Post-game thread: Giants turn blowout into taut, exciting game just for our benefit

How in the world was that game only three hours? That game had more runs than the bathroom next to a concession stand in a Florida stadium.

Ahem.

Uh. Maybe you just don’t get the context of the joke, and that’s why you aren’t laughing. It’s really funny.

See, we can joke about the game now. If the Giants had gone on to lose a game in which they had a seven-run lead, things would have been just a wee bit more dour around here. As is, the blown save was worth setting up the walk-off win. Right? Right?

And though it was Andres Torres getting the biggest hits -- again -- special credit goes out to three of the more maligned players on the team. The tenth-inning rally doesn’t start without Aaron Rowand, Edgar Renteria, and Nate Schierholtz. Rowand and Renteria did it for the second straight game, even. It’s a little silly to hope that busted veterans in their mid-30s suddenly rediscover what once made them good...but it would be pretty freaking cool. I’ll eat some crow, alright. I’ll put it in my hat that I’ll eat. A crowhat sandwich. And it will be delicious. Here’s hoping.

Still: Andres Torres. Good gravy. He’s turning in one of the most unexpected seasons of all time. Of all time.

Remember how frustrating it was last year to watch the scoreboard and note that Colorado was pulling yet another win out of their nether regions? That team is us right now, at least for the past month. It’s been fun.
