Re: Giants and 49ers Game recaps of the 2015 season


September 24,2015

Giants stare down SD and Ump but come up short 5-4 again.

The Giants lost but the 23 second stare down between Bum and Country Joe West the HP Ump was well worth the price of admission. Classic Josey Wales stuff. Check your guns in at the bar [sign in to see URL] hee

Bum and Craw who hit his 20th HR players of the game for Giants.

8 [sign in to see URL] running out but maybe there can be a gun fight at AT&T between Bum and Joe West near the end of the season.

I would pay to see that.

It sure has been a hellava [sign in to see URL] for sure.

Go Giants !!

[sign in to see URL] star is [sign in to see URL] win 14-10 over A's


Baseball is a game of stories throughout the year and sometimes all the hype over a certain story can turn into a story within the story.

Today was billed as the story of two vets at the end of their pitching careers getting together for a proper sendoff in front of loving friends, family,and longtime [sign in to see URL] Zito and Tim Hudson two of the classiest pitchers ever to toe the rubber faced each other and were gone before anyone finished their first beer and dog but the love was thick in the air with good feelings all around from both sides of the Bay. Both men left to standing ovations and then a slug fest broke out.

Who in the hell is Jarrett Paul Parker? Most in attendance and watching on T.V. must be wondering.A New Years Day baby in 1989 the 26 yr old Rookie made a loud noise in baseball today by smacking 3 HR's including a Slam on his way to a 7 RBI [sign in to see URL] 6'4" kid from Stafford Virginia who went to the College of Virginia is the first Giant to hit 3 HR's and have 7 RBI's in a game since the greatest player of all time Willie Mays did it in 1961.

I got a chance to witness AC/DC last night and saw greatness. Today in a Thunderstruck moment this young Rookie Wonder Boy hit the MLB scene in a big way and now has 5 HR's in his last 9 AB's. On New Years Day 1989 the Baseball Gods reached down and put Thunder and Lightning into a baby boy's hands and wrists in Virginia. A star is born and a new story is born in the greatest game of all Baseball. Welcome to the Bigs kid the spotlight is yours. Rock On !!

Go Giants !!

Giants hold on 5-4 and win 5 out of 6 vs. Oakland this year

Well with all the injuries and bullshit this year the Giants have taken the West down to the final week which is a great accomplishment from Pence going down in the spring to 4 player concussions at the same time here in September.

Plenty of fight left as the Dodgers come to town 6 up with 7 to play. Hey it's all about making those bastards sweat. If they can take out Grienke and Kershaw the firat two games of this series AT&T Park will get louder and louder.

Seeing the emergence of players like Duffy 3B,Craw 20 HR's,Tomlinson,Parker, Osich,Strickland,Brown Williamson and Heston has to be a real positive going forward. The Byrdman added some thump. Next year is 2016 and the Giants have this thing about even years.

It sure would be cool to say [sign in to see URL] you to the boys in blue this next 4 games. It's not over till it's [sign in to see URL] guy named Yogi once said that.

[sign in to see URL] L.A.

Go Giants !!

Mission #1 Complete as Giants Beat L.A. 3-2 in 12 innings


Who said the Giants did not make the [sign in to see URL] felt,and smelled like the playoffs as the Band of [sign in to see URL] ..whatever you want to call them won't go away. With all the disappointments and injuries the Giants will fight you till their last [sign in to see URL] right man took the mound as Alabama 22 Jake Peavy had his game face on once again against Greinke the probable Cy Young winner. You wonder where Peavy gets that fight [sign in to see URL] it is from his grandpa who taught him the song Poncho and Lefty as a 19yr old coming into his own. Jake threw his heart out tonight going 7 innings giving up 1 ER on only 3 hits. Jake is the player of the game in the biggest game of the year so far.

Brown was huge behind the dish going all the way all 12 innings and doubling in the Giants first 2 runs. Tomlinson was brilliant playing defense at 2nd base and had a key hit in the 12th to set up the winning sac fly by De Aza.

Lopez was huge getting Seager with two outs and two on late. Strickland got a big DP ball and is showing his importance to the bullpen.

Everyone contributed in a game the team had to [sign in to see URL] Giants are now 7-0 this year at home vs. L.A. which has kept them in this race the whole year. It's one foot in front of the other until you are walking through the door.

Backs against the wall as Josey Wales loads his gun tonight looking for Kershaw out on the range.

Tonight Alabama 22 came through and you might find him in a hallway somewhere singing Poncho and Lefty with the Flan Man.

The playoffs have begun and it's one game at a time. On this night we got to see one of the best games of the year.

BEAT L.A. !

Go Giants !!

Notes on 49ers...

49ers have not learned. Kap is not a pocket passer and will never be a pocket passer. He was made for the pistol [sign in to see URL] needs to be in the shotgun with Hyde by his side running draws and traps. Kap should be outside the pocket 75% of the time putting pressure on the defense to come after him or lay back. The 49ers continue to play like lambs instead of Lions. Until they attack and not be afraid of Kap being injured the season will be lost. Kap should be running for 60-70 yards per game and shove his speed and talent up the opposing teams ass's. Pussy football is losing football.

Guys like V. Davis and Boldin need to step up and get open and do something. Getting Kap outside the pocket will make linebackers respect t him and take heat off Davis and Boldin in the middle of the field.

Put Kap in the Pistol and let him do his thing.

With Hyde carrying the rock and Kap outside causing hell the offense would open up.

Go 49ers !!

Ballz out or [sign in to see URL] go [sign in to see URL] far what they have done is not working. Kap is a wild mustang and mustangs must run free.

Dodgers clinch Western Division behind Kershaw 1 hitter 8-0

Well the Dodgers won the West fair and square with props to Kershaw and his dominating performance tonight. Boo Hoo !

Go Cubs !

As for the Giants they played with Hungry Hearts all year trying to overcome a [sign in to see URL] schedule especially those two bullshit 10 game Eastern swings . The injuries mounted but the Giants must take the blame for not being able to beat teams like Arizona and Colorado in their own division. It's important though to remember that no NL team has repeated as WS Champions since the 1975 [sign in to see URL] years ago. Repeating is a tough chore and Spring Training will be here sooner than later when 2016 rolls around. Young players stepped up and there will be money to spend this winter bringing in some good pitchers (or there will be hell to pay). These players have huge hearts and will be ready to ride next year. Hey I feel good about this team and the team character we have. Bright days are ahead as the Band of Brothers reload in these [sign in to see URL] Francisco Glory Days.

A solid effort and props to Bochy and his coaching staff for busting their ass's to keep this team close all year.

Proud of the whole team. Proud to be a Giants [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] we go !

Go Giants !!

Happy Birthday to the Flan Man.

Two Cowboys calling it a career and what careers they had

Being a baseball player is a little like being a Cowboy. You ride all night and sleep most of the day. The ride starts in Spring Training and goes until October and if you are fortunate the ride goes until November. During the Winter you have to condition yourself for those hot summer months. They call it the "Grind" and it really is. 162 games and only the strong survive. Some are gamblers,some are gunslingers, and theyn there are the Cowboys who bring the cattle in on time ..don't ever complain and always give their very best and usually have a good woman by their side.

Tim Hudson and Jeremy Affeldt have been the best of the best Cowboys to come along in the last 20 years. Both good family men who have battled and battled moving from place to place and eventually ended up together in San Francisco as teammates to end their careers. Both got to share a special moment as Champions in 2014 and Affeldt ended up one of the Core 4 in the Bullpen part of teh Dynasty that will live forever.

Huddy has been a great friend to all in that Giants clubhouse especially to Bumgarner. Huddy has passed on some Wisdom that helped Bum last year and I am sure passed on some nice little nuggets to help a lot of those pitchers. Affeldt has been close to Cain and Affeldt showed some real genuine emotion talking about how Cain is closer than a brother to him.

That is what the great ones take from the game. Those special relationships with guys that end up like brothers over this thing called the grind. It's hard to duplicate hanging with the boys for all those months as everyone has to have everyone elses backs to really be successful.

Both of these Cowboys have done their own thing and their dreams have come true. They made it threw the grind and made it out as Champions. Both men have good heads on their shoulders and if Affeldt can stay away from frozen burgers and knifes everything gonna be just fine.

Two great [sign in to see URL] great [sign in to see URL] great Giants.

Time to hitch up those family wagons and live the good life. Both of them are on their way. The next part of their lives should be a hellava ride.

I wish them the very best. May both of them ride with the wind at their backs. Thanks for bringing in the cattle right on time.

Go Giants !!

Re: Giants and 49ers Game recaps of the 2015 season


Willie Mac Award


Tonight is a special night in the SF Giants family. Former winners of the Willie Mac Award will be in the house in respect for Willie McCovey and the Giants Organization. It will be good to see one of my childhood hero's Jack Clark who was the very first Willie Mac Award winner back in SF throwing out the first pitch.

It's a real hard decision this year. Since 2010 the start of the Dynasty it has been Torres,Vogelsong,Posey,Pence ,and last years winner Bumgarner.

I started out really thinking Bum should win again but in the last week or so I have changed my vote. Don't get me wrong Bum certainly deserves to win again but there is this young kid who was the real story of 2015.

Matt Duffy along side of his brother Joe Panik went head to head all year until Panik went down to injury. I call them both the ice water twins for how they have responded since entering MLB and their composure last year through that memorable playoff [sign in to see URL] impressed me with his mad dash from 2nd base to score on a wild pitch in the playoiffs. His fire inside and his baseball instincts are on a high level.

He beat out Casey McGehee at 3rd Base and ended up one of the front front runners for Rookie of the Year. He worked hard ,kept his mouth shut,and just flat out busted his ass to win a spot as a starter for the World [sign in to see URL] that is not inspirational I don't know what is. I saw him pull out the scouting report book in the dugout and study the pitcher and try anything to get a edge.

Duffy was one of the few that stayed healthy all year and never begged out for a day off. He is a hungry player and it's those hungry players that hold a team [sign in to see URL] worked hard on his defense at 3rd base and turned himself into a legit player there.

He has inspired me to buy a Duffman costume for Halloween which I will wear proudly. Duffy has earned everything this year and is a Willie Mac type of guy. Hey this award can go to a lot of guys this year and they all would be very deserving. Yes it is a special group for sure.

My vote is for the Duffman who has overcome and has established himself as a solid pro in MLB.I can also see him as a Manager some day when his career as a player is over.

I raise my glass to the Duffman. Someone give him a beer and the Willie Mac Award.


Go Giants !!

A special night...

Duffy wins the Willie Mac Award and was very respectful in his speech . I really like how he thanksed everyone and when he [sign in to see URL] want to thank all my coaches for teaching me to play the game the right way.

His Dad was very proud of him and gave his son a huge hug. Picture of the night.

Congrats to the Duffman...


Everytime the former Willie Mac winners walk out from centerfield I get chills up my [sign in to see URL] Evans,Robby Thompson,Herndon,Manwearing,Dravecky and [sign in to see URL] Jack Clark.

Talk about a straight [sign in to see URL] the [sign in to see URL] Ripper. So honest and comes right at you guns blazing. He called the Dodgers "Pond Scum" on the Murph and Mac show and made my whole day.A great story teller and one of my favorites.

Jack [sign in to see URL] Clark !! Right on Man.

I wish he would come around more often. He [sign in to see URL] busts me up.

Go Giants !!

A Special Day...

Giants always go first class when honoring a player or having a celebration.

Nice sendoff for Huddy today with both family's by his side. Really impressed with Jake Peavy today and his words about Huddy. Alabama brothers [sign in to see URL] then goes out after all that emotion and continues to warm up and wins a [sign in to see URL] just two short years Alabama 22 has become one of my favorite Giants of all time. Man, he is not afraid to out there on the edge and let his feelings fly.

The season might be over but this season has turned into way more than just a game. Some real cool [sign in to see URL] going on out at the yard.

This last week or so is gonna be huge for these young players to see what it means to be a Giant and more importantly a man going through life. So much wisdom in the words being said at the mic. The team will grow more tight and ready for future fights together against it [sign in to see URL] out in [sign in to see URL] boys are coming for everyone and it's gonna be tough to stop them.

Affeldt gets his day tomorrow.

Go Giants !!
