The Morning After: Giants Magic Number Down to 3

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm starting to get nervous, not just the normal nervousness that comes from being a fan of the Giants and dealing with all the torture, but the nervousness that comes from being a Giants fan with hope. Lincecum gutted his way through 7 innings last night even though he had a cold and didn't have his best stuff, but only gave up 1 run, and the Giants on-again off-again offense got another go-ahead homerun from Pat Burrell. In other years, the Giants lose that game, maybe 1-0, or maybe it all unravels and they lose 7-0, but not this year; this year, they seem to win more of those games than they lose and that makes me kind of nervous. 

So last night's game: 

Buster Posey took another 0-fer, but has made some loud outs over the last few games including sending one to the wall in right that's out of most parks, is there any cause for concern?

Pablo Sandoval had another hit, and it was on a breaking ball that looked to be out of the zone, should Bochy stick with him instead of Fontenot?

Jose Guillen looked awful at the plate, flailing away at a breaking balls out of the zone, any chance Bochy ever decides to sit his grizzly, gamery veteran ass in favor of Ross for the rest of the way?

How awesome is Timmeh, and how much does the fact that he's going to lead the league for the 3rd year in a row in SO's foretell of things to come?

Has Mat Latos replaced Alex Rodriguez as the whiniest player in baseball?

Talk amongst yourselves.
