A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Embarassing

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 16, 2022

If only they’d put Pujols in earlier—we would have destroyed them.

Ugly. And about to get uglier with a trip into Sherpaland.

Who got the last laugh, bitch?

    What a humiliation for Chris Paul and the Suns. Dubs in 5 over Mavericks. A Finals against Celtics May set all time tv ratings records.

    Bark wars: After an 0-15 stretch to start month, he’s 3-8 with 2 walks and his 4th HR. Giants have lost 7 of last 10 games he has caught. But before that was 5 game winning streak. OPS up to .722, .338/.385

    36 HRs hit yesterday. All count even if few were hit off non pitchers. 8-7 game in Sherp town yesterday.

    53 runs scored in Rox 3 game homestand vs. Royals this past weekend. Rox got 27,and lost 2 of 3 including 14-10 game.
    For season, they have outscored opponents 119-101 at home. After trip to SF, 41-87 on road.

    Mavs series feels a little like Nuggets series. They got 1 guy. I’m feeling pretty confident.

    • unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:15 am

      Yep. Agree. They won’t shoot that well as a team for quite a while.

    • willedav said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:28 am

      mmm #1 ranked Suns probably felt same way. Interesting column in Athletic on what did them in, and Utah, vs. Mavs and “space ball” small lineup that can defend and score. For some reason Stanford guy D Powell seems to do very well vs. GS.
      I’d feel better if Porter Jr. is ready to play by Wed. Let’s be real–there were some very discouraging things Warriors did in series vs. Memphis, who played most of it without their best player. And no Griz aren’t better without him. He almost won game 1 and single handedly won game 2. Griz lost 2 close games without him.

      Wiggins likely gets most of assignment vs. Doncic. Mavs have much better support players than Jokic had around him. Return of J Kidd to Bay Area will be neat story. Remember him from HS days at .St. Joseph’s Alameda.

      • Macdog said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:42 am

        One of those support players is Dinwiddie, who scored 30 last night and who I greatly wish the Nets could’ve kept.

      • willedav said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:50 am

        Yeah Mac. Liked SD when he played at Colorado in Pac 12. Tremendous HS player at Taft of Woodland Hills CA.

  5. Flavor said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:56 am

    Kidd’s gonna send 2/3 guys at Steph and Klay/Poole/etc will beat them. I actually don’t even think this will be close. Dubs in 5

    Gonzalez was the most effective Giants pitcher last night hitting a high of 81 on the FB and a low of 41 on his Effeus lob.ERA .000!! Hits a HR,, but also made a sensational catch in full sprint mode diving in foul territory, he’s been a great addition to the team.Glove work can be shaky, but his bat certainly isn’t ( broke up Wainwright’s no hit run) just looking for a positive in a horrible back to back shit show by the Giants..

    “No laid eggs on national tv, ok?”

    Unfortunately, many eggs were laid.

    I hear NBA coaches say, matter-of-factly: “This is a make-or-miss league,” conceding that whichever team shoots their 3s better that night will probably win. It seems pretty fatalistic. I don’t think NFL defensive coaches are that fatalistic.

  9. Bozo said, on May 16, 2022 at 12:45 pm

    I know it was his call to go to Cincy, but I still feel bad for David Bell.

    • alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 1:32 pm

      Yeah I feel bad David Bell as well Bozo.
      I doubt he expected the Reds management of trading away good ball players like Winkler and others to become a cheapskate organization ..

    • unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 2:50 pm

      And y’all thought Marge Schott was a piece of work.

  10. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    FWIW, just read The Stranger by Albert Camus. One trippy little book. One of the kids musta taken Philosophy so there you go. Existential fun. Written (and published) in France in 1942 during the occupation, it reads pretty modern.

  11. xoot said, on May 16, 2022 at 4:01 pm

    “but he has options” writes Slusser, predicting tonight’s roster move to make room for LaStella. Every option-owning player on the Giants 40 man should have that noted next to “Bats: [L/R/Sw]” along with an indication of how many option trips down he’s made so far this season.

  12. Macdog said, on May 16, 2022 at 4:03 pm

    • djloo27 said, on May 16, 2022 at 4:05 pm

      Gonzalez???
      WTF???
      Options my ass!!!

      • Macdog said, on May 16, 2022 at 4:14 pm

        Yeah, he was our best pitcher this weekend.

      • alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 4:43 pm

        Man the Giants and Z have to show all of baseball they are the option kings!
        Of course Z has to get LaStella backup to show he wasn’t a mistake signing!
        Sending down Gonzalez who’s been there best hitter.344? makes no freakin sense?
        Guess he pitched to well to stick, I’m getting annoyed with options almost everyday, and especially when a player like Gonzalez at minimum strengthens the bench more..

    Speaking of options, about 45 years or so ago, I was in Yosemite, and went to a gift-shop there at some point, and they had one of those old-fashioned paperback racks that would spin, so I spun the rack around and saw a novel called “Options,” by Robert Sheckley. The cover looked intriguing, so I bought the book. The book turned out to be hilarious and trippy. I wasn’t familiar with Sheckley and didn’t know he was known for humorous science fiction.
    Here’s a description I recently saw online that describes the book well:
    “Options is a 1975 absurdist science fiction novel by Robert Sheckley. The story is ostensibly about a marooned space traveller’s attempt to get a spare part for his starship, the Intrepid III. He has a robotic guard, programmed to guard him against all planetary dangers. But soon he discovers that the robot has not been programmed for the planet where they are, with comic results. However, the narrative later descends into a mass of diversions, non-sequiturs and meditations on the nature of authorship. Eventually the diversions take over the book to the extent that the author openly introduces an increasingly bizarre succession of deus ex machina in an attempt to get the novel back on track, but eventually admits defeat.”

    • unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 5:12 pm

      OMG. That sounds hysterical. Funny, I found a book the same way some time in the 70s called “Friends Come in Boxes” where science has developed enough so that brain transplants from an old worn-out body to a new one are commonplace. Except for the fat that new bodies can’t be produced fast enough for demand, so brains are placed into portable boxes where the brains can communicate while in statis. Hilarity ensues.

      Can’t find the book. No idea who wrote it.

      • unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 5:14 pm

        Huh. I did this search about 14 year ago and came up with nothing. It is Michael Coney.

        viola vuala? How the fuck do you spell that?

      • xoot said, on May 16, 2022 at 7:17 pm

        Check out Lincoln in the Bardo, by the great George Saunders.

  15. willedav said, on May 16, 2022 at 5:33 pm

    I’m sure LaStella, like every other hitter, feels healthy enough to hit at Coors.
    Marte gave up couple runs again yesterday, right? He gone, and Walton lasted what, one day?
    All the moves and minors guys added–can any of them beside Gonzalez maybe–actually play MLB?

  16. willedav said, on May 16, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Bum and his 1.78 ERA at Latrine tonight.

  17. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    *gulp*

  18. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Casalilater!

  19. alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Wow nice call by Lopez,seconds before Casali’s blast he was saying how both Bart and him hit Bombs in STL and would like to see that trend keep going then Boom!

  20. willedav said, on May 16, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    9 ground ball outs from Wood. Nice play from Estrada and Belt.
    Giants have hit 7 themselves through 4.

  21. Bozo said, on May 16, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Wow, that got out of there in a hurry.

  22. xoot said, on May 16, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Curt Casali, Backup Bomber

  23. Macdog said, on May 16, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Joey who?

  24. alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Casali is Wally Pippin Bark right now.
    2Huge Bombs 💣 he must of ate 2 bowls of Wheaties before the game, are Popeyes Spinach? though that might blow easier in the squat and the ump would not be happy smelling that stench..

    • xoot said, on May 16, 2022 at 7:18 pm

      now everyone’s a belletrist

  25. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Nice.

  27. willedav said, on May 16, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Before Ruf double, Giants not named Casali were 3-21, all singles. Now another knock! Gotta bust this open here.

  28. alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Can’t ask for a better scenario baseloaded no outs and now a run on a boot E-5 and a Flores RIB still no outs with Yaz let’s break this game open!!

  29. willedav said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    stop walking guys in this park!
    Tie ballgame, yuck.

  30. Macdog said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Two killer walks, way to go Rogers.

  31. alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Rodgers is so maddening to watch!Should of kept Gonzalez brought him in instead and throw some Effeus 41 mile an hour junk..

  32. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    SHit. What’d I miss? Was 6-4.

  33. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    Get the ball down Brebbia

  34. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Huh. The Brebbia aisle is movin’ on up.

  35. alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    One frustrating word RODGERS!!
    2 hits 2 walks 2 runs Chuck..

  36. Macdog said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Yazzle Dazzle.

  40. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Yaz!!!!!!!!!

  41. alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Just that second delay taking gamer lady away who got smoked in the dugout on Slater’s unfortunately line shot, might have thrown the pitcher off, certainly not YAZ as he crushed it!!

  42. Macdog said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Doval pitches around Cron and nails it down. All’s Well That Ends Well.

  43. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Woo hoo! 11-0 vs the Rocks.

  44. djloo27 said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:07 pm

  45. Bozo said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Whew.

  46. alleykat69 said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Woo Hoo

    Casali &Yaz getting in done!

  47. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Brebbia with the W.

  48. Macdog said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    The last time Giants lost to the Rox was the game I met up with Flav, Chi and Sarge last August.

  49. Winder said, on May 16, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    What a game, I thought we were gonna lose that one.

  50. unca_chuck said, on May 16, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    D-bags with 2 in the 9th. 5-4 Dodgers tho.
