A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

I Have a Giant Dukkha

This thread is written by Edd. I don’t understand the title either. đŸ™‚

 

As most of you know, I am mainly a fan, the minutia of insider understandings or statistical solutions are a bridge too far for this Giants’ fan, a Polly Anna fan that loves this team and this game. I do know baseball fairly well with decent gut feeling (can I self-promote by saying I am reigning champion of the Flap Fantasy League?). Mostly I get great satisfaction out of watching my team play. For the last 3 years there has been wonderful surprises in watching this team win-win-win; most recently the inside-the-park home run win by Angel Pa-Gone. Basking can be had by all.

With a great manager and some crafty moves by the front office I have a team that can win, especially when that team is firing on all cylinders. The complete domination of Detroit during the 2012 World Serious proved that they can beat any team anywhere.

But for the last recent weeks (my god, it’s been going on for too long now) those cylinders have been going phut. Spark-plugs (hitting), errors (timing), delivery (the petrol of pitching) and a general in-cohesiveness makes this team play like Houston on a bad night. And yet, my heart and hope clings to the thought that this is truly an anomaly; still the same team, like cream, ready to rise to the top.

Today we are in the Archway City playing a disdained rival who wants our ass and may well feed it to us. This year I feared the Braves more, but, thanks to the Upton brothers, Saint Louie may be the team I would really love to beat.

Yadda, yadda, it is only one series, what the fuck is up with Cain, how many errors can a good fielding team make, where do we go from here? If ever there was a miracle additive that could make those cylinders fire all at once I want to see it now.

    Fuck fofuck’s;sake. Missed both games. Thank God. The wheels seemed to have come off when Pagan went down. 2-5 since then? Blanco’s ice cold., Pablo’s on the shelf, Pitching’s a shambles. Could be the return of the dreaded June swoon.

    The pitching is becoming a critical matter. No one else is running away, but sinking to ,500 ain’t gonna get us anywhere.

      Me too. Next morning here . . . Glad I spent time with a wonderful lady over the weekend instead of the depressing doubleheader fiasco.
