San Die(go-away)

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 11, 2021

San Diego continues to offer zero resistance and at this point Tingler should be checking the want ads for 2022. Personally I would love to see Bochy managing them. What a story line that would be and we’d get to play him 18 times a year. That would be fun I just doubt he’d want to fire it up again but who knows? La Russa did.

Big time hitting weather today gents. It’s hot and the wind is blowing out double digits. Rocket launch time, I hope NASA is ready to track some bombs….

    Kotter rolling out same line up as yesterday.
    Wonder if Belt stays with the duct tape “C”
    Could definitely see Bochy taking over Pads next season if they go nowhere.
    I think it’s exactly what he wants to do and he’s about 6 years younger than LaRussa…

    Yeah fighting Ducks matriculate football 99 yds for TD. 7-0 in Columbus.

  4. willedav said, on September 11, 2021 at 9:49 am

    Urias wiped them out. Hitting seems big issue for SD. Tingler looks like Kap clone. Don’t think he’s the problem but might be fall guy.

  5. willedav said, on September 11, 2021 at 10:00 am

    Slush says Wilmet to be in lineup tomorrow. Also that Littell had 1 AB since HS and doesn’t take BP either. Said his bat, “looked like it had a hit in it.”

  6. djloo27 said, on September 11, 2021 at 10:23 am

    Zack Littell has appeared in 93 consecutive games without being tagged with a loss.
    Wonder what the record is?

  7. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 10:34 am

    Kapler joked about Captain Belt,Well he’s Captain of something I guess?
    Also mentioned that the duck tape C looked like it was bootlegged…

  8. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 11:10 am

    Not baseball related..So I’m sitting outdoors in my backyard just chillin with a coffee ☕️on my patio chair and this one fucking fly 🪰 just wants to buzz my ear!! They have a whole world of space but know they have to be irritating little fucks!!!

      Get a can of Raid.

  9. djloo27 said, on September 11, 2021 at 11:31 am

    I like the Wrigley outfield basket, but I’m not completely sure I get the purpose.
    Something to do with limiting fan interference I suppose.
    Right field at Oracle seems like a good place for it…

    • alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 11:38 am

      Sure would be a better idea at Oracle with that green tin scenario..

      • snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 11:59 am

        They probably don’t want Row 1 drunken fans trying to get into the basket to retrieve balls and then fall 25′ onto the field…

  10. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Not a great start by Gausman but the DP kept it to 1run atleast..

  11. chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 11:57 am

    LaStellar!

  12. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 11:58 am

    Clutch AB and hit with RISP by LaStella — about time he gets some offense going…

  13. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 11:59 am

    Way to go LaStella!
    Huge 2 out hit for 2 runs!

  14. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    Belt is friggin’ en fuego — go Captain ! …

  15. chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    Captain Belted…

  16. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    Yeah baby Belt says I don’t need the C to succeed!!

  17. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    Ride Captain ride aboard my mystery ship..

  18. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    That’s 2 Ks with man on 3rd for Yaz.
    Why not put Duggar in for him for a couple of games. Duggar at least seems to make contact.
    Yaz can’t lay off high pitches, and the oppo knows it…

    • Winder said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:27 pm

      I think the ump called a couple of high strikes also.

    • chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:30 pm

      Duggar K’d five times in his last two games….

      • snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:39 pm

        I’d still take him over Yaz right now.
        Yaz has been on a K and low contact streak for weeks.
        Duggar was hot in Denver…

  19. chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    Shootout between Ducks and OSU…

  20. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    Gyros defense not helping this inning…

  21. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    After butchering that flyball I’m all in for a Duggar start tomorrow over Yaz that was the 3rd out and now the Cubs just got 2 runs out of it..

  22. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:01 pm

    #3OSU season for the National Championship basically over as #12 Oregon takes them down in their house!!35-28!!

    • snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:05 pm

      Good news for Pac12.
      Tough to win at the Horseshoe…

  23. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:03 pm

    Cubs dinkin’ and dunkin’ here…

  24. chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    Need to add on…

  25. chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:20 pm

    Congrats to the Ducks and the Pac 12.

  26. chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    LOL. Well, take em however the hell you can get em!

  27. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    OK, here’s Yaz up again, bags loaded.
    Let’s see what happens, he’s got to get a man in…

  28. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    Yes to Yaz, he gets it done ! …

  29. chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    Yeah baby…nice poke by Yaz to bring in two!

  30. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:25 pm

    The pretty poor Team pitching stats on the Cubs weren’t a mirage.
    They’re not very good…

  31. chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    LaStellar Bombs away!

  32. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    LaStella getting in a groove !
    Gyros have hitting shoes on now.
    Long may it last the rest of the season…

  33. Macdog said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Tommy bomb!

  34. djloo27 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:30 pm

    Stomp their guts out!

  35. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    I just realized that right field scoreboard makes it almost impossible to hit one outta Wrigley to right field and onto Sheffield avenue, ala Will Clark in the ’89 NLCS. That’s kind of a bummer. I wonder if part of that was to screw with the property holders across the street who have those seating areas on their roofs. There were lawsuits for years over those businesses. In the MLB site vid of the home run you can see blue seats across the street totally empty on the right of the scoreboard…

    • snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:54 pm

      A little Wiki research showed that the Ricketts family that owns the Cubs has now successfully bought out most of the property owners on Waveland and Sheffiled, so now they own almost all those “Wrigley Rooftops”. The Ricketts family is known for various forms of douchebaggery and one is a governor of Nebraska and avowed follower of “the former guy”…

  36. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    5 RBI’s for LaStella a personal best in a game!
    This team is a juggernaut right now.U can rest the BP all they want which is a bonus in blowouts. Give Gausman 6 innings tops and hand it over to the pen for easy cleanup..

    • djloo27 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:40 pm

      Is Castro still with the team?
      Who can keep track?

      • snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:47 pm

        Castro is still on the active roster according to sfgiants.com …

  37. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:52 pm

    Yes Castro still there there carrying 15 pitchers right now crazy but only 3 starters Gausman,Disco and Webb lots of opener options..

  38. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 1:56 pm

    Gausman just passed 200 Ks for the season.
    His first season doing that…

  39. Macdog said, on September 11, 2021 at 2:32 pm

    Brothers grim.

  40. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 2:44 pm

    I’m up for a Brebbia appearance under these conditions…

  41. mrsprtdude said, on September 11, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    Nice win!!!

  42. djloo27 said, on September 11, 2021 at 3:10 pm

  43. Macdog said, on September 11, 2021 at 3:11 pm

    Six in a row! Series win at Wrigley!

  44. snarkk said, on September 11, 2021 at 3:17 pm

    Krukow would be right to do his horselaugh and “just another — laugher” on this one.
    Giants are firing on all cylinders, but shoot — how did Cubs just win 7 straight or whatever? They’re pitching is not good. 11 walks issued today — you’re gonna get smoked when you give that many walks…

  45. Flavor said, on September 11, 2021 at 3:18 pm

    old school save by Baragar. 3 innings.

  46. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 3:42 pm

    Webb could throw a no hitter tomorrow against these chumps..

  47. Macdog said, on September 11, 2021 at 3:51 pm

    Ruf getting a nice rest in Chitown, and hasn’t played a whole game since Monday.

  48. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 5:14 pm

    Great win today, and go Padres tonight.

  49. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 5:20 pm

    It would be very nice to have the division won before the last weekend of the season. The Dodgers play the Brewers at the end, and the Brewers will likely have nothing to play for that weekend. Their position in the playoffs will likely be set by then.

  50. willedav said, on September 11, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    Yaha Arkansas doinks FG in off upright for 16-0 lead over Texas

    • Flavor said, on September 11, 2021 at 5:32 pm

      wilco Joe not gonna like this

      • willedav said, on September 11, 2021 at 5:50 pm

        These guys want in SEC, yet can’t win conference they are already in. The old SWC was one great league, especially for football and greedy horns ruined it.

  51. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    The baseball media’s Jeter-gasm seems to be fading out a bit finally. It got pretty embarrassing, actually.
    And Larry Walker? That’s a Hall of Fame career? Whatever. The Hall is not particularly riveting topic anyway.

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

    I’m saying the odds are 95% that Bochy is managing the Padres next season.

    • willedav said, on September 11, 2021 at 6:02 pm

      Seems unfair. Pads have exact same record Braves do, tied for 4th best in league. Injuries to pitchers and Tatis Jr have done them in. Maybe they do need couple guys off Kap’s hitting coach mafia 🙂

      • willedav said, on September 11, 2021 at 6:34 pm

        Tinglers fault projections were so high? What about guys Preller has acquired, and given away…let alone overpay for Hosmer and Myers.

  53. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    There’s potential for major carnage in the managing ranks after the season. Padres, D-Backs, Rockies, Yankees, Mets, and some others.

  54. willedav said, on September 11, 2021 at 6:31 pm

    33-7 now. Guess Wilco blowing up Twitter. Too bad,his posts here so few and far between.

    • alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 6:53 pm

      Been a Longhorns fan all my life, but the program has progressively gotten worse.They have had terrible recruiting classes compared to other programs and now hiring Sarkisien I don’t see it, can’t stand that guy and his whole sketchy past!!

  55. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    Padres for sure need a new manager. Bochy’s restless it’s still in his blood to return, plus doesn’t he still live in SD?Yes they have certainly had their share of injuries,but their still to much talent on the roster to be fighting for wild card spot, Tingler takes the fall.Same goes for Toronto’s manager Montoya with the talent they have just not getting it done..
    Rojas gone, Lovello, definitely gone,Boone,Yanks will stay

    • zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 7:04 pm

      Maybe the Cleveland manager takes the fall for his team getting no-hit 3 times this season.

    • chipower9 said, on September 11, 2021 at 7:05 pm

      Yes, Bochy still has a place in the SD area. Also in Nashville. Splits time between the two.

  56. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on September 11, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    Thanks, Loo.

  57. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    The 9th no-hitter this season, which is a new MLB record, surprises no one. HR-derby-ball makes for a lot of no-hitters.

  58. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 7:53 pm

    The Padres just get beat down by the Dodgers every season. Part of it has to be psychological. They don’t fully believe they can deal with the Dodgers.

    • willedav said, on September 11, 2021 at 8:06 pm

      They won 7 of first 10 or 11 vs LA. It’s after deadline they have fallen apart

      • zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 8:24 pm

        Every season.

  59. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    Geez poor Zach Plesac he was starting pitcher/ loser in all 3 no hitters thrown against Cleveland this year.Doubt any other pitcher will touch that in dubious record..

    Jim Perry(Gaylord’s brother) had 3 against him in the 70’s but not in the same year..

  60. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    I’m upping the percentage to a 99% chance Bochy is managing the Padres next season.

  61. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Padres scored a couple of runs off Treinen. At least that was something.

  62. zumiee said, on September 11, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    The ump ripped off Muncy on a strike 3 call. That was cool.

  63. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Stanford looking sharp 1st half up 21-10 over USC
    Big plays by their QB Tanner McKee 9-11 151 yards 2 TD’s
    and a 87 yard TD run by Peat..

    • Macdog said, on September 11, 2021 at 10:09 pm

      Now a pick-6 and it’s 28-13.

  64. alleykat69 said, on September 11, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Oh hell let’s make it 35-13 on a McKee sneaker
    Just blowing up USC in every department..
