A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Big Series

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 19, 2021

Scoring 2 runs in the last two games is probably not the momentum you need heading into a critical series against the stacked Art Dealers. Every time I look at our line up of hitters I shake my head and say “but how?” Almost all these guys are castoffs from other organizations. And yet we are 3rd in runs scored (NL) and first in home runs (NL). So I just accept that Z knows more than everyone else and I move on. But it’s hard to do when I go back and look at Ruf, Solano, Slater, Grave Duggar, Flores, Estrada, Wade, Sock Man, Dickerson….etc

How does this team ever score ANY runs with this hodge podge collection of rag tag scraps?

    Krukow ripping into the StMary’s boy for being a bad bunter, and should just swing away.He looked better on the bunt attempts over his pussy strike 3 swing..

    • xoot said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:16 pm

      well, Krukow didn’t explain it very well, but the guy tried to bunt UNDER a pitch he could’ve bunted if he’d been on top of it. Krukow just went ape shit after that.

    Fuck this ump. Miller was solid,

  3. djloo27 said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Gausman’s head is a million miles away.
    Get him the fuck out of there…

  4. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Art Rosenbaum was good as well.

  5. xoot said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Gausman is fucked up tonight. We’ve got a BP game on both sides, I think.

  6. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Gasman is channeling wails thing.

  7. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Wild

  8. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    I hope the pen is going

  9. James said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    Gausman is melting down …. 54 pitches

  10. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    Omg

  11. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    I had a heart attack on the floating splitter

  12. Macdog said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    A zero, amazingly. Yeah, Gausman ain’t long for this one.

  13. James said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    Christ, my in jest “prediction” nearly materialized.

  14. Flavor said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    on the bright side, he’s on pace for 18 K’s tonight.

  15. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    Yeah the timing from traveling to the A/S game, his wife complications, just overall rustiness and tons of pitches, is ketching up to Gausman.He needs a clean 3rd inning if he expects to last 5 tonight..

  16. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    We should be pounding this guy. He’s leaving shot up wvery AB.

  17. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Beatty was jerking himself in RF not to make the Dick ketch..

    • James said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:29 pm

      Beating off to the shift.

  18. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Ball 4 and ball 5. Nice job.

  19. James said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    I’ve been won over by Duggar, but that was a really stupid K.

  20. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    The continuing battle of GraveDuggar hitting breaking balls, curves, splits go on!There I said it, no heater, no contact..

  21. Macdog said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Dammit Duggar.

  22. zumiee said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    “My dad means the world to me…ooh! Cheese-steak!”

  23. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Fuckduggar not getting it done.

  24. zumiee said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    “My dad means the world to me…ooh! Curly fries!”

  26. James said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    This game seems like a capsule of the season, we’re winning but it just feels like a matter of time.

  27. djloo27 said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Feels like we’re down 5 runs…

    • James said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:38 pm

      You said it better.

  28. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Yep.

  29. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    So an oblique injury will be a mildly 9 month pregnancy to get done with is what Krukow is saying?

  30. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    McMinistry or whoever the fuck will hit a 2 run homer late to win it.

  31. mrsprtdude said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    Walked back to he computer to type “why in the world does anyone ever throw Duggar a fastball? I see others beat me to it:(

  32. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Wow. Even the clean innings are hard.

  33. Macdog said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    The most laborious 1-2-3 inning of the season.

  34. James said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    I wonder if Dirty Sanchez ever hit 80 pitches in 3 innings. It must be pretty hard to do.

  35. James said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    Except Gausman is our best pitcher and Gonsolin is a bullpen starter. This should have been a W after a 3-0 lead.

    • unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:07 pm

      Bingo. Krukow said that like it meant something

  36. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Oh boy. Yaz needs to make them pay sherfy coming in .

  37. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    That’s a big play on a wild pitch in the dirt for Tauchman to take an obvious 2nd base. Were really digging deep to find any highlights right now!
    Hey Here’s Jimmy Sherfy ex Giant time! Could bring some excitement maybe?

  38. chipower9 said, on July 19, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Our boys are killing me with the inability to get the key hit with RISP. Fuck…

  39. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Fuckfuckfyckfuck. How many can we leave on base?

  40. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Come on Robert’s stop begging, Barrels was hit,this games long enough as it is..

  41. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Aaaaaaaand yet another stranded runner.

  42. zumiee said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Duggar was just born in the wrong era. In today’s baseball he’s expected to pull the ball and swing for HRs.

    • James said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:28 pm

      He needs to lay off the slop out of the K zone. He’s still getting his walks and has just missed a couple of homers recently. His reclamation would likely not have happened in a different era or under the previous regime.

      • zumiee said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:31 pm

        They shift on him. He could be hitting to all fields, and using his speed more.

      • alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:35 pm

        Face it James every big league team has GD’s number now, no fastballs unless they are out of the zone, which he will still chase.They all know he can’t hit nasty curves,splits,sinkers etc.Hell they gave him a green light 3-0 and it was a fairly feeble swing..

      • James said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:36 pm

        The shift again . . . hitting to your pull side is where almost every hitter does the most “damage” despite the old school propaganda. The shift cuts into that a bit, but does not change that fundamental law. Duggar has learned to swing at strikes and hit for more power. That’s what counts.

      • James said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:40 pm

        Kat, I can’t believe I’m now the Grave Duggar’s champion!

  43. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Congrats to Jackie Robinson’s wife Rachel who turned 99 today!
    I will also turn 99 waiting for this game to ever end!!

    • djloo27 said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:39 pm

      Jackie is gone almost 50 years.
      I think she’s actually exceeded his accomplishments…

  44. zumiee said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Cool at’em ball from Bellinger.

  45. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Man, a run or 2 would be nice. The downfall of this new hitting style appears to be just putting the fucking ball in play.

    • zumiee said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:39 pm

      Baseball as it is today.

  46. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Hey! A hit! Been a month since I’ve seen one

  47. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    We set the table more than Julia Child.

  48. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Hey Spicoli time Mr.Hand
    And yeah dude it looks like another runner in scoring position! Bodacious!!

  49. Macdog said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Here we go again.

  50. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Oh joy.

  51. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Let me smoke another fatty Mr.Hand I just squashed another runner in scoring position it’s so righteous!!

  52. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Lose already. Ducking g sick of the 350 men we’ve left on base these last 3 games

  53. djloo27 said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Yaz has also been awful on off speed pitches this season.
    Now under .150 per LA announcers…

    • James said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:47 pm

      He was my random choice to compare to Duggar.

  54. chipower9 said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    17 left on base….🙄

  55. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Waiting for the dog bomb

  56. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Like this fucking No-name t reks

  57. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Seems the batters do well when they employ a little discipline, as discussed here a lot as a main reason for their success this year. Not this inning, nor maybe lately? 1st and 2nd, nobody out, and 4 pitches later the inning is over with no damage. Didn’t see it, just following, but Ruf probably should not have been swinging at the first pitch in that situation…..

  58. Macdog said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Wow, the third base ump is garbage.

  59. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:51 pm
  60. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Six strikes for t rex

  61. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Huh?

  62. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Aaaaand dp anyone?

  63. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    Oh yeah. Station to station.

  64. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    I guess that counts as a hit with a runner in scoring position even if it doesn’t score a fucking run.

  65. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    A run!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. Macdog said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    A sac fly! A sac fly!

  67. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Did everyone go to sleep?

  68. chipower9 said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Wow. We brought a runner home…

  69. chipower9 said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Fuck yeah!

  70. willedav said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    ha ha Vosler and Thairo get the job done, finally.

  71. Macdog said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Thairo!

  72. djloo27 said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Thair ya go!!!

  73. unca_chuck said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    O m g! ! ! Ponch to the rescue

  74. alleykat69 said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Vosler gets a slow doggie home!!
    Keep them doggies rolling rawhide!
    As Estrada brings home some extra killer runs!!

  75. chipower9 said, on July 19, 2021 at 10:09 pm
