Pregame Vin Scully ceremony, and tears, commencing

karen said...

If you're not crying you might want to check your heartbeat.

Orel said...

This is devastating

karen said...

I think Kevin Costner ripped my heart out.

Orel said...

C'mon, The Postman wasn't that bad

karen said...

How'd you hold up through that Orel?? I balled my eyes out. Don't know how we're going to get through this.

Fred's Brim said...

Me too, still grateful they showed it all

karen said...

I absolutely love Andrew Toles.

Fred's Brim said...

Another amazing throw by Toles to save Kazmir's hide

Fred's Brim said...

Stripling warming up, Kazmir must not be right

Fred's Brim said...

Good inning for Strip

Fred's Brim said...

Damn, all outs are from Ks through 2, he's coming after Aaron Harang and Tom Seaver

And DeGrom for Ks to start a game

Fred's Brim said...

But maybe that doesn't count with all of the walks in between

Fred's Brim said...

Wow, what a catch by Reddick, saves 2 runs (for now, Arenado is up)

Fred's Brim said...

Wow, big K of Arenado on a nasty 3-2 curve

Fred's Brim said...

8 Ks now, only a Turner grounout to third the only non K

Fred's Brim said...

Feels like we are losing

Fred's Brim said...

And I am losing the battle with sleep.
Gonna save some bullets for tomorrow night
Gnite all, get us a win!

Orel said...

Stay safe, FB!

Orel said...

I was pretty slurpy during the ceremony, Karen. It must have been like pulling teeth for Vin but if we were going to force him to sit down and bask in our love, this was the time to do it.

Orel said...

Joc HR! Ethier HR!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I'm just tuning in but I'm pretty sure that's a typo Orel. You just typed Ethier HR. Lemme check the box score

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I just fact checked Orel, and he's right, Ethier with a PH dinger.

Orel said...

And there are 54,000 witnesses!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Did this game start late?

Orel said...

7:45 due to pregame ceremony for some guy

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Cmon Kenley, DBT can barely keep his eyes open...

Orel said...

WIN

spank said...

Fuck Ethier!

Fred's Brim said...

2! Let's finish this this weekend for Vin!

Orel said...

Fred's Brim said...

4-0 good guys, Clayton just gave up his first hit in the 4th

Orel said...

Wonder if he goes past five innings tonight

Fred's Brim said...

2 more runs with the help of some Colorado mistakes, 6-0 good guys

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel, gotta figure it'll be around a pitch count. Giving up the hit was probably a good thing. Hopefully this gets out of hand and the yank him after 90 pitches. Maybe if he gives up a run, that'll make it easier for him to take being pulled earlier than he'd like

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton works around a GR double with help from another nice play from Chase

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton helps his own cause, 7-0 good guys. Padres coming back on Giants, now 6-5 after Bumgarner gives up another homer

Fred's Brim said...

Tied up in SD!

Orel said...

Kershaw throws 91 pitches over 7 innings

Fred's Brim said...

2 TD lead after the Reddick grand slam. I hope they pull Clayton after that long inning

Fred's Brim said...

6-6 going to the bottom of the 9th in whale's vagina

Fred's Brim said...

Good, Chavez in

Orel said...

14-1

Orel said...

...is the final score! Giants blow a 6-0 lead but end up winning in 10, 9-6

karen said...

RIP Jose Fernandez. Only 24 years old and a brilliant pitcher and shining star in our beloved game of baseball. Thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, teammates, and fans.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Jose Fernandez, RIP.

karen said...

K for McCarthy to start the game...

karen said...

Seager just saluted Vin while getting into the batter's box.

QuadSevens said...

Kendrick and Turner did the same.

karen said...

Q7...I missed the first part of the inning so I wasn't sure. I love it that they are each paying their respects to him.

QuadSevens said...

After Turner did it, Vin said "Are they waving up here? Holy mackerel!"

QuadSevens said...

McCarthy looks good through two.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

McCarthy doesn't suck ass today. that's a good sign

QuadSevens said...

Vin waving back to Chooch was cool to see.

QuadSevens said...

Chooch doubles! Kiké up with nobody out.

karen said...

I am not going to make it through this game without crying. Every time they take off their helmets to acknowledge Vin and he waves back I get all teary eyed.

QuadSevens said...

Just remember. We get three more games with Vin after this one.

QuadSevens said...

Blah. Can't get them in. No score after two.

karen said...

You are reading my mind Q. Even though it will be in hated frisco I keep telling myself we still get him next weekend.

karen said...

Crap. After that promising inning it's the Rox that score.

QuadSevens said...

Great diving catch by HK!

karen said...

Doc needs to start thinking about getting Brandon outta there.

QuadSevens said...

Single and double to start this inning again.

QuadSevens said...

Seager with the excuse me swing. One out.

QuadSevens said...

Puig with the sac fly scores HK47.

Orel said...

Giants lead 3-1 in the 3rd

karen said...

Now 3-2 Evildoers

Orel said...

McCarthy out after 5.1 innings. 69 pitches, 2 R

karen said...

Madres tie it up in 5th

Orel said...

We gotta get Tyler Anderson out

Orel said...

Seager ties it up!

karen said...

OMG OMG!!! Tied up baby!!!

karen said...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Seager is awesome!

Orel said...

Wow. Vin plays a recording of him singing "Wind Beneath My Wings"

Fred's Brim said...

That was awesome
