Was It All Fake?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 8, 2021

As major league baseball prepares to crack down on pitchers who use foreign substances to increase their spin rate it makes one wonder how this will affect Giants pitchers. Guys like Gausman and Wood and even Disco came out of nowhere this year to dominate.

This week an ominous spin rate drop for both Cole and Bauer:

Keep an eye on our guys, too……

    Should be a hit.
    They would never have gotten the Grave Duggar…

    Crawford keeps up this bat and fielding S and he’s looking at MVP considerations…

    Before the Diver hit that grand salami, I was thinking that if he craps out on that AB, he might be DFA’d. What a save for him that AB was…

    what a game

    Was thinking the same thing.
    That AB was make or break for him – at least for now…

      I was about to say Shari Lewis and mutton chop could hit better then Sockman, he just proved me wrong with that 3 iron Grandslam..

        Kat, I haven’t thought of Shari Lewis and that LambChop sockpuppet in decades.
        What a blast from the past.
        I think she used to be on the Ed Sullivan show on Sun nights when I was a kid.
        Funny then, kind of spooky now…

    Lamonte Wade is sort of an AR 15 kind of player — sorry, I meant Swiss Army knife kind of player.

    • snarkk said, on June 8, 2021 at 8:42 pm

      You mean he’s going to be slapped around by the 9th Circuit?…

      • xoot said, on June 8, 2021 at 9:42 pm

        Probably. But the wrong panel is possible these days.

    Late to the game here, but a super lulz to Snarkk for his 6:10 “…and I’d rather get a blow job than a root canal…”

    How does it feel to be
    One of the beautiful people
    Now that you know who you are
    What do you want to be
    Baby you’re the Sock Man
    Baby you’re the Sock Man
    Baby you’re the Sock Man, too

    Pads behind 5-0.

    Anyone see the latest dumb Pirates play? 3B Ke’Bryan Hayes hit a HR vs. Dodgers . . . but didn’t touch first base, Dodgers challenged and won, no home run.

    1962 Met, Marv Throneberry missed 1st & 2nd on a triple…
