I hate that if the Giants could have fielded a decent offense, they'd be right in the middle of a playoff chance. I hate that the Padres are somehow even worse than the Giants, and that they have even less of an immediate future to look forward to.

And I love that, right now, Dodger partisans are dwelling on the wacky sequences of boots and flubs that allowed the Giants to win two straight come-from-behind wins. Gift-wrapped wins are just as sweet when another team gives them; they're even sweeter when they're given by the Dodgers.
