MT: Kaepernick Throwing Out First Pitch

Posted by Scott Kegley on June 21, 2013 – 8:51 AM

062113-kap-header

Colin Kaepernick, a former 43rd round draft pick of the Chicago Cubs in 2009, returns to the mound tonight. This time, Kaepernick will not be facing any batters, throwing out the first pitch at the San Francisco Giants game as they take on the Miami Marlins. The game begins at 7:15 p.m.

49ers.com will be there with Kaepernick so make sure to stay tuned to @49ers on Twitter and Instagram for updates.

More 49ers headlines can be found in today’s morning tailgate.

CSNBayArea.com’s Matt Maiocco spoke with wide receiver Quinton Patton, who doesn’t want to put any limits on what he can accomplish in his first NFL season.

“I don’t like the word ‘rookie,’ ” Patton said. “I’m a ballplayer. I’m trying to be the best, and everything else is for the coaches to decide.”

CLIP OF THE DAY

With the offseason coming to a close, Taylor Price and I discussed several story lines, including Justin Smith’s two-year contract extension and which wide receivers have impressed in Crabtree’s absence.


TWEET ABOUT IT

The 49ers offices will be closed next week and the 49ers.com crew will be getting a brief break with training camp approaching. The Morning Tailgate blog will resume July 1.

    I got to play against him in High School at Turlock. I had no idea that I was going to be going to go against a future super bowl san francisco 49er quarterback at the time. He, by far, had the strongest arm I ever went up against. I, of course, struck out, but felt ok because I made contact before that haha. Now I’m just glad to be rooting for him and the rest of the niner squad!

    if it was alex smith throwing out the first pitch he would
    a: bounce it before homeplate
    b: throw it over the dugout to avoid a sack
    c: throw a knuckle ball so ugly noone could hit it
    d:suffer a concussion

    Aside from the fact that he was joking, there was little reason for me to delve into the theoretical baseball-throwing mechanics of a football player. I’m too busy dealing with illegitimate comments favoring Kaepernick the quarterback to worry about the pitcher from an alternate universe. And frankly, this week I’ve been a little too busy even for the former.

    Borrowing from another user who pointed out that “Kaepernick is our teams QB and there nothing you can do to change that,” some users don’t find it sufficient to have Alex Smith in their rearview mirror; now they have to make ridiculous statements about celebrity first pitches. If you think throwing a baseball over a plate is like throwing a football to a receiver, you know very little about either sport.

    rjdniner, if I didn’t point out on most occasions how Alex Smith was the most underrated player on the 49ers’ team, six months from now everyone would be wondering who this phatalerror was that supposedly knew in advance that the 49ers were heading for a decline due to their hasty switching of quarterbacks. And when Kaepernick can read a defense just as well as he can throw a baseball to a standing target or a football to a moving target, I will change my opinion about him.

  21. By rjdniner on Jun 22, 2013 | Reply

    He was throwing that ball pretty good against a so called good defense that the Bears had and yes he got picked off during other games so did Alex, so you think that the team is going to decline because of a QB switch, we all thought that Harbaugh was nuts for not putting Alex back in, it sounds like your going to jump ship because of a decision that you didn’t like and have been CRYING ABOUT IT FROM DAY ONE. And I do believe Alex did the same thing last year for one of the GAINTS games…

    he brought up an interesting question tho, who is the current 49ers most underated player ?………and it could well change by the end of the year obviously…..if you asked me i would say frank gore is now and has always been super underated, and hes gonna use that talk about him being old, to prove people wrong this year again

    And we all know why he had a good year it was those 5 guys upfront and hopefully they all stay healthy but if something does we have a great coaching staff and GM that can plug in a person like Snyder or Kilgore .my question concerning super bowl jersey’s is why doesn’t Crabtree have s a super bowl emblem on his ?

    “And we all know why he had a good year it was those 5 guys upfront and hopefully they all stay healthy but if something does we have a great coaching staff and GM that can plug in a person like Snyder or Kilgore .”

    Linemen are important, but you made no mention of the quarterback, or of the decline in Gore’s production when the quarterbacks were switched. The fact is, even if you have an elite runningback, an excellent line that has to account for eight defenders in the box is not going to win as many battles up front as the same line would when accounting for seven defenders.

    So give due credit to the linemen, give due credit to Gore, and give due credit to the quarterback that kept the eighth man out of the box more often.

    The simple movement of Alex Smith from one team with an excellent runningback and offensive run-blocking line to another team with the same should provide a previously unequaled comparison of what happens to the personnel of two teams when an inferior quarterback (Matt C.) is replaced by an excellent quarterback (Alex Smith), whose vacated position is in turn filled by an unknown commodity. I hope everyone on both the Chiefs and the 49ers stays healthy for the sake of settling a debate that reaches far outside the scope of either team.

    wow interesting, but dont forget playcalling is a factor, you must have balance, obi one, or you will never be able to control the force, (haha funny), but seriously, did you just compare the cheifs and niners as equal in terms of running an blocking thus making for an equal comparison for the up coming season ?

    and ur putting a 2-14 team the chiefs on a pedastal (i think) and you really cant compare 2 teams statisticlly that have opposite strength of schedule(oppents are much weaker) but if you wanna make that comparison if it will finally set this argument to rest im all for it, lets just see who has a better year frank gore vs chiefs #1 rb and kaep vs alex who has better year ?

    the chiefs best friend right now is the fact there is nothing for teams to look at to prepar for , can they ride that to an 8-8 season,(lets hope for our draft position)

    “and if we put up better numbers than the cheifs do all the kaep bashers/doubters will have to be [quiet]?”

    If “better numbers than the [Chiefs]” means the 49ers (a substantially better team with a two year track record of winning games on both sides of the ball) get significantly more wins than the Chiefs (a now-underrated team with individual talent held back by an ill-advised long-term signing of Matt C., and more importantly, terrible coaching), then despite the fact that football is a team game and quarterbacks do not single-handedly win games, one would have to acknowledge that Colin Kaepernick might be one of the players making a difference for the 49ers, and that Alex Smith was not good enough to make a difference for the Chiefs.

    Injuries notwithstanding.

    “I would not say waiting a year and a half is a “hasty” decision. Just goes to show your ignorance!!”

    I’m ignorant? It’s obvious in retrospect that Jim Harbaugh was biding his time to put in ‘his guy’. That does not change the fact that Kaepernick was an unproven commodity *after* he beat up on a tired Chicago defense that got no help from their backup quarterback, after his offense scored fewer points than the Saints’ offense, and after his offense got absolutely smothered by the Rams, later the Seahawks, and finally, the Ravens. Harbaugh obviously liked Kaepernick’s upside, but with every upside comes a downside. Failure to acknowledge that Kaepernick has yet to prove that he can win out of the pocket on even terms against another team is gross ignorance.

    The only gross ignorance is coming from Fatal Error. He is clueless as to Harbaughs motivations and his huge character flaw of desiring to be viewed and to think of himself as the “GREAT ALL KNOWING” is seriously clouded his logic. To go on and on with the same old tune over and over again shows an incredible obsessive loser who is consumed with feeling superior on a blog. Its fine to like Smith but what is the point except to chase the almighty “I told you so”? Its pathetic…I am not interested in that regardless of what happens. I am interested in my SF49ERS winning the SB. PERIOD. It is not about me & what I predicted, it is about my team. You will never get that kind of loyalty and dedication of a team because you a loser who is desperately clinging on to some little personal victory in a pathetic life which obviously means wanting to see more out of KC than SF. You pathetic in everyway.

    So tell me, Mr. Self-titled Alpha Male, what is shown when you, who have conclusively identified me as an ‘obsessive loser consumed with feeling superior on a blog’ and an “Omega Male”, make such a point of demonstrating your own superiority on said blog? Do you have to push the bar down that far to get over it? And did that enable you to make an argument against what I said?

    Your own condemnation of me in this manner has proved self-condemning. If I am obsessive, you are moreso. And once again, you took the low road, bashing my perceived character flaws, while providing nothing in response to the substance of my argument. Perhaps a mirror is in order.

    “im just gonna say you misspoke there cuz u cant compare [between the 49ers and the Chiefs] our line and running back to theirs unless u want to”

    First, I am not saying Jamaal Charles is better than Frank Gore because they are fundamentally different types of runningbacks. Gore is more versatile and powerful and a better every-down runningback, while Charles is one of the league’s best ‘home run’ rushers (behind Adrian Peterson). As for the offensive lines, the Chiefs’ players are no slouches.

    https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2012/10/24/offensive-line-rankings/

    According to this source, the 49ers’ offensive line was the best in the league after half of the 2012 season, while the Chiefs were second-best. Interestingly, the Chiefs had a better ranking in protection blocking, which bodes well for Alex Smith (in fact, for the type of quarterback Smith is, the Chiefs’ line is a better match for the Chiefs than the 49ers’ would be).

    So in summation, they do compare closely. The 49ers have a better defense than the Chiefs do (although the Chiefs’ secondary is less suspect), but following Crabtree’s injury, the Chiefs may very well have the better offense with Dwayne Bowe and Jon Baldwin on the outside, and all of the necessary parts in between. The only thing I wouldn’t vouch for is the Chiefs’ depth at any offensive position.

    No, because winning quarterbacks don’t necessarily put up better statistics than losing quarterbacks, and the same thing applies to runningbacks.

    The win/loss column matters most. Anything beyond that is for the player agents and the fans of non-Super Bowl winning teams to quibble about. If injuries end up being a big factor in either team’s year, the impact (or lack of such) will be obvious and readily noticeable.

    “so lets make a friendly little bet shall we kaep vs alex which team or qb does better this year for……..bragging rights ?”

    Kaepernick will probably set some sort of rushing record (unless he gets injured), so I really don’t care for a stats-based concept. It’s great for fantasy football, but lousy for real life.

    Originally I pegged the 49ers at a 10-6 record and missing the playoffs. Then I saw their schedule, and became even less optimistic. That was before the Crabtree injury, which by then changed nothing. I expect the 49ers to be a .500 team in the NFL’s toughest division. My NFC playoff team guesses from 1st to 6th are: Packers, Falcons, Seahawks, Cowboys, Saints, Lions.

    The Chiefs play in three-tiered division in which they alone are in the second tier. Barring injury, they are competitive with every team on their schedule. The AFC playoff picture will likely look like Patriots, Broncos, Bengals, Texans, Colts, Chiefs.

    The bet then is (barring three games missed for Kaepernick due to an injury resulting from a scramble or run, or three games missed for Smith due to any injury): The Chiefs get a Wild Card berth or better, and the 49ers at best get a Wild Card berth. If I get either one of those wrong, I was wrong about Smith or Kaepernick.

    Bragging Rights is the perfect stake.

    I hope no one mistakes my pessimism about the 49ers as an act of rooting against them. I want them to make the Super Bowl. It just that in the ‘step backward to take two steps forward’ quarterback switch, I don’t expect the 49ers to have the necessary forward momentum to win critical games against NFC West opponents.

    In the perfect world, every fan’s favorite team wins the Super Bowl later that year. It’s hard to do a Super Bowl bracket when the competing teams are uncertain. Injuries become a greater factor in the post-season, but if everyone everywhere should stay healthy (or out of jail in the case of the Patriots’ Aaron Hernandez), in 2013 it would end up being the Seahawks losing to the Patriots.

    1 they had a weaker shcedule last year then most teams in the playoffs
    2 they only made the playyofs last year cuz of a blown call by replacement refs monday nite vs gb
    3 new rules this year will have the refs looking for the” sherman tate” type hits they are soo proud of
    4 they dont do well when teams think they are good only when they are overlooked they can win
    5 they cant win on the road and wont have homefield in playoffs if they make it
    6 roaches always avoid the lights being put on them

    “1 they [the Seahawks] had a weaker shcedule last year then most teams in the playoffs”

    They also started off the year with a rookie quarterback and a vanilla offense. Then they went on to beat two of the teams that Kaepernick was so highly commended for beating (and without asterisks: The Seahawks were gifted half of the touchdowns the 49ers got in their matchup, and the Seahawks played against Jay Cutler’s Bears, not Jason Campbell’s). They almost beat the Falcons in the playoffs, with the win being determined by a last-minute field goal. Anytime you have two teams from the same division contending for a spot in the Conference Championship, you have to acknowledge the strength of that division.

    The Fail Mary was quite possibly the reason the Seahawks were in the playoffs last year, but then, were it not for the Fail Mary, the 49ers wouldn’t have gotten the first week playoff bye because they would have been a half game behind the Packers, and if they had won in the Wild Card Playoff (despite Justin Smith and Aldon Smith getting no badly needed rest from their injuries), they would have ended up playing at Lambeau Field. You could make an argument that the 49ers never get to the Conference Championship with Kaepernick without the Fail Mary.

    Instead, let’s argue the reality of the situation in Seattle: They have an established team that has had a recent history of “substance abuse” issues, but after that, they have more recent playoff appearances, and a more balanced defense. They’re at the top of the NFL.com Power Poll now (above the 49ers), and while it’s hard to guess who will win it all before a single game is played, it’s hard finding something you can say to the 49ers’ credit that you can’t say about the Seahawks (except that performance-enhancing drugs don’t seem to be turning up in San Francisco bloodstreams).

    Correction: “The Seahawks were gifted half of the touchdowns the 49ers got in their matchup” should read, “The Seahawks were gifted half of the turnovers the 49ers got in their matchup.”

    “how bout this one we have a well coached and disaplined team… say that about seatle”

    How would you begin to attack the coaching and discipline of the Seahawks? (We’ve already acknowledged that some of the players were caught violating the league substance abuse policy, but what would you say in addition to that?)

    The 49ers had a 3-0 record against Carroll when Harbaugh was coaching. Then the team made a change. Now the record is 3-1. There’s more than coaching involved here, but I would say that Carroll at least knew how to coach against the 49ers in their present form.

    phatalarror why is it that you make a big production about things that happened last season ?

    “phatalarror why is it that you make a big production about things that happened last season ?”

    Because what happened last season is relevant to today.

    I’ll reverse the question: Why does it seem to you such a small thing that Kaepernick had so much to learn at the end of last season?

    Of course, we’re keeping this discussion within the scope of the recreational activity of watching football. It happens to be my hobby. If my involvement in a discussion about football should ‘ruin someone’s morning’ (as bow53 alleges), perhaps that person should give their attention to a hobby that will occasionally lead to disappointment they can cope with.

    The meaning of my life is unchanged whether I post here or not; I just do it for the intellectual exercise and for something to do. Don’t mistake my frequent posts for some unbalanced interest in professional sports, as in most cases I’m commenting on the users here as much as I’m commenting on the players there. I’ve never been one to jump up and down and swear and curse because the team I rooted for lost; I don’t give such free rein to my emotions because it is in the end my recreation, not my life. It is however interesting to me to observe the evidence of how greatly people’s attitudes are shaped by the media.

    You suggest that your opinion to the contrary had great merit, but then you refuse to put forth the effort to express it, and attribute that lack of effort to me.

    Then you had the gall to suggest your non-answer baited me.

    I actually thought you were better than that, but you took the easy way out and pandered to the trolls. Disappointing.

    “Why should I put the effort in just to please you REALLY?”

    I’m not asking for that. I don’t need that. I’d just appreciate that if someone is going to object to something I say here in the manner you did, namely:

    “I was going to post a comment but after reading the most recent posts I can’t do it because am thinking what a waste it would be and just started to laugh a little when I read phatla error posts …….”

    …that you would either back up what you said, or else not make the objection in the first place. We’ve disagreed until now, but I haven’t exactly been disrespectful toward you.

    There’s a good four users here who will throw epithets at me all day here, but they have no other resort because every time they tried to argue with me, their arguments got utterly shut down. I can tell from what you’ve written until now that you’re better than that (and know about football today double the sum of knowledge those four will know about football throughout their lives). Don’t devalue what you know by holding it back in favor of petty insults.

    So you’re saying that these other four users don’t know anything about the game of football? And there user names are, and you’re saying you know everything there is to know about the game at the pro level are you serious. It sounds like you want someone to agree with you about your views when it comes to the sport we all love. With no objections REALLY ……

    Ah, I never said this. Not once. Nor was it a backhanded compliment that I gave you earlier, as if I condescended to tell you that you know almost as much as I do.

    What I do or don’t know isn’t really pertinent to this discussion.

    rjdniner asked what four users I was talking about. He can safely deduce that based on your reaction, you knew I was talking about you. Now there’s only three left, and they’ll speak up soon enough to be recognized.

    You didn’t read what I wrote correctly. “Nor was it… as if…” means I never meant to compare my knowledge to yours.

    It’s too bad we’re beyond the point where I get the benefit of doubt so that if you incorrectly read something I wrote, you conclude I’m writing with an arrogant tone.
