Not exactly what I had in mind, you know? I watched the game until they took out Zito in the 6th. We got overmatched by their rookie. You Haft to love this:
Unfortunately for the Giants, Bochy, general manager Brian Sabean and the coaching staff have spent countless hours trying to devise ways enliven the offense.
That's verbatim. There's a comma or two missing, I think, and some tortured syntax. It certainly is "unfortunate" that we are still "trying to devise ways." How about John the Conqueroo? A couple of laps around the rosary beads? An encounter session with Eckhart Tolle? Anything thing but Brian Sabean's "enlivenings." (There's always getting some TALENT, but we won't go there. I'm starting to count the days until Buster Posey gets a call-up.) OK, sorry, no more bashing the feeble offense and the even feebler front office. It's too old. It's too easy.
Matt Cain tomorrow. Great matchup with Santana (bring the good mojo, alouredux!). Let's hope we give Big Sugar a fighting chance.
