A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

45 Hits

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 2, 2022

They got 45 hits this weekend. That is pathetic. A team that flies all the way across the country and plays in our pitcher friendly park should never, ever bang 45 hits across 3 games vs us.

Utterly unacceptable.

    That series was not expected. Dubs survived barely. Klay missing two free throws maybe more shocking than the Giants-Gnats series…

      Tough when you have not been at line all game.

        He could get out of bed and make a 100 in a row at the local gym.

        Âh Steph too yet he missed 10 of 39 in Denver series.

        Yes, as you know, I’m not a big believer in professional athletes who always rise to the moment versus those who inevitably choke, but this Splash Brothers free throw debacle is pretty weird. Curry is also missing an inordinate number of wide open 3s. I mean, right now I’d rather see GP2 take an uncontested 3 than Curry. Still, you have to ask, why now? Do they feel more pressure as 30+ veterans than they did in their late 20s? Bizarre.

    i’m embarrassed to say I gave up on that game. Memphis was hitting all their 3s, Dubs missing theirs, then Draymond gets bounced, the game was just pissing me off so I quit. Mad at myself.

    I had shit to do and watched all they way to the end of the 3rd quarter and was driving across the bay. I didn’t want to listen, but my curiosity got the better of me. I turned on the radio 10 seconds before Klay hit the go-ahead 3 and agonized over the last half hour (25 seconds). Crazy game.

    Watched the 4th quarter on my DVR and the recording ended right before the last play. Then I searched for the highlights on my computer and finally saw the last play. Outstanding D by Steph and Klay at the end to seal that win. Ja could have easily passed to someone else for an open look, but he took the tough runner.

    The officiating was absolutely horrible. Even without the god-awful ejection of Dray, the refs called numerous ticky tacky fouls in the first 5 minutes to put both Steph and Klay in early foul trouble.

    And the refs could have called for a review after the second missed (!!!) FT by Thompson ball that went OB obviously off a Grizzly. THREE fucking officials are suddenly not playing attention on the play?

    Payton’s early dunk was amazing, I love that guy and energy he brings to D and rebounding.

    This is supposed to be pretty good:

    I would not have predicted the Nats winning the series. That’s one of the reasons I don’t gamble.

  8. zumiee said, on May 2, 2022 at 2:22 pm

    Not all errors are equal. That error at third base in the first inning opened the floodgates. The Giants could have possibly gotten out of that inning with zero runs given up, and the game might have played out completely different.

    When I was playing high school varsity basketball, in a league game I stepped to the free throw line for two shots with our team behind by one point, and two seconds left in regulation. I actually made the first shot to tie the game, but missed the second, and we ended up losing in overtime. I felt bad about missing the second free throw, and, after the game, the total jerk who was coaching our team criticized me harshly for missing that second free throw. I didn’t say anything back to him. The other players were cool, and gave me credit for making one of the shots.
    Over the years, I’ve watched NBA players miss BOTH free throws in those situations sometimes. My varsity basketball coach totally sucked. He was fired a few years later and was never a head coach again.
    The irony: a couple of weeks after that overtime loss one of our players was spotted playing in some kind of recreational city league game, which caused us to have to forfeit all the league games we had won to that point. (One game.)

    Not surprising the Nats have some good hitters (Soto,Bell,Robales etc) Giants we’re coming off that crazy road trip but comeback with a team now like a Mash unit, Yaz Covid,Belt Covid,Pederson groin,no Wade,Longo,LaStella easy to see a letdown when your playing AAAA kids..

    Krizan and Marte optioned…

  12. unca_chuck said, on May 2, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Krizan gets his cup of coffee. Never to be heard from again.

    • Flavor said, on May 2, 2022 at 7:41 pm

      at least he got his hit. That’s gotta make him feel pretty good considering all those years toiling down below

    I just don’t get why MLB is pissing off fans by offering all these different platforms to watch games from. Apple TV, Peacock, YouTube, whatever the fuck. It changes week to week, month to month, and season to season.

    All is does is lose fans or drive them to streaming services.

    • djloo27 said, on May 2, 2022 at 7:43 pm

      They don’t want our demographic, Chuck…

    • unca_chuck said, on May 2, 2022 at 8:34 pm

      We are the last demographic to care. Baseball will likely be done as a major sport in 15-20 years.

    I guess baseball is losing its young fans, and you need to get ’em early to sustain them. When I was a kid, we played baseball a lot. Didn’t need 2 teams of 9 players, just needed a few friends to throw hit and field, but there were also loads of leagues to play in. Inner city, rigging up a basket and shooting basketballs is easy and doesn’t require anybody else, not to mention finding a playground court, but kids also played stickball in the streets easily enough. Do they not do that anymore? Is that a stupidly naive question? Do kids today watch baseball on TV/online if they’re not playing it in real life? Somehow, it seems kids have lost the *romance* and the summer day warm fuzzies of baseball. Not sure how that can be raised from the near dead at this point….

    • willedav said, on May 2, 2022 at 9:40 pm

      no idea how you get them off video games and out to play.

    • unca_chuck said, on May 3, 2022 at 10:32 am

      There are plenty of suburban kids playing the game.

  15. willedav said, on May 2, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    During one of those segments where you could hear coaches on bench, Kerr talked about winning possession game. GS outrebounded Memphis even without Green in there and got up more shots.
    Suns did that tonight in beating Dallas–they got up 6 more shots/made 6 more baskets.
    analytics taking over basketball too…probably have been for years now.

    All the youth baseball these days is organized leagues. Kids aren’t playing pick-up baseball games anymore. And a lot gets lost because of that. Looking back, I marvel at how well we got along in those pick-up games. If there was a dispute on a play, we didn’t need an adult there to resolve it; we peacefully solved it ourselves, usually with a “do-over,” which was fine. The batter never minded a “do-over.” It meant getting to hit again. We learned to resolve things. It was part of the maturing process.
    And, of course, nowadays, school yards are locked when school is out for the summer, and to have pick-up games kids would have to climb a fence and literally trespass.
