The Morning After



Sigh.

We've all (or at least most of us) had a night's sleep to mull over yesterday's bombshell.  Whether you hated the trade or were "meh" about it (the two seemingly prevailing opinions), what's done is done.  When the season is over, we can all hope that Sabean's contract isn't extended, yell about how promising Alderson is and what a bum Sanchez is, yada yada yada.

But today is July 30.  There are still two more months of baseball left.  The Giants, who most of us hardly gave us a chance to make it to .500, have currently retaken the wild card lead, even after a 3-6 road trip against the powerhouse franchises of Pittsburgh, Colorado, and Atlanta.  And like the trades Sabean made or not, two positions of need were upgraded, however moderately it may have been.  And for the most part, we probably won't have to see the likes of Burriss, Velez, and Aurilia anymore.  Zito is actually pitching well, and we have two legitimate Cy Young candidates.  The bullpen is pitching light years better than it has in many years.  Not to mention, WE JUST SAW A NO HITTER!

We have all winter and most of spring to throw down hate on the organization.  For now, let's enjoy baseball for the few more months we have, because in February we will be wishing we could watch a 10-inning, 1-0 game just to get our baseball fix.

Giants baseball is exciting again, folks!  Don't let the hurt of losing Alderson ruin this season for you, and don't let the pessimism that so easily entangles Giants fans drag you down.  It's a new day of baseball, with new, better players on the team.  Enjoy it!
