Losing With Less Than Your Best

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 28, 2021

I don’t care if some say (stupidly) that batting average doesn’t matter anymore. Hitting .111 is not acceptable. And when you lose by 1 run starting your Z-league catcher could easily be pointed to as the reason you lost. Shit I’d rather have 41 year old El Presidente out there at this point. In fact Kap left BOTH the team leaders in batting average out of the starting line up last night (Buster and The Grave Duggar).

As we patiently await the ominous foreshadowing of the aged POTD to coalesce, we seem to have staved off the worst of it with a bomb from one and a run scored from the other.

Still, Flap Nation turns its tired eyes to Buster Posey and wonder “will tonight be the night he plays again?”

    Without walks and errors , an easy win

  21. alleykat69 said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Pretty decent catch by Tauchman!
    I’m kidding that was Awesome to keep the game going..

  22. Macdog said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Great catch by Tauch, hope it doesn’t delay the inevitable.

  23. alleykat69 said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    The only good news is that we have Duggar at second base the Dodgers have Fat PooHoe at second ..

  24. unca_chuck said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    Not that it matters

  25. unca_chuck said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    We need 5.

  26. alleykat69 said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Wade jr the new Wally Pip.

  27. unca_chuck said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Wouldn’t Belt be Pipp?

    • alleykat69 said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:39 pm

      Yes you are right. I Pipped out for a moment..

  28. unca_chuck said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Longoooooooooo!

  29. zumiee said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Jansen gets roughed up.

  30. xoot said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Pujols at 2B for the bums bottom of the inning? Time for another great tag at the plate.

  31. unca_chuck said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Tep

  32. alleykat69 said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Longo another clutch hit!!

    Is that are former Giant draft pick Phil Spicoli Bickford coming in??

  33. Macdog said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Will this be enough?

  34. zumiee said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    The Dodgers could run a pitcher for Pujols. That’s always risky, though.

    • Macdog said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:55 pm

      There was no point pinch-running for Pujols once the Giants went up 3.

      • zumiee said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:58 pm

        Other than he could pull a hamstring or something.

  35. unca_chuck said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    You can pinch run a ghost runner?

    • zumiee said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:50 pm

      I think so. LaRussa got confused by that recently.

  36. xoot said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Pujols has one other double this year; I think he hit it last night.

    • James said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:17 pm

      If Crawford had picked it, the double he hit would have been a ground out to short on about a 160 foot toss from left field. Ridiculous.

  37. unca_chuck said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Adams has 2 home runs. Both against us.

  38. djloo27 said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:54 pm

  39. Macdog said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Yay! Nice Tauch catching the final out.

  40. chipower9 said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Fuck yes! Huge win. I so wanted is to beat those fuckers tonight!

  41. unca_chuck said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Why does Betts always look like he stepped in dogshit?

    Ballgame!!! Fina-fucking-ly!!

  42. alleykat69 said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Huge win to finally beat these assholes!!

  43. Lurker John said, on May 28, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Fucking Dodgers. Nice win with Tauchman making that clutch catch to bail out Dubon and Rogers. I’ll take it!

  44. zumiee said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    That was an adventure.

  45. James said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Dang, we picked the wrong night to go. I doubt that I’ve ever seen a bottom of the 9th, two out game tying home run followed by a catch to take away a game winning bomb. A perfectly cruel defeat for LA.

  46. djloo27 said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    We’re usually on the wrong end of these kinda games…

  47. alleykat69 said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Rodgers blows the save, Tauchman saves his ass with a brilliant catch, then the Giants win it and Rodgers gets the win.Baseball is so crazy at times

    • zumiee said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:20 pm

      He vultured the win, as they say.

  48. zumiee said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Giants roughed up both Treinen and Jansen, which is impressive.

    • James said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:26 pm

      Almost as impressive as the Dodgers scoring off Rogers.

      • xoot said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:29 pm

        lulz

  49. mrsprtdude said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Fuck Yah!! 1-4 is SOO much better the 0-5

  50. alleykat69 said, on May 28, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    So many heroes tonight,in the end one of the best of the year, especially since it was against the Dodgers!!

  51. Winder said, on May 29, 2021 at 8:04 am

    Wow. I can’t believe I missed one of the greatest comebacks we’ve had for a long time. I was so pissed after the 8th I just said fuck it.

    • Winder said, on May 29, 2021 at 8:07 am

      9th
