A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Boring Loss

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 31, 2023

Utterly forgettable game on many different levels.

But we needed a new thread……

We Like These Kids

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 30, 2023

I knew the Pirates were overrated but that was just too easy. Patty Bails sliding into fan favoritism. And Schmitt right behind him. FINALLY we have some young guys coming up. This team has trended away from boring and I couldn’t be more excited.

Memorial Day

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 29, 2023

Only 11 games today? How can it be Memorial Day and some teams aren’t playing? That’s a pretty big swing and a miss by MLB.

It’s 2023 and Rich Freaking Hill is starting today. How is that possible? He’s gotta be closing in on 50.

Back at home, we should make short work of the Pirates who I never thought were really any good this year despite their fast start.

Stacking W’s

Another day, another win…..

Did you guys see this? This was for the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP lol

Annihilation in Milwaukee

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 27, 2023

Don’t look now bitches, but at 8-2 for our last 10 we are the hottest team in the league. I missed a lot of the game, did Milwaukee really lead off Darin Ruf? Could they possibly be that bad?

Great match up today with Webby vs Burnsey

Bullpen Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 26, 2023

Great win using a lot of pitchers. Hopefully Wood gets his wish now and gets to go further than 5. I wonder if Kap set this up that way? We know Wood is tired of getting pulled early.

Wanna pitch longer? Pitch better.

Peralta doesn’t seem to be the same guy, let’s roast him.

Shake It Off

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 25, 2023

Expected a dud on get-a-way day and it delivered with a thud. We will be doing our typical opener bullshit today in Milwaukee though it appears that Webb is to follow because of his back? What’s an inning or two of an opener gonna do for Webb’s back?

I still play wordle every day and love it. 5-6 minutes max? I got the time.

Hey, speaking of Milwaukee (because that’s where the Kuiper’s are from) what’s everyone’s take on Glen Kuiper being fired for his use of the N word during a game a couple of weeks ago? I watched that clip several times and he clearly just fumbled his words into the worst possible word he could possibly say in the situation. I supported him getting fired because you just can’t have that happen. But let’s not forget that he went to the museum in the first place to honor the players there and to learn more about it. And he was clearly trying to say something positive about the experience of the museum.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say I feel bad for him cause I’ve always thought he was a pretty underwhelming announcer and he won’t be missed. But that word doesn’t come out of your mouth by accident. Although this was clearly an accident.


Winning Ways Continue

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 24, 2023

Get-a-Way day! After winning 9 of 10 get-a-way day kinda feels like a loss coming, right? Who knows those this team has been surprising us for a while now.

Conforto starting to do those things he needs to do so he can opt out at the end of the season……

Surprised I haven’t gotten an email from our ol’ pal Stix. If you’re reading this my man, check in, tell us how you’re doing and how you’re enjoying these games!


Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 23, 2023

Here’s the other thing to remember: While I think we are all 100% fine with not getting Correa, though we can all feel differently about the process, it’s comforting to know we have Schmitt to take over when Crawford gets hurt again or just rides off into the sunset at the end of this season.

Between adding Schmitt and Bailey our defense has improved exponentially and it’s hard not to notice the results in the win column.

Great Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 22, 2023

That was not only a good win but it was a fun one to listen to. I caught almost all of it on the radio and I must say Kuip has a renewed sense of enthusiasm in his voice. I don’t know if it’s that he has finally recovered from his throat issue or maybe he’s just sensing this is the twilight and he needs to go out with a bang. Who knows.

Now let’s shut Correa the hell down…..

Shut Out

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 21, 2023

Did not see any of the game. Looks like I didn’t miss much. I did catch Bailey’s first career hit on twitter. That’s cool for him. Our guys are starting to cobble together some god awful batting averages……

Mauling The Marlins

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 20, 2023

I know Alcantara hasn’t been the same this year as he was last year but that’s still a nice win against a stud pitcher.

Doubt Bailey is ready to hit at this level but this is a pretty lost season already so why not?

Preakness today. My pick is Blazing Sevens. I will be very surprised if Mage wins.


Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 18, 2023

I caught the end of that game on the radio. Dotel obviously on fumes pitching 3 straight days. But you know what? He got it done. And as much as we like to complain about him (and complain in general) he’s got 11 saves, 3rd in the majors.

Sweeping Philly is a legit accomplishment.

Desperately needed day off today.

Beating Philadelphia

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 17, 2023

I thought the Phillies would be better this year. Nice win over what should be a good team.

Maybe I’m not watching enough games this season but I still have no idea which Rogers is coming in when one of them gets called in.

We have extended our lead over the Rockies to 1.5 games.

Raized In Arizona

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 15, 2023

Giants took “a lazy Sunday afternoon” too literally yesterday. That was boring. They are now a half game off…..last place. I know he just returned but Crawford can only tote around this .162 BA for so long.

Is not being good enough worse than boring? Or is that the exact same thing?

Dynasty Over

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 13, 2023

That was kind of my worst fear unfolding. Klay thinking he still had “Game 6” in him and just ending up embarrassing himself. Game 6 was seven years ago. Tough decisions to make in the off season.

Kapler can’t keep trotting Stripless out there. He’s not even trying to manage if we see his dumbass on the mound again any time soon…..

This Is No John Bowker

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 12, 2023

I’m a Casey believer. Top 50 pick. Won a gold glove in the minors. Crushes the ball 443. This is no Bowker Gang member. Sure, the league will adjust but I think he’s gonna be fine. We got ourselves a homegrown bat, gents. FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!

We Got A Game 6

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 11, 2023

Draymond was on fire last night. And some how still only accumulated 3 fouls. That was the intensity they needed to bring to win that game and force all the pressure on to LA. I still don’t think they can pull this off, they’re not young and spry enough to keep that intensity going for 2 more straight games. And our true young guys just aren’t good enough.

Cobb Salad in Arizona today. Kinda feels like his stuff wouldn’t play too well in the Arizona climate (low humidity) but maybe I’m wrong and he dominates there. I can’t remember him pitching there and I’m not gonna look it up.

A Long Long Time Ago….

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 10, 2023

Came across this cool pic of Candlestick 2 weeks before it opened on April 12th 1960.

Lotta pressure on Klay tonight. He can’t keep shooting us out of games. He can’t keep thinking he’s the same guy he used to be. And it’s on Kerr to manage this. If he’s brick laying Kerr has to either get him out of there or tell him to stop shooting.

Monday Night Meltdown

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 9, 2023

Lots of ugly in the Bay Area last night. Disco gets credit for not panicking but the game was over after the first inning. It’s too bad as Washington is not exactly offering up a Murderers Row of hitters.

And then The Warriors. The sad reality must be accepted. Championship DNA cannot overcome Father Time. Life’s clock is undefeated, gents.

Winning Streak Ends

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 8, 2023

This is mostly for Loo. Can you imagine what this would have felt like? These are Mage’s owners…..

I’d like to propose a sequel. “Stripless in San Francisco”.

Make it so, Zaidi…….

Finally, Happy 64th to the GREAT Ronnie Lott.

On A Roll!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 7, 2023

We are really playing some good baseball lately. And, while still closer to last place than first place we had to start somewhere to dig ourselves out of that hole. Might as well start with playing some good baseball.

Congrats to LOO for nailing the Derby winner! I did not have Mage. I couldn’t get past his lack of experience, an angle that works far more often than not when it comes to finding the Derby winner. But Mage is making me re-think that rule.

Derrrrrrrby Day

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 6, 2023

Solid win vs Brew Crew.

Bigger and more important things happening today in Kentucky. Aye?

I’m excited about this Derby as I see it as one of the most competitive one we’ve seen in years. Forte will probably go favored and he could certainly win but I don’t see him faster than at least 7 or 8 others.

Corn on Cobb Day.

Whole Bunch Of Good Stuff

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 5, 2023

Finally back home, get the Brew Crew who is coming in from Sherpa Town–that’s advantage us at least for Game 1.

Dubs make an adjustment or two, whatever the hell that means, and boom we back on the beam.

Derby weekend is upon us gentlemen, the greatest of all the weekends. I asked Sabean’s son’s girlfriend who she liked in the Derby and she had no idea what the Derby is. 26 years old. I didn’t think it was possible to not know what the Derby is. I told her to guess. She paused, smiled and said “Bike….race?”

Anyway, Happy Oaks Day!

Great Series Win

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 4, 2023

Another solid pitching performance. In a world of stupid openers and piggybackers, I appreciate the solid starting job. And we even added on to a lead something we usually give up weakly. Going into Houston and winning 2 of 3 was very impressive.

Dubon came up ant-small after his stupid, misguided comments.

Win And A Loss

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 3, 2023

Can Disco, Cobb and Webb get us to around .500 at the Break? That’s the key for me. If they can maybe Zaidi has a leash to do a few deals. That’s about the best we can hope for this year, I think.

Not sure where Dubs go from here. If they don’t have an answer for AD this is over.

Tired Group

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 2, 2023

LOL, they were gone two days.

And San Diego didn’t seem to have any problem waxing the Reds last night.

Outside of pro golfers, baseball players have to be the softest group.

Hey, at least Stevenson arrived in time to save the day.

Stevenson? Yeah, the guy who we bought from the A’s. THE OAKLAND A’S! Farhan is just not

a serious GM…….

Good Riddance, Mexico

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 1, 2023

That place is stupid.

And you can bet your bottom dollar there’s gonna be a hangover today in Houston as they struggle to adjust to the dramatic climate change.

If our bullpen is going to continue to implode we are going to need a better offense.
Love what we’ve seen from Haniger so far…….
