It’s Falling Apart

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 5, 2021

This is the headline at ESPN today.

hmmmmmm I dunno, how bout the team that doesn’t have to trot out openers in back to back games? Jeez where is our savior LOG DOG when you need him?

Sadly, Log Dog can’t pitch every game. And he can’t hit at all which is something none of our paid hitters seem to know how to do anymore.

    2 bunt singles wholly cow what’s got in to them?
    Now Casali getting into the act wtf?

  2. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    Giants had the dreaded 2nd and 3rd with no out.

  3. Macdog said, on September 5, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    Sigh, revert to form in that inning.

  4. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    Have to add on there and it felt like a subtraction.

  5. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    If Muncy slumped the last month of the season, that would be helpful.

  6. Bozo said, on September 5, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Elementary my dear Watson.

  7. Bozo said, on September 5, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    He took the ball away from the fan?

    • Bozo said, on September 5, 2021 at 6:50 pm

      Did I see Taylor just do that?

      • alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:09 pm

        I think it might have been wedged in that stupid netting down the line Bozo..

      • Bozo said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:17 pm

        Good call, Kat. I forgot about that net.

  8. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    Stud play by Bryant right there WOW 🤩

  9. Macdog said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    Get those bums outta Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood.

  10. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    Then again those gay ass blue pajamas there wearing might get Mr.Rodgers excited…

    • xoot said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:22 pm

      The gay ass photos of Kap et al arriving at the park today included one of Bryant in gay ass skinny jeans. lulz

  11. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:20 pm

    Goddamitt McGoo!!!!

    • Macdog said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:22 pm

      Goddamn Bryant too.

  12. Bozo said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:20 pm

    Pujols got all of that one, come on McGee close this fucker out.

  13. xoot said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    K Bryant and T Turner are somewhat comparable.

  14. mrsprtdude said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Great to see the park again last night. Game last night sucked and was made worse by SOOO many Dodger fans being there. Lets get this done!

  15. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Whatever that pitch was to Pujols, it was 91 MPH.

  16. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:27 pm

    The crappy ump gave us one!

    • zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:27 pm

      He owed us.

  17. Bozo said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    YES!

  18. Macdog said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    YES!!!

  19. Flavor said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:31 pm

    Thank God

    this team is astonishing. this season is astonishing. this stretch run will be one to remember. Jose Quintana, our fanbase turns its frantic eyes to you, and you come through. Unbelievable.

  22. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:32 pm

    Back to 1st place!!
    All is good Fuck LA!!
    Eat Shit on your flight home
    Hey there’s the netting scenario again Bozo this time it worked!!

  23. Winder said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    That was a good game. Amazing.

    • zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:34 pm

      • Flavor said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:54 pm

        i saw a post the other day, I think it was 2014, and you were posting clint. How many years have you been doing this? Have you misses a win???

      • zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:59 pm

        I can’t remember when I started doing it. I have missed a few wins over the years.

      • zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:01 pm

        The “knowing dude head nod” concept came from you.

      • xoot said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:17 pm

        the knowing dude head nod was a tedspe original. he passed another guy wearing a Giants hat and they exchanged that and he posted about it on this blog.

  24. Macdog said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    Series win, 2-1. Season series win, 10-9. First place. Absolutely amazing and astounding. Even this late in the season, these guys keep surprising me.

  25. Macdog said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:36 pm

    I would be one obnoxious prick to all those Dodgers fans if I was there, haha.

    • alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:40 pm

      I sure was Friday night and my daughter was worse ..

    Get ‘em tomorrow? If we beat buehler with the brebbia aisle brigade, I’ll eat a bag of hangers.

    Unca, I know it’s hard to believe a clown who can plead diminished capacity, but if I tell you it’s going to rain, you better bring an umbrella. May I suggest hanger steaks?

    • unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:19 pm

      Fuck off, clown!!!

      • Bozo said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:41 pm

        Like beating Buehler, cook em rare. Cheers.

      • unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:54 pm

        Hah!!! I really did have hanger steak tonight!

  27. gianthead said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    That became stressful. Huge win.

  28. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    For sure MacDog this team has great mojo going , with chemistry in matched!!

  29. gianthead said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    Quintana surprise performance but shows having a vet who can stay calm with shitty ump pitch calls. Cant believe we got a gimme on the Betts strikeout. Gold star to Doval as well!!! Big team win.

  30. mrsprtdude said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    HUGE WIN!!!

  31. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:53 pm

    Hit of the game, Duggar’s 3-bagger. Loved the intensity on his face and his “let’s go” admonishment to the dugout. A much needed spark.

  32. alleykat69 said, on September 5, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    Taking the season series 10-9 is HUGE!!
    If they ended up tied at the end of the season game 163 for the division title would be in San Francisco….

  33. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    And fitting that it would be a grave duggar to help bring the offense back to life…

  34. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    I remember how Ted used to write:
    “Goodnight, gentlemen (question mark)”

    He wrote out “question mark” instead of using a question mark.

    • xoot said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:31 pm

      good for you

    • Bozo said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:38 pm

      Tedspe was funny as hell, miss that guy.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:47 pm

      He;s still out there in Facebook land.

    • willedav said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:20 pm

      Really funny guy. He was at Flap #2 First and Main iirc Snarkk Blade Wisco Flavor… good group.

  35. unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    Unreal game. Funny thing, I’m in a restaurant in Big Sky, Montana watching the last 3 innings on my daughter’s phone, eating, no lie, hanger steak.

    • zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:45 pm

      You kept your word!

    • snarkk said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:09 pm

      Had a hanger steak last evening in Danville eating out. Highly underrated steak. Liked it so much I picked 2 up at Lunardi’s meat counter, had the butcher trim ’em for me, and took home…

  36. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    The Padres have momentarily moved back into the second Wild Card spot.

  37. unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    The Pads are actually starting to play good ball these days.

  38. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Speaking of Facebook, or social media in general, some people out there have started something they’re calling the Herm Cain Awards. They gather anti-vax social media posts of people who later died of Covid-19, and make a time-line narrative out of it.
    There’s a similar progression to the deaths of these people.
    1. They post a bunch of anti-vax and anti-mask memes, and ridicule the virus.
    2. They catch Covid and post messages about how they’re not worried about it.
    3. They get very sick, and sound very worried.
    4. Somebody else posts that the person has died, and often includes a GoFundMe link to help the person’s family.

    • zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:11 pm

      I went to the site for a little bit, and I think the main thing I took from it was seeing documented what memes the anti-vaxxers are sharing with each other on social media. They are way crazier and more bizarre than I would even have guessed.

    • snarkk said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:12 pm

      I have no empathy for these people. Not anymore, none.
      Because they don’t give a S about me and mine, nor you and yours.
      Plus, their idiocy and misinformation and/or outright lies spread on the airwaves or online no doubt has caused others to get the Covid and die…

      • unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:23 pm

        Fuck the vaccine, I’ll take sheep de-wormer.

  39. xoot said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    these people are ignorant and malevolent, but they’re people. They deserve compassion and care. Our own ignorances and malevolences menace, too.

    • snarkk said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:28 pm

      Not being smug.
      Being straight up.
      An idiot who didn’t wear a mask killed my wife’s mother..
      The no vaxxers get it, then demand treatment, taking ICU beds and hospital services from cancer and stroke and other patients.
      Fuck them all…

      • xoot said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:34 pm

        Uncle of mine, in his 80s, retired in a nice Tenn suburb. Got vaxed asap. His next door neighbor, an elderly African American guy, like my uncle a retired, well-educated biz exec, still hasn’t taken the jab. Try to understand that man’s fear.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:39 pm

      Shit, at some point you have to cut bait. I’m sorry, but ignorance and stupidity runs so deep that you can’t do anything to help these folks so blind to reality. Gohmert, Abbott,Trump, Green, Pence, and all the cast of clowns on the right have been vaccinated and STILL disavow it to garner support.

      Don’t wear a mask, but sure, get the monoclonal antibody treatment like Abbott did. Like Trump said, it’ll be available to everyone (in government. shhhhhh). The one not available to anyone but the elite that costs thousands. That mask? $1.99. Fuck that. They are killing their base. Should I feel bad for them? Sure, but should all these moitherfuckers in the government be held to account? Of course not. The people the ignorant masses are listening to are the agents of their demise. How do you break that grip?

      It’s really fiucking hard to garner sympathy for people being so far removed from reality that they believe the shit spewed out by their local representatives. If I talked to ANY of these people,they would shout me down and stomp my ass for the usual socialist elitist garbage fed by the right. You know, the elites.

      Sorry for the political rant, but this shit makes me furious. The longer people don;t get vaccinated, the more time the virus has to mutate.

      • unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 11:05 pm

        And by cut bait I’m referring to the crackers. Distrust of the medical system by minorities and the disenfranchised is a real struggle.

  40. snarkk said, on September 5, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    BTW, great series win by the Gyros!
    McGoo continues to be a serious issue…

    • chipower9 said, on September 5, 2021 at 10:23 pm

      He scares the fuck out of me, but he gets the results more often than not (29 saves out of 34 chances).

  41. chipower9 said, on September 5, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Fuck Yeah! What an amazing, crazy, tortuous and redeeming game, and series/season series win!

    ALWAYS GREAT to beat the dodgers! I swear between Friday night and late today, I probably lost years off my life.

    Fuck MLB with their scheduling and having us set-up to play a day road game, tomorrow. 🖕

  42. unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Tomorrow in Colo gonna be tough to maintain this rush of beating the Dodgers.

    Such a fucking horrorshow for the Gs most of the time.

  43. unca_chuck said, on September 5, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Did anyone see the interview with Crawfish after the game? It had something to do with Crawfish washing his hair with vinegar, and how we should be 5 games behind the Dodgers?

    Can’t find it

  44. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    ESPN and the MLB Network have a couple of games each tomorrow.
    Giants are on both their own regular network and ESPN.

  45. zumiee said, on September 5, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    The Dodgers travel to St. Louis for four games. The Cards have to do well to have a reasonable chance at the second Wild Card spot. This is the season right here for the Cards. Go Cards!

  46. willedav said, on September 6, 2021 at 7:45 am

    Theme of 2021 has to be expect the unexpected. WC and pennant races very exciting. And if called up guys can help take down Buehlers of the world no sure things out there.

  47. willedav said, on September 6, 2021 at 8:09 am

    Btw Dodgers will use openers in back to back games in middle of Cards series. And they are going to be without Pollock for at least a couple weeks with strained hamstring.

  48. Irish Kevin said, on September 6, 2021 at 9:13 am

    The Athletic, Brisbee,

    A major difference in Sunday’s game is that the Giants were 4-for-10 with runners in scoring position, whereas they were 20-for-116 (.172) in their previous 15 games. That means there was a stretch of nearly 100 at-bats in which the Giants promised high hopes and delivered dashed hopes. It’s the sort of thing that can wear down a fan base. It can certainly wear down a clubhouse.

  49. mrsprtdude said, on September 6, 2021 at 10:16 am

    Kap Not juggling the rotation to get Webb for LA looks genius now. Our 2 best for Co. Ned a good start today to give bullpen a rest PS I’m the last of bred but still get SI. Great article on Braves manager Snitiker. last of the baseball lifers..

      That is pretty cool. More reason for Robo Ump.
