    Fuck…I really missing being at an Opening Day today. By far my favorite day of the year.

  2. Macdog said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    Ole!

  3. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:01 pm

    I am delayed just a bit, but nice gift on the first run!

  4. zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    Flores barrels the ball up at a good rate.

  5. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    Machado’s such a dog..

  6. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:03 pm

    Wow what a butcher job by the Left Fielder Pham to allow Yaz to score!
    Nice hit Flores, he does make solid contact a lot cryer are not..

  7. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:05 pm

    I’m looking forward to see Chadrick Tromp get some hacks eventually, he was swing the bat well before the hammy flared up.

  8. Carstie Clausen said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:07 pm

    We’re on the board. So what’s not to like. Was watching first five of Twins v. Cards. Five in the second for Mn. There’s not a hole in the whole lineup. Wish we could say the same. What? You mean Pence is not batting cleanup as DH? Oh well, at least they have McCarthy in there batting 8th with his sterling ,ooo BA.

  9. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    Cardboard ball dudes would be fun target practice…

  10. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:12 pm

    I’m sorry but Padres uni’s just don’t cut it for me.
    I say anything brown flush it💩

    • djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:14 pm

      Yeah, I guess the light coffee pants are new?

  11. Carstie Clausen said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:13 pm

    Pesky Profar works Smardj 10 pitches before he goes down. Pitch count was looking real good through the first inning. Now it’s so-so okay.

  12. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    Crawford sucks.🙄

  13. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:17 pm

    McCarthy sucks, too. Still not sure how the fuck he made the club.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:20 pm

      Maybe McCarthy had photos (or video) of somebody doing something with somebody.

      • djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:27 pm

        I think this calls for a hearing…

  14. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    Jayce Tingler?

  15. zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    McCarthy showed some power in the “summer camp.” But he’s not connecting in the real games.

    • djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:29 pm

      He also excelled at Arts & Crafts and Scavenger Hunts…

  16. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:32 pm

    In case you were wondering if the ball is juiced again this year…

    • chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:35 pm

      No shit. It does help the ball carry given the arches are closed. But yeah…ball is jumping.

    • gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:37 pm

      Was about to say the same….fucking owners…

  17. zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    Flores is an adventure on defense.

  18. gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:36 pm

    Has anyone ever seen at our park a down and in pitch to a right handed batter go out for a home run down the right field line???? Ridic…

  19. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:41 pm

    Luciano – lots of talk about this kid. They say he is the kind of guy who can have a huge impact on a line-up.

    • alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:02 pm

      They say Lucky Luciano glove work is phenomenal, if only Crawdaddy would opt out, not likely , this kid is close..

  20. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:42 pm

    I would estimate Panda’s weight at 296..

  21. Macdog said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    Damn, Myers destroys the Giants.

  22. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    Year after year they let the same motherfuckers wear us out…

  23. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    Shark T-ing it up tonight…mix that with a juiced ball…it ain’t pretty.

  24. Macdog said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    Now we know why Smarjzdrfdfaop didn’t start in L.A,

  25. willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:53 pm

    smdrz and bombs gonna be an issue. Guy on F/G predicted downturn for him. Said more bombs would drive the ERA up this year–it’s double digits tonite.

  26. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    Yeah HR’s and Shark has always been his bug a boo 😒
    Those portholes being closed off will generate more bombs I believe, unfortunately more for the opponent..

  27. willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:00 pm

    wilmet’s gotta play somewhere, even once Belt and Longo come back.
    Didn’t the Giants smoke Davies last year? gotta look that one up.

  28. willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    June 14 they beat him 5-3 here. Pablo and Pillar homered off him and he was gone after 5 with an L.
    He beat Giants month later.

  29. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:06 pm

    Halle-fucking-lujah. Smardj is done for the nite.

  30. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:19 pm

    McCarthy needs to go, not even worthy playing in Sac..

  31. gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:19 pm

    Please send Joe McCarthy back to the 1950s!!!

  32. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:20 pm

    Giant youth movement:
    Ruf turns 34 today per Amy…

  33. snarkk said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    Smardzxxx — dude is a homer machine.
    I won’t miss him. Overall, a fair quality, but overpriced acquisition by Sabes…

  34. gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    Flodgers and Stros had a little face off after Correa struck out…benches clear but no punches…

  35. Carstie Clausen said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:28 pm

    At least Menez has thrown a couple of quality innings. Possible he could be for real. Maybe he and Smeardj could switch roles.

  36. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:32 pm

    Little horseshit rally brewing…

    • willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:34 pm

      couple lucky hits, they do count. middle of order up.

  37. willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Notice teams doing this to sandoval– switching pitchers and making him hit RH. hmmnn
    Giants have some options, like b-day guy Ruf.

  38. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    If I were Giant management, I would offer Crawford some kind of buyout right now so he can just go home for good. I’m ready to DFA this guy.
    The money they owe him and Belt is peanuts by today’s standards…

  39. willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:38 pm

    f-ing Kapler. If your iPad told you that was right guy, then throw it away.

  40. Macdog said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    A cardboard cutout of Pence couldn’t do any worse,

  41. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Please DFA Pence after the game..
    His pro-rated salary is pocket change…

  42. gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    That was a great swing by Flores on a tough 0-2 pitch and great hustle and delivers the run and then why Pence??? Why is Crawford hitting????

    • gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:40 pm

      HEINE MAN!!!

      • djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:46 pm

  43. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    Come on…rally bitches.

  44. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:41 pm

    What really hurts re: Crawford is the 17.2m he is owed next season.

    • gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:44 pm

      Got to just say f it and he’s gotta go next year if not sooner…no excuse Kapler did not pinch hit there with Solano…

  45. gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:41 pm

    Meet the new boss (Kapler) same as the old boss (Boch’s penchant and love for the has been vets)…

  46. wilcojoe said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    Bullshit move PH Pence for Dickerson in 6th. Good thing Kapler is a placeholder manager.

    • chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:44 pm

      No shit, on both counts.

  47. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    I would like to think that Kapler is trotting out Pence and Crawford to give evidence that it is indeed finally time to jettison the both of ’em. I mean, we already know that, having watched this for years now, but Kap is new to it. I think it won’t take too long.

    • chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:58 pm

      Then he has to convince Z and the owners to eat some $$$.

    • gianthead said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:01 pm

      But Kapler was supposed to be Mr. Analytics…why have him manage if you you then throw the analytics in the shitter…

    • Carstie Clausen said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:53 pm

      Good take. From afar to boot.

  48. Carstie Clausen said, on July 28, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    Positive takes so far: The dead wood have identified themselves from the get go. So the owners should swallow some sour beaverjuice, pay em off and good riddance.

    Pablo can hang around for shits and giggles. Menez may be arriving. Smardj MIGHT be okay as a one or two inning middle-man.

    If Kapler P.H.ed Pence on his own, he could use a spanking from a B & D dolly. If he was following orders (or quiet hints and suggestions) its on them. That pair of vets are sooo toast. If Whhilllber is such an adventure in the infield, maybe he should DH. We need his bat. If that happens, Solano has shown some spark and should play pretty much daily.

    • chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:01 pm

      The good thing about Smardj is he is off the books and a FA next year.

  49. Macdog said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    Jeez, another interference by Heiney.

  50. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    I’m still going with “Z has a plan…”…. This season* is just a preamble.

  51. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Telecast is better without the stupid crowd shots…

    • chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:18 pm

      Where in the hell are the seagulls when you need ‘em?!

  52. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Let’s get Wilmet up there as the tying run…

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:20 pm

      I like to stay on top of things. May I please ask, how did Wilmer turn to Wilmet? There must be a story behind that…. 🙂

      • djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:26 pm

        I mis-typed Wilmer last week, but decided not to correct it cause it made some sense.
        Seems to have stuck.
        I kinda like the sound of it…

      • willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:28 pm

        oh Loo just mistyped his name in a post last week and then said he was just gonna leave it up.

    • Macdog said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:27 pm

      Whelp . . .

  53. djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Someone should tell the Padre PC that the mask works better when you pull it up over your fuckin’ face…

  54. Carstie Clausen said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    From what some of you guys been saying about our Saluki reliever from down deep in Little Egypt, I got a new calling-card for him–RED MEAT. He pitched his way outta quite a bit of adversity there in the toppa the 8th. He’s gnarly tough–like chewing on a chuck steak from a shelly old cow trying to bite into him.

    • willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:30 pm

      Coonrod? line drive base hit to start inning, then wildness with off speed stuff and he hits a guy to load the bases. Still not late inning guy imo.

    • djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:31 pm

      Greatest Saluki ever:

      • willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:38 pm

        without question

      • willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:43 pm

        pretty move too up and under shot fake step through swim move. Textbool beautiful

      • djloo27 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:46 pm

        For about a 5 year period, I can’t imagine a better all-around player…

  55. zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Good job by the reply ump.

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

    After this game, the Giants can bring Bart up anytime.

  57. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Pence&Craw are consistent atleast In SUCKING both have batting averages of .077 yikes!!!

    • zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:38 pm

      The thing K&K never do is analyze why guys are hitting so badly. They really take it easy on the hitters. They often analyze why pitchers are struggling.

      • chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:40 pm

        With their history at the plate, maybe it’s better that way.

      • Macdog said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:44 pm

        Maybe they’re the Giants’ hitters advisors on the side.

  58. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Fuck you Pence Fuck you!!!’

  59. willedav said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    I have hard time believing anyone in FO is telling Kapler what to do/who to play and when. He and Zaidi go way back in Dodger org. He allowed him to hire his inexperienced coaching staff and run it his way. Sure personnel and roster are above his paygrade, but not lineups or in game decisions, imo.

  60. chipower9 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    That was a fucking weak-ass bottom of the 9th. Pfffttt…

  61. Macdog said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Big swings from all three batters down by 2 runs, unreal.

  62. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Nothing like striking out the side for Pomegranate..

  63. zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Kelly threw at some Astros’ heads. That got scary and ugly.
    Throwing at heads is way out of line, no matter the beef with the Astros cheating.

    • zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:54 pm

      He threw behind their heads which is malicious head-hunting.

    • zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 9:55 pm

      Expect retaliation and weirdness tomorrow.

    • snarkk said, on July 28, 2020 at 11:05 pm

      Head hunting is a no no — throwing elsewhere is justice in this case.
      Houston cheated with impunity, virtually no punishment…

  64. alleykat69 said, on July 28, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Once Kelly struck out Correia he liked mocked him with his tongue sticking out and it was on from there.Yes this won’t be over between these 2 teams, as the Dodgers feel they got hosed out of a title and were adamant about how Manfred didn’t punish any Astro players..

  65. zumiee said, on July 28, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    Kelly wasn’t on the Dodgers in 2017, but he under-achieved for the Dodgers last season, and maybe he thought this would earn points with his teammates. I can imagine, though, his teammates thinking “not at their heads, dude.”

  66. snarkk said, on July 29, 2020 at 1:10 am

    Maybe the Giants will win the WSeries by forfeit; they’ll have the best Covid+ test percentage, and be the last team standing with the most players still on the roster…
