca_chuck said, on July 24, 2020 at 10:41 pm

      For the series we are right on target.

  22. djloo27 said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Don’t rush to cover 2nd Craw.
    And an error on the next play.
    The man is in a free fall…

  23. xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Crawford’s terrible tonight. Dubon, ready to make the turn, was left standing there on 2B wondering what the fuck is wrong here?

  24. xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    40?

  25. zumiee said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    I was kind of surprised Craw didn’t opt out. He has a lot of young children. It’s probably what’s most on his mind.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:30 pm

      Wouldn’t be surprised if he still does opt out (can you do that once the season has started?), he’s gotta be thinking, I don’t need this….. Unless it’s just about the money…

    • xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:34 pm

      he earned nearly $50M before this year

  26. wilcojoe said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    The Dodger organist playing Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” has been the high point of this game.

  27. djloo27 said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    Dodgers swept last series of 2019 outscoring us 20-2 in 3 games.
    That makes 37-4 over the last 5…

  28. zumiee said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    The homeplate ump isn’t great.

  29. zumiee said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    Floro is getting the Glavine strike zone.

  30. zumiee said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    The ump is hearing dinner calling.

  31. djloo27 said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    And the cardboard roars!

  32. xoot said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    • willedav said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:42 pm

      tremendous cut thx man.
      always loved that first line—“sometimes we are not prepared for adversity.”

  33. alleykat69 said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Perfect song for the Giants
    “Sometimes we’re not prepared for adversity “
    Mercy Mercy Mercy

  34. Carstie Clausen said, on July 24, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Going out with a whimper, featuring Joe McCarthy. How apt. I’ve known better defense watching sloppitch softball. Lottsa sorting out to do. So who’s the first one down? After last night’s “snub” Crawdaddy’s in a snit. Maybe he can hit a tater in one of the next few games so he can go out with a bang.

  35. unca_chuck said, on July 24, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Should be “What’s Goin’ On?”

  36. unca_chuck said, on July 24, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Can’t wait till Pence Belt and Longo are all back in the lineup. Watched THX 1138 instead of this dystopian nightmare. I had forgotten how weird that movie was.

  37. alleykat69 said, on July 24, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    A’s and Angels are going into extra innings.Which means they will be the first teams in history play under this stupid rule when a runner starts the inning at 2nd base..

  38. unca_chuck said, on July 24, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    Every inning? Or just the 10th?

    • djloo27 said, on July 24, 2020 at 11:04 pm

      Just the 10th, Chuck.
      If it goes to the 11th, each team selects 3 guys each for a punt, pass and kick contest.
      If it goes to the 12th, they have a spelling bee…

  39. alleykat69 said, on July 24, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    No it’s every inning.But why settle for 1run when you can score 4!!
    Matt Olsen just hit a GRANDSLAM for a 7-3 win!
