Getting Chumped

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 2, 2021

Well that didn’t exactly work out as planned. Wood didn’t have it last night and we couldn’t hit one of the worst pitchers in the American League. Bad combo. Silver lining: the bullpen has only given up 1 run in the last 2 games. That is after giving up an average of a billion per game. So, progress.

Speaking of chumps, could it be time for all those who opposed the Grave Duggar to finally admit his worth? Or are you all too deeply buried under 6 feet of his wrath to comment?

I remember watching a twilight zone show when I was a kid that scared the shit out of me. To this day it still does. It was about this dude in prison who worked out a scam to escape by hiding in a coffin. He had a plan worked out with the grave digger to come dig him up after he got buried and he’d be free. Simple right? So the night of the plan, the prisoner climbs into a coffin that already has a dead guy in it. He was pretty grossed out but figured he could lie next to a corpse for a couple hours till his grave digger buddy came to his rescue…..you can see where this is going right? Prisoner can tell the coffin has been loaded on to the truck and then shortly after he can sense it’s being lowered into the ground and dirt poured on top. He is now literally buried alive……An hour goes by and he starts getting worried as the deal he had with the grave digger was that he would get dug up as soon as it was safe to do so. He decides to light a match inside the coffin just to see what the dead guy he’s laying next to looks like. The match shines a light on his face. To his horror, the body he was lying next to all along was…….his grave digger accomplice.

The episode ends with his blood curtling scream as the camera pans away from the the empty grave yard……

    Are you sure that was twilight zone, first mate? I remember exactly that story on tv but the escapee was a woman and the accomplice was an older black guy. I don’t think this was Twilight Zone, but I remember exactly the story and indeed it was freaky. Maybe the one I saw was a remake.

    • Flavor said, on June 2, 2021 at 6:53 am

      this would have been circa 1979 at Bill Reller’s cabin in Twain Harte. I’m not certain of anything anymore 37th mate but let’s see what Flap Nation brings to this convo, we have some crack historians here!

      • Pasalon said, on June 2, 2021 at 7:24 am

        Ah, the night at Bill Reller’s cabin. I remember it well. True brothers were born that night.

    • zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 7:08 am

      If not a Twilight Zone, Rod Serling also had a later show called Night Gallery where the episodes also had endings with a twist.

  2. chipower9 said, on June 2, 2021 at 6:59 am

    Yeah, what a shit-show last night. I tuned-out in the 4th when the halos scored their 107th run.

    RE: the Grave Duggar, to be honest, based on him last year, I didn’t think he would ever amount to much. But I have and will give him kudos again for the work he has put in on his swing, and how it has paid-off. It will be interesting to see how he does the rest of this year, and in next year, too. Does his numbers continue to trend where they are now (.324 and a .929 OPS), or more to career numbers (.248 and .670 OPS)? I am pulling for him. Hope he can maintain some semblance of his current success.

  3. zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 7:22 am

    Getting accidentally buried alive was a real issue in past history. On his death bed, George Washington repeatedly asked the doctor to make sure he was dead before they buried him.

    • Bozo said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:00 am

      They used to bury folks with a bell and keep some guy around the graveyard to listen and dig them up if he heard it. Maybe where they got the term, graveyard shift.

  4. Bozo said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:11 am

    Flav, I think you are talking about the Final Escape on the Alfred Hitchcock Hour.

    • djloo27 said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:13 am

      I have no clue, but I bet Bozo’s right.
      You can just tell…

  5. willedav said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:14 am

    GD is indeed rolling and had great month of May. Interesting on couple levels.
    first, he walks less and Ks at higher pct than almost everyone on team. His BA on balls in play is .475, .180 points over league average–luck has been good and unlikely to be sustainable. Bloop hits and IF dribblers are still line drives in the scorebook.
    However, he is hitting more line drives and fewer ground balls. That line single to LF last night was good AB and very well done. He is also hitting more up the middle and pulling ball less, toward open spaces.

    Duggar’s success also comes at a time when other OFs are going in opposite direction. His power rating ISO is almost equal to Yaz.While Slater does have good walk rate he also Ks quite a lot. Dickerson and Tauchman have plainly sucked. Dubon has as many bombs as Dickerson does, and Tauchman is one of worst hitters on entire team not named Casali, with OPS in low .600s.

    As much as some are struggling, SF is 3rd in runs scored in NL, 2nd in HRs, 6th OB and 3rd in Slugging. Sustainable, or not, we’ll see.

  6. Macdog said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:15 am

    I recently finished a drawn-out binge of TZ 30-minute episodes that I either hadn’t seen or couldn’t recall, which turned out to be a lot, and didn’t see the one Flav described. Season 4 was 1-hour episodes and I haven’t seen those, but a quick IMDB search doesn’t show a plot description like that either. As Zum said, my guess is Night Gallery?

  7. willedav said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:23 am

    MLBTR column on Giants injuries and roster moves according to Kerry Crowley last night. Casali isn’t major injury so Tromp just up for 10 days. Same for Longoria, “mild intercostal strain” whatever that means and not scheduled for IL. Day off today before 4 with surging Cubs, who play Pads again today after winning first 2 of 3 game set at Wrigley.

  8. Macdog said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:28 am

    Looks like Bozo got it. There’s a retro channel that shows TZ and Alfred Hitchcock Hour, I may have to keep a watch out for this one.

    • djloo27 said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:42 am

      Of course he did.
      I can always tell when someone knows what they’re talking about.
      Learned it while throwing my life away at bars and racetracks…

      • Bozo said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:26 am

        Man do I miss long afternoons hanging in bars. For years that was my main source, kinda like the internet and a library rolled into one, and in a place where you could easily forget everything you just heard.

  9. Flavor said, on June 2, 2021 at 8:51 am

    Bozo right again! Here’s the final scene on youtube. Not as scary as I remembered it as a kid

  10. Winder said, on June 2, 2021 at 9:22 am

    I just goes to show that any team in the league on a given day can hand us our asses.

  11. snarkk said, on June 2, 2021 at 9:26 am

    Every team is going to have a bad game stinker every once is a while, even good ones.
    I’d be more concerned if injuries came out of it, like Yaz’ thumb, which may impact him for a while…

      this is awesome. Bad for the sport now but getting this fuck nailed ONE TIME would make my day.

  13. willedav said, on June 2, 2021 at 10:07 am

    As far any giant doing well so far, let’s just remember it’s only June and there’s 4 months to go.
    Also, 7:40 yesterday post from Flavor:
    Might have to cross another name off the list of “Possible All Star game starter from SF Giants rotation.”

  14. zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:04 am

    “They used to bury folks with a bell”

    Yeah, then eventually they started embalming people, and it all became a moot point.

    • unca_chuck said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:19 am

      Well, they also got better at determining actual death as opposed to comas.

      My favorite Night Gallery was the earwig one. That, and the blind lady one. Star Trek Wrath of Khan stole the premise.

  15. zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:19 am

    One of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes is the very first one, called “Where is Everybody?”, starring Earl Holliman. A guy who can’t remember who he is or how he got there, stumbles into a town where apparently everybody in the town has just left. All of them. There’s still burning cigarettes in ashtrays. As he goes throughout the town, his confusion turns eventually into fear and panic, in a really good acting performance from Holliman. The twist at the end of the episode is OK, but not as good now as it probably was for audiences back then. The whole episode is filmed great. The directing and cinematography are excellent. From the get-go, the show established that the quality of the episodes would be high.

  16. alleykat69 said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:28 am

    It’s been one hell of a rough year for Yaz,stating out getting hit on his left hand in the last game of ST which slowed down his start at the start.Then he has to go on the IL with an oblique strain pull, now this right hand thumb strain which will set him back even more.Maybe Flavor can answer this being Lefthanded isn’t the right hand being on the bottom of the bat cause more torque and pressure in the swing over the left hand on top being the lead swing? Anyway I know Yaz is a gamer, but this injury looks like they should be cautious again and put him on the 10 day IL..

    • Flavor said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:45 am

      i am a switch hitter. When I tore ligaments in my left thumb I couldn’t swing right handed anymore till it healed but could swing lefty. So maybe that answers your question.

  17. zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:40 am

    One night Twilight Zone showed a short French film based on Ambrose Bierce’s short story “Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” What little dialog there was had been dubbed in English. Bierce wrote maybe the archetypal short story that has a twist at the end. At some point during my junior high or high school years, I was in a class where the teacher showed this film on an old reel to reel projector.

    • Macdog said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:51 am

      I just saw that one last week, had never seen it before.

    • zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:51 am

      Some of you may have seen this film in school, too. It starts off with a guy about to be hung for being a spy during the U.S. Civil War.

    • Winder said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:35 pm

      That was one of my favorite short stories when I was a teenager. Bierce was a newspaper journalist that wrote short stories.

      • zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:38 pm

        Yeah, it’s basically a perfect short story. A masterpiece.

      • alleykat69 said, on June 2, 2021 at 1:39 pm

        Yeah a great short film Winder, I really enjoyed it, nice pull..

    Stroman irked by ‘racist overtones’ after crack from Brenly:

    https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/31551690/new-york-mets-marcus-stroman-refers-racist-undertones-crack-analyst-bob-brenly

    • djloo27 said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:58 am

      I think he said “undertones” as opposed to “overtones”
      Which is worse?

      • James said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:09 pm

        The Undertones were far superior to The Overtones.

      • Macdog said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:20 pm

        I always take the over.

    • snarkk said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:13 pm

      I read the Brenly crack.
      Likely nobody has mistaken Brenly for Jon Miller.
      I don’t know Brenly’s intent in saying it, but whatever the intent, it would be an understatement to say the crack didn’t come off well…

      • zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:22 pm

        People on TV blow the “can’t be overstated” vs. “can’t be understated” usage choice a lot.

  19. Bozo said, on June 2, 2021 at 11:52 am

    I know it’s only June and many are happy that the pitching and vets are doing well so they can be traded in July, but man, I hope they keep producing and we are buyers at the deadline. This team has moments when they fall flat, but for most games they have been damn entertaining. Again, I know it’s early but it feels a bit like 2010 to me and I can’t help but think how much fun it would be to see these guys surprise the shit out of everyone.

    • snarkk said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:21 pm

      This team needs to improve the Pen by at least two arms. The 2010 Pen was nails after the acquisition of Lopez. Wilson and Romo appeared 70 and 68 times, respectively, in the regular season, to lead that Pen…

      • snarkk said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:23 pm

        Anybody remember what Sabes traded away to the Bucs to get Lopez?
        Joe Martinez and the (in)famous
        John Bowker…

      • djloo27 said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:24 pm

        And Ramon Ramirez who everyone forgets…

  20. James said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    Other than Gausman, all the starters’ ERAs near the mid-3s. Keep ’em there, and we’ll be one happy crew come September.

  21. xoot said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    Kazantzakis used that sort of final twist rather profoundly in The Last Temptation of Christ. Never saw Scorsese’s movie adaptation.

    • zumiee said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:24 pm

      The film underwhelmed.

  23. willedav said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    Didn’t realize Mike Marshall, the pitcher, died. amazing career. Didn’t he also have his own academy for pitching, with rather novel outside box philosophy?

    • snarkk said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:27 pm

      He also had a rubber arm, maybe due to his Ph.D. in kinesiology…

    • djloo27 said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:30 pm

      Bouton really liked him in Ball Four.
      I think he graduated Johns Hopkins with a 3.9 GPA.
      There was also an incident on the road where he was roughed up by a bunch of black kids and the police had trouble getting that fact out of him. I think he said that he didn’t think it should matter whether the kids were white or black. Well it does when you want a physical description of a criminal.

    • willedav said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:45 pm

      found site, Dr. Mike Marshall Pitching Coach Services
      quite interesting, and one entire series of vids on “How Kinesiology changed my life”

  24. willedav said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:29 pm

    @xoot–searching through some old LPs, found some other gems written by Don Covay. Chain of Fools by Aretha, and Three Time Loser and That Kind of Love by Wilson Pickett. Bonnie Raitt also did kick ass version of Three Time Loser, great tune.

    • xoot said, on June 2, 2021 at 1:14 pm

      He was apparently a giant of soul in his time. Thanks.

      Speaking of tricky old bw tv shows, I flipped onto a Route 66 episode few months back guest starring Ethyl Waters. Plot concerned gathering her old jazz band together one last time before she croaked. The two white heroes dove into the Black world to find the men. At one point, Coleman Hawkins answered questions shouted at him, while he played a solo, by nodding or shaking his head, shrugging, etc. Absurd, but not as absurd as the idyllic separate but equal Black life in the USA the episode portrayed. Circa 61. Hope the musicians got well paid.

  25. chipower9 said, on June 2, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    It is early, but this team is having success across the board:

    We are 15-8 at home. 19-13 on the road.

    And against teams that are >.500, we are 9-10. Bums are 15-17 against teams >.500 and Padres are 18-16 against teams >.500.

    Agree with snarkk that the pen needs to be addressed.

    And like Clown, I hope we are buyers at the deadline.

    There was an episode called “The Grave”in the Twilight Zone starring Lee Marvin and a cast of other known actors that was quite good.
    Some of my favorites were :
    The Monsters are due on Maple Street
    How a whole neighborhood turns on each other.
    Nick of Time
    William Shatner and his Newlywed waiting for their car to be fixed go into a diner and Shatner is possessed feeding pennies into a fortune teller with a Devil’s head attached to the top as it gives them fortune cookie messages about their future together.
    A Game of Pool..Jack Klugman a pool shark always wanting to be the best if only he wasn’t constantly compared to Fats Brown( Jonathan Winters) who viola Fats comes back from heaven to take him on..
    Other great episodes in no order cause there are so many great ones…
    Time enough to Last..Burgess Meredith
    Hitchhiker…Ingrid Stevens
    To Serve Man..Richard Kiel
    Walking Distance..Gig Young
    After Hours
    And when the sky was opened

        Rosanna Arquette and Linda Fiorentino spend the first half of AH either naked or nearly so as the poor main character begins his descent into some sort phantasmagorical 80s era Soho. It’s sort of a horror/comedy.

    Some Irish indie-pre-grunge alt-punk stuff. Hard to tell, but the lead singer is my friend from Seattle, Steve Mack. The rest of the band is from Northern Ireland/England.

    Some good football news

    NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports “all signs point” to the NFL keeping in place the shorter injured reserve and 16-man practice squads from last season again for 2021.
    Prior to 2020, teams were only allowed to designate two players to return from injured reserve, and those players had to spend a minimum of eight weeks on the I.R. list. With COVID last season, the NFL shortened I.R. to a minimum of three weeks and didn’t have a cap on the amount of players a team could activate throughout the year. It made perfect sense and worked so well that it will likely become the new normal. Practice squad rosters were also increased to 16 from 10 the year before. That will also stay in place.

    I once stood in line behind Linda Fiorentino at the check-out in the bedding section of a department store in Chicago. She was buying a quilt and 3 pillows.

        It’s actually filthy “mass”
        Fun fact: The guy watching her is young director, Martin Scorcese…

    Seems like quite a few of the recent Kentucky one and done guys are doing well in the nba. Julius Randle was terrific for KY. Noel got injured badly early in his year but to the point he was fun to watch too. Hope the knicks keep this series going.

    One of the first TZs I remember was the woman who undergoes plastic surgery after a terrible car accident. The build up is great as they finally reveal the beautiful woman under the gauze, who turns out to be the grotesque one as all the rest of the people look like alien road-kill on a stick.

    There was another one that I don’t remember anything about it other than the end when the protagonist wakes up from something and he has no mouth. Freaked me out for weeks.

    This dude was in the closing credits of every episode of Star Trek. Back in my younger years, I found it disturbing. Now it’s laughably un-scary.

    Applebee’s is using a 40 year old TV theme song in a commercial.

    A GMC truck commercial is using a 50 year old song.

    The Giants are leading the division by 2 games in the loss column. That’s cool.

    The Cubs are coming into this series with a lot of confidence and swagger. Hopefully the ballpark helps neutralize Cub hitters.

    National attention, even though I’m not able to read it…

    We need Irish Kevin to post it.

    We get to see our old buddy again.

    It’s not “national”; it’s a Brisbee article. Here’s a highlight:

    “This is where the narrative was born. Farhan Zaidi can find diamonds in the rough, and he can find emeralds in the bushes. He can give the Heimlich maneuver to a raccoon and come away with a topaz. This is his strength.”

    No help from the Cards tonight.

    A Panik sighting.
    “Vladimir Guerrero Jr. scored the winning run on Joe Panik’s sacrifice fly, capping a three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning that gave the Toronto Blue Jays a 6-5 victory over the skidding Miami Marlins on Wednesday night.”
