AZ to the Woodshed, Colorado Next

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 12, 2021

Now that we’ve sent those poor D-Back bastards on their way we get…Colorado for 4? Oh my, more banked wins. The only hiccup to this looks like an undecided pitcher for Saturday’s Flapalooza.

Everyone is saying Logan Webb is our best starting pitcher now. L-O-G-A-N W-E-B-B. We are 32 games over .500 and I bet 98% of casual baseball fans have no idea who Logan Webb is.

    Based on the last several starts for our starters, I would not argue the Webb as our best starter right now logic. And I agree Flav, can bet your ass most casual baseball fans outside of NorCal have not clue who the hell he is. Under the radar baby…keep flying low.

    Bring on the Rox.

    Bums won last night. We remain four up on them.

    Friars got blanked last night 7-0 by the Marlins. They are now eight back, but 4 1/2 up on Cincy for the second wild card spot.

    • denniszu said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:16 am

      Yeah…and somewhat worried about Gausman…barely made it out of the 5th. Hope Bailey can tweek some adjustments for him.
      Chris Russo argued yesterday that Giants starters can’t match up to the Bums and post season could be shortened. Others sternly disagreed.
      IMO, that deficiency might be offset by the firepower that this team can throw out from 1-8 and a bench others can’t match.

      • chipower9 said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:23 am

        It should be interesting any way you slice it. My concern is the starters and them wearing down by the time the post-season rolls around.

        But we have hung-tough with the best of them, and series wins over the bums, Stros, and Brewers are a recent testament of that…

        Just the fact that we are discussing our boys potential foray into the postseason is fucking amazing.

    Didn’t realize Burnes k’d 10 in a row yesterday.

  3. alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:08 am

    Logan Webb in his last 3 starts pitching 6 innings strong has given up just 4 runs in 18 innings and it wasn’t against scrubs, Dodgers,Astros,&Brewers
    The turnaround for Webb has been control, 24 walks in 79 innings compared to last year 24 walks in 54 innings.
    That’s 4 full games with his average of 6 innings not giving up a walk.His improvement and nasty stuff is playing well right now.He’s come along way since those, oh great it’s Webb and his freaking long innings of go take a piss, get a beer, make a snack and he’s still in a 40 pitch inning..

  4. Winder said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:08 am

    This season has make me feel almost like a kid again. For awhile baseball has been dim for me but not this year.

    • denniszu said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:19 am

      So true. The anticipation of dialing up a Giants game this year can be overwhelming.

  5. alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:30 am

    Chi..I actually think the Reds are going to catch the Friars for that W/C spot .They have a much weaker schedule going forward with I believe 10 games with the Pirates, games with 2 cleaning house teams,Cubs&Nats just around 25% teams with winning records.Padres much tougher schedule just playing the Giants&Dodgers a lot and with a much higher winning pct teams down the stretch.
    And expect them to lose Tatis Jr as well again , cause they have no clue what to do with him, now CF? I can see the 1st dive are slamming in the wall in the outfield and he will have to be shutdown permanently and get the surgery everyone knows he needs..

    • unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:19 am

      Yeah I saw they were working him out in the OF to avoid him diving. Huh? OFers don’t dive or crash into walls? Should be a perfect plan. For a week.

  6. unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:16 am

    We play the Pads a buttload coming down the stretch. We still have 10-12 with them I think.

  7. chipower9 said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:28 am

    Charlie – we have 10 left with the Friars. First see them again for a four game series here (Sept. 12-16), then there 21st-23rd, and finish the regular season with them at our yard (Oct. 1-3).

  8. Irish Kevin said, on August 12, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    Got to say the difference between 2010 team and this one is that pitching dominated in 2010 and guys were getting clutch hits in 2010. Where as the Giants don’t really have a dominating pitcher like Timmy, pitching and hitting seem to be doing quite well in 2021. The only other parallel is that once again no high paid sports analyst picked the Giants to do anything.

    • chipower9 said, on August 12, 2021 at 12:14 pm

      Uh, are you watching the Giants regularly, Kev? The Giants have got their fair share of “clutch hits” this year. Shit, in the last few series they rallied late for wins.

      And I disagree on the pitching. Gausman dominated prior to his last few starts. Giants have third best ERA in MLs, and lead the majors in WHIP and saves.

      They did not build the best record in baseball and land 33 games over .500 with smoke and mirrors. They hit, pitch and play solid D.

      • Irish Kevin said, on August 12, 2021 at 2:28 pm

        Chi, read my post again I said the pitching and hitting were doing quite well, and the only reason I called out the pitching is Timmy became a household name rather quickly. I think this team is very well balanced.

    • snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 3:06 pm

      Pitching definitely better on 2010 squad, hitting/scoring definitely better on this 2021 team…

  9. Macdog said, on August 12, 2021 at 1:20 pm

    Ian Kennedy gets out of bases loaded jam with 2 outs, thanks to blown strike 3 calls that resulted in two walks and Girardi’s ejection, and the Phils phinally beat the Bums. Chance to go up 5 tonight.

  10. alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 3:02 pm

    The hype train has arrived in Iowa for the Field of Dreams game. Approximately 8,000 fans will attend and the ticket prices range from $1,500 ( cornholed section?) to $ 4,500 are more ( premium corn stalk section?) The teams(NY&Whitesox’s)are both going back in time with back old school uni’s (Whitesox’s look the best imo) and of course Kevin Costner is there, probably to throw out the 1st pitch? Are Dad have catch? moment with the catcher in the movie?

    • snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 3:55 pm

      Less than 1/2 hour to game time at the Field of Dreams game. There are 5 tickets on StubHub. $1300 to $2000 each. Somebody’s going to come down on price quickly.
      I think the original prices were in the $350 range under the lottery that handed them out initially…

    xoot – do you have a current number for Stix? I tried the last one you shared with me and it is not in service.

  13. Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    i’m still not getting the 8K fans in this corn field game. What’s the point of a paltry 8k? This is a made for tv event. And the setting is so awesome, but they should have played this with no fans. That would have made it perfect.

  14. Winder said, on August 12, 2021 at 4:44 pm

    i think it would have been a better match if was the Sox and the Cardinals. A more down home feel.

    • snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 4:56 pm

      Chicago is the nearest big city, and the Yankees are the EZ answer to always drum up some interest. That’s my guess for the scheduling. Cubs v. Cards would have made sense, too, but Cubs probably would have lost too much money if one game not held at Wrigley…

  15. xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 4:59 pm

    Chi, I sent you an email with the number Stix used to call me earlier this week, but it occurs to me that others might want to talk to him, too. This was it:

    (763) 325-7541

    If that’s offline, maybe things have changed.

    • chipower9 said, on August 12, 2021 at 9:29 pm

      Thanks, Mike.

  16. xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:02 pm

    Lincecum wasn’t nearly as great in 2010 regular season as in 08 and 09. But he and Cain both stepped it up in the PS, beautifully, with raw rookie MadBum following. Sanchez? Well. . . . Zito? The 2010 pen, on paper and in memory, seems better, but it’s a new world out there today — three-batter rule, juiced ball, etc.

    2021 team doesn’t resemble the 2010 team to me. It also doesn’t resemble 97 or 03, either, though. 😉

    • James said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:34 pm

      Always got to come to Dirty’s defense . . . he was awesome against Atlanta and got screwed by a Fontenot error and shitty bullpen work by Ramirez and Casilla in the NLCS game he pitched. The only thing anyone remembers is Affeldt in the WS saving head case Jonathan . . . which, I guess I have to admit, is not to be unexpected and not even entirely unjustified . . . .

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:47 pm

        can we hope for something analogous from Cueto this year?

  17. Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:13 pm

    the fans aren’t even making noise they are pointless and distracting in this game just sitting there like idiots

    • unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:14 pm

      They thought it was a cattle auction.

    • snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:17 pm

      Thinking about the hundreds/ thousands they dropped on tickets to sit in a cornfield?
      Maybe there isn’t enough beer available…

      • alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:38 pm

        They should of just sent in truckloads and truckloads of Corn Beer only. Food only,corn dogs, corn 🌽 on a stick, corn bread, Cornish game hens, chicken corna bleu, popcorn 🍿, corn maize, corn chowder,corn chips,Walkup music all players have to listen to Korn..

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:47 pm

        bourbon

      • snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:51 pm

        Miller beer would be the choice; it has a lot of corn adjunct.
        Bud uses rice…

  18. unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:14 pm

    More like the ’62 team. Lots of hitters.

    • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:24 pm

      how old were you in 62?

  19. unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:25 pm

    Heh heh. 1. But I caught on early.

    • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:26 pm

      fair enough

    • unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:36 pm

      And I read a little

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:45 pm

        my son loves to wear his Marichal jersey to games and hear people ask who’s that?

      • unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:52 pm

        At a game no less.

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:57 pm

        oh, yes

  20. Macdog said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    Flyout to right, it’s a can of corn.

  21. snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:53 pm

    Yeah, that game is a PR stunt, but it’s still kinda cool.
    Too bad it’s cloudy.
    Judge smoked an oppo HR way out and into the RF cornfield.
    That ball might be worth something…

  22. Macdog said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    Too bad neither team has Alex Cobb.

  23. xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    In all seriousness, this really is a momentous night. Joe Buck gets to suck on both the Field of Dreams MLB game and on the Jeopardy guest-host spot at the same time. That’s magical.

    • Macdog said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:00 pm

      There’s no avoiding him.

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:13 pm

        lol. I’ve always thought that grammatically there should be a passive-aggressive voice.

  24. snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    I’d love for the Gyros, if they got into the WS, to play the ChiSox.
    So that they could kick LaRussa’s ass…

    • Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:59 pm

      i actually think the White Sox are winning it all this year so in some ways I’d like to see us play them but to lose, eh, that’s gonna suck

  25. alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    Fans getting into it some, the last HR was almost a standing corn of ovation applause..

  26. Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    Field of Dreams was a good movie. Honestly, the acting was pretty overdone at points but as you get older it’s really easy to appreciate how rad that movie was for baseball fans

    • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:14 pm

      badass movie if you like speeches. Give me Shakespeare or give me action.

      • Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:32 pm

        if you had issues with your dad, it’s timeless.

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:38 pm

        ok. maybe I should ask my sons

    • snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:28 pm

      A Comedy of Errors?

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:34 pm

        great speeches

    • unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 7:31 pm

      Yeah you can never accuse Costner of going easy on the melodrama. James earl jones was great in that. All the history they brought to light was cool. But like the Natural, they laid the schmaltz on with a trowel by the end. Liked the baseball aspect of bull durham but the groupie chick love story part was some gratuitous bullshit

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 7:51 pm

        I think Jones’s role in Sandlot was better in every way.

      • unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:09 pm

        I’ll give you that. That movie was hands down 10x better.

  27. Macdog said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    Mr. Heaney still pitching, this could be Green Acres.

    • snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:08 pm

      If they bring out Arnold Ziffel during the 7th inning stretch to nail some corn in a movable sty, it will be perfect…

  28. snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    MLB is obviously following the lead of the NHL with their outdoor hockey games in Feb, which are pretty cool. But, no matter it wasn’t their original idea. MLB actually has done a cool PR thing for the game, instead of the usual phuckup moves…

  29. Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:16 pm

    if you look at how stacked the White Sox are, they really should be the favorite to win it all.

  30. Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    talking about *torture* is stupid. The announcers are just trying to revive that old motto. That’s in the past, let it go. That’s Bee Wheezy territory.

  31. Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    i don’t remember playing catch with my dad. I probably did I played baseball from 8-18. We golfed a lot together that was our thing. I’d love to play catch with him before he dies though. Probably not going to happen

    • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:44 pm

      my son just texted me back: yeah, let’s play catch! we probably have ten or twelve throws left.

      • Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 6:51 pm

        you’re lucky you have that. Me and my dad are cool I just can’t remember “having a catch”. I think that’s why the end of that movie hit me so hard. Probably some other lingering stuff too

  32. alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 7:04 pm

    Say it ain’t So but Connor Joe from Kokomo is doing a real fine job for Colorado. Hitting .299 with 5 bombs and ops over .800! He also beat cancer last season,great for him, I’m pulling hard for him now., just not against the Giants..

  33. snarkk said, on August 12, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    Costner is the only actor I can think of that actually had the athletic chops to pull off a believable athlete. Bull Durham, For Love of the Game — he’s got a natural throwing motion. Tin Cup — he’s got a damn good golf swing, too. Didn’t hurt Renee Russo was in that flick.
    If you ever have 15 minutes to spare while enjoying an adult beverage or something, check out Costner on youtube when he spoke a eulogy at the funeral of Whitney Houston. Whether you like him or not as an actor, this speech, given the situation, was stunningly good, full of the right balance of anecdotes, remembrance and pathos. Beware of eye irritation…

  34. Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    all these empty seats goddamn. Hope we see it full Sat or I’m gonna be like “from now on we wait till the last possible second to buy tickets”.

  35. Flavor said, on August 12, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    what do these splash hits sell for? Why are those boat jockey’s out there doing this?

    • unca_chuck said, on August 12, 2021 at 7:18 pm

      All for the ball. They don’t sell for shot as far as I know

    Flavor&Unca Chuck so I have an incredible story about the splash hits. My neighbors daughter named Devin (San Carlos Gal)was in her blue/ pink/ white Kayak on Mother’s Day 5/9 and nabbed Padres Jake Croenworth’s 1st ever splash hit off of Johnny Cueto and he wants that ball for good reasons.I believe they have already set up a meet,the next time the Padres are at Oracle this year.She’s a good tough negotiator though,and she mentioned to her Dad&Mom tickets for sure, for the meet and it will happen, a signed bat, and ball, hell maybe go for a signed glove as well. Yeah she has the upper hand, and even being the enemy she will be fair..

    If you Google up Jake Croenworth(sp) splash hit Mother’s Day 5/9 it will show her in he Giants Jersey Glory, rockin the moment! Heard she was only the second gal to retrieve a ball from McCovey’s Cove as well, damm impressive!

    Damm trying to post this and the Giants go bonkers!
    7-0 wow!!

      • alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:41 pm

        Hey thanks for posting that cool moment Chuck!
        Yeah she’s just a do it all gal growing up, playing baseball little league/ Babe Ruth with the boys, she was that good.After all that and straight A’s in high school graduated from NYC with honors and still says u know what I want to get a pilots license in her early 20’s, and did that flying out of San Carlos Airport for kicks.
        Then moved on to a job at Boeing in Seattle( big pay 💰) but got bored with it (Kids today??) and now is back in the bay area ( Burlingame) working a big job at the airport, until something else she still wants to pursue..

        And nobody on the big club could give a shit.No spots to take so it will be another frustrating year, maybe a September callup but I don’t give a shit anymore, he’s obviously not in there plans at all anymore..

    Many of Costner’s films are undoubtedly over the top and bursting at the themes, so to speak, but I thought his baseball trilogy was an admirable venture. My favorite baseball film will always be the 1951 original Angels in the Outfield (what a stupid f-ing remake they made of that one)… no, I wasn’t yet alive when that was made, but I remember watching it as a young boy when WPIX 11 in NY aired it during a rained out Yanks game. Gave me goosebumps. I don’t ever want to rewatch it, as it could never live up to its place in my memory.

    Loo, by the way, I agree with your 4am post ending the last thread about MadBum.

  58. mrsprtdude said, on August 12, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    1st time i’ve thought of Field of Dreams seen since my dad died. Choked me up watching the scenes from the game just mow.. I got my love of baseball from my dad so it connected us until the end. We played catch some, but more memory of him throwing batting practice to us. You never realize at the time but he was 40 or so and threw 2 paint buckets full of balls, sometime 3, to my brother and I. 100+ pitches. My arm would fall off if i did that.

    Watching Giants MASH is fun too! LW jr crushed that ball.

      My dad knew baseball and thought I was the most natural 2B he’d ever seen.
      I opted to become a drug addict/alcoholic/degenerate gambler.
      So it goes, and who cares?

    Seeing you and Twinnie on the ball field would have been an epic occurrence. THAT would make a fucking movie.

    Sucks he’s not here for this season…

    • alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 9:25 pm

      Lol 😂 Yeah I miss the condescending Twin.He would be defending Tauchman to the end, that he should of never have been cut..

    • chipower9 said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:04 pm

      I miss his cantankerous ass, too. We (as we all have) got into some good tussles, but we also hit it off, too.

    • djloo27 said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:48 pm

      Flavor busts his ass here every day for us.
      I would bet that the memory of Twin is part of his (subconscious?) motivation.

    Another stellar evening of 6 inning pitching by Logan Webb!
    That’s 4 straight 6 in games for him, and after 2 early walks I’m thinking great the old Logan returns, but only the 2 and that’s it to also allow only 2 hits and punching out 8.He’s dealing strong right now.Throw in a killer 2 rbi base hit for icing on the cake!
    Call me crazy because I am, but he’s moving up to the 2nd spot in the rotation right now behind Gausman while Disco slides into the 3rd spot right now..

  63. djloo27 said, on August 12, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Doval’s name always reminds me of this guy who was one helluva pitcher…

  64. chipower9 said, on August 12, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Sitting here cranking some shit out on my part time job. Gail has the game on. Fucking Webb and then Wade. Wow!

    This team is BAD ASS!

    Fucking WordPress. Just noticed my earlier post didn’t post…

    Mac/Flapalooza gang – I decided to get a room for Saturday night (a two hour + drive at night just doesn’t appeal). Staying at the Marriott Union Square. I think that is where you’re hanging you hat. Not sure what time I’ll be in the City, but will reach out to you all when I am headed to the yard. Looking forward to it!

    • Macdog said, on August 12, 2021 at 9:28 pm

      Nice, now you can down a few at the game!

      • chipower9 said, on August 12, 2021 at 9:32 pm

        Exactly! Driving home after the game would just be too damned ugly.

      • djloo27 said, on August 12, 2021 at 9:36 pm

        I hope someone keeps (and posts) a scorecard…

      • chipower9 said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:02 pm

        Loo – I haven’t kept score in forever, but may give it a shot. If I do, I’ll send it to ya.

      • djloo27 said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:07 pm

        I don’t always do it, but it really keeps my head in the game.
        Sometimes the beer and the company take me out of it…

    Webb’s the man!
    Thank God he got his head out of that vise…

    Just another whipping of a bad team!
    Giants 5 games up on the Dogpile, life is good with this amazing team!!
    And how in the hell can anyone say that Lamont Wade would of ever been on this team and now has 15 bombs the same as Buster Posey!!
    Unbelievable!!

    • djloo27 said, on August 12, 2021 at 9:46 pm

      Wade is a revelation…

      While Field of Dreams got heaving on the sappiness, I did dig, as others have shared, the history and speeches.

      My dad played some company softball when I was a kid and I loved going to the games with him. He’d also take me to American Legion games. Much of what I learned of baseball, and my love of the game, came from my dad.

      My parents divorced when I was about 12 and my dad took a job in Singapore, and died of a heart attack a couple of years later. Hit me hard, and for that reason, the dad-son aspect of FoD gets to me, as much of my later little league years were without him.

      • djloo27 said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:22 pm

        There were times when my dad and I had nothing to talk about except John Cumberland.
        It was good enough…

    Another call from Stix tonight, from a bed in Clearwater County Memorial Hospital. Lyme disease and other issues laid him low, but calls to friends brought ambulances. He’s in great spirits right now. Friends are helping him make plans for winter housing.

    The number he called from is the one I posted above this afternoon. He says hello to all. Hopes to be back here asap.

    • djloo27 said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:19 pm

      If Stix was a ballplayer, his walk up song would be “I Shot The Sheriff”…

      • xoot said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:26 pm

        we argued briefly over Field of Dreams. He likes it. He saw the AL game on the tv in his room; he hated the fox production and offered some interesting opinions about the commercials.

    Who do you have to blow to get a fuckin’ POTD around here?

      POTD!

  75. alleykat69 said, on August 12, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    I’ll pass on the BJ Loo, maybe Stix needed to shoot the deputy as well?
