Damn I couldn’t even pretend to be this bad (Die hard Mets fans from queens fan since ‘87)


nobreadforme

This is all my fault. Placed my first bet on the Giants this season. DeScalfani over 4 strikeouts, Giants get the W, and Austin Slater & Yaz to each get a hit. Dead bet by inning 3. I’m so sorry. I cost us this win.


oliviamrow

welp, been a pleasure hanging out with y'all even if the game wasn't so great. fuck gabe morales and let's refill our bottles of hopium for tuesday!


Valenderio

Hopium 🥹


ITrulyResentThis

David Bell seems to really relish opportunities to get tossed


oliviamrow

maybe he's trying to catch up to TLR in ejections


mvstateU

I'd like to think Red's manager was sticking up for Belt and the shitty calls against him.


jeebsjay

Getting ejected up by 7 fuck the reds and their shit ass existence


No_Bandicoot2306

David Bell: "I've got dinner reservations and you Damn Giants can't get any of us out. Peace."


gbassman5

Come on, Giants; you owe us a late-inning cocktease run or two


plvntra

I wish my down 7 manager was half as mad as that up 7 manager. Maybe the analytics on a manager getting ejected down 7 are bad?


banished-to-the-pen

If Mercedes hits a bomb I’ll consider today a W


lepetitbanan

Is this really a pitch worth getting sent out Reds' coach? Kapler should've been exiled to Alcatraz by now


sfan27

Maybe he just wanted to get into the clubhouse A/C ahead of the rest of the team?


FishGoSploosh

Chill tf out you’re up seven


DemonicPanda11

Lol bro the umps gifted you how many runs today? Sit the fuck down 😂


gbassman5

Ok, I'm one of the guys who wishes Kap would get fired up and yell at the umps some, but that was fucking ridiculous


park7911

It’s been an absolutely shit zone. Not surprised someone got tossed


_noncomposmentis

Very surprised it was David Bell in the 9th inning though


meatintubef0rm

You’re up by seven dude, how fucking stupid can you be?


hemibreve

Bro you have a massive lead in part due to umpire fuckery calm down lol


ccastro425

Catching up on the game after work and just hit the third inning…I have no words.


patsj5

Another noncompetitive appearance for Disco. That 9.95 ERA is pretty ugly, and it has gone up every start. Can't figure out why he is the only pitcher Farhan gave a multiple year deal.


Lancealotong

Alright if we come back ill donate 50 bucks to the Giants community fund


JoJoMcDerp

John Brebbia 100% churns his own butter.


sfan27

I guess he's right that it was a ball, but how the hell does he know from his angle.


Amazben

Damn. David Bell was angry….


oliviamrow

I missed it 'cause I was on the phone, what was it about?


Amazben

He was pissed about some of the called third strikes. Got tossed and then lost his damn mind. But the pitch that triggered that mindmelt was really not bad at all, barely outside


oliviamrow

Yeesh. Especially given that third inning lmao


Amazben

Right?! Like, David Bell, sir, your team was gifted stuff by the umps all series long! Cool your jets


banished-to-the-pen

Shoutout to whomever has given me like 4 different awards today lol it has been a pleasure


_noncomposmentis

What kind of idiot gets tossed while UP BY SEVEN RUNS?!?!??!?!!


Dillymac25

That Tovala is just a toaster oven, gonna collect dust like the wife’s air fryer


TheKid2455

It's actually pretty great if you're okay with cooking one meal at a time. Their meals are good.


ITrulyResentThis

Brebbia looking like a 19th century tug boat captain


banished-to-the-pen

Lmao Reds manager arguing with the ump during a blowout like wtf bro chill


_noncomposmentis

Pfft... that's against the unwritten rules, man


sfan27

FULBOAM!


Dillymac25

Xpecting 8 solo bombs right here


sfan27

Watch, they get 6 and then a deep fly-out to lose the game...


hunterpantz

It doesn’t get more SF


MinorThreatCJB

Pain. We really lost a series to the fucking reds


wileye11

*another series to the reds

Double pain

ccastro425

No more Disco pls


patsj5

I feel pretty good about the bullpen today other than Garcia giving up 3 2-strike hits.


tarallelegram

garcia's regression has been coming for awhile now


doggybadgerguy

The bullpen for whatever reason always seems to do well when they pitch most of the game.


oliviamrow

Just got off the phone with...some part of the Giants org, I guess. I'm gonna be the proud owner of Luis González's Pride Day patch! (Just the patch, so I'll have to get a jersey to affix it to, if I can do so without disrupting the authenticity tag!) 🧡🖤 tagging u/ThiccMaryMagdalene to see when they're off work :D


ThiccMaryMagdalene

WHAAAAAAAAAT OH HELL YEAH ….debating on whether to bid on the hat


oliviamrow

Go for it! i absolutely would if i hadn't just spent a bunch of money on other dumb stuff!


banished-to-the-pen

How did this come about?? Awesome!


oliviamrow

They have an inventory (literally just a spreadsheet) of game-used items available-- balls, jerseys, all kinds of stuff. When I couldn't afford anything at the charity auctions I took a look. From there you just send 'em an email with what you want (you can also request stuff?) and if they have it they call you back, you give 'em shipping and billing info over the phone, and they send it along, apparently! https://www.mlb.com/giants/fans/auction


sfan27

They took the patch off of the jersey and sold/raffled/wahtever it separately?


El_Rey_de_Spices

/u/oliviamrow is just throwing out a comment for the sake of plausible deniability. Truth it, she totes stole the patch *right off the jersey itself!*


oliviamrow

EXCUSE ME THAT IS INDECENT EXPOSURE lmaoooo


El_Rey_de_Spices

lol, indecent exposure?! I said you stole the patch off the jersey, not the jersey off of González!


oliviamrow

it was supposed to mean you exposed me, but i guess it didn't quite land, haha *~~^(oh no now i have jersey-less lugo in my head, send help)~~*


El_Rey_de_Spices

> oh no now i have jersey-less lugo in my head, send help Bwahaha, my ulterior motives were successful!


ThiccMaryMagdalene

LMFAO


oliviamrow

you utter *fiend* lol


oliviamrow

I guess so - i know some players' jersey *with* patch are part of the community fund auctions, but a bunch of just-patches were listed on the ["From the Clubhouse](https://www.mlb.com/giants/fans/auction)" inventory. So I sent in the email request yesterday and just got the call back!


Lil-pants

Wow I might just do this so I don’t have to spend $1000 just for a pride patch jersey


Lil-pants

That’s so cool!!


Amazben

Yaaaay! Congrats!! That is awesome!!


El_Rey_de_Spices

Hey, that's super neat! Very nice!


badsamaritan_54

Maybe we’re throwing to get on good terms for trading


ITrulyResentThis

I can’t believe that happened to Slater of all people twice


m1ma

Why are we playing like we’re the worst team in the MLB?..smh


tarallelegram

slater, you're hurting my feelings


sfan27

Today is clearly cursed. Slater is a great defender and missed two catchable balls.


Amazben

Stupid sun


El_Rey_de_Spices

*The sun is a deadly laser*


_noncomposmentis

Mr Burns had the right idea all along


Amazben

At least for this game!!


doggybadgerguy

Could've been a bullpen game and we probably would still kinda be in this one Could say that for like almost every single Disco start this year too


Dillymac25

Votto is my favorite non Giant player


Amazben

He’s a gem: yelling “fuck” so loud you can hear it on the broadcast to dancing in TikToks with kids


jshxvii

I would love to see the giants make the playoffs but not like this. This team isn’t deserving of going to the postseason. Let the contracts expire and start spending in 2023.


tarallelegram

they should 100% only start to spend once the core of the team is young


jshxvii

No, or else the giants are going to be waiting a long time for the players to fully develop. Heck, the Phillies 1st round Appel barely made his debut this week and he got drafted long long time ago. Go the LA Rams route and spend money on proven players.


[deleted]

[удалено]


jshxvii

Farhan doesn’t even believe in his own farm systems. He keeps trading for other teams rejects. Our “promising” catcher is back in triple A, Ramos is still a question mark. Plus 2023 and 2024 will have young free agents worth the money. With Crawford on the decline, giants can after go trea turner or Correa.


Amazben

Buh bye Pham! Phuck off back to Cincy


jase_zed

I have just got to work and looked at the score. I'm offering a single Yike


JoJoMcDerp

june 26 2022, the day the giants smashed an mlb record by hitting 7 consecutive home runs.


_noncomposmentis

The Brebbia has blessed this mess


sfan27

Our lord and savior John Fulboam Brebbia


_noncomposmentis

Praise be


_noncomposmentis

No joke a fanny pack full of garlic fries is brilliant


El_Rey_de_Spices

That's a big brain move


sfan27

Cole is a smart cookie


sfan27

Fulboam? I guess with an off-day (and another Thursday ) they don't really need to use a position player.


JohnsSweater

Yerminator for pitcher


Amazben

Ah, I was hoping the same


5ysdoa

I was going to come in and go on and on about disco and how we shouldn't still have him but the third inning was pretty much 1st base umpire and our defense. Disco still shouldn't be here, I'd rather our guys were swinging against him, but it doesn't look like anyone wants to play today. Smh


doggybadgerguy

It definitely wasn't just Disco but it's not like he was giving up weak contact. Bro was getting absolutely fucking shelled and only lasted 2.2 ip. And when your ERA gets above 9 the excuses don't really work anymore. Entire team does look kinda dead tho


tarallelegram

today was definitely on the pitching and defense, yeah. once you put the offense in a 10-1 hole, you kind of lose the excuse to blame them.


El_Rey_de_Spices

Now's the time for the Giants to discover some super niche MLB rule, like "If a home run lands directly in a fan's beer, causing a seal rather than exploding the cup, the home run is worth ten runs."


plvntra

"It's in the ground rules. You guys didn't read the ground rules?"


banished-to-the-pen

Jon Miller is going on a wild tangent on radio and has me questioning what year it is


sfan27

Award game is strong with this comment.


El_Rey_de_Spices

Like everyone else, I'mma need a clip of that audio, lol


Amazben

What’s he saying??


oliviamrow

aw, missed it. what was it about?


banished-to-the-pen

He was talking about the last time a team threw no hitters on consecutive days (bc of the Astros-Yankees series) It was between the White Sox and the St Louis Browns(?) who then became the Orioles. And then he went and started talking about Johnny Vandermeer (a Reds pitcher who is the only one to pitch back-to-back no hitters) and then how Red Barber (old time sports broadcaster for the Reds) used to re-enact the final outs of the no hitters to live crowds I got lost in it lol it was great


oliviamrow

ahhh haha. that's awesome!


meatintubef0rm

…quotes?


ufotheater

Sure this game will end, but how will I remove the stain from my soul


Amazben

Alcohol? Kills germs and bad memories


El_Rey_de_Spices

Rubbing alcohol for outside wounds, drinking alcohol for inside wounds.


Amazben

This is the way.

I grew up in San Martin, now I’m hoping San Martin goes down!


awdvhn

I fell asleep for a bit and literally dreamt of a 9 run 9th. It is foretold.


lepetitbanan

Putting the oracle in the park


tarallelegram

remember when the reds blew a seven run lead in two innings? great times


_noncomposmentis

Please throw 36 more balls in a row


doggybadgerguy

It's funny how Long was never used as an actual starter this year and yet his starts are still 100x better than Disco's


oliviamrow

random thought from someone who's only been following baseball *closely* for a couple of years. have any teams tried to field an all-bullpen team? instead of relying on ~5 starters in rotation, ~2 guys who can soak up 2-3 innings, and the rest 1-inning guys, just get 13 guys who can pitch 1-2 most days? from a marketing perspective i can see how that wouldn't be a great approach (it helps to have some individuals fans can get excited about), but it would hypothetically make a team struggle less when there are a couple of injuries. But maybe it makes no sense strategically, or mechanically? I don't know enough to know what I don't know here. XD


imp_etus

mechanically: bullpen guys don't throw that often. tyler rogers has 34 appearances through 71 games, doval has 32 through 71, and so on. you just don't get enough production from bullpen guys to justify that, and if you have a pitcher with that stamina... well, why not make him a starter / long innings guy? strategically: a bullpen guy who's hot will give you a good inning or two in a lot of games, but a starter who's hot can give you a (really good opportunity at a) win every 5th. like, 7 innings 1-2 runs and so long as your team has *average* run support that day you're probs winning it (barring a bullpen collapse) edit: lol well you can still Cain your pitcher & give them 0 run support


TheKid2455

Not to my knowledge. It's not impossible, but teams usually only try something new if someone else has tried it successfully first.


oliviamrow

Fair enough. Not like I'd want us to lose our good starters either!


MadRoboticist

You would need more than the 13 pitcher staff to pull that off. Relievers just don't throw nearly as many innings as starters do.


oliviamrow

But you'd only need 9 to get through most games at 1 inning each, in theory, so most days 3-4 would get a break, no? (Seriously, sorry if this is a ridiculous question!)


MadRoboticist

There are 1458 innings (at least) a year; that's 112 innings per reliever. Most relievers throw like 40 to maybe 80 innings a year. So you'd be putting a ton of extra stress on their arms so I doubt it would be sustainable. I don't think rotating them would work. What happens if a few guys have an off day or the game goes into extras. Suddenly your whole staff has to work two days in a row and then your rest schedule is just completely broken. Additionally, a lot of relievers rely on not being seen frequently to be effective, so that's also out the window now.


oliviamrow

Wow. Okay, when you put it that way, it definitely makes no sense, haha. Thank you!


gbassman5

Finally, a shutdown inning!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Amazben

I really like when both Slater and Yaz are in the outfield. They cover a lot of ground


tarallelegram

bring in bryce johnson and we'll have the best defensive outfield in the league aside from the braves


Amazben

Oooo I like this! But I also want LWJ and LuGo and Joc playing. How do we reconcile all of these things??


tarallelegram

someone smarter than me needs to figure that out


Amazben

LWJ and Belt take turns at first, LuGo & Joc alt between DH & LF?


tarallelegram

and dfa ruf to even up the playing time imo. his bat doesn't compensate for how inflexible he is on defense and that's been hurting the team for awhile now. (i'd rather have blet/lwj at first)


Amazben

I had really hoped that this would be Ruf's year, but you're right, we have better defensive players. I feel sad :(


menusettingsgeneral

Pretty embarrassing effort at home. Disco should not have been re-signed.


_noncomposmentis

The Giants are better when they have a pudgy corner infielder


Amazben

Awww! Did you see Pablo take out that catcher the other day? That was nuts


gbassman5

Surprised that one hung up long enough for Yaz to catch


tarallelegram

kyle schwarber in june is basically barry bonds


El_Rey_de_Spices

Oh, right, I was supposed to stay positive. Uhh... Hey, it's a good game when nobody dies on field, am I right?


Tonmber1

Kruk and Kuip going for the no off day copium


hemibreve

Disco/Wood opener, Harrison for 7 shutout, LuGo to close who says no


gbassman5

Whoa, a walk from one of our bullpen pitchers??? What a surprise!!!! /sssss


DemonicPanda11

Thanks to the awards person, making this weekend way better. It’s going to kill me if we never find out who it is lol


tarallelegram

i hope it's a giants player


banished-to-the-pen

Just need a bloop and a bloop and a bloop and a blast and a bloop and a bloop and a bloop and a blast and we can walk away with the W!


El_Rey_de_Spices

lol, have you ever said/typed a word enough times in a row that it suddenly doesn't seem like a word anymore? Yeah. Bloop.


_noncomposmentis

I swear to God I was just typing this > Just need a bloop & a bloop & a blast & a bloop & a bloop & a bloop & a blast & a blast


sfan27

You act as if this team is allowed more than one multi-run HR per week.


banished-to-the-pen

Great minds 😉


oliviamrow

easy peazy!


wileye11

I was asleep for most of the intense dooming but I have to ask, what do we do about Disco? Keep sending him out for his scheduled starts and watch this? Another IL stint?? Thoughts?


MadRoboticist

Give him at least a few more starts to see if they can figure what his issue actually is. He seems to start fine until he gets under some pressure. Could be that he is overthrowing or forcing his mechanics when he gets in those situations.


plvntra

They should prob put him in middle relief for a few weeks but his paycheck will mean he gets three more starts like this before an IL stint.


No_Bandicoot2306

It would be a lot easier (tougher?) decision if Junis hadn't gotten hurt.


wileye11

Aww that had slipped my mind. We could really use some Junis


doggybadgerguy

He'll get at least a couple more starts to prove this awful start isn't a fluke. If he still sucks then the tougher decisions will be made.


carbralien

That was a good first pitch slider, fooled Casali. Would have preferred to take a pitch, pressure was on all on the pitcher


lepetitbanan

Casali just wants to go home


ATLAS_Remolino

Casali needed to go pee


Tonmber1

Listen I need the Giants to be better because otherwise it's gonna be a looooooong summer before football


doggybadgerguy

I don't know what's worse, watching the Giants drop games against the Reds or 49ers off-season discussions


Tonmber1

Oh it's definitely the 49ers offseason discussions


Tonmber1

Casali reminding us what this game has been


park7911

I just don’t understand swinging at a first pitch breaking ball away when you have a bit of momentum.


doggybadgerguy

It's ok the Bengals are only up by a touchdown, just give it to Deebo he'll tie it up.


gbassman5

Uh oh, is Curt ok, or was he just adjusting his cup?


hemibreve

Curt that was suboptimal


Jrahn

Just imagine if that 3rd inning never happened.


mintchocolatechip7

Casali…


AnyAdvertising7623

FRick..hanger he couldnt bang


sfan27

That's barely even bullshit; that's just Thairo speed.


Lil-pants

Casali on the other hand


JohnsSweater

Estrada with that 99 speed


tarallelegram

1 more run to go and we get to piss off mahle's fantasy managers for ruining their quality start


tarallelegram

drat

park7911

“Tommy Pham’s throw is to Sausalito.”- Duane Kuiper.


williedills

Whether the throw is bod or not the play is real bad by Pham there with a 9 run lead. Just throw it in and keep the runner on first dummy. Please punish him!
