A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Of Course This It’s Coming Down To Today

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 3, 2021

Not much to say about this one. A loss would be devastating as it would force us into a one game playoff with LA where we burn a good pitcher. Then if we lose that we burn about pitcher in the Wild Card game. ‘

I’m with this guy, bring this energy today….

    Hopefully today the bats can do enough damage that we don’t have to bring in a closer. Get far enough ahead that they can bring in Johnny C to shimmy and shake those last few innings.

      I saw a dude in Reno yesterday that looked exactly like you. I shoulda snapped a pic

      • Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 7:25 am

        Looked like me? That poor bastard.

    End of yday’s game as mlb channel picked up was nothing but TORTURE! The vets on this team can handle the pressure but how about the rest never really been in a must-win game. I think the only life we can breathe in the playoffs is based on a win today. A play-in and then potentially a one-game wild card would be the same as what the Dubs faced having to beat the Lakers in one game and then being out of gas going up against the Grizzlies. Win today and get a breather is the mantra and line-up the pitching.

    The AL Wild Card situation is completely insane. I watched the Mariners make a comeback win last night. They are unbelievably still in it. 4 teams separated by 1 game. Fan-bases all over the nation and in Canada are excited and in agony today.

  4. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 8:42 am

    giants have Webb going against RH opener for Pads Reiss Knehr, from Oyster Bay NY and Fordham U. Usually only goes an inning or 2 but went 4 vs. Braves and gave up 5 hits 3 runs. On the season he’s pitched 26 innings given up 20 hits 18 BBs (!) and 14 runs, WHIP is 1.45. As Xoot said, should be hitting weather. Tee off on this guy, early and often.
    Win and you’re in, same as yesterday.

    • djloo27 said, on October 3, 2021 at 11:38 am

      A long time ago, Willie, NYC was briefly nuts over Fordham coached by Digger Phelps and led by his star player, Charlie Yelverton…

    What a season. Go Giants.

  6. mrsprtdude said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:15 am

    Video pumped me up. If my dad were here he would be laughing at me today for sure. I feel like every closer we have ever had is torture! I often have the game on tv but leave the room just around the corner so i can jump in when something good happens but don’t actually watch the pitches. My wife laughs at me too.
    Hope yesterday wasn’t out Blake Snell / Russ Ortiz moment. I was super annoyed they took Glausman out. Our sport we love is littered with guys who came up big in big moments. Now they never get the chance.

    I hope analytics never show that basketball players shooting percentages get lower when they get tired, and the last shot will be taken by the scrubs!

    Anyway..Gladly ( Not sure the heart can take McGee coming in with a 1 run lead. ) the wife and i have plans to watch the HB airshow. Blue Angels and Thunderbirds in the same show for only the 2nd time in history. I am so hoping I get to join Flap celebrations posts after the game. This team has had crushing losses this year and always seem to bounce back. GO GIANTS!!

    • djloo27 said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:36 am

      Those air shows should be banned.
      No need to invite disasters.
      They arrive on their own eventually…

    • snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:55 am

      Looks like the air show has been cancelled.
      Ongoing oil spill off Huntington Beach from an offshore rig.
      Oil is fouling the beaches down there…

  7. unca_chuck said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Littell was a head scratcher with all the guys that have been successful out of the pen. He wasn’t really one of them.

  8. mrsprtdude said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Why activate McGee if you are not going to use him? Now his 1st game will be in a very high stress situation.

  9. alleykat69 said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Willied mentioned Gausman had hand cramps?
    He pitched all year and never had issue with his hand cramping up? Why this game?the one to win the division title, he was dealing at just 84 pitches,hell he even came to the mound in the top of the 8th before a PH was announced? If he’s good enough to go to the mound he’s good enough to continue.Just strange development to me, and of course they coughed up the lead right away.He pitches a good 8th hand it over to Doval and their popping champagne 🍾 last night..

    • willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:57 am

      wasn’t me but Gausman himself said it was because he threw so many splits. He wasn’t ever going to pitch the 8th at all it was
      just for show.
      mcGee was supposed to pitch 11th. Kap said he wanted to get him something other than a 9th inning just to get his feet wet before a closing op.
      Gotta admit, even though he got SF 2010, Wilson was not a guy I liked or trusted much–too much drama. And afterwards, he sucked in 2011/was an a-hole about getting his ring from 2012i n big fuss over nothing after he’d become a Dodger.

      • willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 10:03 am

        Slush said neither Leone nor Rogers were available yesterday.
        Garcia LHP not being able to finish off LH Cronenworth, who is a solid player, wound up costing him.

      • alleykat69 said, on October 3, 2021 at 10:26 am

        Yes Cronenworth is a really good player, I just like his style and professional attitude!
        However I didn’t get Garcia’s approach on his clutch AB. He had him down 1-2 in the count easily could of wasted a few pitches and he lays a pitch in there across the chest that he rakes to tie it up.Even Casali was just sticking his glove just in the middle then maybe an outside corner..

        Btw I looked towards the end of last night’s thread and it was Snarkk that said hand cramp with Gausman, I’m getting a head cramp now..

    • Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:58 am

      Gausman said that his hand sometimes gets cramps in day games when he throws a lot of splis. He threw over 30 of em yesterday. I think Kapler decided it was better to err on the side of caution.
      But I agree with you, send him out in the 8th at least until he puts a guy on base.

  10. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 9:58 am

    I hope Kap realizes that he’s in the post season setting. Now. Today. Managing by the stats has got them this far, yes. But, Bochy rightly realized that playoff ball is different. You don’t manage the same way, because there’s no next game. A loss really hurts now. Don’t just put McGoo in there to close because he’s here. Is he really back, healthy? He’s scary when he’s healthy…

  11. djloo27 said, on October 3, 2021 at 10:24 am

    1. Tommy La Stella (L) 2B

    4. Buster Posey (R) C
    5. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
    6. Kris Bryant (R) LF

  12. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 11:11 am

    checked over/under on KC and philly game–54 and 1/2. Fun game so far

    • djloo27 said, on October 3, 2021 at 11:32 am

      Didn’t take long for everyone to jump off that bandwagon…

  13. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 11:34 am

    Brett Anderson going today for the BrewCrew in LA.
    Oy.
    Over under runs in today’s win for LA?
    I’ll go with 6 1/2 and the over…

  14. zumiee said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    The Giants lineup today is the best lineup the Giants could put forth with the guys on the roster. It’s our best going today. Granted, it’s not the best defensive lineup overall, but it’s a solid defensive lineup.

    • djloo27 said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:04 pm

      Yup, pretty sure it would have been these 8 guys vs. any starter, right or left…

    • willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:09 pm

      Ruf available off bench and Giants PHs have been fantastic all season.

  15. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    whoosh great first inning for Webb.
    don’t relax against bottom order guys.

  16. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    Nice way to start this thing.

  17. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:39 pm

    Webb has it on.
    Giants need to relax with their ABs, and take some pitches — that’s their thing.
    Can’t waste this Webb outing…

  18. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:41 pm

    Dang it Longoria almost got one out.

  19. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:42 pm

    Webb said “F it”, I’ll get a hit…

  20. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:42 pm

    vince Lombardi went to Fordham, and I believe was frequent donor.

  21. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    Webb doing it with the bat.

  22. alleykat69 said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:44 pm

    The Giants win the pennant the Giants win the pennant, I want to hear those same damm words today!

    • snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:54 pm

      Slow down Kat, it’s just the division today…

  23. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:44 pm

    All LaStella has to do is block onto the LF side and he’s got a hit…

  24. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:52 pm

    Fuck YES!!!

  25. alleykat69 said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    And I was expecting Krukow to say he needs to throw strikes with The baseloaded..

    Yes Sir Clutch 2RBI hit for Buster!!!

  26. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    Clutch AB there by Posey, that’s what your possible HOFer is supposed to do…

  27. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    No one home at 3rd so Wade just kept going.

  28. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:55 pm

    Break out dem “We Score we Win” tees fellas.

  29. alleykat69 said, on October 3, 2021 at 12:55 pm

    That’s alright the spark plug Webb leads the 2 run inning!

  30. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:01 pm

    Get that run back and more.

  31. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:08 pm

    Brewers draw first blood, back to back doubles off Buehler for 1-0 lead.

  32. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:09 pm

    Gotta cash in this two walk gift …

    • snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:17 pm

      Friggin’ ump with a gimmee to the pitcher to get out Longoria.
      BTW, Longo needs to earn his keep with some hits. He barely missed an HR earlier, maybe he’s getting something back…

      • willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:19 pm
  33. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    Lamet and Rivas the C are both from the DR, no excuse for stalling.

  34. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    Webb is fucking awesome.

  35. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    Great AB by La Stella.

  36. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    If the Giants got way ahead, they should hit somebody. This is friggin’ ridiculous…

    • Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:24 pm

      Agreed.

  37. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    RISP hit for LaStella!
    walks do matter. Giants had none yesterday vs. 11 Ks.

  38. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    LaStella gets it done.
    Still, amazing how many singles they get and can’t score a guy from 2nd…

  39. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Wilmer !!!!!
    There’s the hit they needed …

  40. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Wilmet!

    Flores says I got yer RISPs.

  42. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    7-1 now, pour it on for the Division title !

  43. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    Keep it going, Giants.

  44. willedav said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:32 pm

    There you go. Thrashing Pads trash pitching.

      WEBB is on fire 🔥 3Run Bomb have a day kid!!

  50. xoot said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:46 pm

    Webb is one tough guy on the mound and in the box.

    Luckily, he was choking up to butcher boy the wild FB that hit the knob. Otherwise, . . . And then the additional wild FBs that nearly hit him were ugly, too. But I can’t see why the Giants would want to retaliate in this game, unless something worse occurs. I’d rather see them engage in a late-game HR-fest, a sort of afternoon fireworks display to celebrate

  51. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    YES!!!

  52. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    Both NY football teams won today? When was last time that happened?

    A couple more runs and bring in Johnny C to finish this.

    Should we put a C on Webb and call them Captain Webb and his Spider mates?🕸🕷

    The Muncy injury. Looks like the elbow got hyper-extended.

    As expected, LA ripping Brewers 7-1 in the 6th.
    Hey Brewers, thanks for nothin’ this weekend.
    Let’s remember that if SF faces them later…

  66. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 2:31 pm

    Hey, Kap.
    Take Webb out, that’s enough….

  67. Winder said, on October 3, 2021 at 2:36 pm

    Time to take Castro out too

  68. alleykat69 said, on October 3, 2021 at 2:40 pm

    Just glad Kap took the ball from Webb, something blogged my memory bank that it didn’t workout before??

  69. Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 2:42 pm

    Quit fucking around, turn two.

  70. snarkk said, on October 3, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    Kapler should have not put Webb back into the 8th.
    What’s the point? You’ve got 5 days for the Pen to rest up.
    Now this crap. At worst, he pulls him after the first guy gets on in the 8th, not the 3rd guy.
    Now Webb has 2 extra unnecessary earnies to his record after a really great job…

  71. zumiee said, on October 3, 2021 at 2:58 pm

    The irony is that, because the Giants lost yesterday, the Dodgers had to play it for real today, with all starters, and Muncy gets injured.

    • Bozo said, on October 3, 2021 at 3:00 pm

      and on the B side, because we lost yesterday, all our starters didn’t get the day off.
