Worse Than Just One

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 21, 2021

Just a devastating loss. If you think all losses are created equal, well, you and I look at things differently.

I don’t trust our late inning guys. No trust. Maybe you guys grew up in a happy home filled with puppy dogs and candy corn. Your parents stayed together. Trust comes easy to you.

Not Big Flavor. No trust.

This loss was the equivalent to the loss that Pujols bomb WOULD have delivered had Sock Man not saved the day (and the season). Let’s see if this one has any lasting effect. I bet it does….

    Giants taking Jansen to the woodshed.

    • willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:44 pm

      Salary of $20 million for Mr. Jansen. Just say NO to high priced closers.

  12. alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Ruf and ready!!
    For a double!!

  13. djloo27 said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Kotter’s figured out how to best use GD & Sock Man…

  14. Macdog said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Tauchman on 2nd for the first time this month?

    • willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:46 pm

      lulz. where am I?

  15. willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    RHs batting 1.000 off Jansen this inning.

    • willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:47 pm

      with a BB. gotta love it.

  16. alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Tauchman the true definition of a ghost runner..

  17. djloo27 said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Wish we had Bumgarner to PH for Wade here…

    • xoot said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:53 pm

      I happened to see MadBum work a walk in the DBacks game today. He didn’t pitch very well. Left a run behind in the 5th, I think.

  18. willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Jansen faced 5 RHs and got exactly none of them out.
    Single HR double BB BB. 2 runs allowed, responsible for 3 more.

  19. xoot said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    the bums’ fans hurling ugly insults at Jansen sure sound ugly.

  20. djloo27 said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Victor Gonzalez looks like a fat Wilmet…

  21. Macdog said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Come on Wade, there’s a first time for everything.

  22. djloo27 said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Need a wild pitch here…

  23. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Hit him

  24. alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    And unfortunately this isn’t one of them.Wade 0-27 against lefty’s.
    Lol Loo Gonzalez is a fat version of Wilmer!!

  25. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Wow!!!!!

  26. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    That’s fucking nutz.

  27. alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Great call Blue!!!

    • djloo27 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:00 pm

      Blue Balls!!!

      • alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:03 pm

        Roberts is boiling some Blue Bloods episode right now..

  28. Macdog said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    We’ll take it.

  29. xoot said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    i guess Muncy really is the bum to hate now

  30. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Someone hit a double. Vosler can
    Do it

  31. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    As good as that was it coulda been gooder. Mr Rogers better du king be in the neighborhood of the zone.

  32. snarkk said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    After the Wilmer HR, Giants used the aggressive Casali walk game to score the 4th run. They still couldn’t get a run in with a non-HR hit…

  33. willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Kap also gets 2 best defensive OFs, Duggar and Tauchman, out there for 9th too.

  34. alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Man we would all be ripping Bellinger if he was a Giant.
    He makes Tauchman almost bearable..

  38. Macdog said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    YES!

  39. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Yeah baby!!!! Fucking yas!!!!!! That really eases the pain of yesterday’s clusterfuck

    • willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:11 pm

      already forgotten. They’ve come into Latrine and increased lead over Dogs. And effed up their $20 mil closer in process.

  40. willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    rogers 1-2-3 inning and it’s over.

    • zumiee said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:09 pm

      • willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:16 pm

        thanks for tip Snarkk. I’ll have to find that Stan Getz version of “Misty”. He was one helluva tenor player.

  41. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Just a shade under 3 hours. A veritable sprint.

  42. xoot said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    this felt like a must-win game to me. buenas noches!

  43. Macdog said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Giants first team to 60 wins.

  44. alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Yeah Baby great comeback started by Mr.Professional Buster Posey followed up by Mr.Ed bomb a sweet win that guarantees a split and still the Lead no matter what…

  45. djloo27 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:11 pm

  46. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Wilmer. Part of the bore core lite.

  47. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Solano cueto and Yaz

  48. alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Another great sign by Zman.. Wilmer Flores has been one hell of a Giant!!

  49. snarkk said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Great comeback win, clutch, after a helluva bad loss last night.
    Rogers got back on the horse, good save, though I still don’t like him as closer.
    Posey supplied the spark in the 9th, that’s a clutch hit on a big stage by a great Giant.
    Wilmer picked a great time to crank one on Jansen.
    These Doghair/Giant games are always friggin’ blood pressure pumpers…

  50. willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    I think it’s Giants who are in Dodgers heads. Everyone expects SF to fade away and regress back to mean/back to 3rd place or whatever, and it ain’t happening.
    Muncy Smith Bellinger 0-10 tonight. Add 0-3 for Pujols.
    Giants pen after Webb left: 4 no hit no BB shutout innings.
    Jackson Littell Alvarez Rogers

  51. Macdog said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    A different view of Wilmer’s bomb:

    https://fb.watch/v/19_ShYo0B/

    • alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:36 pm

      A beautiful look! And career HR number 100, that’s one Wilmer will never forget!

    • djloo27 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:37 pm

      That’s awesome, Mac.
      Wilmet is so humble…

    • willedav said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:39 pm

      thx that was awesome. Love the old school HR trot, all bidness no dancing celebration bat drop nonsense. Act like you did it before.

  52. Winder said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    A truly great Giants/Dodger game.

  53. alleykat69 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Yeah it always seems like cardiac arrest between these 2 teams.
    I was close to getting the crash cart out with paddles set at 400 and yelling clear!!

    • snarkk said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:36 pm

      Yeah, if these two ended up in the NLCS somehow, that would be epic.
      I would need the defib paddles nearby, for sure…

  54. unca_chuck said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Man if we can take 3 of 4 that would be epic. Beuler is gonna be tough though.

  55. snarkk said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Telll ya what, on that RBI ball 4 to Casali in the 9th, MLB highlights show that call could have gone either way. Roberts apparently got tossed in the middle of the 9th for arguing that call…

  56. djloo27 said, on July 21, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    It’s harder to sleep tonight than last night…

  57. zumiee said, on July 21, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    “Bowden ultimately believes the Giants will add pitching, but not to their bullpen.
    “Zach Davies would be my prediction. I think he’s goes for a starting pitcher over another fourth outfielder. He’s got enough guys there. If you’re going to go for an outfielder, go big. Go Marte, Gallo or Haniger if you’re going to go outfielder, otherwise starting pitching.”
    Davies, 28, is a right-hander who turned some heads with the Padres last year, posting a 2.73 ERA in 12 starts. He’s fallen back to Earth this season, with a 4.35 ERA in a league-high 20 starts for the Cubs, but he could provide a durable and more reliable arm at the back of a rotation that currently looks a bit flimsy.”
    I wouldn’t say flimsy.

  58. mrsprtdude said, on July 21, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Yes!! What a win. What a fantastic job Kapler does keeping this team going. Every time they lose a gut check game (last night or opening day or other come from ahead loses) I think we are going to spiral down and out, and yet we never do. manager of the year for sure!

  59. mrsprtdude said, on July 21, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    PS Terrible call. Dodgers tv showed it. No way was that a ball. I loved it, but terrible call none the less…
