For the second time in three seasons the Giants are San Francisco’s treat. They’ve won four National League pennants since Los Angeles’ last one in 1988, they’ve been the better organization for a quarter of a century, and Bruce Bochy goes for another World Series victory beginning Wednesday night at AT&T Park.

And good Dodger fans everywhere mourn. Cardinals fans do too, I suppose, but who the bleep cares about them this evening? Their team choked, plain and simple, and by barely squeaking into the playoffs on the back of something known only as the “second wild card,” didn’t deserve a chance to repeat anyway.

The debate is over. Frisco won going away and is the class of the NL, its best team by plenty and a worthy league representative. My friends and I will root against them with every fiber of our being, but they are a worthy representative.

San Francisco finishes the playoffs with its league’s best manager, its likely-MVP in Buster Posey, and sports a little godsend in Marco Scutaro. As much as I wanted him in Blue, I have no idea what’s gotten into the 36-year old infielder. Not a clue.

I do know this, however: teams win championships when surprisingly, nay, unexplainably-good things happen. And Scutaro qualifies on that score.

The Giants face Detroit’s Tigers with the stronger starting pitching, the better closer and home field advantage, unfairly-earned courtesy of cheating drug-abusing castaway Melky Cabrera. And they’re probably coming home with another ring. Or 25 rings, to be exact.

But look – and I say this proudly – I hate the Giants. I absolutely despise them. I hated them the day I was born, I’ve hated them my entire life, I hate them today, and there will be no apology tour for my saying so.

Forget the ridiculous pull-for-your-league crap, and the even more inane but-they’re-the-California-team idea. San Francisco is 400 miles from L.A., and as far as our respective baseball teams are concerned, that’s too close for my taste.

Giants fans hate us (and our city) to a greater degree – a much greater degree – than we do them and theirs (in fact, Angelinos generally love San Francisco, and aside from the Giants, what’s not to love?). To that point no one in either city will argue. So it’s the least I can do, as I congratulate them on their crown, is wish them unwell.

Good luck in the Series, evil Halloween-colored ones. May you be swept in as humiliating fashion as can possible by. May Justin Verlander blow you away while Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder splash hit you to Kingdom Come.

Lose, San Francisco. Lose badly. May you be 56 years between championships, as is your penchant. Lose, lose, lose, lose, lose. And we’ll see you at Dodger Stadium in April.

Gotta disagree about the pitching. I’ll take Verlander, Scherzer, Sanchez and Fister over Zito, Bumgarner, Cain and Lincecum (this year’s version, anyway).

Payback for 1987 NLCS and the Oquendo hit.  Glad the Cards were sent packing and the better team is representing the NL.

Can’t wait to get to Arizona with a crowd size that would fit into my house all at once. Ahhhh!

Having lived in Giants country for 27 years now I have “grown” (SF feel good word) to not HATE the Giants, I just dislike when they suceed and my Dodgers end up looking stupid.  Really enjoy the comments

For years sports writers up here have been trotting out the time-worn and oft-repeated adage about the SF Giants – LA Dodgers rivaley:  that it means so much more to the Giants’ fans and that  the Dodgers’ fans are far from adamant  in their dislike of the Giants.  I llearned since joining this thread that that is a pile of horseshit.  Sounds good, seems plausible, but just ain’t so, I I have learned here.
 
The rationale behind this specious claim was typically – years ago, anyway – that all those years when the Giants had damn good teams and the Giants were time-and-again coming in second and/or otherwise seeing the Dodgers go to the playoffs and winning WS titles made the Giants’ fans jealous.  That is believable, even likely true for many Giants’ fans.  But that the D’s fans are any less vitriolic in their hate of the Giants, just read Howard’s piece above and the comments by the Blue Boys here over the last couple of months.
 
But I probably wouldn’t want it any other way.  Just an observation, to me a revelation.

As I watched the Giants pile it on the Cards, I felt the life-energy of MLB 2012 finally run down the drain. It feels like the final outcome was meant to be, and I’m sorely disappointed. I do think it can be a good series if SF can carry their clutch hitting into the series-and the starters hold it together for 6 innings per outing-then it might not be a Tiger’s mauling. I’ll listen to the local broadcasters on MLB radio, because for some reason, that will make it easier to mentally absorb the series. Enjoy.

@eppis1
 I disagree with the notion that the Tigers are favored because they are so much better than the Giants.  Sure, Tigers could very well win the series but the idea that it’s likely to be Tigers easily is crazy.

@Tom in San Mateo  When I was in college at UCSB in the mid to late 80s, the makeup of the school was something like 60% south of SB, 35% north of SB, and about 5% other (out of state/country).  The dorm I was in for my freshman year in 1986 turned out to be at least 50% northern Cali – probably more.  What was shocking to me was just how much they hated, and I mean HATED, the LA teams and, for that matter, anything else that had to do with Los Angeles.  They never had a good word to say about anything within 50 miles of that disgusting, smog ridden, devil’s armpit called the City of Angels. This was so strange to me because, while I also hated the Giants and Niners, it wasn’t nearly as strong of a “hate” and I still thought cities like San Francisco, Monterey, and San Jose were great cities even if I didn’t care for their sports teams.

@Steve in North Hollywood
 I can’t imagine feeling that way and then going to school at UCSB, one of the most beautiful areas on the planet.  That’s just silly youth.  about 20 years ago I spent nearly a week in West LA, just off Sunset.  it was December and I was blown away by the perfect weather.  Went to a bunch of parties, six foot models with lingusiticss degrees that seemed like total airheads, Kato Kaelin holding court.  It was the silliest cast of characters I ever saw.  Nearly all of them gorgeous and handsome.  The coolest guys I met were HS graduate southern rockers trying to make it.  They all hung out on the apt. patios smoking cigs and grass talking about how hard they were working.  I grew up in academic family but have an affinity for working-class guys, which group I identify with in large part.  I don’t hate LA, it’s really quite an area with fantastic weather, and I don’t hate the Dodgers, either.  In fact, I went to one doubleheader against the Dodgers at Candlestick Park and I hated the drunken vitriol shown by a certain ilk of stupid – or shall I say stoopid – so called Gtiants’ fans.  Can’t stand shit like that.  Hating somebody for rooting for their team.  As I’ve shared here before I asked my old man when I was an adult why he never took me to a Dodgers game up here and he said, too much like a football game, too many drunks.  He was ritght.

@Tom in San Mateo  I’ve spent virtually my entire life in Los Angeles (other than 5 years in SB and a year in France) and I’ve rarely seen much of the Los Angeles that you visited.  And I spent 8-10 years in acting classes and auditions all over Hollywood/LA.  What I noticed more than anything is that in those types of environments where 6-foot models run rampant and degenerates like Kaelin are holding up the walls, there is a disproportionate percentage of LA transplants.  I was overrun by them in every acting class I had and in every place I’ve ever worked within the entertainment industry.  The dirty little secret about the “Industry”, in all it’s alleged liberal ass-holeness and douchebagery, is the fact that it’s made up mostly of non-LA types.  It’s the best and/or worst from all over the country and, for that matter, the planet.  I recently worked for two years freelance at ABC and I was one of a handful of Los Angelinos.  You would have thought I was from outer space.  And, although many of the people working there had come to LA from places like Chicago, Boston, NY, Michigan, Philly and Northern California because they wanted a job in said industry, most were truly enjoying the fruits of the city.  They were raising families in a great city with great weather and lots of stuff to do and, yet, cursing the very place that was providing them their livelihood.  ”Too much traffic”, “can’t get a real pizza”, “people are fake”, “too much plastic surgery”, “LA people don’t know how to drive when it rains”, “there’s no ‘city’ in Los Angeles”, “too much gang violence”, “there aren’t any seasons!!!” etc etc etc.However, when I traveled Europe and lived in France, they loved the fact that I was from Los Angeles.  To the Europeans,  I couldn’t have come from a more interesting place.  And, I think, this is the basis for much of the hating of Los Angeles and, by extension, the entire state of California, by the rest of the country.  To the Euro’s, California is a dream place and Los Angeles/Hollywood is it’s capitol.  Sure, NY is amazing and they love it too – especially the hard core city types – but being from LA was just flat out cool.
 
Anyway, here’s an interesting read I think a few of the people here might enjoy:  http://matadornetwork.com/notebook/why-san-francisco-hates-los-angeles/

@Steve in North Hollywood  @Tom in San Mateo I grew up in Pasadena and have been living in Santa Barbara the past 17 years after going to UCSB.  When I was in school I felt like the split between kids from NorCal & So Cal was tilted towards the northerners, but maybe that was just my group of friends.  I was a little surprised by their hatred and contempt for all things LA.  They’d spout off their NorCal talking points, which at the time was just smog and the Raiders/Rams leaving.  I never really gave SF a second thought, but the northerners were so adamant about how lame LA was.  My favorite comeback was always, “if NoCal is so great, why did you have to come south for school?”  I never got real answers.
 
I firmly believe the 2010 MLB postseason never happened, much like in 1994, to me there just was no World Series.  My hatred for all things Giants cannot accurately be put into words, it is a deep hatred and I want nothing but pain and suffering for that franchise and its battery-chucking fan base.  If I won the lottery, I’d buy the Giants, just so I could run them into the ground.  Either that or I’d sell the team to McCourt for $1 and let him do it himself.  Go Tigers.

 Good point re people from northern cal – why did they go south to go to college?  I can’t imagine going somewhere, e.g., UCSB and then criticising the whole area.  Santa Barbara is cool as ever.  I spent some time there at the university’s history library researching stuff and I was treated wonderfully.

well tom, you just got your win there. he’ll be out of the game momentarily and you can coast to victory. my guess is it’s not the way you would want to win, but this is really a shame. they have to take him out. he’s probably got a concussion. he simply has to come out. and he will probably between innings. what a shame.

@Howard Cole
 no matter what team

October 25, 2012 5:49 pm

avatar

@chasramsfan I don’t see it now. they’ve got to take fister out. in fact, they shouldn’t even let him hit. think how dangerous that can be.

October 25, 2012 5:50 pm

avatar

oh great, and he hits lefty too, with his pitching arm exposed. an american league right hander hitting from the left side. oy.

October 25, 2012 5:51 pm

@Howard Cole brain swelling

pagan should go as cinderella for halloween. he’ll be horrible again next year, so we have that to look forward to.

October 25, 2012 5:58 pm

avatar

looked safe, but he would’ve been safe he just ran right through like a normal person.

October 25, 2012 6:00 pm

avatar

nice to see scutaro do something stupid for a change. maybe an omen.

October 25, 2012 6:01 pm

avatar

by this time last night, the game was already over. translation: this is better.

October 25, 2012 6:03 pm

e-6. the beginning of the end for sf.

October 25, 2012 6:05 pm

avatar

why am I posting by myself here.

October 25, 2012 6:09 pm

avatar

I think it has to do with the score. the second the giants get a lead, tom will chime in more.

October 25, 2012 6:10 pm

he was trying to win tacos for america

October 25, 2012 6:10 pm

@Howard Cole
 had to change clothes.  had a bunch of windows open and getting cool here.  Not in LA, you understand.

October 25, 2012 6:14 pm

@rotarandy
 read that yesterday.  I’ll go get a free taco.  haven’t been to Taco Bell in two years

October 25, 2012 6:14 pm

avatar

@rotarandy
 good one, Randy.  funny

October 25, 2012 6:15 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo I just did the same thing, actually. it must be 65.

October 25, 2012 6:16 pm

avatar

so romo comes across well. likeable, even. too bad he looks like such a jackass on the field.

October 25, 2012 6:16 pm

satch batting again. looks like a bowery boy to me.

October 25, 2012 6:17 pm

@Howard Cole
 I can see the Satch take.  angular, elastic-looking face.

avatar

@Howard Cole hey howard I lead you back here because you missed liking these posts for points

October 25, 2012 6:20 pm

avatar

in case no one noticed, this is actually a world series game. except for the dumb base coaching, but other than that, this is what it’s supposed to look like.

October 25, 2012 6:25 pm

avatar

If Bumgarner gets his delivery back for the series the Tigers are in for a rough go for the title.

October 25, 2012 6:27 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo it’s just one game, and he’s pitching at home. detroit is an entirely different animal. I’m holding out hope for this game.

October 25, 2012 6:28 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I agree.  we’ll certainly see.  G’s are good road team this year.  real good road team.  and they’re likely to knock a few out in Detroit, too, esp. with an extra hitter.

October 25, 2012 6:30 pm

avatar

ok, now I get that snl sketch from last week.

October 25, 2012 6:30 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 cryptic, Howard.  wth are you talking about?

October 25, 2012 6:30 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo that brad pitt commercial. they did a thing on it on snl but I hadn’t seen the actual spot till just now. now it’s funny.

October 25, 2012 6:32 pm

avatar

so randy, you think brandon crawford is related to willie crawford?

October 25, 2012 6:33 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole I am afraid you seek knowledge from wrong source..

October 25, 2012 6:34 pm

avatar

@rotarandy you don’t remember willie crawford?

October 25, 2012 6:35 pm

@Howard Cole
 I forgot all about willie crawford.  had to look him up

@Howard Cole I don’t remember much of anything these days…turn 58 tomorrow and have been killing brain cells for some 45 years..

October 25, 2012 6:38 pm

avatar

@rotarandy well, happy birthday, my friend. hang onto to what’s left of those cells, will ya. you’ll need them for next year’s thread.

October 25, 2012 6:40 pm

@Howard Cole But it is not the years but the milege that scares me…

October 25, 2012 6:41 pm

is that all the troops we got over there??

October 25, 2012 6:47 pm

all of 10 or 11 ???

October 25, 2012 6:48 pm

I saw more than that on any given weekday at starbucks when I was living in san diego.

October 25, 2012 6:51 pm

@Howard Cole
 what on earth are you guys tqlking about?

October 25, 2012 6:53 pm

avatar

Giants drafted Fister out of HS but he didn’t sign.

October 25, 2012 6:53 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I think I figured it out.  soliders in the stands?

October 25, 2012 6:54 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo  @Howard Cole the game cut to a shot of our troops  it was like a empty room

October 25, 2012 6:54 pm

avatar

G’s need Posey and Pence to get hot

October 25, 2012 6:57 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo no they don’t.

October 25, 2012 7:01 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo smart man.

October 25, 2012 7:01 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 do so.  :)

October 25, 2012 7:01 pm

avatar

Sure glad this is a G’s home game

October 25, 2012 7:02 pm

avatar

cabrera owes the world a homer now.

October 25, 2012 7:02 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 no he doesn’t

October 25, 2012 7:02 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo I’m not.

October 25, 2012 7:02 pm

avatar

this is the inning.

October 25, 2012 7:03 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo toche.

October 25, 2012 7:03 pm

avatar

he’s not throwing that hard. cabrera shouldn’t have a problem here.

October 25, 2012 7:04 pm

avatar

I’ll take a walk.

October 25, 2012 7:05 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole I.m shameless

October 25, 2012 7:06 pm

avatar

if detroit had more hitters who could work counts, bumgarner would be at 100 pitches already.

October 25, 2012 7:06 pm

avatar

quick, run for him!
 
just kidding.

October 25, 2012 7:07 pm

avatar

we wuz robbed.  that was a strike

October 25, 2012 7:07 pm

avatar

think how important that base coaching mistake is now. wow.

October 25, 2012 7:07 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo infield practice. bumgarner could’ve run the ball to second and still gotten him at first.

October 25, 2012 7:08 pm

avatar

Detroit has three industrial fire hydrants come to the plate in a row.  No taco for America from this trio.

October 25, 2012 7:09 pm

avatar

oy

October 25, 2012 7:09 pm

avatar

it’s been 11 years. can we get back to just take me out to the ballgame already? c’mon. enough.

October 25, 2012 7:12 pm

avatar

G’s have better runners and athletes and never thought I’d say that.  G’s were always the sluggos going up against the D’s and the Cards who always had speedsters

October 25, 2012 7:13 pm

avatar

that’s bochy too. you can’t steal bases with a manager who just sits there. ala mattingly. bochy’s great.

October 25, 2012 7:14 pm

avatar

Guess we’re gonna starve tomorrow, Randy.  Doesn’t look like there’s a Doritos Locos Taco in either of our immediate futures.

October 25, 2012 7:15 pm

avatar

doesn’t this feel like a giants dodgers game, circa 2012. dodgers can’t score and blow their one big chance. then the giants win in the late innings. piece of cake for them

October 25, 2012 7:15 pm

avatar

fister still in there. wow.

October 25, 2012 7:15 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo consider yourself lucky.

October 25, 2012 7:16 pm

@Howard Cole
 Howie just called me fat

I’m having don jose frozen tacquitos right now. all i can taste is the corn tortilla. ugh.

October 25, 2012 7:17 pm

good at bat for pence there.

October 25, 2012 7:17 pm

@Howard Cole
 I know what you’re talking about and I agree.  Funny, was just thinking the same thing when that guy was singing.  I agree.

October 25, 2012 7:18 pm

Going to finish game from   Z sushi  …next game boys…be safe

October 25, 2012 7:19 pm

avatar

@rotarandy
 later, Randy.  have a nice evening.

October 25, 2012 7:20 pm

avatar

@rotarandy that’s your second z sushi mentioned on the thread. must be good.

October 25, 2012 7:24 pm

avatar

you should get the game right here, tom. more dodgers like play. bring in the lefty to face the lefty and walk him. lame.

October 25, 2012 7:24 pm

avatar

they’re trying to give you an out and you can’t even get one.

October 25, 2012 7:25 pm

avatar

well, looks like I’m getting my wish, right? I asked for a sweep.

October 25, 2012 7:26 pm

avatar

classic.

October 25, 2012 7:27 pm

avatar

that might be enough right there, and fister would actually get the loss.

October 25, 2012 7:28 pm

avatar

I’m surprised about this move. really surpised. probably a big break for detroit and bochy’s first mistake. course, he doesn’t know theriot like we do.

October 25, 2012 7:30 pm

avatar

tom gets his lead and yet no comment? what gives?

October 25, 2012 7:31 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I want two.  concentrating

October 25, 2012 7:31 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo understood. but I think you can relax now.

October 25, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 doubt it.  yaneverknow

October 25, 2012 7:38 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo yes you do.

October 25, 2012 7:38 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 a lot of speculation that Bum went from damn good to poor because of overwork.   so it makes sense from that pov

October 25, 2012 7:39 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo could be just that.

October 25, 2012 7:39 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 yeah, but I’d be a jerk and maybe a jinx, too, if I said so.

October 25, 2012 7:39 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo maybe vogelsong too. but that is my one problem with bochy. he does run his starters into the ground. pretty much always has.

October 25, 2012 7:40 pm

avatar

without a murmur of protest.

October 25, 2012 7:40 pm

avatar

You have to many threads… clean out that closet.  So I get no response to my comment so I am going yo paste it in  …
Yo Howie. how you be, different game if they don’t send Prince?  Lets face it he’s no”Little Red Corvette” on the bases…

October 25, 2012 7:41 pm

avatar

yeah, it was absolutely ridiculous. total brain cramp by lamont out there. he shouda had second and third and no outs. that’s the whole game right there. just like the dodgers and tim wallach.

October 25, 2012 7:42 pm

avatar

@Rickstr
 I’d say so. he was the first out.

October 25, 2012 7:42 pm

avatar

my thread is acting wierd. I’m seeing rick’s comment, then i’m not, then I am, and now I’m not again.

October 25, 2012 7:43 pm

avatar

why is this clown still out there?

October 25, 2012 7:43 pm

avatar

he’ll bunt

October 25, 2012 7:45 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 he should.

October 25, 2012 7:46 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo now that’s 0-2 he’ll just single him to third.

October 25, 2012 7:46 pm

avatar

squeezed? what? c’mon.

October 25, 2012 7:47 pm

avatar

this just boggles my mind. smyly has absolutely nothing and yet he’s out there. I mean, wow.

October 25, 2012 7:48 pm

avatar

omg. scutaro doesn’t come through for a change.

October 25, 2012 7:49 pm

avatar

a breathe of fresh air.

October 25, 2012 7:49 pm

avatar

mmmm, taco tomorrow.

October 25, 2012 7:49 pm

avatar

you don’t get your bunt down so you steal a base. that’s managing. and we never see it in l.a.

October 25, 2012 7:50 pm

avatar

I’ll skip that one.

October 25, 2012 7:50 pm

avatar

can we have a pitching change now please?

October 25, 2012 7:50 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 good point

October 25, 2012 7:51 pm

avatar

dotel was a horrible dodger, so a three run homer would be just about right here. on the other hand, it  looks like he’s lose 25 pounds, so who knows.

October 25, 2012 7:51 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I remember when he was on the A’s.  he’s been on a dozen teams, I think.  a whole bunch, anyway

October 25, 2012 7:52 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo mattingly will ALWAYS choose the bunt over the steal. doesn’t matter who’s at the plate of who the runner is. that’s just what he does.

October 25, 2012 7:52 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo just about a team a year…or more.

October 25, 2012 7:52 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I’ll likely skip the taco too.

October 25, 2012 7:53 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo or at least spend the 80 cents and get something edible, on a day when you won’t have to wait an hour.

October 25, 2012 7:54 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 he used to strike out a lot of batters. not sure how he does now.  he’s nearly 40

October 25, 2012 7:54 pm

avatar

I take back what I said. he’s only lost 10 pounds. or 8.

October 25, 2012 7:55 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I don’t handle crowds.  not even sure what’s being given away.  a thumbnail-sized taco probably

October 25, 2012 7:55 pm

avatar

did you hear that? they just said 13 teams.

October 25, 2012 7:55 pm

avatar

oy

October 25, 2012 7:56 pm

avatar

I’m sure they’ll get at least one more run here, and probably two or three. oy.

October 25, 2012 7:56 pm

avatar

now that I think of it, dotel was great with the astros when he was younger. but that was ages ago. still throws reasonably hard, but I don’t have a lot of confidence in him.

October 25, 2012 7:58 pm

avatar

it would take a miracle now. you can start the celebration in san mateo.

October 25, 2012 7:59 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 wow.  I thought 12 was too many.  more like 10.  which is very many

October 25, 2012 8:00 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 not me.  yaneverknow

October 25, 2012 8:00 pm

avatar

so they get a run on three walks and a fly ball on an 0-2 pitch. in other words, oy.

October 25, 2012 8:01 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 well put.  esp. the two letter summation.  :)

October 25, 2012 8:02 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo when I had craving a couple of weeks ago, I actually went to both the taco bell and del taco websites to see if there was one near me. luckily, there wasn’t.

October 25, 2012 8:02 pm

avatar

mccarver summed that up well. he takes a lot of grief, but I think he’s pretty good.

October 25, 2012 8:03 pm

avatar

I’m local radio all the way.

October 25, 2012 8:04 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I’m local radio all the way.  and Internet boxscore

October 25, 2012 8:04 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo I always have the boxscores in front of me too. I like to be up to date on pitch counts, especially. and during the year, averages, rbis, etc.
 
ah the regular season. those were the days.

October 25, 2012 8:06 pm

avatar

ok. here we go to the ninth. I’m thinking one, two three and we head to detroit.

October 25, 2012 8:06 pm

avatar

Howard, sorry to say but I’m not sure you’re spelling oy correctly.  hehe, haha

October 25, 2012 8:08 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 me too.  If I’m listening to game I go back and forth between this thread and boxscore.  know’s who’s coming up in the next inning, etc.

October 25, 2012 8:09 pm

avatar

dog’s being obnoxious. can’t wait five minutes, obviously.

October 25, 2012 8:11 pm

avatar

and she’s not very sensitive.

October 25, 2012 8:11 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 Rin-Tin-Tin makes me protect myself, esp. when Howie’s pissed off and I feel like braggin’.

October 25, 2012 8:13 pm

avatar

May I say WooHoo!

October 25, 2012 8:15 pm

avatar

I just heard that the Tigers were only shutout two times this year.  Amazing!

October 25, 2012 8:15 pm

avatar

yes, you may. congrats, tom. you’re halfway there. but forgive me if I exit quickly. don’t see much reason to watch the postgame.

October 25, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 thanks for a fun evening, Howard!

October 25, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

they’re horrible. they get to the series just to get swept. just like last time. fuck them.

October 25, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole great for bbq also….

October 25, 2012 8:39 pm

avatar

If you see this Johnny D go back to sleep.  No news here that you want to see.

October 27, 2012 2:49 pm

avatar

can we speed up the singing here, please. c’mon. some of us have to work in the morning.

October 27, 2012 4:55 pm

avatar

Watchin’ and workin’ at the same time………. Go Tiggers!

October 27, 2012 5:08 pm

avatar

scutaro 0-1. he stinks.

October 27, 2012 5:11 pm

avatar

posey 0-1. he stinks too. and once again, we have no giants fans here in a tie game.

October 27, 2012 5:14 pm

avatar

there goes the perfecto.

October 27, 2012 5:23 pm

avatar

there goes the no-hitter, and vogelsong making a lot of pitches.

October 27, 2012 5:27 pm

avatar

brilliantly turned? wtf. it’s prince fielder running. c’mon man. whatever. that sucks.

October 27, 2012 5:30 pm

avatar

and still no tom.

October 27, 2012 5:30 pm

avatar

no commish either, for that matter. I’m leaving at 7 my time, just fyi, so be here soon or be here alone.

October 27, 2012 5:30 pm

avatar

I was hoping the fat bastard Fielder would hit a homer so I could arrive with the Giants down in the linescore but I guess I’ll drop in when it’s still tied.

October 27, 2012 5:33 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo yeah, like I’m going to believe you were hoping to be down by three to start the game. nice try, though.

October 27, 2012 5:34 pm

avatar

gee, another unforced error by detroit. nice catch there.

October 27, 2012 5:37 pm

avatar

throw strikes, douche.

October 27, 2012 5:38 pm

avatar

sickening.

October 27, 2012 5:40 pm

avatar

another great play by the tigers. wow. this isn’t just a sweep. it’s a humiliation.

October 27, 2012 5:44 pm

avatar

Howard, take it out on me.  I’m worried for your dog.

October 27, 2012 5:45 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo my dog is more than safe. and you’re what, 400 miles out of reach. I’ll save my wrath for the tigers.

October 27, 2012 5:45 pm

avatar

and I’ll probably be gone by the time the commish gets here. this is pretty much of a waste of time.

October 27, 2012 5:46 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I know you love you pooch.  joking.

October 27, 2012 5:46 pm

avatar

G;s have three centerfielders out there.  All can cover ground.  It’s beautiful.  Just beautiful.

October 27, 2012 5:52 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 Your dog looks like a service dog.  Is she?

October 27, 2012 5:55 pm

avatar

huh? pence is a center fielder? he’s not even a right fielder.

October 27, 2012 5:55 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 disagree.  he covers a lot of ground.  he could easily be a CFer

October 27, 2012 5:55 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo nope.

October 27, 2012 5:55 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo go ahead and extend him. I’d love it.

October 27, 2012 5:56 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 hope they do.  they should.  RBI machine.

October 27, 2012 5:57 pm

avatar

horrible game, horrible series. nightmare all the way around.

October 27, 2012 5:57 pm

avatar

scutaro 0-2. he stinks.

October 27, 2012 6:01 pm

avatar

ooh, this is a scintilating interview. jeez.

October 27, 2012 6:04 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 wonderful game, wonderful series, a G’s fan’s daydream all the way around.

October 27, 2012 6:14 pm

avatar

detroit gets a second chance. lets see if they have anything in them.

October 27, 2012 6:15 pm

avatar

just what I expected. awful.

October 27, 2012 6:15 pm

avatar

13 people listening and not a word from any of the others?  is that an accurate count?

October 27, 2012 6:22 pm

avatar

really nobody’s listening. it’s just you and me. and commish will hear about it, trust me. but I’m going to dinner in about half an hour. will listen in the car and watch once I get there….not there will be any reason to

October 27, 2012 6:26 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo duh.

October 27, 2012 6:29 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 if you turn into a pumpkin at 7pm how you gonna fit in the car to drive any where?

October 27, 2012 6:33 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo small pumpkin, big front seat.

October 27, 2012 6:40 pm

avatar

oh good. tigers are setup for another dp.

October 27, 2012 6:50 pm

@Howard Cole
 I like it when we agree

oh man. and my wife’ll probably call just when cabrera gets to the plate….IF he gets to the plate….and then it’s dinner time.

October 27, 2012 6:57 pm

tigers could really use a hbp here.

October 27, 2012 6:59 pm

what a tough pitch to take

October 27, 2012 7:00 pm

avatar

90 pitches

October 27, 2012 7:00 pm

avatar

well this is essentially the entire series. if cabrera can’t do it, and they don’t score yet again, that’s it.

October 27, 2012 7:01 pm

the series is yours.

@rotarandy sorry? you are incredibly lucky. and what action? I didn’t see any action. I’m making no promises on tonight. might be here, might not.

I am 5 pts, shy of 500 deed some back-up later tonight….

@rotarandy for you, fine. but don’t count on much in the way of banter from me.

October 28, 2012 2:35 pm

avatar

Hi Howard. Just dropping by for a sec. Busy, busy, busy. But before it’s over, I just wanted to back up every single word you said up above. I’ve been saying (with my daughter posting it on Facebook w/ 10 likes so far) that if the Hated Ones were to play communist China in an actual World Series, I’d be rooting for the Chinese. And if they were playing the Taliban All-Star team, I’d have to think about it.

October 28, 2012 5:04 pm

@Howard Cole  @rotarandy
 them Giants are indeed multi-talented.  Even handy with a cork.  ;)

October 28, 2012 5:10 pm

avatar

@Eric Monson Well said, Eric, thanks. But I guess as long as they’re going to win anyway, we might as well get it out of the way tonight. I’m still hoping for a first-ever-in-history comeback from down 0-3. It’s mathematically possible, right?

October 28, 2012 5:11 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo  @rotarandy well for some, champagne is a performance enhancing drug, so it makes sense. go tigers!

October 28, 2012 5:11 pm

@Howard Cole
 I’m here, Howie.  and posting.  sheesk!

October 28, 2012 5:25 pm

@Tom in San Mateo you were hoping to get out to a quick lead, obviously.

October 28, 2012 5:27 pm

@Howard Cole
 of course, and I was here since before “Play Ball”

 The tigers can beat Cain.  they can beat any pitcher.

October 28, 2012 5:30 pm

Following his triple crown season of 1967, Carl Yastrzemski hit .400 in the World Series, on 10-25 hitting with three home runs.

October 28, 2012 5:33 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo how do we know that?

October 28, 2012 5:34 pm

avatar

memo to randy: the only way to get to 500 points before christmas, if not before april, is to post a good 10 or 15 times tonight. the ball is in your court.

October 28, 2012 5:35 pm

on the bright side, schertzer has four outs tonight.

October 28, 2012 5:38 pm

avatar

Gigantes Madera!

October 28, 2012 5:39 pm

avatar

in case it needs repeating, and it does, it is only because of ryan theriot’s absolutely uselessness that the giants saw the need for marco scutaro at all. in other words, if theriot had just been below average bad, or capable of hitting .260 with a .310 on base percentage, there would have been no scutaro, no division, no pennant and no championship. i’m just saying, it’s the revenge of the ex-dodgers. whereas the revenge of the ex-giant is juan uribe. and jason schmidt.

@rotarandy Nice Dylan referral……

October 28, 2012 5:49 pm

avatar

that’s a point for randy, as he tries to join the 500 home run club. in fact, why don’t you name as many as you can in separate comments. that’ll put you close to it right there. and don’t say you don’t know. you can name a few of them.

October 28, 2012 5:49 pm

panda can strikeout five times tonight and still win the mvp.

October 28, 2012 6:01 pm

avatar

I hate, really hate to say this, but are the Giants the 2012 version of the 60′s Dodgers?  Obviously not the overwhelming pitching of Koufax/Drysdale/Podres/Osteen, but decent enough and some clutch hitting.
 
Pitching always wins (plus crap hitting from Detroit)

October 28, 2012 6:01 pm

I miss baseball.

October 28, 2012 6:02 pm

Oh yay — Giants didn’t actually score.

October 28, 2012 6:02 pm

@The Commish
 and Alston was a good manager.  which the D’s don’t have today.

October 28, 2012 6:03 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo Alston was a great manager. And agreed, we don’t even have a good one.  But if we had Sandy , Big D, and Tommy Davis and Frank Howard, even Mattingly couldn’t blow it.

October 28, 2012 6:04 pm

Hey, stop adding points for Bud’s tally just for the hell of it.  Make him earn them.  With wit, wisdom, and wonderful baseball wonkiness.  I better not look back, somebody might be gaining on me.  :)

this is a good outline of imporant mlb dates. I didn’t realize that eligible players actually become free agents immediately after the world series, and can sign with any team on the sixth day. that’s new stuff.

it’s even worse that in a year we have to endure the giants winning, and it has nothing to do with the dodgers, we have to hear about 1966 over and over and over again.

@Tom in San Mateo Yeah, for sure, unfortunately. Worst is not so much rain and wind, but the loss of power.  And flooding of course. No rain/wind in NW NJ yet. But it’s coming. Tonight, all day Monday, most of day Tuesday.  Schools all closed. Mass transit shut down tonight.

October 28, 2012 6:16 pm

jeez, look at these numbers. nine and a half years and cabrera has 1800 hits, 320 homers, 1100 rbis and all kinds of other stuff. right up there with pujols…except quite a bit younger.

@The Commish you better hurry. it expires tomorrow, and you could spend a lot more. if you like the wood man, that is. if not, go ahead and pass. it’s great stuff.

October 28, 2012 7:26 pm

Now for something completely different — Colts win in OT today, now 4-3. Now I only expected them to win  6 or 7 this year, so this is already a good year.

October 28, 2012 7:27 pm

avatar

@rotarandy  @Howard Cole wow — great!

October 28, 2012 7:27 pm

And Pagan pulls a Loney.

October 28, 2012 7:28 pm

Boy, were they off-key or what?

October 28, 2012 7:30 pm

avatar

@The Commish
 HELLO

October 28, 2012 7:30 pm

avatar

@rotarandy ah, so that’s it. we need some dire straits lyric references. sometimes you’re the louisville slugger, sometimes you’re the ball seems apt.

October 28, 2012 7:30 pm

avatar

@The Commish dishonorable discharge. actually, I just did that between innings.

October 28, 2012 7:31 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 so far away from here ..your so far away from here

October 28, 2012 7:31 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole Only possibility is that they couldn’t hear themselves. Happened to McCartney on SNL.

October 28, 2012 7:31 pm

avatar

@The Commish that’s a worse diss than bochy or leyland pulling a mattingly.

October 28, 2012 7:32 pm

avatar

@The Commish

October 28, 2012 7:32 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole thanks!

October 28, 2012 7:32 pm

avatar

@The Commish which reminds me of the father guido sarducci bit outside paul’s house.

October 28, 2012 7:33 pm

avatar

cain still out there. wow.

October 28, 2012 7:33 pm

avatar

I’m still seeing randy at 496. anyone else seeing that?

October 28, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

by the way, where’s tom?

October 28, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 been at 498 for ever here

October 28, 2012 7:37 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 you got 1120

October 28, 2012 7:38 pm

avatar

well there was no way dotel was going to pitch well into a second inning, even though he only went a third.

October 28, 2012 7:41 pm

avatar

panda’s gonna ace the whole thing right here.

October 28, 2012 7:42 pm

511 mel ott.

October 28, 2012 7:43 pm

vinny would have a field day with that rundown.

nice hair, marco.

October 28, 2012 7:45 pm

avatar

i’m handing the 500 club to randy on a silver platter. all he has to do it cut, paste and add a lyric of his choice.

October 28, 2012 7:45 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 I show 510  did two posts get by me??

October 28, 2012 7:45 pm

avatar

@rotarandy you got 496, unless a couple people come to your defense. I’m pretty sure that’s what it is. but maybe we’ll have a game tomorrw.

October 28, 2012 7:47 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 keep the club but I will take the silver,,,

October 28, 2012 7:47 pm

avatar

I take that back about dotel. that’s the highlight of his career right there.

October 28, 2012 7:48 pm

avatar

@rotarandy it’s fake silver, actually. reynolds wrap, to be precise.

October 28, 2012 7:50 pm

avatar

tom gone. tom can’t handle the truth.

October 28, 2012 7:52 pm

avatar

did we lose commish too? sheesh.

October 28, 2012 7:52 pm

avatar

ted williams, willie mccovery and frank thomas. 521. although it doesn’t seem right having thomas right there.

October 28, 2012 7:53 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 my point totals and comments totals are different…

October 28, 2012 7:55 pm

avatar

good at bat. way to start the inning.

October 28, 2012 7:56 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 498 and 521

October 28, 2012 7:56 pm

avatar

“most feared hitter in the game.” buck needs a couple new lines.

October 28, 2012 7:56 pm

avatar

how in the world can bochy leave aftedt in here? wow.

October 28, 2012 7:57 pm

avatar

doesn’t matter that fielder’s up next. he’s got a better lefty in lopez anyway.

October 28, 2012 7:57 pm

avatar

bleep

October 28, 2012 7:57 pm

avatar

fielder couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat.

October 28, 2012 7:59 pm

avatar

October 28, 2012 8:02 pm

avatar

October 28, 2012 8:03 pm

avatar

October 28, 2012 8:03 pm

avatar

@rotarandy 542 points gets you a dirt from my cleats. the real prizes start at 555.

October 28, 2012 8:04 pm

October 28, 2012 8:06 pm

avatar

October 28, 2012 8:07 pm

avatar

October 28, 2012 8:14 pm

avatar

did you see that shot of 10,000 giants fans waiting to celebrate? oh man, can we please send them home unhappy please. drunk, but unhappy.

October 28, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

October 28, 2012 8:31 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 wow this just showed 15 minutes after you posted…

October 28, 2012 8:32 pm

avatar

@rotarandy can it be both?

October 28, 2012 8:34 pm

avatar

main squeeze just went walking, tired of waiting for the game to end.

October 28, 2012 8:34 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 my livefyre was in some zone for 25 minutes ..your posts were hidden..wtf

October 28, 2012 8:35 pm

avatar

@rotarandy it’s just as well. this thing is over. and bleeping a, scutaro is going to get the series winning hit.

October 28, 2012 8:39 pm

avatar

here we go. this is it, folks.

October 28, 2012 8:39 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole
 even my wife is wondering why  that outfeilder did not dive for ball

October 28, 2012 8:40 pm

avatar

@rotarandy mine doesn’t care.

October 28, 2012 8:41 pm

avatar

Can’t stand watching this alone.

October 28, 2012 8:43 pm

avatar

@dodgerblueyes I can’t stand it at all!!!

October 28, 2012 8:44 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole Well, that too.  But I left the pub I was at so I could get away from the Jints fans.

October 28, 2012 8:44 pm

avatar

free agency starts in five minutes. so at least there’s that.

October 28, 2012 8:45 pm

avatar

Howard, you’re right about theriot being another ex-Dodger having an impact.

October 28, 2012 8:45 pm

avatar

@dodgerblueyes smart!

October 28, 2012 8:45 pm

avatar

@eppis1 I never said that. he’s horrible. piece of crap.

October 28, 2012 8:45 pm

avatar

Just glad I don’t have to see the worst beard in baseball closing it out.

October 28, 2012 8:46 pm

avatar

we might as well trot out the “without a murmur of protest” card right now.

October 28, 2012 8:46 pm

avatar

@eppis1 Second worst.

October 28, 2012 8:46 pm

avatar

why these guys even bother to bring a bat to the plate is beyond me. might as well be swinging pencils up there.

October 28, 2012 8:47 pm

avatar

it would be fitting for cabrera to get on somehow and then have fielder make the last out.

October 28, 2012 8:48 pm

avatar

Really?  There has to be a John 3:16 sign–what is this, a football game?

October 28, 2012 8:49 pm

avatar

@dodgerblueyes if only.

October 28, 2012 8:50 pm

avatar

Where’s Dancing Barry when we need him?

October 28, 2012 8:50 pm

avatar

BOOOOO

October 28, 2012 8:50 pm

avatar

It’s the end of the world as we know it.

October 28, 2012 8:51 pm

avatar

sickening.

October 28, 2012 8:51 pm

avatar

@dodgerblueyes
 we needed you earlier

October 28, 2012 8:51 pm

avatar

@rotarandy Sorry :(

October 28, 2012 8:52 pm

@eppis1 at jacopos.

Oh, the humanity.

October 28, 2012 8:53 pm

I liked last year’s ending better.

October 28, 2012 8:53 pm

avatar

Won’t have to listen to Buck & McCarver for a long time. That’s the bright spot in a dismal series. Thanks to you Howard, for this forum. I enjoyed it.

October 28, 2012 8:58 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole Funny. I should have said Crashing Barry.

October 28, 2012 9:09 pm

avatar

Go Lakers.

October 28, 2012 9:11 pm

@Eric Monson lakers are going to be horrible. go dodgers. they’ll have more wins by the end of the nba season than the lakers do.

October 28, 2012 9:24 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole Well, go Dodgers obviously! But you really think the Lakers will be horrible? I don’t. I don’t think they’ll be 82-0 like some of the idiots I hear, but I think by season’s end they’ll be in the mix for the title. Anyway, whatever the Lakers’ win total, I certainly hope the Dodgers have more by the end of June.
