There is no way that Kevin Correia has a bad game tonight. Stop. Don't entertain any optimism on this one. Don't invite the optimism in for a drink, don't tell the optimism a joke, and don't play "November Rain" on an acoustic guitar for optimism. Don't entertain any optimism in any way.
Look in your heart. You know it's true. Correia is a) trying to show up his old team, b) hittable if he gets behind in the count, and c) pitching in San Diego. What a convergence of Giants stinkiness that is.
It'll probably be a nice night. Go take a walk in the park. Don't forget about that Golden Girls marathon on the Hallmark Channel.
Don't worry about Lincecum. He'll pitch well. He'll allow a run or two, but he'll strike out a bunch and go deep into the game. Bochy will leave him in too long, but Lincecum won't give up too many runs.
But Kevin Correia is about to humiliate his old team. Count on it. This isn't me trying to appear pessimistic in order to reverse-jinx the Giants -- that wouldn't work. This is just me relaying factual information as objectively as possible. The Giants might score a run tonight, but it will be on a bases loaded double play.
Enjoy the game.
