A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

PLLLAAAAYYYY BAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!!!!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 1, 2021

No more sleeps to go, gents. Today we play!!!! Well, tonight. But whatever, real baseball is going down today. I’m as excited for the game as I am for my team. In fact, it’s necessary to be excited for both considering how bad the Giants are going to be this year. But that’s cool, serenity now, serenity now, I can put up with a 70ish win team for another year, at least.

I’m not as sold on the kids as everyone else is. Maybe it’s because we continue to have the bore core shoved down our throats I’ve lost touch with what it’s like to have a young exciting player develop down below and blossom in the semi-luke warm San Francisco sun. Whatever, I’ll worry about that another day…..

Today is the real deal. I don’t remember what we were doing last April 1st. Probably wearing a mask and watching netflix with the pandemic fully throttling our lives. No longer. Chi is looking out that window with a big shit eating grin on his face. The world is alive again……

    Belt hit one to the RF wall in first and now rakes an rbi hit, both off LHP.. ‘I’m not platooning!
    Bring on Kershaw!”

  2. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Donnie doubles in a classic wear em down 8 pitch A.B. Belt brings him an and Slater tater– something I had actually expected from him tonight. Kapler set out a pretty effective lineup tonight, what with the Bore Core all intent on one more good ride in the orange and black.

    Ahhh, thanks Zumie. What’s wrong with ketchup on a hotdog?

    • Bozo said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:45 pm

      I think the international law is mustard and relish on dogs, ketchup and pickles on burgers.

      • Bozo said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:52 pm

        Kraut on dogs, lettuce on burgers, onions on a dog or a burger is acceptable.

  4. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Gasman!

  5. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    61 pitches for Gausman through five. A hit and a walk. Nice performance. Will K. Trot him out for another inning, facing the 9, 1 and two hitters in their lineup?

  6. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    The Mariners pitcher was up over 85 in the 5th. I hope Kotter shows a little faith

    • alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:53 pm

      I don’t know why the Mariners keep stretching him out at 98 pitches and down 5 zip, pretty dumb

  7. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Ask Clint Eastwood when he told a fellow cop at a murder scene.
    I can take the muggers, rapist,the murders, pimps but seeing you with ketchup on a hot dog disgust me’
    No one and I mean no one puts ketchup on a Hotdog 🌭!!

  8. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    It was Tyne Daley

    • alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:01 pm

      No actually it was some unknown cop in Sudden Impact with his ex wife Sondra Locke and this cop shows up at the crime scene stuffing his face with ketchup on the hotdog.Locke who shot a rapist who raped her and her sister at a amusement park , so her 1st revenge killing was after she let him pick her up was to shoot em in his nuts!

  9. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    And he’s a stupid actor

  10. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    At 99 pitches through 6, Gonzales stretched the outing. It got a bit elastic with those 3 dingers. He’s known as a workhorse, but with a start like this one will it still work for him in September?

  11. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    Friend of mine used to work at a bar in Carmel and said Clint would sit in the back corner and give himself a couple hours to scope the hottest chick and bang her. Said it happened a couple times a week. This was after his stint as mayor

  12. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Gausman, with 2 outs and the 6 pitch walk in the sixth may be a bit gassed. Are the bullies fueling up?

  13. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Out of the 6th at 79 pitches on a hard-hit ball to Mowreese. Good start, but no need to prove he can go more than six in a fine outing. Bullies should be good for three IP.

  14. willedav said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Baggs on twitter said, “…Gausman has a very Jason Schmidt vibe about him.”
    Sure looked good tonight, 6 innings 1 hit.

  15. xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Dubon looked so pleased to toss that fly out up to the CF fans. He really wants this job.

  16. djloo27 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Kuip seems to be tuning out Kruk’s rambling tangents…

    • Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:18 pm

      I know I have.

  17. mrsprtdude said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Yaz looking not so good but Glausman looking great. Slater and Buster! Just as I predicted! Go SF!

  18. Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Dusty yanks Greinke after 6 shutout innings vs. A’s.

    • djloo27 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:15 pm

      Did he give him the game ball?

      • xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:20 pm

        The a’s would’ve charged them so maybe not

      • alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:22 pm

        Lulz

  19. djloo27 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    I hope that throw from Dubon was an aberration…

    • xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:22 pm

      It wasn’t.

  20. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Yeah and delusional Kruk thinks he has the best arm in the outfield..

  21. James said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Pulling Gausman there after Fraley made him work the previous PA was a nice move by Kapler.

  22. snarkk said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Kat – your 9:04.
    Jessica Walter = Evelyn in Play Misty for Me.
    She just passed away last week. 80.
    Her Evelyn was every bit as good or better than Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction.
    I had a very good meal once in the Sardine Factory restaurant in Monterey, which has a scene with Clint eating there, and walking out of it.
    Clint’s first service as a movie director. Good flick…

  23. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Kapler stretched Gausman a bit too far in this first game of the season. He did not get a lot of work in ST, so flakes of rust showed up in the 7th. Excellent performance through six.

    After a shaky walk to Fraley, Baragar handled Murphy to get out of the inning with no further damage. Kid had a very low WHIP last season, with batters hitting just a bit past the Mendoza line against him.

    • xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:35 pm

      Gausman looked good in every way imo. He exited on time.

  24. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Agree Snarkk, she was exceptional in that role as a psycho bitch!
    Great actress I didn’t even know she passed away, so sad RIP Jessica Walters..

  25. xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Wilmer has a very quick swing. Great DH.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:43 pm

      My same thoughts exactly. He’s become a hitting machine. Late July, an A.L. team in the hunt finds themselves without a solid D.H. Would they make an offer SF couldn’t refuse?

  26. James said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    If only we didn’t pointlessly have to go through one more year without it.

  27. Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    There’s a Crawford error after all.

  28. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    Jeebus. Whistling past the grave yard

    • Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:52 pm

      Chuck, you beat me to it. Was gonna go with Whisling in the dark. Graveyard reminds me of Duggar. Is Whisler channeling his first years with Atlanta rather than last season with the Twins? He was pretty bad early in his career.

  29. Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    I’ve seen enough of Wisler.

  30. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    This nicely paced game had run into the ditch

  31. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Has

  32. djloo27 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Christ, here we go…

  33. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Fuck me

  34. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Not digging Garcia either right now.He nearly ended Seager’s career with that head hunting pitch..

  35. Winder said, on April 1, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Garcia is all over the place

  36. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Cardiac Giants bullpen showing up early already this season.,

  37. Winder said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    They gotta put in someone who can throw a fucking sinker

  38. Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Next.

  39. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Unbelievable shit..

  40. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Should of stuck with Gausman..

  41. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    65 pitches for 1 out.

  42. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Garcias’s been all over the place. Secondary pitches, mostly sliders not working. Kept it on outside edge vs a. LH batter in Trammell, but the dude fouled off his fastballs and drew the walk. No high octane gas to blow it by them and finesse not working in the Seattle dank. Oops,. Now I notice Winder beat me to it. A bit slow at 12:09 CDT.

  43. xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Rogers. Our fucking closer.

  44. Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    And this is the guy Kap brings in with the bases loaded.

  45. snarkk said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Giants Pen looks a little shaky for game 1 …

  46. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    A little!

  47. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Wow. We may lose by 10 at this rate

  48. xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    The old men can’t play D no more? Well, it’s late.

  49. snarkk said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Hmm.
    Hope this kind of mess they get out of their system. If not, long season ahead…

  50. Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Holy crap.

  51. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Twins were leading the Brewers 5-2 going into the 9th and their new closer let em tie it and then their second reliever lost it in the 10th. I thought that was bad. Giants relievers sure showed the Twinkies how to fuck up royally.

  52. snarkk said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Brutal.
    3 walks.
    Hit batter.
    Error.
    3 hits allowed.
    I think Giants will have a lot of high scoring games this season.
    They will hit, and score. But, they may not pitch and field too well…

  53. xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    As is, 72. But things will change

  54. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    This inning is longer than the 7 before it

  55. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    That was so painful to watch I have no words but expletives right now.,

    • xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:20 pm

      That’s sort of what my son just texted me.

    • unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:21 pm

      Fuckfuckfuckfuckfyckfuck?

  56. Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Where was Moronta, or maybe McGee?

    • Winder said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:22 pm

      Yeah, Kap has to answer for some of this. They still have the 3 batter rule?

      • Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:23 pm

        Yes.

  57. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Or Boney Moroney?

  58. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Disked em. Can’t say this game’s not been interesting.

  59. xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Oh oh. I better pour another drink.

  60. snarkk said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    The Dick strikes…

  61. Macdog said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Dick!

  62. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Walk softly and swing a big dick dick dick!

  63. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Dick Dick Dickerson!!!
    What a crazy game , they do fight hard I’ll give them that!

    • snarkk said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:23 pm

      They can hit…

  64. snarkk said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    That error in the 8th — not a great throw by Belt, but Craw should have had that throw. He weirdly had his foot on the bag anchored way on the 3rd base side, and reached across for the throw in slow motion like he had arthritis and/or had just toked on a joint. Not a good look…

  65. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Quick work by McGee. What a relief after that woo-ha in the 8th. Can he go two innings?

  66. zumiee said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:36 pm

  67. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Yeah it was a feeble effort Crawford has to glove that..

  68. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    I hate this stupid rule..

    • djloo27 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:47 pm

      It’s the stupidest thing ever…

  69. xoot said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    I’ve always thought that looking back to second I the stretch before firing home was tough on pitchers. This new rule really sucks, imo.

  70. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Gawd. I guess we didn’t look at enough pen arms.

  71. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Didn’t we have 85 pitchers at one point?

  72. Carstie Clausen said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Yessir, yessir, three bags full in the bottom of the 10th. What does that get us?

  73. unca_chuck said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Fuckfuckfuckfuck.

    Gasman gets the hose

  74. alleykat69 said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Alvarez you SUCK as all of the BP besides McGee!!

  75. zumiee said, on April 1, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    I’m pretty sure I could have gone in and walked everybody I faced. A major leaguer really should be able to play better than me.
