Great Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 30, 2020

Solano and Yaz. And how bout that boater risking it all and diving in for the splash hit? At .500 even with Pence at .000 and Pablo at 300 (pounds).

I shot this very lame video on the way back into town yesterday but if you are a Giants fan who hasn’t ever been out to the park it’ll give you a good idea of where Oracle is located in relation to The City.

    This one my be over early.

  2. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 7:54 pm

    So the Giants have a magazine called “Gamer”
    and they don’t have Hunter Pence on the cover?

  3. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    Aaron Rowand wasn’t available.

  4. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 7:56 pm

    And Myers is up.

  5. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 7:56 pm

    yes, as kuiper just noted only second hit for profar in 17 ABs. line drive rbi rocket . this is fast getting away from Gascan.

  6. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    Kat Grisham has sure hurt the Giants. Maybe they have finally found a CF.

  7. djloo27 said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    Wow!

  8. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    Huh. Nice comeback for Garcon.

  9. zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    Team needs a wake-up call again.

  10. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    Here I was,, typing away and in the other room the Pads scored a pair on three straight hits. Got back in there and THEN he strikes out the side. Is this guy into a Jekyll and Hyde impersonation?

  11. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:06 pm

    Any chance Sando hits his weight this season? Even if it gets down to 269?

    • Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:14 pm

      Pabs does not have that slashing drive to his bat at this point. Not up to speed. Do they hafta play sagging vets from the get-go and then stick with them? At least no Pence tonight. Thanks for small favors.

    • Flavor said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:20 pm

      he’s not getting down to 269 come on, he’s 300+ and no one loses weight during the seaon.

  12. Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    I think CC had it right, having three players make their season debut vs. this guy was not a bright idea.

  13. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    Pence hasn’t even gotten up to Karen Carpenters weight…

  14. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:24 pm

    I would think with state of the art equipment every team is supplied with,that they don’t have a baseball machine that cranks out 100 mph pitches in their indoor cages in the clubhouse that also can adjust the tilt angle as well for sliders, curves..Then guys like Longo&Belt just coming back might not be this rusty?

  15. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:25 pm

    Gausman in 2 outings:
    8 and 1/3 innings 12 hits 6 runs 5 earned 1 BB 10 Ks.

  16. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    Here they come . . . the rally killers!!!

  17. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:35 pm

    Fuck me sideways. Berlt forgot how to play.

  18. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    That was some crazy shit right there..

  19. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:37 pm

    Grisham hurts them again, fantastic catch. Longo hit that pretty well.

  20. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:38 pm

    Grisham continues to impress, that ball gets by him and the score is tied!

  21. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    We’re in the game now—kinda. Were it not for that fine, diving catch by Grisham the game would have been tied. Oh well, to beat the best you gotta be better.

    • alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:45 pm

      And now we’re out of the game again..

  22. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Grisham has some Ken Griffey skills coming out of him..

  23. zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    Amy G. keeps saying it, but she’s wrong, that wasn’t a socially distanced celebration at homeplate last night. MLB has kind of a pretend attitude about players following the protocols.

    • Flavor said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:55 pm

      i missed what she said but I thought they did pretty good. What do you think they should have done? All masks and further away? I’m down with that I’m just interested to know what the Zumiee approved social distancing walk off bomb looks like

      • zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:59 pm

        They’re going to clump together, I know. No way around that.
        The whole mini-season is a crap-shoot. They have to thread a needle.

  24. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    Welcome to the bigs Barggar
    Double,HR,Double and still no outs yikes 😳

  25. Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:47 pm

    If anyone’s missing the sea gulls, The Birds is on Turner Classic Movies.

    • zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:54 pm

      Poor Suzanne Pleshette.

      • Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:04 pm

        Having her schoolkids run out in the open wasn’t her smartest decision.

    • alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:04 pm

      Tippi Hedren was hot driving that little boat with her mink coat on..

      • zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:08 pm

        Then the town goes all Salem Witch trials paranoid on her.

  26. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    So far for Profar. Rally unlikely tonight. Too many LOBs. Lineup too dinglefritzed to produce. Kapler needs to quit with the mix and match and arrange things.for run production. Notice how SD bunched their hits? Man or men on base and they come through. They’re a good team this year. Giants need to totally be on their toes to compete.

  27. zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    Padres botched their rebuild a few times in the last 10 years, but they seem to have it figured out now.

  28. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Giants stole one last night with long ball. Pads have all the power shots tonite as Giants pitching getting whacked around. Coonrod falls asleep again and allows runner on 2b to steal 3b. Unreliable for late innings/close game.

  29. Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    Maybe they should end this one after 7 innings.

  30. djloo27 said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    No deficit is insurmountable in our new little bandbox…

    • Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:20 pm

      Down 6-2, got ’em right where we want ’em.

  31. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Red Meat needs to command his heat. He was a bit hyper starting out and it cost him a run.

  32. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    Hey!! Solano!!!!

  33. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    ribbie leader strikes again.

  34. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Rally killing time. Can Belt hit a fly ball?

  35. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Didn’t realize Pomegranate was a Pad.

    Longo dongo? Would be cool.

  36. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Now that home run would be nice.

  37. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Poms not exactly putting the fire out here.

  38. djloo27 said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:32 pm

  39. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    One thing you gotta know. They don’t go down with a whimper. Good to see Kaps PHing Slater for Pablo. He produced.

  40. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    Unc I don’t think Belt actually wants to hit this year. He just wants to sniff at balls out of the strike zone that he deems unworthy of his attention and take a walk. Beats the shift every time.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:36 pm

      Bel t has long been a master at taking bases on balls. That’s why he should bat second. Those of us who have followed his career know he’s not an RBI man. So why not take a free pass? When he shows some pop there is almost never anybody on base.

  41. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Funny thing. Both Perdomo and Pomeranz were RPs for the Giants.

  42. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    One touching moment in The Birds,a young Veronica Cartwright ( more famous in Lost in Space) asks Mitch can we bring my love birds with us it’s not their fault?
    Mitch reluctantly takes the birds in the Austin Martin and they drive away from bird hell attacks!

  43. Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Yatripleski!

  44. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Wow! Yaz can cook!!

  45. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Pads have bum scouting report on Yaz. RHP LHP doesn’t matter he hammers them all.

  46. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    another ribbie for the machine great AB

  47. Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    Tie it up!

  48. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    Solano is the man!!!

  49. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    Yaz just scorching the ball right now!
    As this resilient bunch comes back again!
    Come on Solono pick up The Dick!
    And he does!!! Great AB Donovan!!!
    Tied at 6-6 sound familiar?

  50. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    Padres must be taking a bite out of their gloves blowing back to back 6-2 leads late..

  51. djloo27 said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Belt jogs to first like he had a hip replaced this morning…

    • alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:03 pm

      I have a new one a month ago, I wonder if my hip is transferable and I can give it to Belt?

  52. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Never say die? I guess much.

  53. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Good call MacDog I needed alittle Pigeon Shit the Birds supplied to get the juices flowing and to turn it back just in time to ketch that Giant Rally!

  54. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Mr Scary in the neighborhood.

    • unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:06 pm

      Hooooooooo. that was close, but here we go!

      • zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:07 pm

        Yeah, that looked like it could be bad off the bat.

  55. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    hmnn. this better work. If Giants don’t win this right now, Pence is in for Wilmet which could be a fatal error.

    • willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:15 pm

      2 pop flies Duggar is caught looking, and Wilmet is replaced at DH by Pence for rest of night. Kapler outfoxed himself there.

  56. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Pence pinch running? Odd.

  57. zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    The bunt is ancient history.

    • sandog said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:49 pm

      Good riddance as far as I’m concerned.

  58. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Well they’re you go roll up your Lexi Pants higher cause Hunter’s pinch running,maybe soothe can do atleast..

  59. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Wrong part of the lineup to do anything in the ninth. So. its new rules for the tenth.

  60. Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Here we go with the gimmicky extra innings. And Duggar gets to start the bottom of the 10th on 2nd.

  61. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Wow. That didn’t take long.

  62. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Good to bad to ugly for Mr Rogers.

  63. zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    When it goes bad for him, it’s relentless.

  64. zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    He hits too many batters.

    • Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:27 pm

      And too many batters hit him.

    • djloo27 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:28 pm

      Still a great job by Chandler again, Zum!

      • zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:36 pm

        Yes!

  65. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Obviously the Giants can’t handle the new rule we’ll of the leadoff hitter at 2nd to start an inning.
    As Kapler is letting scary Rogers take a beating ferchrissakes…

  66. Carstie Clausen said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Intuition again. Had a really bad feeling about that new 2nd base rule. You could see Rogers being discombobulated by that runner at second for whom he had no responsibility. Then the ump squeezed him on a pitch to Machado that even the Padres announcers claimed caught plenty of the zone. Then all hell broke loose.
    Though he did fine in the ninth, should Kap have started him in the 10th?

  67. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    WTF? Rogers pitched the 9th. He has to pitch to 3 batters in the 10th?

  68. Macdog said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Wow, Kap effs up trying to make a pitching change.

  69. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    WTF Rule are they coming up with on the fly??
    A new Donny 2 step rule installed by the umps??

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

    Donnie 2x redux.

  71. djloo27 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Well fuck this…

  72. willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Giants pen still work in progress. Geez Giants have still only gotten one out, Pads have 6 runs.

  73. unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Ye olde double mound visit. Wow. Fuck this.

    • willedav said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:38 pm

      Remember Kapler was in Dodger system—Son of 2 Trips

      • djloo27 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:44 pm

        Believe it or not, left coasters, Mattingly is probably the most beloved Yankee since Mantle…

    • zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:43 pm

      Kapler was trying to buy more time for the relief pitcher warming up and flubbed it. He didn’t want to use Gott with the Giants behind in the score. Save Gott for tomorrow.

  74. zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    It never felt good having Rogers start the inning with a guy on second. I’d rather have the strike-out guy Gott.

    • alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:42 pm

      A lot of teams are thinking walking the leadoff guy in these extra inning games to automatically set up a DP scenario.I think that’s the way to go personally..

    • unca_chuck said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:46 pm

      I think that would work better for the away team rather than the home team.

  75. alleykat69 said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    Jeez is Psycho on next after the Birds 🦅
    This game got bloodier then the shower scene!!

    • zumiee said, on July 30, 2020 at 10:44 pm

      You get the feeling Hitchcock had some issues.
