A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Forgettable Loss

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 21, 2022

Outside of Webb’s solidification of his general studness that was just kind of a “meh” game. The bats don’t have the magic they had in them last year. Losing Posey and Bryant will tend to have that affect. I see a lot of low batting averages up and down the line up. And the bombs we hit with such regularity last season, they are fewer and farer between.

Still, on pace to win 90 and that should be fine to get us into the dance. Another deft mid season pick up by Z (hopefully a bat or two) will have us singing “a song, a real song”, deep into the post season.

    Strike 4.

    Did they play Yellow Submarine for Rodgers?

    • unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:34 pm

      Hah!! No, they played “How can I miss you if you won’t go away?”

  3. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    A shutdown inning for Rogers!

  4. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    That play at the plate with Craw had about three different potential injuries for him.

  5. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Jocko Homo!!!

  6. Macdog said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Pearl!

  7. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Something from Rush there. Not sure why,

  8. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    La Stella got “Space Oddity.” Major Tom, of course.

  9. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    During someone’s earlier AB, when a ball was fouled off a catcher’s shin-guard, the organist played “Good Vibrations.”

  10. James said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    LaStella was the toughest ML hitter to K the year before they signed him. Given those expectations, he looks like he’s Joey Gallo without the power and the walks. What a huge disappointment.

    • djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:48 pm

      He’s more like Joey Gallo after dinner at Umberto’s…

      • James said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:55 pm

        I feel like we’ve had this exchange before. I guess I really don’t like it when some fuckin’ goombah fucks with Z’s reputation.

      • djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:08 pm

        We probably have…

      • djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:09 pm

        I wonder what I’ll post for the HR Derby…

    • zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:51 pm

      And fairly injury-prone.

  11. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Jesus. Brebbia is in the frozen aisle.

    • Macdog said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:55 pm

      Lost In The Supermarket?

      • zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:59 pm

        Great song!

  12. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Happy to see that the organist no longer leads the crowd in the “war chant.” The crowd has to try to get it going themselves, and they fizzle at it mostly. A bunch of drunken guys trying to hit the same musical notes ain’t gonna work.

  13. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Fuck. This.

  14. Macdog said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Oh my god.

  15. willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Giants trying to give it back.

  16. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Oh Jesus. What a wonderful display of fundamentals.

  17. alleykat69 said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    LaStella can’t even take the field, it is a wasted roster spot for a team that stresses flexibility on players Though there’s 3 spots Craw,Longo&Belt that don’t move
    so your only playing with 6 really..

    There’s your SS dilemma going on now! WTF Estrada it’s called ball finds glove they everybody makes but u I guess?

  18. James said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Maybe the slugging won’t be the deciding factor.

  19. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Hooooooooo boooooooooooy.

    Estrada should get Dr. Strangeglove next time up.

  20. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Dodgers took care of the Reds pretty easily tonight.

  21. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Chuck “Iron Hands” Hiller made 29 errors at 2nd base in 1962…

    • James said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:19 pm

      I’ll bet there wasn’t anything as ridiculous as Estrada’s play among those 29.

  22. willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Ha Twin’s buddy Dick Stuart. He was gonna do a bio on him and somehow paperwork got lost.
    My parents knew Stuart, who went to Sequoia HS. They were at Sequoia couple years before.

    • willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:16 pm

      In those days (late 1940s) Sequoia and Paly were only public HS around, and hated rivals.
      Carlmont of Belmont didn’t open til 1952 and Menlo-Atherton until 1951.

  23. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    After the Giants game I’ll be diving into the Churchill biography by Andrew Roberts I’ve been reading for a while. It’s about 1,000 pages long, and I’m at about page 700. The Allied tanks just defeated Rommel’s tanks in Northern Africa.

  24. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:15 pm

  25. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Every fucking ball in play is an adventure.

  26. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Belt didn’t look totally comfortable when he stood up.

  27. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Longoria got Billy Joel’s “For the Longest Time.”

  28. alleykat69 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Old farts like Belt,Craw ,Longo get hurt tying their shoelaces now.Heat in Atlanta doesn’t help those dinosaurs as well.Cranking 102 in San Carlos today though luckily none of that humidity garbage back in Hotlanta..

  29. willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Belt could end all suspense right here.

  30. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    He could end suspenders here too.

  31. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    The dreaded 3 on, none out scenario.

  32. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Hey! Atone for the error.

  33. Macdog said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    In-Estrada-Da-Vida.

    • djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:33 pm

      Brilliant!

  34. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Estrada always does things to win back good feeling about him.

  35. willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Looks like James 6:59 is right. Not the slugging but ground attack.

  36. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Missed the 0-2 mistake…

  37. alleykat69 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Eat shit LaPoopy

  38. James said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Simply not the player who was signed. The injuries didn’t make him swing at a pitch a foot above the strike zone.

    • Macdog said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:38 pm

      InterStella Overpaid.

    • willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:38 pm

      He was on the A’s and Angels and had great year. I liked the guy then and thought he was solid pickup. yuck
      maybe that’s what soured Z on giving out 3 yr deals.

    • djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:38 pm

      And he gets a raise to $11.25M next season…

  39. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Willlbuurrrrrrr!

  40. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Good old Mr. Ed!

  41. Macdog said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Wilmer makes up for last night’s horrid AB!

  42. alleykat69 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    MR.ED delivers again!!!Money hit!

  43. willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Wilmet! gad another runner out on bases.

  44. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    There’s been a lot of baseball in this baseball game.

  45. James said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Wilmer, thank you!

    • willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:44 pm

      good effing thing, holy shit

  46. unca_chuck said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Doval Doval Doval

  47. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    See my 8:32 AM – or don’t…

    • willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:53 pm

      exactly. As you said though, other options all leave something to be desired. McGee drove most of blog crazy last season and Leone has been shaky lately as well.

  48. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Ringo Starr: “It Don’t Come Easy.”

  49. Macdog said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Duvall > Doval for 2nd straight game.

  50. willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Finally, yeow.

  51. Macdog said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    No Heartbreaker tonight.

  52. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:51 pm

  53. zumiee said, on June 21, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Nice to see the offense have a big game.

  54. Lurker John said, on June 21, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Doval can be brutal to watch. And slamming your glove to the ground like a 12 year old little leaguer ain’t helping anything, dude.

  55. willedav said, on June 21, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Rogers gets W. 2 no hit no BB innings with 1 K.

    • James said, on June 21, 2022 at 9:12 pm

      He’s been scored upon in 10 of his 32 appearances. Doval is at 9 of 32. The difference between the two of them is that 7 run inning. I love players like Rogers. There will always be whipping boys who don’t deserve a fraction of the hatred directed at them.

  56. unca_chuck said, on June 22, 2022 at 6:25 am

    From Mychal Thompson:

  57. alleykat69 said, on June 22, 2022 at 7:29 am

    Yeah Damm right the T-Wolves deserve a ring!
    I commented on that a few days back on how I felt they screwed up by passing on Curry TWICE in order to take Rubio and Flynn in the 2009 draft!
    4 Championship Rings later and one of the greatest players of alltime more then justified how the Timberwolves too it up the ass in their draft room that day!
    Thanks for Wiggs too another chip piece that worked out just fine without th his great D and clutch scoring in the playoffs!

    • unca_chuck said, on June 22, 2022 at 8:38 am

      Yeah, remember that draft. I thought Flynn was nuts for them to take after picking Rubio. Who I wasn’t really sold on either.

  58. unca_chuck said, on June 22, 2022 at 7:49 am

    Jesus, looking at that 2011 draft is nuts. The Buck drafted Jimmer Fredette (Chinese Basketball League) at 10 and he was subsequently traded to the Sacramento Kings in a deal with Milwaukee and Charlotte involving John Salmons, Beno Udrih, Shaun Livingston, Corey Maggette, and Stephen Jackson.

    The T’Wolves drafted Derrick Williams (Israel Premier League) with the 2nd pick.

    The Dubs got Klay Thompson with the 11th pick.

    • willedav said, on June 22, 2022 at 7:57 am

      not a lot of nba vets out of Wazzu. Over the parade, shit talking and gloating myself.
      Doval throwing glove issue addressed by Kap, which is fine. Weird thing is Doval lost track of outs and thought t game was over after fly ball to LF was caught. ?
