These Guys Want To Stay

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 5, 2021

GraveDuggar, Wade, Vosler…..who, exactly, is going to get sent down when we start getting some of our infirmed back? I guess it will be Vos but man I like that kid’s stroke.

Belmont Stakes day today! I know we’ve all been looking forward to this thread 🙂

I could obviously see Essential Quality win but there’s better value out there. I’m not running Rombauer back mostly because he’s facing a better field, the odds won’t be there and, I know this isn’t the most important thing but he’s so small and this race is SOOOOO long.

Anyway I couldn’t split hairs between Known Agenda and Hot Rod Charlie so I’m just going to use them both in my p4 and p3. Gun to my head and I only got to pick 1? Known Agenda. Good luck to you if you’re playing!

    Rogers showed some stuff

    Great job by Rogers, what’d he get, 7 outs?

    • xoot said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:25 pm

      He never looks the least bit perturbed. No matter what.

    • alleykat69 said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:26 pm

      Atleast MacDog, for what Dubon can sometimes offer, he’s still a devious goofball that can drive a lot of people nuts 🥜!!

  3. Bozo said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    That was one wacky win.

  4. Lurker John said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    Good win! These guys just keep on rolling!

  5. alleykat69 said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    The curse of the infield runs out just in the Nick of time!
    Giants win ugly, but they still win and can Sweep 🧹 the Cubs out of SF tomorrow 🧹🧹🧹🧹

    My god what a bunch of knuckle heads in the ninth. Ah well.

    I’m not sure Dubon should’ve run on the ball in the dirt. Fox’s cameras didn’t show enough of the play. Contreras is quick as a cat. But with Dubie who the fuck knows.

  7. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Kap just needs to leave Vosler in next time. Good grief.

  8. Flavor said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:25 pm

    just banking wins. This shit cannot be understated. Farhan gonna work some magic at the deadline, this is getting EXCITING

  9. Lurker John said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:25 pm

    Gausman dominant again and now at 7-0. That’s three straight comeback wins over the Cubbies, a team that always seems to give the Giants trouble.

    • alleykat69 said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:32 pm

      Dubon and the curse of the infield almost kept Gausman from getting that 7th win.Along with the 7-8 extra outs that Rodgers has to get.Cant say they can’t beat a team with an above .500 BS anymore.Like BF just said keep banking these wins and be buyers at the trade deadline for more pitching arms etc..

      • djloo27 said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:37 pm

        Well it may be early to think about the trade deadline, but do the Giants have anything to trade?

  10. Lurker John said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    One hell of a job by Rogers. He’s really changed my opinion of him with his work this year. He may not have dominant closer’s stuff, but he does seem to have the mental makeup of a closer. Not getting rattled is half the battle. A lot of guys would’ve folded up shop after Dubon’s contributions.

    37-21. WOW.

    Atlanta holds on to defeat the Dodgers.

    • Macdog said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:53 pm

      Finally.

      • zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 7:55 pm

        Kershaw takes the loss.

      • djloo27 said, on June 5, 2021 at 8:10 pm

        Major club hit…

  12. djloo27 said, on June 5, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    Why are so many regulars missing from here lately?
    These are high times for us…

  13. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    What Dubon needs to learn regarding baserunning is the risk/reward ratio. That play today was worth taking the risk in that situation. He wouldn’t have caught flack if thrown out. How do you teach that, though? A player has to become a student of the game on their own, too. Talking to the veterans. Absorb their knowledge, if they’ll share it.

    • xoot said, on June 5, 2021 at 9:42 pm

      well, not if Richardson was yelling at him to get back, for his own reasons. Fox did not show enough to be sure.

  14. djloo27 said, on June 5, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    I wonder if OSF is okay.
    He was real worried about COVID…

  15. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    Deadline trading ain’t what it used to be. Teams won’t trade real good prospects anymore. A Zack Wheeler or Brian Reynolds type of prospect doesn’t get traded anymore.

  16. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Regarding their real good prospects, all the teams now are:

  17. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    The Dodgers did give up a real good prospect for Betts, but the Dodgers’ system was unusually loaded.

  18. djloo27 said, on June 5, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    2-0 Mets over SD in the 5th on Lindor HR…

  19. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Calif. is now at 44% fully vaccinated for Covid-19. Massachusetts is at a very impressive 55%. There’s a few states over 50% now.

    • Flavor said, on June 6, 2021 at 7:14 am

      my zip code is 98% vaxed

  20. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    The Mets scraped together another run. Pillar was part of the rally.
    Lead is 3-0 now.

  21. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    “Kevin Gausman was nearly unhittable yet again, allowing just two hits — one a Patrick Wisdom home run after a Crawford error, making the two runs he surrendered unearned — while striking out 10, all swinging, all on splitters.
    More significantly, he said his hip “felt better” in this start, after it forced him early from his last outing in Los Angeles.
    He’ll have to manage it, and he says it does not affect his delivery.
    “It was always something that I would feel fielding a bunt or trying to get over to first quick and kind of aggravate it,” Gausman said over Zoom. “And then it would feel dull during the game.””

  22. alleykat69 said, on June 5, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Doesn’t hurt the Giants to have Degrom on the mound for NY, who K’d 11 and walked only one in 7 innings of shutout ball, leaving with a 3-0 lead.Now let’s just hope the Mets BP can hold them.

  23. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Pillar RBI single, 4-0.

  24. Macdog said, on June 5, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    A good day for the Giants gets better.

  25. zumiee said, on June 5, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    The Giants lead both the Padres and the Dodgers by 3 games in the loss column.
