I'm sure this one will add to the continuing bullshit spewed out by Giants brass about how "close" we are to being a winning team. That if we just "execute" better we will win all those fookin' endless goddamn "close" games. Whatta buncha crap. We stink. We aren't going to win those games. And why Yabu? (I didn't get to hear the game.) Why not Wilson? Is it because Yabu is a veteran and has savvy? Or does Brian Wilson have dengue fever? Or a bloody fookin' bloody hangnail?
M.C. threw too many pitches--114. And walked 4 guys. That means a short night. But 5 Ks and ZERO RUNS ALLOWED ain't bad. Of course we lose. Winning means scoring runs. We have an organizational policy directly opposed to that. We only hire fellows who make lots of outs. It is cheaper that way. Guys who get on base make the game go longer. Now, you can only eat so many goddamn hot dogs or suck down so many lattés. At a certain point your basic fan just pulls the plug on the $8.00/beer scam and hunkers down in case there's a foul ball to scramble for. So, if they are done paying, get 'em the hell out. That's where the "anti-safe" policy of hiring out-makers pays off. Games end faster, cusotdians and vendors and ushers all go home earlier, the lights go off sooner, all brilliant money-saving moves. And the best part? Fans wake up from the three-tequilas-past-the-puke-point ballgame they just consumed feeling better about it from an increased night's rest. Yeah. More hours in the sack, less time spent thinking about the damn Giants. Those suits in marketing are hella smart, aren't they?
