Finally, no longer in sole possession of first place. We’ve been alone at the top since May 15th. This slow, painful slide back to the masses was inevitable and possibly just what the team needs. We haven’t played like a first place team in over a month. Maybe not actually being one (alone) will be what finally awakens these slumbering Giants.
It is PATHETIC that the Giants have coughed up this lead with the Dodgers playing barely above average AND without Clayton Kershaw. But you get what you deserve, ultimately, across the course of 162.
Span is mercifully being rested today. Nunie at the top. Blanco ensuring 2 pitchers hitting in a row at the bottom.
