    It’s a double whammy losing those games to the Pirates because it helps the Pirates’ Wild Card chances. The Giants only have a 3-game safety net in the Wild Card race.

    Even Brisbee at McCovey Chronicles is despairing:
    “I’m running out of ideas on how to frame another stupid loss.”

    I imagine that tomorrow’s thread will simply be ‘suck’

    Someone who should definitely bunt more often is…Belt. The shift hurts him, but if he burned it a half dozen times teams might thing twice about it.
    Last week he was up with a man on 1b, and I thought this was perfect time for one. Then he homered. And given the predilection for HRs at the expense of making contact and players today being OK with striking out,
    that’s the issue—would you rather he swung away or bunted?

    But, with one guy on left side of IF and a RHP falling off to the right, you could draw a triangle btw those 2 defenders and put the ball anywhere near farthest point, Belt makes 1b without a throw. It doesn’t even have to die, just roll far enough away from “SS toward the line.
    And it’s a line drive in the scorebook.

      I agree. Belt only has to “block” an outside pitch to the left side and he has a single. A half block swing down the LF line and he’s got a double…

    I still don’t think this team sucks, per se, even though their recent play certainly does. There just seems to be something *wrong* with the team, as a whole. Weird vibes, voodoo doll pins, some strange interactions in the clubhouse…. Nearly impossible to explain the Jekyll/Hyde performance up til now. You don’t just suddenly forget how to play the game, or how to win.
