Get Past SD For A Spot

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 25, 2020

Well, here we are. The final regular series of 2020. It certainly doesn’t feel like it should be ending so quickly but that’s what a 60 game season will do to you. We might get in if we win 2 games, we will likely get in if we win 3. San Diego’s motivation level is low so we might have a chance. Either way, if they do get in I’ll feel better about their walk of shame spot because they will have at least beaten a top team to get in……

    Oh no! Baby don’t do it

    It’s Kapler’s fault.

  3. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:35 pm

    *gulp*

  4. djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:37 pm

    A lesser outfielder would’ve been fooled.
    Not the Grave Duggar!

  5. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:38 pm

    Hooooooooooooooooooooo doggies.

  6. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:38 pm

    Yes! Game 1 win!!

    You mean me? All I said is it doesn’t make one fucking bit of difference how a team compiles a good OPS, the number of runs you score will be basically the same. It’s very hard to compile a good team OPS without hitting for power … and drawing a fair number of walks. It is not all that uncommon for a team to hit a lot of HRs and have a shitty team OPS, and a mediocre offense.

    No, not just you. And I wasn’t talking about team OPS I was talking about individual OPS which OFTEN is not fueled by only power. You DID support the Joey Gallo pick up, should we have done it, and that was a well supported comment.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:50 pm

      I guess Matt Olsen sucks with that OPS of .745. Even with the 32 walks.

      • Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:00 pm

        Matt Olsen is a poor man’s Gallo. And if he isn’t careful he’s going to be a Dave Kingman…..

      • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:04 pm

        Heh heh . . . the new age baseball player. Home run or nothing

      • djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:07 pm

        Kingman would be much sought after in today’s game, wouldn’t he?

  9. Bozo said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    Whew.

  10. pawliekokonuts said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    phew

    • djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:43 pm

      Pawlie: You seem rejuvenated!

      • pawliekokonuts said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:09 pm

        it passes

  11. Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:41 pm

    Ok so basically the biggest game of the year is now being handed to a dude who hasn’t pitched since Aug 7th, who has pitched 3 times this season all 3 teams been terrible. Ok, let’s roll…..

  12. Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    This Smarge game is MONUMENTAL. If we win we have a little leeway to split this weekend. If we lose we have to win both. And the game is being given to fucking Smarglebarg. I give him a 3% chance of pitching well enough for us to win

    • zumiee said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:44 pm

    • djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:46 pm

      Did any pitcher (Suarez?) get activated or brought in from the Forbidden Zone for Game 2?
      I have no idea what the rules are this season…

    • alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:49 pm

      Só basically when we Bomb Japan with no fuel to get back to the carriers, this turns into a suicide mission …

  13. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:44 pm

    Good thing this was only 7 innings.

    • zumiee said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:46 pm

  14. Carstie Clausen said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:47 pm

    East coasters beat me to the whews. What can you say, but Watson started off bad and managed to settle down and rescue the must game. This next one looks chancy at best, but who knows, maybe for all the bucks he’s gotten from SF maybe Smardj will surprise everyone…and I mean everyone…myself especially.

  15. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:48 pm

    Rays up on the Phillies 6-4 in the 9th!

  16. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    Phillies lose.

  17. djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 6:59 pm

    • willedav said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:03 pm

      yeah remember that, Gene Mauch.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:06 pm

      Till the ’69 Cubbbies.

  18. Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:01 pm

    I mean let’s fucking go, right? What else do we have to do tonight?????

  19. willedav said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    Cards up 7-0 second game vs. Brewers. that would be 30 Ls for MIL, same as Phils now. Giants and Reds (currently ahead of Twins 4-1) have 28. If SF can come up with one more W should be in as WC with Cincy.

  20. djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:03 pm

    I hope I’m never forced to choose between by door slamming dummy and my dancing Giant fan.
    I love them both so much…

  21. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:14 pm

    No on Stanton MacDog..

  22. James said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    Maybe Smarge has his Zito moment.

  23. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:17 pm

    That’s right. We are the away team. Be nice to get 5 or 6 runs for Smargle to play with.

  24. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:20 pm

  25. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:21 pm

    I remember when the Giants gave the biggest game of the year to rookie Solomon Torres, that one was not their finest moment.Atleast Shark has experience and it’s not an elimination game..

  26. Winder said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:23 pm

    Wow. Just got home and looked at the score. That must have been a fantastic game. Congrats to the Giants. Lets go for two.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:27 pm

      It was great till the near disaster 7th.

  27. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:27 pm

    Not taking long for Krukow to suck Smargl’s pole..

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:28 pm

      If he gets the win, there will be a line . . .

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:28 pm

      Don’t forget your Nurx. . .

  28. Carstie Clausen said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:31 pm

    One in the books for the Smardj. That’s a victory of sorts. If nothing else, he may be bringing a bit of pride to the contest.

  29. djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:31 pm

    Now was that so difficult?

  30. Winder said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:32 pm

    That was a nice at bat for Belt

  31. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:32 pm

    Amy G is such a bonehead.Can she really believe the Giants are bringing back the Shark.Shit 5/90 they’ve been counting down the days since Sabean/Evans gave him that ridiculous contract..

  32. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:33 pm

    Wow. The check swing attack.

  33. xoot said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:33 pm

    Three check swing hits? Well, Belt’s was slightly more. Wtf. Take it.

  34. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:34 pm

    A beat-the-shift double and two check swings, whatever it takes.

  35. Carstie Clausen said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    BB9 roaring down the turnpike like a big-rig in heat on two groundouts and scoring. Yay!

  36. Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:39 pm

  37. Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    just takin’ this one inning at a time…..

  38. Winder said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    That was a pretty economical inning for Smardj.

  39. Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    Twinner would have been fucking all in today. I miss Twinner being all in….

  40. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    First K!

  41. Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    I’m a total hypocrite I think the bible is complete nonsense. And the idea of heaven and hell is comical to me. But when I get all agitated and emotional I start imaging dudes looking down on this shit. I really believe Twinner is watching this game tonight and rooting his ass off, what is wrong with me?????

    • djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:14 pm

      You’re a dunderhead!

  42. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:01 pm

    And now the first run.

  43. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    Pull him. Jesus, that’s about the longest one I’ve seen here.

  44. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    That went to hell in a hurry.

  45. xoot said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    His personalized license plate says: sHRk

  46. Bozo said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    Man, Tatis hit the shit out of dat one.

  47. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:06 pm

    Has that ball landed yet!!

  48. Flavor said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:12 pm

    i know he hit a bomb tonight but Acuna hit one 495 earlier, check it out on mlb.com if you want to see a monster bomb

  49. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:14 pm

    Give me a break K&K that’s a big league play that should of easily been made.Dick is out by a step and a half .Error all the way..

  50. Winder said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:16 pm

    Another good at bat for Belt

  51. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:19 pm

    Hooo. Thank you Garcia!

  52. Bozo said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:19 pm

    Take that run any way you can get it.

  53. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    Thank god Padres defense is sucking balls this inning..

  54. djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:21 pm

  55. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    Wow. Padres suddenly iffy for their playoff run.

  56. willedav said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    wow hate to see that. As Blade said earlier, Lamet is good looking young pitcher.

  57. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    Wow Lament was probably pissed at his defense and took him self out.Either way good break for the Giants.

  58. Carstie Clausen said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:31 pm

    Some team might give a modest contract to Smardj. He ran into trouble the second time around a very tough lineup. Indicates he might could make for a three inning designated starter, much like Webb needed.

    • djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:33 pm

      He’d be more valuable to the 49ers than the Giants right now…

      • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:38 pm

        Hah!!!

      • pawliekokonuts said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:39 pm

        or Notre Dame

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:37 pm

      Just glad he won’t be our problem soon.

  59. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:44 pm

    Bart is REALLY due.

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

    fuck

    • djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:47 pm

      He’s the new Jason Tyner…

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:50 pm

      I was gonna say Kuiper.

      • djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:55 pm

        You gotta play around in B/R more often.
        Enough with that silly day job…

  61. djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:52 pm

    Did I hear the Marlins & Reds clinched?
    No idea if that’s good, bad or neither for us…

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:53 pm

      We are fighting for 8 now with The Brewers and Phillies (I think)

    • unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:56 pm

      I guess we could reach 7th but we’d have to win out and the Cards fold up.

  62. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:52 pm

    I really like this Garcia.

  63. xoot said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Bart has signal trouble with Spanish speaking pitchers. Wtf? They’re signals.

    • djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:56 pm

      Bart doesn’t know how to say “no” in Spanish…

    • alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:57 pm

      Maybe he needs to put a taco 🌮 down for his signals..

  64. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 8:58 pm

    Kinda weird that it’s the 6th inning and it might be the last time up for the top of the order batters.

  65. djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    I like that we’re hanging around…

  66. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    Willburrrrrrrrrrrr! Let’s go!

  67. djloo27 said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:05 pm

    Wilmet was a notorious clutch hitter in his Met days.
    How about now?

  68. alleykat69 said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:05 pm

    We need another Wilmet bigtime moment !

  69. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    Homer Flores!

  70. unca_chuck said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    YEeeeeeehaaaaaaaawww! Wiilllllbbuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

  71. xoot said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    And there it is Fuck Yeah!!!!

  73. Macdog said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    There’s the Pummelranz we know!

  74. chipower9 said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Wilmet for President!

  75. willedav said, on September 25, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    wilmet strikes again. Still favorite guy to watch hit.
