Post-game thread: Giants lose, bore us again

Tim Lincecum didn’t always miss by much, but he missed a lot. The Giants were able to hit a few well-struck balls, but they were always right at someone. The Braves were able to get hits with two outs, and the Giants weren’t. The Braves were able to get hits with two strikes, and the Giants weren’t.

Baseball’d.

For two games, the Braves have looked like the better team. Part of that is because they’ve been able to SCORE SOME FREAKING RUNS, whereas the Giants have not. There’s no moral to take away from this. No big-picture panorama to paint. Tim Lincecum wasn’t going to challenge Bob Gibson’s line from 1968 because he was going to have games like this.

...

I like it when Buster Posey starts, even though I understand that he needs rest occasionally.

...

Tim Lincecum is better when he doesn’t walk six hitters.

...

It amused me when Eric Hinske was thrown out at second.

....

Fine, you come up with something memorable or poignant about this game.
