Trade Deadline Approaching

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 25, 2020

Big series starting tonight, one in which I have no feeling whatsoever—my gut is traditionally inclined to expect a trip to the woodshed but this has been a weird year so I’m cool to watch it unfold….

Trade deadline is next week. I am on record as saying nothing significant will happen for obvious reasons already stated. But it’s still fun to kick around trade ideas so where do you guys stand on this one:

Cueto and Flores for Clint Frazier. I really don’t think the Yanks would do this but they have been decimated by injuries and both Cueto and Flores could be a huge boost to their post season run. For our part we get rid of Cueto’s salary in 2021 and the buyout. If they didn’t offer Frazier would you take Andujar? I probably would just to get another future piece although I’m not a biug Andujar fan. Still, getting rid of that Cueto contract would be nice.

I’d also be just as happy to watch him pitch the rest of the season. He’s been very good and entertaining and I put a high price tag on that this season. (same feelings about Wilmet, btw).

Ouch. This now hurts more than I realized. Fucking kick this guy OUT of fan base immediately.

    OK I don’t get the argument visitors have any advantage. Home team with the hammer of last ups always does imo.
    Giants can tie this up with a bunt and a sac fly and play on. Most teams as visitors don’t do that I don’t think though batting order does make a difference.

    At least hit it to the right side.

  3. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    Hooooooo. Bart lucked out on that one.

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:41 pm

      Sure did.

  4. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    None of those were in the strike zone, Craw.

  5. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    oh Craw had IF in and Ks.

  6. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    TIED!!!!! Doobie Dubon!!

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:42 pm

      lulz!

  7. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    That was ballsy by Bart.Usually your dead meat on a ball in front of you.Seager blew that

  8. Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Tie game!

    Dubiee, Dubiee, Did it.

  11. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Flaco ties it up! See imo home team has just as much chance for a “cheapo” run as visitors do.

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:45 pm

      Home team used to have better than an even chance, though.

      • willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:57 pm

        mm I don’t get it man. It’s always going to be incumbent on away team to score in extras. If they don’t they are going to lose eventually.
        Under this format both have an equal chance to do damage. The home team can always play for a bigger inning if they need to, so that’s an advantage too, no?

  12. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Doobie Doobie Wah This game is tied!!!

  13. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    Bart’s rookie mistake on the basepath worked out!

  14. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    Well atleast Yaz will be on second base next inning!
    Good job to comeback and get this tie back.
    I’m thinking Bart needs an interpreter for all his pitchers tonight, nobody’s on the same wavelength..

  15. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Maybe they should start with a runner on 1st in the 10th, a runner on 2nd in the 11th, a runner on 3rd in the 12th, runners on 2nd & 3rd in the 13th, and bases loaded every inning after…

    • xoot said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:06 pm

      just flip a fucking coin

  16. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    Props to east coast for staying up. this is already 4 hours old.

  17. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    jesus fucking christ

  18. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    another wtf run! Rogers couldn’t tag him?

  19. Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Goddamn again.

  20. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Unbelievable piece of shit single as Mr.Rogers does the belly flop as Turner hops over him..

  21. snarkk said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    Kapler should have put in a strikeout pitcher there with two out and the go ahead on 3rd. So, now that damage is done, he brings him in …

    • James said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:01 pm

      You would rather have had Selman face Turner than Rogers? Rogers is averaging a K an inning.

  22. snarkk said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    They have to hold this to the one run…

  23. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    Turner makes for a classic Dodger villain for Giants fans.

  24. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    This guy is who Wilmet homered off of in LA.

  25. Carstie Clausen said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    Any idea how many at-em balls we hit tonight?

  26. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    Yes!!! Jeeeebuss!!!!! Longo FTT!!

  27. Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    Tie game!!

  28. xoot said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    this runner on second in extras was a brilliant way to shorten tie games . . . . .

    • Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:07 pm

      Haha.

    The trade for him was dumb, but I’ve developed some respect for Longoria.
    Definitely a solid pro…

    • willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:07 pm

      Agreed. Tampa is still sending few mil back to SF every year too.
      Maybe Giants ownership should take note–give a little, save lot more long run.

  30. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:05 pm

    Roberts iPad must have been asleep earlier when Longo did exact same thing vs. shift.

  31. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    You keep hanging in there East Coasters the Giants will reward you!!

  32. Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    Fuckin’ ump blows ball 4 to Belt.

  33. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    Softballed Belt.

  34. snarkk said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    So long Solano !…

      I love the miserable Dodger fan in the background…

  36. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:09 pm

  37. xoot said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    • Carstie Clausen said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:13 pm

      “Nothing does it like seven-up, seven-up”. No that dates me…about the only dates I’ve been getting lately. Hell, I won’t be even 76 for another three weeks.

  41. snarkk said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    It’s kinda fun when the Giants have a squad that can actually hit and score ! …

  42. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    Thank you Lord!!
    My 11:06 post did it for my east coast friends!!
    Solano!!!! Barrels up!!!

    • Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:11 pm

      Right on, Kat!

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:13 pm

  43. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Bart looked awkward during the celebration…

  44. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Hey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. Carstie Clausen said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Now that wasoneutterly incredible victory, wearing em down, matching them again, pitcher works through Flores and Belt and maybe figured he could let up a bit after Solano has been a bit cold lately. His mistake. We take.
    One of you music magicians maybe could give us something by the Scots 60’s icon Donovan Leitch.

  46. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:18 pm

    Crazy game. 5 comebacks!

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:18 pm

  47. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    Here you go, Stix . . .

    • Carstie Clausen said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:27 pm

      Thanks, Chuck: Care for coinkydinks? Currently I’m reading “Meet Me in Atlantis” by Mark Adams. Weird, huh?

    • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:30 pm

      Great song Chuck! This game had plenty of rolling waves 🌊 in it!

    • unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:30 pm

      Somehow I sensed that!

      Just started Into the Wild by Krakauer.

      • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:35 pm

        I’m about halfway through this novel:

  48. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:26 pm

    Cueto gets a little redemption for the early games the pen gave up for him.

  49. Carstie Clausen said, on August 25, 2020 at 11:44 pm

    Loo, now how’m I sposta concentrate with those bubbles staring me in the face? It may be only seven games, but this crazy bunch is reminding me of the Miracle Mets. Even this much is totally against the odds. Some of the Vegas oddsmakers must be about to pull their hair oust.

    Pull one out tomorrow and it’s .500 baseball for a team which just over a week ago was at 8-16. Even during the unmentioned “closer” days the hitters just kept coming on back. How many times has this team rallied from behind in this now 31 game season?
