A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Tough Assignment

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 11, 2021

This feels like an upcoming….loss. We don’t hit Scherzer well (besides Craw and Stelly) and everyone of their guys hits Wood well. Whatever, that’s why they play the game though, right?

http://dailybaseballdata.com/cgi-bin/dailyhit.pl

I’d like to hope that Wood might rise up to the challenge and Max might finally start to be slowed a bit by his 37th year on this planet but that might just be wishful thinking.

      Hang in there Fred !!

  2. Bozo said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    McGeehee gets er done. With a tip o the cap to Craw climbing the ladder.

  3. snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Time for Dick to yank one…

    • snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:15 pm

      I tried…

  4. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Doval alone in the BP. If he goes in the 8th, who goes in the 9th?

    • snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:16 pm

      Kap wants him to take out the big bats coming up…

  5. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Doval

    • chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:16 pm

      Not what I wanted to hear. Doval for two? Hmmm…

  6. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Kapler’s going old school.

  7. alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Geez between GD and Dickless that was a lot of limp dick AB’s

  8. mrsprtdude said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Not a fan of a rookie getting 6 outs. Who comes in if he struggles? Torture

  9. snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Serious business now..,

  10. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Agree, MSD. I would have went with Castro in the 8th….

  11. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Castro’s younger than Doval

    • unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:21 pm

      I think

      • chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:29 pm

        Maybe, but I like his stuff and his composure….

  12. djloo27 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Total wing job by Kotter tonight.
    Should be double barrel action in the Giant pen at all times now…

  13. alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Biggest moment in Doval’s young career, go get em with your blazing 2 pitch combo!!

  14. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Fuck blue

  15. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Yes!!!!

  16. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Breathe….

  17. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    No shit. This is nuts. Too old for this shot!

  18. alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Ice in his veins and heat in that arm!
    Doval gets through the 8th 1-2-3!!!

  19. Macdog said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Onto the 9th.
    Sweaty palms? Check.
    No fingernails left? Check.

  20. Bozo said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Another run or five would be great right about now.

  21. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Oh good. He’s good for a rocket to the cheap seats

  22. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Jansen that is

  23. snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Need a Jansen melt down…

  24. willedav said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    just don’t want to see Doval get beat with that slider in wrong place. Dogs didn’t touch the fastball and that was heart of the order.

  25. snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Nobody was at 3rd. A bunt there was a gimme Hit with Posey following…

  26. djloo27 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Caught looking for a change…

  27. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Crawfish needs a dinger

  28. alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Crash cart with paddles?check
    Over excessive of alcohol needed? check

  29. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Oh boy. Doval without a net.

  30. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    “Too old for this shot”… I like your typo better, Charlie. Never too old for a good shot. If I didn’t have to teach an online class in an hour, that’s what I’d be doing right about now…

  31. Macdog said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    A few Ks by the Giants tonight.

  32. snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Kap putting a ton of Trust in this kid and his stuff. Has he ever gone two up here?
    It’s the right move, the only move…

  33. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Here. We. GO!!

  34. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    He’s pitched an inning and a half a few times

  35. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Inning and 2/3s

  36. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    No shit I need a shot…

  37. alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Ok 1 run is going to have to due.
    Show the Flap your unflappable kid!! 🙏
    Let’s get this bitch in the pivotal swing game!!

  38. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    This feels like everything this team has done this year comes down to this half inning…

  39. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Fucking quick outs are awesome

  40. mrsprtdude said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Lets go!!

  41. alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Sit down Pollock what a beautiful slider!!

  42. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Wow!!!!!!

  43. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    DOVAL!

  44. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    As Kruk would say: Unbelievable.

  45. Macdog said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    YES! WHAT A WIN!

  46. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Holy shit!

    Doval is a stud !!…

  48. Winder said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Fuck yeah

  49. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Six fucking outs to close it out! Broke that 16 game win streak! Fuck yeah!

    • alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:52 pm

      Love my twilight midget he never comes up short when we need him!

  51. willedav said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Round 3 to Kap. Pen management filled in for Wood. that’s twice now Giants have shut Dodgers out in 3 games. Can’t beat pitching and D.

  52. snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I‘m heading for a Scotch !

    • alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:50 pm

      Have my Buffalo Trace 3 cubes going right now Snarkk 🥃

      • snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:51 pm

        Sweet!

  53. Macdog said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    A 1-out save for the wind.

  54. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I’m a little concerned about the Giants hitting or lack thereof. And yet, it’s the Dogs who have been shut out twice. Sweet.

  55. alleykat69 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    The inner Bumgarner vibes come thru!!
    The Kid is unbelievable!!!
    I’m still shaking!!
    Fuck LA !!! Let’s wrap this bitch up!!!

  57. djloo27 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    • willedav said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:07 pm

      Beautiful tune.
      Dogs fans whining about it. Giants played in it too. Didn’t bother Longoria.

  58. Bozo said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    The Great Santini with the save!
    GIANTS.

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:52 pm

      Good one!

    • Macdog said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:54 pm

      Haha.

  59. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Me too, Tom. 🥃

    • snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:57 pm

  60. mrsprtdude said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    FUCK YAY!!!! Doval is our K-Rod!

  61. mrsprtdude said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Snarkk and Kat.. Makers.. The look on Lux’s face after the catch was classic. Great catch by Dugger too while slipping on the water on the track!

    • snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:58 pm

      Hell yeah.
      If any game this year deserved a celebratory dram, this one does.
      I’ve put the defibrillator back in the closet, for tonight anyway…

  62. xoot said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    what a great game. if it wern’t for bad lux, he’d no lux at all. shorto? fuck you.

    also, i hear that some of Gruden’s bad tweets concerned the Giants — calling Dickerson juvenile white-jock joke names etc.

    lol

    • chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:59 pm

      Fuck Gruden. Hope that cocksucker end up broke and destitute.

    • willedav said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:08 pm

      no lux at all good one!

  63. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    I’m going Glenmorangie Highland single malt….cheers Flappers!

    • snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 9:59 pm

      Damn, Chi bringing out the good stuff !
      Woo hoo !!!! …

      • chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:00 pm

        Fresh bottle. Been sitting for a bit…it was time.

      • snarkk said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:03 pm

        I’ve poured a dram of some Highland stuff, not bad — pretty good, actually.

  65. djloo27 said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    I think on a normal night, Lux shot lands in Row 10.
    That ball was absolutely crushed.
    Amazing that Candlestick weather did them in…

    • chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:28 pm

      Yeah, they were interviewing Webb during the game, and he alluded that the weather is what they are used to, and maybe that plays in their favor tonight. It sure as hell did. Thanks to the Baseball Gods….

    • gianthead said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:30 pm

      Beautiful wind from the North!!!!

    • unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:38 pm

      The ghost of Willie McCovey and all those lost home runs knocked those balls down.

  66. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Woodford Kentucky Reserve whiskey. Never been a scotch guy.

    Fuck yeah!

    • chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:30 pm

      I almost went Woodford. This scotch was a gift I got some time ago, I like to mix it up and a good single malt works for me, on occasion. Big bourbon and whiskey fan, too.

  67. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    • chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:33 pm

      Love that. I’ve got a Timmy Fuck Yeah shirt. Miss that guy….

      • Pawlie Kokonuts said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:42 pm

        I bought one of those t shirts on the street in the Sunset in 2012 and gave it to my daughter, now a newlywed. She wore it to high school. (I know, bad parenting.) Technically, the shirt didn’t have the word on it because where the U would be was an image of Timmy in his windup.

    • Pawlie Kokonuts said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:33 pm

      that’s funny crazy

      • unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:40 pm

        Cool thing is, you play that on Youtube, and the next vid is Askon and Don’t stop believing.

  68. gianthead said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    What an ending. Just got to see the last out. Meet MR. CAMILO DOVAL you frickin Dodger losers!!!

  69. Pawlie Kokonuts said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Dennis Z and I held hands more or less by commiserating on the phone while we watched the game a couple hundred miles from each other. The trouble is, we discovered, he’s about 5 or 6 seconds ahead of me. He said, I’ll keep quiet. No, you won’t. You can’t. How about FUCK means something bad happened and YES means something good. No, we don’t have to do that. You can’t keep quiet and you know it. So, when he screamed, 5 or 6 seconds ahead of me, I was, like, what? what happened? no! What? Tell me. Finally he said, Game over. Relief.

    Incidentally, Camilo Doval is Sergio Romo’s alien cousin. Ice in his veins. In true Maysian fashion he is having fun while being brilliant. Imagine that. Fun.

  70. denniszu said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Time for that shot of whiskey and a salute the Giants flag outside.
    Harold Reynolds on MLB said it best

    The Giants just shocked the world

    • Pawlie Kokonuts said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:39 pm

      Does that mean you have a shot and salute the flag tomorrow morning too? Glad we kept each other off the ledge tonight on the phone. G’night.

  71. gianthead said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Who do the Dodgers throw tomorrow???? Looks like Yaz and Late Night did some bench time.

  72. Pawlie Kokonuts said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    I’m a bit superstitious and don’t want to jinx things, nor get ahead of ourselves, but the look on the Dodgers’ faces …. I mean, have we ever seen anything like it? After Doval got the last out (Duggar almost fell), they were like, that’s not fair, this can’t be, something’s wrong here, this is a mistake, something is off-kilter. THEY WERE DAZED, petulant, protesting mentally, aghast, took it as a personal effront.

    • djloo27 said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:44 pm

  73. chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    They’re speculating Buehler back on short rest for tomorrow, and would throw Urias if there was a game 5. Sounds like Disco for us tomorrow.

    Let’s beat Buehler for the third straight time and close this motherfucker out!

    • Pawlie Kokonuts said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:43 pm

      Put our boots on their necks.

    It once was Fear the Beard and now it’s
    Fear the Flamethrower

  75. unca_chuck said, on October 11, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Shit, Urias vs Webb would be nuts. Got to get it dome tomorrow.

    • chipower9 said, on October 11, 2021 at 11:47 pm

      Agree. I really don’t want to see Urias in a game 5.
