One Trade

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 27, 2021

With the deadline fast approach, if you were only able to swing one trade who would it be for? I went back and forth on this. I think we desperately need Craig Kimbrel but the haul it will take to get him would be high. I think we need a RH power bat to play first base and for me that’s either CJ Cron or Jonathan Schoop. Neither of them should cost too much, Schoop obviously more than Cron.

Knowing Zaidi’s penchant for the underwhelming, I think the most likely and best move he makes is for CJ Cron.

thoughts?

    how did that doughy fuck Muncy beat that out?

  2. Flavor said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    Sock Man’s best chance in that at bat was to just go up there without a bat and hope for the best

  3. unca_chuck said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Speaking of fucking overmatched, Whacksockman needs to go.

  4. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    It’s as if the Sock Man is allergic to contact…

  5. unca_chuck said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    About time!!!

  6. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    Another mystifying move by Kapler, when Webb’s pitching great,and you use the useless Crazy Socks to strike out again, like he would do anything against the lefty Urias..

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

      Don’t know how many pitches Webb was at, but he looked fine. They have to be looking at stretching him out some.

  7. Macdog said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Yeah Buster!

  8. unca_chuck said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Yessss!!! Buster poker.

  9. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    BUSTER!!!
    Nice job by Slater and Buster delivering key hits to tie it up!!

  10. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    Grooved the 3-2 to Ruf.
    They lucky it was only a single…

    • James said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:26 pm

      Singles may be aesthetically pleasing, but I was immediately bummed that it wasn’t hit into the stands.

      • djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:34 pm

        Me too – it was his pitch…

  11. willedav said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    wow Ruf knocks him out the box. Great AB.

  12. unca_chuck said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    Fuuuuuuck!!

  13. willedav said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Webb was at 80 through 6. Pitch count era, man.

    • alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:26 pm

      A joke if u ask me..

      • willedav said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:29 pm

        Gibson and Seaver rolling over in their graves. Seaver said his pitch count was 120.

  14. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Damm Wimet just tore the cover off the ball, freaking Bellinger making a play dammit..

  15. willedav said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    A’s got 5 hits and 3 runs top 3rd at Petco, but Tatis Jr. got HR #31 to cut lead to 3-2.

  16. James said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Looks like the calls for Kimbrel have the best chance tonight.

  17. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Bellinger is such a fuckin jerk off…

  18. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Yaz played that like his gramps played the Green Monster…

    • willedav said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:35 pm

      Exactly.

  19. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    You know the umpire was glad Bellinger struck out after he was showing him up.He was pissed it took him so long to get back in the box..

  20. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Another great Giants/Dodgers game!
    As the chants of Beat LA rocking thru the Park..

  21. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Roberts opening himself up for another 2nd guess here…

  22. Flavor said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    Fuck. I was preparing for some epic Grave Duggar postings

    • djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:57 pm

      Yeah, that hurt.
      Maybe he does Kenley in later…

  23. Flavor said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    why do the Giants have to wear these dumbass uniforms again? For how long?

    • James said, on July 27, 2021 at 8:59 pm

      Every Tuesday home game…

    • alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:00 pm

  26. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    What the fuck is there to think about?

  27. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Godamm cookie to Taylor from Rodgers, the previous bum swung at ball are they would be in the lead right now..

  28. Flavor said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Ruf. Goddamn, man throw decision there.

  29. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Yeah baby Ruf and Ready nice tag by Posey as well..

  30. zumiee said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Somehow gimmick-dude squirmed out of that one.

  31. Macdog said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Potential jam somehow cleared in Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood.

  32. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Geez Rodgers another escape like Steve” Hilts” McQueen as Cooler King in Great Escape..

  33. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Can’t believe they pitched to Muncy!

  34. unca_chuck said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Got to take the lead.

  35. mrsprtdude said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Time to rally!!

  36. Macdog said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:21 pm

  37. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. unca_chuck said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Wow. Shades of Orel Sax.

  39. James said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    He forgot he wasn’t playing CF.

  40. Bozo said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Wow, just wow.

  41. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    And Bellinger throws it so High , the Flemm call!
    And terrific-play by Yaz to force an issue and a screwup throw..

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

    Wade’s taking a beating as parents are ready to charge the field.

  43. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    What a game for Wade in front of mom and dad.
    I’d ban them from the park…

  44. zumiee said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    The screen kept the ball from going in the stands, and another run scoring. I guess the screen is treated like the backstop screen in the ground-rules.

    • xoot said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:29 pm

      yeah, see below. Exactly like the backstop — a throw or pitch off it, live; a foul, dead.

  45. xoot said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    would bellinger’s throw have gone into the stands, out of play, without the net? May have taken away a run.

    • zumiee said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:33 pm

      Seems like a flaw in the ground-rules, IMO.

      • xoot said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:36 pm

        one alternative would be something like arena ball rules, wouldn’t it? All live all the time? Or how would you improve the extended backstop approach?

      • djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:38 pm

        That’s a very real issue.
        This can’t be the first time it’s come up…

      • xoot said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:50 pm

        “If a thrown or pitched ball deflects from the net extension and returns to the field of play, that ball shall be dead, and any runners shall be entitled to advance one base, if, in the umpire’s discretion, that ball would have flown out of play and would have been dead but for the presence of the extended net.”

        Fuck no.

  46. Flavor said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    If mcGee can close this out i promise I will not say another negative thing about him this year

    • James said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:30 pm

      Hahaha, LOL!!!

    • chipower9 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

      Gonna hold ya to that shit, Flav.

  47. Flavor said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Wow. What a gift. This was HUGE

  48. Macdog said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    McGee closes it out! Beat L.A.!

  49. xoot said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    what a satisfying win. Webb was excellent. So was Buster.

    • James said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:39 pm

      Yes, against expectations, Webb is looking like the real deal. Let’s hope his shoulder holds out.

      • xoot said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

        I say the same thing about myself every morning when I windup to make coffee.

      lulz

  52. chipower9 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Fuck yeah! Ballgame!

    No negative comments on McGee rest of the year, Flav!

  53. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    No more negative waves by Flavor!!

    Gotta love it.

  55. djloo27 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Sarge saw a classic!

    • xoot said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:46 pm

      that’s right!

  56. alleykat69 said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Yeah Sarge sure did.Even Rodgers after being checked by ump leaving commented to the umpire:How about this crowd noise…

  57. mrsprtdude said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    YES!!! Great win. LA got lucky because the screens. That throw would have gone in to the stands, and the runner going to 3rd would have been awarded home right?

    • xoot said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:53 pm

      yes. this is a real issue. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  58. mrsprtdude said, on July 27, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Ok so I’m a little late on the screen thing:)

  59. zumiee said, on July 27, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    If I’m reading that rule correctly that Xoot posted, the ump DID rule the ball dead (in the stands, so to speak), and believed that 3rd base was as far as that runner should be granted?

    • zumiee said, on July 27, 2021 at 10:23 pm

      I guess he could say the runner hadn’t made it to second base yet, and third base is the extra base awarded.

  60. zumiee said, on July 27, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Someone on the worldwide internet Google-box said Muncy got in Bellinger’s way on the throw. I watched a replay. Muncy somewhat gets sort of in the way, but I think the throw still could have been made OK.

    • snarkk said, on July 27, 2021 at 10:50 pm

      I saw the same thing on MLB highlights a while ago, and thought the same thing. Muncy definitely causes Bellinger to funk up that throw; he ran about 10 feet in front of Belli after chasing back Yaz towards first. Thank Muncy for the winning run…

  61. unca_chuck said, on July 27, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    That does seem pretty fucked up about the screen. That would have reached the stands at Candlestick.

  62. snarkk said, on July 27, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    This team needs an OFer with pop. An everyday OFer, RHB.
    Get that, and you really round out this LU once Belt, Posey, Craw, and Longo are all back.
    Get Bryant, and you take care of that, plus a top level substitute for Longo, since he is dubious about coming back and staying back…
