It’s Raining W’s in SF

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 4, 2021

One reason I am excited about this year: The starting pitching, which I was comically wrong about, should be able to propel us through the Summer. And as long as we keep banking wins like we did last night we’re going to be in the race easily up until the trade deadline. And THAT is where Farhan will weave his web. Unencumbered by the contraints of future salaries he can just decide what we need and go get it. He’ll put whatever Russ and Curry are cooking to shame. It’s going to be like watching a modern day Rembrandt with his paints….

In addition to the legitimacy of the starting pitching it has now become impossible to ignore this *approach* the hitters take to every at bat. I don’t pretend to understand it but it has to do with either jumping on the first pitch they see in their zone OR grinding the bejezus out of the at bat. Whatever it is, Brandon Crawford likes doing it. Kap and his staff deserve huge props for this mindset they brought to our aged, bedraggled hitters.

    Good job by Dusty Hill after taking over for Billy Gibbons.

    ZZ Top brothers, that’s perfect.

    A couple of add-ons would be nice here…

    A day game tomorrow, the ZZ Top boys can wear their cheap sunglasses 🕶.Perfect walkup song for those 2..

    The crying over Matt Duffy is out of control.
    People forget Matt Moore was magnificent for 8 innings in game 4 of the 2016 NLDS before the bullpen threw it away in the 9th…

      He and Panik just completely defied everyone’s expectations by not being all that good.

    • alleykat69 said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:33 pm

      Yeah it was 5 years ago and Duffy hasn’t been healthy since.Get over it, hell his obese fat cat Skeeter was constantly getting the most pub over him in recent years..

    • xoot said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:38 pm

      The fat cat pretty much ended the cutesy era that peaked with panda horse and giraffe hats. Panik’s half a season in 14 made all the difference. 2B had been a black hole. Wouldn’t’ve made it without him. Good enough at the right time.

    Crawfish!

  9. alleykat69 said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Crawford says not on my watch are u getting a hit!
    He’s just been money all year in the field and at the plate.

    Dumb

    That was dumb.

  12. alleykat69 said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Sockless sucks! That was so freaking stupid!!!

  13. zumiee said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    What the heck?

  14. zumiee said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    McGee has Joe Strummer’s haircut.

  15. snarkk said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    I didn’t get that steal attempt with one out and guy on third.
    Apparently, Giants didn’t get it either…

  16. Macdog said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Grave Duggar in CF — where hits go to die.

  17. Lurker John said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    Yeah, that was a boneheaded steal attempt by Tauchman. Hopefully is was his decision and not called by Kapler. Infield in, one out, man on third. WTF.

    Duggar is mighty solid out there in CF.

  18. zumiee said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Fox game of the week tomorrow.

  19. snarkk said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    I’ll admit I’m surprised at Duggar’s success.
    The guy always had defensive skills, his bat was totally suspect at the MLB level until the past 6 weeks or so.
    I hope he keeps it up, and doesn’t get hurt, which he’s been good at doing.
    The Diver has been a disappointment. He looked really good right after coming over from the Yanks. Since then, good D, but no bueno at the bat…

  20. Lurker John said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Alright Rogers, don’t blow it. Throw strikes.

  21. alleykat69 said, on June 4, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Posey got beat up by Baez &McGee in that long AB..
    Little scuffling there in the Cubs dugout, gets that way when your opponent is kicking your ass.
    Doubt the Giants ever have that going on, cause Kapler could kick everybody’s butt..

    • Lurker John said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:01 pm

      Yeah, he took one of those right in the cherries. Ouch.

  22. Macdog said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Victory!

  23. djloo27 said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:00 pm

  24. Lurker John said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Yes! This is turning into a fun almost-summer!

  25. Lurker John said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    That’s as low-stress a 9th inning as you’ll see.

    • zumiee said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:03 pm

  26. alleykat69 said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Ballgame!! Giants taking care of business again!
    Same old Cubs,they might of come in hot but they’re being leaving ice cold ❄️

  27. snarkk said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    2 beatings on the Cubs.
    I think it’s official. The Giants are a good team. With a ton of front line guys hurt.
    The ZMan has proved himself. I always said just be patient and give him some time to dig out from the crap hole he was left, and he’d get the team back to respectability, at least, in a couple of years. Here we are. Props to him and his FO and on-field staff…

    • Lurker John said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:06 pm

      Yeah, it’s been cool to watch.

  28. Macdog said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Reggie Jackson had a big Game 6 for the Clippers tonight.

  29. Macdog said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Pads win again vs. Mets.

  30. Macdog said, on June 4, 2021 at 10:50 pm
