Lame Loss

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 4, 2021

Bumgarner beating us is irritating but it’s more irritating that a team with a .315 win percentage beat us. I actually liked to see a little fire out of Kap last night even if it didn’t totally make sense to me why he got so bent. He did say the “BS” word though. Oh my.

Big start for Gasman tonight. Estes was on KNBR yesterday saying this was all mechanical with his split and it’s an easy fix. Ok, well, let’s see it fixed tonight.

    “enough RBIs by career end in a few year to realistically have a HOF chance.”

    As a valued stat, the RBI has plummeted big-time. The new analytics people, including many of the younger sportswriters, think it’s basically a meaningless stat.

    VanMeter made the last out in the 7th.

      Remember that old billboard, “Calvin Coolidge was the 30th President”?….

        Alas, I do not. I had to Google that one.

        Sorry, John, that was just another “apropos of nothing” comment. I didn’t know the context of your post, but it suddenly just sounded like that billboard. Saw that as a kid on Rt. 206 in Somerville. Pretty interesting marketing technique by the billboard company…

        Ah, Route 206. We used to take that all the way up to Milford, Pa., to get to the Poconos.

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 4, 2021 at 10:20 pm

        Oh, yes, that took you further north. I think our route to the Poconos was 206 to 22 to 31 near Clinton and then up to 46 and up through the Water Gap. Past Hot Dog Johnnies. That place is still there. Good times.

    Nice to see some semblance of the old Gausman. With Disco getting a “refresher,” we need him back to his old self.

    Nice W! Bats finally came alive in the 7th.

    Mac/Flav – is the Flapalooza still on for the 14th?

    • Macdog said, on August 4, 2021 at 10:28 pm

      I should be good to go.

      • chipower9 said, on August 4, 2021 at 10:39 pm

        Very cool. Will be great to catch a game together. How long you out here and where’s your base?

      • Macdog said, on August 4, 2021 at 11:03 pm

        From 8/14 to 8/18, we’ll be staying in a Marriott at Union Square.
