New York State Of Mind

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 16, 2021

It’s New York everything tonight with the Mets and Mac Dog and his buddy all in the house. The Mets are a weird team. They seem like they should be better than they are. Maybe without deGrom they just don’t have that anchor they needed to get over this .500ish hump.

Or maybe this is just what the Mets always do?

I dunno, you east coasters would know better than me.

GasMan dominates tonight…..

    Awesome pics of the get-together! Loooks like a good time was had by all.

    They miss Wilmet…

    • Macdog said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:37 pm

      Giants baseball baby!

  3. Macdog said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:18 am

    Even though he wasn’t playing anywhere near his past years, they also miss Lindor.

    • Flavor said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:24 am

      Yeah what happened to him? He was terrible before he got hurt

      • Macdog said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:36 am

        I think it’s an oblique, I don’t know when he’s expected back.

  4. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:41 am

    Didn’t get off to a good start with Lindor with his teammate O’Neill getting into a heated exchange after a misplayed pop up, now the right oblique he’s been out with a month.Back soon but now they have Baez injured too I believe..

    • Flavor said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:50 am

      he’s only making 43 million this year, I’m sure they aren’t bummed about his underwhelming year

    Had a fun time last time. We went up to Sonoma and saw a concert, Chuck Prophet and the Mission Express, in Penngrove at the Twin Oaks Roadhouse, which they said has been around for 100 years. I’d never heard of the guy, but my buddy’s seen him a bunch of times. Very good show, 5-piece band, just straightforward rock ‘n roll. I would highly recommend him for you music guys. He even has a song called Willie Mays Is Up Af Bat! It was an outdoor patio-like setting, there was a food truck serving BBQ, and maybe a couple hundred people, mostly couples. And I could count on one hand the number of folks under 50. Cool way to spend the evening. Earlier we went to Point Reyes, nice little town, so I heard a good bit of the game on the radio. I guess Greenwald wasn’t doing the games this weekend.

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:10 am

      Greenwald is fingernails on a chalk board for me.

      Was good to hear Kuiper back to calling games this weekend. Greenwald and Randy Winn can get the fuck lost…

  6. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:05 am

    Sounds like a great show, Mac. And I love Point Reyes…one of my favorite spots on the coast.

  7. Macdog said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:07 am

    One more note from last night. We rented a car, which means we’d have to park in SF overnight. It’s $72 to park at the hotel, so we planned to draw the line at such thievery. At the concert, we met a guy and his wife who live up there but also have a place in SF. Eventually, he offered to let us park the car at his place, on Leavenworth just a block or two from the famous Lombard St. So he gave us the code to open his garage and we were good to go. Just an incredibly nice gesture from this couple.

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:11 am

      That’s cool. I was at the mercy of Marriott’s thievery and paid the $72.

  8. gianthead said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:30 am

    Let’s bury the Mets. They are nothing but mediocre without Degrom as proven by two other mediocre teams in Atlanta without much healthy starting pitching and sand Acuna and Osuna and a quite mediocre Phillies team both passing the Mets up in the standings. Good to catch up on your Flapfest without delivering the bacon as Blade and I failed in ’19 against the A’s.

  9. Flavor said, on August 16, 2021 at 11:32 am

    $72 TO PARK>!!>!>!>!>!!?!?!?!

    • Macdog said, on August 16, 2021 at 11:48 am

      Yeah, we asked the guy about parking on the street, and he eventually offered his garage. Just got back from picking it up.

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 12:04 pm

      Yeah, I am used to shelling-out $25-$30 to park for a game, but was shocked at how much they charged to park at the Marriott. I actually got off a little, as it is supposed to be $80 for oversized vehicles…and my Tundra certainly qualifies. That fucking thing is like navigating a damned aircraft carrier sometimes. I have a friend who lives in Milbrea, and will probably just stay with him next time I am down for a night game.

  10. Macdog said, on August 16, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    Hey, the cable car rides are free in August!

  11. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 3:50 pm

    1. Austin Slater (R) CF
    2. Kris Bryant (R) RF
    3. Buster Posey (R) C
    4. Darin Ruf (R) LF
    5. Evan Longoria (R) 3B
    6. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
    7. Wilmer Flores (R) 1B
    8. Donovan Solano (R) 2B
    9. Kevin Gausman (L) P

    • Macdog said, on August 16, 2021 at 4:00 pm

      Wilmer and Longo should be flipped.

  12. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 3:57 pm

    Mets coming all the way from the east coast after playing a Sunday night game late and getting swept by the Dogpile.I like the Giants easily with Gausman getting the job done over Hill.Let’s call it 5-2 with a HR from Bryant!

    • Winder said, on August 16, 2021 at 4:22 pm

      I never like it when a team comes in that just got swept. Look what Pittsburg did to us when they came here.

      • Flavor said, on August 16, 2021 at 4:35 pm

        i own timeshare on Nob Hill—Powell PLace. Parking is $25 a night.

      • unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 5:20 pm

        For residents?

      • unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 5:22 pm

        Nevermind. Never got the timeshare thing

      • Flavor said, on August 16, 2021 at 5:23 pm

        guests. I just looked it up and it now says $35 I guess it’s gone up. I haven’t stayed there since late 2019 because of Covid

  13. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    Wow. Long 1st for Gasman.

  14. xoot said, on August 16, 2021 at 7:16 pm

    Giants go up in the first with a plan; Slater and Bryant look at three sub-90 FB strikes. Buster deviates from the plan slightly but does nothing. Three wasted ABs. But I’m sure the AI justifies it.

  15. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    That’s a better inning, with most pitchers it’s the 1st inning if they struggle finding their rhythm..

  16. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    Rich Hill? Isn’t he like 107 years old?!

    • alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 7:35 pm

      Yeah his name should be Boot Hill..⚰️

  17. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    He owns the Giants iirc

  18. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 7:33 pm

    That 415 section is totally stupid, just made exclusively for the young idiotic Red Rhino rejects.
    They really need a 502 section for the real baseball fans and heavy drinkers!!

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:06 pm

      Now there’s an idea. How much is a Uber from SF to Placerville?

    • xoot said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:23 pm

      there is one, always has been, lower box down the LF side. The restroom lines are terrible but the drunks doing their best to stand in them don’t seem to notice.

  19. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    Ruf Ruf…

  20. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Hernandez agrees with me that Kotter is slow to get the pen going…

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:32 pm

      I agree with you too, Loo!

  21. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Gasman’s tank is on fumes.He’s leading off, his nights done.

  22. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    Adios Pelota! KB!

  23. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    What a fuckin laser!
    I don’t think it was ever 20 feet off the ground…

  24. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    There you go!

  25. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    3:57 called a Bryant homer! Bryant took him to the Castro District!!

    • djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:50 pm

      Way to go, Kat!

  26. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Starters going only 5 is a concern.

  27. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    We might be better off with Jermaine Jackson…

  28. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Or Jesse.

  29. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Tremendous work by Alvarez to keep the Giants in front..

    • djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:00 pm

      No doubt…

  30. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Send up Gillaspie!

  31. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:02 pm
  32. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Need that 3 run shot now.

  33. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    LaStella spit on that last one…

  34. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Família used to be a rock solid pitcher.But once Gamer Face Gillaspie took him yard in that playoff game, he has sucked and even the Mets fans say as much on their blogs..

  35. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Is there any pitcher in the game that comes in that Krukow doesn’t say he’s got great stuff?

  36. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    The Watson trade looms as a fantastic move.

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:32 pm

      I thought that was a great move!

  37. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Belted!!
    And now Back to Back by Bryant!!

  38. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Belt pinch hit dinger! He sucks!

    And Bryant! Holy fuck! Back-to-back!

  39. snarkk said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Giants muscling Up with Belt !
    And Up again, with KB ! …

  40. zumiee said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Pitchers get away with flopping a curve in to steal strike one a lot of times, but Bryant was having none of that.

  41. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Met announcers trying make sense out of Oracle suddenly being homer friendly…

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:35 pm

      Good luck with that shit…😂

  42. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Signing Bryant has to be the number one priority…

  43. snarkk said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Craw is En Fuego — 4 / 4 tonight !
    That should put him over .300 if he’s not already.
    He absolutely crushed that triple…

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:38 pm

      He was already over .300. .302 before that AB….I want I believe that’s what they said earlier….

    • alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:41 pm

      Up to .306 for the MVP man that gets no respect..

  44. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Bang bang bitches…Giants have the hittin’ shoes on tonight!

  45. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    My daughter picked a good game to go to.

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:38 pm

      Hell yes she did!

  46. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    4-4 Crawford he is so dialed in.Ringing triple off the bricks 🧱 to score Longo!!

  47. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Met announcers say that this was the only SF Giant team to lead the NL in home runs.
    Still not sure I believe it…

  48. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Uh oh….something is amiss in Mr Roger’s neighborhood..

  49. zumiee said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Gimmick-dude gets a bit roughed up every once in a while.

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:05 pm

      So, if you have pitched in 57 games and own a 2.05 ERA/1.05 WHIP, is it a gimmick? If so, pretty damned good gimmick.

  50. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Reds are now just 1 1/2 games behind the sliding Padres…

  51. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Mc Goofball trying to save it for ,yes Gasman..
    Let’s close these bitches out!!

  52. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Asshole alert…

  53. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    That moron fan is lucky Cousin Flavor didn’t lay him out…

    • chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:05 pm

      lqtm…

  54. alleykat69 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Maybe we will put on hold the 502 section…

  55. unca_chuck said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    There she is, making me proud!

  56. chipower9 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Titties gets the save!

  57. Winder said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Good win.

      Like I said earlier, signing KB has to be the priority.

  62. mrsprtdude said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Great win!
    Question. What’s up with Dodgers scouting? Sign D Duffy and a day or two later he is on 60 day DL. Sign Cole Hamels and now 2 days later. 60 day DL. Weird

  63. djloo27 said, on August 16, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Chi’s 9:34 about signing Bryant is:
