Look, if you only want to look at the positives of the road trip, then you’ll focus like hell on the fact that the Giants went 3-3 in Arizona and Colorado. You’ll focus on how the team’s struggles against left-handed pitching will diminish once Evan Longoria returns.
I’m not sure if those are the only details to focus on. There’s a heavy context there, but no matter how narrow or broad your view of the season is, I think we can all agree that this weekend’s 4-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals is an absolute Must Win if the Giants have any chance of keeping their slim playoff hopes alive.
But it’s not just about the wins and losses! Because of the 60th Anniversary celebration, this weekend features the Crazy Crab scarf promotional giveaway on Saturday and the 2012 World Series team reunion on Sunday. StubHub has tickets to every game. Get them now!
Oh, you don’t know what I’m talking about when I say the Crazy Crab Scarf giveaway? Well then, TAKE A LOOK.
Just look at this beautiful thing.
The promotions are the best part of this Giants season, and with each passing day, we get closer to the Barry Bonds jersey retirement ceremony on August 11th, which is sure to be the biggest day of the season, playoffs or no.
