Who Are These Guys?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 7, 2021

Only a few games into the season and this is already feeling like a weird year. SF is near the top of the league in HR’s but I still don’t trust this offense. I’m not really sweatin’ the solo bombs those will even out over the course of the season. I just look at the line up and it’s not doing anything for me. But then there are all those bombs. So I don’t know what to think.

Kapler (and many of the players) have given credit for the power boon to the coaching staff and the new hitting approach. Could that really be all it takes? Just a different “approach”? I dunno, I’m not sold. The aged POTD still resonates with me…….

    Just watched the end of the game…I figured we would win two in Seattle and lose two in SD so we essentially head home where we were expecting at .500, so solid series in SD…think at best we are 75 win team but could get to .500 if they keep team like the Padres contained.

      The key is that the team keeps even the most pessimistic among us believing that there’s the slightest chance of a wild card at least until the end of July. The final record won’t matter much if they achieve that.

        I am actually hoping we are not near .500 in late July to trade any valuable vet we can….all of ’em…

        I’ve come to grips with the fact that the chances of any of our vets being dealt at the TD are really slim.
        Posey never.
        Longoria still has too much money coming.
        That leaves Cueto and the Brandons. Only a desperate “win now” team with injury problems would consider any of them assuming they were performing well. And we’d get shit in return and probably still have to eat salary.
        Forget it…

        Tradeable vets = 500 team

    To Xoot‘s prior, but of course, the message of affirming positivity is right there in the message. I’ve named the script WSWINB4IGO, in honor of the ultimate Positivist, although he was a little lacking in rational faculties.

      only true Flap vets will remember him

      • djloo27 said, on April 7, 2021 at 7:48 pm

        Flavor, if you’re up to it, shoot me a Carson update…

      • djloo27 said, on April 7, 2021 at 7:51 pm

        I’ll always be partial to Midwest Ed…

      • Flavor said, on April 7, 2021 at 7:57 pm

        signed every comment with his name.

    • xoot said, on April 7, 2021 at 7:48 pm

      I had to Google it. As to James’s claim that his Tyler Rogers spam program will be as mild as Tyler himself, I wonder. What will happen when someone clicks on reply?

      • James said, on April 7, 2021 at 8:18 pm

        I expect Flavor to write a procedure changing all of the comments to “I’m a Bitch.”

  3. djloo27 said, on April 7, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    Tyler Rogers looks like somebody Dorothy scoops up on the way to Oz.
    I really can’t explain it…

    I remember the WSWINS guy. Yeah, *positivity* is not exactly a word I would use to describe him. He was a dick. Always kissing TF’s ass too. I had a dust-up with him at least once, Dirt did too I believe.

    • James said, on April 7, 2021 at 8:34 pm

      I think he once declared that any criticism of the team was an unpatriotic breach, and that there was simply no point in posting anything unsupportive. At least I remember something like that.

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on April 7, 2021 at 8:51 pm

        Yes James, things like that, along with statements to other Flappers like “who are you to criticize a general manager” and to TF like “I don’t know how you put up with it here”…. Oh well. He got his WS wins, and then disappeared. Unless he’s still here posting under a different name….

    He and SOAD were especially tiresome.

    Romo was terrible for the A’s today. Lots of hanging sliders. I’m watching the replay of their game.

  7. xoot said, on April 7, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    I just saw a report that umps at the A’s bums game today collected a ball Bauer used to be tested in the lab for foreign substance etc.

    • djloo27 said, on April 8, 2021 at 4:25 am

      I can think of a simple way the ump can test it for Vaseline or KY jelly.
      Would save a trip to the lab…

    here’s some positivity. Go Giants! Cueto in to the 7th. We will be still at .500 after today:)
