THE ORIGINAL ODD

REALLY?!

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS WON TODAY AGAINST THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES and no surprise to me BRANDON BELT hero again.  I just go on and on about this boy because he’s amazing!

 

Seriously why in the hell would a “SF GIANTS Blog” speak of unheard of oddities such as trading the BRANDONS etal??

 

Seems the ROSTER really didn’t need any “tweeking”  after all- too bad we had to waste most of the season trying on players that just didn’t fit.

Hey this isn’t the THREE BEARS we are rolling with it’s LAND OF ODD which could have been filled with WALK OFF HOME RUNS AND IMPOSSIBLE COMEBACKS with the regulars BELT, PANIK, CRAWFORD POSEY -BUT NO…!!

oh and that 11-3 romp the night before was deja vu as I watched the “NEVER SAY NEVER” Kids put their buddy BUMGARNER in the winners circle FINALLY!

WHY THE HELL DID YOU HAVE TO MESS AROUND IN THE FIRST PLACE?  ANY IDIOT KNOWS THAT EVEN A GOOD THING TAKES A BIT OF A NOSE DIVE ONCE IN A WHILE BUT THE ABILITY TO COME BACK AND PLAY LIKE…

WELL like the SF Giants did in 2010 2012 2014 it’s that magic that never left the team!  It simply moved from one guy like a spirit.  FOR EXAMPLE from AUBRY HUFF to HUNTER PENCE  from BENJI MOLENA to BUSTER POSEY from ANDRES TORRES to ANGEL PAGAN from TIMMY LINCECUM to JEFF SAMARDZIJA if you see where I’m goin’

I must admit I was skeptical when JEFF SAMARDZIJA sucked so loudly in the beginning and he tried to tell us to “give me time, you’ll see” guess he wasn’t pulling our legs after all because he seems to get better every-time he takes the mound.

Perhaps it’s time for me to learn how to spell his name.  Great job boys!  STILL THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE WATCHING  BASEBALL!!

Another Day at the Office – Brandon Crawford

Note to an Original Brandon:

When you are replaying the video of your HR you will not be alone I know I will be watching it over & over along with thousands of other Brandon fans!

It was so perfect that you are the one that got that walk off today! It was meant to be.

The bat flip was very cool and well deserved.I know how exhilarating that game was for me so I can imagine you are going to tingle for a while.

I think what is making me smile right now is the fact that you had an epic day like that and you went home to write this blog. That makes a fan feel special. Like you couldn’t wait to share it with us.

I knew this was going to be a magical season but it is even greater than my expectations and they were high.

Couldn’t feel more love for a team and the individuals that make up the current roster are my favorite in 56 years!
I’m proud to be a BRANDON!

Brandon and Brandon

I’m still a little damp from Angel dumping the Gatorade cooler on me. I think he got more water on Amy G. than on me.

I’ve watched the replay twice already, I’m not going to lie. I’ll go home and probably watch it again. I might keep it on a loop. Maybe make a GIF for my phone. These don’t happen to me every day. In fact, I have never hit a walk-off home run in my life. Little League, college, minors, anywhere.

I knew it was out as soon as the barrel of the bat hit the ball. You can just tell how it feels and sounds.

Did you like that bat flip? I learned it from Bum the other day on his grand slam. Seriously, though, everybody’s got a bat flip. We call it pimping the home run. (Is that politically incorrect to say?) You give it a…

Puking During Puig At Bats

Although this may seem in direct conflict to my last post, as I said it’s a “rivalry” an on the field rivalry. I find this blog amusing and I think it mirror’s my thoughts on the past 2 games rather closely. Enjoy!

THE San Francisco Giants Blog

“This guy Puig is gonna be a problem….” –San Dawg

I forget when he said that, probably during Puig’s first game up. It was a simple line, yet foreboding, and it gave us fair warning of what was to come….

*This guy Puig* is grinding on my patience. It’s not just the constant media jack off session that bothers me although that’s part of it. I thought it was complete BS that he was throwing sucker haymakers in the brawl with AZ and managed to get exactly zero days of suspension. Calls for him to be named to the all star game, after 60 at bats, was definitely irksome. And while I’m not doubting his talent for a moment, I was looking forward to Bumgarner knocking him down a few *puigs* in the game last night. So it was quite easy for me to go quickly and loudly into a…

GET ON THOSE HITTIN’ SHOES

OK WE TAKE ON LA AGAIN TONIGHT, FRESH GAME, FRESH START, STILL GOT SOME ISSUES BUT ONE OF THEM SHOULD NOT BE THE RIVALRY AGAINST THE DODGERS! Let’s concentrate on gettin’ our bats on! 

To sum up what our players, who stood along side Dodger players on the field one day after the horrible incident that resulted in the beating of Brian Stow, “This is a baseball rivalry, on field rivalry, it ends there.  After the game, off the field we are friends.”

We need to remember this.

Yes, BEAT LA! Beat them badly!

But on the field. Those people we call the “STINKING DODGERS” & THE STINKING DODGER FANS” well, darn it, they are people to!

Even when we haven’t been facing the Dodger’s the negativity from Giants “fans” has been overwhelming. It’s so bad on Twitter that I pray for the day these negative fair weather fans will jump or be pushed off the ban wagon and once again the SF Giants can brag about the tremendous fan base they have!  A team that doesn’t have to “freak out” because of fan negativity voice after every less than perfect performance, is going to be a more relaxed, happy, productive team. Lighten up people, this is our team!

In case you think this opinion is all mine, below from a seasoned SF Giants fan & real person, I share her thoughts;

“Hi there! I just had to talk to you via email…I hope that’s ok. Last night twitter was filled with so much negativity! And I’m no prude, but so many vulgar comments were made. I just was disgusted & I felt like it took away the enjoyment of watching the game for me. One of my best friends is a diehard Dodger fan & we’ve had a lot of good chats throughout last year & this… but all done in fun with consideration for each other. Maybe that’s what’s missing on Twitter. Since it’s such a public forum, and very few of us really know each other, that respect and consideration is missing. I don’t know…maybe I’m just too old for this kind of mindless chatter! I do enjoy talking to a lot of people, you of course, but some just seem to cross the line. So I’m thinking tonight I’ll just watch the game & chat with my Dodger friend, who calls her beloved team the “Cellar Dwellers!” Any thoughts? I value your opinion! 🙂

The SF Giants  are about to EXPLODE! Enjoy it every moment of it! After all it’s GIANTS BASEBALL! And there is nothing better!

In baseball there is AB, K, R, H, E, LOB, RBI, WAR, BB, SB, CS, OBP, SLG, OPS… and the Giants have added another: WOW (Walk Off Win).  In the 10th inning Angel Pagan hit an inside-the-park home run (the third of his career) for the Giants’ 7th WOW of the season.

SF GIANTS GET BOTH CHEEKS INTO IT

ANOTHER AMAZING WIN LAST NIGHT BY THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS!

Making it even more beautiful is the fact it was against the LA DODGERS!

Saving us from another boring baseball game our team provided the torture once again. I loved it!

Here is how I saw the game:

POSEY – 2 X RBI Ground-rule double! Got both his “cheeks into it” says Krukow and it was almost OUTTA HERE!

BLANCO- RBI

POSEY-RBI without swinging the bat

BLANCO-RBI

TORRES– HOME RUN His first of the season!

Something about the Dodgers scoring 7 runs in the fifth inning.

“Providing some much-needed therapy” for the struggling LA Dodgers. Krukow is right so, you’re welcome LA.

MORE SF GIANTS RUNS!

Wild pitch scores POSEY.

PABLO – Sac Fly

*PEGUARO- Double! I witnessed this guy first hand in Scottsdale and have been waiting to see him in the line up!

THEN the last guy on the bench comes to bat

Guillermo QuirozWALK OFF HOMERUN WINS THE GAME!

You just can’t ask for better baseball than that!

Walk Off Win!

Wish I could have been at AT&T tonight but I am consoling myself with the fact that the Giants got the win and that my son was there to enjoy it!

It was an exciting night at AT&T Park, complete with a walk off win and a fireworks show.
