Wade Does It Again

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 22, 2021

I’m embarrassed I once used to refer to this stud as “Lame-onte”. Bombs like that are what make seasons like this one special. It still feels like LA is going to zoom past us. But with guys like Wade doing their thing it’s possible I won’t even notice or care when they do.

That home run was as important as the Tauchman catch vs LA.

    The horns are a nice touch.

    • zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:02 pm

      I like the horns.
      I know about him most from the song “That’s How I Got To Memphis.”
      Nice song.

    Watching a replay of the River Cats game….
    6’ 11” Jelle (pronounced “Jelly”) got roughed up in the first inning.

      Guess he got himself in a jam…

      • alleykat69 said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:21 pm

        Yeah like.. What did the one strawberry say to the other Strawberry 🍓??
        You have to be pretty fresh to get in this jam…

    The Brett Kavanaugh song.

    • zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:26 pm

      I get the sense Tom drank a few beers over the years.

      • zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:27 pm

        And Brett, too.

  4. zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:10 pm

    Davis hit a 2 RBI triple for Sac in the bottom of the first.

  5. zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    Some help from the Mets today. That was a pleasant surprise.

  6. djloo27 said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    I’m supposed to go Thursday night if it doesn’t fall through…

    • zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:36 pm

      Very cool!

    • Flavor said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:38 pm

      how could it fall thru, what could happen?

      • djloo27 said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:43 pm

        Plenty…

      • alleykat69 said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:51 pm

        Something called I’m Hurricane Henri the 8th I am,Henri the 8th I am I am.

      • djloo27 said, on August 22, 2021 at 7:00 pm

        Nah, it was just a lotta rain.
        The wind didn’t even muss my hair…

  7. zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    Estrada got an infield RBI single. I miss that dude.

  8. zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Jelle, 4 runs in 4 innings so far. A meh performance so far.

    • unca_chuck said, on August 22, 2021 at 7:20 pm

      He;s the 6’11” guy?

      • zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 7:57 pm

        Yes.
        He’s not a power pitcher, though. He pitches to contact. Yikes.

  9. djloo27 said, on August 22, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    You guys have no idea how much Rod Gilbert meant to Ranger fans.
    Not just a great player but an ambassador like McCovey.
    This one hurts…

    • zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 7:59 pm

      True, I’ve never heard of him. Sorry to hear he passed. Our sports heroes are important to us, I know that for sure.

      • djloo27 said, on August 22, 2021 at 8:04 pm

        Thank you, Zumiee…

    A Brebbia sighting in the Sac game.

    • willedav said, on August 22, 2021 at 8:10 pm

      Saw yesterday box that Kazmir and Shoemaker allowed 5 runs in 8 inning btw them for Sac. Kazmir let in 3 in first 4, then for last 4 Shoemaker blew 2 run lead before RC’s won game for him bottom 8. Blown save/vulture W.
      Bottom line, Giants do not have young pitching on its way up to ML level next year. And other ones are Brebbia aisle, or hurt like Beede, or Corry, or Tristan Beck whom they got from Braves in Melancon trade.

      • xoot said, on August 22, 2021 at 8:34 pm

        I watched part of the Sac game last night. Thairo and Dubie up the middle and Dubie made two spectacular plays. The announcer kept saying “that’s a big league play” and the colorless color man JT Snow said “yes it was, yes it was” — over and over. Vosler was in the OF, along with Heliot in RF (he hit a HR but misplayed a drive over his head). The bad camera angles and dumb announcing probably added to the pathos, but damn was it sad seeing those guys labor in the valley heat, hoping for a break. I guess Bart was sweating on the bench — didn’t hear his name. With all that talent, the River Cats are dead last in their division, far out of contention. How do those guys stay focused, ready to be called up?

        The Giants definitely got screwed by the new 28 man Sept. limit.

    Loo, I feel your pain about Gilbert. He was retired by the time I moved to Boston, when I saw the Rangers come in to play at the Garden for many years (Messier era), but as a teen I watched hockey a lot (mostly the Bullies of Broad Street since Philly TV was mostly what we got)… would turn off the sound, smoke a little weed, and put on some music… always respected the Rangers of y’ore. Gilbert… Ratelle… those guys seemed like artists on ice.

  12. zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    To me, it looks like Ramos has lost a little weight. Not quite as chunky.

    • zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 8:25 pm

      He promptly hits a 2-run single.

  13. zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Braden Bishop hits a towering 2-run HR to left field.

  14. zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    A Gott sighting.

  15. Macdog said, on August 22, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Sorry about Gilbert, Loo. I hope you didn’t see the Ch. 7 sports guy mispronounce his last name (he later apologized).

  16. zumiee said, on August 22, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Nice running catch by Estrada to end it. Sac defeated Tacoma 7-5 today.

  17. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 22, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Who’s the “color” announcer for the Giants? Lopez? Everytime I hear him, it reminds me of Chris Collingsworth, the accent, even the mannerisms. Odd.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on August 22, 2021 at 9:22 pm

      Cris Collinsworth. Geez, can’t even get the name right.

      • xoot said, on August 22, 2021 at 10:08 pm

        While speeding down the freeway waiting to hear a live traffic report on Bloomberg radio the other day, I heard a business of sports interview with Collinsworth, who bought a sort of football sabrmetrics firm back in the mid oughts and made a killing when the NY Giants used their analysis to beat the brady patriots in the super bowl. Now he’s a mogul two times over. shouldn’t that be some sort of conflict of interest?

  18. willedav said, on August 23, 2021 at 6:33 am

    Lopez was OK I thought. He’s just so low key and laconic. When Giants do something exciting, Miller and Kuiper are fired up and their voices rise to occasion. Lopez does not and sounds more like friendly grandparent than the others though they are a generation older.
