    Roberts used different pen guys in Game 2, and they were ones on the hook for L, while Melvin’s guys held Dogs off. Didn’t realize that Suarez came out of Japan league (a rookie per B/R at age 31) and hadn’t pitched MLB before this year when Preller signed him.
    Could be deciding factor, which manager has better luck with pen going forward. Dogs seem to have more depth, but didn’t help last night.

    Soto look a little funky in OF?
    Had better night in field than Trea Turner did though.

    It’s gonna be absolutely insane in downtown San Diego this weekend.
    They drew well this year (Top 5 in MLB) and it was pretty wild down there this year for a mid week game against the Marlins. But for 2 playoff games—against the Dodgers on Friday and Saturday night? And now that they have landed a punch and turned this into a legit series???
    I might have to get down there at some point just to check out the atmosphere.

    Yeah I’m pulling for the Padres just like every other Flapper over the Dogpile San Dawg!.It should be wild in the Gaslight District this weekend! For a supposedly strong Dogpile BP it was the Padres BP that shined last night, especially the work by Suarez getting out of a 1st&3 rd no outs with a killer dogpile DP which was awesome 👏..
    Think the last time the Padres even won a playoff off game was with Bochy in 96? when they went to the W/S and lost.. BTW Fuck LA !!!

      For good luck, maybe the Pads should get Boch to throw out the first pitch.

    Good to see the Pads hold on. Game Three will be great. And Loo it is I that had first suggested the pursuit of Josh Bell. I think the Giants need an anchor at first base post Belt and we have nothing resembling that in our farm system. The colder numbers in SD may actually help to keep his price down.

    • djloo27 said, on October 13, 2022 at 11:26 am

      Yes GH you were quite adamant about him.
      Pretty sure he’d be a great pickup.
      Could never hate nice guy and Will Clark worshiper Kershaw.
      And Mattingly…

      • alleykat69 said, on October 13, 2022 at 12:12 pm

        Yeah Opie Will always have my respect as the only Dodger I could appreciate especially when his idol was Will Clark and insisted on wearing #22.
        HOF Jim Palmer rocked #22 for 19 years and was a bigtime playoff and W/S gamer imo.
        On the other spectrum sadly is Bill Buckner #22 who was a great hitter but will always be remembered for his gaffe against Mookie Wilson thru the 5 hole..

    Nothing but respect for Op. He’s 34 and can still get ML hitters out. ERA was 2.28 over 22 starts, FIP was 2.57, walks less than a batter a game and K’s almost 10, with fastball that tops out at what 92 maybe. Batters hit .206 off him in 126 innings worth and had lowest HR rate since 2016, in launch angle era no less.

    get him

  8. djloo27 said, on October 13, 2022 at 1:42 pm

    He’s opting out of 2 years at $35M/per.
    He’s fuckin nuts.
    Can’t see Giants getting involved for a SS at those numbers…

    • willedav said, on October 13, 2022 at 4:08 pm

      Exactly, and has overinflated sense of his own worth. He’s a Boras guy after a long term megabucks deal, likely with opt outs he negotiated with Twins so he could move on if unsatisfied where he’s at. I don’t think front end of deal for him will hold up after couple years at non hitters park like the O. Seems like type of player whose contract Giants were trying to get out of.

  9. alleykat69 said, on October 13, 2022 at 1:51 pm

    Why not go after Bogarts I’m sure he’s opting out and would be cheaper..

  10. Flavor said, on October 13, 2022 at 2:23 pm

    Correa can rake. I want dudes who can play every day and who can rake. That’s literally all I want.

  11. alleykat69 said, on October 13, 2022 at 2:44 pm

    Speaking of raking here we go again with Yordan Alvarez the Beast with another HR a 2 run shot to give the Stros a 3-2 lead after 6 innings..

  12. Winder said, on October 13, 2022 at 4:48 pm

    I am hoping the Pads can knock out the Dogs like most here. I can’t get myself to really feel it though. To me it’s like a Rams/ Cowboys game I hate them both and have for a long time but I still hate the Cowboys more.

  13. Winder said, on October 13, 2022 at 4:54 pm

    To be competitive next year Z is gonna have to spend. I don’t think he’s gonna go all out. I know our offensive production was pretty much crap but I still hope if he’s spends the big money he goes after pitching.

    Maybe I missed it, but haven’t seen any talk here about the new GM (Piluto? Pulito? Pilates?). Don’t know much about the guy, but Harris was a hologram as a GM, so maybe it doesn’t matter much. I guess I’m a traditionalist thinking that the GM is THE key management role, used to always know every team’s GM, until Harris who I wouldn’t have known if he bumped into me on the street. Will the new guy be more out front the way GMs normally are?, so Morocco Mole can do things behind the scenes. That sounded racist but didn’t mean it that way, I know Z isn’t from Morocco, but he always reminded me of someone and couldn’t think of who until I recently stumbled upon an old Secret Squirrel clip (don’t ask) and there he was, Morocco Mole….

    • willedav said, on October 13, 2022 at 7:27 pm

      mm I’d say Zaidi pulling the strings on any move. From what I read, him and Harris were close, but it was Zaidi calling him at 2 AM to have Harris look into under radar guys he was interested in, not the other way around.

    • alleykat69 said, on October 13, 2022 at 10:18 pm

      I’ve coined the Morocco Mole phrase many of times in the past P/A nobody really caught onto it as Farhan is a perfect version of Morocco Mole cartoon character are not.. Glad Loo posted a picture of him! Secret Squirrel /Morocco Mole along with Top Kat leader of the pack were 2 of my favorite cartoons as a kid..

      New GM Pauita,Paletó Planco whatever, does have Astros ties along with a connection supposedly with Correa if that means anything?That would be a good initial start with the fans if he can help mail down a superstar..

  15. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 13, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    I thought you might remember that guy….

    • Flavor said, on October 13, 2022 at 7:26 pm

      paul how’s your nutsack doing?
