The Last 46: A Statistical Look

 

This is a fair, numbers-based, analysis of our remaining schedule. This is not an optimistic, “OH MY GOSH WE’RE CONTENDERS” rant.

The Remaining Schedule

The Numbers:

Pittsburgh (53-64): 3 games

Florida (62-56): 3 games

Cincinnati (52-67): 3 games

Houston (58-59): 4 games

Atlanta (55-63): 4 games

Da Bums (58-59): 6 games

D-Bags (60-58): 7 games

Padres (46-72): 7 games

Colorado (53-67): 9 games

 

Combined Records of Above Teams: 497- 565 OR .468

46 games left total

25 road games

21 home games

29 divisional games (63%)

Games against current .500 or better teams: 10 (7 against the Snakes) (22%)

Florida is 6 over .500 and D-Bags are only 2 over .500

 

The Horrifying Truth: Only one of these godawful teams is worse than our Giants.

Good Omen: We are currently 21-22 against NL West teams, who make up 63% of our remaining schedule.

Other Good Omen: We have won 3 straight series and 6/9, all against teams we will be playing in the next 46 games.

Bad Omen: We currently pay Jose Castillo to play baseball.

Meh Omen: We are 9 games out. Make of it what you will.

My Opinion: This is a cakewalk schedule. However, we are not very good. I believe we have an outside shot to contend, but I would be shocked if it happened. Stunned, like the French relay team last night.

Can we contend? Do we have any chance at all? Discuss…
