Kick 'em when they're down

Admit it. You like "piling on." It's OK. We all do. It is our Neanderthal heritage. See blood, go for the kill. Beneath our respectable, civil veneer lurks a flesh-ripping beast. Or not. So explain to me the sudden rush of "the Giants really suck" posts in the blogiverse. What gives? We all know they suck. Why the new-found desire to write about it? Three consecutive losing seasons--that didn't clue people in? Read 'em and weep, people. Better yet, jump in with both fists and start swinging.

1. Marc Hulet's "What are their options?" (The Baseball Analysts: Around the Minors, 20 Mar)
2. David Pinto's "Giant Headache" (Baseball Musings, 20 Mar)
3. Rob Merks' "Sweating Over the Bullpen" (Bugs & Cranks: SF Giants, 19 Mar)
4. RJ Anderson's "Team Previews" and "Barry Zito 100 Words" (Beyond the Boxscore, 13 & 18 Mar)

Hecklers: if you find a few more blog entries where they belabor the obvious (that we really suck), send the link.

UPDATE: If you aren't tuned in to ShysterBall, you now have another blog to read! Check out Craig Calcaterra's take on The Sabes-ster: "ALCHEMIST" from 18 March.

Negative Nellies
Work so hard just to say,
"Dude, I told you so."

Personally I didn't think any of those links were really NASTY enough. I'm really starting to feel signs of panic...I swear, if any thing bad happens to Tim or Matt...I might lose it.

I think this may be a winner!

Check out OBM for some seriously funny and heartbreaking anti-Giants rants. His latest ". . . Bad to worse" is terrific, following on the heels of the brilliant ". . . Two for one."
