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.

    Longo is fucking jogging out there. WTF?

  2. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:38 pm

    Belt’s locked in best I’ve seen him hit in ages..
    Cost Ur Anus a chance for a win, sure that pissed him off..

  3. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    The lost art of advancing the runner…

  4. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    Time for Bart’s first homerun!

  5. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    Are not..

  6. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    There have been chances.

  7. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    We need to get those cardboard cutout fans back into the game!

  8. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Bart looking overmatched.

  9. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    Here we goooooo ….. Hopefully Gott won’t get got

  10. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Gott it done.

  11. xoot said, on August 25, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Gott luck? So far.

  12. James said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    How does someone with a 98 MPH sinker like that even have an ERA?

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:09 pm

      I don’t trust the gun.
      Or the teletimers on the Belmont turf courses…

  13. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    Horrible call there, but I’ll take it.

  14. Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Quite the odd steal of home:

  15. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Belt having a night. Just needs a triple for the cycle.

  16. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    And now Belt is batting .308

  17. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    Jeeeeeebus. Time for Bart to arrive.

  18. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Bart time for a Grandslam!!

  19. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    He’s watched 2 piped pitches for called 1st strikes.

  20. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    Joey needs to hit the bag in stride.

  21. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    He’s out..

  22. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Ump really blew a call that wasn’t that close.

  23. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Oh boy. Panda’s curtain call? Good God. He’s gone tomorrow. He’s got to be 315 lb.

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:28 pm

      That was ridiculously non-competitive by Sandoval.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:31 pm

      Now that he made a quick 3 pitch K, Panda can sprint to the spread and just leave crumbs for his teammates..

  24. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Bart’s ABs tonight have looked rookie-ish.

  25. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Geez Hunter Pence redux for Tubby..

  26. mrsprtdude said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Bart hasn’t looked good but at least there is hope. Why fat panda is still on this team is a great freaking question. If Ruf still in he would have been batting. Even LA announcers questioning the rightly left crap taking out a guy who roped the ball twice to pinch hit a guy 2/last 17. We are 1/17 tonight with RISP. Augh

    • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:34 pm

      Yeah stupid, Panda can’t hit right handed! Hell he can barely hit left handed now as well..

  27. Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    Sandoval has got to go.

  28. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    Anyone else lose the feed?

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:34 pm

      Yes.

  29. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    And now the Giants channel has gone off the air on my DirecTV.

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:35 pm

      2 out nobody on…

  30. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    Bummer, can you get the idiots on FS1?

  31. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    It’s on FS1; not blacked out for me.

    • zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:38 pm

      It’s Pierzynski, but you can’t have everything.

    • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:40 pm

      I still have K&K but I have an Apple box/ YouTubeTV

  32. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    WTF happened to Coonroid? 101???

  33. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Terrible AB from Sando but BC tonite have 8 of Giants total of 9 hits. Flores has hit couple rocket at ems.

    • willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:40 pm

      Craw makes it 9 of 10. time for rest of them to wake up this ain’t gonna happen too often.

  34. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Coonrod K’s Joc with 101 FB, if you believe that.
    Inning over…

    • alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:43 pm

      I’d give Coonrod a shot as closer.He has attitude you need and not afraid to go inside..

  35. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    We’ve had about 20 weird grounders tonight.

  36. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    A guy like Dubon should have an approach at the plate that doesn’t get the big shift on defense.

  37. Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    And Dubon strikes himself out again.

  38. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    Jesus Dubon! A sac bunt would of been nice but noooo!!!

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:50 pm

      This team can’t afford a .250 singles hitter in CF…

  39. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Yaz iz due

  40. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    The rare bad game from Yaz.

  41. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    So many chances tonight, looks like they’re just going to tease us to the end…

  42. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Yaz & Wilmet were bound to cool off.
    Better hope it’s temporary…

    • willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:01 pm

      Solano too for that matter.

  43. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Bore Core is 9-10 tonight so they’re that..

  44. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Fucking S-later has been such a fragile guy. If he could saty healthy.

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

    Have a night, BELT!

  46. chipower9 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    Belted X 2!

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

    Belt Baby he’s on 🔥
    4-4 2Bombs!!

  48. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    I really don’t fuckin’ believe it!

  49. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Belt!!!!!

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

    unbelievable. 4-4 scores 2 drives in 5 OPS over 1.000.

    • willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:12 pm

      Didn’t Kruk say Jansen was 7-7 in saves ops coming in?

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

    Best I’ve ever seen Belt play bar none!!

  52. Carstie Clausen said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    OMG!!! Belted vs. Kenley Friggen Jansen no less. This has to be his premiere performance since the World Championships. Whatever he’s eating, smoking, drinking or who knows needs to be shared with his teammates. Such an unexpected resurrection. Maybe he’s a bit color-blind—seeing red instead of Dodger blue.

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

    One thing the goofy extra inning rule does is take away the home advantage in extra innings. The visiting team can score a cheap run and immediately put pressure on the home team.

    • unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:19 pm

      Yep. Distinct advantage to the away team.

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:19 pm

      Like losing the overtime coin toss?

    • willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:19 pm

      idk Zum getting only 1 might not be enough.

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

    Dogs 2-0 in extras so far.

  55. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    If the visitors don’t score, home team can win with 2 “productive” outs or 1 plus an error wild pitch yada yada.

    • unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:30 pm

      Well, the away team can do the same thing. They have an easy win without really doing anything,

  56. xoot said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Yaz, Solano, Bart — zip. But Belt. Strange game.

  57. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Jesus Christ, pitch already!!!!

  58. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    wtf

  59. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    5 minutes per pitch.

  60. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Ok that was ugly for Bart and Garcia..

  61. Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Goddamn.

  62. willedav said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    all fairness Zum that’s about as cheapo a run as you can get.

  63. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Too freakin long between pitches I thought they snuck in Corey Gearrin on me..

  64. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Well, that sucked.

  65. alleykat69 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    We stink in extra innings don’t we? I remember the 7 spot are more game

  66. mrsprtdude said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Hershieser on SN LA doing the game. BEFORE that lame sequence already discussing Bart struggling. Looks down too much so not ready to give the signs. He is already calling him the Mike hargrove “human rain delay’ for how long he takes to run through the signs. Maybe when Z saying he wasn’t ready he was on to something?
    Bummer if it ends up a loss that way

  67. xoot said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Why doesn’t Bart wear one of those high arm guards on the right side? Other catchers do. Why couldn’t Garcia just throw what Bart told him to throw? And why is Rogers always the go to?

  68. Carstie Clausen said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    That man on second notion is totally shit.

  69. mrsprtdude said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    14 NL relievers have ERa under 1.00 Dodgers have 6 of them. Sick. We did a good job after Cueto today. Sigh

  70. James said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Another walk up song suggestion for Joey Bart:

    https://genius.com/Vincent-and-yetep-same-page-lyrics

  71. djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Bart signaling for Rogers to throw overhand…

  72. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Wow. Lug nuts are loosening up.

  73. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Why did Craw field that ball out on the outfield grass?

    • unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:36 pm

      It would have been by him where he was positioned. He was shaded close to 2nd and had to go to the hole.

  74. unca_chuck said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Bart has been fine calling games up until tonight.

    • Macdog said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:40 pm

      He also seemed to be fine with all the pitchers between Cueto and Garcia.

  75. zumiee said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    It’s amazing only one run scored.

    • djloo27 said, on August 25, 2020 at 10:38 pm

      Can’t blame Chandler, the comeback Friend…
