One Game at a Time…….
The post-all star game part of the season begins tonight. It’s also the first Friday Night concert at Del Mar with the B-52′s playing after the races. I know Diggity likes to hit those epic Friday night shows now and again. I’m gonna bet he sees Sammy Hagar on July 27th. Just a guess……
But back to baseball. Have any of you noticed that we aren’t seeing as many Giants jersey’s in road parks as we were at the beginning of the season? Have the band wagon jumpers abandoned the wagon? I, for one, would be fine with that. At first it was kinda cool. It was like waking up one day and finding out you had a bunch of new friends. But these new friends knew nothing of the knowing dude head nod. And with that, I was pretty much done with them.
So here we sit, 8 games under .500. Someone asked me how far out we are in the wild card and I said I had no idea. If we sweep Arizona we’ll be 3.5 games out and that would feel rad. So I don’t really care what our record is or that the newbie fans have jumped ship. We just have to take it one game at a time and hope that someone in the LU besides Buster starts hitting the ball. We have to hope that Pence and Pablo took advantage of the break and recovered from whatever was ailing them. I’m actually cautiously optimistic that Sandoval has a decent rest of the season (assuming he doesn’t injure himself again).
This is actually a pretty good place to be (as a fan). I’ve got no expectations so there’s nothing the team can do to disappoint me. It’s the middle of Summer and what’s better than watching baseball and the races at Del Mar? Hmmmmm…. I’m gonna say “nothing.”
