anyways, the Giants lost to Bumgarner tonight because of course they did

the Dodgers also lost, so today was just another day but they are running out. nothing gained but also nothing lost

but they are running out *of time

Bee OK, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 07:01 (one year ago) link

this team is magic this year.

they were down four going into the 9th inning. D-backs removed their starting pitcher who was dominating and the Giants came back to win. oh yeah, someone named Kris Bryant starting the came back and scored the extra run in the 10th to win it.

Bee OK, Friday, 6 August 2021 01:55 (one year ago) link

I don’t understand how this team is doing it.

They were already halfway there last year, with a lineup hitting the snot out of the ball in the shortened season but lacked pitching/bullpen depth and Buster Posey.

Also, plate discipline. So much plate discipline.

octobeard, Friday, 6 August 2021 04:22 (one year ago) link

there is something special going on this year

the Giants are playing the Brewers and they have faced some of the best pitchers i have seen this year: Burnes, Woodruff and their bullpen. Giants were down by one in the ninth and somehow tied the score (it was unbelievable). in the 10th they scored three runs but the Brewers came back and scored three runs to tie the score, it was a gut punch but this is 2021. in the 11th the Giants scored four runs to finally end the game.

Kris Bryant 3-4

Yeah they are like perma locked in. The defensive flexibility and depth make them like a mesh network team. It's incredibly fun to watch, and it's reminiscent of the EYBS teams postseason play but all year.

games are getting more and more intense. not sure why the Mets manager took out Walker but this was not a good game by the Giants. the Giants needs five outs to get out of a bases loaded ninth but they did. i might say this was one of their flatter games but somehow still won.

one of the worst days in my life

after having the best record in baseball and being on top after more than 100 days it all come crashing down tonight

i feel the Giants need to win the division this year and that is more important than winning another World Series. in 2014, the Giants Won the World Series despite not winning the division, the Dodgers reign in the West needs to end and this year felt right

also this Texas, supreme court thing really bothers me

The only thing that would bring me down this year is if the Giants lose to the Dodgers in the postseason and/or the Bums win it all again.

This season is already found money (I mean they sit at 85 wins right now... a total that I would have considered amazing progress if they ended that way). They have a top 10 farm now. Tons of money coming off the books. Possibility of signing Bryant. Proven elite hitting can happen at 24 Willie Mays Plaza without the roids. I can go on. They should be competitive for some time now and the best Faidi years are still ahead. I don't see them pulling off a WS win this year since the starting pitching is completely unreliable outside of Webb, but they could get close.

Padres have had a classic case of "celebrating at half time" a la the Falcons in the Super Bowl and a ton of injuries. They can still sneak in and grab a Wild Card spot though. They remind me a bit of the 2nd half 2016 Giants but with 1000% more hubris. Until they win something that hubris will only hinder them. Perhaps they need to lose more before they truly can pull one out, a la the Dodgers.

octobeard, Friday, 3 September 2021 23:03 (eleven months ago) link

Speaking of - Dodgers are expected to win 100+, expected to win the division, expected to go deep and/or win it all.

Anything short of that is a satisfying dose of schadenfreude.

Heliot Ramos, who was called up earlier than most anticipated when bullpen arm John Brebbia went on the Bereavement List, started in left field and went 2 for 3 with two singles, a run scored and a strike out. It was a nice debut.

It was no surprise when the San Diego Padres expressed displeasure at Steven Duggar stealing second base with a nine-run lead Tuesday night, or when they were openly hostile to Mauricio Dubon after he laid down a bunt for a hit in the sixth inning, his team still up by nine. That's the way it's always been in baseball.

Major League Baseball for individual players is a game of survival,” said Kapler, a former player himself. “And Mauricio Dubón is depending upon his ability to be successful over a long period of time. He needs to use every tool at his disposal to be successful to stick at the major-league level, to demonstrate his value, to hone his craft. That doesn’t ebb and flow with the score. And it’s not just Mauricio. It’s Steven Duggar on the bases. It’s the pitcher on the mound. Everyone is competing on the baseball field. It doesn’t make any sense to have one part of the field stop competing and the other part keep competing.

Bee OK, Thursday, 14 April 2022 04:29 (three months ago) link

So there were fireworks in last night game as some unwritten rules were broken by the Giants. My thoughts are Dubón is probably gong to be cut when teams have to go back down to 26 players, is out of options and was doing nothing at the plate up until then. He just needed a base hit in the worst way. For me this was bullshit as it was bad sportsmanship. The Dugger stolen base to me was fine as there was still a lot of baseball to be played. Also according to Ken Rosenthal, teams have overcome 9-run deficits four times in the last decade. But he probably should not have done that either.

https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/giants/why-giants-mike-krukow-thinks-mlb-unwritten-rules-are-different-now

The new collective bargaining agreement between MLB and the MLBPA eliminated the Game 163 tiebreaker, and now a mathematical formula -- which includes run differential -- will be used to break end-of-season ties. Scoring matters, no matter how big a team’s lead is.

So yeah, this stuff is confusing.

Bee OK, Friday, 15 April 2022 21:49 (three months ago) link

that's also wrong, it should've been corrected as it was here: https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/padres-upset-at-giants-for-breaking-unwritten-rule-and-bunting-in-blowout/

CBS Sports incorrectly stated that run differential is one of the tiebreakers MLB will use instead of a Game 163 in the 2022 season in the initial version of this story. Run differential was discussed as a tiebreaker, but that rule did not make it into the new CBA. The five tiebreakers MLB is using this season are head-to-head record, intradivision record, interdivision record, last half of Intraleague games, and last half of Intraleague games plus one until the tie is broken. We apologize for the error.

https://www.sfgate.com/giants/article/arrogant-SF-Giants-are-ruining-baseball-by-trying-17126538.php?IPID=SFGate-HP-Editors-Picks

With a heavy heart, I must say: I’m not sure I can continue being a San Francisco Giants fan.

Yes, they look like contenders again. Sure, they have an intriguing, exciting roster of players. And yes, they’re winning lots of games.

But therein lies the problem – how are they winning those games? Unfortunately, the Giants seem to be under the impression that they can just score a bunch of runs, and then score even more runs later in the game, with absolutely no regard for the feelings of the opposing team.

Is that really the kind of team we want to root for? Shouldn’t we be fans of a team that tries to win the right way?

This past weekend’s series against the Washington Nationals provided a perfect example of the kind of team the Giants have unfortunately become. On Friday night, with a clearly insurmountable six-run lead in the ninth inning, Thairo Estrada had the unfettered audacity to try to steal second base and score on a base hit. Thankfully, he was thrown out at home before he could embarrass the Nationals any further, but what was he thinking? Would the Nationals really have scored seven runs in the ninth to win the game? Sure, the Giants scored seven runs in an inning earlier in the same game, but would it really have happened twice? No, statistically impossible.

Estrada’s actions rightfully drew the ire of Washington manager Dave Martinez, who called out Giants manager Gabe Kapler and his team for intentionally ignoring the delicate sensibilities of the Nationals players. But did the Giants learn their lesson? No.

On Sunday, after scoring five runs, the Giants — greedy as ever — simply couldn’t help themselves and went for more. Joc Pederson was at the plate in the seventh inning, having already homered earlier in the game. Decorum called for him to simply stand at the plate and not swing, since doing so would risk further humiliation for the Nationals; instead, he swung the bat and hit another home run.

Is that conduct becoming of a gentleman? I would venture to say it is the complete opposite. The rest of the Giants unfortunately decided to follow Pederson’s lead, adding on even more runs to win by a score of 12-3.

Obviously, the Giants haven’t stopped to consider just how scoring all of these runs might affect the feelings of their opponents. The Nationals, like the Padres a few weeks earlier, only wanted to come out and play a fun game of baseball, maybe have a few laughs, and then head home for the night. They didn’t expect to be thoroughly humiliated by a team that simply refused to stop playing hard after taking the lead. The Giants’ opponents are highly skilled, highly paid, grown adults. It’s high time Kapler and his players started to take that into account – by not trying, of course.

If the arrogant Giants aren’t going to stop competing for nine full innings, Major League Baseball should step in. It’s time to give other teams the option to forfeit a game once a deficit becomes too big to overcome. Let these teams save face, and save their bullpens, by allowing them to raise a white flag from the top step of their dugout. That way, they can avoid the embarrassment that comes from an opponent continuing to play the game of baseball.

For instance, how much better would Martinez and the Nationals have felt if they had been allowed to raise the white flag after the Giants scored their insurmountable fifth run on Sunday? Sure, the game wouldn’t have even lasted five full innings, but that's not the point. The point is the Nationals could’ve lost with dignity by losing more quickly. They’d have lower ERAs on their pitching staff, and they wouldn’t have had to suffer the indignity of watching Pederson’s home run trot a second time. It’s only fair.

Regrettably, baseball is too set in its ways to ever embrace this kind of radical change. So it’s going to be up to teams like the Giants to police themselves, adhere to the unwritten rules, and stop playing so damn hard all the time.

But it may be too late for me, and thousands of Giants fans like me, who can’t in good conscience continue to root for a team that refuses to take the feelings of the opposition into account. Please, Giants, I’m begging you: play the game the right way. The unwritten rules are there for a reason. Let’s start being gentlemanly and adhere to them.

And if Dave Martinez happens to be reading this, I profoundly apologize on behalf of all San Francisco fans for the utterly disgusting way the Giants swept your team. I can’t imagine what you’re going through. Stay strong.

Dave Tobener (@gggiants on Twitter) is a lifelong Giants fan whose family has had season tickets for over 30 years. He’s been lucky enough to never miss a World Series game in the City in his lifetime, still isn’t completely over 2002 and lives and dies with the Giants every year.

I love baseball, but I probably "love music more.”

Really? More than baseball?

“Baseball is like sort of my blood,” the 2021 Manager of the Year said. “It’s what I know best. It’s what is the most influential thing in my life. But that pure love is probably music. And that’s from my mom and my dad.”

Always unprompted, Kapler will open press conferences by giving music takes or updates on what he’s been listening to. In spring training, he recommended Vince Staples and Billie Eilish’s “fiery collab.” When Farhan Zaidi walked into the dugout for his season-opening press conference, Kapler played a Mac Miller song from his iPhone for walk-up music.

Before games, players walk into the clubhouse to hear music spilling out of Kapler’s office — R&B, jazz, and most often hip-hop. During them, he notices everyone’s walk-up songs. Background music plays in his head subconsciously like a movie score. He shares artists with his players and uses music as a device to connect with his sons.

two weeks pass...

https://www.sfgate.com/giants/article/Gabe-Kapler-says-he-regrets-not-kneeling-17204164.php

San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler told reporters on Friday that he won't come out of the dugout for the national anthem before games until he "feel(s) better" about the "direction of our country."

This decision comes in the wake of a self-published introspective blog on his website in which he expressed shame that he did not kneel for the national anthem in the wake of Tuesday’s mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

In the post, he called out some of the circumstances that led to the shooting, including the shooter’s ability to purchase assault rifles and ammunition for his crime, the inaction of police officers as parents pleaded with them to do something, and the callous response from some politicians.

But Kapler then looked at himself on Wednesday during the national anthem and called himself a “coward” for not kneeling during the anthem because his dad taught him when he was younger to not stand for the anthem if he believed the anthem wasn’t “representing us well right now.”

“I wish I hadn’t let my discomfort compromise my integrity,” Kapler wrote. “I wish that I could have demonstrated what I learned from my dad, that when you’re dissatisfied with your country, you let it be known through protest. The home of the brave should encourage this.”

The Giants held a moment of silence prior to Wednesday’s game against the New York Mets at Oracle Park for the victims of the shooting. The Golden State Warriors were another Bay Area organization that held a moment of silence for the victims, but they also explicitly advocated for “sensible gun laws.”

Surprised to come in here and not see the highlight of him kicking a bat and hitting Estrada in the knee

This team is in freefall. Hate to see it.

The worst thing that could have happened is another fluky contending season that prevented them from trading Joc and Rodon for young guys.

Ball was hit up the middle, kicked off his foot, bounced up, natural movements led to ball landing in glove.
