A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

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.

    We really need Gausman and Disco-dude to find their mojo again.

  2. chipower9 said, on August 4, 2021 at 7:02 am

    Well, if Gausman’s fix is so fucking easy, why in the hell has it not happened yet. And I don’t want to minimize the potential impact of his wife’s pregnancy/delivery. But we really need him to get right…now.

    Have to give AZ some credit. Sunday Dogs pounded them 13-0 and scored off every single one of 6 pitchers they used. Then SF got 7-1 lead, and instead of folding they knocked D/S out and tied game up. Last night they were just good enough, and Giants bad enough despite some unlucky loud contact, to end up 3-1.
    Kap should have Crawford/Posey back, plus LaStella and maybe Belt in a week according to baggs. LaStella also would take up spot on 40 man so roster move needed.
    It would behoove couple struggling CFs (with options as does Dickerson) to up their game a bit. The LH one is 4-22. Ramos last game in Sac he was 4-4 with 3 rbis. And Kapler did say Bryant can play that spot. hmmnn

  4. willedav said, on August 4, 2021 at 7:35 am

    zero angst over these 2 BC guys not playing either. Posey had slogged through 4 hour extra inning game night before as second of back to back; Casali freaking homered too. Real chance Estrada is one sent down today for LaStella, so Crawford (with only Solano as backup) gets day off to rest while Giants have 1 day off in next 2 weeks. Kapler is trying to win a pennant, not appease anyone in fanbase.

    • Flavor said, on August 4, 2021 at 7:51 am

      If you don’t think posey wanted to take hacks off bum or that bum didn’t want to pitch to him, you are missing something

      • willedav said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:50 am

        Do you know if Kapler asked them or not if they wanted to play? Baggs suggested he did or at least explained what his intentions are. Both were available to PH according to Flem. But if you have more inside intel on conversation inside clubhouse, pls enlighten rest of us.

      • Flavor said, on August 4, 2021 at 10:21 am

        If you played sports growing up one of the best parts was to play your friends. I am assuming it would be 100 X more important to guys like posey and bum. It’s human nature. I’m very surprised you don’t understand this concept.

    • snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:51 am

      Bochy would have played one of them, at least, guaranteed.
      Likely Posey.
      If Giants had to lose one of 4, might as well lose to MadBum.
      Hope it’s only one…

      • djloo27 said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:01 pm

        That’s a great point, Snarkk.
        Kotter has no emotional investment in Giant history…

  5. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:07 am

    I think it will be Aaron Sanchez sent back down right now, he won’t be needed after throwing 3 innings last night in his Houdini act of só só pitching.Jackson 3 straight bad games could be an option as well.If they really think Solano can backup Craw which I’m leery about then Estrada is another option I assume. Didn’t realize Dickerson has a option as well, but that Slam bought him more time..

    Kapler’s really looking bad on his challenges lately, that one last night involving Ruf was just a waste of time, you can tell the homeplate ump was pissed off having to get NY involved on a obvious no win challenge.Shit even Ruf never flinched are played it up that he got hit..

  6. chipower9 said, on August 4, 2021 at 10:26 am

    I read a piece last night where Kap was speaking to playing Posey and Craw against Bum. His main point was they have a plan for days off, etc., and he said he would address them playing or not with each, but that what he felt was best for the players and team would drive his decision. With this said, I assume those conversations were made. I do not see this as a big deal.

    • snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 10:58 am

      I don’t see this as a really big deal.
      And, Kapler has done a great job this year.
      But, it gives me pause about Kapler’s ability to see the forest for the trees, and get his head out of his scheduled ass in situations down the road that call for a common sense assessment of a really important situation. Go by the book no matter what, or go with a decision that seems to make more sense in the moment under the facts and circumstances presented?…

      • chipower9 said, on August 4, 2021 at 10:59 am

        I do not see whether or not Posey or Craw played or not against Bum as a big deal. People are making too much of this, IMO.

  7. Flavor said, on August 4, 2021 at 11:19 am

    I don’t think it’s a question of whether or not it was a big deal. The question was, would posey and craw want to face bum in the batters box (and vice versa). Personally I think that is a resounding yes for fairly obvious reasons. And Kap should have appreciated that

    • chipower9 said, on August 4, 2021 at 11:39 am

      I think they probably had a conversation and that all were good with the decision. We’ll probably never know.

  8. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 11:30 am

    For the 13th consecutive season Larry Baer has the Giants starting the 2022 season on the road.4 in SD and 3 in Milwaukee before facing the Marlins on April 8th.Screw Larry that’s a rough 7 game stretch.Will they ever start at home under his dumbshit thinking ever again?
    While the Dogpile at home against 2 patsy’s Rockies&D-Backs!

    • snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:07 pm

      What’s the reason for this?
      Weather? The weather has to be much worse in the rest of the country in late March/early April.
      There must be a marketing angle…

      • Macdog said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:16 pm

        They always seem to end the season at home, which will again be the case in ’22, so I think that has something to do with it. What the reasoning is for wanting to end at home I don’t know. I’m pretty sure Buster, and also Belt and Craw, have never experienced a season opener at home. Maybe they don’t care, but I would think just once they’d like to stay in the Bay Area after their couple games with the A’s to end the preseason instead of always hitting the road.

      • Bozo said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:27 pm

        Sorry Mac, I missed your reply before I posted mine.

    • Bozo said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:25 pm

      My guess would be starting on the road means they end the season at home. That gives them home field advantage if they are in the race and would also bring in mo money.

    • djloo27 said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:26 pm

      I never knew that teams had any say in their schedule outside of the availability of the stadium on a given date.
      Do they?

      • alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:36 pm

        Baer seems to have clout somehow,he always ask the scheduling far in advance to have them start on the road and finish at home and they certainly oblige for now 13 straight road starts..

      • blade3colorado said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:36 pm

        You can’t blame these 2 anymore . . . https://www.espn.com/mlb/news/story?id=1936328

      • Bozo said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:55 pm

        Blade the article was from 2004, so we shouldn’t have been blaming those two for some time now.

      • blade3colorado said, on August 4, 2021 at 1:15 pm

        John, I knew that. That’s why I said “anymore” . . . Nor can you blame the Sports Scheduling Group LLC of Butler, PA – which had the contract immediately following these two people. They were cut loose in 2017.

      • blade3colorado said, on August 4, 2021 at 1:16 pm

        Dunno who got the contract after that, but it’s BS that Baer has any input imo.

  9. Winder said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    I didn’t realize it’s been so long since a home opener to start the season. I think it would be nice for the fans if they had a few here and there. Not sure how ending the season at home really matters unless you are in a tight race. After a long season I imagine the players appreciate ending it at home.

  11. snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 12:58 pm

    The Giants schedule where they play the Pads 10X over the last 27 games is ridiculous…

  12. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    Casali gaffe last night wasn’t the first time that has happened.2018 Boston’s catcher Christian Vasquez ( sp)had it happen to him.Stopped a pitch with the ball rolling just behind him and he put his mask on the ball.Umpire immediately pointed for both baserunners to move up a base.Had that what did I do bewildered look at the ump..

    • snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 1:33 pm

      What is the rationale behind the rule? A mask is a legitimate piece of equipment.
      Can a fielder catch a pop up with his cap?

      • alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 2:00 pm

        A catchers mask is only used for protection not to gain an advantage it’s just common sense.It would be like an outfielder trying to stop a ball in the gap by throwing his glove at it, same with a cap it’s just a no no.Now u can pull a Kevin Mitchell and barehand a fly ball though, still one of my favorite plays of alltime..

      • xoot said, on August 4, 2021 at 2:05 pm

        It’s an automatic three bases for the batter and any runners “if a fielder deliberately touches a fair ball with his cap, mask or any part of his uniform detached from its proper place on his person.” Rule 7.05(b). I checked it out after last night. Don’t think I’d ever before heard of the automatic triple.

      • xoot said, on August 4, 2021 at 2:06 pm

        yeah, I think Kat’s right, too — a catch is defined so that only the glove or hands are involved. A foul tip that gets stuck in the catcher’s mask ain’t no third strike.

      • djloo27 said, on August 4, 2021 at 2:31 pm

        Well we all remember this…

      • xoot said, on August 4, 2021 at 2:38 pm

        yeah, I think that ball stuck in the glove play has happened a few times. Funny how that lands outside the rule.

        Casali’s fuck up last night on the dropped pitch isn’t unique either. Red sox catcher did it fairly recently, too.

      • xoot said, on August 4, 2021 at 2:49 pm

        I also skimmed past a prohibition on using equipment to interfere with the path of a foul ball that might roll fair. No mask throwing at a bunt down the line. I think it may be ok to kick a foul ball, though, to kill it.

  13. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 1:48 pm

    1-1 A’s/SD going to the bottom of the 3rd. HR for Jed Lowrie,and a RBI single for Adam Frazier who has an incredible 88% contact rate.Its no wonder why every team wanted him except Pittsburgh lol ..
    Another side note..Mark Cahana got hit by a pitch in the 1st number 19! already.
    Team record Don Baylor&Jason Kendall with 20.He should easily piñata his way past that mark..
    And I always thought a guy like Ron Hunt was a ball magnet, though I do remember Baylor getting drilled a lot ..

    Ok, I’ll bite. After the first homestand, the Giants go on a three-city 10-game road trip to Cleveland, New York and Washington. That’s in April. It’s probably safe to say there’s going to be a rainout or two during that trip.

    I’ll also throw this out there: Giants play at Minnesota Aug. 26-28, Fri-Sun.

  15. unca_chuck said, on August 4, 2021 at 3:18 pm

    The fuckig league, schedulers, or whoever the fuck does it, should make it alternating home and road. Simple.

  16. snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 3:37 pm

    OK, I never heard of that rule before re: prohibition on using a catcher’s mask, or a cap, to catch a ball or otherwise deal with one. Learn something new every day. I don’t like the rule. It stifles athletic creativity. If your glove somehow falls off as your run to catch a ball, seems perfectly OK to me to use your cap to try to catch the ball. It’s on your person, it’s not an illegal piece of equipment, it’s the opposite — a common piece of equipment, maybe the rules even require wearing one, I dunno. What if you catch a ball with your bare hands, but cradle the ball in against your uniform to catch it? Or you fall while catching with your bare hand and you press the ball against your cleats to catch it, or press the ball with your hands against your cap (on your head) to catch it, ala David Tyree’s “helmet catch” for the NY Giants in the Super Bowl some years ago. Aren’t those uses of equipment other than the glove..?

    • xoot said, on August 4, 2021 at 3:50 pm

      a baseball catch is secure possession of the ball in flight — with hand or glove. Athletic precision, I suppose. seems ok to me. t ballers often try to trap the ball. Almost as funny as seeing the entire team run after a grounder.

    • unca_chuck said, on August 4, 2021 at 4:05 pm

      You can’t take your shoes off and stop the ball with it. If your shoes are on your feet, you can trap it against your shoe.

        Menez did pitch pretty well, a bit of a surprise but was getting lit up to a tune of 6.75 at Sac.Maybe the Giants feel they have better arms down there are coming up thru the system they like better.They probably also think with his struggles teams will pass on him and he would be back.Don’t think that will be the case this time.He’s better then a useless Tauchman, who sadly returns..

    I think “freshening” Disco is a darn good idea. Maybe Gausman, too, with maybe a changed approach on how he uses and sequences his split finger pitch.
    The Doghairs were doing fake IL stints for starters a lot a few years ago, if I”m not “misremembering”; IDK if they still do.

      You right…

    a merman I should turn to be

  54. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    Giants no doubt would have the most DH candidates in all of baseball.
    But for my money it would be Barrels full time gig.
    He would turn into the modern day Edgar Martinez with 4 quality AB’s a night..

    • Flavor said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:15 pm

      uh,he doesn’t have 1/10th of his power

      • alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:25 pm

        Doesn’t matter he would hit for the same average, others can supply the power, he’s a doubles machine..

    • djloo27 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:24 pm

      Edgar is another joke HOFer…

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:52 pm

        Agree

    And now Gausman no longer pinches the bill of his cap before every pitch.

    • djloo27 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:40 pm

      2 great observations by you tonight, Xoot.
      You’d think our broadcasters might notice…

  56. unca_chuck said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Gasman hitting 96.

  57. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    Nothing wrong with Gausman’s mechanics tonight.62 pitches thru 5 .. 2 hits 7K’s he’s dealing gas, and some crazy stuff that’s filthy..

    • Flavor said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:27 pm

      hey, as I said, Estes said it was a simple fix

      • alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:32 pm

        Guess they never had a simple fix for Tauchman..

  58. xoot said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Buster more upright that AB

  59. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    Liked that Miller&Krukow both gave high marks in the 1st game of the series about Dale Murphy and how dominant a player he was in the 80’s.They both absolutely agree he should be in the HOF..

  60. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Apropos of nothing: Watching Yaz run, he sorts of lopes. It reminded me of someone, couldn’t place it, then I remembered Robin Yount. He always looked like he was loping. Like, anteloping… I always thought he should’ve switched names with Rob Deer…..

  61. Macdog said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Barrels clutch again!

  62. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Always count on GD to kill an inning off..

  63. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    Not a particularly good omen that the top 2 starters have tired arms. August is always a grind, and September is ramp it up time. I’d kind of hoped they’d pick up another good starter at the deadline. Hope they’ll be ok going down the stretch…

  64. djloo27 said, on August 4, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Grave Duggar:

    June 27:
    BA: .325
    OPS: .974

    Right now:
    BA: .270
    OPS: .790

  65. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Steal 2nd base it’s the backup catcher ferchrissakes..

  66. Macdog said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Wade starts a 2-out rally!

  67. snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Buster is hitting well this season, but he’s only got 35 RBIs in early August. At this rate, no way he’s going to have enough RBIs by career end in a few year to realistically have a HOF chance. But, the HOF is a joke now anyway, so what do I know?…

  68. snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Wow, the Dick stiffens again, for 3 runs this time !…

  69. Macdog said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Dick in a bandbox!

  70. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    A Dickcheesesteak special, just cheese and steak 🥩!!!

  71. unca_chuck said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Donnie coming back strong

  72. alleykat69 said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    What I really like about their manager Torvello he always lets his pitchers get hammered with nobody warming up..

  73. snarkk said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    7-1 lead.
    Hmmmm, sounds good, except that score seems weirdly and menacingly familiar…

  74. unca_chuck said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Wow. Jast realized I’m an inning behind

  75. unca_chuck said, on August 4, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Fun with bikasoer
