2010 Memories

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 10, 2021

Texas is in town. That is a little random. Hmmmm the last time I remember then was…..I think this?

They still have Joey Gallo getting on base and making James jizz harder than our starting pitching staff when Casali starts flicking those handsome fingers. They have a new guy named Adolis Garcia who rakes who the Cardinals just freaking sold them. Cold hard cash, no prospect in return. I wonder how Daniel feels about that?

Anyway, they can hit ok but their pitching is nothing to fear. They best SP is Gibby and he’s going tonight.

    “pom poms look way gayer…”
    I’m surprised I said that. I probably meant “lamer”. Even so, what we are allowed to say, even in jest, has changed dramatically in just 11 years.

    Have not been paying much attention since the Derby and now hearing of this Baffert scandal. What is the Flap Pony Take???

    • Flavor said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:44 am

      terrible for the sport. I am so sick of Baffert and I hope they NAIL his ass for this.

      • djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:01 am

        Betcha Bode did it…

    • willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:53 am

      His excuse sounds lame–neither he nor his trainers put the drug into the horse and they can’t understand how it got there. Blamed a previous fail on something in horse’s feed. Wonder how TVG crew following Preakness all week, who tend to fawn over him when he’s in California, will approach Medina Spirit.

    Great read in Athletic on Giants prospects and minors teams after first week. Thairo is raking, Bart and Ramos have couple bombs, pitching a little more suspect on first outings from Hjelle Corry and Beck though Santos doing OK with River Cats. High A guys raking but Low A not so much. And oh, Luciano 3-22 with bunch of Ks.
    Vosler got sent back down to clear spot for Cueto. Doesn’t seem likely to ever make an impact.

    Btw, spent yesterday afternoon enjoying outdoor BBQ at friend’s house, longtime Godfather fan who shows the movie (all 3) at Holiday gatherings, as ‘tradition.” Watched some youtube TV on Sammy the Bull Gravano former made guy from NYC in different families, telling stories from his favorite leather chair at home dressed nicely always with shades on and stylish old guy hat. Reminds viewers to give him likes and subscribe if they enjoy the content after each talk.

    Baffert’s dumb as is now blaming this on “cancel culture”. LOL goddamn motherfucker you got caught. There are conseqences for getting caught. Got nothing to do with “cancel culture”

    • djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:00 am

      You’re too young to remember the Dancer’s Image/Forward Pass Derby scandal of 1968,
      but back then when horse racing still mattered it was HUGE stuff.
      Worth googling if you have some time on your hooves…

      • willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 10:36 am

        Great story…read the SI report from soon after. What do you think, Loo? Could horse have been “got at” and received another dose to blow urine test by someone outside with malice?

  6. snarkk said, on May 10, 2021 at 10:03 am

    Which is dirtier — horse racing or pro cycling?
    I offer horse racing — because at least in the Tour de France, the athletes consent to using PEDs…

  7. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 11:03 am

    Nothing is impossible in horse racing…

    Sorry to hear today of passing of trombonist Curtis Fuller. Recorded often as leader, and was member of great sextet led by Art Blakey 1961-64. Blakey’s best lp ever might be Mosaic, recorded 1961 with Mr. Fuller, Freddie Hubbard Wayne Shorter and Jymie Merritt. Loved his big sound.

    • James said, on May 10, 2021 at 6:29 pm

      “Blues-ette” is a favorite go to LP.

      • willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:21 pm

        Oh thanks James. Looks like Bluesette #2 has extra cuts including Along Came Betty, great tune. And same personnel, with Benny Golson and Tommy Flanagan.

  10. willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    Noticed Lindsey Gottlieb, former head coach of Cal women who joined NBA Cavaliers as assistant, was just signed to coach USC women. Just a coincidence she left program once her All American Center Kristine Anigwe and her starting backcourt graduated and left? I get taking a chance to go NBA to further your career, but now she bails on them to go back to college. Cal women’s program hasn’t recovered, albeit in one of top leagues in country.

    I hate when coaches do shit like that –um I’m losing my best players/going off to greener pastures. Funny enough same thing happened to Cal men. Cuonzo Martin led the program for couple years and then once his best players Jabari Bird Jaelyn Brown (of Celts fame) and post Ivan Rabb were leaving, so did he to take job at Missouri to coach incoming freshman star Michael Porter Jr. His frosh point at Cal went with Martin to Tigers.

    Cal’s incoming coach Wyking Jones was not quite prepared, talent cupboard was bare, then his best player Justice Sueing left for Ohio State after a year, and Cal has been bottom feeder ever since.

    • snarkk said, on May 10, 2021 at 6:43 pm

      Good review, willieD.
      I’ll admit I haven’t been to a Cal sports event in a couple of years. I used to go to at least one Cal football game, maybe two, per season. And at least one Cal men’s basketball game, and one Cal girls baseketball game when my Snarkkettes were younger.
      Men’s basketball has been an afterthought the last half decade or so.
      Football has been somewhat on the upswing with Wilcox coming onto the HC job. He’ll probably leave in the next couple of years for greener pastures.
      I love Cal, and loved my time there.
      It is a world class university.
      It just so happens that intercollegiate athletics in the major men’s sports is not a huge priority, and we Cal people can live with that, and the occasional surprising success…

      • Winder said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:32 pm

        I used to enjoy watching Cal baseball also.

  11. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    Totally bogus stat they just put up about highest catcher BA’s.
    Without looking I know Torre played 3rd for the Cards in 1971.
    Maybe he filled in at catcher here or there, but I doubt very much…

    • djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:06 pm

      Torre didn’t catch one single fuckin’ game for the ’71 Cards!
      What a piss poor job by whoever put that up…

      • willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:23 pm

        Miller should know better too just reading it.

      • alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:23 pm

        Yeah that bullshit journalism! This person needs to be tar& feathered behind Woody Rueter’s man cave shed.,

    • Macdog said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:09 pm

      Or not at all: Torre played all this games at 3B in ’71.

  12. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    The Grave Duggar, leading off the inning should get something decent to hit.
    He needs to take advantage of this opportunity…

  13. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    That wasn’t one of them..
    And to tell the truth if he laid out on the pop up that went for a hit,he could of caught it.But maybe he didn’t want to blow out both shoulders again.,

  14. Macdog said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    Nick-Lowe first two Rangers batters this inning.

  15. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    Yaz grounds out to second,
    Krukow: “Good at bat”
    So fuckin’ stupid…

  16. Macdog said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:42 pm

    Belted to LF!

  17. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:42 pm

  18. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    Going with the pitch and it was Belted.

  19. Bozo said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:44 pm

    Belt says, I’ve got your no hit right here.

  20. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:49 pm

    Belt needs to keeep going with outside pitches. They may stop shifting him.

    • James said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:21 pm

      They don’t shift him in the OF.

  21. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    Time to shovel in a run or two…

  22. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    Dubon gets thrown out at 2nd on that play.

  23. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    I suppose that per Kruk was a good AB from Duggar.

  24. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    Shoveling shit for Duggar.

  25. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    Possible career ender…

    • willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:25 pm

      Sacramento is lovely this time of year.

  26. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    Dee Eff AAA

  27. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Don’t you have to have a career first?

  28. James said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    It was a very good pitch, FWIW.

  29. Bozo said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Yaz on, now bring him in.

  30. willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Tauchman since the HR is 5 for his last 26.

    • James said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:40 pm

      When Solano and La Stella return, things will get interesting. Maybe they’ll just trim the bullpen down to Rogers.

  31. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Pitchers best friend The DP ball!!
    Duggar knows all about that one ☝️

  32. Bozo said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    As they say here in the South, it weren’t purdy but it got her dun.

  33. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    They’ve had chances every inning. Time to cash in.

  34. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Awesome throw there.

    • Bozo said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:01 pm

      A thing of beauty.

  35. willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    wow wasn’t sure that was good idea to PH for Tauchman, but Kapler’s guy Dubon gets it done.

  36. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Doobie! Finally!!

  37. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Really great AB for Doobie!!

  38. Macdog said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Dubey!

  39. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    He had Dubon nailed between 3rd&SS if he just looked.But all good, take that bonus run!

    • James said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:10 pm

      Dubon stopped so he couldn’t be tagged out, forcing the throw to first. At least that’s what I saw.

  40. willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Kapler’s PHs this inning—walk to Slater, single by Ruf, rbi hit by Dubon. Batting 1.000

  41. willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Now comes the hard part.

  42. Macdog said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Culberson finally helps the Giants.

  43. zumiee said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    “Nick-Lowe first two Rangers batters this inning.”

    What’s so funny ‘bout…..

  44. zumiee said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    I saw Culberson play a game for the San Jose Giants when Posey and Craw were on that team, if I remember correctly.

    • willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:15 pm

      Modesto still have team in that Low A league? If so Jose Giants with Luciano etc. will be there. Heard they sold out Saturday night, cool even if it is small yard.

  45. willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Rogers makes 8th look easy.

  46. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    8 pitches. Do they bring himback?

  47. Bozo said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    No barrels there.

  48. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Geez 7 pitch inning for unstoppable Rogers!
    But guess who will get the call in the 9th? Kappy’s bromance boy Mr.McGoo book it!!

  49. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    warriors giving up a 23-7 run.

  50. willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    man, Texas defense…Davis throw from LF, error by Culbs, now SS prolongs inning.

  51. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    3 [point lead,5 seconds left. Foul.

  52. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    McGiggles?

  54. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Jeeebus. Don’t throw high fastballs to righties.

  55. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    What does he expect to happen leaving those pitches up like that?

  56. djloo27 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:33 pm

  57. Bozo said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    That’ll do it.

  58. chipower9 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Fuck yeah! Nice scrappy win!

    Doobie Doo with the key knock!

  59. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Yikes. Charlie to the rescue.

  60. Macdog said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    W for Wood!

  61. alleykat69 said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    McGoo only has one pitch the hittable FB!
    Man they luck out bringing McGee instead of letting Rodgers clean it up.
    Kapler says it’s still situations bringing in Rodgers over McGoo that’s BS!!

  62. willedav said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Giants sure killing it at home.

  63. unca_chuck said, on May 10, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    So glad the NFL has found a place for Tim Tebow to play.

  64. zumiee said, on May 10, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    The Bore Core has not been boring this season so far. That has been a pleasant surprise.
