A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Ouch

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on August 10, 2022

I just checked my emailing hoping that Stix had this thread covered. No such luck. He must be raging in a Minnesota forest.

Why does everything Rogers throw up there look so obviously hittable?

    Because he’s more or less throwing a fast pitch softball…

  2. Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 6:52 am

    On the bright side, we haven’t seen Luis Gonzalez pitch in almost a month.

  3. willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 6:53 am

    Cobb lasted 5 on 90 pitches. followed by Marte Garcia Leone, then Rogers after Giants had tied it up. Seems like rather odd order; who would Kap have gone to had Rogers shut Pads down and game gone into extras?

  4. willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 7:32 am

    Baggs said Kap was deciding btw Doval (for 3rd day in row) and Rogers as both warmed up top 9 and went to some lengths to note Rogers has allowed less hard contact and HRs than Doval yada yada. Leone and others just haven’t measured up and there were zero adds to pen at deadline. As Flav mentioned week ago, multiple Tigers pen guys were available at time, from Avila the clueless.

      Fulmer woulda looked pretty sweet in that situation. Of course that isn’t dumpster diving so Z had no idea how to get him

  5. alleykat69 said, on August 10, 2022 at 8:28 am

    Kapler’s so full of shit, hard contact allowed lol, seems to me Doval blew away the heart of the order the previous night Soto,Machado,&Bell without any hard contact.
    Bad break Longo’s smash was caught instead of trapped, then Rodgers would of sat with his chocolate cocoa in the BP instead and Doval gets to close it out against the same 3 which would of been epic to do twice..

    So what’s the deal with Bart? Unavailable with bad ankle to PH even in the 9th? And Kappy trying to fool the Padres on his availability, like that worked.10 day IL coming? Just when he’s heating up? Guess we will see MRI scheduled today…

  6. Flavor said, on August 10, 2022 at 8:41 am

    as bad as that loss was, hey, win today and you take the series. Go get em

  7. willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 8:51 am

    Dunno what’s up but Luis Gonzalez in epic slump at plate. Since he returned from 2 weeks on IL in early July, OPS has gone from .808 to .720. B/R says he’s 4-27 in August and 6-43 with ! HR. He still gets BBs and occasional bunt for a hit, but power has all but disappeared. 9 SBs, um when he isn’t getting picked off.

  8. alleykat69 said, on August 10, 2022 at 9:17 am

    Did I hear the Giants were successful with 23 straight steal attempts? That blows me away!
    To go along with 24 bunts for hits leading the league and Sac Flies up there as well..

    • djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 10:05 am

      I still can’t get over 18 pinch homers last season…

      • willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 10:12 am

        yeah. The great Jerry Lynch would be proud. According to B/R SABR info he still holds ML record (with 2 others including Rusty Staub) for most rbis in a season as PH, 25 in 1961 with Reds.
        Loved watching great PHs, even ex Giant Manny Mota.

      • djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 10:19 am

        I was terrified of him when I was about 10…

  9. djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 10:25 am

    Catching up with the great Frank Gore…

    • unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 10:48 am

      Oh my. Come on, Frank!! Say it ain’t so!

  10. Macdog said, on August 10, 2022 at 12:32 pm

    Watching the Mets beat up on Cincy, my god the Reds are bad. And the Giants lost 4 of 6 to that team.

  11. djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 12:48 pm

    1. Austin Slater (R) CF
    2. Wilmer Flores (R) 2B
    3. Brandon Belt (L) 1B
    4. Evan Longoria (R) DH
    5. J.D. Davis (R) 3B
    6. Mike Yastrzemski (L) RF
    7. Thairo Estrada (R) SS
    8. Austin Wynns (R) C
    9. Luis Gonzalez (L) LF

    P: Jaob Junis (R)

  12. willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:08 pm

    flav’s 8:41 is spot on. Gain a game on Pads, once a week. 6 weeks of that, you done.
    reminds me of 2010.

  13. willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:11 pm

    Junis is better SP than Manaea too

    • willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:24 pm

      Gotta get ball down.

  14. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:30 pm

    Wow. Read a tweet about Hader’s meltdown last night, and the Pads fans are all over Melvin like stink on shit.

    They are done with him as the manager. Granted it’s the Twitterati,and there’s always a very vocal subgroup of hate, but man, the fans are on Hader for being racist, Melvin for being a shitty manager and Machado for being me-first selfish asshole.

  15. Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:31 pm

    Yee Haw! Davis dinger.

    • djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:38 pm

      That was a nice little heist Z pulled off there.
      Wouldn’t shock me if he’s our starting 3B for a few years…

      • Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:45 pm

        Maybe one, I keep thinking they’re gonna slide Luciano over to 3B. But yes, it does look like a good move on Zaidi’s part. Is that 3 or 4 now since joining the Giants?

      • djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:49 pm

        3 in 21 AB…

      • Macdog said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:55 pm

        Still no HRs yet for Ruf with Mets, but he has gotten a couple of timely RBI hits.

      • Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:59 pm

        They should let Davis play every day just to see what the change of scenery does.

  16. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:44 pm

    Shit.

    • Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:47 pm

      Juuuusssst a lot outside.

    • djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:51 pm

      He should’ve fuckin said something…

      • djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:51 pm

        Or Kotter!

  17. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:46 pm

    And this one just for fun.

  18. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:49 pm

    Well, I guess it evens out. Manaea threw about 4 strikes that were called balls.

  19. Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:53 pm

    Oops there it is. Thank you Soto.

  20. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:53 pm

    Soto whifff!!!!!!

  21. djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:53 pm

    Soto!!!
    🤣🤣🤣

  22. Macdog said, on August 10, 2022 at 1:53 pm

    I’ll probably regret this . . .

    Soto-ooops!

    • Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 2:00 pm

      Beauty.

  23. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 2:10 pm

    Oh boy. Junis flirting with disaster.

  24. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 2:15 pm

    Terrible pitch there Junis. He[s getting ahead of everyone and just laying dead fish out there.

  25. Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 2:17 pm

    Are they letting him get his pitch count up today? Get him out of there.

  26. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 2:18 pm

    6 guys in a row get on.

    Hmmm, should i get someone loose?

  27. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 2:19 pm

    So much for that shutdown inning.

  28. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 2:34 pm

    So much for our add-on inning.

  29. djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 2:52 pm

    Possibly final AB as a Giant for BB9…

  30. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:20 pm

    Hey!!! Who’s your Padres?

  31. willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:20 pm

    Comeback trail. This one not over by longshot

  32. alleykat69 said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:24 pm

    Wynns with replacement rattles the Padres Defense for a hit and error as Yaz tied it up at 6-6!

  33. alleykat69 said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    Balk baby make them pay Gonzalez!

  34. alleykat69 said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:26 pm

    0-18 wow a walk looks good Luis!
    Screw it steal 2nd!

  35. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:28 pm

    Joc is due anything.

  36. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    Hey!! There you go. Joc for the lead.

  37. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:40 pm

    Not-so-Sterling Marte.

    • Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:42 pm

      Even less.

  38. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:45 pm

    So much for the shutdown inning. Again. All after 2 were out.

  39. Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:47 pm

    Dang, and its just the 6th inning.

  40. Flavor said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:48 pm

    And Z was like, “nah our bullpen is fine, no need to add at break”

  41. djloo27 said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:49 pm

    On radio, Flem says Giants bullpen problems are “acute”…

    • xoot said, on August 10, 2022 at 5:32 pm

      yeah, I heard that MD jargon while driving to the market. What’s wrong with ‘severe’?

  42. Macdog said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:52 pm

    Wouldn’t be a complete shitshow without the usual sloppy defense.

  43. alleykat69 said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    Gawd this BP sucks and the follies continue, just a pathetic bunch to watch..

  44. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:54 pm

    Jesus. This is the Keystone Kops game. 12 runs have scored on errors.

  45. Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:55 pm

    Maybe the plan is just to wear the Pads out.

  46. Macdog said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:56 pm

    Pads missed the extra point in the 3rd.

  47. alleykat69 said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:56 pm

    Keep on adding on Padres I want a platoon player pitching..

    • unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:57 pm

      I want to see Kapler come in to pitch.

  48. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:57 pm

    Wow. Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia.

  49. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 3:59 pm

    Pads bat around with 2 outs. Fuck this team. 2 inning ending grounders would have kept the lead. But no. 7 fucing runs.

  50. blade3colorado said, on August 10, 2022 at 4:11 pm

    John, did you ever play with the Internationals (or knew one of the band members, Stevie McGinnes or any other member)? They usually played at Ricky’s Swiss Chalet in Palo Alto?

    • unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 4:40 pm

      How about the Mentors? My friend in Wig Torture played with them a few times. As well as Faith No More.

      Il Duce of the Mentors was famously quoted a bunch of times by Tipper Gore for his insanely graphic sexual lyrics in the congressional music ratings bullshit.

      The issue that put John Denver and Frank Zappa on the same side of the spectrum. Rocky Mountain High was banned by some radio stations as (like 8 miles high before it) being a song about drugs.

      Derp.

    • xoot said, on August 10, 2022 at 5:44 pm

      Zappa showed up on KPFA radio back then to publicize his efforts. They played clips of his very effective testimony before congress and explored the issues. Then Zappa sat for a while discussing his career. He spoke at length about his admiration for and collaboration with the Russian-born refugee composer Nicolas Slonimsky, who wound up in LA. I don’t remember if the KPFA guy or Zappa brought the LP, but they played a long Slonimsky piece that incorporated a typewriter and a cat. iirc, one musician sat in a chair caressing the pet until it was time to pull the tail. I’m sure many animal-loving KPFA listeners were outraged. Hell, Tipper Gore was probably outraged. But it sounded fine.

    • Bozo said, on August 10, 2022 at 6:48 pm

      Not that I remember, Steve. I did some interviews and on air stuff for KFJC down that way, in the mid 80s the polka band played a theater in Palo Alto (Stanford maybe?) with Queen Ida at one show and Zazu Pitts at another, also opened for the Rocky Horror Picture show there one Halloween. We did play a place down that way with TDA in the 90s but can’t remember the name of the venue, it was more of a sit down kind of club. Played some parties with a few bands down south but really didn’t play much in the South Bay,

      • blade3colorado said, on August 10, 2022 at 8:35 pm

        They played mostly in the South Bay. Here’s a link . . . http://theinternationals.com/aboutus.php . . . Stevie is the first guy in the photo.

      • Bozo said, on August 11, 2022 at 3:47 am

        Ha, they sure look like a band I would have run into at some point. Maybe we did an Oktoberfest with them somewhere. This is a clip of our style of polka, I’m the drummer with the cowboy hat. From 85 to about 92 I played trumpet in the band (actually a cornet) after that I was the drummer until I moved to the OBX in 08.

      • blade3colorado said, on August 11, 2022 at 5:11 am

        This video is so cool! John, you were GREAT! Love it! By the by, watching this at 5am. lol

      • willedav said, on August 11, 2022 at 6:28 am

        wow that was awesome. Crowd pleasing band that’s for sure.

      • blade3colorado said, on August 11, 2022 at 7:03 am

        Flav, this needs to go on new thread – Bozo’s band is awesome!

      • Bozo said, on August 11, 2022 at 7:19 am

        Thanks, we did have us some fun with that band and it lasted longer than anything else I was in. I flew out to play their last show back in 2017, 85 – 17 was a pretty good run.

  51. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 4:34 pm

    Tell ya one thing, as teams go, the Padres aren’t that scary. They are inept on defense and their pitching is shakey at best

    • Flavor said, on August 10, 2022 at 7:25 pm

      wait till Tatis comes back. And they’ll add another big time SP that’s just how AJ rolls. He’s dynamic unlike our Gm who reminds me more of the Ficus plant that sits quietly in the corner of my office.

  52. willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 5:14 pm

    Thing is if you lose a game a week (or more) to Padres, even if they both play .500 ball, Giants could be done in month, or less.

  53. snarkk said, on August 10, 2022 at 5:45 pm

    I think most of us here thought the Pen was on fumes BEFORE the break, and needed a couple of new arms. They got that Rosenthal guy, he of 2-year off for injury, then traded his ass before he ever showed — a ghost sign and trade. Giants look now like about a 78 win team…

  54. unca_chuck said, on August 10, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Yeah, baffling they didn’t get arms when they were so taxed as it was.

  55. Flavor said, on August 10, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    lol watch this. Kinda reminds me of a young big flavor if I had been dreaming

  56. mrsprtdude said, on August 10, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Heavy sigh. So much for the series win. GRR

  57. Flavor said, on August 10, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    not sure about the context here but…..

    • willedav said, on August 10, 2022 at 9:54 pm

      Pads D has Kim who is really good, plus Machado and Profar. All have made good plays last 2 days and Grisham is D first CF. Only ? Is where they put Tatis. Probably best suited OF to avoid getting hurt.
