Seven games back. Just seven. If you kinda squint, just a little bit, and hold the season up to the right light.... The team we are ostensibly chasing is looking into the acquisition of Sir Sidney Ponson, who is a shell of the pitcher he was as a Giant. Brrrrr.
I like to pretend we were three games out, and then got swept in a four-game series, now hoping to claw back into contention. Also, I like to pretend this is a good team. If the team is seven games back at the deadline, we'll be seeing a Jason Jennings-type come over. Who knows what portion of the future we would have to give up. Maybe we can look into getting this Jerome Williams kid. He's been pretty good over his last few starts.
