    Dubee stands his ground. I still like this kid. I think he’d be great in CF with Yaz in RF.

  2. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:27 pm

    About time the Giants finally get a catchers interference call in their favor!

    • unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:29 pm

      lqtm thought the same thing. Never seen one under the mitt tho.

  3. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:28 pm

    Rough night for Yaz..

  4. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:28 pm

    Cueto is looking more and more gone. When is the trade deadline? Can we tie a boat anchor (Belt or Crawfish) to Cueto?

    • djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:37 pm

      If anyone can, it’s you, Chuck…

  5. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Looks like the cars are gone from the LF wall…

    • xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:20 pm

      just the bump. the Chevron signage, as they say, is still there

  6. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    7 strong for Be Good Johnnie.

  7. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:44 pm

    They’re still there Loo but it looks like shit now.Cars tops dont perturb over the wall anymore.Use to drive Jeff Kent ballistic …”If one of those cars cost me a HR to left, I will personally go out and use a chainsaw on them!”

  8. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 8:52 pm

    Jesus Christ NY!!
    U take forever on an obvious no interference call DP!!
    Pull your head of your asses out and put the pizza pie down..

    • unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:06 pm

      The Giants called that replay.

      • alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:09 pm

        But why?? Did they think Kemp didn’t control the ball in his glove?

  9. Macdog said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    Yaz!

  10. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    Oppo! Yaz is off the ofer.

  11. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    Yaz night just got better!
    3 HR’s tonight..

  12. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Is Wilmer nuts?

    • willedav said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:19 pm

      Craw came off the bag. area play on DP maybe that’s OK but still.
      Yes wilmet had a sure out.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:19 pm

      Yeah take the sure out your up 4 now they have a big inning opportunity!!

  13. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    They fucked that plays up both A’s are safe.Crawdaddy wasn’t on the bag..

  14. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Oh fuck. He’s right. This will take an hour. No outs. Flores deeked Crawfish and fish didn’t stay on the bag.

  15. xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    these IFs don’t know how to play together.

  16. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    They should put numbers on the bases so Wilmer remembers where he is…

    • sandog said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:27 pm

      There’s a reason he’s never been an everday guy….

  17. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Here comes the flaming train wreck.

    • xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:29 pm

      this isn’t even close to a train wreck

  18. willedav said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    the throw did have him beat though. Crawford stays on the bag that’s an out.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:26 pm

      Goddam it Fucking Giants ,Gott and Flores!
      I hate when I’m right my 3:22 post I said 5 HR’s would be hit!!
      Flores was already 2 steps away from 1st base, take the freakin out!!

  19. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Only the Giants can fuck this up!

  20. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Bingo

  21. willedav said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    un effing real

  22. Macdog said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    You Gotta be fuckin’ kidding.

  23. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:23 pm

  24. xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    oh, thank the lard, Mister Rogers is coming in. holy sheet this team . . . .

  25. sandog said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Miller really giving it to Wilmer. Rarely do I hear him this critical.

    • xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:28 pm

      It’s not just Flores, it’s the Giants’ IF prep. No one is ready to play with anyone else. Craw and Belt, maybe, but I bet even they’re confused by now.

      • James said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:36 pm

        But Flores had no reason to involve another IFer. Maybe the criticism is that Belt shoulda been at 1st.

      • willedav said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:39 pm

        james that’s exactly what Baggs and Shea said. Belt at 1b for defense

      • xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:40 pm

        Errores Flores fucked up, but Crawford was confused, too. The manager and the coaches have not been able to form a team out of these guys. Short ST, short late ST, combined with huge turnover — maybe that’s inevitable.

      • James said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:47 pm

        Yeah, Crawford was confused, but I’d attribute that to Flore’s feign towards first. A subpar defender in a position he doesn’t play often leads to a ridiculous mental lapse.

      • xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:56 pm

        so who’s to blame? I think the coaching and managment are “subpar”

  26. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    Flores gets to wear this one.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:33 pm

      Oh yeah for sure Chuck!
      Never leave your wingman, never give up a obvious out!!

  27. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    The nightmare continues!
    Not only Cueto’s thinking WTF does it take to get a win, Gott blows up his ERA to 8.53 and probably can’t pitch tomorrow, and now Mr,Rogers with his 10 plus ERA about to give up more!!

  28. zumiee said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Gott got got.

  29. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Bullpen to the rescue!

    train

    • xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:43 pm

      if you look closely you can see me stepping off the train hitting the ground running

  30. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    Wilmet needs to redeem himself…

  31. willedav said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    cut outs are booing as wilmet comes to bat

  32. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    You have a fucking 5 run lead, Wilmet. Get the 2nd out.

  33. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    They should PR for Wilmet.
    He’s slow as shit…

  34. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Don’t worry. Crawfish is up. Oh boy.

  35. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    Oh dear. The bore core has a last chance.

  36. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    and the bore core hits the floor.

  37. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Pfffffffttt .163 Panda as the bore core continues futility..

  38. zumiee said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    Craw had made up his mind beforehand to take the first pitch. Fastball right down the middle. He swings at the second pitch, a low breaking pitch, and grounds into a force-out.

  39. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    Well we all know what happens when they start a runner at 2nd..

  40. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    Wilmet’s gaffe is just not believable for a major leaguer…

  41. Bozo said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    So this will be my first extra inning game that I’ve stayed up for. At least I think I’m staying up for it.

  42. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Yep a fly all to rag arm Pence a guaranteed run..

  43. xoot said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    this may be the last extra innings game I tolerate to the end this year.

  44. Flavor said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    lol football guys weighing in

  45. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Not sure why we aren’t setting up for the DP.

  46. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    Does the pitcher get charged with an earned run?
    And a loss if the Giants don’t come back?
    How is that fair?
    He had a 1-2-3 inning!

  47. Carstie Clausen said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Memo to Kapler–Gabriel: Do NOT use your closer unnecessarily in the 9th inning even if he needs work. Why did you not use your frequent setup man Tyler Rogers in a no-save situation? Then to compound the brain-fracture, your positioning of players, particularly infielders leaves very much to be desired. If we do not see significant improvements during the home-stand, you will be facing a major uprising from a group of the most serious, dedicated and loyal of all Giants fans. Signed: A Giants fan since 1954.

    P.S. If inane management policies persist, you can blow my horn.

  48. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Shit MrTubbs is are runner to start in extras what else can go wrong?

  49. Bozo said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    So, Garcia throws a perfect inning yet a run scores. Now that’s exciting baseball.

  50. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

  51. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Belt I don’t care to hit at bat!! Loser!!

  52. djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Giant hitters don’t like fastballs down the middle…

  53. Macdog said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Idiot batters, put the fucking ball in play!

  54. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Olsen moves the runner over to 3rd with no outs, do u think Belt could of done that Noooo!!

  55. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Fuck me sideways. A true team effort here tonight.

  56. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    If Kruk says one to measure one to rake one more time, I’m throwing my remote through the TV,

    • alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:11 pm

      He’s running out of cliches to say, rehashing the same old stupid shit.,

  57. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    What a fucked up loss!!
    Blow a 5 run lead in the 9th, just pathetic!!

  58. Bozo said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    What a fucked up game.

  59. Macdog said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    Hey Kruk, the outfield arms don’t matter when the runner doesn’t budge from 2nd.

  60. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    In the end this is good. These fucking front office types can’t be under the misconception, even if every team makes the fucking playoffs like hockey, that this is a remotely decent team. These guys suck and the manager is a moron.

    Fuck all these stupid position-changing bore-core playing bullpen swapping imbecilic pitching blunder moves by Kapler. The season is a joke and this team is a laughingstock. Let’s put Pablo in center, and Longo behind the plate tomorrow.

    Sick of this shit. Cueto has to be waiting for that phone to ring.

  61. willedav said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Loo the run doesn’t count vs. the pitcher. runner on 2b is assumed to have gotten on via error. Hence not earned if he does score.

    • djloo27 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:16 pm

      Ok…but he still gets the loss, right?
      I guess someone has to…

      • Macdog said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:25 pm

        Yes, Garcia gets the loss.

  62. zumiee said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    I don’t see putting this loss on Kapler. He handed over a 7-2 lead to his closer. That should be a slam-dunk.

    • unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:17 pm

      Why is Flores at 1st?

      • zumiee said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:18 pm

        How hard is it to play firstbase?

      • zumiee said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:20 pm

        I played firstbase for a Friday night softball team. That has to say something.

      • unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:23 pm

        He’s a middling infielder on his best day. More often than not he’s below average. I think that was his first time playing 1st for us, He brain farted. Why wasn’t Belt in as the defensive replacement? Oh yeah, they saved him for al all-important K in the 10th. Fucking stupid.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:24 pm

      Yeah but a closer likes to come in with hence a close game.Most closers lose concentration with that kind of lead. Did he really need the work up 5 runs? Could of used a guy like Selman who has pitched real well to close this one out.

      • zumiee said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:29 pm

        These players have been playing baseball professionally their whole adult lives. They should have mental awareness and focus. If not, then they’ll continue to journey around the league. The Giants are giving them their chance to stick somewhere. That’s on the players to perform.

  63. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Jesus fucking Christ. The dreaded ‘closer in a non-closing inning.’ Yeah, things are so different.

    Fuck you, Aurilia. Gott sucked. His defense let him down. And the stupid 10th inning rule got us.

  64. willedav said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    that’s embarrassing. 2 bombs hit batter walk IF screw up all after getting Chapman out to open 9th with 5 run lead, then allowing the lead run to score in 10th without counter.

  65. mrsprtdude said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Didn’t know how the runs scored. Another fuck up. kapler needs to go. Not all his fault, but seems he plays a role in a lot of the losses

    • sandog said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:23 pm

      You don’t wanna know—trust me.

  66. Carstie Clausen said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Memo to contending teams: Having in successive games, given up a grand total of one hit in 10 cumulative IP, Johnny Cueto is far and away the most promising available starter. As a number of organizations are salivating for his services, please be advised of two elements regarding our prized right-hander. He will not be dealt as a solitary entity. Accompanying him will be one slightly-soiled junior-assistant manager who has demonstrated some skills with his employment of analytics. Additional to this individual will be one endearing stuffed Panda. May he bring you good fortune. -(K.)

    • Carstie Clausen said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:26 pm

      Oops: Messed up the signature. Guess K. was too much on the mind. Should have been (Z.)

  67. unca_chuck said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Cueto needs to be traded with a 235 lb Belt on.

  68. alleykat69 said, on August 14, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Kapler truly is an idiot.Postgame, we felt coming off a long road trip I wan tetro save Belt’s legs and not use him on defense, I have utmost confidence in Flores playing 1st base his best position. Lol that’s scary! And also they didn’t play yesterday what are u saving Belt’s rested body for if not on defense for a defensive replacement late in the game?

    • unca_chuck said, on August 15, 2020 at 8:02 am

      Kapler is an idiot. Him and his out of position players. WHen they brought in Crawfish as a d replacement I assumed Belt was there as well. Until, you know.

      He’s not a placeholder, he’s a door stop.

  69. snarkk said, on August 14, 2020 at 11:38 pm

    Missed this one.
    Looks like it was just as well…
