Damn I couldn’t even pretend to be this bad (Die hard Mets fans from queens fan since ‘87)
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.
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!
David Bell seems to really relish opportunities to get tossed
maybe he's trying to catch up to TLR in ejections
I'd like to think Red's manager was sticking up for Belt and the shitty calls against him.
Getting ejected up by 7 fuck the reds and their shit ass existence
David Bell: "I've got dinner reservations and you Damn Giants can't get any of us out. Peace."
Come on, Giants; you owe us a late-inning cocktease run or two
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?
If Mercedes hits a bomb I’ll consider today a W
Is this really a pitch worth getting sent out Reds' coach? Kapler should've been exiled to Alcatraz by now
Maybe he just wanted to get into the clubhouse A/C ahead of the rest of the team?
Chill tf out you’re up seven
Lol bro the umps gifted you how many runs today? Sit the fuck down 😂
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
It’s been an absolutely shit zone. Not surprised someone got tossed
Very surprised it was David Bell in the 9th inning though
You’re up by seven dude, how fucking stupid can you be?
Bro you have a massive lead in part due to umpire fuckery calm down lol
Catching up on the game after work and just hit the third inning…I have no words.
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.
Alright if we come back ill donate 50 bucks to the Giants community fund
John Brebbia 100% churns his own butter.
I guess he's right that it was a ball, but how the hell does he know from his angle.
Damn. David Bell was angry….
I missed it 'cause I was on the phone, what was it about?
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
Yeesh. Especially given that third inning lmao
Right?! Like, David Bell, sir, your team was gifted stuff by the umps all series long! Cool your jets
Shoutout to whomever has given me like 4 different awards today lol it has been a pleasure
What kind of idiot gets tossed while UP BY SEVEN RUNS?!?!??!?!!
That Tovala is just a toaster oven, gonna collect dust like the wife’s air fryer
It's actually pretty great if you're okay with cooking one meal at a time. Their meals are good.
Brebbia looking like a 19th century tug boat captain
Lmao Reds manager arguing with the ump during a blowout like wtf bro chill
Pfft... that's against the unwritten rules, man
Xpecting 8 solo bombs right here
Watch, they get 6 and then a deep fly-out to lose the game...
It doesn’t get more SF
Pain. We really lost a series to the fucking reds
*another series to the reds
No more Disco pls
I feel pretty good about the bullpen today other than Garcia giving up 3 2-strike hits.
garcia's regression has been coming for awhile now
The bullpen for whatever reason always seems to do well when they pitch most of the game.
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
WHAAAAAAAAAT OH HELL YEAH
….debating on whether to bid on the hat
Go for it! i absolutely would if i hadn't just spent a bunch of money on other dumb stuff!
How did this come about?? Awesome!
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!
They took the patch off of the jersey and sold/raffled/wahtever it separately?
/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!*
EXCUSE ME THAT IS INDECENT EXPOSURE lmaoooo
lol, indecent exposure?! I said you stole the patch off the jersey, not the jersey off of González!
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)~~*
> oh no now i have jersey-less lugo in my head, send help
Bwahaha, my ulterior motives were successful!
you utter *fiend* lol
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!
Wow I might just do this so I don’t have to spend $1000 just for a pride patch jersey
That’s so cool!!
Yaaaay! Congrats!! That is awesome!!
Hey, that's super neat! Very nice!
Maybe we’re throwing to get on good terms for trading
I can’t believe that happened to Slater of all people twice
Why are we playing like we’re the worst team in the MLB?..smh
slater, you're hurting my feelings
Today is clearly cursed. Slater is a great defender and missed two catchable balls.
*The sun is a deadly laser*
Mr Burns had the right idea all along
At least for this game!!
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
Votto is my favorite non Giant player
He’s a gem: yelling “fuck” so loud you can hear it on the broadcast to dancing in TikToks with kids
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.
they should 100% only start to spend once the core of the team is young
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.
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.
Buh bye Pham! Phuck off back to Cincy
I have just got to work and looked at the score. I'm offering a single Yike
june 26 2022, the day the giants smashed an mlb record by hitting 7 consecutive home runs.
The Brebbia has blessed this mess
Our lord and savior John Fulboam Brebbia
No joke a fanny pack full of garlic fries is brilliant
That's a big brain move
Cole is a smart cookie
I guess with an off-day (and another Thursday ) they don't really need to use a position player.
Yerminator for pitcher
Ah, I was hoping the same
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
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
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.
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."
"It's in the ground rules. You guys didn't read the ground rules?"
Jon Miller is going on a wild tangent on radio and has me questioning what year it is
Award game is strong with this comment.
Like everyone else, I'mma need a clip of that audio, lol
What’s he saying??
aw, missed it. what was it about?
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
ahhh haha. that's awesome!
Sure this game will end, but how will I remove the stain from my soul
Alcohol? Kills germs and bad memories
Rubbing alcohol for outside wounds, drinking alcohol for inside wounds.
This is the way.
I grew up in San Martin, now I’m hoping San Martin goes down!
I fell asleep for a bit and literally dreamt of a 9 run 9th. It is foretold.
Putting the oracle in the park
remember when the reds blew a seven run lead in two innings? great times
Please throw 36 more balls in a row
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
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
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
Not to my knowledge. It's not impossible, but teams usually only try something new if someone else has tried it successfully first.
Fair enough. Not like I'd want us to lose our good starters either!
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.
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!)
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.
Wow. Okay, when you put it that way, it definitely makes no sense, haha.
Finally, a shutdown inning!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really like when both Slater and Yaz are in the outfield. They cover a lot of ground
bring in bryce johnson and we'll have the best defensive outfield in the league aside from the braves
Oooo I like this!
But I also want LWJ and LuGo and Joc playing.
How do we reconcile all of these things??
someone smarter than me needs to figure that out
LWJ and Belt take turns at first, LuGo & Joc alt between DH & LF?
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)
I had really hoped that this would be Ruf's year, but you're right, we have better defensive players. I feel sad :(
Pretty embarrassing effort at home. Disco should not have been re-signed.
The Giants are better when they have a pudgy corner infielder
Awww! Did you see Pablo take out that catcher the other day? That was nuts
Surprised that one hung up long enough for Yaz to catch
kyle schwarber in june is basically barry bonds
Oh, right, I was supposed to stay positive.
Hey, it's a good game when nobody dies on field, am I right?
Kruk and Kuip going for the no off day copium
Disco/Wood opener, Harrison for 7 shutout, LuGo to close who says no
Whoa, a walk from one of our bullpen pitchers??? What a surprise!!!! /sssss
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
i hope it's a giants player
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!
lol, have you ever said/typed a word enough times in a row that it suddenly doesn't seem like a word anymore?
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
You act as if this team is allowed more than one multi-run HR per week.
Great minds 😉
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?
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.
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.
It would be a lot easier (tougher?) decision if Junis hadn't gotten hurt.
Aww that had slipped my mind. We could really use some Junis
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.
That was a good first pitch slider, fooled Casali. Would have preferred to take a pitch, pressure was on all on the pitcher
Casali just wants to go home
Casali needed to go pee
Listen I need the Giants to be better because otherwise it's gonna be a looooooong summer before football
I don't know what's worse, watching the Giants drop games against the Reds or 49ers off-season discussions
Oh it's definitely the 49ers offseason discussions
Casali reminding us what this game has been
I just don’t understand swinging at a first pitch breaking ball away when you have a bit of momentum.
It's ok the Bengals are only up by a touchdown, just give it to Deebo he'll tie it up.
Uh oh, is Curt ok, or was he just adjusting his cup?
Curt that was suboptimal
Just imagine if that 3rd inning never happened.
FRick..hanger he couldnt bang
That's barely even bullshit; that's just Thairo speed.
Casali on the other hand
Estrada with that 99 speed
1 more run to go and we get to piss off mahle's fantasy managers for ruining their quality start
Classic Thairo ab
I will take all the bullshit hits you have in stock
A shitty hit worked out for us!!!!
Aaaayyyyy love an infield hit!
Yankee prospect wins
Lakers are trash
I wanted salsa not Cessa!
it all started with a 3-run home run in the seventh
Yankee prospect vs Yankee prospect
Reds should let Pham pitch right now
“Tommy Pham’s throw is to Sausalito.”- Duane Kuiper.
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!
