Next 8 games predictions

I think the Giants will go 3-5 over the next 8 games.

I'm basing that on my complete 8ull$hit analysis of probable pitching matchups:

ortiz v. duke (likely loss)

- The Pirates owned us last year, and Zuke is their dude. Hopefully Russ surprises.

zito v. armas (likely win)

- Armas isn't all that, and Zito has to start clicking at some point.

cain v. snell (likely tossup)

- I'm worried about this one, because of aforementioned Pirates ownage and Snell's stuff.

morris v. francis (likely tossup)

- Morris has done well enough to earn a tossup in what I would have called a likely loss last year.

lowry v. hirsch (likely tossup)

- Honestly, I think Hirsch will win out, but Lowry's pitched well, so we'll see.

ortiz v. reyes (likely loss)

- Don't know much about Reyes, but he's got to be better, on paper at least, than Ortiz.

zito v. wells (likely tossup)

- Kip Wells is pretty good, right?

cain v. looper (likely win)

- Cain, Cain, he's our man, if he can't do it, we need an offense!

So I got 2 likely wins, 2 likely losses, and 4 tossups. Because the offenses that we'll be facing are better in general than the Padres' and the Dodgers', I'm saying 1-3 on the tossups, 3-5 overall.
