Post-game thread: Giants score runs off Josh Johnson, defeat Marlins

New, 1257 comments

Fighting the urge to get too giddy about one game...fighting it....

Last month, I would have rather watched the commentary track to the "Secret Window" DVD than watch the Giants offense against Josh Johnson. Tonight, it wasn’t as daunting. Fine, bring him on. We’ll counter with Aaron Rowand! and Edgar Renteria! and, uh, well maybe it was a little daunting. But it didn’t feel like an automatic loss like it might have in the past.

And the winning margin? Aaron Rowand! Edgar Renteria! Just like we all predicted before the game started. And while Juan Uribe had the tiebreaker, Andres Torres was the McCovey Chronicles Star of the Game (Sponsored by Evony and Noah’s Bagels). Josh Johnson didn’t retire him once. Without Torres, this game was another boring Caining.

This is the kind of game that good teams win. This is the kind of game that good teams win. This is the kind of game that good teams win.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be breathing into a paper bag, getting too giddy about one game. Great win. From a flat loss to an unexpected offensive surge against Josh Johnson. It might be magic, it might be nougat, but whatever’s inside is delicious. Wait...let me try that again.
