I seriously need to find a new sport.
The Giants lost tonight because Jonathan Lucroy had a two-out hit against Tim Lincecum. That’s what happens in baseball. Not all the time, not often, but it happens. It happens in April, and it happens in September. In September, though, it’s the beginning of the end of the world. And it’s just one of those things. We weren’t complaining when Lincecum drove in two runs against Mat Latos.
Oh, also of note is that the Giants lost tonight because THEY CAN’T STRING HITS TOGETHER. THEY CAN’T HIT FOR AVERAGE, AND THEY CAN’T HIT FOR POWER. THEY CAN’T TAKE A WALK, AND THEY CAN’T GET ON BASE THROUGH CATCHER’S INTERFERENCE. THEY SUCK RIGHT NOW. THEY SHOULD APOLOGIZE FOR WHAT THEY’VE DONE.
Other than that, though, it’s just one of those things. Gee whiz. Still in the hunt. Still in the race. Not acting like a playoff team, though.
If the June Giants could seal some runs from the Milwaukee series in Tupperware and mail them over, that’d be great.
