Let’s watch the Giants: August 4th

Time to kick off yet another four-game opportunity to shut Phillies fans the hell up. That’s such a terrible position to take, saying your guys will destroy every other team. If you win, what do you get to say? “Yeah, we’re not completely fucking wrong after all!” Meanwhile, every time your team loses (like, say, in the 6th game of the NLCS) you get exposed as complete tools.

Anyways, enough of Phillie and their cheez-whiz vomiting clan. Time to watch some Giants baseball.

Phillies put two on, try the double steal… STEWART! Fuck you, Charlie. He was out. We all know that video evidence is highly unreliable in these sort of situations. You, the ones where replays are not in the Giants favor…

Apparently the throwout pissed Bumgarner off because he went ahead and put a guy right back on first and now HOLYDOGSHITDOUBLEPLAY!!

Just an aside, I’m pretty certain Cliff Lee was once convicted of tying razor blades to the feet of baby bald eagles and making them fight to the death. I may be mistaken, but I’m like 99 percent sure.

You’ll fit in just fine, Jeff Keppinger.

That one from Pence was just a fluke, Maddy. Belt-high fastball over the middle of the plate? Money pitch.


Okay, went away for a bit. Glad Bumgarner found his location while I was out. Cliff Lee must have drank an extra vile of virgin’s blood before tonight’s game. He’s totally into that sort of thing, you know…

Ryan Howard: PHENOMENAL HOME RUN POWER! iiiiiiiitybitty hitting skills.

It seems Jonathan Broxton is a Pat Burrell fan.

Calledstrikefoulballstriketthreecalledstrikefoulballstrikethreecalledstrikefoulballstrikethree. dammit.

While we’re waiting for the offense to get its act together, let’s talk sandwiches. Morty’s Deli on Golden Gate is well worth the trip out to the tenderloin. I recommend the Little Italy, the Big Easy, or if they have it on the menu, the Mac and Cheese. Giants done? Okay then. Time for a drink.

“Do you really think you haven’t been drinking?”  I’m watching the Giants, aren’t I?

This is why liveblogging baseball games sucks. The Giants aren’t scoring, the phillies aren’t scoring. Hell, CSN doesn’t even care enough to keep the satellite feed plugged in.

I have to say, very nice recovery from the kid. Too bad the offense has played the entire game the way Bumgarner played the second inning.

On deck is Hunter Pence. I hear he can’t live within 200 yards of an elementary school…

3-0. At least we can’t blame the loss on Bumgarner’s 2nd inning. So there’s that. I guess.

Yeah, whatever. Something, something, 9th inning. Oh hey, KITTIES!

Well, that was less than ideal. Still up on Arizona, so there’s that. Happy Braylon day, everyone. JDR out.

  1. In and out with the coverage…csnba does suckit

  2. We’re going to need to enlist some more peeps if this is going to make it as an active blog, ugly…

      That’s always the kicker for any blog. Though I’m okay with being the second or third choice for the Splash/Flap guys for a while. I don’t have any illusions of making this the next SBnation blog or anything.

  3. Lee is really on tonight though…gotta feel bad for Bumgarner

  4. Chico says:


  5. It’s on the Boss, Jints fans…

  6. Lee looked great…especially in the ninth

  7. Chico says:

    Well that Fucking sucked. I’m not one to complain about the strike zone but seriously? That’s a guessing game for a batter. Whatevs, Love the blog Ugly. You rock!

  8. Mucho grillos esta noche…

  9. JDR says:

    Changing the channel, I got to a replay of an A’s game. My remote stopped working and the batteries suddenly fell out of the back. That sums tonight up nicely.

  10. Hahaha…quit qwatching PPV porn!

    • Chico says:

      My wife is watching that tattoo show with the girl from LA who falls in love with anything that walks. First it’s some dork, then Nikki Sixx, now it’s Jesse James. Pfftt.

      • JDR says:

        Animal planet is showing something called “drug king hippos.” I’m watching it entirely because of the name.

      • Jealousy is an ugly thing, chico…go lay the pipe and she will let you watch Burn Notice…

      • Chico says:

        Haha! Not jealous at all, but I’m getting a kick out of the chron deleting my comments. Since when have they actually stuck up for their customers?? VK really needs to change that place or there will be nobody left. LaSalle and Carroll are cool, but where are the journalists? Ugly’s write up on the 9ers is better than anyone on the chron staff could ever dream of. Thank you ugly! A new place to talk sports.. I’m in heaven.

      • JDR says:

        The thing with the SFGate comments section is that they outsourced moderation to another company. When you have someone who just looks at comments and applies them to a set of rules without any context or background knowledge, you get shit like fishwrap and barryforever.

        That said, it’s a community we all share and I don’t see that changing any time soon, no matter how many Alex Smith jokes I can come up with.

      • Chico says:

        I hear you Ugly, it will take some transition time and people like the exposure of being recognized on a bigger blog like the splash.. Once again, thanks man.

  11. freshtodef80 says:

    Phills take Gm 1. No big deal, we win the next 3! BTW, your blog is looking good, JDR.

  12. FuckJim says:

    Greetings true splashers! Ugly, good work. Weak game but as others have mentioned, I’d much rather Lee dominate tonight then in last years WS. I’m predicting a dominant performance by Sanchy tomorrow!

  13. Hey Fresh…how you?

    What’s you Splash screenname, FuckJim?

    • FuckJim says:

      Hey SFDF, it’s Matt. Don’t think this handle will fly as a permanent handle. Perhaps I’ll just post as a guest.

  14. FuckJim says:

    Speaking of what our significant other’s are watching… I had to listen to the game tonight b/c the fiance was watching Jersey Shore.I doubt anyone could come up with a more offensive, inane, and soulless piece of crap programming!

    • JDR says:

      Charlie Steiner calling Dodger games.

    • FuckJim says:

      Hey Chico, likewise brother. Enduring bad television and a severe shortage of ganja, a deadly combo to say the least.

    • Chico says:

      Ouch! The Jersey shore.. That’s OK, I lost 14K in a week on my 401-K.. I’m watching Swiss Family Robinson and Blue Lagoon over and over again for tips 😉 Top it off with a Steinbeck novel and it’s all gravy…. It’s been a pleasure even with a loss on this new forum… Buenos Noches..

  15. I’m outttie ‘JD’s Avengers’

  16. FuckJim says:

    Some troll keeps deleting Ugly’s post in reference to this blog. Fuck the Splash and its ‘moderation’.

    • JDR says:

      Eh, I’d say it’s been a pretty successful night thus far. I’m still scrambling to keep up with those of you that made it over.

      Thanks assholes, I don’t even have enough time to drink off the loss.

    • Chico says:

      Fuck it! To each his own man. I have some stories about that place (sfgate) that I would love to share but in due time.. I’m getting used to the format of this blog, it’s like driving a new car with a smile on your face 🙂

  17. Where is the new blog entry???…are you out partying on a Friday insteado updating this blog?…The Nerve!

    • JDR says:

      Work outing. Glanced over at the TV in time to catch the fight and subsequent ass-beating. I’m still outpacing Schulman though…
