Throw Another Loss on the Fire
Yesterday’s game was irritating because it was one of those games where you could just stop and notice, in nearly about any inning you wanted, that it wasn’t going to be our night. Smarge has a 47 pitch first inning. Longer than any inning for any Giant this year. The longest of his career. All the contact, all the dinky dunky bullshit. Sometimes the ball doesn’t bounce your way. Sometimes you can’t get the ball to miss bats.
And then there’s this: we still have the WORST record since the break (15-28) worse than any other team in the major leagues. THE WORST. You know all those teams who are out of it, who’s fans gave up a long time ago? The Braves, the Brewers, etc? Those teams have been better than us for going into a second month now.
Trip on that and then realize this stretch run might be a mirage…….
