    Jesus it’s been a adventure for Slater in LF today, but he’s made 2 brilliant catches..

    Anderson looked good there. Who is this Baragar guy? He looked completely unfazed going after the Dogs.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on July 25, 2020 at 3:46 pm

      Not a spectacular minor league career, but evidently the evaluators saw something in him…maybe they detected icewater in his veins.

    • alleykat69 said, on July 25, 2020 at 3:55 pm

      Yeah they’re high on him Chuck.He goes right at you doesn’t fuck around like Gearrin did..
      2 innings 19 pitches 14 for strikes nice debut!!

  3. Carstie Clausen said, on July 25, 2020 at 3:43 pm

    Along the line he got tagged with the super original “Big Shaun”. Though pretty indifferent for SF last season, he did post a good to sterling minor league career. Not many runs score when a bullie whiffs the side. He’s been a starter throughout, but maybe, just maybe he’s channeling an inner John Smoltz.

    • zumiee said, on July 25, 2020 at 3:47 pm

      They got Shaun in a trade with the Red Sox.

  4. unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    Jesus.

  5. unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    Oh boy

  6. unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:11 pm

    Fun while it lasted. Oh well.

  7. willedav said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    almost a disaster.

  8. unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    What in the wide wide world of sports is going on here?

  9. James said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    We have taken defense for granted for a while.

  10. dirtnrocksnomo said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    W.T.F. was that? Flores is terrible in the field.

    • zumiee said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:15 pm

      He could be DH, and bench Pence.

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:20 pm

        Yeah. 2 errors already and almost 2 more in just 3 games.

  11. zumiee said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    Man, the shift just wipes hitters out.

    • djloo27 said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:26 pm

      and again!

  12. alleykat69 said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    Yeah I wish they could make the shift illegal.Play the game straight up..

    • unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:26 pm

      Come on. That’s like saying safeties can’t blitz.

  13. alleykat69 said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    Jesus Christ Gott!!

  14. unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    That was Solano wasn;t it?

  15. dirtnrocksnomo said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    Alternatively players could learn how to hit-not like it’s a new invention

  16. unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:27 pm

    Hey!!! Ballgame!!

  17. willedav said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:28 pm

    whoa Gott escapes with save. Kapler’s on the board.

    • zumiee said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:28 pm

    The TORTURE is back…lets get another one back tomorrow…

  20. dirtnrocksnomo said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Humm Baby!

  21. alleykat69 said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    They hang on for the win!!
    Yippee ya a mother F——rs

  22. willedav said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    Pavs already used word “torture.” From 5-1 to nailbiter.

  23. alleykat69 said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:32 pm

    Sucks for Webb, he should get credited for the win.But u have to 5 complete.So the new guy Baragar gets it I believe?

    • Carstie Clausen said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:47 pm

      No fretzkie, Kat. Webb is likely to rack up the W’s, in what could become a nice career. Kapler and the brass will take note–also of the guy who got the “W”. 58 games to go and over that stretch Webb could well establish himself at or near the top of the rotation.

  24. xoot said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    If we split this series, all bets are off.

  25. xoot said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    some soul-soothing music. RIP Peter Green.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:57 pm

      Nice. Hadn’t heard it before. No kidding. If F.M. does more like that I’ll have to tune in a bit.

  26. Carstie Clausen said, on July 25, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    By golly,, they did it. “Gott Mit Uns.” He musta misunderestimated Smith. Thou shalt not challenge major league hitters. But we were two up going into the inning and Dubon’s day was about the same as Mookie’s. But higher expectations for the latter.

    In his brief bid Rogers somewhat resurrected himself, though Watson was kinda iffy. Yazzel continues to dazzle and nice to see Davis’ dinger. All in all what should be a pickmeup for Giants fans everywhere (even out on the links in Bend, Oregon) is the fact that this time the LaBumbos looked a bit like stumblebums and los Gigantes played solid baseball.

    Likely we’ll see Buehler, Ferris T., tomorrow. I feel he’s their best. Will we see Smardj? Inquiring minds wanna know what the hell is going on.

  27. zumiee said, on July 25, 2020 at 5:10 pm

    ESPN game tomorrow night.

  28. Macdog said, on July 25, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    Missed the nail-biting final innings, but so glad the Giants finally beat that goddamn team. One thing with baseball back, it’s nice to be able to check scores on the phone again when out and about. Watching Nats-Yanks, something I didn’t miss was Joe Buck.

  29. willedav said, on July 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

    Rockies Orioles Tigers and Royals all won today too and Marlins won yesterday. How many of these teams can SF stay ahead of?

  30. unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 5:29 pm

    Great song, Xoot. The early stuff is sooooo good.

  31. unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 5:33 pm

    Green Manalishi is such a great tune. Haunting lyrics.

    Judas Priest’s version is near as good.

    • willedav said, on July 25, 2020 at 6:01 pm

      He wrote that, along with Black Magic Woman and Oh Well.
      Danny Kirwan wrote Coming Your Way, great tune.

  32. alleykat69 said, on July 25, 2020 at 5:53 pm

    Yeah a great song!
    There early stuff was real good!
    Hypnotize,Rattle Snake Shake also classics!

  33. djloo27 said, on July 25, 2020 at 6:56 pm

    Today was a reminder for me that I can still enjoy a ballgame and that I still care in my 58th season as a Giant fan…

  34. Winder said, on July 25, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    Thought we would give it all back in the 8th but we pulled it out. After the last couple of days a much needed win.

  35. djloo27 said, on July 25, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    The roster is full of guys I know so little about or never even heard of…

    • alleykat69 said, on July 25, 2020 at 7:52 pm

      Yeah get use to that all year with this roster!
      Like the saying goes in Butch Cassidy&The Sundance Kid:
      “Who are those guys”!

    • unca_chuck said, on July 25, 2020 at 8:56 pm

      At this point that’s the way I like it.

      No more Pence, Crawfish, Belt, and Longo.

  36. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on July 25, 2020 at 7:40 pm

    Craig, that was so cool. Actually brought a tear to my eye (just the left eye, not sure why). Maybe thinking of my Mom who died almost a year ago. Precious moments, and that one will last forever. Well done.

    • Flavor said, on July 25, 2020 at 9:25 pm

      thank you. It really was awesome and emotional and I can’t believe it all worked out. I totally get why this affected you. She’s 82 I’m going to be so bummed when she’s gone

  37. Flavor said, on July 25, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    btw Loo A fucking + on calling the first Wilmet BOMB

  38. willedav said, on July 26, 2020 at 7:22 am

    mm besides Loo’s call on Wilmet bomb was also the comment about hearing Kapler ruffling some feathers breaking baseball etiquette on not sending out LU in timely manner; as in 90 minutes before game time yesterday. Roberts was pissed and called it gamesmanship according to Pavs tweet. Also Gausman is riled he didn’t get a start and said that’s why he signed here because he was supposed to be SP not 4 inning bridge guy. Apparently Kap said next week will be different. As the Giants turn…

    • Macdog said, on July 26, 2020 at 8:21 am

      Yeah, the gamesmanship issue. Must be nice for Roberts to trot out Betts, Bellinger, Turner, Seager, etc. every day and not have to think twice about it. He’s never had to manage without star power on his roster. Eff him.

      • willedav said, on July 26, 2020 at 8:37 am

        that was the joke–his big decision is hey do I bat Muncy first then Betts or Bellinger…
        hey thx for that Temptations vid and pic of David Ruffin and all, great tune. I was in high school in 60s when they were so big, buddies of mine really got into them like the other Motown artists.

    • djloo27 said, on July 26, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Kapler just released today’s “preliminary” lineup.
      Hope he stays with it…

      Larry Herndon CF
      Tito Fuentes 2B
      Ollie Brown RF
      J.T. Snow 1B
      Mike Ivie DH
      Jesus Alou LF
      Kirt Manwaring C
      Jim Davenport 3B
      Roger Metzger SS
      Skip Pitlock P

      • Winder said, on July 26, 2020 at 9:10 am

        I don’t even remember Pitlock. I know I must have seen him.

  39. willedav said, on July 26, 2020 at 8:05 am

    Shaun Anderson K’d the side yesterday in his one inning of relief.
    He was SP and went 5+ for W on flap night late June last season.
    Unfortunately he fell apart after that. ERA at that time was 3.86.
    However…next 7 starts he gave up 44 hits and 27 runs in 31 innings, plus 7 bombs. ERA jumped to 5.40 and the SP days were over. .Dodgers hammered in relief in game at end of season and final ERA was 5.44

    • Carstie Clausen said, on July 26, 2020 at 8:48 am

      Psychology can be radically different between starting and relief roles. Hard to assess on extremely limited data, but intuition wants to say that maybe his makeup is similar to that of John Smoltz. Watching his pipeline career (via stats only) it appeared to me at the time that his relative dearth of K’s meant he was a soft thrower, lacking in hard heat.

      Yesterday, though, striking out the side will snag the attention of Kapler and the pitching ooaches. Even if he lacks the makeup for a shut-down closer he might just have the chops to become that slam the door fireman I’ve been hollering about for years. Three K’s in an inning definitely puts a damper on the psyches of opposing hitters.

      • Winder said, on July 26, 2020 at 9:02 am

        The bum’s McGee did that to us yesterday also leaving Yas at first.
