A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Surprising Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 6, 2021

Man, I’d already penciled us in for 36 losses at the hands of the Pads and Dodgers. What to do? Might have to update that prediction. Terrible to see a superstar like Tatis go down but they sure look less imposing without him, aye?

Disco is going to be a main key for us this year. Assuming Gausman and Cueto can stay healthy, we need a reliable #3 and it’s possible he is going to be that guy. You can’t have only 40% of your SP’s bringin’ it with the rest flailing. He looked good in his first start.

    I believe they should shut him down and have the surgery now, it’s only going to be problematic the rest of the season.Get it done your shoulder is shredded Fernando and u want be helping the club by keeping to play with it..

    Injury delay? Wha happen?

    Don’t tell me let me guess. A hanging slider.

    Wisler kinda sucks.

    Ballgame. What did Zaidi think of taking on Whisler’s Mother with that hanging 81 mph slider which Carrotstick read like his bible.

    Gott Wisler?

      Really, reall, good.

    Hanging sliders go far

    And there goes a Whistler of a HR..

    My next question is on Kapler. Even if it was the bottom of the lineup, why did Whisler, who has only one pitch, get the call again tonight? Evaluation for a 7th inning role. There are likely some better choices on the taxi-squad. One more outing like this and I say, DFA. Fuck the investment if someone waivers him in. Lot’s of choices who could hardly do worse.

    Wandy snookered him there. Nothing but 4-seamers to Cronenworth and then he slipped in a slider which ended in a convenient and badly needed GDP.

    I would bring Selman are Leone back first, with Doval on a holding pattern at the outer marker on the flight wait..

    • Carstie Clausen said, on April 6, 2021 at 9:48 pm

      Selman was good last season and Leone sparkled in ST. Both could be good choices. Doval may need some AAA reps for a spell.

    The return of Melonhead.

    • Carstie Clausen said, on April 6, 2021 at 10:02 pm

      Did the Melon have that knuckle=curve when he was with the Giants?

      • alleykat69 said, on April 6, 2021 at 10:06 pm

        The only thing he had with the Giants was agony!

    Has Yaz hit anything? He may be crashing back to Earth

    Called it immediately in the 7th when Whistler’s Mother grooved that hanging slider to Carrotstick. Giants strikeouts tonight were astronomical. They faced three good pitchers, but should have had more than 5 men reach base. Does it look like they’re swinging for the fences? Pitching coaches need to preach contact-hitting at least till some of them slide into their groove.

    Tomorrow’s offerings by Snell may get them fishing on a long-line. So we go 2-3 now. It should be reversed, considering that melt-down Mariners opener.

    The Jethro Tull deal with the rock band featuring the flute kind of blows my mind.
    The singer probably owned the PA and the drum kit and allowed the other guys to join the band as long as they let him bust out the flute from time to time.

    Gott Whisler???

      LaCoss’s sinker, Gott’s slider . . .
