Star # 25 Loss (6-13) 4 whole innings 8 friggin' hits 4 runs 1 walk 5 strikeouts
Please pardon the weak attempt at humor in the title. Believe me when I say there will be nothing else that I could possibly mention today that might be pleasant or positive. In a season of seemingly never-ending drama, the Giants have (hopefully) hit the bottom...and, gee, lucky me, I get to chronicle it. Okay, so let me just get this done with (and then I can quickly take a shower!):
1. The Giants and Tim Lincecum lost to Stephen Strasburg and the impressive Washington Nationals, 6-4. Tim was simply outclassed by the new "future" of the NL pitching ranks. He is just so fucking hittable this year! Calm down, Jon... Timmeh is not even the worst news of the day, oh no, not by a long shot.
2. Melky Cabrera has had his spectacular season stopped, and possibly the Giants play-off hopes, by a huge stupid ass mistake. To his stupid ass credit, he does seem to own up to it and, oh say, not blame some testing protocol crap. Who knows how it will hurt the 2012 Giants ... but won't Melky feel it bad come next year at free agent time? Looks like those fans with the funny Melkman outfits can sell them on eBay. They won't get to wear them again at AT&T.
